There are few things in nerd culture that are as timeless as Pokemon. The franchise includes the original trading card game, video games, anime series, movies, and so much more. If you need gifts for Pokemon TCG fans, you've come to the right place.
I got into Pokemon back in its early days—yep, I am OT. An original trainer. The first game I played was Pokemon Red, but it often frustrated me that you could not obtain all the Pokemon in-game. Specifically, I wanted to obtain all the starters without having to go through the hassle of using a trade cable with a friend.
Many people who grew up in the 90s on Nintendo 64 games remember playing Pokémon Stadium as children engaging in countless battles within the game and with their friends for hours on end. And while those people (including myself) still love the game even to this day due to nostalgic memories, there are more reasons to enjoy the game in completing it as an adult.
The gaming industry has been the leading innovator of entertainment ever since the emergence of Sega and its first game ever, Pong. Since then, video games have evolved and grown accustomed to the modern age, such as Call of Duty and Fortnite. There have been several different systems and companies throughout this period of time and it will only continue to grow. From classic systems such as Nintendo to the ground-breaking PlayStation 4, memorable games have been a part of gaming history.

As we all very vividly remember, Pokemon Go blew the online gaming and phone gaming world away in July 2016. Although the hype of the real world Pokemon experience has died down dramatically since the game dropped two years ago, it still has a great number of players who've either played since the beginning or have started between then and now. Either way you twist it, Pokemon Go has had two very strong years of gameplay/downloads in both the Google Play App store and Apple App Store. And we can't disagree with those numbers when you think about their new releases such as the "Celebi and Mew Research Quests," the recent update that gave its users the ability to trade and add each other, and their monthly Community Day events. Their last community day fell this Saturday, September 22nd. The next Community Day will fall on October 21, 2018.
The new Pokémon games for the Nintendo Switch were announced a few months ago, however there are new features being announced each month and the game is now vastly different from the original Pokemon Yellow that they are based off.
