The worldwide phenomenon Pokemon began as a simple idea by Satoshi Tajiri. Taking inspiration from Game Boy and fueled by a passion for video games and Ultra Seven, a Japanese animated TV series, Satoshi invented Capsule Monsters, a video game where players tamed wild monsters into following them and housing them in capsules (the predecessors of Pokeballs). Nintendo funded his project and he later changed the name to Pocket Monsters due to trademark issues.
The Pocket Monsters Red and Green versions were released in Japan on February 27, 1996, featuring 151 characters which players caught, trained and traded. Pocket Monsters Blue was released later featuring improved gameplay. The game was introduced in the international market along with trading card games, toys, movies, series, a clothing line and more.
In Pokemon, Trainers and Masters get to build their team of monsters and battle it out with their opponents on various platforms. Young Trainers can begin their journey with action figures, Clip ‘N’ Carry Poke Ball Belt or the Z-Ring set to help them learn how to catch and train Pikachu and other monsters. They can then level up by collecting and playing with Trading Card Games Sun & Moon series, booster packs and Legendary Battle Deck packs.
