Pokémon: Official Nintendo Player's Guide is a guidebook for Pokémon Red and Blue published by Nintendo Power.

Right before the "Field Guide" (Pokédex) was a page containing stickers (stamps) for all 150 Pokémon, headed with the phrase "Gotta Stamp 'Em All!". Each Pokémon's entry in the Field Guide featured a space where the owner was encouraged to place the Pokémon's stamp when they had caught that Pokémon.


Gotta catch 'em all!

150 of them. One of you.

"Oddish Cut down a bush!"
  • On page 18, it is said: "In most cities, you won't be able to move on until you defeat the local gym leader."
  • On page 31, an alternate text string for using Cut on a tree was shown. This is likely left over from a prerelease version of the game.
