    It's not like I'm gonna use it a lot but I'd be pissed to see my pokemon trapped inside a dead pokewalker. So, is there a way to replace it should the battery run dry?

    yepo, you can easily replace the battery, just go to any watch seller and ask for the CR2032 battery and replace it with your current one, simple as that.

    computer stores sell those too(standard bios battery)

    and besides, it's not possible to get a pokemon stuck in a pokewalker.
    from what i've read the pokemon is stored in persistent memory(like the memory in a USB stick) and only progress from while it was in the pokewalker is erased.
    and it is possible to retrieve the pokemon without the pokewalker near your DS, but you'll get it back exactly the way it was before you sent it to the pokewalker.

    Let's make it easy:

    You can use the round flat batteries found in watches (which you can buy in a store similar to RadioShak)

    All you have to do is open the back of your pokewalker and switch the batteries

    Now according to the manual (because I READ IT) the battery will live around 4 months if you use your pokewalker max 30mins/day and 10,000 steps/day.

    When the battery dies our is about to die, you don't have to worry about loosing your pokemon because the pokewalker is set to save once every hour.
