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.
