These {{Role Playing Game}}s, developed by Creator/GameFreak and published by Creator/{{Nintendo}}, spawned a [[CashCowFranchise multi-billion dollar franchise]] rivaling the ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]'' series (which of course is also published by Nintendo), and indirectly caused the proliferation of Western broadcasts of {{anime}}, along with ''Franchise/DragonBall'' and ''Franchise/SailorMoon''. ''Pokemon'' went on to become the [[http://vgsales.wikia.com/wiki/Pokemon highest-grossing]] entertainment media franchise of all time, surpassing not only ''Mario'' and ''Zelda'', but even ''HarryPotter'' and ''StarWars''.
