The buttons on the GS2 are layed out as follows:
A up A O | |left<- -> right - - O B | | status settings \_____V down_____________________________/
The card game consists of pikachu turning over a card on the left side. 5 watts are automatically deducted. The player decides if he thinks the card on the right side will be higher or lower than the card on the left, and indicates his decision with the up or down.
If the second card matches what the person predicted (or is equal to the first card), then the person wins and needs to decide whether to take the watts won up to that point (B, or get), or to use the card on the right for the next round and get a bonus (A, or next).
The bonus points add up incrementally if the A button is pressed. They are as follows: 8, 12, 17, 25, 40, 55, 77, 100, 130, 170, 250, 380, 555, and 777. At 777, the game forces a get to take the watts.
My rule for winning lots of watts is to do a next (A button) if the card on the right is 2, 3, 4, Q, K, or A. (Especially for 2 and A, as you are guaranteed to get the next one right), and a get (B button) if the card on the right is a 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, or J. If I am really up with the bonus points, I won't press next if the card on the right is 5 or J. I almost never press next (A) if the card is a 6 or 10, and I never press next for 7, 8, or 9 (unless I'm wreckless, or feeling lucky).
Here is a list of notes that you can enter into the Pokémon Pikachu to get some nifty songs. If the song has the (round) label, then many Pikachus can be played at different times.
