Handheld game with an infrared port for interacting with Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal!
It's called the Nintendo Pokemon Pikachu GS 2, AKA: Virtual Pocket Pikachu Pet game. They came out in Japan as a series of portable Pokémon digital pets featuring Pikachu. This product was intended as an exercise toy and mentioned by Guinness World Records as the most popular exercise toy of its time. The first release of the device was simply called "Pokémon Pikachu." A yellow unit resembling a Game Boy, it featured a black and white LCD screen used to display animations of Pikachu's activities. But this one is from the second release, Pokémon Pikachu 2 GS, it is in a clear and silver casing with a color display featuring even more animations! Both of the Pokémon Pikachu incarnations differ slightly from more traditional portable virtual pets in that Pikachu does not need to be fed, watered, or cleaned up after. So they are much easier than the Tamagotchi digipets. Instead, the Pokémon Pikachu unit can be strapped to a belt and used as a pedometer. With every step it counts, the Pokémon Pikachu credits its user with "watts," which are a sort of currency used to buy Pikachu presents. Twenty steps on the pedometer will reward the player with one watt. As the player grows closer to Pikachu, more activities become available. Pokémon Pikachu 2 GS features an infrared port for interacting with Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal via the Mystery Gift option, which uses the Game Boy Color's built-in infrared communication port. This mode allows players of the Game Boy titles to trade their Pokémon Pikachu's watts for items to use in the Game Boy game! And all the menus are in English!
