Who honestly never thought about bringing more if Pokémon into the real world? Well, Nintendo is moving one step closer to that with a Pokédex app, for iOS platforms. Appropriately, it's titled Pokédex for iOS.
The Pokédex's database currently contains over 640 of these monsters, ranging from cute to downright "what the hell were they thinking." If you were hoping for a free download, we're sorry to inform you that the app does cost $2 to grab. Well, $1.99 USD to be exact, if that's any better.
The app will grant "immediate access" (As opposed to delayed?) to the Unova Pokédex data, covering entries 494 through 647. The way the app works is you can browse and bring up a Pokémon, then check out all its stats and other information. The display lets users rotate the creature a full 360 degrees, so that might be kind of fun to mess around for a few minutes. Of course, every entry also shows where the Pokémon can be captured in-game.
If you're wondering about the other regions, those will need to be purchased separately for a higher price. The entire Pokédex needs to be assembled region by region, with the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh Pokédex regional data costing another $5.99 USD each. Ouch.
