Pokémon, a franchise that started with a game, then grew rapidly. There are several different mediums of which you can enjoy the franchise. There is a Card Game, several generations of video games, a long running TV series, several movies, and the list goes on from there.
What really got me into the franchise was when my cousin brought over a copy of Pokémon Red version for the original Gameboy. Heck, that was back when I was 9. I even was experimenting and deleted his save file with a bunch of level 100 Pokémon.
Soon after, I got a copy of Pokémon Stadium myself and played my own copy of Pokémon Yellow on the TV screen. And yes, I didn't own a Gameboy so when I purchased a copy of the second-generation title Pokémon Gold I couldn't play it right away, my cousin let me use his Gameboy to just play the game. Thing is, I had to sit in the corner of my room where the electric outlet was, because the device wouldn't keep charge.
Thank you, Game Freak, and Nintendo, for making an awesome franchise that I will never forget, or even stop buying games from. For over 8 generations now and the games are still going strong. I can never get enough.
Overall Expectations were met, and I never cease to enjoy these games.
10 out of 10, for so much content, and an enjoyable experience.
