Leaf (Japanese: リーフ Leaf) is the female player character in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen. Her male counterpart is Red.

In the core series

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

Leaf's adventure begins after Professor Oak calls her to his lab and gives her a choice of Pokémon. Blue challenges Leaf to a Pokémon battle as soon as they get their Pokémon. Later, Professor Oak calls the two back, gives each of them a Pokédex, and sends them on a journey to fulfill their dream of capturing every kind of Pokémon.

Leaf travels all over Kanto, filling in the Pokédex and defeating the Gym Leaders. Her rival Blue constantly stays one step ahead, and shows up quite a few times to impede her progress. When Leaf eventually reaches the Elite Four, she finds that Blue has beaten her to a milestone yet again and has become the Indigo League Champion. Leaf defeats Blue in the final battle, and becomes the Champion herself. Her adventure continues even after that, with Leaf discovering new places, such as the Sevii Islands.

Leaf's main conflict in the games, aside from Blue, is Team Rocket, an infamous group of Pokémon thieves. Leaf clashes with Team Rocket many times in her quest. She defeats a group of grunts at Mt. Moon who are attempting to steal rare Pokémon Fossils, and defeats another group ahead at a bridge in Cerulean City. Leaf protects the Pokémon Tower and Mr. Fuji in Lavender Town and destroys their hold on the Game Corner. After she foils their plot to take over Silph Co., Leaf encounters Giovanni, the leader of Team Rocket, as the final Gym Leader in Viridian City. Upon defeating him, Leaf stops the group's world domination plots once and for all, though a few remaining grunts, many who appeared and were defeated by Leaf on Five Island in Generation III, would band together in Johto to try to revive the group.

Main Story Chapter 23 - Hearts Connected by Fashion
  • Leaf's Idea
"I'm counting on you, Eevee!"
"You're every bit as strong as I've heard, Elesa! I'm looking forward to the real match!"
"It's fine, it's fine! Battles are the most fun when you just battle when you want without getting caught up in stuff like that."
"Plus...we're both still hiding an ace up our sleeve, aren't we?"
"Misty! Oh, and <player>, too! What're you doing here?"
"Oh, I get it! You came for a battle with me, too, huh?"
"By the way, Valerie, about you wanting to become a Pokémon..."
"Were you serious?"
"I love that!"
"And I actually know a way... A way to become a Pokémon."
"Yeah. I'm sure it's exactly the kind of thing you're looking for, Valerie."
"Yes, if you follow what I say. All right..."
"<Player>! Have a battle with Valerie right now!"
Isn't this a bit sudden?: "C'mon! It's to help Valerie."
Is that the way to become a Pokémon?: "Yeah! I think so."
"Valerie, this will be your first battle on Pasio, right? That should do the trick!"
"Don't worry about it!"
"C'mon. It's time to battle with all your might!"
  • The Stage Awaits
"That was the feeling of...being a Pokémon."
"It was the feeling of your hearts becoming one. That's the answer."
"Of course! I can't have anyone trying to actually turn into a Pokémon like Bill did."
"Though I guess that'd be interesting in its own way."
"I should get going, too. My teammates are probably waiting for me."
"Don't go losing now, OK? I'm looking forward to a battle with you, too!"
"See you around!"
Pokémon Center
"I recently learned about a Pokémon that lives in the Galar region!"
"It's called Kubfu. Do you guys know about it?"
"Apparently it's super dedicated to training and nothing else."
"Doesn't that kinda sound like you guys? Omigosh! If either one of you partnered up with it, you'd make a perfect pair!"
"I bet if you and Kubfu were partners, Red, you two would go off and train for days, huh?"
"You both look like you're itching to train again."
"Well then, what are we waiting for?!"
"Great! Then let's battle!"
"We gotta keep training, too, so we don't lose to that Kubfu when the time comes!"

Names

Leaf is used as the official name for this character in Pokémon Masters and on merchandise such as Kotobukiya's ARTFX J figurine[3][4] and the Bandai's Pokémon Scale World collection.[5] She is also referred to as "Leaf" in unused Trainer data and as one of her optional names in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen and was hinted as such to be the default name by Sugimori on Twitter.[6]

Until the reveal of her official name, she was also known in the fandom as "Green" (ブルー Blue in Japanese) to match her Pokémon Adventures counterpart. This name would later be used officially in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! for Green, although it has not been confirmed whether Leaf and Green are different versions of the same character. She is also sometimes referred to as フグリ Fuguri in the Japanese fandom. The name is derived from the katakana rendering of "LeafGreen", リーフグリーン fugurīn.
