Replay – Pokémon Red

With Pokémon Go on our minds and in our pockets, we take a look at the game that started the catch ’em all craze.

Join myself, Andrew Reiner, Jeff Cork, and Game Informer’s biggest Pokémon fan, Ben Hanson, as we play through the game’s opening, discuss our nostalgia for the original, and remark on the absolutely insanity that is Pokémon Go. We’ve never seen anything like it before and are enjoying the bizarre global infatuation with the pocket monsters from the late ’90s.

For the rest of the episode we look back at other Game Boy games, for a lesson on why licensed games are usually bad. For more Pokémon discussion, check out our Pokémon Spectacular episode of the Game Informer Show podcast.
