The Nintendo DS has come in different colors and themes over the years. But have you ever imagined it would look like a Pokédex? Believe it or not, someone made this possible.

The Nintendo DS Pokédex: What is a Pokédex anyway?

Before we dive deeper into how a Nintendo DS Pokédex was made possible, let’s first define what a Pokédex is. Fans of “Pokémon” are very familiar with this nifty little gadget, but non-Pokémon fans might just start scratching their heads.

The Pokédex is pretty much a portable device that stores all the information about creatures called Pokémon. Think of it as a “Pokémon” encyclopedia in the form of a red device with a hinged cover.

In the anime “Pokémon”, the device was created by Professor Oak to aid trainers of “Pokémon” in their quest to collect Pokémon.

Given how famous “Pokémon” is, it’s no surprise that fans have finally started to wish Pokédex was actually real. This wish has since been granted by many toy companies that have produced toy Pokédexes.
