Monopoly: Pokémon Kanto Edition is a special edition of the classic Monopoly game published and adapted for Pokémon by Hasbro. It is focused on the Kanto region. It is a remake of the 1999 edition, but based on Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen and Pokémon Origins rather than Red and Blue and the anime. It was released on September 15, 2014. An exclusive GameStop version including extra cards and tokens was later released in 2015.
