It may be of note to mention that Pokémon Yellow has a special feature that sets it apart from Red or Blue versions. In some rare cases, your Pikachu may be able to learn the move Surf, and if it can, you can access through it a minigame where you let your Pikachu surf across the waves on the shoreline of Fuschia City. Neat!

If you wish to place a bid on this beautiful copy of Pokémon Yellow Version, please kindly remember that you have until Tuesday, July 13th at 7:50 PM Central Time, or 8:50 PM Eastern Time, to do so.
