Pokedex Completion Questions

#1shinexcelPosted 2/8/2014 10:19:29 AM
Going for the national pokedex completion/shiny charm! There are a couple of questions that I do have though.

1. When completing the Pokedex, does one have to have the kalos pentagon/icon for it to count towards completion? I notice that an omanyte/omastar that I traded for over GTS has a big pokeball like some of the legendaries do. Will that be an issue?

2. I keep hearing that you only need 706 pokemon to complete the dex as some of the legendaries/event pokemon do not count towards the national completion. What pokemon might those be?

3. Can't think of a legit third question, but I figured my list would be more official looking if it had at least three questions?

Thanks for your help!

Sorry to hijack your topic XD, but for the charms do you need to just see the Pokemon or actually catch them?

Answer for number 2 is, I hear you don't need to have the event legendary Pokemon.

For the kalos dexes, they need to have the kalos symbol. banking them doesn't count.

No they don't, I don't have a Kalos Weavile owned in my Dex and I have Shiny Charm. It's only for the Kalos Dex "owned" completion part, which doesn't matter for anything besides the crown by its Dex.

1) No... Most pokemon cannot even be found in Kalos.

2) Mew, Jirachi, Deoxys, Genesect, Victini, Moloetta, Darkrai, Arceus, Shaymin, Manaphy, Phione, Celebi, Keldeo

The ones you don't need for the National Dex are the event-exclusive legendaries and Phione.
