pokemon_logoPokémon started with Nintendo and Satoshi Tajiri in 1996, the popular franchise known as Pocket Monsters released on the original Game Boy platform and has spanned multiple incarnations over Nintendo platforms for over a decade, the franchise has also run with a popular animated series which helped spiral the games and trading card game into massive popularity with fans.

Key features of Pokémon include an ever growing population of Pokémon species within the game, currently with over 700 known types within the game / story universe. In the game series, players battle gym leaders and collect rare Pokémon to develop their team and Pokédex for the most complete experience possible. The general design of the game allows players to create the teams they want and enjoy vs only having an eventual singular master deck across all experiences to complete the story.

The latest release for Pokémon was X and Y which released in Fall 2013, the release marked the first portable transition into a functional 3D era for the brand while using the 3DS platform to power the experience.
