    WHAT THE HECK IS UP WITH THIS GAME?!?!?!?!?!?????

    WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH THIS GAME?!?!?!?!?????? This game is downright sad, and reminds me of a really bad sitcom i used to watch. It plays you as a couch potato (which you may already be one, i don't know) who han... Read Full Review

    This game is not terrible, but it isn't very good ether.

    [This was written in MSWord] This game is OK, but it certainly is not terrible. If you are playing this game, you should have heard of Pokemon before. Pokemon Channel remixes Pokemon and Nintendogs together, and now ... Read Full Review

    Very redundant......-_-

    One of the most redundant and boring games I have played to date. Completely lacks any substance and has no plot or meaning to it. I thank God I rented it first before I brought it or else it would have been a waste of m... Read Full Review

    You, Pikachu and a Pokémon TV.

    I am a big fan of the Pokémon series. Loads of other people do as well. Nintendo sometimes decide to send the Pokémon franchise down the "Video-Game Spin Off" route. This means that Pokémon video games go aside from the ... Read Full Review

    There is nothing wrong with this game, you can't hate it.

    You can't hate this game, there is nothing about this game that there is to hate. I've owned this game for over 6 years, since it's release, and I think that those who hate this game have given this game a poor chance, ... Read Full Review

    A different type of Pokemon game.

    This game is a drastic change to the Pokemon games that we have all come to know and love. The game starts out with "you" a test subject, watching channels and thats basically it, until a Pikachu finds you and takes a li... 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

    Honestly, this game isn't THAT horrible!

    The whole game is having Pikachu watch TV. Sounds boring? Yes, it sure SOUNDS boring, but is it really? REVIEW TIME!!!! The gameplay is pretty unique, admittedly. It's a crazy concept, but it kept me hooked for a w... Read Full Review

    Watch your virtual Pokemon watch TV. Fun times.

    This game is NOT worth the Pokemon title. You start out by receiving a TV, and Prof. Oak asking you to test out the Pokemon Channel. You befriend a wild Pikachu, who eventually electrocutes your TV. You can buy stuff ... 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
