Battle and trade Pokémon wirelessly with your friends!
With enhanced color graphics and Pikachu by your side, Pokémon Yellow Version stays true to the original game released nearly 20 years ago. You'll feel like you're playing it just as it was, but you can trade and battle Pokémon using local wireless on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems! Revisit Pokémon Yellow Version or play it for the first time!
Experience one of the original adventures that began the Pokémon phenomenon, but now on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems! Set out on your adventure together with your friend Pikachu, complete with monochromatic pixel art, 4-bit background music and, for the first time in the series, enhanced color elements. You'll take on the role of a Pokémon Trainer and travel across the land searching for Pokémon with Pikachu. Catch, battle, and trade as you work to become the best Pokémon Trainer! If you want to catch all of the Pokémon, you'll need to trade wirelessly with your friends who have Pokémon Red or Pokémon Blue Version.
