    It also requires iOS 6 which means pirates can't get it till there is a jailbreak for iOS 6.

    Not for A5 Devices. and it's also not untethered, so It's not worth calling it jailbroken yet.

    Being tethered isn't much of an issue for me anyways, wouldn't even pirate this though.

    Look at the Flag...
    Ridiculously expensive, if at least the app+unova dex was free just like on 3DS, but no (actually rovio has the same "cash cow" policy on IOS vs android (angry birds)).

    And people said Nintendo did not know how achievements, online games and "freemium" worked.....

    Wait pokemon as a manifestation of the achievement whoring mentality..... to the psychology laboratory.

    I don't see the use of a real fake pokédex. It's not a game, just statistics and info on characters in a game.
    Could someone explain the benefit of this app to me?

    Any more of such things and I will probably be banned- apparent timewasters/idiot tax though they may be (granted that can be applied to an awful lot) I can not deny that is a brilliant stroke of marketing.

    It's handy to have instead of having to look things up on Serebii every time you want to see what abilities a pokemon can have. Or base stats. Or when it will finally evolve/learn a better move. 26 bucks is overpriced though.

    Wait, do you have to actually get them day by day in Pokedex 3D Pro like the free one? That would be kinda ridiculous after you paid that much for it...

    Yeah I remember reading this. Then again, I'm sure if it were a REAL pokadex, it would cost a whole lot more...
