PokéNav Plus

A Pokémon Navigator Plus, more often referred to as PokéNav Plus (Japanese: ポケモンマルチナビ Pokémon Multi-Navi), is an electronic device found in Hoenn and an enhanced version of the PokéNav from Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. It was produced by the Devon Corporation under the orders of Mr. Stone. In Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the PokéNav Plus is in the possession of the player and is found on the touch screen. It was introduced in Generation VI. Similar devices are the Pokégear, the Pokétch, the C-Gear, and the Holo Caster.



The AreaNav (Japanese: マップナビ Map-Navi) is an application for the PokéNav Plus that combines the Map and Trainer's Eyes functions of the original PokéNav along with several other useful features. This is the only app the player starts out with.


The Places tab shows Hoenn's basic Town Map. All locations have brief text descriptions and settlements that the player has visited show a picture of the area and a list of notable facilities.


The Pokémon tab shows the Pokémon Distribution of locations in Hoenn. These views of areas are often identical to the DexNav's catching progress view, showing a summary of the Pokémon in a given location that have been owned. The only circumstance in which it differs is if the selected location has multiple areas (such as different rooms of a cave). Whereas the DexNav will display separate views for each of these areas, the AreaNav's Pokémon view condenses all of the areas into one view summarizing the whole location.


The Trainers tab provides Trainer's Eye functionality similar to the original PokéNav's.


The Bases tab tracks Secret Bases owned by the player and others the player interacts with. It indicates which route or area has bases that are not yet visited by the player and provides the name of each base's owner. It will also indicate the base that belongs to the player.


The Berry tab keeps track of Berry Trees in Hoenn. It keeps track of what Berries were planted where and how long they've been growing.

Obtained from Brendan/May on Route 101 after receiving the Pokédex. The DexNav (Japanese: ずかんナビ Dex-Navi) allows the player to see how many Pokémon they've collected in an area and to search for specific Pokémon they've already owned. It also allows the player to add overworld Pokémon they encounter to the Pokédex and provides information about hidden Pokémon.


Obtained from Wally before he leaves Petalburg Gym after helping him catch a Pokémon. The PlayNav (Japanese: プレイナビ Play-Navi) is an application for the PokéNav Plus that includes the bottom-screen functionality from Pokémon X and Y. This includes the Player Search System, Pokémon Amie, and Super Training.


Obtained from Mr. Stone at the Devon Corporation after getting the Devon Parts back from the Team MagmaOR/AquaAS grunt. BuzzNav (Japanese: テレビナビ TV-Navi) is an application for the PokéNav Plus that displays news reports from Mauville TV about the player's exploits in the game. It also includes StreetPass functionality that allows the player to receive news, Secret Bases, Mirage spots, and other data from players they pass by either in the real world or on the Player Search System.


  • The design of the PokéNav Plus appears to be based on the Game Boy Advance SP, similarly to how the Pokédex in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire appears to be based on the original Game Boy Advance. This is likely a reference to the original Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire debuting on the Game Boy Advance and also being playable on the later SP model.
