I love this book so much! I read this book because I love pokemon so much! When I read it I learned so much more than I could learn from the show or the video games. It made me want to read more and never put it down till I read every single word of pokemon information. I would recommend this book to pokemon fans or people that just want to learn more about pokemon. So if you like suprises, intristing facts, and some helpful hints about the video game, read this book! But no one will love it as much as I did!

okay so I just can't stop reviewing this great the front their is a lot of advice on:the poke-balls the capture the battle basics why to battle the face off choosing the best pokemon for the job and there is a note which says:healh and energy do not automatically return to the pokemon just because you capture'll have to take care of your poke freind before it can fight for you.oh how could I forget in the book the pokemon have color's to represent their element like:fire is red poison is purple and ground is for example charizard would be red.gravler would be brown.and only a two elemantel pokemon like bulbasaur would have green (for grass) and purple (for poison).

well here is some more.I think Maria s. barbo is a really great writer.on the sides of the front cover you will see pokemon but on the south west corner you will see snorlax sleeping on a rectangle with the word scholastic so now you know that this book is the top ten ways you will find all the cures for pokemon all the badges for pokemon to obey you and last and most important all the vitamins that pokemon need.there's a checklist that has all 150 pokemon.
