Pokémon Blue

Pokémon Blue

1999 Video Games
Ages: 6 & Up
Manufacturer: Nintendo of America
Price: $29.95
This strategy/role-playing game involves an intricate story line that unfolds as players find, collect, train and then battle over 150 different types of Pokémon creatures as they work towards becoming the world's greatest Pokémon trainer. This was the video game that started the worldwide Pokémon phenomenon, which has spun off into a top-rated animated TV series, motion picture, books, toys and countless other products.

The game involves battling the many different Pokémon creatures, but they never die or stay injured. Instead, they become weak and faint, only to be revived to perfect health minutes later. The game involves no blood, guts or gore. It does encourage thinking. Pokémon offers a collectibility element young people enjoy.
