    I'm doing a shameless nerd post after having a conversation with a friend who declared she caught all 150 pokemon back when red and blue came out and is unofficially a pokemon master (because she didn't know you had to talk to some dude in the game for it to be official).

    Sadly, I was the only one out of my cousins who had pkmn for the GB (blue version) so I couldn't trade with anyone to get the red-only pokemon. So I never became a pkmn master. icon_sad.gif

    Has anyone here caught all 150 pokemon from the red and blue version?

    yes, i did catch all 151 pokemon. mew was part of the original set and had a pokedex entry in red/blue/yellow... not to mention he's mentioned in the cinnabar island notes.

    He's right. The original was 151. Mew was a part of the very first wave of pokemon.
    Also it's 100% impossible to catch all the pokemon in any generation without having to trade with a different version, so technically nobody really "caught" them all. Though I've traded so I did have all of them.
    Yay for being a nerd.

    Pokemon Masterrr! I remember being in elementary school with a gamelink cable in the portables with buddies just trading our Pokemon to fill it up... I got 150 Pokemon, but I couldn't catch Mew naturally.

    Don't you need an event to catch one?

    I had 146 in my original Red version when the unthinkable happened...


    I left my Gameboy in my jacket pocket and my mother washed it with my laundry.... The memory chip was knocked loose on the game - I was never able to save it again. I ever tried re-soldering it (Yeah, I was a smart little 11 year-old), but, alas, I ended up using that game to trade the starters to other games. I could play, but not save it.

    Funny that the show is almost 20 years old.


    no. it debuted in the states in 1998. clearly you were watching the show instead of doing your math homework.

    are we really gonna rehash old wounds?! haha It was fucking hard to catch them all icon_sad.gif. Either way I think Pokemon was at its best when there were only 251 (or was it 252?) lol

    I managed to get 149 with blue and red, but for the life of me I could never catch a Tauros in the Safari Zone, it was only until a cousin from the US came over to my house and traded me one from the yellow version that I could finally get all of the Pokemon (minus Mew).

    Apparently there is a glitch to catch Safari pkmn outside of the safari. And a different glitch to catch Mew.

    No sadly I didn't have anyone to trade with either so only had all the ones you could catch in the Blue version, but I saw all 150 so that counts in my book!

    Via cheating I did catch all 150, but only cause I had no one to trade with.
