Hey You, Pikachu! Is a game made by Ambrella, and published by Nintendo.

Bad Qualities

  1. The game uses the Nintendo 64 VRU which in itself is a bad peripheral. As a result, it is difficult for the game to recognize the player's voice, especially if you have a deeper voice.
  2. The game is boring; all the player does is tell Pikachu to do certain things and not much else. All maps are enclosed.
  3. Very little actual way to really interact with Pikachu, other than telling him to pick up things.
  4. Rather short yet boring at the same time.
  5. Pikachu runs fine, but in this game, he walks very slowly.
  6. There is really no PAL European and UK region release in anywhere in Europe or the United Kingdom due to translation reasons. Let alone making Pokémon fans from anywhere in Europe, Scotland and even England unhappy.
  7. Pikachu would sometimes not listen to you no matter how many times you tell him.

Good Qualities

  1. Excellent graphics for its time, similar to the ones in Pokémon Stadium.
  2. The music is good at best and listenable at worst.
  3. The ending is emotional and well-written.
  4. Pikachu's design is great, and so are the other Pokémon.
  5. Great voice acting, especially from Ikue Ōtani as Pikachu.
  6. It has a unique concept where you can talk to Pikachu for the first time. It is only poorly executed due to the Nintendo 64 VRU's limitations.


Hey You, Pikachu received mixed reactions. It has a 57% score on Metacritic, a 6/10 from IGN, and a 5.4/10 on IMDb.

The game is very beautifully designed, especially for an N64 era game. It's a shame that there's no real gameplay and the voice thing sucks.
