Ever since the original Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue games released in North America for the classic Nintendo Game Boy in 1996 the popularity of Pokémon has continued to grow along with its ever-growing collection of iconic creatures. While the core games in the series focus primarily on catching, training, and battling your choice of Pokémon, a number of spin-offs have expanded the Pokémon universe with puzzle, fighting, action, and other game types. With so many Pokémon games available, it is well worth taking the time to research which titles cater to your skill level, preferred type of gameplay, and contain your favorite species of Pokémon before you buy.
