Updated in 2015, the Pokemon Deluxe Essential Handbook contains the stats and must-know facts about 700 Pokemon. This includes the originals, like Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Pikachu. I always picked Squirtle because he was the coolest Pokemon ever, in my opinion.
Sing with me! “Pokemon! Gotta draw em’ all!” Okay, the words there were changed, but same tune with a different concept. This book is for artsy Pokemon lovers; ones who want to know how to draw all of their favorites.
I am diggin’ this Pokemon sticker book! No doubt a must-have for Pokemon masters everywhere, this book is packed with over 700 stickers. Each Pokemon is from either the Kanto or Kalos collections. Includes stickers of Poke’ Balls and Mega-stones.
With over 480 entries, the Pokemon Ultimate Handbook goes through all of the regions up until 2008. There are pages upon pages of Pokemon facts. The great thing about this book and the other guides featured here is the uniqueness of each book. You never know what you will learn.
I love the artsy concept of the Pokemon Origami book! There are 80 full-color pages—48 of them are comprehensive, easy-to-follow instructions, but the rest are colorful sheets of paper to fold 10 Pokemon characters, like Vulpix, Pikachu, and Bulbasaur.
Also managing a place among the best Pokemon books of 2017 – Pokémon XY, Vol. 1 by Hidenori Kusaka.
This manga is action-packed and all about…you guessed it, Pokemon. X and Y video game versions, of course. The pages are jammed with colorful pictures, all well-drawn, detailed, and vivid with bold outlines. This is a volume one, paperback edition.
Pocket Comics is a two-in-one Pokemon book that is small enough to be a tote-around, take-anywhere read. The characters here are jokesters in the Pokemon world, so this book is packed with funny pictures, random knowledge, and, of course, jokes.
The Kalos Activity Book is all about the 2013 region, complete with facts, information, and stats on must-know Pokemon. There are also games, like mazes and word scrambles, and fun puzzles, info on Pokemon trainers, and heaps more cool stuff.
