If you live in Japan, you're probably not reading this article right now, but are instead busy browsing through your new Pokedex for iOS app that was just released on the Japanese App Store.

As of right now, the app is only available in the Far East and there has been no announcement of an American release yet. But that should change at some point.

While Pikachu might not be the cultural force that he once was in the States, it's been established for quite a while now that Pokemon is just as capable of being a sensation over here as it is in Japan.

An official app would be nice too for stateside Pokemon fans, eliminating the need to have to wade through fan-created apps of varying quality and completeness. If you want to try and see for yourself what might be in store, or if you can read Japanese, head over to the app’s official page and see what you can find.
