The '''Pokédex''' (Japanese: '''ポケモン{{tt|図鑑|ずかん}}''' ''illustrated Pokémon encyclopedia'') is a digital encyclopedia created by [[Professor Oak]] as an invaluable tool to {{pkmn|Trainer}}s in the [[Pokémon world]]. It gives information about all {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} in the world that are contained in its database, although it differs in how it acquires and presents information over the different media. However, they are also only given to a few Trainers at a time, generally to the ones that are felt to have exceptional potential and skill. There are different types of Pokédexes and each Pokédex is special to a specific region.
Pokédex entries typically describe a Pokémon in only two or three sentences. They may give background information on the habitat or activities of a Pokémon in the wild or other information on the Pokémon's history or anatomy. Pokédex entries also include height, weight, cry, footprint (prior to [[Generation VI]]), location, other forms, and a picture of the Pokémon.
