Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver Nintendo Media Summit 2010 Pokewalker

HeartGold and SoulSilver allows a Pokémon that the player owns to follow him or her in-game on the overworld. The player may talk to the Pokémon, and occasionally it may pick up certain secret items.[4] A new minigame called the Pokéthlon (called Pokéathlon in the US and Europe) has also been introduced. The game utilizes the Nintendo DS touchscreen and allows Pokémon to compete in events such as hurdling.[5]
The games are bundled with a peripheral called the Pokéwalker, a pedometer that resembles a Poké Ball which can connect to the Nintendo DS game card via infrared signals (in a fashion similar to another Nintendo DS game Personal Trainer: Walking) and can "hold" a Pokémon. Walking with a Pokéwalker holding a Pokémon increases both its experience and closeness, as well as the player's "watts," an in-game currency that can be used to catch wild Pokémon and shop for items.[6][7] Despite the device being included with every game, Nintendo announced that the games would carry standard pricing (around ¥4,800 in Japan).[8]
HeartGold and SoulSilver can access the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and are also fully compatible with Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum.[5]
