I spent way too much time doing this, but at least I had fun with it along the way. Rather than explain why each individual line is included, I'll just give some of the main reasons why my Pokedex is the way it is.
  • Resembles a regular regional dex, with starters and weaker Pokemon in the front, and strong, specialty or legendaries nearer to the end
  • I wanted a good balance of types, so each type is represented by at least two lines
  • Tried to make every generation well represented, and I think I did a pretty good job
  • I wanted the starters to be single-type, so I just used the Johto starters rather than take some from different regions
  • Didn't play favorites when making my dex. If I had, it would be pretty unbalanced
  • Water is the most represented type, with 5 lines normally part-Water type (and can be as high as 8 dependant on certain conditions)
  • Wanted to get as many Pokemon possible while using just the 30 evolutionary lines. Almost went as high as 95, but wanted Pokemon like Ditto who took up a whole line themselves
  • Despite no actual evolution, for all intents and purposes I considered Mew and Mewtwo as part of the same line (if you disagree, then ignore Mewtwo in my list)
Everything else I'd say is pretty self-explanatory. So without further ado, here's my Pokedex:
