Mew

How do they intend to catch mew? - unsigned comment from Cathat567 (talkcontribs)

Starter

How can they get one of each of the starter evolutions? There are nine, and they can get 1 each from red and blue and three from each yellow for a total of 8. Or can they restart a cartridge? - unsigned comment from Cmb2xl (talkcontribs)

Probably restarting... I mean, you can technically do it with just two cartridges. The only reason they're using four is that they have four players. George Hutcheon 09:15, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
Well if they're planning on only filling the Dexes and not literally catching each one of them, they could just trade between each other at the appropriate times. In fact, if they literally wanted all the versions to have all 151 Pokémon on them, they'd have to restart multiple times in order to get four Hitmonchans, four Hitmonlees, and four of both fossil Pokémon and four of both of their evolutions. Either that or intense glitching. --Mezase Master 14:19, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
According to the website, the intention is to get all 151 on a single cartridge. George Hutcheon 14:34, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
Oh, in that case, they could get them all with one file each except one form of one of the starters, so that'd only require one restart (although they'll probably do more so R&B can start off with more decent Pokémon). --Mezase Master 15:36, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Lacking?

The article fails to mention that they plan to do it all in one sitting; while it is implied, is would be better to outright state it. Also, I believe the fact that they are not using glitches (except for obtaining Mew) should be mentioned. --SnorlaxMonster 10:43, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Hmm, I'll see to it. George Hutcheon 14:34, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
