Japan has been taken over by monsters, and no, not Godzilla. The craze over
Pokemon (called 'Pocket Monsters' in Japan) has spread from the Pokemon Game Boy games to toys, clothing, cartoons and even snack food.
You can't go anywhere in Japan without running into Pokemon, and now, it's coming to America.
Pokemon appeals to many ages and types of fan, which is a big part of why it's so popular. Players enjoy the role-playing, collecting and trading aspects of the game, which make Pokemon so unique.
The primary goal in Pokemon is to find, capture and train various monsters, all in an effort to become the world's greatest Pokemon trainer. You'll choose one of three tamed 'starter' monsters at the beginning of the game to help you capture other monsters.
There are 151 monsters in 15 different categories. Each category will be based on a specific characteristic or element, such as water, fire, flora, etc. There's a catch, though: there will are three versions of the game, a Red version, a Blue version and a Yellow version, and not all of the monsters will be on any one Game Pak. To collect all 151 monsters, you'll have to trade.
In Japan, this monster-collecting feature has made America's trading card frenzy seem tame by comparison. Collecting the monsters is simply addictive -- but that's just the half of it!
You'll be able to customize your Pokemon by training them differently as they grow and evolve.
For example, two fire-breathing Charmanders may end up with very different skills and abilities by the time they evolve into their most powerful forms. The possibilities are endless with Pokemon!
