    For anybody that pirated Pokemon HG an SS you can get a pokewalker for a very low cost of 8.95. Call Nintendo at 1 800 255 3700 and tell them that you were running with your Pokewalker and while running it fell off and you stepped on it and broke it. they will tell you can pay 9.00 for a replacement and say yes. All they need is address and credit card. No product code or serial numbers. :-) ENJOY!!!

    You do know the cart has an IR port on it so it can actually communicate with the Pokewalker, right? Flashcards won't work, because obviously they don't have IR ports.

    Yeah, that's what I was about to say. I don't think the Pokewalker was really worth either. I played with it for a day, and stopped. Though I think the game is worth $40 itself, I've always liked the Gold and Silver series.

    EDIT - Oh, and you can only be able a inch or two in order to connect with each other, any further, and they won't read it.

    Personally, I love the Pokewalker. Then again, my liking for it will probably wear off in a month or so. The game however, is worth more than $40...After all, you can go to Kanto and do everything there.

    I still carry my Pokewalker around with me when I go out, but other than that, I don't know what to do with it. That's what I liked most about Gold and Silver, after you are done with Johto, continue your journey in Kanto, and fight a certain somebody in the end.

    It won't work unless you have the actual game 100% positive

    I thought it just connected to the DS not the card. I was pretty sure of that, I find it hard to believe it attaches to the card. hmmm I definitely need confirmation of this 100% after my statement

    If you buy the actual game you'd know because it's stated in the manual. [​IMG]
    Funny how that works out, eh?

    It uses IR, NOT WIFI. The DS itself does not do IR, the cart itself has an IR port.

    1 - The pokewalker uses infrared.

    2 - The DS does not have infrared.

    3 - The game cartridge is a slightly different design, is black instead of grey, and has NTR-031 on the back, whereas normal game carts are part NTR-005, indicating there's a physical/technological difference.
