This is a fan group dedicated to the video game Pulseman, created by Game Freak and released in 1994 on the SEGA Mega Drive. Pulseman was only available in Japan until it was made available as an exclusive game on the SEGA Channel, then later released internationally for the Wii Virtual Console in 2009. It was one of the last Mega Drive games, and the last game released by Game Freak before they started their Pokemon series. Many Pulseman references appear in Pokemon, one of the most notable being Pikachu's signature move, Volt Tackle (Volteccer in Japan), which is derived from Pulseman's special move, Volteccer.
Besides the game itself, which is available in the Wii Shop for 900 points (100 more than most Genesis titles for being an import), the only other official Pulseman media which exists are three music releases: Electrace Pulseman (Stereotype, 1994), Pulseman (various artists, 1995), and Mega Drive: Last Action Heroes (Pulseman game OST with Ristar, Comix Zone, and Virtua Racing, 2010).
