Pokemon Trainer Stories: Red's Story

by Noyeh Kaguya

Noyeh Kaguya
After his friend Blue, stopped playing with him, Red, being 10 years old, became interested in Pokemon. One day, Professor Oak calls both and gives them the choice of one of the three starter Pokemon. Moments later, the Professor gives them both a Pokedex, and gives them the mission to complete it with all all species of Pokemon, which had been Oak's dream from long ago.

While Red advances through the Kanto region, collecting Pokemon and defeating Gym Leaders to compete in the Pokemon League against the Elite Four, his rival Blue seems to be always one step ahead. The main conflict Red must face is Team Rocket, a group of criminals who want to steal Pokemon and related objects to cause trouble. Red later finds Giovanni, the leader of Team Rocket he'd face two times, is the last Gym Leader he must face before continuing his way. After being defeated once again, Giovanni decides to leave Team Rocket and the group apparently splits forever.

Red becomes the Champion of the Pokemon League after beating Blue, and nothing is heard about him until some time after.

Months later, Red's story continues through the Sevii Islands, where he aids Celio, a man attempting to make communications reach the Hoenn region, by recovering pieces of Ruby and Sapphire, needed for the machine Celio had been preparing to work. While he is there, he finds remaining Team Rocket grunts, who are presumably the ones who rejoin it into Neo Team Rocket.

After these events, not much is heard of Red, and by the time the Pokémon Trainer Ethan reaches the League, Red is no longer the champion, but one of the previous Elite Four, Lance. Red's mother can be found living in Pallet Town still, but about three years have passed since her son left home. In the final part of the game, however, Red can be found in Mt. Silver, training, incapable of human interaction.​
