Blaine first appeared in the Generation I games as the Cinnabar Island Gym Leader. Before actually getting inside Blaine's Gym however, the player must find the Secret Key to unlock the Gym's door, which is located in the Pokémon Mansion next door. His Gym was filled with quiz machines that unlocked the doors leading up to him. If the player answers incorrectly, they are forced to battle a Gym member.
In the Generation II games, the volcano on Cinnabar Island has erupted forcing Blaine to relocate to the Seafoam Islands. In the Generation III remakes, Blaine is again the Cinnabar Gym Leader, with an updated appearance.
