  • Summary: For those who have always wished for more Pokémon programming on TV, here's a game that gives the Pokémon their own channel. Pokémon Channel lets you spend some quality time with Pikachu watching loads of Pokémon-style shows, including a never-before-seen DVD-quality animated feature starring the popular Pichu Bros. Identify Pokémon on Quiz Wobbuffet, exercise in Smoochum's Shape-up, and get the latest news from Psyduck and Meowth on Pokémon News Flash. Pokémon Channel also features collectible Nice Cards.

    The channels may not be exciting, but in a child’s eyes, they will be quite entrancing.
  2. Hours of fun for Pokemon fans. [Feb 2004, p.150]
  3. A well-executed... thing that's somehow being mis-sold as a video game. Either somebody at Nintendo is a certifiable maniac, or this is the future of video games. We're pretty sure it's the former.

    This game might look simplistic and childish at first, but when you start to appreciate it for what it is (a kids game), you begin to see how fun it can be. The Pichu Bros. Short is a welcome bonus for those who like the animé. There's plenty of fan service here, from the infamous quizzes to legendary Pokémon cameos (Celebi and Jirachi, anyone?). For the kids, an outstandingly fun game. Adults, please do something better with your time. Expand

    It was sort of cute but it was kinda boring.

    Very unique, but face it. Pokemon needs to stop riding a dead horse. This game is interesting, but probably just too weird for people.
