Pokémon Company Launches Official Pokédex App For iPhone and iPad!

Today, The Pokémon Company announced that more than 640 Pocket Monsters have landed on iOS in the official Pokédex app, an illustrated encyclopedia that provides fans with a new way to access comprehensive Pokémon data.

The app includes a wide range of data for each and every Pokémon, giving fans an easy way to access information such as how to evolve a Pokémon, locations where specific Pokémon are found, and which types of attacks an individual Pokémon is weak against. It will also tell you what moves a particular Pokémon can learn and lets you quickly browse Pokémon either by name or by Pokédex number, move, ability, or type. Each Pokémon listing contains a detailed and dynamic 360-degree image of the Pokémon along with a full encyclopedia entry, including its name, height and weight.

The app costs $1.99 to download, but the entry fee only earns you a portion of the full Pokédex. The app is split up by region, with Unova (Pokédex Black and White 1-2) being the focal point off that bat. If you want access to the information on Pokémon native to other regions (games) – Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh – you'll have to cough up a surprising $5.99 for each, bringing your total Pokédex investment up to $25.95.

If the price tag doesn't offend you too much, head over to the App Store and start the download.
