History of Pokémon Games
Pokemon was one of the biggest video game hits of the 90’s. It has been the subject of not just games, but also of TV shows, movies, toys, and all kinds of fan items. Now, more than 20 years since it first made it to the Nintendo Game Boy, the fever is still very much alive and well. In fact, the Pokémon universe is still expanding (and might have a new expansion coming soon!). Let’s take a closer look at the history of this saga, including the timeline of games released over the past 2 decades.
The first Pokemon game was released in Japan on 1996. It was published by Nintendo and developed by Game Freak. A role-playing game, it has made a name for itself for the myriad of ways to finish missions, the amount of exploration you need to do, the fact that you can battle other players and their Pokémon collections, and the sheer number of monsters (which essentially translates to “pocket monsters” you can catch. This game was widely credited for spawning the trend of video games and shows that involves collecting (and battling with) different kinds of monsters.
There are multiple titles that were released under the popular brand. These are most commonly divided into “generations”. Each generation has new characters, new game modes and functions, and of course, new monsters added to the list. So with each generation, the number of monsters you can acquire increases.
Here are the current generations of Pokemon games:
First – This generation is the original batch. It was released in 1996, with the games released for the original Game Boy and Game Boy Color. The original concepts of capturing, trading, and training monsters for battle against both computer and human opponents were developed here. The original 151 Pokemons were introduced here. These proved to be a massive success, and laid the groundwork for future titles.
Second – The second generation of Pokemon games was released in 1999 called the Silver and Gold versions for the Game Boy Color. 100 new monsters were introduced, and a day / night system that affects gameplay was introduced.
Third – The third-generation titles came out in 2002 with the release of Ruby and Sapphire versions for the Game Boy Advance. 135 new creatures were added to the list, graphics was improved, and other gameplay modifications were done.
Fourth – The fourth-generation came out in 2006 with the release of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl for the Nintendo DS. 107 new monsters were introduced, and this generation was the first titles to use 3D graphics.
Fifth – The fifth-generation Pokemon games came about in 2010 with the release of Black and White versions for the Nintendo DS. New battle modes were introduced and 156 new creatures were added to the list.
Sixth – 2013 marked the release of the sixth-generation of titles with the release of the paired games X and Y for the Nintendo 3DS. 72 new monsters were added, more game modes were introduced, and full 3D graphics is now being used.
Seventh – The current generation of Pokemon titles came out in 2016 with the release of the Sun and Moon versions for the Nintendo 3DS. 84 new monsters were introduced together with other gameplay modifications. 7th generation games are backwards-compatible with other titles of the saga for the 3DS.
With each passing generation, the legend continues to grow. And while some may think that the fad is no more, this is far from the truth. Currently, there are more than 300 million copies of Pokemon games sold worldwide, making it the second-best selling video game series of all time, next to Super Mario. And there’s no stopping the juggernaut, as the eighth generation of this legendary series has been announced for release in 2019, much to the delight of video game fans worldwide.
