For parents who are feeling in the dark about their child's fascination with Pokémon, the Monopoly Pokémon Edition is just the game to turn on their lights. By joining in this game of traditional Monopoly with a Pokémon twist, parents learn firsthand about the characters and stories of Pokémon. Instead of buying property, houses, and hotels, players collect Poké centers or gyms. Buying a space means catching a Pokémon character. Players who catch all the characters of a color earn the badge for that gym. Playing tokens are Pokémon characters. The board looks much like classic Monopoly, but it features a Pokémon map in its center. "Go To Jail" is still where you'd expect it, so some things never change. --Lee Strucker

Educational and Enjoyable...you needn't be a Pokemon expert! Jan 05, 2000
Santa brought this for my 7 year old. As a kid I HATED Monopoly and rarely played it. I do not know much about the beloved Pokemon, either, but you don't need to know anything! We just loved this game. The games lasted 4-5 hours and the kids (7&10) sharpen their math skills with money counting and learn how to handle money on an adult level without even knowing it. You can shorten the game...but we never wanted to. It sure doesn't seem like the boring old Monopoly I remember as a kid. My 7 year old still crys when he has to mortgage property or lose a favorite Pokemon due to a competitor rolling double sixes but he always wants to play again! Nice family game!

pokemon monopoly Jan 04, 2000
My 8 year old son bought this game with money that he got for xmas and I ended up giving him half of the money back because after we played it,we all had so much fun we decided it would be a good game for family game night. Now we play it almost on a daily basis with him and he is learning to manage money (as good as you can at 8)and he has fun doing it. Thank You Parker Brothers for making this one.

Pokemon monopoly Jan 24, 2000
I think the game is great,its monopoly with a twist of Poke'mon. The spaces are made up of all differn't types grass to fire to water. I love the specials for doubles,so over all I think its the best monopoly game ever

My sons LOVE Pokemon Monopoly! Dec 29, 1999
My son placed this item on his wish list for Christmas and was delighted to have received it from a friend. I was skeptical, since they already had Monopoly, and Jr. Monopoly. Boy was I WRONG! They ADORE this set! I have played it a few times with them and find the game refreshingly different from the mundane rules of the original monopoly.

Pure Fun Feb 11, 2001
By stephen Garry
The pokemon edition of monopoly has got to be the best version that i have played. The concept of the game is more or less the same as the original. Instead of buying property you have to catch pokemon of the same colour, once you have collected all of the pokemon of one particular colour you earn a badge. Once you have a badge you can build a gym or a pokemon centre. (instead of houses and hotels) This version of pokemon will appeal to all ages even those who were't fans of the original as this game is so much fun
