Character summary

This is Yellow's Pokédex information and party at the end of this volume.

Yellow's Pokédex

  • Gym Badges: 0
  • Pokémon seen: 20
  • Pokémon owned: 6


  • In the VIZ Media second edition of Volume 3, the "next volume preview" page's cover artwork for volume four does not match the artwork used in the final version.


VIZ Media first edition

  • Experience points are incorrectly named "Number."

VIZ Media second edition

  • On the "main characters" page, all of the Gym Leaders are all labelled incorrectly. Brock is identified as Lt. Surge, Misty is identified as Koga, Erika is identified as Sabrina and Blaine is identified as Giovanni.
  • The same page also has Green's Blastoise wrongly translated as Squirtle.

Translation edits

  • In the VIZ Media first edition as well as The Best of Pokémon Adventures: Yellow, Cloystered is split into two rounds - "Cloystered" and "Raging Rattata".
  • In the VIZ Media second edition the Jynx on the back cover was altered from its original, changing its original black design to the current purple one. This is likely due to the controversy surrounding the character.
    • This change was also reproduced in more recent Japanese reprints, although with a different shading.
