Exclusive Artwork by Ken Sugimori

The first section of the book contains official artwork by Ken Sugimori which had not previously been released to North American audiences. This includes several illustrations from Pokémon FireRed & Pokémon LeafGreen: Super Music Collection's Japanese release and the famous "Encounter with Shiny Pokémon" illustration.

The Bare Essentials

This section contains an overview of the premise of the Pokémon core series. It explains and provides details on topics such as type effectiveness, information on where to find move tutors, instructions on how to obtain the National Pokédex in each game, evolution methods, different ways to search for wild Pokémon (fishing, Surfing, etc), breeding and Egg Groups, version-exclusive Pokémon, and information on which legendary Pokémon are obtainable in each game, including Colosseum and XD. Finally, it also includes an alphabetical list of all Pokémon which had been revealed so far, including Jirachi and Deoxys.


The majority of the book's content is found in the Pokédex section. As in previous strategy guides such as Pokémon Master Pokédex, this section provides detailed information on every one of the 386 Pokémon obtainable at the time of the book's release, including Jirachi and Deoxys.

Each Pokémon's entry includes basic information, approximate base stat totals, possible evolutionary methods, game locations in the five Generation III core series games as well as in Colosseum and XD, and learnsets by leveling up, move tutor, and Egg moves.


The final section of the book contains supplemental information, including a section for how to obtain special items and Pokémon in Emerald and XD, and an Appendix section, which has details on every TM and HM in the games, every Berry in the games, and every Move along with information on their in-battle effects.



  • On pages 11 and 12, Qwilfish's name is misspelled as "Quilfish".
    • Page 12 also misspells Snubbull's name as "Snubull".
  • In the "Unique Pokémon" section on page 12, Groudon is incorrectly stated to be exclusive to Sapphire and Kyogre is stated to be exclusive to Ruby; it is actually the other way around.
  • On page 66, Tyrogue is incorrectly stated to evolve into Hitmonlee if its Attack is lower than its Defense; it is actually the other way around. Tyrogue actually evolves into Hitmonchan if its Attack is lower than its Defense; this is correctly stated on the opposite page.
  • On page 211, Professor Birch is misspelled as "Proffesor Birch".
  • Page 212 incorrectly states that the Aguav Berry eliminates Sleep condition and confuses Pokémon that dislike its bitter flavor. It actually restores HP, like other Berries that may cause confusion.
