'''Generation I''' (also known as the '''Color Generation''' due to the names of the versions released) was the very first set of games introduced in the [[Pokémon|''Pokémon'' franchise]]. The games begin [[Pokémon Red and Blue|''Pokémon Red'']] and [[Pokémon Green|''Pokémon Green'']] in Japan, which are later joined with a third version ''[[Pokémon Red and Blue|Pokémon Blue]]'' and a special edition ''[[Pokémon Yellow]]''. They were released on the Game Boy while ''[[Pokémon Stadium]]'' for the Nintendo 64 in Japan. These games featured the 151 [[Pokémon]] starting with [[Bulbasaur]]. Chronologically, these games take place during the time period of the [[Generation III]] games. These games are also all located in the [[Kanto]] region.
The gameplay primarily consists of the player trying to obtain all 151 Pokémon, defeating all the [[Gym Leader]]s, the [[Elite Four]], and the [[Pokémon Champion]] while encountering other [[Pokémon Trainer]]s along the way.
To find and catch a Pokémon, the player, who is a [[Pokémon Trainer]], walks around in [[tall grass]] (or caves or uses the Hidden Move surf on water). When a wild Pokémon appears, the player battles it with a previously caught Pokemon to lower its health. Lowering the Pokémon's health weakens it, allowing the Trainer to capture it with a [[Poké Ball]]. The player is limited to carrying only six Pokémon at a time. Once the player catches a seventh Pokémon, it automatically transfers to a [[Pokémon storage system]]. Players can change the six Pokemon in their lineup by accessing the Pokémon storage system, which contains 12 "boxes" that each hold 20 Pokémon.
Each Pokémon has its own [[stats]], which consist of [[Attack]], [[Defense]], [[Speed]], [[Statistics#Special Attack|Special]], and [[HP]]. These stats increase when the Pokémon gains a level. The lowest level a Pokémon can be is level 1, while the highest is level 100. Pokémon also have [[move]]s, which can be used to [[attack]] another Pokémon or to heal oneself. In total, there are 165 moves in Generation I, though a Pokémon can only have four moves and will have to forget a move to learn a new one.
Pokémon also come in different [[Pokémon types|elemental types]]. There are 15 different elemental types of Pokémon, consisting of [[Bug Pokémon|Bug]], [[Dragon Pokémon|Dragon]], [[Electric Pokémon|Electric]], [[Fighting Pokémon|Fighting]], [[Fire Pokémon|Fire]], [[Flying Pokémon|Flying]], [[Ghost Pokémon|Ghost]], [[Grass Pokémon|Grass]], [[Ground Pokémon|Ground]], [[Ice Pokémon|Ice]], [[Normal Pokémon|Normal]], [[Poison Pokémon|Poison]], [[Psychic Pokémon|Psychic]], [[Rock Pokémon|Rock]], and [[Water Pokémon|Water]]. Each element has its own weakness, such as [[Normal Pokémon|Fire Pokémon]] being weak against [[Fighting Pokémon|Water Pokémon]], as well as its own strength, such as Water Pokémon being strong against Fire Pokémon. Pokémon receive less damage from and deal more damage to elements they are strong against, while on the other hand dealing less damage to and taking more damage from elements they are weak against. Elemental strengths and weaknesses encourage the player to keep a diverse selection of Pokémon to counter various types of enemy Pokémon effectively.
Some Pokémon can [[evolution|evolve]] into another Pokémon. This can happen when they reach a certain level, are traded with another character or player, or are given an [[Evolution Stones|evolutionary stone]]. When a Pokémon evolves, they develop better stats and may also change types.
The player must travel across [[Kanto]] and defeat the eight [[Gym Leader]]s at their [[Gym]]s, earning a [[Badge]] corresponding with that [[Gym]]. Each Gym specializes in a type of Pokémon, resulting in certain types of Pokémon being effective in certain gyms, while other types of Pokémon are weak in certain gyms. After defeating the eight [[Gym Leader]]s, the player progresses to the [[Elite Four]], where he/she fights the four best trainers in the entire region. After defeating them, the player must then defeat the [[Pokémon Champion]], which will result in the player becoming the new Pokémon Champion.
Players can also [[trade]] Pokémon with or fight against other players through a [[Game Link Cable]]. Some Pokémon have to be traded so that they can evolve.
==Starter Pokémon==
The player can choose one of three [[Starter Pokémon]] at the beginning of the game. The choices are: [[Bulbasaur]] (Grass), [[Squirtle]] (Water), and [[Charmander]] (Fire)
However, in [[Pokémon Yellow]], the player had only [[Pikachu]] to choose as a starter, while the [[rival]] always chooses [[Eevee]], which evolves into either [[Vaporeon]], [[Jolteon]] or [[Flareon]] depending on the results in the battles with him at [[Prof. Oak]]'s lab and at route 22.
==Gym Leaders and the Elite Four==
Generation I introduced a unique set of [[Gym Leader]]s and the [[Elite Four]]. All of these trainers specialized in a specific type of Pokémon and are key to progressing through the game. They all reappear in [[Generation II]]'s [[Pokémon Gold and Silver|Pokémon Gold, Silver]] and [[Pokémon Crystal|Crystal]], [[Generation III]]'s [[Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen]] and [[Generation IV]]'s [[Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver]], except for Koga, who is replaced by Janine, and Giovanni, who is replaced by Blue in Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver.
