He just says . . . . . . . . . . all the time.

When Red is encountered in Mt. Silver during Generation II, he has no speech, merely repeating an ellipsis before beginning the battle.

This is a reference to the fact that during Generation I he is a silent protagonist, answering only "yes" or "no" questions. He also remains silent when confronted in Generation IV.

This is what Bulbapedia says. It could also just be dramatic effect, being one of the strongest NPCs in the franchise, if not the strongest.


Note: In FireRed and LeafGreen, Blue sarcastically calls him a chatty gossip.
