Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island / Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3
A Pink Yoshi first appears in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. Here, it is only playable in the second level of each world. It has pink skin and orange shoes with an orange saddle. However, in the Game Boy Advance port, Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island, Pink Yoshi wears blue shoes instead. Apart from its color scheme, it does not bear any differences from the other types of Yoshis in the game.
In the original game for the Super Nintendo, the Pink Yoshi is more magenta in its color. However, this was changed in the Game Boy Advance remake, where it is a truer pink color, much like in other games it appears in.
In Yoshi's Story, a Pink Yoshi is among the Baby Yoshis the player can choose from before starting a level. It wears yellow shoes and a red saddle in this game, a color scheme also present in most later games, excluding Super Mario Sunshine. It does not differ from other playable Yoshis apart from its color and diet.
Pink Yoshi is featured on the cover art picture of the North American Yoshi's Story cartridge.
