Kinda like today, I was trying to farm for light clay from Goletts on route 10, they are a common spawn.. I seriously spent over 15 minutes just to get 1 to SHOW UP!!!! instead i seriously had emogas and houndours show up back to back even a electrike and tons of hawluchas!! the damn rare and very rare spawns showed up way more than golett.. damn RNG..
Yeah that's true. Idk, there's just a certain comfort the numbers bring me, regardless or my actual experiences with luck. When I came across the possibility that it could be as low as ~1/400 something, that was one of the main factors that pushed me to complete the National Dex, to finally answer the OP haha.

    I voted very close, but not less than 20. I have about 64 more total to see at least. I have every pokemon from 1 to 649 mostly, I just have to hatch a lot of eggs to get them. I no longer need Poke Bank though.

          No...I'd probably only complete it if I cheated in Pokemon White 2 and used Pokemon Bank unfortunately.

            I have, thankfully. But the problem is, I no longer have anything to do.
            I only was playing to get all the Pokemon. I only did the Maison to get evolutionary items.
            It depresses me, and all I've done since I've complete the dex is rearrange my boxes endlessly.

                I'm gonna attempt to do this myself starting from scratch as I just came back, but I know some of the event only Pokemon are going to be hard to obtain/trade for =(. Not looking forward to those.

                  I have about 300 pokemon left to go, but I think this may be the first one I actually complete, so I'm kind of excited!

                    I'm working on it. It's a slow process, since I've never done it before so I have nothing to base it on, i'm practically starting from scratch. I have a lot from every region and have almost finished Kanto (23 left)

                    Not by a long shot, let's just say I've probably got about 600+ yet to capture.. ;;

                      Yes I have! Took me some weeks though and a lot of time, but I completed the entire Pokedex including event legends (because of my black and white games)

                      I really wanted to have the shiny charm so it was totally worth it! Got some amazing luck already

                        Working on it. Got about 150 left to go. I think it'll start to get hard when the only pokemon left are the legendaries. Hopefully I can trade for those. =)

                          I have not yet completed the national Pokedex! D:

                          But I am working on it! Finally, between all of my Pokemon games, X will be the one where I complete the Pokedex!

                          I mean, it's about time, right?

                              I completed it a few months ago, and also own one copy of every single pokemon, Bulbasaur through Zygarge. That way when another game comes out or I want to restart, my dex will already be 100% complete. Then I will be able to have good chances of finding shinies throughout my playthroughs.
                              FC is 1418-6740-9558 PM me if you add me.

                              I have Psychic Safari with Munna/Sigilyph/Duosion.

                              I didn't even realize they finally released the darn Bank, I completely missed the free period to use it. Once I transfer everything over I should be around 100 or so away from completing it.

                              I'm working on it and have some 200 more left. I badly want a shiny charm for Competitive shinies.

                                I finished mine about a month ago with Manaphy. I was also able to complete collecting 1 of every pokemon and lay them out from Bulbasar to Zygarde in my boxes. Now i will be able to collect the national pokedex in future games if they keep the pokebank up and running.

                                  I completed my X on the day bank came out and Y the following weekend when I had the time to do it, Might work on a living dex now for when the next games come out so it's easier to transfer them.

                                  I finished two times, actually. I cycled most of my Pokemon back when I completed it first time so with the second game I had to start somehow new.
