Pokéwalker Research & Discussion Thread

Night Sky's Edge is unlocked when you transfer a certain Jirachi to your HG/SS game. Everything from Refreshing Field to Quiet Cave is unlocked through saving Watts, while Beyond the Sea is unlocked once you've done an international trade over the GTS.

Winner's Path is available now over Wifi (at least in most areas). Rally, Sightseeing and Amity Meadow are unlocked by events that haven't yet been announced.

kool thankx for the help
 
Huh, so winners path is now available? How long is it available for? I live on campus and there's no wifi compatible with my ds, but I only have about a week left of school and when I get home I'll have wifi again.

I download 'Winner's Path' yesterday and so far I manage to catch myself a Magikarp, Duskull, and a few Horseas. Working my way up into catching at least of of each kind. By the looks of the table, Munchlax will be difficult to find.

I rather not put too much effort in finding/catching a Munchlax. I'm aiming to unlock every course I can before I start wasting watts. 'Yellow Forest' took a lot out of me and I don't want the same thing happening to me again. So I'll give the 'Winner's Path' route a week.

I also unlocked 'Beyond the Sea' course just recently. This will be my next stroll once I'm done with 'Winner's Path'.

I tried the time adjustment thing to get the beastly ivs and brave nature. I got a beldum with brave nature but not the good ivs. I did it at 2:13:58, is it possible i should do it at :59?

I am confirming the time adjustment works. It worked at 2:13:59 I got a beldum with the awesome stats and brave nature.

how do you unlock the beyond the sea course, I did and international trade and I still have not received it, do you have to talk to someone in the gts building?

It took me around 2 or 3 full days to get it. I just had to go out on a route, and when I came back with some watts it unlocked that as well as the next course I had unlocked, so maybe you need to unlock the next course to get it? I doubt it but maybe. Just give it some time, I just got it 2 hours ago and I traded twice on the GTS once 3 days ago once 2 days ago.

You know you need certain amount of steps to unlock certain pokemon is that in a day or is it how many steps you have done on that route? Eg if I did 12000 steps one day then the next day would be able to get pokemon which are 8000 steps even if I haven't done any steps that day?

So, first of all: Huray for my first post.
Now to get OT, I've collected over 5000 Watts for Hoen Field, normally i would unlock in but it isn't being unlocked yet.... anyone has the same problem?

Just posting to help those of you looking for decently IVd Pokes...Especially the new brood that comes fron The Winner's Path..........

1) just catch any ONE poke (lax, zor, gross, noir) on the walker
2) Set your DS Date to : 2031-10-25
3) Set your DS time to : 02:13:00
4) Wait on the first DS screen and watch the clock
5) start your game at either 02:13:58 or 02:13:59 :)59 for me)
6) go to the pokewalker section and take the pokemon out
it should be brave, 29/30/30/x/30/1


Do this EXACTLY as it states above, and you will get the IVs stated. This will work on ANY PokeWalker course, but I stated it for The Winner's Path, just because everything except Horsea on the PokeWalker route can have Brave as a competitive nature for battling...Especially if you like Trick Room teams, and ESPECIALLY if you want the really good IV stats for DestructoLax (Munchlax).

Remember though...

1) After you reset the date and time on your DS, it will shut off. Turn it right back on, and wait for it to hit 2:13:58.
2) Also remember, only catch ONE Poke...if you catch any more, the above stated trick doesn't work.
3) I did ths already with Beldum, Munchlax, Duskull, Magikarp, and Bronzor on The Winner's Path course. It WILL work for all of them if done correctly.

Could someone explain this please or post a video of it?
I don't really understand what the "first DS screen" is.

Alright, quick question. I've noticed this twice. I've gotten a few thousand steps and every once in a while, it the counter reverts back to 0. Is there a button command that resets the counter? Or is it just some glitch? Thanks!

There's no button combination that you could have pressed to reset the timer. The steps reset at midnight everyday - is your DS clock accurate (or are you running around and checking your DS at midnight)? Otherwise it's a glitch.

You need to have the ds setup first of all to not start the game when you turn it on. so when you turn on your ds it starts at the options select a game screen. wait there and watch the clock until it gets to either :58 or :59 and start the game exactly then.

It is still unknown for a Walker to give out legitimate shines. It's been months now and not a single person as yet to encounter one. So it's more likely that the walker cannot give out shines.

how do you unlock the beyond the sea course, I did and international trade and I still have not received it, do you have to talk to someone in the gts building?

Both Beyond the Sea and Hoenn Field are needing a National Dex. If you have it already, send a Pokemon to the Walker and take it back out. Should fix the problem.
 
The pokewalker cannot give out shinys. I'm the guy that created that list of what to do to RNG your pokewalker to give Brave 29/30/30/x/30/1 pokes. I got that info from reading some research done by wichu over on smogon. He and wild eep confirmed you cannot get shinys from the walker. If it would come up shiny, the game would go back and re-do the RNG calls just to make it not shiny. sorry

and I'll post some more easy lists of how to get great IV pokes from the walker later on if i find time.

Just found one that gives you high IV timid HP I 68 pokes. ;)

^Really? Congratz.

I'm still working on mine. I've unlocked 'Scary Cave' course just yesterday. That puts me to 17 courses total and 7 more courses to go.

But really, unlocking further courses is getting harder and harder each new course I get to. The last course being 'Quiet Cave' which is a whooping 100,000 Watts. -.-'

Eh, I still have a long way to go...
