Cross-canon counterpart

As a franchise with so many different forms of canon, Pokémon is famous for having multiple iterations of the same or similar characters, most of which have basis in the {{pkmn|games}}' {{player|main}} and [[rival]] characters. The characters in each form of the Pokémon canon which are closely related in their design will most often be recognizable in any of their forms, and may have similar relations to other characters with or without counterparts.
For example, both {{ga|Red}} and {{Ash}} are from [[Pallet Town]], live with their mother, receive a [[starter Pokémon]] from [[Professor Oak]], and begin their journey one step behind their rivals, {{ga|Blue}} and {{Gary}} respectively. However, Red and Ash do not coexist, nor do Blue and Gary, as they are restricted to their specific canons.
