    Elements like Jessie and James NOT having Meowth follow them and for them NOT to literally attack you at every turn. And yea, no Brock/Misty following you/helping you in battles. And Pikachu does NOT shock you arrogantly before you grow attached to it, it simply remains neutral in-game.

    But the fact that there even IS a Jessie/James duo and even having Giovanni's Rhydon/Kangaskhan replaced with a Persian was a neat twist. But Sabrina doesn't have a lone Abra when you fight her in-game; she has Kadabra and Alakazam as well, and evolving DURING a match, really? (Also applying to Koga's Vanonat in the anime as well, seriously, what??) Oh, and kids, if you watch the show first, you might be told (albeit in an implied fashion) that Haunter (or Gengar, but we're focusing on direct links to the show, meaning the ghost Ash actually caught) can somehow defeat Psychic types and not suffer that much consequence. .....I'm gonna get ranty here, because the show's writers apparently forgot about the fact that all Gen1 ghosts are ALSO COUPLE WITH THE POISON TYPE!!! So why even, in-game, go through the effort of raising a lv30-50 Gengar to fight Sabrina, when YOU WILL MOST LIKELY LOSE! That's right, kids, your favourite anime's writers are either not interested in the game, or out-right lied!!

    Moving on to my favourite part; the fact that Yellow is the only game.... That. Legitimately. Gives. You. ALL. THREE. STARTERS! A crazy concept at the time. (Sure, X/Y gives you a Kanto pokemon, and many such examples which would warrant its own post.) But, seriously, this means that you get to roam throughout Kanto with a Venusaur, a Charizard AND a Blastoise. Childhood me, high five!

    We may have individual points to criticize on both the anime and game, and no opinion is really wrong. (So long it's not a trollish 'Gen 1 is always superior/inferior!!') I've prolly forgot to outline a few crucial details, but I got a few of em down! :nod: Hope you learn a bit from my opinions. :wink-right-eye: And thx for being awesome!

      Yellow is kinda like an odd in between for me.

      Technically, no.. Yellow isn't much like the anime either... some examples: a Team Rocket Meowth that plays no key role, anime locations like "Gringey City" lacking in Kanto game map... little things like Misty and her Togepi, etc... but then they did make "Ash's" Pikachu behave simular to the cartoon.
      Still, I'd hardly say Yellow qualifies as a "manga version", but still is closer than blue/red/green in that respect.

        In Red/Blue/Yellow, "Ash" receives Eevee in Celadon City. It's in the building w/ back entry stairway, in the tiny classroom on the rooftop. Eevee is in the pokeball on the classroom desk.

        edit... don't rat me out for double posting...

            ok you didn't mention that till now... instantly assumed you must mean English version and not pre-international release.
            Idk what the deal is w/ JPN original, beyond foolishly buying a green cartridge many years ago w/ the idea of making the game more challenging for myself by not being able to read/comprehend anything. Can't remember much from those runs tbh because i couldn't read/comprehend anything in that game.

            Technically, the "hero" in all of 1st Gen is modeled after Ash... just not a very good in-depth representation of it.

              No, it's the other way around. Ash is based on Red, the player character of Red/Green/Blue.

              Yellow is a version of the original game, but based on the anime. So you could say that the player character of that version in particular is 'Ash'.

                Either way, still not a very good representation of it in general... they did an ok job with tag along Pika (in the like of the anime). But beyond that, still not very good.

                  That would require a new game entirely. It has enough unique details to associate it with the anime, which was the intention. Pikachu as a starter, Team Rocket duo, teams changed to the ones in the anime, etc...

                  Personally, never really liked or cared for Yellow. I'd rather play the proper entry than an anime tie-in.

                        Then again, they are fan translators.

                          Yeah, but some fna translators do a terrific job on translating japanese only game

                          Going slithly offtopic, the fantranslated Pokemon Silver confused Flaafy with Skiploom

                          Also they called the legendary beasts "dogs", unless Raikou is somehow a 10% dog like Eeveelutions, i don't see it
