I've kind of been completing it slowly over time, on Alpha Sapphire I've seen 211 and caught 188 in the Hoenn dex and I've seen 471 and caught 371 in the National dex so far.

I don't consider this mini-modding. The closest I saw in the rules to "Don't mimi-mod" is "Don't be a rule-lawyering smart-ass.". It doesn't say "Don't post a link to a certain thread when another user makes a thread about the exact same thing". But thanks.
