Classic Pokemon Trainer Red by Skatoonist Classic Pokemon Trainer Red by Skatoonist
We all know that some videogame characters

go through major makeovers through out the years.

Some may like the changes some don't

Example: Sonic (before he became EXTREMELY humanoid)

One such of a character is Pokemon Trainer Red, from the R/B/Y
series, after the release of Firered and Leafgreen, the new appearance of Pkmn trainer Red has changed into a more
modern anime style:[link]

I for one HATE the new Red, as the new look makes him look less of a champion, and more of a fan service like character to the female audiences ( plus he lost his earth badge logo, and was replaced with a crappy half poke ball logo!!!!!! ), I prefer the old bad ass version look, prior to Leaf green and Fire red.

Another thing, I also HATE Ash Ketchum, he's a wimp compared to Red even though Ash's design and character was based from him.

Additionally since we were on the topic of classic stuff,
listen to this: [link]
( any decent pokemon fan would definitely remember this one!!) :thumbsup:

IF THAT LINK DIDN"T BRING YOU NOSTALGIA HEAVEN MAYBE
THIS WILL!!!: [link]


Pokemon Trainer Red is the property
of Game freak and Nintendo

I personally prefer the firered / greenleaf design of red, but this is way better than the emo senpai drawings of red, cool!

This is just amazing!
At least SOMEBODY remembers what the "real classic" Red looks like instead of some tall, emo, hot-anime-guy-wannabe gary-stu. (Search up Pokemon Red or Trainer Red here)
Anyways, cool work here. :)

I personally like Ash and Red, their both awesome in my eyes. Dont hate me for this, but I kind of see Red being Ash's older brother that he looks up to.

Red=NOT ASH. Ash only has a few, Red has ALL of 'em but Mew (nobody.has.Mew.)

To me, his current look makes him look MORE of a champion, especially with his frown, adding more to the badass within him.
With his old look, to me, he looks less of a champion, just my opinion.

what makes me sad is when these supposed pokemon trainers who only know fire red and leaf green have no clue WHY it called leaf green. its because the original pokemon in japan was pokemon Red and Green, and then it was more popular as Red and Blue. My boyfriends likes to cosplay as Trainer green from the very first one. its impossible to get the EXACT costume so we improvise. were working on making a custom one for him that is trainer Red, and instead of it being red its green. I am always a loyal pokemon to him.

The first link didn't give me nostalia as I never owned a N64 as a kid, but a PS1, so I never played PKMN Stadium. The 1st intro theme however, gives me big time nostaliga rush! ;D

But I agree, I love Red's old design, even though I had watched the anime beforehand and therefore thought "now wait a sec... Ash doesn't look like that" xD So I came to believe that it was just an early design, but I LOVED IT!!! :D

I love Ash too I really do, and I love the 1st season, but I hate the fact that he loses 99/100 battles! Sure someone says that the series want's to show us that you have to keep going even when you lose, but why give us a role model who seems to never make any progress at all?? How many of the first 151 Pokémon did he catch, and how many did he spare?

Can't anybody stop bashing Ash? Both Red and Ash have their good things and bad things. For one thing, at least Ash has more friends than that loner Red who doesn't even bother talking to his rival, Professor Oak or his MOM!!

See what I did there?

Hey don't bash on Ash! (Ha! See what I did there? xD ) Anyways, don't blame Ash for who he is. In the first season he was pretty alright. Blame the writers who are making the current Ash do what he does. I don't even consider this current Ash "to be" Ash.

"I don't even consider this current Ash "to be" Ash."

For me Ash died after the second seasond season of pokemon.

that or after they replaced his Voice actor!

To me, Ash died when they gave him a change of eye colour in season 14. Misunderstand me not, I thought the series had dragged on too long, long before that, but s14 was when the main character died, also because I couldn't forgive them for replacing Brock!

I like Ash. He's popular to cosplay at cons if you do it correctly.

But yes, RED is better than Ash. I'll admit that.
