Pikachu, one of the most popular Pokémon

Pokémon (often just spelled as Pokemon) is the name of a popular Nintendo franchise. The series was created in 1995 by Satoshi Tajiri, while the first Pokémon video games, Pokémon Red and Blue, were released on October 15, 1996 for the Game Boy in Japan. The series enjoyed high success and immense popularity with gamers worldwide as soon as it was released in North America; because of this popularity, the two games were merchandized into anime, manga, trading cards, toys, books, clothing, and other forms of media. A remake of Pokémon Red and Blue was then released, called Pokémon Yellow, which was yet another successful title.

The second generation of Pokémon started with Pokémon Gold and Silver, released on November 21, 1999 in Japan for the Game Boy Color, and its remake released soon after, called Pokémon Crystal. These three titles were highly anticipated and like their predecessors, became huge titles. The third generation of Pokémon began with Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, released on November 22, 2002 in Japan, and also enjoyed high amounts of success along with their remake Pokémon Emerald. The fourth generation of Pokémon began with Pokémon Diamond and Pearl followed by Platinum (which was released in North America on April 22, 2007 for Nintendo's successful Nintendo DS handheld system, and was released earlier in Japan). A number of spin-offs and smaller titles in the Pokémon series have been released, such as Pokémon Stadium, for the various Nintendo consoles and correlating with that generation and its time period. The series is still very successful in almost all forms of media.
