  • How do I adjust the color? My screen is dark/difficult to see. I can hear it, but can't see it.

    1. Adjust the color setting in the Options Menu. To access the Option Screen press the START Button. Use Up/Down on the Control Pad to indicate an option, then press the A Button to select it.

      • Sound: Toggles game sounds on and off
      • Clock: Allows you to set the Time, and to set the Alarm.
      • Color: Changes the color level. Slide the bar Left/Right to adjust. Middle is the default.

    2. Try replacing the battery (battery type: CR2032).

    If these steps do not help you, your system may need to be replaced.

  • How do I get Sound on my Pokémon Pikachu 2 GS?

    Make sure the "sound" setting in the Options is "on".

  • How do I make sure Pikachu is gaining Watts?

    Make sure that Pikachu is securely placed in a vertical position on a part of your clothing that moves when you walk (such as a belt, waistband, or shoe). If he is sideways, the walking meter doesn't register steps. In addition, the pedometer stops registering after you've reached 999,999 steps. This can be corrected by resetting Pokémon Pikachu 2 GS.

    If these steps do not help you, your system may need to be replaced.
