Pokémon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition - Wata 9.8 A++ Sealed [Solid ESRB, 100% Fiber] GB Nintendo 1999


Currently the sole finest third print copy of Pokemon Yellow graded by WATA. An A++ seal and 9.8 box grade from WATA combine for virtual perfection on this stunning high-grade copy which reveals no imperfections upon a close in-hand inspection.

While it's hard to know exaclty which of the four Pokemon Yellow variants saw the smallest print run, it's very possible this is indeed the lowest print variant. As of the August 2022 WATA population report the third print, of which this copy is a part of, is lagging substantially behind other variants with only 13 sealed copies graded in total among 212 total sealed copies graded for the title overall. A seldom seen instance of ultra high grade combining with a more difficult to locate variant on a timelessly popular game.


About Pokemon Red Blue & Yellow

A mega franchise that spans across every pocket and crevice of popular culture including video games, trading cards, movies, and merchandise, the Pokemon series got its start domestically in 1998 with the dual release of Pokemon Red and Blue. Originally released in Japan as Pocket Monsters: Red and Green, this overhead perspective RPG challenged players to collect and do battle with 151 unique original Pokemon. Pokemon Yellow followed soon thereafter in North America in 1999 and included the ability to pick the lovable Pikachu as your starter Pokemon. Selling a staggering forty-six million copies worldwide, the original entries into the Pokemon franchise are without a doubt among the most popular video games of all time.

Collectors hoping to pick up graded copies of Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow have a multitude of options and price points due to each game having 3-4 different variants, which vary in scarcity and availability. An ideal starter set of Pokemon games means simply acquiring one of each of the three games, although many advanced collectors seek to collect every known major variant. Whether just getting into video game collecting or building an advanced collection, Pokemon games have universal appeal and are likely to remain some of the most sought after video games ever produced.
