Top 35 Best Pokemon Games of All Time

1 of 25

Pokemon is one of very few video game series that have stood the test of time over the past couple of decades. As gamers have seen franchises come and go, some dying horrible spin-off deaths, others just fading into obscurity, those darn pocket monsters have stood at the forefront of handheld relevance. Not only that, but they’ve also traveled outside of their original realm of gaming and still managed to make lasting impressions. With so many games existing under the Pokemon name it can be hard to figure out where to start if you’re new. What’s worth your time? Is it better just to start with the newest and go from there? What about the console games? To that end, we’ve ranked the best Pokemon games of all time for you.

Let us know your favorites in the comments down below! Please note, though, since there is such an abundance of Pokemon games released in North America, we have excluded original versions of those titles that got remakes.

Only it did so in the laziest way possible.

Pokemon Dash puts players in control of Pikachu as they race through levels by quickly swiping in the proper direction on the bottom screen using the stylus. That is all. There are no other mechanics, and in single-player you have no choice but to be Pikachu.

Sure you can unlock maps shaped like other Pokemon by inputting your cartridge for either Ruby, Sapphire, FireRed, LeafGreen, or Emerald. But that would just suggest you and your poor DS to more vicious swiping in one of the most boring racing games out there.

For Sudoku lovers, there are these kinds of puzzles. A timeless classic with a Pokemon twist that was perfect for gamers on-the-go. Unfortunately not much else was included in this title, so it’s hard to pin this any higher. But, as a puzzle game, it was solid.
