Does Red exist in the anime?

Prof. Oak confirmed before the Indigo League that the other two Pallet Town trainers had given up trainering Pokemon because they couldn't handle themselves in battle the way Ash and Gary could. Who they were no longer matters.
Gary is obviously Blue. Gary has always shared Blue's design, even when the designs changed from Gen 3 and 4, which proves the characters are counterparts.
Blue (Games: Gen 3)
Blue (Pokemon Adventures manga)
Ash and Gary just take the place of Red and Blue in the anime. And with Ash being more of his own character than just a Red clone, he can have his own personality and be different from his other counterparts. It's a better way to handle a lead character for a show that has been on television for 15 years and still going.
We won't be seeing Red as a stand-alone character in the anime.
