Before Miitomo, there was a game for NTT DoCoMo FOMA 900i series mobile phones called Pokémate which apparently had development by Square Enix. Does anyone know if there were any more examples? Thanks.

I wasn't able to find the exact answer re: Pokémate. Possibly with a good search using its Japanese name there could be some light. However, I did find out there was another Nintendo online service in Japan, known as simply "Nintendo Mobile" which I posted on the wiki I'm an admin of. Since it only ended a few years ago you may have heard of it if you live in Japan.
This was where you could use a pre-smart device via i-mode to access a Nintendo browser (similar to the past Mobile Home Page, BS Nintendo HP, Randnet(?) ones). Here you could download Nintendo music or sound effects, including a limited time only Mother 3 Theme of Love download. It may not be directly related to Pokémate, but it seems details of how it works are similar.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.
