The Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version Handbook (ISBN 978-0545316521) is an edition of The Official Pokémon Handbook series that was published by Scholastic on August 1, 2011. It serves as a paper form of the Unova Pokédex from Black and White and contains entries for all the Generation V Pokémon but Keldeo, Meloetta, and Genesect. It also contains information about Professor Juniper, N, Fennel, and the Unova Gym Leaders. It also has a preface about Pokémon types.
