What is Pokemon Yellow?

Prepare to journey into the world of Pokémon with Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition, an iconic adventure role-playing game that has captivated players for generations. Originally released for Nintendo's Game Boy Color emulator, Pokémon Yellow takes players on a thrilling journey through the Kanto region, where they'll embark on a quest to become the ultimate Pokémon Trainer. With its charming graphics, engaging gameplay, and beloved characters, Pokémon Yellow offers an unforgettable gaming experience that continues to delight fans worldwide.


In Pokémon Yellow, players take on the role of a young Pokémon Trainer who sets out on a quest to become the Pokémon Champion. The game features a 3rd-person top-down perspective, with three main screens: the Overworld, where players control the main character and navigate the world; the Battle Screen, where Pokémon battles take place; and the Main Menu, where players can manage their Pokémon, equipment, and gameplay settings.

Players utilize their Pokémon to battle other trainers' monsters in turn-based combat. When encountering wild Pokémon or facing off against other trainers, the game transitions to the battle screen. During battles, players can select from one to four moves for their Pokémon, use items to heal or enhance their Pokémon, switch active Pokémon, or attempt to flee from battle if necessary.

Each Pokémon has an HP (Hit Points) stat, which represents its health in battle. When a Pokémon's HP falls to zero, it is temporarily removed from the fight until its HP is restored using healing items or moves. Defeating opponents' Pokémon earns players XP (Experience Points), which allow their Pokémon to level up and become stronger. A Pokémon's level correlates with its physical stats, such as battle abilities and moves, making leveling up a crucial aspect of gameplay.
