Even though I have Blue version downloaded on my 3DS, I feel much more motivation and drive to play Yellow version (that is, whenever I'm in the mood for it). Perhaps it's because I find it kind of fun to have Pikachu follow along with me, and I find the graphics a bit more visually pleasing than in Red and Blue.

But that's just me! Which do you guys prefer?

Hard wind blows as the night is born
And the dark feels so safe
My body yearns for that need to start
Cause it's too hard to wait
We're going out tonight with something to prove
Take to the streets and let our demons loose
Put your hands up

    I've played both and honestly I prefer Yellow. The feel of having your starter always following you around as opposed to a Pokeball is a refreshing change frankly. Throw in Jesse and James for Team Rocket, changing up the Pokemon for certain Gym Leaders(Lt.Surge for example has a single Raichu as opposed to several Electric Pokemon) and sprucing up the GFX sprites makes for a compelling Generation 1 game.

    Red/Blue. I don't particularly care much for the Pikachu that follows you. It's ok but like: it's Pikachu. It's the mascot of Pokemon... why must I conform?! Although there are a lot of benefits to Yellow... I just don't care for Pikachu lmao

    Yellow had a few improvements, visually and some other stuff too I think? I never played the original RB games (!!) so I'm not sure on the details. Basically it was an upgrade from the earlier games though, and I prefer that to the previous ones. Pikachu aside, you get all three other starters too!

      I prefer yellow version as well. On top of the graphics being more visually appealing, I love having my pick of which starters I want for my team. I usually don't do all three, usually depends on how I want my team to be spread. Regardless, yellow version has always been my favorite.

      You serious, bruh?

        There's really no reason to play RGB over Yellow (even though I've played all of them and have played Blue more than Yellow).
        Yellow has mini games, better sprites (for the most part), the ability to get all of the starters, harder trainers and more battles overall, and a better design for Cerulean Cave.
        Plus it's nice getting to walk with your Pikachu <3

          Definitely RB. I feel Yellow has a bit too much filler (?) for when I just want to play through a simple game without much interruption. The additions of Yellow feel a bit redundant to me and are only fun when I really feel up to it. Yellow also gives me less flexibility with creating a team because I don't have the heart to remove Pikachu from my team.

          Yellow gets a major plus for having better sprites, though.

            I'd take Yellow easily over Red & Blue.

            Better sprites and overall visually better, plus the idea of (only one, but still) Pokémon walking behind you which we only saw back in HGSS since.
