Pokemon games

Super Smash Bros

Super Smash Bros

Video games are one of the cornerstones of the Pokemon brand, and nowadays, the selection is vast. The original Pokemon games were pixelated RPGs that allowed you to catch, train and battle hundreds of Pokemon. Since then, the Pokemon Company has updated and improved upon their classic RPG formula, and they’ve also created several original titles with their own unique styles of gameplay. Pokemon characters have even been featured in other popular gaming titles like Super Smash Bros.

Players can also battle and catch “gigantimax” Pokemon: a feature completely new to the series that turns Pokemon into a giant, alternate version of themselves.
