What is Pokemon?
Pokemon is a franchise run by The Pokemon Company, which is a group of companies and includes Nintendo, Game Freak and Creatures. Although the Franchise is owned by these three firms the copyright is owned solely by Nintendo.
It began life as a video game for the popular handheld Nintendo Gameboy in 1996. The game centred around creatures known as Pokemon and humans or Pokemon Trainers would capture and train these creatures to do battle in an arena.
The series reached peak popularity with the introduction of Pokemon The Animated Series which followed the adventures of Ash and Pikachu, as Ash Ketchum was determined to catch them all and become the best Pokemon Trainer in the world.
There is an accompanying collectable card game (CCG) where you collect card and build a deck to battle opponents. The objective of the game is to knock out your opponents Pokemon and reduce your prize cards to zero. The game has increased in Popularity and has more than 5 generations including the more recent XY series.
