You're not alone. I do the same thing. I never move on until I have at least one of every pokemon available in an area.

I try to catch every Poke I encounter that hasnt been caught yet.

Mostly when Im grinding for level ups I guess. So I dont have to come back to every little route post game.

I don't usually catch every Pokemon in a route before moving on, mostly due to the fact that I won't know what's on every route, and also because I would rather go back and catch them when I'm done with the story. I still take my sweet ass time playing through the story, but that doesn't mean I won't leave an area until I catch everything.
YOU WANT SOME FUNERAL TO GO WITH THAT CAKE?

I hear ya. I usually end up over-leveling some of my pokemon when trying to find the ones with low spawn rates but I love collecting them all and the sooner I can get more, the better. Or it's just OCD like you said. Heh.

I actually have a different playstyle every game.

The most recent examples are: White, where I catch every new Pokemon I see and use lots of buffs and debuffs and Black 2, where I mainly focus on weather and status effects while catching only Pokemon I really want and not using items.

I don't catch evolved Pokemon, but I do catch all of the pre-evolutions.

Any of you go for specific natures, or ev train a bit early on to get that extra little boost in the stat you want? did that in my last platinum run, and felt really op, wasnt overleveled at all either.

I started to do that in B2 with the new handy Habitat List feature in the Pokedex. Hopefully that feature returns in X&Y.
