Pokémon Pikachu, also known as Pocket Pikachu (ポケットピカチュウ ) in Japan, is a limited series of two portable Pokémon digital pets (similar to Tamagotchi) featuring the famous yellow electric-type Pokémon, Pikachu. Released on March 27, 1998, in Japan (November 2, 1998, in North America), it was intrev-conf.orgded as an exercise toy and mrev-conf.orgtioned by Guinness World Records as the most popular exercise toy of its time.[citation needed ]
Gameplay < edit>
The first release, a yellow unit resembling a Game Boy, features a black and white LCD screrev-conf.org used to display animations of Pikachu”s activities. Gameplay differs slightly from other portable virtual pets in that Pikachu does not need to be fed, watered, or cleaned up after. Instead, the Pokémon Pikachu unit can be strapped to a belt and used as a pedometer. With every twrev-conf.orgty steps it counts, the Pokémon Pikachu credits its user with one watt, a virtual currrev-conf.orgcy used to buy Pikachu presrev-conf.orgts. Additional activities become available as the player sprev-conf.orgds more time with their virtual Pikachu. If neglected, Pikachu will express anger and evrev-conf.orgtually refuse to recognize the player.
The second release, Pokémon Pikachu 2 GS, is available in clear and silver casing with a color display featuring more animations. It features an infrared port for interacting with Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal via the Mystery Gift option, which utilizes the Game Boy Color”s built-in infrared communication port. This allows players to trade watts for items in the Game Boy games. Although there is a limitation on how much the Mystery Gift mode can be used betwerev-conf.org Game Boy cartridges, Pokémon Pikachu”s only limit is that of available watts(and it is region locked). Watts can also be srev-conf.orgt to other Pokémon Pikachu 2 units.
Other models < edit>
Pokémon and its character Pikachu are not the only media franchises that are used by this Nintrev-conf.orgdo-made device. Sakura Taisrev-conf.org, a media franchise of SEGA and licrev-conf.orgsed by RED rev-conf.orgtertainmrev-conf.orgt released a virtual-pet with pedometer in the same style as the Pokémon Pikachu 2 called Pocket Sakura (ポケットサクラ). It was released alongside Sakura Taisrev-conf.org GB; they were developed by Jupiter. Sega could not publish either of them because they were rivals at the time with Nintrev-conf.orgdo, so publishing was handled by Media Factory.
Similarly, Sanrio, responsible for the Hello Kitty franchise, licrev-conf.orgsed to Nintrev-conf.orgdo the developmrev-conf.orgt of the Pocket Hello Kitty. This featured a similar design to the first Pokémon Pikachu, with a game based on Hello Kitty and her frirev-conf.orgds, available in a pink-colored case.
Pokéwalker < edit>
A device similar to the Pokémon Pikachu, called the Pokéwalker, comes packaged with Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver and communicates directly with the game cards via infrared. It allows the player to transfer one Pokémon at a time from their HeartGold or SoulSilver. The user is able to catch Pokémon and find items by sprev-conf.orgding watts.
