Looking for Pokemon ROMs to play on your computer, tablet, or smartphone? Then you’ve come to the right place. LoveROMs has the widest selection of Pokemon ROMs available — all directly downloadable and ready to play.

Download links for all Pokemon ROMs can be found below, but if you’re unfamiliar with the Pokemon franchise, here’s a quick refresher.

Pokemon started out as a set of two video games released in 1996 in Japan for the original Game Boy — Pocket Monsters: Red and Pocket Monsters: Green. It wouldn’t reach the United States until 1998 when Green was swapped out for Blue and Pocket Monsters was shortened to Pokemon. Both games followed the same storyline, but with slight variations; for example, certain Pokemon could only be caught in one game or the other.

The Pokemon series turned out to be incredibly successful, and has spawned numerous spin-offs as well as direct sequels. Each new generation of official Pokemon games come in pairs, just like Red and Green, and takes you to a new region filled with new Pokemon. Six generations of official games have taken the world by storm — the most recent being Pokemon X and Y for the Nintendo 3DS. The most recent emulatable games, though, are Pokemon Black and White 2.

Black and White 2 were the first pair of games to just be a numbered sequel, rather than getting an entirely new cast of Pokemon and a new name. While the series started with Red and Green and the iconic starters of Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur, it evolved a few years later into Gold and Silver, featuring Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile. Next would be Ruby and Sapphire, followed by Diamond and Pearl, and then finally Black and White. Remakes have been made for Red and Green (FireRed and LeafGreen) and Gold and Silver (HeartGold and SoulSilver), and a remake of Ruby and Sapphire (Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire) is planned for late 2014.

Gameplay in the standard series is incredibly simple, allowing for even non-gamers to pick up a Game Boy and start playing. Your character, who you control from a third-person birds-eye view, starts off in their quiet hometown, only to be introduced to a Professor who will allow them to choose from one of three starter Pokemon: a fire type, grass type, and water type. From there, you travel the region with your Pokemon, battling and catching more Pokemon on your way. You’ll have a rival who will battle you from time to time, and an evil group who is trying to take over the world — but your real objective is to collect all eight gym badges and become a Pokemon master.

Pokemon has become insanely popular and branched off many times from the standard handheld gaming series. Several spin-off console games have been released, as well as hundreds of anime episodes and several movies. The most notable spin-off, however, is the trading card game, which even today amasses a huge following.

But with so many older Pokemon games not available for purchase anymore, many people turn to emulation. It is rare to find an old Game Boy with a working version of Pokemon Red, but it is super easy to download an emulator and a Pokemon ROM.

Emulating Pokemon games using Pokemon ROMs has actually brought a few enhancements to the series. Gamers can now have access to an unlimited library of Pokemon games on a single device. Load up all of your favorite Pokemon ROMs onto your smartphone, and it’s as if you’ve squashed together a Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo 64 all into one portable device. Plus, switching between games is easy and fast, you can have multiple save states at once for trying different routes, you can fast forward the gameplay to speed through boring conversations and walk quicker, and you can easily enable any cheats that you like.

Cheat codes became widely available for Pokemon games with the introduction of the GameShark in 1998. This device connected to your Game Boy and the Pokemon cartridge to allow for certain preloaded cheats to be activated, like walking through walls for instance. It made for lots of fun after you’d beaten the game and just wanted to play around, but most modern emulators have these GameShark codes built in. This way, you can take any Pokemon ROM and instantly enable or disable cheats as you go along, adding another dimension to the entertainment.

For true Pokemon fans, nothing beats these Pokemon ROMs. Take some time and play through your old favorite games, beat the gym leaders, and earn your title of Pokemon master all over again. It’s just as fun as you remember it.
