However I love a little boy who loves Pokemon. Not only does he love Pokemon he loves to share this with EVERYONE he can. This book is a life saver. Not only does it keep him entertained for hours it's set up in a way that makes it easy enough for us non-experts to keep up. He has gushed over this book time and time again to daddy, mommy, big sister, and he even loves to sit and show it to baby brother!
Added bonus if your 5 year old is fighting doing anything with his alphabet he will gladly hunt for any letter you ask if it means you will read about that Pokemon.
The guide is fairly up to date, and includes Sun and Moon (Alola) pokemon such as Lunala or Lycanroc. This makes the book really thick, as the 800+ pokemon take almost 500 pages! Each of them has a very good level of detail, including their region, evolutions, size/weight and some interesting facts. We could not be happier with this guide... or maybe we could, if it included Zeraora! (This mythical pokemon was introduced on April 2018, probably after the guide was printed, and it is the only missing one we have found).
Overall, a extremely recommended guide for all the pokemon-lover kids out there!
This book is an almanac of facts about Pokemon as represented on the Pokemon trading cards. Its is not about video games or other Pokemon related gear. This is a comprehensive guide to all the characters. It starts with a few pages on the different categories=s and types of Pokemon and then each of the 800 characters has a 1/2 to full page on their description in detail including height and weight, phonetic pronunciation of their names, and their possible movement and evolution into advanced staged characters.
On the 800 descriptions, you enter a world of these amazing characters, some gentle and other evil and many man hour to create this incredible alternate universe if you will. You will learn about the much desired and powerful Legendary and Mythical Pokemon and their strengths and weakness, what energizes them and their trainer assist cards as you, the reader are the actual Pokemon trainer. Get descriptions and info-did you know that cute little Pikachu is a mouse Pokemon of the electric type from All and other regions and I am paraphrasing a quote from the book s(he) "naturally stores electricity it's body and needs to discharge it regularly to maintain good health"*
You can take it as deep as you want to go.
And you thought Pokemon was a kids only game. Lot's of strategy in this make believe word to get you ready to play, trade or perhaps enter a tournament.
I have looked a few different books on this subject at a hobby shop in my local mall and this one is very well formatted and easy to use no matter what level you may be at and if you know how to read. Literally a 6 year old has spent hours with it. Me too!

As a pretty new player to Pokemon games, I wanted a book showing the evolutions of them.
This is a perfect referennce book ...
Runs through A-Z, rather than by game.
Typically a half page on each Pokemon - full page for some.
It's a nice book to have a browse through.
Thwre's a small evolutinary illustration for each Pokemon- which is cool.
Dosen't reccomend best Pokemon.
I personally would have liked to see what games each of the Pokemon have appeared in, but that's pretty much the only thing that would improve the book for me.
It's nicely illustrated and is in full Colour throughout.
The book is good value for money.
Will be enjoyed and useful for fans of all ages. (I'm 48).
It's like a Pokemon encyclopedia and really useful if you play Pokemon go. My daughter hasn't put it down! Highly recommend.
