Pink Yoshis are a variety of Yoshi debuting in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.

History

Yoshi series

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.


Yoshi's Story

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.

Yoshi Touch & Go

In Yoshi Touch & Go, Baby Mario can acquire a Pink Yoshi by achieving a score of at least 80, but less than 100 points in the vertical falling parts of the game. Here, it can carry a total of 30 eggs and is the third slowest Yoshi, being faster than the Light Blue Yoshi but slower than the Blue Yoshi.

Yoshi's Island DS

Pink Yoshi reappears in Yoshi's Island DS, playing in every second level. It plays the same as any Yoshi. It is paired with Baby Peach. However in this game Pink Yoshi has a brighter color than the original game.

Yoshi's Woolly World

Pink Yoshi reappears in Yoshi's Woolly World as a playable character. If the player is playing on file two, Pink Yoshi is the default playable character, alongside Red Yoshi, who is always playable. It does not play differently from other Yoshis. If the game is not played on file two, Pink Yoshi may be unlocked as a playable character by means of either completing the King Bowser's Castle level or by scanning a Pink Yarn Yoshi amiibo.

Super Smash Bros. series

Pink Yoshi also appears in the Super Smash Bros. series as one of Yoshi's recolors. It first appeared as a member of the Yoshi Team encountered in the 1-Player mode in Super Smash Bros., and became a playable palette swap in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U.


Mario Kart series

Mario Kart: Super Circuit

In Mario Kart: Super Circuit, when playing multiplayer with a single game cartridge, the second player will always play as Pink Yoshi.

Mario Kart Arcade GP 2

A Pink Yoshi, alongside various other Yoshis, cameos in the first lap of Yoshi Park 1 in Mario Kart Arcade GP 2, where pictures of them pop out of egg props.

Mario Kart 8

In Mario Kart 8, Pink Yoshi appears as an alternate skin for Yoshi. It is available through purchasing both The Legend of Zelda × Mario Kart 8 and Animal Crossing × Mario Kart 8 DLC packs.


Super Mario series

Super Mario Sunshine

Yoshi can turn into a Pink Yoshi in Super Mario Sunshine. If he eats a Coconut or a Banana, his pigment turns pink in color. While pink, Yoshi's juice can turn enemies into platforms that move vertically upwards. The real Pink Yoshi is not in this game.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Pink Yoshi is rideable in New Super Mario Bros. Wii along with the Green, Yellow, and Light Blue Yoshi. Originally, a Red Yoshi was going to be rideable instead of a Pink Yoshi. Pink Yoshi is the fourth Yoshi to hatch in New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

New Super Mario Bros. U

Even though Pink Yoshis do not appear in New Super Mario Bros. U, Balloon Baby Yoshis make an appearance to allow the player to float in midair.


Mario Tennis series

Mario Power Tennis

In Mario Power Tennis, Yoshi can change colors every time he performs a Rolling Egg Return, provided the player has completed the Flower Cup with any character. One of the colors that Yoshi can turn is pink.

Mario Tennis Open

Pink Yoshi appears in Mario Tennis Open as a downloadable QR code character. Like Peach, Daisy, Luma, and Red Yoshi, Pink Yoshi is classified as a Technique character.

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, if the Yoshi kid takes 15-18 minutes to hatch, it hatches as a Pink Yoshi kid. The Pink Yoshi kid has green hair, and red polka dotted pants.

Mario Super Sluggers

In Mario Super Sluggers, the Pink Yoshi is a team player. It has the worst pitching abilities, but it is also the fastest team player, being just as fast as the team captain Yoshi.

Mario Sports Mix

Pink Yoshi appears in Mario Sports Mix as an alternative coloration of Yoshi. It can be unlocked by playing 25 matches as Yoshi or passing the Pink Yoshi mission at Flower Cup.

Fortune Street

Two Pink Yoshis made cameo appearances on the Yoshi's Island board.
