Green (Japanese: ブルー Blue) is the female player character in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, and also appears as a Pokémon Trainer in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!. Her male counterpart is Red. As the player character in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, she is known as Leaf (Japanese: リーフ Leaf).
In the games
As the protagonist
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.
As a non-playable character
Green makes an appearance in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!. She's first mentioned by Trace after the player has become Champion as a girl looking to catch a powerful Pokémon spotted in Cerulean Cave. After the player has caught Mewtwo in Cerulean Cave and exited the cave, Trace will appear again and mention how the girl looking for Mewtwo had entered the cave earlier. Green can then indeed be found inside Cerulean Cave, at the same spot where Mewtwo was earlier. When first interacted with, she will toss a Poké Ball at the player, having mistaken them for a Pokémon. Upon learning that the player managed to catch Mewtwo before her, she immediately challenges them to a battle. After being defeated, she will hand the player both of Mewtwo's Mega Stones: Mewtwonite X and Mewtwonite Y. She will then ask the player to become one of her Pokémon, along with Mewtwo, and throws several Poké Balls at them, attempting to catch them like a Pokémon. After failing in doing so, she runs away, asking the player to consider her offer.
Green can later be re-encountered in Cerulean City, where she will challenge the player to a rematch. After being defeated again, she once again tries to catch the player in a Poké Ball, but fails once again, and runs off once more, swearing to not give up on trying to get the player and Mewtwo for herself. This rematch can be repeated once per day.
The first battle against Green takes place in Cerulean Cave after the player has caught Mewtwo and met up with Trace outside the cave. Battles from the second battle onward take place in Cerulean City after Green has been defeated in Cerulean Cave. She uses the same set of Pokémon in both locations.
- Cerulean Cave
- "Oh, whoops! You're not a Pokémon! Sorry, it's so dark in here, I saw you and thought you were some kind of Pokémon."
- "Well, uh… Nice to meet you. I'm Green!"
- "So, hey, I'm just curious… Are you here because you're also looking for… y'know, something special?"
- "R-right! Mewtwo!"
- "…Drat. So you knew about it already, huh. … … … Whaaaaaaaaaat?! You've already caught it?!"
- "Hey, no fair! I was planning on catching it first!"
- "Come on! What's with that…?"
- "Wow, you're strong! Well, I guess that's that. Here, you can have these."
- "Oh, I know! Why don't you become one of my Pokémon, together with Mewtwo?"
- "Hee hee hee…"
- "Think about it, OK?"
- Cerulean City
- "Drat, I couldn't catch you this time either, huh…"
- "Well, never mind. Just show me how strong you've gotten!"
- "Come on! What's with that…?"
- "Wow, I think you're plenty strong already! So, what do you say? Don't you think it's time you become one of my Pokémon? Along with Mewtwo, of course!"
- "I'm not going to give up, you know!"

Cover of the Pocket Monsters Red, Green, and Blue guidebook
- An artwork of an unnamed female character drawn by Ken Sugimori was released in the games' official strategy guide. Sugimori had stated that he wanted to portray a trio of Trainers facing off against each other, hence designed the female character for the cover. The female character was later adapted for the Pokémon Craft DX magazine drawn by Emiko Yoshino, as well as the character Green in Pokémon Adventures. Sugimori also noted that he took the unnamed female character into consideration when he was designing the female protagonist of FireRed and LeafGreen.
- Leaf's hat somewhat resembles a Premier Ball.
- Leaf's FireRed and LeafGreen sprite shows her with blue eyes, although every other sprite and the official artwork shows her with brown eyes.
- The majority of her Japanese default names are shared with Dawn and Lyra. She also shares all of Kris's alternate Japanese names.
- Though she is neither playable nor an opponent in the handheld Generation IV games, Leaf made a brief cameo battling against Red in an early trailer for Pokémon Battle Revolution on the Wii.
- Leaf is the only non-rival female player character to have a counterpart who appeared in Pokémon Pocket Monsters.

Although she is referred to as "Leaf" in unused Trainer data in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen and hinted as such to be the default name by Sugimori on Twitter, she was not officially referred to by the name until the reveal of the Kotobukiya ARTFX J figurine featuring her as リーフ Leaf and later on by Bandai for the Pokémon Scale World collection. Because of this, 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!. 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 rīfugurīn.
