How rare are yellow bettas?

My local Petsmart has had a number of yellow plakat bettas (or dragonscale... are they the same thing?). I have never seen them anywhere else. They're so awesome and I really want one but I don't have any extra tanks right now! They aren't solid yellow- they have some black outlines to their scales. They're so cool. Are they rare?

Yellow is not a common color, especially strong yellows.

I don't think they are to uncommon. I saw some very beautiful yellow VT males at Walmart today. They were unhealthy which means their color was washed out but they where still pretty yellow.

A strong pure yellow is rare. Ones with black flecks and other coloured washes are not. The bettas you are describing sound very pretty.

I'm not sure of their rarity or if it matters if its male or female. Petsmart & Petco for that matter will have certain colors for periods of time & then the colors switch. In any case I have a beautiful yellow CT female that I got from Petsmart a few months back, I was looking closely at her the other day & boy has she gotten to be a bright yellow. I attempted a pic but she wasn't having it.
