The same day I made the bit of progress I made a bit more later, so it’s not so much a “bit” anymore. :P
I traded my “Up-Grade” Porygon to Silver for my Silver’s Feraligatr, so Porygon evolved. Of course it wasn’t on Crystal yet so I had to trade it back. But… not yet. I put Feraligatr into the day care to breed it for a Totodile egg, THEN traded it back for Porygon 2. :P I then hatched the egg, getting Totodile, then evolving it at level 18 via the exp. share tactic to Croconaw quickly!
So this list is as follows:
#158 Totodile #159 Croconaw #160 Feraligatr
#233 Porygon2 (Got it now!)
11 more! All of the remaning ones could take a while though…
Entei I have down to within an inch of it’s life, so I “should” have the best shot at catching it. I could cheat this a bit by getting a unused master ball from Gold or Silver over to Crystal via a trade or trade over a caught Entei, but I kind of want to catch it the regular way as a challenge/ test of patience. When I get Entei, I’ll be able to go up Bell Tower for Ho-oh too (Again, I could do a trade, but it’s the challenge factor that intrigues me) Believe it or not, you cannot get Ho-oh unless you catch all the “roaming” Pokemon even if you trade them over as the event to get the Rainbow Wing won’t trigger without all 3 caught natively in the cart.
Celebi will likely be Gamesharked to play the event since you can’t glitch-create a GS Ball and make the event happen to my knowledge. You can glitch-create a Celebi alone, but it’s dangerous and that glitch can be used to generate any Pokemon (thus making anything caught by it not feel legit), plus I’d like to get the event one since it feels more “legit”. Hey, it’s the best thing I can do since Nintendo eventually discontinued the event for it… *grumbles*
Still’ gotta wait on a Remoraid, obviously, unless I dare to try getting one in a non-swarm. But when I do, it’s Octillery time at level 25!
The rest are grinding and/or befriending evolutions. To get Espeon and Umbreon. An Eevee needs to be evolved at morning and night respectively though, which is no big deal once I get their friendship set up. But I must not bungle it or I’ll have to re-raise an Eevee. :P I’ll probably end up Elite 4 training since battling Elite 4 or Gym Leaders increases friendship points as does leveling up. Also, I can’t forget about the haircut brothers as well as Daisy’s grooming. Well, I can… It’ll just take even longer though. I’m tempted to re-catch a Chansey and Golbat with a Friend Ball as that might speed things along (Can’t’ do it with an Eevee since they aren’t in the wild), but that is a stretch since I need Kurt to make them and their catch rate is low.
