View Full Version : How Long Did it Take You to Complete Your PoKÚDeX?

1st April 2006, 6:22 PM
Okay, I am just curious, for those of you of whom have, how long did it take you to complete your PoKÚDeX w/o cheats?
(and please do not say "I have not yet.")

1st April 2006, 6:50 PM
202 long and annoying hours. But it's worth it, I guess. Now I can honestly say I "beat" PokÚmon. XD

1st April 2006, 6:55 PM
never .

1st April 2006, 7:05 PM
It took me about three months (excluding Celebi).

1st April 2006, 7:26 PM
I still haven't gotten Celebi yet, and haven't gotten Mew on that particular game, but I don't think that matters. It took me around 3 years, partly because I was prolonging getting an Exeggutor for awhile because I thought you couldn't play anymore after you finished.

1st April 2006, 8:58 PM
I of course meant game time...
For myself, I am not 100% sure, but it was somewhere within my first 120 hours I am pretty sure...

Took me about 4 months

1st April 2006, 10:02 PM
game time? excluding celebi, about 170 hours.

2nd April 2006, 12:45 AM
Well, to get 108 Pokemon so far:
Game Time: 50:02

2nd April 2006, 12:51 AM
Hours? 98 hours.

It took me about a year to fully complete it (including celebi)

2nd April 2006, 8:53 AM
It took me like... 2 years to complete my Gold Pokedex, without cheats. ^_^ ...but I don't have Celebi. >_<

After 260 hours, I finally completed it on Friday.

3rd April 2006, 1:09 AM

400 hours including time in the other versions (Red, other Silver, Gold Crystal) in trading and capturing none GSC Pokemon. Have all but Mew, plan on getting that with Emerald. And Journey across America.;025;

3rd April 2006, 10:39 AM
So far its taken me about 150-200 hours to narrow it down to:
Celebi(im never going to get)
Bellosom(I have never won in the BCC)
Sunflora " "

I think that is all

3rd April 2006, 10:45 AM
Everything in 91 hours, self-caught Mew in Red using the glitch (which makes up for the event Mew I had in rby and lost due to a buggy blue cart).

Celebii I got from a buddy, not sure how legit it is but meh, no Aussie Celebii event.

I also spent most of those hours just levelling things, trades = winner.

3rd April 2006, 12:59 PM
Still havent done it, after many files...

4th April 2006, 4:53 PM
It took me 215 hours (without mew or celebi) but i didn't use any cheats, glitches or that kinda stuff.

5th April 2006, 1:40 AM
300 long hours to complete it the first time, with Mew (event) without Celebi. It took forever to get Blissey :(.

5th April 2006, 4:51 AM
5 years...........5 long years, and I still don't have Celebi.

It took me about 300 hours of playing. It was about 3 years ago I finished Gold, which to this day is the only Pokemon game I have 'truly' completed.

22nd June 2006, 12:23 AM

22nd June 2006, 4:55 PM
307 hours excluding celibi

26th June 2006, 7:57 PM

I havent completed it yet but I have about 148 pokemon on sliver,
and 98 on blue including Mew;151; and 108 on Gold. Now all I need is a
second gameboy and a gamelink cable.

28th June 2006, 9:04 AM

I think it's probably around 350 hours to get 250 pokemon (excluding Celebi). That took a while to complete it. (Don't have GS to get Celebi though)

How do you guys complete it? Trading with your own games? Friends? ...ehhhh?

3rd July 2006, 3:48 AM
trading with my own games with my sister's game boy.

3rd July 2006, 3:23 PM
nearly 6 years of playing still not anywhere close.

3rd July 2006, 3:25 PM
I'm not finished. But I don't play it anymore, it's shockingly bad and ugly if you once played R/S/E/FR/LG

3rd July 2006, 3:43 PM
i never completed it in GSC lol:D

3rd July 2006, 3:53 PM
I only need 7 more :(

3rd July 2006, 3:57 PM
Since I never tried to complete the Pokedex in my Gold Version untill way later, I completed it when it said that the total amount of hours I played was 997:50! 0.o

5th July 2006, 2:34 PM
Less than 100 hours. What I did was go to Mount Silver, put a low-level Pokemon in the first slot, holding experience share, find a battle, switch it out. A level 5 Pokemon could gain 3 or 4 levels with one battle. But I also kindasorta cheated, since if I had a bunch of low-level Pokemon that needed raising, I just started a new game and traded them in, and raised them throughout the game (That's what I'm doing with Ruby/Sapphire now).

(It took me forever to get Blissey, too, and Crobat.)

6th July 2006, 5:53 PM
It took me about 4 years in Crystal to have every pokemon except Celebi only because I played it like once a month. For the in game time, 120 hours or so.

7th July 2006, 9:21 PM
i dont see the point in doing it, unless they give you somthing amazing once youve done it, i mean what do you get in red yellow and blue once youve done it? a f**king certificate.

8th July 2006, 8:29 AM
violetriot does have a point, i remember thinking the same in my Blue and Silver versions. anyway, i have started a new Silver file and have nearly 140 pokemon in about 70 hours. ill edit this post when i complete it again.

I took me like 3 years to complete my pokedex in G/S/C.400 hours to complete my pokedex on R/B/Y.Sometimes I felt like giving up,each time I was having a hard i tried to train my Dratini to turn into a Beautiful Dragonite

For R/B/Y (Red) it took me 6 months because I was so n00b-ish. As for G/S/C (Gold) it took me 3 weeks and for (Silver) it took 1 week. Having two gameboys makes it easy.

11th July 2006, 6:55 PM
It took me 3 weeks to complete it. I had to trade a lot from all my other games, and my brother's Silver Version though.
