The Pokemon Company has announced that it’s bringing the Pokédex to iOS devices in Japan. The full, official Pokédex will contain all the 3D character models and animations available in the 3DS eShop’s Pokédex 3D Pro. The application is coming to Japan on November 16th, and will be available for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. There’s no word on a Western release at present.



  1. It’s not like they released a game. It’s just a Pokedex. People can use it while playing their DS, since the DS and 3DS have limited multi-tasking.

    Makes sense. A profitable compromise that maintains control over the IP.


  2. Please it is not a game. There have been pc stuff and other ios stuff. The pokemon company are just doing what they do best merchandising. thats there job toys, arcade name it


    • The 3DS has all pokemon when you buy it. I read on serebii that the iOS version only has the Unova pokemon the other generations have to be bought separately :T but for convenience I would get the iOS version since its difficult to use my 3DS version while playing the game. I would have to save and turn off the game to use the app and that just sucks.


      • by the time pokemon gets a 3ds game, they might have an update that allows for two applications to be open at once, so that you wouldnt have to save and turn off every time. but thats just a maybe, and iOS would still be more convenient.


  3. that’s surprising. i never would have thought an official one would ever come to iOS. but it’ll probably be quite nice. i’ve had an unofficial pokedex app for a while, but it ended up getting removed from the app store for legal reasons. i’ll probably end up getting this new one, if there is a western release. or hopefully this will cause pokedex 3d pro to have a price drop, because $15 is just ridiculous.
