I consider my game completed when I've acquired one of every Pokemon in my PC. I'm not sure why; just filling up the Pokedex ought to be enough, but for me it isn't. I like to have everything in National Dex order sitting in my PC. I wind up doing sidequests etc whilst I'm doing this, so it's probably more a long-term goal than anything else, otherwise I'd probably just give up after I'd explored post-game areas...I've never been overly fond of sidequests.

With Black 2, I'd consider it complete when I've got every medal...which is never going to happen, because some are beyond ridiculous and I don't have the patience for them.

I never consider my game finished. I build up the team i want and then,I ¨stop¨ playing until the next game comes out. Then I build up the team i want in the new game and transfer old pokemon. TBH ive never cared of the pokedex

I usually consider it completed when I've got the pokédex as complete as possible, destroyed the pokémon league, levelled up my pokémon to fairly high levels (varies from around mid-60s in Emerald to high 80s like Red's in HeartGold), and had a decent stab at the Battle Tower / Battle Frontier. I actually managed to get a sticker from 4/5 facilities in Platinum last time (guess which one I couldn't. Hint: my pokémon team in that runthrough was awesome).

But for the pokédex part that goalposts shift. On LeafGreen or Emerald it's literally catch everything possible and get all the evolutions / baby pokémon possible. In Diamond, Platinum and HeartGold it's a complete regional 'dex. And on's never completed, I lose interest. But I always aim to defeat Alder (only have once though).

When I beat the Champion?
I don't really do all the post-game stuff.

I consider my game finished when I get the black/five star trainer card and even then, I'll still be making teams for wi-fi battles.

I consider mine completed when I beat the E4, or when I reach them & don't feel like continuing because there's not much to do afterwards...
However in games like G/S/C and HG/SS I have to beat Red ofc
I don't really have the time or brains to level up all my pokes to lvl.100 or complete the dex, the only game in which I completed the dex (all pokes seen but not owned) is in Gold, & that's because I didn't have to trade/evolve much, & I only traded with myself

Generally on my first playthrough or two I'll consider it over when I obviously beat the Elite 4 and any super bosses, as well as capturing all the legendaries. As for regular playthroughs for fun, i'll just beat the elite 4/champion and call it quits.

I usually consider it done when I beat the Elite 4 and the Champion.
After that I take my time to do the post game stuff.

Sometimes when I finish the Elite Four and Champ stuff, then I consider it done.

Other times, I don't stop till I have my national Pokedex.

I consider a game complete when I get my ideal team all to level 100, and as many legitmate pokemon as I can get recorded in my Pokedex.

Because screw wasting 100+ hours trading back and forth between random people just to get those few extra super-rare legendaries.
