Silly question right, Lance is an Elite Four Champion with a couple of fast and powerful dragons. What could little old Red do ??? Maybe the reason Red is so strong is because he is you....He is suppose you at your best. Well, not the person sitting in front of the screen reading this. Red is your struggle, he the boy you made into a champion. They say we are our worst enemies, if thats true Red is just waiting there for us to fail. Or Im way off and Red is just Ash and he is more focused..
As Cherries put it.
