Want a Pokémon game for your shiny new Nintendo 3DS? Well, all Nintendo wants you to have right now is Pokédex 3D. It's kind of half way there.
Pokédex 3D is a free app available from the 3DS' upcoming e-Shop. Its purpose? To display information on the series' many breeds of monsters, just like the in-game Pokédex device.
All of the new critters from the latest DS games, Pokémon Black and White, are included. Pokémon are rendered in full 3D - and also in eye-tricking actual 3D, since it's the 3DS.
Players initially get 16 Pokémon to view and read up on. More are available each day through SpotPass (up to three a day), scanning QR codes or via trading with friends (presumably through StreetPass).
It's the first time Pokémon have been seen dressed in full 3D sprites on a handheld. Or at all, if you ignore the largely forgettable Stadium and Collosseum home console spin-offs.
Nintendo's long-awaited 3DS e-Shop launches in Europe on 7th June.
