Diamond Update 9/28

Only a quick update for right now. I just finished transferring a batch of Pokémon from FireRed to the Pal Park and I now have at least the final stage of every evolutionary family from the first 3 Generations transferred to Diamond except for the Johto legendaries and Deoxys. The Johto Legendaries are all stored on my HeartGold cart and I have an event Deoxys in Platinum.

My focus now will be to finish collecting the Sinnoh Pokémon. My Platinum cart has most of them, so between the two games I should be able to finish pretty quickly. Then I can start transferring them all to White 2. I'm not as far from my Shiny Charm as I thought I was! I haven't finished SoulSilver or White yet, but I'm going to focus on actually completing my living pokédex before X and Y are released and come back to them while I wait for Pokémon Bank to be released.

Diamond Update 9/25

I haven't posted an update in a long time! I've been pretty busy with work and other projects, but I'm still attempting to make time for my Pokédex Quest when I can. At this point, I'm not sure if I will be able to complete the entire Pokédex before October 12th, but the News of Pokémon Bank in December gives me a bit of an extension, even if it means putting my Quest aside for X and Y and picking it back up when I have finished the stories in those.

My Diamond game is nearly finished. I collected the rest of the badges and defeated the Pokemon League, then headed straight to the Pal Park. I've been transferring 30 Pokémon everyday from my Gen 3 games to Diamond and arranging them in a living dex in the boxes. The Image below shows an accurate representation of my first 13 boxes. The highlighted Pokémon are the ones I have either caught during the story or transferred from the Gameboy Advance Games. I've been transferring all the evolved forms so that I can just hatch eggs for the unevolved forms.
