Pikachu vs. Homer Simpson

DS Lite comes in yellow too

Akihabara News

As it turns out, Homer doesn't have a monopoly on yellow game boxes . Nintendo has answered the doughnut meister with a special edition of its own in the same color, albeit a portable one.

A limited number of DS Lites will be available in a glossy "Pikachu yellow" with a matching stylus and the prototypical Pokemon rodent's face etched in the lid's corner. It goes for $139, but Akihabara News says there are a few small catches: It's being sold at the Japanese Pokemon Center and, even then, only through a lottery. Good luck catching them all.
