1) Red- The most AWESOME trainer of ALL TIME!!! If Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee, and Superman had a kid, Red would destroy that kid in a Pokemon Battle.
2) Leaf (or Blue from the Manga)- This girl is pretty much my ideal woman; smart, beautiful, independent, innovative, the whole package.
3) Gold- His quirks can be annoying at times but he's still one of the most likeable protagonists.
4) Sapphire (from the Manga)- Whilst I found Ruby to be a vein primadonna, Sapphire was fricken awesome. Honestly, the only reason I kept reading the Hoenn Chapters.
5) Nate- He looks a little bit like Tai, my favorite character from Digimon.
