I argue with my partner that Pokedex from the basic set is not a good trainer card, especial when she can choose from "Potion", "Super Potion", "Professor Oak", "Gust of Wind" and "Switch". Does anyone still use this card?

I use the card in one of my training decks, but that's about it. Really there are just much better uses of slots in your deck than Pokedex.

I've heard of its usage in fire decks where you discard the top 5 cards and do damage based on the fire energies discarded. the point would be to check if you had a good amount of fire there and if it'd be wise to use the attack.
Other than that, i think most would use New Pokedex over it. it's best when used with Bill or Erika. cards such as Professor elm are more likely to be used instead of Pokedex (why glance at the cards and wait 2 or 3 turns when you could draw it on the same turn?) and i think cards like Oracle and Underground Expedition will replace the rest of the Pokedexs running around in decks.
Pokedex was good in a time where we didn't have the options of draw power we do now.
