There's some pokemon I have not yet seen, including Buneary. Now I just looked it up on Serebii and while you can fight a Lopunny, it seems like you can't fight a Buneary and they only appear in Black 2 (I have White 2). So...am I just kinda screwed here? Or have I not read it correctly?

You will have to trade in order to complete the Unova Dex.

All Pokemon games have been in this form where certain Pokemon can only be seen/captured on one game and not the other. So unless you own both versions of the game and 2 DS/DSi/3DS/etc, you won't be able to complete the Unova dex on your own.

I don't remember this being the case with other games. At least you'd see pictures/battle someone with the pokemon even if they couldn't be caught in your game. The lameness is on another level.

Thanks anyway. It was bothering me not knowing WTF was going on.

No way, it's been like this in EVERY Pokemon game ever made. The only times you saw pictures were for legendaries, which they assume most people wouldn't want to trade.

Edit: Actually I'm mistaken, I think gen 4 did let you view them all in one game. But the rest of the games to my knowledge didn't.
You can never be too rich, too good-looking, or too well armed.

But in those other games that did let you see all, it wasn't really worth much just seeing them were they?

Apologies for my ignorance ahead of time as I didn't play Gen 3 and don't remember much of Gen 4.

Yes because you need to see a pokemon before you can find it on the GTS, but in some cases, there are pokemon that you will never see in game so you need to trade with someone who has the opposite game

Ah, I didn't consider that. Since you actually get rewards this time, it makes sense they wouldn't make it so simple. I do remember being able to complete the dex by myself in D/P/Pt, but maybe I'm remembering wrong.

You can complete it on your own in the modified versions of this game though. Which would be Blaze Black and Volt White series.
