In Pokémon Blue, your mission is to collect all 150 Pokémon. To collect all 150, you’ll need to train each captured Pokémon. Once they evolve, each Pokémon gains power, which can be used to defeat and capture other Pokémon. Along the way, several skilled trainers will challenge you to Pokémon duels. To win the game, you must defeat them all. Keep in mind that some Pokémon are rare and won’t be found in your game. To get all 150, trade Pokémon with your friends using the Game Boy Link Cable, which allows the transfer of Pokémon between Game Paks.


Welcome to the world of Pokémon, one filled with wild Pokémon and the people who attempt to tame them. You are Ash Ketchum, a boy on a quest to become the best Pokémon trainer in the world. Professor Oak, the leading authority on Pokémon, has given you your choice of three tame Pokémon in exchange for your helping him catalog and document every Pokémon in the world. But to catalog a Pokémon, you have to capture it by first beating it up with one of your trained Pokémon, and then hitting it with an empty Poké Ball. As your tame Pokémon gain experience in battle, their abilities improve and they earn access to new attacks. Sometimes they even evolve into more advanced Pokémon. Aside from capturing wild Pokémon and evolving your own, you can catalog new Pokémon by trading with another Pokémon player using either a link cable or the Game Boy Color’s infrared system. Pokémon gained through trades learn and evolve faster, and trading is the only way to capture all 151 Pokémon, since each Pokémon game (Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, andPokémon Yellow) has certain Pokémon missing. Of course, as a Pokémon trainer, you’ve “gotta catch ’em all!”–150 to be exact. So if you own Blue and want to have a complete set of Pokémon, you must find a friendly Red or Yellow owner and arrange a trade.Pokémon Blue is packed with interesting characters, an ingenious story hook, intriguing strategy, and of course plenty of cute Pokemon and it’s easy to see how it started the Pokémania that is sweeping the world. –Michael FehlauerPros:Gameplay and strategy that’s fun for all agesFantastic replay valueBrilliant game design encourages players to meet and tradeCons:Hours of looking at the Game Boy’s little screen may hurt neckOnly 1 saved game per cartridge–2 people can’t share a single gameNo difference between Red and Blue except for distribution of Pokémon


A unique mixture of Final Fantasy, Tamagotchi, and rock-paper-scissors gameplay with the collectible edge of Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon is an excellent RPG for players of all experience levels. You lead a lone adventurer out on his Pokemon journey, a quest to become the champion of the Pokemon League. Before our hero can even enter the Pokemon League, he must win eight badges from the Pokemon gyms scattered around the world. Things are never quite that easy, however, as you will come toe-to-toe with the evil Team Rocket, in addition to a number of other predicaments, on your way to reach the gyms. An RPG at heart, you scour the globe for Pokemon and capture them with Pokeballs. Once caught, Pokemon can then be added to your party and trained a la standard RPG characters. As they develop, the Pokemon will become stronger and learn new abilities. Many will evolve into a different Pokemon once they reach a certain level or if you use a special item on them. The game’s variety and customization is virtually unlimited, making no two run-throughs of the game the same. You can carry up to six Pokemon with you at a time. In battle, only one of the beasts may be deployed, but monsters can be swapped at any time. The strategy lies in selecting the right types of Pokemon for each battle – every Pokemon is classified as one of 15 different types of Pokemon, adding the rock-paper-scissors aspect: Fire Pokemon are weak against water attacks, flying Pokemon are strong against bug Pokemon, etc. One of Pokemon’s most unique and end
