Pokemon Pink Rumored to Be Scrapped Companion to Pokemon Yellow

Recommended Posts



A rumored datamine alludes to a 'Pokemon Pink', which may have been planned as a companion piece to the 1998's Pikachu-focused Gen 1 spin-off, Pokemon Yellow.
The news arrives thanks to Pokemon Historian Dr. Lava, based on information posted in an archived thread on 4chan. Dr. Lava, who has documented a number of Pokemon leaks and datamines, called the information "almost certainly legit". On ResetEra, you can see a screenshot of the alleged leaked source code, with the header referencing a Pink and a Yellow version of the game.

It's thought that the information arrives from the same person or group that leaked the Spaceworld demo ROM (a prototype of Pokemon Gold and Silver) and a series of beta Pocket Monsters that were circulated back in 2018.

The Pokemon community has surmised that a Pokemon Pink would likely have featured Clefairy or Jigglypuff in the spotlight instead of Pikachu - Clefairy having been mooted as a potential mascot for the series before Pikachu's popularity, and Jigglypuff becoming popular due to the Pokemon anime.

Twitter user SnorlaxMonster noted in a reply to the original tweet that a Japan-Only Game Boy Camera frame once featured Pikachu and Clefairy standing side by side, but this was changed into a Wario Land design for the European release of the peripheral.
