    If you caught all of the Pokemon then there would be no Pokemon left for other people.


    I have claimed the beast that is Shieldon.

    or three weeks, excluding events, if you're like me and can't take your time while doing something in pokemon.

    But yeah, like it was said earlier, all you need are HG, SS, B/W and the GTS.

    Well technically no, it's not possible to 'catch' them all, because some can't be caught and have to be downloaded from special events etc. But yeah, if you have enough time on your hands and are lucky enough to be able to access wifi and have generous friends, yeah, it's possible to GET them all.

    It's just not easy.

    It's time consuming, but it can be done. I caught every pokemon in Pokemon Diamond. Minus a few event pokemon that I could not obtain, because the events had expired.

    Games I own:
    Pkm Red, Yellow, Sapphire, Diamond, and Black

    Dont you need to see them to ask for them on the GTS? So you need more than just them games.

    Yes, it is possible, but it is getting really annoying.

    6. Have wi-fi
    7. Willing to trade crap, good stuff and the happiness and joy of life
    8. Hack.

    At the time the game was release, HG/SS weren't out so Lugia and Ho-oh were still event Pokemon. When HG/SS came out, they could be caught (but they are still not necessary to complete Platinum's Pokedex, along with other event Pokemon). Did you need event Pokemon to complete the Pokedex in 3rd gen as well?

    GTS negotiations can be a godsend, even if half the time it doesnt work out for you. try to breed a bunch of hard-to-obtain pokemon that people like, like starters (females too), fossils, spiritomb, shedinga, pseudolegendaries, zouras, older gen pokemon (esp. from hoenn). try breeding your own DW females too. also go to nimbasa and change your greeting to something to something good like what you need ("I can do anything for squirtle") or say something special you have

    mew + celebii (not available outside japan IIRC) + jirachi + deoxys = yes. there were lugia/ho-oh events for 3rd gen too. however without nintendo wifi you had to physically meet to trade for something and physically go to events (sucks if you live in the middle of nowhere/country nintendo could care less about). so paradoxically it is actually easier to finish the pokedex even though there are more of them.

    It's possible, but can take quite a while. Most of the Pokemon can be caught in game, but for events, you'll have to trade for them.

    the GTS does make it seem very possible... I can catch all of them because i cheated in Diamond and got the pokedex filled. With a bunch of legendaries, I can get any pokemon I want, I just have to ask for it. Except Arceus.

    I guess not... I was actually too late to get any events. My Arceus came from a friend ^^ who also cheated for it.

    no events aren't needed to finish the pokedex. that explains why my pokedex is complete in black, without having the last 3.

    Of course it's possible, I have a complete pokedex in Yellow that includes Mew (thanks to the in-game glitch) and two complete National Dex for Diamond and SoulSilver (All 493). Most of the Pokemon I have obtained myself including the event Pokemon.

    Look at that face, you look like my next mistake

    My friend caught every single pokemon except the unreleased 3 in a matter of 6 years. He wasted a lot of his life but thats a addict for ya.
    Within my lifetime, I've done a lot of walking. I started my journey walking on a little path called Route 1. Little did I know that walking down that route would lead me onwards to a road that went by the name of Victory. Just west of Victory Road, I walked up an entire mountain where atop stood a silent trainer who was one of the mightiest I had ever faced. I've walked, through sandstorms, across the hard desert of Hoenn. I've walked through pelting hail, across the snow covered terrains of Sinnoh. And now as I look back on all my travels I find myself walking across the Skyarrow Bridge of Unova. It took a lot of walking through tall grass patches to get where I am today...But it was worth the walk.

    It's possible if you have a lot of time and dedication on your hands along with Wi-Fi.

    I don't have Wi-Fi, so it's impossible for me unless I cheat which I see no reason to do.
