Pokemon HeartGold Version and Pokemon SoulSilver Version return players to the scenic Johto region first introduced in the beloved original Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver games nearly a decade ago. The richly detailed adventure of Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver is now enhanced for the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi systems with updated graphics and sound, as well as new touch-screen features and a host of surprises. Pokemon HeartGold Version and Pokemon SoulSilver Version bring dozens of Pokemon characters back into the limelight for a new Pok?mon generation - and longtime fans - to catch, train and battle.
The Pokewalker Included:
The Pokewalker is a special pedometer that you carry with you that lets you take Pokemon fun wherever you go! You can transfer a Pokemon onto the Pokewalker accessory using an infrared connection between the Pokewalker and your Game Card. Then as you Stroll around with your Pokemon, it'll earn Experience Points to gain a level. And you can even find items and special Pokemon while you're on the go! The Pokewalker is small enough that you can keep it in your pocket and take wherever you go. It also has a clip to hook it on your belt, and a hole for attaching a strap. It's never been easier to take Pokemon with you!
Pokewalker The Pokewalker counts the number of steps you take as you walk around. The more steps you take, the more Watts you earn, which you can spend to find items and Pokemon!
When you transfer a Pokemon from your game into your Pokewalker, you can select which Route you'd like to take your Pokemon along. Depending on which Route you take (such as in a grassland or by the sea), you'll encounter different wild Pokemon and find remarkable items. When you first begin your journeys with the Pok?walker, the list of Routes you can select from is short. But, the more you take a Stroll with your Pokemon, the more Routes will appear and the more Pokemon and items you?ll be able to get!
Catch Wild Pokemon!
After you've collected some Watts by going on a Stroll with your Pokemon, spend some of them to use the Poke Radar to catch wild Pokemon! If you see tall grass rustling after you use the Poke Radar, you know you?ve found a Pokemon. You have three options in the battle. You can attack, evade, or catch the wild Pokemon. By attacking, you can wear down the wild Pokemon to make it easier to catch. If you choose to evade when the wild Pokemon attacks, you'll perform a counterattack! And when you think the timing is right, throw a Poke Ball to catch the Wild Pokemon. You can keep up to three caught Pokemon in your Pokewalker at a time. If you catch a fourth Pokemon, you must choose one of them to set free.
Use the Pokewalker's Dowsing Machine to help find items. Like the Poke Radar, you use the Watts you earned while walking to use the Dowsing Machine. Some of the items you can find are quite uncommon! When you use the Dowsing Machine, you'll see six patches of tall grass, and one of them has a hidden item in it. You have only two chances to discover the item! Some of the items you can get are really hard to find and very valuable, so keep hunting!
Time to Transfer!
Once you've found Pokemon and items using your Pokewalker, you can send them back to your Pokemon game. You can only keep up to three Pokemon and three items in your Pokewalker at a time, so be sure to send them to your game when your inventory fills up! Remember, if you catch a fourth Pokemon in your Pokewalker, you?ll have to swap out one of the three Pokemon you've already caught.
The Pokewalker Journal
After your Pokemon has spent some time in your Pokewalker, you can get a recap in the Pokewalker Journal. The journal tells of all the places the Pokemon has been and the things it has found while traveling inside your Pokewalker! For example, if you catch a particular Pokemon while out on a Stroll, your Pokewalker Journal will make note of it. It will also keep track of how your Pokemon has behaved while inside your Pokewalker!
Pokewalkers Communicate with Each Other!
The Pokewalkers don't communicate only with Game Cards - they can also communicate with each other! When you connect Pokewalkers with a friend, you'll both receive an item as a gift! You can connect two Pokewalkers via infrared signal by pointing them at each other. When you do so, both players will receive an item! You can receive up to ten items by connecting to your friends, but you can get only one gift per person, per day.
