Since the launch of ‘Pokémon GO,’ we have wondered if we will see any other title of the franchise on mobile devices. But, what if I say that now you can play “Pokemon Yellow” on your Apple watch? Sounds bit odd right, but it’s true now you can play this game on your Apple watch.

Since the launch of ‘Pokémon GO,’ we have wondered if we will see any other title of the franchise on mobile devices. Today a ray of hope has been born because someone has managed to play ‘Pokémon Yellow’ on the Apple Watch.

‘Pokémon Yellow’ on Apple Watch is not an official release, Yes, sounds bit crazy right, as it should be. Unfortunately, this is only an experiment by developer Gabriel O’Flaherty-Chan, who spent a few hours adjusting the title for this platform.

He explains that when he bought his Apple Watch, he was simply disappointed by the small amount of available game options and took matters into his own hands by creating a game of his own. Shortly after he wanted to try with an emulator.

This is how Giovanni, his ‘Pokémon Yellow’ emulator, was named after Team Rocket. Fortunately, Gabriel has put all his project available for download on Github. But, one of the biggest challenges was actually finding the balance between performance and framerate.

The truth is that trying on your own could take a lot of time and the result would leave you somewhat unsatisfied, as the developer himself states that at the moment it is very unstable.

Anyway, the answer he was looking for it has been answered, because we know that running similar games on the Apple Watch is possible and there should be no problems for someone to create something similar.
