The "[[VideoGame/HeyYouPikachu cute]] [[VideoGame/PokemonChannel Pikachu]]" Franchise/{{Pokemon}} spinoff series for the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}, and perhaps the one with the highest production values: instead of being a virtual pet, it's more of an action/adventure game.

''[=PokéPark=] Wii: Pikachu's Adventure'' stars our favorite Pokémon, Pikachu, as the main character. Mew has asked him and his friends to help repair the Sky Prism that powers Mew's home, the Sky Pavilion. The Pavilion floats high above the [=PokéPark=], where many Pokémon live and come to play: the friendship and love among the Pokémon of the park sustains the Prism, and without it, the Pavilion will fall and crush the [=PokéPark=] below. Pikachu can befriend other Pokémon, thus helping to restore the Prism, by doing favors for them, or proving himself in Skill Games with them.

The game has a sequel, ''[=PokéPark=] 2: Wonders Beyond'', which got released on the Wii (in Japan, it's titled ''Beyond the World'') and featuring Pokémon from ''[[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Black and White]]'' and multiplayer. This game has a much deeper story involving the possible destruction of the Pokémon World and the Wish Park.
!!These games provide examples of:

[[folder:Tropes appearing in both games]]
* HundredPercentCompletion: In both games you have to befriend everyone, and in ''PokéPark Wii'' you have to befriend them [[FakeLongevity twice]], in order to get a secret cutscene at the end. Which lasts for all but a few seconds. You can also choose to max out all of your stats (all of Pikachu's stats in PokéPark 1, everyone's stats in PokéPark 2) and beat all of the minigames with every character's highest possible score (in PokéPark 1), but they don't go towards a completion bonus.
* AfterTheEnd: The most lighthearted take possible on the trope, and only in the sense that humans have abandoned the theme park for Pokémon to take over. It's unclear if humans (not counting [[WasOnceAMan Cofagrigus]]) are still around elsewhere or not.
* AllLovingHero: Pikachu.
* BerserkButton: Never '''ever''' attack a Ursaring or any other big Pokémon. They're not afraid to beat up Pikachu if you do that.
** The same applies to Beartic as well.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard:
** A few of the battles against certain Pokemon can fall under this. They just love to spam certain moves without giving you any time to recover. Interestingly enough, the inverse can be true as well. In some cases, the best way to win a battle isn't via strategy. But rather just repeatedly ramming into your opponent while running circles around them.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: Beating Pokémon in battle, Chase, and/or Hide and Seek allows you to be their friend.
* ElementalRockPaperScissors: In the first game, the Pokémon you would expect are immune to Thunderbolt. The sequel's expansion of the battle system takes the full spectrum of type matchups into account.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: It is possible to befriend every Pokémon in the game, no exceptions.]]
* HeroicMime: Pikachu.
* IdleAnimation: Pikachu has a few in the original that play if he's standing in certain zones or near certain Pokémon. He'll also fall asleep after a while. {{Justified|Trope}} in ''Wonders Beyond'', [[spoiler:as this is how you befriend Munna]].
* InSeriesNickname: Pikachu is nicknamed Lightning Strike by the Pokémon in the Lava Zone.
** Pikachu and the Unova starters are referred to by a variety of nicknames in ''Wonders Beyond''. Which nickname is used is dependent on the player's actions.
* PartyGame: Not including the main campaign, PokéPark is notable for how many games it has. [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot Too bad the first game is single-player only,]] [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter and the second game only has 4 playable characters with 4 games in total.]]
* PokemonSpeak: Provides the VoiceGrunting, but the Pokémon here (besides Roggenrola) can actually speak.
* PopQuiz: One of the ways you can befriend Pokémon is by correctly answering three questions.
* SceneryPorn: The whole [=PokéPark=].
* SpiritualSuccessor: To ''VideoGame/HeyYouPikachu'' and ''VideoGame/PokemonChannel''.
* ThemeParks: Take a wild guess as to what the setting is.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: To the other Pokémon: you can use your moves on them and watch them get hurt out of battle. Or, if you're feeling especially cruel, targeting bystander Pokémon while ''in'' battle with Iron Tail, or putting them into your opponent's line of fire.
** There are several Pokémon, like Buneary and Pachirisu, who you can send flying several feet just by running into them.
** VideoGameCrueltyPunishment: Of course, some of the larger ones fight back...

[[folder:PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure]]
* {{Balloonacy}}: Pikachu uses a bunch of balloons in order to play "Pelipper's Circle Circuit" and "Salamence's Air Ace".
* BreakingTheFourthWall: One of the loading screens show Pikachu running towards the camera and looking curiously at you.
* ChekhovsGun: Bellossom mentions finding something at the Beach Zone when you first visit her zone. [[spoiler: The Magical Watering Can she found is how you revive the Gracidea flower.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Snorlax]].
* FlippingHelpless: If your charge into Turtwig in the first zone (with minigames) at the beginning of the game, it will be flipped on to it's back for a few seconds before flipping back over.
* FloatingContinent: The Sky Pavilion, Mew's home.
* LampshadeHanging: The Pokémon who teaches Pikachu Iron Tail is Primeape, whom you may know to not have a tail. It's a lampshade on the fact that in the standard Pokémon [=RPGs=], Primeape can learn Iron Tail from its pre-evolution, Mankey, who ''does'' have a tail. When Pikachu questions how he can know it, he basically says that he's just that good.
** There's a Tyranitar that mocks the game's premise in the Granite zone.
* MythologyGag: Meowth, having a quiz game, obviously gets to say "That's right!"[[note]]his catchphrase from [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} the anime.]][[/note]] A bit of Brooklyn accent also seeps out of his dialogue at times.
** Hey, doesn't the Pelipper and the bulletin board next to it, along with the Corphish going "hey hey!", remind you of [[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon some other Pokémon spinoff?]]
* NiceGuy: Blaziken. According to Sneasel, he never leaves an injustice unpunished, no matter how small! He also saves other Pokémon when they're in trouble.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Blaziken and his followers in the Lava Zone. As one Pokémon put it, "Let's battle. Don't ask why. Battling is just like saying hello here."
* ThePowerOfFriendship: This is what holds the Sky Prism together.
* RegionalBonus: The passwords are different for each region.
* ShoutOut:
** The first time you walk through the Haunted House in the Haunted Zone, you're met with a Duskull who promptly tells you you're the [[Franchise/TheHauntedMansion 999th]] guest to visit.
** If you talk to Blaziken, then decline to play his Attraction, he [[Series/WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire asks if that's your final answer.]]
* SuperTitle64Advance
* SurferDude: Pikachu uses a green surfboard in order to play "Gyarados' Aqua Dash".

[[folder:PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond]]
* AmbiguouslyGay: Chandelure. At the very least, he seems more feminine than everybody else, with his love of dazzling decorations and his over-the-top nature.
* TheArtifact: Befriending Pokémon. Instead of being playable in any of the 4 minigames, the Pokémon you meet only serve as [[PlotCoupon plot coupons]] in this game.
** The minigames as well. There are only 4 minigames, and while they do allow for co-operative play (after you unlock them) there are only 5 characters to choose from (unlike Pokepark, where every Pokemon you befriend can be played in one minigame or another). It doesn't help that in the story mode [[AbilityRequiredToProceed there's only one Pokemon you can play as that will be allowed a high enough score to beat the minigame, regardless of how well you do with the others]].
* ArtificialAtmosphericActions: Pokemon that wander about in each zone are capable of conversing with each other, as well as attack each other.
* BigBad: [[spoiler:Darkrai]].
* BigDamnHeroes: Quite a few examples in [=PokéPark=] 2.
** Oshawott rescues the group from Cofagrigus' [[ItMakesSenseInContext cake barrage]].
** Zoroark calls out Gothitelle, causing the Wish Park crew to leave.
** [[spoiler:Reshiram and Zekrom bringing Piplup to Pikachu to snap him out of his depression.]]
** [[spoiler:Piplup goes to get Reuniclus to help stop the Dark Vortex, arriving in Wish Park just as soon as the vortex starts swallowing everyone up.]]
* BrainwashedAndCrazy:
** Participating in Wish Park's attractions has this effect on the [=PokéPark=] Pokémon. It's also implied [[TheDragon Gothitelle]] can do this to Pokémon directly.
** [[spoiler:Zoroark]] in Dance Zone and [[spoiler:Piplup]] in Wish Castle.
* CallBack: A few characters, including the Duskull in the Unawarehouse and the Burmy in Verdant Court, are from the original game according to their in-game dialogue.
* CharacterSelectForcing: Unlike the previous game, where you could beat any minigame with any character (albeit with some characters doing better than others), the game has one specific character you have to clear the game with or else the game won't let your score be high enough to pass. [[ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman Most often the newest character you recieved.]]
* CrapsaccharineWorld: Wish Park appears at first glance a child's fantasy world, until it turns out that the Pokémon entering it get brainwashed and can never leave.
* DanceSensation: Chandelure believe his Dance Inferno attraction is this.
* DespairEventHorizon: Pikachu goes into this in the second game after his friends leave him (thanks to their memories being erased temporarily). Thanks to Piplup appearing, he snaps out of it.
* TheDragon: Gothitelle.
* EasyAmnesia: [[spoiler:Darkrai induces this in the other playable characters besides Pikachu, causing them to lose their memories of Pikachu and their adventure. Luckily, a quick battle or game of Chase can bring them back to their senses.]]
* FightingYourFriend: [[spoiler:Pikachu is forced to battle a brainwashed Piplup]]. Subverted with [[spoiler: Oshawott and Tepig after their memories are wiped]]
* FirstPersonSnapshooter: While the first game gave players the option to take screenshots, the second game requires specific pictures to be taken to befriend certain Pokémon.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: When Darkrai realizes his attempts to make Wish Park into the ideal world has only caused the world's balance to be disrupted and the Dark Vortex starts destroying both worlds, Darkrai takes Reuniclus' invention and enters the vortex to close it himself.]]
* HopeBringer: In the opening cutscene, Reshiram sees Pikachu as this for the entire Pokemon world.
* InterfaceSpoiler: Pokemon you haven't befriended yet appear as sillouettes in the credits. [[spoiler: Including ''Darkrai'', spoiling that his HeroicSacrifice was a DisneyDeath.]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Anyone who stays in Wish Park seems to get this. [[spoiler:Late in the game, Darkrai does this to Piplup, Oshawott, Snivy, and Tepig himself and Pikachu has to snap them out of it.]]
* LittleMissSnarker: Snivy is quite possibly one of the most snarkiest Pokemon in the franchise so far. Given half the mons she has to deal with though, it's rather understandable. [[DefrostingIceQueen She does end up warming up to the main group over the course of the adventure, though.]]
* LongLived: Bronzong is stated to have been around since creatures other than Pokémon (humans) lived in the PokéPark.
* LovableCoward: Tepig, also a CowardlyLion.
** [[spoiler:Emboar, Tepig's mentor, explains that he started out this way as well.]]
* MakeMyMonsterGrow: [[spoiler: Darkrai during the second phase of the battle during the climax of PokéPark 2.]]
* MonsterArena: Battle Tournament, which serves as a large part of Tepig's motivation. You can enter it after the credits roll.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler: Darkrai, upon realizing that he has caused time and space to be disrupted, causing the Dark Vortex to start destroying both PokéPark ''and'' Wish Park.]]
* RacingMinigame: The Flight of Fancy attraction.
* TeleportSpam: The first phase of [[spoiler:Darkrai's]] boss fight.
* {{Samurai}}: Samurott, the keeper of the Cove Area.
* SamusIsAGirl: Oshawott is a bit shocked to discover that Snivy is a girl.
* SaveTheVillain: [[spoiler: Following Darkrai's HeroicSacrifice, the players will help free him from the Dark Vortex out of pity. He does a HeelFaceTurn following this.]]
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Piplup is the only supporting character from ''Pikachu's Adventure'' that returns, and has a more prominent role.
** Not that he wasn't prominent in the first one, as well as his entire evolutionary chain.
* SurpriseCreepy: Some of the scenes in [=PokéPark=] 2 are actually pretty creepy. [[spoiler: The fact that the main villain nearly pulls an EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt is only ''one'' of the surprisingly disturbing things in this game. Then there's Pikachu being pushed past the DespairEventHorizon after all his friends have their memories wiped and no longer remember him.]]
* SweetDreamsFuel: The four different sections of Wish Park.
* TomboyPrincess: Snivy takes on this role in the game. Serperior [[spoiler: assumes the role of queen of the Arbor Area and is Snivy's mom.]]
* UnsettlingGenderReveal: After the main game is complete, a quick battle with [[spoiler:Gothorita reveals that many Pokémon mistake him for a girl.]]
* WasOnceAMan: Cofagrigus is said to have been a king long time ago, and he's the evolved form of Yamask, Pokémon who are explicitly stated to be the spirits of decased humans.
* WellExcuseMePrincess: Snivy, even being specifically labelled female ''and'' a princess of her home area. She tarts off as a BrattyHalfPint, though she [[DefrostingIceQueen defrosts a little]] as things progress.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler: Darkrai]].
* YouHaveFailedMe: While Darkrai's minions get bellowed this a fair few times, it doesn't seem to go past an idle scolding. Those who try to [[TheStarscream turn against]] his [[TheDragon Dragons]], however, are [[CurbstompBattle handled less generously]].
