Still that is quite a lot of data to store. Do you think a single game cartridge could hold all that data?

Are we counting all the Spinda forms in our completed Dex?

"Some of Spinda's Pokédex entries mention the odds of two Spinda having the same spot pattern as less than one in four billion. Since Spinda's spots are based on its personality value (a 32-bit number), a simplistic model would put the odds at 1 in 4,294,967,295, which is indeed smaller than one in four billion; however, it is actually possible for two personality values to produce spot patterns that are visually identical, so the real odds are somewhat higher." --Bulbapedia

 

Pokémon Bank holds 1 500 Pokémon so you would need 2 863 312 Pokémon Bank accounts to store all those Spinda.

Does anyone have an archived copy of The Awesomest TLR Spoof?  I'm missing chapters 14 onwards and would be eternally grateful to anyone who could help me out here.

Well, if you're only mentioning filling in the Pokedex, anyone with an action replay can get everything... :P

I remember that for Gen 5 the AR'ed Dex had all shiny forms, and it may have had the foreign language entries too. I'll have to check my game again sometime.

But yeah, hunting for forms is rather pointless. I got the 26 letter Unown in FireRed, and all 28 in HeartGold, and by the end of each set I was doubting my sanity.

Doesn't Pokebank hold 3000 Pokemon, or am I recalling wrong? ._.

I actually got all 28 on my LeafGreen. Even the ! and ? Unowns with their 1% appearance rate. So much fun...

Well in the case of forms you'd only have to see said form for it to be added to your pokedex and that Poodle Pokémon's different hair cuts do not register, so not sure if Spinda's many forms would each register or just the first four(One for each gender and color). If it did save every single change that would be exponentially the largest single entry in the entire pokedex. You are talking one form for each of the vast many of forms multiplied by 4. Though since Spinda's different patterns are not actual form changes, that could be why. Though that butterfly pokemon with the different wing patterns based on capture region will record each color change. I own 3 or 4 I think. Then again, due to it's appearance being regional over Spinda's PV way of creating it could change how if at all the looks are recorded.

You're right, my mistake.  You only need 1 431 656 accounts.

Glad it's so much more realistic a goal :P

Remember though, unless you want to keep every single pokemon, you only have to see it on your game or own it for a single moment in time. Any new versions you can always Wonder trade away...

 

P.S. Took some doing but I now have every known shiny version of Vivillon on my Pokemon X. The species does not discriminate between genders only Shiny or not. So some alternate forms may not duplicate based on gender. This could reduce the previous calculated value, though maybe not by much...

Also Vivillon seems to be the only pokemon with a pokeball pattern where the shiny variant does not change the red to blue. This is because Vivillon's wings don't change color when becoming shiny. Only it's body does. Where as Normal Vivillon have black/gray on their bodies, Its shiny variant is all white.
