For many 90s kids, Pokémon means the 151 creatures they caught, trained, and loved back in Red/Blue/Yellow. But Pokémon has grown to be so much more over time, and across eight generations of games The Pokémon Company has created almost 900 monsters for us to fall in love with. The series has a deceptively deep battle system, which is easy to learn but grows extremely complicated once you start raising a good team for online fights. What makes Pokémon special is how attached it makes you feel to your team, and how exciting it is to see them grow and do better.
