However, any of the 100 Pokémon introduced in those versions cannot be traded into Yellow, just like they can't be traded into the Red or Blue versions.


The graphics are considered by most to be an improvement over the original Red and Blue games'. Yellow was colorized to a limited extent – for example, the Pokémon's art is colored a single color for each Pokémon, and each city shades everything in its particular tint.

The game also had smaller changes to closer reflect the anime's first season.

Many of the Gym Leaders also had similar alterations as well.
