    I've looked on google, and it's given me nothing. I'd assume I'd need an Arduino or Raspberry Pi to encode the video/audio, but how would I go about modding the Pokewalker itself to connect it to the Arduino/Pi? I'd also prefer to be able to just plug in a USB to my Pi/Arduino and have it broadcast to the PC (I use windows). I'd love to use OBS with this, but if i can't, no big deal i guess.

    I don't know much about the Pokewalker, but from a quick Google search, it doesn't look easy. You would have to write a program for the Arduino/Pi to read the data being sent to the screen (first find out what driver IC it uses for the screen, and get a data sheet for it), and turn that into a usable image to copy to your computer.

    If you're trying to do this for a Youtube video or something, it would be way easier to just use a camera to record it.
