====Generation V====
[[File:Key Pokédex m Sprite.png|left|thumb|Male Unova Pokédex sprite when obtaining it]]
[[File:Key Pokédex f Sprite.png|thumb|Female 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 spin-off series==
===In the Pokémon Pinball series===
The games [[Pokémon Pinball]] and [[Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire]] have a Pokédex option in the menu.
 
====Available Pokémon====
In [[Pokémon Pinball]], the 151 [[Generation I]] Pokémon are shown in the [[List of Pokémon by Kanto Pokédex number|Kanto Pokédex]] order.
 
In [[Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire]], there are 205 available Pokémon: 201 [[Generation III]] Pokémon (all the Generation III Pokémon except for {{p|Deoxys}}) and 4 Pokémon from previous generations: {{p|Chikorita}}, {{p|Cyndaquil}}, {{p|Totodile}}, and {{p|Aerodactyl}}. The 201 available Generation III Pokémon are shown in the [[List of Pokémon by Hoenn Pokédex number (Generation III)|Generation III Hoenn Pokédex]] order, and the other Pokémon are unnumbered and displayed after them. The Pokédex is considered complete if the first 201 Pokémon are captured, which makes the word "complete" appear with a medal.
 
====Pokédex information and images====
In both games, the captured and seen Pokémon appear as visible names on the Pokédex list, while other Pokémon are unidentified. Additionally, in [[Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire]], there is a Poké Ball icon next to the name of each captured Pokémon. Each full Pokédex entry is only available for a captured Pokémon. Specifically, the Pokédex displays a Pokémon's number, name, height, weight, {{pkmn|category}} and description, together with an image of the Pokémon. If the Pokémon was only seen, then only the name and category are displayed, and there is a black silhouette instead of the complete image. The Pokédex information may be shared between players to some extent, as detailed in the [[#Connectivity|connectivity]] section below.
 
In the Pokédex screen, the player may press Start (in [[Pokémon Pinball]]) or Select (in [[Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire]]) to see the Pokémon sprite animation that would appear when a Pokémon is in the process of being captured or hatched. This is unavailable for other Pokémon that are acquired only via evolution or bonus stages and thus don't have an animation like these. This only works if the Pokémon is shown as captured in the Pokédex. In [[Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire]], the text "Press Select" appears when this is available for a given Pokémon.
 
In [[Pokémon Pinball]], the Pokédex entries are taken from {{game|Red and Blue|s}}. In [[Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire]], the Pokédex entries for the Generation III Pokémon are taken from {{game|Ruby and Sapphire|s}}. The Pokédex description for Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, and Aerodactyl is simply "Bonus appearance on Ruby Field."
 
In [[Pokémon Pinball]], pressing Select at the Pokédex screen displays numbers in the format "x/y" at the top of the screen, where x is the number of captured Pokémon and y is the number of seen Pokémon. (for instance, "015/023" means that there are 15 captured Pokémon, out of 23 seen Pokémon) In [[Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire]], the Pokédex just displays the number of captured and seen Pokémon like in the [[core series]] without having to press any button. All captured Pokémon also count as seen Pokémon, like in the [[core series]] games.
 
In [[Pokémon Pinball]], the first 150 Pokédex slots (from {{p|Bulbasaur}} to {{p|Mewtwo}}) appear as unidentified empty lines by default since the beginning; {{p|Mew}} is the next Pokémon, which only appears at the end of the list if he is seen or captured, otherwise its respective line is not shown at all. Similarly, in [[Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire]], the first 200 Pokédex slots (from {{p|Treecko}} to {{p|Rayquaza}}) appear as unidentified "-------" lines by default since the beginning. The next Pokémon are Jirachi, Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, and Aerodactyl. If the player sees or captures any of them, then its line appears and any previous lines above it appear as new "-------" lines if applicable.
 
====Connectivity====
In [[Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire]], it's possible for two players at a time to share the Pokédex to some extent by connecting the [[Game Link Cable]] and then pressing Start at the Pokédex screen. This brings up a confirmation screen to finish this procedure. Once this is done, if either player has a captured Pokémon that the other player does not have, the name and image of that Pokémon become visible to the latter player. However, the image of shared Pokémon is darkened and other information (category, height, weight, and description) is still not shown, indicating that the Pokémon was not captured yet. The {{pkmn|category}} of that Pokémon is shown only if the Pokémon was seen by normal means. This procedure does not affect the number of captured and seen Pokémon of either player. A Pokémon that was just seen (that is, not captured) in normal play or that is visible in the Pokédex just because of Pokédex sharing can't be shared with other players. This procedure works normally between games from different languages.
 
====Capturing and seeing Pokémon====
In both games, when the player starts the Catch 'Em Mode, the silhouette of the Pokémon appears; at this point, the Pokémon counts as "seen". If the player successfully captures that Pokémon, it counts as "captured".
 
In [[Pokémon Pinball]], when the player starts the Evolution Mode and chooses a Pokémon to evolve, the evolved form counts as "seen". (even though the evolved form does not visibly appear until the end of the evolution procedure) In [[Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire]], it's not possible to count a Pokémon as "seen" via evolution. In either game, if the player successfully evolves a Pokémon, it counts as "captured".
 
In [[Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire]], when the player hatches an {{pkmn|Egg}}, the baby Pokémon starts moving through the pinball table; at this point, the Pokémon counts as "seen". If the player successfully captures that Pokémon, it counts as "captured".
 
====Deleting Pokédex data====
In [[Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire]], it is possible to delete the Pokédex data by pressing left while simultaneously pressing L + R three times. This brings up a prompt asking confirmation to delete the data.
 
===In the Pokémon Ranger series===
The Pokémon Ranger series don't have Pokédexes but have regional Browsers that also lists Pokémon and give them their own Browser number unique for each region.
 
The Fiore Browser can list Pokémon by Browser Number, letter, weight, and height.
 
===In the Pokémon Trading Card Game series===
In {{ga|Pokémon Trading Card Game}} and [[Pokémon Card GB2: Here Comes Team GR!]], there is no Pokédex. However, a similar feature is the {{DL|PC|card album}} in the [[PC]], which lists cards in order and the quantity of cards owned by the player, not counting repeated cards. In both games, the cards are usually organized by their [[index number]] hidden in the internal data, which separates the Pokémon cards by {{TCG|type}} and then orders them by their [[National Pokédex]] number. The National Pokédex number is printed on all Pokémon cards. The {{OBP|Pokédex|Base Set 87}} card is available in both games. The {{OBP|Imakuni?|CoroCoro promo}} card (also found in both games) states that [[Tomoaki Imakuni|Imakuni?]] is a creature not listed in the Pokédex.
