Siri is Now a Pokédex


It seems that everyone’s favourite iPhone assistance Siri has been upgraded as it can now answer questions about 649 Pokémon (not including the Pokémon X and Y critters just yet). It can now tell you any Pokémon’s type, abilities and more.

Why thank you Siri.

The Wolfram Alpha team (think of them like the iOS’s engines sources) added the Pokémon to Siri’s features after they noticed the rise in Pokémon related searches saying:

“Pokémon are an ideal subject for a computable knowledge engine. They have a set of well-defined characteristics with lots of numbers to which we can apply our analytic capabilities.”

Will you be using the new feature? Try asking a question now and let us know what you think of it!
