Title
Why would you give me the worst possible starter in the entire franchise
Pikachu is fucking awful and the game is just red and blue which is literal gen 1 garbage. Don't @ me gen wunners.

Title
Ok but outclassed
it's not bad by any means, but it is completely outclassed by Red and Blue version in every way. Definitely worth a try if you are a huge pokemon fan, if not, I would stick with Red and Blue or some of the games that came after.

Title
Little yellow mouse
Pokemon Yellow is pretty much the special version of Pokemon Blue/Red. You start off with Pikachu but you are given the possibility to get the other 3 starters. As a counter balance, now there are a couple of pokemon that would be found on the wild that cant be captured on this game. There are some minor sprites and level design changes, and on the whole the story follow more closely the story of the anime. The major example of this is the pikachu that follows you around, that cant be evolved or released.

All in all i do feel that its so similar that its essencially the same premise. I do feel that they way they implement the other starters into the story messes up a bit with the pacing, but other than that i feel its about on the same level as Red/blue.

    scaryness's review might be the worst on this site. I don't care if you think the game is bad but if you don't give a single actual reason why and spend the whole paragraph lambasting those who do enjoy it, then fuck off

      I had pretty much the opposite experience than that review. Back in the day I played Yellow and realized it was just Blue/Red all over again and stopped playing. I actually stopped playing Pokemon altogether as a series because of it until over a decade later. I finally played through it recently and had a lot of fun with it. More so than all the "new" Pokemon games I had also played at that time.

    this might be the only third/expanded version I don't feel is an actual straight upgrade over the original. Yeah it's got QoL changes to a couple of movesets, all starters and better battle sprites but that's really it, you don't exactly lose out on much by playing R/B as opposed to something like D/P vs. Plat where the latter fixes so many things for the better and highlights Sinnoh's strengths.

    This is a rare case of American box art > Japan's.

    I remember being like, 8 and having the guide for this but not the game. My friend had the game but he could never get past brock because even his level 17 pikachu couldn't beat an onix (for obvious reasons). Shout out to that guidebook - Brock is really only beatable by getting a butterfree because it learns confusion on evolution.
