Yes it’s true! Well, not a game but a complete working Pokédex app for iPhone, iPad and iPod. They said it would never happen, Nintendo having their own handheld devices of course, but with most kids these days having access to one of these Apple pieces of kit, the pressure to create something Pokémon and official has obviously got too great! So at last we have confirmation of the Pokédex app from Nintendo!
It’s only out in Japan so far, going on sale on 16 November, but it will surely work its way around the globe as this is one really useful app! You only get the Unova Pokémon to start with, but you can buy packs of extra Pokémon for 500 Yen each. Collecting all of the Pokémon will cost gamers a total of 2170 Yen, which is around £16. This is essentially the same tech that is in the Pokédex 3D Pro app for 3DS. You can search Pokémon in the same way, bringing up all of their essential stats for improving your battles in the actual Pokémon games on your DS.
