The Pokédex is one of the main elements of the game. It is a compendium of information about every Pokémon already caught and seen by player. It becomes more complete as trainers own and encounter new Pokémon.

Pokédex view

Pokédex page

To access the page of Pokédex in game:

  1. in Map View tap Main Menu button Button Main Menu.png
  2. tap Pokédex button White Button Pokédex.png

On the top of Pokédex page there are two player's stats, which are number of already caught and seen Pokémon.

Below them there are tabs with each region Pokémon and number of these Pokémon currently caught. Additionally when the Kanto tab is selected and it is top of the Pokédex scrollable page, currently owned Medals related to each region Pokémon appears above the respective tabs.

Whole, long page of Pokédex is filled with fields for every Pokémon species in game. There are three types of such fields:

  • non-interactive tile with a number of Pokémon species - species of this Pokémon has never been caught nor seen by player,
  • tile with shadow, monochromatic silhouette of Pokémon - species of this Pokémon has been only seen by a player (either has been seen in gym or encountered in the wild but has not been caught),
    • after tapping such field, player access incomplete Pokédex entry of specific Pokémon species,
  • field without background-tile and coloured image of Pokémon species - species of this Pokémon has been caught by player already,
    • after tapping such field, player access complete Pokédex entry of specific Pokémon species.

Pokédex view menu

Initially not all of the number tiles appear, but only those ones up to the field of Pokémon species that has been caught or seen with the highest Pokédex number in each region. There are different colors of tiles in each section for Pokémon species from each region:

  • Tiles from #1 to #151, responding to species from Kanto are pale purple,
  • Tiles from #152 to #251, responding to species from Johto are pale blue,
  • Tiles from #252 to #386, responding to species from Hoenn are pale purple,
  • Tiles from #387 to #493, responding to species from Sinnoh are pale blue,
  • Tiles from #494 to #649, responding to species from Unova are pale purple,
  • Tiles from #650 to #721, responding to species from Kalos are pale purple,
  • Tiles responding to species from Galar are pale red,
  • Tiles #808 and #809, which are for Meltan and Melmetal from an unknown region are pale red.

Also each section of such Pokémon has a header line with the name of region.

In the bottom right corner of the page there is a button that allows to change view between standard Pokédex and Mega Pokédex.

There are three ways to exit from the page of Pokédex:

  • by tapping on return button on the player's mobile device (not available for iPhone users for obvious reason),
  • by tapping on the exit button Button Close.png on the bottom of screen,
  • by swiping down at the very top of the list, which cause X icon appeared and then release.

Extra Pokédexes

In addition to standard Pokédex, there is several extra Pokédexes that register specific groups of Pokémon. Unlike standard Pokédex, extra Pokédexes do not have region Pokédex medals at the top of the pages. Mega Pokédex was introduced along the launch of Mega Evolution. The rest was introduced to a selected portion of Trainers on June 28th, 2021, [1][2] and was made available to everyone since the 5th Anniversary.[3] Other than the standard and Mega Pokédex, each additional one is unlocked after registering 10 different species of that category (so to unlock the Shiny Pokédex, you have to catch 10 different Shiny Pokémon); while Shiny Pokémon now have their own separate Extra Pokédex that must be unlocked, Shiny Shadow forms are registered in the Shadow Pokédex.

Mega Pokédex

The first extra Pokédex introduced. It registers all Mega Evolved forms of Pokémon. It is hued bright red and it is not split into region sections. Trainer has to mega-evolve male and female separately to register different genders. If the trainer has a shiny variant of the same species of a mega-evolved Pokémon, shiny switch is registered. It keeps track of the caught, seen and unseen Mega Evolved forms.

Event Pokédex

It registers all Event Pokémon. It is hued bright pink and it is not split into region sections. Gender and shiny switches are unlocked with respect to the standard Pokédex. It keeps track of the caught Event Pokémon, ignoring the missing.

Lucky Pokédex

It registers all Lucky Pokémon. It is hued bright light orange and it is split into region sections. Gender and shiny switches are unlocked with respect to the standard Pokédex. It keeps track of the caught, and missing Lucky Pokémon. Untradeable Pokémon are not shown, since they cannot be Lucky.

Shiny Pokédex

It registers all Shiny Pokémon. It is hued yellow and it is split into region sections. Gender switches are unlocked with respect to the standard Pokédex. It keeps track of the caught, seen and unseen Shiny Pokémon. The Pokédex entries show the shiny sprite by default.

Shiny 3 Stars Pokédex

It registers all Shiny Pokémon with Pokémon Appraisal of at least 3 stars. It is also hued yellow and it is split into region sections. Gender switches are unlocked with respect to the standard Pokédex. It keeps track of the caught and missing 3 stars Shiny Pokémon. The Pokédex entries show the shiny sprite by default.

3 Stars Pokédex

It registers all Pokémon with Pokémon Appraisal of at least 3 stars. It is hued orange and it is split into region sections. Gender and shiny switches are unlocked with respect to the standard Pokédex. It keeps track of the caught and missing 3 stars Pokémon.

Perfect Pokédex

It registers all perfect Pokémon. It is hued light pink and it is split into region sections. Gender and shiny switches are unlocked with respect to the standard Pokédex. It keeps track of the caught and missing perfect Pokémon.

Shadow Pokédex

It registers all Shadow Pokémon. It is hued dark purple and it is not split into region sections. Gender and shiny switches are unlocked with respect to the standard Pokédex. It keeps track of the caught and seen Shadow Pokémon, ignoring the missing.

Purified Pokédex

It registers all Purified Pokémon. It is hued light blue and it is not split into region sections. Gender and shiny switches are unlocked with respect to the standard Pokédex. It keeps track of the caught and seen Purified Pokémon, ignoring the missing.

Pokédex entry

Pokédex entries are basically separate pages with information about specific Pokémon species. There are two kinds of these entries: complete and incomplete ones.

Incomplete entries consist of:

  • 3D, animated and turnable Pokémon's image,
  • Pokédex number and Pokémon's name,
  • switch buttons between genders and/or forms,
  • amount of seen, caught, lucky and purified Pokémon of that species (in this case only seen is not 0).

While complete ones has also:

  • regular weight and height of Pokémon,
  • Pokémon's type(s),
  • category of Pokémon (e.g. Drill Pokémon, Volcano Pokémon, Armor Pokémon),
  • short description of Pokémon's species,
  • evolution line of Pokémon.

Pokémon form switches

Depending on what forms of each Pokémon were caught by trainer already, respective form switches appear underneath Pokémon's 3D image.

Registering a Shiny Pokémon will also register the non-shiny form to the Pokédex, if the Pokémon was not previously registered.

If player obtained for the last time particular Pokémon of any gender sometime before December, 2016, it might cause that both gender form switches appear as Pokémon were only seen, despite the complete Pokédex entry and exact Pokémon being already in player's Pokémon collection. [4]

Switches for only-seen Pokémon forms cannot be clicked since the version 0.89.1. Therefore even if player has seen female form of Pokémon in gym or has encountered it in wild but not caught, in Pokédex only male form is seen in its complete Pokédex entry.

Below there are assets for certain groups of Pokédex entry switch buttons for each Pokémon form.
