It's no secret that by 2000, Pokémon
was at the height of its popularity. So much so that Nintendo
created the first (and only) game console dedicated to a single franchise in the form of the Pokémon mini. The console was released in 2001 and was Nintendo's smallest cartridge-based handheld to date. Despite its single color dot-matrix LCD screen, the system had revolutionary features for its time, including an infrared port, a shock detector, a real-time clock, and a vibrator to produce force feedback. The system lasted for about a year, edged out by the far fancier Game Boy Advance
, but has gained a large homebrew fanbase.
Pokémon Channel has an official Pokémon mini emulator in the game.
