Red x Erika was originally a rival pairing to Red x Misty in the Pokemon Special "Adventures" Manga. The two first met when Erika demanded that Red receive an apology in Chapter 19. Erika then tested Red by having him catch Eevee & trying to see how he would act when fighting villains. Erika was shown to have strong feelings for Red during chapter 46 after he went missing. The last notable moment of this pairing is when Red saves Erika & the other gym leaders in the Magnet Train before it crashes.
