Problem Trading For Certain Pokemon In HeartGold?

0 votes

I have been trading using Wi-fi to get Pokemon for my Heart Gold game. Today I noticed something odd about the list of Pokemon that I could trade. This was when I was both Seeking and looking to trade the Pokemon I have Deposited. Certain Pokemon were not on the list, while their final evolved stages were. I wanted to get a Bagon or Shelgon, but neither name was on the list. Although their final evolved form, Salamence, was on the list. Is there any particular reason for this?

Yes because you can only search for Pokemon you have seen on your Pokedex. Sorry it's just the way it works.

Thank you for answering. Quite honestly I am really disappointed. How do I find the other pokemon to fill out the Dex?
You'd have to trade for the evolved version and then breed for the youngest evolution of that family.  That's really the only way, although the Safari Zone is a good place to find younger members of a lot of Gen 3 and Gen 4 families, so check out the Safari Zone for more information: http://www.serebii.net/heartgoldsoulsilver/safarizone.shtml
