====Generation V====
[[File:Key Pokédex m Sprite.png|frame|rightthumb|Male Unova Pokédex sprite when obtaining it]]

The [[Generation V]] Pokédex is similar to the Pokédex from {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}. It is displayed as a list on the right side of the lower screen with the selected Pokémon's sprite occupying the left side. Most of its functions are also similar to [[Generation IV]]'s. Instead of showing the time of day that a Pokémon can be caught, as in Generation IV, the Pokédex shows the seasons in which it can be found. Areas in which the Pokémon can be found flash red, and touching an area will show the methods by which it can be caught (walking in [[tall grass]], {{m|surf}}ing, or [[fishing]]). The height and weight comparison feature has been removed, but a section showing form differences and a search feature are added by [[Cedric Juniper]] when the player visits [[Mistralton City]]. The form difference section will now show [[Shiny Pokémon]] as well as form differences. The last sprite selected will become the one displayed in the main entry. The ability to collect foreign Pokédex entries now only applies to the first 493 Pokémon, but the player can now also collect Korean Pokédex entries. The cry page has been added again as well.
 
In the [[National Pokédex]], there are color codes used to represent Pokémon introduced in each [[generation]]: red for [[Generation I]], yellow for {{gen|II}}, green for {{gen|III}}, blue for {{gen|IV}}, pink for {{gen|V}}, and silver for {{gen|VI}}. Like in Generation V, players may choose the default entry image for each Pokémon species, as long as they have seen that gender, coloration, or form of that species before. Like in previous games, acquiring Pokémon from foreign-language games will unlock the ability to view entries in those languages, so long as the player owns or has owned a Pokémon from that language. This time, all Pokémon entries can be obtained, allowing for both Generation V and VI entries for the first time.

====Generation VII====
The [[Generation VII]] Pokédex consists of a device specially-designed to be inhabited by a {{p|Rotom}}, an innovation that gives the Pokédex its own personality and is intended as a new way for humans and Pokémon to communicate. In addition to a standard Pokédex function, the [[Rotom Pokédex]] includes a detailed map that can point out nearby locations of interest, and remind the player of the next objective based on recent conversations with NPCs. The Rotom Pokédex is a rare model even in the [[Alola]] region where it was created.
{{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}} added the ability to search by Height and Weight (instead of simply sorting by them), and also allowed search by Area ([[Johto]], [[Kanto]], or Unknown). National Mode was added by talking with [[Professor Oak]] in the [[S.S. Aqua]] port in [[Olivine City]] after defeating the Elite Four.
 
In [[Generation V]], the Pokédex for {{4v|Black|White}} allows the player to search for Pokémon with the following criteria: Order ([[List of Pokémon by National Pokédex number|Number]], [[List of Pokémon by name|A to Z]], [[List of Pokémon by weight|Heavy to Light]], [[List of Pokémon by weight|Light to Heavy]], [[List of Pokémon by height|Tall to Short]], and [[List of Pokémon by height|Short to Tall]]), [[List of Pokémon by name|Name]] (All letters of the alphabet), Type, [[List of Pokémon by color|Color]], which was returned to the search after being dropped in [[Generation IV]], and [[List of Pokémon by body style|Form]]. Unlike in {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, the ability to search for Pokémon by area was dropped. By changing the Pokédex type, the player can search for [[List of Pokémon by Unova Pokédex number|Pokémon native to the Unova Region]] or from other regions, but in order to search for other Pokémon, the player must have first been obtained the [[List of Pokémon by National Pokédex number|National Pokédex]] upgrade from [[Cedric Juniper]] after the defeat of [[Team PlasmaGhetsis]]{{sup/5|BW}}/[[Iris]]{{sup/5|B2W2}}. After obtaining the upgrade, the player can switch the Pokédex type from the [[List of Pokémon by National Pokédex number|National Pokédex]] to the [[List of Pokémon by Unova Pokédex number|Unova Pokédex]] at will by simply tapping "SELECT" in the lower portion of the touch screen or by pressing the SELECT button on the DS System. In {{game|Black and White|s|Pokémon Black 2 and White 2|2}}, it is not possible to use the Search Function in the Habitat List mode of the Pokédex.
 
In [[Pokémon X and Y]], the ability to search for Pokémon that are not caught was added. Furthermore, only the currently set form of a Pokémon will be considered by the Pokédex when sorting and searching. All other forms will be ignored, and the form setting will not change to make the Pokémon match the search criteria. If the form is changed in the entry and the Pokémon either no longer matches the search criteria or belongs in a different place in the list, its entry will vanish or move according to its new form. The regional Pokédex is divided into three categories, each with separate Pokémon and search functions: Central Kalos (the first one unlocked), Coastal Kalos (unlocked by [[Sina]] and [[Dexio]] upon entering {{rt|8|Kalos}}), and Mountain Kalos (unlocked by Sina and Dexio in the gate between [[Coumarine City]] and {{rt|13|Kalos}}, after beating [[Ramos]]). The National Pokédex upgrade is obtained from Dexio after entering the Hall of Fame, upon entering Lumiose Station.
 
==Evaluation==
 
There are various mechanisms to evaluate the number of Pokémon in the Pokédex. These mechanisms will display a quote relating to the number of Pokémon seen or caught, often including a hint to the player of how to progress.
 
 
==Completion==
[[File:Diploma RB.png|framethumb|Diploma awarded in Red and Blue]]
:''See also: [[Diploma]]''
Completing the Pokédex is a common goal of Trainers and carries with it much esteem due to its difficulty, which has gradually escalated due to the fact that around 100 new Pokémon are introduced with each new generation. However, this is mitigated to a degree by new features added to the games, such as Wi-Fi and the [[Global Trade System]] in [[Generation IV]], and a less restrictive trading system (between PC boxes instead of only active teams) in [[Generation V]]. The exclusion of event Pokémon as a requirement for completing the Pokédex also makes it possible for people with no access to event distributions to complete the Pokédex.
 
In [[Pokémon X and Y]], [[Professor Sycamore]] will reward the player with an [[Oval Charm]] upon seeing all Pokémon in the Kalos Pokédex, except for {{p|Articuno}}, {{p|Zapdos}}, {{p|Moltres}}, and {{p|Mewtwo}}. Upon completing the [[National Pokédex]], the player will receive a [[Shiny Charm]] from Sycamore.

In [[Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]], [[Professor Birch]] will reward the player with an [[Oval Charm]] upon seeing all Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex, except for {{p|Jirachi}}. Should the player complete the [[National Pokédex]], Birch will also reward the player with a [[Shiny Charm]]. Also in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the diplomas given by the director can be displayed in the player's [[Secret Base]] and can be viewed in the same way when obtaining it from the director. Other players visiting the secret base cannot see the full image on the diplomas, but instead will view it as an "impressive certificate".
