A good, helpful guide,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pokemon: Essential Handbook: The Need-To-Know Stats and Facts on Over 640 Pokemon (Pokemon (Scholastic Paperback)) (Paperback)
This was a purchase for my son. He likes it a lot and it's well read already. It is not an exhaustive list of every single Pokémon in existence, but is a good book all the same. I guess they have a lot of new Pokémon since this book was written or they just excluded some for whatever reasons. It gives a run down of stats and basic facts for many different Pokémon. It includes many well known and a lot of legendary pokemon. If this book has a basic of a pokemon it will also have all of its evolutions. The Pokémon are all listed in alphabetical order and there are images and names of the evolutions of each pokemon at the bottom of every profile within the book. Or if states they do not evolve for those Pokémon who don't.
It is a good purchase for anyone wanting more detailed information on pokemon, maybe a young fan that is just starting to get into Pokémon. This may whet their appetite. I hope this review is useful to somebody.
