The Satellaview (Japanese: サテラビュー, Satellaview) is a satellite modem add on for the Super Famicom. It is officially abbreviated BS-X, and downloadable software for the service sometimes include the abbreviation BS.

It was released only in Japan in 1995. Until the service became defunct on June 30, 2000, players could use the Satellaview to connect to the St.GIGA satellite radio company.

A downloadable magazine about the Pokémon Trading Card Game was available beginning from April 1998, called "Monthly Coin Toss: Pokémon Card Magazine".

Additionally, the December 21, 1997 issue of the downloadable magazine "Tora Maga Daisakusen" included a copy of Pokémon Craft, which included a miniature manga about how to make an origami Pikachu. [1]

Tora Maga Daisakusen had a feature about Satella de Picross from December 1997 and people who solved all of the puzzles in it had a chance to win a copy of Pokémon Craft Electric Set, which included papercrafts of Pikachu, Magnemite and Zapdos.[2]
