This new game is a free free FREE 3DSWare download from the eShop when it goes live next week! It is actually more of an application, a 3D Unova Region Pokedex application to be exact. It's a pretty useful tool because it shows you how to evolve any pokemon, like by levels and stones or whatever, as well as base stats and moves they can learn at certain levels. I am not sure if the application shows you where to catch the monsters, but hopefully it does. The monsters will be displayed in full animated 3D, and it looks like you can choose different wallpapers for your selected monster too.
You don't get all the monsters at first though, the game will support both Streetpass and Spotpass modes. You begin with 16 seemingly random entries, and when you Streetpass someone with different entries you will share them with each other. Spotpass will also let you get three new entries a day, I'm not sure how many you will be allowed to receive through the Streetpass mode, or through the added ability to scan QR codes for entries. I think I will create a gallery or something filled with Pokemon QR Codes! There is also an Augmented Reality mode to let you take photos of the monsters! Visit the Pokemon Gallery for more pictures!
