Pokédex 3D (Japanese: ポケモン立体図鑑BW Pokémon 3D Picture Book BW) is a free Nintendo 3DS app available from the eShop. The app is an Unova Pokédex, featuring Pokémon from Pokémon Black and White Versions. Once downloaded, players are able to look through 16 different Pokémon; more can be unlocked through three different methods: QR codes, SpotPass, and trading. Players can scan QR codes, likely to be distributed online and at events, to unlock Pokémon, get three random Pokémon per day via SpotPass, or trade information with others via StreetPass.

The 3D aspect of the game allows players to view 3D renderings of each Pokémon, and rotate them 360 degrees. These renderings can be used with the 3DS's built-in camera and Augmented Reality to place Pokémon in real world environments. Each Pokémon has its own individual Augmented Reality card, a grid of black and white blocks, which becomes an image of a Poké Ball in the Augmented Reality.

The app has an advanced search feature, and players can add Pokémon to a favorites list. Basic Pokédex functions are also available, including Pokémon stats, height, and weight, as well as viewing movesets, egg groups, and evolution data, features not seen since Earl's Pokémon Academy in Pokémon Stadium 2.

All moves up to Generation V except for the seven secret moves, V-create, Freeze Shock, Ice Burn, Snarl, Secret Sword, Relic Song, and Techno Blast, as well, can be viewed, even if no Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex can learn them (such as Roar of Time, legitimately only had by Dialga, Darkrai, and Arceus), indicating an eventual update to include all 646 officially-released Pokémon may be on the way sometime during the 3DS's lifespan.



  • This game has the fastest announcement-to-release for any Pokémon game, being released within two weeks after it was first announced in all regions.
