    There's simply not enough here to warrant the ludicrous price tag. Only diehard Pokemon fans need apply.

    Pokédex 3D Pro is a source of information that is incomplete. Nevertheless it is cool to look at Pokémon in 3D, but the price keeps you from buying it.

    Pokédex 3D Pro pulls tons of data and some fun asides together in a stylishly presented, smooth application, and the brand-new 3D Pokémon models are just delightful. However, the price point is far beyond what we'd expect to pay for such a package - especially when so much of the information is freely available online - and so, despite its quality, comes difficult to recommend to all but the most enthusiastic of Pokémon masters.

    As I sing the praises of how much of an improvement this application is, I can't help but shake the fact that the price of admission is very steep. Currently priced higher than any other eShop-exclusive game, there is no shame in thinking that 3D Pro is just too expensive. However, if you are a big fan of the series and can appreciate the app's specific content, Pokédex 3D Pro may be worth it.

    Pokédex 3D Pro is most certainly a Pokédex that is well done in terms of aesthetics and quality. However, it is of little help to the competitive community due to its lack of numbers and advanced searches and they will no doubt find more useful tools on the internet.

    Pokedex 3D Pro finishes what the original eShop version began, by becoming the de facto standard database option for Pocket Monster enthusiasts. It remains to be seen whether the Pro will interact specifically with the future mainline 3DS Pokémon titles, but for now, despite the low amount of actual play and the higher cost, there is a lot to see here.

    As a whole, Pokédex 3D Pro is a nice little device, however the biggest problem with it is the expense. At £13.49 (or $15), it's at least twice as much as it should be. This isn't a game, despite the quiz elements. It's a 3D viewer at best, and all the useful information is more accessible in Bulbapedia or Serebii or one of dozens of free (or cheap) Pokédex apps on mobile devices.

    The Pokedex 3D is a great tool to use when owning the DS Pokemon titles, however the app suffers from a high cost to buy, and the lack of replay value. (Replay value being the fact that the only semblance of an actual game lies in the quizzes, which eventually bore) However, if you have deep ePockets, so to speak, and you want to be able to see all the Pokemon in 3D and see them move around and perform (sometimes humorous if the A button is pressed repeatedly) unique actions, then I could recommend buying this. I feel that my review would be quite a bit more positive if the Pokedex 3D Pro just wasn't so darn expensive... Full Review »

    A Pokedex app with info you can find anywhere online. The 3D models are nice for making cool pictures for friends but otherwise meh. Not worth $16. I'll feel a little better if they update it with Gen 6 after release though. Full Review »
