This is brilliant!
I don't think that everyone will recognize this as a Pokédex :S
I would go with a Pokéball.
@Louie Mantia It's obviously well executed but the identification with Pokemon may be lost a bit. I think your shapes and colors may need to be reworked. Just my initial impressions, I'm sure you've done your homework. Doesn't scream Pokeball: http://cl.ly/SB1u
@Adrian Fahrbach @Marco Moreno You guys are a bit behind. X & Y's Pokédex: http://pokebeach.com/news/0513/xy/pokedex.jpg
@Louie Mantia Nailed it!
@Louie Mantia hmm, definitely. I thought it was a transit app - hah! Keep trucking Mantia ;)
This is brilliant Louie, love the styling and it does look like the Pokedex. Beautiful icon. Great job.
The dark blue circle is elegant, but I'd make it a tad darker to make it more distinguishable. Also, since you've got the inner shadow on the light blue and black part, a stronger outer shadow (around the white, I don't know if it's a shadow or just anti-aliasing) would perhaps look nice? It doesn't have to resemble the inset on the Pokédex, but I imagine something that's still subtle would look good.
@Louie Mantia The problem with the Pokedex is that (I guess) only about 10% of all Pokémon Players recognize this as a Pokédex. The other 90% percent think that this is some kind of a weird Pokéball.
Without any doubt, it looks great and is perfect for every Pokémon freak, but I think this concept doesn't work well with the average Pokémon trainers out there.
Edit: I haven't played X&Y yet, so I assume that the graphic doesn't appear frequently while playing.
@Adrian Fahrbach That's okay. You know what they'll recognize though? This icon, over time, just as every icon ever.
Knew it had something to do with Pokémon. Well done.
@Sara Menefee ^_^
dat grid. :P
I wouldn't worry about people not recognising it. Every X&Y player has opened the Pokedex at least once. They should be familiar with this look.
Love it! Instantly knew it was the X&Y pokedex. Although that's pretty much why the name "Oak" confused me. If it's the X&Y pokedex, wouldn't it be "Sycamore"?
@Christina Pham It's *ALL* the pokédexes! ^_^

Just finished with a visual refresh of the app Oak (including this app icon) with Caleb Thorson, which we just submitted to the App Store! Now we all wait patiently for the update to be approved. ^_^
