A lot has happened in the past 20 years of Poké-history, and now we have it conveniently summarized for us in nine info-packed minutes.

Can you believe that it was 20 long years ago when RPG sensation Pokémon first came out? Just take a second to work out how old you would have been on the day it launched. The beauty of Pokémon, however, is that it is a true trans-generational favorite—nowadays it wouldn’t be out of the question to see a parent and their child chatting away about the finer details of the game/anime/world-power, as if the two of them got into it at the exact same point.

Producer FootofaFerret and YouTuber The Game Theorists break down the history of the world’s most popular video game starting with its creators, Game Freak, when it was still a magazine about video games.

The video moves through the released games one by one (or really two by two, as they’re usually released in pairs), including interesting facts and special releases along the way.

Here’s to many more years of Pokémon!
