This book gives all the info needed from generation 1-6 of the games along with the Pokemon anime. Alex is on her second book as she read the other so much that the pages were falling out, I gave on scotch taping them back in. She loves to draw and uses it as a guide for her drawings as well as for info on the Pokemon within the games and the anime. Its a fun book that gives a lot of information that maybe isn’t known. It is a must for all Pokemon addicts!


I thought she made a good pick given how ‘Pokemon Go’ is popular…then again I am rather old and out of touch and it may no longer be popular…..
