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 discs have been preserved to Redump standards by a user named Aringon.
