I agree with Kenshin, Ash is clearly a counterpart for Red.

Not to mention that like stated in Kenshin's post there, Ash has the starter weak against Gary's just like what happens in the games.

They do have similar appearances as well however Ritchie (one of Ash's rivals) can also be considered a counterpart to Red and Ash due to having a similar design.
