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.

Daisy Oak

Green's older, and much friendlier, sister.


The technical genius who invented the storage system.

  • Butt-Monkey: Among other things, Pika seems to enjoy shocking him for no good reason.
  • Gadgeteer Genius
  • Kansai Regional Accent: 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.
  • Ship Tease: With Daisy. This exchange from FRLG 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.


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.

  • Aborted Declaration of Love: 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.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Her crush on Red.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Even moreso than her game and anime counterparts. This Misty wears a tubetop and jean shorts that prominently shows off her belly.
  • Big Fancy House: Has one.
  • Can't Catch Up: 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.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Against Red when he stayed at her mansion; notable in that she was the first person to do so.
  • Fiery Red Head
  • First Girl Wins: 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 kidnapped rescued him. Granted, the first time, she really should've taken her chances, as Red didn't know Yellow was a girl yet.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: Inverted with Red.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: 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.
  • Interrupted Declaration of Love: By Gold at the end of GSC arc.
  • Jumped at the Call: 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.
  • Making a Splash
  • Pimped-Out Dress: She wears one when she brings Red to her Big Fancy House.
  • Plucky Girl
  • Sidekick Glass Ceiling: 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, something she acknowledges that only the Dex Holders can do. But she'll be damned if she doesn't put up a good fight doing so.
  • Stripperific: She generally wears a tiny tube top and short shorts, and not much else.
  • Tearful Smile: 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.


An elegant lady, Erika is the Gym Leader of Celadon City who specializes in Grass types. She also teaches at her city's university and serves as supervisor for the rest of her region's Leaders.


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

  • Badass Mustache: Hilariously, at one point he reveals he wears a fake one because he accidentally burned off his real one during training.
  • Body Horror: 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.
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Cool Shades
  • Heel–Face Turn: Hearing of Red's heroic exploits was a big motivation for him to skip out on Team Rocket and join the good guys.
  • Kick the Dog: 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.
  • Mad Scientist: Used to work as one for Team Rocket.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: The disaster with Mewtwo was a wake-up call for him.
  • Playing with Fire: Fire types are his speciality.
  • Shout-Out: At one point in the Yellow arc he wears a disguise that resembles the 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.

  • Badass Normal: 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.)
  • Disappeared Dad: 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.
  • Doppleganger Spin
  • 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.

Super Nerd Miles/William (Akihito)

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


Professor Elm

The Pokémon professor of the Johto region, Elm was unfortunate enough to be robbed of Totodile by Silver and could only watch as Gold took Cyndaquil to track him down.


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).


The Gym Leader of Azalea Town, who first appears as an archaeologist, Bugsy meets Gold at the Ruins of Alph. Specializes in bug-types.


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.

  • Adaptational Wimp: She's notorious for being That One Boss in the games, but is one of the weakest Gym Leaders here, to the point that Suicune doesn't even bother with her when he's looking for a leader to be his partner.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: She shows a surprising amount of skill when battling the fake ice Suicune.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: She is the receiving 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 it chose Misty as its partner as well.
  • Jerkass: Impetuous, impulsive, selfish, stubborn and temperamental all in one.


A trainer with clairvoyant psychic abilities, Morty is the Leader of the Ecruteak City Gym. Specializes in ghost-types.

  • Psychic Powers: 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.
  • Scarf of Asskicking
  • Soul Power


The Gym Leader of Mahagony Town, who specializes in fighting-types. Chuck was the one who taught Green how to train Pokémon. He runs a dojo.


The Olivine City Gym Leader who was caught in Ecruteak City earthquake, she had to save herself because Gold and Silver were too busy fighting over who would save her. She specializes in the steel-type, though she has other types on her team. Her part-time job is looking after the Sparkle Lighthouse.


The Leader of Mahogany Town's Gym, Pryce specializes in ice-types. A frail old man in a wheelchair. Or is he?


Lance's cousin, Clair shares his affinity for dragon-types. Gym Leader of Blackthorn City Gym.

Crystal's mom

A hyper woman with a rather childish demeanor, Crystal's mom can still be serious when the time calls for it.


A Trainer in pursuit of the legendary Pokemon Suicune. He formed a rivalry with Crystal during the events of the Crystal arc,but by the end of the arc they become on much friendlier terms with each other. He also has a more minor role in the HGSS arc where he encounters Silver.


Professor Birch

The Hoenn Pokémon professor, and father of Sapphire. Unlike the previously mentioned professors, he seems to do much more field work.


A major supporting character who at one point temporarily holds a Pokedex. Ruby helps give him some Pokémon training when Norman (who doesn't show up until after Ruby's gone, much to his relief) rejects training him, but the two get separated soon thereafter. His "starter" is Ruby's Ralts, Ruru, who was eventually returned to her true trainer. His first Pokémon is a Kecleon.

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In the games Wally has blue eyes.
  • Badass Adorable: In fact, many wanted him to be the third Hoenn Dex Holder instead of Emerald.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Green hair and green eyes.
    • And green Pokémon! All six of them, not to mention he was important in waking Rayquaza! It's never commented on in the comic itself, but the tradition is carried on in the webcomic Pokémon-X, which 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.
  • Dragon Rider: Straightest example here. He has a Flygon.
  • Handicapped Badass: The kid appears to have awful asthma, and it gives him some complications near the end of the arc when he trained under Norman en route to Rayquaza. Does he let that stop him?
    • The ventilation mask he wears for said asthma lets him breath in Rayquaza's ozone filled room
  • Incurable Cough of Death: Well, he was never really dying, but he was weak in body. But like it says above, he proves himself badass.
  • You Gotta Have Green Hair

A reporter and her cameraman, these two ally themselves with Ruby and Sapphire early on, determined to find out who is reponsible for reeking havoc in Hoenn.

  • Hot Scientist
  • '80s Hair
  • Straw Hypocrite: Called out by N for treating Pokemon as things and not caring for them enough to give them to their Trainers personally. The results weren't pretty.


Along with Bianca, he is a childhood friend of Black and chose Snivy as his starter Pokemon (Actually, Bianca chose it for him).

  • Adaptational Villainy: To the point that he joins Team Plasma, something he would never have done in the games (he was one of the people most vehemently against Plasma in the game).

  • Apologizes a Lot: Apologizes for even the most pointless of reasons.
  • Bad Boss: When fighting Black at the Pokemon league he reveals that he doesn't have any attachment to his Pokemon. His Snivy hasn't even evolved.
  • Childhood Friends: To Black and Bianca.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Particularly in regard to Black being a Large Ham.
  • Demoted to Extra: Though he possesses a Pokedex and was a rival in the original game, the fact that he's not named after a version and that said Pokedex is damaged places him to supporting character.

  • Face–Heel Turn: At the Pokemon League, he reveals that he's joined Team Plasma. Later on, it's revealed that he's been brainwashed into doing so, though.

  • Making a Splash
  • Super Senses: He has a very good sense of smell, especially when it comes to water.

An aspiring Furfrou groomer, and childhood friends with a number of other characters.

  • Break the Cutie: She has, in order, watched her friend fall into depression, have her hometown blown up, lose one of her Pokemon, and been brainwashed while having her life force sucked out of her. No wonder she's rather bitter.
  • Little Miss Snarker: A complete 180 degree turn from her game counterpart, but seeing all the misfortune she's gone through, it's understandable.

Professor Sycamore

  • Horrible Judge of Character: Is this considering Lysandre, constantly praising him. Unlike the games, everyone else is suspicious and wary of Lysandre, making the professor seem even more oblivious in contrast.


The Gym Leader of Santalune City, the gang initially isn't very fond of her as she works for the press along side of her sister, but they agree to her offer of help.

  • Taking the Bullet: When a possessed Shauna tries to use a Honedge to strike down Y, Viola jumps in the way of the attack.
