This book was exactly what I was looking for. It has information on all the Pokemon that have been released since the first generation. It has their stats, where you can find them, moves list (level, TM/HM, Egg, etc), a little description of each one, as well as a small tip for each one. All the Pokemon from Black/White have AR markers for your 3DS which is cool (though it doesn't have it for the previous generations which I wish it had). You can flip the cover over to see a full map of the Unova Region (though there are no maps of the other regions which I wish it had). There are several different sections on all moves, abilities and items. It also provides how to max out the National Dex. This isn't a Strategy Guide on how to beat the game but that is good because I didn't want that. A great book and a great size that you can carry easily. If only they had an ebook version so that I can have this in my Kindle.

Just what I was looking for about 75% of information I needed, but I noticed a lot of typos, a few missing moves and abilities, and Cacturn (I think that's how its spelled) is missing its dark typing. Overall besides that great book.

Overall, this is a good Pokedex that you can access 24/7 and will keep you from needing to be near an internet connection to check Bulbapedia all the time. However, it has flaws. Though it is portable, this also means tiny printing. A minor thing to overlook. However, their format and visual displays for information is a bit odd.

Such as, they don't tell you much info about WHERE to catch or get Pokemon at, they don't offer much detail on their base stats, they don't tell you who the father Pokemon needs to be for egg moves, and they place page priority on the in-game Pokedex entries and "Tips and Tactics" over the more important information. I'd rather they spent more detail on the in-game locations and base stats than a giant box that tells you what the games Pokedex says and their own personal strategy for raising them. While these are appreciated, they don't need to take up more space on the page than the most important info. They also seem to be missing all Move Tutor moves in the guide, as well.

Overall, its a useful guide and tells you *most* of the info you need to know, but it doesn't at all replace Bulbapedia or the internet and Prima usually makes much better and more detailed guides than this one, which is supposedly made BY The Pokemon Company. I'd trust Prima to making book guides over these guys, and use the internet more if near a computer or capable smartphone. I will say though, its still easier to read and more user-friendly than the Serebii.net Pokedex.
