Core series
The games can be grouped into eight [[generation]]s. The defining point of where a new generation begins is when a new [[core series]] Pokémon game is released with a large set of new Pokémon in its [[Pokédex]]. Games are also split between core series games and spin-off games. In most core games, the {{player}} can choose one out of three Pokémon to start their journey with. Spin-off games give players various options in the way they both obtain and make use of Pokémon.
 
As of September 2019, over 346 million game units have been sold.<ref>[https://www.pokemon.co.jp/corporate/en/services/ Business Summary|The Pokémon Company]</ref>
