Pokemon is one of the biggest gaming franchises in history. It was developed and envisioned by Satoshi Tajiri. His ideas came from his boyhood obsession with insect collecting, and also has said that the lead character of Ash Ketchum is also based on his memories of himself as a child growing up in Japan.
The games features many different types of creatures that everyone calls Pokemon. These creatures have varying looks and types, such as water, grass, fire, and electricity. The society portrayed in the Pokemon universe has developed around the capturing, trading, and battling of Pokemon. This makes a dynamic backdrop for a story about a young trainer dreaming to be the greatest Pokemon trainer in the world.
Pokemon certainly started off as just a game series, but its popularity grew quickly and so an anime show was developed to further explore the journey of Ash Ketchum and his adorable little Pokemon Pikachu. Though Ash Ketchum is incredibly popular, he is perhaps eclipsed only by his first catch, Pikachu! The small yellow creature with pointed ears and round pink cheeks is a beloved character known around the world.
