    Default I can't believe this... I... LIKE Pokemon Channel?

    I got this game for Christmas because I noticed its $10 new price at EB on Black Friday. I mostly wanted it for the e-cards, but then it started to sound like fun to me. Maybe I'm crazy, but I truly enjoy the game where I really don't have to do anything.

    Does anyone else like this game and is not ashamed to talk about it?
    Egbert, I miss you...

    I thought it was a nice, relaxing game. I mean, it's not Metroid Prime or anything, but it's a nice way to blow a rainy afternoon. The Pichu cartoon is kinda cute too.

    That's EXACTLY how I felt about the game - I mean it wasn't anything revolutionary, but it was an easy way to pass the time. It didn't have any depth, but that's what I liked about it, it was different and entertaining. Collecting, coloring, trading, it wasn't something you'd normally see in a game, but it still made it fun. I was a fool to sell it to bjeong, but I picked it up again as Best Buy had it marked for $4.99, I was thrilled.
    Mostly just play Nintendo 64. If you've got games PM me! Cart only.

    I've been REALLY wanting to pick this up, I don't wanna pay much more than 5.00-8.00 for it though. Looks kinda fun.

    I also enjoyed the hell outta Pokemon Snap!

    I used to be a pokemon fanatic.

    I must admit - Back in the day, I was so Anti-Pokemon it was unbelievable, but now all the hype is over I have come out of the closet and will admit I actually do enjoy all Pokemon games!

    I even have nearly all of them too - Just missing Crystal and Puzzle Challenge - And that Pikachu one with the microphone...


    I haven't yet played Channel, but loved Snap to bits! Just a shame Colloseum never had mini-games just like Stadium I & II did...


    Is there also a Pokemon Stadium III in Japan? Or is that just my imagination?

    And do Jade and Diamond actually exist? I see so many fakes on eBay it's unreal!

    Yeah, I was like that too. But, then LeafGreen came out, and once I had it, I got Ruby, and I had been considering getting Colosseum. These things are addicting!

    There were three Pokemon Stadiums in Japan, but the first one only supported 40 Pokemon (for some reason). They later released an update (Pokemon Stadium 2) that included all 151 Pokemon. When they decided to bring it over to the states, they ported the second game as just Pokemon Stadium.
    Their Pokemon Stadium 3 included support for the G/S Pokemon, and it came over to the states as Pokemon Stadium 2 GS.

    I find pokemon channel quite a fun & relaxing game.

    I was wondering does the us version have 2 disks like the japanese version does. On the 2nd disk are trailers to all the pokemon movies in japan plus a special pokemon real fireworks display (quite impressive) theres also a silly music video on there too

    Nope, we've just got 1 disk with the game on it.



    Oh yeah, importaku: do you have the SD card adaptor for the Gamecube by any chance?
