Pokémon Red (ポケットモンスター 赤 Pocket Monsters Red) and Pokémon Green (ポケットモンスター 緑 Pocket Monsters Green) were the very first Pokémon games to be released. Green was released only in Japan along with Red, and later when the games were translated for worldwide release, Green was replaced with Pokémon Blue.


You are about to enter the world of Kanto where there are 151 Pokémon waiting for you. Your hometown is in Pallet Town. When you arrive at Professor Oak's Lab, there are 3 Starter Pokémon you can choose from. They are Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle. The player is only allowed to choose one of them in these games, and your rival always picks the Pokémon that is your weakness. In Kanto, you must defeat the following Gym Leaders in order to advance in the game:

Once you defeat all of the Gym Leaders, you may proceed through Victory Road, then to the Pokémon League.

While in the Pokémon League, you will have to face the strongest trainers in the game, The Elite Four. They are as follows:

Once you defeated all of them, you will challenge your rival, who is the Champion.

After you beat your rival, you become the champion, but you still can battle the Elite Four as many times as you wish.

Your last objective now is to complete the Pokédex.

Once the player has completed the Pokédex, the player is granted a Diploma if they talk to the employee that works for Game Freak in Celadon Mansion.

  • At one point of development, there were ideas of inserting the female protagonist. However, the idea was scrapped, but was introduced in FireRed and LeafGreen Versions.
  • The design of the female protagonist of Pokémon Red Green and Blue is identical to the Pokémon Adventures manga, as it was the basis for the creation of the character. Because just wearing clothes Green Leaf, that girl may be her with her first design.
