WILD PIKACHU APPEARS!
While everyone else was sporting Blue, Red, and Green.
I had Pokemon Yellow. My Pikachu followed me around, he was amazing! I didn't have to go to the safari zone to get my little yellow friend.
Although, do you know how hard it is to beat the first gym trainer, Brock, with only a Pikachu?! Thunder < Rock. I still did it, and it was the happiest day in my 5th grade life. :)
