One of the more useful functions of the 3DS is the pedometer, not just for working on that New Years resolution you set earlier this month, but also to get coins that you can redeem in games, such as Steetpass Mii Plaza. However, I thought perhaps a Pokemon game can make use of them. Could Pokemon X and Y have uses for the 3DS' play coins? Or even the Pedometer? Could there be some kind of PokeWalker app making a return?

I think that would go the same way as the PokeWalker:

If I worked for Gamefreak, I would've forgot that function even existed, so it's really doubtful. XD

Well know we all know why you don't! But, although I doubt it, it would be a nifty and alternate way to earn money and items.

I mentioned a while ago in the evolution methods thread they could have an evolution based on the number of steps one walks or coins they have.

I hope they use it, heck they used it in Dream Radar so perhaps we can buy rare pokémon with the play coins.

This would be a very cool way for GF to encourage kids to be more active to unlock things - or even new playable areas or Pokémon - that you otherwise cannot find in the games. Unfortunately, the lazy kids would trade to get the items or otherwise use cheats to acquire them, and where Pokémon are involved they would just import from prior games.

Having items that induce evolution available this way would be awesome. For 10 "Get Out and Get Fit" coins, you can buy a nice and shiny Leaf Stone. Or a red-hot Fire Stone. Or a bright and sparkly Shiny Stone.

I didn't even know the 3DS had a pedometer! I really need to go get one. But nevertheless, I think it could be possibly used because people really loved the PokeWalker from what I recall, and even though it wouldn't exactly be like the PokeWalker, if you could get stuff from the amount of steps in-game and this combined then it might be of use. Like RARE MONS. People love rare things.

I use the pedometer on my 3DS every day so I'd love them to make use of it. I don't really care if it's just some evolutionary stones or something, as long as it's used.

Ah yeah! I completely forgot about the Nintendo 3DS's Pedometer, where you can actually gain one Play Coin for every 100 steps you make. And since the Nintendo 3DS can actually go up to 300 Play Coins as the limit, it would be nice to see some features that would actually cost around 300 Play Coins.

My idea for Play Coins to be used in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y... would be for buying some accessories, such as clothing for your character or Pokémon. It would be really nice to see something like that in a Pokémon game, where Play Coins can actually be used for. Other than that, it could also be used to buy furniture, if they ever implement furniture into the game. ;)

sure does feel like a brand new adventure!

I'm really looking forward to learning how to understand what the hex values mean and how to create programs using Microsoft Visual Studio!

I really hope they don't use this in any noticeable way, because I don't take my 3DS with me when I go out, and I'd prefer not to have to start. It'd be a step up from the thoroughly annoying Xtransceiver functions in the fifth generation, because walking around is something you can do on your own, but if they were going to incorporate this, I'd prefer it to be like the Xtransceiver: entirely optional. Having to evolve a Pokemon by taking however many steps with my 3DS on and it in my party would be innovative to a point, but far too much hassle. Having it serve as an optional substitute for things like hatching eggs would be nice - say the steps you take in real life as well as in-game count towards your egg hatching - but as something you HAVE to do to accomplish certain things, no, absolutely not.

Is it sad that my PokéWalker is still in my SoulSilver box and never been used before? Oops!

In all honestly though, having a pedometer in the 3DS was a nifty idea on Nintendo's part. It's certainly something a parent of a child wouldn't mind seeing. If X and Y uses this feature on the 3DS, then items or Pokémon that aren't noticeably missed if you don't use the feature too often [or at all] is what should be at offer. Just because I didn't use my PokéWalker, and might not even use the 3DS pedometer, doesn't mean it wouldn't be a good feature to include. So, I wouldn't be against the idea.

This is what I was aiming at basically. Using the Play Coins for smaller items and features is how far I'd hope the pedometer expands to with the games, if it's even utilized at all. It keeps the feature from being a requirement for those who normally wouldn't use it and an extra little bonus for those who do.

Yes please. O_O
Like it was said before, using the coins to buy evolutionary items seems good, but I wouldn´t mind an app similiar to the PokéWalker. It could be in the eShop for free.

Worth noting - they'd have to do a fair bit to get me to make use of the pedometer. The pedometer by default isn't even turned on when the 3DS isn't in sleep mode, and I walk and play my games all the time.

You will only be allowed to play for a half hour at a time after walking 500 steps.

There, mission accomplished.

I walk with my 3DS to university and back a lot, so yeah, I would like to see something like the pedometer being put to use, maybe similar to the poke-walker from the remake of Gen II, or otherwise! I'm not quite sure how they can implement that in the game though - maybe it'll have a built-in programmed pedometer on it's own, and there can be an option to get mystery/pedometer gifts and pokemon through the play coins?
