The world is inhabited by small creatures that live alongside humans. These creatures are known as Pokémon, or Pocket Monsters, and there are hundreds of different species that live throughout the land in caves, forests, and bodies of water. Each Pokémon has a form of elemental 'type', and certain humans train hard to become Pokémon trainers, by capturing and battling these creatures, which becomes easier when you understand the type matchups, meaning what each type is strong and weak against.
The year was 1996, and little did people know, that there was a new phenomenon about to sweep the world in the form of little 'Pocket Monsters' created by Satoshi Tajiri for Nintendo Game Boy. The 90's kids were still replacing the batteries of their Game Boys handhelds from Nintendo, and enjoying games like Super Mario Land, and Tetris. Little did they know that soon they would have to make one of the toughest decisions of their lives...choosing a starter Pokémon!
