Pokémon apps[edit]

Pokédex 3D and Pokédex 3D Pro[edit]

Pokédex 3D is a software available for download from the Nintendo eShop. It is a Pokédex, which displays information on Pokémon from the Black and White versions as well as a 3D model. Only a few Pokémon are initially available, and more can be unlocked through means such as StreetPass, AR cards, and SpotPass.[48][49]

On April 21, 2012, Nintendo announced that there will be a National Pokédex version called Pokédex 3D Pro. It was released in Japan on the Nintendo eShop on July 14, 2012, and internationally on November 8, 2012. Unlike the original, the Pro edition app is not for free, and all Pokémon are already available rather than unlocking them over time although some that not available can unlocked by entering the special code on the official website. In addition, it has the background music, new modes, more scenes and backgrounds and features the voice for the name of every Pokémon. The Pro edition replaced the original free app as it became unavailable once it was removed from the eShop on June 17, 2012 in Japan and on October 1, 2012 internationally. An official iOS version was released on November 15, 2012 in Japan, and on December 10, 2012 internationally; the app includes all Unova Pokémon by default, while the Pokémon from the remaining regions must be added via in-app purchases.[50]
