It wasn't really a tough decision. The thing is, my dad gave me the name Red, hoping that when I grew up, it would help me have the passion and energy of a red hot fire.
~ Red upon picking Charmander as his starter Pokémon

Red is a trainer from the Pokémon series. He appeared in the Death Battle Season 2 finale, Pokémon VS Digimon along with his Charizard against Digimon Tamer Tai and his Agumon. He was voiced by Nathan Sharp.


Red is the protagonist from the first Pokémon game, Red and Blue. He was originally a young trainer from Pallet Town who would go on to try and catch all 150 available Pokémon. In Origins, Red chose Charmander as his starter Pokémon and bonded with it over the course of his adventure, where he beat all 8 Kanto Gym Leaders, the evil organization Team Rocket, and his Rival Blue before taking on the legendary Mewtwo. After catching all 150 available Pokémon, Red and his Charizard resided on the top of Mount Silver, waiting for future trainers worthy of a challenge.
