Pokemon guides since the fourth generation have traditionally been split into two volumes: the main guide, with a walkthrough and movelists for the Pokemon available in that generation; and a second volume with a complete Pokedex, item lists, strategies and a guide for everything after the Elite 4. This guide doesn't have much of that.
There's no guide for anything that opens up after beating the Elite 4, which is inexcusable considering there's several towns including one which has some hard-to-work-out mechanics. The Pokedex only has the Black/White Pokemon, which is mind-boggling considering there's old Pokemon in the game too. It also has an indepth guide to the Xtranciever which would have been useful in the last volume, and devotes many, many pages to catching just the 156 Pokemon from Black/White. But at least the item indexes are complete.
I feel cheated having bought this for £10, never mind the RRP of £14.99. To get both volumes new would cost £30, as much as the game, and you don't even get all the info. If you really want to catch them all, you'd be better off printing an internet guide.
