You Can Now Play Pokémon On a Pokédex Thanks To Crafty Fan

A crafty Pokémon fan has built a Pokédex version of the Nintendo DS console, essentially allowing fans to play Pokémon on a real-life Pokédex. As one of the biggest franchises in the world, Pokémon has inspired countless creative players, leading to unique and impressive creations ranging from fan art to pocket monster-inspired tech. Other recent endeavors from the community have even included a card-based Pokémon game inspired by Inscryption.

The Pokédex is an iconic part of the Pokémon franchise. It has been seen in many different forms over the years, from Professor Oak’s first-ever digital encyclopedia to the modern RotomDex. Featuring in the manga, anime, and games, the Pokédex has been both a source of lore and a measure of progress; when players’ goal is to catch ’em all, the Pokédex provides an invaluable list of which Pokémon the player has caught so far. Alongside a Starter and a handful of Poké Balls, receiving a Pokédex is one of the marks of a new Trainer setting out on their journey. For something so simple, the Pokédex has had a surprising amount of controversy attached to it in recent times, mostly stemming from some disappointing implementations of Pokémon‘s National Dex.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Reddit user and Pokémon fan tomvdcr has now created an impressive real-life variant of the Pokédex, which allows fans to play the games on the iconic device. Built using a Nintendo DS Lite, the Pokédex shell comes from an old Jakks Pokédex toy, a piece of merchandise that accompanied the release of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. Through a careful reshaping of the components involved and some skillful soldering, tomvdcr was able to transplant the DS innards to the Pokédex shell. This allowed them to create a fully-functional version of the game console inside the old Pokédex toy casing, which is charged via USB-C rather than Nintendo’s own proprietary charger. The final product is a console with a unique Pokémon twist. At the time of writing, the Redditor is currently accepting commissions for those hoping to acquire their own Pokédex, though it’s likely commissions won’t stay open for long judging by the console’s popularity.

Some Redditors have pointed out that the Pokédex game console concept is so simple that it is a wonder that Nintendo itself did not release a similar version of the DS, perhaps to celebrate the launch of one of the DS Pokémon games. Then again, should the idea have come up at Nintendo, the issues of costs and the need for a specialized production line may have played a part in its rejection. Fortunately, the boundless creativity of Pokémon fans is more than capable of coming up with projects like this and seeing them through to completion.

This custom Pokédex console is proof that Nintendo may very well have missed a trick when it comes to Pokémon consoles and merchandise. Lots of fans have imagined their own versions of Nintendo consoles that haven’t seen a release, despite Nintendo often launching special edition versions of its hardware over the years. tomvdcr’s amazing build has found no small amount of support, proving that many fans would love to get their hands on an official version. Its popularity shows that the unique and somewhat nostalgic feel of a Pokédex in a fan’s hands is a powerful force, especially when so cleverly combined with the games that inspired it.
