Being a huge fan of Pokémon, and a huge fan of one of the new starter Pokémon, Chespin, I really wanted to pick up this book, even if just for the sake of having it.

So, this is a book published by Scholastic, which are very good when it comes to the Pokémon books. I feel that the quality and depth have gone downhill since the beginning, but these books are meant for younger kids to enjoy, and they're incredibly easy to read. The pictures are just plain stock art, which is nice the first time seeing it, but it can get really repetitive.

So being a handbook to the Kalos region, how well does is it when it comes to knowledge? Well, you're not becoming a Pokémon master just by looking through this. For the most part, the book is pretty accurate, and matches up well to the games. I haven't noticed any height, weight, or move errors, and the book provides handy pronunciations for almost all of the Kalos Pokémon. The most noticeable error is that the book states Professor Sycamore's lab (The local Pokémon professor) is in Vaniville Town, when it is actually in Lumiose City. It also doesn't clarify that he doesn't give you a Kalos Starter Pokémon.

The description for each Pokémon is based somewhat on in-game text, but presents it in a more kid-friendly style. Take Chespin's Poké Dex entry as an example:

In Pokémon X: The quills on its head are usually soft. When it flexes them, the points become so hard and sharp that they can pierce rock.
In this book: When Chespin flexes its soft quills, they become tough spikes with sharp, piercing points. It relies on its nutlike shell for protection in battle.

I can't comment on how relevent this book is to a "true" Pokemon fan, being that I purchased this for my son and he mostly likes looking at the "funny monsters" and laughing at me trying to pronounce some of the names. However, it is well laid-out and from what I gather this is an addition to the "original" Pokemon and an introduction to some new types of Pokemon. If you're a parent or someone looking for a gift for a Pokemon fan, I'd recommend this. It's probably one of the easier Pokemon books to read in that it gives you phonetical pronunciations and you can keep it short and simple for little ones with just names or read more in depth for older kids or somewhere in between like we do, and make a game out of recognizing the Pokemon types (=new words that can be read!).

Bought this for myself since I've been a Pokémon fan since the first came out and this book is very basic to get started on your journey (if you were playing Pokémon X/Y) Not much details but very basic and it comes a collector's poster featuring the three Kalos' starter Pokémon! (My favorite starter is Foakie). Perfect for all ages (doesn't matter young or old) and I still keeping this as my Pokémon collection :)

Perfect book for our pokemon loving 3.5 year old. She has the essential handbook as well but it doesn't include the x&y(Kalos) Pokemon. She loves watching the show/movies and looking up the pokemon she sees or just looking at her favorite:). Now she has them all. Highly recommended!!!! Hopefully they'll release a new book with all 700+ pokemon!

this is the worst pokemon book I have ever read! It doesn't give any information about the evolved pokemon. It is just waste of money. It only gives information about random pokemon.

My son has only seen a couple of episodes of XY but still wanted to learn more about Froakie so this was a great purchase. It's almost like he's using the book to do research. It's really cute.
