    Have you ever played a game called Pokemon?  It is a Nintendo-franchised RPG(role-playing game) series owned by Game Freak with species of creatures known as Pokemon.  In the Pokemon world, there 700+ Pokemon that you can find, catch, and battle with.  There are Pokemon types(18 of them) so you can find advantages and disadvantages.  The main phrase of the series(Gotta Catch 'Em All) sounds sort of impossible, but if you can do it, then congradulations, you're truly a Pokemon Master.

Types of Pokemon and a Few Examples
    In game, as I said there are 18 Pokemon types.  They are:

  • Normal
  • Fire (Starter)
  • Water (Starter)
  • Grass (Starter) Omanyte
  • Bug
  • Dragon
  • Ice
  • RockSnorunt
  • Electric
  • Flying
  • Ground
  • Steel (Generation 2)
  • Fighting
  • Psychic
  • Dark (Generation 2)
  • Ghost
  • PoisonGastly
  • Fairy (Generation 6)
    There are also Pokemon with two types, known as dual-typed Pokemon.  Finding advantages can help you out in hard battles.

Regions and Games
    There are a total of six generations in the series, each with different regions and games.  The regions and games are:
  • Kanto (Generation 1), Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Introduced: Pokemon
  • Johto (Generation 2), Gold, Silver, Crystal, Introduced: Berries
  • Hoenn (Generation 3), Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed, LeafGreen, Introduced: Double Battles
  • Sinnoh (Generation 4), Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heart Gold, Soul Silver, Introduced: PokeRadar
  • Unova (Generation 5), Black, White, Black 2, White 2 Introduced: Triple Battles
  • Kalos (Generation 6), X, Y, Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, Introduced: Mega Evolutions

    Plus, in each region, you can choose one of the three starter Pokemon at the beginning of the game.  Your rival will pick the one with a type advantage.

In each region, one person will want to keep battling with you over and over again.  This character is your rival and they will vary with each region. (Gender dependent followed by parentheses)

  • Kanto: Blue, Gary
  • Johto: Silver
  • Hoenn: Wally, May(Male), Brendan(Female)
  • Sinnoh: Barry
  • Unova: Bianca, Cheren, Hugh
  • Kalos: Calem(Female), Serena(Male), Tierno, Shauna, Trevor
Starter Pokemon
At the beginning of every Pokemon journey, you will be given a chance to pick a Pokemon to start off your journey with.  This is called a starter Pokemon, and they vary depending on the region.
