The Pokémon Company has created a companion app for their Pokémon experience on Nintendo handhelds.

Before you get all cuckoo for Coco Puffs, recognize that this is nothing more than a reference tool for diehard Pokémon fans, of which there are many. Nintendo has not released Pokémon for the smartphone platform.

The Pokémon Company has delivered a Pokédex app for iOS. For $1.99, you'll be buying access to the Pokédex entries for the Pokémon in the Unova region. That includes pocket monsters #494-647, or, all the Pokémon from Pokémon Black and White 1 and 2.

If you want to have the reference goods on Pokémon from previous generations, you'll have to pony up some cash within the app itself. Here's where things get stupid expensive. The Kanto, Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh Pokédex entries will each cost you a whopping $5.99 a piece.

I told you it gets stupid expensive. Consider yourself a diehard Pokémon Trainer with a quest to have the Pokédex entry for every single creature in the franchise on your iOS device? It'll run you nearly $26.
