    Not going to be released in the US however this will be good for when I'm at lunch. I'm looking forward to this accessory though.

    I can definitely see this happen.
    This is just something Japan loves, and it's something we can't download.
    If they include this with their games, their will be some pirates that will buy the game instead of downloading it.

    I saw this last night and I had no idea what it was. I just figured Nintendo snuck a smurfmeter from Personal Trainer Walking into Pokemon. But its cool that your actually training your pokemon. It makes training a crappy pokemon like magikarp a little bit easier.

    so they not only remake pokemon silver and gold, but also the pokemon pikachu*?


    *little tamagotchi-style game computer where you play/walk with a pikachu
    walking gives money, money can be used in slots for more money, more money can be given to pikachu to make him happy so he can buy toys.

    This is much better than Pokemon Pikachu because you can use it for any Pokemon and actually trade it back to the real game.

    But it's not even in color.

    Except it's not called PokeWalk because serebii notoriously translates things terribly.

    It MAY come to the US because the US also had the Pokemon Pikachu 2 GS, which was a similar device back in the time of the original Gold and Silver games on GameBoy Color.

    ah yeah.
    would make sense though.

    didn't that thing support mystery gift with g/s/c through the GBC's infrared port?
    too bad we only got the original black and white one where i live.

    That's right. The second version had an IR port so you could exchange your built up points for items to be sent as a gift to the GSC games.

    It seems like something similar will be on this device as well.

    WE WILL FIND A WAY [​IMG] EVERYTHING CAN BE DOWNLOADED [​IMG] ZA INERWEBS WILL HAVE IT

    On topic, for the Pokefans, this is really great, very creative, i'd actually get this if i can. Would be nice to see if it can slowly raise a Pokemon's level as well

    This looks pretty cool, I think. As a user above me said, it's too much like Personal Trainer: walking.

    Get used to it, it's part of the lucrative business of importing.

    I don't mind paying extra for something only a few US residents will have.

    In the video link, seems the name of the device is the "Pokewalker". I remember having the G2 Pikachu back when Gold and Silver were out originally, and shaking the thing repeatedly to get the good items. I imagine I will be doing that again [​IMG]
