Well, when Pokemon Diamond and Pearl was announced a couple years back. I decided that when I get the games I will challenge myself to catch all 493 Pokemon. I know a lot of people have all 492 Pokemon excluding Arceus, but the difference with me is that I'm NOT;
- Using any of my OLD GBA/GC games.
- No hacking, cloning.
- No trading with old games, or other people online.
- No use of Glitches.
Basically starting a fresh. Actually obtaining all the Pokemon myself. This is the most legit way possible as a lot of Pokemon trading about are Clones, or Hacked. Especially the rare Event Pokemon such as Mew, Celebi, etc.
So I bought Diamond, and Pearl. Also I bought a new copy of FireRed, Ruby, and Pokemon Colosseum. I have now obtained 440 Pokemon out of the 493. I have Darkrai, and Shaymin, and loads of other normal and some legends that I need on my Platinum Japanese. However I need another DS to trade. (I guess I need to upgrade anyways, I still have the oldest model).
Anyways; just wondering if anyone else on this forum also does the same as me? I know there are a lot of Anti-Hackers, and Anti-Cloners. Just wondering if anyone else is going through the extream lenths I am.
