The most electrifying rat of all.

Pokémon has become one of Nintendo’s absolute biggest sellers, and it is one of the few Nintendo games that almost everyone still plays. The game, originally title Pocket Monsters, has now had multiple versions created including an anime show, comic books, and several knock off games.

The franchise really picked up speed after the release of the original anime. The series followed the young boy named Ashe Ketchum and his favorite Pokémon Pikachu, as they journeyed together to beat the Pokémon league. That show alone made Pikachu into one of the most recognized and famous Pokémon of all. It is today known as an icon of Japanese culture. When most people think of Pokémon, they think of Pikachu.
