Would you want to be able to use the pokedex in battle?

Sort of like the anime.It wouldn't give you a description until you catch it, but maybe if you forget what a pokemon's type is you can check and it could include a weakness and resistance typing chart etc.

I think it would be convenient because I sometimes have to take the time to check these things online anyhow it would be a nice touch if I could do it in-game.

Froakie the Bubble Frog Pokemon. Many trainers in the Kalos region consider Froakie to be a rare delicacy on par with Basculin. Thus, many trainers prefer to eat it rather than raise it. Also, searching its name in google gives you lots of NSFW "fanart".

Chespin the Shiny Nut Pokemon. When angered by its trainer, it uses it sharp incisors to nibble on its trainer's genitals. It is also cuter than Oshawott.

Fennekin the Fox Pokemon. This Pokemon is a shining beacon of hope to trainers as it currently holds limitless potential of not evolving into a Fire\Fighting type. Other than that, it has nothing going for it and would likely rot in the deepest parts your PC due to the return of Torchic.

Short answer: No.

Long answer: Yes, if it's a Wild Battle and we use the Pokédex to see a page similar to your Pokémon Pages. You know, like the moves, stats and abilities. For trainer battles, maybe we could use it just to see their moves.

I agree, but the word is 'practical'. Though I do understand the error, phonetically your error may seem correct with certain accents.

Although it's not as bad as Fennekin having over 80% of its mass in its head.

Heck, why not just give us the whole description from the get-go like Pokedex 3D Pro and simply have markers showing use whether we caught it or not. Why make us work for those horribly exaggerated entries?
