Pokémon has been a fan favorite game ever since its first installment in 1996 (1998 for English versions). Pokémon Red and Green ('98 versions Red and Blue) set the stage for the popular franchise and since then, the game has only gotten bigger. With every new generation of games, there have been more Pokémon added to the roster (Gen. I - 151, Gen. VI - 721!). But not only has the franchise grown in numbers, the gameplay has also progressed. Each generation of games featured new and altered game functions, from giving your Pokémon an item to hold to participating in a Pokéathlon event and having sky battles.
