The guide to the Kanto Region is useful, following in the same pattern as the Johto guide already released and the Sinnoh guide released for Platinum. However, the real use for this book is the complete Pokedex.
The 'Dex has every pokemon in it, with the useful charts we've all been waiting for. Using this guide you can easily see the full set of moves a pokemmon can learn, from levels gained, TMs, egg moves, and moves taught by the Move Maniac or learned through the Battle Frontier. This is all on top of the basics you would expect from a Pokedex, being a list of abilities, egg groups, stats, pokedex entries, and even Pokeathlon perfromance. Also listed are ways to obtain each pokemon in all five of the fourth generation games.
Overall a very useful guide to some of the best games to hit the Nintendo DS.

Pokemon games have generally been released a few every generation. The original games (Red, Blue, and Yellow) for the GameBoy are considered the 1st Generation games; the sequels built for the GB Color(Silver, Gold, and Crystal) are considered 2nd Gen, etc. That makes the DS gen games the 4th Gen PKMN games, and this PokeDex/Guide is built with that in mind. New and/or revised move-sets, Pokemon types, evolutions, natures, etc. are detailed and described as they are in the newer 4th Gen games, that is Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, PLatinum, and the new SoulSilver and HeartGold. In other words, those looking for a complete PokeDex for any other game should look elsewhere. Those interested in the 4th Gen games are in for a real treat.

The ultra large (500+ pages) book does exactly what its title says; its a full Kanto guide and a full PokeDex, and it does both, for the most part, extremely well.

The Kanto guide contains full and detailed maps (as are seen in-game), tips, and a complete walkthrough. The walkthrough doesn't start just as you enter the Kanto region, however, it assumes you've already beaten the Elite Four and have gained admission to the Hall of Fame. the guide features things like what Pokemon are found in what location, where items are, and dungeon "connections" (doorway "A" leads to this part of the map). The Battle Frontier, tips for the PokeWalker, the Saffari Zone, and a beefy section that details new battle strategies and PKMN teams all help to make this guide stand out from a simple bare-bones walkthropugh. A nice feature i found was a complete list of what event happens at what date, given that SoulSilver/HeartGold rely heavily on a real time clock, this feature is unbelievably important.

I'll agree with Veotho on essentially every point, I'd add that the Pokewalker information is also extremely useful, I'm a little disappointed that there isn't information on the Yellow Road special course that you get for going online with the game, because there are secret special Pikachu's to be had if you know the secrets readily available online. Other than that, it's a bargain and at Amazon prices they are way more reasonable than you'll likley find anyplace else.

WHY I BOUGHT POKÉMON ::
I got a DS Lite and Pokémon for myself and my kids for the soul purpose of getting something for rainy days and travels that I can do with my kids. It has gone better then I even thought. As silly as it may sound Pokémon has become something fun for my kids and I to talk about and trade and plan together. It creates yet another point of contact for

WHY THIS GUIDE IS BETTER THAN THE INTERNET FOR YOUNG READERS ::
I play a number of video games and have found that the best resources are not strategy books, but the internet. But this book and the other strategy guides are excellent for my kids. They will sit on the couch together and read together and discuss strategies and greet me at the door when I come home to tell me something new that they learned about a particular pokémon.

I highly recommend this strategy guide. It has EVERYTHING a person needs to go deeper into the game.

I wanted a full pokedex, and this guide has it, besides having the walkthrough for the Kanto part of the HeartGold/SoulSilver journey. It was much cheaper here than at any store. :)

I love pokemans, and when I first saw this I knew I needed to get it. It's got everything you could possibly know about jhoto and kanto pokeman.

An extremely comprehensive Pokedex, guide and manual. Full-color illustrated pages chalk full of art and information, including tips and tricks, a glossary of Pokemon moves, HM's, items etc. a walkthrough to the second part of Soulsilver & Heartgold versions and much, much more. The layout is a bit difficult to understand at first; I wouldn't recommend for children below their teen years for this very reason. Pokedex is extremely comprehensive and vast, providing one with a slew of information on every Pokemon present in the game and beyond.
