www.pokemon.com:
    This pair of games began the entire Pokémon revolution. While there have been major advances in the Pokémon series over the years, Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version still hold their place in history and in our hearts.

    Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue introduce legions of gamers to the world of Kanto, where the likes of Charmander, Pikachu, and Mewtwo were first discovered. Through exciting exploration, battles, and trades, Trainers are able to access 150 Pokémon. And if they're really lucky, they might even be able to catch the elusive (and powerful) Pokémon, Mew!

    You begin your journey in Pallet Town as a young boy. After a dangerous brush with wild Pokémon, Professor Oak teaches you how to capture Pokémon, and then sends you on your way as a fledgling Trainer. During your journey through Kanto, you must capture Pokémon to record their information in your Pokédex, as well as become a better Trainer by competing in Gyms scattered throughout the region. Once you've proven your mettle as a Pokémon Trainer, it's time to take on the Elite Four, a crack group of Trainers that will put all of your learned skills to the test.

    Your journey will be far from easy. In addition to the many Trainers and wild Pokémon you'll encounter along the way, you'll also have to be watchful of Team Rocket, a despicable group of Pokémon thieves. Prevent Team Rocket from stealing rare Pokémon and stop their criminal ways!

    You won't be able to catch every Pokémon in either Pokémon Red or Pokémon Blue; to collect every Pokémon, you'll have to trade with friends via the Game Link™ Cable. With it, you can also take your team of faithful Pokémon into battle against your pals to see how well your team stacks up!

    There's much to see and do in Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue. Start your journey through Kanto and become a Master Trainer!

    Can you capture, train and evolve all 150 Pokémon and fight off the evil Team Rocket?



    Become the greatest Pokémon trainer in the world! Start your Pokémon Game Boy adventure by choosing a tame Pokémon at the home of the great Pokémon master Professor Oak. Then start your journey.

    Your mission: Collect all 150 Pokémon, just like Ash, using your own Pokémon to capture others. Along the way, several skilled trainers, such as Gary, and many minor trainers will challenge you to Pokémon duels. You can't back down, so be ready for anything!

    Remember, Pokémon are not ordinary creatures. To collect all 150, you'll need to train captured Pokémon so they evolve. For instance, a captured Caterpie will evolve into a Metapod, which will then turn into a Butterfree. Each transformation adds more power to the Pokémon-giving you more power to defeat and capture other Pokémon.

    Also keep in mind that some Pokémon are rare and won't be found in your game. Newer Pokemon from Pokémon Gold and Silver do not appear in this game, either.

    The Red & Blue versions of the game each carry their own variety of Pokémon to defeat, collect, and train. To get all 150, trade Pokémon with your friends using the Game Link Cable, which allows the transfer of Pokémon between Game Paks.

    Gotta catch 'em all!

    You've finally been granted your Pokemon trainer's license. Now, it's time to head out to become the world's greatest Pokemon trainer. It's going to take all you've got to collect 150 Pokemon in this enormous world. Catch and train monsters like the shockingly-cute Pikachu. Face off against Blastoise's torrential water cannons. Stand strong when facing Pidgeot's stormy Gust. Trade with friends and watch your Pokemon evolve. Important - no single Pokemon can win it all. Can you develop the ultimate Pokemon strategy to defeat the eight GYM Leaders and become the greatest Pokemon Master of all time?

  • Collect up to 139 different Pokemon playing the Blue version. Using the Game Link cable (sold separately), trade with a friend who has the Red version to capture all 150.
  • You'll need to use both versions (Red and Blue) to collect all of the Pokemon.
  • Test your training skills by battling against a friend using the Game Link cable (sold separately).
  • Save your Pokemon collection and game progress on the Game Pak memory.
  • Requires basic reading skills to fully enjoy the entertaining story.
