Red is a main character in the manga series Pokémon Adventures. His first Pokémon was a Poliwag, which evolved into a Poliwhirl when saving him from drowning prior to the beginning of the story, and evolved once more into a Poliwrath in Buzz off, Electabuzz!.
Red's special skill, as described by Professor Oak, is Pokémon battling. As such, he is called the "Fighter" (戦う者 Fighter).
In later adventures, Red has been viewed as a leader amongst the Pokédex holders, second only to Professor Oak.
Red wears a red jacket, black undershirt, a red and white cap, and blue jeans, along with a black bandana around his knee from the Yellow chapter onwards.
Red is extremely competitive when it comes to his rival, Green. They both swore to become strong trainers and share both a close friendship and a strong rivalry.
