Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue were the first Pokémon games to be released in the US, on September 30, 1998. The Japanese equivalents were Pokémon Red and Green, released on February 27, 1996. A sister game with minor gameplay changes was released later, Pokémon Yellow.

The relationship between the English version of Pokémon Red and Blue with the Japanese version are a bit complex. A revision with improved gameplay and graphics, the Japanese Pokémon Blue was released on October 15, 1996. The English version of Pokémon Red and Blue are based on the Japanese Pokémon Blue's engine and graphics; and the English version of Pokémon Blue had the Japanese Pokémon Green's wild and trade Pokémon.

This game duo introduces the original Pokémon gameplay concepts. Players travel across the Kanto region and battle against Gym Leaders in eight Pokémon Gyms to win badges. Once eight badges are collected, the player may enter the Kanto region's Pokémon League.

Pokémon Trainers catch Pokémon and aspire to catch all 150 known Pokemon. The elusive 151st Pokémon, Mew, was given out at special events, but can also be caught through a game glitch.
