Our Pokemon Blue, is Japan's Pocket Monsters Green. Our Pokemon Red, is Japan's Pocket Monsters Red. Our Pokemon Yellow, is Japan's Pocket Monsters Pikachu. Meaning, that Japan's Pocket Monsters Blue, has no American equivalent, correct?
So, let me get this straight. I've technically been playing Pokemon Green ALL THESE YEARS, and never knew it? --- My Systems: Turbografx-16; NES; SNES; Sega Genesis (Model 2); Genmobile; N64; Gamecube; Wii; GB; GBC; GBA; GBA SP; DS Lite; DSi; PSX; PS1; PS2; PS3

Pocket Monsters Green has no western equivalent, nor does Japanese Pocket Monsters Red.
The Western releases of Red and Blue are based on Japan's Pocket Monsters Blue.
Pokemon Yellow is effectively identical to Japan's Pocket Monsters Pikachu. --- Where logic won't work - I will PAL Gamers unite - http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/277-pal-gaming

American Red and Blue are sort of a hybrid of Japanese Red, Green, and Blue. They use the Pokemon graphics and code from Blue, but their Pokemon locations are the ones from Red and Green. That is what caused one of the mistakes in American Red and Blue: the one where a guy says that the Raichu (which was a Graveler in Japanese Blue) you traded him evolved. That's because they used the Pokemon from Red/Green but translated the text from Blue.
