View Full Version : [B/W] PokeWalker... Or More?

What do you think? Will/should an upgraded version of the PokeWalker be included with Black and White? Or maybe something else like another piece of hardware? There's so many possibilities.. maybe they'll just go traditional and just have the game included.

What are your opinions? I honestly think it will just be the game.

I too think it will just be the game. From a money making perspective though, the Pokewalkers were pretty successful and popular, hell...I still see some people walking around with them.

I think it's hard to tell for sure. I think that if we see a Pokewalker-type device, it might not be until the 3rd game is released. Just to make it *that* more special.

May 15th, 2010, 08:31 PM
Yeah, there are dozens of people around my high school that walk around with them.. I can't even imagine the middle or elementary school. lol

I see your point.. if they made something like that every time they made a game, it would lose it's pizz-az. But who knows? Maybe they'll come out with some super-amazing piece of hardware to go along with the game.

I don't really use my pokewalker. I think some modifications need to be made to it before I'd ever use it again. For some reason with me I've always had problems with connecting the pokewalker to my DS. Like they wouldn't have anything between them and then after a like a minute of problems it works then gets interrupted!! Me and my luck XD.

I want just the game, no extra stuff to make the box bulkier. Just a good old game, like the old days.

May 15th, 2010, 08:42 PM
I'd like for the poke-walker to be used for something else other then HG/SS. what else was the transfer pack for pokemon stadium good for?

Arcelio
May 15th, 2010, 08:56 PM
If there was one modification I'd like for the PokéWalker to have, it'd be trading between PokéWalkers. That's the one thing I was really hoping for, and I didn't get it.

Also, I'd like Nintendo to fix a few small errors with the PokéWalker. Small things like 'Your Pokémon returned to the Wild', or other such nonsense needs to be done away with. Also, I didn't like the fact that sometimes, it just refused to connect to HeartGold & SoulSilver.

Other than those few faults, I think it's a great add-on, and should be included in Pokémon Black & White. However, I think they should also sell a separate version that doesn't have the PokéWalker, that way, for those that kept theirs from HeartGold & SoulSilver, they don't have to pay extra for a peripheral they already have.

Oh yeah, I want PokéWalker skins. I don't know why, but I just like skins on my DSi, so why can't we have skins for a PokéWalker?

Eurydice
May 15th, 2010, 08:56 PM
i think it will be just the game. maybe have something special that works with all three but is only sold with the 3rd game. i can see them doing something like that to make people buy the third game

Kirbychu

I think we probably will be getting an upgraded Pokewalker, since GF has been making such a big deal about the little doohickeys. I used my Pokewalker one time... It never returned home...

Waffle-San

I love the Pokewalker. I know alot of people at my High School still carry it around and I put it in my change pocket and walk around with it all day everyday. I'd hope for an upgraded one though, like Arcelio said, trading would be ideal. It's so much easier than lugging around the DS and frankly it'd be a whole lot quicker!

I would want like it to make a return in BW! I enjoy walking with it and getting Watts!

I reckon they should make a thing that goes in the gba slot and for those who bought a nintendo DSi can go get stuffed,
More people use ndsl....

This may seem childish, but I'd love to have some kind of tamagotchi for Pokémon. A bit like the Pocket Pikachu, but you'd be able to transfer any Pokémon to it. I think kids will love that xD

JakeG

I am pretty sure the PokeWalker and even sadly Pokemon following behind you was just for HG/SS and will never be continued, the PokeWalker, unless massively upgraded, I wouldn't really care for with new games, but Pokemon following behind you? :( I will dearly miss it.

Team Fail
May 16th, 2010, 06:57 AM
Honestly, I'd like the Pokewalker. BUT, there would haveto be small differences, first.

1. Different way to communicate
HG/SS uses IR, and these Pokewalkers.... Well, shouldn't. Why? Well, A) Easier to communicate with the game, and B) It won't be compatible (I'll explain in point 2).

2. Compatibility
The HG/SS Pokewalkers only have Numbers 1-493 in Pokemon, so if you had Zorua or Pokabu, it would mess the Pokewalker up.

I'd like a Pokewalker with these games, but don't hold your breath.

Mew~
May 16th, 2010, 07:06 AM
I don't think at all they will add the pokewalker with it or upgrade it in anyway!
I think they may keep the feature in the game cart though...! So it might have pokewalker compatability!

Hiroshi Sotomura
May 16th, 2010, 07:08 AM
I doubt we'll get a special cartridge for backwards support with the Pokéwalker. After all, it was meant to be tied to a game. I don't expect a killer feature like this to appear for a new generation game straight away, and we've seen GameFreak reserve a lot of cool stuff for the remakes.

Zorua
May 16th, 2010, 07:33 AM
To be honest, we already have a pedometer, I can't think of anything else that can be utilized in the same manner as the Pokewalker. Although it would be a pretty nice addiction, it wouldn't be necessary.

Yamikarasu
May 16th, 2010, 07:44 AM
I already lost both of my pokewalkers. Yeah. ;_;

I loved the pokewalkers, but I think they should just be a unique part of HGSS. They didn't add tons to gameplay, although they definitely made them more social. Lots of my friends at school are still carrying them around everyday.

So I would say Game Freak should come up with a new gimic for Black and White. Maybe they could have a Wii Channel that goes with the game? Not like PokeRanch, but more like how the MarioKart Channel was for MarioKart Wii.

ah, I didn't even think about that.. it's really going to suck if you can't make Pokemon follow behind you anymore.. :(

I really regret never using the PokeWalker when my Heart Gold was bought, and now, it's too late, It was broken.. So I would love it to come back, with new features even! Then I can have a chance to see what it is like, plus, it's good to stay fit, even though I ride my bike around the neighborhood everyday.

I dunno if you guys saw my post in the Speculation thread but I'm pretty sure that they're gonna include a Pokewalker-type device in BW after reading a interview in a Nintendo Power magazine, here, I'll post the interview for you guys:

Do you have any other ideas for allowing gamers to extend their Pokemon experience into the real world a la the Pokewalker accessory?
Morimoto: Yes, we have many ideas. I hope we can implement them in the future.
Ohmori: When we were developing the Pokewalker, we discussed some ideas that weren't realized in this game, but could be found in future games. It is our dream to further connect the Pokemon world and our real world, so we continue to come up with new ideas to help us achieve that goal.

..... Yeah, I dunno about you guys but to me it sounds like they're working on some new Pokewalker-thingy ;)

Cloud197
May 25th, 2010, 01:54 AM
So I've been thinking, do you think they will make a pokewalker type peripheral for B/W?

To be honest, the pokewalker is what got me back into the games. When I heard about it, I hadn't played a single pokemon game since Emerald. That very day I went and bought SoulSilver.

But to be back on topic, I honestly think that the Pokewalker was a great idea. It actually was something I had hoped for way back when the Pokemon Pikachu 2 was released. I always thought "Hey, maybe someday they'll make one that you can put your pokemon from the GB games on."


Anyways, do you think it will return in Generation V?

I also dont know if pokewalker is great idea cause everyone is cheating it

May 25th, 2010, 02:09 AM
No need for a new Pokewalker this soon after original. Plus, what would they add? You can probably just use the first one with BW

Myles
May 25th, 2010, 02:30 AM
It might become a third version feature. Anyway, some better graphics with it could be cool.

Azzurra
May 25th, 2010, 02:34 AM
This is very plausible. But, if it's going to be anything like the earlier versions, it would have to be obtained later on in the game.

Penutz
May 25th, 2010, 02:36 AM
Im not fancy about the pokewalker. It would be cool if they could combine it with Gen V. But it said on the game "Pokewalker is only compatiable with pokemon heart gold and soul silver".

The only time i use pokewalker is when i go for jogs

RivalGator
May 25th, 2010, 02:45 AM
I don't really think that a new one is really going to be needed. I mean, we already got these. They were good, I'm not saying they weren't, but it's a bit soon to be throwing out new and updated PokeWalkers. But. Maybe they will. But I'm happy with the two I got, so. I don't really want, like, 2 more.

((And personally I think it should be a one-time thing. It marked HG/SS. I personally think that it should remain a HG/SS thing strictly, but that's just me. Maybe come out with something similar, of course, but... I dunno.))

I'm sure they'll think of something to go with the new version, even if it's not a Pokewalker.

I'dl ove for it to come back for B/W. It's my favorite device for Pokemon to this day and I go everywhere with it. hopefully I can walk with a Zoroark one day. :O

Okami Chi
May 25th, 2010, 06:18 AM
They could make the Pokewalker for SS and HG work for B&W...but I really doubt that...:(

Timbjerr
May 25th, 2010, 10:57 AM
Making an upgrade from the original so soon would definitely be folly, but since the HGSS Pokewalker would definitely be incompatible with any GenV pokemon, if B/W did have compatibility with the pokewalker, you'd be severely limited in what pokemon you can take for a walk and whatnot.

Since HGSS were like special commemorative remakes of GSC, I don't foresee anything as special as another version of the pokewalker until the next set of remakes. :P

PiPVoda
May 25th, 2010, 12:05 PM
I hate the pokewalkers. At first they seemed awesome, but then when I used it and my lv.20 vulpix only went up like two levels when I took around 4,000 steps I decided that I hated the crap :P. The only use it to level up extremely weak pkmn (which IMO is what it mainly seems to be for) but it they are going to make one for b&w then the whole experience points gained per one step is going to have to be fixed.

May 28th, 2010, 03:01 PM
do you think the pokewalker will be brought back for black and white?

TDow

hope it will that would be a waste of a pokewalker if we couldnt use it.
Just to have it for 2 games would be boring.

Judging by how they wouldn't shut up about it before HGSS was released, I bet we'll be seeing that little Burger King toy in the future.

I thought someone already amde this thread, anyways I hope it is since it's a really cool feature in the series and shouldn't die out like the past gimmicks.

There's a possibility that we may use the current Pokéwalker (the one we got with HG/SS) with Pokemon Black & White, who knows.

PiPVoda
May 28th, 2010, 04:45 PM
No I don't. The thing I hated about the pokewalker was that you only got 1 exp. point per step..Sure that is what it's intended to be buy after walking around school one day and coming home to over 3,800 steps my lv.20 vulpix was only at level 21! If they're gonna bring it back then they need to fix the exp. points gained per step. I'd like it if it were say 2 instead of one :D.

Other than that, we still have HG/SS pokewalkers, making new ones would mean me having like four of 'em (b/c I intend to get both black and white sooner or later).

When you leave your Pokemon at the Daycare center they get 1 Exp point per step, but I guess that's different in a way

It would be nice if they kept the pokewalker but made improvements, like the xp. I really like the pokewalker, but I usually let my boyfriend wear it around, I think he likes it more for the fashion statement though xD

SpawnHyuuga
May 28th, 2010, 05:04 PM
The Pokewalker is definitely a nice thing. Yeah, I could see it being a Burger King toy or McDonalds - but they really wouldn't have any use unless you had Black or White right? At least upload a special event Pokemon to the toy, that you can play with; and then if you have B/W it can be switched over.

Eurydice
May 28th, 2010, 05:04 PM
i would like it if they brought back the pokewalkers. but i would like that they added to it. make it so you can gain more than one level each time.

Esmas
May 28th, 2010, 05:11 PM
We may see a return of it, but it will probably be different. Ya know, like a Pokéwalker 2.0. Maybe it'll match the Black and White Versions, i.e., black design for Black and white design for White. Surely it will have more features, as I don't think the current Pokéwalker has any info or data on the new Pokémon, and it wouldn't be compatible.

Uh, you can only level up once per walk. That way, you can't abuse it and level up something like 20 times in one afternoon jog.

Well wish I knew that. I don't see why it's limited to one level per walk. We could argue about it all day and night but really the whole one exp per step was just like in the daycare (like Suicune said) however it was a heck of a lot easier to say ride your bike up and down a city for a few minutes and have a low-leveled pokemon up by like 5-9 levels. Is this cheating? Maybe. Can it be compared to the pokewalker? In a way possibly..but I'd prefer not to go down that path.

It isn't meant to be a massive leveling machine. It was an idea to trick people into exercising - Getting rare Pokemon and gaining a level is just a bonus. If you don't like it, then by all means don't use it for leveling - Just use it for the special Pokemon or for rare TM's or something.

FloatingClouds
May 29th, 2010, 03:11 PM
They probably won't get a new pokewalker but something new so they can buff up the price ( soon pkmn games will cost like $100, ahhh!)

Leki
May 29th, 2010, 11:40 PM
Seeing as they kept it in the box and made it go with your game, and it'd be stupid to make new technology that'll only stick around for 2 games in an ever expanding series...

Yeah, I think they'll be back.

I enjoyed carrying my Pokes around, even if they didnt level up fast.

Saxisai
June 3rd, 2010, 03:43 AM
I have no clue if this topic has been done before, but do you think they will incorporate the Pokewalker into Black and White? Or do you think they might come up with something "better"? (Or just leave the entire thing out?)

As well as the current absence of the Pokewalker, based on the screenshots so far, do you think that they are going to leave the pokemon walking behind you left out this time around? Or do you think they are going to let you deside if you want one to walk behind you or not? (i.e. an option in-game) Would you be upset if they let these things out?

Mew~
June 3rd, 2010, 04:11 AM
I don't think they will add the pokewalker to the package lol but they might keep the pokewalker funtions in the game with the reciver in the cartridge... though theres no chance in getting 5th gen pokes in there then.. NEW POKEWALKER...!

The pokewalker 2 should have a color screen, prpoer battling, more minigames and (might not happen) touchscreen.

So basically you want a mini DS to take with you? xD

I think they'll probably release something similar to the Pokewalker, it was clearly such a success but I don't think they're gonna want to repeat themselves. I like the idea of the different designs for Black and White though, it sounds like something that would tie into what they're doing.
Basically, I think if we don't get another pokewalker, we're gonna get something similar anyways.

Tanaki
June 12th, 2010, 09:58 AM
I personally think the pokewalker was a friggin' horrible idea. The way they portrayed it in the commercials was that you could just level up your pokemon by walking around, which is only half true, but the fact remains that you can only level up one freakin' level per trip. It would be neat if it was an option to transfer over the watts of the pokewalker over to a game or keep them on the walker, but it forces it, which gets really annoying. It doesn't display the level or even the gender of a pokemon to ease the process. If you caught 3 pokemon and caught another and you don't remember which one is which, good luck. This also means that if you named yourself the same thing in 2 different games it's a complete pain to remember which game is which unless you keep an ungodly good track of how many watts you've obtained in each game. It doesn't offer really any good items or even pokemon unless you have the event routes or unless you've collected up 10000 watts, in other words walked 200000 steps or about 37 miles, give or take based on how sensitive your pokewalker is. Often times when walking with it it'll turn on without me even noticing because it has no mechanism to keep it off, which is total crap. You can keep it in your pocket, but then it turns on and more often than not wastes up your watts pocket-dowsing and using the radar, and the clamps on mine turned to crap after one day of wearing them on my belt and they fall off like mad, and wearing them on the outside of your clothing lets you run the risk of getting unsightly scuffs and scratches. The only Items I wanted from the friggin' things were the berries, but I have to walk upwards of 75 miles to get even close, and I have to have 8000 steps racked up if I want the 5 percent of finding it with the dowsing machine. And if you lose your pokewalker and you have upwards of 50000 watts racked up, good luck not throwing your ds against the wall if you have to get a replacement, because all of those watts are GONE. You keep your routes but you have to rack up all those watts again. I'd rather excavate in Platinum. Everyone cheats the walkers anyways, so what's the point? And we lost the poke-radar because of the walkers. There goes me getting all enthusiastic about the game because I can hope that I can try to catch a shiny pokemon in a swarm. I despise everything about the stupid things. They suck. Never again. Now every time I'm in a store I have the habit of walking around a lot trying to get more steps and I'm not even wearing the walkers and I just end up with sore feet.

Oh yes, that is the part of the Pokewalker that I always hated! It's particularly annoying in the Yellow Forest course, since the only Pokemon there is Pikachu, and you can't tell which one has Surf, which one has Fly, which one has Volt Tackle, etc. I've probably ended up releasing several rare ones because I could no tell from the information given. Other than that, I really like the Walker. Hopefully they fix those flaws, though, if they release a new one.

Olliee
June 12th, 2010, 12:44 PM
Not gonna happen. The Pokewalker was something special to mark the remake, much like the "wireless link cable" for FRLG XD...

But yeah, I didn't even really like the feature at all to be honest, It completely ruined the nostalgia of GS by making pokemon like staryu and kangaskhan obtainable from the beginning.

spider-freak123
June 12th, 2010, 03:24 PM
it would be good to have the pokewalker you used in HG/SS to also be the pokewalker for B/W version...i think the pokewalker graphics are pretty cool i mean at least you can see the pokemons head and body in it and the outline of the pokemon.although maybe in the future they will send out expansion packs for more features for your pokemon to get more watts and maybe level up your pokemon more then once,for the pokewalker.

Tsavo
June 12th, 2010, 03:39 PM
I don't personally like the pokewalker (they had to empty the warehouse of outdated Tamagotchi's somehow). But it's an optional feature, so I suppose it wouldn't hurt to include it for those who enjoy it.

Bluerang1
June 12th, 2010, 04:33 PM
PokeWalker and FollowMe are things I think were just HGSS exclusive, to make them stand out. As for me, I don't mind having one or not. It's be nice to have one with BW since I don't have HGSS, yet.

Zorua
June 12th, 2010, 04:41 PM
To be honest, I really hope not. Then again, it really wouldn't matter to me seeing as I have never even used my pokewalkers yet ever since I got both HGSS.

Charizard632
June 12th, 2010, 05:49 PM
We should include the PokeWalker in Pokemon Black and White, or we should not.

Pros
Your pokemon gets leveled up faster
You get to exercise while training your pokemon (unless you know the cheat)

Cons
The Pokewalker can get easily lost or stolen, and then get damaged.

Pac-Man1096

They probably won't make a new PokéWalker, because if you noticed, they only bundle accsessories with the remake games. For example, Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen came with the Wireless Adapter, and HeartGold and SoulSilver came with the PokéWalker.
Mabye if you continue GameFreak's remake theory, something's bound to be bundled with these games someday in the way later generation remakes of Black and White Version.

I thought the PokéWalker was a trick to make people buy the game instead of downloading it... However, Nintendo is developing anti-piracy techniques in their games (as in the last Zelda game on DS for example), so maybe there's no need for them to include a gadget.

I would want one though, if it's different from the HG/SS Pokéwalker...

I'm happy with the pokewalker from HG/SS. I don't really want another one, the one we have now has tons of routes and they always have events unlocking new ones on the Pokemon site. There's enough to keep me occupied.

Advancing the Pokewalker wouldn't make much sense because well, why do we need a mini pocket DS?

And besides...adding the Pokewalker in there added an extra $10 to HG/SS. So I had to spend $20 more than normal (since I bought both games). I really don't wanna spend another 20, when we already have something that's just fine the way it is.

hehe, Sure. The PokeWalker I got with my Heart Gold didn't work, so I destroyed it :|
So it would be a great thing for me to have another PokeWalker added with these games. :)

No I don't. The thing I hated about the pokewalker was that you only got 1 exp. point per step..Sure that is what it's intended to be buy after walking around school one day and coming home to over 3,800 steps my lv.20 vulpix was only at level 21! If they're gonna bring it back then they need to fix the exp. points gained per step. I'd like it if it were say 2 instead of one :D.

Other than that, we still have HG/SS pokewalkers, making new ones would mean me having like four of 'em (b/c I intend to get both black and white sooner or later).

the pokewalker was made so you can get some cool rare pokemon pretty easily

The Pokewalker was introduced to keep the tradition of having peripherals with remakes. At least, that's what I understand. With Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf Green, there was the GBA Wireless Adapter which allowed people to trade Pokemon without use of a link cable. And with Heart Gold and Soul Silver, the Pokewalker was a peripheral introduced to allow trainers to get Pokemon that are outside of Johto (therefore eliminating the need for the catridge games and encouraging more people to get the DSi) in an intuitive way.

do any of you think that they will make the PW2 for black and white?

from the screen shots maybe not, but it could be possible right?

I don't think they'll make a new one but maybe the current one will be compatible with B&W, although I also doubt it.

I already have two... unless it looks cooler (I'd really love a Great Ball or Ultra Ball model)... they'll probably just tack on compatability with the HG/SS Pokéwalker

i want them to at least include a pokewalker in the box. the L button on my DS won't work, so I can't restart my pokewalker.
