So i've been playing Pokemon on and off since Pokemon Red was released here in 1999. I finished the Pokedex on Red, then Yellow, then near enough on Gold too, I only need a couple to have all 251 in the Pokedex. After that i never really finished a Pokedex, let alone tried to collect one of every Pokemon, until now. So i decided to compleate a Living Pokedex where i'm the OT of every Pokemon where possible. Over the last year i've finished a lot of Pokemon games. Pokemon Y, Omega Ruby, Black, White 2 and Heart Gold and as of a few weeks ago Pokemon Moon. Some of these i didn't have a lot to do on, some i've played through from the start. So the end result is i've now finished at least one Pokemon game in every pair / trio of games and imported a lot of Pokemon up from GEN 3 on wards to GEN 6. Due to the tedious process of doing this i've mainly imported my squads from the GBA games / early DS games, along with game event Pokemon and Pokemon from actual events. For White and Black 2 i imported everything as I caught a lot of Pokemon in these games, plus it was pretty easy importing a box full at a time without messing about with annoying mini games to import Pokemon. After that i numbered boxes 1-30, 31-60 and so on. I then placed all the Pokemon i had up to present in the relevant box space, if i had any duplicates I could evolve i placed that Pokemon in the place it should go once evolved. So for example I might have had Bulbasaur, Bulbasaur and another Bulbasaur in the first box. I'd then evolve two of those Bulbasaurs to end up with all three unique Pokemon. One thing i am doing though is only adding Pokemon where I'm the original trainer to my living dex where possible, I know this won't be possible for all Pokemon as some have only ever been event only. But where possible all Pokemon will have been caught by me or hatched from eggs by myself and have the same OT So at it stands at the moment the Pokedex starts out like this: And is now fully complete right to the end of GEN 2: With the addition of a box containing every Unown: When i finish the Pokedex i might go for other Pokemon's alternate forms as a long term goal! So that's basically what i've been doing, i've seen many guides on the internet along with spreadsheets for helping with a living Pokedex, none of which i've really found that useful. I've essentially imported all the Pokemon i plan to use from past games, ordered them and finally started at Bulbasaur and worked my way though the Pokedex from there, filling in the gaps as I go. I'm using Bulbapedia to see which Pokemon i need next, then what game / location will be the quickest to obtain it from, or if it's something i need to use the GTS for and then breed. This post is more for my own records, however I thought others might find it interesting. I started my living dex in October 2016 ish and got everything imported in to GEN 6, along with GEN 1 mostly finished. However Sun / Moon came out so i've not really managed to progress much until recently. So as of 12/02/17 GEN 2 is finished.
