Aaah, I gotcha.
I mean I was more interested in doing so for the first gen, as there were only 150. Praise Safari Zone.
But as the gens rolled on it became harder to complete the games without walking a titightrope rope of learning work arounds and what have you.
Ah, the dex-quest. I've never completed mine before.
I did meet a milestone in that one pokemon game. (I think emerald), and I got an item from the self insert developer.
Pretty sure it was Yellow version as well. Where you could only get certain pokemon from the game center.
