The official Pokédex app, an illustrated encyclopaedia of more than 640 Pokémon characters, is now available in Europe and the US for iPhone, iPad, iPad mini and iPod touch.

The Pokédex provides fans with easy access to information such as how to evolve a Pokémon, locations where specific Pokémon are found, and which types of attacks an individual Pokémon is weak against.

Users will be able to browse Pokémon either by name or by Pokédex number, move, Ability, or type. Once a particular Pokémon is chosen, a detailed and dynamic 360-degree image of the Pokémon appears with a full encyclopedia entry, including its name, height and weight, type, Ability, and moves it can learn.

Each Pokémon's entry includes the locations where the Pokémon can be found in Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, and Pokémon White 2.

The initial £1.49 purchase includes access to the Unova Pokédex (National Pokédex No. 494-647), with additional Pokédex packs priced £3.99 each - the complete set will cost you nearly £18.
