Default Red or Lance

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.

Red's Team of Charizard/Venusaur/Blastoise/Ash's Pikachu/Ash's Snorlax/Lapras

OR

Lance's Team of Salamence/Gyarados/Garchtomp/Alteria/Dragonite/Charizard

Looking at both of the Reds (Manga and Game), they are different. In the game, Red is different from Ash in the obvious reasons. Red doesn't say anything and their clothing. But, I find Red to be very different from Ash other than those two differences. He manages to defeat the Elite Four and become champion, then moves on to Mt. Silver, ready to defeat anyone who comes. I would be much more afraid of Red because of his more versatile team consisting of all the starters, a Lapras, a Pikachu, and a Snorlax. Whereas Lance has only Dragon-type Pokemon, which are defeated more easily by other Dragon-types and Ice-types. I think I might be going too deep in...
In conclusion, I believe that Red is stronger and would make a more dangerous enemy if he was one.

So you're choosing based on a more balanced team?

Yeah, pretty much. I mean, Dragon-types are strong, but a team that has more can defeat them by switching accordingly.

Lance. Solely because he was my first difficulty ever in Pokemon!

I have always thought of Lance being the bad ass first champion so I would have to go with him. But what about Blue? I think his team is my favorite out of the more difficult trainers.

But Lance is the head of the Elite Four. Which means that he had to prove himself to earn that spot through many tough battles. Red went through once and won, I dont see that reflecting poorly on Lance. The way the game is set up, you are led to believe tons of people go through there. Lance is testing people.

I've loved Lance from the beginning. Yeah, Red is pretty awesome, but you find him alone...on top of a mountain...Lance is facing trainers (and most likely beating them), every day.

I have to agree with you. A balanced team has been always a tip to avoid the whole team being in disadvantage of a specific type of move. In case of Lance, though having strong dragon Pokemons, ice defeat most of his Pokemons.

Red is more challenging, but I like Lance's charismatic personality both in-game and in the anime.

Definitely Red. Lance is cool and all, but I had the most fun battling Red than I have any other trainer ever since battling the Battle Frontier Brains in R/S/E!

Red is meant to be the strongest trainer. He has a very balanced team of threats. Most other trainers lock themselves into one type and use relatively weak pokemon. Red also makes sure he is located in a place that only a true trainer can get to. He wants to weed out the weak by locating himself at the top of a treacherous mountain. Not to mention he already defeated Lance. He is the true test of a trainer in Johto, not Lance, despite Lance being the regions Champion
