: : : : : Hey You, Pikachu!

Editor's Note:

Because of major vagarities that can occur in language this domestic release may be exclusive to North America. If you mention the word "Playstation" to Pikachu you'll be sorry. Really!

Added on: October 30, 2000

[edit] Background

The cute Pokemon critter Pikachu comes to life in a whole new way on the N64 with Hey You, Pikachu! Communicate with Pikachu, who is constantly onscreen, using a special microphone. A voice recognition box receives your messages and sends them Pikachu. The game allows Pikachu to understand approximately 200 American english words and phrases. Help Pikachu interact with his environment and other Pokemon through a combination of vocal commands and point-and-click adventuring!

[edit] Features

  • Literally speak to Pikachu during gameplay using a microphone that hooks up to your Nintendo 64 controller, and listen to him respond with a vocabulary of over two hundred words!
  • Play a variety of mini-games while guiding Pikachu along with actual-spoken commands.
  • Take part in various activities, such as watching TV, babysitting other Pokemon, and much more!

[edit] Hardware Requirements

Hey You, Pikachu! comes with a sound-sensitive microphone and microphone pack that players must hook up to their Nintendo 64 controller to speak to Pikachu during gameplay.

This game is also known as Pikachu Genki Dechū in Japan.

Is this game really any good? The game just seems like a way to talk to Pikachu. Is there any other activities in the game? HeyYouPikachu
