The Pokémon franchise has dozens of games released since the 90s. Today it is already recognized worldwide as one of the most profitable and fun. And precisely with so many titles for so many platforms it is difficult to choose the best ones! To help you, we have created the definitive list of all games in the series you should play today or as soon as possible!
10. Pokémon Snap – Nintendo 64 (1999)
Pokémon Snap is one of the most different games ever created for the franchise. Amazingly, it was not very successful in the West, having been considered a game almost cult in Brazil. Even so, whoever played keeps fond memories of that title!
In it you took control of Todd Snap, the photographer who appeared in the cartoon a few times. The objective was to photograph as many of the creatures as possible. For the time, it was innovative. The bad thing is that of the 151 existing Pokémon of the time, only 63 appeared in the game.
The objectives varied from phase to phase, with only 7 phases. It was cool, because Professor Carvalho gave him points for each photo taken, according to his qualities.
9. Pokémon Stadium – Nintendo 64 (1998)
Pokémon Stadium was chosen by many experts as one of the best Nintendo 64 games. There are two different versions, one Japanese and one American. The American is more complete, as it has 151 Pokémon, while the Japanese has less than 50.
The idea was to have the player controlling monsters at level 100, fighting enemies controlled by artificial intelligence or by other players. There were minigames and even the possibility to fight Kanto’s gym leaders. The gameplay was all in turns, following the profile of a strategy game.
8. Pokémon GO – Android and iOS (2016)
Let’s start our Top 10 with one of the most revolutionary games in recent years. Pokémon GO broke down barriers and took millions of gamers to the streets. He created a huge community of players, bringing together and uniting fans and even non-fans around the idea of hunting little monsters.
Today there is no title more successful in terms of augmented virtual reality than this. It exceeded the expectations of even the most passionate and optimistic aficionados. Participate in raids with friends in real places, outdoors, and collecting rare Pokémon are things that still move many people today.

7. Pokémon X and Y – Nintendo 3DS (2013)
Pokémon X and Y are the first games of the sixth generation of the franchise. This game introduced a new region, Kalos, now 100% in 3 dimensions, something completely new until then in the series games. These two games brought battles against hordes of Pokémon, as well as air battles for the first time.
The game also enabled players to further personalize the character, as well as locations similar to real places, such as the Eiffel Tower and the Palace of Versailles. It was in these games that Megaevolution was introduced, in addition to having a new type of Pokémon, the Fairy type.
6. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Saphire – Nintendo 3DS (2014)
Omega Ruby and Alpha Saphire are very well remakes of the Ruby and Sapphire games, both from 2002. It brought much better graphics than those of the first games. In general terms, however, the narrative is the same, having received some touches here and there.
One of the coolest was the addition of a special mission, in which players must capture Rayquaza to stop a meteorite, which is heading towards Earth. In this star is none other than Deoxys, the alien Pokémon!
5. Pokémon Black & White – Nintendo DS (2010)
We have a controversial game here in terms of criticism. The Black & White fan base is huge, but at the same time there are a lot of fans who didn’t like the game. Still, he holds the best-selling electronic game record in the shortest time, having sold nearly 2.70 million copies in Japan alone in two days.
For the first time since then the Pokémon sprites are fully animated. The battles have become much more exciting, as each type of attack causes a different reaction in the monsters. In addition, the camera always focuses on the Pokémon in action.
Among all the Pokémon games ever made, this one is considered by many to be the most complex and difficult!
4. Pokémon Platinum – Nintendo DS (2008)
Pokémon Platinum is one of the first titles in the franchise to be released for the DS. It is the master version of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl . In general, it did not bring many changes or novelties in relation to its predecessors. Giratina, however, the game’s strongest Pokémon, received a special version.
Anyway, Platinum was the big leap in quality compared to Emerald . He presented Sinnoh, a larger region and full of new monsters to capture. Whoever has a DS is a mandatory game, mainly for the visual part, which is really beautiful!
3. Pokémon Red / Blue – Game Boy (1996)
These were the first games created in the Pokémon franchise. That alone justifies their presence here. In Japan, the Blue version was released as Green , which never officially made it to the West. This game laid the foundation for future games in the franchise, especially those released for laptops.
The idea of an unknown trainer, who chooses an initial Pokémon and continues on his journey through different cities, was more than right. The game has always been challenging, especially when it comes to catching legendary birds and Mewtwo. Despite being in black and white, it is a beautiful game !
2. Pokémon Crystal – Game Boy Color (2000)
Pokémon Crystal is for Silver and Gold what Emerald is for Ruby and Sapphire . It unites the best of the first two titles that take place in Johto. With beautiful graphics and a very captivating story, guide the player in capturing the legendary Suicune! Besides him, the presence of Entei, Raikou, Lugia and Ho-Oh makes the game even more fantastic.
After winning the Johto League, we go to Kanto and we have to earn 8 more badges and the League from there to battle Ash! Exactly: Ash, with his Charizard and Pikachu, is the most difficult opponent in the game. So if you really want to battle it, we advise you to go well trained!
1. Pokémon Yellow – Game Boy (1998)
The supreme classic of Pokémon games! He deserves the first place for several reasons. First because it was the first game in the franchise based entirely on the anime. Taking elements from its predecessors, Red / Blue , allowed players to follow Ash on his journey to the League.
The coolest thing is to have Pikachu following you wherever you go, always out of Poké Ball. In addition to it, you get Kanto’s initial 3: Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur. Everything according to the cartoon. In fact, don’t waste time trying to evolve your Pikachu to Raichu. He will refuse, just like the drawing!
Although graphically these things are not there and not even have a right color, Pokémon Yellow is in the hearts of all the big fans of the franchise.
