Pokémon Blue Version

– Game Boy


Publisher:Nintendo
Developer:Game Freak
Genre:Role-playing game

Become the greatest Pokémon trainer in the world in the games that started it all! Start your Pokémon Game Boy adventure by choosing a Pokémon at the home of the great Professor Oak. Now the journey can begin: your mission is to collect all 150 Pokémon in the Pokémon world, using your own Pokémon to battle others. Along the way, several skilled trainers, such as your infamous rival Blue and many minor trainers, will challenge you to Pokémon duels. You can't back down, so be ready for anything.

Remember, Pokémon are not ordinary creatures. To fill your Pokédex, you'll need to train Pokémon so they evolve. For instance, a captured Caterpie will evolve into a Metapod, which will then evolve into a Butterfree. Each evolution adds more power to the Pokémon - giving you more power to defeat and capture other Pokémon. Also keep in mind that some Pokémon are rare and won't be found in your game. Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue each carry their own variety of Pokémon to defeat, collect, and train. To get all 150, trade Pokémon with your friends.
