It provides a very indepth look at all Pokémon, moves and everything as well as 3D modes, the Pokémon Challenge quiz (that has trillions of combinations) and the AR Viewer. It is priced accordingly to strategy guides, and is cheaper than its paper National Pokédex counterpart

Anyone who's buying this is buying it for the 3D models. And I will gladly pay $15 for those not only because I'm a fan, but because the first app was free and Nintendo could have charged 3-4 dollars for that. But they didn't because they knew a free App would reach more hands--hands that, if they enjoyed the free App, might possibly want to buy the paid App. In effect, I consider myself paying them back for the first app.

Every time someone mentions Pokemon using full 3DS models for the mainline games, someone else will say how time consuming and expensive it would be to make all the models and fully animate them. Well, I think it's quite possible that they're using this game to basically fund that process, since now they've got a full stable of 3D models ready to be animated.
