The Nintendo DS has come in different colors and themes over the years. But have you ever imagined it would look like a PokÃ©dex? Believe it or not, someone made this possible.
A known Game Boy modder modified a PokÃ©dex toy in a Nintendo DS and the end result is actually fully functional! The PokÃ©dex and Nintendo DS hybrid was posted on the modder’s Instagram account as proof.
The Nintendo DS PokÃ©dex: What is a PokÃ©dex anyway?
Before we dive deeper into how a Nintendo DS PokÃ©dex was made possible, let’s first define what a PokÃ©dex is. Fans of “PokÃ©mon” are very familiar with this nifty little gadget, but non-PokÃ©mon fans might just start scratching their heads.
The PokÃ©dex is pretty much a portable device that stores all the information about creatures called PokÃ©mon. Think of it as a “PokÃ©mon” encyclopedia in the form of a red device with a hinged cover.
In the anime “PokÃ©mon”, the device was created by Professor Oak to aid trainers of “PokÃ©mon” in their quest to collect PokÃ©mon.
Given how famous âPokÃ©monâ is, it’s no surprise that fans have finally started to wish PokÃ©dex was actually real. This wish has since been granted by many toy companies that have produced toy PokÃ©dexes.
