Pokemon Is Exercise

Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Japan, the games will be bundled with a peripheral called the Poké Walker, a pedometer that resembles a Poké Ball which can connect to the Nintendo DS game card via infrared signals (in a fashion similar to another Nintendo DS game Personal Trainer: Walking) and can "hold" a Pokémon. Walking with a Poké Walker holding a Pokémon will increase both its experience and closeness, as well as the player's "watts", an in-game currency that can be used to catch wild Pokémon and shop for items.
Oh My God....they just worked out how to make kids walk all freakin day. The more you walk the better your Pokemon is, RUN CHILDREN! RUNNN!!!!!

As long as they're not as clever as these kids and just attach the pedometers to their dogs...
