A new Pokémon Trainer named Red and his arrogant rival, Blue, set out from Professor Oak’s laboratory on a journey to complete the Pokédex. At first, Red doesn’t really know what he’s doing and finds it difficult to connect with his Charmander when they battle. But soon he meets Gym Leader Brock, who sets him on the path to win eight badges and challenge the Pokémon League!
