The Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version Handbook (ISBN 978-0545316521) is an edition of The Official Pokémon Handbook series that was published by Scholastic on August 1, 2011. It serves as a paper form of the Unova Pokédex from Black and White and contains entries for all the Generation V Pokémon but Keldeo, Meloetta, and Genesect. It also contains information about Professor Juniper, N, Fennel, and the Unova Gym Leaders. It also has a preface about Pokémon types. Unlike previous entries in the series, this book is based on the video games rather than the anime, with extensive use of Ken Sugimori's official art throughout.
