Dataminers have found a Pokémon Pink buried in the source code for Pokémon Yellow, intimating that the game was intended to be a companion to Yellow (via Nintendo Life).
Dr Lava is a prolific Pokémon dataminer, spotlighting pocket monsters that were lost to time and translating original Japanese developer notes into English. Their latest discovery is that of a Pokémon Pink, hidden in the leaked source code for Pokémon Blue and Pokémon Yellow, and it’s “almost certainly legit.” The version may have been a companion game to Pokémon Yellow, before it was binned.
One of the dataminers theorised that Pokémon Pink would have been targeting “girl gamers,” and might even have had a female protagonist. Pokémon Crystal was the first game to ask the player if they wanted to use a male or a female avatar, and Pokémon fans are curious what became of the planned Pokémon Pink version. Though Yellow was released more than twenty years ago, it’s stunning that new discoveries about one of the biggest franchises are still being found today.
