I agree with Xander all the way.

He is the original main character, and became the Kanto Champion which explains his appearance in B2/W2's World Tournament and his "bonus boss" status in G/S/C/HG/SS.

Red is the most iconic Trainer in the entire series, cos he was also the inspiration for Ash in the anime. Not to mention that like Ash, Red's signature Pokemon is also a Pikachu.

Red is currently the only character to appear in all generations so far, albeit not in every game.

In a way, Red... isn't actually in many games? He was in RBY and FRLG, sure, but that doesn't count for much since he was the protagonist. He appeared in GSC, and thus appeared in HGSS, which doesn't exactly count as an entirely separate game. And, since he was in GSCHGSS as an NPC trainer of high esteem, naturally he's in BW2's Pokemon World Tournament, along with all the other big name NPC trainers you've battled. All (two of) his appearances after GSC can be attributed solely to him being in GSC to begin with. If they hadn't decided to put him at the top of Mt. Silver way back then, I doubt he'd have ever shown up again.

Red is in B2W2 because he's the only playable character to appear as an NPC in the games, so he's the only one to have an AI team. You could include Gold, Brendan and Lucas (as well as their female counterparts), but which team would you give them? Red is an NPC as well as the playable character, so building a team for him that characterizes him is much easier.

Actually, that's Pokemon Specials Red, as much as love the guy, he isn't 100% identical with Game!Red. And Poliwrath was Red's first Pokemon in the Special manga,, just like Blue's was Scyther, and in the games his first was either Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirdle. And Red appears so much as he was the first main character in series, and many character’s especially from Kanto, are also quite recurring.

Well the Kanto region has appeared multiple times too along with it's gym leaders so it's kind of a given even without counting B2W2.
Red and Green (boy) have appeared in 12 games (13 games in Japan).
Lance in 12/13 as well
Steven has 7 games
Cynthia has 9 games having appeared in all of gen IV and so far in all of the gen V games (honestly Gf seems to like Cythia more than Red Imo).
Alder has four. And those are only the champs

I don't see the big deal tbh, although I would like to see Ethan/Gold in some more games, since he was my favourite protag from all of the games.
Still young but no longer impressionable.
