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.
Ash and Ritchie are both loose counterparts of Red. They have similar character design and pokemon, but different personalities, adventure and the personalities of their pokemon also differ.

I believe the other 2 trainers in palete are in fact Blue and Red counterpart from the manga, who are closer to the game storyline.
