Pokemon Yellow: Nostalgic gem and timeless classic
Pokemon Yellow Version is the first Conglomerate game in the series, combining both Red and Blue versions here in the United States. The game follows the adventures of the famous Pokemon anime character: Ash and his beloved and loyal companion Pikachu. The goal is to collect as many Pokemon as humanly possible, and collect the eight gym badges to take on the Pokemon league.
For late 90's standards, this game is pretty advanced, but against today's standards, it's rather blocky and slow with odd graphics. Your starter Pokemon is Pikachu, so you don't have much of a choice, but you do have access to all three of the original starter Pokemon from Blue and Red. As per usual for Pokemon games, A is select, B is cancel, start opens the menu, and select does nothing. Which reminds me, you only have one compartment in your bag, so I'd suggest making great use of your PC boxes.
I'll admit that my first Pokemon game was Sapphire, released in 2003, but I do love this game for some odd reason. The world's most famous Pokemon is your starter, you can be whatever gender you want to be, and you still get to catch them all. Though some of the repetitive attacks are annoying, or your attacks miss more than once, this is a great game! I'd recommend this for both the nostalgic Pokemon child of the 90's, or any Pokemon new comer who is curious about its roots in the Nintendo world.
A fantastic five out of five for me :)Read full review
