Pokemon defined a generation. Collecting tiny monsters and fighting them was many kids’ first foray into video games, and the series has not lost its appeal in later years. Though Pokemon have increased in number since their original 151, the core gameplay stays true—as a new Pokemon trainer, you collect a variety of little monsters to accompany you and defend you along the path to becoming a Pokemon master.

The game is into its sixth generation now, with Pokemon X and Y as well as Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire—remakes of the popular third-generation Ruby and Sapphire games. It’s one of the best-selling series of all time with over 245 million games sold, and has an accompanying anime series, card game, and several spin-off games to appeal to just about every conceivable market.

But what makes the Pokemon series stand out is its addictive gameplay, inventive world, and its dedication to sticking to what works while spicing up features with each new release. If you’re a fan of Pokemon, you’ll find something to enjoy in each new version, and if you’re new to the game, there are a plethora of platforms and opportunities to try out.
