If you’re a fan of the Pokémon universe and love the old-school Game Boy games, you’re probably familiar with Pokémon Blue. It’s a classic role-playing game that started it all for the game series. Published by Nintendo and developed by Game Freak, this game transported players to the magical region of Kanto, where the players are tasked with catching and training Pokémon. While the game has been around for a couple of decades now, sometimes even the most seasoned trainers could use a little extra help. That’s where our guide to Pokémon Blue cheats and codes comes in handy!
Pokémon Blue Premise
Pokémon Blue is set in the fictional region of Kanto, where players control a Pokémon trainer from an overhead perspective, navigating through the game’s world with a mission to master Pokémon battling. Your journey as a trainer isn’t only about showing your skills in combat, though. In addition to conquering the Indigo League by defeating its Gym Leaders, players try to catch them all by filling up their Pokédex with all 151 available Pokémon. To complete these objectives, you’ll explore various terrains, encounter wild Pokémon, and battle other trainers, gaining experience and evolving your Pokémon team along the way.
The design of the game also encourages interaction with others. Players can connect two Game Boy systems using a Game Link Cable, enabling them to trade and battle Pokémon with friends. These interactions are crucial because some Pokémon are exclusive to either Pokémon Red or Pokémon Blue, so trading is the only way to complete your Pokédex. In addition, battling against friends provides an exciting test of strategy, allowing you to see how your chosen team stacks up against others. Pokémon Blue offers a unique combination of single-player objectives and multiplayer interaction, which made it one of the most popular Game Boy games.
Pokémon Blue Characters
Pokémon is an adventure role-playing game that introduces a variety of characters throughout the journey in Kanto. The player character, known as Red, meets friendly healers, experts willing to help with the gameplay, and many, many other Pokémon Trainers willing to challenge them. The main characters of the game are the following.
Red: The protagonist of the game, also known as the Pokémon Trainer. The player can choose to name this character, but by default, he is called Red. He begins his journey in Pallet Town, aiming to become a Pokémon Master.
Professor Oak: This researcher gives the player their first Pokémon and Pokédex. Players use his expertise and help during the game’s adventures.
Blue: The player’s main competitor throughout their journey. Blue, also known as “Gary” in the anime, happens to be Professor Oak’s grandson. He always seems to be one step ahead and serves as a continuous challenge for the player. Blue, as the Champion, is also the final challenge of the Pokémon League.
Gym Leaders: These are the eight powerful trainers that the player must defeat to compete in the Pokémon League. They each specialize in a certain type of Pokémon and provide a badge and a TM (Technical Machine) when defeated. In order, they are Brock (Rock-type), Misty (Water-type), Lt. Surge (Electric-type), Erika (Grass-type), Koga (Poison-type), Sabrina (Psychic-type), Blaine (Fire-type), and Giovanni (Ground-type).
Elite Four: These are the ultimate trainers of the game. They are located in the Pokémon League and must be defeated consecutively. In order, they are Lorelei (Ice-type), Bruno (Fighting-type), Agatha (Ghost-type), and Lance (Dragon-type).
Team Rocket: A group of Pokémon criminals. Team Rocket members are troublemakers that appear along the player’s journey to provide challenges.
Nurse Joy: She’s not named in Pokémon Blue, but in subsequent Pokémon lore, the woman who heals your Pokémon at Pokémon Centers is known as Nurse Joy. She provides healing to your Pokémon for free whenever they’re injured.
