Building on the terrific success of Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version, Pokémon Yellow returns Trainers to Kanto for even more fun and adventure. And in Pokémon Yellow, Pikachu actually follows you around throughout your journey! The graphics for Pokémon Yellow are updated slightly from Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue. Pokémon Yellow also introduces challenges and battle modes that let you compete in exciting ways. There are even great Pokémon minigames to play, such as Surfing Pikachu!
You begin your journey in Pallet Town as a young boy. After a dangerous brush with wild Pokémon, Professor Oak teaches you how to capture Pokémon, and then sends you on your way as a fledgling Trainer. During your journey through Kanto, you must capture Pokémon to record their information in your Pokédex, as well as become a better Trainer by competing in Gyms scattered throughout the region. Once you've proven your mettle as a Pokémon Trainer, it's time to take on the Elite Four, a crack group of Trainers that will put all of your learned skills to the test.
Your journey will be far from easy. In addition to the many Trainers and wild Pokémon you'll encounter along the way, you'll also have to be watchful of Team Rocket, a despicable group of Pokémon thieves. Prevent Team Rocket from stealing rare Pokémon and stop their criminal ways!
