    Any idea if this is a real GB-UK Pokemon Blue manual?

    POKEMON YELLOW LEAK? But no one got it before it was released? WUT

    Probably a different version of the yellow booklet. I had one as a kid.

    Thats what I thought, but the dates on it are a full year behind. And the first line of dates goes as far as 1998. It wasnt released in EU until 2000.

    I forgot
    Pokemon Yellow came out in JP in 1998, so it's more than likely the booklet you have is a reprint from a later manufacturing date. It may not have been out in the EU until 2000, but that doesn't mean it can't mention other versions of the game released elsewhere at earlier dates.
