February 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 159

Pokemon, a portmanteau for the words pocket and monsters, is a very successful game title created by the Nintendo Company. The game was developed by Satoshi Tajiri in the nineties. This video game title is the second most lucrative franchise developed by Nintendo, after Mario. Pokemon was so successful, it is said to improve the marketability of Nintendo's handheld consoles which experienced a dip prior to the release of the first generation of the games.

The newest addition to the video game franchise is the 5th Generation Pokemon Black and White which features new creatures and characters from the region of Unova. Since its inception, the video game there are several movie adaptations, anime, manga, and other items inspired by Pokemon.

The concept behind Pokemon's gameplay draws heavily from the game creator's hobby of insect collecting. Similarly, the gameplay in Pokemon involves collecting creatures to add to the game's Pokedex or creature catalog with the intent of completing it, and training a team of Pokemon to battle against other wild and trained creatures.

Pokemon, as a popular franchise, has indubitably left a mark in pop culture. A number of movies and television programs have made references and spoofs of Pokemon. All Nippon Airways Boeing 747-400 are dubbed as Pokemon jets because their exteriors are painted with a Pikachu and/or several other Pokemon. The franchise is hugely popular among the kids, but there are also young adults who consider themselves as fans, having played the video games in their childhood.

The 5th Generation of Pokemon is said to be designed to appeal to older gamers who were introduced to the game during their younger years. One of the newest features on Pokemon Black and White is the C-gear which helps you connect with other players using wireless technology. It also has Pokemon Global Link, which is a platform where you can add new creatures otherwise unobtainable in Unova to your Pokemon Black and White Pokedex.
