Another Nintendo Wii game has made its way onto the Wii U’s Virtual Console platform, this time from the Pokémon spin-off game archives. PokéPark Wii: Pikachu’s Adventure, the first installment of the PokéPark series, is now available to download from the Wii U eShop!
Developed by Creatures, Inc. and originally released back in 2010 in North America, PokéPark Wii has you playing as Pikachu as you attempt to restore order to the titular PokéPark by finding fragments of the Sky Prism and making friends with other Pokémon visiting the park.
The game was notable for being a hybrid Action, Adventure, and Minigame Collection title, with the core gameplay having you completing challenges to befriend other Pokémon in order unlock them as playable characters for various minigames.

Curiously, the Virtual Console version of PokéPark Wii was already released in Europe well back in 2015; it is unknown as to why it has taken so long for the title to make its appearance on the Wii U eShop.
As a bonus, the official Pokémon site has listed all the special passwords needed to unlock certain Pokémon as well as alternate versions of Pikachu. Here’s the list pulled directly from the official site:
