Can You Complete the Pokedex Only Using Surprise Trade?

    It honestly feels like people now are being a lot more generous in surprise trades. It might be because it’s becoming easier to get shinies, which is in no way a bad thing, but I’ve noticed more non hacked shiny Pokémon, and just really good late game Pokémon being traded in this generation than in previous generations. It’s really nice to see people helping strangers out with filling out the Pokédex, even if it’s just because they have extras. I remember when people would just release the extra Pokémon and it always made younger me feel a little sad.

      @Henry Drozda Simply owning them? From what I've gathered, no. But if you decide to use them in competitive, then there's a problem. If you ever feel like your account will be threatened by owning one though, then you can always simply release the pokemon.

      @H D Usually hacks are pretty obvious. 6IV shiny hidden ability rare pokemon with a website name are commonplace with hacked pokemon. There are some more subtle ones, but generally hacked pokemon look too good to be true. As for "invalid" I've actually been capitalizing off of a hacked Ditto that was surprise traded to me. All of the offspring have been legitimate with my name and ID on it, so you should be fine.

    I enjoyed this video. I saw the title and was like "Well Obviously the answer is yes." And then Mikey said that he didn't want to waste hours upon hours of his life randomly trading and I just laughed because yeah, that is EXACTLY how I wasted a summer when I got OmegaRuby to complete the dex. I can imagine completing the paldean dex is going to be time consuming this way.

      @Damien Earl some minor differences. like you can't do anything while waiting for your trade which is why it took me a whole summer to complete the dex. However because I do not care about whether or not the pokemon I get are hacked or not, I just found a twitch account that trades out hacks and you can try and match up with them to get what you want.

    When referring to the "johtoian" Wooper or any Pokemon form that isn't the regional variant, we should be saying the "National Form"
    Cause if you catch one in SInnoh, its not exactly Johtonian - it has nothing to do with Johto, but it is in that form nationally except for specific regions, which have the other form

      I actually did a wonder trade bingo with a friend today, and to both our surprise neither of us ended up with a Paradox Mon, since they seem to be fairly common based on similar vids I've seen here. I did end up picking up a Website Shiny, though... And my friend and I ended up matching for a trade, which was hilarious given the odds of that happening.

    This was actually really fun and fascinating as I had a similar experience. I wanted to start my playthrough with a shiny Sprigatito and bred with a Lechonk, surprise trading the breedjects. I got so many new 'mons, including a foreign Ditto, and got ~100 dex entries in 162 trades. Also, with the special raid pokemon, if you're like me and suck at doing raids, just wait a few hours after the raid starts and do some trades. I got 5 Froakie the day the Greninja raid started!

      @mirage I don’t know much about them myself, but I’ll do my best to explain. “Website or hacked shinies” to my understanding are Pokémon that come from websites that place them into the games through outside means such as modded consoles or computers. They often have perfect IV’s and natures and tend to be named a specific nickname after the website. Although they may not always be nicknamed that. Sometimes they’re easy to spot. Other times, they’re a lot better hidden. The reason these are bad are they were put into the game illegitimately and can sometimes be considered illegal. (Not like breaking the law illegal, but illegal in terms of competitive battling.) They are also considered illegal if they are shinies that cannot be normally obtained like the GEN 9 legends since those are shiny-locked in-game.

    Well at least you and me have one thing in common. Full odds shiny torantula in Pokémon Violet, first shiny as well 😊

    I always trade out repeat catches from raids. Never know, you could give something useful to someone 😊

    Sometimes I actually mass breed starters/trade evos/exclusives and surprise trade them to people in case they don’t have people to play with and/or don’t use Reddit or something to find them (also things like scorbunny and charmander in case people missed those events) just because I’ve been in their shoes just hoping and praying lol.

    6:48 my first full odds shiny was shiny skiddo which I evolved into gogoat. This happened exactly a week ago.

    The fact you didn't get 20 froakies is the most shocking thing to me. I got five in a row just trading them back and forth before I got anything that wasn't froakie

    Paranoid checking what ball the tatsugiris were in to see if you got one of my Love Ball Droopies, ha! Glad to see other people are trading out This Generation's Best Pokemon, I've never received one back myself.

    I like catching good Pokemon and surprise trading them away on the off chance that they go to someone who needs them for their dex, or just wants one. Fully embracing the "surprise" part of the trade. XD

    it's always going to be impossible to complete 100% of the pokedex but at least you got quite far

    Technically every non friend trade that gives you a good thing can be defined as a "surprise"
    So yes regardless

      Yep. Took far too long to complete the entries for the other game. Took a lot of Eiscue to get the Scarlet exclusives.

    Hey MandJTV, the DLC could have mega-Evolution(based on the fact/& theory Kalos is literally top righ of Paldea) I would keep the Shiny Gengar in Scarlet for a shiny Mega Gengar(which a friend of my from High-School named it King Boo)

    Wow. My first full odds shiny was at the start of the game when I just started and it was a shiny tarountula.

    I actually did this for most of the Pokédex. Then I used the Austin John universal codes for the legends and paradox.

    i used surprise trade to fill out my dex in violet as best i could. by the time i gave up and switched to link trade, i'd gotten every scarlet exclusive excpet for five: Koraidon, Armourouge, Slither Wing, Sandy Shocks, and, of all things, Stunky. Those first four made sense - the box legendary, an evolution that needed a version-exclusive item, and two of the rarer paradox forms, but Stunky?? that was unexpected lmao

    The fact that I was watching dimension 20 right before this video and I’m pretty sure the exact campaign to being fantasy high is hilarious

    I like that you found tarountula, because 6 days ago I found a full odds tarountula looking for a murkrow so I could get sucker punch on my kingambit for raids

    I’m honestly surprised there weren’t any Froakie’s being traded due to the Greninja event
