The Information Pod acts as a help center in the console/PC version of Sonic Generations. It gives Sonic information about various elements of the game, such as Boss Gate Keys, switching Sonics in the hub, and about the player's objectives in the game. It can also be used to view the player's records. It can be found in White Space between the Collection Room and the Skill Shop.
