Pokémon Blue & Red came out in the US in 1998, and I received the Blue version for Christmas from my Aunt and Uncle a few years after that. I was surprised to get a gift from them, and truthfully, Pokémon wasn’t really on my radar at the time. Nonetheless, I dove head first into the game and soon was trying my very best to catch them all.
I have fond memories of attempting to bike all the way home from school using no hands so I could play Pokémon on the go. I made it all the way to Champion’s Road but never ended up finishing the game. To this day, I haven’t played a Pokémon game since, but I still appreciate the series. And, I love seeing all the unique characters that have been created after all this time.
Below is my pixel art of what I think is one of the most iconic moments in the game: meeting Professor Oak alongside your rival and choosing your first Pokémon!
