His name is Green...
And he is really awesome in the manga! He is much less of a jerk and more like the perfect rival for red and also a friend.
Is GREEN, not BLUE...
You have 8 badges in Kanto ? I have 10 of them.
If you ever have any confusion about who is who in the manga (at least the main characters up to gen 4) check their eye color. It matches the version they represent and their names. You'll have to use manga art though, a lot of the characters on the AP page for this manga use counterparts from the various anime.
This picture of Green (Blue is the girl) is from the OVA Pokemon Origins, Misty uses her anime picture etc... I'd consider them different characters for several reasons as they are basically different canons entirely, epsecially since characters like Sapphire have different parents from their anime counterparts as well as different ages and teams.
Alas AP does not, it is what it is.
The only reason the US calls the rival character Blue is because Blue was the international version of Green version (bug and sprite fixes I believe), Green never was released otuside of Japan. Thats also why the remakes are Leafgreen and Firered, as a throwback to the original 2 games.
I think that's because the original games in Japan were Red and Green. In the western countries Red and Blue were 'remakes' of Red and Green.
I found it weird at first too, but taking that fact in consideration makes perfect sense.
