Pokémon Red, Green and Blue have been put onto the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console and have largely remained unaltered including glitches, however unlike the other Virtual Console games, these games do come with a variety of alterations. In addition to this, they do not allow for the Virtual Console features of Save Backups or Restore Points. It also uses the X Button to bring up the pause menu like the 3DS games, rather than bringing up the Virtual Console menu.

Wireless Trading

The most notable addition of the Virtual Console titles are the inclusion of Wireless Battle & Trade features. When you go to the Cable Club in each Pokémon Center, the game will run as normal but will activate a Virtual Console feature that will ask you to search for or join another player's game. From there, the general Cable Club features continue as normal. However, if you break the wireless connection, the features will end.

Move Animations

Since 1996, various changes have been applied to how games can utilise flashing screens. This is due to the effect that these flashing animations can have on people with photo-sensitive epilepsy. As such, for the Virtual Console releases, various moves have had updated animations in order to attempt to dull the effect of rapid flashing which could potentially trigger these things.

The affected moves are as follows
Bubble Beam
Dream Eater
Hyper Beam
Mega Kick
Mega Punch
Rock Slide
