Blue is a Pokémon character that originally appeared in the First Generation video games as the rival of the player character, Red. Different incarnations of Blue also appear in Pokémon manga series, and the anime character Gary Oak is based on him.
In Japan, Blue is generally known as "Green," which may be the more common name for the character in certain corners of the fandom. Japanese manga usually refer to the character as "Green" while English translations change it to "Blue." This can cause confusion especially for manga such as Pokémon Adventures, which also features a female character called "Blue" in Japanese manga and "Green" in translations.

The fandom for the Pokémon Adventures (a.k.a. Pokémon Special) manga tends to refer to characters by their original Japanese names, so this character is usually known as Special!Green. This incarnation of the character is "often regarded as the most ikemen ['Hot guy'] out of all the Greens [Blues]".
[ Gary Oak in the anime as well as The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga and "Shigeru" in Pokémon Zensho. Pocket Monsters version is "Green". "Blue" from the Pocket Monsters manga may be very loosely based on Gameverse Blue?]
