Overview

Pokemon Red and Blue are the two initial releases of Nintendo's long-running Pokemon franchise. Developed by Game Freak, Red and Blue were the studio's first major successes; the company would eventually go on to create several direct sequels to the games for Nintendo's portable consoles the followed the Game Boy. Although the official number of Pokemon was often touted to be 150 in the games' marketing, the actual number of acquirable Pokemon was 151, albeit with the caveat that the additional creature couldn't be acquired through normal means.
