It does seem a bit of a chore, but it's fairly mindless so I could listen to the radio at the same time.

As for updating pokemon.txt, I looked through each species on PokemonDB quite quickly to find any species which had a separate movelist for B2W2 (this was easier than looking at Bulbapedia), and just updated them manually.
This is VERY similar to my method, some parts are even identicals.

I has thought that you use also an IO function to merge data when the game compiles.

I didn't noticed that B2W2 have a low number of species with different movelist.
