There is no doubt about it; Pocket Monsters have changed many lives over the years. And they’re still going. Ever since its debut in 1996 Pokemon have been finding (and fighting) their way into our homes and into our hearts.

No matter how many times you’ve beaten the final gym it’s always refreshing to pick up an old Game Boy (or even a cell phone these days) and start a new game. Reading the reassuring words of Professor Oak and starting a quest to help him out is always a blast from the past. Starting with just one Pokemon of your choice and catching your very first Magikarp are memories to cherish for a lifetime.
Or better yet finding that your favorite episode of the Pokemon Anime is replaying and actually having the time to sit down and get lost in the wild with Ash and his friends.

Another thing that remains true is that it’s near impossible to remember all the names of each and every Pokemon (not to mention their types, moves, and weaknesses). This is especially true when they’re constantly adding more and more to each version. Did you know that there are well over 800 Pokemon now?!
