    Default Where do you keep your completed pokedex?

    Platinum is the first time I've really made a sincere effort to complete my pokedex (and I'm getting close), but with the release of HG/SS maybe just a year away, I'm beginning to get a little disheartened, thinking that all this work won't matter much if I then move on to the new game.

    So I'm just curious, do any of you have any special method for handling your pokedex? Do you not even bother trying to complete it at all? Did you complete it once and then just don't bother doing it again with future games? Or do you try to complete it all over again with each new game?
    Looking for legit/non-cloned (will consider dex trading):
    Dragonite, Mew, Raikou, Tyranitar, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Celebi, Flygon, Cradily, Purugly

    Will trade these legendaries for any of the above that are legendaries: UT Kyogre (Level 70), UT Zapdos (Level 50), barely touched Moltres (Level 50) [all legit/non-cloned]

    my method for me is simple.
    Ive completed my FR/LG Pokedex and my Diamond Pokedex. Im still working on my Platinum one.
    All I did was complete it on FR/LG and send all of them over to Diamond and rebreed or catch some of the few that I didnt want to breed.
    And Ive been trading most of my Pokemon this week to Platinum trying to train them up with all the leveling opportunities and getting the starters and their evos.

    But all you should do is set a goal for which Pokemon you want. I suggest go for about 5 or as many as you want to catch a day that you need to complete the dex and go out and look for em in any of those games.
    Just make sure to use the Pal Park because the girl at the register will ask for a Snorlax and a Kecleon for Apps on your Poketch.

    Well with me, I decided before platinums release that pearl was going to be my "pokedex game" meaning that's where I will fill it up while platinum will be my "battle game" where I can have my strongest pkmn to challenge others.....in my national pokedex I am missing a lot of johto pokemon...so silver should cover that!

    Yeah, this is exactly what I'm talking about. I don't like the idea of having a "pokedex game" that *isn't* the main game I still continue to play, but that's probably going to be the case when I start HG/SS, unless I try to trade them all from Pt to HG/SS.

    Same here, although I am currently working on my Pearl, mainly just the Sinnoh PokéDex.

    Even with HG/SS coming, I'm a little mad. I just started migrating legendaries from GBA to Platinum and now I have to restart.
    I can RNG on B/W. PM me and I'll see what I can do.

    I just started doing the same, as a matter of fact. I started to migrate my legendaries over so I could see them on the GTS. Now that HGSS is coming out, I wont really need them as they are the ones that will be in that game.

    I try to get all the pokemon that I can in the game but I don't go to any extra lengths to get what I can't.

    I decided that I will make Platinum my full pokedex game even though Diamond has so much more filled up. Even with HG/SS coming out I want Platinum completed.

    Well my Plat. is going to be my main game, everything that doesnt need to be on other games will be on my plat. Now the only problem is... I still need to buy Platnium.

    I have all of my Pokedex filled in Emerald, save a few that I need to go back and evolve.

    My Leafgreen pokedex is completed. I lost Pearl version on a plane, and that had a completed pokedex, but I guess that doesnt count. I don't have much interest in re-completing it, but I might for HG/SS.

    I started on Ruby and collected as many as I could. Then I shifted it to my Fire Red, then Leaf Green (where it got some help from Colo and XD) and on to Emerald. By then it was 384. I transferred it to Diamond as soon as I could, where it is almost complete (491) =D Missing Shaymin and Arceus.

    And then I got obsessive and collected one of each form (Shellos, Burmy, Wormadam, Unown etc.) XD plus a Ditto of every nature

    I'm 10 away from finishing diamond. More like 8 now.

    Then I'll work on SoulSilver when it comes out. Until then I'm focusing on shinies.

    Still waiting on Platinum to come out here, that's where I'll be keeping my completed pokedex. so I can use the other versions for resetting for the starter Pokemon etc for example It's gonna be a long way to get there still for me. *giggle* I guess you can compare it with Ash, the night before he went off :P. I can't wait to get my hands on the game.

    No time for catching, as I moved to breeding Cyndaquils and aim for the last star on the trainercard
    There'll be total devastation,
    Pure annihilation
    Or absolute surrender.
    I'll have limitless power,
    This is our finest hour
    Now go,go,go,go!

    I decided I will NOT complete Platinum PokeDex, I hate having to migrate and trade to get legendaries, too much work...

    Pearl is 97&#37; complete, stored in a shoebox ^_^

    I completed it in Diamond (except for out little Arceus). My box is just the same as my dex (excluding the male/female differend formes).
    So I'll just transfer them all to whatever game will be my main game in the future. (To platinum when I get it, to the 5th gen when it comes out, etc).

    I am indeed the one with the power of a god.
    The divine flames that I've absorbed
    will burn you to a crisp with nuclear energy and leave nothing behind!
