I feel like being a reboot of Yellow conceptually makes the most sense to me... the games have little in way of continuity between them, save for maybe a vague overarching Giovanni plot that you could easily forget was even there, so it wouldn't be particularly notable if they dropped it and started over.that's what makes the whole "yellow reboot" thing confusing imo
I personally just interpreted "reboot" in this context, as starting over from Kanto but with a new continuity moving forward.
Meanwhile, if it's just a reboot of Yellow's concept, it would be taking the same basic premise of traveling through Kanto with a companion pokemon outside of their pokeball (now instead of just Pikachu, we get either Pikachu or Eevee) without the anime references of where we obtain Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle, and not having anime NPCs like Jessie, James, Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny. Essentially just taking Yellow and chopping out the anime references, maybe giving it an all new plot... which would make it rather far from being a Yellow remake, for sure.
