PokÚmon X & PokÚmon Y: The Official Kalos Region PokÚdex & Postgame Adventure Guide is coming Wednesday, January 22, 2014. It is 736 pages, and likely another pocket-sized book, as now seems to be the norm for any 3DS guide.

ISBN-10: 0804162573
ISBN-13: 978-0804162579

Vol. 3 (PokÚmon X & PokÚmon Y: The Official National PokÚdex) will follow in the spring.

Unless it has egg moves, I don't care.

That's dumb. Why such a huge gap? Most people already have the game beaten. Not many people planned on buying the guide at launch...even less actually did due to the delay. Now, we have January and Spring for the others. That's a fail. Lol. I don't see too many people buying these. I always buy the Pokemon guides and even I passed on the first one due to the delay. Now I have to wait a couple moths for the next one. Heck, based on the past, the next main game could already be announced by the time we get the third guide. Lol.

THREE? That's a new one, isn't it? And yeah, why such a huge gap?

*Groan* This means it'll be another six months before we get the guide that actually matters, the one with the National Dex and therefore the list of Egg moves for every Pokemon in the game.

It's not new. Black & White had three guides, as well: the walkthrough, the Unova PokÚdex and the National PokÚdex (some previous generations also had Pocket PokÚdexes as supplements, but they didn't add any new information). Releasing three smaller guides gets the information out faster, rather than waiting until everything can be compiled.

The Japanese equivalents come out in November and December. You'll have your egg moves in a couple months.
