The Videogame Corner: Pokemon Red & Blue (2023)

The Videogame Corner: Pokemon Red & Blue (1)

Game: Pokemon Red & Blue
Developer:Game Freak
First Released:1996
Genre:Role-Playing Game

As a 90’s kid it was inevitable for me to talk about the biggest monster breeding/training/fighting franchise on the market: Pokemon. In fact, I am old enough to have played the first games back when they came out all those years ago (even though I was pretty late to the party during the first gen). I can vividly remember asking my classmates how to solve the puzzle in the old laboratory on Cinnabar Island, which I now know consisted of pressing exactly one button to open the door leading down the only logical path. I have fond memories of opening the Pokemon picture book I had back in the day and dividing the Pokemon in groups with my friends to determine which Pokemon we liked the best. And I can also remember my incredibly over-leveled Venosaur being torn to shreds by Lorelei’s Lapras, which unfortunately managed to freeze my flowery friend with an Ice Beam; rather unfortunate, since I had no other Pokemon to use after it due to not knowing how to switch the active Pokemon and therefore not training any others. It was early days, and whether it was not explained that well in the game or I simply was a dumb kid that did not think about playing the game correctly, I have to admit that the game itself was fun. So, in order to re-live the start of the Pokemon franchise, I played through the old Pokemon games (a.k.a. the “First Gen”) for the Gameboy via emulator and want to share some of my experiences with you.

A small sidenote: To make the entire thing at least a little bit more challenging, I asked my Discord group to name the Pokemon I should use during the playthrough of Pokemon Blue and we ended up with the following: Pidgeot, Muk, Vaporeon, Omastar, Ninetales, Victreebel. This basically meant that my early game was pretty abysmal, due to only having the token bird Pokemon in form of Pidgey until I managed to get to around the second gym, at which point the game got progressively easier. I am aware of the fact that speedrunners and players that produce challenge videos play through the game with just one pokemon, just having six felt more like the normal way people would play the game. I did not play Pokemon Red again for this article, but I have a game file from about one and a half years back that has a save after defeating the last trainer in the game. I also have a finished file for Pokemon Yellow, but since that game is actually different from both Blue and Red, I started a new file and ended up using mainly three Pokemon to finish the entire thing; which will get its own article eventually.

Chances are that if you are reading this article, you are probably aware of what “Pokemon” actually is. However, to anyone who does not know what to do in a main series “Pokemon” game, here is a small explanation. “Pokemon” is basically a monster collection game. You catch the so-called Pokemon by weakening wild variants with your own Pokemon attacking them, then using Pokeballs to catch them. That is the basic premise of every main series Pokemon game, and its honestly kinda weird explaining it all because this seems so basic to me. However, while the basic premise of catching Pokemon and training them to become the best trainer there is stays always the same throughout the series, there are various different ways to play Pokemon games: Catching all types of Pokemon in the game is one challenge you can do, which can be pretty difficult due to the “animals” in question only appearing in specific spots, needing some sort of weather condition to come out, or even asking for some puzzles to be solved in order to get to them. Another option is breeding the perfect team to battle against other players, which is what competitive Pokemon players do. There are people who simply play through the game once and are content with that, which is a group we could refer to as the “casual” players; and that is totally fine since the Pokemon games are not terribly difficult and there is fun in simply experiencing the game. Yet another way “Pokemon” games find attention is via the aforementioned speedrunning: Playing through the game as fast as possible has grown in popularity over the years, since it gives the game the added twist of also fighting against a timer. As you can see, Pokemon is quite diverse as a videogame.

However, this is not how it started. At first, there was the basic premise of, like I said, a monster collection game, which was first released on the original Gameboy. This is also the reason why all the pictures in the article are in black and white: the original Gameboy had no colors if you ignore the fact that the screen had a distinct green tone. The story goes as follows: You are a young boy in a village called Pallet Town (back in the day there was no option to choose female characters), and since you are deemed old enough by the society of the Pokemon world, you are sent out into the world to partake in your own Pokemon journey. With nervous excitement, you leave the safety of your house and eventually step into the high grass in front of the town to start said journey. Suddenly, Prof. Oak, a renowned Pokemon expert, stops you stating that it is too dangerous to stroll through high grass due to the possibility of encountering wild Pokemon. However, there is a solution to that problem: You receive one of the critters of your own to travel and battle with. The choice in the so-called “Gen 1” games comes down to Bulbasaur, a Grass-type, Squirtle, a Water-type, or Charmander, a Fire-type Pokemon. You pick whatever Pokemon you like best, get introduced to your annoying rival Gary, the grandson of Prof. Oak, by battling him, and are then allowed to explore the world of Pokemon.

When it came out, Pokemon was certainly a fresh concept. You decide what your party should look like, with various Pokemon types to use that bring their own strengths and weaknesses. For example, a Grass-type Pokemon receives more damage from Fire-based attacks, while Water-type Pokemon can do significant damage with its Water moves against the fiery critters; and trust me, it gets much more complicated than that. Each Pokemon can learn four attacks, with which you fight against other Pokemon, both wild ones and those that belong to other trainers that will challenge you to battles during your journey. Both what to do in the games as well as how to fight against other Pokemon changed massively over the years, but in the case of Pokemon Blue and Pokemon Red, it is really as simple as knowing what type the opposing Pokemon has and what move you can use against them that will prove to be the most effective. I can even provide an easy example of the importance of types in a Pokemon game: I mentioned that I asked my Discord group what Pokemon I should use. Well, at the start of the game, I was only allowed to use Pidgey, which is both a Flying- and a Normal-type. The first major trainer to battle against is Brock, a trainer that uses Rock-type Pokemon. Unfortunately, both Flying and Normal moves are not effective against Rock-types, and Rock-type moves are very effective against Pokemon with the Flying-type, making this the worst possible matchup I could have gotten. Thankfully, Brock’s Pokemon do not know Rock-type moves, but even then the battle was a massive struggle due to the bad matchup I was dealt.

We already know that we started our own Pokemon journey, like all kids our age, but we are not simply running around to see the world, no no. If we have to travel anyway, we want to be the very best, like no one ever was, which is why we have to seek out the Pokemon Gyms and their Gym Leaders, defeating them in battle and gaining their badges to gain access to the Pokemon League, where our abilities will be put to the ultimate test. Additionally, every Pokemon game also features some evil organization that exploits Pokemon for their evil goals, which is why we need to stop them from doing whatever it is they are doing. In the first Pokemon games, this role is taken by Team Rocket, a group of guys (and from Gen 2 onwards gals) in black clothing with a big red “R” on the front of their overalls and a small army of mostly Poison-type Pokemon at their disposal. They take a major role in the plot and we do need to fight them fairly often to progress, but overall this group of villains is nothing we could not handle as the player. Some of the Gym Leaders are harder, though: The second Gym Leader Misty might use a straightforward strategy, but her damage is high enough to catch you off-guard easily. In fact, since all Gym Leaders have access to a Gym Leader-only attack, you might find some of them rather challenging if you are not prepared. However, by progressing further in the game, you also unlock more areas with more Pokemon to fill your team to the maximum allowed number of six, improving your chances of having the right tool for the job at hand.

This is also what happened in my “challenge” playthrough. After playing the first sections of the game with only a Pidgeotto, the evolved form of Pidgey, at my disposal, I was finally able to gain some additional team members after leaving Cerulean City, at which point I had more type coverage as well as more fighting power to fall back upon should my previously solitary bird succumb to an opposing attack. As soon as you are aware of what you need to do in the game, it turns out to not even be that long, despite being a role-playing game with a grinding component. The last save I made in front of Lance, the leader of the Elite Four, was a Vaporeon Lv50, a Pidgeot Lv51, a Muk Lv50, an Omastar Lv51, a Ninetales Lv51, and a Victreebel Lv50; and it did not take me that long to get there. Upon defeating Lance, there is really only one battle left: The last battle against your rival Gary, to claim the title of champion for yourself. With this final hurdle taken, Prof. Oak arrives at the scene, scolds Gary for not being nice enough to his Pokemon, and uses that as the reason why he lost the battle. However, due to being the champion after all that I do not really care what excuse they come up with. After winning the final battle and being crowned champion, you are left with either collecting all the Pokemon, training a “perfect” team, or simply playing something else really. They tried to include some additional stuff to do after you have seen all the locations and basically dealt with the final fight, like the Cerulean Cave which houses the legendary Pokemon Mewtu, but since it was the first Pokemon game I will not criticize it for the lack of post-game content.

Since there are multiple versions of the game, you might be wondering what the difference between Pokemon Blue and Pokemon Red is. Well, you can only catch certain Pokemon in either edition, so to gain all the critters you needed to have both games or know someone with the version that you did not possess. You could call that money-grabbing, and with the number of extras for the Gameboy that they sold specifically due to Pokemon, I am not in a position to disagree. The amount of “Link Cables” Nintendo must have sold due to the games requiring them for trading must have made them a fortune. Apart from the different Pokemon, the games are mostly identical. However, while the Red and the Blue version of the game are almost identical, they mixed it up a little for “Pokemon Yellow” starting a trend that they would continue for quite a while in form of releasing a very similar game again but with enough alteration to renew interest in the player base.

On a gameplay basis, it should be mentioned there are several balancing issues and bugs in the game. First of all, Psychic-type Pokemon were clearly too powerful. Apparently, they were supposed to get countered by Bug and Ghost-type moves/Pokemon, but due to the lack of good moves with such typings as well as all those Pokemon also being Poison-type and therefore being weak against Psychic moves, there is little one could do to effectively work against Pokemon of that type. Dragon-type Pokemon had the light version of that issue since the only Dragon-type move called “Dragon Rage” always inflicted 40 damage, no matter what Pokemon uses it, making Ice-type moves the only effective Type against them; but since that is mostly limited to Dragonite it did not become that relevant in comparison. Another well-known issue is the accuracy of moves: Every attack in the game has a 1/256 chance of missing due to programming reasons, even if the move should normally hit guaranteed. Also, critical hit chance was calculated from the Pokemon’s speed, allowing certain Pokemon to have insane crit chances, while crit chance-enhancing moves instead lowered the chances due to bugs. I could go on with the programming issues and bugs in the game, but again “Game Freak” delivered a solid game back in the day and they did their best to iron out the flaws in the later installments.

However, one of the crazier occurances in the first Pokemon games that has gotten a cult status over the years is the so-called Pokemon “Missingno”. “Missingno” is actually not a Pokemon per se, but more of a glitch that can occur in the game due to programming reasons. I would suggest googling the explanation to why this thing comes up, since I would probably make a mess of explaining it, but there is a list of crazy stuff happening in the game after encountering “Missingno”. First of all, it is a dual-type Pokemon being a Bird/Normal Pokemon; which is interesting, since all birds are Flying-type, not Bird-type, therefore having no relation to any type in the game and having no moves. Should you encounter it in battle, it will trigger an item duplication-glitch, which gives you 128 times the item that you have in the six slot of your bag. After catching it, you can technically use it in battle, but it will inevitably screw with the sprites of your team, while also being interesting to fight with due to potentially high levels that you cannot normally reach in the game, and fairly random movesets. But despite all this being caused by a glitch, it further increased the original Pokemon games popularity and even helped it draw attention from people that were not interested in the games at first.

What the first Pokemon games created was a craze that has momentum to this day. Pokemon is a household name of the Nintendo franchises, and new main series Pokemon games are bought by countless players; some of them just doing the purchase out of loyalty to the franchise and not even being that stoked by the idea of a new Pokemon game. It created incredible amounts of merchandise, numerous videogames of various genres, a successful trading card game, and is so entangled in every day pop culture that I could probably ask the elderly about Pokemon and they are bound to name some facts about the franchise that are true; which is quite a feat for a video game series about collecting monsters. Are the games any good in 2021? Well, without a solid portion of nostalgia, I highly doubt that you can get people interested in Pokemon using the clunky graphics, the lack of colors, and the sometimes baffling fighting system. However, Pokemon Blue, Red, and Yellow were stepping stones to greatness and definitely deserve their places in the videogame “Hall of Fame”-lists. Playing the games on the original system might prove to be a challenge since those are old enough to succumb to screen rot and other technical maladies at this point, while new models are off the market for decades now. However, one can easily emulate the games, which you should do if you are interested in seeing the beginnings of Pokemon for yourself; just lower you expectations a little before you start them.
