The Rotom Pokédex is a peripheral used in the Alola region, and is an advanced version of the Pokédex. In Pokémon Sun and Moon, the player receives this Pokédex from Professor Kukui, making the player one of the few people in Alola to possess this device. It is inhabited by Rotom, giving this Pokémon a platform to communicate with the player. The Rotom Pokédex is not solely a Pokédex, however, and features a variety of functions.
The Rotom Pokédex's main function is to serve as a database for Pokémon, both seen and caught. On each page's main screen it will display the classification, height, weight and description of the Pokémon, as well as additional pages for its location, cry and animations. When a Pokémon is registered to the Pokédex, it may indicate that it is part of an evolutionary line or part of a pair, which is marked by a white Poké Ball icon.
While the map is usually a separate Key Item in previous Pokémon games, it becomes incorporated into the Rotom Pokédex. The map shows the player's current location, as well as the location of the next destination. It can also give advice on where to go next based on the player's conversations with others.
The QR Scanner allows the player to see the information of a Pokémon by scanning certain QR Codes. By scanning a QR Code, it will register Pokémon to the Pokédex, as well as display their habitat on the map if the Pokémon is yet to be caught. QR Codes can also be shared with other players.
The Poké Finder is a feature that allows the player to take pictures of Pokémon in their natural habitat. Poké Finder photo spots are indicated on the map by a camera icon, and once the feature is initiated in these spots, it will allow the player to take photos. These pictures will be evaluated, and as better pictures are taken over time, more features become available, such as the ability to zoom in.
