Continued trucking on towards Pokédex completion. I was able to register a lot of the item evolution Pokémon after trading with a user here so I don't have to waste time earning BP/trying to get extra evolution stones from Super Training to get all of them. I was also able to evolve all of the trade evolution Pokémon I currently had so that was another handful added to my 'dex.
I've also decided that although I'm still aiming to get a living Pokédex, I'm not going to be too fussy about them all having my ID number/coming from my game. So as well as moving the handful of traded Pokémon that were waiting to be bred/evolved to get them under my ID no., into their proper places in Bank, I very quickly managed to trade a Fennekin for a L30 Larvesta, gave it the Lucky Egg and started to level it in a grass FS. Overall, getting Volcarona was nowhere near as bad as I thought it was going to be. I just need to get my hands on Shelgon, Mienfoo and Rufflet and that'll be all the high level Pokémon done.
Just finished trawling through the GTS and have Chimchar and Piplup waiting to be levelled as well as all of the fossil Pokémon resurrected and ready to go. Hopefully my Fennekin->Turtwg trade will have gone through tomorrow as well.
National Pokédex: 517
Also while looking around the XY section of the main site, I discovered the ingame Jigglypuff->Bisharp trade. Aaargh. That could have saved me some time!
