Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition, simply referred to as Pokémon Yellow, is the third installment in the international Pokémon franchise and the fourth in the Japan releases. It is only for GB. Pokémon Yellow is notable as it is the first of the series to allow Pokémon to walk alongside the player character, as well as having an Electric-type Pokémon being the starter Pokémon, as opposed to a Water-type, Fire-type, or Grass-type,

Pokémon Yellow is very similar to its predecessors, using the same locations and sequences of them, however, Pokémon Yellow expands upon the basis of the original pair to become more similar to the anime series. Much like Ash Ketchum's adventures in the Kanto region, the player character begins the game with a Pikachu, who grows more fond of the character over time and refuses to return to its Poké Ball, and has frequent run-ins with Jessie, James and Meowth. Additionally, the starter Pokémon of the original pair, Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle, can all be found in-game. Charmander is received from a poor trainer, Bulbasaur is received from nurses and Squirtle is received from Officer Jenny after defeating Lt. Surge in the Vermillion City gym.
