Overview Edit

Character Edit

Richard anime art

Richard's anime artwork.

Richard is the only son of Professor Kauri, and was originally from Eden Town. Like Silus, Richard had a rather long delay on starting his Pokémon journey, due to constantly helping his mother with her research. Richard left on his Pokémon journey the same day as Silus, having received a Pokémon, specifically a Totodile, from Professor Changi — allowing his mother to move to Saponaria City to continue her research. Like Silus, Richard also wishes to participated in the Hora League and become its Champion, along with having the side dream of becoming a Gym Leader.

Unlike Silus, he does not travel in a group, preferring instead to travel alone. Like Silus and Jason Reid, Richard is a Pokédex holder, earning the title "The Battler" from Professor Changi, due to his incredible battling talents.

Personality Edit

Richard is often seen as the polar opposite of Silus, being rash, blunt, and arrogant — likely a trait inherited from his rather harsh mother. Though he considers his Pokémon his partners, he is not as loving towards them as Silus is. He enjoys to battle, so much so, that he will challenge any battle facilities nearby.

Equipment Edit

In the games Edit

In Pokémon Red, Green, and Blue, Pokémon Yellow, and Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, Blue is the player's rival: he will meet up with the player as he or she journeys across the Kanto region, challenging him or her every once in a while to test their skills. Like the player, he receives a starter Pokémon from Professor Oak, his grandfather: the one he chooses will be of the type which weakens the type of the player's choice. In Yellow, he will take the Eevee Oak had intended for the player.

Eventually, Blue becomes the Champion at Indigo Plateau, though he is defeated by the player before Professor Oak arrives to congratulate him. Frustrated, he journeys to the Sevii Islands at Professor Oak's request, obtaining new Pokémon to use in his matches against the player at the Indigo Plateau (as all in-game Champions return to their position on the player's return to their hometown).

Trivia Edit

  • In true rival fashion, Richard chose a starter Pokémon that has a type advantage over Silus' own starter.
  • Similar to Blue, he is the son of a local professor.
  • Richard can be seen as a mirror to Amelia, being the more crass rival in Silus' fold.
  • Richard is the first member of the main cast, as well as to have appeared in Advance Frontier, to own a Pokémon from the Kalos region. This was done to commemorate the launch of Pokémon X and Y the following day.
