If you're like me, and you don't mind showing your true inner nerd, let me introduce you to Pokemon. Also known as pocket monster, The history of the Pokémon media franchise spans over two decades from when work began officially on the first game to now, and has roots even older. It started simply enough as a hobby of Satoshi Tajiri, who as a child had a fondness for catching insects and tadpoles near his home in suburban Tokyo. Over time, Tajiri decided to put his idea of catching creatures into practice, to give children the same thrills he had as a child. With over 700 Pokemon, one word to describe it would be "fecundity". To be able to create all different types of different Pokemon that are gathered from our every day seeing. With all elements from the world, they constructed brilliance fictional characters in order to make the game much more intriguing. Although, Pokemon games are usually almost similar, the adventure usually feels different.
The game usually starts up with one of the professors explaining what Pokemon are and a few brief of information. Afterward, you manage to get your first Pokemon. You'll have three options to choice from. You'll have the option to pick between fire, water, and grass. I usually always start of with fire type Pokemon. Which it in my opinion is really the best type to start of with. After selecting your first Pokemon, you then start a journey in which you will come across with different types of Pokemon. And, depending upon the game that you have, will consist of only a few Pokemon. You can however, link up with any old Pokemon game and trade them into the new game; therefore, giving you an even bigger selection of Pokemon to choose from. The whole concept of the game is to become the champion, and collecting all the Pokemon ever created. Although, spelling it out to you may seem as if the game isn't that fun. The journey and the way you come across things is really the best part.
The video above is the intro for one of my favorite Pokemon games. Pokemon Emerald, for Gameboy Advance.
If you haven't really noticed, when you try to purchase any of the Pokemon games, whether old or new, the price of the games are still pretty high. I mean the older games can cost you anywhere between $10-$20. Unless you can find someone to sell it to you cheaper.
