Pokédex for iOS Available In U.S. And Europe

The Pokémon Company have launched their Pokédex for iOS application in North America and Europe, the company announced today. The app costs $1.99 in the U.S. and £1.49 in the U.K. Previously, it was only available in Japan.

 

As previously reported, Pokédex for iOS is a conversion of Pokédex 3D Pro for the Nintendo 3DS eShop, sans the stereoscopic 3D support and certain other features.

 

The base app lets you view information on the Unova Region Pokémon from Pokémon Black/White. The respective Pokédexes for other Pokémon regions can be purchased for additional money. Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh Pokédexes are all available for $5.99/£3.99 each.

 

Just like the Nintendo 3DS version, Pokédex for iOS supports six different languages—English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Japanese. You can search for Pokémon by name, and also by combinations of type, Egg Group, Ability, type matchup, and learnable moves.

    I feel kind of uncomfortable seeing an officially licensed Nintendo iOS app.

      Technically it’s pokemon company doing this not Nintendo. So it’s fine.

      • miju

        I am aware of that. But Pokemon is still generally a Nintendo exclusive most of the time…

        • Elvick

          It is.

          Apps like this are smart business. Nintendo would be foolish to ignore that. There are tons of fan-made apps that people make that people would pay for.

          Why not cash in yourself?

    Thats pretty pricey. Id rather get a hard cover full color edition pokedex with every single entry for every game for that price. Perhaps we should pray that PKMN doesnt leave nintendo handhelds as if they would start charging for PKMN Id have to leave the franchise.

    Honestly this just tells me two things. One is to get the eshop version if you want all the pokemon. Two if you just want a particular region just get the iphone version. (I’ll be picking up the eshop version)

    Looks like a pokedex iPhone cover would do wonders with this!

  • Renaldi Saputra

    It would be fine if it’s free.. ahh cmon it’s just a pokedex in i-phone, why we have to pay.. it’s not a game..

  • Elvick

    They should have made the app free. Giving you the starters from each generation with it, so you could see what it’s like. Then had each generation be $0.99.

    People would be more willing to eat it up then.

    I know I would have been down with it for that. Having the base app be paid, AND having the rest of the generations cost more than the app (and thus 5th gen) is just not for me. Especially when I could just get the 3DS app, which costs less in total (and is still too much for me).

    More realistically, they should have at least did the free app w/ starters, and then had each generation be the same price after that, regardless of the price for it.

    Official Pokédexes have always been shit.
