Vote up the details you missed the first time around.

The Pokémon video game franchise has been going strong since Pokémon Red and Green hit store shelves in 1996. Since then, it's gone on to become the most profitable franchise of all time, spawning numerous games, animated series, and movies. One of the reasons Pokémon is so successful is due to the massive fan base that plays the games, time and time again.

Just like how fans notice details in their favorite video game movies, they also notice them in the games themselves. Each time someone plays their favorite Pokémon game, they tend to notice things they've never seen before. When that happens, they sometimes like heading over to Reddit's Gaming Details subreddit to post their findings. This list features the coolest details from Pokémon games that we never noticed before.
