Background History

As we all know Pokemon has been around for about 21 years now and last years was it's 20th anniversary. There are many games in the series starting off when we journeyed to the Kanto region in 1998 which was Pokemon Red, Blue or Yellow and picked either Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle. After that came the next generation which took us Johto in 2000 which introduced Gold and Silver and picked either Chikorita, Cyndaquil or Totodile. Next, we journeyed to the Hoenn Region in 2002 which was Pokemon Ruby, Saphire, and Emerald and picked either Treeko, Torchic or Mudkip. Later on in the series came Generation 4 which took us to the Sinnoh region in 2007 which was Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum and picked Turtwig, Chimchar or Piplup. After that, we went to the Unova Region in 2011 which was Black, White, and 2012 for Black 2 and White 2 and we picked either Snivy, Tepig or Oshowatt. We then went to the Kalos region in 2013 which was X and Y were we were able to choose from Chespin, Fenniken or Frokie. And Finally, we are at the Alola region in 2016 with the newest generation which has expanded the Pokemon count and has come with new and beautiful graphics.
The idea Pokemon which is actually called Pocket Monsters in Japan came from way back in 1989 to 1990 when the Gameboy was first released. The first thought of it was that you were a trainer wanting to complete your Pokedex and as you complete it your Pokemon would grow stronger and with the selected Pokemon you chose to raise you would then fight with other trainers. The stronger you got the closer you were to going to the Pokemon league and becoming the champion of the region. Ideas expanded and the idea of poke balls which are capsules to capture these creatures and the new starting 151 Pokemon. Gyms, evil organization, elite 4, story all add up to make the first Pokemon game. As the game came out and got more popular so did spin-off games anime card games and more came out. The first every copy was red, blue and green sold 23.64 million copies. As time went on so did the games evolving in graphics, stories and of course Pokemon with now having a whopping 802 Pokemon in total. Not including Mega evolutions and Alolan forms.
