Pokémon Top 10 Handbook
ISBN: 0-439-89047-0
Published: 2007[1]

Author: Tracey West

The Pokémon Top 10 Handbook is a book by Tracey West. It contains a list of the "top ten" things in the Pokémon world based on the anime, which are grouped into 22 categories. It does not include any content from the Sinnoh, Unova or Kalos regions, as it was published while the United States was still in Pokémon's third generation. At the end of the book, it gives readers a chance to make their own top 10 list.

The book features the franchise mascot, Pikachu, on the front cover and legendary duo Kyogre and Groudon on the back.


The hottest Fire-types. The most sizzling Electric-types. The smartest Pokémon experts. The baddest battles. And that's just the beginning.
