    How do you bring it to the devs' attention that this needs to be tagged as missable?
    ZeroHabilidade 20 May 2023 23:15
    does evolving a Rattata into Raticate count as "Catching" both of them?
    JohnZombi 28 Jul 2023 12:23
    @Zero yeah you just have to get the Pokedex entries
    deano82 9 Sep 2023 20:48
    What about ones like the other hitmon or the other fossil. I’m playing on an android so can’t really trade

    Asked in the Discord about Mew messing this up and didn't get a reply so I figured it was fine, just a habit to get it even just as an HM dump, does the achievement still break because of it?
    tsyque 16 Sep 2023 20:30
    You should be ok. Looks like the achievement is coded to exclude Mew from your Pokédex count if you do have Mew. The code was updated in late 2022 to fix this by the looks of it, so after all the messages from people saying it didn’t pop
    telepathos 17 Sep 2023 03:02
    thanks for the clarification (nice Boards of Canada profile pic too)
    telepathos 21 Sep 2023 09:36
    Can confirm, got the achievement after doing mew glitch
    conkerlikeN64 24 Sep 2023 04:16
    does this achievements includes pokemon that can be only obtain by trading (i mean other pokemon that appear in the ohter versions)
    conkerlikeN64 24 Sep 2023 17:38
    also what are the 129 pokemons?
    conkerlikeN64 24 Sep 2023 17:39
    also what does it mean "on a single save file"
    MagicalChef1007 28 Sep 2023 05:08
    @conkerliken64 the 129 are all pokemon avaiable in the game. So the 151, except Raichu, Arbok family, Weezing family, Beedrill family, Persian family, Mew, Jynx, Magmar, Electbuzz, 2 eeveelution, 1 fossil and 1 hitmon, 4 trade evolutions.
    MagicalChef1007 28 Sep 2023 05:15
    Doing the count, I think this achievement doesn't count Machamp, despite it being available in the game. (trade in Route 5.)

    @ConkerliKen64
    he conditions he tells us to catch all 129 Pokémon. So, if you catch the first Pokémon, especially the initial evolution or legendary Pokémon, or Pokémon of the same type, you can check and verify the number of Pokémon you have captured in the 'Gotta Catch 'em All - Yellow' achievements emulator. It will continuously tell you how many you have caught. When you enter the game for the first time, you receive Pikachu alone (1/129). If you catch another Pokémon, whether it's an initial evolution or a Pokémon with only one evolution, or a legendary Pokémon, the number will increase (2/129).

    So Snorlax, 3 legendary birds and Mewtwo are the missable ones.

    Should Electrode also be considered missile because he doesn't show up in random battles? I don't know if he respawns in the PowerPoint after you beat them both?

    Hardest part of this challenge is grinding the money to get coins for Porygon ($200,000 = 9999 coins!)

    Does trading void this set?
    AragornBr 24 Feb 2024 17:48
    @byadhi [Português] Não anula, só que você não conseguir a borda dourada (sem savestate) já que pra troca você usa o savestate
