Pokemon Blue Review by: Zlinqx - 7.8/10

A masterpiece or one of the most overrated games of all time?
So since my last review of Pokemon Crystal got some positive feedback I'm doing a 2nd review and this time it's a game I've wanted to review for a long time but haven't really been entirely sure about.

Ah Pokemon Blue... While I did get into Pokemon with the 2nd generation games this didn't stop me from playing the heck out of Pokemon Blue when I first discovered a way to play it on my computer. And I loved them almost just as much as I did the 2nd generation games. But taking off my nostalgia goggles and looking back at it, while this was by no means a bad game, I find it to not quite hold up to the standards of the other Pokemon games, so if you came here thinking I would only be praising the game for how revolutionary it was think again.

And to clarify while this might be self explanatory to some while this is a review for Pokemon Blue Version all that is mentioned in this review does apply to Pokemon Red Version more or less as they are almost identical aside from a few Pokemon being exclusive to each version. Pokemon Yellow on the other hand has a few differences which I might be covering sometime in the future.

Anyways all that aside lets get on with the review!

Sound: 9

The sound in this game is nothing to sneeze at sporting many memorable soundtracks such as the nostalgic and uplifting pallet town soundtrack or the chilling lavender town soundtrack, they all have that feel to them which gets you in the mood to play some Pokemon. The sound effects aren't anything too special again mostly just to add to the immersion and I feel that they fit the game fine. Sound wise this is in my opinion one of the best games on the system. A nitpick is that when using the bicycle (which is probably something you will be using a lot to speed up travelling around the world) the theme that plays while not bad doesn't stop untill you get off your bicycle which will get annoying after a while.

Graphics: 7

I'm kind of split on this honestly, the graphics for the most part aren't that bad but the sprites (especially the ones of the pokemon) can just be downright horrendous sometimes and this is something that could've been remedied and isn't because of graphical limitations. With that said this hasn't ever stopped me from wanting to play the game but I do feel it's something that could've very obviously been improved on. Otherwise there isn't too much else that differs from gold and silver besides the obvious lack of colours which it can't be blamed for since it was released on the original gameboy. I do feel that the town layouts could've been improved on slightly as I feel they are more repetitive here then in the later games again never to the point where it stops me from wanting to play the game but still something that could've been improved on.

But with all things factored in for the most part the graphics were pretty good for the system but some flaws hold it back from me giving it a better rating.

Addictiveness: 9

The Pokemon games are known to be incredibly addicting and the original does not disappoint. This game will consume you until you have played it until completion and even then you might play through it a few more times after that.

Story: 7

The story is pretty much like all the other games. Catch all the pokemon, defeat the pokemon league and defeat the -insert evil team here- though it does get some points for being one of the original games meaning it wasn't as overdone. With that said this isn't always a bad thing the story isn't the focus nor should it be in a Pokemon game and like in the other Pokemon games it leaves a lot of things to think about. Did the Rivals Raticate Die? Are Dittos failed Mewtwo experiments? So on and so forth. And while these are fan theories sometimes it truly feels like the games are hinting at them being true and regardless thinking and speculating about them can be fun. Again though there are some things I feel could've been expanded on a bit more without hurting the flow of the game, like the lore or certain characters.

Depth: 8

Another thing Pokemon games are known for is the Depth, a Pokemon game usually comes packed with things to do and this is no exception to that. Conquering the Pokemon League, Getting all the Pokedex entries, exploring the world, and battling and trading with friends can all be fun and time consuming things to do. And while this game doesn't quite have the amount of content some of the other Pokemon games have it still is a big package. And very impressive considering it is a gameboy game.

Difficulty: 4

Along with Graphics this was probably one of the things I found the hardest to rate. When I first played this as a young kid I actually did find it harder then it successors on the other hand the game had a lot of balance issues compared to the later games. Psychic types were ridiculously overpowered only being weak to bug types which were all fairly weak and there was no really powerful bug move that you could use against them. Ghost types were supposed to counter Psychic types by being super effective against them but instead due to something which was apparently a programming error ghost types didn't even have any effect against Psychic types at all. Not to mention that Special Attack and Special Defense was rolled into one stat which besides causing balance issues for other Pokemon as well especially did so when it came to Psychic types as they typically had high stats when it came to both meaning they both dealt huge damage and could absorb special attacks fairly easily due to it being one stat. Meaning that a team consisting entirely out of Psychic pokemon could probably steamroll through the entire game with little effort. And this is without factoring in that even though I did find this game harder not using Psychic types then say Pokemon Gold and Silver, Pokemon games are already fairly easy most of the time, meaning that this potentially could break the game as there would be no reason not to use them if you want the best possible team. This was fixed in later games but it is a huge problem here. And actually makes me have to lower the Overall rating of the game if you can get past this however (and you should) it is still a great game.

Overall: 7.8

This game is by no means a bad game, I could without a doubt call it a great game and at the time it was released it was quite revolutionary. However some glaring problems make it not hold up to today's standards and it has not aged nearly as well as the other Pokemon games. With that said if you like the other Pokemon games or RPGs I would still recommend you to play this game even if just for how revolutionary it was for the time. If you're completely new to the series I would recommend playing one of the 2nd generation games first (Gold,Silver or Crystal) then come back to this game later. So even though it hurts a bit to give it a rating this low because of how great this game still is for the most part, I still feel some problems make it necessary. Though the remakes Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf Green did fix almost all of the problems of these games, I would still recommend checking the original games out if you're a Pokemon Fan.

And this concludes the 2nd review I've ever written of Pokemon Red/Blue.

Feel free to leave some feedback telling me what you think of the review, if you agree with it or not (and why you think that way of course) and also ways I can improve my reviews until next time. Also please don't forget to rate my review (and rate it fairly not just based on that this is my 2nd review) and hopefully you'll read my next review which may or may not be another Pokemon game...

Pokemon Blue Game Description

You've finally been granted your Pokemon trainer's license. Now, it's time to head out to become the world greatest Pokemon trainer. Starting with just one Pokemon, you need to train hard and vigorously to defeat all 8 gym leaders and the Elite Four.

You start out in a simple town with just one Pokemon. With that Pokemon, it's up to you to battle and catch 5 other Pokemon and train them to become strong enough to defeat your rivals. There are 150 Pokemon to catch, and along the way you can teach your Pokèmon new moves, so every Pokemon is different and unique. Because of this, no Pokemon is the best. You need to maintain a well-balanced team of six Pokemon to defeat any challenge that you face. But remember, there are always other trainers out there willing to prove that they can beat you, so be prepared to battle it out with other trainers as well as the Gym Leaders.

Not only that, but Pokemon Blue allows you to interact with other Pokemon owners. Find a friend with Pokemon Blue, Pokemon Red or Pokemon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition battle it out with one another. You can trade your creatures with each other, because neither Blue nor Red has all 150 Pokemon. Interaction is essential to becoming a Pokemon master!

It's going to take all you've got to collect 150 Pokemon in this enormous world. Catch them, battle them, trade them. Can you develop the ultimate strategy to defeat the eight Gym Leaders and become the greatest Pokemon Master of all time?

Pokemon Blue differentiates itself from Pokemon Red in that there are different Pokèmon in each game. Common Pokemon in Blue are uncommon in Red, and those in Red may not even show up in Blue. It requires both games to collect all 150 Pokemon and become a Pokemon master.

Pokemon Blue Cheat Codes

Catch Safari Zone Pokemon w/o Safari Balls

First go into the Safari Zone (SZ). Go into the area with the pokemon that you want(e.g. Scyther). After you're there, fly to Cinnibar Islands. Surf up & down the right coast, and eventually SZ pokemon will battle you there. If you need other SZ pokemon, just keep swimming up & down the coast. The effect of this glitch doesn't affect your saved game. If you get tired of swimming, don't get out of the water: instead, save right where you are. When you resume your journey, the SZ glitch will still be in effect. This glitch works with any area, not just the SZ.


Duplicate items

To get WELL 99 of an item, put the item you want duplicated in the sixth item slot. Make sure you have the Fly HM, then Fly to Viridian City. Talk to the old man that stopped you in the begining of the game( kind of to the north) When he asks if you are in a hurry, say no and watch him catch a weedle.

Then Fly to Cinnabar Island, and use the SURF HM. Surf along the right COAST, Not in the water, if you surf in the water it won't work.

Now, use SURF until you run into a Pokemon called 'M', 'Missingno.', Or a Pokemon over level 100 Once you see one of those, kill it or just simply run away. DON'T CATCH THE M OR MISSINGNO. AS IT WILL RUIN YOUR GAME!!!

When fighting a high level M if you have a slow pokemon and it attacks you are screwed, as it has a VERY high attack, you can beat him by simply using a quick attack.

after you win/run look at your sixth item it should look VERY weird with wird symbols and such, don't worry all it means is you have over 99 once you use it up alot it will stop using symbols and once the supply gets back to 99 it will show up as '99'


Duplicate Pokemon

You need a link cable, 2 pokemon games, and 2 gameboys for this trick. On 1 gameboy, have a strong pokemon that you both want. On the other, have a weak pokemon that your willing to give up for the other one. Enter Trade mode and trade pokemon. On gameboy 1 (the one with the good pokemon), turn off the gameboy right before it says 'Trade Complete!'. The 2nd GB should say 'Trade Complete!' on it. If done correctly, the bad pokemon on GB 2 should be deleted and replaced with the good pokemon. The good pokemon on GB 1 should still be there.


Glitch City

Glitch City is a weird glitchy town that you can unlock (and get to) by doing the following in this order:
-Go to the Safari Zone (in Fuchia City)
-Enter Safari Zone (pay the 500 bucks)
-Go out of the Safari Zone and when the guy asks you if you want to leave, say 'No'
-Repeat the last step
-Save your game when you are in the Safari Zone, and turn it off
-Turn the game back on and leave the Safari Zone (the guy shouldn't ask you if you want to leave)
-Go to Cinibar Island and surf half on land and half on water, DO this until a message pops up- 'PA-Ding-Dong, Time's Up! Your Safari game is over!'
- You will then be transported back to the Safari Zone
-Exit the Safari Zone building and you will be in Glitch Town
Congrats you did it!


Invisible pc

In Celedon city, there is a hotel in the bottom right-hand corner of the city. In the hotel go to the northern-most portion on the right-hand side, take two steps back then one step up and you will be able to access the pc.

 I'm having an issue right now where when I try to load the game it won't advance passed 0%. Other games work fine for me. Anyone else having this issue?
Missingno. Mast.. 03-07-15 - 10:44 PM
 You don't need to trade to catch 'em all. Just use the Mew glitch. You can get version exclusives, trade evolutions, and as the name implies, #151 itself.
fetcher 02-14-15 - 06:07 PM
 I wonder if you can use Netplay to link between the red version in order to catch them all?
