Reasons Why Red Is Better Than Ash


The Top Ten

1 Red beat the Elite 4 and champion

Everybody should stop hating on Ash. He may not have won a Pokemon league after 20 years, but he's still a great trainer; he even made it all the way to the finals in the Kalos. Plus what makes Red any better than any other game protagonists? - yungstirjoey666

Red is a legend while Ash is a weirdo. - EpicJake

Firstly, all the protagonists in Pokemon games are showed overpowered and they even defeat doctorate level trainers within a span of few days. You can't get more unrealistic than that (Ash as a character is far more realistic than Red's character ever will.) Secondly, Red caught 150 Pokemon because he had to fill the pokedex, Ash's pokedex is already filled so he only focuses on the league. Third, Ash has aged, only the BW saga screwed that thing up. Look XY Ash and the Ash of previous generations, you'd clearly see he has grown a little. - Kiteretsunu

For me any character who strives for his goals and is realistic at the same time is the character I can better relate to. Which makes Ash better than Red for me. - Kiteretsunu

8 Red basically has a T-chart of why he is better

This isn't even a reason. Your saying that there are several reasons why he is better,b ut you don't list them in this very choice. this list, on the other hand, does explain why, therefore, this choice is pointless and just shows arrogance from the red fanboys. - HeavyDonkeyKong
