Kanto starters are already mentioned above, in "location changes" (CTRL+F "starter" to find it). || RubyLeafGreenCrystal, can you please be more clear with what you mean by this "direct translation" point? It doesn't seem to make any sense.
Much like beforein other [[Generation I]] games, players start their journey across Kanto from their hometown, Pallet Town, eventually defeating the eight Gym Leaders and the Elite Four. Unlike other games, the player starts off with a {{p|Pikachu}} and the rival with an {{p|Eevee}}, defeating the eight gym leaders and the Elite Four.
[[Team Rocket]] battles feature yet another special, anime-based surprise, as [[Jessie]] and [[James]] show up, along with their Pokémon, {{TP|Jessie|Ekans}}, {{TP|James|Koffing}}, and {{MTR}}. Beyond these changes, the plot of Yellow is very similar to that of the Japanese {{2v2|Red|Green}} and {{game|Blue| (Japanese)|Japanese Blue}} as well as of the {{game|Red and Blue|s|Western Red and Blue}}.
* If the player does not have {{PDollar}}500, they can still enter the {{safari|Kanto}}. The player will have to pay any money they do have and will receive a number of Safari Balls proportional to the amount paid (but at least one).
* {{m|Kinesis}} is given to {{p|Kadabra}} as its [[signature move]]. In the previous games, {{m|Kinesis}} was never used and the only way it might appear would be if randomly called by {{m|Metronome}}.
* Each Kanto starter can be obtained.
* A new mode, "Colosseum 2", was added to the [[Pokémon Center#Generation I|Cable Club]].
* It is the only localized game prior to [[Generation III]] to lack the [[Gotta catch 'em all!|slogan]] below the Pokémon logo.
* This is the only core series game influenced heavily by the anime.
* Pokémon Yellow is the first core series game to be directly translated as Pokémon Red, Green, and Blue were not directly translated.
* Pokémon Yellow is the only core series game in which the player cannot choose their own starter Pokémon, and whose starter is not {{t|Grass}}-, {{t|Fire}}-, or {{type|Water}}.
* Pikachu had its [[cry]] changed to that of its anime counterpart for this game. [[Junichi Masuda]] details the modification of [[Ikue Ohtani]]'s voice to a sound capable of being made by the low-tech [[Game Boy]] in his [ Director's Column]. However, Pikachu's original cry was used in some parts of the game.
