E311 | Pokédex 3D Heading to eShop and Free to Download on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Those who are disappointed with Nintendo's delay of the eShop on the 3DS may be happy to hear that Nintendo have announced a new application and it will be hitting the service on launch.

Pokédex 3D is a completely free application and will allow 3DS users to view the 150 new Pokemon from Black and White in 3D. Information about all the Pokemon is also included.

That's not all though, the application also comes packed with SpotPass and Augmented Reality features. From the start, players have 16 Pokemon unlocked. The remaining ones can then be unlocked by using SpotPass (this unlocks 3 random Pokémon per day) or trading data with friends, likely via StreetPass. Pokémon can also be unlocked by scanning QR Codes. The Augmented Reality feature allows you to take photos of Pokémon via the 3DS Camera. Other features include filtering and bookmark options.

A number of screenshots were also released, which can be seen below and through the media album.

If it's free I'll give it a try, just for the heck of it Smilie, even though I neither own or have played Pokémon Black & White.

"Pokédex 3D is a completely free application" Smilie

We might actually be looking at an early version of the Pokédex in the next Pokémon game for the 3DS here, so it's definitely interesting. Worth checking out for sure. Smilie

what a fantastic idea! wow stuff comming to 3ds thats decent and soonish, about time! Smilie

Free? Yes please Smilie

Add me on anything. I'm always looking for new friends/opponents/town visitors/chances to appear more popular than I actually am.

Free app, niiiice!!

Give a version for all PKMN (what is it, 500 or so?) and I'll gladly pay €2 for it.
If I had a 3DS.

Nice! Can't wait - testing the water for a full Pokedex feature? AR Pokemon would be great, definitely the next step for the franchise!
