Is Pokemon An Anime Or A Game?
Pokémon is actually an abbreviation of two separate words — Pocket Monsters — which was a brand of video game released in Japan in 1996 on the Game Boy system. It didn't take long for the game to really take off, by which point the creators of Pokémon saw the potential to turn one product into a multi-media franchise.
The first season of the Pokémon anime series was released in 1997, only 12 months after the initial Pocket Monsters game. The show is credited with popularising anime and other forms of Japanese entertainment throughout the Western world. In addition, there have been many successful spin-offs, which have, in turn, inspired a wider variety of Pokémon video games and Pokémon toy sets.
The Pokémon World
Never played any type of Pokémon game before? You're in for a treat. Not only are Pokémon games among the highest-selling video games of all time, but the series has spawned several other successful genres of games and Pokémon toys, including trading cards, many of which are available at Hobbyco.
Of course, to really understand Pokémon, you have to know a little about its world.
The concept of Pokémon is based on the hobby of insect collecting. The creator of Pokémon, Satoshi Tajiri, was particularly fond of this past time and could see potential in combining it with the world's burgeoning interest in video games.
Pokémon is set in its own universe, where Trainers (the game's main player) aim to capture Pokémon found in the wild by throwing a Poké Ball at them. Upon being captured, the Pokémon belongs to that Trainer and can be used in battle against other Trainers to build experience points. Pokémon can improve their speed and agility, learn new skills, and even undergo significant evolutionary transformations to build their strength.
The Pokémon universe is vast, challenging, and designed to provide the player with the opportunity to progress through events and opponents to improve their skills. The popular Pokémon trading card game (TCG) is based on the video games and the broader Pokémon universe. It is an excellent introduction to the franchise for children and adults alike.
