For those of you out there wondering how to clear the PokéWalker (i.e. you wiped your HeartGold/SoulSilver save game), I finally looked in the SoulSilver manual and found the answer on page 51. From the main menu, choose the third option, PokéWalker. On the menu to synchronize the PokéWalker, press the Down, X, and L buttons at the same time. It will then warn that the save data will be erased and cannot be undone. Select the top option (hai) and press and hold the center button on the PokéWalker while highlighting the sync option. Within one second, the device will be reset to its initial state. Too bad I didn't read this part of the main manual until after I had already finished translating half of the PokéWalker manual (which warned not to use gasoline or benzine on it >_<).
Hmm, any tips on the Pokeradar? (I'm not brave enough to try to figure out the instruction booklet, the game's script is more than enough) My last seven attempts to catch a Pikachu failed miserably. >_< Couldn't even get it to select the patch of grass I wanted half the time. Going to go walk the dog (and my Pidgey) in a bit, so hopefully I can have another go when I get back.
