I have borrowed some Ultra Beasts to attempt to complete my Alolan Dex.. but, after more than 14hrs of waiting and counting I'm starting to question my PH life.

Show hidden content
Like,

Do I still have any Pokémon that I'm missing?

Do I really need Meltan & Melmetal for my Alolan Dex completion?

Do I need to get to the Lab at a specific Server Time or even at the correct weather, perhaps?

Maybe, I should stop refreshing the Lab page too much and wait a bit more before each refresh?

Should I go to the "Town" tab > Lab or go to the "Town" page and go to the Lab from there?

Should I leave a space in my Party before going to the Lab as well.. or not?

Why does Professor Rowan hates me so much (at the moment) then?
:,(

I know that I don't actually need to have Meltan or Melmetal to get my Alolan Dex completed.. but, I'm starting to doubt that fact as well. :B

And, because I'm starting to get nervous since I only borrowed the Pokémon that I needed for this so-called Alolan DeX completion.. that I'm holding onto their Pokémon for who knows how long. :S




I won the "Event Spriting Contest" as it says on News Announcement #224.

I'm experiencing the same problem, it's been 4 hours since I completed the Alola dex. ^^"

I'm having the same, except mine has been 12 and it shouldn't matter whether you're borrowing or not, they still register on the pokedex as yours and don't show as missing.
We're out to just have some fun!!!

I'm sorry, but where does it say that you don't need Meltan/Melmetal?

@CatLady : Sorry. I just based that part from what happened with the other users or what they have posted in their feeds/comments at the Notification Wall.. :O

Some of them are saying that they have completed their Alolan Dex without having Meltan or Melmetal.. yet.

Also seen in the Meltan to Type:Null (on site) ratio in the Ranklist as well.. which makes it even more confusing. :S

It might be that Meltan wasn't necessary, until the first one appeared on site?

@CatLady : Hm. That might be why. :O

But, that'll be kinda unfair in a very weird way.. if that's what really happened then? *sigh* :S

It's what CatLady says.

The Pokedex completion requires you to own all AVAILAVLE Pokemon. Meltan was technically not yet available during midnight, so it didn't count for those who had already filled their Alolan Dex prior to this update.
I don't see it necessarily as "unfair", I think it's more like a special bonus/reward for those who already put effort into their dex completion before this update.

@Riako : Ah. I see.. :(

*shakes fist at those troll technicalities* :/

Thank you for clearing that up though. :)

Well, I mean, if you got this far, then I bet nothing will stop you from getting a Meltan and its evolution very very soon... :) I'm sure there be plenty at the GTS in case you don't want to make use of the Black Friday sale.

@Riako : Yeah, very good point. :) (Y)

At this moment, all prices for those Meltan candies will be skyrocketing.. so, I'll stay away from the GTS for the meantime. Lol. :D

How many Meltan candies are needed to get both Meltan and Melmetal? Is it 3? 2x to get 2 Meltans and 1x to evolve one?

This has nothing to do with the original question/concern, please make a separate thread.
