No, I had the Versus Books guide which unfortunately didn't have a pokedex.
That guide didn't spoil Red at all. It just said there's a big surprise waiting at the end of the dungeon with a good luck after it
I know cuz I had that guide. The one with the complete pokedex probably spoiled it
When I get home I will take a picture and post it. His team is there in the Mt Silver section. --- "Everyone step back. Me and this Jigglypuff are going to tangle and I don't want anyone getting hurt."

My mind was totally obliterated. I was 10 when I got to Mt. Silver, and the second I talked to Red's sprite and saw "...." And heard the battle music I was like:
"HOLY JESUS THIS IS ASH KETCHUM."

Nope. I'm all over spoilers as soon as I can find them. That, and I didn't get Silver for a while so I was still playing Blue until about the time Crystal was released.

It was. Funny thing, I didn't actually fight or know about him until years later when my friend let me borrow his crystal version so that I could get him passed Snorlax. You see I never actually beat my original gold version because I didn't know where waterfall was. --- Ridley: *Adjusts monocole* Why, I've become civilized, my dear Samantha!

I'm more surprised that Red/Ash became a hermit. --- Uchuu ni yume wo... hoshi ni negai wo... "Yasui! Takai ga, yasui!!"

No, because the Internet told me that "Ash is the last boss!". --- "Murder of the living is tragic, but murder of the idea is unforgivable." - Janus, speaker of the synod

I wonder if Gamefreak will do something like that for Pokemon X/Y. They do have the chance to do so, with the worldwide release it would be really hard to be spoiled on something like that. (There are always leaks of course.) --- Black 2 : [Marvin] [FC: 0777 2092 3156]

It was so long ago since playing my original Silver for the first time... Can't remember if I knew or not. I do remember being excited that you got to face the main character/champion of RBY though. --- SS FC: 3653-5956-7380 White FC: 0346-8581-1315
