Search and order: replaced: List of Pokémon by body style → List of Pokémon by shape (2)
However, in {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}, the search function was dropped altogether, instead choosing to expand the sort functions by adding lists of Pokémon by type and [[List of Pokémon by habitat|habitat]]. Heaviest and Tallest orders were also removed. National Mode was unlocked by having obtained 60 Pokémon in the Pokédex, beating the Elite Four and completing the Sevii Island's sidequest.
[[Generation IV]] brought the Search function back, as well as Heaviest and Tallest orders. Habitat was dropped. Searches could now be conducted by [[List of Pokémon by body styleshape|Form]], but not by Color. The two Pokédex modes were [[List of Pokémon by Sinnoh Pokédex number|Sinnoh]] and National. National mode was unlocked by seeing every Pokémon in the Sinnoh Dex.
{{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 styleshape|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 [[Ghetsis]]{{sup/5|BW}}/[[Iris]]{{sup/5|B2W2}}. After obtaining the upgrade, the player can switch the Pokédex type from the 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.
