Gotta Catch ‘Em All

Pokemon! I was digging through some old NES manuals and documents today and found something amazing. This is my Pokemon Diploma.

Hmm that isn’t awfully readable. Here’s an enhanced version.

After extensive trading I acquired all 150 Pokemon required to earn a completed PokeDex in Pokemon Yellow. After that I borrowed my cousin Matt’s Gameboy Printer and got my Diploma. All in all this was arguably a more difficult task than getting my college diploma.

[UPDATE: This is actually my diploma from Pokemon Silver. That means I caught 251 to get this! I'll admit there was probably some Gameshark use in order to get the Mew and Celebi.]
