Pokemon Games

The endless story of Pokemon began back in 1996 in Japan, with the release of Pokemon Red and Green for the Nintendo Gameboy. It wasn't long before the United States and Europe got in on the new craze, but with the titles Pokemon Red and Blue.

It wasn't long after that the franchise released a tag-along game of Pokemon Yellow, a game that relates more and was similiar to anime series. In this game, you are actually followed around by a Pikachu outside of its PokeBall, just like Ash Ketchum in his adventures on the television. Soon after, Pokemon released a set of games for the Nintendo 64 Gaming System: Pokemon Snap and Pokemon Stadium. Pokemon Snap allowed you to take pictures of the First Generation Pokemon, and Pokemon Stadium brought the life of Pokemon Red and Blue to the third-dimension.

A few years after the first generation games came none other than the second generation, along with a number of of new games. Pokemon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, as well as a sequel to Pokemon Stadium and a number of lesser known games, came to life, where a trainer could experience both the Johto and Kanto Regions of the Pokemon Universe. And in color on the Gameboy Color, too!

Soon after, approximately a few years later, Nintendo released the newest handheld system known as the Gameboy Advance, as well as the Gamecube System to overtake the Nintendo 64. Pokemon took advantage of the situation, and released the next generation of Pokemon to world in the games Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald for the Gameboy Advance, and Pokemon Colosseum and Gale of Darkness for the Gamecube. These games helped continue to rise in sales and profits for the company, and Pokemon, thinking the time was right, released a remake on the Original Generation under the titles Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf Green.

A number of years passed after this, and as Pokemon lived more through the Anime Series and spinoff games like Super Smash Bros, Nintendo developed the next handheld tenchology for the day: the Nintendo DS. And with this newest console came the next generation of Pokemon Games - Are you seeing the pattern yet? Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum gave new life to franchise, and were successful enough on the market for the company to release a set of remakes for the Second Generation Games, under the titles of Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver.

Unlike the prior decade of the company, the fifth generation games came without an update to Nintendo Handheld Systems, but instead sticking with the Nintendo DS. Pokemon Black and White, and later sequels Pokemon Black 2 and White 2, brought some of the greatest storylines the franchise had ever released (and the sales showed). The Pokemon Company released a number of smaller titles with these games, including a few more Mystery Dungeon Games, but the life-long fans didn't get the Third Generation Remakes that they were hoping for. The recent pattern of remake releases gave all of us hope, but we would have to wait another generation before we would get our wish.

A few more years passed as the success of the company stayed high, and after Nintendo released the Nintendo 3DS, much like a Pokemon, the company evolved with yet another generation of monster in Pokemon X and Y. It was the lowest number of Pokemon ever released for a generation - totaling under eighty Pokemon - but the company incorporated a new idea of Mega and Primal Evolutions (Primal Reversion), where a number of Pokemon received an additional evolution of exordinary strength. And about a year after the release of these games, the committed fans of the franchise received the gift they had been waiting a number of years for in the remakes of the Third Generation Games. Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire continued with the theme of Mega Evolutions, as a new chapter was introduced to the original sotryline of these games.

And now, as Pokemon releases newer titles of spinoff games such as Pokemon GO and Pokken Tournament, the Pokemon Fans await the next set of the mainstream games. Pokemon Z or XYZ is looking more likely as the days pass, as well as a possible remake of Pokemon Emerald under the name of Pokemon Delta Emerald; however, these games may never come to be. Another generation has also been talked about for years now where the way of tradition might meet the new way of Pokemon, but until those days, the company has given the PokeWorld a worldwide re-release of Pokemon Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow on the 3DS.
