Pokémon Channel, released in Japan as Pokémon Channel ~Together With Pikachu!~ (ポケモンチャンネル ～ピカチュウといっしょ!～ Pokémon Channeru ~Pikachū to Issho!~) is a virtual pet video game for the GameCube developed by Ambrella. Its focus is the adventures the player has with Pikachu, most of them involving a new television network. The game can be considered as the spiritual sequel to Hey You, Pikachu!.
Improper GameCube Font
Due to copyright concerns Dolphin is unable to include official GameCube fonts, and instead uses "Droid Sans". Unfortunately Droid Sans does not align well with the size/kerning of the official GameCube font, which can cause text to be misplaced, dialogs to display improperly, and other issues due to augmented text sizes. This can be corrected by including a region appropriate GameCube IPL under <Dolphin User Folder>/GC/. A GameCube "IPL.bin" can be acquired from a real GameCube using Swiss. Refer .
Programs with Painting
EFB Copies to Texture Only must be disabled for programs with painting to work.
While using Smeargle 2 to paint during the "Pichu Bros." anime, the crayon won't update right. Set the Texture Cache to safe to fix this.
