The other two "Trainers" were created as a reason to force Ash to have Pikachu instead of a normal Starter. Red and Blue don't exist in the Anime as independent characters as both are Ash and Gary. Gary is Blue as Gary is Professor Oak's Grandson.
Bulbapedia only posts direct info from the anime, games, and manga.
Ash's Japanese name is Satoshi as homage to Satoshi Tajiri, creator of Pokemon who based the main character of his game on himself from his childhood.
Manga wise, Red's official "first" Pokemon was Poliwhirl which coincidentally is Satoshi's favorite Pokemon.
