Welcome to the World of Pokémon!
What is Pokémon?Pokémon (or Pocket Monsters) is a video game and multimedia franchise created in 1996 by Satoshi Tajiri. Since then it has become the largest grossing multimedia franchise of all time, with loads of video games, manga, movies and merchandise, as well as a TCG and anime! There was even a musical which sadly flopped in the early 2000s called Pokémon Live (more on this later!), which holds a very special place in my heart.
Mainline Pokémon GamesThe mainline Pokémon video game series is currently in its 8th generation, with Gen 9 having been recently announced and releasing on November 18th, 2022. Here are some pages about each generation and the games that they're made up of.
