    My kids 3DS's both have 130 Pokemon and don't seem to be downloading any more.

    They leave their 3DS's on spot pass whenever not actually playing, but it's been almost 2 weeks since they received any new ones. The connection is fine I've tested that, it's set up to allow new Pokemon, wireless is on etc.

    It's my understanding that there is 150 for the 3D Pokedex is that correct ? They currently have 130.
    Any ideas why they are not receiving new Pokemon ?

    Go into the 3DS settings, set your day one day forward, you should receive the next set of Pokemon and switch back to today's date so tomorrow you shall also receive your Pokemons.

    I've experienced this before. Hopefully it should work. =)

    There's 152 unique pokémon, but the alternate forms for each species also count as unique entries, such as the 4 season forms for deerling and sawsbuck, and the male/female forms of jellicent and frillish, and the red/blue stripe forms of basculin. As well as the normal/zen modes for darumaka.

    So really there's 160+ pokémon in the completed pokédex, but the game seems to have a way of only allowing the player to download one of each of many of these forms, relying on encountering other pokédex 3d players with the data they're missing.

    It sucks man.

    Afaik you can download all the unique pokemon and only one of the species who have multiple forms. So basically you may only download (for example) Sawsbuck summer form and the rest maintain locked for you. Those other forms you can only get by trading it with people who have downloaded that version. Same goes for the other forms. But other than that, you should be able to get atleast 1 version per pokemon.

    I'm at 151/151, without any trading- Do you have the first 10 plus Zekrom and Reshiram? They're not available through spotpass, you have to point your camera at this thread! http://gbatemp.net/t296139-pokedex-3ds-ar-markings-thread - also getting the shadow of every one you're missing increases your chance of getting that Pokemon (by 'shadow' I mean that any AR codes for pokes you're missing will come up as a shadow when you scan them- to start scanning press start when using pokedex- then you will be more likely to recieve them.)

    A lot of effort went into this problem very quickly the day it came out, I hope it helps!

    Reason for edit- I was very unclear

    I've heard that you can only get one of three elemental monkeys through spotpass.
    I only have pansear and simisear.
