Red is the original protagonist of the Pokemon series of games, appearing in the Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow versions (as well as their remakes, FireRed and LeafGreen). Red is a typical 11-year-old boy who sets out on his journey from Pallet Town, with Blue as his rival, eventually ending up as the Pokemon Champion. In the games, Red is--as with the other player characters in the series--a silent protagonist. In the Pokemon Origins anime, Red is characterised as a typical shonen protagonist: young, brash, and energetic. He appears as a bonus boss battle in Gold, Silver, and Crystal, as well as in the Champions Tournament in Black 2 and White 2.
