Pokemon Game Timeline

Pokemon games have been a staple of the franchise ever since the wildly popular Red and Blue games. Those games, and those that followed, have perhaps been what sustained the handheld industry for its initial years.

What’s on the Pokemon Game Timeline?

The Pokemon games have long been a huge part of the franchise. While others may have been introduced via the card game, or the television series, a huge group of us fell in love with the little fighters because of the mobile games. Pokemon Red and Blue were hugely popular, and were remade several times over the years.

This timeline includes all those games (though we don’t include every new version of a singlar game). And it also includes a few console games, particularly those released more recently. While the timeline for Pokemon is kind of loose, we hope you will enjoy playing through these games in this rough chronological order.

Where do I start playing Pokemon games?

The answer to this question really depends on what gaming platform you use. If you’re a mobile gamer, Pokemon Go is where its at. For portable game consoles, you might want to start with Pokemon FireRed. If you have a modern console, such as the Nintendo Switch, then we’d recommend starting with Pokken Tournament. Thankfully, most of these games can stand on their own, so it doesn’t matter much.
