Re-live the glory of Pokemon Red/Green through concept art
With all the new Pokemon B&W 2 news coming out of Japan, it seemed like the right time to revisit the Pokemon of yesteryear. These pieces of concept art from Ken Sugimori reflect the wonder and excitement behind your first adventure with these pocket monsters. Enjoy this small sample of what Sugimori managed to create, as you long for the more meaningful Pokemon of our youth. Or at least of my youth...
Right in the childhood Sean, right in the childhood.
pokemon still is pretty good minus the contests or pokeolympics or whatever and pokes made out of inanimate objects
Actually, when it cam out in Japan, it was red/green. Then about a year later, they released blue, which included some features that were not in the first two. When Pokemon came to America, they decided to release the blue upgrade, but split the versions as red/blue.
In Japan, it was Red and Green. In America, it was Blue instead of Green.
In my opinion Pokemon is the best game franchise there is. The original Red/Blue games and the 151 pokemon in them will always have a very special place in my heart.
ah the good ol days, when pokemon was not as confusing as it is now... miss those sweet old days
Wasnt it Pokemon Blue?
Green was the blue remake on the advance... right?
Tikisaurus.com (source). Not sure how he found them though.
