    Default What do you have to say about these observations about the game (1st generation)?

    1. Pokemon was a Japanese game, with Red and Green versions, released in 1996. Victreebel was the last Pokemon to be added into the game, and it was only available in the Green version. So, it's likely that the Red version was finished first, and the Red version can be considered the original version of the game (there was a story that Satoshi Tajiri picked Green as a color before Red, but I just realized that it was a bogus story) since it was temporarily the only version around as the Green version was not finished until Victreebel was added.

    2. With that said, since Satoshi Tajiri was the person who created Pokemon, the player character's canonical name should be Satoshi instead of Red. He did, after all, wanted to make a game he himself could play. Also, out of the three default names (Shigeru, Green, and John) available to give to the player character's rival, Shigeru is the only name to be taken from a person Satoshi Tajiri knew in real life. Therefore, the player character's rival's canonical name should be Shigeru instead of Green/Blue. Although I understand the reasoning to name the player character as Red and the player character's rival as Green/Blue.

    3. Bulbasaur was added into the game before Charmander and Squirrel, so Bulbasaur should be chosen as the player character's starter pokemon. Although Charizard is the mascot on the game's red version's box, and Charmander is the pokemon that you see in the game's red version's intro. Nevertheless, the box is just the box and the intro is just the intro (they're just extras made for the game). Therefore, Bulbasaur should still be chosen as the player character's starter pokemon.

    4. Kabuto was added into the game before Omanyte. Therefore, the player should choose Kabuto over Omanyte.

    5. Flareon was added into the game before Jolteon and Vaporeon. Therefore, the player should make Eevee evolve into Flareon instead of Jolteon or Vaporeon.

    6. Hitmonlee was added into the game before Hitmonchan.
    Therefore, the player should choose Hitmonlee over Hitmonchan.



    So, what do have to say about these observations?

    While this trivia is interesting, I don't think it'll spark enough discussion to warrant its own thread.
