How to turn your iPhone into a Pokédex

How to turn your iPhone into a Pokédex

Pokemon Pokedex iPhone Siri WolframMike Wehner of TUAW writes:

The massive information engine Wolfram Alpha just added a whopping 649 Pokémon to its database. For fans of the games, that fact is pretty cool all on its own, but if you happen to own an iPhone or an iPad with Siri, it’s even more awesome. You see, thanks to Siri’s ability to search Wolfram Alpha for information, your iDevice is now as close to a real-life Pokédex as you’ll probably ever have.

Just ask Siri to Wolfram Search for Pikachu, Charmander, Diglet or other Pokémon favorites and, voila, a free Pokédex!

Pokedex for iOS Released in the United States

Nintendo had not up to this point released any apps within the App Store, but their aversion to Apple’s platform has seemingly loosened. “The Pokémon Company,” which is the subsidiary of Nintendo in charge of marketing and licensing the Pokémon franchise, has released the official Pokédex app for iPhone and iPad.

You may know that the app was released last month in Japan, but it appears to have made its way across the Pacific. The app features everything you would find in the in-game Pokédex, including where Pokémon are located, their evolutions, attributes, abilities and more.

Sadly, with its $1.99 price tag, the Pokédex app doesn’t come with all 647 Pokémon. The app itself comes with only the Unova Pokémon (494-647) and all other regions are in-app purchases at a hefty $5.99 a piece. I actually didn’t realize this before purchasing the app, and I can assure you I will not be buying any of the other Pokémon.

As I said, the app is available now for $1.99 and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Just keep in mind that if you want all five generations of Pokémon, it’s going to end up costing you almost $26.

Application Review: Little Masters

It was regarded to be the Pokémon clone. It was said that Nintendo would have it taken down quickly after release. It was said… It was said. At first glance, the game does seem to take many roots from our beloved Pokémon that have become overpopulated (remember the original 150?). Other than the battle system and artistry though, they share nothing in common.   (more…)
