Can you use the Wii U pro Controller to play regular wii games?

I noticed the WII U PRO Controller does not have a wire that needs to be connected to the wii mote (like the classic controller).

So:

Can you use the Wii U pro Controller to play regular wii games? What about Virtual console titles?

Does it or does it not have a wire? What about rechargeable battery?

I want to play Virtual Console and Wii games on the Wii U using the new WII U PRO controller WITHOUT ANY WIRES--- CAN I DO THIS?

It likely depends on what kind of controllers the games themselves support. If they only support Wii Remotes, then it's not likely to support the Pro controller. But if they supported the Wii Classic Controller, then the WiiU Pro controller will likely work for them.

This is mostly just speculation.

That seems to make sense and that's what I thought. So hopefully any game that supports Classic controller also allows WII U PRO
