'''Red''' (French: '''Red''', German: '''Rot''', Italian: '''Rosso''', Spanish: '''Rojo''', Chinese '''小紅''' ''Xiao Hong'', Korean '''레드''' ''Redeu'', Hangul phonetic of Red) is the main playable character in the [[Generation I]] games and is the male choice in their [[Generation III]] remakes. In Generation III, his female counterpart is [[Leaf (game)|Leaf]].
 
   
Red is a curious 11-year-old boy from [[Pallet Town]] in the beginning of his adventure. The [[Generation I]] instruction booklets explain that Red became interested in Pokémon after his best friend, [[Blue (game)|Blue]], stopped playing with him and became a bully. His adventure begins one day when [[Professor Oak]] calls the two of them to his lab and gives them a [[Starter Pokémon|choice of Pokémon]]. Blue, of course, eager to outdo Red, challenges him to a match as soon as they get them. Later, Professor Oak calls the boys back and gives them a mission: to fulfil his dream of completing the Pokédex. Blue arrogantly states that Red isn't necessary, then the two each start their own adventure.
+
'''Red''' (Japanese: '''レッド''' ''Red'') is the [[canon]] name of the {{player|player character}} in the [[Generation I]] games [[Pokémon Red and Green Versions|Pokémon Red, Green]], [[Pokémon Blue Version (Japanese)|Blue]], and {{v2|Yellow}} and the male choice in their [[Generation III]] remakes {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, where his female counterpart is {{ga|Green|Leaf}}. Prior to [[Generation II]], he was officially referred to as '''Satoshi''' (Japanese: '''{{j|サトシ}}''').
   
Red travels the whole of Kanto, filling in the [[Pokédex]] and defeating [[Gym Leader]]s to get the [[HM|skills he needs]] to continue, though his [[rival]] Blue is constantly one step ahead, and shows up quite a few times to impede his progress. When Red eventually reaches the [[Elite Four]], he finds that Blue has beaten him there yet again and has become the [[Indigo League|league]] [[Pokémon champion|champion]]. Red defeats Blue in their final conflict, and becomes the champion himself, though he doesn't stay.
+
Red is known throughout the [[Pokémon world]] as the {{pkmn|Champion}} from [[Pallet Town]], as well as a living legend for his defeat of [[Team Rocket]] in [[Kanto]] during his quest. He is the final opponent in the [[Generation II]] games {{game2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}}, their [[Generation IV]] remakes {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, and {{g|Stadium 2}}. He is a participant in the [[Pokémon World Tournament]]'s [[Champions Tournament]] in {{game|Black and White|s|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|2}} and works as a boss of the [[Battle Tree]] alongside {{ga|Blue}} in the [[Generation VII]] games {{pkmn|Sun and Moon|Sun, Moon}}, {{pkmn|Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon|Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon}}. In [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]], he appears as the highest-level Trainer in the game, capable of being challenged after defeating six [[Master Trainer]]s.
[[Image:Game character red.png|thumb|left|Red from Generation I]]
 
Red's main conflict in the games, aside from Blue, is [[Team Rocket]], an infamous group of Pokémon thieves. Red clashes with [[Team Rocket]] at many times in his quest. He defeats a group of grunts at [[Mt. Moon]] who are attempting to steal rare Pokémon [[fossil]]s, and defeats another group ahead at a bridge in [[Cerulean City]]. Red protects the [[Pokémon Tower]] and [[Mr. Fuji]] in [[Lavender Town]] and destroys their hold on the [[Celadon Game Corner|Game Corner]]. After he foils their plot to take over [[Silph Co.]], Red encounters [[Giovanni]] as the final Gym Leader back in [[Viridian City]]. Upon defeating him, Red stops the group's world domination plots once and for all, though a few remaining grunts, many who appeared and were defeated by Red on [[Chrono Island]] in [[Generation III]], would try to band together in [[Johto]] to try and revive the group.
 
 
By the [[Generation II]] games, he is no longer the Champion and [[Lance]] has become one. Red is titled just [[Pokémon Trainer]] in this Generation, and it is debated whether or not he qualifies as a [[Pokémon Master]]. He trains constantly on [[Mt. Silver]] and doesn't say anything to any [[Pokémon trainer|trainers]] he may come across. When [[Gold (game)|Gold]] or [[Kris (game)|Kris]] meets Red in Mt. Silver, Red has the highest leveled [[party|team]] an opponent has ever had in the series.
 
   
Red also appears in [[Pokémon Stadium 2]] as the last trainer players face in the combined [[Gym Leader Castle]], after the defeat of all of the others.

Red is introduced as a curious 11-year-old (10 in the European releases) boy from [[Pallet Town]]. According to the instruction manuals of Pokémon Red, Green, and Blue Versions, Red gained an interest in Pokémon after his best friend, {{ga|Blue}}, stopped playing with him and became a bully, although in the games [[Professor Oak]] says the two have been rivals since infancy. His adventure begins one day when Professor Oak calls the two to his lab for a [[starter Pokémon]]. Red has a choice of a {{p|Bulbasaur}}, {{p|Charmander}}, or {{p|Squirtle}}{{sup/1|G}}{{sup/1|RB}}{{sup/3|FRLG}}. Depending on the Pokémon that Red chooses, Blue will choose the Pokémon that has a type advantage over it{{sup/1|G}}{{sup/1|RB}}{{sup/3|FRLG}}. In {{game|Yellow}}, Red was originally intended to get an {{p|Eevee}}, which was swiped by Blue. As a result, Blue keeps the Eevee and Red receives a {{ga|Red's Pikachu|Pikachu}} that Professor Oak caught earlier{{sup/1|Y}}. Blue challenges Red to a battle immediately to test out his new Pokémon, thinking he will easily beat Red.

+
After Red has made his way to [[Viridian City]] to the north and taken [[Parcel|a package]] back to Oak in Pallet Town, Oak gives Red and Blue each a [[Pokédex]] with which to record data on all known Pokémon in the Kanto region to fulfill Oak's dream of creating a full guide on all Pokémon in Kanto. From here, Red and Blue journey across Kanto, collecting Pokémon to build up their teams, and defeating each of the [[Gym Leader]]s in turn, with Blue always one step ahead, showing up from time to time to impede Red's progress.

+
Red also comes across a gang of Pokémon thieves, [[Team Rocket]], several times through his journey. He first encounters them trying to steal fossils within Mount Moon. Then he encounters a member who is running the [[Nugget Bridge]] challenge to recruit for the organization on {{rt|24|Kanto}}; and another lone member who has stolen a [[TM]] from a family in [[Cerulean City]]. Eventually, Red uncovers a plot by Team Rocket, infiltrating their [[Team Rocket Hideout|hideout]] beneath the [[Celadon Game Corner]] and encountering their boss, [[Giovanni]]. Defeating him and ousting Team Rocket from Celadon, Red uses the [[Silph Scope]] that Giovanni leaves behind to battle {{type|Ghost}} Pokémon and save [[Mr. Fuji]] in the [[Pokémon Tower]] in [[Lavender Town]], who is being held hostage by Team Rocket. Red soon journeys into Saffron City in the heart of Kanto to find it overrun by Team Rocket, who is attempting to take the recently invented [[Master Ball]] from the [[Silph Co.]] President, and defeats Giovanni again, ending the group's plots for the time being.

With seven Badges in hand, Red encounters Giovanni for the final time—this time as the [[Gym Leader|Leader]] of the [[Viridian Gym]], his final obstacle before the [[Elite Four]] of [[Indigo Plateau]]. Red defeats him in battle, earning his eighth and final Badge—the {{Badge|Earth}}. He disbands Team Rocket, promising to go into solo training to become a better Trainer.

+
Making it through {{ka|Victory Road}} and finally to Indigo Plateau, Red challenges the [[Indigo League]]. First, he defeats the Elite Four and discovers, to his surprise, that Blue has defeated them before him and is therefore the {{pkmn|Champion}} of Kanto. Red defeats Blue in the final battle, becoming the Champion himself, but then continues his training, rather than staying at Indigo Plateau. Encountering an offshoot of Team Rocket in the southern [[Sevii Islands]], lead by Executive [[Archer]], Red reveals with his Earth Badge that Giovanni has disbanded the organization, and, though defeated, the group there intends to revive Team Rocket and bring Giovanni back, having already made plans to force Pokémon to evolve with radio waves.
  +
  +
Red continues as a wandering Trainer, eventually making his way to the caves of [[Mt. Silver]], where he trains his Pokémon alone. In the process, he becomes so distant from the people close to him that he does not even talk to his mom via phone anymore.
  +
  +
Eventually, {{ga|Ethan}}, {{ga|Kris}}, or {{ga|Lyra}} arrives at Mt. Silver and challenges Red, identified only as a [[Pokémon Trainer]]. If defeated, Red vanishes from Mt. Silver, and returns every time the Elite Four is defeated again by the player of Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, or SoulSilver.
  +
  +
Some time later, Red has been shown to finally come back into public life, as he enters the [[Champions Tournament]] of the [[Pokémon World Tournament]] in the [[Unova]] region. In {{game4|Sun|Moon|Sun|Moon}}, a visibly older Red is invited to work as the boss of [[Alola]]'s [[Battle Tree]] along with Blue. When {{ga|Elio}} or {{ga|Selene}} first visits the Battle Tree, they will encounter Red and Blue and battle one of them. After Red{{sup/7|SMUSUM}} or Blue{{sup/7|USUM}} is defeated at the Battle Tree proper, Red will reward the player with a full set of Kanto starter [[Mega Stone]]s.
  +
  +
Red makes an appearance in [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]]. If the player has defeated at least six [[Master Trainer]]s and has six Pokémon in their [[party]], Red can be found by the Indigo Plateau, where he may be challenged to a battle. Like during all Master Trainer battles, the player isn't allowed to use [[item]]s from their [[Bag]] during this battle. After being defeated, Red will grant the player the title of [[Pokémon Master|Battle Master]] before leaving, though he will reappear for a [[rematch]] each time the player defeats the Elite Four.
  +
  +
Red also appears in [[Pokémon Stadium 2]]. He can be battled in the Kanto [[Gym Leader Castle]] after the player has defeated all eight Kanto Gym Leaders, being the final opponent the player must defeat in order to clear the Gym Leader Castle challenge.
  +
  +
===Pokémon===
  +
As the player character, Red can have on his team any of the 151 Pokémon available during [[Generation I]]. In [[Generation III]], he can have any of the 386 Pokémon available at that time, though only after the player has obtained the [[National Pokédex]].
  +
  +
When he is encountered as an opponent in [[Generation II]] and [[Generation IV]], Red has a set team, based on Generation I in-game event Pokémon, and has the highest leveled trained Pokémon yet encountered in the series, with his {{ga|Red's Pikachu|Pikachu}} at level 81 in Generation II and at level 88 in Generation IV. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, when he is defeated, all Pokémon in the player's party receive the {{DL|List of Ribbons in the games|Legend Ribbon}}.
  +
  +
In {{game|Black and White|s|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|2}}, he can be fought in the [[Pokémon World Tournament]]'s [[Champions Tournament]], using the same team he did in Generation IV, albeit with different movesets.
  +
  +
In {{game4|Sun|Moon|Sun|Moon}}, Red once again uses his team from Generation IV, just with altered movesets. When battled in the [[Battle Tree]] proper, Red will use a randomly selected team from a preset selection of Pokémon.
  +
  +
In [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]], Red's team has notable differences to his previous [[core series]] teams, including Pokémon that he's never used in any of his previous NPC appearances.
  +
  +
In [[Pokémon Stadium 2]], Red uses vastly different sets of Pokémon than in any of his other appearances, only sharing a couple Pokémon with the teams he uses in the core series. Notably, this is the only game where he's not seen using his Pikachu.

Red himself appears as a playable character in [[Super Smash Bros. Brawl]], named only as "Pokémon Trainer", with a team consisting of {{p|Squirtle}}, {{p|Ivysaur}}, and {{p|Charizard}}. Rather than fighting himself, like the other human characters, Red sends his three Pokémon into battle, switching between them in order. He is voiced by [[Michele Knotz]] in the English version and 半場友恵 ''[[Tomoe Hanba]]'' in the Japanese version.

Battle's 100-battle challenge, as well as compete in Colosseum battles. Red also made a brief appearance in the debut trailer of [[Pokémon Battle Revolution]], having a [[Double Battle]] against {{ga|Leaf}}, using a {{p|Deoxys}} in its Attack Forme and a {{p|Wailord}}. Despite this, he didn't appear in the final cut of the game.

==Counterparts==
 
==Counterparts==
[[Ash Ketchum]] from the [[anime]] and [[The Electric Tale of Pikachu]] manga was designed based on Red. Furthermore, Ash's name comes from one of the optional names for Red. This has caused many fans to mistake Red for his anime counterpart. However, they are not the same and using one's name for the other is always a big mistake. There are also many fans that believe that the main hero from [[Pokémon Yellow]] game is Ash. This is also untrue. [[Pokémon Yellow|Yellow's]] protagonist is still Red but slightly redesigned to look more similar to Ash, much like the storyline was designed to be closer to the anime.
+
===In the anime===
  +
====In the main series====
  +
{{main|Ash Ketchum}}
  +
{{main|Ash Ketchum (M20)}}
  +
[[File:Ash debut.png|thumb|220px|left|Ash Ketchum, Red's {{pkmn|anime}} counterpart]]
  +
Red's [[Cross-canon counterpart|anime counterpart]], introduced in the [[EP001|first episode]], is the anime's main character, Ash Ketchum. Like Red, Ash is from Pallet Town, on a {{pkmn|journey}} to become a Pokémon Master. Unlike Red, Ash's journey did not end with Kanto, and Ash has continued through every other region introduced in the [[core series]] games, as well as the [[Orange Archipelago]] south of Kanto, taking the place of the player characters of Generation II during Johto and Generation V during Unova, and being joined by the anime counterparts of {{ga|May}}, {{ga|Dawn}}, and {{ga|Serena}} during the Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Kalos sagas. Instead of starting with one of the standard three Kanto starters, however, Ash began his journey with a {{AP|Pikachu}}, inspiring {{game|Yellow}}'s creation, as well as causing some to consider Red and Ash to be exactly the same person, most especially due to Red owning {{ga|Red's Pikachu|one}} as well.
   
Another anime counterpart could be [[Ritchie]], another character with a [[Sparky|Pikachu]], who some see as a "perfect" manifestation of Ash, and a more closely-designed character to the original Red.
+
Red has another anime counterpart, {{OBP|Ash Ketchum|M20|an alternate Ash Ketchum}}, who appeared in ''[[M20|I Choose You!]]'' and ''[[M21|The Power of Us]]''; these {{series2|Sun & Moon}} {{pkmn|movie}}s are set in a timeline separate from the main series. This Ash shares the same basic characteristics as the main Ash.
   
Other counterparts include [[Red (Special)|Red]] from Pokémon Special manga, [[Satoshi (Zensho)|Satoshi]] from [[Pokémon Zensho]] manga, [[Isamu Akai]] from [[Pocket Monsters (manga)|Pocket Monsters]] manga, who also made a cameo appearance in anime, and [[Shuu]] from [[Pokémon Getto Da Ze!]] manga.
+
====In Pokémon Origins====
  +
{{main|Red (Origins)}}
  +
[[File:Blaine Arcanine PO.png|thumb|220px|Red in [[Pokémon Origins]]]]
  +
Red also had a direct counterpart that appeared as the main character of the [[Pokémon Origins]] mini-series, which takes place in a separate continuity. This counterpart shared Red's name, in-game role, and design from FireRed and LeafGreen.
   
  +
====In Pokémon Generations====
  +
[[File:Red PG.png|thumb|220px|left|Red in [[Pokémon Generations]]]]
  +
Another direct counterpart of Red appeared in [[Pokémon Generations]]. He first appeared in ''[[PG01|The Adventure]]'', where he {{pkmn2|caught}} a {{ga|Red's Pikachu|Pikachu}} in [[Viridian Forest]]. He then went on to experience various other adventures with his Pikachu across other regions, during which he encountered various {{pkmn2|wild}} and [[Legendary Pokémon]].
  +
  +
Red briefly reappeared at the end of ''[[PG03|The Challenger]]'', having just defeated the [[Elite Four]] at [[Indigo Plateau]], and preparing to challenge {{ga|Blue}} for the title of the {{pkmn|Champion}}.
  +
  +
Like the [[core series]] games, Red is not heard speaking during his appearances.

Red encountered Pikachu while in [[Viridian Forest]]. He sent out his {{p|Bulbasaur}} against it, but {{pkmn2|caught}} it in a {{i|Poké Ball}} without battling. After catching it, Red immediately let it out its Poké Ball and had it battle a {{p|Caterpie}}.
  +
  +
Pikachu continued to travel with its trainer throughout [[Johto]], [[Hoenn]], [[Sinnoh]], [[Unova]], and [[Kalos]], battling against Pokémon such as {{p|Wooper}}, {{p|Vigoroth}}, {{p|Probopass}}, {{p|Regigigas}}, {{p|Volcarona}}, and {{p|Noivern}}.}}
  +
  +
* When Red caught Pikachu, he was revealed to have already obtained at least two other Pokémon besides Bulbasaur.
  +
  +

  +
This listing is of the [[Badge]]s Red has obtained in the [[Kanto]] region:

====In the Pokémon Masters Trailer====
  +
[[File:Pokémon Masters Animated Trailer.png|thumb|250px|Red (background) with {{ga|Blue}} in the [[Pokémon Masters Animated Trailer]]]]
  +
Red briefly appeared in the [[Pokémon Masters Animated Trailer]]. Alongside {{ga|Blue}}, he observed, from afar on a balcony, a {{pkmn|battle}} between two trios: [[Bettie]], [[Iris]], and {{ga|Barry}}; and [[Skyla]], {{EF|Flint}}, and [[Acerola]].
  +
  +
===In the manga===
  +
Red, like most player characters, also has several counterparts in various Pokémon manga series.
  +
  +
====In the Pokémon Adventures manga====
  +
{{main|Red (Adventures)}}
  +
Red is Red's direct counterpart in [[Pokémon Adventures]].
  +
  +
====In the Pokémon Gold & Silver: The Golden Boys manga====
  +
Red was briefly mentioned in ''[[GB02|Falkner The Bird Keeper's Challenge!!]]'' by [[Professor Oak]], who said that {{GnB|Gold}} looks similar to him. However, due to the manga ending soon after Gold reaching [[Cianwood City]], Red was never physically seen.
  +
  +
====In the Pocket Monsters HGSS Jō's Big Adventure manga====
  +
[[File:Red JBA.png|thumb|150px|Red in Pocket Monsters HGSS Jō's Big Adventure]]
  +
Red debuted as a silhouette in [[JBA5]]. He then physically debuted in [[JBA6]]. He was first mentioned by {{ga|Blue}} after [[Jō]]'s battle with the {{ci|Viridian}} [[Gym Leader]]. Jō later encountered Red when he reached the top of [[Mt. Silver]], ready to battle him.

==Trivia==
  +
[[File:GameFreak 1997 fanbook MC Satoshi.jpg|right|thumb|152px|Red was once called "Satoshi" by Game Freak]]
  +
[[File:Ash hat OS concept art.jpg|right|thumb|160px|Concept art of original series Ash's hat]]
  +
* In the '''''Official Fan Book of Pocket Monsters''''' (Japanese: '''{{j|ポケットモンスター公式ファンブック}}''') from 1997, [[Game Freak]] teased the supposed appearances of Red, [[Professor Oak]], and [[Giovanni]] in the upcoming {{game|Gold and Silver|s}} games.<ref>[http://hakuda2.web.fc2.com/ir/poke4/b5.html ボツポケモン応援隊] ([https://archive.is/JR0Yn archived copy])</ref> They called Red '''Satoshi''' (Japanese: '''{{j|サトシ}}'''), the Japanese name of his anime counterpart {{Ash}}, which is also the namesake of the [[Satoshi Tajiri|creator of the franchise]] and one of his default names, indicating that this is what they originally intended to call him before settling on the name "Red", one of the two original color versions of the games.
  +
** {{ga|Ethan}}'s name was also hardcoded as Satoshi in the {{wp|Nintendo Space World}} 1997 demo of {{game|Gold and Silver|s}}.
  +
* Red's title screen and profile front sprites from {{game|Red and Green|s}} correspond to his earlier [[Capsule Monsters]] artwork instead of his final [[Generation I]] artwork. His title screen sprite was updated in {{game|Blue| (Japanese)}} but the profile front sprite remained unchanged.
  +
** In {{game|Yellow}}, he has no title screen sprite and his front sprite is updated in part to match his official artwork and possibly in part to match [[Ash Ketchum]], his anime counterpart, as the frontal section of his hat has the same division in the middle as [[Ash's hat]] from the {{series|original}}.
  +
* Ash's hat in the {{series|original}} of the {{pkmn|anime}} was initially designed to be similar to Red's hat from {{game|Red and Green|s}} before undergoing several changes until the final design.
  +
* Red's [[party]] in the Generation II games and {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} is based heavily on in-game events from the Generation I games and {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}:
  +
** {{p|Charizard}}, {{p|Venusaur}}, {{p|Blastoise}}, and {{p|Pikachu}} are the [[game mascot]]s of the four Generation I games: Pokémon Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow. They are also available in all iterations of the original [[Kanto]] plot;
  +
** {{p|Espeon}} could have been obtained as an {{p|Eevee}} in [[Celadon City]], and Eevee notably serves as {{ga|Blue}}'s {{pkmn2|starter}} in Pokémon Yellow;
  +
** {{p|Lapras}} is given away by a [[Silph Co.]] employee shortly before [[Team Rocket]] is defeated there;
  +
** Two {{p|Snorlax}} are required to be caught or defeated in order to travel to [[Fuchsia City]]. Furthermore, in the Generation II games and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, only the Snorlax that was previously blocking {{rt|12|Kanto}} (now blocking the entrance to [[Diglett's Cave]]) is available to the {{player}}, suggesting that Red defeated and caught the one blocking {{rt|16|Kanto}}.
  +
*** All of these {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} are also obtainable within Pokémon Yellow: {{ga|Red's Pikachu|Pikachu}} is obtained as the starter Pokémon; Venusaur can be evolved from the {{p|Bulbasaur}} obtained in [[Cerulean City]]; Blastoise can be evolved from the {{p|Squirtle}} obtained in [[Vermilion City]]; Charizard can be evolved from the {{p|Charmander}} obtained on {{rt|24|Kanto}}; and Snorlax, Eevee, and Lapras can be obtained by the aforementioned in-game events.
  +
*** In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the four game mascots all know their [[Generation III]] [[signature move]]s: Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise know {{m|Frenzy Plant}}, {{m|Blast Burn}} and {{m|Hydro Cannon}}, respectively, while Pikachu knows {{m|Volt Tackle}}. Furthermore, his Pikachu's moveset coincides with the four moves that [[Ash's Pikachu]] used during the {{series|Diamond & Pearl}} of the anime: Volt Tackle, {{m|Quick Attack}}, {{m|Iron Tail}}, and {{m|Thunderbolt}}.
  +
** In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, apart from his Venusaur and Blastoise being fully evolved, Red's team is identical to that of [[Ash Ketchum]] throughout most of the [[S02|Orange Islands]] anime arc ([[Ash's Bulbasaur]] and {{AP|Squirtle}} were at the time, and still are presently, in their base forms).
  +
* At level 88, Red's Pikachu in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}} is the highest-leveled Pokémon owned by a non-player character outside of battle facilities.
  +
** However, in {{game|Black and White|s}}, the level of {{tc|Lass}} Dye's {{p|Whimsicott}}{{sup/5|B}}/{{p|Lilligant}}{{sup/5|W}} in [[Nacrene City]] is variable and can exceed that of Red's Pikachu, depending on the level of the Pokémon that is [[trade]]d to her.
  +
* When Red is encountered at the summit of Mt. Silver during Generation II and Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, he has no speech, merely repeating sets of {{wp|ellipsis|ellipses}} <!--2 sets of regular 3-dot ellipses in English GSC and 2 sets of 18-dot ellipses in English HGSS; 10 sets (GSC)/6 sets (HGSS) sets of 2 midline horizontal ellipses each in the Japanese versions--> before beginning the {{pkmn|battle}}. This is a reference to his silent role in [[Generation I]], as he only answered choice questions like <sc>Yes</sc> or <sc>No</sc>. This unique characteristic remains in later [[generation]]s, especially in the [[remake]]s.
  +
** In {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, {{ga|Blue}} sarcastically calls him a "chatty gossip".
  +
*** Blue also jokes about this in [[Pokémon Sun and Moon|Sun, Moon]], [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon|Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon]].
  +
** Despite the ellipses before the battle, when talking to {{OBP|Copycat|character}} in Generation I and Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, the dialogue is the following:
  +
  +
{{sign|FRLGspeech|header}}
  +
{{sign|FRLGspeech|<Player>: Hi!}}
  +
{{sign|FRLGspeech|Do you like POKéMON?}}
  +
{{sign|FRLGspeech|}}

{{sign|FRLGspeech|<Player>: Uh, no, I just asked you.}}
  +
{{sign|FRLGspeech|}}

{{sign|FRLGspeech|<Player>: Huh?}}

{{sign|FRLGspeech|You’re strange!}}
  +
{{sign|FRLGspeech|}}

{{sign|FRLGspeech|COPYCAT: Hmm? Quit mimicking?}}
  +
{{sign|FRLGspeech|But, that’s my favorite hobby!}}
  +
{{sign|FRLGspeech|footer}}
  +
  +
::Similarly, after giving Copycat a {{DL|Escape item|Poké Doll}} and receiving [[TM31]]{{sup/1|RGBY}} or having her teach {{m|Mimic}} to a compatible {{OBP|Pokémon|species}}{{sup/3|FRLG}} in return, another brief chatter ensues if the player talks to her again:
  +
  +
{{sign|FRLGspeech|header}}
  +
{{sign|FRLGspeech|<Player>: Hi!}}
  +
{{sign|FRLGspeech|Thanks for earlier!}}
  +
{{sign|FRLGspeech|}}

{{sign|FRLGspeech|It’s a scream!}}
  +
{{sign|FRLGspeech|footer}}
  +
  +
::This implies that Red is speaking.
  +
* Hidden data in the [[Generation I]] games reveals placeholder names for Red and {{ga|Blue}}:
  +
** The unused default name for Red in the English [[Generation I]] games is <sc>[[Nintendo|Ninten]]</sc> while {{ga|Blue}}'s is <sc>{{wp|Sony}}</sc>. While it is impossible to view these names during regular gameplay, changing a few {{wp|memory address}}es in {{wp|Random-access memory|RAM}} can allow for these names to appear as shown [http://acmlm.kafuka.org/board/thread.php?pid=18912#18912 here]. This references the fact that in the years surrounding the releases of the Generation I games, Sony was Nintendo's main competition. {{wb|Ninten}} is also the default name of the main protagonist of {{wb|Mother (video game)|Mother}}, a game developed by [[Creatures, Inc.]].
  +
** In the Japanese [[Generation I]] games, the unused default names for Red and Blue differ between {{game|Red and Green|s}} and {{game|Blue| (Japanese)}} and then between the latter and {{game|Yellow}}<ref>[http://iimarck.us/i/default-names/ Default names]</ref>:
  +
*** In Pokémon Red and Green, Red's unused default name is やまぐち ''Yamaguchi'' while Blue's is いしはら ''Ishihara''. Yamaguchi refers to Wataru Yamaguchi, an art director that worked on the original games, while Ishihara refers to [[Tsunekazu Ishihara]], the current president and {{wp|Chief executive officer|CEO}} of [[The Pokémon Company]] and who was the games' producer at the time.
  +
*** In Pokémon Blue, the unused default names for Red and Blue are, respectively, ゲーフリ ''Gēfuri'', an abbreviation of [[Game Freak]]'s name in Japanese (ゲームフリーク ''Gēmu Furīku''), and クリチャ ''Kuricha'', a reference to [[Creatures, Inc.]]
  +
*** In {{game|Yellow}}, Blue's unused default name remained unaltered while Red's was subtly altered by gaining an extra digit (ゲーフリ1).
  +
* Much like there is minimal information on his {{Ash|anime counterpart}}'s father, Red's father is mentioned only briefly when examining an {{wp|Super Nintendo Entertainment System|SNES}} at the [[Celadon Department Store]] in the [[Generation I]] games and {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}.
  +
* In {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, Red is the only {{pkmn|Trainer}} who uses the {{pkmn|battle}} transition effect from [[Generation II]].
  +
* All of his anime and manga counterparts also own a {{p|Pikachu}}, excluding {{Zensho|Satoshi}} from Pokémon Zensho who evolved his one into a {{p|Raichu}}.
  +
* Along with {{ga|Blue}}, [[Lance]], and the [[Generation I]] and {{Gen|III}} [[Kanto]] [[Gym Leader]]s (excluding Giovanni and Koga), Red has appeared in almost every [[generation]] of the [[Pokémon games]], with six out of seven so far. He is the only protagonist with this feat.
  +
* Red and [[Lance]] share the same unique {{pkmn|Champion}} battle music in [[Johto]]-based games and {{game|Black and White|s|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|2}}'s [[Champions Tournament]].
  +
* Red's T-shirt in [[Pokémon Sun and Moon|Sun, Moon]], [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon|Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon]] bears the number 96, referencing the original Japanese release year of Pokémon Red and Green.
  +
* Red is the only protagonist to be fought, as an NPC, outside of the generation he was introduced in. The games being in {{game|Gold and Silver|s}}, {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, {{game|Black and White|s|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|2}}, [[Pokémon Sun and Moon]], [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon]], and [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]].
  +
** As of Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, Red is the only protagonist to not be a playable character in the remakes of the generation that he was introduced in.
  +
* A Trainer closely resembling an older Red briefly appears in ''{{mov|Detective Pikachu}}'', where he is shown in a promotional advertisement on the train to [[Ryme City]]. This Trainer is played by Japanese actor Ryoma Takeuchi.

Red (Japanese: レッド Red) is the canon name of the player character in the Generation I games Pokémon Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow and the male choice in their Generation III remakes Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, where his female counterpart is Leaf. Prior to Generation II, he was officially referred to as Satoshi (Japanese: サトシ).

Red is known throughout the Pokémon world as the Champion from Pallet Town, as well as a living legend for his defeat of Team Rocket in Kanto during his quest. He is the final opponent in the Generation II games Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, their Generation IV remakes Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, and Pokémon Stadium 2. He is a participant in the Pokémon World Tournament's Champions Tournament in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 and works as a boss of the Battle Tree alongside Blue in the Generation VII games Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon. In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, he appears as the highest-level Trainer in the game, capable of being challenged after defeating six Master Trainers.

Contents

In the games

201 Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details. 201

Red is introduced as a curious 11-year-old (10 in the European releases) boy from Pallet Town. According to the instruction manuals of Pokémon Red, Green, and Blue Versions, Red gained an interest in Pokémon after his best friend, Blue, stopped playing with him and became a bully, although in the games Professor Oak says the two have been rivals since infancy. His adventure begins one day when Professor Oak calls the two to his lab for a starter Pokémon. Red has a choice of a Bulbasaur, Charmander, or SquirtleGRBFRLG. Depending on the Pokémon that Red chooses, Blue will choose the Pokémon that has a type advantage over itGRBFRLG. In Pokémon Yellow, Red was originally intended to get an Eevee, which was swiped by Blue. As a result, Blue keeps the Eevee and Red receives a Pikachu that Professor Oak caught earlierY. Blue challenges Red to a battle immediately to test out his new Pokémon, thinking he will easily beat Red.

After Red has made his way to Viridian City to the north and taken a package back to Oak in Pallet Town, Oak gives Red and Blue each a Pokédex with which to record data on all known Pokémon in the Kanto region to fulfill Oak's dream of creating a full guide on all Pokémon in Kanto. From here, Red and Blue journey across Kanto, collecting Pokémon to build up their teams, and defeating each of the Gym Leaders in turn, with Blue always one step ahead, showing up from time to time to impede Red's progress.

Red also comes across a gang of Pokémon thieves, Team Rocket, several times through his journey. He first encounters them trying to steal fossils within Mount Moon. Then he encounters a member who is running the Nugget Bridge challenge to recruit for the organization on Route 24; and another lone member who has stolen a TM from a family in Cerulean City. Eventually, Red uncovers a plot by Team Rocket, infiltrating their hideout beneath the Celadon Game Corner and encountering their boss, Giovanni. Defeating him and ousting Team Rocket from Celadon, Red uses the Silph Scope that Giovanni leaves behind to battle Ghost-type Pokémon and save Mr. Fuji in the Pokémon Tower in Lavender Town, who is being held hostage by Team Rocket. Red soon journeys into Saffron City in the heart of Kanto to find it overrun by Team Rocket, who is attempting to take the recently invented Master Ball from the Silph Co. President, and defeats Giovanni again, ending the group's plots for the time being.

With seven Badges in hand, Red encounters Giovanni for the final time—this time as the Leader of the Viridian Gym, his final obstacle before the Elite Four of Indigo Plateau. Red defeats him in battle, earning his eighth and final Badge—the Earth Badge. He disbands Team Rocket, promising to go into solo training to become a better Trainer.

Making it through Victory Road and finally to Indigo Plateau, Red challenges the Indigo League. First, he defeats the Elite Four and discovers, to his surprise, that Blue has defeated them before him and is therefore the Champion of Kanto. Red defeats Blue in the final battle, becoming the Champion himself, but then continues his training, rather than staying at Indigo Plateau. Encountering an offshoot of Team Rocket in the southern Sevii Islands, lead by Executive Archer, Red reveals with his Earth Badge that Giovanni has disbanded the organization, and, though defeated, the group there intends to revive Team Rocket and bring Giovanni back, having already made plans to force Pokémon to evolve with radio waves.

Red continues as a wandering Trainer, eventually making his way to the caves of Mt. Silver, where he trains his Pokémon alone. In the process, he becomes so distant from the people close to him that he does not even talk to his mom via phone anymore.

Eventually, Ethan, Kris, or Lyra arrives at Mt. Silver and challenges Red, identified only as a Pokémon Trainer. If defeated, Red vanishes from Mt. Silver, and returns every time the Elite Four is defeated again by the player of Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, or SoulSilver.

Some time later, Red has been shown to finally come back into public life, as he enters the Champions Tournament of the Pokémon World Tournament in the Unova region. In Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon, a visibly older Red is invited to work as the boss of Alola's Battle Tree along with Blue. When Elio or Selene first visits the Battle Tree, they will encounter Red and Blue and battle one of them. After RedSMUSUM or BlueUSUM is defeated at the Battle Tree proper, Red will reward the player with a full set of Kanto starter Mega Stones.

Red makes an appearance in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!. If the player has defeated at least six Master Trainers and has six Pokémon in their party, Red can be found by the Indigo Plateau, where he may be challenged to a battle. Like during all Master Trainer battles, the player isn't allowed to use items from their Bag during this battle. After being defeated, Red will grant the player the title of Battle Master before leaving, though he will reappear for a rematch each time the player defeats the Elite Four.

Red also appears in Pokémon Stadium 2. He can be battled in the Kanto Gym Leader Castle after the player has defeated all eight Kanto Gym Leaders, being the final opponent the player must defeat in order to clear the Gym Leader Castle challenge.

Pokémon

As the player character, Red can have on his team any of the 151 Pokémon available during Generation I. In Generation III, he can have any of the 386 Pokémon available at that time, though only after the player has obtained the National Pokédex.

When he is encountered as an opponent in Generation II and Generation IV, Red has a set team, based on Generation I in-game event Pokémon, and has the highest leveled trained Pokémon yet encountered in the series, with his Pikachu at level 81 in Generation II and at level 88 in Generation IV. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, when he is defeated, all Pokémon in the player's party receive the Legend Ribbon.

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, he can be fought in the Pokémon World Tournament's Champions Tournament, using the same team he did in Generation IV, albeit with different movesets.

In Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon, Red once again uses his team from Generation IV, just with altered movesets. When battled in the Battle Tree proper, Red will use a randomly selected team from a preset selection of Pokémon.

In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, Red's team has notable differences to his previous core series teams, including Pokémon that he's never used in any of his previous NPC appearances.

In Pokémon Stadium 2, Red uses vastly different sets of Pokémon than in any of his other appearances, only sharing a couple Pokémon with the teams he uses in the core series. Notably, this is the only game where he's not seen using his Pikachu.

In the Super Smash Bros. series

Red in Super Smash Bros. Brawl with his Pokémon.

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Red's hat appears as an alternate outfit worn by Pikachu from Super Smash Bros. Melee onward, possibly in specific reference to Pokémon Yellow Version (which, in turn, was inspired by the anime).

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Main article: Pokémon Trainer (Super Smash Bros.)

Red himself appears as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, named only as "Pokémon Trainer", with a team consisting of Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard. Rather than fighting himself, like the other human characters, Red sends his three Pokémon into battle, switching between them in order. He is voiced by Michele Knotz in the English version and 半場友恵 Tomoe Hanba in the Japanese version.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Though Red does not return as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U, his Charizard returns as an individual fighter. Instead, Red is featured as a trophy to represent Pokémon Trainers.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Red returns as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, alongside Squirtle, Ivysaur, and Charizard. He is once again referred to by the title of "Pokémon Trainer" and has his Pokémon battle instead of directly fighting. Additionally, Leaf is featured as part of his palette swaps, sharing the same title.

In other games

Red makes an appearance in both Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. While he does not appear in the games' Story Mode, he is playable in the Battle Mode when a FireRed or LeafGreen cartridge is used, with a male player character chosen. He can take on Mt. Battle's 100-battle challenge, as well as compete in Colosseum battles. Red also made a brief appearance in the debut trailer of Pokémon Battle Revolution, having a Double Battle against Leaf, using a Deoxys in its Attack Forme and a Wailord. Despite this, he didn't appear in the final cut of the game.

Counterparts

In the anime

In the main series

Main article: Ash Ketchum
Main article: Ash Ketchum (M20)
Ash Ketchum, Red's anime counterpart

Red's anime counterpart, introduced in the first episode, is the anime's main character, Ash Ketchum. Like Red, Ash is from Pallet Town, on a journey to become a Pokémon Master. Unlike Red, Ash's journey did not end with Kanto, and Ash has continued through every other region introduced in the core series games, as well as the Orange Archipelago south of Kanto, taking the place of the player characters of Generation II during Johto and Generation V during Unova, and being joined by the anime counterparts of May, Dawn, and Serena during the Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Kalos sagas. Instead of starting with one of the standard three Kanto starters, however, Ash began his journey with a Pikachu, inspiring Pokémon Yellow's creation, as well as causing some to consider Red and Ash to be exactly the same person, most especially due to Red owning one as well.

Red has another anime counterpart, an alternate Ash Ketchum, who appeared in I Choose You! and The Power of Us; these Sun & Moon movies are set in a timeline separate from the main series. This Ash shares the same basic characteristics as the main Ash.

In Pokémon Origins

Main article: Red (Origins)

Red also had a direct counterpart that appeared as the main character of the Pokémon Origins mini-series, which takes place in a separate continuity. This counterpart shared Red's name, in-game role, and design from FireRed and LeafGreen.

In Pokémon Generations

Another direct counterpart of Red appeared in Pokémon Generations. He first appeared in The Adventure, where he caught a Pikachu in Viridian Forest. He then went on to experience various other adventures with his Pikachu across other regions, during which he encountered various wild and Legendary Pokémon.

Red briefly reappeared at the end of The Challenger, having just defeated the Elite Four at Indigo Plateau, and preparing to challenge Blue for the title of the Champion.

Like the core series games, Red is not heard speaking during his appearances.

Pokémon

Bulbasaur
Red was shown to own a Bulbasaur. While in Viridian Forest, he sent it out to battle a wild Pikachu, which he successfully caught.

Main article: Red's Pikachu (game)

Pikachu is one of Red's Pokémon and has been used by him in many of his battles.

Red encountered Pikachu while in Viridian Forest. He sent out his Bulbasaur against it, but caught it in a Poké Ball without battling. After catching it, Red immediately let it out its Poké Ball and had it battle a Caterpie.

Pikachu continued to travel with its trainer throughout Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, and Kalos, battling against Pokémon such as Wooper, Vigoroth, Probopass, Regigigas, Volcarona, and Noivern.

Trivia

Red was once called "Satoshi" by Game Freak
Concept art of original series Ash's hat

<Player>: Hi!
Do you like POKéMON?

<Player>: Uh, no, I just asked you.

<Player>: Huh?
You’re strange!

COPYCAT: Hmm? Quit mimicking?
But, that’s my favorite hobby!

Similarly, after giving Copycat a Poké Doll and receiving TM31RGBY or having her teach Mimic to a compatible PokémonFRLG in return, another brief chatter ensues if the player talks to her again:

<Player>: Hi!
Thanks for earlier!

<Player>: Pardon?

<Player>: Is it that fun to mimic my
every move?

COPYCAT: You bet!
It’s a scream!

This implies that Red is speaking.
  • Hidden data in the Generation I games reveals placeholder names for Red and Blue:
    • The unused default name for Red in the English Generation I games is Ninten while Blue's is Sony. While it is impossible to view these names during regular gameplay, changing a few memory addresses in RAM can allow for these names to appear as shown here. This references the fact that in the years surrounding the releases of the Generation I games, Sony was Nintendo's main competition. Ninten is also the default name of the main protagonist of Mother, a game developed by Creatures, Inc..
    • In the Japanese Generation I games, the unused default names for Red and Blue differ between Pokémon Red and Green and Pokémon Blue and then between the latter and Pokémon Yellow[2]:
      • In Pokémon Red and Green, Red's unused default name is やまぐち Yamaguchi while Blue's is いしはら Ishihara. Yamaguchi refers to Wataru Yamaguchi, an art director that worked on the original games, while Ishihara refers to Tsunekazu Ishihara, the current president and CEO of The Pokémon Company and who was the games' producer at the time.
      • In Pokémon Blue, the unused default names for Red and Blue are, respectively, ゲーフリ Gēfuri, an abbreviation of Game Freak's name in Japanese (ゲームフリーク Gēmu Furīku), and クリチャ Kuricha, a reference to Creatures, Inc.
      • In Pokémon Yellow, Blue's unused default name remained unaltered while Red's was subtly altered by gaining an extra digit (ゲーフリ1).
  • Much like there is minimal information on his anime counterpart's father, Red's father is mentioned only briefly when examining an
