Things to Know If You're Playing Pokemon Yellow for the 1st Time
(Most of these apply to Red and Blue, as well)
-Gotta talk to your Pikachu every once in a while.
-DON’T. Lose. To. Eevee. Pikachu takes that very personally.
-Your bag is tiny. Gone are the days where you could stuff every single thing you find in there.
-ALWAYS remember how much space you got left in your PC box. Yes, you absolutely must switch them MANUALLY before you go out on a trip, otherwise you’ll get to the legendaries and miss out on catching them because the stupid box is full. Yes, this happened to me.
-Pokemon capture - especially the rare ones - is hardest in Red, Blue and Yellow. I’m not kidding. Particularly the legendaries. Catching Pokemon in X and Y is effortless by comparison.
-Got an ITEMFINDER? Congratulations. Unless your superior eyes can see things beneath the infrared wavelength, that device is useless.
-The EXP share is about the most annoying item you will ever collect in this game. Why? I won’t spoil that one for you.
-For a particular reason… the hardest gym leader you’ll come across is ironically the very first one - Brock.
-Get enough Repels for when you visit the caves if you don’t want a nervous breakdown. Why? Zubat. How? You’ll see.
-Yellow is the only Pokemon game where you canNOT evolve your Pikachu into a Raichu. The only way to do so, is to trade that Pikachu away.
-If you lose any battle, you lose one half of your money. It’s a shark tank out there in RBY
-GOOD LUCK FINDING THE GODDAMN ELEVATOR KEY.
