"Who's that Pokemon?" The curiosity behind this question is unexplainable. If you were a fan and follower of the Japanese series, Pokemon, then you would surely know the anticipation behind knowing what is going to come out next from the red and white ball.

It was on this day back in 1996, the first-ever game series 'Pokemon Red and Green' was launched in Japan.
