Nintendo's Pokédex iOS app costs £17.45 to complete

Will Pokémon encyclopaedia's pricing lead to Tepig sales?

Nintendo's Pokédex app for iOS devices is now available in the UK - but users will have to pay a total of £18.49 to list every Pokémon breed.

The app initially costs £1.49 and lists the 153 new varieties in recent games Pokémon Black and White. These are the same information and 3D models once freely available on 3DS, which had its own Pokédex app (now replaced with a paid-for alternative).

It then costs £3.99 to add each of the four previous generations: Kanto monsters from Red/Blue/Yellow, Johto breeds from Gold/Silver/Crystal, Hoenn types from Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald and Sinnoh species from Diamond/Pearl/Platinum.

Pokémon add-on packs are bought from the app's own shop. We couldn't see any indication of these prices until we'd downloaded the app.

Pokédex for iOS was previously only available in Japan. It's Nintendo's first western iOS release, developed by internal team The Pokémon Company.
