If you saw my edit at the bottom of that last post, you'd see that I realized my error.

As for the new one, the whole reason I mentioned it was that I figured it would use something similar to the pedometer in the walking "game". And, I'm pretty sure it's not going to be a Japan-only release--usually Pokemon aren't Japan-only.

Another cool thing about this new Pokemon game--it will include both Johto and Honan (sp?) in it, just like the original.

Actually Mommy_T, I was saying that the pikachu did have a pedometer in it. I had one. ^_^ I guess you can say it was stand alone since it didnt go with red blue or yellow which were out at the time. But it was a pedometer.
Im not sure about this revamped version of it though, Id assume it would use a similar technology as the personal trainer game. Or maybe itll be another awesome game that never leaves Japan.

Warning--really long explanation about Pokemon games...lol.

Actually, this is.gd/1h0dd (the link given below) is a "stand alone" game--sort of like a virtual pet that has taken many forms (I have/had one that was R2-D2).

But there are a whole series of Pokemon games that originally started as Gameboy games (Nintendo's original hand-held gaming console...well, actually I think there were a few before that, but Gameboy was the first that (I believe) was truly successful.

There are some Pokemon games on Gameboy, which are Red, Blue and Yellow. (In Japan it was Red and Green, and Yellow). Yellow was added to follow the anime (Japanese cartoon, also popular in the U.S.) story where Ash got a (yellow, electric) Pikachu to start out with (instead of the standard choice between a fire-type, water-type, and grass-type), but Red and Green were released at the same time. Red and Green were re-released as Fire Red and Leaf Green on the Gameboy Advanced.

Then there was Silver and Gold versions (released at the same time) on the Gameboy Color, which are the ones that are being re-released now on the DS.

After that there were Ruby and Sapphire, and later Emerald for the Gameboy Advanced (also plays on Gameboy Advanced SP and original and Lite versions of the DS, but not the DSi).

Then they released Diamond and Pearl, and later Platinum for the DS (plays on any version of DS, including DSi).

There's also some battle games where two people can battle the Pokemon on a home console instead of just between hand-held systems for various systems through the years. There's also two GameCube (home console) games that have the battling option but also have their own stories to play through. And then there's the card games, that have nothing to do with the video games, other than it's still Pokemon.

So there's a lot of games out about Pokemon, but I'm really curious about this new feature with the meter for walking.


edit: Seems there was a "Crystal" with the Silver and Gold versions...also, now that I've looked more at the website, I realize that it's not "just" a stand-along pet...didn't realize that they had that before. (But Hubby knew...lol.)

Something sorta off target....

Hubby saw something about the new Pokemon games that will be coming out someday on the DS--remakes of the old Gold and Silver games that were on the old Gameboy Color system.

Anyway, there was something said about a walking pedometer being included in it so that you can gain experience for a Pokemon that is downloaded to the pedometer. (That's complicated, for those that aren't familiar with Pokemon....but not so bad if you know what I'm talking about.)

I'm not sure if it's actually downloaded, or if the game just remembers which one you put "on" it, but I was wondering if maybe it'll use the same technology that is being used in this walking "game".

Hmmmmm!!! I am intrigued!!! I did check around on prices for the DS. Since I don't have one already that could be a game ender!

I bought this and I love it. It is more pricey but the pedometer works so great and much better then the one that comes with My Weight Loss Coach, and it came with two for both me and my husband. It keeps track of how many steps you take and what time of the day you take the steps. It also tracks "active" times of day where you walk consecutively for more then 10 minutes. It is easy to use and a lot of fun!

but it also comes with TWO accessories for two people to play--and the DS "chip" is special too, since it has some sort of infrared sensor to connect to the devices--there's a lot of extra hardware with it.

ouch that is pricey, usually the personal trainers are about 20 bucks. I would like a review of this too. I got an email from Nintendo I loved the video you can put the pedometer on your dog too lol

Name: Personal Trainer: Walking
Game Maker: Nintendo
Made for: Nintendo DS
Rating: E (Everyone)


It's a game by Nintendo (Wii manufacturer--which means it's really good quality), but sounds similar to the "My Weight Loss Coach".

The cool thing about this one--it has TWO pedometers in it and can have up to four pedometers registered per game (other pedometers can be bought through Nintendo). Also, they connect differently, so that it can also work with those that have the DSi version of the DS.

I'm actually not sure how much is just a pedometer, though, since it is called an "active meter".

Anybody checked this out yet? I just saw it recently....
