SERIES: Pokémon
CHRONOLOGY: Sun/Moon – post-game
HOUSING: Roommates – requesting De Chima


Red is, first and foremost, a man of very few words. In canon, his dialogue consists only of combinations of ellipses and punctuation marks such as “!” or “?”. Most of the time, Red appears to be very stoic and serious, especially during battle. However, he is also described as curious. This curiosity is what first led to the beginning of his Pokémon journey – at eleven years old he attempted to venture into the tall grass outside of his hometown. He was stopped there by Professor Oak who warned him that wild Pokémon lurk in the tall grass and that it would be dangerous to venture outside of town without a Pokémon of his own to battle them with. Since that day, Red’s curiosity and fascination with Pokémon has led him all over the world to fill his Pokédex by capturing them, as well as engage in many battles and tournaments involving Pokémon.

Above all things, Pokémon are Red’s number one passion. Red is known for forming special bonds with each and every Pokémon he captures – these bonds are what lead to Red becoming such a successful Pokémon trainer and have even been known to frustrate other trainers who have a more difficult time finding success with their Pokémon. Red cares deeply about all of the Pokémon of the world and while he does not put as much focus into strategizing during battle, he still manages to be one of the most successful and renowned trainers in the world. Several people in canon comment on Red’s ability to bond with his Pokémon after he has defeated them in battle. He recognizes that Pokémon and trainers are meant to be partners and work together to find success and he values this relationship above everything else. Out of all of his Pokémon, Red has formed the strongest bond with his first Pokémon, Pikachu, who he does not keep in a Pokéball and has with him at all times.

Red’s motivations can sometimes be mysterious. After Red becomes the champion of the Kanto league, for example, he spends a large chunk of time training on a secluded mountain called “Mt. Silver”. During this time, he makes little to (eventually) no contact with anyone in his life, even including his mother. Little is known about why Red secluded himself on the mountain or why he eventually chose to return. However, this is considered to be a very introspective part of his life. It shows that he is sometimes prone to shutting others out of his life and that he values having time alone to train with his Pokémon even if it means sacrificing relationships with other humans.

One thing that can be said about Red is that he has a strong sense of what is right and wrong and is always concerned with finding justice in unjust situations. This is largely evidenced by the fact that he almost single-handedly took down Team Rocket – a band of criminals bent on exploiting Pokémon for their own gains – when he lived in the Kanto region. Red will not hesitate to rush headlong into a dangerous situation if the well-being of Pokémon or other trainers is at risk. He is extremely brave and will not think twice about helping someone if he feels that it is the right thing to do – in fact, it is almost as if Red sees no other choice in the matter. He is without a doubt a protagonist and a hero in his canon and will do whatever he can to right the wrongs that he sees in the world.

One major influence on Red’s life has been another trainer named “Blue”. Blue and Red began their lives as friends until Blue became interested in Pokémon and began to bully Red. Once Red and Blue both had Pokémon of their own and started their Pokémon journeys, they met several times along the way as rivals, Blue always challenging Red (and always facing defeat from him). Red values that Blue can always bring out the best battling that he has in him and always presents him with a challenge. He values Blue’s advice despite the other’s biting words and is motivated to do well in order to show the other that he can be successful. By the end of Pokémon Sun and Moon, Blue and Red are working together at that Alola Battle Tree and are on good terms. But, at the end of the day, Red’s largest motivation will always be giving his Pokémon the best experience that he can and strengthening his bond with them more and more each and every day.

Red will be coming into game with four of his Pokémon – Pikachu, Charizard, Venusaur, and Blastoise. The last three mentioned will be holding Mega-Evolution stones – stones that allow Pokémon to temporarily evolve past their final form into a more powerful Mega form. (Movesets are all taken from in-game movesets).

Pikachu: “Pikachu, the Mouse Pokémon. It can generate electric attacks from the electric pouches located in both of its cheeks.”; Pikachu is about 1’04” tall. It has a naughty nature and is mischievous. Its ability is Static (Pokémon will become paralyzed after coming into contact with it).
Its moves:
-Volt Tackle: A life-risking tackle that slightly hurts the user.
-Quick Attack: The user lunges at the target at a speed that makes it almost invisible. This move always goes first.
-Light Screen: A wondrous wall of light is put up to reduce damage from special attacks.
-Nuzzle: The user attacks by nuzzling its electrified cheeks against the target. This also leaves the target with paralysis.

Charizard: Charizard is a large dragon, 5'07". It is capable of flight and transporting its trainer around. It has a bold nature and is proud of its power. Its ability is Blaze; When Charizard is extremely weakened, the power of its Fire-type attacks exponentially grows. It is holding Charizardite X which allows it to mega-evolve into Charizard X - it's ability then becomes Tough Claws which boosts the power of a Pokémon's physical moves.
Its moves:
-Dragon Dance: The user vigorously performs a mystic, powerful dance that boosts its attack power and increases its speed.
-Dragon Rush: The user tackles the target while exhibiting overwhelming menace. It may also make the target flinch.
-Flare Blitz: The user cloaks itself in fire and charges at the target. The user sustains serious damage and may leave the target burned.
-Rock Slide: Large boulders are hurled at the opposing Pokémon to inflict damage. This may also make the opposing Pokémon flinch.

Blastoise: Blastoise is a large tortoise Pokémon with canons on its back, 5'03". It has a hardy nature and has a sturdy body. Its ability is Torrent (When Blastoise is extremely weakened, the power of its Water-type attacks exponentially grows). It is holding Blastoisinite which will allow it to evolve into Mega Blastoise, making its ability Mega Launcher (Mega Launcher boosts the strength of aura and pulse moves - see below - used by a Pokémon with this Ability.).
Its moves:
-Water Pulse: The user attacks the foe with a pulsing blast of water. It may also confuse the foe.
-Aura Sphere: The user looses a blast of aura power from deep within its body. The attack tracks the target's movement, making it difficult to avoid.
-Dark Pulse: The user releases a horrible aura imbued with dark thoughts. It may also make the target flinch.
-Dragon Pulse: The foe is attacked with a shock wave generated by the user's gaping mouth.

Venusaur: Venusaur is a large plant/dinosaur Pokémon that stands at 6'07". It has a bashful nature and is often lost in thought. Its ability is overgrow (When Venusaur is extremely weakened, the power of its Grass-type attacks exponentially grows). It will be holding Venusaurite which will allow it to evolve into Mega Venusaur, making its ability Thick Fat (reduces the effectiveness of fire or ice-based powers on Venusaur thanks to a thicker layer of skin/fat).
Its moves:
-Synthesis: The user restores its own HP. The amount of HP regained varies with the weather.
-Substitute: The user creates a decoy to take damage in its place.
-Sludge Bomb: A ball of sludge is hurled at the enemy. The sludge may poison anyone coming into contact with it.
-Giga Drain: Venusaur drains the opponent's life energy with the strange flowering plant on its back to heal itself.

Creature Communication: Creature communication will allow Red to telepathically communicate/converse with Pokémon, animals, and other mythical creatures.

COMMUNITY POST (VOICE) SAMPLE: A network thread from the TDM. - (please read parent comment/top level for context - network - video)

[It had started with a heavy rain. A little rain never hurt anybody, right? A lot of rain, on the other hand, had left the city in shambles – cars washed away in the streets, chunks of wood and uprooted trees floating along with them. Red had hopped onto his Charizard long enough to find higher ground on the rooftop of one particularly tall building. Even so, the surface of the water is only a few floors down from where he stands now, surveying the area. It would have been easy enough to reach the Porter and make it to one of the other cities (even given the turmoil that they were currently experiencing as well), but Red knows that where there’s flooding, there is danger, and with his Blastoise and his Charizard in hand, he may be able to be of some help.

[The opportunity comes when he spots a large piece of wood rushing along beneath him – attached to one of its ends, a small child, clinging desperately to it as it tosses in the water.]


[Red wastes no time, immediately withdrawing a Pokéball from his belt and tossing it forward, his Blastoise emerging from it. Red doesn’t need to direct his Pokémon, telepathically or not, simply pointing forward to the struggling child and climbing onto its back. He glances up to his Charizard, still perched on the roof, and signals for it to follow with a wave of his arm just before Blastoise crashes into the water.

[It’s a struggle to hold on at first, but Red feels no panic as the brown, swirling waters thrash around him. His eyes are immediately back on the child, his finger thrusting forward again in the boy’s direction for his Blastoise to follow. The waters are moving fast, but the strong-swimming Pokémon makes it over to the driftwood in only a matter of minutes.]

Hold on!

[His voice can barely be heard over the rushing water, despite its rare boost in volume. He slowly, carefully steadies himself to a crouch on his Blastoise’s shell, holding on to one of its canons with one hand while his other extends toward the struggling child. The child still clings to the wood, afraid to move an inch lest he be sucked into the flood beneath him. But Red can see that his hands are slipping. He has to act fast or this kid is a goner. So, he lunges forward, wrapping a strong arm around the child and lifting him in one quick movement onto the Blastoise with him, nearly slipping off into the water as he does so.

[But they make it. The child clings to Red as Blastoise continues to bob with them in the water. Giving the child a light squeeze, Red then turns toward his Charizard who is hovering above them in the sky, signaling for him to come down as close to the water as possible. The fire Pokémon hesitates, letting out a low growl as the water splashes at the flame on its tail, but it manages to swing in low enough for Red to place the child on its back and then climb up after him. He gives the Charizard’s neck a solid pat then, glances down at the Blastoise to wave it back in the direction of the roof where they had been standing, and waits for the Charizard to bring them back safely to high ground.]

FINAL NOTES: Red will be coming into game with his bag holding a small stock of Pokéballs, medicines (full heals/revive/potions), berries, and his National ver. Kanto Pokédex.
