Pokémon Channel

GameCube (2003)

I don’t remember how I got Pokémon Channel, but I love it and Hey You, Pikachu!. It’s definitely a spiritual sequel of sorts, even though it unfortunately doesn’t utilize the microphone accessory that other games on the GameCube used. They wouldn’t have even needed to make specialized hardware! People must not have really liked Hey You, Pikachu!.

The GBA e-Reader connection error is pretty neat, I think there might be more errors hiding around it if the connection is lost at different points during the e-reading process. The error resulting from failing to load a save file is particularly funny to me. “Play it from the beginning!”
