After the announcement of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon they Re-Released the original 3 Pokemon games on the Nintendo 3DS these titles are:

  • Pokemon Blue
  • Pokemon Yellow


Pokemon 3DS


There is no graphic enhancement or alterations to these classics games, they are now able to be played on the Nintendo 3DS from purchasing a digital copy from the E-Shop on the Nintendo 3DS Console. On the console they use the ‘Virtual Console’ feature within the 3DS to emulate the original games. The only difference to this release from the original on the ‘GameBoy’ console is the Wi-Fi capabilities to be able to Trade Pokemon and battle other players using the internet and no external cables are needed between two players.


These three classic Pokemon game were released on the 27th February 2016 worldwide, These games were also released in several languages such as:


  • English
  • German
  • French


Pokemon 3ds


These games are perfect for Pokemon fans to relive your childhood and get nostalgia from playing these old classic Pokemon games. The looks, plays and sounds just like it did on the original Gameboy console which came out in February 27, 1996 (Red & Blue) & September 12, 1998 (Yellow).


Each game cost £8.99/$9.99 and you could buy one or buy all three. Everyone would be different has in which of the three is the best but it is all down to preference as some people have only played one of the three and have never tried the others, however the only difference with them all is the starting Pokemon at the beginning of the game. Also in Pokemon Yellow is only game where the Pokemon ‘Pikachu’ is your starter Pokemon and follows behind you in your game.


Pokemon Red


Ultimately, if you have played any of the original three Pokemon games, I would recommend purchasing it, due to its video game nostalgia that brings back great memories from childhood or older memories. If you are a huge Pokemon fan or have only played the newer titles, these original releases brings the franchise back to its core and provides a fun, familiar feeling for the Pokemon games which is still and will always be loved by many.
