The iPhone is Now a Pokédex ➝

Mike Wehner writing for TUAW:

The massive information engine Wolfram Alpha just added a whopping 649 Pokémon to its database. For fans of the games, that fact is pretty cool all on its own, but if you happen to own an iPhone or an iPad with Siri, it’s even more awesome. You see, thanks to Siri’s ability to search Wolfram Alpha for information, your iDevice is now as close to a real-life Pokédex as you’ll probably ever have.

I was a huge fan of Pokémon when I was younger and still dip my toes into the newer games on occasion. I don’t know how useful this actually is, but it is very cool.
