Pokémon Tricolor is the accompanying story of Lethargic’s Generation I. The main themes are growth and overcoming low expectations.


Main Characters

  • Leo Maxwell: A young teenaged boy from New Celadon City who is called to Pallet Town to be one of the three lucky kids who receives a PokéDex. He’s headstrong and immature, but has a good heart. He ends up being the "unlucky" trainer of the trio who is stuck with Bulbasaur, who is known to be a bad omen for new Dex Holding trainers. He can’t seem to win a battle.
  • Anna Hawthorne: An intelligent and perhaps uptight girl who ends up arriving first and getting the first choice in starter: a Charmander. She’s Leo’s main rival and an occasional traveling companion.
  • Adrian Fulbright: A teenage boy who has a complex about how utterly average he is. He wishes to be as talented as Anna and takes pity in Leo’s ineptitude as a trainer. Partnered with Squirtle.


  • J: Pokémon Hunter J is the main antagonist of the series. Cold, cunning, and calculating, J merely sees the main characters as annoyances that she has no strong feelings about either way. She first appears in A Battle All My Own.


Leo Maxwell is a headstrong boy whose experience as a trainer can’t seem to get any worse; he loses every battle! Can he and his Bulbasaur overcome their "bad luck" to become a strong team?
