So has anyone here actually "caught them all?"

Is it even possible? For a series with that as a slogan that's aimed toward younger people, they make it pretty damn hard to do.

Well they stopped using that slogan over 10 years ago when Ruby and Sapphire came out, so it's not really an issue anymore.

Technically no, I have never "caught" them all because a lot of Pokemon are obtained through methods that don't involve Catching of any kind.

But I would say overall I've come pretty close. There are very few Pokemon that I've never owned at some point in time.

When Gen 5 came out I did a Living Pokedex for Gen 5 Pokemon. That's my biggest accomplishment right now.

I haven't yet bothered to evolve everything for my living Pokedex, but I do have a 649/649 in-game Pokedex in Black 2.

Yes. Got the vast majority from HG, Plat, and B/W2. I had to trade for most of the legendaries and some version exclusives, but there really weren't all that many. Dream world also helped.

Yes, and I have bred so that I have the pre-evo's in my box as well. Also, I have Legendaries in all of their forms. 100% (not counting shinies)

This generation I finally succeeded in catching them all. My victory was short lived as a few hours later, they announced the new generation.
I am guilty of being an insufferable smart ass!
Too many people I know would be perfectly content to burn me for a witch.

Not event legendaries, but everything else, yes
Not changing this sig until Celtics beat the Knicks (Probably won't be long though)

Yep, finished my White 2 Pokedex a couple months ago. Thanks to Audino and the Blissey trainers in the White Treehollow, evolving everything becomes easier than it used to be, I think.

EDIT: Er, I guess it was just last month. I thought more time had passed since the Meloetta event.

I caught all 151 (plus missing no. and mew) in the first gen.

I can't remember where i got the mew, but it was a legit trade IIRC.

Anyway, after that..... never again. I thought gen 1 was hard, now there's gonna be what, 800? NO THANKS!
