Nintendo Gameboy. Pokemon Special Pikachu EDITION.
While it's basically the same game as the previously released Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition features enhancements that make it the best version yet. In all three versions, the player is on a quest to become the World's Greatest Pokémon Trainer, with exploration and Pokémon battles (think advanced paper-scissors-rock) factoring heavily into the gameplay. While the game world is the same in all three versions, the Pokémon you encounter vary from version to version; the underlying goal of collecting all 151 Pokémon can only be met by trading Pokémon via Link Cable with another player with a different Pokémon version. (Players can also battle against one another using the Link Cable setup.)
Pokémon Yellow follows the TV cartoon series more closely than the other versions. Your first Pokémon in Yellow is Pikachu, and he travels alongside you as opposed to inside a Pokéball (like most Pokémon). Pikachu's mood can be displayed virtual pet style: keeping him happy is important, as his mood affects certain events in the game. In addition to the inclusion of other TV show elements like Team Rocket, new battle modes between players are available as well as a secret game called Pikachu's Beach.
If you haven't played any of the Pokémon games before, Pokémon Yellow is the best place to start. But while Pokémaniacs will go gaga over Yellow's new features, less enthusiastic veterans of Red and Blue may not find the extras to be quite so special. --Joe Hon

+Pikachu follows you around!
+You can get 4 starter pokemon (if you count pikachu)
+Pikachu also makes faces and noises depending on your friendship with him and it was fun to see his opinion of you change throughout the journey.
+The team rocket duo Jesse and James make their appearance in the game and they battle you with pokemon the use in the cartoon/anime series.
+ pokemon sprites now actually resemble what they look like in the show.
-Item management is a pain
- PC box and storage is also really bad.
Overall it's a great game and if you still have a gameboy, gameboy color, gameboy advance, or a gameboy advance SP then you should give it a shot.
