Pokémon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition is now available for systems in the Nintendo 3DS family! The game remains true to the original, complete with monochromatic pixel art and 4-bit background music, so you can feel as though you’re experiencing the game just as it was back then!
This title is compatible with wireless communication for the first time ever. In the days of the Game Boy, players had to use a Link Cable to connect with friends, but this game uses the Nintendo 3DS system’s wireless capabilities to allow you to trade and battle Pokémon in just the same way. Pokémon Bank is also now compatible with Pokémon Yellow, allowing you to transfer the Pokémon you’ve caught to the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon video games!
Using Pokémon Bank, you'll be able to transfer Pokémon you've caught in the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow into your copy of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon. Pokémon from Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y can also be brought into Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon in the same way.
Visit the Pokémon Bank page for important details on the planned update to support Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.
Building on the terrific success of Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version, Pokémon Yellow Version returns Trainers to Kanto for more even more fun and adventure. Pokémon Yellow delivers a feature that hasn't been duplicated in any other Pokémon game-Pikachu actually follows you around throughout your journey!
The graphics for Pokémon Yellow are updated slightly from Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, and you can use innovative peripherals such as the Game Boy Printer, which allow you to print out stickers of your favorite Pokémon. Pokémon Yellow also introduces challenges and battle modes that let you compete in exciting ways.
