PokéROM is a series of collectible edutainment CD-ROMs made by Mattel, The Learning Company, and Basis Applied Technology. Each CD-ROM is in a bootable business card format for each Pokémon.

Availability[edit | edit source]

PokéROMs were released in 3 series: Movie, Premier, and Mystery. 20 discs in the Mystery series have been dumped. Discs in the Mystery series are the most rare because of The Learning Company ceasing to exist around the time of their release. Also, there are regional variants (such as French) that are missing as well.

All Movie and Premier discs have been preserved to Redump standards by a user named Aringon using a special drive called a Plextor. While preserving them, a collector contacted them saying they have all PokéROMs in existence (including the Mystery ones). The collector said they would buy a Plextor eventually (and does not want anyone else buying one for them), however it's unlikely to actually happen.

Anyone who has any mystery PokéROMs should join the VGPC Discord Server and contact Aringon#7510.

On February 5, 2022, Aringon added 19 Mystery PokéROMs to Redump that they purchased in an eBay lot, bringing the total count of Mystery discs to 20. The following day, they uploaded them to Archive.org.

On March 3, 2022, Aringon added the Sentret Mystery PokéROM to Redump that they purchased in an eBay auction from the same seller, bringing the total count of Mystery discs to 21. The same day, they uploaded them to Archive.org.

On November 18, 2022, Aringon added 6 Mystery PokéROMs to Redump that they purchased in another eBay lot, bringing the total count of Mystery discs to 27. On November 26, 2022, they uploaded them to Archive.org.
