Pokémon Yellow, for many longtime players of the Pokémon franchise, was their first foray into the world of catching, training, and battling with the titular creatures of the games. In Yellow Version specifically, the innovation of having your Pikachu companion join you in the overworld of the game was a huge draw-in for fans, namely because of the animated television series that accompanied the games. Fundamentally, this game is roughly the same as Pokémon Red or Pokémon Blue but was historically more difficult because players were given only the choice of a Pikachu at the game's opening, a defensively-weaker creature than, for two examples, Bulbasaur or Squirtle. However, this game was beloved by a great many people for its novelty factor.

From the auction listing on Heritage Auctions' website:

Overall a beautiful Wata 9.0 with plenty of eye appeal to spare! This is the first of the "enhanced" installments released in the Pokemon series. Though quite a number of copies of this title exist in sealed condition, there are not nearly enough to meet the ever-increasing demand for it, and this is especially true for copies as well-preserved as this one.
