Pokemon was founded in 1996 by Satoshi Tajiri and Nintendo. The name Pokemon is the romanized, or
romanji version of it's full name, Pocket Monsters (ポケットモンスター Poketto Monsutā). The first generation of pokemon games, Pokemon Red and Green, were released in Japan in February 1996 for the Gameboy. These games however, had many flaws, so a 3rd addition, blue, was added in October. In September 1998, North America received Red and Blue, which were actually the original Red and Green mixed with Blue to fix some of the problems. At the some time, the Pokemon Anime began in April 1997. The anime as most of you probably know, follows Ash Ketchum around the world with friend (he should have stayed with Misty dangit!!!) with his loyal companion Pikachu. I even remember seeing that very first episode, Ash saving Pikachu, stealing Misty's bike (which he never returned!!). This caused the creation of Pokemon Yellow version. It released in Japan in September 1998, and in America in October 1999. I have Yellow, a favorite of mine actually, but i didn't get it until a few years ago from ebay!

So that's it for this edition! I had to start out with the history lesson for this one, but next time, i'll talk about Gen 3 and then jump straight into the story! I will always be giving premise to each of these, and talking about stuff. I'm going to extend the time on the poll. This post could be considered wither a back story or a review, but i'd put it under history of me. So....vote, comment, +1, write in, all that good stuff. Also, do you like this blog? Please share the url with your friends! I'm new to this whole thing, so if you know any sharing tools you would like me to add in the sidebar or bottom of the page, please tell me! Also, what do you think of the format as it is? To many buttons? Not enough? Do you like the color scheme or not? Give me some input! After last night, i really sort of lost hope and felt down, but for you few that still read me, i got up and wrote what i promised! Talk to you all tomorrow hopefully with Medi and Minori's bios!
