About Pokémon

Pokemon (Pokémon) - still a global favorite at 20 years old

Pokemon is a world-famous media franchise spanning multiple genres, from toys and games to anime. The name is a shortening of "Pocket Monsters" - the original Japanese title, derived from the fact that a captured Pokemon would fit in your pocket. The first Pokemon property was Pokemon Red and Green for the original Game Boy. The Pokemon anime premiered on April 1, 1997, and the game and anime together soon gathered a global following, igniting a worldwide Pokemon craze. To date, the Pokemon games have seen global sales of over 280 million units, the anime has been broadcast in 95 countries and regions, and over 21.5 billion Pokemon trading cards have been shipped worldwide, leading to a global Pokemon market valued in excess of 4 trillion yen. Pokemon sparked renewed interest with the 2016 release of mobile game Pokemon Go, which broke multiple download and revenue records and became a much-discussed topic around the world.

Oh, oh okay. I think this one has been really popular recently. Let me show you. I've seen this coin box with a panda version and also, there is a Ghibli version. And, well, today we are unboxing Pokemon so I guess that's why we chose to purchase Pikachu version! So, before opening, we have some instructions. We have step one, two, three, four. And, let's see. So, step one: Put the coin on the yellow circle. And then Pikachu comes out. And then Pikachu comes and steals your money. And doesn't give them away until you really need them. That's how you save money, people. Ta-da! Let's see if it works. Ooh, excited! What if it doesn't work? Ah. Okay, and then… Oh, yea… Aaah, it's so cute! Ah, it's so cute. So, there's the coin and then slightly push it… Ah, such a great help for people like me who can't save money. With this one, I'll just want to put more and more coins, right? I'm going to put 500\. Yea, big guns. Oh, okay, that was… So, let's try. Yes! Aah. The 500\ coin is quite big and heavy but, yea.

Alright, okay. This is the last one. And what would this be? What is this? Is it a game? Is it a toy? Oh, it's a lunchbox! Oh my god, that's so cool. So, you know, lunchboxes are so popular in Japan and there are so many of them and they are all so cute. So, this one is shaped like a Pokemon ball and it's secured with, like, this band which has, like, a Pokemon ball decoration on it as well. I can't open this, so I'm just going to rip it off… and hope it's okay. Yea, so this is… So, this is like a belt?Ooh! I woke up everyone. And it has, like, a… Right, well, in Japan, I guess, the bentos are rice-based. So, here you would put your rice, in Japan, and also use it as a plate. So, just eat it from the lunchbox and use it as a bowl. And here, you can put some, I guess, side dishes into your rice. “Pikachu!” Okay, what? Yea, this goes on the top… No, wait, what? This goes in first, then this goes on top. And, like, close it with the red lid. Arrange it so these parts go together. Push, and then secure it with the band. Let me just try putting the band on as well… God! Okay, what, what the hell am I doing? So, this is the lunchbox and this is our last item today.

In the world of Pokemon, Pokemon Trainers find and capture the eponymous creatures, making them their partner in battling other Pokemon for sport. In the games, the player initially receives their first Pokemon from a Pokemon researcher, and then battles and captures the various Pokemon found in the region. Although the story also captures imaginations, a key part of the appeal of Pokemon games is playing with friends, exchanging Pokemon or battling each other directly. The Pokemon anime tells the story of Ash Ketchum and his journey towards becoming a Pokemon Master, aided by his partner Pikachu. During initial production, the anime producers wanted to make sure the title would appeal to boys and girls alike and reportedly chose to make Pikachu the featured Pokemon to further this aim.

From the first generation of 151 Pokemon, over the years the list has expanded significantly, with a total of over 800 Pokemon making an appearance to date. Riding the wave of popularity caused by both the game and the anime, a wide selection of tie-in toys and other items were released. Over 200 companies hold licenses to produce Pokemon-related goods, including Bandai, Takara Tomy and more. Pokemon plushies have proven especially popular, with limited-edition Pokemon Center Original plushies frequently becoming rare items sought after by collectors. The Pokemon Trading Card Game has also proved a lasting hit worldwide, with rare cards fetching premium prices.

Pokemon celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2016, and shows no signs of slowing down. The internet now allows Pokemon fans across the world to connect with each other and trade Pokemon or do battle anywhere, at any time. It's safe to say that the hit combination of appealing characters and freedom to enjoy the series how you want is the key to the enduring global popularity of the franchise.
