My brother lost his Pokewalker and got a new one individually to replace it. I looked up about replacements here on Bulbapedia and tried the Up+Select+R thing.

It gave the Pokemon back, but if you try to connect to the new one, it says it isn't registered. What do I do now?

At the Pokewalker connection screen, you must hold Down, X, and L on the DS. This is a necessary step so that you cannot clone Pokemon. After that, you should be able to connect a new Pokewalker.

Oh yeah...I misunderstood that, I guess. Thanks. – Ullallulloo Sep 11 '10 at 17:37
Where do you do that? – user12824 Sep 29 '11 at 21:01

If you still have HeartGold booklet, follow the instructions on page 35.
