Subpar, at Best
on December 8, 2013
My primary criticisms of this guide are as follows:
1.) I'm not certain in what type of "pocket" one might carry a hardcover, 8.5"x6", 2 lbs. book, but it certainly doesn't fit in any of mine. In fact, the size of the book is a considerable disadvantage, as the small width of the pages make any maps nearly microscopic in detail; that doesn't even take into account the aesthetically displeasing sight it creates when aligned with my other Pokemon guides when placed on my bookshelf.
2.) The primary reason most people purchase Pokemon game guides is for the Pokedex, either Regional or National, and this guide comes with neither. Not only is there no Pokedex, there's no index indicating on which page in the guide the Pokemon can be found, making any attempts to complete Kalos' three Regional Pokedexes incredibly annoying, as you're flying blind.
3.) While the guide IS reasonably priced (considering its size and dearth of information), I posit that this guide is still overpriced. We ended up with a barebones walkthrough of the game. Were the standards set by previous Pokemon guides published by Prima followed, this guide might be worth the time or money. It's largely not.
