    Most of it is true. Measures, attacks, types, etc etc.

    The entries... "with some exaggarations" is an understatement.


    A lone detective takes it upon himself to solve the murder of a young woman, willingly diving into the dangerous web of conspiracies weaved by the feuding mafia families. But after the truth is uncovered, will that city of sin be the same ever again?

    I call BS on a majority of it, but there are parts that ring true.

    All of the above.
    Besides, the 'Dex is a wank piece of shit which keeps you from accesing certain places until you've completed the regional version.

    Some entries are exaggerated (like Tentacruel having 80 tentacles). But then again, there may be some truth into them (like the entries of Cubone and Marowak).

    I wish some of the exaggerations were true. If so, I could have a lot of fun with psychic pokemon influencing other people's emotions...

    The Pokedex entries are awsome, even if they are a bit out there. Really, who thinks that stuff up?

    The Pokedex exaggerates too much, especially with Arcanine's speed, Rattatta's teeth, and so on... that pic/poster Pokemon Science comes to mind.

    I voted for: Most info is false, but with some grains of truth.

    But I would say a good bit of the info is true but with so MAJOR exaggerations that I more or less have to say "most info false, some grains of truth"

    I would say maybe some of them are true like Gardevoir saving it's trainer if it senses they are in danger or an Psychic Pokemon able to connect by minds with their trainer or Alakazam being real smart.

    But it's mostly just speculation, in the anime the pokedex always goes "Genger, no details known, Haunter, no details known much about this Pokemon" which makes those professors really stupid. How is that an Orange Island Champion, A Ghost Gym Leader, an Elite Four member etc all have a Genger yet there is no details known. I guess they never got to study it but those trainers had to start somewhere and I am sure they let a professor research it for a bit.
