Pokémon Storm Yellow: Special Thunder Edition is a remake of the original Pokémon Yellow for the New Nintendo 3DS and Riivolution Ultima; with several aesthetic and various other story additions, Storm Yellow probably rivals ORAS in the "drastic remake" category.


Changes from Pokémon Yellow

A much more drastic version compared the original, numerous changes were implemented to further ingrain a lot of important plot elements together well.

  • While Pikachu is the mascot for this version, a lot of changes come to both it and the rest of its evolutionary line.
    1. The Light Ball now grants its double Atk/Sp. Atk bonus to all the Pikachu line instead of just Pikachu.
    2. In the original Yellow, Pikachu would constantly refuse to evolve if handed a Thunderstone; it won't do that in this version: you can now evolve it in this.
    3. The house south of Fuschia City would be just a place with a secret minigame in the original Yellow; in this, it is now a Move Tutor house for the Pikachu line, because in this game, the Pikachu line can learn a new move from each type: Extreme Speed, Grass Knot, Flame Wheel, Surf, Volt Tackle, Rollout, Toxic Spikes, Mud-Slap, Ice Punch, Close Combat, Astonish, Dragon Tail, Fly, Signal Beam, Iron Tail, Nasty Plot, and Disarming Voice.
  • Team Rocket has a much more aggresive role in the story this time around.
    • On Mt. Moon in the maingame, instead of looking for Fossils to sell, Team Rocket are there looking for Key and Mega Stones so that Team Rocket may use Mega Evolution in their further goal.
    • In Vermillion City, you can see a pair of goons lurking around the docks that are implied to be a part of Team Rocket.
    • In their hideout at Celadon City Game Corner, Team Rocket researches the power inside the Mega Evolution and plans to use it to let them take control of the world.
  • The Gym Leaders (most of them) have much more active roles in the game:
    1. Brock can be seen at Mt. Moon investigating the rumors of Team Rocket sightings, and will team up with the player to fend off Jessie and James.
    2. Misty has the most appearances in the game so far: on Monday evenings she's seen admiring the view off of the Sea Cottage's cape, on Tuesday afternoons she's relaxing on Fuschia Beach, on Wednesday afternoons she's busy swimming a few laps in Vermillion pond, on Thursday afternoons she's fishing in the pool at Fuschia city, on Friday mornings she's seen training deep within Seafoam Caverns, and on Saturdays and Sundays she's seen relaxing at the Ember Hot Springs.
    3. Lt. Surge often pays visits to the abandoned Power Plant on Wednesday afternoons, just to make sure nothing is out of the ordinary.
    4. Erika often enjoys taking strolls in Viridian Forest on Monday mornings. 
    5. On Saturdays, Koga can be seen training his daughter on how to use Poison-type Pokémon, setting the stage for Gen 2's events.
    6. In the postgame, Lorelei is found in Four Island's Waterfall Cavern and teams up with the player to fend off the Team Rocket goons inside the cavern, and later helps drive them from their warehouse on Five Island.
    7. On Tuesday evenings, Agatha can be seen standing in south Pallet Town reminiscing about her and Professor Oak's younger days.
    8. During the maingame, Sabrina can be seen fending off the goons guarding the entrance to Silph Co. and later teams up with the player to defeat Jessie and James (y'know, AGAIN). 
    9. Blaine is found in the basement of Pokémon Mansion, lost in thought about what apparently happened there.
    10. Giovanni fills the role he has always filled in any Generation 1 game, being the boss of Team Rocket and the Viridian Gym Leader; although later, you find him training in a remote part of the Sevault Canyon.
