    Pokemon Yellow GameBoy Cheats

    Although it is actually the same game as the recently released Pokemon - Red Version and Pokemon - Blue Edition, offers Pokemon - Yellow Version with Pikachu special edition enhancements that make it the best of all versions. In all three versions, players try to be the best Pokemon trainer in the world to be. Exploration and Pokemon battles (think here of an advanced type of rock-paper-scissors) make it a major part of the game. While the game world is identical in all three versions, the Pokemon you encounter vary from version version, the real goal, namely, all 151 Pokemon to collect, can only be achieved if you Pokemon players from other versions of the Link cable swap. (Players can also link-cable battle against each other).
