Full Answer

Easily the most iconic character in the series, Pikachu is the flagship Pok��mon and the franchise���s original mascot. The tiny electric rodent is inseparable from Pok��mon itself, and is one of the only characters likely to be recognized even by those with no knowledge of the series. While hardcore fans may not appreciate his oversaturation, there���s no denying Pikachu���s popularity.

The rarest and most powerful Pok��mon in the series��� original ���Red��� and ���Blue��� incarnations, Metwo���s popularity was assured from the franchise���s start. A powerful psychic Pok��mon, Mewtwo is hidden deep in the Unknown Dungeon, an area that only becomes accessible after players have completed the rest of the game. Mewtwo���s renown led to appearances in other media, including the first Pok��mon film and Nintendo���s popular fighting game ���Super Smash Bros.���

Players start the original version of Pok��mon by choosing one of three basic Pok��mon: Bulbasaur, Squirtle or Charmander. Representing three of the series��� major elemental types, either grass, water or fire, the original ���starter��� Pokemon evolve into some of the most powerful creatures in the game. Their history, usefulness and prominent appearances in the original Pok��mon TV series make Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Charmander three of the most popular Pok��mon around.
