150 Pokémon: Gotta Remember ‘Em All

150 Pokémon: Gotta Remember 'Em All


Back in the day during the late 1990s, there was a TV show called Pokémon.  This was the introduction of an unknown cartoon (anime) for western viewers and the beginning of a huge fan base of Pokémon and to this day. Many children during that time may have watched Pokémon on TV after school or during their summer vacation.  There may have been middle school and high school students may have also watched the show.  Many children who are adults now may feel a nostalgic feeling when they hear the Pokémon original intro, to them it was a childhood memory.  (This article will not include Mew)

Many children at that time also had Pokémon Blue and Pokémon Red for the Gameboy.  Some of them played during the morning, afternoon, and/or evening.  Some of them even brought their Gameboy to school and may have gotten in trouble for playing the game in class.  These games also has a nostalgic feeling to those who had a Gameboy with Pokémon Blue and/or Pokémon Red.

The Pokédex, a digital encyclopaedia/Pokémon database, was really helpful during the game because it kept all the Pokémon the player has caught or seen.  This was another way to remember the Pokémon instead of watching the TV show, but it depended on how dedicated the player was.

Pokémon Trading Card Game was released for the Gameboy Color and this was another way to remember the 150 Pokémon.  This was a card game where players had a deck of Pokémon cards, where they could win or lose new Pokémon cards from various opponents.

Remembering math formulas, the periodic table, and other information can be daunting at times. However, could it be easier or difficult to remember the 150 Pokémon, which was shown on TV and seen in the video games?

Here are two quizzes that you can take to see if you name the original 150 Pokémon.  The names have to be spelled correctly or the answer won't register.  If you can't spell some of the names correctly, even though you can say it, then it will affect your score. Correct spelling and memorization (childhood, etc.....) is the key to success to remembering all 150 Pokémon.  There's also a time limit to put pressure on you.

I love video games, especially the retro ones because I grew up playing those ones. A lot of memories and frustrations with some of the NES games, but it was fun enjoying those games. Video games are one of my passions because there are so many games out there that can be played and each one has a uniqueness to it.

    It is definitely hard. I somehow can remember every single one (I blame that catchy rap song from the show), but I can’t spell their names for the life of me. Still fun to see that even after all these years and learning the about the new generations, that I can still remember the original 150. Planning on making a whole Kanto region team when I can in Pokemon Y.

      Same here, it was difficult. I know some of the names, but I couldn’t spell it the right way. I still remember watching the Pokérap after the episodes back in the day. Nice, it would cool to have a Kanto region team for Pokémon Y and have fun making it.
