Absolutely the best of the best. This book is amazing. Information on not only the first 150, but also includes Mew and Togepi. You wouldn't find any other handbook with THAT info. Speaking of which, the handbook had also told me Mew's Pokemon that he had the advantages and disadvantages on. It definitely helped me on beating the Elite Four after so much trouble that I had. It's a perfect handbook for when you're looking for Pokemon that you would use to battle, looking at stats for the monsters, or just wanting to read it for NAR (No apparent reason), it's the perfect book for any kind of trainer. Doesn't matter. And it also comes with a special pull-out poster which would be nice to have too. The best and MUCH better than the first one. Beat it by a mile or two.

This OFFICIAL Pokemon Handbook is a great reference guide to the wonderful world of "pocket monsters". It not only covers all the Pokemon including MEW and TOGEPI but also comes with a full color poster of the creatures too !! The author does a fine job of describing the characters, techniques and the essentials to raising a happy Pokemon. Fans of the Pokemon television show will appreciate the in depth look at the Pokemon Trainers like Ash/Brock, a complete listing of all eight Gym Leaders and their Pokemon not to mention how one gears up to join the Pokemon League. In short if you need to find out essential facts about each and every Pokemon available today or you're vaguely curious what a POKEMON is look no further because this is the resource manual to buy if you "gotta catch 'em all !".

I got this book for my oldest son and he loves it. Each of the first 150 Pokemon are shown and described, in easy to understand language. It was so simple even *I* understood it!
My son is 9 and he thought this book was perfect for what he wanted. His younger brothers (ages 5 and 2) also liked it, and my 2 year old can now name at least 75 Pokemon by sight as a result!
I think it's a good, fun tool for the kids in that it develops their memory. Not only does it teach them the names of the Pokemon, but also their type and other information about them. I would recommend this book to any Pokemon enthusiast.

This book is a reference guide to all 152 Pokémon sighted so far. It gives you number, name, type, height, weight, and gives you information and facts about the Pokémon, such as Bulbasaur have a "family reunion" in the spring where they all evolve into Ivysaur. In my opinion, the best feature is the pronunciation guide, it helps settle conflicts on how to say the names of the Pokémon. My only complaint is that they didn't include Mew and Togepi in the first edition of the Pokémon handbook. Other than that, an excellent book.

My son bought this book during his school book fair this Fall, and by the second day he owned it, the book looked as though it was 10 years old from use. He couldn't put it down. He read it from cover to cover, and then used it to look up information on his favorite Pokemon. He continues to use it months after the purchase. If you have a child who loves Pokemon, but isn't too into reading, try this book, it will foster the love of reading by giving them something they love to read about. I would also recommend the Pokemon chapter books as well.

Format: Paperback
I recommend this handbook to anyone who likes poke`mon because it has 144 pages of the 151 poke`mon characters including mew. When I first got it I read it all in one day because it was so cool,But I still read it every day since I got it. If you have gameboy with a poke`mon game then this book is for you because it tells about:what element it is and what attacks it does, what its good and bad against and what leavel it Evolves at.
