The player stays at home with Pikachu, and can interact with it. One of the main features of the game is watching television with Pikachu. There are a variety of channels themed with Pokémon, such as Shop 'N Squirtle, Smoochum Shape-up to name a few, as an episode of the Pokémon anime, specifically of the Pichu Brothers (however, it is initially divided into five parts).

Another feature is exploring a few areas outside around Mintale Town, the main setting of the game; where the player can encounter Pokémon and answer their quizzes. The player also has their own garden.

The North American and Australian versions of the game include e-Reader support for the Smeargle Paint minigame, as well as a Pokémon mini with some of the games emulated from the actual physical Pokémon mini and one new game, called Snorlax's Lunch Time.

The European and Australian versions of the game also have an in-built special promotion for downloading the Mythical Pokémon Jirachi, which is possible after clearing the story (unlocking all channels, fixing the TV, recovering a lost channel).

The player can collect a variety of "Nice Cards", featuring several Pokémon species.
