Pokemon Yellow

This is the original Nintendo Gameboy Color Pokemon Yellow game running in the JMEBoy Game Boy emulator for Java phones.  When the app starts choose the game and then press the softkey labeled Menu and choose Set buttons  to set up the keys you want to use.

The game doesn’t work on my Motorola Rambler or  Motorola i776  test phones.  BoostApps reader James tested it on his Sanyo Incognito and reports that its a little sluggish in spots but geerally runs well. If you try it on a different phone please leave a comment saying whether it works or not so I can update the supported phones list.

  1. it didnt work also on my i900 samsung.. what navigation do i have to use.?

    • On touchscreen only phones, a virtual keypad should appear at the bottom of the screen. If it doesn’t there may be an option in the phone’s app specific settings to enable the virtual keypad.

  2. I like this games

  3. Dennis why there’s nothing control pad

  4. How It To Instalk Ahhhh!!!!

  5. how to go jump code

  6. i cant downlaod… why?

    • Probably no paid data or your phone doesn’t support Java ME.

  7. whare is the “JAD”??

    • because i have’nt laod???

    • Yes

  8. very hard game,how can i beat the gym leader sabrina if theres a team rocket blocking the door?please Help guys.thanks for cooperations.

  9. Im download this game but dont acept in my gt s3533 samsung

    • Thanks for your report. I’ve added the Samsung gt s3533 to the post’s reported not working with list

  10. it works very gud in my nokia s40….

  11. It works fine on my iPhone 4. The only problem is that my sound for the game doesn’t work

    • How did you manage to do that? The iPhone doesn’t support Java ME apps like the ones on this site.

  12. I have a Sanyo Incognito, the application does not give me the option to continue a saved game. I save and exit from the menu, just like recently posted. On start-up it only gives me two options. New game and Options.

  13. Hey i downloaded this on my motorola ex124g touch screen phone when ever i use it it is super laggy and plays at about 3 to 5 frames per second is there a fix to this?

  14. How do i make the game save my progress on my LG Rumor reflex?

    • According to another BoostApps user, the trick is to exit Pokemon using its menu not the red end call key.

      1. Click Save Game in the pause menu.
      2. Click the right soft key and and click Exit Pokemon and wait for the game to exit.

      To resume a saved game, click Continue in the main menu

  15. Hey dennis long time no see i downnloaded pokemon yellow and when i played it about 5 times on the 6th time it started getting glitchy.i downloaded it for lg rumor reflex.

    • That might be due to memory corruption. Try taking the battery out of the phone for two minutes and then repalcing the battery and restating.
      If that doesn’t fix it, re-install Pokemon Yellow.

  16. Does this work for the iPhone?

    • No, it’s for non-smartphone that run Java apps.

  17. Does the sound work? The game works great! But no sound! How can I get the sound to work? HELP! I’m using the Sanyo Juno 2700.

    • The sound doesn’t work for me. I don’t think it works for amyone.

  18. How does it work for the sanyo incognito/i clicked the send thing after i put my phone number in

    • No, Send to phone is only for Motorola i Series phones. For the Incognito go to http://boostapps.com with your phone’s browser, click the “Enter jump code” link and enter this jump code: 6071. When the page loads click the JAD link to download and install the app.

  19. Thanks. That saving process worked. By the way, for the name entering thing, try reconfiguring the buttons. Don’t use the enter button for A, if you were, that made my phone flash off for a second but not letter was entered.

  20. Hey all you people havin trouble savin the game listen up and ill tyell you how. Firs of course you click save gam in poke mon pause menu. No here is the hard part…
    after its done saving do not i repeat DO NOT press the red end call button otherwise all that gaming goes to waste. Instead click the right soft key and scroll all the way down to the icon that says exit pokemon yellow. Click that and itll exit the game. Now to make sure it save reenter the game. When your at the main menu check if it says continue. If it does you did it correctly

  21. Works awsome on my incognito thank u so much for the game!!!

  22. I couldn’t get the game to save on my Innuendo, but I may have chosen the wrong keys to use on the keyboard set up anyway. Other than that, it works great with no apparent lag or slow framerates.

  23. Game didnt save on my Incognito. -_-

  24. I have an incognito and it works up until I have to put my name. The A button wont work. When I press it to choose a letter the screen turns white and it dosnt work…

  25. doesnt work on my motorola theory gives a java.lang.classdeferror or something of that nature

  26. It Works fine on my incongnito thanks dennis so much you rock 🙂 Can you put next a pokemon sappharire or ruby thanks
