So to anyone who reads this in the future, I worked out a way to do it (this only works for devices that can use workflow).
I created a new pocket account and then went through the Unusual Wikipedia Articles list, adding each article to this new Pocket account (Note: you can tag them if you want to do this with a Pocket account you use for other stuff, but for that I recommend going through afterwards, mass tagging them with the multi-select tool).
Then I bought and downloaded Workflow onto my iPad and iPhone and used this workflow (https://workflow.is/workflows/4e52c3ac672b4a3ba75ff6efb69f9f76) adjusting the notification it prompts you to something of my own choosing.
It works. In addition you could probably tamper the workflow slightly to have it prompt you at certain times if you want to but I haven't got round to trying.
Thanks for the help though!
