Completing Your Pokédex

Hello! So you’ve decided you want to complete your Pokédex but it’s already Generation VI how will I ever accomplish this? Well that’s what I’m hear to tell you. For the second time I’ve been in the process of completing the Dex and have mastered it excluding non-obtainable legendaries of course. In this article we will explore various methods in completing your Dex and getting you on your way to catching them all!

Method 1:



There are a couple Pokémon that I have found to be the most effective in catching all Pokémon within the game.

These two Pokemon are specifically Aegislash and Smeargle/Breloom. Now why the need of two Pokémon when Smeargle can easily fulfill all needs? Let me tell you.

Aegislash is a Ghost/Steel type Pokémon and thus isn’t affected by Normal or Fighting-Type moves. So when trying to capture a Pokémon that has already been knocked down to minimal health and uses a move such a Take Down the wild Pokémon can’t faint itself. This fact is especially useful when trying to capture a wild shiny without it fainting. He also has a second use when capturing Dittos but that’s in a future post

As for Smeargle it can learn any variety of moves and in doing so can become the ultimate Pokémon hunter. The move set I deem to be the most useful is: Soak, Spore, False Swipe, and Taunt. Soak is for the Pokémon not affected by Normal-Type moves or have a large defenses and a resistance to them. In using Soak they Become Water-type and are either no longer immune or no longer have a resistance to Normal-Type moves. Spore has the chance to put the opposing Pokémon asleep 100% of the time thus allowing for much easier capture. False Swipe can lower the opposing Pokémons health to 1 if the Pokémon using False Swipe has a high enough attack. Lastly, Taunt is used to stop the wild Pokémon you may be trying to capture from using Recovery moves or status safety moves like Safeguard. EV Training in Attack and Speed are the most beneficial providing the most amount of damage for False Swipe and priority for moving first.

Breloom is an alternative to Smeargle as not only is its attack respectable (and much better than Smeargles) but it also has access to False Swipe and Spore. It does the same thing just without Soak and Taunt for more attack. Parasect can also fill this role but is slower and has a lower base attack.

With access to any of these Pokémon capturing all of the Pokémon in game should be rather easy and completely your Dex shouldn’t take long at all.

Method 2:



So you may have captured every Pokémon in the game but not all final stages of evolution can be caught in the wild. Now you have to go about evolving all of your recently caught Pokémon and you’ll have to grind and grind and grind until they evolve or do you?

If you don’t mind have your Pokémon game accumulate tons of hours you can use the Daycare Lumiose trick. Find two Pokémon you have that have a considerable amount of levels to gain before evolution lets’ say Mienfoo and Pawniard which evolve at levels 50 and 52 respectively. Put those two in the daycare, fly to Lumiose City and ever the circle area. Then either find a piece of strong tape and apply it to one side of your joystick (left or right) and have your avatar ride around on the bicycle while you sleep for the night. One of those black clips you put on chip bags works just as well but use the D-Pad instead and it’ll make your avatar move left. When you wake up the next morning your Pokémon will most likely be in the levels of 70 or 80 and then a quick rare candy will get them to evolve and you won’t have had to use all that time grinding.

Method 3:



There are a few Pokémon within the game that require trade for Evolution. These are easily obtained for those that only need trade for evolution such as Boldore. The Pokémon who do not need items to evolve through trading are: Boldore, Graveler, Gurdurr, Haunter, Kadabra, Karrablast (If traded a Shelmet), Machoke, Phantump and Pumpkaboo.  However there are some Pokémon who need specific items when trading to evolve these Pokémon include:

Method 5:



There are some Pokémon that you can’t get in game and everyone knows how difficult the GTS can be with people asking for ridiculous things such as offering a Caterpie for a Jirachi or something like that. However the GTS can still be used to your advantage. To get some of those Pokémon that you don’t want to throw in the daycare to get to a high enough level to evolve and spend that much more time and money, instead offer some rare Pokémon on the GTS.

Any stater Pokémon work rather well and can get you a variety of fully evolved Pokémon for your Dex. Other Pokémon that may work well are Porygon and Beldum.

Now in order to get some of the rare Pokémon such as Legendaries there is a bit of a trick involved.

Step 1: Obtain a Scyther and attach a Metal Coat to it.

Step 2: Find a friend and have them help you make a Scizor.

Step 3: Put the Scizor up on the GTS and ask for a Yvetal or Xerneas. (The reason you ask for either legendary in X or Y is because they are the most common and sought after if you don’t have either one. Especially by kids in Japan I know from first hand experience. Obtaining this Legendary may take a couple days.)

Step 4:  Retrieve your Yvetal or Xerneas from the GTS and request a different Legendary you don’t currently have.

Step 5: Again in a couple days you should retrieve your desired Legendary.

Method 6:



Sometimes you can be lazy and especially when first filling out your Pokédex Wondertrade can be a viable option for finding Pokémon you might need. Simply either catch random Pokémon or breed some. Preferably if breeding  it is appreciated you one trades rare or starter Pokémon into the Wondertrade.
