White Yoshis are a variety of Yoshi. As with Black Yoshis, White Yoshis have some powers other Yoshis don't, such as eating Red Peppers and not losing happiness in Yoshi's Story.
A White Yoshi first appeared as a playable character in Yoshi's Story. One can be found in Stage 3-2: The Tall Tower or in Stage 3-3: Poochy and Nippy.
In this game, they, like the Black Yoshis, can eat things that normal Yoshis cannot, like Red Peppers and Black Shy Guys. White Yoshis can also flutter further when they're a Super Happy Yoshi, and fire eggs that explode when their happy meter is full. Also, while the Black Yoshi has the lowest pitched voice, White Yoshi has the highest pitched voice. If White Yoshi is lost, White Shy Guy cannot bring him back unless the game has been completed with White Yoshi in the party at least once.
If one of the Blurps in Jungle Puddle eats a White Yoshi, they will display an upset emotion bubble, suggesting that White and Black Yoshis taste bad to enemies.
