Reading through these Pokemon quotes will have you feeling nostalgic, for sure!
Pokemon, also known as Pocket Monsters, is a 90s phenomenon that just keeps delivering.
Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures founded the Japanese media franchise, which is managed by The Pokémon Company.
Satoshi Tajiri created the franchise back in 1995.
The initial launch was a Gameboy game and featured fictional monsters called “Pokemon.”
Humans, dubbed Pokemon Trainers, could catch and train their monsters to battle each other for sport.
It didn’t just stop there, branching off into a TV Show, movies, more video games, and tradable cards.
Pokemon has become the highest-grossing media franchise of all time and holds the record of second-best-selling video game franchise.
(The number one selling video game franchise title belongs to Mario Bros., in case you were wondering).
Pokemon kept adapting to technology and created the ever-popular Pokemon Go app for smartphones.
The frenzy around that app was insane, but it got people moving and playing together!

Which of these Pokemon quotes is your favorite?
Why is Pokemon still so popular after all this time?
When it came out, the gameplay featured addicting mechanics, like the need to ‘Catch ‘em all!’
That is still around in the app, and like the original, it encourages you to play with your friends!
Everyone had Pokemon, and trading them was a lot of fun.
The show, featuring the adorable Pikachu, didn’t hurt its popularity any either!
There aren’t very many Pikachu quotes on the list, because originally Pikachu responded to anything with “Pika Pika.”
However, he shocked fans when he spoke to Ash in English, in Pokemon the Movie: I Choose You!
I wonder what other surprises they have in store for fans this time around!
The latest in the Pokemon movies, Pokemon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle, will be here soon!
If you need a Pokemon fix while you wait though, download Pokemon Go, and give it… well a, go!
