    The reason Red wasn't put in the anime, I believe, is because they thought kids would relate to Ash far better than Red's character. Ash was created to make money, essentially. And then the Pokémon Adventures manga was created as a sort of "nod" to how they wanted the anime to be. I can't remember where I read this, but I know I have somewhere!

    Unless they make a whole separate Pokémon anime series (which I highly doubt would ever happen), then Red won't get a look in even though, imo, it would be way more awesome than the current anime if he were in it. Or if the anime was more like the Pokémon Adventures manga in general.
    Still young but no longer impressionable.
