The entries for each Pokémon are in an easy-to-read page setup. Each Pokémon has either an entire page to itself, or shares a page with one of its evolutions, or another Pokémon. If a Pokémon has a Mega Evolution, it is listed immediately afterwards.
Each entry is topped with a bar which contains both the Pokémon's name and species name, with the color of the bar depending on the first letter of the Pokémon's name.
Each Pokémon has the following stats below its name:
- How to say it
- Height and weight
- Possible Moves (moves the Pokémon will learn by leveling up)
The Pokémon's type is listed separately inside a small circle next to the picture of the Pokémon. The color of the circle reflects the Pokémon's type.
Image and other information
Each Pokémon has an anime-style picture on its page. Legendary and Mythical Pokémon are labelled as such.
At the very bottom of a Pokémon's entry is a diagram of its evolutionary family. Pokémon that do not evolve do not have an evolution chain. A Pokémon that is on one side of a branched evolution will show itself, and the Pokémon it evolved from, but not the other side of the branch.
- Salamence is listed as a Dragon/Fighting-type instead of a Dragon/Flying-type.
- Mega Aggron is listed as a Steel/Rock-type instead of just a Steel-type.
- Detect is listed twice in Absol's Pokédex entry.
- Kadabra is listed as a Poison/Flying-type instead of a Psychic-type.
