    Title. For me, I sometimes get the urge to but then realize that the only way to complete it will be to get an unnecessary amount of games and consoles or sending the device to someone so they can trade onto it... I don't have any friends that are in the area who play previous generations.

      I completed my 1st dex in red many years ago before a mewtwo trade with a friend went badly, causing me to get the game file whiped. xD
      I completed my national dex once in crystal, ss. & platinum.
      ... was too busy speedrunning 5th gen to care about the dex xD
      ... in 6th Gen my overall shiny luck is so good in X, i never thought about a shiny charm, though mm'ing for nicknameable ocean scatterbug for over 3 years in Y now, a shiny charm does cross my mind sometimes. XD

      Sometimes? I never had cables for the GB(C) games, so I knew that was a longshot. I completed the Hoenn Dex in Sapphire as a kid and was disappointed I only got a virtual certificate lmfao. I hacked a complete dex in Diamond. Uhhh I started to work on finishing it in White at one point, but got bored. I completed it in X though, finally. Events and legendaries and all! I'm pretty proud of myself for that one! And then I think I tried in Ultra Moon, but I got distracted with other games.

      With the Virtual Console having RBY and GSC on it though, I think I might try to get back into Crystal and go for a complete dex. Crystal is one of my favorites and having a version that won't corrupt due to an old battery is extra incentive for me to try! Maybe that can be on the to-do list for 2019.

        As I got Gen 1 when it came out, Catching Em All was always the target and still is for me. Grinding up levels to beat Battle Towers bores me to even think about it. I was always quite lucky to have the original GB as well as GBC, as well as the opposite versions so I could trade with myself. Same with GBA and GBA SP and even today I have DS and 3DS.

        Recently I revisited some old games and completing the Pokédex on Blue and Gold. Ruby always caused me difficulties as a kid without the internet. I could never find the dragon scale to get Kingdra or Feebas and hence Milltic. But now I’m older I’ve completed the national dex on Ruby and FireRed.

        Currently working on HG national dex and will follow with Diamond although my Sinnoh Dex is already complete. Then I’ll go for a completed National on B then W2 then Y and OR.

        Lesser of an achievement but I’ve also done Sun and LGE. Hope to one day have a living dex on Pokemon bank with each Pokemon’s catch location being its own origin region

            Can I ask what you do play the games for if not to complete pokedexes? Just interfered to hear different opinions on what the point of the game is for others.

            Well, I did in Platinum and B2W2. So there was that. And Emerald way back in 2009. So yeah, I did some of the time but not in every game.

              I've only ever managed to complete it in Omega Ruby but I got pretty close in Platinum and Heartgold.

              It's not very effective...

              I got it done in Platinum. I'm actively working on HeartGold as most of the Pokemon are available quite easily, and I love Hoenn/Sinnoh sound!

              Gen 6 and beyond simply didn't hold my interest in the game long enough for me to even consider working on the dex.

              Nope. The reward(s) never really seemed that worth it to me at the time, and I was never really into completing the Pokedex much, anyway. :c
