though the show and merchandise are very popular...
the most important part is the game itself!
The game's goal is to try to become a Pokemon
Master and try to catch all 150! However,
all 150 Pokemon are not all in one version.
order to get all 150 you need to trade with
someone who has the Blue version if you have
the Red and vice versa. Even though that is
the main goal, there are other goals you can
set for yourself.
of these include specify in training a specific
type of Pokemon, trying to build a "perfect
team", and trying to beef up your Pokemon
by getting them to level 100 (the highest
they could go) and filling them with vitamins.
