PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I recently bought and finished ORAS and I thought that maybe it was time I'd try and complete the pokedex so I can get that charm ( or whatever it's called, sorry ;~;) that gives you a larger chance to catch shiny Pokemon.

I have a few questions about that, though.

  • Do I need to trade to get the other starters? / Do I need all the starters?

  • Are all the additional starters from the other regions required ( The 3 or so sets you get after beating the elite 4 )

  • Do all the legendary Pokemons count? Like the ones you need the legendary from both OR and AS to get and such?

The charm that increases the chance of a shiny is called the shiny charm. It's that simple.

  • You will need to trade to get one of the three Hoenn starters you did not pick (Treecko/Mudkip/Torchic). However, from my experience you can get them fairly readily from Wonder Trade, but if you don't want to gamble then just use the GTS.

  • Yes, all starters are required. You will have to trade with a friend, use Wonder Trade, or use the GTS to catch them all.

  • You will need all Legendary Pokémon except the Mythical Pokémon. These are Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Deoxys, Manaphy, Phione, Shaymin, Darkrai, Arceus, Victini, Meloetta, Genesect, Volcanion, Diancie, and Hoopa. You will need all of the other Legendaries.

In order to complete the National Dex you have to have owned at least one of every Pokémon species at some point in your game. You do not need to have every single Pokémon at once. (e.g. you don't need a Venonat and a Venomoth at once, you can catch a Venonat and then evolve it.) One thing I suggest, especially for getting Legendaries, is to trade Legend-for-Legend. Put a Dialga on the GTS, ask for Kyogre, get Kyogre, put Kyogre on the GTS, ask for Tornadus, etc.

Good luck!

Thanks! What exactly is the GTS, though? Can't say I've ever heard of it. I just recently started playing Pokemon again. The last Pokemon games I played were Diamond and Pearl on the DS and Sapphire on the gameboy.
Ah, that would be the Global Trade Station. You can access it from the PSS (the yellow screen beside Super Training and Pokémon-Amie).
Is Deoxys still considered mythical?
I think so, even though it's available in the Delta Episode.
