    Default The Status of Our Friend Red.

    I was thinking and realized.. Is Red really the epic guy we once knew still? I mean he stopped a criminal organization. So lets think if he met gen 3 or 4's heroes.
    Brendan/May:So I stopped these two rival hippie groups from drastically ruining the worlds geography..
    Lucas/Dawn:I stopped a psychopath with NO emotion yet had a crobat from destroying the known world with god pokemon.
    Red:... ..
    THE REAL REASON RED IS SPEECHLESS.
    then Gold walks in..
    Gold:Dude I had to finish up cleaning up the mess you left with Team Rocket. And rebeat your Region.
    That leaves Red with the accomplishment of capturing Mewtwo and leaving Mt.Ceruleon in ruins in GS.. Which is revoked in HG/SS where it is in fact Gold that captures Mewtwo. As well as the birds. And With an Arceus in hand finishes the god subplot of DPPT and gains a newborn minigod.
    Gold even steals the epicness of Brendan summoning Rayquaza by getting his own.
    Gold/Hibiki/Ethan whatever you wish to call him.
    Anyways. Red got shafted. His only legacy if you can call it one, is being the inspiration of Ash.

    So basically what you're trying to say is, Gold is the new Red?
    You're running after something that you'll never kill; if this what you want, then fire at will...

    I think instead of a quote, I might just start listing the number of people whose signatures contain quotes by me. My goal is to be in ALL OF THEM.

    Red is epic. Look at his sprite. Only Leaf and Cynthia are cooler. His team is epic. His personality? Epic (but he's apparently a blabber mouth). Does anyone else isolate themself from everyone and stand in a frozen mountain, without a coat, in the dark? For months on end?

    However..Dawn and May are technically better then him when it comes to what they did. Dawn saved the flipping ''world'' and May beat two cults.

    Lyra/Ethan? Not so much.

    Except Lyra/Ethan beat Red.

    Red is the symbol for epic in pokemon in G/S/C/HG/SS. you find him in/on the deepest part of a cave full of powerful pokemon and come across him, standing all cool looking and stuff, and battle the strongest trainer in the series.

    How do we know that Red was ever beaten? What you do in the game is not canon.

    Well, yea. But team wise they didn't do much but defeat Neo-TR which already seemed a bit pathetic in my opinion.

    Red is still the most badass character in the series.

    It's not canon that Mewtwo is captured by anyone, all we know is that Mewtwo is battled by them. Whether you as the player character chooses to catch them or not does not affect the canon.

    Yeah, whenever I play the game, I like to just think Gold/Ethan/Kris/Lyra's story ends when they challenge Red and he sends out Pikachu.

    Poor Red. He was so cool back then, but all the games have just getting so much more dramatic. Just like with the legendaries. Mewtwo used to be woah-so-awesome, but now we have Arceus, the freaking Pokemon god.

    You do have a point. Ethan has done far more than Red. But Red is still awesome. He did take League champ, he did defeat TR (come on, it's not Red's fault they came back), he spent three years atop a mountain in the snow without a coat, and he's the toughest trainer in the games. Sure you beat him (like everyone else) but that doesn't make him less epic.
