Pokémon Visual Guide (ISBN 9780756644307) is a visual guide to the Pokémon anime covering all of the story arcs from the original series to Diamond & Pearl. It was published by BradyGames in 2008.
The book contains detailed maps of the different regions that appear in the anime, character profiles of both human characters (such as Ash and Dawn) and legendary Pokémon, synopses of important events in the anime, and lists of different Pokémon by region. Each of these features are supplemented by full-color, often large, pictures and artwork.
The dust jacket has many different Pokémon featured on it, prominently from Generation IV, while the inside hard cover is a large image of Pikachu which spans both the front and back covers.

- On Page 10, in the section "Ash's Pokémon", the book says that Ash caught a Pidgey and that it stayed with him until it eventually evolved into a Pidgeot. This is incorrect, as Ash caught Pidgeotto in its evolved state, not as a Pidgey. He did attempt to catch a Pidgey in Pokémon - I Choose You!, but he was unsuccessful. This section also leaves out Primeape, Muk, and Lapras.
- On Page 41, Poliwhirl is incorrectly labeled as "Lombre". That page also does not mention Poliwhirl's evolution into Politoed, and also calls Vileplume "Vile Plume".
- On page 102, it is said Wattson's Magneton uses Shock Cannon, but it is actually Zap Cannon.
- Another error can be seen on page 103, which Norman's Vigoroth actually uses Slash instead of Scratch.
- Kyle is mistaken for Kenny on pages 100 and 125.
- On Page 157, Porygon-Z is incorrectly depicted with a picture of Porygon2.
- On the list of Dawn's Pokémon, it does not include Buizel.
- On page 157, Piplup is incorrectly given a Normal-type background to its picture; the bar saying "Water" is also colored gray to suggest that it is a Normal-type.
