How Easily Can You Catch Every Pokemon in Scarlet/Violet?

Published 2022-11-23
With the release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, I took on the challenge of completing the Pokedex as fast as possible, and while I normally attempt this with only the newest Pokemon, I tried to complete the entire Pokedex of all 400 Pokemon. This is how it went. This video took a lot of time and effort to put together, so I'd really appreciate it if you shared this with a friend. If you have any suggestions for the next video, leave it in the comments below! Have a great day :)

    Like this if I should do a Professor Oak’s Challenge for Scarlet and Violet 😅

    Picking Quaxly actually gave you a massive advantage as it’s near impossible to find people who picked quaxly when trying to trade the other 2.
    Edit: Added context for those reading this in the future, my comment refers to pre Scarlet and Violet being on home, so you had to trade to get them.

    Remember for your next attempt:

    Check your Pokédex for registry rewards - you get stones, balls and candies every ten entries

    I’m convinced that Applin is the reason encounter powers from food exist. I searched for one for just about as long as you before giving up and buying an “Encounter Power: Dragon” boosting food. Then suddenly it was if it was autumn and I was thrust into an apple orchard with all the Applin I started finding.

    Finally got around to finishing my pokedex in about 80 in-game hours, and this is the first game I've done that so I think that's a pretty good time. Despite the performance and design flaws, this is surprisingly one of the most fun games in the series in years.
  • @oliverlie788
    actual talent to put 30 hours+ into a 30minute video that is still cohesive AND entertaining
  • @ClarinErinet
    For anyone else watching, there are 2 guaranteed spawns of Applin on the ground so you don't have to bother with trees. Go to Serebii then "map"
  • Everyone at the beginning of the game: wow hating Arven is gonna be super easy, barely an inconvenience
    Everyone at the end of the game: wow hating the writers for putting Arven through SO much pain is super easy, barely an inconvenience.
  • @Erin123473
    The fact that you managed to accomplish this Challenge and edit the video within LESS than a week is ridiculous!
    Love your content and enjoy watching all your Videos ❤
  • @waggshore3777
    It almost certainly took you more than 32 hours. Small Ant discovered that the in game time is calculated through frames, not real world time. He had been playing for 16 hours and the game only logged 14.5 hours due to the drops in framerate. Will be very interesting to see if this can be done in less than 24 hours though!
  • @IzaRDM00
    For anyone having trouble with rarer spawns, using the sandwiches to increase the encounter chance for specific types helps a ton, I found a few applins in less than 3 minutes with dragon encounter level 1
  • @that-guy-pearce
    You can actually find Applin in an area west of Levincia up on a hill that you need a few Miraidon/Koraidon upgrades to get to. It's in a little ditch in the ground full of flowers. Too late for John, but I hope this helps someone else.
  • @Snowstorm174
    I decided that I would finish my dex before watching this video; and now it’s complete! So I not only get the shiny charm, but also the enjoyment of a Johnstone video! Thank you for your service, good sir :D
  • @StickMaster500
    It’s still crazy that with all the new Pokémon introduced into Scarlet and Violet, we have officially past 1000 Pokémon in the National Dex going from #001 to #1010!
  • @alexmiller4006
    He got exreamly lucky at 14:51 when he is sliding down the mountain. His miraidon is actually shiny! This is very rare and only has a 1/4096 chance of happening when doing this gym test.
  • @lampshade6579
    Btw, you don't need a Bisbarp that has a Leaders Crown then evolve it. Just need a Bisbarp to defeat the ones holding it.
  • @brentsta
    I just finished my first Pokédex ever. After playing the series since silver.
    This video amazes me even though it’s the easiest game to complete arguably. Great job
  • The open world-ness was definitely an aid. I was 15 levels above everything almost constantly no matter where I went. I only lost once to the desert titan, and never lost again hahaha. Arceus was much more difficult imo.
  • @THGMR-ox7sd
    At first I hated pawmi’s evolutions because they just stand up and not much changed but now I kinda like them and pawmot changes enough for me to be satisfied even though pawmo is literally pawmi standing up with a lighter colour fur.
    The whole line is cute and they have a move that revives your Pokémon.
  • @boogabooga1468
    Dude, a professor oak challenge in this game is gonna be painful, because basically the entire dex is available before literally everything- yes, you dint even need Koraidon/Miraidon upgrades to get places
