The New PokéDex!
Per the most recent scans of this month's CoroCoro, we've gotten our very first glimpse of the new PokéDex we'll be given in the Karos region [LOOK HERE]. Unlike the previous versions of the PokéDex, this one is divided into three sections: Central Karos PokéDex, Coastal Karos PokéDex, and Mountain Karos PokéDex.

What do you think this means? Is it a replacement to the Habitat feature from Black 2 and White 2? Do you like the look of the new PokéDex? What other new features would you like to see? Discuss!

PS. If you want to discuss completing the PokéDex, then there's a thread about that here.

It's an IPokePad mostly. But Central, Coastal and Mountain just seem to be the base of it, maybe we can unlock more in the game.

Zorogami May 13th, 2013 11:28 PM

I like the new design, looks so futuristic and somewhat inspired by the real-life tablets.
I guess the new sections may be the new habitat feature, i hope there are more than 3 though

The new Pokedex looks really cool imo. I like how it has a modern tablet look and that's it's some what holographic. I like the idea of the 3 sections and do see it replacing the Habitat feature in B2W2. I just wonder what Pokemon will be in which section. I kind of see it like the feature in the FRLG Pokedex which divided Pokemon into separate environments. I guess that means Pokemon like Geodude,Golurk, Bronzor and Gogoat will be in the mountain Pokedex. (Just examples since we have no clue what older Pokemon are in the Karos Pokedex yet.Or if the national sex will be divided the same way.) or water Pokemon like Tentacool will be in the Coastal Karos Pokedex.

Yeah, I'm actually kinda surprised. I wasn't expecting it to be portrayed as something like this. It looks nice and sleek like a Pokedex should, I can't wait to see the features it has inside the actual game. It's going to be great. :D

Branellope May 14th, 2013 12:41 AM

Central I assume is the towns and cities in the middle of the map, Coastal will be across the dividing rivers and any islands surrounding Karos, Mountain will obviously be the huge mountains at the back.
Hopefully there'll be different Pokemon in each part of the dex.

Blue May 14th, 2013 2:21 AM

It's a new and interesting spin on the Pokedex, I think Central will be the general group of Pokemon found in Karos, Costal would be more water based Pokemon and then Mountain having Ground and Grass type Pokemon such as Gogoat maybe?

It's so...PRETTYYYYYY!! Also, I love this concept of regionalizing the Dex. It would make it quite convinent if things were organized primarily by where you get them. I wonder if they'll keep the Habitat List in this time? I didn't find it THAT useful...

Agreed, the design is very nice and the areas function would make sorting and locating Pokemon easier

Here's a higher quality image thanks to the Pokémon Official Site. This is what they had to say about it:


The Pokédex is a high-tech device that records information, such as Pokémon you've seen, as well as their traits and Habitats. Try to find every kind of Pokémon and complete the Pokédex. The Pokémon that reside in the Kalos region are registered in one of three area categories.
By the sound of it, it looks like the Habitat feature will not be removed or replaced.

Branellope May 14th, 2013 5:22 AM

I can't WAIT for the new PokéDex toy.

Jake♫ May 14th, 2013 5:26 AM

Is the coastal, main land, and mountain split maybe a new generalized habitat function? Or is it just a general first category, and then you can search into more specific terms? I'd like that personally, as it sounds really functional to me (Plus it kind of hints at what environment we'll be seeing in Karos!).

Aesthetically I'm really loving it as well. It looks like they've taken a nod from today's technology age and made it a tablet, but they made it expandable to have a more hologram-like screen. Maybe it will project holograms, or we'll just have a touch screen method to deal with it. Either way, I'm loving the whole revamp of the Pokédex!

Serebii has updated with new images of the Pokédex
Seems that we have a compare function that allows us to compare a Pokémon to their Evolution or Shiny colour, but, there's other things, what are Type 1 and Type 2, what is shape? (egg group?)

also 2 of the icons at the bottom suggest Pokémon cry and Pokémon Location

Jake♫ May 14th, 2013 11:02 AM

I'm hoping that it doesn't just limit us to comparing evolutions. It looks like you'd almost be able to compare it with anything that you have available in the Pokédex (and more than likely stuff you've already captured so you'd have the detailed information on them). The bottom middle button seems to be the Pokémon Cry button.

Bigger version of the earlier image seems to have Zigzagoon in the Pokédex (look closely at the grid on the bottm).

Rivvon May 14th, 2013 11:07 AM

So instead of basing it on a 3DS as per tradition, it's a WiiU tablet? ^u^

So neat! Glad to see sprites will be staying at least in the PokéDex. Fletchling's looks adorable! And is that Hariyama or Wormadam or Mothim underneath Zigzagoon?

Blue May 15th, 2013 4:13 AM

I just noticed that too, looks like we'll be having mixed generation Pokemon added to the Pokedex which is great! Also notice how there are two blank spaces after Fletchling and then there's another Pokemon which resembles Pidgey, I think this confirms that Fletchling has another two evolutions.

PlatinumDude May 15th, 2013 6:01 AM

I like the new Dex's design because of its holographic-like interface. The categories are a bit of a step up from the Habitat List.

Daydream May 15th, 2013 6:20 AM

I'm thinking the coastal/central/mountain split may suggest that there's going to be an abundance of Pokémon. Lots of new ones, and plenty of old ones to round it out!

pokerex May 15th, 2013 6:53 AM

everybody says it looks like a tablet, but it looks more like an iphone IMO

yeah, so many Pokemon that splitting the dex is the only way to organise em all

Zorogami May 15th, 2013 11:59 AM

Maybe the split into 3 different sections is a new style approach?
Kinda like the habitat feature in BW. I do hope though this means there will be a LOT of pokes to catch!!

Katamari May 15th, 2013 12:10 PM

The region divisions are kinda reminiscent of FireRed and LeafGreen's PokeDexes which I personally wasn't fond of.

I liked the habitat feature in BW2, maybe they're taking it a step up from there. It'll be hard to judge until we get clearer screenshots of it. Maybe they're just broadening the whole 'per route' thing (which was a pain in the butt) and making it more regional. Now that would be cool.

I'm also squealing at the fact that we're getting Zigzagoon in the game - Linoone is SO amazing ;A; It looks like it appears kinda early in it too

Bluerang1 May 15th, 2013 12:43 PM

The device looks bland but the features are promising.

Blue May 15th, 2013 1:29 PM

I like the design of the Pokedex, it's relevant to the modern technology we have today. Who knows, it might come with additional features that previous Pokedex models didn't have.

KJ May 16th, 2013 2:04 AM

the design of the new pokedex is great! I really like the looks of it. Almost like something Tony Stark would use haha.
