Can you fill your Pokedex using Wonder Trade?

Filling up the Pokedex is pretty much the thing I strive for in every game, and sometimes there will be like 10 pokemon I just can't find and eventually have to trade for.

My question is, if you receive a Pokemon you don't own through WT, does it give you an entry for said Pokemon?

yeah they count but you'll be better served using the GTS it's that your plan seeing as you can search for pokemon that aren't in your dex

It's far from practical, considering all the Bunnelbies you're likely to get. But yes, theoretically, this will work.

In theory you could get your starter and then wonder trade endlessly (unless the game restricts you to needing another pokemon in the party or something) to complete the entire dex when the pokebank comes out.

But I'd imagine this would take a very long time with the repeated caterpie/weedle/scatterbugs you'll be seeing. And it would be some miracle if you ever picked up an event pokemon in this way. But anything is possible.
