===Wii Remote===

Wii's controller is a strange and revolutionary one, instead of taking the dual-control-stick layout of the previous generation like its competitors, it is in a remote control form, with attachments available to work with compatible games, such as a control stick on a Nunchuk attachment, or the Classic Controller, which takes on a layout similar to the other consoles' main controller. The Wii Remote is wireless, and features many innovations such as motion and tilt sensing, a first for game controllers. The motion sensor requires a bar to be placed on the top or bottom of the screen. The sensitivity can be enhanced with {{nw|Wii Motion-Plus}}, although currently it is not compatible with any [[Pokémon games]].
===Wii Menu===

The console features a custom GUI made up of different—and expandable—channels, all of which, save the Disc Channel, can be moved around to any of the 47 spaces available on the main menu. New channels can be downloaded via the Wii Shop Channel, including a browserBrowser and games from older systems playable via Virtual Console. The channels can be put on an SD card, and with the introduction of Wii Menu 3.3, SD Card menus can be accessed straight from the main one.
Wii also has the ability to send messages to and from other devices, so long as the Wii sends out the first message, an address book confirmation message, to the email address or cell phone number in question. When the recipient replies to the Wii's message, communication between the two devices will be active, and via WiiConnect24, others can leave messages for players of the console on its message board from anywhere in the world.

* Players have a Wii in their [[bedroom]] in [[Generation IV]] and [[Generation V]]. In {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, {{ga|Barry}} has a Wii in his room too. In {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, the player's alternate-gender counterpart, {{ga|Red}}, and {{ga|Blue}} each have a Wii. There is also a Wii next to a TV on the [[S.S. Aqua]].
** In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, in [[the Underground]], there is a Wii decoration, titled "game system", for the player's [[secret base]].
