The Pokégear is a general purpose tool used by Pokémon Trainers in the Johto region. It is a key item featured in Pokémon Gold and Silver Versions and Pokémon Crystal Version as well as their Nintendo DS remakes Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions.
The Pokégear acts as a combination of a wristwatch and cell phone, although it can gain other features, such as a radio, by obtaining certain expansion cards in the games. In the Generation II games and the remakes, the player character receives a Pokégear around the start of their adventure. The cell phone function is used to receive calls from characters, such as Professor Elm, or certain Pokémon Trainers that the player has met along the way. In Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire Versions, the Pokégear was replaced with the Pokénav.
In the Pokémon anime, the Pokégear appears in a three-part episode of Pokémon Chronicles, titled The Legend of Thunder, as well as in Pokémon 3: The Movie. It is also used by Misty in an episode of Pokémon: Advanced Battle.
The toy manufacturer TOMY was licensed by The Pokémon Company to create a toy Pokégear, which included a radio, a watch, and other Pokémon related features. It was sold through the Japanese Pokémon Centers and their websites only.
