!!'''Professor Oak'''

Grandfather of Green and Daisy, his full name is Samuel Oak. He is a researcher who invented the Pokédex and sent out Red on his journey. He has a long history with Agatha, Pryce, and the Johto Daycare couple.

* AdaptationalBadass: In the games, all Oak really does is piddle around at home and give you your starter Pokemon, and send you across the globe doing his own Pokemon-logging work for him. Here, he's proven to [[BadassGrandpa still be a capable Pokemon Battler, despite his hold age.]]
* BadassGrandpa: Despite his age, he's still a capable fighter.
* CoolOldGuy: It's Professor Oak.
* DistressedDude: He's been captured twice, and has to be rescued by his grandson Green.
* IWasQuiteALooker: Revealed on chapter 76, he used to be frikken ripped.
** ShoutOut to [[PunchOut Little Mac]].
* TheMentor: To Red, Green, and Blue.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Early on, when Kanto's divided by numerous problems, he's one of the few Kanto's got. And then there's letting Red keep Saur.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: With Agatha, and Pryce.

!!'''Daisy Oak'''

Green's older, and much friendlier, sister.

* CoolBigSis
* HotScientist
* ShipTease: With Bill.


The technical genius who invented the storage system.

* ButtMonkey: Among other things, Pika seems to enjoy shocking him for no good reason.
** ThrowTheDogABone: How else could [[ButtMonkey he]] get a girlfriend?
* GadgeteerGenius
* KansaiRegionalAccent: And is given a Southern accent in the English version. Hardly anybody can understand him at all. It dies down as the series goes on.
* ShipTease: With Daisy. This exchange from FRLG [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar doesn't help]]:
--> '''Green''': You're...not with my sister today?
--> '''Bill''': ''(nervously)'' Oh, uh...Daisy's at home.


The Gym Leader of Pewter City, he trains with Rock Pokémon and is also a security guard for the Pewter City Museum.

* EyesAlwaysShut
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Only in the RGB arc. He starts wearing shirts after the beginning of Yellow.
* WorthyOpponent: He chooses a worthy opponent through a series of battles before his actual gym battle.


The headstrong Gym Leader of Cerulean City, specializing in Water types. She is perhaps Red's first real ally and gave him her Gyarados, which he still keeps in his party to this day.

* AbortedDeclarationOfLove: Misty was about to confess to Red the day before he was going to take his Gym Leader test, but decided against it because she saw him talking to Yellow. She did seem to put some thought into it before deciding it wasn't the right time.
* ActionGirl
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Her crush on Red.
* BareYourMidriff: Even moreso than her game and anime counterparts. This Misty wears a tubetop and jean shorts that prominently shows off her belly.
* BigFancyHouse: Has one.
* CantCatchUp: Acknowledges this at near the end of the GSC arc; she knows that she isn't meant to fight the final battle against the Mask of Ice, but takes comfort in knowing that the Pokemon that she gave to Red (her Gyarados) and Yellow (her Omanyte, which evolved into Omastar) will be able to help out.
* CurbStompBattle: Against Red when he stayed at her mansion; notable in that she was the first person to do so.
* FieryRedHead
* FirstGirlWins: Averted, as she is the first girl Red meets on his journey and she never got the chance to confess her feelings to him. She couldn't bring herself to do it when she saw him and Yellow together the first time, and the second time Gold kind of [[strike: kidnapped]] rescued him. Granted, the first time, she really should've taken her chances, as ''Red didn't know Yellow was a girl yet''.
* HeroesWantRedheads: Inverted with Red.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: More that she wants to be ''useful'' rather than special, but she understands and is frustrated by the fact that she can never be more than support to Red and the others.
* InterruptedDeclarationOfLove: By Gold at the end of GSC arc.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Was very eager to fight alongside Suicune as its partner, as it fulfulled her desire to finally be more useful and involved in stopping the crises that Team Rocket was causing. Unfortunately for her, The Call realized it phoned the wrong number, hung up, and redialed for Crystal.
* MakingASplash
* PimpedOutDress: She wears one when she brings Red to her BigFancyHouse.
* PluckyGirl
* SidekickGlassCeiling: She's a capable Trainer and Gym Leader, enough so that Suicune designated her as a worthy partner after battling against the Gym Leaders of Kanto to find someone worthy. Unfortunately, her status as an ally of the main cast rather than as a full-fledged hero keeps her from effectively battling and ending the crises herself, [[LampshadeHanging something she acknowledges that only the Dex Holders can do]]. But she'll be damned if she doesn't [[PluckyGirl put up a good fight doing so]].
* {{Stripperific}}: She generally wears a tiny tube top and short shorts, and not much else.
* TearfulSmile: A couple of times, most notably when she finally gets to talk to Red again at the end of the GSC arc.
* {{Tomboy}}
* {{Tsundere}}: Different from Misty in the anime in that she's a very mild Type B, with her tsun tendencies being played up almost exclusively in the RGB arc.

* LadyOfWar: When the need to fight arises.
* TheLeader: Of the Kanto Gym Leaders overall.
* LovableAlphaBitch: Often makes condescending remarks towards other trainers and her opponents and has a rather snooty attitude overall, but is genuinely kind towards those she considers her companions, like Brock, Misty, and several of the Dex Owners, once they earn her trust.
* TheOjou
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Eventually turns out to be one.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: Arguably, what she did to Red when they first met and he was hell-bent on rescuing that Eevee.

* YamatoNadeshiko: Has the cultural trappings (kimono etc) and such.


An old scientist who used to work for Team Rocket, this fire specialist defected offscreen as he got sick of working for them.

* {{Badass}}: When Entei considers you one, you count.
* BadassMustache: Hilariously, at one point he reveals he wears a fake one because he accidentally burned off his real one during training.
* BodyHorror: His DNA mixed with Mewtwo's while he was creating it, leading to him developing cancerous growths that would eventually take over his body. He got better.
* CoolOldGuy
* CoolShades
* HeelFaceTurn: Hearing of Red's heroic exploits was a big motivation for him to skip out on Team Rocket and join the good guys.
* KickTheDog: This was pretty much Blaine's old job at Team Rocket, as he was to experiment on Pokémon into making them stronger, which led them to either go insane or simply be in extreme pain.
* MadScientist: Used to work as one for Team Rocket.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: The disaster with Mewtwo was a wake-up call for him.
* PlayingWithFire: Fire types are his speciality.
* ShoutOut: At one point in the Yellow arc he wears a disguise that resembles the [[{{Anime/Pokemon}} anime]] version of him.


Koga's daughter, who takes over the Fuschia Gym after his disappearence. Like her father, she specializes in poison types. She also works as a part-time freelancer ''ninja''.

* BadassNormal: She's capable of rather impressive physical feats, going with the whole ninja theme. (Although she does seem overly fond of the whole hanging upside-down on the ceiling thing.)
* DisappearedDad: She wants to see him again, as his disappearence left her not knowing what to do with her future. Due to this, most people tend to pair her with Falkner, who has similar father issues.
** It also helps that they befriend each other after their battle.
* DopplegangerSpin
* {{Ninja}}: Like her father, she uses her Pokémon for ninja-esque techniques and outfits her Pokéballs into shuriken.

!!'''Jr. Trainer Evan/Phil (Junji)'''
A trainer whose Haunter was lured away by Agatha at the Power Plant. After some help from Green, he managed to get it back. He then became one of Blaine's assistants on Cinnabar Island.

Was Erika's [[TheRival Rival]] and the one hired by Agatha to disguise as Red and recapture his Pikachu. Later becomes good friends with Evan.

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: After getting caught.
* HeelFaceTurn
* HeKnowsTooMuch
* NerdGlasses
* LatexPerfection: As Red, he even had exact same clothes and managed to duplicate his exact scent.
* PsychoForHire: He went after Red's Pikachu for Agatha, who would pay him so he could fund future experiments. He didn't know he would be slaughtered with the rest of the human race but still.
* UnknownRival: To Erika, who seems apathetic to his presence in the face of his grudge against her.
* UnwittingPawn: To Agatha after [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness outliving his usefulness.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: See above.


[[folder: Johto]]

!!'''Professor Elm'''

* ButtMonkey: To a lesser extent than Bill, though.


First appearing as a police officer, Falkner befriends Gold who helps him catch a Skarmory. He later uses it to pass the Gym Leader exam and becomes the Leader of the Violet City Gym. Looks up to his father (implied to be Wayne, an old friend of Chuck's), who was a policeman.
He befriends Janine after their battle, and they bond due to their father issues (ironically in the games themselves, they are seen arguing over whose father is better).

* AdaptationalBadass: Definitely. Game!Falkner is a rather weak Gym Leader, is not a policeman, and most likely still lives with his father. Manga!Falkner is one of the stronger Gym Leaders and lives independently of his father.
* CompositeCharacter: of Falkner the gym leader and the policeman investigating Professor Elm's lab.
* FairCop
* PeekABangs
* PrecisionGuidedBoomerang: Made from his Skarmory's cast off feathers which he then fits his Pokéballs to. He also uses them as more direct weapons.

A somewhat childish Gym Leader who specializes in normal types, Whitney is the only Gym Leader aside from Pryce who Suicune doesn't challenge. She sometimes helps her good friend DJ Mary on radio shows.

* AdaptationalWimp: Manga!Whitney doesn't even have the dreaded Miltank. She uses Cleffa and Igglybuff instead. She is also more childish than Game!Whitney. She does get better later on, though.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: She does show a surprising amount of skill when battling the fake ice Suicune.
* CurbStompBattle: She is the recieving end of this as Misty defeats her rather easily in only a few pages, which is kind of sad as the other Gym Leader battles took at least a chapter. Well, Suicune didn't bother with her for a reason...not to mention considering it chose Misty as its partner as well...
* GirlishPigtails
* {{Jerkass}}: Impetuous, impulsive, selfish, stubborn and temperamental all in one.
* NonElemental
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: Often seen with her close friend Mary.
* TookALevelInBadass: She's alot stronger in the "Heart Gold & Soul Silver" arc. Finally lives up to her game counterpart's reputation.

* PsychicPowers: As long as he has an idea of what he's looking for, he can see it and its location. (Ho-oh is out of his league though.) People actually come to him and pay him to find the things they lost or can't find.

His "starter" is Ruby's Ralts, Ruru, who was eventually returned to her true trainer. His first Pokémon is a Kecleon.

* AdaptationDyeJob: In the games Wally has blue eyes.
* BadassAdorable: In fact, many wanted him to be the third Hoenn Dex Holder instead of Emerald.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Green hair and green eyes.
** And green Pokémon! All six of them, not to mention [[spoiler:he was important in waking Rayquaza!]] It's never commented on in the comic itself, but the tradition is carried on in the webcomic ''Webcomic/PokemonX'', which [[{{Flanderization}} flanderizes it]] into an incredible obsession with Pokémon that have ANY green at all on them.
** This was to mark that Wally is the supposed third hero of the RS saga but the writers decided to just make a new character midway. At least they still gave Wally some plot related action.
* DragonRider: Straightest example here. He has a Flygon.
* HandicappedBadass: The kid appears to have awful asthma, and it gives him some complications near the end of the arc [[spoiler:when he trained under Norman en route to Rayquaza.]] Does he let that stop him?
** [[spoiler:The ventilation mask he wears for said asthma lets him breath in Rayquaza's ozone filled room]]
* IncurableCoughOfDeath: Well, he was never really dying, but he was weak in body. But like it says above, he proves himself badass.
