From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
The Virtual Console (Japanese: バーチャルコンソール Virtual Console) is a service for the Nintendo 3DS, Wii and Wii U that allows players to purchase games originally released on old consoles and play them on official Virtual Console emulators on newer systems. Virtual Console titles are purchased from the Wii Shop Channel (for the Wii) or the Nintendo eShop (for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U).
These are games that have been released for the Wii U Virtual Console. Games from the Wii Virtual Console can also be played on the Wii U by running the console in Wii Mode.
Differences from original games

Reason: images of Jynx in each version.
In the original Nintendo 64 version of Pokémon Snap, players could take their games to certain stores to print stickers of their in-game photos; in the Virtual Console version, players can instead send a photo to the Wii Message Board once per day. Additionally, the Virtual Console release changes Jynx's complexion from black to purple, matching the modern design change.
Similar to Pokémon Snap, the Virtual Console version of Pokémon Trading Card Game has Jynx's skin color changed from black to purple. Due to the lack of infrared hardware, the Card Pop! feature is disabled, leaving Mew Lv15 and Venusaur Lv64 unobtainable. As with all Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console games besides games originally for the Nintendo Entertainment System, Game Gear, and TurboGrafx-16, all multiplayer functionality is disabled, making dueling another player impossible. Finally, since there is no way to connect to the Game Boy Printer or any sort of equivalent (unlike Pokémon Snap), the "Print" option on the PC is disabled.
Again, like all Game Boy Color games for Virtual Console, Pokémon Puzzle Challenge has all its multiplayer functionality made inaccessible since the Game Link Cable is neither supported nor emulated in any way.
The Virtual Console version of Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire has no e-Reader compatibility due to lack of hardware.
