I am completely new to the pokemon games but would love to purchase a game which I'll be able to catch a Sentret/Furret in the field with no need for trading or anything of the sorts.
I'm aware that HG/SS is an option but I'd just like to know if it's possible in any other of the games.
unfortunately the greatest pokemon ever is not available in most games without trade or being in postgame. looks like sentret is only out and about in the wild in GSC, HGSS, and XY. if you don't mind waiting until post game though, it's also in FRLG, DPPt (via pokeradar), and BW (post game swarms). there's also an obtainable furret in pokemon colosseum, if that interests you.
Thank you so much,
Do you know if it's easy to obtain in xy? Complete novice here D:
ur good!! looks like sentret is pretty early on in XY, on route 6 and with a high encounter rate. i'm not super familiar with XY, but i do know that's after the first gym, but before the second. they're not hard to catch either, it's not like trying to catch a legendary. best of luck, friend!
