The latest Pokemon remakes bring more to the series than just a bunch of new Pokemon and updated visuals. Pokemon Company confirmed today something that was revealed on yesterday's episode of Pokemon Sunday: Heart Gold and Soul Silver will add an all new element to the franchise: the PokeWalker.
PokeWalker is a special walking meter that will be bundled with the two remakes. Different from the meter that Nintendo included with its Power Walker health software, the PokeWalker meter looks like a Pokeball and ties in closely with the two remakes.
The PokeWalker device interfaces with your DS via infrared. You can transfer over a single Pokemon, who then becomes visible on the device's screen.
