This was, along with Pocket Monsters Red, the first Pokemon games ever released. It is a little bit different, though. That is because it had some flaws that people complained about that were fixed in Pocket Monsters Blue, or the Pokemon Red and Blue that we got in the US.
The two main flaws with Green and Red are that a lot of the Pokemon’s sprite art looks odd and ugly looking, and there were many glitches, often gamebreaking.
There are some other flaws/things that were fixed/changed in the US releases, such as:
- During Oak’s lecture at the start of the game, the Nidorino’s cry actually belongs to a Nidorina.
- Missingno has an actual Pokedex entry, unlike in Blue where the entry is glitched up.
- The pokemon only found through in-game trade were found in the wild in the Blue version.
I would recommend these games for those who wanted to see what Pokemon Red and Blue where when they were released in Japan, or if you want to disprove that Lavender Town creepypasta, or if you just want to glitch the hell out of this game. But I really suggest you just try the Japanese Blue version, or Gen 1’s North American releases.
We all know about the international releases of Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue and the remakes of the Japanese Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green known as Pokémon FireRed and Pokémon LeafGreen as a worldwide release on the GBA. Japan did get a Pokémon Blue but the rest of the world did not get a Pokémon Green. For those hardcore fans that are curious enough to play the Japanese game, there is an English translation patch for Pokémon Green! The title screen has been updated, so the patch is complete now. Original Release date was 19 October 2007.
This patch is for a Pocket Monsters - Green Version (J) (V1.0) ROM. Pocket Monsters - Green Version (J) (V1.1) will not work. The file with [S] at the end is fine with this version.
Pokémon is Pocket Monsters in Japan.
Please note: Despite the patch version being labeled “1.0″, the only things that have been altered are items, NPCs, and other text up to and including the first NPC of Tokiwa (Viridian) Forest.
