Red from Generation III

Red (French: Red, German: Rot, Italian: Rosso, Spanish: Rojo) 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.

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, stopped playing with him and became a bully. By the end of the game, Red becomes the Pokémon Champion after defeating the Elite Four and his rival, Blue.

Red's main conflict in the game, aside from Blue, is Team Rocket, an infamous group of Pokémon thieves. Red clashes with Team Rocket on many occasions throughout his quest, and eventually causes them to disband after defeating their leader, Giovanni, in the Viridian City Gym.
