Enhancements and Changes
Ash and Pikachu

An enhanced remake of Pokemon Red and Blue, Pokémon Yellow features several enhancements and changes fromt he originals. Pikachu is the only available Pokémon to start with, and he is given both a voice and a personality unique from other Pokémon. Pikachu follows the player on the overworld, and can be examined by speaking to it. While it initially has an indifferent opinion of the player, it can grow to love or hate him based on the player's actions; leveling up will keep Pikachu happy, while fainting frequently will make it unhappy (this enhanced feature would be used again in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the remakes of Pokémon Gold and Silver).

Yellow Version surfing

There is an area that features a "Surfing Pikachu" mini-game. In order to play it, players must have a Pikachu who can learn "Surf", a Water-based attack. At the time, players could only accomplish this by winning a contest to get a "surfing Pikachu". However, if players use their Pikachu from Yellow in Pokémon Stadium and beat a certain mode under the proper circumstances, they are rewarded with the Surf ability, which can be used both in battle, out of battle, and in the above mentioned mini-game. Pokémon Yellow can also print Pokédex entries onto stickers using the Game Boy Printer.
