    It's a nice time passer!

    Okay, so PC is an okay time passer. But after you unlock all the channels... It does get a little boring. Though it's nice to hang out with pikachu and when your watching TV with him, it feels like your actually watch... Read Full Review

    THIS IS THE WORST GAME OF ALL TIME.

    Story: 1 It sucks, is stupid, and gay Graphics: 1 The graphics and animations look like N64 games...oh wait...they are (I'm not joking! The animations are frame-for-frame from Pokemon Stadium) Sound: 1 The pokemo... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Pokemon Channel

  • Review Score:6.7

    This game is basically Hey, You! Pikachu! with the most annoying feature (the microphone) removed, being replaced by a less interactive system. The game focuses a bit heavily on the TV, which actually helps mask the fac... Read Full Review

    Semi-Sequal to Hey You Pikachu from N64. Unlike Hey You Pikachu, you don't talk to Pikachu. Plus, the gameplay has changed a little, that the value of this game isn't as good as the Prequal. Gameplay: You still pla... Read Full Review

    Nintendo have Pokeballsed this up...

    If you thought Big Brother was as moronic as television gets, think again. Pokemon Channel plonks you and your buddy Pikachu in front of the gogglebox where you’re forced to watch painfully dull shows. The pika of the bu... Read Full Review

    Teach Pikachu the joys of watching cable television in a kiddy game. Hallelujah.

    Pokemon Channel is a hard-to-explain type of game. The focus is to teach Pikachu how to watch TV. There are lots of shows to watch, many of which are charming and interactive. Some let you buy things for Pikachu's house,... Read Full Review

    If you liked the spirit of Hey You Pikachu, then Pokemon Channel is your must-have game.

    Gameplay: This game is a semi-sequel to Hey You Pikachu from the N64. But there are a few changes. The main portion of the game is watching Pokemon Channels on a TV sent by Professor Oak. After you complete the game i... Read Full Review

    This isn't a game. It's just a lousy excuse to promote the horrible TV show.

    Now, I love the Pokemon series as much as the next guy, but Nintendo can't honestly expect to succeed with games like this. Although this shouldn't really count as a flaw, it does: nobody except the stupid eight (Or youn... Read Full Review

    Even if you're a die-hard Pokemon fan, this game is not worth your cash.

    Pokemon Channel shouldn't be called a game. It should just be called, "a crappy TV simulator" because that's all it really is... just a crappy simulator where you and Pikachu watch TV. And that's about all that's fun. ... Read Full Review

    One of the worst GameCube games!

    Sequels or spin-offs for bad games (Hey You! Pikachu) means bad games. This is the case with Pokemon Channel. No, wait! Pokemon Channel is so low on interactivity that it shouldn't even be considered a game. Pokemon C... Read Full Review
