Pokemon HeartGold / SoulSilver

If your following the continuing adventures of my sons current Pokemon obsession, he is currently trying to wrestle a set of rare original Pokemon cards which his Uncle collected in his youth, and dying with anticipation for the new Pokemon game HeartGold / SoulSilver to come out.

Although not a totally new game, HeartGold / SoulSilver are new improved versions of the original Pokemon Gold and Silver which came out on the GBA, made for the Nintendo DS generation of gamers.

I’m not going to go into intricate detail about all the differences between the new games and Gold and Silver, you have GameRadar and IGN to do that for you, I’m just a mum with a Pokemon loving son who’s trying to keep up. I do however know that one new component of the game is certainly going to appeal to Thomas, the Pokewalker.

The Pokewalker is a small pedometer type thing, that looks like a tiny Pokeball.

You transfer a Pokemon to your Pokewalker via infrared, and you then can carry your Pokemon around with you in your pocket.

As you walk the Pokemon will gain experience points to go up a level. The more steps you take, the more watts you earn, which you can use to find special items and buy Pokemon.

You can also play small games like looking for Pokemon with the Pokeradar, and then battle them in an attempt to capture them.

If you have friends with the game you can transfer Pokemon between your Pokewalkers, and also collect a special gift everyday when you connect them up.

The games and Pokeradar kind of look like the games on the Pokemon Cyberball electronic game. Simple but would keep my son amused for an hour on the go. He also loves carrying his Cyberball game everywhere with him in his pocket as it looks like a Pokeball, so the Pokewalker is right up his street.

If you get your copy of HeartGold / SoulSilver from Toys R Us you also get a free DVD of the Pokemon Chronicles Vol. 1, which will only add to my sons enjoyment.
