Just have a quick question, since I'm playing HeartGold, am I allowed to catch Murkrow at the Safari Zone? I'm not going to evolve it or any other pokemon into Gen 4 pokemon though.

As far as I'm aware, as long as the Pokemon is available through legitimate means, you can use it. I think you're also permitted to evolve it into Honchkrow, if you so choose

Huggermugger is correct, you may catch any Pokemon legitimately obtainable in game, even in Safari Zone. You can also evolve it if you wish, as long as you obtain the Dusk Stone in game, which can be done in various post game locations.

Okaii, it's been a little while since I updated. I just got Black 2 so I've been busy on that rather than Platinum.

- Remembered that Bebe gives you an Eevee and went over to get it in Hearthome City.

- Bred the Eevee because I prefer starting Pokemon I raise off at Level 1.

- Egg was obtained.

- Egg hatched into Eevee. Nickname: Shadows

- Fed Shadows lots of Vitamins and such to evolve it to Umbreon in the night.

- During the grinding session, finished the final scenario with Team Galactic, getting Shadows up to speed with the rest of the team in the process.

- Headed for Sunyshore City and pwned Volkner with Shadows's Dig and Pinch's Earthquake.

- Am currently undergoing more grinding for the entire team. Plan to get them all to LVL 60-somethings soon.

Current team:



Mistress
Species: Honchkrow
Type: Dark/Flying
Gender: Female
Level: 53


Lucian
Species: Houndoom
Type: Dark/Fire
Gender: Male
Level: 51


Pinch

Although out of curiosity since you said Blaze Black is acceptable and all 600+ creatures can be caught in game do all of them count as "Regional Pokédex" for this challenge?

I suppose it would, but, this begs the question, in a game that offers every Pokemon, why would you need to hack or trade?

The only reason I ask is because if you only count what could actually be caught in Black or White with Poison types I could only conceivably have 3 pokemon so I wanted to know if I was allowed to supplement

Sorry, it just seemed like an odd question, since the only place I ever mention regional dex is in relation to trading and hacking in mons. If you are able to catch a pokemon, then you may. So any pokemon available in the hack is fair game.

Today is the last day of the 1000 post event! At midnight American central time all hacking outside the standard rules will not be allowed. Anyone with a hacked pokemon already in their game is free to keep it in that game, but no new ones may be added. Here is my last one, as a means to use it to make the most empty monotype more playable.

Hey guys! Still working on an update, but I have a bit of a predicament. I am playing on my Electric challenge, and my Chinchou that I hacked in just got to Lv. 27, so it started to evolve into Lanturn. But, mid-evolution, it stopped evolving and my dialogue said "...?". I swear I did not press B, so I am thinking it is beacuse it is hacked. Could someone please explain why this is happening?

It's because you can't evolve Pokémon outside of Kanto Regional Dex in FR/LG unless you have the National Dex. I've gone through the same thing with my Surskit xD

Kagami is correct about this. I did find a work around though. Some rom hacks have the evolution block completely removed. Notably, Pokemon Murky Red is one I found that works. All you have to do is load your save file while playing such a hack, level up to evolve, and then save again, reload with your regular rom, and you should be good. It's what I did to evolve my Shuppet.

Started my Dragon mono, beat Brock, too lazy to update the way I normally do...

The same thing happened in my challenge with Seedot. As others mentioned, it's because you don't have the National Dex. So what I did was use a cheat to get the National Dex. But it's recommended you do this only after getting the Tea from the old woman in Celadon, or you can't get into Saffron without a cheat or something. You could also try what NecrumWarrior suggested too, since finding the National Dex cheat was kinda annoying, at least for me.
