Pokemon Blue is one of the first installments in the Pokemon video game series and was released in 1996 for Game Boy. In this game, you start your Pokemon trainer journey in Pallet Town and learn how to capture a Pokemon from Professor Oak. If you don’t want to start with Bulbasaur or Charmander then you can choose cool water-type Pokemon Squirtle and capture a lot of amazing Pokemon on the way.
On your journey, you will need to collect information about all the 150 Pokemon in the Kanto region in your Pokedex. For this, you will need to trade Pokemon with your friends playing Pokemon Red. Apart from that, you will need to capture and train Pokemon so that you can beat the gym trainers and get badges so that you can face the Elite Four.
Apart from that, you will also have to face wild Pokemon and stop Team Rocket who is out to steal rare Pokemon.
What is a ROM?
One of the commonly used types of non-volatile memory in electronic devices and computers, a Read-only Memory (ROM) is used to store content that cannot be altered after the memory device has been manufactured. This type of memory is capable of storing software that don’t require any changes and is often used in video game cartridges as well to play the game on programmable devices.
A ROM emulation is a method in which the data stored on a ROM chip can be copied and saved to a storage device like a hard disk. With the help of a ROM emulator, gamers can play a game ROM on a different device and share it easily with other users too. This is primarily used for games that are old and aren’t being manufactured anymore.
What Game emulator to use to run this ROM?
To play Pokemon Blue ROM on your PC or mobile phone, you will need to download a Gameboy Color (GBC) Emulator first. If you want to run the game on your PC, you can use BGB 1.5.3, BasicBoy, TGB Dual, RetroArch 1.7.5, etc. for Windows PC and Open Emu or Retro Arch for Mac.
