Play the original classic and see how it all started! You are Ash Ketchum, a boy on a quest to become the best Pokémon trainer in the world. Choose your starting Pokemon from Professor Oak and help him document every Pokémon in the world!
Unlike Pokemon Go, you will have to battle a wild Pokemon with one of your own to weaken it before then throwing an empty Pokeball at it. As your Pokémon gain experience, their abilities improve and they can evolve and learn new attacks.
Along with capturing Pokemon in the wild, you are also able to trade Pokemon with other players using either a link cable or the Game Boy Colour’s infrared system. Pokémon gained through trades learn and evolve faster, and trading is the only way to capture all 151 since each game. If you want to capture em all you will have to trade with other players that own Pokemon Red or Pokemon Yellow.
