    It's really good, except that the post game drags on a bit too much, and there are only a few unique missions (most are just the same scenario but as a different character).

    My main issue with Pokemon Conquest as opposed to either other pokemon games or similar genre games (to conquest) like Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is the lack of multiple attack techniques per pokemon, which does make battles rather more repetitive than they might otherwise be.

    Apparently I didn't need to make a new thread....

    I've got Ruby, Saphire, Emerald, Heart Gold, Soul Silver, Diamond, Peal, Platinum, Black, and White, as well as Colliseum and Battle Revolution

    I do know it is borderline impossible to have full records on every single cart, so I only intend to do it on one main game for each generation (Emerald, Platinum, Black 2 / White 2 when they come out, one or the other). And I can probably find other missing versions for anything specific I might not have during that generation.

    But I'm basically going to start the games over again, and I intend to capture -every- single Pokemon in existance (using Gameshark/Action Replay for the special Event Pokemon only).

    Are there any other games I'm missing for this sort of endeavor? What other tips should I consider for this project? And what of you guys? Have you captured all 150 151 251 386 493 649 Pokemon?

    I'm sure at least several of the regular posters in this thread have completed the pokedex, and I know I plan on doing so.

    Currently I've got 551/649, so I'm getting close.

    So, it's dawned on me that I'm a Youngster talking to a bunch of Ace Trainers.

    To be fair, it's 'cause I kinda stoped playing the games for a while... I was pretty good in school, and all but completed Emerald and Platinum with the other versions being used to fuel them before... but then the games got semi ****'ed up with the Action Replay (though I've seen what good it can do when used right), and I don't wanna corrupt my Black.

    Random Question: I got a Victini when it came out. But I don't wanna reset that game and risk losing it. Is there a way to re-enable that event with codes yet?

    Possibly, but probably not. Since it's an actual in-game event, it's different from simply sending you a link to how to get your own fake GTS and download a 'mon that way. Far as I know, it'd involve faking the Wonder Card that unlocks the event itself.

    Confession time: I've never actually completed a National 'Dex. Always got bored before then, and a lot of the 'mons that I'm usually missing are either from another region (usually Hoenn, as I don't have any of those games... the region's never appealed to me, really) or an evolutionary stage I haven't bothered to work for (Munchlax, Porygon-Z, more than one Eeveelution...). Don't mistake my incomplete 'dex or my monotyped sweeper team for inexperience... I've played through all the regions but Hoenn and the team just conforms to my preferences in both play style and aesthetics. That, and I tend to stay away from PvP in practice because the whole thing has a rather sour taste for me.

    Yeah, I don't think I have any games with a completed Dex either. I may have completed a Sightdex or two. Completing the Dex is never one of those things I was particularly interested in for some reason or another.

    I haven't completed the pokedex since Gold version, where I had every pokemon but celebi, which was unobtainable to me since it was just Japanese Crystal that got it. I decided to work on the pokedex when I learned about the Shining Charm in BW2.

    EDIT: Make that 553 pokemon. Just finished the Squirtle line.

    I aimed for a Living Dex in Black. Managed to nearly fill up Unova, and a good bit of Sinnoh too. Organized all my boxes...

    The Wonder Card is exactly what I'm looking for... I wish it was saved to the catrige, rather than the file... then I could reset the game and still have the Victini... Gotta be a way to get another Wonder Card somehow... any of you know? Or do I just gotta tough it out on that file?

    That's what turned me off to Pokemon for a while... I can only tolerate the 252 ev 31 iv perfect moveset hyper metagamed mindset for so long. I stoped bothering with it after a while, if only because it got on my nerves. I understand it's right for a serious and good fight, but still, between the almost insultingness of people for you not having hacked or rng abused your game, and for having the audacity to use your favorites, it just got annoying...

    Oh, I know, I know!

    Growlith, Oddish, Mankey, Ekans, Scyther, and Electabuzz, as well as whatever you don't choose between Starters, Eevee's evolved form, the Hitmon, and the Fossil.

    Eh, I prefer not to hack or RNG abuse anything. I just do a LOT of breeding. A LOT. SO MUCH. Ugh.

    I wanted to make a "Fighting Pokedex" where I had well-trained versions of every Pokemon so I could put some teams and stuff together. That kinda fell apart when I drifted into other interests.

    I actually have really liked Nuzlocke for "competitive" Pokemon. Though perhaps having Heartgold so early wasn't a good idea. This game is SO LONG.

    That reminds me. Remember that HG run I was doing where I set all Wild pokes to be completely random in species?

    I found a Shiny in Slowpoke Well.

    It was a Spoink.

    WHY?!

    At least shiny Spoink and Grumpig look different. Better than getting a shiny that looks the same as the normal.

    EDIT: Mine was a gligar that arrived in the tail end of my breeding program. It even had the right nature

    I should have saved my first ever Legendary... I found it randomly on Mt Pyre in Ruby. It was a Duskull. I don't think I have that file anymore, though...

    I wonder if there's a possibility of playing these games on an emulator, then making an action replay code to overwrite the actual game, since screen-to-screen battling/trading is still possible that way, and won't require dual hand-held gaming...

    It just occurred to me that my team in Black version changes almost daily.

    I'm no longer even using half of them (Garchomp, Hydreigon, Zoroark, Dragonite, Blissey, Togekiss, even Tyranitar, all sitting in the box), but I've found some new favorites (like Heracross, Heatran (doesn't know Dragon Pulse though ) and event Raikou).

    And I found my first Black version shiny pokemon the other day! A shiny...*gasp* Audino!



    I was hunting for 6 HP EVs for Heracross...and it turned up shiny. I just couldn't KO it .
