Pokemon releases official guidebook in U.S.

Pokemon announced today the release of 'Pokémon X & Pokémon Y: The Official Kalos Region Pokédex & Postgame Adventure Guide' in the U.S.

The book itself contains stats on the 450 Pokemon in the Kalos Pokedex as well as other information pertaining to some of the secrets of the game that may have slipped gamers during their first play through.

These guidebooks are nothing new among the Pokemon series and have been around since Generation I. For those that were in elementary school during the early years of Pokemon, you may have found the Second Edition in your Scholastic book order form.

In the age of the internet the purposes of a guidebook are seemingly old-fashioned. There are numerous websites dedicated solely to the stats, moves, strengths and weakness of every Pokemon, making the role of the book fairly obsolete.

That being said it is a fun item to add to your collection if you are a hardcore Pokemon fan, and the art in these books is always topnotch. And considering how unstable the internet is at times, it might not be so bad to have all the information you need right on your bookshelf.
