Still as silent as ever, eh?
~ Blue when talking to Red


Red is the enigmatic and silent protagonist of Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow and its remakes Pokémon Fire Red/Leaf Green, as well as the hidden final boss of Pokémon Gold/Silver/Crystal and its remakes Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver.

Due to Red infamously being a silent protagonist, much of his character seems a mystery. He appears to be a heroic person, risking his life to fight the likes of Team Rocket and saving a girl from a Hypno during the post game of Pokémon Fire Red/Leaf Green, as well as a very dedicated and determined person, braving through the hardships of his journey in order to become of the most famous and strongest Pokémon Trainers in the world.
