'''Pokémon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition''' (Japanese: '''{{j|ポケットモンスター ピカチュウ}}''' ''Pocket Monsters: Pikachu''), often known as '''Pokémon Yellow Version''', is the third Pokémon game for [[Game Boy]] released worldwide, as a [[core series|solitary version]] of [[Pokémon Red and Blue Versions]]. In Japan, the game was the fourth Pokémon game released, as a second solitary version of {{game|Red and Green|s|Pocket Monsters Red & Green}}. Unlike other games, Pokemon Yellow was inspired by the {{pkmn|anime}}.
On November 12, 2015, a [[Nintendo Direct]] announced that Yellow will be released in Japan, North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand on February 27, 2016, the [[Pokémon 20th Anniversary]], for the [[Nintendo 3DS]] [[Virtual Console]].
Similar to Red and Blue, Yellow arrived towards the end of the Game Boy's lifespan. It managed, though, to receive the title of second best-selling non-bundled game for its console, losing only to its predecessors.
