good stuff. btw, i read everyone's stuff.. just dont reply all the time.

______________

Bad and worse news... quick update..

Go north.. route 111 get a Numel.. cute and Hasty.. lvl 13. Go to Fiery Path.. get a Koffing.. coolio.. Gentle lvl 14.

Go to Route 112.. hope for the 5% skarmory.. run into a spinda..lol killed it.

Numel proves to be a solid addition..decide to keep on team and level it up. Get to level 24 and go into a double battle.

Numel lvl 24/ Vigoroth lvl 25 vs Aron lvl? / Koffing lvl 18

Remembers that my Koffing has Selfdestruct and it's lvl 18..

Ohhhh shiiiiiiit.

Numel aka NumNums.. Vigoroth aka Loaf.. Dead. Just ****ing dead..

**** you Koffing.. but it shows me that I need 'death fodder' on my squad in case this **** happens.

God dammit.. all that slow and steady training on Loaf..and recent 10lvl training for Nums.. wasted.

New team.. down to 3.

Koffing lvl 19
Breloom lvl 28
Marshtomp lvl 28

________________________

So after my double loss of NumNums and Loaf.. I continued West towards my journey. I ended up at Fallarbor Town, a small place which is not full of too much.. but as I went more West to route 114, I noticed a lot of grassy areas, so I decided to test my luck.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/333.gif
Swablu appears. Completely forgot this Pokemon existed.. sweet.

Catch, name her Cotton.. and decide to keep her on the team.. as my team is thin.

As I battle around the grass.. I realize it's a perfect place for my Koffing, Weezy, so I poison the hell out of Lombres and Lotads, with some Swablus on the side.

http://i48.*******.com/14jxgdj.png
holy OMG moment.

Swablu is taking a bit longer to level up, especially with Peck and Astonish as her moves.. but hey.. DRAGONS ARE WORTH IT!

I get Cotton to level 20, Weezy to level 26, and go to Meteor Falls.

Meteor Falls apparently has Pokemon in it? Ran into a Zubat.. killed it.. then ran into a Solrock.. fuuuuuu.. had to kill it.

We ran into Magma and Aqua grunts.. the battle of land/water has begun.. I now have to go chase them for the Meteorite.. wonderful.

http://i50.*******.com/wwdhfo.png
a bit stuffy up here

As I reach the Mountain, seems like bluevsred is in full force.. Aqua needs my assistance. So let's do this.

I battle Magma's main dude for the Meteorite.. he has a high leveled Mighteyna.. didn't expect that. His Bite is lethal man.. didn't expect that much power. I had to switch out Weezy because apparently I'm not able to handle the power right now.. Kippin was though, so escaped that battle.

Once it was over.. we headed to Lavaridge. Nothing to do here but straight up battle the gym. I felt confident..

http://i49.*******.com/2vmyejm.png
a nice rest before the battle

Lvl 28 Wheez, Lvl 21 Cotton, Lvl 30 Muffin, Lvl 30 Kippin.. I think we got this.

..... I was wrong. One word... Overheat.


We got through the gym trainers easy enough.. but once the gym leader battle started.. I really wasn't as prepared as I thought. My levels are also not that great.. not as high as I thought.

Weezy was able to handle the Slugma, Next was Camelrupt and Torkoal lvl 29. Kippin had to handle the Camel.. no way around it. Couldn't risk the issue. But with Torkoal.. I thought this would be a good chance to get some EXP for Weezy and Cotton. I switch in Wheez, feeling confident to handle Torkoal's poor movepool and poison then weardown. No.. what the heck was I thinking.. no. Wheez was able to Sludge + poison, sweet.. but Torkoal Body Slammed the hell out of Wheez, crit+para.. I couldn't kill it.. so I had to switch. Cotton was up.. expecting.. who knows what... I switch into an Overheat. Yes.. a +8advantage +140BP fire move.

Cotton dropped instantly. I cried.. my Dragon pokemon.. gone.

Kippin finished Torkoal off.. I win the TM, the badge, but definitely lost some great potential in Cotton.. Sing, Dragon Dance, ugh..

Afterwards, I went to the PC to deposit the deceased. Picked up the Wynaut Egg, [who knows, maybe it will grow to be great?] Then saved game.

Next up.. the Sand Area.


Current Team

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/259.gif

Important Deaths


http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/333.gif
Was a good potential E4 Pokemon.. really sucks she fell..

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/304.gif
Was hoping to have Nora as a staple for a while, with her solid defense and steel typing.. it would be nice.. bleh

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/322.gif
Was very reliable.. it's a freaking shame NumNums died. It had a great movepool to look forward to. And I never used one before.. so I was hoping to use that Camel beauty.. spent some major time leveling it up.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/288.gif
This guy.. had it since the beginning of the journey.. and it dies to a Selfdestruct.. slow freaking EXP Growth.. a pain in the bottom + loafing around.. wasted my dang time. I will avenge you.

Quick update:

Beat Brock with Fasha and Peat's sheer awesomeness

Idioticly got Magikarp on Route 4[another female] nicknamed Unagi

Found another Pidgey on Route 3.

Peat evolved into Ivysaur( Yay)

Found a Geodude in mount moon(killed)

That about sums it up. Also, I forgot to mention I caught A metapod in Viridian Forest[F](May). She's a buttefee now. Rng reporter, srry about cotton.

Thanks :(

Your team has some nice variety. Plan on doing anything with Magikarp?

__________________________

My long update..

The sandstorm area.. with my go-goggles or whatever.. it's my next step in the journey.

I go straight to the sand to see if I can get some luck for a Trapinch or Baltoy..

Sandshrew.. I decide a pure Ground wouldn't be the best for me right now.. so I continued to just slaughter anything around, trainers also.. to level up my Pokes. Afterwards, we went to the Mirage Tower to get a fossil. We enter, and shortly get into a Wild Pokemon battle.. Trapinch! Word up.

Google the Trapinch.

A Ground type with a few Dark moves.. with no one supereffective to hit.. it's going to be a long journey to level this thing up.. but I do believe it will be worth it. Just need to care for it better than I did Cotton and my other fallen potentials.

I retrieve a fossil.. the Claw Fossil.

http://i46.*******.com/1175uo2.png
in the middle of the storm..

Then the tower falls and I realize what's next for me.. to battle my father..

I reach the gym.. with my team lined up.. Muffin the Breloom should take this easily.

Muffin lvl 33, Kippin lvl 34, Wheez lvl 35, Google lvl 22, and my beautiful Egg.

First match, battled a Delakitty. Won easily. Mach Punch.

Second match, I think it was a Spinda.. either way.. easy match.

My next match, before facing my father.. was against a trainer with a Slakoth.

A ****ing Slakoth.. lolllllll.. yes.. Muffin will beat this joke of a Pokemon.

http://i48.*******.com/24y21dy.png

Did you guys know that Slakoth can know Counter? .... and did you know Muffin can't OHKO a Slakoth with Mach Punch? Even though he was 6-7lvls higher?

**** me.. RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE.

I honestly don't know what to do now.. I feel as though I am ****ed.. as grass/fight was a good cover for my team and I need answers to all the water coming up, etc.

But this is what happens.. this gym is a lot harder than I thought.. on to Norman.

So now what.. I have a Weezing, Marshtomp, and a Trapinch [that won't be able to do a damn thing right now].

Fortunately.. I was able to keep my composure, make sure not to get ****ed by 'Counter'.. [which he used a few times btw].. and thanks to Wheez and his high defenses.. between his Sludge/Smokescreen and Kippin's MudShot's on the "loafing around".. we were able to take down the beast that is Slaking.. who has Facade btw.. who kicks major *** with it btw.. and the only way I won.. the ONLY way I was able to not lose Kippin or Wheez.. was because of "loafing around" and Smokescreen working wonders.

http://i45.*******.com/np1eol.png
[close ****ing call.. shiiiiiii-]

I continue to be severely under-prepared when real challenges arise.. I think it's time for me to realize my poor training skills right now.. be patient.. and take time into developing my team.. I should of had a Swampert by now.. a stronger Weezing.. a more complete Breloom.. and a stronger Trapinch. Hell.. half of the deceased were major plans for my squad..

http://i48.*******.com/2nvas8i.png
I added my old catch.. Yoko.. to get some fighting back into my lineup. Definitely not the power-house Breloom/Muffin was.. but we'll see how it goes.
I have HM-Surf now.. so I'm assuming it's time to ride the waves [what a perfect time for Muffin to level up.. :( ] I'll take a look at the map and be on my way.

RIP
Muffin

Gym Leader Winona.. is my next battle.

Before going to this gym, I've been busy leveling up my team.. preparing them for what's ahead.

New Mauville was pretty simple, got a TM-Thunderbolt to boot! Google the Trapinch was going well with Sand Tomb and Faint Attack.. doing some real damage while leveling up to 30 in a short time. Mind you.. I caught Google at level 20. Hard stuff.

Afterwards we headed East, Route 118 then Route 119. Battling Wild Pokemon all around..

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/082.gifhttp://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/329.gif

My beautiful teammates finally evolved. My squad is looking ****ing good.. and I'm pleased as hell.

My squad is all around lvl 36-38, and I do feel like we're strong enough.

With Steel the Magneton on my squad.. against all Flying-types? LOL. Yes please.

1st trainer, wiped out.

Double battle, quick and easy.

3rd battle before Winona, another Magneton win.

Winona time.. I feel extremely confident. I have Magneton and Wheez as the defensive powerhouses. Then Kippin the Swampert that has had my back through it all.

Magneton vs Swablu.. easy enough.. 'Spark'

Magneton vs Altaria.. so.. more of the same.. sounds good.

Hey guys.. did you all know Altaria knows Earthquake?

Yeah.. I didn't.

Magneton.. RIP. Are you ****ing kidding me.. I will never catch a break.

Well it's not over. Altaria vs Kippin it goes..

Surf vs Dragonbreath.. Kippin gets paralyzed.. and Surf doesn't do hardly anything.. I push Surf a few more times.. and get Altaria about halfway.. then they switch it out for Tropius.

I switch to Wheez.. handle Tropius.

The rest of the battle is a ****ing blur.. but I do know that Google died as well.. probably because I'm just an idiot..

as you can see from the picture below.. even Kippin almost headed to the graveyard.

http://i48.*******.com/2jg0c1v.png

I'm playing like a *******.. I've lost very valuable Pokemon along the journey because of my stupidity and poor luck..

Will this journey continue on? Or will I retire my journey.. and concede defeat.. and possibly.. one day.. go out and try again.

Who knows.. but I also know this world is a lot to handle.

@RNG Reporter: I'm sorry for your multiple losses. Also, next gym is Tate+Liza. On Ruby and Sapphire, they have Solrock and Lunatone. Movesets:

Solrock(Lv. 42): Sunny Day, SolarBeam, Flamethrower, Psychic
Lunatone(Lv. 42): Calm Mind, Psychic, Hypnosis, Light Screen

On Emerald, two more are added:

Xatu: Calm Mind, Psychic, Confuse Ray, Sunny Day
Claydol: Earthquake, AncientPower, Light Screen, Psychic

It seems you've lost a lot of Pokemon in gyms due to lack of knowledge of their movesets, so I thought this may be helpful. Good luck, and keep Wheez out of there.

RNG_Reporter
13th July 2012, 10:12 PM
Thanks for the help.. seems like if I level up Swampert a bit more.. all I need is another Pokemon to help and I should be okay. Hopefully I run into something worthwhile.

If this gym proves to be too much for me.. it might be the end for this journey.

[I've recorded 26hours into this journey.. ON MY DROID PHONE lol.. I can't have it all wasted]

Z-nogyroP
14th July 2012, 2:49 AM
@RNG: Swampert will be extremely useful this gym. Surf is the best move to use, but remember, it's nerfed by Sunny Day, and then Solrock can launch a SolarBeam at Swampert. A Dark type would wall Lunatone, so you could try killing Solrock, then leaving the rest to, say, a Nuzleaf. Good luck!

Terra Force
14th July 2012, 3:02 AM
@RNG Reporter, don't quit. You have had some bad luck, but no one said it would be easy right? If you'd like a tip, one word: research. Never go into a Team Aqua/Magma boss battle or gym battle or any important battles without knowing what's coming.

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________


So, pretty big update here.

Ok so I beat up May with ease, and moved on to Mauville. Went west grabbed a totally useless Marril for the team, when I clearly still need a grass type like oddish. Moving on, I grinded for a while, and then Larry, my Makuhita, was one level from evolution, so I went to Cycling Road to beat some trainers up. I was watching TV while I did it, Larry beat a Magnemite right after it used Metal Sound on him. Another Magnemite up next. I just thought a simple Vital Throw would take it out so Larry stayed in. Thundershock, dead. Into the R.I.P. box with him....

So having lost a seriously important member on my team, I went to the gym, ready for Tank the marshtomp to kick some ***. And he did. I challenged Wattson and he throws a Voltorb out. Selfdestruct, I hold my breath... but I don't call him Tank for nothing, and he withstands that critical hit. I think I accidentally healed him, breaking my own personal rule, but it was an accident so I've decided to just abolish that rule altogether. Tank swept the rest easily with mud shot. Next up, got strength, went north to find what I hoped to be a Numel. I went into the grass and found my Numel to my relief, since Camerupt is an awesome powerhouse who could hopefully replace Larry's place on the team for now. Docile nature, NN'd Val.

Now I grind my Numel until it's 25, picked up a machop from Fiery Path somewhere in the middle and taught it strength. Decided to hold off training it, and threw him in the daycare for now. Anyway, I moved on with my journey, with my three main pokemon, Val the Numel, Tank the Marshtomp, and Tweety the Swellow.

Moved along to Fallarbor, picked up a Spinda on the way. Went east and caught a Swablu, possibly a powerful member to be called upon, should I need her. But not now. Went to Meteor Falls, training my pokemon up along the way, and found a Zubat inside. Caught it and named it Bitey. Modest nature....

After the Meteor Falls incident, I head to Mt. Chimney and beat up the Magmas. I took caution since I was worried about Maxie's Camerupt, but we came out with the easy win. Went down into Jagged Path, where I was happy to see Val evolve into Camerupt! Attack and Sp. Attack both went up like fricking 20, so he's my strongest member now. Caught a second machop of my own desire because my first had a bold nature. This one's naughty, so I'm pretty satisfied there. And that brings me to the gym. You guys think I'm ready?

14th July 2012, 12:48 PM
Sorry about your losses RNG...but thanks for reminding me about Overheat. That is my next gym battle in my Ruby Nuzlocke.
Right now I'm in Fallabor Town getting ready to take on the gym. But an update from my last post
After taking out May I went to Mauville City and immediately took on the gym thinking that I had it in the bag...Oh, that overconfidence, shoulda given me a warning. I led off with my Nincada, knowing that being part ground will make her immune to electric attacks. I almost lost her to a crit but thankfully she survived and I replaced her with Bremish and was successful in getting my badge. Up through rte 112, I met Numerupt the Numel, got to Fiery Path and was hoping for a Torkoal, but was cursed once again with a Koffing, that I named Kokofezing. Next I started through the ash covered rte 113, hoping that I don't get a lousy Spinda, and I get three steps in...oh-oh, it's, it's a Skarmory!!! Yes, I really like Skaar and as soon as I get to town I replace Bremish with Skaar. I talk to Lanette and then head off to her house on rte 114. One step in to the grass, and I get a hit on a *SWEET!* Zangoose I catch and name Zannga. I encounter my next fav a swablu and hope I can find one on another rte. into meteor falls and catch a zubat, that I name Zugocrabat. Save the scientist, run after team magma and get back the meteorite, get to Fallarbour Town where I intend to start training for the gym. Then I read RNG's run on the gym, oh-oh, I really need to level up my team.
Current team: Mazuma, the Azumarill lvl 22 - Tackle, Rollout, Tail Whip and Water Gun
Linzig, the Linoone lvl 22 - Cut, Strength, Headbutt and Sand Attack (cannot box yet, must be lvl 25 - my rule original 6 cannot be boxed until they reach lvl 25)
Skaar, the Skarmory lvl 20 - Peck, Sand Attack, Swift, and Rock Smash (will probably switch out. lol)
Cadjask, the Ninjask lvl 25 - Fury Cutter,Screech, Double Team and Leech Life (now that she is at lvl 25 I can box her)
Abradabra, the Kadabra lvl 25 - Confusion, Recover, Psybeam and Teleport
and Mana, my Grovyle lvl 25 - Quick Attack, Absorb, Pursuit and Bullet Seed.

I'm thinking of taking Numerupt and training her for this gym...any other suggestions guys....?

RNG_Reporter
14th July 2012, 5:36 PM
You will definitely need some fire-taking abilities.. so get the camel out. Level up, and goodluck!

_______________________-

Emerald Nuzlocke Run #1.. Kippin the Mudkip as my starter..

I decided to end it. I concede defeat.. and admit I was in over my head in the first Nuzlocke run I've ever attempted. I tried to continue on.. but Kippin and Wheez were unable to find reliable teammates along the way.. and were underperforming, that Milotic trainer? What a pain.., a lot of close calls that I didn't expect also. You can't always win.. and with a Nuzlocke.. there's only so much you can control.

I do love the concept of Nuzlockes.. and I want to go again. I need to control myself.. remember that my team is not expendable.. and go on with determination and patience.





Emerald Nuzlocke Run #2: The revival


Rules:
- No items during battle
- Main 3 rules in opening post applies
- No repeat Pokemon; unless the Pokemon has already fainted
- 1 route, 1 Pokemon. Explained: Caves/Buildings; 1 level, 1 Pokemon. If route has water and grass, 1 Pokemon allowed for each surface. [So each Pokemon gets a chance to be caught]
- PC allowed unlimited
- Switch setting
- Level limit; I don't know set levels of trainers and gyms.. but no higher than 10 above battles.

I go on my journey once again.. after taking a 'Pokemon' year long break to get more understanding of the world around me. I feel as though I've matured and am now focused more than i was before.

I move to a new town.. and help the professor escape a battle.

I use..

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/252.gif
Pex the Treecko. I believe he has the calmness yet courage.. as I do.. to be a strong face in the Pokemon World.

Once I receive my 'balls' , I search on the first route I can..

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/265.gif
Wigs the Wurmple. Meh. Welcome to the squad.

As I level up my team a bit.. Wigs evolves.. into what you might be wonder?

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/268.gif
Well.. well.. alright then.

I head up to where I battled May.. and run into my 3rd teammate.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/261.gif
Fangs the Poochyena. A bit 'Lonely', but I hope he can be comfortable with me soon.

As I level my pokes up.. we do well. I go West to see what other Pokemon is out there.. I land upon a..

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/270.gif
Dish the Lotad. I don't feel I need him atm.. so I box him for now, as Treecko can handle the grass duties for now.

As I level my guys up.. all is well. Currently my Pokemon are roughly 5-6 levels above the Wild Pokemon.. which protects me from getting a cheap death and I can level up with confidence.

http://i45.*******.com/b6zn93.png

http://i45.*******.com/21ljsow.png

So this is what my team looks like. [above]

Edit; as I post this. just imagine each of those Pokemon 2 levels higher. Playing atm.



http://i45.*******.com/2zf7ho0.png

My Wigs.. who was 6 levels above this pesky bird.. soooooooo close to evolving.. [which is why I kept it in], could handle the peck(s) worth 4-5 XP, but unfortunately.. because of an in-game 90% crit-rate.. dies to a tragic peck.

I've never used a Dustox.. I wanted to.. I believe it had good qualities. Maybe one day a Wurmple and I will meet again.

Only upside.. it was extremely early in the game.. 3 trainer battles into it.. so it's a big wake-up call. I NEED to pay attention.. I NEED to calm down and focus.. and not be reckless for no reason. There is no redo.. there is no undo.. there is just one life for each of us.

**** is real.

RNG_Reporter
15th July 2012, 3:52 AM
As Wigs dies.. I find myself having to deal with my undoing of last years attempt. As I head to my fathers gym to talk about my journey, in the the back of my head though, I keep questioning myself and my abilities.

I head West of his gym and look towards my next Pokemon.. hoping for something other than a Pooch or a Wurmple.. and I land upon a..

Maril! Sweet.. will catch!
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/183.gif

Guess what? Fangs decided that Maril would not be part of my squad.. and instead of listening to me to take it easy and catch it.. Fangs crit hit it halway through the catching process.. and landed a KO.

No Maril for me.. wonderful. I feel like it would have been cool.

Next up.. Petalburg Woods.. let's see what I get. No point in wasting time as there are a few trainers that need dealing with.

First patch of grass inside the 'Woods', here it is..

A Shroomish.
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/285.gif

Yay/Nay Pokemon for me.. but you can't pass up a rare Pokemon like Shroomish.. so I catch her.

In dedication to the late 'Muffin'.. I name this cutie Biscuit. And guess what? ADAMANT nature. What luck.. only problem.. more than half the Pokemon I have are Grass types.. lol.. what the hell is this. Not a big fan. But Nuzlocke is Nuzlocke.

Honestly, Adamant isn't too good for a gen 3 Shroomish, since all Grass attacks are special. Breloom may be a physical attacker, but it's got respectable special attack... so it's honestly kind of a suckish nature. You got really lucky with the other three though, hehe. Also, is your Treecko named Pex or Gex? The screenshots say Gex but you refer to him as Pex...

RNG_Reporter
15th July 2012, 5:54 AM
I'm retarded. It's Gex.

Also, it's Fang not Fangs. Lol..

I know Adamant isn't best for Biscuit.. since I am aware of the phy/spec split and all.. but the Gen 4/5 in me got excited. Either way.. I don't need more Grass in my life.

15th July 2012, 10:10 AM
Sorry to hear that you conceded defeat RNG, luck on the new one (it's almost deja vu for my start - a lot of ****ing grass types)

An update for my Ruby...
Got tired of trying to level up my Azumaril, Mazuma and Numerupt (via Exp. Share) Soooo, I take a deep breath and enter the gym to face Flannery. Mazuma was at lvl 26, and Numerupt was at lvl 20.
Out comes slugma, easy-peasy, one Bubblebeam, and I'm onto the next. She sends out Numel, okay Mazuma can handle that with Bubblebeam too. Next up was Camelrupt, I'm thinking of using Rollout now just to take out Torkoal on it's 4th and 5th hits. Nah, hit Camelrupt with Bubblebeam, into the yellow, he hits me with Earthquake, not much damage. I go to use another Bubblebeam and Flannery heals the big beast. Okay, Bubble away...ember, and I get burned. I had given Mazuma a Rawst berry so I get healed right away. Bubblebeam, ohhh! just about had 'im, that Camelrupt was tough. Flannery uses another Hyper Potion, I pummel him with Bubbles til he drops....
Sigh, 3 down, 1 to go. I'm scared of that Overheat, she might be a water type, but that move would boil her alive.
Out comes Torkoal, I fire off a Bubblebeam, 1/3 down, Bodyslam - paralysed! D***, I ignore the stat and fire off another Bubblebeam, Attract is the move used. Torkoal is male, and, uh-oh Mazuma is a girl. Okay switch out, to Abradabra, he gets hit with Bodyslam, red line, ouch, Mazuma is put back out. Another Bodyslam, I use a Super potion. I get hit with another Bodyslam, I reply with a Bubblebeam. Attract (I am really beginning to hate that move). I try a Bubblebeam, Zzzt, I'm paralysed, no move. Bodyslam. Super Potion. Bodyslam. *Sigh*, Bubblebeam. Sorry, Mazuma it too infatuated. Bodyslam. Low yellow, okay I need to do something here. Ah, I have one Full Restore, I use it. Bodyslam - paralysed. **** (my roommate is glaring at me now, I ignore her). Bubblebeam. Attract. This is getting old...okay I'm going to skip ahead, just repeat the above several times, minus the Full Restore. I'm paralysed and infatuated, Torkoal is in the low reds, I'm mid yellow, *fingers crossed*, Bubblebeam...and Mazuma responds. Oh! My! G**! I have the badge.
I'm gonna go throw up now....

Save game and go to bed.

15th July 2012, 7:04 PM
Congrats on the badge Fenyxfyr, it's not an especially easy one. RNG I'm sorry to hear about you giving up, but I wish you the best on your new one! Also adamant is actually very good, considering you've already got Treecko, who's got awesome sp. attack as it is, and you won't need Breloom's grass type moves. I envy your luck to get one. I am in need of some sort of fighting type.

I'm feeling really confident with my team right now. Good levels, strong pokemon overall. Ok so I challenged Flannery and she gave me no trouble at all. With my brand new Go-goggles, I go into the desert and pick up a Sandshrew (Slasher) and Trapinch (Mirage Tower). I've been waiting for this trapinch, who I named Killer. I trained it up, which took AGES to do, since I went all the way up to 33 in the desert. Wiped out all of the trainers in the desert and headed over to Norman's gym.

So I arrived, beat the trainers up, and all my pokemon were level 34. I had Bulbapedia as my guide, and challenged him. First pokemon, Spinda, Overheat (glad I taught Camerupt that), done. Switch out to Zanna my level 15 Sableye. His Linoone uses Belly Drum, maximizes its attack, I use rock smash. It only has normal moves, and fails to do **** to me, so I rock smash away and eventually take it down. Next up is Vigorith, Overheat and he's down. Slaking, I send in Tank the Marshtomp to tank some hits. He endures facade, and hits with Mud Shot. Another Mud Shot, he loafs. One more Facade endurance and a Mud shot and its over.

So then I teach Tank Surf and do a ton of training and extra stuff that I couldn't do before. During this a few significant things happen: Tank evolves to Swampert, Killer evolves to Vibrava and his attack drops like 20, Camerupt learned Earthquake, and I caught: Planty the Lileep, Birdy the Swellow, Peeko the Wingull, Poke Ball the Voltorb, and Lily the Oddish. Now I'm in Fortree with confidence in my team, and I'm ready to beat Winona.

Well perhaps it was my overconfidence that cost me. But I lost a great member last night.

So I was sorta just rematching a lot of trainers and battled the tv crew a couple times. So I went into battle against Ty and Gabby with Tweety the Swellow and Val the Camerupt. They had Magneton and Loudred. I thought it would be easy work for Camerupt, just an earthquake to win it. Swellow used Quick Attack to assure Loudred would die from Earthquake. Then Magneton used Spark and killed Tweety, the pokemon who has been there through it all, my first captured pokemon.

Maybe this is a good thing, since tweety wouldn't have helped much in the E4, but still it brings a chunk of coverage out of my team. So now I am going to train up another pokemon, probably Bellossom, Vileplume, Cradily, or something else, who knows really.

started off with withdrawing meowgi, in hopes that bite would help against the rivals Kadabra on the SS. Anne. Caught a Drowzee on route 11 named Zeebo before i trained Meowgi. After a few battles i realize meowgis Bite is doing very little damage to the drowzee which are 1 level lower than it. I then went back to the PC and brought panda back out, while deciding against replacing Flygon for Zeebo for now. After Battling all the Route 11 trainer we headed for the SS. Anne, where Panda Evolved. After finishing off most of the trainers we headed for Gary.

Iggy took out Pidgeotto after it stalled its defeat with sand attack.
Panda took out Raticate with a Hyper Fang and quick attack. Raticate only got 1 tail whip off.
Panda also took out Kadabra in 1 hyper fang,
Adele then came out and mega Punched Charmeleon away.

After that surprisingly easy battle, i healed my team in my cabin and we headed to the gym. To get in I Put Ch'DING away for Meowgi so she can use cut. Surge and friends were easy to beat thanks to iggy, Dig took care of everyone. Raichu was the only problem thanks to double team and being Paralyzed by static. Iggy evolved afterward and i got the bike Vocher before saving.

well to be truthful, panda did die to the rival in Cerulean, but i had a revive from Mt Moon, and used it. I let my self use revives only if i find them on the floor

She was the only death though, which im surprised by. I do buy Super Potions often which helps i suppose, and ive also had some other close calls.

It's been a while.. so enjoy seeing what's been going on in my journey.
______________________

As I'm in the woods, I work on training up Gex and Fang. Along with Biscuit[the Adamant Shroomish], trying to see if she can prove a different look than Gex already gives me. I don't see much thrill coming from Biscuit.. so I box her for good; Gex can cover them both right now.

Gex and Fang get up to level 14, Bite and Quick Attack are looking to be very solid moves.

Once we leave the woods we head straight up behind the berry house, hoping for maybe a Marill, if it's even around. I want a water Pokemon asap.

Taillow.. well.. a bird Pokemon would be nice, let's go for it.
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/276.gif
Caught.. Timid nature.

It's a shame, I gave it such an awesome name, Rocket. Oh well, boxed it is. Although still in-game.. I need all the ATK stats I can get.

Gex and Fang.. who now go by 'Gang' work on the trainers on the way to Rustboro.

Easy work, nice levels still. 14 Gex/15 Fang.

We bypass all the buildings and look for the new route for a Pokemon.. the odds are good.. and out pops a

Nincada.
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/290.gif
Welcome Nina the Nincada.. Docile.

As I work on leveling her up.. I notice how underwhelming she is.. and honestly.. it's stressful. But man.. I want that Shedinja.. so let's go for it!

I teach her Cut and slash away at Wild Pokemon, getting her to level 10.

I save ppl, Peeko, yada yada.. good times. I decide to catch a Whismur since it's in the tunnel.
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/293.gif
Mach the Whismur is aboard. And holy hell.. this thing actually packs a punch. Pound and Uproar are great.. especially in the Tunnel since Soundproof blocks opposing Uproars. Word.

I get that beauty to level 13 in no time.

We battle Roxanne. [I think that's her name]

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/252.gif
Gex really destroy everyone with Absorb.. still a Treecko.

Now to the Gym Leader. Again.. Gex beats the first two Pokemon.. and out comes Nosepass.
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/299.gif

1. I forgot it was level 15. [same level as Treecko now]. 2. I forgot it's bulky as ****, and Absorb is a weak-*** Grass-type move.

Gex is also unable to handle powerful hits atm.. so Rock Tomb does some major damage. Unfortunately I was only able to dish out two Absorbs.. and could only take two Rock Tombs before being down to less than half health.. no way in hell will Gex survive.. damn.. I think I'm screwed.

I need to sacrifice someone.. I have no other option. The next hit will surely kill Gex.. severely weaken Fang which will help me in no way whatsoever.. or kill Nina.. :( [Mach was showing a lot of potential, couldn't risk her]

I sacrifice Nina.. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.. I'm sorry you beautiful *****.
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/290.gif
RIP

Nina takes the hit like a champ.. as she turns and looks at me before falling.. to say, "**** you man.. **** you."

I switch in Fang.. he's my only hope. I have one option.. Sand-Attack the **** out of Nosepass.. I pull off 6 Sand-Attacks.. while taking 1 Rock Tomb.

Sand-Attack.. the *****iest move.. whatever.. I was pushed into a corner. Gotta survive.

Then I proceed to Bite the hell out of Nosepass until he drops. Mind you.. Potions, Super Potions were happening non-stop. Thankfully he fell.. and 'Gang' we both able to level up in the process. I dodged a huge bullet.

http://i48.*******.com/24m4w0k.png

Guess who evolved?
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/253.gif
Looking pretty boss tbh.. unfortunately the Emerald sprite doesn't look as awesome.. but that speed.. THAT SPEED.

We win, we then battle a few trainers by the cave to level up a bit.

As we head back down.. May is waiting for me. I have confidence.. my team is looking decent.. let's roll.

I forgot her exact team.. but I do know she has a Torchic. Mach killed the first Pokemon.. Since Mach the Whismur was already in.. and since I know Torchic doesn't have a fighting move.. I stay in for the final matchup.

http://i45.*******.com/2d8ew06.png

Lv 14 Whismur vs Lv 15 Torchic

I honestly thought I would be able to handle the baby bird.. but I messed up.. I used Uproar instead of Pound. Which locks me into the battle.

Torchic Embers.. then Embers again for the KO. **** man.. Brain-fart.

Mach is done. Ughhhhhhhhhh. I wasted two Pokemon potentials.. kind of avoidable.. but I don't feel too upset at myself.

I finish Torchic off with Fang.. and save file.

My Team atm:

http://i46.*******.com/203yhw.png
http://i47.*******.com/2dqoivn.png

Next up, boat to Dewford, caves, and hey.. OLD ROD. I'll get that water pokemon.. lol.

_________________________

I arrive in Dewford, and grab the Old Rod straight away.

It's a win/win for me.. as I believe a Magikarp or a Tentacool will do well.
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/072.gif
Out pops a Tentacool!

I decide to go for him... and nickname him..

MEGAMIND
http://content.internetvideoarchive.com/content/photos/6780/28479834_.jpg

Relaxed nature. So it definitely messes with his speed.. but at least the SpDef will get a boost.

I work on leveling up Megamind.. and notice it's not going to be easy.. especially with a 'slow' EXP Growth.. basically a zubat with water typing lol.. poor movepool atm.

Anyways.. i head to the graphite cave.. looking for something decent. Makuhita comes out of the wild! Nice. Thank god it has a high encounter rate.
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/296.gif
Catch him.
http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2010/325/4/1/296__makuhita_by_happycrumble-d33bhto.png

Kahim the Makuhita. Has Guts.. which will be nice while I absorb status.. which 3rd gen has plenty of.

Nothing else but Steven and TM-Steel Wing come from the cave.. so looks like this is my squad for a bit..

Grovyle, Mighteyna, Makuhita, and Tentacool. I'm definitely going to need patience with those slow level-uppers.. but I can't get too attached.. Nuzlocke likes to break hearts.

Grovyle and Tentacool were able to handle the fighting gym.. and thankfully Meditite only does Focus Punch.. so as long as I kept attacking.. it was a breeze. The opposing Makuhita was kind of a difficult task though..

Such a bulky Pokemon.. it's unreal. I hope mine does the same.

I win, no casualties. [HOORAY!!!]. Then head to Slateport.

-btw, I've been playing a while.. I'm currently at Mauville-

Just been a long day, and played a bunch.. a bit tired of writing atm. so I won't bore you all.

Highlights.

I went North of Slateport.. and found an Electrike..
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/309.gif
Crit kill ftl.. bleh. Would have been nice.

This time around.. I know May will have Combusken ready to go with Peck/Ember/Double Kick [what a ****ing movepool man..]
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/256.gif
So I make sure to level my Pokes up a bit more than hers.. so 25-26 is where we went. Tentacool handled them like a champ.. I was impressed.. I hope when he evolves.. he grows some more bulk and stability.

Get to Mauville and I will not underestimate my opponents again..

My Grovyle has no bulk whatsoever.. so it can't do much.. Mighteyna can't take hits.. so Manectric, etc will slaughter him.. I'm currently working on getting my Makuhita strong enough to get ready to face the Magneton that awaits him.. I don't feel he's ready.. I just don't. My Pokemon are so frail.. and I now understand why people say if you don't have Mudkip or Torchic.. Wattson is the devil. Too bad Tentacool is worthless in this gym.. his solid defense would be nice.. oh well.

As I go West of Mauville.. I run into an Oddish.. but I just box and save.
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/043.gif
Raddish the Oddish I might add.

So here I am.. Mauville.. in wild grass.. preparing one of the toughest challenges for my team.. a few more levels and we're ready to go.
He has a Voltorb that likes to selfdestruct, the Electrike that has a decent shockwave + static, a Manectric that is very powerful and shockwave.. then the magneton.. vs the only pokemon i have that can handle it.. Kahim the NOW Hariyama.
edit; I've now grinded as much as my eyes and fingers can handle..
I mean.. cmon.. my Pokes have like 7 levels above most of them.. we have to do it. And as long as Fang can knock out the weak two in Wattson's group with Bite.. it can open up the battle for Kahim to use it's bulk and power to beat Magneton and Manectric.

I have that Shroomish in my PC.. so if things do go south.. and I get completely raped and ****ed by crits, paralyzes, or just beat bad.. I can use Biscuit to level up and Mach Punch me to victory, hopefully.

______________________

My team played Wattson exactly how I hoped.

Fangs took Voltorb out with 2 Bites exactly.. only had to deal with a ShockWave which thankfully didn't paralyze me.

Fangs then faced the Electrike [I kept thinking Electivire.. lol] And again.. 2 Bites were able to handle it.. but unfortunately it got paralyzed.. so imo, that was the end for him.. which is fine.. he couldn't handle the other two. Wattson sends out Magneton.. I switch out Fang for Kahim.

This is is.. it's either win or go home. I go with Fake Out first.. to get a little damage on it.. hardly any.. but at least maybe Vital Throw will get closer to KO range.

Magneton goes with T-Wave.. FINALLY GUTS CAN BE USED! I think he just ****ed himself..

Vital Throw just slaughters Magneton.. but up next is Manectric.. and I honestly have no other option but stick with Kahim.. since the bulk and power is all I've got to go with.

I take a Shock Wave.. I hit back with VThrow. Wattson uses a SPotion.. I VThrow again. Still not dead.. Manectric hits with ShockWave and gets me decently low. I finally get another VThrow in without being para-haxed.. and finish the gym.

Holy ****.. wooooooo. Dodged the bullet.
http://i47.*******.com/zmfdsn.png

I win then go North to the new areas full of Pokemon.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/322.gif
Numel baby.. once again shows it's face, like last journey. Looks like a good idea to keep him, so I catch and name Lemon.

I then go into the Path where more Pokemon live.. it would be nice to get a Koffing or maybe a Torkoal to battle for my fire-type.. but instead.
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/066.gif
Machop gets caught.. as I never know when I need a fighting type.. and I name it Nacho.

During this time.. I stick to this Path and level up my Numel and other Pokemon.. getting each to lvl 29-30. Mainly Numel since it's so low..

I think what's next is to go to the Ashy Area where some Pokemon are.. let's test my luck.

I have a team of 5 atm.. they do cover each other decently.. so not sure what else I need.. but I'll just travel through to the next town since my Pokes are pretty ****ing high now. Beast levels.

So I head to the Ashy Area..

Question.. lol.. because this is just hilarious and a holy ****ing hell **** kasdlasd moment.

What are the odds of coming across a shiny Skarmory as the first Pokemon in the route.. AND the first patch of grass?

APPARENTLY REALLY ****ING GOOD. Lol... What the **** Game Freak.. are you trolling me right now?
http://i46.*******.com/2laznkx.png

http://i45.*******.com/2m45zs1.png

http://i47.*******.com/4fwxls.png

I feel like it's too good to be true.. but **** it.. I deserve this cool luck.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/s/227.gif

It was extremely hard to catch.. I spent almost all of my Pokeballs and Greatballs on it.. i really wish I had status with me.. but all I could do was weaken it down with Normal type moves.. then keep after it.

Docile.. who gives a ****..


So currently I'm saved at the Ashy grass.. about to level up my newly acquired Pokemon.. then head West once we're all level 30.

Maybe my luck is changing.. or maybe I've just been playing so damn much.. I've landed upon every percentage possible.. and the roll of the dice was quality.

I think my team looks good.. but it's definitely not that great. Grovyle and Mighteyna are still unable to take any hit whatsoever. I now have 2 ground weaks, and my only fire-resist is weak to ground attacks they tend to carry.

I also have flying weaknesses.. which I have no resistance to.. Winona will be so difficult.

Also.. I am completely confident that i will lose half this team vs Norman. I lost valuable Pokemon last time. His sheer power will kick my ***. Slaking.. bleh

Until next time.

YUSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS


______________

Onto my update.. after retrieving the Skarmory, It's roughly 13 levels below my team, and with Flaanery as the next true opponent, I believe it's pointless for me to go all out in catching it up. So instead I prepare the few Pokemon that will actually do something vs the fire gym + Team Magma. Lemon, Megamind, and Kahim.

Side note; I hope at some point.. Gex is worthwhile.. lol. Because so far he's been doing **** all, and has been sitting at the back of the party while I kill **** with everyone else. Treecko is not for the weak.

Back to the story. There really isn't much battling available between the Skarmory catch and the Fire-gym. There just isn't. Especially when all my Pokemon are just dominate vs the wild Pokemon.. and the trainers are few and far between.

I did go West of Fallabor Town and test my luck at the grassy patches.

Swablu? Would be nice. Seviper? Meh.. no thanks. So really.. the only quality Pokemon would be Swablu for me..

I pull..
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/271.gif
The evolved form of what I already have. I catch him anyways, name him 'Hombre' and box. He actually has a quality nature, Naive. So if I do ever need him.. he's decently equipped.

I head to the Meteor Falls.. to activate the "battle for middle-earth" with Magma and Aqua. **** is about to get good now.. battles and battles are in my future for sure.

"Oh yeah.. Zubats and Solrocks are in here.. sweet!"

I get..
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/041.gif
Bleh.. bummer. I name her Tabby.. i do catch her and she has a 'Naive nature'. Again.. niiiiiiiiice.

I've been pretty lucky with natures in this journey.. I've noticed that the natures duplicate with my Pokemon. Say I have 1 Adamant.. It's a given that I'll have another Adamant nature somewhere in my party or box.. strange system.

So I head to the Magma Meteorite Site.. and try to fight my way to the bossman. His team is pretty solid actually.. I forgot.

Mightyena was decently equipped.. but my Lemon/Numel took him out like a champ. Next was Camelrupt.. Lemon is still just a child.. don't face the dad just yet. So i switched to Megamind for the simple 4x water win.

Afterwards I headed South. Rugged Path or something like that.

Spoink baby!
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/325.gif

Idk what the odds are of me landing her.. but she looks cool as hell.

Name the 'Lonely natured' pig Spork, and box. Apparently Lonely is horrible.. so that's a dead end.

Fire-gym time..

Oh btw, I noticed Lemon was just 1 level away from becoming a fat beast.. so I did it.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/322f.gif to http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/323f.gif

This guy looks so awesome.. I love him. I hope he never dies.. llol.


So Megamind is level 31.. and definitely prepared to run through this gym. Honestly.. I didn't have to use anyone else.. I didn't expect to have the level power I did, and Tentacruel to be so dominant with that Bubblebeam. Reminded me of the old R/B days of Bubblebeam.

I did fear a potential Ground-type attack from something.. but all in all.. it was a comfortable gym run. Thank God.. last time it was brutal.

Torkoal showed it's worth once again though.. being a durable beast and landing a solid Body Slam that could have ****ed me over.. but thankfully as you can see.. Megamind is TOO STRONGTH.

http://i50.*******.com/ngafbk.png

I dont want to get too confident though.. but I had a solid showing and it looks as though my pieces are coming together.

One thing I do have an issue with.. more like.. a Pokemon I have an issue with.

Fang..
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/262.gif

He's been my pup since the very very beginning.. and was a solid partner.. but lately, he's just been performing below par, and the fact that his STAB is special.. while his ATK is high and wasted with 'Tackle'.. including his weak defenses.. he's just not going to last long. I don't want to carry him until he dies.. he deserves better.

So instead.. it's time.. in this journey.. to box my beloved pup, Fang, and look towards the future.

Fang Lvl 29
Lonely nature :(
- Bite
- Tackle
- Howl
- Swagger

I feel bad that I'm casting him aside.. especially what he's gone through during his young life being all alone [lonely nature] and never being good enough for others. But.. it's a dog eat dog world.

I box him, /save file.

Preparing to go to the sandy fields.. not looking for much. Then onto my next mission. Be ready to see Goblin catch up to the rest of my squad before my next gym battle. He will be needed in order for my team to continue on. Definitely.

Who will by #6 on the team? Only the Nuzlocke Gods know.

^ Major fricking congrats on Shiny Skarmory! That's insane luck! Btw funny you mentioned the natures thing, it's because of Emeralds broken RNG. look it up, it's pretty weird.

__________________________________________________ ____


Okay so I have some good news, and some bad news. Bad news first. After training Lily to level 35, I was rebattling a trainer with a Breloom, and used Sludge Bomb, bringing it down to the red. Counter, and Lily's life is over. Better her than one of my other members, but still...

Now the good news. I was gonna train up Planty the Lileep, but I decided against it. I moved on, destroying trainers as I went, and eventually Killer evolved into Flygon. Then I caught a Mightyena. Eventually I got around to the Safari Zone. If you don't know, there are four zones in the Hoenn safari zone. Each one has different pokemon, so I treated them as different areas. In the SouthEast area, I immediately ran into a Natu, and caught it. Named it Psycho. SouthWest area, ran into Oddish, passed since I already had caught one, and didn't want another that bad. Then I ran into Wobbufett who ran away after mocking me with three wiggles a couple times. NorthWest, ran into an Oddish, ran away. Went into another battle and..... a fricking PINSIR appeared! 5% fricking chance! I tried not to get my hopes up, after all, what were the chances of me actually cathing it? I threw a ball, wiggled three times broke out. I threw a couple more and it broke out. I was surprised it had stayed so long. But just one more ball and I had it! Pinsir is one of my favorite pokemon so I was extremely excited. She was named Penny and had a neutral nature. I've started training her up, and I can already tell she'll be a powerhouse if I can keep her alive.

Aww man, you shoulda left Lemon unevolved until he got Earthquake. Numel gets it at 35, but now he'll have to wait until 37. Not a big difference, but I'd say it's worth it.

Also, holy crap you got lucky with that shiny Skarmory. I mean, what are the odds of getting a shiny version of something with a 5% encounter rate as your first encounter!? Not only that, but it's a Pokčmon that is actually good in battle, and looks pretty cool as a shiny. Aaaaah I'm so jealous :<

Pokemon Fire Red Nuzlocke.

Device: Android Razr Maxx

1). Catch first pokemon you see.

Roughly 15 years ago, I attempted to be Champion of the Kanto region.. to reign supreme over the entire land and people.. as Pokemon Master.

Unfortunately.. I was young, naive, and had no real grasp at the task at hand.. and ultimately fell to my rival, Gary.

Now, in the present time, Gary has turned this world into an unbearable living environment with his army of Gyarados running rampant in the waters.. his swarms of Dragonite and Charizard soaring over the towns attacking anyone in sight.

This region needs a hero.. a change. But it's too late in this day and time.. the damage has been done, women have been raped, and children have died.

In order to truly right the wrong and change the future for the better, Prof. Oak and I need to travel back in time, back to where I started my journey.. and take the Champion spot away from Gary, and set things right.

Press Start, and the time warp will begin. Everything you once knew will be gone, and the fate of the entire world is in your hands.

http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342581660351.png

I picked my poison.. now let's go with it.

http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342583081697-1.png

Who to choose.. who to choose..

Approximately 15 years ago.. I chose Squirtle. It was a trusty companion, but as we all know.. I fell short. Do I go with him again? Do I rekindle the memories we once had and go for the 'ship together?

http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342583093103.png

Do I betray what I know? Do I choose the ying to my yang?

http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342583098090.png

I look into the eyes of this Pokemon.. this fiery yet sad Pokemon. It looks as though he has the same look I had in the future.. the lonely yet determined look that has things to prove and great things to do.

http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342559538998.png

The battle has begun.. again..

http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342581671643.png

Drew 1 - 0 Gary

Charmander.. who agreed to the name 'Zippo' smoked the Squirtle. It was quite a start to our journey. Zippo isn't completely settled on his name.. and tbh I'm not surprised. After reading a lot about Charmanders over the years.. I know it takes a long time for them to respect you and listen.. to trust and fight beside you and not against you. It will be a wild ride for sure.

http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342560255965.png

His picture after the fight. His stats are looking promising as well. I'll post a picture of that soon enough.

http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342581981368.png

We travel north, get a package and deliver it back to Oak.

http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342581780758.png

Once I am given the Pokedex for Oak's mission.. [which i will continue to not complete as I didn't last time.. lol] And Pokeballs to catch some more partners.. the journey has officially begun.

Until next time.

So here i'll post my advance through a Nuzlocke run in Emerlad.

This will be my second run, i have recently failed my first try due to the lack of patience. 12 pokemon lost so quickly, Lilly the Dustox with Roxanne, Flow the Marill poisoned in the wild, a Wingull and a Magikarp i could not even catch, Jelly the Tentacool and Bass the Wishmur in the wild, Ena the Poochyena and Kalien the Skitty with May´s Mudkip, Windy the Taillow in the hands of Brawly and finally Trick the Kadabra, Tracy the recently catched Electrike and Flame, that fiery Combusken fell for May's Marshtomp before reach Mauville.

-----------------------------------------------------------
Chronicles of a Nuzlocke Run

So, with more Patience i'll restart the challenge, same rules as past
-Pokemon that faint is permaboxed
-Only first pokemon (i'll count each level of a cave as new area and water/grass in a same route as diferent areas)
-No repeats
-No buy items
-Ramdom starter.
-Can use Berries but have to plant one of the same species found in that soil (that means i can't plant Oran/Sitrus Berries everywhere)

I just moved to Littleroot, time to set the clock, visit May and start a journey. I foud Birch being attacked by a wild Zigzagoon, in order to help him, i have to choose a pokemon, i rolled a dice and BAM! ;252;, the hardest one, at least has access to absorb wich can be very usefull.
I decided name him Light.
I beated May at Route 103, then back in the lab Birch gave a dex, he was sad when i told him i'll go for a Nuzlocke. "So, you're not planning fill the dex" he said. "This journey is for growth and learn, not for collections" i replied.
The route 101 gave me a female ;261; I named her Anya. In route 103 after running from TEN poochyenas, a female ;263; apeared, i named her Wanda. Pick up can help me a lot in this run. Route 102: male ;265; called Aaron. Decided to box Anya, since Wanda gets STAB for tackle and headbutt, has only one weakness and pick up. Maybe Anya can help in the future.
Reached Petalburg, my dad seems to be proud of my dessition, Wally came and I have to teach him how to catch a pokemon, went to the tall grass and "Whoa" a Ralts, lucky him.
Time to grind in route 102, Aaron reached lvl 7 and evolved! it´s a ;268;. After some more training, i decided to continue. Route 104 gave me a female ;278;, I named her Feather. Sadly, a wild Wurmple critical-hited Feather, my first fallen pokémon.
Petalburg Woods. I found a Male ;285;, named him Fungi and put him in the box, a Breloom would help a lot later in the game.
Route 116 caught a female ;290;, it's a great pokémon, also I'll have an extra friend when she evolves. Named her Misato.
Rustfur tunnel gave me a male ;293;, named him Echo, put him in the box. After some training I think i'm ready for Roxanne.
I faced Roxanne. Light took her three pokemon, I feared for him when Nosepass used block, but everything went all right.
Now i have a lot of training to do to face May and travel to Dewford. But for now i'll rest.


My team so far.
Light ;252; lvl 15
Aaron ;269; lvl 13
Wanda ;263; lvl 10
Misato ;290; lvl 7


Fallen

BOX THE SKARMORY IMMEDIATELY!!

Also, using revives you find on the ground...that's not exactly the point of zuzlocke. If it faints it's dead, you can't use it again. As for me well, look at my sig. I'll play ruby again later today.

19th July 2012, 12:28 AM
Yeah, I don't see why people think it's okay to revive Pokčmon in their Nuzlocke runs, no matter how much they limit it. It says right in the main rules that when a Pokčmon faints, they cannot be used again. No ifs, ands, or buts!

(This is kinda off-topic, but... Chidori, you say in your signature that everyone always has to have an Electric, Grass, Fire, Water, and Flying type in every single team ever, but you don't have any Flying types in the team displayed immediately above said statement... Also, why is it that almost every single BW2 team I see has an Ampharos and an Arcanine? I mean, I like 'em as much as any other guy, but it's kinda strange how seemingly nearly everyone on this whole forum is going to use one.)

I don't see why it's necessary to get on people's cases if they want to tweak the rules a little to make it more fun for them. I mean, the point IS to have fun, isn't it?

Congrats on the Shiny! <3
With my luck, the shiny would have (a) fainted, or (b) be a Spinda...though, I wouldn't mind a Spinda xD
Congrats again.

Fire Red Post 2

As I head North to use up some Pokeballs, I land in Route 1 and run into a Pidgey.
http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342592750737.png
I'm pleased to find a Pidgey over a Rattata, and catch him easily.

I name him Relent, then notice his nature.. Quiet. Welp, I'll be boxing him. Possibly the worst nature, and no need to get desperate in using unwanted Pokemon just yet.

I then go to Route 22, West. And I'm unsure exactly what Pokemon are around. I think there are the Nidorans, a Mankey, Spearow, and Rattata.. so I am hoping for maybe the Mankey tbh.
http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342592762633.png
Spearow shows itself, and as a flier would be nice, I attempt the catch.

I name her Peach, and am also pleased with the nature of her. Can put on some bulk during the journey for sure.

I do a bit of leveling up for Peach and Zippo.. hoping to get my team ready for my next battle vs Gary.. but unfortunately things start looking ugly early..
http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342589398940.png
It's kind of tiring at how many critical hits fly around. You really can't take any battle for granted. It's kind of ********.. and now you know why I hate Rattata so much. A bit frustrated tbh.

I need a teammate.. anyone.. anything.. I head North to Route 2, hoping for anything.. just something that can hold it's own for a bit.
http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342592755384.png
I run into Bindle the cute Weedle. Beedrill? Sure, I'll go with that. Hell yeah.

Well, like I mentioned before.. crits are running rampant.. especially when it takes 4-6 hits per Pokemon to faint.. so I guess the odds are higher. I never put Bindle into extremely dangerous battles.. but when a crit happens and your XP is already small compared to high levels, it's a drastic moment.

My journey so far, to change the past and re-write the history books is looking meek and depressing overall. Zippo the Charmander is very beast-like right now.. able to handle anything, and we're growing together well. But in order to become a Champion, we can't do it alone.

We head to the Forest, hoping for literally anything. The Forest has plenty of possibilities.. and I land next to a..
http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342592729393.png
Welcome Wormy the Caterpie. It's not a Pikachu.. it's not a cool Beedrill, but it can be a quality Poke.

I travel back South to train, and although Wormy takes a while to get going.. evolves in almost no time, and becomes a Metapod [obv]
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/011.gif
Once Wormy gets to level 9, I decide to take a chance vs Gary.

Tough move.

Wormy was not ready.. I was a bit too confident, and should have better prepared my team.

He was able to hit Pidgey a few times, but ultimately had to switch out to Zippo.. and allow him to pull out the match of his life in order for me to not lose one or even both of them. Squirtle thankfully knows no water-type attacks yet.. so it was a tackle v scratch battle. Which I ultimately won thanks to a few Tail Whips that just wasted turns.
http://i625.photobucket.com/albums/tt332/Scud88/1342621693571.png
This cannot happen again, need more composure. My ultimate downfall in every Nuzlocke.

I'm currently saved at the entrance of the Viridian Forest, preparing my travels towards Pewter City.

Since going back in time and getting back into the mix of battling and training, it's almost all brand new to me again. It's been such a long time since I've had to go on such a journey and honestly, I started out a lot better back then with my Squirtle. In no way am I regretting choosing Charmander, and in no way am I regretting traveling back in time to attempt to make the world a better place and to overthrown Gary.. it's just going to take a bit longer than expected.

So im back, for a bad reasonb though.

Today I decided to play my nuzlocke game.Anyway, I beat the trainers in Mt. Moon, then continued to cerulean city.I healed, then went to Nugget bridge to battle Gary.I was ready, or so I thought...
First, my team. was something like this
Pidgey lvl 15
Ivysaur lvl 16
Mankey lvl 15
Butterfree lvl 14
So I send out pidgey to battle Gary. He sends out his first pokemon : Pidgeotto. Then I see it's lvl 18 (I think?). Right then I know I'm in trouble. Rapunzel does about half, then dies.Unfortunately, it doesn't end there.One after one, do to dumb crits, Peat and Fasha drop. NOO! All I am left with are May, with me now, and Unagi in the box. I am facing Gary's last Pokemon, a Rattat with a paralyzed May. I am litterally starting to think I'm going to have to Restart the Entire Challenge, But May barely wins.
So now I have two horrible Pokemon, a Bad natured Butterfree and a Magikarp at lvl 5.I train Unagi 2 levels, Then face Nugget bridge, only using May (because Magikarp only has splash) I win then go into a new area, Route 24. In the grass I find... Weedle. Really? I catch it do to lack of a reason not too, but it also has a bad nature and stats, Even as a Beedril. I nickname her(another girl) BEEdle. Then I head to route 25 and Find... Abra! Cool, right? Wrong. I forgot to move May up front to use sleep powder, and it teleports away.

So the way things look so far, I have no chance of beating Misty. I am going to fail horribly unless I grind Unagi into evolving.

Aaaaand my Nuzlocke has failed. Roxanne's Geodude took out I Liek It with a crit Rock Tomb, and then Nosepass cleaned up Peanut. RIP, my friends. Obviously, my boxed Pokemon shared the same fate. :( At least I didn't grow too attached to them.

My adventure has just started. I have chosen a "Halo" theme for my challenge, and will be naming my Pokemon accordingly.
I hopped out of the truck, which that biiottch of a mom made me ride in the back of apparently and eventually saved prof. Birch, who
thanked me by allowing me to keep my Mudkip. I'll attempt to update daily if any signficant changes are occuring.

My ruby nuzlocke is over. All my pokemon died. Poison for Zigzag. I caught a Makuita and Illusime (forgot the nicknames) and they died. And then Kip...oh Kip...he blew up. Literally. Voltorb used self destruct, landed in a crit. Well, I'm gonna do a new nuzlocke now. What should I do?

Second day

A lot of things had pased

The day begun with the chase of the Aqua Grunt.
Alo VS. Team Aqua Grunt
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/290.gif VS http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/261.gif

I thinked Misato with a Harden/Leech Life Combo could take out that poochyena and gain a couple of levels. A critical hit ruined the future of a good pokemon. wanda hitted that poochyena with anger and finished him. Did some grind and went back to Rustboro.

Alo VS. May

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/269.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/263.gif VS. http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/270.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/255.gif


I had no problem wiht Lotad, neither with Torchic.
I went south to Mr. Briney's then more south, during the travel i was thinking on how easy I lost Misato, I have to be more pessimist and expect the worst, that way nothing will surprise me.

Once in Dewford i fished a level 10 ;129;, named C.Wake, put him in the box, I think ill train him for Flannery.

Granite Cave gave good results: in 1F i found ;63;, throw him a great ball, cross fingers and catch him, i named him Shazam. B1F an ;304; called Metalhead. The best part came in B2F where a ;302; received me!!!. She was hard to catch, broke two great balls, and finally with my last ball, a simple pokéball, she decided to be part of my team, named Violet.
Violet grow very fast and she is very powerfull, it's a shame that has Adamant nature, so i can't count on STAB Faint Attack, but her Shadow Ball will be powerfull. During the training in Granite Cave Light wanted to evolve, but I better wait untill he gets Mega Drain, so i gave him an everstone.

I think I am ready to face Brawly, Violet kicked every trainer in the gym, but i'm not sure if Brawly's pokémon have somethin "just-in-case-of-a-troll-sableye". I'll give Violet the silk scarf to power up her Fury Swipes for a while.

VS. http://sprites.pokecheck.org/t/119.gif

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/302.gif VS. http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/066.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/307f.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/296.gif

Ok I just beat him, it was realy easy since none of his pokes could damage Violet, they got trapped into infinite Bulk Ups and Reflects, but i ignore all that defense boost with Night Shade :]

My team leaving Dewford
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/263.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/269.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/252.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/302.gif
Wanda, the lvl 17, pick-up Zigzagoon.
Aaron, the lvl 17 resistant Dustox
Light, the lvl 19 waiting for MegaDrain, Treecko.
Violet, the lvl 20 Sableye that swept alone Brawly's gym.

Now I'm heading to Slateport, thinking in my next challenge: Mauville's Wattson, none of my friends can take it down... I'll need lot's of training.

I decided to go for my my Route 110 pokemon before do the Slateport stuff. It's a ;316;, I named him Sir Tache. I think he can replace Aaron, since Swalot its more bulky, the only bad news are that he has Sticky hold :/ I also found Birch. he tried to convince me or quit the challenge an and work in the pokedex, like May. I kept silent.

It's time to face May, the last time this was my last battle...

VS May

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/316.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/264.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/269.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/252.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/302.gif VS http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/278.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/256.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/271.gif

I decided to keep Aaron, since confusion and gust deal hard damage to combusken.
First she send a Wingul, i started with Sir Tache. I used yawn, the amnesia, with Wingull sleeping, I used a potion and restore sir Taches hp to 90% beat it with 2 sludges. Then Combusken, i used yawn, but he used focus energy on the first turn and woke up at the first turn. Its peck got crit and left Sir Tache in low yellow health. I sent Aaron who recived another critical peck. Aaron tried to hit him with a gust, but Combusken was faster and finished him with an ember. That was painfull, I saw him grow from a defenseless wurmple. Bye-bye, Aaron. I sent Wanda, riscking her to a double kick, but she is very fast and hited Combusken with a headbutt and it flinched! Now a cut an it's done. Thank god may don't use potions. Finally Violet took easily her Lombre. Time to go back and heal, then up to Mauville.

I went west of Mauvile to train, obviously I can't face wattson for now, catched a female ;043; in route 117, named her Ramona.

During the Winstrate battles, Light learned Mega Drain and I let him evolve. I think I´ll level up Violet and Night Shade my way against Magneton. It seems to be the only way to do real damage to it :/

VS. http://sprites.pokecheck.org/t/120.gif

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/317.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/302.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/253.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/264.gif VS. http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/100.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/309.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/082.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/310.gif

It was a long battle against Wattson, but I finally win and no one in my team died. I started with Violet just to avoid the use of Selfdestruct, Voltorb was easy, but he paralyze her. So here came Electrike, i sent Sir Tache who is now a Swalot, used a couple of Amnesias while it Howls, then just a sludge and he is off. Magneton came and i decided stay with Sir Tache, first Sonicboom, I used Body Slam and got Paralysis hax :] then i keep hitting him with Body Slam since i encored it in shock wave and Sir Tache recived few damage, but Body slam wasn't good, it also taked few damage and he managed to Thunder wave me. Time came for plan B: Violet. Magneton's encore ended and used sonicboom, so I encored it again and switch. Gess who is imnune to sonicboom? Violet! She Night Shaded one, Wattson healed, then more night shades and magneton is over. Manectric had to face Sir Tache again and i repeated Amnesia+Sludge, he got poisoned so it was easy, I have now the Dynamo Badge :D

So route 112 gave me a Male ;322;, named him krakatoa, i was indecise about keeping him in the team, but when i entered Fiery Path i found a ;324;!!!! One of my favorites fire types and a great pokemon. I catched her and name her Fionna, she is modest, so no Body Slam but it's not very impotant, also she will be my principal ally againt Flannery, the next leader.

Nothing new, got a ;327; in route 113, named her Spot. No shiny skarmory for me :[
Still training, got a male ;270; in 114, named him Lolo.
A female ;041; in Meteor Falls, her name is Marceline.

I was returning to Mauville to take out C.Wake and Fugi from the day care... I Rock Smashed and BAM a ;074; appeared! I catched him, but forgot nickname him, when I reach slateport, i'll rename him Mr.Stone. The sad side it´s that was caugh on route 111, the same as the desert, so, no desert pokemon for me... The only way to have one is catch it on the sand tower, since it's technically a different place.

C.Wake was at level 18 so just needed a bit of training and a rare candy to have a powerfull ;130; :D i put him in my team just as back up, Maxie should be dangerous.

Ok, just as i tought, Maxie was a pain in the ****. Sir Tache took his Mightyena without problem, but his Camerupt left Wanda and Violet in red health, C.Wake took him down but ended with low yellow hp. With the Zubat, that f***ing Zubat i came crazy: I sent Light! Yeah a Grass against a Poison/flying "just for the speed EV" because of that stupid idea I lost Light due to a Critical Wing Attack (I almost cry at this point), then I sent C.Wake (I don't know why did I sent him) He bited the zubat but it survived with 2 or 3 hp and hit C.Wake with another Critical Wing Att. Fionna finished that ****ing Zubat, but the damage was done
;041; ;041; ;041; ;041; ;041;
I have to rest and think on Flannery. and I need to think what will happen with my team.

Decided to finally do a Nuzlocke run of my Emerald about a week ago.

I'm at fortree at the moment, breezing through the gym, though the last three trainers gave me a bunch of trouble so I decided to do some training on route 120 until all my pokemon were level 32 (starter level 34).

And then, I took on Winona,
I started the battle using Mushmellow, my trusty Breloom against her Swablu, used Mach Punch, and scored a 2KO, while Swablu used Aerial Ace, didn't even chip off half its HP.

After this Winona sent in Pelliper, so I decided to throw in Markus, my own Pelliper, and it quickly develops into a battle of confusion and luck, and luck appeared to prefer Winona, nearly causing a death to Markus, however, with some super potions, Markus prevailed, just barely though.

After Markus had nearly taken it for the team, I figured Winona wasnt a gym leader you would want to mess with, and she sent out Tropius, I sent out my best friend, Phoenix, Phoenix the Combusken, and easily managed it without taking damage.
Winona then sent out a big threat to my team, a Skarmory, since we didn't have anything to effectively counter it, I decided to put my own steel in battle, but from the land, not the sky. And now! Let the epic battle of steels! Sky versus Land, Begin!
I sent out Ronda, my hard rocking Lairon, and spammed Iron Defense like crazy, and then used some Iron Tails, it was a long and harsh battle, but in the end, Ronda managed to beat Skarmory with Struggle.
Then, Winona sent out her ultimate pokemon, her trump card, her... Altaria.
Against Altaria, I sent out my second catch, Galad the Gardevoir.
I can sum the battle between the last two pokemon up in one word: simple.

Team
;256; Phoenix the Scorching Combusken Level 34 (Female)
;279; Markus the Agile Pelliper Level 32 (Male)
;282; Galad the Eccentric Gardevoir Level 33 (Male)
;286; Mushmellow the Trusty Breloom Level 32 (Female)
;294; Whisploud the Silent Loudred Level 32 (Male)
;305; Ronda the Hard Rocking Lairon Level 32 (Female)

Reserves
;042; Bato the Gaping Golbat Level 28 (Male)
;333; Winter the Timid Swablu Level 29 (Female)
;351; Castafiore the Shining Castform Level 26 (Male)
;357; Tropana the Banana Loving Tropius Level 27 (Female)
;359; Yuki the Disastrous Absol Level 30 (Female)

Deaths
;261; Poochy the Poochyena Level 3 (Male)
Poochy died when the poison sting of a wurmple in Route 104 poisoned it, and when it went in battle against a ralts on route 102, it died :( It was my very first catch in my very first nuzlocke :( while I might have captured the Ralts (who is now a gardevoir and on my active team if you were wondering), I lost a friend, a Poochy kind of friend.

P o k e m o n . R u b y . V e r s i o n . N u z l o c k e
I went away this weekend, with a 3 hour car ride. This gave me plenty of time to work on my nuzlocke challenge, and I got throught a solid amount of the game. I was insanely lucky to find a shiny Zigzagoon first thing on the route due West of Petalburg City. Later on, while descending Mt. Chimmney and the Jagged Pass, I got another blast of luck, encountering a shiny Machop in the first patch of grass I hit. Machop was sitting in the PC but during my challenge of the Lavaridge City gym, Flannery's Torkoal was able to KO Jorge (Harriyama) with Overheat. This left a hole in my playing team, and due to the rampancy of Geodude, Graveler, Poocheyena, and Mightyena that trainers have all over the place, another Fighting type to replace it was in my best interest, so what better of a choice then my freshly caught KEYES, the shiny Machop. I have just defeated the Lavaridge gym, and recieved the go-goggles. My next move is to the desert for some hardcore training, and hopefully I will be able to catch a Trapinch as having Flygon later on in the game could be a blessing. Well that's all I have for now! I am planning to strengthen my Pokemon on defeat my fathers gym tomorrow so I can finally get the Surf HM and give CRTR a good STAB move. I will post an update tomorrow, hopefully Machop will be strengthened enough, because he will be very useful in fighting the multitude of Normal types at the next gym. Until next time! John Wallrein~


The team at the moment looks like this. I am hoping that Electrike will
evolve soon, as well as Machop. Linoone's Pickup ability has became
a blessing and I have picked up countless amounts of Rare Candy,
PP Up, Protien, HP Up, and the list goes on.

@John Wallrein - oh god, man, not one, but TWO shinies almost at the beginning of a Nuzlocke? You're really lucky, congrats :)


Also, I started my first Nuzlocke yesterday. It's on LeafGreen and here are my rules:

1. Only catch 1st Poke in area (route, cave, different cave levels, grass/water on a same level are different areas also)
2. No duplicates, can only catch one Poke from a family (that means if I catch Rattata, I cannot catch another one on a different route, also, I can't catch any Raticate). If the duplicate is the first one to appear on a new route, no new Poke from that route for me.
3. I can only use healing items I find, excluding revives. I can only buy Pokeballs (and their variations), TMs, evolution stones, some other stuff...
If the Pokemon faints, I have to put him in a box and cannot use him again.
4. All Pokemon I catch must have nicknames.

As it's my first Nuzlocke, I'll be using shift setting, not set.

I think that's pretty much it, so let's get going.

Telling Oak my name is Red and his grandson is called Blue is a tradition. It's also the truth, more or less. However picking Bulbasaur isn't really a tradition, as during my journeys through Kanto a usually go with a Pikachu. But I like Bulbasaur the best, so here we go:

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/001.gif

I call him Drain.

And then, our first battle. Blue picks a Charmander and they get beaten up. I know we will be great partners, me and Drain.
Oak sends me to the nearest town to run him an errand. I quickly retrieve Oak's parcel and head back to Pallet. I find Oak and Blue arguing again, oh god why? I wanna get out of there ASAP, so I give Oak his parcel, grab a Pokedex an a handful of Pokeballs and head to Route 1. My journey can officially begin.

I hope I'll find a Pidgey there, however it's a Rattata. Ok then, Rattata it is. Tackle. Tackle. Critical hit! Damn... Doesn't matter, Viridian city, crazy old guy teaching me how to catch a Pokemon. He's slightly deaf and yelling (NO CRITICAL HITS, YOU HEAR ME?!). Ok, ok, I got it. Route 2. Weedle.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/013.gif

His name is Needle. Level 4. Let's got to route 1, I'll train you there. Nice, level 3 Rattata jumps out of grass and Needle stings her. Again. And again. It's so easy, she's only whipping het tail. And then, only left with 1 HP, she uses Tackle - it's a one hit KO. She tailwhipped Needle almost to death, in his first battle. Poor sucker, he didn't die, but went crazy. Everywhere he looks he sees Rattatas whipping their tails. He has to stay in the box, hopefully, one day, he'll get better.
We head to Viridian Forest, hoping for a new team member. Caterpie, cool. Tackle. Critical hit! (Drain, what did I tell you about critical hits on Pokes we want in our team?). Nevermind, route 22 it is. Something jumps in frontz of us. Is it a man? Is it a pig? No, it's Mankey! The pig pokemon. (what?)

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/056.gif

I named her Chimp. So me, Drain and Chimp head towards Pewter city and our first badge. Brock and his rock Pokemon can't stand a chance. I get my first badge, heal up and onwards to the route 3. Another few trainers who can't stand a chance, until... A trainer with an evil, altough a little derpy looking lvl14 Spearow stand in our way. Level 14. Drain is also lvl 14, chimp only 12 or so. Both have weakness to Spearow's Peck. But remember, I told you he's a little derpy looking. Always using Growl and letting us beat him up. Way to go!
A weird thing happened. So far, Chimp was hit by a poison type move twice, and we had to run for Pokecenter both times. And since then, it happened everytime she was hit by anything even remotely smelling of poison. Every. Single. Time. Oh well, poison types will need to be handled some other way.
I also realize I have tons of money. Really, you would'nt believe it. I wasn't buying anything, so I head back to Pewter city and buy Poke Balls. A LOT of them. I don't even know how am I able to carry them all.
On route 3 again, and we catch a Pidgey!

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/016.gif

Her name is Airith (Combination of Air and Aerith from Final Fantasy VII. Let's hope she won't meet the same fate as Aerith did.)

We reach Pokecenter under Mt. Moon. A shady guys tries to sell us a Magikarp. Why not? It'll be a while until we get an Old rod, so we take it.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/129.gif

Meet another additon to my team, RedHerring.

Mt. Moon: We are able to catch Vampie the Zubat and WeirdEyes the Paras. Right this way to the Box 1, guys. We beat some Rocket grunts. And we meet with a some kind of maniac. We beat a Dome fossil out of him, cool.
At the other side of Mt. Moon there's a fight. Two Black belts, one kicking, one punching. I settle the argument by teaching Chimp both Mega Kick and Mega Punch, Bye guys.
It's route 4 and we catch a Sandshrew.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/027.gif

Beirut. I always wanted one.

We proceed to kick Blue's *** and win a Nugget from the Grunt at the bridge. At route 24, a Caterpie runs toward my Pokeball. Sorry, Derpie, you're going to Box. Route 25 aaaand - an ABRA! Holding a spoon! Sleep powder, Poke Ball, caught. Awesome. His name is Shazam, but when I realize I can't trade, therefore I can't get Alakazam, my excitement quickly dies. Just.. go to Box 1 for the time being, ok? I bet you don't even know who caught you, the Sleep powder was just too fast.
Bill. WHAT. THE. HELL? What the hell were you trying to do? You really creep me out, but thanks for the SS Ticket anyway.
By the way, I forgot to mention, Drain evolved into Ivysaur and Airith into Pidgeotto. They beat Misty easily.

Route 5 - Meowth. I call him Maneki. As in, Maneki neko. Those cat-shaped lucky charms. I soon find out he has the ability Pickup. Quite useful, you're staying with me for now.
Route 6 - Everything is going well. The first Poke is a Pidgey, oh well. We catch Digglet, Digga, in Digglet's Cave and Sparrow the Spearow at route 11.
And you know what? This:

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/130.gif

RedHerring, I'm proud of you. You've been a pain to train, but you made it. You're gonna kill 'em all.

SS Anne was hard. Really. Only after all my Pokes were at 1/4 their health, one of them paralyzed and one poisoned (really, really dangerous) did I find out there's a nice lady who'll heal you. Neat. We get Cut, teach it to Maneki. We beat Surge. Beirut and Drain manage to do it quite easily. Also, I hate SonicBoom. We head through Digglet's cave to route 2, get Flash, teach it to Maneki and find a kid who wants to trade their Mr. Mime for an Abra. I hesitate and decide against it. Back in Digletts's cave, no reason to be afraid, right? Wrong! After all those lvl 19 Digletts a level 29 Dugtrio digs out of ground in front of my lvl 23 Chimp. Damn! Arena trap! However, Dugtrio is drunk or something, because it can't hit me and falls easily. So no worries, I'm almost at the end of the tunnel. Whoops, another Dugtrio. This time, more angry. Guess it was the poor fellow's wife or something. Thi is getting really tough, Chimp is a little hurt, there is arena trap... I remember I have found an X Defend and Super potion not too long ago. But even then, Chimp emerges victorious with only 2 HP left. Have to be more careful.

Route 9 - Pidgey, damn. Route 10 - Welcome aboard, Gyro the Voltorb. Please, allow me to show you the way to Box 1. Dark Tunnel - Stoner the Geodude. Another one joins the others in Box 1, I hope they're happy there.
Also, Beirut evolves!
Route 7 and 8 - Pidgeys. Again and again. Oh well.
I arrive at Celadon city. I have lots of money, so i buy evolution stones and a lot of coins for game corner. I'm too lazy to try and win. I realize there is a gym in here, Airis is able to fly through it single-handedly (single-wingedly?).
I find another Rocket thug in Game Cornes, trying his mind tricks on me ("I'm guarding this poster for no reason at all. There's nothing behind it, no secret switch to open secret doors to secret hideout, no way."). I beat him, find a Lift Key for the elevator (ehm) and beat Giovanni's sorry ***. As I'm kicking him out, Silph Scope falls out of his pocket, nice.
On the way out of city I decide I want to see it from the tallest buiding available. At the top I find an abandoned Eevee, name him Morpheus, promise him not to EVER abandon him and send him to Box 1. Talk about abandoning... But I'm still a better person than Giovanni, really! I just decided to train that Mr. Mime as a 6th member of my team. His name is Mimien. I aslo give him Abra's TwistedSpoon, that's how good I am!
While leaving, an old granny hands me a cup of boiling hot tea. I proceed to throw it into my backpack, not thinking, and yell "Thanks, Grandma" at her. At the gates of Saffron city I notice a really really thirsty guard. "Here, have this used tea bag, make yourself a tea. " "Thanks man, just what I needed. The town is under the control of Team Rocket, but since I'm not thirsty anymore, you can go in." Weird guy... Anyway, I can't do anything about the rocket's presence in Saffron, but I find an interesting building. What is it? I enter and run into a fight right away. I realize I made a mistake soon enough. With horror in my eyes. Level 9 Mimien faces level 31 Machop. Pidgeotto, cover him! In the process he gets pretty hurt, but still manages to take the Machop down. However, more Pokes get hurt. We are victorious, but a savage Blackbelt runs towards us - "I WANNA BATTLE!" Damn. Damndamndamndamn. We almost made it. Almost. Their levels were just too high. In the end, Machoke takes down my Sandslash, Beirut. Using Revenge. And a critical hit.

Broken, we run to the nearest Pokecenter just to find out Beirut was hurt pretty badly. He won't be able to fight again, and so he'll stay in a Retirement box with a slightly crazy Weedle. It's a shame, there was a lot of potential in him.

Now, who'll be replacing Beirut in our team? Digga? Ok, Digga, come on! But first, Mimien needs training - Pokemon Tower it is. Mimien soon reaches level 28 and rescues Mr. Fuji. Also, exorcises a fierce ghost of Marowak. And catches a Gastly, Fright. That Mime is a handy dude.

Now, standing in Lavender Town, which way are we gonna take? to the west, to cycling road? Or to the south, where a sleeping Pokemon is blocking the way? Soon we'll see.

My team so far:

Yesterday I decided, after much thought, to head to Citadark Island. I trained Zyphre (Vibrava) so he could take advantage of Dig. I trained Nitori (Golduck) so I could have another special attacker.

Nitori and Freddie (Raticate) both got killed against Area 4's leader, Boyden. I chose to use one of my Rare Candies on Nitori. I went back to Citadark, even after that.

I battled Lovrina with Diana and Nitori, the only girls, out front. She had Attract, and used it accordingly. Diana got hit with a crit Ice Beam from Gorebyss. I just nearly managed to keep Vant alive when I was trying to snag Farfetch'd and Altaria.

I'm going back to Mt. Battle and training everyone to Level 45. I'm also going to train backups in case this happens again, and I'd like some opinions on who I should train.

I still can't believe this. She was my first catch...

Hello guys~ I'm back!
I...am really getting board with Crystal XD, So I'm back...With Sapphire!
My rules are:
1) One Pokemon in each new area...bla bla bla
2) Once fainted, they cannot be used anymore. (NO REVIVES!)
3) Because Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald has a HIGH Shiny rate when Nuzlocking apparently...I'll be catching any I see.

I'm using Rare Candies this time. Don't ask why.
Also, because the Regis need two Pokemon to be caught (one being super rare) I'll not be hunting them down, unless if I trade the two pokemon I need JUST to fight them.

Anywho, I start off, and soon enough I get my partner.

I have an Emerald Nuzlocke in progress, but I'm taking a break because Norman's freaking me out.

So, I started a Firered Nuzlocke!

Started with a female Squirtle named Andrea, who proceeded to beat Gary, and, once I had the Pokedex and Pokeballs, killed the Rattata I found in a one-shot crit hit. Joy...

Not to be disheartened, I headed off to the side route leading towards the Indigo Plateau, and I found a Mankey! Who proceeded to die in a one-shot crit hit from Andrea... Again. Joy.

However, I did finally find a female Pidgey named Rowena right before Virdian Forest. She proceeded to kill the Kakuna I found. My life's so great.

Team when I challenged Brock: Andrea the Squirtle, level 14, and Rowena the Pidgey, level 14.

I've never trained a Pidgey before, but after she defeated Brock's Geodude, I fell for her.

After winning the Boulder Badge, I got the hell out of Dodge. Andrea evolved into Wartortle! And... I found a Spearow who Rowena killed in one-shot. My. Luck. Wow.

So, in order to build up something resembling a reserve, sort of, I purchased the Magikarp, a female named Katrina. I didn't immediately box her, but I'm not actively training her.

I hesitantly step into Mount Moon, hoping I'll be able to get down a floor so I can get a Paras, but luck wasn't on my side, and I almost got to the ladder, but a level 9 male Zubat got in my way. His name's Michael, and he's not going to be actively trained right now either, and put with Katrina in the box later.

I'm about to battle the last of Team Rocket and leave the cave.

Current Team:
Andrea - Wartortle, level 20
Rowena - Pidgeotto, level 20
Katrina - Magikarp, level 5
Michael - Zubat, level 9

Merp. I hope I get an Ekans.

Edit: Male Ekans, get! He's level 6 and his name is Amir.

Edit 2: Aaaaand, Amir has died... I'm really sad about that. I was looking forward to using an Ekans/Arbok, but I guess he was too fragile for someone who doesn't pay much attention...

I breezed through the Nugget Brigade with my awesome duo of Wartortle and Pidgeotto, and all of a sudden, I tripped over a male Oddish... After trying my best not to kill it, we caught him! Welcome to the team, Cameron.

I'm en route to Bill's cottage, and I gotta say. Cameron is really holding his own! Woo. Should I try and catch something on Route 25?

I have made quite a good advancement. I have just defeated Winona, with Manectric defeating all of the Pokemon besides Altaria, who was taken down with a team effort between many Pokemon. I am just leaving Fortree City. Vibrava has been leveled up tremendously, mostly due to the fact that it doesn't compete well on its own, but once it becomes a Flygon it should be great. Linoone was sadly lost along the way. Although I released Hariyamma, I just couldn't bring myself to release a shiny Pokemon, so Linoone has been boxed. My next project is to bring Machoke close to the same level as Marshtomp and Manectric while also bringing Vibrava to the point of evolution. Until next time, John Wallrein ~


The team at the moment looks like this:

A lot's happened since my last update. Currently, I'm in Vermillion City's Gym, searching for the switches. I'm almost ready to battle Lt. Surge. One more level each.

With Amir's death weighing on our minds, Andrea and Rowena helped me train Cameron up to their level. I went into the Gym with Cameron at level 22, I didn't evolve him yet because I wanted Acid earlier and just wanted to be with an Oddish for a while longer, and the others at 23.

Cameron destroyed Misty's Staryu, and Rowena had a long fight with her Starmie, but emerged victorious.

I'm so happy that Andrea and Rowena have made it this far. I'm going to be really, truly upset if I lose either of them. And I'll be devastated if I lose both...

As we were leaving town, though, we ran into a burglar. He worked for Team Rocket, and we easily stopped him. After turning him over to Officer Jenny to be taken into custody, Cameron learned Acid and evolved!

I stopped and looked at my team. Wartortle. Pidgeotto. Gloom. Andrea wasn't the innocent young squirtle I'd first left Pallet Town with, and Rowena has become more mature but more jaded. Amir's death really got to them. There's a bond between the three of us that could never be broken: we were with each other at our journey's Turning Point, at our decent into the Unknown of the Future.

And then there's Cameron, who, at first, was living in Amir's shadow. We didn't want to replace him, but it wasn't Cameron's fault. He brings a light to our team that was necessary to keep us from going off the deep end.

We didn't make any captures during the trek from Cerulean to Vermillion, the two meowth we saw fainted rather quickly...

However, we knew we needed another team member. Lt Surge trained really strong Electric Types. Andrea and Rowena were incredibly vulnerable at this Gym, and Cameron wouldn't be able to carry the team by himself. What if Surge had a Magnemite? Acid would only go so far, and Absorb wouldn't do much.... And our reserves were a Magikarp (Katrina) and a Zubat (Michael), both also susceptible to massive damage from electricity.

So, we set out to Route 11 to find something, only to be faced with a male Ekans.

I didn't catch it. I couldn't, wouldn't, replace Amir with shadow of himself.

Then, while talking to a guy whose team Andrea had stomped, we heard about Diglett Cave. Diglett... A ground type. An underdog, quite literally.

We would catch one.

And that's how Abed the male diglett joined our motley crew.

I've gotta say, I was pleasantly surprised by Abed's raw power. He required no training wheels for his training. Living in a colony, not dissimilar to those of ants, had given him a very militaristic attitude. He doesn't understand social cues. We caught him while he was hunting.

He fits in pretty well, I've gotta say. Cameron took to him like water, grateful to have another guy on the team besides me. His rose-tinted lenses go well with Abed's grayscale.

In order to train up more for the impending battle, we decided to put the party invitation Bill gave us to good use and boarded the S.S. Anne for the night.

When they noticed I had a diglett, they informed me that, while during battles in the stadium it would be okay, he couldn't be underground on the ship.

That's how we came to understand what digletts really look like.

After a while, we found Will, our rival, and we fought again... Abed used Dig, and his Raticate fell in the hole right as I ordered a Magnitude attack... I hope the Raticate will be okay. I don't think I could live with myself if I did to Will what that one trainer did to Amir...

We received Cut and taught it to Abed, and are now in the gym.

It's been a long journey.

I think it's time.... to do a RUBY nuzlocke. Because I feel sorry for my GBA games, just sitting here all unused-like.
Rules:
- You can only use the first Pokemon you encounter in each route/town/city/cave.
- All Pokemon must be nicknamed.
- If a Pokemon in your party faints you must box/release it and not use it anymore in your challenge.

Started the challenge, defeated May and caught my first few pokemon. Time to train 'em up.

My journey ended today...here how it went.
So, I got everyone to level 7, and went off to the town with your dad. After that, I killed something, I think it was a Wirmple. (This caused my journal to end so soon, I believe)
I went into the forest...Ziga-fainted...oh well...
Route 116 came by:
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/263.gif

Ziggy Level 8 female
Nature: Bashful
Met on route 116
Ability: Pick up
...I slapped cut on her, and went to get my next team member:
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/293.gif

LittleBeat Level 7 female
Nature: Naive
Met in Rusturf Tunnel
Ability: Soundproof
I new I was going to get one, and so I was happy. But with two normal types on my team, I grew a heave weakness to fighting...I ignore it and keep going.
I get the first badge and went happily to the next town to get my next member:
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/129.gif

Nema Level 6 female
Nature: Lax
met in Deford Town
Ability: Swift Swim
-_- Who saw that coming?

I go into the cave and see my next member. Mac-
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/041.gif

Zu level 8 female
Nature: Quirky
Met in Granite Cave
Ability: Inner Focus
I was like "NO!!" At first, but after catching her, I grew to love her. Teaching her Steel wing, and going to the next route to level up some more (I delivered the letter to Steven to get the ability to go to the next town before even battling the gym, I also got the Exp Share)

I get all the way to the next route to catch my nextand final) Pokemon.
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/309.gif

Manik Level 12 male (his name came from a friend of mine)
Nature: Sassy
Met on Route 110
Ability: Lightningrod
I was hoping for a Gulpin, but he works too.
So I go to the route around this one (uh...route 103, the east side I think...) and battle a trainer...who had a Skitty...
I though Zu could take it...but she couldn't...

Rest in Peace:
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/041.gifZu Level 8 to Level 15.
I was hoping to show everyone that you, and all the Zubats in the world were not bad Pokemon...
I head back to Dewford to take the gym...and this is when everything CRASHED!
I take out Machop just fine with Ruby, who is a Grovyle now, and then...the fat wrestler baby, Makuhita came!
I had to send someone to get hits on him AND take hits...Manik was first to go...
Then Ruby...
Nema...
LittleBeat...
Zanha...
and finally...Susan.
I have no other way to win now. So I saved...and stopped.
I'll go through Ruby next. With a Torchic this time.
I'll fill you in then.

Rest In Peace:

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/253.gif Ruby, Level 5 to Level 18

Fought through the trainers and reached Route 10 where i caught Orbat the Voltorb. Instead of adding Orbat to my team However, i chose to teach Shockwave to Adele for my electric type for now. I then taught CH'DING Aerial Ace and we headed into Rock Tunnel. Welcome Geeodude the Geodude to the PC Box. Not much happened in the rock tunnel, besides me almost losing CH'Ding, and i got lost a few times. Skip ahead to Route 8 and welcome 9Tailz the Vulpix. I Put Flygon in the PC and add 9Tailz to my team, then i save.

If you're talking about this:
This is a Spoiler

Just go to "Go Advanced" below you're Quick Post thingy.
And in the settings like font and stuff above where you type, click on "Spo", and a pop-up will ask if you want a title, type in a title if you want, and click okay, there you go. :) Hope this helps.

I'll post about my Emerald Nuzlocke later.

Also, I've been away for a while and occasionally checking on my phone, but I couldn't post, So, anyways, I'm back, yay!!!!

31st July 2012, 6:21 AM
So, after my fail, I start an Emerald run off Nuzlocke (with the same rules)
And I start off with:
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/255.gif

Arien (Named after a character of mine, who is a rooster) Level 5 Male
Nature: Hasty (↑Speed ↓Defense)
Met on Route 101
I start with Torchic this time, hoping for a nice, easy run this time around. I never really used Torchic before, so it's a first (I also, fun fact, never used Treeko, ether). And I head off.
My first catch was a happy one:
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/278.gif

Pickle Level 2 Male
Nature: Quiet (↑Special Attack ↓Speed)
Met on Route 103
Pickle...I don't care, it's cute xD
He's good for the gym leader that took my team's life. I bring him along.
My second catch:
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/265.gif→http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/268.gif→http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/269.gif

Iggy Level 4 Male
Nature: Modest (↑Special Attack ↓Attack)
Met on Route 102
I love him~ All I'll say~
I killed something (once again) in that route with the ocean next to it, so poo.
Then...I get something EPIC...
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/261.gif

Pockie Level 5 Male
Nature: Calm (↑Special Defense ↓Attack)
Met in Petalburg Woods
...the game hates me. xD
I head up and around to the next route, and THEN I get some Epicness.
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/063.gif

James Level 7 Male
Natue: Docile
Met on Route 116
*happy face* No way~~ Caught with my only Great Ball!
And I head into the Rusturf Tunnel and catch MiniBeat.
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/293.gif

MiniBeat Level 7 female
Really...she's only here for remembering LittleBeat. *cries*

31st July 2012, 5:52 PM
Here comes my Emerald Nuzlocke update, a lot of things had pased since Maxie beat the crap out of me...
........

I had Wanda ;264; , Sir Tache ;317; , Fionna ;324; and Violet ;302;

Did some grind, found a male ;325; in Jagged Pass, named him Oliver.
Fighted the trainers in the gym and is time to face the leader.

VS. http://sprites.pokecheck.org/t/121.gif

It was easy, Wanda took down Numel. With the Magnitude danger away I sent Sir Tache. He encored slugma in sunny day and maxed sp.def with amnesia, then took him out. Camerupt was also encored in sunny day and Body slam took him out. Torkoal got poisoned and encored in attract. Then the love immobilzed Sir Tache Three times and there was no more encore, so Sir Tache took three body slams and god paralized and red health. Fionna ended the work, it was easy because of the poison and innefectiveness of attract in a girl :]

Went to the desert for some training, lucky me, the "sand tower was there" actually is called Mirage Tower :P
Aaaaand ;328; :D it's a girl, named her Envy.
I choose the lileep fossil, since Light died and i should need a grass type...
I trained a little more at the Desert, but it's an awfull place to train due to the sandstorm damage :/
I went back to Petalburg, took all the trainers in the gym and it's time to face "Dad"

VS. http://sprites.pokecheck.org/t/122.gif

It wasn't easy. I spent all the healing items had against Spinda and Vigoroth, using Sir Tache. Linoone was easy for Violet, But Vigiroth encored her on fake out and spammed faint attacks. When Slaking came i decided to switch, sent Sir Tache, hoping encore him on facade to gain some turns for Violet, but facade was too strong and killed him. R.I.P. Sir Tache. then sent Violet, she did some damage with Faint attacks, thank to blackglasses :P but Slaking was strong and i prefered switch. So i remembered Fionna, she has Protect, I used protect in the attacking turns and smokescreen on the Truant ones. Then ember during the Truant turns... a critical hax and I won. I got the Balance Badge and now i can surf.

Soooo i decided to explore with my new HM and went north Rustboro, to the place you get Focus Punch... Fund a lvl 35 ;072;, name him Clarence. But her comes he worst part, the trainers there killed him :/ and Envy too :/ I flee off as quick as I coul cause Violet and Fionna were low in health too. Now I'm in troubles.
I took out Marceline (;041;), she can be helpfull, gave her exp. Share. Found a ;039; in route 115 (I didn't even know that it appears there, lol)
I went to New Mauville hoping for a Magnemite, but i had a great surprise: a wild ;082; !!! it has like 1% of probability.. It took me all my balls to catch it, was the last, a timer ball the one that worked. I had catched an ;309; in 118, so now i have to decide wich will be my electric...
And Futuresend (Magneton) died, fate has decided that Elesa the Electrike is my new friend.
Fished a Carvanha, but accidentally killed it. Then a ;357; in 119, named him windleaf.
Beated team aqua without problems, Time to face May again, I think Marceline, now a ;042;, would take off Combusken.

VS: May http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/279.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/256.gif http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/271.gif

Very easy :P Marceline Crit Hitted Combusken .D
Got Stevens kecleon ;352; from 120, named George.
Time to get Winona, I think there will be no worries, maybe Altaria...

VS. http://sprites.pokecheck.org/t/123.gif (i love her new sprite :p)

Soooo, Dragon Dance Altaria took Violet, Marceline and Elesa's lifes, A saving headbutt finish it, but i had only two pokemon left and she had three. Fionna took Tropius and Skarmory with supereffective Flemethrower and Wanda Headbutted Pelipper unltil dead.
I saved there and went for a walk to take important desitions.

My team after beating Winona.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/324.gif
Fionna, the blazing Torkoal, lvl 33
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/264.gif
Wanda the usefull Linoone, lvl 31

;334; ;334; ;334; ;334; ;334; ;334; ;334; ;334; ;334; ;334;

So I decided to to include Windleaf in my team, also some water type, i went fishing and got a female ;339; in route 114, named her Marvel.
On my way to lilycove a Manectric killed Wanda. It was weird, i was sad beacuse i had her from the very first route, but i felt happy beacause it was a weak pokemon at this poinT of the game. Very weird.
Caugh a ;353; on Route 221 named her Hexgirl. That means i can get a Duskull from Mt. Pyre :]

Went to safari. There are 4 zones and water, that means 5 pokemon, but i had bad luck :/
Zone 1: ;177;, fled
Zone 2: ;084;, fled
Zone 3: ;127;, fled
Zone 4: No acces w/o acro bike
Water. ;054;, Caught, name him Patillo.

Saved at Lillicove. My team at this point:

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/340.gif
Marvel, Wishcash

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/324.gif
Fionna, Torkoal

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/357.gif
Windleaf, Tropius

RIP (13)

Okay, instead of a Emerald Nuzlocke, I'll do one on Expert Emerald, it's a hack of Emerald to include all 386 Pokemon, and a higher difficulty, so, it's going to be really tough.

--------------------------------------------------------Rules------------------------------------------------------------
1. If a Pokemon faints, it's considered dead.
2. One Pokemon per area, if I fail to catch a Pokemon, too bad.
3. No overworld Pokemon, In my case, in Expert Emerald, I can't catch the starters as overworld.


-----------------------------------------
|Chapter One: The Stone Badge|
-----------------------------------------

Okay, I started, and picked http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/d/d5/255MS.png as my Starter. Oh My God, I just noticed Torchic has Speed Bosst, I guess I'll need it to help me, after all Wallace's Pokemon are at level 90 the first time.
I did all the beginning stuff while managing to not encounter Pokemon on Route 103. I had to train on Route 101 though. I trained Torchic to level 10 before fighting May.
Then, after obtaining my Pokeballs, I caught a http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/7/7b/069MS.png on Route 103, and a http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/1/12/270MS.png on Route 102. I continued to beat all the trainers and did the Wally stuff, then caught a http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/a/ab/029MS.png on Route 104. In Petalburg Woods, I caught a http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/5/52/204MS.png. I saved after catching Pineco.

@ShinyMisty, I know how you feel >.<

I just wiped before getting to Petalburg. I don't know what happened. Well, ok, I do... it was a series of nasty crits from wild pokemon while training up my team. Those things are just awful early game.
Starting my challenge over, hopefully with better luck this time. I'll post when I get past Roxanne.

Shuleek
1st August 2012, 10:02 PM
@Dangertrout - critical hits are awful, I too took my fair share of those, and they always take you by surprise... However, I wish you luck with your next playthrough, hopefully it'll go better.

Everyone else, don't give up. Nuzlockes are never easy and the stories they make are interesting to read (and play through).

Also, finally an update on my LeafGreen Nuzlocke:

(but only a really quick update, I'm too lazy :D)

From Lavender, I head west, to Cycling road, preparing to take down Koga. I also decided I won't be using Digga the Diglett, but rather Poisona the Nidorina I caught in Safari Zone. Probably a bad decision, she fell fighting a wild Raticate (damn Hyper Fangs!). If she managed to take him down, she'Đ also gain her first level. So, Poisona headed to retirement box and Digga was back on the team.

Koga was a peace of cake, Drain the Venusaur and MIMIEN the Mr. Mime handled him easily. Next stop: Saffron!

In Silph. Co.: Everything was going well. Until I met rival, Blue.He wasn't TOO problematic, but then Charizard appeared. As my Gyarados, RedHerring, was pretty exhausted, (and almost all the other pokes too), I needed just one turn to heal up... Pidgeot went against Charizard to give me that turn. But, Charizard proved to be too much for him, and Airith's name caught up to her. Gyarados went back and beat the crap out of Charizard.

Next: Sabrina!

In Sabrina's gym, I was foolish. Sending Dugtrio against Mr. Mime (not even Sabrina's, it belonged to one of Psychics)... I totally forgot Mr. Mime knows Magical leaf... Dugtrio went straight tpoo retirement box.

We stood up against Sabrina, Mr. Mime, Venusaur, Primeape, Gyarados. Not the best combination against psychic types, but could have been worse. And should be enough. Another mistake.

I was able to easily dispatch everything Sabrina has thrown at me. Then, Alakazam came. Only MIMIEN was at the same level, and he wasn't able to stan up against Calm Mind.That Alakazam took down everyone. Drain, Chimp, RedHerring, MIMIEN, Stoner (Geodude, Master of HMs). Sorry guys, I should have been more prepared...

Then I woke up. Still standing in front of Sabrina. She spoke, with a faint smile on her face. "I don't like to battle. But if you try to challenge me now, this is what will happen. You have seen it yourself." Still confused, fighting what I have seen, I run out of Gym, still pondering on what I have seen. Did Sabrina really show me the outcome of our battle? Can she see the future? And more importantly, can she show it to whoever want to challenge her? I don't know, but I'm not taking that risk. I need to train.

(Basically, what just happened: I couldn't handle Sabrina's Alakazam, so I just came up wih this excuse to not start the challenge all over again. I'm a cheap bastard. But hey, it's my first Nuzlocke... And I thought of a new rule: From this point on, if ANYONE dies, it's really a game over. The end. No more excuses. But I just couldn't handle the sight of all my dear partners fainting one after another...)

Training: I didn't train the pokes I already had. I took Loafer the Snorlax out of the box and grinded him to level 42. I also took out Doduo, Head.

Sabrina once again: Snorlax as a physical attacker had no problem Body Slamming his way through her whole team. Alakazam included. One Body Slam took care of that. Loafer, you're the best.

From that point, it was pretty easy. I played carefully, I couldn't afford to lose anyone. Dodrio took his revenge on Fighting dojo, Gyarados took down Blaine, Venusaur took care of Giovanni. After grinding a lot at Victory road (remember, I can only use the items I find, so there's only one response to that - grind like hell!), I was prepared to finish this.

I took on the Elite four. And won. Drain, Loafer, Chimp, MIMIEN, RedHerring and Head, i hereby thank you guys. You are the best! We'll probably also head for Mewtwo sometime soon.

(Mainly Snorlax and Gyarados were invaluable here. Snorlax with Psychic - I know, not the best stats for that, but I don't care - against Agatha's ghosts = AMAZING!)

Badges: 8 Elite Four: Taken down Deaths: 5 (10 if I count the "vision")


I also started an Emerald Nuzlocke.

Rules are the same as before, but i can also buy items. I only played Ruby years ago, I'm not even sure I finished it, so this'll be prectically a blind Nuzlocke.

Picked Torchic, named him Fry. Caught Wurmple (Lil'Bugger), who evolved into Beautifly. Poochyenas, Poochyenas everywhere. A great addition to the team - Marill (Blue). Scarf the Tailow couldn't take a critical hit from May's Mudkip. Bye, Scarf...

First gym was easy. Screech the Whismur joined us. Beautifly steamrolled over the whole second gym. Caught Sableye (Darko) and Aron (Iron). Third gym, no problem.

Then, the family that fights you in front of house at route 111 - Aron had no problem with them, however... In the last fight, for some reason I thought she'd be able to outspeed that Meditite... She wasn't, and Hi Jump Kick took her down... Bye, Iron...

Route 113 - Loudred fought against trainers Swellow, which was always Double Teaming and, well... A critical hit... I'm sorry, Screech.

At this point, team consisted of Fry the Combusken, Blue the Azumarill, Darko the Sableye and Lil'Bugger the Beautifly. We took on Flannery and she stood no chance against Blue. We took on Norman and that was AMAZING! Fry took down everyone except for Slaking. I had to be careful with that, and with his Counter. Sableye, your turn. And Slaking couldn't touch him AT ALL! Faint attack on Truant turn, Detect on attack turn (even though he could only use Faint attack and Yawn, better be careful).

And thus we gor the fifth badge. And I forgot to mention we caught 2 Trapinch, Maw and Jaw (in Desert resort and Mirage tower respectively). Maw was on the team and soon evolved into Vibrava.

We also had no problem with sixth gym, Blue Rollouted the hell out of those damn birds, and could even take a beating from Altaria. (And seriously, THREE gym leaders whose strongest pokemon are at levels ranging from 29 to 33? Sorry, my pokes were way higher while fighting Winona...)

Did some story stuff, caught some pokes, all my pokes were around level 40-42, I thought Tate and Liza will be quite an easy fight. Mainly because of my Sableye and Azumarill. After all, what could possibly go wrong after 3 gyms with practically the same levels? The answer - EVERYTHING!

I lost Vibrava against some damn Kadabra along the way to gym leaders. RAGE! Maw was amazing! (I just remembered, I had a little heart attack when Vibrava used Dig on some Numel, while the Numel used Magnitude... and... LEVITATE! I loved that Vibrava ever since).

Vibrava was sent to retirement and her brother, Trapinch Jaw, was added to the team. I faced Tate and Liza with Sableye and Azumarill, as planned. Sunny day cut the power of my water moves and Sableyes Faint attack isn't the strongest. I was completely unprepared for Claydol.

However, we managed to take down Solrock... And we lost Sableye after that... And we lost Lil'Bugger... And we lost Jaw (poor underleveled guy, used as bait... along with Machop Daredevil, user of HMs). Fry barely survived. Only Azumarill stood firmly. And we "won". With so many losses... I hate Psychic gyms...

Currently, we're in the process of trainin new team members.

Fry the Blaziken, Blue the Azumarill, joined by Mage the Magneton, Cloud the Altaria, Batty the Crobat and probably Brain the Rhyhorn.

Alright, I made it to the first gym this time. One death along the way though. My poor Poochyena from Route 102, Fido, died to a crit from a Taillows Quick Attack. It was a trainers pokemon, but still. I didn't see that coming. :(
I wasn't sure I'd make it against Roxanne, because most of my catches were weak to Rock moves. Sure, Beautifly could Absorb most of the gym... but that Nosepass...... In the end, I decided to use up my Rare Candies (x5) I found along the way to boost my Torchic to level 20. I just didn't want to wipe after all that annoying training. Nincada takes forever to level, and my Beautifly only knew Harden for 5 levels.

Today I challenged Brawly and completely wiped his gym out with a single Beautifly. He is likely crying in a corner as we speak. No deaths this time ^_^
I'm being a little more cautious / grinding a little more than usual for this run. Mainly because I've had too many failures recently due to impatience and want to actually succeed this time.

So.... that was the plan... except I spaced out completely during the fight with May on Route 110, and next thing I knew half my team was dead. Linny, Precious and Monarch are dead. For no reason beyond my spamming A and not paying attention for 5 minutes T_T
I could continue, and train Blaze a little extra for Wattson's gym... but I dunno. I might just scrap it and start over. *save progress* I'll decide later.

for future reference, does reviving a fossil and getting a pokemon at the mansion count as 2 separate areas or can i only do 1 since they are both on cinnabar? same goes for The Hitmon's and lapras, since you sorta have to take lapras from what i remember.

also quick update for my nuzlocke, lost 9tailz the vulpix to a self destruct in the Rocket hideout. No big loss since she was new and weak, Replaced her with fireball the flareon. After Andre wiped out Giovanni, i went to the gym and Had CH'Ding wipe out the gym. Went for HM fly and grabbed a Doduo named Runner. Then with Silph scope in hand i headed back to Lavander to face my rival at a later date.

Sheesh, superluck struck! I got a freaking Hitmontop as my starter pokemon! Gotta say it feels so great since Hitmontop's my fave pokemon overall. Anyone had these kind of luckstrucks too have your fave pokemon as a starter in your Nuzlocke-challenge?

usually i wait to play till others post so i can post my progress. Without the worry of posting i managed to beat my nuzlocke challenge.

67 hours, 4 deaths and a victory.

9Tailz the Vulpix - died in training
Hitmonlee the Hitmonchan - died while fighting Snorlaxes
Adele the Wigglytuff - Died During Sabrinas Gym Battle

Wow, I haven't posted here in a long time.
Not that much has happened anyway though.
I sped through Mt. Pyre, and Phoenix evolved, and I caught a Chimecho!!!
Sadly it's unusable in RSE.
I went through the Magma Hideout, nearly losing Phoenix, Galad and Markus in the process.

Team
;257; Phoenix the Blazing Blaziken Level 38 (Female)

;305; Ronda the Hard Rocking Lairon Level 35 (Female)

Deaths
;261; Poochy the Poochyena Level 3 (Male)
Poochy died when the poison sting of a wurmple in Route 104 poisoned it, and when it went in battle against a ralts on route 102, it died :( It was my very first catch in my very first nuzlocke :( while I might have captured the Ralts (who is now a gardevoir and on my active team if you were wondering), I lost a friend, a Poochy kind of friend.

Hey there, fellow Nuzlockers! I'm starting a Nuzlocke run of all five gens using LG, SS, Emerald, Platinum, White, and White 2 upon release.
Having an extremely successful run on LeafGreen, only having lost my Rattata to a devious Nidoran back on Nugget Bridge.
Going full on with the rules;

#1) All Pokémon must be nicknamed - why wouldn't you? This is a challenge for them too!
#2) Battle mode must be on 'Set' (I always have this on anyways, 'Shift' is an outrageous format option!).
#3) I may only capture the first encountered Pokémon on a route, even if I accidentally kill it or it runs away.
#4) Rule #3 still applies even if I already own the first-found Pokémon (6-Bidoof team, here I come!).
#5) Fainted Pokémon are dead, and are placed in my Cemetery box (just so I don't throw out anything I might find useful for breeding or such).
#6) Pokémon can only be caught on routes and in dungeons; towns and cities don't count except for gift/event Pokémon (i.e. no fishing, surfing or headbutting for Pokémon there).
#7) Event/gift Pokémon are allowed, but still limited to (and counts as the) one Pokémon per area.

As said, only death so far has been Amarant the Rattata, who lost his life to a Nidoran's Double Kick upon the Nugget Bridge.
Poor little guy; he was 400 EXP away from becoming a Raticate, when he would laughed in the face of that same Nidoran as he Hyper Fanged it into dust. You will always be remembered, my friend.

Continuing on though, it's been a relatively smooth process since then.
Just demolished Koga's gym, thanks to Lezard the Butterfree, my Bold trickster, and his Compoundeyes fury. And he thinks he can work status?
Currently heading into the Silph Co. building with my current team;

;003; LVL 34 Sorrel the Venusaur
;012; LVL 38 Lezard the Butterfree
;034; LVL 38 Brahms the Nidoking
;042; LVL 38 Raziel the Golbat
;057; LVL 34 Saevio the Primeape
;134; LVL 36 Mareth the Vaporeon

My sig'll always keep anyone who's interested up to date.

So...I'm back. With LeafGreen.
And I got 60 pokemon in the pokedex and I am about to fight Mewtwo. (I want to know what level my team should be)

So, I caught only two pokemon. Doug the Bold Seal in Icefall Cave (level 45 male) Now he is a Dewgong
And I also caught Pencil the Relaxed Parasect in Cerulean Cave (level 49 male)


I lost KingofKarp from a Weezing, and I killed Zapidos and Articuno.
I want to know what level my team should be before battling MewTwo.
I have the following:
;107; Kanja Docile male Level 57
--I will not be using Kanja because he is weak to Psychic, but being around level 60 or so will help anyways, just in case something HORRIBLE happens.
;103; Eggwoman Sassy female Level 59
--Eggwoman MAY be useful, but she doesn't have really any moves that would do well besides Strength. Still, She could be useful.
;149; Kibou Lax male Level 57
--Most likely he will be used the most. With the moves Earthquake, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, and Fly, I think he is set. Just needs to be high enough of a level.
;089; Quina Rash female Level 57
--Quina was used to defeat both Zapidos and Articuno, and I know she will be killed with one Psychic from Mewtwo, like Kanja. Saying this, she'll only be around level 60 as well.
;087; Doug Bold male Level 52
--I'm a bit iffy with Doug. He knows Ice Beam, Surf, Take Down, and Rest. Like Eggwoman, I think he will only be used if needed.
?;047; Pencil Relaxed male Level 49
--Remembering the past in Pokemon Stadium, Parasect was the BEST counter to Mewtwo! With the move Spore, which is the best sleep move ever, I could put Mewtwo to sleep and then kill him...

I am thinking around 60 to 65. Tell me if I am a moron for thinking on adding Pencil or not.
I will also like hints and or tips for battling him.

Sorry for posting twice at once...but...
this is just stupid. xD
Got all my pokemon to level 60, and Kibou to level 64. Went to battle Mewtwo. Here is the battle:
I send out Kibou
Recover-Fly
Psychic missed-Fly hits. Critical.
Recovers-Earthquake
Safegard-Earthquake
Mewtwo faints.
...
..
.

...
Yeah...that was it.
All that time...and all it took was like...4 to 5 turns.
...Oh well. I'm finally done with LeafGreen! With my death count at 9.
;016; Omlit Level 5 to Level 6
--Death by a wild Spearow.
;019; Tachi Level 5 to Level 19
--Death to a trainer's Raticate.
;050;Minimole Level 20 to Level 22
--Death to Gary's Raticate
;040; King Level 5 to Level 31
--Death to Giovanni's Kangaskon
;111; Nessie Level 25 to Level 25
--Death to Poison (in a trainer battle)
;071; Barboa Level 13 to Level 36
--Death by Koga's Weezing blowing up.
;006; Chaos...my starter... Level 5 to Level 56
--Death by Lance's Dragonite (Hyper Beam)
;134; Namigami Level 25 to Level 56
--Death by Gary's Alakazam
;130; KingofKarp Level 5 to Level 20
--Death by a trainer's Gravaler blowing up

Boxed Pokemon count: 22
Honorable mentioned
;015; Boris Level 3 to Level 36
;082; Kinzo Level 24 to Level 44
;077; Kizo Level 34 to Level 36 (Was going to be part of my team...but never did)
;087; Sarah Level 32 to Level 34 (Again, was going to be part of my team, but Doug came in)

My Team:

I will come back with Ruby. I might start a new Nuzlocke later on. (Maybe one of the GameCube games ;3) But I still have Crystal, Platinum, and Ruby to finish...Maybe later.

I wish everyone luck with their own Nuzlockes. Congratulations to anyone who finished the game, and I apologize to any lost members.

I don't want to jinx this, but I thought I'd throw this up here:

I have a terrible history with Nuzlockes. I'm 0-5 in all the ones I've ever tried, including an attempt on Sapphire a few months ago that was my first attempt ever and saw my whole team get annihilated by May's Wailmer outside Mauville at the 4 hour mark. I've had some good ones (a HeartGold one that saw me get all 8 badges only to get steamrolled by the kimono girls when I forgot that you don't get to heal between battles with them) and some really bad ones (a Platinum nuzlocke where I kept getting critical hit and losing team members while grinding against random encounters), but I've never had a victory.

Well I've been playing a Nuzlocke on Sapphire recently, and it's going really well. As in, I have all 8 badges really well. Here's my team:

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bw/286.png Erika the Breloom, level 43 (Mach Punch, Sky Uppercut, Hyper Beam, Leech Seed)

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bw/295.png Sean the Exploud, level 43 (Stomp, Uproar, Hyper Beam, Howl)

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bw/310.pngGloria the Manectric, level 43 (Spark, Bite, Quick Attack, Howl)

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bw/130.pngDaniel the Gyarados, level 43 (Strength, Surf, Dive, Bite)

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bw/326.pngPorky the Grumpig, level 43 (Psybeam, Psychic, Calm Mind, Confuse Ray)

I haven't decided on a 6th team member yet, but I've got both an Absol (Alabaster, level 33) and a Tentacool (Magellaen, level 38) in the Daycare.

So far, I've only lost two team members, and one (Shaggy the Magnemite) was intentional (I led with him against Kyogre to paralyze it and make it an easier kill for Porky). The other was an unfortunate brain fart on my part (sending my 4x weak Marshtomp out against a Roselia while I was leading with Magikarp to level it up), and even that was just due to bad luck (Marshtomp survived the initial Mega Drain. On the next turn I healed instead of just attacking or switching out to Breloom, and it critical hit Mega Drain'ed him).

I'm not sure how I'll do on the Elite 4 or Victory Road (at the moment, I'm running around battling trainers who want rematches while my Absol and Tenatcool level up at the Daycare), but this is the first Nuzlocke I've ever done where I've made it to Victory Road! Here's hoping I can pull it out!

If not, use them on Alabaster, 'cause they're pretty much the best moves for him. Just remember, all Dark-type moves are special until gen 4, so Absol in RSE might be one of the few instances of a Pokčmon you don't want any STAB moves on.

Actually, if I were you, I might want to replace Daniel with Magellaen. Gyarados isn't too good in gen 3, 'cause most of its moveset is special and its special attack sucks. It's still not awful or anything, just... not very good. It's up to you, really.

I have only used one TM so far (Calm Mind on Porky to help with beating/surviving Kyogre). I was going to put Shadow Ball on Sean before the E4; I figured that'd help him beat the E4 ghost trainer (Hoenn is actually the generation I've played by far the least of all pokemon regions, so I don't have it as memorized as Kanto, Johto, and Sinnoh). And I'm going to wipe the HMs off Daniel and give him Earthquake and...I dunno. Some other physical TM? I'll figure out what.

Yeah...I forgot how much I hated the pre-physical/special split. I actually had no idea it was split by type until a few days ago. :) But I ended up looking it up.

I was actually afraid Alabaster would suck for the same reason you told me to get rid of Daniel. He has no STAB that takes advantage of his high ATK (Daniel will eventually get Bounce, at least, right?).

Nope, Guarados doesn't get Bounce...

A good moveset for Daniel could be: Earthquake, Surf, Bite/Return, Dragon Dance/Return

I'd definitely teach Gloria Thunderbolt, and also give Erika a Grass move like Giga/Mega Drain(for Wallace's Whiscash).

For Alablaster, it could know: Swords Dance, Slash, Bite, Shadow Ball(physical move).

I strongly suggest you get rid of those Hyper Beams since the recoil could hurt you(can't heal.)

For Sean, if it has decent/high special attack, give him: Hyper Voice(if learned, if not, stick with Beam -_-), Flamethrower/Fire Blast, Blizzard/Ice Beam, and a move of your choice.

Hope I helped :). Good luck.

Edit: Okay, caught a Bagon(McNasty) and it's now a Shelgon with: Dragon Claw, Headbutt, Ember, and Brick Break. Should I grind him up to level 50 or should I stick with Batman the Crobat?

I've always had an affinity for Crobats, so my biased opinion is to stick with him. :)


I think I might just forgo having a 6th pokemon entirely and stick with my five member team for the e4. In the meantime, though, I'm going to run around Victory Road and grind my team up to level 50 or so. My Absol is still only level 36 in the Daycare, and maybe I can get it to ~40 while I'm running around grinding. Probably not, though.

Oh, and I use Hyper Beam pretty much as my Stone Cold Stunner: it's my finishing move in a close battle. I almost never use it at a time where the recharge will get me unless I'm completely desperate.

I did end up giving Sean Fire Blast (and Shadow Ball, as well to help with the ghost E4 trainer).

And I have NO IDEA why I thought Gyarados learned Bounce in Gen 3. I thought read that on Bulbapedia, but I must have looked at the wrong thing.


EDIT: Oh, here comes my usual Nuzlocke luck (Nuzluck?). My Breloom got critical hit by a Golbat while I was training in Victory Road. The Golbat got the first move before I could Hyper Beam it, and it got a critical Air Cutter.

EDIT 2: I'VE HAD MY FIRST EVER NUZLOCKE VICTORY!

Here's my E4/Championship team:

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bw/295.png Sean the Exploud, level 52 (Return, Fire Blast, Hyper Beam, Shadow Ball) [Died vs. Steven]

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bw/310.pngGloria the Manectric, level 51 (Thunderbolt, Bite, Thunder, Protect)

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bw/130.pngDaniel the Gyarados, level 51 (Earthquake, Dragon Dance, Thrash, Hyper Beam) [Died vs. Steven]

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bw/326.pngPorky the Grumpig, level 52 (Psybeam, Psychic, Calm Mind, Confuse Ray)

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bw/73.pngMagellaen the Tenatcruel, level 52 (Surf, Acid, Barrier, Ice Beam)

http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/bw/359.pngAlabaster the Absol, level 51 (Aerial Ace, Bite, Iron Tail, Perish Song) [Died vs. Steven]

The entire team made it to Steven alive. I used a little bit of everyone against Sidney (except Porky). Magellaen beat Mightyena; Alabaster beat Shiftry; Sean beat Cacturne, Daniel beat Absol, and Gloria beat Sharpedo. Easy as pie.

Sean was able to sweep Phoebe with Shadow Ball.

Porky was able to sweep Glacia (Calm Mind x6 against her opening Glalie, and then 1 Psychic attack took out her entire team from there).

Magellaen was able to sweep Drake. Barriers + Ice Beams + occasional Full Restores. And I was impressed that I was able to sweep three consecutive Elite 4 members with one pokemon each.

I was not able to sweep Steven, though; nor did my entire team emerge unscathed. I opened with Daniel against his Skarmory. Dragon Dance x6 (while occasionally Full Restoring against Toxic). He ended up switching Skarmory out, and Daniel was able to sweep Cradilly, Claydol, and Armaldo. Unfortunately, Daniel fell to Aggron when I forgot to use a Full Restore after it was confused from Thrash. :( After that, I bought out Sean who proceeded to MISS THREE FIRE BLASTS IN A ROW. I ended up hitting it with 2 Fire Blasts, but it was not able to kill the Aggron, and Sean fell in battle, as well. :( Magellaen came in for the revenge kill with Surf, and that brought Skarmory back out. Gloria was able to make short work of the steel bird. Then came the Metagross, and I was feeling bad. My Earthquake user and my Fire Blast user were both dead. But luckily I came prepared with a backup plan! I sent out Alabaster to use Perish Song opening turn. Metagross responded with Meteor Mash, shuffling off Alabaster's mortal coil. Still, his sacrifice will never be forgotten, because he gave me the means to finish off Metagross. With Perish Song counting down, I sent out Gloria who proceeded to Protect herself from Earthquake for 2 turns in a row (Woo! Lucky double Protect!). With only one turn left on the Perish Song, I switched out to Porky who easily survived Metagross' last Earthquake attempt. The Song claimed its victim, and I was victorious!

Well I started out properly after doing that bit with May and picking your first pokemon. The first pokemon I encounted was a Wurmple. I catched it and decided it would be fun to either have Dustox or a Beautyfly. Route 102 gave me a Poochyena. After I cleared all the pokemon there I went to Petalburg city and met with my dad, who helped wally get his Ralts. If I only didn't get that poochyena! :P

After all that I went to Route 104. I got myself a Maril. And battleing those trainers made my Wurmple evolve into a Silcoon. After fighting through the petalburg woods and not encountering a non-dublicate pokemon yet. I arrived at route 104 (north) and got myself a shiny TM. After route 104 I finally arrived at Rustboro city. I decided I should train my pokemon a bit on route 116, while I did that my Silcoon evolved into a beautyfly, and I got mysel a Tailow. After I finished training I challenged the Rustboro gym and easily took care of it, evolving my Treecko in the progress.

EDIT1:

I helped out Devon and got myself a Whismur in the Rusturf cave. I got a PokeNav. (And another great ball! ^_^) I defeated May. And I went back and captured A Shroomish in petalburg woods. I also remembered that I didn't get a pokemon from 103. (mainly because I didn't visited it yet)I restocked on potions and pokeballs in Petalburg City I went back and took the boat to Dewford Town. I talked with the Fisherman to get an old rod. After that I healed my pokemon at the Pokemon Center and I saved.

EDIT2:

I decided to fish a bit. I got myself a Magikarp in Dewford and a Tentacool in Route 106. (bit of land east of dewford). I went inside the Granite Cave and got myself a Makuhita. (Ironicly I accidently reseted but for some reason I saved before the cave so lucky me! and I got makuhita twice as my first pokemon :)). I traveled across the cave with little difficulties and I gave Steven the letter. I went back to Dewford town I healed my pokemon and went inside the gym.

I defeated all the trainers there but then I got to the gym leader I decided to just go for it. So I did. I let my Beautyfly sweep him. Then I got to his last pokemon I needed one more hit but he defeated my Beautyfly. I switced in my Grovyle and with a quick attack I defeated Brawly but at what cost. So I had to decide what pokemon(s) to fill up the spot. I decided to go with two new ones which I'll train. I chose for Makuhita and Taillow. But they had to catch up so I decided to train both of them at the Granite Cave to match Grovyle a bit more.

EDIT 3: wow still no new posts? Anyway I went to Slateport defeated all the people at the beach. Defeated team Aqua at the museum and went to route 110, where I got myself an Elektrike. I went to challenge May who wasn't really that hard. On my way to Mauvile city my Taillow evolved into a Swellow.
I trained arround the city and got an Oddish. While training my Makuhita evolved into a Hariyama. After being done with training I challenged the gym my Grovyle took care of his first 2 pokemons. My Hariyama defeated his Magneton and Manectric.

So while we wait for the release of B2W2 state side in exactly 5 days, 8 hours, 49 minutes of me posting this, I've decided to Nuzlocke my Sapphire cart, despite a non-functioning clock. Here we go!

Rules
- If a Pokemon faints, it's considered dead and permaboxed.
- Only one capture per route, city, or town.
-- If I meet a duplicate on a new route, I am given one more chance for a new pokemon. Two duplicates in a row on the same route, no new capture.
- Trading is allowed for evolving.
- Nicknames must be given.
- Battle mode shall be locked on 'Set'

And so it begins! The last Nuzlocke I've done on an RSE cart of recent memory was an Emerald file that ended well with only a few deaths.

Name: Joey
Trainer OT: 03616
Badges: 3
Time: 10:27

Started the file, picked the boy, and named myself Joey. Talked to Mom, met May seemingly for the first time (again), and met Prof. Birch on Route 101. Picked Mudkip♂, named George, and defeated the Poochyena handily. Defeated May on Route 103, and got the Poke Balls. Route 101 gave me Zigzagoon♂ named Scavenger (what a surprise), caught it. Trained George some, got some free Super Potions from Scavenger, and caught a Poochyena♀ on Route 103 named Nibbles. Route 102 was a Lotad♀ named Jalapeno, but I was really hoping for a Ralts. Taught Wally how to catch a Pokemon, and headed for Petalburg Woods. Route 104, Zigzagoon appeared twice in a row, so I added another Zigzagoon♀, named Nuisance, to my reserve box. Petalburg Woods was more kind to me, but not by much. Caught a Wurmple♂ there, named Wormy. Caught a Slakoth to trade for the Makuhita♂, named Makit, in Rustboro City, and caught a Taillow♀, named Royal, on Route 116. Rusturf Tunnel surprisingly gave me a Whismur♀, named Boombox, and with all my available captures made, I grinded some of them up, and swept the Gym with George, who evolved after Roxanne. After that, I helped out Mr. Briney, and forced him to give me a ride to Dewford Town. There, I headed to Granite Cave, catching a Zubat♂ named Trollbat (simply because I wanted an Aron), and gave the letter to Steven. Healed up, hit the Gym, and beat Brawly easily with a combination of Robin and Wormy. After that, I went to Slateport City, beating the trainers on the beach, and Team Aqua in the museum. Caught an Electrike♀, named Tempest, on Route 110, and grinded that up. Trained my team, beating the trainers on the way to Mauville City. Caught a Roselia♂, named Lettuce on Route 117, Timid and Natural Cure to boot! Beat the trainers, and George swept the Gym, no sweat. Caught a Geodude♂, named Cannon, on Route 111 using Rock Smash. Caught a Numel♀, named Lumpy on Route 112, and then a Grimer♂, named Lavender, in Fiery Path. Boxed Nibbles the Mightyena♀ and Wormy the Dustox♂ in lieu of Lettuce the Roselia♂, and Bumpy the Numel♀. Headed north towards Fallabor Town, catching a Sandshrew♂, named Digger, on Route 113. I caught a Swablu♀, named Cashmere, on Route 114, and a Lunatone named Crescent in Meteor Falls, where I met Team Aqua again. Dispatched Team Aqua at Mt. Chimney, caught a Machop♀, named Brawler, on Jagged Pass. But lo and behold, Death has finally caught up with me. While grinding Lettuce, I accidently switched in Bumpy against a rival Numel that smacked me with a Magnitude 9. RIP Bumpy, we barely knew ye. Welcome back Nibbles, your Intimidate ability should come in handy against Norman.

So, before this turns into a journal, I guess I'll do the introduction with my character name. I'm a boy (in real life and in the game) and my character's name is Hydro. I'll be using the usual Nuzlocke rules. Also, some other rules that I'm not sure if they're considered "the usual Nuzlocke rules" or not.
- All Pokemon have to be nicknamed.
- First Pokemon in each Route/Area, no exceptions, other than Shinies

Day 1 in Hoenn
After a short journey to our house from the boat in the back of the moving truck, we were at our new home, which is in Littleroot Town. My mother and I walked inside where some Machoke were placing some of our heavier things. I went upstairs into my room to set my clock and to check it out. I then went over to my desk. I read the short book about adventuring. I then took a Potion out of my PC. I felt like it would come in handy since I would be getting my first Pokemon today. I then went downstairs, just something about Petalburg Gym, the Gym that my Dad is the leader of, finished. My Mom suggested that I go over to Professor Birch's house to meet him.

After a short walk there, a woman greeted me (who I assume is Professor Birch's wife). She suggested that I go upstairs where their daughter who is about my age was. We talked for a little while, but she rushed out to help her Dad catch some wild Pokemon. I decided to follow her. At the exit to the town there was someone who said they he heard some noise a little ways away. He said that someone should go check it out, so I did. It was Professor Birch and he was being chased by a Poochyena! He told me to help him by using one of the PokeBalls in his bag. I choose the PokeBall with Mudkip in it and I let Mudkip out. Mudkip managed to knock out the Mudkip in two Tackles! After "saving" him, Professor Birch invited me to come with him in his lab, where we could talk more. So we went back there. As thanks for saving him, he left me keep the Mudkip! Professor Birch then suggested that I go and talk to May, his daughter, who was on Route 103. I went to go talk to her. After a little while of walking, and only encountering two wild Pokemon, which I ran away from, I made it to May. I talked to her, and she noticed the Pokemon that her Dad had given me. She then challenged me to a battle. She sent out her Treecko, while I sent out my Mudkip. After an intense little battle, Mudkip knocked out May's Treecko! Mudkip then looked stronger. (Lv. 6 and learned Mud-Slap) I had won my first battle against another trainer!

After talking, she headed back to the lab. I followed her. On our way back, Mudkip slapped some mud. He had used Mud-Slap! In Oldale Town, May told me to hurry and then she ran off towards Littleroot Town. In the lab, Professor Birch talked about me beating May and other things. He then gave me a PokeDex, which he talked about. He then talked about how May filled out her PokeDex. May then gave me five PokeBalls shortly after her Dad had given me the PokeDex. She then talked about how she wants to catch cute Pokemon with her PokeBalls. I headed north towards Route 101 but my Mom stopped me. She talked about a couple of things, and then she gave me some running shoes, which I put on right away. After a little bit more talk and me thanking her, she went back inside.

I headed north onto Route 102. I made it into Oldale Town after only running away from one wild Pokemon on Route 103. I went into the Pokemon Center where the Nurse Joy there healed my Pokemon for free! I thanked her and left. I then headed west onto Route 101. The first Pokemon that I found was a Lv. 3 male Wurmple. After Joseph used Tackle on the Wurmple twice, I threw a PokeBall at him. I caught him! I decided to name him Bug. I went back to the Pokemon Center to heal my two Pokmon. We then went back to Route 102 to train. Bug managed to knock out a Zigzagoon all by himself. I switched into Joseph as soon as the battle started with the second Zigzagoon, though, because Bug was kind-of low on health. Joseph beat the Zigzagoon after a couple of Tackles. Bug then looked stronger. (Lv. 4) We encountered a Poochyena next. I decided to switch to Joseph since I didn't want to risk Bug getting knocked out. After a couple of turns of Tackling each other, Mudkip knocked out Poochyena! Mudkip then looked stronger. (Lv. 7) We then went back to heal again. After Nurse Joy healed my Pokemon again, we went right back to training. We encountered a Poochyena, which weakened Bug to the point that I decided to switch Joseph in for him. Joseph finished him off with two more Tackles. We then went back to heal again. Once back on Route 102, we decided that we would challenge a trainer. We challenged Youngster Calvin. He sent out his Lv. 5 Zigzagoon while I sent out Bug, who was at Lv. 4. Shortly into the battle I decided to switch Joseph in for Bug. Joseph's third Mud-Slap knocked out the Zigzagoon. We had won! We decided to battle the next trainer without healing in-between. We battled Bug Catcher Rick. He sent out one of his two Lv. 4 Wurmple while I sent out mine. After his Wurmple just used String Shot on Bug, Bug managed to knock him out with Tackle. Wurmple then looked stronger. (Lv. 5 and learned Poison Sting) He then sent out his other Lv. 4 Wurmple. After three turns of his Wurmple using Tackle on Bug and Bug using Poison Sting on his Wurmple, I decided to switch Bug out for Joseph. Joseph knocked out his Wurmple with one Mud-Slap and then one Tackle. We had won! I then decided to go back to Oldale Town and heal my Pokemon. After Nurse Joy healed them I decided that we would stay here for the night. We got a room. We got ready for bed, well, mainly me. Now I'm writing this with Joseph and Bug watching me. Now to say good night to them and go to sleep.

Overview:
Route 101: Counted the Poochyena from before
Oldale Town: None
Route 103: Lv. 3 Female Wingull - No PokeBalls
- Fought May and won
Route 102: Lv. 3 Male Wurmple - Caught and named Bug

Sorry about the pretty big paragraph at the end. Also, I'm still working on the format. So hopefully it'll look better next time. Also, I think I'll switch from the more in-depth team look once next time too. Hopefully next time is tomorrow. I'm not sure yet, though. I'll see. Thanks for reading this!

Okay, starting an Emerald Nuzlocke, with the rules as follows:

A box shall be set aside as the Graveyard. If the Graveyard box fills and I lose one more pokemon, I have lost the challenge, due to my own negligence of my partners.
No purchasing of Repels or Healing Items. In addition, no usage of Repels (found healing items are fair).
First Pokemon rule includes pre-Rival. Duplicates of pokemon I've captured are excepted from the first pokemon rule, and are in fact forbidden from being captured.
Each floor of a cave/building with wild pokemon is a separate area. Interactable pokemon are considered part of the area, so if I encounter a wild pokemon on the way to the interactable I want, I'm SOL.
I am allowed 1 singular HM Slave exempted from the rules of the challenge. If I use this, while it's in my team, it cannot be put in battle for any purpose. If it gets Roared/Whirlwinded in, I must retreat it immediately.
All pokemon are nicknamed when captured/obtained.
In-game trades are allowed, but count as the pokemon for that area (so no fishing/surfing later)
Gift pokemon also count as the pokemon for the area.
Challenge is completed when Wallace is defeated, and at least one pokemon, who is still alive, has won a Master-level contest. Challenge is failed if the above loss condition is met (or if my last living pokemon is killed, of course).

Anyway, I started, playing the female character (because I differentiate my challenge games by using the female trainer instead of male), named Dawn.
When Professor Birch needed help, I grabbed the ball containing Torchic, and fought it off. He was so grateful he let me keep the Torchic, who I named Flammy.

And with that, I was off to go meet Brendan. Upon arrival, I found he already had a Mudkip, and challenged me to a battle. It was a close one, due to the other battle along the way, but I just barely got the win.

Pokemon for each route:
Littleroot Town: ;255; Gifted.
Route 101: ;263; Defeated.
Route 103: ;261; Defeated.

Team:
;255; Flammy, M, Lv6, Naughty

In addition, no usage of Repels

Uhh, why not? Not using Repels doesn't really make the game harder at all. It just makes everything more time-consuming.

It's been so long since I last played my Nuzlocke that I decided to just start over on LeafGreen. Modified rules: I can catch shinies and legendaries, but can't use them if they weren't the first encounter. There's one route split at the moment--I think it's Route 2 (before and after Viridian Forest). I don't think there'll be any others. Gift Pokemon aren't included in the total caught, and can be used. In addition, areas through which I have to go before actually being able to catch Pokemon are valid areas for catching Pokemon once I get Pokeballs.

Progress so far: I went through the standard beginning, picked a random number and ended up with Charmander as starter. Battled rival. Caught a level 3 Pidgey on Route 1, who died from a critical hit attack from a wild Ratatta :(. Caught a level 4 Mankey on Route 22.

Current Team:
;056; Donny, level 4, male, jolly
;004; Char, level 8, male, rash

Death Toll: 1

RIP:
;016; Beck, female, lonely, lvl 3-4

I lost Donny and gained a Weedle (on Route 2 prior to Viridian Forest). I feel these early losses don't bode too well for the run. :(

I caught a Weedle (Drill) on Route 2b. Derri evolved twice while I was grinding for Brock. When Char learned Metal Claw, I was optimistic--however, that move only made a marginal difference when it came to the actual battle. Char beat Geodude easily, but took a bad hit against Onix. Derri subbed in while Char restored HP, and I'm sad to say that she really took the hit for the team. :( She will be missed. As it was, I barely won with Charmander, who evolved into Charmeleon immediately after the battle. :)

After the battle, I managed to pull Drill up to level 12 before I took him out to Route 3. He was promptly slaughtered by a Rattata. :( However, I did manage to catch a Spearow (Cary). I went ahead and bought the Magikarp (Ingot) out of sheer desperation. While training Cary, I managed to run into four Pikachu in Viridian Forest. I've come to the realization that this run is trying to mock me. My most recent catch has been a Zubat (Nocte) in Mount Moon.

Current Team:
;129; Ingot, level 6, female, gentle

Well, I decided to not make my playthrough a Nuzlocke anymore. I really like the Pokémon I have and don't feel like training up others if any of my current team members lose. Will be posting it all in the RSE Recent Happenings Thread. Not sure if I'll do a Nuzlocke in Generation III, or any other Pokémon game, in the future.

It's really "no repels until I've caught something on that route". So no using a bunch of repels to make sure my first encountered in an area is the interactable pokemon there.

Just lost another Gyarados(Hydra) this time to a Poison/Leech Seed combination. and I just got her too. -_______- R.I.P Hydra Lv. 17-26

3rd December 2012, 2:02 AM
Well, I decided a while back that I would begin concurrent Nuzlocke runs on Platinum and HeartGold when I finished the semester. That would put me down for a Nuzlocke in each region up through Gen IV except Kanto. Seeing as I finished one of my major papers for the semester tonight, I decided I might as well add a third Nuzlocke to the mix and begin a LeafGreen Nuzlocke tonight.

The rules for all three runs will be the usual Nuzlocke rules - first pokemon per area only (excepting any shiny pokemon, though if I encounter a shiny it will sit in the box until the aftergame), if it faints it is dead and will be banished to the dead box.

A rundown so far:

I acquired my starter, Shellshock the Squirtle from Professor Oak and promptly curbstomped my rival's Bulbasaur like a boss.

After acquiring Pokeballs in Viridian City, I returned to Route 1 and caught myself a Pidgey, upon whom I bestowed the name Fluffyhead.

On Route 2 I happened upon a Mankey, caught it, and named it Punchy.

I am currently working on bringing Fluffyhead and Punchy to level with Shellshock before I fight my rival again on Route 2 and head north to the Viridian Forest.

Update:

Got everyone to level 7, so now I am off to fight my Rival.

A number of missed Bubbles due to a single Sand-Attack meant Shellshock could not take care of my Rival's Pidgey quickly, and I had to use my potions to keep him going. Eventually, a critical tackle brought him too low, and I switched to Fluffy-head, who was able to KO the Pidgey, but was knocked out with a critical Tackle from the Rival's Bulbasaur after I landed a Sand-Attack on his first turn on the field put Fluffyhead down for good. Punchy was able to handle the situation, though, avenging Fluffyhead.

Rest in peace, Fluffyhead. You did well.

To the Viridian Forest! First pokemon there was a Weedle, level 3, Modest. Caught him, named him Eedle, and now I shall begin training him.

Update:

So I got some training done evolved Eedle into a Kakuna, then I went to fight Brock, which was easy for Shellshock to handle. I then made my way to Mt. Moon, catching a Spearow on Route 3. I added her to my team and proceeded to train some, evolving Eedle again, before stepping into Mt. Moon and catching a Zubat I named Batso. I did some training, went through Mt. Moon and chose a Helix fossil for myself, though I am not sure yet whether I will revive it. I will see later, I suppose.

Found another Pidgey on Route 4, so I killed it, and trained some more to bring everyone to a level that could handle my Rival in Cerulean. Shellshock evolved and I went to battle my Rival. Easy victory, and the Nugget Bridge proved no problem either. Routes 24 and 25 both gave me Abra as my first pokemon, so I hucked a ball at each and hoped, but only got one shake of the ball before they broke free. So no Abra for me. I fought the trainers on Route 25 and helped Bill sort himself out, so now I am going to do final grinding before Misty's gym. I'd like to get Eedle to level 20, just so there's a third pokemon on my team that can land supereffective damage on Misty's Starmie.

My team thus far:

Shellshock: ;008; Male, level 19, Modest
Punchy: ;056; Female, level 18, Jolly
Eedle: ;015; Male, level 19, Modest
Beaker: ;021; Female, level 17, Lonely
Batso: ;041; Male, level 17, Sassy

Dead:

Fluffyhead: ;016; Female, level 7, Mild

Last night before bed I elected to do some more work and get myself to Vermillion City, which meant beating Misty. That went by no problem, since Shellshock and my newly evolved Beaker could curbstomp everything. After beating Misty, I went down to Route 5 to catch a pokemon and found a level 10 Meowth, which I caught and called Pawl. He had a nugget on him and Pickup, so he's my definite go-to 6th slot while training in the tall grass so I can get extra items.

I then went to Vermillion City and caught a new Pidgey on Route 6, just in case I needed a backup Flyer. I then went to Diglett's Cave to catch a Diglett for Lt. Surge, and I found one. I had Batso out to avoid Ground type moves, which was handy. I turned around to leave the cave when out of nowhere a level 29 Dugtrio comes out all like "You just kidnapped my child!" It used mud-slap the first round, so I tried to escape but it had Arena Trap. It then used dig, so I went for a supersonic and hoped to confuse it to death while getting small bits of Bite damage in.

After a number of turns, it was down to almost half health and it snapped out of confusion and used Fury Swipes. Three hits and Batso was at 9 HP. I used a Super Potion and confused it again, and it used ground moves a few more rounds, and then it went for Fury Swipes again. It landed four hits and I lost Batso to a pokemon eleven levels higher than him. I still couldn't run, so I sent in Shellshock to finish it. The Dugtrio hurt itself and then Water Gun finished the fight.

Update:

A wild pidgey got a critical hit with quick attack and killed Moley before I could even get her up one level. Here's hoping for a Sandshrew on Route 11.

My team thus far:

Shellshock: ;008; Male, level 22, Modest

I did wind up catching a Sandshrew, so I leveled it and evolved it and took on Surge with it. Then I went on my merry way to get to Celadon City. Caught a Geodude in Rock Tunnel, which is good, because I needed something to handle Koffing Selfdestructs in the Rocket Hideout. Wound up catching another Sandshrew on my way to Celadon. Erika went down easy to my Fearow and Beedrill, Surprised Beedrill's still going strong - I've never really used a Bug-type for any significant length of time. I'm currently going back to Lavender Town for a Ghost Type, since Koga's going to be ridiculously easy with one of those on my team.

I'm planning to get a ghost type, get the Pokeflute, and hit the Safari Zone next. I need the Super Rod, but I plan to avoid running into anything until I can cast my rod in the Safari Zone and gamble on the possibility of catching a Dratini or Dragonair there. If I can, then I'll get the Eevee in Celadon City. If not, I got enough coins gambling there to buy one. So that's my plan, basically.

A whole bunch of death this time around. Beat Flannery but lost my Solrock(Primal) to a crit Overheat, in the sun no less, from Flannery's Torkal.

Got a Trapinch(Eye-Eye) on Route 111 and lost that not to long after. I was trapped by a wild Trapinch's Arena Trap and since Eye-Eye was in my lead spot I had no choice but to fight it, on top of that I was outta healing items but 1 Oran berry.

Got a Sandshrew(Knuckles) and the Root fossil and revived it to get Lileep(Venus) as my Rustboro encounter and not to long after Venus died as well. Lost Venus in the Trick House to a crit Magnitude from a Geodude.

Lost Numel(Himalaya) to a wild Self destructing Baltoy.

Finally, I Beat Norman but lost my Machoke(Amazon) which evolved from Machop to his Slaking.

So I ended up putting Lombre(Peso) and Loudred(Echo) back on my team, for now anyway.

Started a new Nuzlocke on Emerald today (I started one recently but got beaten by Brawley, so I started again. This time I started with a female Treecko (using the Trainer ID rule). I counted a Poochyena on Route 101 as my first encounter (but didn't have Pokeballs), and then managed to catch a Poochyena on Route 103. I found another one on Route 102 (not playing with duplicate clause), but it soon fainted in my first trainer battle, since I wasn't really careful with it because I already had a Poochyena. On Route 104, I accidentally knocked out my first encounter, a Tailow, in one shot with a critical hit Pound from Treecko. In the woods I found a Wurmple and caught it, but that got knocked out by a critical hit from the Zigazoon belonging to the rich boy on the next route. I reached Rustboro with no other major catastrophes, and my current team is now:

Poochyena lvl 12
Treecko lvl 12

I have started a Nuzlocke in Pokémon Emerald with normal rules, but different floors in caves count as different places, and if a Pokémon I actually have appears, it doesn't count as the 1st Pokémon of the Route. It's my first Nuzlocke, and I will alternate between this and my Crystal Ground Monotype.

I began with Treecko, who I called Geek. In the last patch of grass of Route 201, a Zigzagoon appeared... But in Route 203, I managed to get to May without a single Pokémon encounter. I swept Torchic with my Lv. 7 Treecko easily. May gave me Pokéballs in the lab, and I caught a lv 2 Poochyena in Route 203, who I forgot to give a nickname... While I was grinding to level it up it got to lv 4, but a Zigzagoon who was only doing 3 points of damage every turn killed Poochyena with a Critical Hit that quitted my Poochyena 8 HP! Poochyena died...

I went to Route 202, where I caught a Lotad (I forgot again about the nickname!) I grinded until both Treecko and Lotad got to level 9, and I arrived at Petalburg City. There I helped Wally catch Ralts and met that mysterious man. After that I went to Route 204, where I caught a Marill (I forgot the nickname thing again...) with Thick Fat. I grinded a bit, to allow Marill to reach his teammates, and I entered Petalburg Woods, where a Lv 5 Cascoon appeared. I caught him and called him Capulli. I put him in the PC. I destroyed the Grunt's Poochyena easily, received a Super Ball, and kept going till I got to Rostburo City, where I got Cut and a Quick Claw I gave to Marill.

There I caught a Whismur, who I called Noisy, and grinded my whole team up to Lv 14. Lotad evolved into Lombre. After defeating all the Trainers, I went to Rostburo Gym. I won easily, with Lombre's Bullet Seed, Marill's Water Gun, and Geek's Absorb. After that I defeated again the Grunt, and rescued Peeko the Wingull. I received the PokéGear, and I battled May, who I defeated realy easily, with Noisy and Marill destroying Lotad and Torchic, respectively.
Geek evolved while going to Mr. Arenque's house (in Spanish he is Sr. Arenque, I don't know his name in English, the owner of the Wingull, Peeko in Spanish). I went to Dewford Town, where I received the Old Rod, with which I caught a Magikarp, who I called Uselesful, and a Tentacool in Route 206 which I defeated with a critical hit... :(.

I entered Granite Cave, where I caught Sumo, the Makuhita, and I grinded to get my whole team to level 18. After that I went to the Gym... And things went badly, as Brawly scored two Critical hits on Azumarill, killing him, and after a Bulk Up, he defeated Lombre and... Geek the Grovyle too! I managed to win the battle with Sumo and Noisy, and after that I went on exploring Granite Cave, with Noisy, Sumo, and the dead Lombre, only for using Flash. In the cave's two floors I hadn't explored yet. I caught an Aron (Aurum) and a Zubat (I forgot about the nickname...). I reached the last room, anve the letter to Steven. Now I am training Aurum and Zubat to let them reach the other two. Team:

Aron (Aurum) Lv 11-14.
Zubat Lv 9-15
Makuhita (Sumo) Lv 9-19
Whismur (Noisy) Lv 6-18

I'll edit in a fuller update later, but I have finished finals and am much farther in my LeafGreen Nuzlocke. Nearly ready to fight Koga with a team consisting of Clawdia the Haunter, Shellshock the Wartortle (soon to evolve), Eedle the Beedrill, Punchy the Primeape, Razordoll the Sandslash, and Sleeper the Snorlax. Wound up catching both Snorlaxes. Got a Dratini at the game corner, and it got killed by a Rattatta using Hyper Fang before it could even grow a level. So that was lame.

Well, I had to say goodbye to Punchy today. She went down to a Cross-Chop from a Primeape in the Fighting Dojo. I went to my PC to grab Beaker as a replacement, then decided to throw Beaker into the Daycare and head to the Power Plant to see what came my way. I got a Magnemite which I named Howdouwork. I'll be going back to the power plant once I have my team in the mid 40s to grab Thunder. I'll rejigger the moveset for Howdouwork then to include Rain Dance and Thunder, because I really want it to last for the elite four. I beat Koga with Clawdia, which was easy because Kanto ghost types don't care what Koga does. Hypnosis + Dream Eater killed his Koffings and Muk, but his Weezing had the benefit of some big HP and Koga healing it, so I actually used Curse to good effect. One of the few times I would ever use Curse with a ghost type in a Nuzlocke.

Currently training Howdouwork to get him on par with the team so we can storm the Silph Co. building (and get me a Lapras). Then I'll be going for Sabrina, followed by Blaine.

Update - So got Howdouwork to evolve and am doing the beginning stages of Silph. Co. Also went to the Game Corner to pick up some TMs for my guys, so Sleeper now knows Shadow Ball and I have Ice Beam waiting to go on Shellshock. Still kind of marvelling at Eedle being around so long, and I'm loving Clawdia for all the exploding crap that I keep encountering.

Started a new game again, after Brawly beat me, again. I don't want to give up. So I'm on Route 102 now and I have a Treecko (female again) as well as, unsurprisingly, a Zigzagoon and a Poochyena. It would really have been great to get a Ralts for Brawly, but hopefully I'll run into a Tailow later... and not have it knocked out before I get to the second gym leader. No deaths so far, and I'm beginning to train up my Zigzagoon.

My current team:
Zigzagoon level 4
Treecko level 8
Poochyena level 8

A huge update I have here, as I have 6 Medals now, and I am in front of the door of Tate&Liza's Gym. Aurum the Aron has already evolved twice, and Noisy evolved into Exploud!

After reaching Fallarbor Town...

- Went through the Jagged Pass, catching a Machop (Cachas). Got to Lavaridge Town.
- There I got Wynaut's egg, which I hatched at Mt. Chimney. I named it Whynot? At Mt. Chimney, I beat some trainer, and bought more Lava Cookies.
- Went back to Lavaridge, and entered the Gym. Suffered a bit against Torkoal in the Sun because of Overheat, but Peeko managed to endure it. I got the 4th medal.
- Went to the desert wuth my new glasses. Caught a Sandshrew there (Sandmouse).
- Went to the Mirage Tower, where I caught a Trapinch (Antsand).
- Went to Petalburg City, where I battled Norman. Sumo was close to death, but between him and Aurom we managed to win. got HM 03 (Surf)

- Went to the Trick House. In Route 110, I was close to losing Peeko, due to the Pokéfan's Plusle, whose Spark hurt Peeko a lot.
- After that I went to Route 118, where I killed a Manectric accidentally. Explored Route 123 to get a few Berries.

- Explored the other part of Route 123, to beat some trainers.
- Went to Mt. Pyre, where I caught a Duskull (Night) and beat Team Aqua easily. Got the Magma Symbol.

Another Update!!

Ok, I left the last time at the door of Tate&Liza's Gym. Here's what has happened:

- I entered the Gym, and beat all the trainers there. then I reched the leaders, and in a very hard fight, I managed to beat them without losing Pokémon. Peeko's Surf was really important, as I couldn't afford to risk Aggron due to possible Earthquakes from Claydol and Solrock.
- With the 7th medal, I went to challenge Team Magma at Mossdeep. Even behind Metang's Reflect, Camerupt did a Critical Hit (nulifying the barrier) and left Noisy with Red HP. Fortunately, I healed it, and the battle wasn't complicated after that.
- Got HM 08 Dive. Taught it to Sharky.
- Went to the Trick House.
- Explored the underwater, getting shards and Heart Scales. Caught a Clamperl (PearlFey)
- Went to the Abandoned Ship now with Dive.
- Went to face Team Aqua at the Seafloor Cavern. This was easy.
- After beating Team Aqua, I went to Soothopolis, where I found Kyogre and Groudon fighting.
- Met Wallace at the Cave of Origin.
- Went to the Sky Pillar, where I caught a Sableye (Eyes), and woke Rayquaza.
- Went back to Soothopolis with the situation fixed (Got HM 07 Waterfall)
- Entered the Gym. Beat all the trainers there.
- Then I fought Juan. The Kingdra was amazingly hard to beat, due to continous Double Teams, but Noisy managed to hit it with Screech and then with Hyper Beam (the 5th Hyper Beam), OHKOing it. The other Pokémon were pieces of cake for Sumo and Cruelbat.
- Went to the Trick House.
- Explored the Meteor Falls using Waterfall.
- Went to Ever Grande City.
- Entered the Victory Road. I had to left Sumo at the PC, because I needed two HM Slaves (Tropius and Sharky, so I explored the Victory Road without her.
- Beat Wally easily.
- Reached the end of the cave, especially suffering against the trainers that used Skill Swap to remove Slaking's Truant.
- Now I am training a lot, because in normal situations I wouldn't mind entering the Pokémon League for training and losing, but here I can't lose. I'll have to train them a few more levels. I'll also use a Bellossom for the Pokémon League, the Oddish I have at the daycare.
- Not a single loss since Brawly!!

Lg Nuzlocke, Failed grrrr I hate gary

31st December 2012, 10:55 PM
Hey guys! Me, Drummerdude and Snivy Trainer will all be starting a Nuzlocke game together! I am playing Ruby, and they are playing the other 2 3rd generation games.

My rules:
-1st Pokemon caught in a route (only counts after I receive Pokeballs);
-Pokemon faints, dies (obviously)
-No repeats (unless it faints)
-Nicknames, so the bond is stronger

As usual, I started in a truck. I set the time, and got a Potion. Then mom told me to go see Dad in Petalburg Town. But first, I should go see Prof. Birch. Since I'm a tough son of a mother though, I broke into my neighbor's house to check out the hot daughter. I left and heard screams, and Prof. Birch was being attacked by a Poochyena. I took Torchic, because Ruby is red and that's what we themed our starters on. Then the Poochyena went down! :) We left to the lab, and I nicknamed my Torchic RoastChick, cuz that's how I roll. I then left to go find May. I easily defeated her, went back, got a Pokedex and my journey was starting! Route 1 finally. The first Pokemon I saw was a male Wurmple. Aaaand it's dead -.- Went to the second route to try and catch one, Zigzagoon. I managed to catch it, and called it Numero Uno. Then it was time to train her. First battle, I was battling a Poochyena. IT GOT 2 FREAKING CRITICAL HITS! 2 CRITICAL HITS?!?!??!? SERIOUSLY?!?!??! RIP Numero Uno. RoastChick got revenge though. Well I created a Death Box and deposited Numero Uno in it :( Then in the next route, I saw another Wurmple. Ok, let's try again... omfg RoastChick got a freaking critical hit. Like wtf. Did everything in Petalburg Town, then, time for Route 104... Another Wurmple? lol I'm gonna kill it I bet. I didn't... Awesome! I caught it! FINALLY :O I nicknamed him Pumpkin. I stopped and saved.

RIP Numero Uno. Even though you were with us for only some time, you were our first Pokemon, and for that we are grateful. You died because of a stupid mistake I did, and for that I'm sorry. RIP

Like TheSirPeras said, I'll be doing a Nuzlocke on Sapphire. I'll also use the same rules TheSirPeras is using.

I did the beginning up to picking a starter and chose Mudkip (Skipper) to stick to the theme we have. I then headed to Route 103 on Birch's request and battled May and got lucky with a critical hit against her Treecko. Once I returned to Birch's lab and got Pokeball's I headed to Route 101 and encountered a Wurmple. I almost knocked it out but managed to catch it and named it Wonderworm. I trained it a little before going back to Route 103 and finding a Poochyena there (Cerberus). I trained all 3 Pokemon on Routes 101 and Route 103 before taking a break on Route 102.

After I caught Pumpkin, I decided to train it. I grinded it to level 10, after an evolution. It finally evolved into a Dustox! I wanted a Beautifly, but oh well. Then I beat every trainer in Route 104. I headed into the Petalburg Woods and caught myself a Shroomish, which I called Dojo. I trained him to level 11, and now my team was levels 13, 11 and 10 (Torchic, Dustox and Shroomish respectively). Then, in the woods, this guy came to me, but this Team Magma Grunt came and we battled him. Dojo beat him easily. Dojo is going on a spree here, beating every trainer in the woods! :) I left, and received Bullet See, which I taight taught to Dojo. I didn't catch anything after that because it's still route 104. We then arrived in Rustboro City! :)

So after seeing this thread, I had an extreme urge to do a Nuzlocke Challenge on my Emerald. Bear with me this is my first time doing a Nuzlocke challenge so I might make a mistake, but I read the rules thoroughly so I should be fine. So here is where I stand at the moment:
- Started the game and chose Torchic (Praise) for my starter.
- Saw the Zigzagoon on 101 so I can't catch anything on that Route.
- Saw a Wingull on Route 102 before I fought May so that's 2 in a row I couldn't catch (What a great start).
- Fought May, got the Pokeballs (finally).
- Caught a Poochyena (Kooper) on Route 103.
- Caught a Wurmple (Ophelia) on Route 104, now a Dustox.
- Caught a Slakoth (forgot to nickname, currently resides in my PC) in Petalburg Woods
- After leaving the Woods, I caught a Marill, unaware it was the same Route as before, so I released it (wasted my Greatball. WOO!)
- Too afraid to try the gym, so I decided to train in the Route after it.
- First encounter, an Abra. Failed to catch.
- Trained like crazy. I've never spent 3 hours before the first gym.
- Caught Whismur (Rhythm) in Rusturf Tunnel.
- Used my Combusken to win easily against Roxanne.
- Went to Dewford town, where I was given the Old Rod which I used to fish up a Tentacool (Mizu) and catch it.
- Caught a Zubat (Uryuu) in Granite Cave. Now I'm deciding if different floors of caves should count as a different route...

So, yeah. I'm afraid to fight Brawly in fear that I'll lose some of my Pokemon, since his Makuhita is a total pain. I'll probably have to train Ophelia and hope Confusion can take him down. I think I'm doing decent for my first Nuzlocke challenge so far.

3rd January 2013, 6:50 PM
Ehh, it's up to you whether the floors are different areas or not. If you're really afraid of Brawly, I'd say count them differently; then, you might get a Sableye, and not a single one of his Pokčmon can do any damage to it whatsoever. They only have Normal, Fighting, and Psychic attacks, and Sableye's immune to all three. I think one or two of the gym trainers might have Foresight, which would make it weak to Fighting instead of immune, but I know none of Brawly's Pokčmon have it, and it wouldn't be too hard to just switch to another Pokčmon as soon as Foresight is used.

We did everything we could do in Rustboro City, and then went up to Route 116, where we caught a Whismur. Called it Joel. We then decided to have a grinding session. We got RoastChicken to 16, which means Torchic evolved. Then we got Dojo, Pumpkin and Joel to level 15. That done, we went in the gym with Dojo up front. He OHKO'd every Pokemon until Nosepass, which went down after a good fight. Dojo was now level 17. We left the gym and saw 1 team magma grunt run away after stealing some stuff and went after him. Turns out he also stole a Wingull. We chased him, battled him, beat him with Joel, and got the stuff back. We got a reward after getting the stuff back, a Pokenav! We left Rustboro and headed south to Dewford, and when we arrived there, we saved.

As probably expected, I'm doing a Nizcloke as well. As everyone expects, I'm using Emerald and I started with Treecko, which I called Geek. I trained Geek to level 8, and then beat May. Got Pokeballs and got to level 9. I caught a Zigzagoon, failed to capture a Wurmple on the route above Ordale (don't expect me to know the routes) and then Zigzagoon fainted to a crit from a Poocheyena, which I caught and named Chomp. Got Chomp to level 7, and went and did Petalburg and all that. Caught a Wingull named WingZ, and trained her and Chomp to level 9, as with Geek. Failed to capture a Shroomish in Petalburg Woods, and went through to Rustoboro. Caught a Nincada on route 116 (hey!!) and a Whismur in the Whismur Cave. I'm going to train Whismur, who I called RokkU. I got my team to level 13 (except Geek) and let Geek and WingZ conquer the gym. Roxxane went down easily enough. I saved, and finished for today.

Team (no pictures today, will do at some point):
Geek (Treecko) Level 14
WingZ (Wingull) Level 13
Chomp (Poocheyena) Level 13

In the box (either to be used or otherwise):
RokkU (Whismur) Level 7
Bugzee (Nincada) Level 7

Dead:

Ok, I have a little update here, with minor things that will get to be important (Emerald Nuzlocke Challenge). I have a few questions in the last line of the the list, so please, if someone can help, I'd appreciate it.

- Went to Route 114 and got a Rare Candy using Waterfall.
- Took Arbusto the Oddish from the Daycare at Lv 44 and evolved it into Gloom, and then in the end I decided to go for Vileplume, who has a better Special Attack stat.
- Bought 10 Calciums in Slateport and gave them to Vileplume.
- Left Bola the Spheal at the Daycare.
- Went to Route 115 to fight the Black Belt there until I got to use Thief on its Machamp with Crobat, getting a Black Belt for Sumo.
- I was REALLY lucky at the desert, where the 5th wild Cacnea was holding the Poison Barb, I gave it to Crobat.
- Torpe the Numel and Bola the Spheal had an egg! I hatched it, just for curiosity, and the Numel that was born from it knew Body Slam! I put this Numel in the Invalid box with Castform.
- Caught a Natu (Chica) in the Safari Zone (Don't know why I left that place behind..., I know I couldn't enter at first, but I've had plenty of time to go...)
- I have kept training with Route 117 trainers (if someone knows a faster place, I'd be grateful), as until everything reaches lv 58 (including Vileplume) I won't battle the E4, because I don't want to fail at the end of the challenge. What do you recommend me, train more, or should the E4 be easy for my team? This time I give you the attacks of my team, so that you can help me.

My Route 103 encounter was a Zigzagoon but a critical hit knocked it out. Oh well. I continued along the route and watched as WonderWorm evolved into Silcoon! I trained a little more and then headed to Petalburg and watched Wally capture Ralts. I then went to Route 104 and captured a Zigzagoon (Ughghgh, based off my reaction to encountering it). I skipped the few trainers and went to the Petalburg Woods. I was really hoping for a Shroomish or a Slakoth but ended up with a Taillow (Cheeky, I don't why). Cheeky led against most of the trainers in the Petalburg Woods and on Route 4. Before I knew it I was in Rustboro. I grabbed Cut and then went to Route 116 and found a Nincada (Sweeney). I beat the trainers and trained Skipper, WonderWorm (who evolved into Beautifly), Cerberus, and Cheeky to Lv15 and decided to go ahead and evolve Skipper. Once I had Marshtomp I went to the gym.

Since my four main Pokemon were 15-16 I was condident that I would easily win. I started with WonderWorm against Roxanne's Geodude and used Absorb. Geodude survived with only a sliver of health left before using Rock Tomb. I covered WonderWorm's Health Bar with my thumb because I knew what was about to happen. WonderWorm fainted. Skipper more than compensated for WonderWorm's loss by beating both Geodude and Nosepass with Water Gun. I got my badge, but at a steep price. As I left the gym I saw a man who I helped in the Petalburg Woods being harassed by a Team Aqua member. I took off and captured a Whismur (Earily) in the Rusturf Tunnel after beating the Team Aqua grunt. After getting stuff in Violet City I visited Mr Briney and took off to Dewford Town. I went to the Granite Cave and captured a Makuhita (Punchy) and trained it before taking a break.

Ok, I finally did it!!! I have beaten the E4!!! Sydney was way easy, Peeko destroyed Mightyena, Sumo beat Absol, Crobat won against Shiftry and Cacturne, and Vileplume did well against Crawdaunt.

Pheobe killed Peeko with Banette!!! I didn't remember it had Thunderbolt and... The battle was otherwise easy with Exploud's Shadow Ball.

Glacia was KO'ed with Sumo, all her team OHKOed with Brick Break with the exception of Walrein (2HKOed)

Drake's Salamence killed Aurum! A critical Flamethrower. Also, Crobat suffered against Flygon, due to continuous burning with Flamethrower. Exploud's Hyper Beam helped with Salamence, and Crobat had enough bulk to attack and heal three or four turns later. I wanted to use Peeko's Ice Beam here, but he had died, so I had to chage my plans...

And Wallace wasn't difficult, with Exploud beating Wailord, Crobat stalling Milotic until it ran out of Ice Beam, for Vileplume to beat it. Crobat beat Ludicolo, Vileplume did well with Sleep Powder, Giga Drain and Petal Dance against Whiscash, Milotic and Gyarados. Sumo destroyed Tentacruel with Strength.

So I suppose it's over, because I don't think I'll grind 15 levels for Steven Stone. I have enjoyed a lot this 1st Nuzlocke, it will not be the last one...

Congrats on a successful Nuzlocke Swoobat!!

I continued training Punchy and evolved Cerberus before returning to Granite Cave and going through to deliver the letter to Steven. Then I went through the gym and swept the place, including Brawly, with Cheeky's Wing Attack. Easy. I went to Slateport and skipped the trainers on the beach to go to Route 110 and catch a new Pokemon. I found and captured an Electrike (Puppee) and slapped the newly acquired Exp Share on it before returning to the beach and battling the trainers. I got into the museum Team Aqua was at and beat two grunts before they all fled.

With nothing left to do I went back to Route 110 and battled some trainers before exploring the Trick House . I got through and then battled May. I tried using Electrike but a single Water Gun took out half of its HP so I swapped out Punchy and beat it with Vital Throw. Skipper defeated Numel with Water Gun and Cheeky beat Grovyle with Wing Attack. I trained a little after the battle and evolved Cheeky before taking a break.

Good job, Swoobat!

Well everything just went downhill for me after I make one bad decision.
- Decided not to count different floors of caves as different routes.
- Beat Brawly with ease.
- Went to Slateport, fought everyone there.
- Caught a Electrike (Akeno-chan) lv: 12.
- Trained for a bit. This is where it went all wrong
- Thought to myself, "I don't like training here with all of these electric types. I want a better training place. Lets fight May!"
- Took out her Lombre easily.
- She sent out Marshtomp. I switched my Combusken out to heal him. Apparently ground type moves are super effective on Tentacool. Did not know that... Lost Mizu.
- Attempted to take out Marshtomp using my Combusken. Marshtomp used mud shot on me, it took more than half of my health and it lowered my speed. I was hoping it didn't lower my speed enough for it to be faster than me, or that my quick claw would activate, unfortunately Marshtomp became faster and knocked out Combusken (NO!).
- Used Electrike's Quick Attack to knock out Marshtomp.
- Paralyzed Slugma hoping it would give me a chance to attack it. Nope. It kept using Yawn so I was constantly switching out to avoid falling asleep. It finally gave me an opening when it defeated my Poochyena with one hit. Finally beat May after losing 3 Pokemon in one fight.
- I reached Mauville City where I fought Wally and his Ralts and crit him with my Zubat's Bite.
- Since I lost 3 Pokemon from May, I went to Route 117 to catch another Pokemon. I ran into and caught an Oddish (Yasai) lv: 14.
- back-tracked a tiny bit to fight a fisherman on the previous route, thinking he had nothing but Magikarp. Here was my second mistake.
- Defeated his Tentacool with my Dustox pretty easily. Then he sent out his trump card. Wailmer.
- Wailmer began to use to use Rollout. I quickly switched out to save my Dustox. My Oddish was sent out to hopefully knock it out with a grass-type advantage. Again, nope.
- The Rollout of Wailmer was too strong at that point for Oddish to handle. I was hoping Oddish was faster and could Absorb some HP to survive the hit. It wasn't.
- Sent out Dustox again since I KNEW it was faster. Left Wailmer with a little fraction of an HP before Rollout overpowered me. Lost Dustox there.
- My Electrike saved the day again with Quick Attack. Then, to my dismay, he sent out another Wailmer.
- Electrike didn't have an electric type attack at this time, so I switched to Zubat to use supersonic.
- Luckily, Supersonic did its job and kept Wailmer from keeping Rollout on.
- Finally won that battle and lost 2 Pokemon in the process.


OK so now my team is very small compared to before. Who knew I would have lost 5 Pokemon in one go? That was a painful day. I really need to stick to this place and just train for awhile. I currently have no advantages over Wattson so I'm not sure how I'll win this one, or if I'll fail my first Nuzlocke.

Just recently finished my first Nuzlocke run for Emerald. Went pretty well, but wish I could have done it without any deaths. I decided to take whatever I encountered first regardless of whether I had caught it or not. This resulted in a about 5 Poochyena, but did allow for a second electrode. I did not use nicknames because it takes me forever to make my mind and I did not want to have to do it 20+ times.

E4 went down much easier than expected, but I probably should not have abused the terrible AI.

Once in Dewford, we went directly to the Granite Cave where we killed a Geodude (wouldn't even be helpful anyways) and we delivered the letter to Steven. Once that was done, it was training time! First Shroomish, then Combusken, then Whismur and finally Dustox. All to level 18, and Dustox at level 17. Then, I entered the gym with Dustox up front, beat 2 trainers and went to Brawley.
First up was Dustox agaisnt Machop. I was faster and used a mix of Confusion and Gust. He healed, and the battle went on until I beat Machop, after taking an amount of damage. Then it was Makuhita... I switched to Combusken because I am faster, and awesome Peck does half damage!! He uses Bulk Up and I get a CRITICAL HIT!! YES!!!! :D Brawley defeated, 2nd badge upon me!! :D So happy I didn't lose anyone!! xD After that I healed and went to Slateport City by boat.

I continued through Route 110 until I reached Mauville City. The first thing I did was go west onto Route 117 and I found a Roselia (MossEisley). I considered adding it to the team until I saw that it had a Careful nature. Every Pokemon has a crappy nature! I beat all the trainers on the route and then went east of Mauville and beat the couple of trainers there. Next was the Winstrates and apart from a close call thanks to that Meditite it wasn't bad. I let Cerberus take on Wally so it could finally be useful and then I went to the gym. Skipper and Punchy took on the gym trainers and then I went to Route 117 and evolved Punchy into Hariyama!

Wattson was ridiculously easy. Skipper used 3 Mudshots and knocked out all three of his Pokemon. I taught Rock Smash to Ughghgh and got Strength in the Rusturf Tunnel. I took a break afterwards.

Ima start a nuzlocke on LG but with an extra rule;


If I have six pokemon on my team and I catch another one, I must use an RNG to see which pokemon it MUST replace.

Also once one of my six pokemon in my team die, I must use an RNG to see which pokemon I must get from my box. So basically if a bulbasaur died on my team of six pkmn, then I had a squirtle charmander & a pidgey in my box then I use an RNG to decide which ome I should get to replace bulbasaur.

Well, last update I arrived in Slateport. I got Joel aka Whismur up front, and beat most trainers in the beach with the occasional help of Shroomish. Finally in the city, I met the devon guy and then beat Team Magma, where Whismur evolved into Loudred! :D After, I healed and headed up. The first Pokemon I found there was a Gulpin, which I kicked twice with Combusken. Another Double Kick, and then I caught it :) I called it GOAL, and then trained all my Pokemon to level 20's around that. It's a pain to train GOAL. But Sludge did help, so it wasn't so bad at the end. It was pretty much 2hko's all the time. After I trained all my Pokemon to level 20, I battled May. I beat her pretty quickly, and it was really easy.

I headed north and skipped the few trainers between Mauville and the Fiery Path. On Route 112 I captured a Numel (whose I can't remember for the life of me) and in the Fiery Path I captured a Slugma (Slucious). I decided to add Slucious to the team and once I did I began to train everyone on the trainers I skipped. I continued on and met a nice elderly lady who would heal my Pokemon so that made the battles much less terrifying. On Route 113 I found a Sandshrew (Unwanted) and then continued until I reached Fallarbor Town. I decided to take a little time to raise everyone on my team to Lv25 before taking a break. I am going to be ditching Cerberus soon, it's just too weak.

Rules

1) If your Pokémon faint, it's dead. Permabox. (Not release, because it conflicts with roll 20.)
2) Unless rolled otherwise, you catch the first Pokémon in each area. Shinys are no exceptions. Gifts and special Pokémon may be used.
3) No items may be bought unless rolled. (I completely forgot about this one so it doesn't apply, at least not in the beginning ='D)
4) Every time you enter a new area (the Name change indicates what is a new area), you roll a die with 20 sides (or RNG it, whatever) before you do ANYTHING else. Act according to the list below:

So, I’ve decided to attempt my first Nuzlocke on Firered after reading this entire thread about all of your journeys! I have always wanted to try, but I’ve been too afraid—but no more! I will stick my neck out and see how things go. XD So, without further ado: Let the journey begin!

For my first time, I’m just going to stick to the standard rules:
• If a Pokémon faints, it is permaboxed
• Nickname all Pokémon
• Can only catch the first Pokémon on each route/cave/body of water
• However, I will catch any shinies I come across, regardless of the previous rules. But, I will not use them if I had to break the rules to catch it.


I began my journey in the town of Pallet—population, 6. My mother seemed none too concerned as I marched down the stairs and demanded a Pokémon of my very own. “Do what you want, honey,” she sighed heavily as she sat at the table with a cup of coffee, reading the latest issue of Cosmo. She must not have heard me correctly, or there was something strong in that coffee, but I bolted for the door before she could change her mind. After searching ruthlessly for Professor Oak, whom I knew could give me what I desire; I grew increasingly impatient as the time wore on. My eyes flickered to the one narrow route that lead to Pallet. The grass grew tall between the trees, obscuring any hidden dangers within. I had always been reminded as a child to never wander into the forest without an adult. The tales that were passed around of children being dragged away into the depths of the homes of wild Pokémon were too horrific for any child to challenge them. But I was different. A lover of all Pokémon, I wanted to befriend and strike out on my very own journey for a long time. I would try to sneak away into the wilderness time and again, but my mother must have contained an acute sense for this, as she watched me like a hawk. But unless my ears deceived me, she had just granted me permission to become a Pokémon trainer, something I was not going to give up on easily. But that crotchety, old Professor decides now he doesn’t want to show himself in town. Well, we’d see how long that stops me.

I inched toward the route, hoping that the nosy neighbors wouldn’t call my mother to warn her of my escape. I was close enough I could smell the wilderness! Hear the rustle of the grass as the wind passed between its dancing fingers. I was ready to bolt, but I was afraid I’d scare off the Pokemon I wanted to trust me. I was within jumping distance now, every fiber of my being vibrating with excitement. I reached my arm out, to part the grass before me, to take my very first step beyond Pall—“WAIT!” I jolted, swinging my body around to face the person who foiled my plan. And sure enough, Oak came huffing and puffing toward me, arms outstretched as if he could keep me firmly planted there with the Force. I folded my arms in front of my chest, bracing myself for the onslaught of reprimands I was sure to receive. The old man soon reached me, gasping for breath as he hunched forward, hands on his knees.

“Fang! What—are—you doing?! You know you’re not supposed to go out there alone,” he fixed a stern glare on me as I quailed a bit, I forgot how intimidating this old man can be sometimes. “You were supposed to come straight to my lab and get a partner before trying to leave!” I was about to yell back that I had been looking for him all morning when my breath caught in my throat.

“I was to do what?” I asked, with barely a whisper. My irritation had suddenly flared into exhilaration at the prospect of actually being allowed to get a Pokémon.

“Didn’t your mother tell you to come find me? We talked about it months ago, that when I received all the proper supplies, you would be allowed to train Pokémon,” his anger had died drastically; he only looked at me quizzically. I shrugged my shoulders, wondering why my mother had decided not to tell me that I was actually allowed to be a trainer. At that moment I had a flashback to last night, I thought I heard her crying in the next room, but I dismissed it, as she normally cries when she reads those sappy romance novels. Well, I guess I can’t blame her too much, with Dad gone, she’d be all alone if I left. But I can’t let her keep me tied down forever, this is my chance to escape from this dreary little town and I will take it.

Finally I answered Oak’s questions after my inner monologue, “She didn’t mention it, but she might have just mixed up the days.” I shrugged again.

“Well, then if you’re done trying to run into the wilderness armed with only a toothbrush, you can follow me back to my lab and choose your very first Pokémon,” he then promptly turned on his heel and headed back toward his lab. I jogged forward until I matched his pace. My heart was thumping so hard against my ribcage I was sure the Professor could hear it. I tried to calm my pulse as we reached the lab, but the moment we stepped inside it skyrocketed once again. We approached a device that contained three Pokéballs, time seemed to slow down as he opened the lid to the container, revealing the glistening orbs that possibly contained my first Pokémon. Suddenly the door behind us swung open forcefully and a young boy around my age with incredibly spiky brown hair stormed in looking really pissed.

“Gramps! What the hell? I’m supposed to be getting first pick! And who the hell is she?” the young man was whining like a little crybaby and when he shoved his finger at me, I couldn’t help but take a step back at his aggression. Then the blood broiled within me and I straightened my back.

“For your information, boy, my name is Fang, and I’m going to be the Pokémon League Champion,” I said icily through clenched teeth. He froze, all aggression gone when he saw me stand up to him.

Oak must have decided that things had gone far enough because he stepped into each of our lines of sight and cleared his throat loudly, “That is enough you too! Both of you are here for your Pokémon to start on your journey as respectable trainers! There will be no petty squabbling in this lab! Now,” he lowered voice to a normal level, “Fang, please, go choose your starter. Green, stop your groaning, you’ll get a chance.” I stuck my tongue out at Green from behind the Professor’s back and walked up to the Pokéball terminal. I knew these starters well, Bulbasaur the grass-type, Squirtle the water-type, and Charmander the fire-type. This decision would impact my entire journey; I had to make a choice that could make or break me in the future.

“Squirtle.” I reached down and lifted the precious orb from the terminal. I let the Pokéball drop to the ground, it split open and a bright white light appeared, the light twisted and turned in the air, slowly condensing on itself, and faded out, revealing a little blue turtle Pokémon. I crouched down so I was eye level with the Squirtle, “Hey there Squirtle, my name is Fang, and if it’s alright with you, I’d like to be your partner and help train you so we can take on the Pokémon League someday.” The Pokémon looked at me questioningly as it deciphered what I was saying. It lifted its chubby little arms and gave me what looked like a peace-sign. “Oh, and I should give you a name! Hmm…” After a bit of contemplation I finally picked the perfect one, “Leonard.”

As I picked up the little squishy fellow, thanking the professor profusely, and turned to leave, Green grabbed my shoulder and spun me around, a gleaming Pokéball in his hands, barking a challenge at me even though we only just got our Pokémon. Well whatever, if he wants to feel his first loss right now, so be it. I set Leonard on the ground and Green tossed his Pokéball allowing the small grass Pokémon Bulbasaur to materialize. Of course he would make his choice based on my type disadvantage. But I was not perturbed, because at such low levels, his Bulbasaur would not know any super effective moves against Leonard, at least not yet. So I commanded Leonard to Tail Whip a few times to lower Bulbasaur’s Defence, as his own high Defence stats allowed him to brush off Bulbasaur’s weak Tackles. After two Tackles himself, Leonard was able to knock out Bulbasaur, thus ensuring our first victory. Green recalled his fainted Pokemon, groaning about how he made the wrong choice, and ran from the room, unable to bear his loss. So after bidding Professor Oak goodbye, Leonard and I stepped out into the world feeling as if the possibilities were endless and our journey was just beginning.

Team:
;007; Leonard ♂
Tackle | Tail Whip

Okay, I’m really sorry this post turned out so long. I was originally just going to do bullet points highlighting the important parts, but it kinda turned fanfic-ish really quickly. Let me know if you guys are even interested in reading it as a story and I’d probably continue to do so! ^__^

I played Firered for almost 8 hours yesterday, and let me tell you, I almost gave up on this Nuzlocke challenge. I thought I had everything worked out; that all those threads I've read of people's attempts had prepared me for the journey, but sadly, I was mistaken. And the most unfortunate part is that the reason it started to go downhill so badly wasn't entirely my fault. You see, besides a Rattata, the only Pokemon I had upon entering Mt. Moon were weak to Electricity. But since I hadn't seen an electric type yet, I thought I would be fine. Boy, was I wrong. But let me back track a bit, so you know my story:


I just want to point out that I imposed a Dupes Clause (as in I do not consider an encounter the first if I already have that Pokemon) because I really want to have a variety of Pokemon.

After obtaining Leonard my Squirtle, I left Pallet Town and headed North. Since Oak had not yet given me Pokeballs, I didn't count any encounters on this route, so I'd be able to come back and catch something later. I reached Viridian City after Leonard had gained a few levels, healed, and then headed to the Mart. The sales clerk forced me to return to Pallet with a package for Oak, but it worked out because now I could start catching wild Pokemon! After heading back out of Pallet, my first encounter on Rt1 was a Lv3 Pidgey. I caught it and nicknamed him Lucian. By this point Leonard was level 9, so I level grinded until Lucian caught up. Then I headed over to Rt22, desperately hoping my first encounter was a Mankey. Unfortunately, a Lv3 Rattata appeared, and I caught her and nicknamed her Vicky. I headed back to Rt1 and level grinded Vicky to Lv9 as well. See how I thought I'd be good? I have no problem level grinding these Pokemon to decent levels before continuing.

At this point I thought it would be safe to try to go through Viridian Forest. After the pushy old guy forced me to watch him capture a Pokemon, even though I clearly knew what I was doing, I headed to Rt2, where my first encounter was a Lv4 Caterpie (I really wanted a Nidoran, but meh). I nicknamed her Butters, and headed into the forest. My first encounter here was a Lv4 Weedle, which I nicknamed Barbara. The first trainer battle was going fine until the Bug Catcher's Weedle managed to Poison me with Poison Sting. How for the love of god did I forget about Poison?! It's like the bane of all Nuzlockers everywhere! But thankfully I had a few Potions, so I managed to keep Leonard's health up while I ran back to the Pokemon Center. After this little mishap, I went to the Mart and stocked up on as many Antidotes as I could afford (which was only 8). Headed back into the forest I felt a little better knowing I was better prepared. For the remaining trainers I switch trained Butters until it evolved into a Metapod. By this point I exited the forest, where I continued to train Butters, Leonard, Lucian, and Vicky all up to Lv13 for taking on the gym.

Butters (now a Butterfree) was the beast of my team, and along with Leonard, I swept Brock's Pokemon, earning myself my first badge. I healed up, spent a bit on some more Potions for the journey, and headed out to Rt3. Here I obtained the running shoes, and progressed until every trainer on the route had been defeated. I finally reached the grassy area where I was hopeful once again for a Nidoran. And once again I was disappointed when a Lv3 Spearow hoped out at me. Gah! But, I caught her, named her Yolanda, and headed up to the Pokemon Center. I should have noticed at this point, but I now had 3 Flying types, and 1 Water type. But I didn't consider it, and went on my merry way into Mt. Moon.

Here things took a turn for the worse. I'm not a big fan of Geodude, but after watching Marriland's Wedlocke challenge, I could see the potential of having one. However, with my luck, my first encounter was a Zubat (See? Another Flying type). I named her Christina, and she went zipping off to the PC. So I progressed a little through the cave, collecting the items that I thought would probably help me later, when Super Nerd Jovan (I will take this name to my grave), spotted me and our battle ensued. He sent out Magnemite, I sent out Rattata (I love its Run Away ability for the Zubat). I started chipping away at its health, slowly realizing that this thing could potentially be dangerous for the rest of my team. But I thought, "Maybe it doesn't know an electric move yet, it hasn't used one" and I continued to attack it when it suddenly Thundershocked me, KOing Vicky. I was stunned, I had raised that little Rattata from such a young level only to be taken out by my indescretion. I groaned inwardly, my team wouldn't be able to handle such a powerful move. I had to sacrifice someone, so I sent out Barbara to take an attack. She perished in the battle, even before I got a chance to train her. I switched in Butters. Thankfully Vicky weakened it so one Confusion would do the trick. Yes! It fainted and I thought my troubles were over. Alas, the Nerd wanted to send out Voltorb. I started to sweat, I knew Voltorbs were naturally fast. I kept Butters in, not knowing anyone else to be able to try to outspeed it. Butters managed to hit with Sleep Powder! After two Confusions it was gone. I cursed the Nerd after our battle, he had destroyed two of my Pokemon with his nasty Pokemon. I slowly walked back to the Pokemon Center just outside the cave and created a box for my dearly departed. After depositing them, I decided to do a little research.

I picked up the game once more after finding out that the only other Electric type in the cave was a Voltorb that guy had right before the fossils. I knew that my previous strategy would be enough to overpower it, so I set off. Minutes later I was walking out of the cave with a new fossil and defeated Rocket Grunts behind me. I saw I was almost to Cerulean, and that there was one more route before the city that I could catch a Pokemon. Once again hoping for Mankey, but when the grass parted, an Ekans slithered out. I captured her, named her Susan, and decided to train up my Spearow until she matched my team. I had never used Fearow on a team, it had always been Pidgeot, since I was shallow and slightly disgusted with Fearow's design, but for the sake of the challenge, Fearow hit harder and faster, especially considering my Pidgey was Modest.

Finally it was time to head up Nugget Bridge, but I knew my Rival would ambush me as soon as I attempted, so I switched Leonard in first to take on his Pidgeotto. After an easy victory, I healed up and headed up the bridge. I knew the first four people had mostly bugs, so I allowed Yolanda to lead the way. Then, right before the shady Rocket Grunt, the young boy with the Mankey was facing off against Yolanda and I. I thought the battle was our, seeing as we had the type advantage, but when Mankey was blessed with a critical Karate Chop, Yolanda fell. Again I was stunned. All that training was for nothing. I'd never have a Fearow, all my visions of Fearow and I taking on the E4 were dashed in an instant. You know what? Fine. I was just about done. I'd had it. All this death. My bad luck with random encounters. I just wanted to shut the game off and never do a Nuzlocke again. But something inside of me stayed my hand. Once again I took to the internet to do some research. I learned that on Rt24 and Rt25 the only Pokemon I had not encountered were Oddish and Abra. I knew that I wanted an Oddish. Misty's gym was going to be so difficult if I wouldn't be able to capture one. And since there were two routes with the same encounters, I knew I'd be able to get one no matter what! Finally fortune was in my favor! So, I headed into the grass on Rt24, and after encountering a few Pidgey and Rattata, I found an Oddish! I was so excited I took so much care in making sure it did not faint and I caught her, nicknaming her Gloomy.

I spent about 10 minutes training her up to level 18, which is where my remaining Pokemon were at. And after stocking up on a few Potions, I entered the Cerulean City gym. I kept Oddish out first, knowing she'd be able to take out Misty's Staryu easily, and possibly get a status condition on Starmie, where I would swith to Leonard who knew Bite, since he would be resistant (I was unsure if Starmie would know an Ice type move). However, after a few Absorbs, Oddish had completely swept the floor with both of her Pokemon, and evolving into a Gloom right after the battle. I received my second badge! From there my hope in my challenge was restored, and I left Cerulean headed South. In Rt5 I captured a female Meowth and nicknamed her Nala in honor of my cat that just recently passed away, and headed to Rt6 where I defeated all the trainers, but I couldn't capture anything yet since I had all the Pokemon available in the tall grass. And there I saved right before entering Vermillion, where I hope I won't fail this challenge at Lt. Surge's gym. 'Til next time!

Coming fresh off a successful Platinum Nuzlocke, I'm going a bit more old-school with a Sapphire Nuzlocke. Without further ado . . .

Rules
1. If a Pokemon faints, it is considered dead and must be boxed.
2. Only the first Pokemon encountered in each new area can be caught.
3. Duplicates are allowed.

Part 1: The Journey Begins
- Ah, quaint little Littleroot Town, I love thee so. Though I still wonder how a truck got here when there are no roads. Just imagine all the Zigzagoon road-pizza on Route 101 . . .
- Oh hey, a guy getting murdered by a tiny wolf-hyena thing. I'd better send in a gecko to save him.
- Welcome to the team, brave Luke. I have a feeling we're gonna be good friends, especially after seeing the way you beat down that crazy Torchic.
- Route 101: Caught a Wurmple (her name is Cherry)
- Route 103: Luke killed a Poochyena with a critical-hit Absorb. Thanks a lot, Luke!
- Route 102: Caught . . . Surskit. Honestly? Surskit has a 1% chance of appearing and is ABSOLUTE CRAP. Sure, this doesn't happen with the good rare Pokemon, only the bad ones. Er, sorry about that Skittles. I didn't mean to offend you. Honestly, I like Surskit, but if I try using her in the game, she'll get killed. Seriously, I tried training Skittles on Route 101. She was Lv. 4 and was nearly killed by a Lv. 2 Wurmple.
- Cherry evolved into Silcoon while training.
- I left off in Petalburg, getting ready to enter the Gym.

Team
;252;Luke Lv. 10 - Pound, Leer, Absorb
;266;Cherry Lv. 9 - Tackle, String Shot, Poison Sting, Harden

Reserves

Hello everyone, it is me, ShinyMisty. I have once been here before, uploading my FireRed Run...or was it Leafgreen...I can't remember.
But, anywho, I had also started posting my Crystal run here, as well (well, here on Serebii), however, I lost the safe file, so I could play no farther, and had a failed run of Platinum (or gave up)
I have a Randomized SoulSilver run on the Nuzlocke Forums http://s7.zetaboards.com/Nuzlocke_Forum/topic/8757482/10/#new, almost done.
I also had some 3rd Gen runs...but they all failed...^^;

But...this is not why I am here. You guys do not want to hear me babel on about my old runs, do you? No, we are here to talk about the runs we have going on today.
And, I am here to bring my Nuzlocke run...of Pokemon XD, Gale of Darkness.

Yep. I took the liberty to try out Gale of Darkness, and I am not the first, nor the last person to tackle it. But, I will have myself some weird rules. So, here we go:
1) If a Pokemon dies, it is considered dead and can no longer be used
2) Because Pokemon XD has so little Pokemon and areas, the rule of one Pokemon per area has been eliminated! HOWEVER! The new rule is this:
I must roll a die to see who I can and cannot use. If I get a 2, 4, or 6 (Heads), then I am able to use the Pokemon or put the Pokemon in the "On Hold" box. If I get a 1, 3, or 5 (Tails), then I must put the Pokemon in the "Locked" Box. If I run out of all Pokemon in the "On Hold" Box, I may go to the "Locked" Box, and role my die again to see if I can use any Pokemon. If I get tails again, to bad. I still cannot use that Pokemon
Exp: Say I run into a Pikachu (I know you cannot catch a Pikachu, but still). I catch said Pikachu, and roll my die. Say I get...a 3. I am not aloud to use the Pikachu, and must put him into the "Locked" box. But, say I lose ALL of my Pokemon to a hard boss. I may roll my die to try to get that Pikachu. I get a 2 this time, so I can now use him.
This prevents me from using the same, heavy hitting Pokemon.
3) Must nick name all Pokemon...duh.
4) Must try to catch each Shadow Pokemon I run into. If I lose out...ah well, Mirror B can help later on.

I call it the Dicelocke! I feel as though I am not the first person who made this up, but I think I might have made up the name x3

So...without anymore interruptions...

Day 1 of Pokemon XD Dicelocke:
(I will give out natures and such tomorrow. I can't get them at the moment do to my game being in the living room...and I need to be asleep.)
I start the game like every other, gaining my Male Eevee http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/133_zpse792f3ae.png (Who is floating. xD.). I do the stupid hunt for my Sister, and I get to the point where the Professor dude gets stolen. And then,Teddiursa, Female!
From a forced catch, I roll my die. 2! I get to keep Miss Teddiursa. http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/216_zpsc08a83c3.png

I really hate my "sister" though. I get to Gateon Port, and before doing anything else, I evolve my Eevee. Sure, it's my favorite Pokemon...but I want power over favorites. http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/135_zpsb8df93a4.png...Yep. Jolteon. I chose Jolteon because you get virtually NO other Electric type...Jolteon it is.
Still holding off to getting the parts I need to fix up...what ever it it, the purification thingy a-I don't even care; I go Shadow Hunting.
Ledyba, female is next up, and with virtually no trouble catching her and roll the die...5. Poop. Into the box she goes. This makes me sad, because I LOVE Ledian. Though...she might not ever have the good Elemental Punches as she did in my Crystal run. *sigh* I miss you, Nyckelpiga.
My next and last Shadow Pokemon is Poochyena, male, one of my personal favorite Dark types. It took a moment, but I caught him. I roll the die, and comes out 6. YES! http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/261_zps97bac96e.png. Let me try to keep you for a long time!

So, I go to Agate Village, and both Teddiursa and Poochyena's hearts go down to zero from fighting the people around them. Yay! I purify them, and happily name them both (along with nicknaming my Jolteon)
http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/135_zpsb8df93a4.png Raku (based off of the word Rakurai, Japanese for Thunderbolt)
http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/216_zpsc08a83c3.png Rose (Based off of one of the United States' Presidents, Theodore Roosevelt, who was also known as teddy. Becausde Teddiursa is a teddy bear.)
http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/261_zps97bac96e.png Mighty. (Well...because he will be a Mightyena...and I want him to be strong and Mighty...yeah.)

I go to Mt. Battle, do all the stuff, gain some levels, Get to Cipher Lab...and turn back to level up. I had two level 12 Pokemon, and one level 15...I don't think I could take them.
I saved at Mt Battle, after Trainer 15, and that is where my first day ends.

My team is this:
http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/Team1_zps2303b8d7.png

None
http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/165_zps4af5b37b.png
None

And there you have it. Hoping to Arceus that no one will die...*takes deep breath*
I have the chance for some intresting Pokemon coming up, like Houndour, Baltoy, and Spheal. Hoping for one of them. All in the luck of the dice.

This is the best idea ever, do you mind if I do this after my XD scramble run.

6th February 2013, 9:29 PM
Sure, go right ahead.

So...yeah...My day isn't complete, but I will be training for a while, at least until everything is said and done.

Day 2 of Pokemon XD Dicelocke:
I train everyone to level 16, learning the natures as well:
http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/1351_zpse579bbc5.png Modest (↑Special Attack, ↓Attack) OH YEAH! Amazing for a Joldeon...well, could be better, like raising speed, but STILL...If I knew it was this, I might have went with Espeon...Ah well.
http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/2161_zps300b54ff.png Gentle (↑Special Defense, ↓Defense) Could be better, but not complaining.
http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/2611_zps8a18ff8c.png Naive (↑Speed, ↓Special Defense) ...Eh...It's alright.

So I make my way to Cipher Lab, my die in hand, and start to battle the trainers...
I fight the first one, with Houndour, and catch him with not much troubles. I roll my die...5. No Houndour for me.
I heal, and go for the next Pokemon, Spheal. I had sent out Rose, because she has more HP and more Defense than Mighty...and she gets gained up on. Water gun, then Shadow Wave...
Rose didn't stand a chance.
http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/216_zpsc08a83c3.pngR.I.P. Rose, Level 11 to Level 16. You were my first catch...but alas, you were also my first death. http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/2161_zps300b54ff.png
I catch the killer, and roll my die...3...&(%*^^*%. Locked up you go, Spheal.

So, after the lose of my First catch, I go back to Mt. Battle, and train to level 19...

After another round with the second level Mt. Battle, I go in to catch my next Shadow Pokemon Baltoy, which didn't take long...3. I hate this place. *sigh* Locked up you go.
And run into Mareep, catch Mareep, and roll a 5. I am alright with this, because I have Raku. Locked she goes.
Then comes Gulpin, And Gulpin is caught...I though I got a 2...no. 3. THIS GAME HATES ME! Locked.
My last chance, Seedot...who thought it was a fun idea to give this guy a full team of Pokemon, who are all level 9 besides his Shadow Pokemon. *face Palm* I catch her, Close my eyes, and roll. http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b513/ShinyMisty/273_zpse9a40656.png My luck changed; I got a 6.

Yeah, now I have a Seedot to train and purify. See you guys when that happens. Back to Mt. Battle.

Part 2: Zigzagoon is a Criminal Mastermind
- First things first, I met with Norman and witnessed Wally catching his Ralts. Such a touching scene of friendship . . . now let's get the heck out of here.
- Route 104: Caught Wingull (Nigel).
- Petalburg Woods: Caught Zigzagoon (Betty).
- While training in Petalburg Woods, Cherry evolved again into Beautifly.
- Hmm, mysterious strangers attacking people in the woods. That seems slightly suspicious. Betty sure taught his Poochyena a lesson :3
- Into Rustboro . . . and right on through to keep training.
- Route 116: Caught another Zigzagoon (Tina).
- Rusturf Tunnel: Caught a . . . GASP! Whismur! Who could have seen this coming? His name is Boomer. Now that he's here, Skittles is resting in the box out of harm's way.
- UBER-TRAINING MONTAGE!
- I swear to Arceus, I got more items from my two Zigzagoon's Pickup than I've ever gotten before. And all that was in about a half-hour time period. During that time, Betty and Tina brought in a Full Heal, an Ultra Ball, and THREE RARE CANDIES. Seriously, Zigzagoon is now my new favorite Pokemon. Betty, Tina, thank you!
- Next time, I'll be training up more before facing Roxanne.

Part 3: Two Badges for the Price of One, Grandma!
- After doing more training, Luke evolved into Grovyle.
- I finally took on Roxanne, sweeping the floor with her using Luke.
- Oh great, that Team Aqua dingbat has returned. I'm not too keen on helping people, but I can't really pass up the opportunity to have Betty beat the crap out of his Poochyena again.
- And now I'm a glorified errand boy. At least I get a GPS in exchange . . . wait a second, that's a crap deal. Why is the stupid President sending a letter to his grandson when he is HANDING OUT CELL PHONES TO CHILDREN? Just give the dang guy a call!
- Ah, Dewford Town. One of my all time favorite towns from the Pokemon world, right up there with Olivine, Lilycove, and Sunyshore. The music is dang awesome too.
- Granite Cave: Caught Makuhita (Molly).
- I did a ton of training in Granite Cave before finding Steven and delivering his letter.
- I took on Brawly's Gym and Nigel just ripped everything apart. Cherry also helped in Makuhita's downfall by poisoning it.
- Lastly, I went to Slateport City and headed up to Route 110 to catch a new team member. I got an Electrike: his name is Tyson.

Here's my progress on a LeafGreen Nuzlocke I started last night. Just the two basic rules (because I have an awful Nuzlocke winning percentage when I start adding more difficulty rules).

Current location: St. Anne
Badges: 2
Time: 4-5 hours

Name: Raphael
Level: 26
Moves: Tackle/Water Pulse/Withdraw/Bite

Also in party for non-training purposes: Tov the Meowth (Pickup artist)

Currently at Daycare: Bella the Bellsprout

In storage: Drew the Caterpie, WormyBug the Weedle, Velvet the Rattata, Will the Magikarp, Isaac the Geodude

The story so far: I actually started this Nuzlocke by selecting Bulbasaur... who promptly died to Blue's Charmander in its very first battle. Ah well. I restarted and selected Raphael who made short work of Blue's Bulbasaur (I guess it wasn't the day to be a Bulbasaur). Raphael made short work Brock and his Rock/Ground types, and by the time I reached Misty, I had both Raphael and Princess trained up enough to take her down with ease. Leading up to Surge, I'm training up Cassandra to take him down with great ease (presumably).

SAPPHIRE NUZLOCKE CHALLENGE

Part 4: Crowning Achievements

- I got a lot of training done in Slateport City before heading off to the Oceanic Museum to challenge those weird goons from before.
- The Aqua Grunts wanted to battle again, and this time they got their revenge . . . Tyson was killed by a critical-hit Bite from Carvanha. R.I.P. Tyson, I wish you could have been around longer.
- Archie, I swear to you I shall avenge Tyson. Team Aqua will pay!
- After heading north to Route 110 and took on May, who I beat without trouble. Luke beat Wailmer and Nigel beat Combusken and Shroomish.
- Route 117: Caught Oddish (Marley).
- While training around Mauville City and Verdanturf Town, Boomer evolved into Loudred and Molly evolved into Hariyama.
- Molly proved herself a machine of destruction by sweeping Watson to get my third badge.
- While heading north on Route 111, Nigel evolved into Pelipper. The Finding Nemo reference finally makes sense now that he's a pelican :P
- Route 112: Caught Machop (Alice).
- Fiery Path: Caught Torkoal (Kame).
- Route 113: Caught Skarmory (Zan).
- After finally reaching the Pokemon Center in Fallarbor Town, I considered bringing Kame and Zan to the team, but ultimately decided to keep Betty and Tina. It's true, the two are virtually useless in battles, but their Pickup has been invaluable. Today alone, they got me a boatload of Revives to sell, several Full Heals and Ultra Balls, a Protein, four Rare Candies, and TWO KING'S ROCKS. Yup, those two are okay in my book.
- Route 114: Caught Swablu (Cumulus).
- Meteor Cave: Caught Zubat (Batgirl).
- It seems Team Aqua is up to no good again in Meteor Cave. And now Team Magma enters the scene . . . something tells me they're going to do more harm than good.
- I went through Meteor Cave and did some training on the other side, and that's where I left off.

- The title says it all. I got a lot of stuff done today, so I'll keep my post as brief as possible.
- Went up to Mt. Chimney, crushed Archie and Team Aqua.
- Headed to Lavaridge, destroyed Flannery with Nigel.
- Returned to Petalburg, destroyed Norman with Molly and Luke.

- Beat Team Aqua at the Weather Institute
- Beat May with no trouble
- Found some invisible Snorlax (a cookie for anyone who gets the reference)
- Beat Winona using Fleck and Nigel; had some scary moments while Nigel fought Altaria, but everything turned out okay in the end.
- Headed out from Fortree to Lilycove, training all the way.
- Added yet another new team member on Mt. Pyre - Kit the Vulpix.
- I left off preparing to face Team Aqua on Mt. Pyre.

Deceased: N/A

The story so far: Eight and a half hours in, and still no losses to the team. I'm pretty excited about that! I was really looking forward to catching a Vulpix, so when I saw one on the route between Lavender Town and Saffron, I was thrilled... until it Roared itself away! Luckily, I found another in the short patch of grass between Saffron and Celadon. That one TRIED to Roar, but it failed, which I've never seen happen in the wild before, so I started just chucking balls at it until I caught it. Fighting Team Rocket and Erika's gym were great training for Vlam, and I got it up to 29 (level it learns Flamethrower) in no time.

I just beat the Marowak ghost in Lavender Town, and doing well. I might catch the Snorlax coming up on the water route between Lavender and Fuschia, but first I'll be heading to Saffron to take down the fighting gym, Sabrina, and Team Rocket again!

@ VioiV, I would just post it here considering it is basically a Nuzlocke with a few extra restrictions.

I decided to keep Cerberus on the team for a little longer in order to abuse its Intimidate if necessary. I finally continued west of Fallarbor Town and battled a few fishermen and watched as Puppee evolved into Manectric! In the grass I captured a Lombre (Lily) and then beat the rest of the trainers. Inside Meteor Falls I caught a Zubat (Bruce) and then watched as Team Aqua and Team Magma had the equivalent of a shouting match. They headed for Mt Chimney so I did as well. I was a little too late however as Archie had already started his.....whatever he was doing. But my team was more than capable of stopping him! Punchy took out Mightyena with a Vital Throw and then Puppee defeated his Golbat and Sharpedo with Spark. Both teams ran and I headed down the Jagged Pass and captured a Machop (KehRaTay). After a couple trainer battles I was in Lavaridge Town where I took a break.

I decided to skip over the Wynaut egg for now and get it if I really need it. Since there is nothing to do in Lavaridge I went straight to the gym. Skipper took out most of the gym trainers and before I knew it I was challenging Flannery. Skipper took out both of her Slugma with Mud Shot right off the bat. Then she sent out Torkoal. Ugh. Water Gun barely did any damage and of course Body Slam paralyzed Skipper. I switched to Cerberus in order to heal up Skipper and have Intimidate run its course but I completely forgot that Torkoal has White Smoke so Intimidate didn't work! And as luck would have it, Body Slam paralyzed Cerberus. I was afraid to swap out to anything for fear of Overheat so I made the tough choice...I sacrificed Cerberus. Skipper came back out and did a little more damage but, of course, Body Slam paralyzed Skipper. Since its Sp Atk had been lowered I felt comfortable enough to switch to Puppee and after a few Sparks Torkoal fainted. I got my badge and left. I deposited Cerberus and then ran to the desert.

In the desert I found a Trapinch (Percy) and I also grabbed the Root Fossil. I quickly went to Rustboro and revived the fossil into a Lileep (Felipe). I added Felipe to the team and went to the Trick House and did the next challenge before going back to the desert. I saved before doing there.

Cassandra the Sandslash, level 42

The story so far: It's almost impossible to get cleanly through a Nuzlocke without any fatalities, and I experienced my first this weekend, when I foolishly thought Cassandra could tank an attack from Sabrina's Alakazam after it had +1 Calm Mind. One non-critical Psychic was all it take to shuffle off her mortal coil. Her service in defeating Lt. Surge will never be forgotten.

In the meantime, I had a hard time deciding on my Saffron City catch (Hitmonchan, Hitmontop, or Lapras), but I went with Hitmonchan. It even had an Adamant nature, so that was lucky. Too bad in Gen 3, that means his element punches hit with less impact. I'll erase them soon enough.

After capturing the Marsh and Soul badges (and, by the way, shouldn't their names really be reversed based on what types they represent?), we have been traveling Kanto and using the VS Seeker to level everyone up before adding a new friend to the team. We're not sure who to go with yet for our 5th, but we'll be settling on that soon enough.

I started a nuzlocke challenge in Ruby version today.
My rules:
1. Shiny pokemon defy all rules.If I find one, I may catch it, but I may not use it in the challenge unless it is the first pokemon I find in that place. If a shiny pokemon faints, it is kept safe in a separate box until the end of the challenge.
2. I can only catch the first pokemon I encounter in each place
3. If a pokemon faints, it is sent to the cemetery box as soon as possible. This box is for record keeping only, and every pokemon inside of it by the end of the challenge will be released. No exceptions.
4. The challenge ends when either: a) I defeat the pokemon league, or b) I white/black out at any time.
5. All pokemon must receive nicknames.

So far this run through has been a little uneventful (thank goodness). So far on my team I have: a level 17 Grovyle named Faunus who is a boy with a Calm nature, a level 17 Poochyena named Fenrir(if you don't know what this is, Google it. It fits Poochyena and her evolution perfectly) who is a girl with a Naive nature, a level 17 Beautifly named Hurley who is a girl with a Calm nature, a level 17 Zigzagoon named Zigbar who is a boy with a Jolly nature, a level 17 Zigzagoon named Rocky who is an boy and has an Adamant nature, and a boxed level 8 Zigzagoon named Chomper with a Jolly nature. As of now, we have no deaths!
Right now we are training for the first gym battle. Wish us luck!

P.S. Right now I am writing this on a tablet. From now on I will try to use a computer and notes to provide a much more detailed story of what's been happening and a team and death section at the end of every post. Also,while I am doing this Nuzlocke challenge, I will be hunting for a shiny HG starter. So once I find that, I will be Nuzlocke challenge there as well, most likely after I'm done with the Ruby run through

Wish me good luck and good luck on all of your challenges! I hope you all stay tuned.

Edit: So here is another progress report from last time. Since I last left off, I went off to battle the first gym leader. I won that badge after a quite easy battle because of Faunus the Grovyle. I then trained all my pokemon in my party up to level 20, which made my Poochyena evolve into a Mightyena and my two Zigzagoons to evolve into Linoone. Then I quickly hit the tunnel (the name escapes me at the moment) and caught a level 7 Whismur named Ekho. He joined the party and I trained him up into a level 20 Loudred. I then sailed off to the next city, and sweeped through with no training. I got the gym badge, caught (and boxed) a tenticool named MrTenticle, and caught a Zubat. I am now in Slateport training my pokemon to level 25 (after catching another Zigzagoon on Route 110 who I boxed.) I am debating on dropping one of my Linoone's and training up my Zubat to the rest of my team to use. Let me know what you guys what you think.

Quick question as well. Where do you guys get your icons to do the team, boxed, and dead pokemon? I would love to add that to my updates.

I have started a Pokemon Dark Rising Nuzlocke (a hack of Fire Red)

The rules are simple
1. Can only catch the first encounter on the route.
2. If it is duplicate I can opt to catch another pokemon or catch that pokemon if it's original is dead. (if I have let's say a growlithe and he is alive, I cannot catch the next growlithe I encounter. If the growlithe I had is dead I may catch the next growlithe I see)
3. All pokemon must recieve a nickname.
4. If a Pokemon faints it must be released.

What is Dark Rising?
Well it's a hack of Fire Red that changes the story and replaces certain pokemon to add in 4th and 5th gen pokemon. I recently figured out this game is really challenging seeing as you need level 100 pokemon for the Elite Four. So join me on my adventure on this maddening nuzlocke.

Here is the playlist of my adventures so far.

So I'm starting a nuzlocke on my emerald version with the basic rules. I rnged for Mt starter and got a torchic which I banned torch (ya I'm not real creative.). I leveled out up to nine before beating may with one scratch. I then guy my pokeballs Abe caught apoochyena nabbed xena, and a seedot. I'm currently hanging out at the Pokemon center in petalburgh city.

Edit: I lost seedot to the twins on the bridge south of rustborough...

I won my second ever Nuzlocke, even more easily than my first (previously in this topic, on Sapphire). I only have a few minutes here to revel in my victory, so here's a brief summary:

Final team...

1) Raphael the Blastoise. Level 56. Surf, Brick Break, Bite, Return

2) Princess the Pidgeot. Level 57. Aerial Ace, Fly, Feather Dance, Double Team

3) Vlam the Ninetales. Level 56. Flamethrower, Confuse Ray, Will O Wisp, Quick Attack

4) Jack the Hitmonchan. Level 56. Sky Uppercut, Strength, Earthquake, Bulk Up

5) Happy the Muk. Level 56. Minimize, Acid Armor, Sludge, Sludge Bomb

6) Zena the Slowbro. Level 39. Space-filler.


Time: ~28 hours.


Elite Four breakdown:

Lorelei - Raphael swept Agatha thanks to Brick Break and Bite. The only problem turned out to be her Jynx, who just kept freezing Raphael with Ice Punch (seriously...3 out of 5 Ice Punches froze me!) or putting him to sleep with Lovely Kiss. But Raph perservered and won the day.

Bruno - I led with Raphael to beat Onix, then switched to Jack to sweep the rest of his team. Bulk Up x 5 against Bruno's own Hitmonchan, and then one Sky Uppercut felled the rest of his team.

Agatha - Pidgeot sweep! Against her Gengar, both Princess and Gengar started out by spamming Double team. Unfortunately for Gengar, Princess had Aerial Ace. After opening DT x 6, I easily handled her whole team.

Lance - Led with Raphael to take down Gyarados with a bunch of Bite attacks. After Gyarados, I switched to Happy against Lance's Dragonair. Acid Armor x 3 and Minimize x5 to open, and then I pretty easily tanked and beat everything he threw at me.

Rival/Blue - I opened Vlam against his Pidgeot. Will O Wisp and Confuse Ray and Flamethrowers to beat it. Then Raphael came in against Rhydon for OHK Surf. Princess came in against Venusar and while 'Saur spammed Growth, Princess spammed Double Team. After two or three Fly attacks, that was over. Princess stayed out to beat Alakazam. Gyarados came out next, and I left in Princess. Despite SEVERAL Double teams, Gyarados proceeded to hit Hydro Pump FOUR TIMES IN A ROW. Didn't matter because Princess tanked like a boss. I used up all my Aerial Ace and Fly while Blue kept Full Restoring, so I resorted to Feather Dancing it twice and then switching out to Happy for the win. Arcanine was last, Roar'ed away my boosted Muk. Vlam came out and absorbed a Flamethrower and took out Arcanine.

I didn't lose a single team member in the E4/Championship! Nice!

It's been a while since my last update, but I need to stop in to give some news. Hephaestus, my level 46 Camerupt has just been defeated by Ground on to make the first death of my run :( I'll give the info on the run when I defeat the elite four. RIP Hephaestus

Just (re)started my leafgreen Nuzlocke, after being corner by the Fighting Dojo trainers.
Previous team
Ningame the Wartortle
Bayguel the Sandslash
Chimera the Eevee (unused)
Slave the Bellsprout (slave? Yeah, also, the only survivor of the onslaught of the fighting dojo...the f$@&?!)
Fallen comrades:
Clefinity the Clefable
Taka the Pidgeotto (truly missed)
Stubs the Dugtrio
Venus the Weepinbel
Many (so many) Rattatas
Secret Guy the female Zubat
And lastly, Lanza the Magikarp.
But! Know I have Katon the Charmander, Tailwind the Pidgey, and Roadie the Rattata. This file will turn out much better than the previous two.
My second was non-existent. I lost to the second rival battle :(
Wish me luck!

Rules I'll use:
Fainted pokemon will be dead (but boxed, with a sky wallpaper)
One catch per route! But no duplicates, which I should have employed on my first file..
Rare candies can revive a fainted pokemon, BUT only if I have it in my bag, while the pokemon is still "dead", and it must redeem itself with a battle without being healed beforehand.
Wish me luck!

Woah, it has been... quite a while O.o After beating May I trained my Pokemon to levels 21-23, got the bike, beat a few trainers and went to the gym. I had Dojo (Breloom) up front, and was feeling confident. Dojo OHKO'd Magnemite, GOAL beat Voltorb (though he survived wit only 2 HP left), and RoastChick beat Magneton. No deaths in this gym either, yay! :D Though I'm not looking forward for the next one... fire types... ugh.... Not being able to catch new Pokemon on the route to west, I just battled the trainers. Once I got to Verdanturf I stopped and tooka break

I cleared the desert of all the trainers and then I spent a long time training my entire team up to Lv30. Once I did that I hurried over to Petalburg and entered into my dad's gym. I defeated every single gym trainer with Punchy just to be on the safe side. I ended up taking a break before challenging Norman because I was terrified of losing team members. After two months I finally gathered the courage to challenge him. Punchy started off with a Fake Out on his first Slaking and then a couple Vital Throw's knocked it out. Puppee defeated Vigoroth with 2 Spark's, and then Norman's second Slaking was defeated the same way as the first one. All that worry for such an easy fight??? I got my badge and then taught Skipper Surf.

I decided to go do another Trick House challenge so I went east of Oldale and let Cheeky have a chance to shine against the Fighting types. Then I went to Slateport and surfed all the way to Dewford Town, skipping the Abandoned Ship for now. I caught a Tentacool (Jelly) on Route 109 and then a Wingull (Belle) on Route 107 but thanks to a Repel I skipped Route 108 for now. I took a break after healing in Dewford Town.

I went back to the Abandoned Ship and cleared it before sailing back to Petalburg City. I went to Mauville City and learned from Wattson about some generator problems so I investigated and captured a Magnemite (PolesApart) in Old Mauville. I stopped the generator, got Thunderbolt, and then headed east onto Route 118 where I fished up a Magikarp (Derp) on Route 118. I beat the trainers in the area and proceeded north onto Route 119 and captured a Linoone (Ughghgh2). I made my way through the entire route and cleared out the Weather Institute and May no sweat. I healed in Fortree City and then went east onto Route 120 where I captured the hidden Kecleon (Cammo). I returned to Fortree and headed to the gym.

I let Slucious and Puppee take care of the gym trainers, but Winona proved to be a team effort. Skipper barely pulled off a victory against her Swellow, Puppee defeated both Skarmory and Pelliper with Spark, and then Altaria went down thanks to a collaborative effort from Punchy and Cheeky. I got Aerial Ace and then headed down Route 120. Skipper evolved into Swampert along the way which was awesome, but then tragedy struck! Felipe fainted from a critical hit Water Pulse from that freaking Milotic!! I decided on Cammo as Felipe's replacement. I took a break after the devastating loss.

Now I have begun a Pokemon Firered Nuzlocke run

I follow the rules

If a Pokemon faints it is counted as dead and should be released
I'm only allowed to catch the first pokemon I encounter in the area.


Here is my progress

I started the game and named myself Aakash, while naming my rival Aswin. I chose Bulbasaur as my starter, my rival got a Charmander. I named my Bulbasaur Brute Root. I battled and defeated my rival. After that I went out and entered Route 1 and trained there. I went all the way to Viridian City for the Poke Mart and got Oaks Parcel. Upon returning to Professor Oaks Lab. I got my Pokedex and 5 Pokeballs.

I re-entered Route 1 and caught a Pidgey and named her Birdy. I trained both Brute Root and Birdy. After going west of Viridian City, I enter Route 22 and caught a Spearow and named him Halbird. I just trained them


;001; Brute Root- Lv9

rules:

-A fainted pokemon is death.
-I can only catch the first pokemon in an area, that isn't a duplicate.
-No trading unless for evolving.
-No nicknames, seriously I hate them.
-Before every gym I have to add 1 pokemon. So for example I need 2 for gym one, 3 for gym 2, 4 for gym 3, etc..

For my pokemon Emerald I decided to go with a nuzlocke using the above mentioned rules, my starter will be Torchic. I did all the beginning stuff defeating May and getting a pokemon. For the Nuzlocke I will count Torchic as a Littleroot Town pokemon.

Now I could finally start, I went to catch some pokemon first; Route 101: Wurmple Route 102: Poochyena Route 103: Zigzagoon. I defeated the trainers on my way to Petalburg and I helped Wally get his Ralts. I went to Route 104, where I got a Wingul. I defeated the trainers there and went to Petalburg woods. I defeated the team aqua member there easily. I got myself a shroomish in Petalburg forest and went north back into Route 104, there defeated the other trainers and went into Rustboro City. Went east to Route 116 that is where I added a Taillow to my collection. And on the Rustturf Tunne I suprisingly came across a whismur. I trained my Torchic an extra level so he would evolve into a Combusken. After that I defeated the first Gym.

First time doing a Nuzlocke, so doing it in the game I know the best Pokemon Emerald. Since this is my first go through I'm keeping the rules simple.

-A fainted Pokemon is dead.
-I can only catch the first Pokemon in an area, that isn't a duplicate.
-No Pokemon that require trading.
-Every change in encounter percentage is considered a new area. (Easy mode for first Nuzlocke)

Journal-

Why do I keep on criting everything I'm trying to catch? Thank goodness I'm only using Mud-Slap.

Team so far.

Continuing on from route 104 after helping Wally catch his Ralts I ran into one of my favourite pokemon off Tailow. Managed to catch Him and named him Ace. Beat all the trainers and running low on health with all pokemon except Seno. caught Shroomish in Petalborg forest and continuing on to the next city in hope for healing. Passed through Rustboro City and healed up continued on to route 116 found a whismur and named him Beatz. Training everyone up on route 116 before going to fight Roxanne while doing that we Lost Nasus. Had another bad switch out while training and lost Beatz already. Ivy Solo'd Roxannes gym and lost no one.

With a horrible start we lose Scout while trying to help get Team Aqua. after getting the PokeNav we continue on to the next area, During the fight with Brendan, Seno has Evolved. After getting to Dewford City i realise my pokemon will be too weak to beat Brawly so i go off to train in the cave, after training in the cave getting Ace to 16, Seno to 21 and Ivy to 15 we manage to defeat Brawly and give Steven the note. As well as managed to catch an Aron named Ms. Stark. and now we had off to Slateport.

After gettign to Slateport we catch a Eletrike and named her sovi, shortly after we lose her and Ms. Stark, and then we head off to challenge Mauvilles gym leader after some long training. Ace has evolved and Ivy has evolved. We head up to Mt Chimney to help Team Aqua stop Team Magma and then down to challenge Flannery and get an Egg. We get Go-goggles and catch a Trapinch named JetStream. To end of the night last night we went to beat Norman which was really easy with Seno and Ivy with their fighting moves.

The egg hatches and we catch some new pokemon, Swablu and Marill (Cloud Nine and Rollz) and we head off to route 118 by surfing across and getting a good rod, We catch another Manetrike and name it Bolt. As well as fishing finds us a level 27 Carvanha named Kisame and caught it which is going to be a big help we also lose Rollz in a trainer battle. in a double battle on route 123 we lose cloud 9. Ivy goes down to Poison after a trainer battle... Caught a Tropius named it Banana and as a gift we got a Castform Named Strata During the battle with Brendan we lost Tropius. We make it to Fortree City, With half my pokemon under level we will be training for a while.

Damn it... Last time I stopped in Verdanturf. Well, I did whatever there was to do there, which really isn't the important part of this post. I lost Dustox to a critical hit in a battle... I continued, and failed to capture a Skarmory, but caught a Machop who I called Muscles in a route before. But then... I lost Loudred to a critical hit in a battle... and I lost Machop against a Numel who got a critical hit... I defeated all trainers and got to Fallarbor Town without losing anyone else... I taught Gulpin Double Team, because I believe it will be a life saver against Flannery. I also got Dig, yay. And now, I am ready to go to Lavaridge Town! On the way, GOAL the Gulpin evolved into Swalot. I caught a Solrock named Helios in the Meteor Falls place. I caught a Solrock which went down quickly due to a very very very stupid mistake of mine. Gosh, I do too many dumb mistakes. Then... Team Magma. I went to the volcano thingy and battled Maxie... Combusken beat Mightyena... and went down to a Magnitude from Camerupt... Then it got a crit Magnitude on Swalot... which knocked it out... So then I only had Breloom against Camerupt... Somehow Breloom knocked it out... but it was useless... Golbat defeated Breloom...

I give up on this nuzlocke :( Critical hits killed all my team members except for Solrock and Combusken...

Sadly my Platinum Nuzlocke just ended a couple of hours ago, Lucian's Gallade killed 4/6 of my team, the other two were killed by Flint's Magmortar. I've got the Nuzlocke bug, so I figured I would move on to FireRed, and so I did.

Rules
1) If a Pokemon faints, it will be permaboxed.
2) Nickname everything.
3) If I see a duplicate of something I already have on a new route, too bad, that's it.
4) The entire cave is one encounter, not each level.
5) Battle is SET, not SHIFT.

Booted up the game, named the boy Red and the rival Blue, and chose Bulbasaur, which I named Jeff. Beat my rival, delivered the Parcel, and got the Poke Balls. Caught a Pidgey (Boeing) on Route 1, Mankey (Caesar) on Route 22, Rattata (Lab Rat) on Route 2, and Caterpie (Fuzzy) in Viridian Forest. Boxed Lab Rat and Boeing, and grinded Jeff, Fuzzy, and Caesar up to L10, Fuzzy evolving into Butterfree in the process. Went through Viridian Forest, and made it to the Gym. Even at L10, Jeff OHKO'd everything with Vine Whip, and left the Gym at L15. I had grinded Fuzzy and Caesar to L13 before the Gym, which was easy with all the trainers in the forest and the rival battle. Got the Running Shoes (FINALLY), caught a Spearow (Beaker) on Route 3, and grinded it up to L13. Now I'm beating the trainers along the way to Mt. Moon, and praying for a Clefairy in there, even though I'll probably get Zubat.

After defeating the first gym I healed my pokemons, I did the team aqua bit and got my pokenav. I challenged may who I defeated quite easily. After that I went to the sailor close to petalburg City and used the boat to get to Dewford city. I healed my pokemon and went to the Granite cave. I decided to split up the cave in two parts for my nuzlocke, the upper part *everything that is light* and the lower part where it is dark. in the upper part I got a makuhita and the lower part I got an Aron, which the latter I added to my team.

I continued and met with Steven then I went back to dewford town. That is were I got and Old rod and went fishing, I got a magikarp on Route 106 and a Tentacool in Dewford Town. After that I challenged the second gym which I easily defeated.

Pokemon Emerald Randomizer Nuzlocke Challenge.

-Couple things to Note:
Playing with Dupes Clause intact
With Dupes Clause it does not apply to the evolutionary family but rather just the individual Pokemon
I did not randomize the starters and any interacting Pokemon
Pretty much all the rules of a typical Nuzlocke apply



Chapter 1: Rock the Stone Badge

-Since my Trainer I.D ended in "0" I got to choose which of the starters I wanted and I chose Torchic.

19th August 2013, 1:40 PM
Decided to start a nuzlocke in Pokémon FireRed, after my success in Emerald, with the following rules:

- Just one Pokémon per zone.
- Must nickname every Pokémon.
- Fainted Pokémon are dead.
- Not 3 Pokémon of the same species/evolutionary line. (If I met a third Pokémon, it doesn't count as the first Pokémon of that zone).
- Can only have one Snorlax.
- Routes do not count until I get the Poké Balls
- Different floors of caves do not count as different places.

Just started and...

- Started my adventure and picked the Potion from my PC.
- Chose Charmander, named Emberer, and went to face Gary.
- Gary's Squirtle used Tail Whip and then two critical Tackles, defeating Emberer.
- Failure.

That was fast... 1-1 in nuzlocke challenges... Let's see if I am luckier the next time.

-

-

Emberer the Charmander, Lv 5-5, died to Gary's Squirtle...

So I am going to start again, picking up Charmander again, and with the same rules. :(

EDIT: Just restarted it:

- Started my adventure and picked the Potion from my PC.
- Chose Charmander, named Ascua, and went to face Gary. The Charmander has a Hasty Nature, and sadly less Special Attack than the one of the previous challenge
- Defeated Gary really easily, just one Growl and then Scratch the whole battle.
- Went to Viridian, gaining some experience for Charmander (Lv 8).
- Took Oak's Parcel in the Pokémart, and went back to Pallet Town, where I got the Poké Balls.
- Caught a Lv 4 Rattata, and I named it Fear because of its famous FEAR set. Trained it up to level 7, with trouble, because a critical Tackle from another Rattata left it with 2 HP.
- Went to Route 22, and there I met a Mankey. I thought: "A great Pokémon for Brock, just what I needed!" And Fear then did a critical Tackle, destroying the Lv 2 Mankey... Brock will be harder to get past...
- Trained there before facing Gary, got Ascua to Lv 10, and Fear to Lv 9.
- Fear soloed Gary, but I needed to use my two Potions.
- Bought 2 Potions and 10 Poké Balls, and went to Route 2.
- There I caught a Lv 3 Pidgey, which I named Piu.

;019; Fear, Lv 9, Hardy nature.
;004; Ascua, Lv 10, Hasty nature.
;016; Piu, Lv 3, Bashful nature.

-

-

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: Have kept going a bit, here is the progress

- Trained Piu up to level 9.
- Bought some Antidotes in Viridian.
- Went to Viridian Forest.
- I met a lv 5 Metapod there, which I caught and named Capulli. Sadly, it was Adamant.
- Went through the forest defeating the Bug Catchers really easily.
- Now training for Brock, because Charmander/Pidgey/Rattata is not a very good team for Brock, so I want to have Charmeleon at least.
- Ascua evolved and now I'll try beating Brock.
- Ascua soloed Brock easily thanks to a Rock Tomb miss. Metal Claw did not boost my Attack until it was irrelevant, but anyways I could win.
- Went to Route 3. I got the Running Shoes.
- Piu was killed! That annoying lv 14 Spearow of the youngster... it used Leer, and then Fury Attack hit me 5 times and one of them critical. Sadly, I couldn't 2HKO it with Quick Attack, leaving it with 1 or 2 HP... R.I.P. Piu... Left Capulli boxed as well as I won't be using it.
- Another Pidgey was my encounter at Route 3, a lv 7 Pidgey, my second and last Pidgey (according to my rules, I can't have more than 3 of the same species, but I can have 2). But sadly, I kept on being unlucky, and Fear, again, as with Mankey, did a critical hit with Tackle.
- I got to Route 4, and there I didn't take the Magikarp because I preferred catching a wild Pokémon after exitting Mt. Moon.
- I can't believe what's going on today. I entered Mt. Moon, and ther I met a lv 7 Geodude, which I caught and named Puncher. But it is Calm! Not the best Geodude I can have but I guess I'll need it for now.
- Taught Puncher Rock Tomb and went to Route 3 to train it.
- Puncher got to lv 15.
- After that I went to Mt. Moon, I picked up the items and fought all the trainers. There weren't many problems, just an annoying Zubat that cunfused my Puncher, and then hax participated, Puncher hit itself three times by the Confusion.
- I got to the other part of Route 4. I taught Mega Kick to Ascua, and Mega Punch to Puncher.
- Another Rattata was my encounter at Route 4, a lv 10 Rattata, which I caught and named Top. It was a Quirky Rattata. Well, Rattata was not what I wanted, but at least it means that I cannot catch any more Rattata or Raticate. I went to Cerulean City after that.
- There I healed my team, and then faced Gary. Geodude beat Pidgeotto and Rattata easily, Abra was a joke, and Rattata beat, not without trouble, Squirtle. Beating Misty will be really hard if I had trouble against a Squirtle... Got the Fame Checker.
- The 4th trainer at the Nugget Bridge made my Fear evolve into Raticate.
- A lv 7 Caterpie was my Route 24 encounter... bad news... Let's see if Route 25 is better (please, not a Weedle...), because otherwise I'll have trouble against Misty... I caught it and named it Spupa. It's my last Pokémon of the Caterpie line, and my first female Pokémon.
- ...I saw it coming... after a Caterpie and 2 Pidgeys, Pokémon I cannot catch, as I had already met them twice, a Weedle appeared... curses. Why not an Oddish? No, bad luck goes after me... Anyways, I caught the Weedle, and named it Gafe (which means unlucky person in Spanish). It was a Calm Weedle... Useless.
- Found a hidden Berry and went back to Cerulean to get the Powder Jar.
- I began battling the trainers at Route 25; my Geodude wanted to learn Selfdestruct, which is arguably the best existent move for a nuzlocke challenge...
- Picked TM43, Secret Power, and taught it to Fear. It's a very reliable move to use when I can't afford to miss a Hyper Fang.
- Got the S.S Ticket from Bill. I won't go to the Cerulean Gym yet because Starmie could crush my whole team; I'll go to Vermilion first.
- Easily beat the Rocket Grunt and got TM28 Dig.
- Went to Route 5, and my encounter there was...
- ... obviously, a Meowth! (Lv 10) I caught it and named it Maul. It was Rash. I don't plan to use it for now, but Pickup will give me some useful items.
- Went to Route 6, and there, after a Pidgey, I met... another cat, a lv 12 Meowth. I caught it and named it Biendicho. It was Bashful. Well, I'll have two Pickup Pokémon now.
- I was close to losing Fear! The trainer sent a lv 20 Squirtle (I remembered there was one trainer with Squirtle in this Route, but I thought it was the female trainer...), and I switched my Ascua out and sent Fear, who had 41/59 HP. He used Bubble, a critical hit, 31/59. I used Secret Power and paralyzed it. He used Water Gun, a critical hit, 3/59!! That was close. Secret Power finished it off.
- I got to Vermilion City and got the VS Seeker, the Bike Voucher and the Old Rod. Then I went to Route 11.
- There I met a Lv 11 Drowzee, which I caught and named Dreammm. I added it to my team, removing Spupa. It was Mild.
- Went back to Route 24 to train Dreammm. Got my Bike at Cerulean also.
- After training Dreammm up to lv 19, I began using the VS Seeker there, and Dreamm was close to die due to a Zubat, whose Supersonic and Bite made me hit myself or flinch every single turn.
- After that I went back to Route 11 to beat the remaining trainers.
- That was easy, and after finishing I entered the Diglett's cave, where I caught a lv 17 Diglett, which I named Molish. A Jolly Diglett! I replaced one of the Meowths (Maul, the weakest of the 2) for it. After that I went to the S.S. Anne.
- I noticed that Biendicho had a TM10! Pickup is useful.
- I battled the trainers in the ship. Not very hard battles (My Dreammm and my Puncher evolved!) I also got TM31 and TM44. Then I went to face Gary.
- Puncher outsped and KOed its Pidgeotto and easily beat Raticate as well, Fear 2HKOed its Wartortle using Secret Power and Dreammm OHKOed Kadabra using Headbutt. A really easy battle because Gary is a bit underleveled here.
- Got HM01 Cut here and taught it to Biendicho.
- Bye, S.S. Anne!
- I need the second badge to use Cut outside of the battle, so I went back to Cerulean. I feel my team is ready for Misty.
- I wasn't touched at the Gym! Fear OHKOed the whole Gym using Hyper Fang and Secret Power, except for Starmie, who was 2HKOed and paralyzed via Secret Power, being unable to move. I got the Cascade Badge and TM03 Water Pulse. Now I can use Cut.
- Went back to Vermilion and there I used my Old Rod to get a lv 5 Magikarp, I caught it and named it Krapp. It was Adamant.
- I went through Diglett's Cave, and got HM05 Flash (I owned exactly 15 Pokémon!) Then I was ready to go to the Gym.
- LT. Surge was an easy battle, as Dreammm beat Voltorb and Pikachu easily, and Raichu was very very easy for Puncher. Time to go to Route 9!
- There I got TM40 Aerial Ace and battled a few trainers. I met a lv 11 Ekans, which I caught and named Kobsnak. It was Calm.

Check the previous edited update if you haven't! (I didn't want to make the previous post so long via editing, and I double post because of that, and so that people realise there's an update as well)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

That previous post was really long, hope you enjoyed and laughed reading my bad luck! Anyways, I've progressed a bit.

- I got to Route 10, and a Spearow was my encounter there, a lv 13 Spearow. I caught it and named it Piukiller (check the previous post to see why I give her this nickname...) It was Naughty.
- Healed my team in that great Pokémon Center, and beat the trainer there before entering the dark Rock Tunnel...
- Taught Flash to Biendicho and started exploring the cave.
- A lv 16 Mankey was my encounter inside the Rock Tunnel. I caught it. It is my last Mankey/Primeape because I had already met one at Route 22. I named it Ragey, and it was Impish.
- Puncher died! A Hiker's lv 25 Geodude killed it! My Puncher used Magnitude, but it was only Magnitude 4, and barely scratched the Geodude, while the foe's Magnitude, was Magnitude 9, and Puncher was OHKOed. Dreammm got rid of the Geodude easily after that.
- Now I am worried because Puncher resisted Seldestructs and Explosions, now, they may kill my Pokémon and I won't be able to do anything... I hope things to go better after this important loss...
- Dreammm has become my answer to Rock-types, as they have low Special Defense, Confusion destroys them. It's beginning to be much stronger than the rest of my team, though.
- Managed to exit the tunnel and get to the other side of Route 10. I saved here.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: I'll go on now!

- I easily beat the trainers at Route 10, the only problem was the PP of my Pokémon; Dreammm ran out of Confusion after beating the last Hiker.
- Got to Lavender Town and bought Super Balls. Won't be going to the Pokémon Tower yet, not until I get tid of the Ghosts.
- Left Puncher at the dead box... R.I.P. Won't train anyone else for now. I'll keep going with my Ascua, Dreammm and Fear. Just took Maul to have another Pickup Pokémon.
- Went to Route 12 to beat the Fishermen.
- Got TM27 Return and taught it to Fear; it should be happy: It hasn't fainted yet!
- Route 12 wasn't challenging and gave some neat experience to my team. Got to the Snorlax and backtracked to Lavender Town.
- Next place: Route 8. Really looking forward to teaching Charmeleon Flamethrower, because now he is the weakest Pokémon I have.
- My Route 8 encouter was a lv 19 Ekans, which I caught and named Solid. It was Jolly. It's my last Ekans/Arbok.
- Easily beat the trainers as they are a bit underleveled. Used Dreammm for the Koffings, being afraid of an explosion.
- Went through the Underground Path to reach Route 7.
- After a Pidgey and 3 Meowths, Pokémon I cannot catch, a lv 19 Oddish appeared. I caught it and named it Arbustillo. It is a wonderful Modest Oddish.
- Got to Celadon, where I got a Lv 25 Eevee which I called Bolt as it will evolve into Jolteon. It was Bold. I bought a Thunderstone, made it evolve, and taught it Shock Wave.
- Also got the Tea and the Coin Case at Celadon.
- Went to Route 16, where I met a lv 20 Spearow. I caught it and named it Misspiu. It was Sassy and it is my last Spearow. Beat that strong couple there thanks to Fear's Return, got HM02 Fly, and trained Bolt here and at Route 8.
- Paid a visit to Saffron City to get TM29 Psychic. Won't use it on Dreammm though, as it learns Psychic naturally at level 35.
- Time to go to the Game Corner. Picked a few coins, and then entered the hideout after beating the grunt.
- At last Ascua learned Flamethrower! Now it's much much better.
- I got to Giovanni and the battle wasn't especially tough. Dreammm easily beat Onix and Rhyhorn, and Fear managed to beat the Kanghaskan, although its Mega Punch, if it had been critical, would have killed Fear. Got the Silph Scope and Dreammm learned Psychic.
- Time to go to the Pokémon Tower now. Got back to Lavender and entered the tower.
- Getting used to easy battles against Gary (guess there will be hard ones later) Bolt destroyed Pidgeotto, Growlithe and Wartortle, Ascua, just needed to use an Ember against Exeggcute, and Fear got rid of the lv 20 Kadabra.
- I caught a lv 14 Gastly at the Pokémon Tower. It was Quirky. I remember Gengar being amazing from my Poison monotype, but I won't train Gastly, for now, I may need it later. I named it Jack.

I don't want to do too long posts, so, if nobody answers in this thread, I may triple, quadruple... post.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Let's keep going!

- Ascua easily dealt with the good amount of Channelers there were in the Pokémon Tower. Ascua evolved!
- Dreammm beat the Marowak using two Psychics.
- Raticate crushed the 3 Rocket Grunts. Met Mr. Fuji and got the Poké Flute.
- Before going to get my 4th badge, I went back to Route 12, and there I caught the lv 30 Snorlax. I called it Yawny. It was Naive. Won't use it for now, at least not until Fear dies.
- Time to go back to Celadon!
- The easiest Gym ever. Fear and especially Dreammm dealt with the trainers, and Charizard beat Erika in 3 turns. Got the Rainbow Badge.
- Went to Saffron City to fight in the Fighting Dojo. I won't be picking any of the two Fighting-types because I prefer Lapras.
- Dreammm easily destroyed the whole Dojo.
- Time to go to Route 12! Got the Super Rod and beat the remaining trainers.
- Got to Route 13. A lv 24 Venonat was my encouter here. I caught it and named it Antena. It was Brave...
- Beat all the trainers in that labyrinth without trouble and reached Route 14.
- Another lv 24 Venonat was my encounter here, I caught it and went on beating trainers. The Venonat was Careful. Found TM18 Rain Dance as well.

EDIT: Let's go on! Things will now become more and more complicated, I hope to stand it.

- Got to Fuchsia City. Got the Good Rod there, and fished using the Super Rod. A lv 24 Goldeen appeared. I caught it and named it Reddy. It was Adamant.
- Went to Route 19 and beat the two Swimmers.
- Taught Ascua Fly and went back to Celadon to go to the Cycling Road. Beat the Snorlax at Route 16 to get to it.
- Battled all the trainers, mainly using Dreammm and Ascua, as I was afraid of possible Selfdestructs or Explosions from the Weezings.
- A lv 24 Doduo was my encounter at Route 17. I caught it and named Avestruzo. It was Impish.
- Eventually reached Route 18, where I met another Doduo, and my fifth lv 24 Pokémon in a row. I caught it and named it Cabezas. It was Rash. It is both stronger and faster than the previous one, so if I need to train a Doduo, I'd train Cabezas before Avestruzo.
- Time to go to the Safari Zone.
- A wonderful lv 25 Kanghaskan was my encounter there, but sadly it fled... (I caught a Paras unwillingly, pressing A after meeting it, and catching it, but I'll release it as soon as I get to the PC).
- Found the Gold Teeth, and got HM03 Surf. Got HM04 at Fuchsia City after that. Taught Strength to Fear, and Surf to Yawny. Time to try beating Koga!
- Easily beat the Psychic-types at Koga's Gym. Koga was the next.
- It wasn't a hard battle, thanks to Dreammm. It beat his whole team in one Psychic except for Muk, who was beaten by 2 Raticate's Returns. Got the fifth badge without losses.
- Now I can Surf, so it's time to do a few things before going on.
- Went to Route 12 to find an item. Flew to the Rock Tunnel, and went to the Power Plant, which I explored without battling Zapdos, of course.
- A lv 22 Magnemite was my encounter there. I caught it and named it Dragmag. It was Quiet.
- Went to Celadon City to explore the other part of Route 4 and beat that trainer. Fished a Horsea at Celadon, which I caught and named Dragoon. It was at lv 22, and it was Hardy.
- Went to Pewter City to get the Old Amber.
- Went back to Route 19, this time with Surf, to explore it properly. A lv 10 Tentacool was my encounter here. I caught it and named it Medusa, it was Timid.
- The trainers were really easy, as even Ascua could beat them. Got to Route 20.
- I managed to get out of the water without meeting a single Pokémon, so I fished, and met another lv 22 Horsea, which I caught and named Seam. It was Hasty.
- I entered Seafoam Islands, and there I met a lv 29 Psyduck. I caught it and named it Tonto. It was Naughty. I finished the maze there and got to Articuno (without challenging it), picked up the items, and went out at the other side of Route 20.
- Got to Cinnabar Island after easily beating the trainers at Route 20. Revived the Aerodactyl fossil, and now I have it. I named it Ancient, and sadly, it was Bold.
- Went to Pallet Town and began exploring Route 21. I failed to catch a Tangela here due to a critical Double Kick... Anyways, got some good experience in this Route for my team, and after getting to Cinnabar Island again, I went back to Saffron City, where Team Rocket must be beaten!
- Got to Silph Co. and began beating grunts. Eventually found the Card Key. Kepto on beating trainers while opening all the doors and finding items.
- Finally went to battle Gary. Gary has become quite stronger, but I am much stronger too. His Pidgeot fell to a Shock Wave from Bolt, Dreammm easily beat Growlithe using Psychic, Bolt 2HKOed Blastoise with Shock Wave, Exeggcute was a joke for Ascua, and Fear outsped and easily KOed the Alakazam with its strong Return.
- Got the Lapras! I named it Shellhorn. It was Hasty. After that, I went to face Giovanni.
- After beating the last grunt, I began my battle against Giovanni. Bolt took care of the Nidorino, Dreammm beat Nidoqueen in two Psychics and destroyed Rhyhorn in one Psychic as well. Finally, Fear 2HKOed Kanghaskan using Return. I got the Master Ball. Time to stop for today.

- Ascua died!! It was maybe my best Pokémon... Saving Flamethrowers, I used Fly against one of the Gym's trainers, a Channeler with a Gastly, and it... used Destiny Bond, killing Ascua... R.I.P. Ascua, things have begun badly today...
- Got to Sabrina. Fear easily OHKOed Kadabra, Mr. Mime, and Alakazam using Return, and Dreammm crushed Venomoth using Psychic. It was a really easy battle and I got the badge. I am still sad becau
se of the loss I've had...
- I added Cabezas to my team and began training it.
- Got TM24 at the Game Corner for Bolt.
- Cabezas evolved at lv 31!

Thanks, let's see if Dodrio works, but Charizard was indeed very important, and its Flamethrower was amazing... Also, thanks again as I won't have to do 5 posts in a row now!

Well, let's continue where we left it.

- The first thing that showed that type of diary there is in Pokémon FireRed was that I left Ascua in the Dead box... Snif. My team'll have to do an effort now without my best Pokémon.
- Flied to Cinnabar Island and entered the Pokémon Mansion, a dangerous place, I hope not to lose anyone here...
- A lv 28 Koffing was my encounter here. I caught it and named it Boom. It was Mild.
- Noticed all my moves are ineffective against Magnemite and Magneton now...
- In the end found the Secret Key, and TM14 and TM22. Escaped using a Escape Rope. Time to go to the gym. I don't have super effective moves against it because Puncher died, but my Pokémon are at a good level, so let's see if I can deal with it.
- Went beating the trainers, failing the questions on purpose.
- I got to Blaine. Bolt destroyed Growlithe using Thunderbolt, Ponyta was OHKOed by Cabezas' Tri Attack, and so was Rapidash. Finally, I was lucky, and Dreammm scored a critical hit on Arcanine with Psychic, beating it. Got the Volcano Badge.
- Went with Bill to One Island.
- After being asked to go to Two Island, I went to explore the One Island first.
- A lv 34 Ponyta was my encounter at the Kindle Road. I caught it and named it Wind. I don't know the nature yet because the PC isn't working.
- Got HM06 and taught it to Fear.
- In the end I got to Mt. Ember, where I won't battle Moltres, as I won't have legendaries in this challenge (Moltres would have been the perfect replacement for Ascua, but anyways...)
- I caught a lv 33 Geodude at Mt. Ember. I named it Puncheter.
- I took the Cave part of Mt. Ember as a different place because the Pokémon that appear there are much different. I caught a lv 40 Machoke, which I named Cachas.
- Got to where Moltres is but didn't challenge the legendary bird.
- Arrived at Two Island.
- Cape Brink... Let's see what I find here!
- A lv 36 Gloom. I caught it and named it Peste.
- Now I have to go to Three Island to find Lostelle. *sigh*
- The Kanto Rider Federation began being annoying... Well, let's go on.
- Fought the Biker Goons, using Dreammm, and beating them easily.
- I was told to look for Lostelle at the Berry Forest, where there are ghosts... Got to the Bond Bridge. A lv 31 Psyduck was my encounter here, but I failed to catch it...
- I got to the Berry Forest. A lv 35 Exeggcute was my encounter here. I caught it and named it Edgey.
- A Hypno was scaring Lostelle. Dreammm, how can you...? Oh, wait, it isn't you, it's just a weak lv 30 Hypno. Fear got rid of it.
- After rescuing Lostelle, I handed the Meteorite to her father, and got a Moon Stone.
- PCs are working now! Let's see... Wind was Mild, Puncheter Lonely, Cachas Lax, Peste Quirky, and Edgey Hardy. Let's go to see Bill again.
- Back at Cinnabar Island, now it's time to go to Viridian and fight Giovanni for the last time.
- I don't want to get to the E4 with just 4 Pokémon, so I guess I'll have to train 2 more to have a Full team. Lapras will be one of them, and then maybe Jack, maybe Molish, maybe Edgey, maybe Cachas, maybe Puncheter... We'll see.

No one posts here very often, I might start posting my Emerald Nuzlocke again after I finish my summer homework.

Let's see what happens today...

- To get the Exp. Share, and train weak Pokémon easier, I need to own 50 Pokémon, and I own 40, so I've begun evolving some of my boxed Pokémon. Spupa and Gafe evolved into Butterfree and Beedrill, respectively, Misspiu and Tonto also evolved, and so did Solid.
- Peste evolved into Vileplume, that makes 47, and Edgey evolved into Exeggutor after learning Sleep Powder.
- Molish died because of a big big mistake!! I was going to train it and get it to evolve into Dugtrio, and, after running into a lv 36 Featow, instead of pressing Pokémon, I pressed Run, I couldn't escape, and the Fearow's Fury Attack killed Molish... I am so sorry Molish, rest in peace... You were Jolly, I was even considering training you because of that... That won't be possible now.
- Krapp is now an amazing Gyarados, one more, and I'll have 50!
- Jack completes this task, evolving into Haunter. I got the Exp. Share. Also got the Itemfinder. Gave the Exp. Share to Shellhorn, and kept going in the game.
- Flied to Viridian, and entered Giovanni's Gym.
- I beat the trainers, their Pokémon were bulky, but didn't do many damage to my team. I got to Giovanni.
- I risked and used Shellhorn in this battle, and it worked as it dealt with the 2 Rhyhorns easily using Surf. Dreammm destroyed Nidoqueen with Psychic, Dugtrio was really easy for Fear, and Fear also 2HKOed the Nidoking with Return. I got my last badge.
- Healed my team and went to face Gary at Route 22. Bolt used Thunderbolt against the Pidgeot, destroying it. Shellhorn beat the Rhyhorn and the Growlithe using Surf, Cabezas dealt with Exeggcute, luckily Fear outsped and koed the Alakazam using Return, and Blastoise lost to Bolt. Time to save and stop playing for now.

EDIT: Let's go on where I left it.

- Entered Route 23, and began showing my badges to get going.
- I couldn't catch anything in the grass, so I fished a Poliwhirl. It was lv 26, and I caught it and named it Espiral. It was Mild.
- Got to the Victory Road... A lv 46 Onix was my encounter here. I caught it and named it Brocker. It was, like Puncher, Calm, a bad nature...
- The Victory Road is long, and the trainers have a lot of Pokémon. I went on exploring it and beating the trainers, getting experience for Shellhorn.
- Finally got to the Indigo Plateau. Many preparations must be done before attempting to challenge the E4. Got a Mystic Water at Celadon, and used Thief to get a Twistedspoon for Dreammm. Also got another TM24 for Shellhorn.
- Found out I had never been to Treasure Beach, so I went there.
- I caught a lv 33 Tangela there. I named it Enredo and it was Quiet.
- I noticed I hadn't caught anything at One Island either. I caught a lv 18 Gyarados. I named it Groar and it was, like the other Gyarados I own, Adamant.
- I caught a Poliwag at Viridian City. It was at lv 18 and I named it Polis. It was Naughty.
- After uncountable Fearows, I managed to get a Sharp Beak! I gave it to Cabezas.
- I'll train my whole team up to lv 59-60 before attempting to beat the E4. But I only have 5 Pokémon... Of the Pokémon I have, who would you train? I'll gladly take any advice on this.

In this part I'll battle the E4. I hope to be lucky...

- Have been training Shellhorn, now it has reached its partner. I think I'll try beating the E4 with 5 Pokémon, because training one more can be tedious, I had enough with Shellhorn and Cabezas.
- Ok, finished training. I hope lv 58 for everything is enough, Gary is a bit stronger than that, but I'll try getting past it with what I have.
- Lorelei was first. Bolt Koed the Dewgong, the Cloyster, the Slowbro, and the Lapras using Thunderbolt, all of them in 1 hit, except for Lapras. Finally, Fear OHKOed the Jynx using Return, making use of its horrible Defense (Jynx... One of my favourite Pokémon to use in NU... I know her well...)
- Bruno was next. The battle lasted for 5 turns. Shellhorn destroyed the two Onix using Surf, and Cabezas Sharp Beak-boosted Drill Pecks were enough to handle the Hitmons and Machamp.
- Dreammm time against Agatha! Or so I thought, because luck wasn't with me. The fitst Gengar used Double Team 6 times, and Psychic missed 6 times (how lucky is that?) I had to use Bolt for hitting the first Gengar reliably with Shock Wave, but it didn't do much damage. It poisoned and confused me using Toxic and Confuse Ray, so I needed a Full Restore. Shock Wave didn't 2HKO, so she healed the Gengar as well, but after that 2 Shock Waves were enough. Uff, what a nightmare of a Gengar, I hate Double Team. Dreammm managed to beat the Golbat after being confused, Arbok came. I healed Dreammm, took a Sludge Bomb, and destroyed the Arbok with Psychic. Bolt easily dealt with the other Gengar, as it uses Sludge Bomb, which is physical in FRLG, and Bolt 2HKOed it with Thunderbolt. Finally, Cabezas destroyed the Haunter using Drill Peck. Phew, what an annoying battle.
- Lance was the final E4 battle. I used Shellhorn's amazing coverage in this battle. The Gyarados fell to a Thunderbolt, the Aerodactyl hit me with AncientPower, but it left Shellhorn with 130/226 HP, and then Surf, well, it didn't ko, but it was close. Lance used a Full Restore, but then my next Surf was stronger and took down the Aerodactyl. The 2 Dragonair are weak and were beaten by Ice Beam, and so was Dragonite.
- Gary... You again, we've battled many times and... ˇyou'll bite the dust again! Bolt, as always dealt with the Pidgeot, and Shellhorn with the Rhydon. Cabezas 2HKOed the Exeggutor using Drill Peck (Gary used 2 Full Restores on the Exeggutor before, and hit my Cabezas with Egg Bomb, but it wasn't that strong). Alakazam also fell to Drill Peck (luckily I was faster), I beat the Arcanine using Shellhorn's Surf. It happened the same thing that happened with Aerodactyl, the first Surf was not enough, but after a Full Restore, Surf crushed it. Finally, Bolt, who knows Gary's Pidgeot and Blastoise really well, took care of Blastoise with 2 Thunderbolts.

YESSS!! I'VE BEATEN THE POKÉMON LEAGUE WITHOUT LOSSES!

- I don't take the game as finished yet, as I will explore the 7 islands, and depending on my team's level, I'll do the E4 rematches or not. But now I think the Islands will be much easier than the E4.

Check the last update if you haven't as it tells how I beat the E4 and Gary!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Now, to get the National Dex, I need to own 60 Pokémon... I have 54 by now.
- I used my Water Stone and evolved Espiral.
- Next, I took my Dragmag from the Daycare, and it was already lv 34. I evolved it.
- Then I began training some of my boxed Pokémon against the Fighting-type trainers at One Island, using the Exp. Share. That way, Dragoon, Eyey, Wind and Reddy evolved, and now I have 60 Pokémon. Time to get the National Dex.

I challenge you to do a EverLocke for 3rd gen!

What is an EverLocke Challenge?

An EverLocke challenge is a variation of the famous Nuzlocke challenge. It follows some of the same guidelines with a twist; all your pokemon must hold an everstone if possible!

EverLocke Challenge Rules


Please read the Challenge Forum rules before posting.
You can only use the first Pokemon you encounter in each route/town/city/cave.
All Pokemon must be nicknamed.
If any Pokemon faints, it is considered dead and cannot battle anymore. You must then release it or place it in your PC Box.
Every Pokemon you catch CANNOT be evolved and must have an everstone as a held item at all times
For every gym leader that you defeat you are allowed ONE evolution. Choose your evolutions wisely.
Once a pokemon you have reaches its final evolution, you may remove the everstone and replace it with an item of your choice.
If you do not have more then one everstone, you must press 'B' to stop the evolution at every time.
If you wish to use any other restrictions, please specify them in the first post you make in this thread for your challenge.

A Nuzlocke Newbie here, but I'm going to try my hand at it on Emerald. I'm not going to make it overly difficult as its my first one, but also I'm not just going to have the first two rules as I know Emerald quite well and I'm a naturally cautious player anyway. Here are my rules:

1. When a Pokemon faints, it is considered dead. I cannot do anything with it, except put it in a Death Box in my PC. I can't use it for trades or anything like that. I can't revive it, it is dead.
2. I must nickname all of my Pokemon.
3. I will catch the first Pokemon I see on every route/city, but if I don't like it I can bench it and use it at a later date to replace a fallen comrade. However, I must use my starter.
4. If I accidentally kill the first Pokemon from a certain area, I can't capture a new one, I've lost my opportunity to capture a Pokemon from that area.
5. If the first Pokemon on a route is one I have caught before, then it doesn't count and the first Pokemon for that route is the first one I see that I haven't caught before. If a Pokemon from a previous route dies and I encounter it again first, I still cannot capture it.
6. If I have visited the route before I receive Pokeballs, I can still return to that Route and catch a Pokemon.
7. I can use repels but not until I have encountered my first Pokemon in that area.
8. I can use healing items in battle.
9. To determine what starter I pick, I will look at my Trainer ID. If my ID ends in 1, 4 or 7, I must pick Treecko. If it ends in 2, 5 or 8, I must pick Torchic. If it ends in a 3, 6 or 9, I must pick Mudkip. If it ends in a 0, I get free reign over which starter I pick.
10. If I white out at any point in the game, it is considered a Game Over, even if I have Pokemon still remaining on the bench.
11. The game ends when either I run out of Pokemon and Benched Pokemon, white out or defeat Wallace at the Pokemon League.
12. There are no Pokemon Centre restrictions (Its my first run!)
13. If I see a shiny in the wild, I reserve the right to catch it. However, I can't use it in my team unless it was the first Pokemon found in the route/city. If it wasn't the first found, it must be permanently boxed until the end of the challenge.

I'm quite nervous actually! Here I go! I've started, called myself Locke (Get it?) and Trainer ID is... 65522, which means I get Torchic! Yay! I did all the boring side-quest stuff, picked... Torchic of course! :)
And saved Prof. Birch from the Poochyena. I nicknamed Torchic Sarge and trained Sarge to Lv8 before taking on May. I was taking no chances. I beat May comfortably, went back to Littleroot and picked up Pokeballs. I went north to Route 101 and the first pokemon was a... Poochyena! Which I caught and promptly named Travis. I've just healed and I'm about to train Travis as I haven't used a Poochyena in a while...

Well, now I have 60 Pokémon, so now I can go to the other islands as well.

- One Island again! Now I have to find the gems... I spoke to Celio, and was told to look for them in One Island.
- Got to Mt. Ember, where I met Team Rocket once again. What are their plans here? I battled them (lv 37 and 35, seriously?)
- I got to another part of Mt. Ember, which I consider to be a different place. I caught a lv 24 Slugma here. I named it God. It was Naive.
- In the end I found the Ruby and gave it to Helio. He gave me the Rainbow Pass.
- I got to the Four Island, where I found Gary. A lv 12 Wooper was my encounter in this island. I caught it and named it Upah. It was Quirky.
- Went to the Icefall Cave, where I caught a lv 45 Seel and named it Foca. It was Calm.
- Found a Nevermeltice, and, more importantly, HM07 Waterfall. Had to teach it to Shellhorn.
- Using Waterfall, I found Lorelei facing a few Rocket grunts. "So despicably weak". Now I kow where their hideout is: In the Five Island. Time to go there!
- There I caught a lv 12 Hoppip, which I named Jumpy and was Adamant. Went to the Water Labyrinth.
- Another lv 12 Hoppip was my encounter here. I caught it and named it Saltarin. It was Impish. Also recieved an Egg.
- Got to the Resort Gorgeous, where I caught a lv 17 Qwilfish and named it Pinchi. It was Bashful.

Thank you Swoobat, much appreciated. :)

Well a quick update. Travis was trained without too much issue and I decided to see what Pokemon I'd get from Route 103 and 102. On Route 103, the first four or five Pokemon were Poochyena, which I already had and so I caught the fifth Pokemon to appear... Wingull! Which I promptly named Zazu (Yeah it sucks but I'm sure I'll grow to like it!) and then I went to Route 102 where the first pokemon was sadly Wurmple (nicknamed Rafa). :( I was hoping for Lotad or if I was really lucky a Ralts. After training everyone to Lv10, Rafa evolved twice into the Dustox line! I headed to Petalburg and did the Wally side-quest and decided to update!

1. When a Pokemon faints, it is considered dead. I cannot do anything with it, except put it in a Death Box in my PC. I can't use it for trades or anything like that. I can't revive it, it is dead.
2. I must nickname all of my Pokemon.
3. I will catch the first Pokemon I see on every route/city, but if I don't like it I can bench it and use it at a later date to replace a fallen comrade. However, I must use my starter.
4. If I accidentally kill the first Pokemon from a certain area, I can't capture a new one, I've lost my opportunity to capture a Pokemon from that area.
5. If the first Pokemon on a route is one I have caught before, then it doesn't count and the first Pokemon for that route is the first one I see that I haven't caught before. If a Pokemon from a previous route dies and I encounter it again first, I still cannot capture it.
6. If I have visited the route before I receive Pokeballs, I can still return to that Route and catch a Pokemon.
7. I can use repels but not until I have encountered my first Pokemon in that area.
8. I can use healing items in battle.
9. To determine what starter I pick, I will look at my Trainer ID. If my ID ends in 1, 4 or 7, I must pick Treecko. If it ends in 2, 5 or 8, I must pick Torchic. If it ends in a 3, 6 or 9, I must pick Mudkip. If it ends in a 0, I get free reign over which starter I pick.
10. If I white out at any point in the game, it is considered a Game Over, even if I have Pokemon still remaining on the bench.
11. The game ends when either I run out of Pokemon and Benched Pokemon, white out or defeat Wallace at the Pokemon League.
12. There are no Pokemon Centre restrictions (Its my first run!)
13. If I see a shiny in the wild, I reserve the right to catch it. However, I can't use it in my team unless it was the first Pokemon found in the route/city. If it wasn't the first found, it must be permanently boxed until the end of the challenge.

I'll probably wait before the next update, Its a lot to write! Not sure if I'll keep many of them long term. Rafa probably not and Zazu depends on whether I get a Taillow in Route 104...

Good luck to everyone doing a Nuzlocke! :)

Ups, an Adamant Wingull, sorry about that, well, a Wingull proved to be very important in my Emerald nuzlocke, but mine had a better nature.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, let's keep on exploring the islands. (I lost progress, it seems I forgot to save, so I'll have to redo this part).

- Got to the Lost Cave. There I caught a v 52 Haunter, and named it Jeje. It was... Modest!
- Found and beat Lady Selphy in the cave.
- Went to the Five Island Meadow, where I met and caught a lv 15 Sentret. I named it Cutey and it was Modest.
- I beat the Rockets, but now I need a second password to enter the warehouse. Six Island is my next destiny.
- In the Water Path I ran into another Sentret, a lv 10 one. I caught it and named it Cuqui, and it was Lax.

It's currently 12:21 AM and I'm bored, time to start up a Leaf Green Nuzlocke Challenge :D

Da Rules:
- Pokemon faints it's considered Dead and must be released.
- Can only catch the first Pokemon in each area.
- Must nickname all Pokemon.

Exceptions:
- Areas don't count until I've received the Pokedex and Pokeballs.
- Not following the duplicate clause(meaning I'm allowed to catch the same Pokemon even if I've already caught it in a different route.)
- I can catch shinies, but I'm not allowed to use them.(Extremely rare but has actually happened before.)
- The Safari Zone/Game Corner, I will only be able to catch/buy one Pokemon only.
- I can catch the first Snorlax regardless if I've caught/fainted the first Pokemon in that area. I'm counting them separate, I'll than be unable to catch the second one regardless.

I've decided to choose a different starter since I've always gone with Charmander, so I'll be choosing Squirtle as my starter.[Fun fact about me, in my history of playing R/B/Y and Leaf Green I have chosen Bulbasaur only twice and Squirtle only three times(now four).]

I gave Squirtle the nickname Tortuga the Spanish word for Turtle. It's nature is Mild. I always hate the in-game tutorials, I've been playing this series for 15+ years now. I'm pretty sure I know all the basics :)
Anyways I beat my Rival Blue, it would really suck to lose to him right at the start. Some of you might be saying How could you lose? Two words Critical-hit! Don't believe me, well Swoobat knows, btw sorry about that dude it happens :(
After I delivered Oak's package and receive my Pokedex and Pokeballs this Nuzlocke challenge has officially started. An on Route 1 I actually managed to get through it without a single wild battle...aside from that I went back and caught a lv 3 Pidgey with Hasty nature that I named Jack.


;007; Tortuga Lv 5-7
;016; Jack Lv 3

It's late now I'll post....later today after I've gotten some sleep lol.

I made it to Viridian City again and went straight to Route 22 to catch another team member. Was kind of hopping for a Mankey but I find a Rattata Lv 3 and nicknamed it Kate. I then headed to Route 2, there's a rare chance of getting a nidoran I hate how they changed that. I found another Rattata Lv 4 and nicknamed it Smith, an since I'm not following the duplicate clause so I'm allowed to catch it. I went ahead back to Route 22 and started to grind just a few levels to face my Rival. When I fought him I nearly lost Tortuga because of stupid Sand-Attack, I missed three times in a row MOST ANNOYING MOVE EVER!
When I beat him I decided to prepare for Viridian Forest meaning buy tons of antidotes. The first Pokemon I found in the Viridian Forest was a Weedle Lv 4 which I nicknamed Buzz. Jack learned Gust which made this area a whole lot easier for me. I did the whole let Buzz go first then switch so it'll gain exp and didn't take long for it to level up to 7 and evolve. I made it to Pewter City and since I have Tortuga the gym is going to be a piece of cake. Well I took on Brock and I was too cocky switching back and fourth between Buzz and Tortuga to level it up and evolve. Brock's Onix brought my Squirtle down to 1 Hp but luckily Onix isn't faster and I beat him by blowing bubbles. Both Buzz and Tortuga leveled up to 10 and 11 meaning Buzz evolved into Beedrill. Now it's time to head to Route 3 and just before I leave Pewter City Professor Oak's aid gives me the Running Shoes, Yeeessssssssssss.

You're right Zyon, it happens, two crits after a Tail Whip beat my Charmander before. I should have used the Potion after the first critical hit, but I didn't expect two in a row.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, let's explore the Six Island today.

- Decided to explore the north part first. Got to the Green Path and then to the Pattern Bush.
- A lv 9 Kakuna was my encounter here... ˇTHANKS, LADY LUCK! And I needed 3 Ultra Balls to catch it. I named it Unwanted and it was Modest. Now it's even more unwanted. I beat all the trainers here and got to the other side of the Green Path.
- Here I caught a Mild lv 18 Tentacool. I named it Picar. Got to the Outcast Island.
- Entered the Altering Cave and there I caught a lv 12 Zubat. It was Calm. I named it Cruelbat, like the Crobat that got to the end of my Emerald nuzlocke. (I can't believe I met my first Zubat/Golbat this far...)
- Now I explored the south part of the island. I got to the Ruin Valley, where I caught a lv 15 Natu. I named it Magic and it was Naughty. (I am losing imagination, I can't think of original nicknames...)
- Entered the Dotted Hole using Cut.
- Got to the Sapphire, but an annoying scientist took it... He told me the 2nd password for the Rocket hideout though.
- Now I'll explore the Seven Island, and after that I'll beat the Rockets.

Right people, I’ve got my first gym badge and my team are motoring on nicely! Anyway, my first step was to go and find my first Pokemon in Route 104. The first two or three were either Wurmple or Poochyena, but fourth up was Taillow – Get in! (Swellow is one of my favourite Pokemon) After naming him Pecks, I trained him up and had a very nervous moment when he was on 1HP! Luckily he survived and I defeated the Route 104 trainers and went into Petalburg Woods where I found the second Pokemon (the first was a Wurmple) – Shroomish, another one of my favourites :) which I named Peanut (After my favourite Animal Crossing villager) and trained her up on a par with Pokemon. I swept through Petalburg Woods and defeated the Team Aqua grunt before going out back onto Route 104. I’d already caught a Pokemon here so I motored onwards to Rustboro City where I promptly benched Travis and Rafa, who I didn’t need for now. I swept Rustoboro gym, trained my team up to Level 16, where Sarge evolved! And I headed for the gym... Roxanne luckily didn’t pose much of a threat to me. Zazu took out the first Geodude with Water Gun, the second Geodude was taken out with Mega Drain, before I sent out Sarge against Nosepass. Nosepass tried to use Rock Tomb, but Sarge was too strong with Double Kick and though Roxanne healed twice, I still prevailed to live another day!

BTW: I’m adding a new rule regarding shines. This is something I've just thought of and hasn't happened to me yet! If I see a shiny in the wild, I reserve the right to catch it. However, I can't use it in my team unless it was the first Pokemon found in the route/city. If it wasn't the first found, it must be permanently boxed until the end of the challenge.
I'll go back and edit it in the previous updates! :)

1. When a Pokemon faints, it is considered dead. I cannot do anything with it, except put it in a Death Box in my PC. I can't use it for trades or anything like that. I can't revive it, it is dead.
2. I must nickname all of my Pokemon.
3. I will catch the first Pokemon I see on every route/city, but if I don't like it I can bench it and use it at a later date to replace a fallen comrade. However, I must use my starter.
4. If I accidentally kill the first Pokemon from a certain area, I can't capture a new one, I've lost my opportunity to capture a Pokemon from that area.
5. If the first Pokemon on a route is one I have caught before, then it doesn't count and the first Pokemon for that route is the first one I see that I haven't caught before. If a Pokemon from a previous route dies and I encounter it again first, I still cannot capture it.
6. If I have visited the route before I receive Pokeballs, I can still return to that Route and catch a Pokemon.
7. I can use repels but not until I have encountered my first Pokemon in that area.
8. I can use healing items in battle.
9. To determine what starter I pick, I will look at my Trainer ID. If my ID ends in 1, 4 or 7, I must pick Treecko. If it ends in 2, 5 or 8, I must pick Torchic. If it ends in a 3, 6 or 9, I must pick Mudkip. If it ends in a 0, I get free reign over which starter I pick.
10. If I white out at any point in the game, it is considered a Game Over, even if I have Pokemon still remaining on the bench.
11. The game ends when either I run out of Pokemon and Benched Pokemon, white out or defeat Wallace at the Pokemon League.
12. There are no Pokemon Centre restrictions (Its my first run!)
13. If I see a shiny in the wild, I reserve the right to catch it. However, I can't use it in my team unless it was the first Pokemon found in the route/city. If it wasn't the first found, it must be permanently boxed until the end of the challenge.

OK, I'll probably update after Brawly. Tbh, I'm not sure if I'll catch any Pokemon for the long term before then but it depends on who I catch. Its going well so far, no casualties as of yet and I hope it stays that way!

Well, this quest is reaching its end...

- Got to the Seven Island and went North first, reaching the Trainer Tower.
- Just beat the 2 Psychics there.
- Now, south to the Canyon Entrance.
- There I caught a lv 10 Phanpy. I named it Trompa and it was Naughty.
- Got to the Seavault Canyon, where I caught a lv 15 Phanpy. I named it Elef and it was Adamant.
- Solved the Tanoby Key puzzle and went on exploring the Seavault Canyon beating the remaining trainers.
- Danced the Chansey Dance and then got to the Tanoby Ruins. I caught a lv 25 Unown in one of the Chambers and named it Unknown. It was Naive.
- The Rocket Hideout awaits me!
- Got to the hideout after passing by the already beaten grunts.
- Began battling the grunts. Found TM36 Sludge Bomb.
- Dreammm took care of the first Admin using Psychic, and now it's time to deal with the hardest trainer in the islands.
- Tough? Not at all! Shellhorn took Golbat and Houndoom down with Ice Beam and Surf, respectively, and Weezing fell to Dreammm's Psychic.
- A scientist is left. Fear dealt with the Voltorb, the Electrode and the Porygon, and Shellhorn destroyed Magnemite and Magneton with Surf. Finally got the Sapphire.
- Gave the Sapphire to Celio. His machine works now!
- Cerulean Cave is now available! I'll explore it...
- A lv 61 Ditto was my encounter there. I caught it and named it Pinky. It was Hasty. Got to Mewtwo after getting all the items, but didn't fight it.

I think I can say the challenge is over. Gary's best Pokémon is at lv 75, and to reach those levels I'd have to grind a lot. Thanks all of you that read through the whole thing, I've enjoyed this nuzlocke a lot, although I expected more losses, things went better than I expected.

I can't believe a Raticate I caught at the first Route endured the whole game without fainting. It was much weaker than Dodrio, but it could beat trainers, and its Return was amazing. Lapras is a great Pokémon to have, it's better than Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan as a Saffron encouter in my opinion. Jolteon is fast and strong, making it a very nice Pokémon. Hypno is amazing for a nuzlocke as it's quite bulky and learns Psychic really early in case you don't want to spend the TM. Besides, it's also very common, easy to get. Dodrio proved to be very useful and replaced Charizard quite nicely, as its Drill Peck hurts a lot. And I can't forget Meowth. Its Pickup ability and compatibility with some HMs made it quite good to have. Pickup gave me a ton useful items, and some Nuggets as well.

Well, it's over. I've written quite a bit these days, and played a lot. I hope you enjoyed reading my progress, I am not a good writer, that I know (English isn't even my first language and that may make me sound repetitive sometimes), but I did my best in trying to express myself and telling you how things went. Thanks for reading those who did, and expect to see me in this forums soon, as this hasn't been my last challenge.

EDIT: Oh, well, in the end I tried beating the E4 again, with the rules intact, but considering the challenge as finished; I mean, if I were to lose, it doesn't matter, this nuzlocke is a success whether I lose the rematches or not. If I had taken this seriously I would have grinded for this, just I wanted to see how my team would perform against these overleveled trainers. I surprisingly got to Gary, but without Cabezas and Dreammm, and Heracross destroyed Shellhorn, Fear and Bolt. Well, Shellhorn managed to beat the Heracross in the end, but Shellhorn was so low in health that Tyranitar's Sandstorm killed it immediately. If I had had Cabezas, it would have been possible, but it fell to Agatha's Gengar. Dreammm fell to Lance's Kingdra, a critical Surf killed it. But as I said, this doesn't count, as I didn't even prepare for it, the nuzlocke is a success.

-On Route 3 I was too stubborn to switch and Kate died by a Pidgey's Gust
-On Route 3 I found another Pidgey but decided not to catch it.
-I went into Mt. Moon and found a Zubat however Smith just had to get a Crit. So no Pokemon for this area :(
-About halfway through Mt. Moon Tortuga evolves into Wartortle.
-I made it to the last Team Rocket grunt and Jack was already half Hp but got destroyed by a Rattat's Hyper Fang. I wasn't paying much attention so it caught me by surprise.
-So since my other Pokemon except Tortuga were low on Hp I just went ahead and let Tortuga lead just to play it safe.
-When I beat the Super nerd I chose the Dome fossil. I'll go back and get the Old Amber and decided later which fossil I want to use.
-I made it out of Mt. Moon and just for the lolz I taught Tortuga Mega Kick.
-After depositing Jack in my death box I go back to Route 4 to look for a new team member.
-I found a Lv 8 Spearow that I named Jake, with Relaxed nature.
-Now it's time to grind a little for the battle against our Rival.

;021; Jake Lv 8

;019; Kate Lv 3-7, Died Route 3 to Pidgey's Gust
;016; Jack Lv 3-14, Died Mt. Moon to Rattata's Hyper Fang

When dealing with duplicate Pokemon, since it's my choice if I want to catch it again or not when I already have one active(team) or on standby(PC). If I choose to not catch it again I'll allow myself to catch the next Pokemon that appears which then I'll follow the old rule of catching a pokemon meaning if it's the same again or one that I already have that's not dead I won't get anything in that area.
*My rules will be updated and posted on my next post.*

-Went to face Misty to get my 2nd gym badge, but man her Starmie was so annoying. Paralyzed it with Isabel and switched to Tortuga kept using Bite since it's super-effective and it kept using Recover. Finally got it to the red and Misty uses a Super Potion. After it couldn't move because of Para hax and then flinching I finally was able to beat it.

8th September 2013, 6:03 AM
Slightly large update this time. Even though I only got 2 badges.

-Alright with Pokemon X&Y just around the corner this Nuzlocke Challenge is going into Super Speedy Mode(or as fast as I possibly can anyway :3). So expect a huge update this time.
-I quick go inside the Vermilion Gym and how lucky is this, right away the second trash can I look I find the key then right next to it I find the second one :)
-An Diglett completely owned Lt. Surge now moving on to Rock Tunnel.....so dark.
-I get back to Curelean City and trade in the bike voucher for a bike, faster travel baby.
-Before I head off to Route 9, 10, and Rock Tunnel I stock up on supplies. I just bought x99 Antidotes making the grand total of x106 I'm good till the end of time XD.
-I found another Rattata and Smith the powerhouse that he is destroyed it with a crit hit.
-While fighting the trainers on Route 9 DigDug evolved into Dugtrio
-Omg thank god for Tortuga's bulkyness it survived a switch in to a Geodude's Magnitude 9 with 10 hp. Why is it that I keep putting Tortuga in harms way like that @_@
-I found a Voltorb Lv 17 on Route 10 and nicknamed him John.
-I found a Mankey Lv 16 in Rock Tunnel and nicknamed her Mandy.
-I made it through Rock Tunnel with little trouble and got Tortuga some much needed levels. Soon it'll be a mighty Blastoise.
-Taking on Route 8 and I found a Lv 18 Pidgey and nicknamed him Walter.
-Just going through Route 8 beating every trainer and Jake evolves into Fearow.
-An I gave Jake Secret Power which is owning, great since he needs it. Could have gaven it to Smith but I see myself using Jake in the long run as my fly user.
-Made it through the Underground Path to Route 7 and found a Lv 22 Bellsprout and nicknamed it Brad.
-I made it into Celadon City one of my favorite places in Kanto. An just like everytime I play this game I go straight for Eevee.
-I'll be using Eevee either as a replacement for Tortuga if worse comes to worse I'll still have a good water Pokemon, or Jolteon for a great electric Pokemon.
-Anyways I got Eevee and nicknamed him Origin and possible will rename him alter on depending what I evolve him into.
-An I take on Celadon City Gym which should give Jake some nice exp.
-Jake ran out of Aerial Ace's and her Vileplume pratically paralyzed my whole team but I beat it and got the 4th gym badge.
-Now it's time to play the slots and reck Team Rocket's Hideout.
-I got a little screwed over by Giovanni by not paying attention.
-Isabel died to Kangaskhan's Mega Punch which sucks but I do have Brad another bellsprout.
-Jake died to Kangaskhan's Mega Punch I made a derp mistake but I could have beaten his Kangaskhan.
-Evin died to doduo's fury attack while I was trying to catch it.
-I found a Doduo Lv 20 route 16 nicknamed it twins.
-I found a Gastley Lv 15 inside Pokemon Tower and nicknamed it Jasmine.
-I've decided to seriously grind after losing both Isabel and Jake. While grinding Tortuga finally gained a level and evolved into Blastoise. Which is still the only Poke I have that's above Lv 30.
-I'm going through Pokemon Tower and Brad evolves into Weepinbell.
-I made it through the Pokemon Tower and saved Mr. Fuji, returned back to his house and I got the Poke flute.
-Went back to Route 16 and woke up Snorlax :D
-I managed to catch him by just throwing balls cause any attempt to lower it's hp or paralyze it, it'll just Rest. Lv 30 Snorlax on Route 16 nicknamed him Johnson, I'm happy :)
-I then went to the other Snorlax on Route 12 and had to kill it, makes me sad having to do so :'(
-I got the Super Rod and decided to fish on Route 12 to see what I could catch.
-An found a Gyarados but it killed it's self by using Trash and confusing it's self to death -_-
-On Route 13 I caught a Lv 2something Krabby
-On Route 14 John learned Selfdestruct....I hope I never have to use it.
-An I'm nearly there to Fushia City so many trainers, I'm wishing now that I went through Routes 16-18 instead.
-I managed to use a Repel and sneak past all the trainers on Route 14 an 15 so I can heal everyone up.
-Now that I'm all healed up and ready I head back to Route 14 and 15 to battle the trainers and hopefully catch two new members for my team.
-I found a Lv 15 Venonat on Route 15 and nicknamed him Randy.
-I decided to get some extra levels before I took on Koga, so I went up Routes 18, 17, and 16.
-Just battling along Route 17 when John finally evolves into Electrode. Finally John isn't such a Glass Cannon anymore.
-I freakn hate the Poison Pokemon Joh, Twins, and DigDug all were effected by Poison and had one heck of a time trying to open the menu. Nearly lost DigDug she had only 1 Hp left @_@
-On Route 16 Twins finally evolved into Dodrio, I'll be going to the name rater to change fer name to Triplets.
-After beating all the trainers on Routes 16, 17, and 18 I decided to go and face the fifth gym. I'm probably going to use Johnson and DigDug mainly since Johnson has Immunity that prevents poisoning, and DigDug for super-effecitve moves. To bad Koffing and Weezing has levitate -_-
-I'm realizing that I'm under leveled for this gym, I'm the same level as the trainers but I know Koga has a Lv 43 Weezing. While most of mine are 31, Johnson and DigDug are 34-35, an my highest level Poke is Tortuga at 37 :/
-Alright that had to be one of the hardest battles so far. Thank Arceus Johnson had Immunity he was able to take care of Koga's Koffing's, when he sent out Muk and started to set up Acid Armor and Minimize I go so lucky at getting Magnitude 9-10 with DigDug. In a previous Nuzlocke challenge his Muk sweeped through my entire team after doing those moves. His Weezing had to be the most annoying Pokemon. Johnson was to low on Hp so I had to switch out, it's Sludge was nearly one shoting my other Pokemon. Finally with Tortuga spamming Surf I thought I could win but Koga hyper potion not once but twice. Finally got it in the red again and used John to outspeed it since his Weezing was paralyzed and I won.
-Oh Arceus, I hope I'm more prepared when I face Sabrina @_@

Right everyone, sorry its taken so long but here is my third update. My time has been taken up recently playing a Scramble Challenge on Fire Red and work. So since, last time, I exited Roxanne's gym and saw the Aqua grunt flee northwards towards Route 116. I followed him and prepared for my first Pokemon there which was... Whismur. :( Aware that I was about to catch one in Risturf Tunnel, I didn't bother catching it and I moved on. My Pokemon didn't really struggle at all as I hunted down the Aqua Grunt, caught a Whismur inside Risturf Tunnel (Called Decibel), saved Peeko and retrieved the Devon Goods. The Devon President gave me the Pokenav and I headed south where I promptly ran into May. May was pretty easy, Zazu taking out her Torkoal with Water Gun and Peanut destroying Mudkip with Mega Drain.
Before going to Mr. Britney, I first benched Decibel as I've used an Exploud recently. Mr. Britney took me to Dewford City, where I picked up the Old Rod and fished on the coast to catch a... Tentacool (named Marino after a Tentacruel in my previous Ruby Water Mono-type). I wasn't sure whether or not to keep Marino, so I kept him in my party for the time being. Before checking out Dewford gym, I zipped to Granite Cave to find a Pokemon there which was... Makuhita (named Pulse). I wasn't too happy with it as I've used Hariyama loads in the past and I was hoping for a Geodude or Zubat tbh. Oh well. I did the Granite Cave quest in the dark (It really isn't hard to navigate is it?) and gave the letter to Steven. I taught Pecks TM47 - Steel Wing as a reward. I returned to Dewford and cleared out the gym of trainers with little difficulty and benched Pulse (I won't be using it unless I get desperate). After training my Pokemon to Lv20, I took on Brawley, who was pretty easy thankfully. Pecks took care of Meditite and Machop with Wing Attack and Zazu was able to comfortably beat Makuhita even though Brawley kept healing. I had got my second badge!
After this I met Mr. Britney and headed to Slateport, where I did the beach battles and rested up in Slateport. Team Aqua were at the museum of course, but they posed little threat to Sarge. :) With most of the Slateport events taken care of for now, I cautiously headed north to Route 110 where after finding a Poochyena first, my second Pokemon was... Gulpin! I was really happy as I hadn't trained one before. I nicknamed her Lera and trained her up to Lv21 on a par with the rest of my Pokemon. I decided to bench Zazu at this point as I had only really wanted him to take out Brawley but I may well pick him up in the future. I cleared out the trainers at the bottom of Route 110, on Route 103 and in the Trick House, during which Pecks reached Lv22 and evolved into Swellow! :D After healing up, I prepared to take on May. May wasn't too hard, but I opened with Peanut first (as I wasn't sure of her first Pokemon) When Lombre came out first, I switched to Lera who took him out with Sludge. I was a bit nervous when she sent out Marshtomp as he used Bide, but Peanut still 2HKOed him with Mega Drain. Finally Pecks comfortably beat Slugma with Wing Attack. Phew!

None! :D

1. When a Pokemon faints, it is considered dead. I cannot do anything with it, except put it in a Death Box in my PC. I can't use it for trades or anything like that. I can't revive it, it is dead.
2. I must nickname all of my Pokemon.
3. I will catch the first Pokemon I see on every route/city, but if I don't like it I can bench it and use it at a later date to replace a fallen comrade. However, I must use my starter.
4. If I accidentally kill the first Pokemon from a certain area, I can't capture a new one, I've lost my opportunity to capture a Pokemon from that area.
5. If the first Pokemon on a route is one I have caught before, then it doesn't count and the first Pokemon for that route is the first one I see that I haven't caught before. If a Pokemon from a previous route dies and I encounter it again first, I still cannot capture it.
6. If I have visited the route before I receive Pokeballs, I can still return to that Route and catch a Pokemon.
7. I can use repels but not until I have encountered my first Pokemon in that area.
8. I can use healing items in battle.
9. To determine what starter I pick, I will look at my Trainer ID. If my ID ends in 1, 4 or 7, I must pick Treecko. If it ends in 2, 5 or 8, I must pick Torchic. If it ends in a 3, 6 or 9, I must pick Mudkip. If it ends in a 0, I get free reign over which starter I pick.
10. If I white out at any point in the game, it is considered a Game Over, even if I have Pokemon still remaining on the bench.
11. The game ends when either I run out of Pokemon and Benched Pokemon, white out or defeat Wallace at the Pokemon League.
12. There are no Pokemon Centre restrictions (Its my first run!)
13. If I see a shiny in the wild, I reserve the right to catch it. However, I can't use it in my team unless it was the first Pokemon found in the route/city. If it wasn't the first found, it must be permanently boxed until the end of the challenge.

I'm stopping the Pokemon by Location Spoiler Box as its needless and you can just read my challenge. Right, its going well! Wattson should be OK with Sarge, but I'm a bit worried about Maxie and Flannery so I may start raising Marino just in case. Wattson will probably be too soon so I'll update after Maxie in all probability. Good luck to anyone doing Nuzlockes!

Oh guys, I'm distraught. I've lost my first Pokemon. :'( :(

I'll let you know what happened. From last time I headed northwards, defeating trainers, before healing up in Mauville, picking up the bike and heading to Route 117 and dumping Marino in the day care, so he could get levelled up for the upcoming Fire trainers. Here, sadly I made my first big mistake of the Nuzlocke. The first new Pokemon I saw was Oddish and unfortunately, I accidentally used Pecks' Wing Attack on it, so it fainted. :( Anyway, I trained my Pokemon up to Lv25 by clearing out Cycling Road and Wattson's gym. Peanut evolved in the process. :)

It was time to take on Wattson, which was a tough battle. Firstly, I sent out Sarge against Voltorb. He was able to defeat it with a mix of Ember and Double Kick but suffered a Thunder Wave to be paralyzed. I gambled on keeping Sarge out for Electrike and thankfully it paid off with him KOing Electrike with Double Kick. Thirdly was Magneton v Peanut and Peanut eased to the victory with a Mach Punch, but he also got paralyzed by Thunder Wave in the process. Manectric is where it started to get difficult. I sent out Lera to use Yawn firstly before using Sludge. Unfortunately Sludge didn't do much whilst Shock Wave took over half of Lera's HP. I healed Lera up and continued using Sludge whilst Manectric was asleep. Wattson healed and soon Manectric woke up so I decided to switch Lera out. The last thing Lera did was crucial though as Sludge poisoned Manectric. I switched to Peanut, who with Mach Punch and Poison was able to comfortably take out Manectric. Phew!

Afterwards, I healed up and picked up Marino who was now on a par with my team and headed to Verdanturf Town where I freed Risturf Tunnel before heading back and moving north. I took out the Winstrates before capturing my next Pokemon... Rally the Numel. I taught him Rock Smash and continued onwards, but I made an annoying mistake in the Fiery Path, forgetting to pick up a Pokemon. :P I continued to Route 113, where I caught Lopez the Spinda and I had a heart attack when I took on that double battle in the north as the Koffing used Selfdestruct, but luckily it wasn't enough to kill either Pecks or Sarge who went down to yellow health. However, later in the route, disaster struck. Sarge was fighting a Koffing and Ember only went down to red health before the Koffing used Selfdestruct. And got a Critical Hit. Sarge never stood a chance. RIP Sarge. :( To everyone who said how hard it is to lose a Pokemon, they are totally right. It seems ridiculous, but there was a pit in my stomach. I was so distracted, I nearly lost Peanut before Fallarbor Town, sending him out against two Flying Pokemon in a row, but I switched in time. I healed up at Fallarbor and deposited Sarge in the Graveyard. RIP SARGE! ;256;

I made a decision to train up Rally as a back-up and after a lot of training I was ready to carry on. Not much more of note happened. I caught Draconia the Swablu on Route 114, before fighting my way through to Meteor Falls where, sadly, the first Pokemon was a Zubat and not a Solrock. :/ Oh Well, I named him Fangs and saw Archie face the Magma Grunts before I headed south back to Rustboro where I healed up and I am now. I'm gutted about Sarge, I truly am.

RIP

1. When a Pokemon faints, it is considered dead. I cannot do anything with it, except put it in a Death Box in my PC. I can't use it for trades or anything like that. I can't revive it, it is dead.
2. I must nickname all of my Pokemon.
3. I will catch the first Pokemon I see on every route/city, but if I don't like it I can bench it and use it at a later date to replace a fallen comrade. However, I must use my starter.
4. If I accidentally kill the first Pokemon from a certain area, I can't capture a new one, I've lost my opportunity to capture a Pokemon from that area.
5. If the first Pokemon on a route is one I have caught before, then it doesn't count and the first Pokemon for that route is the first one I see that I haven't caught before. If a Pokemon from a previous route dies and I encounter it again first, I still cannot capture it.
6. If I have visited the route before I receive Pokeballs, I can still return to that Route and catch a Pokemon.
7. I can use repels but not until I have encountered my first Pokemon in that area.
8. I can use healing items in battle.
9. To determine what starter I pick, I will look at my Trainer ID. If my ID ends in 1, 4 or 7, I must pick Treecko. If it ends in 2, 5 or 8, I must pick Torchic. If it ends in a 3, 6 or 9, I must pick Mudkip. If it ends in a 0, I get free reign over which starter I pick.
10. If I white out at any point in the game, it is considered a Game Over, even if I have Pokemon still remaining on the bench.
11. The game ends when either I run out of Pokemon and Benched Pokemon, white out or defeat Wallace at the Pokemon League.
12. There are no Pokemon Centre restrictions (Its my first run!)
13. If I see a shiny in the wild, I reserve the right to catch it. However, I can't use it in my team unless it was the first Pokemon found in the route/city. If it wasn't the first found, it must be permanently boxed until the end of the challenge.

Well, I'll update after Flannery but it may not be until later this week. I need to go to bed now because I have work in the morning, but I will say for tonight...

Another slightly big update, things will be goign much faster now.

-I took on the Fighting-type gym in Saffron City to get myself either Hitmonlee or Hitmonchan.
-Twins got some much need exp by just spamming Flying. An I chose Hitmonchan nicknamed him JackieChan...I'm so original.
-I took care of all the Team Rocket grunts in Silph Co. building
-I took on my Rival and it was a complete joke, even though his Pokes were just 2 levels higher then mine. I just destroyed everything.
-I grabbed the Lapras and nicknamed it Nessy, a nice Water/Ice-type Pokemon just if I ever need it.
-Now Giovanni was a little trouble because Brad only had Giga Drain but some what bad defenses. I could have had Tortuga take care of everything but I wanted my other Pokes to have a chance. Probably not the best thing considering DigDug is so squishy. I was able to beat him without losing anyone thankfully. Unlike the last battle, Isabel & Jake you'll be missed :'(
-On Route 19 I fished and found a Lv 25 Krabby and nicknamed it Jim. If you put both the krabby's I've captured together you get Slim Jim :D
-Time for some serious grinding before I face Sabrina, I really don't want to lose the Challenge now :(
-So I just messed around on Routes 19, 20, an 21 made my way to Cinnabar Island.
-I found a Lv 22 Tangela on Route 21 nicknamed him Spaghetti.
-I found a Lv 30 Grimer in Pokemon Mansion and nicknamed him Sludge
-Now most of my Pokemon are lv 40, and pretty much the only Pokemon I have to fight Sabrina with is Tortuga. Johnson can take the hits so he's an option but everyone else will get destroyed.
-Well that was easier then I thought it would be. Snorlax just walled her entire team and demolished them. I didn't even need to use anyone else in this battle, can't believe I was worried XD
-I decided to get the Itemfinder so that I can get the Leftovers from the Snorlax's and I put them on my bulkiest Pokemon, Snorlax and Tortuga.
-An now I'll be getting my seventh gym badge right after since Tortuga is more then ready.
-As far as what Pokemon I'll be getting on Cinnabar Island, I don't know if I want to revive Kabuto or Aerodactyl
-Ok beat all the trainers in Blaines gym, I decided to put DigDug up front to get a quick kill. I want to put some excitement instead of just easily taking out all his Pokemon with Tortuga.
-His Lv 42 Growlithe's Fire Blast took DigDug down to 33 Hp....well that's enough excitement for me in this battle :)
-Surprise, surprise when I go outside of Blaines gym to find Bill. Time to head to the Sevii Islands.
-I found a Lv 31 Ponyta on Kindle Road and nicknamed her Jessie. Nice I finally got a fire-type Pokemon.
-I got to Mt. Ember and started to think I was stuck because I absolutely forgot to pick up HM Strentgh and couldn't move the boulders that were in my way. Of course I learned that I didn't need to go to Mt. Ember but yet I had to go to Two, an Three Island to finish the mission(Derp moment, it happens)
-I found a Pidgey on Bond Bridge but didn't want it so I killed it...
-On my way to save Lostelle Brad finally leveled up to 42 to learn Razor Leaf, not entirely sure if I really should have waited so long to learn it because it's not all that powerful. Anyways I used the leaf stone on Brad to evolve him into a Victreebel.
-I found a Lv 31 Slowpoke in Berry Forest and nicknamed him Derpmon.
-I found Lostelle and easily beat the Hypno. I gave the meterorite and went back to talk with Bill to go back to Kanto.
-I decided after arriving back in Kanto to grab the Old Amber in Pewter City. I went back to Cinnabar Island and revived Aerodactyl instead of Kabutops. I nicknamed him Sash.
-Now that I have all seven gym badges it's time to take on the 8th and final gym. Then I can take on the Elite Four, as far as the challenge it will continue but in a way it's also complete. Leaf Green/Fire Red, even G/S and HG/SS are different then other games because the advanture continues even after you beat the Elite four.
-I gave Triplets, Brad, and Tortuga the chance to take care of all the trainers in the 8th gym.
-I then demolished Giovanni's entire team with Tortuga and Brad.
-It's time to take on Victory Raod, and then the Elite Four. It'll have it's own part and should be posted sometime tonight or tomorrow(I've got work whcih takes up most of my time)

Note: I wanted to mention in my second update but forgot. I'll be doing another Nuzlocke Challenge as soon as I defeat(or lose) the Elite Four. This is just to keep me busy until Pokemon X & Y are released. So the next Nuzlocke Challenge will be Soul Silver, I'll be going through the generations in order and I'll start a new one as soon as I defeat the Elite four even if there's more after it like in Gen I & II.

Note: This would have been posted earlier but unfortunetly I got sick for 3 days starting on the 11th. Had the stomatch fue and a major migraine did nothing but sleep for two days and was able to eat again on the third day. It wasn't fun at all.

In all my previous updates I've never really went into great detail on what's been happening(pretty much because I'm rushing a little). But since this is the ending as far as I'm counting anyways, I'll be putting in details of the battles especially when I face against the Elite Four.(Since the battles will be slightly long they'll all be in spoilers.)

-Ok to start things off I'm a little worried since my Pokemon a little low leveled.(I haven't really grind) So taking on my Rival before I go through Victory Road is going to be a slight challenge I think. Since I already know he'll be leading off with Pidgeot I'll be using John, I would use DigDug but his stats are starting to show.
-I'm leading with John to get the advantage against my Rival Blue.
-He sends out Pidgeot that's four levels higher then John and goes for a Quick Attack but get's Paralyzed by Johns Static Ability.
-I used Spark just to see if it would be enough but sadly it brings it to the Yellow. I go for another Spark hopping he does heal, Pidgeot is paralyzed and unable to move and Spark kills it.
-He's about to send out Rhyhorn so I switch to Brad. I go for a Razor Leaf and get a OHKO, an oh god he's sending out Alakazam it's a tough decision on who I use.
-Either Tortuga or Johnson as they have the high Sp. Def and everyone else will get destroyed. I sent out Johnson in hopes I can wall it even though he's Level 41.
-I go for Yawn just to put it to sleep later on, and he uses Clam Mind....oh god. He uses another Clam Mind and I use Body Slam in hopes I can OHKO it but it barely lives in the Yellow.
-It does get Paralyzed but Synchronize makes Johnson paralyzed as well(doesn't matter he's already slow). Crap he used Disabled and I used Body Slam again >.<.
-He uses Psychic and takes a huge chunk of Johnsons Hp, I go for a headbutt but Johnson is Paralyzed. I use a Full Restore and his Alakazam is paralyzed Thank Arceus.
-I go for another Heatbutt to take it out and I outspeed him, his most threatning Pokemon is gone.
-He's sending out Growlithe so I use Tortuga, I go for the KO with Surf.
-He's sending out his starter so I decide to send out Triplets, he uses Razor Leaf and does some damage I go for Fly but take half it's Hp(He's 10 levels higher then Triplets that's why).
-I go for another Fly but his razor leaf get's a crit, Triplets is dead. I send out Johnson his razor leaf hardly does anything and Body Slam brings him to the read.
-I go for another Body slam his razor leaf brings me to the Yellow with 76 Hp and I kill his Venusaur.
-Now his final Pokemon is Gyrados I sent out John to get an easy win to end it. His intimidate lowers my Atk so I use Shock Wave and OHKO's his Gyrados.
-With losing my Flying Pokemon I'm unsure who will replace him. I went back to the Pokemon Center to deposit Triplets and heal my Pokemon. I head back to conitnue onto Victory Road.
-I go by each guard showing my badges to enter into Victory Road.
-On Route 23 I found a Slowpoke but decide to pass since I already have a high level Slowpoke.
-I now stand infront of the Victory Road entrance. This is the second challenge before facing the Elite Four. I check my bag and realize I'm unprepared(Also that I don't have HM STRENTGH -_-)
-I'm currently using Walter as my Flying Pokemon. I'm thinking about leveling up Sash for the Elite Four. If only I had enough Pokemon caught to get the Exp. Share. I'll also be replacing DigDug with someone else because he's way to squishy and I don't want him dieing so easily. So I'm going to train up Derpmon
-When I first entered into the Victory Road I found an Onix nicknamed it Pebbles.
-I finally made my way through Victory Road, many of the trainers inside tested my skills. But none of them were a challenge. I made it to Indigo Plateau and looked over my team. An I decided that I needed to grained some much needed levels. I'm afraid Pokemon in the 40's won't do as well considering my Rival is in the 60's.
-Alright after grinding a tons of levels on One Island. I managed to get Sash and Derpmon to the rest of my team levels.
-Final preparations and stocking up on Full Restores. This is it the final challenge, it's now time to face the Elite Four.
-I lead off with John for the type advantage, as she sends out her Dewgong.
-Thunderbolt nearly kills it and she uses Hail to change the weather. As I take damage my leftovers recovers from it.
-I go for shock wave to save T-bolt's pp an her Dewgong is down.
-She sends out Cloyster and I got for another T-bolt which is a OHKO. John even levels up to 54 to learn Explosion....
-Lorelei sends out Slowbro I use another T-bolt and it just barely survives. It attacks back with a Surf bring John to half hp. The Hail finishes her Slowbro.
-She now sending out her best Pokemon Lapras. I used a Max Potion not knowing what she'll do. She uses Ice Beam that doesn't hurt John that much and one T-bolt takes it down.
-Her Final Pokemon Jynx comes out while I switch to Derpmon.
-She uses Sweet Kiss and puts Derpmon to sleep. Then uses Ice Punch, Derpmon still sleeps like a baby. He won't wake up and Jynx uses another Ice Punch. Should have used a full restore I have like 27 of them. It uses one more Ice Punch and Derpmon wakes up to land a Shadow Ball that kills it in one shot.
-One Elite Four Member down, three to go. I heal the injuried and head on.
-I lead off with Sash for the type advantage of course, but I completely forgot he starts with Onix XD
-Doesn't matter this Elite Four member is always the least threatning. So I send in Tortuga and take a Rock Tomb.
-An down his Onix goes with a Surf, Hitmonchan is coming so I send back out Sash.
-I use Fly and fly up high his move of course misses and I use Fly. It kills his Hitmon chan in one hit.
-Bruno decideds to send out his best Pokemon Machamp. Sash uses Fly while Machamp uses Bulk Up and only manages to bring his Machamp down half Hp. It eats a berry to recover a little health.
-I use Fly again to bring him down to the red, and luckily his Machamp missed.
-As expected he uses a Full restore while I use Fly bring him down half Hp and while I do that his Machamp uses another Bulk Up.
-With another Fly I bring him down to the red but because of his Bulk Up the Cross Chop OHKO's Sash. I said earlier he isn't threatning which he isn't but only when his Machamp gets a few Bulk Up's.
-I send out Derpmon to take care of it with a Psychic, his Cross Chop did about 60 Hp not enough to bring Derpmon to half Hp.
-Hitmonlee is next it's Mega Kick only does about 40 Hp to Derpmon. One Psychic nearly kills his Hitmonlee lucky him, and of coure he uses a Full Restore, an wow a Brick Break did half Hp to Hitmonlee.
-Tries Mega Kick but misses and gets killed by Psychic. His last Pokemon is Onix easy enough.
-I send out Tortuga to finish it with a Surf.
-Sad aboust Sash I should have just let Derpmon take care of Machamp after the few Bulk Ups
-I start off with Snorlax and she leads with Gengar but wish I could have gaven him a proper move to use....I go for a Water Pulse just for the loz. Of course it just has to miss, not to Derp up completely I just switch to Derpmon.
-Confuse Ray just keeps messing up Derpmon but with his high defenses even Gengar isn't dealing much in fact it's just Double teaming like a npc noob.
-One Shadow Ball brings it down to near death and Agatha just has to use a Full Restore. The next one is a Critical Hit.
-Golbat is next and I decided to send out John. T-bolt to the face...with a smile and it dies.
-Arbok is third and here comes Derpmon, Arbok's Sludge Bomb leaves Derpmon with 44 Hp but gets killed by a Psychic.
-Another Gengar comes out and Derpmon is prepared just look at his face, so determined. I use a Hyper Potion. Shadow Balls goes flying, while her Gengar puts Derpmon to sleep with Hypnosis.
-Derpmon sleeps soundly while it gets pelted with Shadow Balls. A Full Restore is all she needs.
-So many Shadow Balls and I'm surprised Derpmon's Sp. Def hasn't even fell once, lucky. But another Hyper Potion cause of the constant SB's.
-Another Shadow Ball brings her Gengar down to 1 Hp but it's Sitrus Berry recoves some Hp. Another Hyper Potion.....An her Full Restore -_-
-Darn Hypnosis........and Nightmare.........
-One Shadow Ball and Derpmon wakes up, a Shadow Ball hits Gengar and it's Sp. Def lowers :D
-Another Hyper Poiton just to be safe, and a darn Critical hit brings it down to 46 Hp.....another...Hyper poition....
-Derpmon's Sp. Def finally falls and I send out Tortuga to use Surf and kills the annoying Gengar.
-Her last Pokemon is Haunter which eats another Surf. Barely lives it but dies to the second one.-With three of the four members down, Lance is the last one. The Dragon Master.
-I lead off with John as Lance leads with Gyarados. T-bolt to the face Gyarados.
-Dragonair comes next and I send out Tortuga. I use Ice Beam but it barely lives. I tried to Surf for the kill but of course a Full Restore. One more Ice Beam kills it.
-Another Dragonair comes out to take the Ice Beam. It barely lives and comes back with a Hyper Beam which does crap to Tortuga and dies to a Surf.
-A Dragonite comes out, his strongest Pokemon. I use Ice Beam but it only uses Safeguard. It just barely lives with it's x4 weakness to Ice.
-Outrage barely does anything but my Surf misses. His Outrage continues but dies to the Surf.
-Aerodactyl is his last Pokemon I start off with a Full Restore. It's Hyper Beam barely does half Hp to Tortuga. I go for the free Ice Beam but survives in the yellow. I go for another Ice Beam to finish of Lance. It's Hyper Beam leaves me with 66 Hp and his Aerodactyl dies.
-That's it the Elite Four has been defeated. But there's one more challenger I must face...My Rival(Shocker)
-I lead off with John again, Blue leads with Pidgeot. T-bolt to the darn face Pidgeot. It just barely lives, darn you Pidgeot and your high defenses
-Shock wave for the kill but he uses Full Restore. Only brings it down half Hp so another Shock Wave to finally finish it.
-Rhydon is next so Tortuga comes out. Uses Surf for a OHKO I've taken the lead.
-His best Pokemon Venusuar comes out and I send out Johnson. I try out a Return with a Lv 52 Snoralx to a Lv 63 Venusaur...but almost does half. Second time it uses Sunny Day, time to spam Return just barely kills it.
-It's Sitrus Berry restores a little of it's Hp, another Return for the kill but before that a Solar Beam just barely kills Johnson with 20 Hp.
-His Alakazam comes out now so I send out Derpmon. It hits me for a Psychic barely brings me down half, but Shadow Ball almost kills it. Prepared for a Full Restore here.
-How did I call it so another Shadow Ball to the face Alakazam to bring it down again. Another Full Restore come on cause I used Brick Break to finish it. Another Shadow Ball will kill it but he switches it to his Gyarados.
-Dragon rage brings me to half and Psychic nearly kills it, same moves and his Gyarados dies.
-Arcanine comes out so I send out Tortuga, Surf ftw for your Extremespeed does nothing. But my Surf barely kills it. Another Surf shoudl have killed it but of course another Full Restore.
-It uses another Extremespeed so it get killed by the Surf. Now it's just his last Pokemon Alakazam.
-Derpmon comes out and I use a Full Restore because it's ok when I do it. It's Pyschic brigns her down to half hp but Shadow Ball finishes it
-YES, I've defeated my Rival and became the League Champion!

Congratulations Zyon! You've just done the most diificult part of the challenge, as the Sevii Islands are fairly easy. A few things I'd like to comment...


-Derpmon's Sp. Def finally falls and I send out Tortuga to use Surf and kills the annoying Gengar.

You know, even if Shadow Ball lowers your Sp. Defense, it's still physical (Gen. 3 doesn't have the Physical/Special split) so it doesn't matter at all.


Outrage barely does anything but my Surf misses. His Outrage continues but dies to the Surf.

Surf never misses, how did it miss?

And at last I have returned to a Nuzlocke challenge!

This time, I decided to start a FireRed challenge, with new rules. I can catch duplicates if I want to, but otherwise, if a Pokémon in an evolutionary line I have appears (whether alive or dead), then I can keep looking for a new one. Shinies can be caught, no matter if I've already caught a Pokémon for that area, and, due to their rarity, can be considered 'immortal'... unless I find more than three, in which case they'll be reduced to starter status. Speaking of which, starters are the only Pokémon which get a second chance if they faint.

Another ridiculous rule I've started that, in most cases, a lot of nicknames will be Kid Icarus themed. Only in a few cases can this be exempt, such as Rattata (which I nicknamed Lucky after one in a solo-Rattata run).

As usual, I started the game, and this time, instead of my usual starter, Charmander, I decided to use one I rarely used- Squirtle. Luckily enough, she turned out to start off female, and thus, quickly inventing my final rule there, I nicknamed her Pandora. With my new Squirtle in hand, I did the same old tutorial stuff, before I got my first five Pokeballs at long last and began on my way.

The first Pokémon I ran into was a level 3 male Pidgey. Weakening him with Pandora's Tackle, I got him down to sufficient HP to capture him. It only took the first ball, and remembering the rule of a Kid Icarus theme, what better name to call it than the main protagonist, Pit?

Before progressing, I decided to train a bit in order to fight my rival. Carefully, I trained both Pandora and Pit to level 8 before I realised that I hadn't caught the new member of my team from the next route. Instantly, I rushed there, and dashed straight into the grass to find a simple Rattata. Disappointing, considering there are Mankeys there. Even so, I caught him, and, quickly forgetting the rule, named him Lucky. Whoops. So I altered it a bit... >:3

I spent more time training before stopping for the day.

Team so far:
;007; Pandora, level 10
;016; Pit, level 10
;019; Lucky, level 10

Stored:
;010; Gaol, level 5

@Swoobat: Surf doesn't always hit. I've had it miss.

EDIT: I trained my team to level 10, beat my rival and caught my newest team member, Gaol the Caterpie. However, I was struggling to trai her, so I placed her in one of my 'Hold' boxes in case I need her.

Surf never misses, how did it miss?As far as the Surf missing that's just one of the random times where even 100% accuracy moves will miss. The old RNG comes into play on this, there is a very small chance that even a 100% accuracy move like Surf will miss. I guess at that moment I was lucky enough to get it :/
However it does not apply to moves like Swift, Shock Wave, or Aerial Ace, etc because they are of course fixed moves to never miss. ONLY in certain situations like when Fly, Dig, or Protect is used.

Unfortunately I needed some of the Pokemon I caught(including Tortuga) for Black 2. So pretty much after finishing the Elite four I migrated them over, I thought I mentioned it somewhere that I would do that.
Anyways I wasn't going to plan on continuing it after defeating the Elite four anyways, I wanted to get started on my next Nuzlocke Challenge to keep me occupied that has a fresh start you know. An that game will be Sapphire which I'll be starting here in a little bit. An update will be posted at some point tomorrow(Was gonna do Soul Silver but I currently have something else going on that).

After defeating the 2nd gym I went on to continue my journey, to Slateport! I defeated the trainers in the route at the beach and in the beachhouse and arrived in Slateport. I did the devon goods/team Aqua bit and healed my pokemon again. In Route 110 I got myself an Electrike, and I continued. I easily defeated may, considering she is usualy is the hardest at that spot for me. And I continued north into mauvile, in route 117 I got an illumise. After training my pokemon a bit I challenged the 3rd gym, and a critical hit saved my combusken.

I decided to start up another Nuzlocke Challenge this time on Sapphire. This is mainly to occupy myself while waiting until X and Y's release. For this particular Nuzlocke Challenge I'll be choosing the starter based on my Trainer ID. If the last number ends in 1, 4, or 7 I choose Treecko 2, 5, or 8 I choose Torchic and 3, 6, or 9 I choose Mudkip. If it's 0 then I get to choose.

-Pokemon faints it's dead, and must be released(or put in the PC)
-I can only catch the first Pokemon I encounter in each area.
-I must nickname all my Pokemon to form a closer bond
-I'm not enforcing the encounter rule until I receive Poke Balls, meaning the first Pokemon I encounter doesn't count.
-No dublicate Pokemon can be caught, in more detail I can't catch the same Pokemon . I also can't catch any Pokemon in it's evolution line. Even when the Pokemon dies I still won't be able to catch a replacement to add difficulty.
-If I encounter a shiny Pokemon the rules of Nuzlocke won't apply but I can't use them. ONLY if they are the first encounter and I haven't caught them before then the rules of Nuzlocke apply and I can use them.
I've decided for nicknames I'll be doing a Norse God theme.

-I started up the game and my Trainer ID ends with a 3 meaning Mudkip is going to be my starter...So I herd you like mudkips :)
-After destroying the weak Poochyena Professor Birch gives me Mudkip and I nickname it Aegir.
-I travel to Route 103 to fight May, since I haven't received Pokeballs yet the Pokemon I encounter don't count.
-I reach the end of 103 and face against May. It was close I had to use a Potion but I beat her Treecko.
-I finally check Aegir's nature and turns out to be Jolly. Not really the best considering how low Swampert's speed is, but this is in-game.
-I made my way back to Littleroot town to talk with Professor Birch, he gives me the Pokedex and May gives me some Pokeballs. It's offical Nuzlocke begins.
-Before I leave home my Mom gives me the running shoes. Oh how did we ever play Gen I, an II games without them???
-Alright I'm on Route 101, first Pokemon I encounter is....a Zigzagoon. Oh my god, Aegir's Tackle gets a crit and knocks it out....
-I get to Route 103 I found a lv 3 Poochyena and nickname him Weth.
-On Route 102 I found a Lotad buuuuuut I wasted through all my Pokeballs trying to catch it. :'(
-I make my way to Petalburg city and have a talk with my Dad the gym leader. Then get talked into looking after Walley as he catches his first Pokemon.
-After finishing the how to catch a Pokemon tutorial, my Dad wouldn't except my challenge.
-On Route 104 I found a Lv 5 Wurmple and named her Saga.

Yesterday I started my first Nuzlocke challenge, on Pokemon FireRed. This first update's kinda lengthy.
Rules: Nickname all. Faint= release. Set mode. Duplicate clause- 3 encounters. On 3rd encounter, must capture Pokemon anyway.
I started the game and my ID number ended in 2, so I picked Bulbasaur, named Fushigi.
I caught a Pidgey in Route 1 and a Rattata in Route 22, named Pigwidgeon and Mighty, respectively.
Caught another Pidgey in Route 2, named Hedwig. Hedwig later died while grinding on Route 1.
Caught a Caterpie in Viridian Forest, named her Esperanza.
Slayed Brock with Fushigi.
Caught a Nidoran m in Route 3, named Spike.
Accidentally started grinding in Mt Moon before realizing it was a new area, so no new Pokemon from there.
In Route 3, I knocked out an Ekans before catching it.
Slayed Misty with Fushigi.
My rival, Green, wreaked HAVOC on my team. Only Fushigi and Esperanza survived the massacre.
Caught a Weedle named Needles on the way to Bill. The Abra I also encountered on the way teleported away from me.
Caught an Oddish on Route 5, named Leafy.
Caught a Pidgey on Route 6, named Witherwing.
Caught a Diglett in Diglett Cave, named Terra.


I'm currently grinding in Route 6, to prepare for the battle with my rival. I'm trying to get Esperanza, Fushigi, Witherwing, and Terra to level 25.
Current team:
Witherwing- lv. 20 - Spearow
Fushigi- lv. 23- Ivysaur
Terra- lv. 24- Diglett
Esperanza- lv. 23- Butterfree
Leafy- lv. 15- Oddish
Needles- lv. 9- Kakuna

-After healing my Pokemon at Petalburg city I head into Petalburg forest.
-In Petalburg woods I found a Lv 5 Shroomish(YESSSS!!!) and nicknamed him Magni
-It roughed up my team just a bit due to it's Effect Spore ability. Had to go back to the Pokemon center in Petalburg city.
-I easily took out the Team Aqua grunt, I always loved how the guys thanks you by giving you a great ball.
-When I made it out of Petalburg woods I pretty much immediatly went straight to Rustboro City to fight Roxanne. Since I had both Magni and Aegir she wouldn't be much of a challenge.
-An she wasn't Magni set up Leech Seed + Stun Spore + Absorb on Nosepass which quickly took it out. Last turn ended with it being paralyzed and dieing to leech seed.
-I head on Route 116 to find the Team Aqua grunt that stole the Goods.
-On Route 116 I found a Lv 6 Whismur and nicknamed her Elli.
-I found the Team Aqua Grunt and saved both the Goods and the Wingull. Since I caught a Whismur outside I couldn't catch anything because there's nothing but Whismur's inside the cave.
-I went back to get on the boat to head to Dewford to deliver the Letter that I magically got to Steven.
-I let Saga beat up the two Sailors just outside the Granite cave and she evolved into Beautifly.
-Inside the Granite cave I found a lv 7 Zubat and nicknamed him Loki
-I managed to deliver the Letter to Steven.
-I have to grind just a bit in Granite cave before I fight the gym.
-I take on the gym. Since Loki doesn't know any flying moves unless I over grind on levels, it slowly takes out the other trainerrs.
-Playing with Magni in this fight was so risky but effective by using leechseed.
-It took forever to take out Machop because Brawely using two Super Potions. But with Makuhita luckily effect spore poisoned it, all I had to do was stall the fight.
-After receiving my second gym badge it's now time to head to Slateport City.

I was looking for something to do to while doing my breeding project on Soul Silver to keep it from getting too tedious, so I decided to try my first Nuzlocke challenge on FireRed. I decided to do the basic two rules:
1) Can only capture the first pokemon encountered in any area
2) Once a pokemon faints, it is considered dead and cannot be used.

I’ve also decided to include:
3) All pokemon must be nicknamed (I NEVER play with nicknames so this will be new to me.)

So, in the beginning…..I called myself Lucky (because I’m going to need it) and my rival Ichigo. I then had to choose my starter: I eliminated bulbasaur straight away because my breeding project is on bulbasaur and I am sick of looking at them. Charmander would have made life super hard at the first and second gyms, so I went with squirtle. I named him Galactica, and decided to go with a space ship naming theme. So off I ran with Galactica in to route 1 and bumped in to a pidgey – with no pokeballs yet this meant no pokemon from this route for Lucky. Anyway, after delivering Oak’s parcel and running back to Viridian City I stocked up on potions….or got as many as I could afford. Then I skipped off in to route 22 and accidently wondered too far and got in to a fight with Ichigo…without having trained my Galactica yet. A lvl 7 bulbasaur vs a lvl 9 pidgey and a lvl 9 bulbasaur. I was certain my Nuzlocke would be over before it started. Somehow I managed to keep myself afloat though by tackling and using all my potions once Galactica was in the yellow. Afterward I managed to catch a mankey who I named Serenity.

I then ran in to a weedle on route 2, typed in “Enterprize” in to the nickname box, accepted and then realised my error. How did I even make that mistake? Somewhere in the world right now a Trekkie is looking at my post disgusted. Anyways, I kept going in to Viridian Forest and caught a kakuna who I named….Enterprise and then decided some training was in order. I went back to route 1 to train on the easiest pokemon to play it safe and Enterprize still fell to a pidgey on a critical hit. RIP little “Z”. After a bit of training I hit up the trainers in Viridian Forest, and Serenity got herself poisoned. With only one potion and no antidotes, it was a teeth gritting dash back to the pokemon center, having to use the potion about half way when her health hit 1 hp. Luckily she made it, and I finished up in the Forest and in to Pewter City where Galactica swept through Brock’s gym for the first badge. Woo. Route 3 saw the addition of Moya the pidgey and an accidental crit on a zubat meant no Mount Moon pokemon for me (although I did get the dome fossil so I guess that counts?) Route 4 saw the addition of Voyager the ekans and I saved and left the game there. Not sure How to tackle the next gym, but I must say this is really fun. I would have never played with pokemon like mankey or ekans otherwise.

...Welp...this looks...sort of bad. *laughs weakly* Hello guys, This is Misty here...um...I vanished.
Well...long story short, my Nuzlocke run of XD Gale of Darkness...failed. After my last post a few months, maybe a year ago, I got to Citadark Isle, the final area of the game! [For the record, the last Pokemon I ever caught was Shadow Altaria]

I didn't lose because of a black out or anything like that...but of my will to go on shadering in a million peaces. All because of a man named Cipher Admin Gorigan.

So, let me catch you guys up on the ORIGINAL version of Misty's Gale of Darnkess Nuzlocke.
I last left you guys after the death of my Teddiursa, Rose, to the Shadow Spheal, caught the Shadow Seedot [to use].

Since I will be going through a lot of game play, I'll just hit the key points:
-That Seedot was later named Funga, which means Lock in some language. I loved the idea, and named her this. She had a Sassy Nature.
-The next catch that I could use was a Numel I named Numa, who was Sassy Natured. However, he died at level 20 to Lovrina's Lovedisk [...yeah, that thing killed me].
-Makuhita was next in the using list, but before he could be purified, he fainted. He had a Sassy nature, and died to recoil damage [or poison...can't remember]
-I caught my next Pokemon, Vixion the Vulpix who had a Lonely Nature.
-Then, twice in one location, I caught Paudaaisu the Seel and Luna the Lonatone [Gentle and Careful respectively]. I had Luna be a girl in my mind, and Paudaaisu was also a female.
-Thug Zook caused me to begin to lose my heart, killing both Paudaaisu and Funga, who was then a Shiftry. Paudaaisu was level 27 while Funga was level 31.
-My next member was the Elekid Hordel trades you for healing his Togepi. [It was usable anyways, so yeah] His name was Zaprong and his nature was Naughty.
-It was then...this killed me. Cipher Admin Gorigan kills my Jolteon, my pride and joy, with an Earthquake from his Usaring. Just...dead, gone. I was silent through the rest of the match, catching Peanut the Primeape [Rash Nature, female]...but I was suffering really badly by this point.
Raku was level 41 when he went down. Zaprong takes his place, and I continued with a broken heart.
-My last catch was Aquila, the Altaria. She was Docile Nature. However, with a final cost, the turning factor of my choice. Luna falls, my Lunatone.
I quit, fearing my favorite of the group, Mighty [Mightyena] was the next to go.
The final team was this:
Aquila [Altaria] Docile Lv42 f
Zaprong [Electabuzz] Naughty Lv42 m
Vixion [Ninetales] Lonely Lv43 f
Mighty [Mightyena] Naice lv43 m
Peanut [Primeape] Rash Lv43 f


HOWEVER, I am back in Orre, back in Gale of Darkness for round TWO! And this time, I will finish this game, whether I black out or NOT!

My ruling is simple:

If a Pokemon Faints, I can no longer use them because they are dead.
Because there are X amount of Pokemon, and the encounters are rather...scripted, instead, I will be rolling a die after each catch. If I roll a 2, 4, or 6, I am free to use the caught Pokemon and Purify them, ext. HOWEVER, if the Pokemon I caught gets a 1, 3, or 5, I must go to a Pokemon Center ASAP and box them, never to be used again. I call this Locking. I am not allowed to Purify them or anything.
Name all of my Pokemon...but I do this anyways.
Try to catch all the Shadow Pokemon.

And that is that.

My Journey starts in the West side of Orre, inside Krane's Lab. Of course, fighting that virtual trainer with the Metagross. I win the battle -Let's be honest, who DOESN'T win that battle?- and come back to reality. I look at my starter, an Eevee later nicknamed Rifu.
http://media.pldh.net/pokemon/gen3/rusa_action/133.gif Rifu, my starter. He is a Level 10 Male Eevee with the Nature Adamant [Which I JUST learned raises Attack and Lowers Special Attack...UHG!]
I do all the stuff I need to do, not even reading the text. And, before I know it, my first catch, the male Shadow Teddiursa from Spy Naps. I role my die for the first time of the run, and...1. DARN! Teddiursa is Locked. This doesn't boat well for me.
Without knowing that Adamant lowers Sp. Attack...I evolve Rifu into a Vaporeon. I chose Vaporeon because it is more bulky and strong. Well, let us hope he's nature will not hinder him.
http://media.pldh.net/pokemon/gen3/rusa_action/133.gif->http://media.pldh.net/pokemon/gen3/rusa_action/134.gif
I head into Gateon Port [obviously, do to Rifu evolving] and catch my next Pokemon, a Male Poochyena from Bodybuilder Kilen. I roll the die and...1. W-What? I had to fight this battle with Rifu alone, and Poockyena was Locked. Gosh darn it, this is a bad sign.
I go to the final Shadow catch, and cross my fingers. I catch the Male Ledyba from Casual Guy Cyle. [His response to this always makes me sad. "I thought you caught my Pokemon at first." ...Sir...I did] I roll my die, and...and...6! Thank goodness! I begin training the Ledyba on the double.
http://media.pldh.net/pokemon/gen3/rusa_action/165.gif
I go through the next town, Agate Village, getting my only Shadow Pokemon's Heart Gauge down to Opening. And then I fought Eagun and his Pikachu. And it was faster than both Rifu and the Shadow Ledyba.
He hits the Ledyba. I cringe, knowing that I was now be facing a Pikachu with one Vaporeon...
He lived...MY LEDYBA LIVED! He lived with...get this...ONE hp!
We managed to defeat the Pikachu, and the living Ledyba is purified after being healed.
His name?
http://media.pldh.net/pokemon/gen3/rusa_action/165.gif Nyckelpiga, one of my favorite members of my Crystal Nuzlocke a long time ago. He returns once again with a Lonely Nature, Raising Attack and lowering Defense.
...This is going to be a long road ahead of me, eh?
But, hey, I learned that Ledyba can learn Psybeam...WELL, that is helpful...I guess.
Finishing the day off in Mt. Battle, and I am now going to evolve Nyckel [Nickname for Nyckelpiga] before anything else bad happens. [Both of my Pokemon will be around 18, which is the levels of the Shadow Pokemon in the upcoming area]
I save my game, and rightfully give an early Bro Badge to Nyckel for living with one HP from a super effective Thundershock from a Level 12 Pikachu... know, this doesn't SOUND so amazing...but this is a Ledyba, we are talking about here.

Well, I was a bit worried about my upcoming battle with my rival, so I decided to level everybody to 18 in route 4 - where I lost Moya to a spearow on a critical hit. I was so furious with myself for letting that happen...I almost decided to go heal her but no, I stuck to the rules.

:(

After I decimated my rival and the trainers on nugget bridge I ran in to route 24 grass and caught myself a caterpie who I named after the Defiant. I was *really* hoping for an abra, so I boxed her out of disappointment. In route 25 I found myself an oddish who I named Normandy and used the trainers in that route to bring his level up to scratch.

Then it was time to challenge Misty's Gym where I ended up losing Voyager to my own stupidity, but I did get the Cascade badge. Then on to route 5, where I found another pidgey (yay) who I named Talyn. Anyone who understands why is awesome. Through the underground passage to route 6 and the first pokemon to show was another oddish so no new pokemon for me.

I decided to leave it there for the night.

Goodness, I just hate it when you lose Pokemon to Crits. >:C They are never fun.

Anywho, over in Orre, Nothing...really happened...YET!

Day 02 of Misty's XD Gale of Darkness...Take TWO!

As I said, I got Rifu and Nyckel to level 18...and boy is Riu's Adamant nature showing...*shivers*
But, at Level 18...
http://media.pldh.net/pokemon/gen3/rusa_action/165.gif->http://media.pldh.net/pokemon/gen3/rusa_action/166.gif
Nyckel...he can do some type of damage. He makes me proud. <3

I ride over to the Cipher Lab, and get ready for the six Shadow Pokemon. I cross my fingers for some luck...
My first attempt was with Cipher Peon Purpsix and his Poison Pokemon. The Shadow Pokemon; a level 17+ female Gulpin. Weakening her and catching her was a breeze, and a roll my die.
...
4.
This will be interesting. I never did use a Gulpin before, but I have used a Muk once.
http://media.pldh.net/pokemon/gen3/rusa_action/316.gif
The next attempt was the level 17+ Male Seedot from Cipher Peon Greesix. I am happy to be catching another one, loving how Funga worked in the failed run...but.
3. -_- Life hates me.
Cipher Peon Resix is next with his level 17+ male Houndour...1. GOSH DARN IT! Not again!
I turn my attention to Cipher Peon Browsix, forgetting that he was there. I remembered the Pokemon he used, a level 17+ Baltoy. I quickly catch it, and roll my die. 4...
FOUR! Yes! Another member to the Misty train!
http://media.pldh.net/pokemon/gen3/rusa_action/343.gif
This will be interesting. I never used a Baltoy, same with the Gulpin.
Cipher Peon Blusix was next, and I catch the level 17+ Spheal easily. It would be the first Pokemon I would box for later, considering I have Rifu...
3...
Or...not. I'm not using a Spheal...that works, too.
The level 17+ male Mareep is the last one from Cipher Peon Yellosix. I catch the Mareep, after almost losing my starter, and roll my die.
...4...FOUR! Again, FOUR! I get to use a Mareep!
http://media.pldh.net/pokemon/gen3/rusa_action/179.gif
Said to be the most overused early electric type...and I have the privilege to use one. I am glad, because now I have a Pokemon that can use Thunder Wave!

I go back to Mt. Battle, getting ready to train/purify my three new Shadow Pokemon. [this is what is going to happen before I get access to the dancing place and more than 6 Pokemon] And save my game.
The Gulpin is almost Purify-able, but I cannot remember her nature at the moment. I want to say it is Rash...but I am not 100% sure.

I headed west in to route 11 and caught a drowzee who I named Nostromo. A dash through Diglett's Cave gave me a diglett named Sulaco. I then took the S.S Anne by storm, got cut and then swept through the Vermilion Gym with Sulaco. During this time both Talyn and Normandy evolved.

After getting the cascade badge I headed in to route 9 and the first pokemon encountered was a rattata who I named Adriatic.

Game was left there for now. Hope everyone else is going well in their Nuzlocke challenges!

After dropping off the face of the earth for the last few months, I've decided to restart my LeafGreen run. Standard rules apply except for five modifications:

1.) Route 2 before Viridian Forest and Route 2 after Viridian Forest are two separate areas.
2.) Encounters only count as such after receiving Pokeballs.
3.) Gift Pokemon or in-game trades don't count as encountered or "caught."
4.) Only one Game Corner Pokemon allowed.
5.) When a Pokemon of level n faints, use a random number generator to pick an integer between 1 and n. If the number generated is greater than or equal to n/2 (for even n) or (n+1)/2 (for odd n), the Pokemon is considered dead. If the number generated is less than that, the Pokemon is still alive.

I used the number generator to choose my starter. I ended up with Charmander, and named him Dragon. I then went through the standard start-of-game procedure.

The first Pokemon I ran into on Route 1 was a level 3 Rattata. I named him Fang. I then went up to Route 2 before Viridian Forest and caught another level 3 Rattata, Lorna (points for spotting the reference!). I went to Route 22 before settling in to train before the first rival battle; there I caught a level 3 Spearow, Flicker.

That's about it right now. I'm currently training for the rival battle. Taking it pretty slow, too, with school and everything.

Hello people of the third generation. I have returned to Nuzlocking after beating Pokemon X [now wishing there were more than one save file to Nuzlocke it.]

Now, know I have another Nuzlocke going right now...but being that I have really no way of playing it So I am choosing to put the game on hold for now.

HOWEVER, I turn my attention to my favorite region, Hoenn. [this is like, the third try at this generation.]

So, my Nuzlocke has some steep ruling...I think.
I can only catch the first NEW Pokemon within a new route. [Dupes are on]
If a Pokemon faints, they are considered dead and can no longer be used.
No use of Items inside of battles, however held items are fine.
Black Outs DO NOT count as Game Over. I MUST use up all of my Pokemon until no more Pokemon can be used.
I cannot over level my Pokemon. They must be lower or at the level of the Gym Leader. If a Pokemon is over leveled, I cannot use them until I beat the gym.
I am not allowed to run away from Wild battles, no matter how weak or strong. I am also not allowed to use Repel.
Battle Style put to Set

Roxanne: Level 15
Brawly: Level 18
Wattson: Level 23
Flannery: Level 28
Norman: Level 31
Winona: Level 33
Tate & Liza: Level 42
Wallace: Level 43
Elite Four: Level Now 55

So, without farther ado, my Day to day Log.


Misty's Ruby Nuzlocke Adventure! Day One
We start my journey by looking at my ID number, determaning which starter I will start with. 48181. 1...Treecko~
So I head up to Route 101 to gain my first Pokemon friend. Cail the Careful Treecko.
I fight my Rival...at level 5, mind you, and beat her [yes...I am a male Misty] in only two moves. And gain two levels at once. Yeah, that's a thing. I get the Pokeballs, and it is game on.
Route 103 yields Zoey the Docile Zigzagoon [Female Lv 3]. I love Zigzagoon, so I am really happy about this. She is slapped into the front of the team right away.
Route 102 yields Seedos the Serious Seedot [Male Lv 3]. Seedos is named after a character in Viva Pinata, so it isn't a fail at naming a Pokemon or anything. He is, however, placed in the box just in case Cail goes down. However, I might bring him back in for the gym battle to have back up.
Route 104 yields Qu the Timid Wurmple [Female Lv 4]. ...Eh...I am really not a fan of this. I might train her on the side while I train the rest of the team, for back up...but she is boxed for now.
Petalburg Woods gave me two Wurmple family members before giving me Shuu the Serious Taillow. Shuu is named after a bird in Hatoful Boyfriend, which kind of reminds me of the evolutionary line...I guess...
Route 116 yields Nimina the Jolly Nincada [Female Lv 7]. This brings me a small little thing that people question a lot when it comes to Nincada. Does Shedinja count? To me, yes. I will be counting it. And her name will be Nimana if Nimina will last till 20.
And then the last catch I catch before I begin training is Whisper the Calm Whismur in Rusturf Tunnel. [Male Lv 6] Same with Seedos, I will but him in the back up if Zoey happens to falls.

And that ends Day one. Nothing to exiting yet...I mean, this is after all the start of the game. Nothing Normally happens at the Start of game.

The Day's Deaths: None


Misty's Ruby Nuzlocke Adventure: Day Two
Boy was the day crazy. Trained everyone to level 12, and the Benched team to level 10. Qu evolves not once, but twice. Dustox is her final outcome, so she might come in handy. Just might...
Seedos tags along in the team JUST in case if Cail dies for what ever reason in the gym battle.
First move Roxanne's Geodude does...Critical Hit.
Kills Cail in one go. ....WELP...that went swimmingly.
Rest In Peace, Cail. Level 5 to level 14.
I send in Seedos, seeing only failure in the future. He is only level 10, and they are level 14, 15.
I use Bullet Seed, and hope for the worst.
5, kills Geodude. 5 times 2 on Nosepass...Seedos...I love you.
I gain the first badge...but at what cost? I lost my starter...eh, I guess I am fine with this, it is nice to play though the game without your starter. Ah well.

I do the whole "save the man's goods" and get the letter for...Steven. [yeah, Steven] And...more catches~
In Dewford Town, I fish up Kie the Impish Magikarp [Lv 9 male]. ...I'll Day Care him later.
Route 107 fishes up Susha the Calm Tentacool [male Lv10] I LOVE Tentacool and the likes, so this pleases me...only problem is that he doesn't have a good move...and will not get a good move for a while. Ah well.
and Granite Cave yields Guzz the Bold Makuhita [Lv10 male] I am happy. I like Makuhita. Slapping him on my team.
I blindly go through the cave, giving the letter to what's his face, and gets Steel Wing. I plan on giving it to Shuu, but only after one thing.
The gym. I FEAR this gym! But, something makes me really...REALLY happy.
Shuu SWEEPS the gym, Leader and all! You live up to your name, Shuu. Killing EVERYTHING in sight. Badge count 2.
While on the beach, little Seedos evolves, becoming...not a seed anymore. But he does get better in his stats...that's good. :3
My last catch for the night is on Route 110, a Naughty Electrike named Ellamint [Lv 12 Female].
Oh yes, and poor Zoey is given Cut...Had to be done.

And that ends day two. Halloween night is just around the corner, so I do not see myself playing much today. [maybe just a little bit of training]

Alright, where is everyone? o3o I want to keep updated, but ah well. Here we go, day three...and boy is it a long one.


Misty's Ruby Nuzlocke Adventure: Day Three
I go into the Trick Room..guy...thing...and gain a Rare candy...going about and gaining some levels.
And then...May...
May was stupid. If it wasn't for the Berry on Shuu, he would have died. Uhg.
Then...some where in the mix...Zoey falls. I look down, only to catch her hitting Zero. NO! Not Zoey...But it was to late.
Rest In Peace, Zoey. Level 3 to Level 16
I give Kie and Susha to the Day Care, having them gaining some levels as I travel.
While training on the trainers around the new town, suddenly Nimina grows to level 20...with an extra spot on the team.
Nimina becomes a very speedy Ninjask while she sheads her skin [..ew] into Nimana. I have no use in having two bugs in my team, so at the moment, Nimina is taking a nice break on the bench.
The last thing that happen was catching Captain the Naive Marill [Level 13 Female]. She is now an Azumarill, holding onto the EXP Share.
Now I am training up as much as possible for this next gym. Let me tell you, I feel as though this battle will be the hardest yet.

I need to find another area to hold my notes at if no one else is posting. :/


Misty's Ruby Nuzlocke Adventure: Day Four
I train everyone to as high as I feel is needed. And I added a new member to the team, learning that they can learn all sorts of moves.
Whisper, who is now a Loudred. Both Whisper and Guzz hit level max at 23, while everyone else grew to level 21.
Speaking of which, a special birdie evolves. That's right, Shuu~ <3
And I begin to fight the gym leader.
Guzz takes out the Magnimite easily, but was left Paralyzed. I have Seedos begin Bullet Seeding the heck out of the Voltorb, and see that he got to the yellow. From memory of the original Nuzlocke, Ruby: Hard Mode, and past experiences, I switch to Nimana, predicting the Voltorb's blowing up. And my prediction was correct. Two down, one more to go.
Magneton uses Thunder wave on the turn Guzz comes in, and because Guzz is already paralyzed, it was a free switch in...and slowly, Guzz Arm Thrusts his way to victory, only living by a hair.
The third badge is mine at last.
I check how my two water types are doing in the day care...and Kie is ready to EVOLVE! One level, and ta-da, Gyarados! However, I like Susha a little better, with the poison plus, so Susha is higher up on the bench.
I smash some rocks [with ether Seedos or Whisper, who both have Rock Smash for the gym]...Lukaus the Lonely Geodude was caught. [Level 13 Male] I was not wishing for this, considering I wanted the Desert to get my catch, but I do like Geodudes.
Then...sadness happens. I learned that Bugs...are weak to Rock types.
While training Nimana for the inevitable [Sp] Normal gym, a Wailmer was switched in, and began using Rollout. And Nimana only had one HP to take it...dying with one hit.
I was devastated. I didn't want to lose this Pokemon, it seemed so useful. But I turned around, and placed her to rest.
Rest in Peace, Nimana, Level 720 to Level 21
I enter route 112 with somewhat broken spirits, when one of my favorite Hoenn Pokemon appear. Neval the Gentle Numel. [Level 14 Male] I haven't added anyone after Nimana's death, so I place him in my team with the EXP Share on his head.
Then...something amazing happened. [No...not a Shiny]
Guzz evolves. I am so happy about this~ I never really used a Hariyama before, and Guzz managed to live his hard levels. And I'll need his bulk for the normal gym now that my original plan has been flattened...I am so sorry, Nimana!! ;-;
The Fiery Path gave Corn the Sassy Machop [Level 15 Male]...Meh. He's benched for now.
A little more exploring, and a few more trainer's butts being kicked, I enter Route 113, and my encoutner was Tedder the Naive Spinda [Level 15 Female] I do love me some Spinda...but I feel as though the spots are very...bland. Ah well, Benched for now, seeing as Whisper is taking the spot of my Normal type...
but not for long, seeing as a trainer's Koffing blows up in his face, killing him. Two down in less than a day. I was heartbroken. I was looking so foward to using Whisper, but alas, it was not meant to be.
Rest in Peace, Whisper, Level 6 to Level 23
I enter route 114, expecting the small cotton bird...but what I got suprised me, causing Tedder to jump down to the lower bench. Cent the Lax Zangoose [Level 16 Male] I always wanted to use a Zangoose, but never seem to have the chance to do so. The poison immunity is very helpful, I thing [even though there are no Poison gyms here, it is still nice] He is placed in the back of my team for now as Neval eats off the EXP Share.
I kill a Zubat [without meaning to] in Meteor Falls. Whoops. \o-o/
With the fire gym coming closer, I enter the Jagged Pass, catching Wanda the Sassy Spoink [Level 18 Female]. ...Thankgoodness I didn't cause her to stop bouncing. O-O
I take the Wynaut egg...but never hatch it. I don't have the time.
And then, the next gym...Captain bubblebeamed the DEATH out of them! Nothing to much to see here.
Now, after fighting the gym trainers of the Normal gym, I end the day training the team to at least level, 30. Everyone can contribute in this gym, just in case if someone falls in the up coming battle.

As this is a Day to day journey, not just when ever something big happens...I will report as normal. even though no one seems to come here, anyways, anymore.

Misty's Ruby Nuzlocke Adventure: Day Five
I train Guzz to level 30, feeling he was ready to take on the gym, and that if he fell, at least my other members could back him up.
And he takes out Norman's first Slaking, but his heath was down to the red.
He brings down Vigoroth to the low yellow [about four Arm Thrusts]...and falls.
Captain is next up, bubblebeaming the Vigoroth to red...and all of Guzz's work was wasted as the Vigoroth heals to full. Slowly, Captain, too, falls, leaving only a sliver left.
Seedos comes next, killing the Vigoroth with a final Rock Smash. He begins to take down the second Slaking, but falls to one of his hits.
Neval comes out, Magnituding as much as he could, but he, too, falls shortly...leaving the Slaking in weak health.
Shuu comes in, and takes the final blow. But...at what cost.
I am left with only two Pokemon of the team, Shuu and Cent.
Rest in Peace, Guzz, Level 10 to Level 30
Rest in Peace, Captain, Level 13 to Level 28
Rest in Peace, Seedos, Level 3 to Level 25
Rest in Peace, Neval, Level 14 to Level 25

I look at my box, bringing in Nimina, Wanda, and Susha. I teach Susha surf, and go to the power plant place to help out the gym leader...and get thunderbolt. There, I catch Ovolt the Rash Voltorb [Level 24]. I add him into the team, and learn quickly that I am not fit yet for continuing on, at least until everyone is at equal terms.
I give Thunderbolt to Ovolt after learning he cannot learn it via level up, and Ice Beam to Susha.

And I have been training ever since. Susha is eating off of the EXP Share while Cent and Ovolt are taking turns taking out trainers in the ocean. Hopefully training will not take much longer...I feel as though I might be ready...
Also...because the routes in the oceans...are way to confusing...I am not going to really count any of them. ^^; I just can't remember if I encountered anything or not.
I chose to bench Nimina and Wanda just to make training quicker and easier.

With so much training later...we have a new team, from what it looks like~
Enter Susha the Tentacruel and Ovolt the Electrode!

Misty's Ruby Nuzlocke Adventure: Day Six
As I mentioned, both Susha and Ovolt evolved, resulting in a pretty good looking team.
I venture forth in the next route, catching Odin the Quirky Oddish on route 119 [Level 25 Male]. I look at him move set, and even though I am lacking a grass type...I bench him.
I make it to my favorite city in the game, Foretree. <3 I just love the music from that place, it makes me so happy.
Route 120 brings Igga the Bashful Kecleon [Level 30 Female]. With Cent in my team, I bench Igga. Front row, however, do to Kecleon being one of my favorites.
Ovolt takes on the gym, and with the help of Susha [almost losing him], we gain our 6th badge. Just two more!!
Route 121 brings me Dusk the Modest Duskull [Level 26 male], and the Safari Zone brings Ozzy the Mild Girafarig [Level 25 Male].
I start training Dusk...but slowly end up benching him as well. Ghost is physical, and from what it looks like, his physical is not good as it could be.
Mt. Pyre brings the Pokemon I wanted. Pera the Impish Vulpix [Level 25 Female].
Cent is given Shadowball, and Pera, after learning Flamethrower, evolves into Ninetales.
We get to the next gym's town, and we have been training since.

The Day's Deaths: None

So...a lot happened in the span of not really 24 hours...Let me tell you about it...

Misty's Ruby Nuzlocke Adventure: Day Seven
Sometime during Training, I chose to train Lukaus, my Geodude, who is now a big, bad Golem.
So...while training....Ovolt is killed by a stupid Machoke getting a Critical Hit. It was trying to take Shuu down as well, but Shuu is way to cool for that, and kills the stupid Machoke...
Rest In Peace, Ovolt Level 24 to Level 35
With my heart broken, I enter the gym without much thought. I mean, I had a Level 40 Zangoose and a level...28 Tentacruel...
We crush the gym...Lesson learned, Winging it works!
But in all seriousness, I get Dive...and teach it to Kie [the Gyarados]. I promise him I'll remove it once I get to Sootopolis City.
I find where the Magma People are hiding, and begin my trek of levels for my team. And then...Maxie. All of his Pokemon were pretty much higher than me...
And...
We...
LIVE!
So, two times the charm of "Winging it works" lightens me...or something. But honestly, this can't work the third time.
Underwater, I catch Opuall the Impish Clamperl [Level 27 Male...*sigh*] Benched for now.
We get to Sootopolis City with the most creepiest music in Pokemon history [in my opinion], Drought. *shivers* And I enter the Cave of Origin...catching Hinawa the Docile Mawile [Level 34 Female]. With the encounter of Hinawa, this only means one thing...
Groudon must be killed.
Forgetting his type, I send in Lukaus to Magnitude the crap out of him, only to be burned...and left in the red. I bow my head, appoligizing to Kie for my following actions. I send the level 20 Gyarados out, and he takes a Slash to the face.
The green health goes down to yellow, yellow down to red...and stops.
He lived....with 7HP....
[B]7HP!
I use Dive while the Groudon begins to play stupid and Earthquakes and Bulk Ups, wasting all of his Fire Blasts while Kie is underwater. But Dive only has ten, and it has to end. Kie ends up falling a hero with the Groudon's HP at a very low yellow, and Susha ends the Groudon's life with a Surf.
Winging it WORKS! :D I'm NOT trying this again with the final gym.
Rest In Peace, Kie, Level 9 to Level 20
You have earned your Bro Badge.
I bring in Ozzy the Giragarig, teach him Psychic and Thunderbolt, and we have been training ever since for the final Gym battle.

I can see the days coming to an end soon, as we are now training for the final fight...and going through Victory Road

Misty's Ruby Nuzlocke Adventure: Day Eight
I am trained enough to fight Wallace, and I enter the final gym battle with some epic music playing in my ears.
So the fight goes swimmingly with Ozzy...until that stupid Milotic comes in. Sadly, my Girafarig falls.
I send in Cent, and Swords Dance...with the Milotic using Ice Beam...Cent lives. I take a risk, using Strength.....
And it dies! *cries tears of joy*
But sadly, this also mean Ozzy is no longer, which makes me really sad. I wanted to use him so much.
Rest In Peace, Ozzy, Level 25 to Level 43
I finally manage to get the final badge of the game, and I take out all the water routes, catching Ernist the Serious Wailmer [Pacifidlog town, Level 43 male], Sebastian the Quiet Sharpedo [Route 132 level 35 male]
I enter the Victory Road and my final catch of the game...Roars me away. Ah well.
And then..Cent is killed...
Alright, here is what happens.
I was fighting a Cool Trainer in the Victory road, and all of my Pokemon were growing weak. [my Golem was at red and poisoned] He sends out a Menetric. My only choice was Cent, do to him not weak and my other Pokemon were weak to electric.
Sparks critical hits...
I dwindle for a bit...but alas, I move on.
I defeat Wally easily...surprisingly. And I make it to the Elite Four.

Now, for the last week, I have been training. Training and training and training. I have a full team now, and it makes me somewhat happy.

~Misty

GimliSam
23rd November 2013, 6:25 AM
Well, I have finally decided to try a Nuzlocke, and in one of the two (three now, I suppose) generations I am the least familiar with. As I enjoy being different, and having read some of the variant rules, I decided to do as follows:

Standard Nuzlocke rules, including nicknames, apply, with one exception. Should the FIRST Pokemon in a given area be a duplicate, the second is catchable. Should the second be a dupe of the same Pokemon, the third is catchable. Under NO circumstances can anything beyond that point be caught, and duplicates of any member of an evolutionary line currently represented in the team cannot be caught. As you will see, this rule has already paid some serious dividends, though I have also already seen it backfire (*cough cough Zigzagoon cough cough*).

Further, no Pokemarts beyond the first one may be visited, save to purchase TMs at the Shopping Mall. This has to do with the flavor brought in with my naming convention - Final Fantasy characters. After all, save for the occasional bit of rare end-game gear (in this game, TMs), item shops kinda, well, suck after the beginning, and you get more than enough from random battles and chests.

Anyway, to the actual playthrough. I started off with Boko the Torchic, and quickly went to do battle with my rival. After handing him a quick loss (I tend to go with female characters), I made my way to the Lab with all due haste to acquire some Poke Balls. As a note, I did NOT start enforcing the first Pokemon per route rule until after I got said Poke Balls. If this is a Nuzlocke faux pas, please do let me know for future reference.

Upon leaving the lab, I entered route 101, and promptly met a Wurmple. I went to check his nature and... my game crashed. Not having saved prior to that point, I restarted, did all the above, and went back into Route 101, Poke Balls in hand. I got into a battle and... Zigzagoon. Not the greatest, but better than a game crash. The fight was going well until Torchic landed a critical hit, but thankfully, the Zigzagoon survived, and I happily added my first capture! In fact, I was so excited about catching him, and so ready to go to sleep for the night, that Zigzagoon, who I was going to call Nanaki, is still Zigzagoon. I hope to rename him eventually. I pressed on to Route 102, and found a Wingull. Nanaki took point on this battle, and remembering when I caught him, smacked the Wingull with a critical hit. Wingull also managed to survive, was caught, and this time I did rename him Garuda. At this point, I called it a night.

The next day saw me tackle Route 103 and some grinding. The first Pokemon saw in Route 103 was a Zigzagoon. The second was a RALTS!!! She was captured in short order, and renamed after a certain sorceress: Rinoa. I ground out a couple of levels to get Rinoa an actual attack, took care of the story stuff in Petalburg, then moved on to 104, where I finally got a crack at that Wurmple that I lost due to the game crash. Shortly thereafter, Eyewing joined the team. Before entering the woods, I decided to get Eyewing to level seven, and evolved to Cascoon. Of course. Never in any of my playthroughs of 3rd Gen have I EVER had a Wurmple evolve into Silcoon. Satisfied (to a degree) with the day's progress, I saved and quit for the evening.

Petalburg Woods saw Zigzagoon pop out first again, followed shortly by a Shroomish. Shroomish was caught, and renamed Malboro. The name proved apt as in his first trainer battle, he handed 5 straight Wurmples humiliating defeats, and gained 2 levels in the process. Since, he has also, when underlevelled, swept the first practice trainer in the Rustboro Gym. He is every bit the rampaging plant monster of doom that the baddies in Final Fantasy are. Anyway, I exited the Woods, and it proved irrelevant when I considered this half of 104 a new Route, since the wild encounters went Zigzagoon, Zigzagoon, Wurmple. I made my way to Rustboro City, healed, and fought the couple of trainers I missed in 104 before challenging the first practice trainer in the Rustboro gym. It may have been a sweep, but it showed me that my team is underlevelled. Armed with that knowledge, I saved and had to quit as it was time to go to work.

My team now:
;255; Boko
;263; Nanaki
;268; Eyewing
;278; Garuda
;280; Rinoa
;285; Malboro

Boxed:
n/a

Deaths:
n/a

Levels are between 7 and 11 (yes, Nanaki is way underlevelled). Next up: grinding, and the Stone Badge!

Apologies about the kinda-sorta double post, but today was eventful, and not necessarily in a good way.

I started by doing some grinding on route 116, where I caught a Taillow (now called Zuu), and entered the Rusturf Tunnel, where I (of course) caught a Whismur (I forgot to rename, but will change it to Barrett). Woohoo! During the grinding, I had one moment of terror when Rinoa got knocked down to 1 HP by a Whismur of all things. Also during the grinding, well, it turns out that my oh-so-reliable memory got a rather important detail wrong. Eyewing was actually a Silcoon, not a Cascoon as previously mentioned. I had just automatically thought - even when evolving from Wurmple - that he would be a Cascoon. Why was? Well, he evolved into a Beautifly partway through the grinding.

And then got one-hit by the Rustboro Gym's second practice trainer.

I should have known that a rock move, even Rock Throw, would do that, but I thought that he could survive one hit, then leech a bunch of the HP back with Absorb. I was wrong. Things got even worse during the fight against Roxanne. I led off with Garuda, my Wingull, who quickly took down Roxanne's Geodude. Out came Nosepass. I used Water Gun, and took off about 1/4 hp. She used Rock Tomb, and took off 100% hp. Malboro was able to win a long battle, but the damage was done. I have now learned two things about Nuzlockes: One - when possible, take NO risks when it comes to super effective moves, especially if they are STAB. Two - GRIND. I was at what I would have ordinarily considered a good level for the fight, and clearly, it wasn't enough.

Anyway, with my party depleted, I brought out Zuu and Barrett, who have since shown that they are surprisingly good (even if I do want Eyewing and Garuda back. I am really quite pissed about losing those two.) I took the boat to Dewford, and entered the main entrance of Granite Cave, where I gladly added Makuhita (Sabin) to the team, though this did lead to Nanaki going to the box.

My team now:
;255; Boko
;293; Barrett
;276; Zuu
;296; Sabin
;280; Rinoa
;285; Malboro

Boxed:
;263; Nanaki

Deaths:
;267; Eyewing
;278; Garuda

Next: grinding, and a decision. Do I count Makuhita as my only capture of Granite Cave, or do I treat all three levels as separate areas? Your thoughts on the matter are welcomed!

Earthquake, Strength, Rollout, Defense Curl
http://pldh.net/media/pokemon/gen4/overworld/rightf2/076.pngWhen I first encountered Lukaus, I was upset. I wanted something from the desert. But then...I trained him...and I LOVE him to death. He doesn't have the best moves...but he is only going to be needed for Earthquake.

http://pldh.net/media/pokemon/gen4/overworld/rightf2/068.pngCorn was added when I was looking for some team members for the Elite battles. He has proven to be quite useful. Flamethrower is just in case it is needed.
Corn sounded like a good name...

Hinawa Female Level 55, Met in Cave of Origin at Level 34
Nature: Docile | Ability: Hyper Cutter | Item: Blackglasses
Hp: 149 | Attack: 101 | Defense: 107 | Sp. Atk: 98 | Sp. Def: 82 | Speed 60
Toxic, Flamethrower, Crunch, Baton Pass
http://pldh.net/media/pokemon/gen4/overworld/rightf2/303.pngHinawa was added when Cent died, knowing I have NOTHING to fight the Ghost types. A friend told me "Steel resists Ghost!" So she was added. She was also given Flamethrower just in case it is needed.

http://pldh.net/media/pokemon/gen3/rusa/202.png
Wallnut Female Level 55, Hatched in Lavaridge Town at Level 5
Nature: Timid | Ability: Shadow Tag | Item: Quick Claw
HP: 319 | Attack: 44 | Defense: 72 | Sp. Atk: 73 | Sp. Def: 84 | Speed: 60
Mirror Coat, Counter, Destiny Bond, Encore
http://pldh.net/media/pokemon/gen4/overworld/rightf2/202.png...My secret weapon. Wallnut will be the Pokemon that I will be using for my greatest fear, Metagross. Metagross only has one Special Move, Psychic. Because Wallnut is also Psychic, it'll be using Physical attacks. All Wallnut needs to do is live through a switch in and at least ONE move in order to Destiny Bond the Metagross.


I will come back tomorrow with the final analysis.

Well, this week was eventful, and by eventful I mean I have gotten from Dewford to Slateport. There was a lot of grinding this week, and the reason for that is Brawly's Makuhita. See, I thought I was sufficiently leveled for the gym, and the practice trainers were a bit of a joke, to be honest. But, Brawly brought his A game. I led with Zuu, my Taillow, and was able to 2-hit his Machop, but in the process, I got taken down to about 1/2 hp, so when Makuhita came out, I started by switching to Malboro, my Shroomish. That is when Brawly started laying down Bulk Up boosts. I used Leech Seed, and was trying to keep on top of my HP with Absorb, but after a couple of hits, it became evident that that wasn't going to work, so I switched back to Zuu.

Who, after getting in one hit with Wing Attack, got KOed by Arm Thrust.

At this point, I figured that with Makuhita at roughly 1/3 HP, I could tank one hit and get the win with my most powerful attack, Sabin's Circle Throw. I brought him in, and sure enough, Brawly was able to take out another of my team, with his Makuhita's 3x Bulk Up boosted Arm Thrust shredding nearly 1/2 of Sabin's life per hit. Finally, I did what I should have done in the first place. I brought in Rinoa, who I had been (foolishly) protecting, and won.

Needless to say, I was discouraged. Two gyms managed to claim 2 Pokemon each. But I decided to soldier on. Noticing that Route 106 is very short, and needing someone new to add to the team, I went fishing, expecting a Magikarp. I am anything BUT a Gyarados fan, but what the heck - there MUST be a reason so many people like it, right? Well, imagine my surprise when it was a Tentacool on the line! Tentacool, and Tentacruel, I am a fan of, so I gladly caught my new team member - Remora. Later, I decided to go fishing in Dewford, as there really are no other options for adding a team member there, and caught that Magikarp, now called Leviathan. That is where the grinding started. Both came in at level 10, and the bulk of my team, though underleveled at 14-15, was still pretty far ahead of them. I grinded everyone up to 15-17, took Steven his letter (without Flash, thank you very much - best change in 4th Gen: making Flash a TM), then decided to head for Slateport.

In Slateport, I skipped giving the package to Stern in favor of catching a Pokemon on Route 110. I was fully expecting Gulpin (who would have gotten the name Quina), but to my delight, a wild Electrike appeared! Ixion was captured, and is now part of my main team. The week ended with delivering Stern the Devon Goods, but only because my DS's battery was running low, and I was on an airplane with no way to recharge it at the time.

My team's two main flaws that I see at this time are that they are still a bit underleveled, but that can be changed fairly easily. The other problem is that half of my team has a very slow EXP growth rate, making grinding REALLY annoying. Next up: leaving Slateport for Mauville, and a gym that I am NOT looking forward to. No ground attacks, let alone Pokemon, means I am seriously afraid of Electric types.

Current Team:
Boko, the Combusiken
Barrett, the Whismur
Remora, the Tentacool
Malboro, the Shroomish
Ixion, the Electrike
Rinoa, the Ralts

Boxed:
Leviathan, the Magikarp
Nanaki, the Zigzagoon

R.I.P.
Eyewing, the Beautifly
Garuda, the Wingull
Zuu, the Taillow
Sabin, the Makuhita

Ugh... just, ugh...

This week was uneventful grinding, until today. I started on the road to Mauville, and ran in to my rival. I had Malboro up first, but he was leading with Shroomish as well. I decided to switch, and brought out Barrett the Whismur, who managed to dodge Stun Spore. This left me with a choice: go with Pound, and risk Effect Spore triggering, or go with Uproar? I chose Uproar. My rival's Shroomish only lasted three hits, but in those turns hit me with Stun Spore, followed by two Mega Drains, leaving me at a little over 1/3 HP. Since I have been playing with Battle Style --> Set, in came Numel, automatically. Barrett didn't quiet down, and was hit by Ember, which finished the job that Shroomish started. The rest of the battle was fairly easy, especially with my rival's Marshtomp leading with Bide, but it was still a costly victory. Barrett had an Adamant nature, and with his best possible attacks all being physical, he looked like a serious contender to be a standout on my team. I'd even used the Protein that Pick Up gave me on him, I was so confident.

After the battle, I healed, and gave Nanaki the slot in my lineup previously occupied by Barrett. The rest of the trip to Mauville was uneventful, but deciding to swing over to Verandurf was, sadly, not. First, I went for my capture on the route between the two, and out popped a Marill. Great, just what I need, a THIRD Water Pokemon. I mean, I like Water types as much as the next trainer, maybe more - I've even done a Water monotype in Blue - but still. I mean, give me a Roselia, or even an Illumise! Oh, well, I caught it anyway, and boxed it.

The trainer battles were going okay, until I took on the second Triathlete. It was Rinoa, my Ralts (Level 19) versus Doduo (level 18). First turn, he used Pursuit, and I used Confusion. He took off just under 1/3 of my HP, but I took out over 1/3 of his. I thought about switching then, but two things stopped me - one, I could race that, especially if he used Growl on any of his turns, and two, if your opponent has Pursuit, you just DON'T switch your Psychic type out. Second turn: he used Fury Attack, and it took Rinoa out in three hits. I don't even remember who I brought in to finish that battle off - Boko, I think - but regardless, I was stunned. Two more deaths, and this time, two team members that I pictured as potential cornerstones of my final team.

Lessons from today: Uproar + Set Battles = BAD IDEA.
Grind more. No, really. When you think that you are high enough leveled, you're not. When you think you are overlevelled, get one or two more levels for each team member, just for good measure. I don't know if Rinoa's death could have been avoided this way - looking now, Doduo has 85-ish base Attack, and it was a STAB move that did me in - but I am pretty sure that Barrett's could have.

Up next: it is Boko (and maybe Malboro, if he evolves before Wattson) versus the Electric gym. Wish me luck - a death here might just lead to my stopping out of frustration.

Edit: I don't know what standard practice is, but I will be considering the desert to be a separate area from the rest of route 111, meaning that The Inevitable Rock Smash Geodude will be catchable, as well as whatever Pokemon ends up being my first encounter in the Desert after I get the goggles.
