3.0 out of 5 stars Extended information of what is available in the book 4 Feb 2014
By Oscar Rodriguez - Published on
Verified Purchase
The post adventure strategy guide is only as expansive as the content found in-game after beating it. As such, I'll just list a few things not mentioned in the description to help other potential customers decide if it's worth buying this guide.

The poster included is approximately 30in by 37in, or 58cm by 94cm
The guide explains the functions of Battle Maison
The guide lists all available Pokémon found in Friend Safari
The guide provides the areas where the roaming legendary birds can be found to force them into Sea Spirit's Den
The guide provides ranking information for the Battle Institute
The guide provides extensive information for the Looker sidequest.
The guide has outdated information on the breeding mechanics. (to be discussed below)
The guide provides the locations of the megastones
The guide explains how the Pokéradar works

This strategy guide has the same layout as the previous guide, with an introduction of the new location with a checklist of items and Pokémon obtainable in said area, followed by points of interests worth checking out. Just like the guide before it, it has a list of the egg groups readily available, so there's no need to refer to the previous guide for the information. The guide also gives information on how Pokémon breeding works but it's a tad outdated. The information that is outdated is still correct, but it does not explain that the mechanics have been simplified, making it far easier to breed a Pokémon with the desired traits.

The first half of the guide does its job in assisting the player find all the post-game content while providing tips where applicable.
The second half of the guide, which is the Pokédex, is as informative as it can be. The Pokédex provides an in-depth look at the Pokémon's level-up moves, TM&HM moves, egg moves, and tutor moves. It also provides information on where to find the Pokémon, the facilities you can use them in, and the damage taken in both regular battles and inverse battles. Superfluous information includes their evolution line and front/side/rear views of the Pokémon. The Pokédex guide also provides extensive information on alternate forms, such as the multiple patterns of Vivillon.

All in all, the guide provides the necessary information that you need in one handy location if you dislike browsing the internet for the information and does a great job with the Pokédex. However, it does have its downsides:

The guide only has the Pokédex information for the three Kalos regions. So you won't find information on Pokémon not native to Kalos, like Rattata and Entei.
The information to find items is not as extensive as guides found online.
The Pokédex does not use numerical values for the base stats and still use the bar system from previous guides.
It's paperback.

In Generation V, only the males can pass down moves, and only the females can pass down the Hidden Ability.
In Generation VI, both males and females can pass down moves and pass down the Hidden Ability. The female will pass down the Pokéball that it was caught in to its offspring. Example: a female Pancham caught it a Net Ball will always pass the Net Ball down to its offspring. Master Ball and Cherish Balls cannot be passed down.

2.0 out of 5 stars For something that took 4 months, it should have been better! 20 Feb 2014
By kyle72686 - Published on
My disappointment at there only being the 450 Pokemon found in the three sections of the Kalos region pokedex instead of the full 718-721 Pokemon that exist now was something I was willing the put aside when I purchased this guide. However, for something that was released 4 months after the game, I expected in that much time that the writers would have done a good job. I was very disappointed.

The first time I was reading through it, I found that it contains a lot of incorrect information, specifically in the section about breeding Pokemon. Everything in that section pertains to the fifth generation of Pokemon games (Black, White, Black 2, & White 2) and doesn't reflect any of the changes that were made in X and Y. For example, there is no mention of female Pokemon passing on egg moves, it claims TM moves can still be passed on by the male, and it says that hidden abilities can still only be passed on by the female. None of that is true anymore. It's like they just copied and pasted information from a guide for Black and White and didn't bother using the game to help write the guide for it.

It does have a lot of useful information, but it is outweighed by the wrong information and the lack of the other 260+ Pokemon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete, but thorough in what it does have 7 Feb 2014
By K - Published on

As other reviews have probably mentioned, this Pokedex doesn't have all the Pokemon in it, which is annoying considering that's why I bought it! At least the stuff it does have (post-game info, some of the Pokemon) seems complete. The font for the Pokemon information (like TMs, etc) that does exist is also in a really tiny font, and I'm not an old man!

Honestly, I'd just use websites like Serebii . net (look it up) to get any information needed and skip the guide. I'd like to buy a complete guide - unfortunately, this isn't it! I like having all the Pokemon in one book that I can reference!

P.S. the poster is cool. I'll probably keep it for that and the post game information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Overload of Knowledge! 8 Feb 2014
By Keegan - Published on
Verified Purchase
From the perspective of a 14 year old boy, I truly believe this book is amazing! It contains information of all the post-game events, including a full step-by-step of the Looker series, and more than enough information on mega evolution and all the stones. The poked is wonderful too. It is based off the 3 Kalos pokedexes (Central, Coastal, and Mountain), so do not expect a full national pokedex. (Contains a little over 450 pokemon). The poked information for the pokemon has also been increased, including specifying the differences between genders for some pokemon, and a full guide to the Vivillon forms, including a world map for where each form is.

Overall, the guide is wonderful, and I fully recommend it to any pokemon fan.

I'm not entirely sure why they waited so long to release this, but it's very comprehensive and gives lots of valuable information if you're not wanting to look online.
