The Complete Pokémon Pocket Guide (ISBN 1421523256 and ISBN 1421523264) is a guide published by VIZ Media. It contains information on all 491 Pokémon revealed to date (excluding Shaymin and Arceus as they had not yet been officially revealed by Nintendo), which, however, are included as a poster in re-print. Each Pokémon's page has an illustration, a description, a list of some of the moves it may possess, special abilities, and any evolutions that it may have. It is split into two volumes: volume one covers the first 245 Pokémon (Bulbasaur to Suicune) and the rest are in volume two (Larvitar to Darkrai). Volume 1 is 248 pages in length, and Volume 2 is 251 pages in length.

Trivia

  • There is information in this book not seen in other sources, such as saying Infernape's flames cannot be extinguished as long as it is alive.
  • Remoraid's page features artwork of Mantine as one of the pictures for Remoraid.
  • The cover of both books read From Abra to Zubat, however, Abomasnow comes before Abra alphabetically.
