In the spin-off games: Move to Pokédex (spin-off games) (which is mostly content I had added here before) and add a shorter intro here.
 
==In the spin-off games==
===In{{main|Pokédex the(spin-off Pokémon Pinball series===games)}}
The games [[Pokémon Pinball]] and [[Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire]] have a Pokédex option in the menu.
 
====AvailableThe Pokémon====Pokédex appears in various spin-off games.
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:Stadium Ruby & Sapphire(Japanese)]], there are 205 Pokémon. The first 201 are the Pokémon from the [[List of Pokémon by Hoenn Pokédex numberStadium (Generation IIIEnglish)|Generation III Hoenn Pokédex]], except for {{p|Deoxys}}, which is unavailable from this game. They are shown in the numerical order of that Pokédex. Then there are 4 unnumberedand [[Pokémon notStadium found in2]], the Hoenn Pokédex: {{p|Chikorita}}, {{p|Cyndaquil}}, {{p|Totodile}}, and {{p|Aerodactyl}}. The Pokédex is considereda complete3D ifvisualization theof firsta 201[[Generation PokémonI]] fromor the[[Generation HoennII]] Pokédex[[core areseries]] captured,game whichconnected makesvia the[[Transfer word "complete" appear with a medalPak]].
* In [[Pokémon Pinball]] and [[Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire]], the Pokédex lists Pokémon seen and captured via Pinball games.
====* In {{ga|Pokémon Ranger}}, [[Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia]], and [[Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs]], there is no Pokédex, informationbut they have regional Browsers that also list Pokémon and images====give them their own Browser number unique for each region.
* In both{{ga|Pokémon games,Trading theCard capturedGame}} and seen Pokémon appear as visible names on the Pokédex list, while other Pokémon are unidentified. Additionally, in [[Pokémon PinballCard GB2: RubyHere Comes &Team SapphireGR!]], there is a Poké Ball icon next to the name of each captured Pokémon. Each fullno Pokédex entry is only available for a captured Pokémon. SpecificallyHowever, the Pokédex displays a Pokémon'ssimilar number,feature name,is height, weight,the {{pkmnDL|PC|categorycard album}} and description, together with an image ofin the Pokémon. If the Pokémon was only seen[[PC]], thenwhich onlylists thecards namein and category are displayed,order and therethe isquantity aof blackcards silhouetteowned instead ofby the complete imageplayer. The {{OBP|Pokédex|Base informationSet may87}} becard sharedis betweenalso players to some extent, as detailed in the [[#Connectivity|connectivity]] section belowavailable.
 
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 numbered 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 numbered "-------" 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, image, and description 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.
 
All Browsers can search for Pokémon by name, [[Poké Assist]], {{OBP|Field Move|Ranger}}, the Almia Browser can also search by Browser Number.
 
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. Additionally, the {{OBP|Pokédex|Base Set 87}} card is available in both games and the {{OBP|Imakuni?|CoroCoro promo}} card (also found in both games) states that [[Tomoaki Imakuni|Imakuni?]] is a creature not listed in the Pokédex.
