Even "Super Mario Bros." couldn't top Pokemon
5 July 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From the B&W screen of Pokemon Red Version & Blue Version to the TV screen of the N64 for Pokemon Stadium 2, Pokemon has been the best game from Nintendo sinse Super Mario Bros. It has had more sequels in three years than most of the other popular video games have ever had! Two thumbs up!
