Default Pokéwalker

After finally deciding to take a look at the Pokwalker in the bottom of my backpack, it seems like it still works and has been counting steps almost every single day (excluding about a month where I forgot to replace the battery). It's still counting, too!

2.5 million steps over 1,083 days.

*does some quick math* That means you were walking an average of about 2,381 steps a day. At least when you have your backpack with you. I think the recommended amount of steps to walk per day is around 10,000 steps, but who needs to get in shape?

The ones I stole from Cat have dead batteries, but when I tested them out, they had under a million steps each.

Hey Fuzzles? Did you find my Pokewalker in the Los Vegas airport with Mewtwo on it yet? Yeah... two years ago, I went to Vegas. I lost my Pokewalker as I wore shorts with shallow pockets that day and it fell out on the floor while sitting down briefly to eat breakfast. I'm thankful that HG/SS had the feature to retrieve your Pokemon back to your game without the Pokewalker at least. I should really see if they have a place to purchase new Pokewalkers from. I slightly doubt it though, sadly.

You can actually buy a new one directly from Nintendo for $9+shipping.

I grabbed mine out of a basket a couple of months ago and have been carrying it around since replacing the battery. I found a Dratini on it while on holiday, and I've made it a challenge to myself that I'll get it to level 98 using only the Pokéwalker (Two levels saved to evolve it). It's currently level 49, with my SoulSilver save not even past Cherrygrove yet

I have a slowpoke on mine right now. Hence the name of my everstone-holding slowpoke: pokepal

Does anyone still use a Pokéwalker? Mine pretty much was retired soon after my opening post because the battery died and the 3DS had a functional pedometer.

I found the Poké Walker to be the only realistic way to legitimately raise anything to Level 100 in HeartGold/SoulSilver (I ran cross country in high school, tended to net a decent number of steps every day.) Plus I liked confusion people when I'd pull it out to try to catch Dratini and stuff at school during lunch and whatnot.

Wonder if the batter inside is still alive. Probably . . .

Nope, I tried likewise and was blocked due to the HM move.

Stopped using it after I missed out on certain Pokewalker events and after I restarted my HG. After that it really had no sentimental value to me. I'm not even going to pull it out to check it's battery because it's just like a collector's item to me now.

I think the only thing that was good to get from pokewalker (besides the pikachu's) was munchlax with selfdestruct
