I'm surprised that you're still getting an N64 for trading for Pokemon.
As for SuperShaun, did you ever trade? I'll echo sNOwBaLL's sentiments on that one.
And from me, let me put my *somewhat-* valuable input into this. My brother and I have collaborated, so to say, on a Blue version. In that game, I have 129 captured (including Mew, most legendaries). I'm missing the Kabuto-Kabutops combination (2 off), the other two starters (which I'll be getting traded from Yellow, 6), evolved forms of Red-only Pokes (which I just traded from Red not too long ago, 5), some Stone evos (2), Clefairy/Clefable (2), Dragonair (1), Eevee Stones (2), Tauros (which extensive searching in the Safari Zone isn't helping enough yet..., 1), Omastar (1).
Obviously, I've got work to do, but with intense training, and real dedication I can complete it.
So, just train if you can, and trade if you need to. (Sorry I didn't make a real point with that mess.)
It's great to complete a Pokedex! So I'll need some help...
