    The Pokémon series has a rich history. Starting with its legacy in 1996, the franchise has grown very rapidly from its more humble beginnings with a wide range of merchandise, TV shows and films.

    This doesn't even mention the astronomical number of spin-off video games that have Pokémon name attached. Pokémon GO for mobile, Pokémon Stadium, Mystery Dungeon, Flipper, Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, the list continues and, as the star of the franchise continues to rise, so does the amount attached to it.



    So, as you might expect with a series that has its hand in all cookie jars, it can be difficult to keep up with the core game series, especially as Nintendo continues to remake and relaunch Pokémon from past eras. With this, you should be ready for speed in no time.

    Here are all the Pokémon played in order, listed by generation.
