Use Your iPhone and Siri As a Pokédex

on October 20, 2013 1:52 PM

Are you a fan of Pokémon and an own of an iPhone? It just so happens that Siri uses Wolfram Alpha, a computational knowledge engine, to help answer all your Pokémon questions. It works by allowing the software to pull specific answers to specific questions without providing you a list of Googled websites to comb through; and it just just so happens that Wolfram Alpha added a massive amount of Pokémon facts to its database.

Simply activate Siri by giving it a Pokémon command like, “Search Pikachu,” or “What type of Pokémon is Pikachu?” as a result Siri will audibly reply, “The answer is electric.” But it doesn’t stop there, Siri and Wolfram can also find facts like a specific Pokémon’s weight and footprint appearance.

Unfortunately, Wolfram Alpha currently only has data for the first five generations of Pokémon, but generation six, the X & Y generation, will most likely be added soon.
