Generation I

no edit summary
Two battle arena games were released in this generation: the mostly-incomplete [[Pokémon Stadium (Japanese)]], which went unreleased outside of Japan and only allowed use of 42 Pokémon, and the improved {{eng|Pokémon Stadium}}, which featured several special battle modes and a [[Gym Leader Castle]] where players could take their fully-trained teams for matches against the Kanto [[Gym Leader]]s, [[Elite Four]], and {{pkmn|Champion}}.
The games proved popular enough that, eight years after their original release, they received [[remake]]s in the form of {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, as the original versions are incompatible with [[Generation III]] and onward. Pokémon Yellow received a remake twenty years after its original release in the form of [[Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!]].
The storyline of the [[Kanto]] region is contemporaneous with the [[Hoenn]] story of [[Generation III]], as revealed by details in both the Hoenn-based games as well as the {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s|later remakes}} of Generation I. The storylines of the [[Generation II]] and [[Generation IV]] games occur three years after this generation, with details about this link explicitly noted throughout the [[Johto]]-based games.
