...use, let's say the pokedex for a turn to scan an opposing pokemon that will tell you it's nature, characteristic, ability, stats, type, and weaknesses? And if it was for wild Pokemon only so it couldn't be used against trainers and it doesn't tell you the movepool.

Was going to say yes, but then you said ONLY for wild Pokemon and decided NO.

instead of that id prefer if upon meeting a pokemon we havent seen before, our pokedex pops up and we get that cool dex anaysis like in the first season of the anime....

After I disable it with a sleep move, yes.

That would make the Pokedex a hell of a lot more important to the game than a secondary flavor text database. I mean sure it's still used by a lot of gamers, but the Pokedex (and completing it) has never really felt all that integrated into gameplay other than "catch stuff and talk to the prof for free crap," which was less about actually using the 'dex and more about just hitting numbered checkpoints.

Yes, because all JRPGs should have a "scan" type of ability, and the Pokedex pretty much screams it, yet they haven't bothered to give it an in-battle use, which makes far less sense than having a Pokemon that looks like Ice Cream.

What if ice cream looks like Vanilluxe?
