The world of Pokemon is vast and all trainers, including the ever-eager Red, have their beginnings. Tasked by Pokemon Researcher Professor Oak with compiling an encyclopedia of all 149 known monsters, Red travels across the land, searching far and wide for more creatures to complete his mission. Along the way he'll face plenty of challenges, such as battling Gym Leaders, tackling the Pokemon league and even halting the plans of an evil organization. One thing's for sure, being the best isn't just about strength, it's about heart as well.
