The History Of Pokémon

Pokémon was first released as a video game by Nintendo in 1996 for their handheld Gameboy systems. A RPG (role playing game) that required strategy and combined colorful characters and entertaining storyline quickly became a hit for Nintendo. The Pokémon franchise soon branched off from video games into collectible toys, cards and a hit animated TV series that brought the anime style to a mainstream market in the western world.

Pokémon trading card game took the elements of the video game into the real world with players acting as Pokémon trainers and battling opponents using their Pokémon cards.  The Winner of each battle gets to draw a prize card and then the game continues until all opponents are knocked out and there is a final winner. The trading cards became highly sought after, especially rare and unique Pokémon to use in battle. As time has gone on, these cards have increased in value.
