    I used this trick to get inverted colours back in the day. Did not need flash for to get to Lavender because the dark becomes light.

      I'm guessing no 'cause Yellow was a GBC game, so it was alredy in "full" colour (it just made the towns and routes colour-themed, e.g. Cerulean was blue...). But I haven't tested it on the 3DS versions so I can't say for sure. All I know is it didn't work on the original.

    On a Gameboy Color did any of you guys hold B/A+D-Pad to change the color pallet before starting? B+Right was my favorite as a kid because it made it a negative.

      I used to trick people in thinking I had a special "One-of-a-kind" negative version of tetris by doing that

      Nice! Never thought of doing that before. Coulda probably tricked someone into trading unwanted games for Pokemon cards or something.

    Am I crazy or did Pokemon Blue/Red actually have color if played in a Gameboy Color?

      Not crazy, but also not quite correct. All games had color of a limited sort on the GBC, that being it would replace the 4 color palette of the original Game Boy with a different 4 color palette that wasn't greyscale.

      it kinda did and it annoys me that that isnt an option for the virtual version, i know for a fact yellow had full color and it was on classic gameboy

      Fun Fact: The colors of different towns in the original Pokemon games were the color from their name. Cerulean was blueish, Fuschia was pinkish, etc. http://tinyurl.com/jlvsohy

      I see. I thought that may be the case. Why can't they have that option for the relaunched titles then?

    Alright, but can you make it do the red or blue shading like the gameboy color would depending on the version of the game you had?

    You guys should do a Let's Watch with Ryan or Geoff playing Pokemon for the first time. Have Michael and other Pokemon fans like Miles and Kerry laughing and cringing in the background! I bet it would be hilarious!

    Make it a sponsor video on the site so it won't get taken down by Nintendo.
