This article is about the title screen menu. For the overworld menu, see Menu.

The main menu (Japanese: タイトルメニュー title menu) is the menu that appears right after the title screen in the core series Pokémon games.

In Pokémon FireRed, LeafGreen, Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, the main menu is hidden when there is no save; the player must first create a save file in order to access the main menu.
