Pokémon (ポケモン Pokemon?, /ˈpoʊkeɪˌmɒn/ or /ˈpoʊkᵻˌmɒn/ – poh-kay-mon or poh-ki-mon) is a media franchise managed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese consortium between Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures. The franchise copyright is shared by all three companies, but Nintendo is the sole owner of the trademark. The franchise was created by Satoshi Tajiri in 1995, and is centered on fictional creatures called “Pokémon”, which humans, known as Pokémon Trainers, catch and train to battle each other for sport.

The franchise began as a pair of video games for the original Game Boy, developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo. The franchise now spans video games, trading card games, animated television shows and movies, comic books, and toys. Pokémon is the second-most successful and lucrative video game-based media franchise in the world, behind only Nintendo’s Mario franchise.

Cumulative sales of the video games (including home console games, such as Hey You, Pikachu! for the Nintendo 64) have reached more than 279 million copies. In November 2005, 4Kids Entertainment, which had managed the non-game related licensing of Pokémon, announced that it had agreed not to renew the Pokémon representation agreement. The Pokémon Company International (formerly Pokémon USA Inc.), a subsidiary of Japan’s Pokémon Co., oversees all Pokémon licensing outside of Asia.[8] As of May 2016, the Pokémon franchise has grossed revenues of ¥4.8 trillion worldwide[9] (equivalent to US$46.2 billion).

It is unsurprising that Pokemon Cards are still incredibly popular after the recent release of Pokemon Go has further reinforced the popularity of this major brand and also their cutting edge use of Technology in product development and implementation.

Silly Billy’s has stocked Pokemon Cards for a very long time, in fact they were first released in 1996 in Japan and Silly Billy’s started trading 1997, with America taking up the Pokémon Trading Card Frenzy in 1998 and release to Europe shortly afterwards Silly Billy’s was one of the First Retailers to stock Pokemon Cards right back in the beginning of Pokemon time.
A Pokémon Trading Card Game was developed by Media Factory with its own set of rules. The first set of cards was released on October 20, 1996, containing 102 cards, and became very popular.
The Trading Card Game was also introduced to North America on January 9, 1999 by Wizards of the Coast. The Electric Tale of Pikachu became the first Pokémon manga to be translated to English when VIZ Media started publishing it on September 28, 1999.

What can we say? PokemonGo as one of the first augmented reality games is pretty amazing. There is a lot  you can do within the PokemonGo game and many ways in which you can get involved.
On the plus side it encourages people to go out and walk, run or cycle and catch #PokemonGO where ever they may be. It’s interesting that Niantic have released the game for free and also free of ADs, this is a plus really. Although it has As I have some background knowledge in internet and application development I really do feel Pokemon GO is a very powerful app.
On the down side there have been stories of people falling off of cliffs and the like, which isn’t great.

Pokemon cards have been amazingly popular here at Silly Billy’s Toy Shop and we are the greatest retailer of Pokemon Cards in Hebden Bridge. We would obviously be very grateful if you could shop for your cards here as we are raising our own visibility post the flooding of Boxing Day.
The latest series “Fates Collide” has been one of the most popular collectors series yet.
PokemonGo - Fates CollideWe have plenty of card booster packs here at Silly Billy’s so if you are looking for Pokemon Cards then come down to Silly Billy’s Toy Shop today

The author has installed Pokemon GO on his phone and has played it, although as I am no gamer I did not particularly get into the game itself, though I am interested in other people’s experiences.

My daughter caught a Pokemon in Silly Billy’s Toy Shop the other day and I have applied to Niantic to make Silly Billy’s a PokeStop. There was also PokeGym on the Packhorse Bridge, close to our shop.

Overall I would say the development and release of PokemonGo is significant and heralds a new way of gaming incorporating augmented reality.
