It’s Sunday, and while we haven’t had the chance to post a new Gaming History You Should Know in a few weeks, it wasn’t due to a lack of great content being available, it was more because Sundays became really busy for me as of late. If you’re new here, this series highlights some of the best independently produced original gaming documentaries from across the web.

As we’ve previously reported, the Pokémon franchise is a multimedia powerhouse, but the company who originally created the game that brought it to the world came from very humble beginnings.

YouTube Legend Tamashi, known for her reviews of the Pokémon games, created this incredible television-length documentary about the history of the company who would go on to create Pokémon, Game Freak. She’ll tell you about where the company came from, and do a review of their very first game for the Famicom, err, Nintendo Entertainment System.

Tamashi has really outdone herself with this one. I totally recommend checking out her YouTube channel, because she does some great game reviews.
