I See Mew Redux

A while back, we shared a video from GameTrailers.com showing how to trick your Red Version or Blue Version cartridge into giving you a battle with a wild Mew, without the aid of a cheating device. Well, new information has come to light about exactly how and why it works. Check out the re-edited episode of GT's Pop-Fiction below!

PokéFact: Blast From The Past

I'm sorry guys, but this post has to be a short one. I final exams this week and I don't have as much time as I usually do and everything is just stupid. (Don't you miss being in high school?) I'll try to make it up to you though. Next weeks post may be a long one and in this post I'll do multiple mini facts that a lot of you probably already know (sue me!), but it's better than nothing, right? Though I do give you permission to hate me, if you don't already. (:

Clean the dust off your Game Boys, because today facts are going to be about Red and Blue, which if you remember came out way back in 1998 and you should be please to know that I was already born during that time. I was only two at the time, but I was alive and well, which should count for something! And now time for the facts:

In Red and Blue, you were able to use a fishing rod on the Rhydon statues. However, nothing was found unless you used an Old Rod. Ninetales' name was originally spelled as "Nine Tales" in some early copies of the game. Some beta versions of Red and Blue list Machamp's original name as "Ju-Doh." The Nidorino that appears in Professor Oak's introduction has the cry of a Nidorina. Red and Blue only use 37 completely unique sound clips for cries. The sounds are played back in different ways for each Pokemon. And finally, they collectively are the best selling (non-bundled) game of all time.

The Real Evolution

Most of you know that Venonat evolves into Venomoth and Caterpie eventually evolves into Butterfree, right? But what if the developers messed up when they were making Pokémon Red and Blue back in the day? Do you think it could of happened? We've heard stories of Cubone being a baby...

Why You Need to Start Playing Pokémon.

Pokémon Red and Blue arrived September 30th, 1998. It was one of the best selling Gameboy games of it's time. Overall, Pokémon Red and Blue sold a little over 20 million copies worldwide. Keep in mind, this was before the digital age of iPhones, Kindles, and Tablets that we live in now. A Gameboy with a copy of Red and Blue was the coolest thing in your pocket back in 1998 and the millions of copies out there showed that. 

Fast forward to 2010, almost a complete 12 years later and in less then 30 days Pokémon Black/White will be arriving in Japan (March 2011 for North America). Besides the TV Shows, Movies, Toys, Trading Card Games, Pokémon is one of Nintendo's best selling franchises in today's game market. Out of the top selling video games (source) this year, HeartGold falls in the number 7 spot and SoulSilver ranked up to the number 2 spot. That's pretty impressive, eh?

More importantly out of all that, you probably want to know why you need to start playing? Here you go:
