God, Red is so overrated.

I like Red, I really do. But right now, every comment I read on Youtube is literally this:

OMG THE TRUE CHAMPION HAS ARRIVED ASH YOU SUCH A NOOB GO AWAY YOU SUCK THE TRUE POKEMON CHAMPION HAS ARRIVED RED IS AMAZING

And it's annoying. Especially since these people don't seem to realize this won't become an actual animated series like our true Pokémon anime.

    Agreed. I've always hated when people do this. I've ranted about this so many times I won't bother going into detail here. xD

    Red isn't even that cool of a character. I can't see where the appeal even comes from. Just your average 10-year old who managed to defeat one of the strongest in his universe like in most games with kids around that age. He also has no interesting personality or unique enough character traits. I'm happy that Misty wasn't shown in the trailer, even though her personality would be incredibly different. That would just make her fans go crazy for the wrong reasons.

    Unfortunately , Ash died when he got his ass kicked by a rookie 3rd time and lose the league to a idiot who didn't even brought a 6th pokemon.
    I hope Pokemon origin are those time of Anime where trainer use Only One Pokemon .

    He's a silent protagonist... like every other playable character. His personality is what you give him.

    And all of his counterparts have more-or-less the same personality.

    When you look at the in-game accomplishments, Red's aren't even that impressive. I like Red, but he's certainly not my favorite player character.

    At this moment , Any protagonist can be better then Ash !
    As long as they doesn't get their butt kick by a rookie and an idiot after their 5 year journey .
    I mean , If Red Beat the E4 then he will consider Better then Ash who can't even win a League and anybody who act like Paul .

    Exactly! Which is also why I still can't see the appeal in him.

    I like Red, but I definitely think that he's overrated. Aside from the nostalgia factor and the fact that players were able to battle him in the second generation games, I don't quite see the mast appeal for Red. There are other protagonists in later games that have better designs and they're all silent protagonists, so he doesn't offer anything interesting or unique personality wise.

    Why in the world do we all assume we already know how Red is going to be personality-wise? He could be the complete opposite of Ash or just be like him when he first started out or something completely different. We don't know. What we do know, based on the trailer, is that he has a fondness for Pokémon and has a rivalry with Blue/Green. That's all, really.

    Red lost to Lyra/Ethan. He isn't even that great. I do like him a bit, though, even if I feel like most male protagonists are more interesting tham him, with the exception of Brendan and Nate. Not to mention that Leaf is definitely my favorite and personal canon protagonist from Kanto. XD

    Most if not all versions of Red have a similar personality, there is no reason to think he will be the complete opposite in Origins.

    well at least this didnt have the same reaction that "Free!" did when that anime was announced

    It's because Game Red is basically ourselves. For instance, I played as Pokemon Trainer Red in Generation 1. Thus, I was Red - the ultimate trainer who beet my snobby rival and became the champion.

    I think it's mostly from that we (Red fans) see ourselves as Red that we think Red is awesome - a.k.a, we are awesome.


    Mind, I don't worship Red. XDD Just an example.

    You're talking about the manga versions of Red? I doubt they'll take inspirations from them and instead focus on the game.

    I kind of agree. Red is good, but Ash isn't bad - he'sjustbeing abused by incompetent writers - Red got off easier than him.

    That's what Tsutarja was getting at.

    You don't think being badly written makes a character bad?

    I meant he COULD be good, if he didn't have incompetent writers, but that's not the case. Red is lucky he didn't share the same fate as him. Ash was great in the Indigo league, Orange Islands and Johto series, and good for AG (seasons 6-8.)
