First of all, sorry my english (Google traductor)
Uhmm, to get pokÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â©dex 100% completed Ditto's glitch is needed, and you need to don't fight with 13 trainers, because it's the number of pokÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â©mon that you can get only trading. There are the pokÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â©mon:

The Pokedex achievements for the Pokemon games do not require the Pokemon you cannot acquire in a single playthrough of the game as there is currently no way of emulating the link cable correctly. And, everyone who creates achievements for the site try to stay away from glitches as they were not meant to be in the game in the first place, hence no Missingno achievement for Red and Blue.

I tried to get the 'Gotta Catch 'em All' achievement, but it doesn't work. I have collected 128 of the 146 PokÃ©mon you can see.
Missing ones are
- Version exclusive in Red/Blue: Weedle, Kakuna, Beedrill, Ekans, Arbok, Meowth, Persian, Koffing, Weezing, Jinx, Electabuzz, Magmar
- Don't want to evolve:
Jolteon, Flareon (Eevee evolutions), Kabuto, Kabutops (fossiles), Hitmonchan (dojo) ( or respective ones: Vaporeon, Omanyte, Omastar, Hitmonlee )
- Only evolve with trade:
Alakazam, Machamp, Golem, Gengar
While the achievement for Red and Blue unlocks directly after catching or evolving the last PokÃ©mon, nothing happens here.

You can actually get a Machamp in Yellow version through an in-game trade. Trade a Cubone for a Machoke in the Route 5 entrance of the Underground Tunnel. It will evolve into a Machamp upon completing the trade. Hopefully, this should get you the one that you're missing.

Oh holy *%&". I have read this dialogue, but thought I don't need the Machoke. I really didn't expect it to evolve directly after the trade. And even the above mentioned resource of gamefaqs pokemon list states :"Found: Can only be obtained through evolution.:" without telling you about the in game trade possibility.
I am very sorry for this oversight on my side. Thank you very much for the clarification msdmario. It worked and works without any problem.

Yes thanks msdmario, it helped me too :)

Well I have 130 cuahgt PokÃ©mon (including Mew), so maybe Mew is the cause that its not triggering for me?
Posted: 15 Feb, 2015 20:57
Yeah, I heard it won't unlock if you have Mew, which is just silly IMO.

This is pretty minor but it's rather mystifying. Whenever a window pops up (menu, dialogue, etc) the background shifts down one pixel. However, I tried using the same version (1.8.0) of vanilla VBA-M and it doesn't do this, and as far as I can tell all the settings are the same on both. It doesn't do this if the WIN 0 layer is diasbled, but then I can't see the menu. A minor bug but it's pretty annoying.
I tested it with the PokÃ©mon Yellow , Blue and Red

When I defeated Brock on the normal mode the achievement popped, I decided to play in hardcore mode. I did defeated Brock again and Misty but didn't get hardcore achievements? What went wrong? Thank you
EDIT: Reload works. But still no "I Can Hear the Ocean"-hardcore achievement.

So... say you were doing the missing no glitch and it managed to put you in a place to unlock an achievement... is it okay? XD
