Spin-off Pokémon games are games that do not fit the model used by the core series and are not developed by Game Freak. These games vary widely in genre, and cover many different consoles and handheld game systems. Sometimes, it is possible to connect the core series games to certain spin-off games in order to get a reward, normally a special Pokémon.
