Red? I friggin' love Red!

Username: Heretostay123
Favourite pokemon: Snorlax
Favourite type: Fire
Reason for joining: Ever since I played HeartGold/SoulSilver and FireRed and Leafgreen, I idolized Red. I knew a little bit about him from reading the manga with him in it, and he was just like... "BLAH!" *throws up with awesomness*


Which pokemon from Red's team is your favourite and why?: Snorlax, for one reason it's my favorite Pokemon. For another, Snorlax is a friggin' boss. He's my rock in a majority of my teams.

What would you do if Red was real?: I would idolize him, and be like a teenage girl to 1 Direction.

Welcome to the club, guys! :'D I'm adding you to the list in a sec. :3

I agree with everyone, Red's so awesome and his pokemon are boss.

Gotta go for a few hours, if someone wants to join I'll add them when I'm back.

Interesting theory, I've heard it before. But, here's how I explain it:
Why doesn't Red talk?
None of the main protagonists do! Why? Probably because you're playing as the main character and making them talk would kinda ruin it. The only time a main character said something was in the Crystal version when Copycat copied your character. (At least that's what I remember from what I've played) I don't know about B/W & B2/W2.
Is Red a ghost?
I think not. A ghost can't beat you and become a champion. At least that's what I think, I dunno if it's possible in the Pokemon Universe unless you're contolled by a Ghastly or something.

And the guy said something about Red having no father. Almost none of the main characters do, except in the R/S/E series. Again, I'm not sure about B/W & B2/W2.

Looking at Red's mysterious characteristics in all of the Pokemon media, the most believable for me would be the ghost theory(I'm not saying that just because I'm a ghost-type lover). The event of having the dead come back from the grave to test the knowledge and skills of the present generation has been a common element in many stories in both ancient, and modern texts. So looking at it from this perspective we can claim that Red is probably an ancestor of the protagonist, after all no one ever mentions a guy named Red, the supposedly "greatest Pokemon Trainer of all". I find it odd that Red can just hide out in caves and whatnot beating up your Pokemon without anyone else hearing about him. That doesn't make much sense because someone with his kind of strength especially at his age, would shoved into the limelight before you can say "go Pikachu!"

I haven't played Black and White so any information that is contained within those games about Red is unknown to me.

So there's my two cents .

That was interesting, but I think that he's just on Mt.Silver, because he trains his pokémon there. I haven't finished the manga, but that's what I think at this moment.

I was playing Pokémon HG yesterday, and someone did mention Red! I was at a PokéCenter, and the NPC was talking about how a young boy called Red defeated Team Rocket a few years ago.

Adding you to the list.

I'm very glad you liked it, and that it brought back memories. Any suggestions of which version (like a gameplay video, or me vs. someone) I should make a video on?

Yeah, I'll visit all the PokéCenters and I'll take a screenshot when I find it. :p

I love watching videos of people battling other people because it's a whole different game when two people are battling. That would be great to see! But how would you record something like that?

I record it with Hypercam 3, when I was little there weren't any gameboys in Bulgaria, so I only had the movies. I'm using an emulator.

That's interesting. I mean how would you record fights with other people? That seems pretty hard I never knew how to do it.

On a Red-related note, do you think he will appear in X and Y as some sort of bonus trainer or something? Like he did in White and Black?

I wouldn't mind if he did, although I did not play B/W 2, I heard he was there. I'm guessing that if he does show up, he'll have Megalutions and be like the FINAL BOSS of pokemon.

That's true. However I don't know how I feel about megalutions....they sound very unfair past the point of legendary status. I guess we'll see because I have no idea what they will be like.

But I think that having Red be the final Boss kind of thing would be great.

Originally Charizard belongs to Blue (according to manga) but that is not my reason, the reason is I am a Charizard fanatic and he is my Favorite Pokemon of all time.And Pikachu, Because (just my opinion) he is the most loyal Pokemon of Red, as he and Yellow venture to find and rescue red after he went missing.

What would you do if Red was real?
First I want to go on adventure with him and then I want to fight him head on, because it is one of my dream to battle him.

I'll sign you up in a sec.

Actually, he's called Green (Blue is the girl, who stole the Squirtle from Prof. Oak's lab). But, due to a mistranslation (or something), he's known as Blue in the USA. I read the manga daily. Pokémon Red & Green were the original games, but they made Pokémon Blue which was released in the USA instead of the original Green version.
To me, the most loyal of Red's pokémon has to be Poliwrath. He was his first pokémon (However, I believe that it was never revealed how he got it), and he saved his life from drowning more than once. And every time he saved him from drowning, he evolved! Their friendship is amazing. :p

I see Megalutions as PokéRoids. :D

I seriously loved the manga, and found it interesting how they threw in their own twists on the original storyline of the games, and I just wish the anime would've followed a character more in style of Red in the manga rather than Ash, and I have a feeling I'm not alone ;) I didn't read much past Yellow arc though, because I knew Red would only make minor appearances from there on, and well, I'd grown to love him as a character, and had a hard time getting into the new ones. Really hoping the new anime will make Red in style of how he was in the manga, but considering how short the special is probably gonna be, I don't know how much it matters :p Just as long as he isn't another Ash ;D

To me, the most loyal of Red's pokémon has to be Poliwrath. He was his first pokémon (However, I believe that it was never revealed how he got it), and he saved his life from drowning more than once. And every time he saved him from drowning, he evolved! Their friendship is amazing. :p
I'm pretty sure he was renamed to Blue in the official translations because, as you mentioned, the international releases were Red and Blue, rather than Red and Green, and one of the name choices you could pick from with the rival was the colour of the opposite game, so I'm guessing it was to make it less confusing for Americans and such? Either way, it's just made everything more confusing, since a lot of people read the online scanlations anyways haha :p

I actually feel really bad for Poliwrath, since he was the first Pokemon Red ever caught, he saved Red's life twice, and in the end Pikachu kinda ends up representing his team :( Been a while since I read it, but I kinda feel like Poliwrath just didn't get enough screen time :p

Oh, also, reason I'm not signing up is because I'm not really a "fan" of Red, but find him to be an interesting character all around, and I would love to talk about him :p If you want me to sign up to discuss in the club though, just say so :)
