Biography

History

PM series

Kanto

Red is a young Trainer from Pallet Town who is on his way to see Template:OBP in order for him to begin his Pokémon Journey. He bumped into someone who he immediately recognized as Template:OBP and Green immediately recognized him as well. It turned out that both of them are Trainers who are about to begin their journey. They end up becoming rivals and race to Professor Oak's lab. On his way to the lab, Red encountered a giant Template:P who warned him to watch out for them as they are monsters. The male Nidoran breathes fire on Red when Red laughed at the advice. Red then encountered a violent male Template:P and together, they defeat the giant Nidoran♂ by accident. Red headed to the lab with Clefairy following him only to find out that Green got there first. After Green chose his Pokémon, Red noticed that Clefairy followed him to the laboratory. He chose to travel with the Clefairy because he finds his antics amusing. Red is then given a Pokédex from Professor Oak and is sent on a quest to find out more about Pokémon.

Later, he went with Clefairy to Viridian Forest in order to accomplish his goal. Both of them get hungry in the middle and Red ran off to get him and Clefairy some coconuts. Red and Clefairy finish their coconuts and continue their journey. Red encountered a Template:P along with various wild Pokémon there in different appearances, such as the three-eyed Template:P, who end up laughing at the young Trainer. Red battled Mewtwo using Clefairy but Clefairy attacked an unknown Bug instead of Mewtwo. As the creature was weakened, Red threw a Poké Ball at it and caught it. With the creature caught, Red targetted Mewtwo as his next capture and was determined to capture it. Due to his inexperience with catching Pokémon, Red just throws a bunch of Poké Balls which all bounce off of Mewtwo. Red then used Clefairy to battle it but it was easily able to defeat Clefairy by kicking him off a cliff. Red went off to the Pokémon Center, promising revenge with the forest Pokémon. Red met up with Green briefly while Clefairy was put inside a healing tank. Both Trainers compare their amount of captures to each other with Green being the victor. During Clefairy's operation, Red's Poké Ball containing the unknown Bug-type drops as the treatment got disrupted earlier. The unknown Bug-type gets released with Red chasing after it.

Red arrived in Pewter City and did some sightseeing. He stopped by an ice cream shop to tell Clefairy about a way to get stronger. Clefairy got excited about this and followed Red to the Pewter Gym. Outside the Gym, Red noticed that Green was easily beaten. Red and Clefairy meet Brock who tells them that they'll be an easy challenge and heads inside the Gym. Red goes inside and tours around Brock's collection. During the Gym Battle, Red used Clefairy against Brock's Onix when Clefairy noticed his cousin trapped. Red won when Clefairy drew a picture of himself on Onix's tail and then smashes a falling pillar on it. Red is rewarded the Template:Badge and the Template:TP from Brock's collection which was Clefairy's cousin that was trapped. Pikachu was willing to join Red on his adventures and zapped him, which did not make Red happy.

After the Gym battle, Red camped out and learned of a Moon Stone from Clefairy in order to properly evolve him. He went to Cerulean City to get the Moon Stone that Misty had. However, in order to do that, he had to battle her. He did so using his Clefairy and managed to defeat her Template:P. With the battle won, Misty rewarded him the Moon Stone but a Template:P flew off with it. Red chased after it and Green joined him since he wanted to find Mew himself. Red and Green arrive at an abandoned water mill. Inside, Red and the others notice a secret room that Pikachu found hidden under the floorboards which contained a hidden laboratory. A man in the form of a leopard named Bill appears and introduces himself to Red and the gang. Bill's wife, who was the Mew and the one responsible for taking the Moon Stone explains to them about how one of the experiments caused them to be that way forever. Red and the group watch Bill and his wife change back into humans thanks to the Moon Stone and one of the machines. However, Bill's human appearance was too hideous for Red and Green so they ran away from him and the lab.

In Great Success in the Mountains or the Seas!?, Red got into a fight with Clefairy over a rice ball which landed in Diglett's Cave. The trio went inside the cave and get trapped by a Template:P's Poké Dollar. Luckily for Red, his Pikachu was able to use his electrical powers to light up itself and the trio made their way out of the cave. They went to the Vermilion City Pokémon Center. Red noticed Green by a computer, getting his Pokédex evaluated by Professor Oak. In contrast to Red catching only three Pokémon, Green caught 50. As a result, Red gets punched by a boxing glove coming from the computer for punishment of his lack of progress. He left the Pokémon Center and went to a fishing spot. He bought an Old Rod for 350 yen. While fishing, the group hear a voice from the S.S. Anne and some people nearby tell him that his name is Lt. Surge. Red went onboard the ship, thinking how he could use the 500 Pokémon Lt. Surge caught to complete the Pokédex. Instead, Lt. Surge wanted to take Red's Pokémon to add to the collection. As a result, both of the battle. Unfortunately, Clefairy accidentally whacked Lt. Surge's Template:P in the ship's cannons, causing the ship to explode.

In Get Rid Of The Ghost Pokémon!!, Red ran to a mansion to get shelter from the rain. Red got scared by the eerie atmosphere in the mansion. A Template:P appeared and Red battled it with Clefairy. Red warned Clefairy about Gastly's Poké Dollar. Clefairy's attacks had little to no effect on Gastly, as it caused damage to himself. Seeing that his strategy wasn't working, Clefairy ran off and got a giant Buddha statue, which scared off Gastly. Two people, who are the parents of a Template:PPM living in the mansion, come in and tell Red and his Pokémon about their son, Blue. They want Red to get rid of the Ghost residing in the mansion so Blue can become happy again. Red became annoyed at the offer when Blue's parents told them about going back outside in the rain and thunder if they refused the offer. The group were about to leave until Blue's father pleaded with them to come back. The group decide to help and go upstairs where they went to Blue's room. Blue in his cold and dark look told Red that he used Ghost Pokémon. When Red told him that he came to get rid of them, they had a battle. Like before, Red warned Clefairy about Template:P using hypnotism. Despite Haunter successfully hypnotizing Clefairy, Haunter accidentally slammed itself against a wall. Even though Red had the upper hand, Haunter's evolution into Template:P, caused Clefairy problems. Using the Silph Scope that Clefairy stole from Blue, Red was able to defeat him. Despite getting rid of the Ghost Pokémon, the impact of the battle caused Blue's item collection to get destroyed, much to Blue's ire.

From this point forward, he continued his travels with his Pokémon encountering Gym Leaders.

After competing in the Pokémon League, Red returned home to Pallet Town.

A Template:P goes up to them and tells them that they are in Unova. Patrat advises the trio to go to Professor Juniper's lab and run off when Clefairy gave it a tiny berry despite hoarding a pile of bigger berries. Inside the lab, Professor Juniper congratulated Red for being the thirtieth person to come to her lab for being a Trainer. As Professor Juniper brought out a box containing Template:P, Template:P, and Template:P, Red wondered which one he wanted but did not get a chance to choose as those three were already reserved Template:Ga three Trainers. Professor Juniper tells him that he already has an adorable Pikachu. However, Red and Clefairy attempt to get Professor Juniper to change her mind but Professor Juniper saw what they were doing and did not work. Red and his Pokémon leave the lab after Clefairy gets beaten up easily by the Unova starters. In the forest, the trio became disappointed about Professor Juniper not giving them a Pokémon but Red stated that he'll have to find some new ones himself. Red goes to a restaurant in Striaton City as Clefairy suggested to him to go there. He meets the three waiters, Cilan, Chili, and Cress who were also the Gym Leaders of the Striaton Gym. As Clefairy failed to get the brothers to fight each other, they challenged Red to a Gym Battle where Cilan went first by using Template:TP, followed by Cress and Chili with Template:P and Template:TP respectively. As the three use their attacks, Clefairy made some tea using their attacks.

Red battles a Template:P using Pikachu and as Red had trouble knowing what he said, the battle could not be finished since Darmanitan's Trainer had to go watch Team Plasma give out a speech. As Red still had trouble knowing what Pikachu told him, N comes by and told him what Pikachu was actually saying. Red then tried proving himself that he could understand Pokémon language similar to N by having Pikachu speak slower but that did not work. Red uses Clefairy's tape that he recorded of N talking to a Purrloin and Red was able to understand what Pikachu was saying. As Clefairy sold copies of his CD containing N's speech, Red and Pikachu became shocked about that. However, it did not work out when Clefairy woke up from his dream.
