Pokemon - Yellow Version (USA, Europe)GBC
Pokemon Yellow was the third pokemon game (not counting the japanese Green version) to be released on gameboy/gameboy color. It was mostly similar to red and blue, but it featured colors, and lots of references to the pokemon anime. The first thing you'll notice if you've played blue or red, is that you can only get pikachu as a starting pokemon. Moreover, that pikachu will travel outside of his/her pokeball, and follow you around, just like in the anime. This simple change has a somewhat big impact on the begining of the game, since the first gym is rock type pokemon. And rock type are immune to electricity... So don't expect to win this one with pikachu... The only efficient method of beating Brock I've found is raising a butterfree, from either a caterpie or a metapod. Butterfree learns confusion, which is probably the only pokemon move available to you you, this early in the game, that can hurt reasonably well rock pokemons. However, after the harsh begining, the game rewards you ! In Cerulean city and Vermillion, you can obtain the 3 starter pokemons, charmander, bulbasur, and squirtle ! Another thing to note, is the appearance of Jessie and James, the two inept team rocket grunts, along with their signature pokemons and meowth. They aren't much of a challenge though. All in all, pokemon yellow is an interesting game for those who have already played blue or red before, but newbies might find the initial difficulty to be somewhat a turn off.
