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.

In Pokemon: The Origin
Red get's his design from the remakes of the original games, Fire Red/Leaf Green. He chooses Charmander as his starter, because it coincides with his name. Like the games and manga, his Rival is Green, and because he didn't want to choose a Pokemon for the same reason as Red, he decides to go for Squirtle instead of Bulbasuar.
