Is Nintendo about to resurrect the forgotten Pokémon Mini?

The late '90s and early '00s were arguably the best time to be a Pokémon fan, with the world awash with Gameboy games, trading cards, TV shows and more. But a close second might be right now, thanks to a new influx of games for the Nintendo Switch. And if new rumours are to be believed, things could be about to get even better with the surprise return of an old gadget.

Released in 2001, the Pokémon Mini was a tamagotchi-sized device capable of playing Pokémon games (and only Pokémon games) from swappable cartridges. And curiously, it just reappeared on the official Nintendo website – sort of. Check out the best Nintendo Switch deals if you want the most cutting edge Pokémon experience available right now.
