|In "Pokemon" Monopoly the hotels are called Poke Marts. What colour are they? ||"Pokemon" Monopoly
red. Poke Marts are large, red, transparent buildings. Poke Centers take the place of houses. Poke Centers are similar to Poke Marts, except they are small and blue. It takes four Poke Centers and the cost of one more Poke Center to buy a Poke Mart.
Ash and Pikachu. Trainer Battle cards take the place of Community Chest cards. The player draws a Professor Oak card on the spaces where Chance cards are drawn in the original Monopoly.
white. My game has two white dice. I've also heard that some versions have red dice.
Nidoqueen and Nidoking. Giovanni's Gym is the dark blue properties. Nidoqueen and Nidoking are two of the strongest Pokemon. Nidoqueen is $350. The cost of Nidoking is $400.
Poke Money. The Poke Money has the same values as dollars: 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 500. The symbol for Poke Money is a letter P with two horizonal lines on its stem. Both games have the same colour of money.
Seafoam Islands. Articuno, the icebird Pokemon, represents Seafoam Islands. It is in the same location as Water Works, and the same price.
Fire. Growlithe, Ponyta, and Rapidash replace Pacific Avenue, North Carolina Avenue, and Pennsylvania Avenue. They are the same price: $300 for each of the first two properties, and $320 for the third. The green properties are trainer Blaine's Gym.
Marvin Gardens. In 1995 Parker Brothers apologized to the residents of Marven Gardens for the misspelling. It was never changed on the board though.
Thanks for playing!
50 Billion Dollars. If only it were real! Each valued bill has a different color. The 500 is dark orange, the 100 is light tan, the 50 is blue, the 20 is green, the 10 is yellow, the 5 is pink and the 1 is white. There are 20 500's and 100's, 30 50's, 50 20's, and 40 10's, 5's and 1's.
World War II. The United States Army needed the extra metals to make bullets and guns to fight in the war. Did you know that escape maps, compasses, and files, were inserted into Monopoly game boards and smuggled into P.O.W camps inside Germany during World War II. Real money for escapees was slipped into the packs of Monopoly money. So Monopoly played a huge role in World War II.
$180. Baltic Avenue is the second lowest valued property on the board. It is good because it collects people's GO money.
1935. It came out in 1935 and remained unchanged until 1984 when the only thing that changed was the man in the middle. They never used to have him there but now he is. They also changed the slogan. It is not straight across anymore, it's on a slant. The coloring on the board also got better as time went on.
11. This was a hard question, right? I thought it was funny that not all of the properties end in "Avenue" They are St. Charles Place, St. James Place, Marvin Gardens, Park Place, Boardwalk, Reading Railroad, Pennsylvania Railroad, B&O Railroad, Shortline, Electric Company and Water Works.
32 Houses, 12 Hotels. If your are winning really B-I-G you run out of hotels. The houses are green and the hotels are red. Parker Brothers makes about 100 million little green houses each year!
$15140. All that cash and there are always way too many 50's and 20's and never enough 100's!

A Night at the Tropicana. On this square, there is a picture of Ricky with his hat in one hand, performing a number at his nightclub.
"California, Here We Come!". This same cheery picture is on all of the money, as well.
6. Instead of being an iron or a top hat, you can be a "Vitameatavegamin" bottle, Ricky's conga drum, Ricky's hat, a Cadillac convertible, a wine press, or a loving cup.
