Unlock National Dex in Pokemon Sparkling Diamond and Sparkling Pearl

To get the National Dex, you will need to encounter all of the Pokémon in the Sinnoh region. However, it should be noted that you just need to witness them and not catch them all. This also goes hand in hand with the fact that you don't need to own both versions of the game to encounter all Pokemon.
As you work to meet all the Pokémon, keep a close eye on your Pokedex. When you complete this task, go to "Sandgem Town" and go to Professor Rowan's lab to then talk to the professor inside and Professor Oak will then give you the National Dex upgrade at the end of the dialogue. Now that you have successfully received the National Dex, you can now start obtaining Kabuto in the world.
