They use their skilled mind to choose who to attack and what to attack with. They literally have the power at their fingertips, and even at such a young age, has grown to be the champion at what they do.
For them, actions speak louder then words...
Who's That Smasher?
|It's Pokémon Trainer!|
My First Reaction
This Trainer wasn't exactly on my radar as an actual character with an identity until HeartGold/SoulSilver, but I've been playing as him since Pokémon Yellow (apparently).
I loved the game with my Pikachu following me everywhere, and I liked playing Pokémon LeafGreen as well for GameBoy Advance. And as I heard of the Pokémon Trainer's accomplishments (like in the Pokémon manga), I grew to admire him more to the point that he is now one of my favorite characters.
Through His Series?
In general, Pokémon Trainers are anyone from ages 10 and older who trains, catches, cares for, and battles with Pokémon.
|Although there are preschool children with Pokémon. How did |
they get the pass to travel around and train?
|He even defeated their leader Giovanni!|
|And that challenger is Ethan/Gold or Lyra in HeartGold/SoulSilver.|
In Super Smash Brothers
Pokémon Trainer is basically three characters in one with his Pokémon team of Charizard, Squirtle, and Ivysaur.
|It's Red's job to decide which Pokémon is best to send out.|
|And Withdraw is a surprisingly effective attack as well.|
|Whew! That was a close one!|
|I don't know where he gets those rocks so quickly...|
As a Character
Pokémon Trainer does have a name, as I've mentioned: it's Red. Red doesn't talk in game, but his friend/rival Blue says that he's a chatty gossip. Red also takes his training very seriously, isolating himself on top of Mt. Silver to improve his skills.
As a Trainer, Red's caught plenty of Pokémon through his journey, with Pikachu being his strongest. He also acquired a Snorlax on the roads, an Eevee that later evolved into an Espeon, a Scizor, Tauros, Lapras, and more. He treats them all with love and care, building bonds through their Pokémon Battles.
|He's more of a Pokémon Master then Ash will ever be...|
His biggest friend there is his Pikachu of course. He raised it himself, and is very close to him. He's also friendly with Samus, for taking care of Pikachu in his absence.
Smash Bros 4 Changes?
My #1 change: acknowledge the Pokémon Trainer as Red! That means changing the name to "Pokémon Trainer Red" or just "Red".
|Give the dude some recognition.|
As for Red, I want them to reflect that cool-looking guy found on the mountain. Like changing his stance in the background and some of his animations to someone more serious, but still youthful and full of energy.
Finally, I hope that they make Squirtle's Water Gun deal damage. If not, that's OK, but it'd be a nice surprise.
|Pokémon Trainer Red would like to battle.|
Even so, some people want Red to go back to Mt. Silver and stay there. Others, want Red to stay and show the Smashers what a Pokémon Champion can do.
I'm with the latter. He is one of the Smashers I want to stay in a great amount, much like Wario. I don't want a newer trainer based of Black/White. Just Red is good for me.
But I want to know readers: Would YOU like to keep Pokémon Trainer Red in Super Smash Brothers 4?
