Pokémon Red, Green, Blue, Yellow - Virtual Console Features

The manual for the upcoming Virtual Console releases of Pokémon Green, Red, Blue and Yellow has gone online and has provided a very interesting bit of information. For the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U Virtual Console games, there's an option for you to use Restore Points in the VC menu on the touch screen so you can save a position in a game and return to it afterwards in case you make a mistake. However, it is now confirmed that Pokémon Red, Green, Blue and Yellow are unable to utilise the Restore Point feature of the Virtual Console, as well as being unable to use the 3DS's built in save backup feature. It's not stated why these features have been removed for these titles, but it is presumable to be in an effort to prevent the cloning of Pokémon. These are the first GameBoy Virtual Console titles to not utilise the Restore Point feature.
It is also confirmed that, as expected, you cannot access the VC Menu or Home Menu when using the Battle or Trade features in the game. We also have details on how the wireless features specifically work. When you go to the Cable Club, a new menu will appear on the touch screen. The first option is to Connect to a Partner, which sends the signal out while the second option is to Search for a Partner, where it will look for connections being requested
