Collector's Pokédex Book
Collector's Pokédex Books are a type of DVD package that were released by Magna Pacific (now known as Beyond Home Entertainment) for DVD Region 4.
Each Collector's Pokédex Book contains all of the regular dubbed episodes that take place in a particular region (or two in the case of Pokémon Kanto and Orange Islands Collection). They are each designed to look like the Pokédex of that particular region.
The front cover and back cover of each Collector's Pokédex Book together include portraits of all Pokémon introduced. Inside the front cover is an anime map of the featured region (the Pokémon Kanto and Orange Islands Collection includes a Kanto map here, with an anime map of the Orange Islands immediately before the discs featuring Orange Islands episodes).
The book has slots for 2 discs on each side of each page. Next to each disc in the book is an episode listing for that disc as well as a profile of a Pokémon that is featured in at least one of the episodes. This profile includes an original description, its height and weight (in metric units), its types, its category, its Abilities (but not its Hidden Ability), and its evolutionary line. The episodes are numbered from 1 (regardless of their place in their respective season).
Each Collector's Pokédex Book includes a description of the major characters in that region at the start of the book. The Pokémon Kanto and Orange Islands Collection includes a brief description of the main characters that have not appeared in the previous sections before the Orange Islands and Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire Kanto sections. The DVDs don't include English closed captioning.
