So why are the main trainers named after colors anyway?

For the most part that is. Like wtf? Who'd name their kid Red or Green or Pink or Purple? That's stupid. Even a generic name like Bib would be better.

As of Gen 3 everyone has a real name except for Red and Blue. Edit: Silver too I think.

And colour names are just placeholder names sort of. The trainers are supposed to be named after you.

My aunts name is Red so....
I wish Blastoise was my dad. He wouldn't beat my mom like what her boyfriend, Johnny does. If Blastoise was my dad things would be different around here.

I read this Fanfic crossover of Pokemon and Code Geass once. In it, Red was actually a prince of Britannia.

The whole time I was hoping they'd out his name as Ethelred, but it turned out to be Ashford. Mfw:

I thought the color names were more of a title than anything.
Not so much as a name...
