Pokemon is is having quite a year for its 20th anniversary with two brand new mainline games coming later this year, along with games like Pokken Tournament and Pokemon GO as well. The actual 20th anniversary was on February 27th and brought us the three classic Pokemon games on the 3DS Virtual Console. While Red and Blue limit you to one of the original three starters, all three can be obtained in Pokemon Yellow. As Pokemon Yellow is the one game to be somewhat based off the anime, you instead start with Pikachu as your starter, which leaves Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle out of the fun from the start. However, each one of these three can be gotten separately without too much work in the early portions of the game.

Fortunately, Pokemon Yellow has done away with that by allowing fans to obtain every single one of them by completing tasks and talking to trainers. The only catch is that they can be easily missed.
