I bought SoulSilver just when it came out here in Europe in 26th of March and used my Walker couple of days until there came this tiny teeny accident...
I was helping dad cleaning his house for Easter and I was sweeping the floors with mop and bucket when the Walker dropped off the waistline of my boxer briefs and ended up in the cleaning bucket, into water with detergent.
So, the Walker would have been OK if I had realized rightaway it's missing and picked it up, but I was so concentrated in mopping (listening japanese pop with MP3 player
) that I didn't realize my PWalker is missing until I was emptying the bucket the next time and there it was... Eh?
So my Walker "died" after 2 days of usage and I've been waiting a spare one from Nintendo of Finland until end of March, but they haven't got spare part ones from N.o.Europe until now.
I emailed them yesterday and should be getting new PokéWalker in next week. Hooray, finally I can start my personal "Walk to fit with your Poké" project
When my original Walker died, I didn't lose much. There was only Sunkern that had appeared into empty walker from the course I was strolling with the Walker, there was no DS-caught monster in it.
Btw, Nintendo of Finland has pretty high price for spare PokéWalker.
In USA Nintendo oof America official online store sells spare PWalker with price $17 (about €14), but what does N.o.Finland?
Spare PokéWalker costs almost €25 here which is nearly US$30!
You can call that legal robbery!
