Pokémon fans: Use Siri to turn your iPhone into a Real-Life Pokédex

Wolfram Alpha today announced that it added information about 649 Pokémon to its database, which can be queried by users. If you’re a Pokémon fan, you’ll be happy to know that this information is accessible via Siri as well, so your iOS device is now also a real-life Pokédex.

For those who aren’t aware, a Pokédex, from Wikipedia, is “an electronic device designed to catalog and provide information regarding the various species of Pokémon.”

To use Siri as a Pokédex, activate Siri by long pressing the home button, and ask it to “Search Wolfram for <pokémon name>.” Siri will then give you a bunch of information about the pokémon, including its image, history, gender, abilities, evolution and a lot more.


Tell us what you think of the feature in the comments below.
