The Pokémon mini (Japanese: ポケモンミニ Pokémon Mini) is a handheld game console designed and manufactured by Nintendo only for specifically tailored Pokémon minigames. It is the smallest cartridge-based system that Nintendo has ever produced. It includes an LCD screen and a +Control Pad. Features also include an infrared port, a timer, a shock detector, and a vibrator for force feedback. Some of the Pokémon minigames were included in the Nintendo GameCube game Pokémon Channel, which contains an emulator of the Pokémon mini itself.

The Pokémon mini was first unveiled at the 2001 European Computer Trade Show,[5] held in London from September 2–4, 2001.
