In the game Pikachu holds up two cards, and show the player one card. The player must then guess if the other card will be higher or lower (with aces high). If the player wins they can get 10 Watts or keep playing "double or nothing", where for each win their prize is doubled, but if they lose they don't get any watts.

Clock & Alarm

The Pokémon Pikachu 2 GS has a clock system that keeps track of the time, how many steps the player has taken, how long the player has used it, and also how many steps they have taken for each of the last 7 days.

It also has an alarm system where the player can set what time they want the alarm to go off at, and they can also set what they want the alarm to sound like. They can use a pre-programed sound or they can create their own using the notes A - F, both major and minor, which can be up to 64 notes long.
