“I want to be the very best, like no one ever was. To catch them is my real test, to train them is my cause!”
If you recognize that, congratulations! You’re a Pokéfan! While others may call us geeks, nerds, or even worse, we know better. Pokémon is not merely a childhood preoccupation. With proper attention and training, it can easily turn into a lifelong obsession, especially if you like statistics.
The uninitiated may not realize this, but Pokémon fans are usually hardcore stats fiends, because the world of Pokémon is HUGE. There are almost 500 different kinds of Pokémon, each with their own distinct characteristics, strengths, and weaknesses. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the Pokédex, an exhaustive Pokémon information resource, is an essential tool in the fictional Pokéverse. Those of you who have played the video games know that the in-game version isn’t nearly as cool or easy to use as it should be, so lucky for us, AAA Pokedex is about as close to a “real” Pokédex as you can imagine.
AAA Pokedex has just about all the Pokémon information you could want in an easy to use format, everything from general stats to evolution data and game locations. The interface is clean, intuitive, and way faster to use than the DS versions. The search function, in particular, is quite nice, as it will bring up a browsable list of names from partial data, so you can just type in “gy” and it will automatically find “Gyarados”. You can also browse by element type, egg groups, and abilities if you’re trying to fill a particular gap in your team or collection.
In general, I was extremely impressed by how well AAA Pokedex performed. While not quite as exhaustive as online resources like serebii.net or Bulbapedia, AAA Pokedex supplies a vast amount of information on the go, in an easy to use format. If you’re even somewhat serious about Pokémon, this is ideal whether you’re out at tournaments or just playing pick-up games with friends and weighing the pros and cons of a trade.
The only data that I really found lacking was on multiple forms, for Pokémon like Burmy or Gastrodon, but these are fairly unusual occurrences, so I certainly don’t consider it a major strike.
Speaking as one fan to another, this is the closest you’ll come to a real Pokédex, so if you’re wondering if its worth it, rest assured. Easy on the eyes, a breeze to use, and with enough encyclopedic heft for the most dedicated collector, AAA Pokedex is a great buy for any Pokémon fan.
