Pokémon Red (ポケットモンスター 赤 Pocket Monsters Red) and Pokémon Green (ポケットモンスター 緑 Pocket Monsters Green) were the very first Pokémon games to be released. Green was released only in Japan along with Red, and later when the games were translated for worldwide release was replaced with Pokémon Blue.
You are about to enter the world of Kanto where there are 151 Pokémon waiting for you. Your hometown is in Pallet Town. When you arrive at Professor Oak's lab, there are 3 Starter Pokémon you can choose from. They are Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle. The player is only allowed to choose one of them in these games, and your rival always picks the Pokémon that is your weakness. In Kanto, you must defeat the following Gym leaders in order to advance in the game:
While in the Pokémon League, you will have to face the strongest trainers in the game, The Elite 4. They are as follows:
After you beat your rival, you become the champion, but you still can battle the Elite 4 as many times as you wish.
Your last objective now is to complete the Pokédex.
Once the player has completed the Pokédex, the player is granted a Diploma if they talk to the employee that works for Game Freak in Celadon Mansion.
- Unlike Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow Versions for the Game Boy, Pokémon Green's (or Pocket Monsters Midori in Japan) storage media was never colored green like Red, Blue, and Yellow respectively.
- This is currently one of the only Pokémon games to be exclusively released in Japan.
