A '''Poke''' is similar to a [[GameShark]] code in that it allows specific manipulation of data in memory. The Monster Brain does not have a list of codes entered and is unable to turn them off once entered. This feature was not well documented by Pelican Accessories as no list of Poke codes were included with the device. There is a program available online[http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~jdonald/pokemon/] that will convert a GameShark code to a Monster Brain Poke code, but because of the differences in the way the devices handle codes they don't always work properly.

This featurecan be used by all Game Boy and Game Boy Color games, including Pokémon games. It is activated by pressing a physical button on the Monster Brain itself during an initial screen, or during game play.

Activating the Colorizer on a Type 2 cartridge when using a Game Boy Color will trick the system into thinking it is a Type 1 cartridge allowing a custom palette to be defined. Similarly, because the Monster Brain itself is designed for the Game Boy Color the colorizer must be activated to use it on a different system such as the original Game Boy or the [[Super Game Boy]]. If using the Super Game Boy the corresponding game's border and color palette will be activated after the game itself is started.
