  1. Welcome to the fifth week of my Pokémon feature here on Game Podunk! Sorry for taking an unplanned hiatus throughout December! I'm back now. In case you missed the last one, check it out! Stay tuned for future entries coming every Friday morning. ---------------------------- Gotta Catch 'Em All? As of Wednesday, ladies and gentlemen, I am (once again) a Pokémon Master. And as I may have mentioned already, I take my compulsion to the next level by stocking one of every single available Pokémon species in my PC for inventory/future use. That“s right—I“m not just satisfied with filling my Pokédex. Over twenty-five boxes is what it takes to house Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, Venusaur, Charmander, Charmeleon, Charizard...all the way up to #719, Diancie. But I“m not saying this to brag. It“s not a tiny accomplishment, by any means. What I really want to see are more and more people able to accomplish this! The reward you get for completing your Pokédex is the Shiny Charm, an item that allows you to encounter Shiny Pokémon at an increased rate. Since I“m more than a little obsessed with that aspect of “the hunt”, I kind of want everyone, everywhere to reap the benefits! But is it possible for someone just starting out to “catch ”em all”, as it were? Here“s a little something: Have you noticed the popular slogan from the nineties has actually disappeared from the front of the boxes over time? Gotta catch ”em all! was a lot more conceivable when there were only 150, I guess. 719 (for the moment) is an obscene number. As I mentioned in my review, Pokémon ORAS features over twenty Legendary Pokémon, many of whom are not native to the Hoenn region at all. That“s because , assuming players possess X&Y and ORAS both. Here“s the long and short of it, though. Even if you had every game in Generation VI, there are still thirteen Pokémon that are beyond your reach. They are: Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Phione, Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin, Arceus, Victini, Keldeo, Meloetta, Genesect, and Diancie. But...man, all the aforementioned Pokémon took actually going somewhere or purchasing other games to obtain. Like Mew, for example—only three distributions of Mew ever happened in the United States, and the last one happened in 2010 via Wi-Fi. Why has Mew, the original “super-special legendary” from the Red, Blue and Yellow days...remained so elusive?! I still have Pokémon from my “newbie days” in 2006 that I absolutely need to complete my Pokédex, and—to this day—Mew is one of those. So….while completing one“s Pokédex is conceivable thanks to so many Pokémon being available in Generation VI...it“s not easy. You can“t do it without trading something like Diancie away for someone else“s Mew, or something like that. Or finding a Shiny Pokémon that somebody really wants. Etc, etc. Is that disheartening? Does the fact that “catching ”em all” between two carts is...theoretically impossible...turn some or most of you away from the series? Is 719 (again, for now...because #720 Hoopa and #721 Volcanion have yet to even be officially announced by the Pokémon company, despite the modern “cheating scene” finding out about them) too large or intimidating a number for you non-Pokémon fans, casual players, or other ilk that happen to be reading this right now? I“m genuinely curious how you feel about all this, so please do let me know below!
