Back in the day, there were only 151 Pokémon, Ash, Misty and Brock were best pals and Team Rocket was a force to be reckoned with.  But the times change, Pokémon evolve and well… they also seem to multiply.  Now, thanks to Studio Bebop, Pokémon enthusiasts can access the stats to all 493 creatures in an instant with the Pokedex App 2.1.

Connected to Bulbapedia, Pokedex App 2.1 allows users to access all the information they could possibly need to know about their favorite Pokémon.  Pokedex App 2.1’s main menu provides links to browse Pokémon, access your recently viewed Pokémon and visit Studio Bebop’s web site.

By tapping on browse, users can then search through the entire list of Pokémon alphabetically by name, numerically, or by type (i.e. Bug, Electric, Fire).  Users can also type in the name of the specific Pokémon they are looking for.

Once you’ve picked a Pokémon, you are directed to a page that shows you a picture of the creature, as well as their type, species, ability, exp. at 100, EV yield, egg groups and egg cycles, as well as their evolved forms.  The tabs at the bottom allow users to view the Pokémon’s base stats, their strengths and weaknesses against other Pokémon types, and the various moves they can learn as they gain experience.

Ideal for children and children-at-heart, Pokedex App 2.1 is the comprehensive go-to guide for all the vital information Pokémon trainers need to become a successful Pokémon master!

Pokedex 2.1 requires iPhone OS 2.0 or later and is compatible with the iPhone and iPod Touch.

    Sadly Kevin, this isn’t something that we’re able to do. Not because we’re unwilling, we actually had an official app up in association with another developer who rebranded their app and released it for free, but because Nintendo came down like a ton of bricks on *all* iPhone apps related to Pokemon, including the Dex’s. The developer we were working with (and other developers we had waiting in the wings on other projects) all got C&D’s, so there wasn’t anything we could do.

    I’m not too familiar with iPhone/iTouch workings, but is it possible to view locally saved pages on the iPhone or do so with some other app? If so, Bulbapedia could make some pages of proper iPhone size/format and allow people one-time download (maybe through torrent) to view.
    If there is a way to view pages locally, then the only hitch is getting a way keep pages updated. Too bad there are no such things as ‘updatable’ torrents.

    Well it’s a good app…
    I bought it well and truly before I knew that they were stealing data from Bulbapedia.
    So sorry Bulbapedia I’m a massive fan and visit your website daily.
    I hope you guys win!

    Why doesn’t Bulbapedia just make their own app then? Use the lawsuit money to fund the development. This is obviously an amazing idea even if it is illegal.

  5. Joe, read Archaic’s most recent comment.
