to the Pokemon TimeLine. The article done by me, Mike "Thundachu"
Harden. Today I am looking at the release of the Pokemon Video Games. This
includes ones in the Present, Past and Future. Now without any further or
do, my article!
Red- Pokemon Red was the first Pokemon Video Game by Nintendo to be
released. It contained 11 out of the 151 pokemon. All 11 were basic pokemon.
The other pokemon you had to get from evolutions or Special Events. In this
game many people began having troubles in the beginning. Nintendo began to
get phone calls and emails about people's games freezing. This is when
Nintendo realized that there was a GLitcH in the game. This GLitcH was a
mysterious pokemon named Missingno. The picture of this pokemon was just a
blur and it had the number #000. It got the name Missing Number(no) If you
catch this pokemon, it will delete your saved game. If you have heard rumors
like, "If you catch Missingno your game will be deleted and you will
never ever be able to play it again and you will be abducted by aliens"
and all that jazz it is not true. All that happens is your game freezes and
your saved game MAY by deleted but not likley. The good thing, Missingno can
ONLY be caught in Pokemon Red.
Blue- This was the next game released by Nintendo. It is not available to
the public in Japan unless you went to a Special Event and got it. This game
has the 11 pokemon that you cant get in Red. To get all 150 pokemon, you
have to trade from Red and Blue. The legendary pokemon Mew is NOT available
to be caught in Red or Blue unless you have Gameshark codes. The mysterious
pokemon Missingno can not be caught in Pokemon Blue contrary to popular belief.
However Pokemon Blue still had it's problems with release to. Many people
entered a city where there was only a Pokemon Center in it and if people
saved there games it would start over. This was the erorr called Glitch
City. Nintendo corrected this erorr and removed it but Missingno still exists.
Yellow: This is one of the most annoying Video Games according to Top 50
Annoying Video Games of 1999 on VGN(people who live in Ohio and have
americast get this channel). Pokemon Yellow was # 25 on the list. The reason
for this is, you dont get to pick your own 1st Pokemon and you have Pikachu
following you around ALL the time! Even when he is kO. Alot of people
thought that Mew was in Pokemon Yellow and decided to buy it. lol. Alot of
people were disapointed when they found out, no Mew in Pokemon Yellow. A big
change from Red and Blue is that there is no erorr in Pokemon Yellow. When
Nintendo created it, everything went smooothly.
Pikachu: This was a gigapet for Pokemon. The more you shook this game the
more watts it got. Very weird game if you ask me. In this game along with
Yellow, Pikachu was the main character. Alot of schools banned this game
from premises because Pikachu in the game could play slots. Gambling.
TCG for Gboy: In my opinion this had to be the greatest game of all time. I
LOVE Pokemon TCG and I was hoping for it to get to become a game on Gameboy/Gameboy
Color and sure enough, it did. Also with this game you got a FREE Limited
Edition Meowth card with a GB symbol. This is the only way to get this card
unless you trade for it. The sad thing about this game, when it came out
Team Rocket had already been released and the game only had Base1 Jungle and
Green: Pokemon Green is what was the public release for Pokemon Blue.
Pokemon green has not been released in the United states and isnt being
planned on being released. However, you can download the ROM witch is
translated 100% english but it is illegal. Pokemon Green has no erorrs in
Smash Brothers: This game is made for the Nintendo 64 Game Console. It
includes Pikachu and Jigglypuff battling for "kingship". The
object of the game is to... smash your opponents with out them smashing you.
Smash Brothers Melle: This game contains only 1 pokemon that I know of. That
pokemon is Mewtwo. This game is WAY better than SSB1 and has new levels and
new adventures to escape to. It is made for the Nintendo GameCube.
Snap: This game is made for Nintendo64. You are Todd and you go around
taking pictures of pokemon and the more ya get the more points you get. In
this game you can also print the pictures out at Blockbuster Video and get
stickers from it. This is a MUST 0WN game! It Rules!
Stadium: This game is to battle your pokemon and get points while learning a
thing or 2 at school. Pokemon Stadium is made for the N64 Game Counsel and
is a very cool game indeed. You can even hook your GBC uptp it and use your
Pokemon RYB pokemon in the stadium.
Stadium 2: GS- In this game all 251 pokemon can be used. You can also again
hook up your GBC and use your pokemon from RBY or GS. In this game the super
secret pokemon Serebii appears. In NO Pokemon games yet has Serebii been
seen. This is a geat game.
Gold: Finally the Jhoto pokemon begin to emerge from the cracks. In this
wonderful game you can catch all 250 pokemon. However, just like the others
you have to trade from RBY and Silver to catch all of them.
Silver: The same as Gold with differnt Pokemon. Contrary to any rumors you
have heard you can catch BOTH Lugia and Ho-Oh in both games, but they will
be on different levels.
Pikachu 2:The same as Pikachu#1 but with different options. This time you
can hook it upto Pokemon Gold/Silver and generate more HP/Power and Watts.
And I still think it is a gigapet.
you Pikachu!: This game has 0wnage! You get a microphone and N64 hookup with
it! In this game the object is whatever! If you want Pikachu to go fishing,
he goes fishing! Heck, this game has to be the best N64 Pokemon game I have
ever seen! It's a must 0wn game!
Crystal: This game was a game that made people very disappointed. In the
Japanese version players could link there GBC link cables to Cell Phone and
call up a battle. When Nintendo translated the game to english, this option
was forbidden. Nintendo kind of... got our hopes up and than put them right
back down. This game was a rumor that it would be for Gameboy Advanced(Super
Gameboy in JPN) but it was officially released for Gameboy Color. However,
when this was released it could ONLY be used on GBA or GBC. All the other
GBOY games of Pokemon were able to be used on GBC,GBA,and GBOY. The
Gameboy and Gameboy Pocket option was eliminated.
Advanced: This game is for Gameboy Advance only. It contains 100 new pokemon
including Serebii. Rumors are going around that ALL 351 Pokemon will be able
to be caught without Gameshark, but I highly doubt this. Pokemon Advanced
has not been translated into English,but at the Blockbuster near me they
have Pokemon Advanced dubbed(subtitled). I only got 5 mins to play it, but
what I saw, it looked pretty cool.
Cubed: Said to be the Nintendo Game Cube version of Pokemon. Nintendo said
they have no confirmation on this game being created but they are in the
mits of discussing it. I beleive that Pokemon Cubed probably wont exsist.
E Reader: This is a program that can hook up to your Super Gameboy and play
Pokemon CCG with your own cards! Each card has a bar code and the reader
reads the card puts it into your player and you can battle!!! I am going to
get this the first day it comes out!!!!! Look for it coming in English soon!
Xtra: Guess what console this is for! Thats right Pokemon for X-Box. I have
this ROM on my computer and it isnt that good. I emailed Nintendo asking
them if this actually existed and they said they cant make a Pokemon game
for X-Box because X-Box is owned by Microsoft. So, if you have this game,
and you like it dont expeact it to come into the USA. The ROM is only 75%
Diamond: A really bad made ROM. You can download it at www.pokedavid.com. It
has alot of cussing and unkind gestures in it. I called Nintendo Pokemon and
they said the person probably hates pokemon, this is why they made it. It is
made on Microsoft Paint. It wont be released. However, the pokemon on the
box REALLY is the evolved form of Lapras called Lapronk in English. This
pokemon will be in Pokemon Advanced!
Revelation: Another illegal ROM. It is made WAy better than Diamond though.
It is the same as Pokemon Red but, it has 3 starting pokemon as Legendary
Birds Uno Dos And Tres. =/ This will never be a game.
Pokemon Lime: A sorry excuse for a Pokemon Rumor.
