|“||Yo! Finally got here, huh? I wasn't in the mood at Cinnabar, but now I'm ready to battle you. … You're telling me you conquered all the Gyms in Johto? Heh! Johto's Gyms must be pretty pathetic then. Hey, don't worry about it. I'll know if you are good or not by battling you right now. Ready, Johto boy?||„|

|“||Look, I'm a Trainer. So, if I see another strong Trainer, I'm gonna want to fight them. So how about a battle? Which one of us'll you choose?||„|
|~ Blue to Sun|
Blue was the rival in the first Generation of Pokémon. Characterized by his rude and crude personality, Blue embarked on his Pokémon Journey at the same time as his rival, Red and was always one step ahead of him, no matter where he went. Cocky, arrogant and even a little devious, Blue quickly found himself becoming the Pokémon Master of Kanto, only to be defeated by Red.
