    The way I see how the pokedex works... Neither.

    Basically the pokedex doesn't have any information inside it, it starts empty. Upon sight and capture of a pokemon, it automatically researches all the data it can about it.
    So it deppends of the accuracy of the sources it is gathering the information from, which very likely are exaggerated or even made up and the poor machine can only jump to sometimes idiotic conclusions.

    Hmmm, I've gotta say Dunsparce...

    It's measured as 4'11" in height. I never imagined one to be that huge.

    ^^
    (And that was from Anime... which contradicts the only anime episode to feature Dunsparce, they were shown to be handsized "item" pets that were compared to be the size of Chihuahuas)

    Maybe it meant height when it stands on its tail...i.e length...

    I reckon that (as sanae kotiya said) after a trainer catches a pokémon [or in the animé's cases, sees a pokémon] the pokédex scans it and makes an entry about it on the fly based on information from the scan, which is why professors give pokédexes out to new trainers, to collate scanned data.

    This could explain why some pokémon like the gastly line showed no data, because the pokédex wasn't able to scan them.

    As some people tend to forget, the pokémon world is different from ours and can have different laws of nature. Also we have no other sources to disprove the things the pokédex tells other than our own world (which is no good source), thus there's nothing we can do but to just believe what the pokédex tells us (unless of course, the pokédex contradicts itself or movesets/abilites).

    Thus I voted that all info in it is true. You simply can't disprove its statements.

    Unless they are flat out contradictory, like Ho-Oh having wings of all seven (six... whatever) colors of the rainbow. That's a lie, pure and simple, and you have the picture right there to confirm it.

    I think instead of a quote, I might just start listing the number of people whose signatures contain quotes by me. My goal is to be in ALL OF THEM.

    But aren't rainbow wings supposed to glow in 7 different colours? Just keep a cd in a light, you'll see all 7 colours eventually.

    But sprites are one of the sources you could use to point out contradictions in the pokédex.

    Exactly what I was going to say! And that measurement is "height," meaning that it has to be huge! By my estimate, Dunsparce should be about 30 feet long.
