What is the first Pokemon game where you can access the pokedex during battles?



  • https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9dex says absolutely nothing at what times you access the pokedex. It is a point of unbelieveable difference from the anime- nearly in every battle that Ash has he accesses the pokedex. You can't do it Pokemon Emerald. What was the first pokemon game where you could access the pokedex?



  • No one from the main series, as far as I remember. Because that's not how the games work. You have to encounter or fight the Pokemon to receive information about it (unless you received it by gift/trade). There's no way to access the Pokedex while battling, also because there's no option in the menu, you can only: fight, change Pokemon, use an item or flee.

    The closest one could be Pokemon Legends: Arceus, that allows you to check the Pokedex while approaching the Pokemon. Then you can decide to catch it or throw a Pokeball and start a battle.
