Throwback Thursday: Pokemon Yellow


Throwback Thursday: Pokemon Yellow

I started playing Pokemon when I was around 13 or 14, I started with Diamond. I got Pokemon Yellow when it was released on the 3DS e-shop and boy was I in for a surprise. That game has been kicking my ass, also starting with a Pikachu is hard.

I know, I know I sound like a pre-mature gamer but man did I underestimate Pokemon. It took me at least 2 hours to get my team up to beat Brock. To be honest with you people of the internet, I haven’t played in a while, not because I got discouraged or bored, I got distracted by other games.

If you are thinking about playing Pokemon Yellow, here are some tips to beat the first gym:

  • Don’t waste money, get potions though
  • Get Mankey from the path leading to the Pokemon League and level it up to learn low kick
  • Get a Caterpie and evolve it all the way to Butterfree to learn Confusion
  • Ratatta is actually good (if it learns quick attack or if you want to waste a lot of time, hyper fang at level 14)
  • So is Pidgey (if it learns gust)
  • Level up Pikachu too cause you’ll need it for the second gym

To be honest though I OP’d (overpowered), my Pokemon and did the gym really easily but ignored my Pikachu and since Misty (water) is next that was a bad idea.

My team is:

  • Pidgey (named Gust)
  • Nidoran
  • Butterfree
  • Pikachu (named Spark)
  • Mankey (named Taz)

and I’m searching for my 6th.

Between now and next Thursday, I’ll hopefully be to the second gym or farther and I’ll update you guys more 🙂
