Have You Ever Catched 'em All?

I am of course talking about Pokemon, have you ever catched them all? Or how close have you gotten? WITHOUT CHEATING TOO!

I don't have any real proof to back it up, so if you don't want to believe me then that's fine but here's what I remember:

R/B/Y - ~88, never had a cable, but I if did I could've done it easilly.

Crystal - ~130, basically most of the ones that are on that game.

Emerald/FireRed - ~150 -Don't really remember, but I knew I had a lot, including most of the legendaries.

Diamond/Pearl - ~390, I almost completed that game 100% without cheating, migrated a bunch from the GBA games and traded A LOT. Too bad I got it stolen by one of my brother's friends. He probably still has it. All I need on there are the Johto ones which bring me to my most recent game.

SoulSilver - I am working on this game with my brother, we've got up to 170 without migrating from GBA and barelly trading at all.

So how close have YOU gotten?

(Also, I hope there already isn't a thread like this already :D)

I caught them all with good ol' fashion grinding and breeding. Seriously, catching pokemon is not hard unless you meet a person online and ask for the pokemon you need. Legendaries and Event pokemon are always the hardest to get, but I manage to get them eventually. I have both versions, so I can really get what I want easily. I can make a perfect team if necessary.

I suck soo bad at catching them all! I say at the beginning of EVERY new game "I'm going to catch each one when I meet it, unless I already have it!" But I don't... Goomboo (on hid HG) has all the gen. I, II and III pokes, and most of the gen. IV ones!!! He probably has most of the gen. V ones aswell!

Behind you
Whenever a new Pokemon game comes out, I go through a self-destructive process of constantly playing it so that I can CATCH 'EM ALL. And I mean CATCH 'EM ALL. I currently have a SoulSilver copy with every single Pokemon from Generations I-IV on it. I bought White, but upon learning of the caveat that you can't keep the old Pokemon that you trade to it or get them back, I ceased my quest to CATCH 'EM ALL for the fifth generation.

So yes, I have CAUGHT 'EM ALL a few times.

I remember once I came VERY close to completing the Platinum Sinnoh Pokedex (somewhere around 140 if I remember correctly) but then something stopped me and I stopped (and soon deleted my game to replay it). I don't quite remember if I ever managed to catch them all in the originals, I think I might've gotten close once but I'm not sure. It's been ages since I last played one of the Gen I games.

On Red Version I had all except Mew I think on at least one of my playthroughs. So I guess I did for that version. On G/S/C and Ruby versions I got many pokemon but I never got close to catching them all. In firered I had all the original 150 pokemon and then all of the pokemon catchable in the game but I didnt trade much with tha game so I never caught them all. In Heart gold I had almost all of the pokemon from Gen 1 and 2. Along with that I had many of the gen 4 pokemon due to my brothers Diamond version but almost none of the 3rd gen pokemon. Now on Pokemon Black and White I am just starting to try and catch all of them. I have almost all of the gen 5 pokemon and I have almost every legendary from all gens because I traded all of my legendaries up to Heartgold and then on into Pokemon Black.

Closest I got was Pokemon Silver for the GBC. With minimal trading, and no cheats/hacks, out of a possible 251, i had I believe 220-230.

I've done it on Blue Version but that's it.

I'm not a big Poke Fan.

1 thing the games are defiantly better than the TV Show.
