    But how can you reach 170 without being able to obtain the traded evolutions? Is it possible to get gengar and the others without trading?
    Rhodey 12 Sep 2023 11:04
    Trade evos are not counted in the 170, don't go for them

    Não vou conseguir o Wynaut porquê vendi o Lax Incense sem saber que era necessário... Eu desisto.

    I created a guide/checklist for this achievement, which helps people mark off which Pokémon they have caught, what remains, and some notes on ways to get/find/evolve them. The guide provides a link to the checklist on Google Sheets, which tracks how many you have to provide a quick view on what is left to get this achievement. It also provides notes on how to prevent getting locked out of the achievement. I hope this helps people out!

    If I catch Pokémons in offline mode, do they count towards the achievement? And if so, does it mean that I lost It?
    nahuelescobar 29 Sep 2023 15:21
    I think yeah, you need at least have wifi when you catch the last one to pop the achievement, so you don't lose it yet

    Thanks bdjeffyp. That checklist was incredibly helpful and very well put together. Highly recommend everyone to use that!

    That Safari Zone is the worst lol. It always seems to cause me problems! Chansey and Tauros were a nightmare to catch!

    Thanks bdjeffyp! If you just need a checklist, TLDR of bdjeffp's guide.

    - Some Pokemons (and it's evolutions) are versions exclusives. You won't find and you don't need: Vulpix, Sandshrew, Bellsprout, Pinsir, Magmar, Staryu, Slowpoke, Marill, Misdreavus, Sneasel, Remoraid and Mantine.

    - There's no need for Trading. You can forget about these Pokemons: Alakazam, Gengar, Golem, Machamp, Steelix, Scizor, Kingdra, Politoed and Porygon2.


    - Just the evolutionary line of the starter you chose.

    - Just one fossil Pokemon and it's evolution (Omanyte or Kabuto) + Aerodactyl.

    - The legendaries: Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo and one of the Roaming Dogs (Entei if you choose Bulbasaur, Raikou if you choose Squirtle and Suicune if you choose Charmander). Save your Master Ball for one of the Dogs, they tend to use Roar, except for Suicune.

    - You gotta breed some Pokemons, ready your Ditto for this. You need: 2 Eevees for obtaining the other eeveelutions you didn't choose, 2 Tyrogues for the other hitmons, Pichu, Elekid, Togepi, Smoochum, Cleffa, Igglybuff and Wynaut (your Wobbuffet needs to breed while holding the Lax Incense).

    - Some Pokemons evolve via Friendship/Happiness. Those you need include: Crobat, Blissey and Togetic. NOTE: Espeon and Umbreon are not available in Pokemon Fire/Red and Leaf/Green.

    - There are only 2 wild Snorlax in the game (routes 12 & 16), so, 2 chances only.

    - Some are simply presented to you, like Lapras, so they are impossible to miss.

    - Mind that 2 gen Pokemons only show up in Sevii Islands when you beat the Elite Four for the first time + a minimum of 60 Pokedex entries.

    - Best place for level up Pokemons that requires a high Level to evolve (like Dragonair, Pupitar and Rhyhorn) is battling the trainers near the Ember Spa in One Island.

    all that is left for me is a lot of egg hatching and then Safari zone captures

    You're the man, bdjeffyp! Fantastic guide and spreadsheet.
    NeoZeroDestiny 12 Jan 2024 03:21
    how can i have vaporeon, jolteon and flareon same time ??, exist 3 eevee in the game for each one?? or how is it works
    rhas777 12 Jan 2024 03:28
    @NeoZeroDestiny

    There's a daycare in Sevii Islands (Four Island). Leave your Eevee and a Ditto there. Wait for them to hatch 2 eggs. Done.
