How I finished the Brilliant Diamond Pokedex in one day

I wanted to catch all the pokemon, so I did before everyone.

    I changed the clock on my switch to get drifloon and it spawned when I restarted the game. Probably paused other events but drifloon does spawn if you change the clock 😊

    Toughing it out isn't new, it might be new for diamond and pearl, but it's been around since sun n moon or earlier. It's frienship based, so if you care for your pokemon, they migbt attack twice, dodge, or tough it out

    It’s mental how the slogan of the game is gotta catch ‘em all but without 2 versions of the game and 2 consoles to trade between it’s not possible.

    YOU completed the pokedex on Brilliant Diamond so that WE don't have to. Now that we know what happens if you do, most of us won't bother anyway :D I honestly don't think they thought this through because they probably expected nobody will complete the whole pokedex in another few years.

    Carnivine doesn't need 6 badges to be caught, I caught it after I beat the fourth gym leader. Also I cheesed Cynthia by swapping between Dialga and Togekiss for her Garchomp (uses poison jab for Togekiss, and earthquake or dragonclaw for Dialga so swap to the other since poison doesn't affect Dialga and dragon and ground types don't work on Togekiss).

    I still get over how there’s sinnoh Pokémon that can’t be catch or even not required for the Pokédex completion, even in the remakes. Seriously what the point of introducing your new Pokémon if you don’t include in the region’s Pokédex. Why can’t the Pokédex be more like Hgss or Oras where they got the originals and some new ones.
