Question from nacholibre92

Can you get previous gen Pokemon before National Dex?

I've seen a couple of videos where there are people who have Pokemon like Zangoose, Latios, Latias and Vibrava which you can't get in the Dream World before they obtained the National Dex. I've read that you can't get previous gen Pokemon that are not in the Dream World until you beat the game the first time. I'm confused here.

No, you have to finish the game story and also have to have the national dex. Only then can you get previous gen games, you have to go into a builiding called pokeshifter.

You need to beat ghetsis and get the national dex before any pokemon can from other generations can be encountered. After the national dex, pokemon from other regions can be captured using the poke transfer, and some are rare in the wild.

It's not possible on your own, but if you have previous gen Pokemon on another already finished Black/White game, it is possible to trade these over to the game without the National dex. (Friend abused my game to trade a ludicrously breeded Cubone and Taillow to his game after the 2nd gym)

Actually, you can get previous generation Pokemon from the DW. I got a Misdreavus and a Skorupi there.

If you don't have a National Dex, you can only get last Gen Pokemon via Trade, or in the Dream World. It's impossible, otherwise. However, if you get the National Dex after having last Gen Pokemon, the Pokemon's data will be pre-recorded for you.

Yes by trading other users or from the Dream World. In BW1 you only find previous pokemon after you beat the Elite 4.

Actually, yes! You can.

You can search up the GTS Negotiations. I got a Shiny Mewtwo through the GTC, and I didn't have a National Pokedex yet. Now I do, but it's possible!
