Stones? Crystal has a way to get more evolutionary stones that G/S doesn't. Again, more time consuming, OR you can even use a duplication trick.

I've been streaming this game every Saturday for the past 3 weeks and I've gotten so close to getting this achievement in such a small period of time. Really not that bad....... think before you speak/complain.
7 Mar 2:30 2016
I thought the duplication trick only worked on Gold/Silver? Anyway there needs to be a guide on how to get all the pokemon Crystal has available.
7 Mar 4:23 2016
no, it works on Crystal too. As for a guide...I mean, Ognos pretty much posted the list earlier. Kind of just a process of elimination, and serebii and bulbapedia are pretty much created in the interest of having a travel companion guide.
7 Mar 4:24 2016
I'd be willing to maybe create a page that explains how to get each one in the purpose of this achievement, but it just seems kind of redundant, because again, the info is around.
7 Mar 9:42 2016
I can't believe I did this......( )Here you go, a complete guide for this achievement.....I'm insane.
7 Mar 9:58 2016
Sorry about that, I was meant to say a guide of which Pokemon are available which you already pointed out, you didn't really have to go through all the trouble to do that but it's appreciate all the same.
7 Mar 15:46 2016
Here's the thing about me......once I get an idea in my head....I run with it, good or bad, or even if I miss the point. So yeah.....the second this crossed my mind, it was happening, lol.
17 Jul 21:27 2016
can someone please say if i must have, for example, one ratata and one raticate or a ratata envolving to a raticate is enough in order to get this achievement

If you evolve a pokemon, it counts as you owning the evolution and it's pre-evolution. As long as the pokedex has the ball icon, it means you got that pokemon

Would these achievement be affected if I transferred in a Pokemon that I already have got in this version of Crystal(Full Evolution line) Asking because I caught a shiny Bellsprout in another version I was playing.
25 Mar 17:47 2018
a conquista veio quando consegui 205 pokemons na pokedex mas consegui 206 por questo de honra e tambem e a primeira vez que fao 100% nesse game
25 Mar 18:11 2018
so mais uma coisa, tem como voce ter o porygon nesse game voce tem que compra-lo no game corne em celadon city la em kanto bom essa e a unica dica que vou dar o resto voce vai ter que descobrir sozinho
27 Feb 16:23 2019
Is it possible to get this achievement if I have already traded a few pokemon to evolve them (like Alakazam and Gengrar)? Can I just catch and/or evolve the ones that are missing from the 206 mandatory ones for this achievement?
18 Apr 17:28 2019
mines just unlocked at 205. I was missing lapras btw. The last pokemon I got was hitmontop if that helps.

12 Sep 8:50 2019 Just incase you need help with what 206 pokemon you need. Message me if you need help. :D
18 Sep 18:25 2019
Finally I got this one! It was kind of a nice challenge, but also a bit unnecessarily tedious.A big thanks goes to SlimKirby for their guide.
18 Sep 18:29 2019
The HEADBUTT pokemon are very easy to get if you know which trees to use it on. If you check the "Headbutt Tree" section of Bulbapedia you'll know what I mean.Also, make full use of the clock exploit(at your mom's) for evostones and clock reset.
