Trivia

Levels

The maximum level your Pokémon can reach is level 100. After that, it will continue to get experience, but will not gain any more levels.

Pokémon Blue

The U.S. and European releases of Pokémon Blue Version are based not only on the Japanese release of Blue Version, but also on the Japan-only Pocket Monsters Midori. The Pokémon Blue known to western audiences uses the updated graphics and code from the Japanese Blue, but retains Midori's encounter lists and available in-game trades.

Virtual Console Alterations

Pokémon Blue and its counterpart versions were rereleased for the 3DS Virtual Console to celebrate the Pokémon franchise's 20th anniversary in 2016. Since the Nintendo 3DS isn't compatible with the long-obsolete Game Link Cable, these releases use the system's local wireless features for link trades and battles. Additionally, several attack animations have been toned down for the safety of players with photosensitive epilepsy or other sensory conditions.
