The Pokéwalker of Fail is one of Chris's most recently-appearing relics.
A Pokéwalker is best described as a hybrid of a pedometer (unfortunately, not a pedo-meter) and a Tamagotchi that's Poké Ball-shaped and was originally bundled with the Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver games. Chris is using it not because he's interested in his health and wishes to monitor his exercise, but because you can place a Pokémon in the device and gain experience points for it, find items, or catch more Pokémon by walking. While the item is meant to encourage exercise among nerds, Chris sports not one but three in an attempt to triple his gains with 1/3rd of the effort. In an ironic way, this makes Chris even more lazy.
Chris, being the artistic fellow that he is, repainted his with Sonichu's colors in imitation of a Sonichu ball.
It made its début on 6 June 2010 and later appears with him in public during the events of the Fridays After Five Concert that Chris attended on 18 June. Another picture of Chris on 9 July shows that he owns at least two regularly-colored Pokéwalkers. Normally, one Pokéwalker is included with HeartGold and SoulSilver, so either he bought an extra walker off the website or bought an extra copy of either HG or SS. Most likely is the second option, as you can't take more than one pokemon from the same game out on the Pokéwalker at a time.
