Now that I no longer have the Pokédex, I can’t hit the “cancel” button. I can’t stop you from evolving after battles ever again. But we’re going to stop Lance! All of you, please…lend me your power! The power to protect the world!
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.
