Ash, of course. The aspect of Pokemon that entertains me the most is the anime, not the games, not the manga, not anything else.
Game!Red will be nothing more than an overglorified sprite to me. Ash is much much much more than that, he is my inspiration, he is why I still watch the anime (though his BW days weren't pretty to watch), he influenced my childhood greatly and I am grand grand fan of his.
That is my opinion anyway.
