An AI Powered Pokédex That Identifies Pokemon Through Your Phone's Camera

March 8, 2018


This is a short video demonstration of DeepDex, an artificial intelligence powered Pokédex for Android phones (links to download page) that uses neural networks to identify a Pokémon through your device's camera. In the creator's own words while I hit up a bathroom stall for a Squirtle and a Snorlax:

Whether you spot a Pokémon on TV or in real life [i.e. stuffed animal, toy, sticker, etc), DeepDex will tell you which it is in an instant! It accomplishes this with the power of AI and neural networks, all running on your phone!

Expect predictions to get better overtime and new generations to be added.

What a time to be alive. One day I'm Googling 'the Pokemon that looks like a sad drooling blueberry wearing a flower hat' (Gloom) and the next I've got an artificial intelligence Pokédex that will just tell me what it is if I take a picture of it. Exciting times. "You tried your penis didn't you?" From multiple angles! (Diglett, Medicham and Sudowoodo)

Thanks DeepDex, I've already been artificial intelligence Pokédexing for thirty minutes with no end in sight.

    Why did they put Pokédex's original voice? That would make ir even better.

    But it can only actually identify hot dogs.

    Hot dog!

    Not hot dog!

    In all seriousness though, has anyone downloaded it?

    I think it's fake...

    Even as a non-fan of Pokemon I can appreciate how cool this app is. I'd try it out if I didn't have this dang iPhone. :-/

  • GeneralDisorder

    iPhone? Oh my... I'm sorry to hear that.

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    not to brag, but i got onix, rayquaza, and exeggcutor (alolan form) when i scanned mine

    this isn't a contest

    I really need to get a faraday cage with the black out lining for my phone.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Buy a used microwave. Spray paint the window/door. Cut the cord. Maybe also buy some copper mesh to coat the inside.

  • The_Wretched

    It'll be hard to carry around.

  • GeneralDisorder

    You know, women tell me that about my gigantic penis but it's not so bad.

    SOAD's Cigaro covers that issue.
