Pokemon: Red and Pokemon: Green were RPGs that were the start of the Pokemon franchise back in 1995. Later, Pokemon: Blue came out. It sold millions of copies worldwide, and it is known that the first version of the game was not released outside of Japan.
The whole game is battling your Pokemon to gain experience points. You fight Gym Leaders to earn Gym Badges towards the Pokemon League. You battle trainers and your rival along the way.
You are a Pokemon trainer who starts out with either a Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle. Then, you embark on a journey collecting Gym Badges, defeating Team Rocket, and battling alongside your Pokemon. Your main goal is to get to the Pokemon Leauge and defeat the Champion. (This is the basic course of every main Pokemongame.)
- The first version of the game wasn't released outside of Japan.
- The game was rumored to be originally called "Capsule Monsters."
- Its Japanese name is "Pocket Monsters."
- In Green Version, Lavender Town is rumored to have music that caused children to go insane. This may be why the first versions weren't released outside of Japan.
