While Pokémon Yellow Version remakes Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! may return Pokémon Trainers to the original region of Kanto, that doesn’t mean they can only obtain Kanto Pokémon there. While, sadly, only the first 151 Pokémon can be obtained in-game, players can get their hands on Alolan Forms of Gen I Pokémon — versions introduced in 2016’s Pokémon Sun and Moon for Nintendo 3DS.
