Blaine is a character appearing in Pokémon Adventures, who is the Gym Leader of Cinnabar Island in the Kanto region.
He is identical in appearance to his game counterpart. However, his left arm is horribly disfigured as a side-effect of his experimentation with the legendary Pokémon Mewtwo, which is later healed by Entei's flames.
Blaine has a kind personality, as shown when he shows sympathy towards the numerous townspeople that would have died if Team Rocket used the fused Legendary Trio, rather than his own life. Also, he is depicted to have a deep vendetta against Team Rocket, due to their cruel experimentation upon Pokémon.
Red, Green & Blue arc
When Red arrives at Cinnabar Island, Blaine is under attack from several Team Rocket grunts. The Team Rocket Grunts prepare to finish Red off, but Blaine intervenes, appearing before them. Blaine takes Red onto his Rapidash in order to effect their escape. However, they are encountered with the legendary Moltres, who blocks their path. Blaine realizes that they will not be able to fight back, and gives Red an Amber to take back to his lab. He attempts to hold off Moltres with Red's Gyarados until Red completes the restoration process, but finds himself hopelessly outmatched. Blaine expresses regret that he was unable to find the Pokémon which he vowed to destroy, as Red swoops in on Aerodactyl. He jumps onto Aerodactyl's back, as they successfully force Team Rocket into retreat by defeating Moltres. Blaine emerges injured from the onslaught, stating that he has another task to accomplish.
Later, Blaine meets up with Red at Cerulean Cave, where they confront Mewtwo. He rescues Red, explaining how he created Mewtwo by splicing his DNA. As Mewtwo conjures up a psychic tornado with Psywave, Blaine resolves to defeat Mewtwo alone. Blaine punches down upon Mewtwo with his Rapidash, dispersing the tornado and defeating it. As Red runs over to him, Blaine gifts him with a Master Ball. Blaine reveals that Red was the very reason that he quit Team Rocket, and that the monster all along was him. However, Mewtwo emerges heavily injured wielding his ultimate attack, a spoon. Blaine tells Red that the only outcome is to kill Mewtwo, as he charges at it with his Pokémon. However, Mewtwo reforms back into a tornado, as Red's Pokémon begin to get blown away. Blaine again tells Red to stop, as he charges at Mewtwo on Aerodactyl. As Mewtwo and Red near each other, Pika leaps over Red's shoulder, capturing Mewtwo with the Master Ball hidden inside its mouth, much to Blaine's surprise.
Two years after the events of the first chapter, Blaine has worked fervently to try and reverse the connection with Mewtwo, as it would limit their capabilities once apart. When Yellow faces off against Super Nerd William, whose goal was to kidnap Pika for Agatha, she finds herself falling for his tactics. After Yellow is knocked unconscious by a Bonemerang to the chest, Blaine comes to her aid, protecting her from falling. After William is electrocuted by Yellow's tactic, Blaine uses his Growlithe's keen sense of smell to deduce that Red was at Mt. Moon when he went missing. However, before he can further analyze William's clothing, Agatha's Gastly levitates the Super Nerd in order to silence him. Blaine uses his Growlithe's Fire Blast to subdue Gastly, as Yellow saves a Caterpie from getting killed by the attack. He and the other gym leaders introduce themselves to Yellow, commending his selflessness.
Blane deduces that the perpetrator subdued William to prevent him from talking, as the gym leaders prepare their next course of action. However, Gastly emerges from within William's body, enveloping Blaine and the others in fog. However, Blue intervenes, and reveals to Blaine and Yellow that he has fought one of the Elite Four. Blaine and the others are surprised when Blue mentions that Agatha was most likely behind this attack, as he leaves on his Charizard. Later, Blaine returns to Cinnabar Island, and practices under the guise of an elderly man with Mewtwo. He battles against a Junior Trainer, in order to hone his connection skills with Mewtwo. Blaine tells Yellow to follow him into his laboratory, revealing that he is in fact the Gym Leader. Soon after, Blaine receives a message from Brock explaining that an ice figure of Red is at Mt. Moon. Blaine reveals that he has discerned the location to the Elite Four's headquarters. Blaine and Yellow then go their separate ways, proceeding to venture towards the main base, Cerise Island.
Upon arrival at the island, Blaine meets up with Blue, as they proceed through the cavern. Several Pokémon shadows approach them, and Blaine believes it to be an ambush from the Elite Four. However, the Team Rocket executives appear, repealing his statement. Blaine and the others sense the movements of Yellow, Green and Bill. As they all regroup together, Sabrina uses her Spoons of Destiny to pair each Pokédex Holder with one of the Rocket Executives. As such, Blaine is paired with Yellow, whereupon they each resolve to bring down the Elite Four. Blaine and Yellow proceed to come across Lt. Surge and Bill's battle, but are unable to intervene due to the barrier set up by Bruno. Lance appears behind them, as the two prepare to battle him. Blaine unleashes his Mewtwo to counter Aerodactyl's Hyper Beam, surprising Lance. As Blaine instructs Mewtwo to continue its attacks, he wonders how long his body will be able to cope with the pressure. However, it is this connection that results in both Blaine and Mewtwo's defeat, as it returns to its Poké Ball, preventing Blaine from suffering any more damage.
Blaine was invited by the Pokémon League to take part in a Gym Leaders' Tournament. He was chosen to battle Clair. Blaine took his seat and watched Brock battle Jasmine. As the other Gym Leaders were fighting, Blaine left and snuck into a room, keeping a distance from Silver, who wanted to find Entei. Blaine showed Entei joined him and sent it out, wishing that it would purify a virus out of his body with Entei's "Flames of Life". Entei burned Blaine to purify him. Blaine felt his ties were severed and discarded the bandages. He bid farewell to his "brother" (who left Cinnabar Island) and welcomed Entei as his new partner. Before facing Pryce, Erika was saddened that Blaine couldn't be the team captain, as he wasn't even present during the meeting with Kanto Gym Leaders.
Due to Team Rocket having infiltrated into the Indigo Plateau, Blaine battled the grunts. He and the Gym Leaders went into the train, which locked them all in and rode away. Despite the fighting, Clair took a moment to attack Blaine, who had involvement in her cousin's disappearance. Blaine accepted her challenge, so they moved into the other room. Clair had her Dragonair use Thunder Wave on Blaine, demanding to tell what happened to Lance, her cousin. While her Dragonair used Outrage, Blaine reflected the attack; a Pokémon appeared behind him and burned Clair and Dragonair. Before leaving, Blaine told Clair Lance was a strong person and was out there. Surge had his new Pokémon use electricity to pull the cart back to the stadium. Blaine and Misty were interested and surprised that Lt. Surge obtained Raikou. The two noted Raikou must've sensed something in Lt. Surge to have joined him. Lt. Surge wanted to leave, but Blaine and Misty persuaded him to join in the fight. Lt. Surge joined them and the trio went to stop the Masked Man, with the Legendary Beasts supporting them.
The Masked Man was surprised, since the three Pokémon should've been locked in the Burned Tower. Regardless, his Ho-Oh and Lugia attacked the trio, blowing them away. Despite this, the Gym Leaders gave a Charcoal, a Magnet and a Mystic Water to Entei, Raikou and Suicune, whose attacks were powered up against the Masked Man's Ho-Oh and Lugia. The Masked Man jumped and attacked Misty, who tried to hold off the Masked Man, while Suicune summoned a crystal wall to stop the villain. As Lt. Surge prepared to unmask the dead villain, the upper portion of the Masked Man's body springed to life and escaped despite Blaine's Pokémon firing a hole in his stomach and the lower part of the body being cleaved by the wall. Misty went to fight back, but was also trapped by the crystal wall; Suicune was weakened by Masked Man's Gastly's Curse and could not lower the wall. Lt. Surge and Blaine were powerless to save Misty, but Eusine arrived and used the invisible bell to rescue Misty. Falkner took off the garb from the legs, making him, Blaine and the others in shock that the legs were made of ice. Since the three Gym Leaders were too injured to pursue the Masked Man, Blaine let Entei go with Crystal.
In the end, Blaine returned to his Gym, where he was challenged by other trainers, who wanted to obtain his badge to enter the Pokémon League.
FireRed & LeafGreen arc
Mewtwo spoke with Red, stating after the link between it and Blaine was severed, Mewtwo gained the ability to talk telepathically, but only with certain people.
Blaine was visited by Evan and Miles, whom he would've picked up. The boys stated he didn't had to go through all the trouble. Blaine admitted he was looking through certain pictures, hearing the boys would come and visit him. However, he sensed a pain in his arm, sensing Mewtwo is disturbed and feeling Mew is returning to Kanto, too.
X & Y arc
Blaine came to the Pokémon Village to look after Mewtwo. One day, he left a bit, unaware that Mewtwo would become berserk.
He returned to the village and seeing Team Flare, he Mega Evolved Mewtwo, who started attacking the enemies. He met up with Blue and X, swearing he would assist them in defeating Team Flare, who, like Blaine once did, used science for their ill purposes. However, Lysandre's Zygarde unleashed Land's Wrath, which attacked everyone, injuring them. Seeing Mewtwo still floating, Zygarde attacked it, too, causing it and Blaine pain. Before Zygarde went to make another attack, Mewtwo switched its Mega Stone and Blaine Mega Evolved it into a different form. Blaine noted he and Mewtwo were unique, as the latter had two different Mega Evolved forms. Per Emma's order, Zygarde unleashed another attack, injuring Mewtwo and Blaine further. X's Marisso carried Blaine and Blue to a safe distance. Blaine had enough strength to watch as X fought Lysandre with five Mega Evolved Pokémon. He commented that with so many Mega Pokémon, X was only driven to defeat Zygarde. Seeing Zygarde was dissolving into green cells, Blaine thought Zygarde didn't need those green cells anymore, as it was splitting itself.
After the battle was over, Blaine and Blue reported to Professor Sycamore. They told about Zygarde, which became a green blob that fled away. Sycamore decided to make an investigation, which made Blaine think he was going to the Pokémon Village. Instead, Sycamore had his assistants, Sina and Dexio, go to Alola, as the green blob was reported to be there.
