Wow, I thought the AR on the 3DS was trickable.

    Seriously guys, download Pokedex 3D, and try using the AR feature on this page

    http://nintendo3dsblog.com/every-single-qr-code-for-pokedex-3d

    It's a freaking computer screen, but yet the damn thing thinks it's real.

    Or am I just late to this party again?

    Technology....limited only by mankind.

    1 - You're just relizing this? People have posted that image with all those hundreds of times.
    2 - Why isn't this in the 3DS section?
    3 - It's a form of QR code, it's just a image. The 3DS displaying it is just a computer screen too.

    Can't really call this a QR code in the sense it's like the Mii QR codes as it's really not.

    There's no checksum bytes or error correction on these, it's just binary data displayed in a Matrix format. It's still a Quick Response code, but it's Nintendo's own. It doesn't even hold any data except a reference number which is looked up by the pokedex software which dissplay's the referenced pokemon, It's sooooo much easier to make an app to cycle through them all though.

    This thread isn't really going to go anywhere from here........ i would suggest closing/locking until the pokedex has something new to do with the QR codes.

    You realize the only difference between printing that out and having it on the screen is that one is physical, right? You can see them through the camera, cameras can't differentiate between a screen, nor would it be worth it to. This is old, old, old, common sense news.

    A guy on GameFAQs made a little application for displaying the image based on the selected pokemon, for easier searches.

    Why wouldn't you be able to scan a Pokedex QR code off a computer screen? You can scan normal QR codes off a computer screen with your smartphone. Try it sometime. It's just simple image recognition software coupled with the camera. I work at a football stadium, and we can scan customers' tickets off their smartphones with our ticket scanners.

    Besides, except for a few legendary Pokemon, scanning the code doesn't give you the Pokemon, just the sticker (although it does increase the likelihood the Pokemon will come up on SpotPass), so it's not like you can just scan everything and have your Pokedex complete in 5 minutes. And, the Pokedex 3D is a free app, and not even a proper "game" at that, so it simply isn't worth Nintendo's time, effort, and money to prevent "abuses" that don't really accomplish anything.

    Off-topic, the spell-checker in my version of Firefox recognizes Pokemon, but not Pokedex :P

    ...it would be stupid if it couldn't recognize it off the screen.
    it's an image, no matter where it's displayed, as long as it's visible and clear, it'll be read.
