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.
