Pokemon is a media franchise published and owned by the video game company Nintendo and created by Satoshi Tajiri in 1996. Originally released as a pair of interlinkable Game Boy role-playing video games, Pokemon has since become the second most successful and lucrative video game-based media franchise in the world, behind only Nintendo’s own Mario series.

Pokemon properties have since been merchandised into anime, manga, trading cards, toys, books, and other media. The franchise celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2006, and as of 28 May 2010, cumulative sales of the video games (including home console versions, such as the Pikachu Nintendo 64) have reached more than 200 million copies.

The name Pokemon is the romanized contraction of the Japanese brand Pocket Monsters as such contractions are quite common in Japan. The term Pokemon, in addition to referring to the Pokemon franchise itself, also collectively refers to the 649 fictional species that have made appearances in Pokemon media as of the release of the Pokemon role-playing game (RPG) for the Nintendo DS, Pokemon Black and White. Like the words deer and sheep, the word Pokemon is identical in both the singular and plural, as is each individual species name; in short, it is grammatically correct to say both one Pokemon and many Pokemon as well as Pikachu and many Pikachu.

In November 2005, 4Kids Entertainment, which had managed the non-game related licensing of Pokemon, announced that it had agreed not to renew the Pokemon representation agreement. Pokemon USA Inc. (now The Pokemon Company International), a subsidiary of Japan’s Pokemon Co., now oversees all Pokemon licensing outside of Asia.

The concept of the Pokemon universe, in both the video games and the general fictional world of Pokemon, stems from the hobby of insect collecting, a popular pastime which Pokemon executive director Satoshi Tajiri-Oniwa enjoyed as a child. Players of the games are designated as Pokemon Trainers, and the two general goals (in most Pokemon games) for such Trainers are: to complete the Pokedex by collecting all of the available Pokemon species found in the fictional region where that game takes place; and to train a team of powerful Pokemon from those they have caught to compete against teams owned by other Trainers, and eventually become the strongest Trainer, the Pokemon Master. These themes of collecting, training, and battling are present in almost every version of the Pokemon franchise, including the video games, the anime and manga series, and the Pokemon Trading Card Game.
