Pokédex is expanding its boundaries. A little less than a month after launching in only the Japanese App Store, the official Pokémon encyclopedia is now available in North America and Europe.
Fans of the Nintendo game series can use the Pokédex to find out anything and everything about the creatures, including strengths, weaknesses, and where exactly the Pokémon can be found. The app features support for Retina displays and allows users to make 3-D Pokémon move around in real time.
Pokédex is a universal app for both the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. It can be downloaded in the App Store now for $1.99. Users must have iOS 6 installed for the app to function.
The app comes with data for Unova region Pokémon (No. 494-647) that are featured in the Pokèmon Black Version 2 and Pokèmon White Version 2 games.
The other four regions of Pokédexes can be unlocked with in-app purchases of $5.99 each.
So the entire app is a little less than $26. No thanks. I’ll be holding onto my money until Mario and friends make an entrance to the App Store – which will probably be never. But hey, at least there’s an actual Pokèmon app that isn’t a scam.
