The Pokedex has been the greatest feat of reverse-engineering that the scientists and inventors of Terrene have accomplished thus far; even so, the Pokedexes of Terrene fall a bit short of the Pokedexes (and other similar devices) of regions from the Suffering Universe. The design is simple; it looks like a somewhat thinner first-generation game boy with a slightly larger screen. The basic, un-upgraded Pokedex is a simple database of all non-legendary Pokemon, and it contains essentially all the information that Serebii.net has on each Pokemon (excluding the information that doesn't pertain to our roleplay, such as capture rate, egg steps, EV, and so on). It does not have a camera or scanning capabilities, and thus it cannot be used to determine which specific ability or moves a specific Pokemon has; nor does it have a speaker. The Pokedex has numerous upgrades, however, and as such may be upgraded to have scanning capabilities and much more.
◒ berry tree locator
Pokedex is installed with a simple radar that will alert the user if there are any nearby berry trees. It isn't entirely accurate and sometimes will fail to detect a nearby berry tree, but for an avid berry hunter, it is better than nothing! Whenever this is used, your character will have a 50% chance of finding some berry trees. This will be rolled by a moderator. The mod will also determine what kinds of berries there are and how many can be picked. This can be used once per adventure thread, and it doesn't overlap with the foraging skill, so if you have a berry tree locator you can technically search for berries twice (once with the skill, once with the locator).
◒ research scanner
A camera is installed onto the back of the Pokedex, which can be used to scan Pokemon. When it scans the Pokemon, it provides specific details on it: its gender, its ability, its known moves, its height and weight. It also takes a picture. This information is compiled into a small file that the user can choose to save or delete. These files can be transferred from one Pokedex to another via a small cable.
◒ tm/hm emitter
A small disc drive is installed inside the top of the Pokedex that the technical or hidden machine can slide into. When the tm/hm disc is inserted, the Pokedex will state what the name of the move is. When activated, the Pokedex emits the information on the disc in the form of a of non-visible energy wave, which gives the nearest capable Pokemon the basic knowledge of how to use whatever move is recorded on the machine.
