147 bytes added, 09:50, 7 June 2009
The episode of {{bp|Pokémon Sunday}} today revealed a new device that could connect to {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}. This {{wp|pedometer}} known as the 「ポケウォーカー」''PokéWalker'' will be given to those who purchase HeartGold or SoulSilver.
The PokéWalker has both the shape and colors of a regular {{bp|Poké Ball|Monster Ball}}. It has at least three buttons and a black and white interface. It will allow players of HeartGold and SoulSilver to transfer their Pokémon there. The Pokémon gain {{bp|Experience|experience points}} and {{bp|happiness}} as players walk, somewhat similar to the {{wp|Bandai#Bandai USA|toys}} based on the {{wp|Digivice}} of the {{wp|Digimon}} series. This pedometer may be a remake of {{bp|Pokémon Pikachu 2}}, a toy that can be used to obtain {{bp|Mystery Gift}}s in {{3v2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}}. It is currently unknown if this will be available outside of Japan.
