Pokémon (known as "Pocket Monsters" in Japan) is a series of video games created by Nintendo in 1996. The games became a worldwide phenomenon and, as a result, have led to numerous sequels and spin-offs, an impressively long anime series, multiple movies (Based on said anime), a trading card game and multitudes of other merchandise. The anime series mascots, a yellow, electricity-controlling mouse named Pikachu and its master Ash Ketchum (As in, "Catch them") are almost instantly recognizable by anyone who has been conscious for the last several years.
Ash Ketchum is loosely based off Red, the original protagonist of the first Pokémon titles (Red and Blue, or Generation I) and the final boss Trainer in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal (Generation II) and HeartGold & SoulSilver (the Generation IV remakes of Gold and Silver).
