A PikaGame box
Release date 2001
Manufacturer PRIMA
System PolyStation

Pikagame or Pikágame, sometimes referred to as ぁどきおウか (adokiouka and sometimes shortened as adoki), is a Pokémon-themed PolyStation. It was sold sometime in 2001 by a Thailand-based company called PRIMA (บริษัท ไพรม่า เวิลด์ จำกัด bris̄ʹạth phị rm̀ā weild̒ cảkạd). The console itself is a standard Famiclone, and comes with a VCD, two controllers, a light gun (similar to the Nintendo Zapper), and one cartridge.

The Pikachu on the front of the box notably has an odd, white symbol on its head, a tail unlike Pikachu's and more akin to Raichu's, and a Star-Spangled Banner shirt.

Games

The contents of a PikaGame box.

Super 500 in 1 title screen.

The PikaGame comes with its own cartridge. Despite the sticker claiming it to be a "7-in-1", the in-game title says "Super 500 in 1". Indeed, however, only seven games are listed in available photos. Although, there is a probable chance there are more games beyond seven, as a Japanese blog poster writes about the console's games:

"I looked over the titles of all 500 games [...] Moreover, if the difficulty of a game varies even slightly, it is included as its own title. So, in reality, there aren't even 20 ~ 30 games."[1]

The list of games that are known in this cart as they are listed are:

  1. Teletubbies
  2. Soccer
  3. Olympic 1p
  4. Duck Hunt
  5. Jewel Tetris
  6. Clay Shooting
  7. Olympic 2p

The inside of another PikaGame box, perhaps an early version. Note the lack of a VCD and the generic Famiclone cart.


The contents inside the PikaGame box are prone to changing based on what iteration you buy. While the core is the same—two controllers, a toy gun, a cartridge and the console itself—the labeling on the cartridge itself varies, and some fail to supply a VCD.

Japanese text

The back of the PikaGame box

In the East, PikaGame has gained the nickname "adokiouka" through its use of butchered Japanese. The text which spawned the name and moreover is present on every version of the PikaGame box is typically placed right below the logo. Spelled ぁどきおウか, it is complete gibberish and holds no meaning. Likewise, the text on the bottom of the box reads:

くうるりろてつちとたいぇゆいよやういぷぴぽぱあさせ。あせすしそでづぢどだ。PRIMAぃげぐぎごがへふひほじ。ゔぃぉゔぁくぃぉくぁっジィウオゆういちゆきおむみもめ。

Which, besides the word "PRIMA", is gibberish. The lower half on the back transcribed is much of the same.

ぁどきおウかくぇくぁえうるりえおらかゔぁなにのん。ゔぃぷぱぺづどくぃくきこかさふぃふふぉづどぴぬも 2001ずじしくぃくぉがはじゅじぇあういあおえうえあ。

It lists the release date however, that being 2001.

PikáGame2

PikáGame 2, found on a Thai website.

The existence of PikáGame2 (PikaGame2), while confirmed, is much harder to come by. Very few images of its existence are available, but one can be found on a Thai e-marketplace. Many of the contents remain unchanged, save for a new artwork on the box. The Famiclone includes two cartridges, as opposed to PikaGame's one, and the controllers have been modified slightly. It comes with its own 7-in-1 cartridge, although the contents of it remain unknown.
