    It's been a long time coming, but I think it's about time to get this started. This project aims to collect all information about ways to obtain Pokémon in mainseries compatible games other than standard wild 'mons. We'll be cross referencing every available source, checking anything that can still be checked, and generally trying to assemble the bits and pieces of the puzzle into one organized database, which will be freely available and used to correct Smogon's learnsets, simulator learnsets, move legality, and most likely add the biggest thing veekun's missing to their brilliant collection of information.

    The first step will be finding as many sources as possible. I've been on the lookout for them forever, but there will be many I am unaware of so please help. Then we'll be scraping and organizing each source into a consistent form for easy comparison (well.. first create a sensible syntax for them), comparing them all and trying to work out what is correct, then finally putting together a massive list of everything.

    Gen 1
    -Ingame special encounters
    --ingame testing, some here.
    -Repeatable external events
    --Stadium 1 specials
    -Other events
    --Mew? Were there more?

    Gen 2
    -Ingame special encounters
    --ingame testing, some here.
    -NYPC events
    --I've done a lot of work on this already, collected here. Will want to go over everything again and include extra info, plus try and find more sources (bulbapedia (species specific pages+event list, sometimes inconsistent), psypokes, maybe others could be scraped?).
    -Repeatable external events
    --Stadium 2 specials
    -Other events
    --Were there any?

    Gen 3
    -Ingame special encounters
    --Needs writing up from scratch pretty much? Trades, gift pokemon, overworld sprites..
    --Collo/XD snag pokemon (http://www.pkmdb.com/NGC-Colosseum-Event-Downloads)
    --Poké Spot pokemon
    -Repeatable external events
    --Box, bonus discs
    -Events
    --Loads of them. Gold Ursaring's guide, PokemonGTS thread, serebii's event DB, bulbapedia (species specific pages+event list, sometimes inconsistent), project pokemon (?), pokemonDB.

    Gen 4
    -Ingame special encounters
    --Needs writing up from scratch pretty much? Trades, gift pokemon, overworld sprites..
    -Repeatable external events
    --Ranger games stuff, PBR code 'mons, Ranch pokemon.
    -Events
    --Loads of them. But well documented at least. PokemonGTS thread, serebii's event DB, bulbapedia (species specific pages+event list, sometimes inconsistent), project pokemon (?), pokemonDB.

    Gen 5
    -Ingame special encounters
    --Needs writing up from scratch pretty much? Trades, gift pokemon, overworld sprites..
    -Repeatable external events
    -Events
    --Should be very well documented. PokemonGTS thread, serebii's event DB, bulbapedia (species specific pages+event list, sometimes inconsistent), project pokemon (?).
    -Dream World
    --Nexus's list: http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3454925
    --The Jp. list (needs an autotranslator): http://www23.atwiki.jp/pkmnbw/pages/133.html#id_cbc5bede

    So. This is quite a gargantuan project. But, in my opinion, definitely worth doing. I'm going to need some help if this is going to be finished within the foreseeable future, if there are people here up for helping out I'll start creating some sync.in pages with instructions for each. Probably the ones which require the least direction will be the ingame special encounters, and given that I'll be away from the 21st-28th of this month, that's probably a reasonable place to start.

    Here's our general sync.in pad: http://sync.in/72bKpEc2Tu
    I'll be keeping that, not this post, up to date. Go there.

    Be aware that pkmdb Colosseum pkm to download are edited.
    First, it's impossible to have both starters untouched with same OT/ID and anyway the experience those have when you start the game is wrong.
    Most accurate on 3rd Gen Events are Secure/GoldUrsaring Faq
