Pokémon Kanto Handbook by Katherine Noll (ISBN 0439741460) is a handbook that was published in 2005, and is the sequel to The Official Pokémon Advanced Handbook #4. It served as a paper form of the Kanto Pokédex from FireRed and LeafGreen, and was released as an update of the original Official Pokémon Handbook in concordance with the remakes. It contained an entry for all the Pokémon in the Kanto Pokédex and their evolutionary relatives (at the time of publishing). The front cover has pictures of two of the final evolutions of the starter Pokémon (Charizard and Venusaur) that one can choose from in the remakes of the Generation I games.
