  • Summary: For the first time ever, you can actually talk to your favorite Pokemon. Tag along with Pikachu as it goes through its daily routines, taking field trips, going fishing and having picnics, becoming better friends with each passing day. Pikachu will hear and react to the words you say. The more you speak the closer friends you'll be! Collapse

  1. But if you're looking for more than a distraction for the kids, a learning tool perfectly disguised as a game, then consider Nintendo's Hey You, Pikachu!.

    Once you give it a closer look, Hey You, Pikachu! is a highly addictive game that both children and adults can enjoy.
  3. After forcing myself to play it through, I must admit the game has some positive qualities -- just not enough to endear it to anyone over the age of 9.

    This is a novelty. Granted, for all it's limitations, the technology does work, but this really is something for the little ones.
  5. Unlike "Seaman," this game's voice recognition is pretty primitive.
  6. I had a difficult time even playing this game for more than half an hour. It's simply so boring and mundane that I can't see anyone over the age of 10 enjoying this game.
  7. 30
    Even if you dig Pikachu's act, the "game" is ultimately a spirit-crushing, mind-numbing exercise in tedium.

    boring, and most the time pikachu goes off to lala land and does nothing you tell him to do!!!
    It is a great idea, and they should make a new
    version of it with better technology, but dont pick up this old n64 title. Expand
