I wonder what happened to ours… I remember how excited I was at this toy. To me, it was one of the closest ways to become a Pokemon master like in the video games, haha! It let you look up the Pokemon’s information, create a favorites list, and make a “captured” list.
Yes, I vaguely remember you and I going outside with our Pokedexes and pretending to go on a journey and “capture” invisible Pokemon. (Little did we know that years later we’d be able to do that on our phones!)
Hey, our parents couldn’t complain that we were spending all our time inside playing video games! While it’d be amazing to have an upgraded Pokedex toy like this for all seven generations of Pokemon, it definitely would be redundant today with smartphones and Pokemon Go.
I think they do have an updated Pokedex toy, though. I’m not sure what region it’s for. Still, seeing the picture of this toy makes me feel nostalgic. I wish I knew where the toy was, but I’m sure it’s long gone by now. But I would love to try to turn it on and see if it still works.
Perhaps they’re in the attic somewhere with lots of the old figurines that we used to play with… It’d definitely be interesting to see what Pokemon we had saved on our favorites and captured lists. It’s probably full of the Eevee family, perhaps our go-to starters, and every other species we found cute.
Yeah, probably. Either that or we had every single Pokemon on there that we could add because we wanted to “catch ’em all.” I’m definitely going to see if I can track down one of these toys though. I would love to try it out again.
Do you remember this toy? Did you have it or another version of the Pokedex? Let us know in the comments below and we’ll chat!
