Ratings and Reviews
A good start
I got this the day it was announced and decided to test it out. I had a number of sun and moon cards that I started to scan. One thing I noticed was that it may be hard to scan the cards on certain backgrounds, but once you find a good background, it’s easy from there.
I’m not sure how the cards are scanned but it works well. I mainly had forbidden light cards and when scanning magnemite, it gave me the ultra prism version which is a different type (steel not electric) when I said it wasn’t my card, I was given options of cards it likely was. Different times I scanned I was given different lists (one time the real version was the only option I got and other times it wasn’t.) likely this can be based on lighting and the angle it was scanned at.
I do have two problems though. Though you can go into the separate categories to see what cards you have in that collection, there isn’t a place that just shows all the cards you have. Another is that it’s only the cards released since their sun and moon sets, but that might just be as a start and older card sets will be added in the future.
Not Great for Collectors
I’ve been collecting Pokémon cards since 2017. I downloaded this app because I thought it was going to have everything. When I downloaded it at the time, it was just Sun & Moon. But they’ve added support for X&Y and of course Sword & Shield. I used Pokéllector to track my cards before and now I still have to keep it on standby because this app only includes everything X&Y and above and nothing else. They do have the promos but they never seem to update them. There’s also some gaps in the Sun & Moon promo lists. So it’s incomplete.
Not to mention bugs and glitches are very common. Stuff like removing your tracking info, and recently, the app thinks that the Sword & Shield promos are no apart of Detective Pikachu and you must scan them to unlock them. If you do though, you get an exclusive art piece, which is just a white box with the detective pikachu logo on it.
So if your a collector, especially one that’s been collecting for a long time. Just get Pokéllector and stay away from this app.
Nice tracker, but... Needs features.
I love the Card Dex app because it allows you to view all of the cards in the database that you have downloaded. However, the Browse section doesn't work like the screenshot for Unified Minds shows. It shows Complete Expansion with both, owned and not owned cards. I can’t manage to get the app to do that for me. Browse only shows owned cards, and the “Owned Only” button doesn’t change anything. Neither does changing the filter setting. Also, it would be nice to have a filter that shows only the cards you don't own from an expansion. That's what I was hoping to use in the app. Since downloading, however, it was nice to see XY era added. Despite this, there are still sets we don't have—such as the McDonald's Collection sets, and XY - Kalos Starter Set—which should have been added with the updates that brought XY. If the features I'm looking for are added, it would be nice to be able to view cards all the way back to Wizards of the Coast's Base Set (1999).
