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

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.
