Product Description

Amazon Review

For all the trading cards, cartoons and toys that make up the phenomenon, Pokémon has never forgotten its roots as an accomplished and strangely engaging GameBoy game. This guide from Prima tells you everything you need to know about playing the game (both Red and Blue versions) and training your Pokémon to perfection. The book doesn't just take you through the game in a linear fashion--because, after all, there is so much more to it than that. Here you will also find details of all 150 Pokémon (including where to find the more elusive creatures), their special abilities, the whereabouts of useful items and a heap of tips for the inevitable battles against other Pokémon trainers. It's presented very smartly, with clear maps of each location in the game (although the party-coloured backgrounds do get a bit tiring on the eye), and it really does tell you just about everything you need to know. Prima's Official Strategy Guide is an invaluable escort for your journey through the world of Pokémon. --David Bailey --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT POKEMON ADVICE FOR THE GAMEBOY 7 April 1999
By A Customer
I was at thepojo.com. Have you guys seen that place? They review all the Pokemon books, and said this was good. So I bought it, and they were right. This book answers every question you could possibly have. All the maps are here. A great Pokedex telling you when they evolve. All the TM's and HM's are all explained.
What more could you want?
p.s. - if you haven't visit thepojo.com ... you should!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Great Guide for a Great Game! 24 April 1999
By A Customer
This guide has everything you'll need. Detailed maps, a complete listing of moves and pokemon, and great tips on gameplay. The listings show when pokemon evolve, when they learn moves, and other good information. Move listings show power, accuracy, and PP. This is the best guide I could find, and I feel that you should get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Book 30 Jun 2010
A few small mistakes in this book, including wrong pictures and wrong names of places but other than that a fantastic guide to get you through the whole game. Prima guides are the best guides ive came across.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is ok 5 April 1999
By A Customer
The book is ok but the maps are wrong in the unknow dungun and they do not show stats of the pokemon in this book which they do in Nintendo's book on pokemon. Nintendo's book is all so much more elabrit. It shows phots of all the pokemon which primas does but they are very small.
