I want to become a Trainer who truly understands Pokémon. These creatures stay by our sides, battling for us as friends and partners. I want to understand everything there is to know about them."

Jason Reid (唖畑 Ahatake), commonly referred to as Reid (唖歯 Aha) is a Pokémon trainer from the Hora Region. He started his Journey in Eden Town. He debuted in Snivy, I choose you!. Before Jason and Silus! Six on Six Pokémon Battle!, he was considered a doppleganger of Red. He travels with Misty and Ivory, fellow Pokémon Trainers. Jason is good at making Contest Appeals, and can use Contest tactics in normal battles to his advantage. Because of this, Professor Changi has said Jason's special skill is appealing and is called, "The Appealer".
Jason has dark black hair, and wears a red cap turned backwards. He wears a short sleeved open jacket with a black shirt. He also wears blue, loose pants, and red sneakers, and, like many traveling trainers, a Bag. After his rematch with Silus, his mother sent him a new outfit, consisting of a red and black hat, a closed red and black jacket, long black pants, and red and black sneakers, as well as gloves, also red and black. His new Bag is also red.
Jason, ever since he was a young boy, has always been fascinated with Pokémon. Despite his mother's warnings as a child, he would often run out of the house to play with Pokémon on Route 1. Despite being very confident when battling with Pokémon, he easily loses his confidence when something happens to change the flow of battle, such as when Yianni brought in his Mew. Due to inexperience, Jason oftens makes mistakes stereotypical of a rookie trainer, such as throwing a Poké Ball at an intended target without even battling it, and sending out a bad type match-up against his opponent.
As a Trainer, Jason seems to favor cuter Pokémon over others, though he is more than willing to train any Pokémon that comes into his care. When raising Pokémon, he focuses on their speed moreso than attacking power, and his training often results in
Jason has a fear of bird-based Flying-type Pokémon because, as a child, he was attacked by a Pideotto.
Jason was born in Eden Town in the Hora Region. Even as in infant, he loved the company of Pokémon, spending time often around his mother's Skitty. Then, one day, when he was 5, he wandered out of the house and onto the forest on Route 1. He just wanted to find some Pokémon, but he accidentally disturbed the nest of a Pidgeotto. It began to attack him, but he was rescued by a Snivy, who defeated the Pidgeotto. But when Jason wanted to thank it, it ran away. Due to this, he gained a liking for Snivy, but also a fear for bird-like Flying-types. When he returned home, knew he'd become a Trainer when he became 10.
In the Games Edit
Jason appears first in the game Pokémon Silver, and then in every game thereafter as male the protagonist (in LastionLover5000's game). He starts off as a Trainer in New Bark Town, where he recieves his first Pokémon, a Chikorita, from Professor Elm. From there, he begins his Journey as a Trainer, battling every gym in Johto, and his rival Scoey along the way, as well as defeating Team Rocket. He then manages to beat the Elite Four and Lance, becoming Champion, though his journey doesn't end there. He goes through Kanto, defeating their leaders, until he faces and defeats the Legendary Trainer Red. Even after this, his journey doesn't end, as he proceeds through the Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova, defeating their gyms and otherworldly challenges. He is now making preparations to go to a new Region.
