What are pocket monsters?

Pokémon, short for "pocket monsters," is a franchise that began as a video game in Japan in 1996. Developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo, the game quickly gained popularity and was later adapted into an anime television series, movies, trading card games, and other merchandise.

The basic premise of Pokémon is that players catch, train, and battle creatures called Pokémon, which come in a variety of types and have unique abilities. The original games, Pokémon Red and Green, were released for the Game Boy in Japan in 1996, and the series quickly expanded to include other regions, such as Johto and Hoenn.

The popularity of the game led to the creation of a TV series, which debuted in Japan in 1997 and quickly spread to other countries. The series followed the adventures of a young trainer named Ash Ketchum, who sets out to become the world's greatest Pokémon master. Along the way, he meets a variety of other trainers and Pokémon and faces off against various challenges and villains.

In addition to the TV series, Pokémon also spawned a successful line of trading card games. The cards, which feature images of different Pokémon, can be used to play a strategic game that involves battling and collecting different creatures. The trading card game has been a popular hobby among fans for years and continues to be played today.

The popularity of Pokémon also led to the creation of a number of movies and spin-off games. In 1998, the first Pokémon movie, "Mewtwo Strikes Back," was released in Japan and later in the United States. The movie was a huge success and paved the way for a number of sequels and spin-offs, including "Detective Pikachu," which was released in 2019.

Over the years, the Pokémon franchise has continued to grow and evolve. New games have been released for the Nintendo Switch, including "Pokémon Sword" and "Pokémon Shield," which feature new regions and Pokémon. The anime series has also continued, with new seasons and storylines being introduced.

In addition to the games and TV shows, Pokémon has also had a significant impact on popular culture. The franchise has been referenced in numerous TV shows and movies, and has inspired countless works of fan art and fan fiction. The popularity of Pokémon has also led to the creation of theme parks and other attractions, such as the Pokémon Center in Tokyo, which features exclusive merchandise and events.

Quiz WriterCharlie, Heywise Staff

Charlie took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say; they found themselves immersed in literature from before they were born. They've been known to tell their friends how they can still remember the passages their parents read to them when they were in utero - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Charlie keeps their feet wet, whether they're whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on their second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name they refuse to disclose). You’re sure to get a kick out of giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.

We're Lucky to Have a Yellow Pikachu!

Pikachu, the lovable and iconic Pokémon, was almost never seen by the world. Pikachu was originally intended to be a red and white creature, however, due to a programming error, Pikachu's design was changed to yellow and black. The change was so well received by the developers that they decided to keep it, and Pikachu went on to become the face of the Pokémon franchise. It's hard to imagine what the world of Pokémon would look like without Pikachu's bright and cheerful demeanor, but thanks to a happy accident, we now have one of the most beloved and recognizable characters in all of gaming.
