Feature: The Bizarre History of Pokémon Technology

Ever since the Game Boy link cable connected rival trainers together in Pokémon Red and Blue, the famed monster-catching franchise has been fascinated with novel technology. Pick an eccentric doodad at random from Nintendo's library of experiments and you're certain to find a guinea Tepig tagging along to make sure it's safe for mass consumption. Battling other players was a no-brainer, but exchanging data via trades was largely uncharted territory back in the early '90s and blazed a trail for years to come.

Nintendo Life looks at some notable examples of Pokémon's dalliances with different ideas and technological gizmos. (3DS, Nintendo, Pokemon, Retro, Tech)
