In today's episode of Pokemon Sunday, Shoko announced the new PokéWalker (ポケウォーカー) portable device that allows players of the upcoming Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver games to transfer their Pokemon to the device to train them on the go. The device includes a pedometer which allows people to train their Pokémon up to level 100 by walking around. The device also looks like it will have mini-games.
