Has anyone seen the new Pokewalker that is included with Heartgold/Soulsilver versions? It's graphics look pretty good. I wonder if it is based on Pokemon Mini hardware... What do you guys think?

Here you can find a teardown of the unit: ... r-teardown

We just discussed this on IRC yesterday. It's not based on Pokemon Mini hardware, but it's some proprietary hardware. Most likely it's not hack-able (i guess it's a microcontroller with internal ROM). Probably the only thing that could be hacked is the display. One could analyze the bus and use it for own projects.

Thanks for the info! Too bad it isn't PM hardware.

All I know is, those little buggers are DURABLE. I accidentally washed mine when I forgot it was in my pocket and after leaving it to dry overnight, it still worked like a charm! :lol:
