Hello everyone,

I have scoured the internet for many hours and I cannot find a single, clear answer to this question:

What Pokemon Games are needed to catch all the legal Pokemon, not counting event Pokemon and illegal Pokemon?

I want to know which games I can use to get all the Pokemon, not including event or illegal Pokemon. I am not interested in the GTS trades at this point, because there are so many hacked Pokemon.

I have the following Games, which I have recently bought (they are hard to find it seems):
Ruby, Sapphire, Firered
Pearl
Heart Gold, Soul Silver
White, White 2, Black 2

Please answer clearly, also because no doubt many people will come to this page from google since I have taken care to tag the post carefully.

Thank you for your time, I really appreciate it!

Before I answer, I need to know if you plan on including starter Pokémon? Because, if you are, that would make a large difference.

the first few Pokémon have extra information just because this should really be taken into account
You can catch all other Pokémon with your combined games. The Pokémon listed above are just the rarest>>>the Legendary Pokémon. As for zoroark, you can obtain N's zorua in black/white2.

No Gen III games are needed; only Gen IV & V games are needed to obtain all Pokemon (legendaries and Kanto + Hoenn starters).

I'll list the hard(er) to obtain legendaries. You need:

Heart Gold & Soul Silver
- Both Lugia & Ho-oh are obtainable in just one of these editions
- Mewtwo
- Legendary Dogs (cats?)
- Weather Trio; Kyogre & Groudon are only available in one edition, and both are needed for Rayquaza
+ Kanto & Hoenn starters (one from each game, so you need to either trade or restart a game in order to get all 3).

Platinum
- Giratina, Palkia & Dialga

Black & White
- Tornadus & Thundurus are version exclusive, both needed to obtain Landorus
Black 2 & White 2
- White Kyurem & Black Kyurem

Well, I guess you only need either Black 2 or White 2, since you can transfer either Zekrom or Reshiram from BW to fuse with Kyurem.

There are some legendaries available in multiple games, e.g. Lake Trio are available in Platinum & B2W2, and Sword trio are available in all Gen V games.

Note: you will either need to trade for some starters, or restart some games to get them.

Legendary Beasts not dogs
Ah right; I just heard them called Dogs once, and forgot that they were called Beasts as well.
what is the sword trio?
Musketeer trio, i.e. Cobalion, Virizion & Terrakion.

Looks like you have all that is needed, for getting all the non-event Pokemon. HG/SS and B/W2 are set up so you can get Pokemon like Rayquaza and the Regi-trio.

HG and SS are gen 4's gen 1-3 replacement games. They have most of the gen 1-3 legendaries. Seen here.
While B/W2 picks up where HG/SS left off. (The Regi-trio) Seen here.

This is because that most people don't play the gens 1-3 games any more and are unable to transfer valuable Pokemon to gens 4, 5, and now gen 6.
