the Pokewalker. This is basically a pedometer with some special features. The idea is that when you are done playing Pokemon on your DS, you can keep the experience going by carrying the Pokewalker with you as you walk around. The pedometer feature will give you points, or "watts" the more you walk. In addition, you can have little battles, hunt for little items, and play a kind of slot machine game. The Pokewalker communicates with the DS cartridge via infrared communication, so you can upload your "watts" back to the cartridge, and also download different Pokemon into the pokewalker. In short, do you want to play Pokemon even when you aren't playing Pokemon? Like say, when you are walking to school? Or playing another game, like soccer or basketball? Here in the Gamepocalypse, you can!
