Pokémon
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Satoshi Tajiri grew up in Japan. As a child he liked to collect insects. As an adult, he decided to create something new for children to collect. He created the Pokémon characters around 1995. The name Pokémon comes from a contraction. Tajiri took the name Pocket Monsters and combined them to form the new name.
 
2     The game was originally created for the Game Boy. Players of the game used the hand held video set-up for role playing. The player became a trainer of Pokémon species. The first set of characters included Charmander, Bulbasaur, and Squirtle. In a special Yellow version of the game, the character Pikachu was added. Pikachu was an electric-type mouse that became the mascot for all Pokémon merchandise.
 
3     Each Pokémon takes on characteristics that would be found in a certain region. The player will choose a water-type, a fire-type, or a grass-type for training. The player will choose from these characters at the beginning of each game.
