3rd Gen Nuzlocke Challenge Thread!


Games in this gen: Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald/FireRed/LeafGreen/Colosseum/XD: Gale of Darkness






What is a Nuzlocke Challenge?


A Nuzlocke challenge involves treating any Pokemon that you have in your party that faint 'dying', and hence said Pokemon cannot be used anymore in the challenge and must be replaced. In addition, you can only catch and use the first Pokemon you encounter in any city, town, cave or route. If the first Pokémon encountered faints or flees, there are no second chances with Pokemon on that route. You complete the challenge when you beat the Champion/see the credits.

There are many other variations of such a challenge - such as having to nickname all your Pokemon (so you have a closer connection to your lost comrades =p) which will be used here, allowing for the first Pokemon you encounter to not include duplicates (so if you encountered a Rattata in one route as your first Pokemon and got it and then encountered another in the next route, you can wait until a different Pokemon appears and treat that as your 'first Pokemon'), no legendaries, restriction on healing items that can be used (beyond Revives obviously) and so forth.



Rules


Please read the Challenge Forum rules before posting. (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=514893)
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.
If you wish to use any other restrictions, please specify them in the first post you make in this thread for your challenge.

Not sure if people are still doing the old school 3rd gen Nuzlocke challenge, seeing as black and white have been out for a while, and people might be tired of running through them the normal way already.
But here goes:
Emerald version: preparing myself the mountains, and the fourth gym. My Makuhita - Taiho, evolved, and is kicking more butt than before. Crazy how early the pokémon evolve in this gen, compared to fifth!
My newest addition is Glee, the Gulpin, and I love it. It packs bullet seeds, which handles rock and ground types surprisingly well! Still mourning over Twin, my second poochyena, that fell for KO the Wingull (now evolved!) It will probably be my trump card against Flannery, unless Pert (starter, guess which) decides to stick around till then. STAB ground will not leave anything desired against torkoal.

EDIT:
Seems my assumption was correct so far...

@ Jessie_James: Looks like a nice start^^
I just beat Flannery, but it cost me. Her #&%*ing Torkoal took down both Taiho (Makuhita) and Xena (Mightyena). I cannot believe it. Oh well, starting fresh with Accumulus (Swablu), hoping it can avenge the lost ones. Let's see what the desert can bring now.

EDIT: Rest in peace, Accumulus.

Alright, so I started my first Nuzlocke run on Emerald. Here is my progress so far:

1. ;258; "Jill", Female, Level 13, encountered at Littleroot Town
2. ;261; "Poochy", Female, Level 10, encountered at Route 103
3. ;280; "Psy", Female, Level 11, encountered at Route 102
4. ;269; "Dusty", Female, Level 10, encountered at Route 104
5. ;285; "Shroomy", Male, Level 10, encountered in Petalburg Forest
6. ;276; "Birdy", Female, Level 10, Encountered at Route 116

Notes:
1.I KO'd the Poochyena I encountered on Route 101 on accident, so I have no pokemon from there.
2.Via sheer luck, I encountered a Ralts with trace as the first pokemon on Route 102. Since it is my favorite evolutionary line ever, I cried a couple tears of joy.
3.I have encountered so many females as the first pokemon in the route(even my starter!) that it isn't even funny anymore. Poor shroomy-I don't think he's breedable with anybody in my party, so he will be....forever alone!
4.Badge #1 is about to be obtained.

Lucky! Ralts is a great pokemon to have. Looks like we have a lot of the same pokemon in our parties and we both started around the same time! It'll be interesting to see how each of our games turns out!

Hmm, I might actually be able to do this as my emerald is a fake ( ebay is really annoying sometimes), so keeps deleting my save file bacause it's 'corrupted'. Sigh. However unless I never turned it off and always kept it on charge, I would never be able to defeat Wallace but I could do atleast a few gyms. I could say I did well (if I did)...

Well, still going strong with no deaths yet.
Since I last posted I've beaten the Dewford gym, beaten all the trainers on Slateport beach and between Slateport and Mauville. "Skipper" and "Fenrir" evolved too. I also caught an Electrike and named him "Volt". I'm currently training for the Mauville gym.

Edit: Just beat Mauville gym. First casulty was "Sumo".

Started my Emerald Challange yesterday... for the 10th time now. >.< Last run I managed to get very far, but was promptly beaten by Wallace and his troll Double Team Ludicolo :(

Anyway, I rolled the dice for my starter (as I always do) and got the freakin Treecko AGAIN. Sigh. I'm currently standing in front of Trick Master House or whatever it's called. My team is:

- Hito the ;253; lv. 22
- Maki Eins the ;296; lv.20
- Petunia the ;043; lv.13 (freshly caught)
- Jellycool the ;072; lv.8 (fodder)
- Karpz the ;129; lv.6 (fodder)

Graveyard: Paris the Zigzagoon (lv.4-15), Silence the Whismur (lv.7-15), Ms. Fodder the Poochyena (lv.3), Badyena the Poochyena (lv.4)

edit: Oh, and if someone was wondering, my rules are:
- only one Pokemon per route/cave/city, including duplicates, and only for the first time you visit it, so no route 201 because you were there before you had Poke Balls
- if you faint the first Pokemon in any given route/cave/town, you can't get another one, even if it was a duplicate
- fainted Pokemon are considered dead and is put in a Box named Graveyard
- random starter (dice roll)
- no healing items, including berries
- can buy only 1 Poke Ball per city
- no legendaries
- no link trades
- no glitch abuse
- each Pokemon must be nicknamed

Thought I would try a Ruby version Nuzlocke after a successful Gold one (although I know this one will be a lot more difficult).

-Normal Nuzlocke Rules
-All Pokémon must be nicknamed
-Duplicate species of anything previously obtained is forbidden
-Dead Pokemon to be permaboxed
-No purchasing healing items; can only use what is found/given

Started out with Mudkip (Axio), which I don't think I've ever done before. Trained him to level 9 before fighting May and her Treecko. After obtaining the ability to actually capture Pokemon, I caught a Zigzagoon (Ziggy) on Route 101 and a Poochyena (Grimm) on Route 103. Now I'm training up my Pokemon more before continuing past Oldale Town.

;258; Axio, level 9
;263; Ziggy, level 2
;261; Grimm, level 4

None yet!

After I trained everyon up to lv. 10 I went to Route 104 and caught a Famale Marril with Huge Power Who I nicknamed Marina. When I trained her I up to lv. 8 I went to Petalburg Woods to try and catch a new Pokémon, I found a Cascoon who was unfortunately KO'd by a crit from Marina's Tackle. After I trained Marina to Lv. 10 I went to Route 104 and began training some more.

After arriving at Mauville City, I started preparing myself for the Electric Gym. I grinded my team a bit - as a result, Hito (Grovyle) learned Leaf Blade and Maki Eins (Makuhita) and Petunia (Oddish) evolved. I was now feeling pretty confident about my team, so I challenged the Gym and beat it without much trouble.

After that I headed on Route 111, on which I caught Goldia (Goldeen). For whatever reason I thought it would be a great idea to try her out. Soon after leveling her to lv.21 I learned that she (and her evo) doesn't learn any water attacks (not even Water Gun) till lv.38. Sweet. Day Cared her right after. Next Routes were anything but exciting, so I'll skip to Fallarbor Town. On the following Route I caught Lotella the Lotad, which was my first Water type worth training. Put her on a team right away, and managed to level her to lv.26. She didn't get a chance to live any longer than that though, because Maxie's Zubat OHKOed her with a critical Wing Attack. Seems that being at full health and having a level advantage just wasn't enough to save her from a quick death. :( But I had yet to experience the worst.

I entered Lavaridge Gym with Maki Eins taking the lead. He steamrolled about 95% of Pokemon in the building, including Flannery's 3 mons. She then send out her final Pokemon - Torkoal. No worries, I thought, I have 3 Bulk Ups under my belt and Thick Fat to sponge her Fire attacks. Unfortunately, Lady Luck apparently had some personal vendetta against me that day, and after a few VERY uneventful turns I ended up with 14 HP paralyzed Hariyama on my side, and ~50% HP Torkoal on Flannery's side, ready to scorch my butt with Sun boosted Overheat. I immediately switched to a fodder, which died to said Overheat, then saced another one to a following Body Slam. My choice was now limited to Petunia, Hito and Maki Eins. I sent Petunia, hoping to cripple the turtle with a quick Sleep Powder. Of course it missed, and of course Overheat burned my ugly little flower to crisps. Panicked, I sent Maki Eins back, scoring some cheap damage with Fake Out. Not wanting to lose my best mon, I switched to Hito, which took Body Slam for about 50% HP. I retaliated with Leaf Blade, and Torkoal used another Body Slam, which left my Hito with 1 HP (!). Praying to God, I clicked Leaf Blade again, hoping that Overgrow and Miracle Seed will do the trick. They didn't. Torkoal lived with a silver of health left, and finished my Grovyle with another Body Slam. I was ready to ragequit at that point, but then I remembered that Maki Eins still had his priority Fake Out. Thankfully for me, the paralysis didn't kick in, and the burning turtle of hell finally bit the dust. I won the match, but at what cost? Crying over my lost companions, I headed to the next city, ready to solo my father's Gym with Hariyama only...

And miraculously, I succeed. Using my newly obtained Surf, I headed to Route 115, which I was carefully avoiding up to that point. I managed to capture a Tailow (now Swellow), which I named Pandora. Saved the game at Rustboro City.

Next stop - New Mauville (hoping for a Magnemite!)

Welp, I've done a ton since I last posted (that's because I had only just started). Last night I captured a shiny Numel (yay!), trained a lot, endured pretty intense battles against both Flannery and Norman (but everyone survived, fortunately), and added a Swablu (Draconia) to my team. I spent today utilizing my ability to Surf to traverse Routes 105 - 109 as well as rebattling a bunch of trainers thanks to the trainers eye thing. I want everyone to be on at least level 40 before I fight Winona... So right now, I'm about to take the long, long walk on Route 119.

Playing through this challenge with LeafGreen.

And I’ve already lost my first attempt, and way to early... I've notice a pattern of letting my lower level pokemon faint while I'm distracted (instead of switching them out), I need to stop that.

I name all my pokemon in a OCD fashion, so that rule won’t be a problem for me.

My additional Rules:
Duplicates don’t count as first pokemon for that route, even if I really want them.
No trades, no legendaries.
No buying of healing items, can use found/gift ones, but revives must be sold as soon as possible.
I will not be going back to amend route 1, where I had no poke balls. That just feels like it would be cheating.

Attempt 2:
Randomly selected Squirtle - Bloo (M)

Current Team:
Squirtle - Bloo (M) Lvl 10

Edit: (didn't feel the need for a new post just yet)

Since then:
Route 2 - Ratatta fainted before I could capture it
Viridian Forest - Caterpie - Buggy (F) Lvl 5
Buggy evolved!
Buggy evolved!

Team:
Squirtle - Bloo (M)
Butterfree - Buggy (F)

Edit 2: Since we're still on the same page...

Beat Brock and Bloo evolved! If you pokemon evolves after a trainer battle you get you badge, then it evolves, then you get the TM…
Just remembered… Oak’s gonna expect that I catch x-number of pokemon for this and that… suppose I could catch and box perma em… I’ll not name them (ugh) and set them in a special no use box…
Route 3 - Spearow - Lucy (F) Lvl 6
Mt Moon - Zubat - Bitey (F) Lvl 8 (Are they all going to be female?)
Route 4 - skipped catch attempt
Beat Misty
Beat Gary/Stupid
Route 24 - Pidgey fainted
Route 25 - Caught Weedle - Zip (M) Lvl 8
Zip Evolved, holding off on Lucy’s evolution
Zip Evolved
Route 5 - Bellsprout - Bellboy (M) Lvl 15
Route 6 - Meowth Fainted
Vermilion City - Magikarp - Koi (F) Lvl 5
Lucy fainted aboard the SS Anne…
Bitey Evolved
Beat Stupid
Diglett’s Cave - Diglett - Digger (M) Lvl 21
Route 9 - Sandshrew - Sandy (F) Lvl 13
Route 10 - Voltrob - Lux Lvl 16
Switched Zip w/ Luz to max types
Bellboy evolved
Route 11 - Drowzee Fainted

Team:
Squirtle - Bloo (M)
Butterfree - Buggy (F)
Golbat - Bitey (F)
Weepinbell - Bellboy (M)
Diglett - Digger (M)
Voltrob - Lux

Reserve:

Done a lot in two days. This may or may not be the only thing I'm doing with myself. I evolved both my Swablu and Marshtomp before fighting Winona, who was fairly easy to be (her Altaria used to be a nightmare in past playthroughs, but I had a Swampert with Ice Beam). With my new-found freedom to Fly, I went around Hoenn, re-battling trainers and doing random stuff. Finally I decided to progress through the game, and ended up in Lilycove. On Route 121, I caught Duskull (Shaun) who became my 6th and final team mate. I made a quit pit stop in Lilycove before taking on Mt. Pyre. I evolved Shaun into Dusclops while there. After getting the Red Orb (that's the one you get in Ruby, right?) I battled May for the final time in Lilycove. My team trumped hers easily.
Then I rolled through the Team Magma hideout (although I did almost have an issue with a critical Selfdestruct from Electrode almost KOing Axio, but otherwise all was well).
I finished up there before Surfing to Mossdeep. I leveled up a little bit before taking on Tate and Liza. They were easy; I'm thankful that in R/S moves like Surf only hit the opponent and not your partner. That being said, I used Axio, Shaun, and a little bit of Raiju in order to take the twins down.
Then went to Shoal Cave and caught a Spheal (Reginald), my new Dive/Rock Smash/Strength slave.
I'm now about to dive down to the Seafloor Cavern for my penultimate Team Magma encounter.

I'm just going to fast forward from my last post all the way to the Pokemon League. I obtained my 7th and 8th badge, no issues, saved the Hoenn region, and was ready to take on my final challenge (with no deaths so far!)
I spent a while leveling up in victory road before feeling ready to fight the Elite Four.
Sidney was the easiest; I managed to take down all of his Pokemon in one hit, by using both Humphrey and Restler. Phoebe was a bit annoying, especially since I was using Raiju's bite and her Dusclops knew Earthquake. But I slowly took all her Ghosts down with Draconia and Axio. Glacia posed no issues either; Restler and Humphrey handled her Ice-types easily. The only issue I had with Drake was one of his Flygon's which kept using Sand Attack so none of my moves hit... Otherwise Axio's Ice Beam took care of them.

Finally, it was time to fight Champion Steven.
First it was Skarmory vs Humphrey... It went down with one Eruption, but didn't leave without badly poisoning my Camerupt.
Then it was Aggron vs Restler... One Vital Throw and it was down.
I countered his Armaldo with Axio... Surf kept leaving it with one HP and Steven kept using Full Restores, but my Swampert finally took him out.
Cradily was more difficult... Restler's Vital Throw just wasn't doing the job quickly enough, but I managed to KO it with slight damage.
Steven's Metagross fell quickly to a few Earthquakes from Axio.
Finally it was Claydol vs. Axio... He was weak so I had to withdraw him and stall for time. I sent out Shaun who burned Claydol...but Steven ended up using a Full Restore. He kept using Light Screen/Reflect, so it barely took any damage. It took a combined effort from all my team to take down Steven's Claydol (with Axio barely hanging on with 6 HP as it landed the finishing Surf on Claydol).
And with that, I became the Champion of Hoenn.




;260; Axio, level 58
;310; Raiju, level 56
;297; Restler, level 57

Linoones pick up is a very useful ability for this nuzlocke playthrough providing me with potions rare candies and x items to use or sell.

Had a bit of bad luck with my LG Nuzlocke. I lost my starter, Charmeleon, to a miss and Hyper Fang critical from a trainer's Raticate near Vermillion, then within about 10 minutes, lost both Geodude and Butterfree, my other two main team members, to an incredibly lucky Magnemite.

Beat Gary on the boat, now returning to Cerulean to face Misty.

Got to fallabor town today. No loses although I managed to catch 4 new pokemon. Im currently training my Swablu to be my dragon/flying type pokemon. I plan on using Dragon Dance/Aerial Ace/Dragon Claw/Fly maybe? I used machop for a while then realized he wasnt very good for my team. Im quite happy with my teams progress although if I am lucky enough to find a trapinch or cacnea I might replace one of my pokemon. I need a grass type so cacnea would be nice. Now Swablu is gone so I need to hope I find a Bagon or Trapinch soon. I miss Snuggles. Also caught the Solrock that killed Swablu....not a good trade off.

Just started a Nuzlocke on Sapphire. I kicked around the idea of doing one on LG or FR (since I'm more familiar with them and more interested in the additional challenge), but the only problem I could see with that is meeting the minimum Pokedex requirements for all the items the assistants hand out. With only one poke per route, I would think it'd be about impossible to meet the requirements for most of the items, much less for the national dex after the Elite Four. So - Sapphire.

Started with Torchic just because that's the one that's selected by default at the start. Named her Jane. I didn't even consider whether the first trip through routes 101 and 103 should count or not until I saw it mentioned just now on a post on this thread. I didn't count them because I didn't have any pokeballs. To me, the game doesn't even really start until I go back to Littleroot and get the Pokedex and the balls, so...... Went back through after the return to Littleroot and the first encounter was a level 2 Wurmple on 101. Tried to catch it at full HP and it broke out pretty easily, so I gritted my teeth and hit it with Jane's scratch (she was lvl 7 at that point) and knocked it down into low yellow and caught it easily. Female - named her Chloe (she's since evolved into a Silcoon, which was what I was hoping for). Went up into 103 and caught a lvl 2 Poochyena - male, named him Roger. Then along 102, keeping my fingers crossed for a Ralts or a Lotad, but ran into a lvl 3 Zigzagoon instead. Caught it easily - male, named him Ben. Just went out to the start of 104, hoping for a Wingull, but ran into a Taillow instead. Female - named her Sylvia. And that's that so far. Roxanne's going to be a challenge, since I haven't found anything that can do much damage to rocks and there aren't any more good opportunities, though I guess I can evolve Jane up to Combusken.

I'm not counting duplicates, just because I know that if, for instance, I got out on route 120 and the first thing I found was a Zigzagoon, I'd be furious. I'm not putting any limitations on PC visits or items (other than revives, obviously) - I figure they're there to be used.

I'm trying to figure out what to do once my team's full. I'm tempted to play it that at that point, the only way I can catch another at all is if I trade it for one that's already on my team. I'd like to see how it works out if I never store any of them. The only ones that would even go into boxes would be the ones I'm going to trade in to my team, and they'd only be there for as long as it took me to get to the PC and release whoever I was replacing.

I'm not sure what to do if I find a shiny, but I think I'll go ahead and catch it anyway, then trade it out to my Ruby game. Unless it's the first one on a route - then it's going on my team. I'm going to have to catch Kyogre, just to advance the story, but it's not going on my team. I'm not sure yet if I'll trade it out to Ruby - I'm sort of tempted to just release it. I never use ubers anyway, and I think it makes more sense in the game to release it.

We'll see, I guess. I was casting about for something interesting to do with the games, so I'm looking forward to this.

Just started a Firered Nuzlocke run - we will see how this goes!

Pallet Town: Selected Squirtle and named Sheldon
Route 1: Rattata - didn't have pokeballs
Route 22: Rattata - caught and named Minniemous
Route 2: Rattata - defeated
Viridian Forest: Weedle - caught and named Stiletto
Route 3: Magikarp - bought from salesman and named Karpi
Mt. Moon: Zubat - forgot it was Nuzlocke and beat it
Route 4: Spearow - accidentally killed by Stiletto
Route 24: Pidgey - caught and named Hurricane
Route 5: Pidgey - caught and named Hurricane2

Unfortunately Minniemous died in Mt. Moon to that dumb Magnemite trainer - anything would have died to Thundershock and it was the unlucky one. Also Hurricane died while fighting Hurricane2, but luckily they were the same thing so I can replace him!

Current team:
;008; Sheldon
;015; Stiletto
;129; Karpi - left at the day care
;016; Hurricane2

EDIT @ THE NEXT DAY:

So I have my final results. No I did not finish the game... I ended it after beating Blaine because I was using VBA and you can't save on it and I wanted to go to sleep. Final team was Sheldon the Blastoise and Stiletto the Beedrill, along with some pokemon I didn't train.

first try at a nuzlocke challenge

Basic rules, no repels and no duplicates (however first pokemon on a route rule starts when i gain access to pokeballs)

doing it on Emerald.


Progress:
started with Treecko "Ruth", went up and fought May, won and Ruth is now level 7, unlucky crit stopped me catching a Poocheyna on route 101 but caught one on 103 and named it Nizzie. after training Nizzie to level 5, i advanced into route 102 and caught a wurmple by Nizzie's skill, the wurmple is now level 6 and called Keroon. I have my fingers crossed the Keroon will become a Silcoon.

Rooster:

Treecko "Ruth" level 7
Poocheyna "Nizzie" level 6
Wurmple "Keroon" level 6

Just started my first Nuzlocke on Ruby.

Mudkip is my starter. His name is Swampy. I picked Mudkip because I never played through 3rd Gen with Mudkip before (I beat Emerald with Treecko and Torchic lines before.)

Route 101: Wurmple. No Pokeballs

Route 103: Zigzagoon. No Pokeballs

Route 102: I caught Wurmple and I named him Mothman. Hoping it evolves into Cascoon and Dustox, if it doesn't die first. ~.~

In a battle with a wild Seedot, Mothman evolved from Wurmple to Silcoon.

Route 104: Caught Zigzagoon and named him Lynam. I was really hoping for Taillow or Wingull. Hopefully I'll get a flying type soon.
Lynam dies in my first battle with him, against a trainer's Seedot. (Frickin' Bide, man) R.I.P

Petalburg Woods: Caught Taillow and named her Tella.

Route 104: In a double battle, Mothman evolved from Silcoon to Beautifly

Rustboro Gym: NOOOOO! Geodude killed Mothman, I forgot he was 4x weak against Rock. Very sad. R.I.P
Defeated Geodude with Swampy, and defeated Nosepass with Tella. Received the Stone Badge.

Alright, I started a Nuzlocke on my Emerald version, and I am ready to kick some butt!

I began in Littleroot, and I met my rival for the first time. I decided to break the rules and go into the tall grass, but the professor yelled for me to help him. I looked in his bag, and with my eyes closed, I picked my first team member. Out came Luke, the Mudkip. With only 2 Tackles, the wild Zigzagoon was history.

I went back to The Professor's lab, and I got Luke back, and went to find my rival. I found him shortly, and defeated him easily. I went back to the lab, and got a Pokedex and some Pokeballs. I was anxious to meet some new team members, but first I had to stop at my house and get the Running Shoes. Afterwards, I scavenged the grass.. and a Poochyena popped out. I weakened him, and caught the Poochyena, and named him Cody. As I went through the routes, I got a Zizagzoon named Sally, and a Lotad... that I can't remember the name for! I went to Petalburg and saved before my father's gym.

Current Team:

Started a LeafGreen Nuzlocke the other day...let's see how this goes.

-Normal Nuzlocke Rules
-All Pokémon must be nicknamed
-Duplicate species of anything previously obtained is forbidden
-Dead Pokemon to be permaboxed

I started off with Charmander (Izardchar) and began my adventure. I took down my rival, Green with minimal issue. I came across a Rattata on Route 1, but had no PokeBalls yet...so no Pokemon for me. After picking up Oak's Parcel, I delivered it, got some free Pokeballs, and started out for real.
North of Viridan City I capture a Pidgey (Geotpid) and to the west I captured a Rattata (Tatarat). I spent a while leveling them up before heading to Viridan Forest. There, I captured a Caterpie (Freebutter) (I'm a little upset it wasn't a Pikachu) and then left to grind some more. Freebutter evolved twice until I got myself a Butterfree. I fought Green on Route 22, grinded some more, bluhbluh.
I'm currently making my way through Viridan Forest.

Trainer: Red
Badges: 0
Pokedex: 6
Time: 6:23
Current Location: Viridan Forest

;004; Izardchar, level 13
;016; Geotpid, level 10
;012; Freebutter, level 11

alright, i have never tried one of these, but it seems like a fun thing to do! so i'll do it on my Emerald! I found a cool little Brazilian Soccer Player name generator, so i'll try that out as a way to name the pokemon! :D

Alright, so I started and named myself Leo.

My starter is Mudkip and I named him Swampaldo.
Route 101: Ran into a Zigzagoon, but had no pokeballs...
Route 103: Ran into a Zigzagoon yet again, but had no pokeballs...yet again. Swampaldo almost fainted in the rival battle, but we managed to pull through!
Went back and got the pokedex and pokeballs :) looks like pokemon catching will start tomorrow in the morning!
Route 102: Ran into a Lotad! Looked like I was going to get my second pokemon of the game! But then...Critical Hit! Lotad fainted! :(
Entered Petalburg with a single pokemon and did all the events in the city. Left to catch my second pokemon of the game!
Route 104: Wild Taillow appeared! This time I did catch it and named it Taillao!

Started a Nuzlocke in Sapphire, Currently training for Norman. I can't really figure out what my Team of 6 should be for the long run though. Swamps and Karps have been consistent for my Team, and Dudes has been fairly powerful. Torks has also been a major consideration as well as Rosels (I guess you can figure out the nickname pattern by now). To be honest that leaves Pigs for keeping good synergy, but at this point Pigs has no major reason to stay on the Team (no real advantage).

Here's the Team (with reserves) so far:

;260;;264;;269;;277;;294;;130;;311;;315;;075;;322; ;324;;327;;041;;325;

Casualties (R.I.P.)
;267;;271;;304;

Silks was Tomb'd against Roxanne's Geodude; he just wasn't prepared for a Rock Move, and Absorb just didn't do the trick. Lombs lost it when I brought him out to Train, wound up killing himself while fighting a random Trainer's Goldeen. As for Aggs, rest her soul she was eaten by Archie's Sharpedo and its Crunch attack (the Crit didn't help). Was ready for using Aggs against Slaking too; now it looks like Torks, Dudes, and Karps are going to be the big players (with a possible Swamps in the wings).

I've decided to go back in time and do a Nuzlocke on FireRed with the following rules:
-All nicknames (As a theme all are related to Heavy Metal songs/Bands)
-Repeat clause (Can skip a pokemon if already own a member of its family
-Poison clause (fainting due to poison outside of battle doesn't count as death, during battle does)

Here is my short list of accomplishments so far:

-Choose ;001; as my starter (nicknamed Dr Stein after Dr Stein - Helloween)
-To Viridan City (and back)
-Back to Route 1 to catch a ;016; (Icuras after Flight of Icuras - Iron Maiden)
-Side track to Route 22 for a ;019; (Tyr after the band)
-Into Viridan Forest for a ;010;.....that got knocked out dammit

So I just started a FR Nuzlocke after being bored and unable to do much else (I hate changing my game's internal clock, but I needed to wait until the day to evolve my Budew for my Poison Monotype of Pearl).
I am basing everything based upon my girlfriend and her friends here at college, so I am playing as a female character named Anna and my rival is Kevin (an old ex).

SPECIAL RULES:
1. No Masterball.
2. No Repels
3. No Breeding
4. No trades, in game or otherwise, except for trade evolutions.
5. Special Dupe Clause
-If I run into a duplicate pokémon as the first wild pokémon, I hard reset (if I didn't save anytime near, tough). I then enter the grass and try again. If I run into another dupe, I hard reset again. The third time is the final time - catch, kill or flee, whether or not it is a dupe - for the route.

Started out with Ben, the Charmander. From there, I did the intro stuff before catching a Ratata named Derek on route 1, a Pidgey named Ashley on route 2 and a Mankey named Al (short for Alice) on route 22. I beat my rival with three level fives and a level 7 and then went into the forest, where I caught JoHanna the Caterpie who I am now training in the forest.

Team:
Ben - ;004; - Lonely - Lvl 8
JoHanna - ;010; - Quirky - Lvl 6
Al - ;056; - Bashful - Lvl 6
Derek - ;019; - Rash - Lvl 6
Ashley - ;016; - Serious - Lvl 6

Been a while since I updated this. Or played for that matter. Oops.
Since last month the only thing I was able to do was beat Brock and Misty. I also added a Magikarp (now Gyarados), a Bellsprout (now Weepinbell) and a Diglett to my team. I also lost Tatarat when attempting to capture the Bellsprout.

I recently finished up at the S.S. Anne so now I'm training on Route 11 to prepare for Lt. Surge.

I have done quite a bit since my last post.

Continuing through the forest, JoHanna (Caterpie) evolved twice as I raised everyone to level 12 for the gym. Al (Mankey) solo'd Brock and I proceeded to Route 3, where (after two resets) I caught Austin the Nidoran Male. We continued down the path and I raised everyone but Derek (the Ratata) to level 15 for Mount Moon. Fully expecting a Zubat or Geodude, I was surpirsed to be greeted by a Paras, Ariel. I have not trained one since my first Fire Red run (and then I only used it to beat Misty), so I was glad to have it on the team.
We got through Mount Moon (choosing the Dome Fossil, upon request by my girlfriend) and went forth. Muza the Spearow was caught on Route 4 and we battled my rival and then went up Nugget Bridge with no problems. Routes 24 and 25 had me catching Stormi the Weedle and Misako the Oddish (no Abra hax here folks) and we then proceeded to train everyone, during which Ashley evolved. Everyone was at 18 or 19 when I went into the gym and Ariel solo'd it, amazingly enough, thanks to some lucky Bullet Seed strings. I then proceeded down Routes 5 and 6 where I caught Callie the Meowth and Tiny the Meowth. Tiny may actually be raised, as it has a usable nature and I may need its movepool...
After battling the trainers on Route 6, I got to Vermillion and went to the S.S.Anne, where I caught Sarah the Magikarp. I went to Route 11 and got Darren, the terribly natured Drowzee (I seem to be catching a lot of Jolly pokémon in all of my games, as of late) and I bet the trainers, levling my team to 20. I also caught Honey the Diglett and went onto the S.S.Anne to actually beat everyone, which I did quite well. Austin learned Horn Attack at 22 (during my rival battle against Kevin, actually) and I then evolved him so that he could learn Thrash as well. We beat everyone and I have taught Cut to Ariel and plan to train more before taking on Surge.

I started a nuzlocke on emerald about a week ago. I was using pretty much standard rules.
-nickname all
-catch only first in each area
-etc.

I was doing fine and all until watson.
My team was as follows at the time.
Josie (beautifly) 24
Missy (Mightyena) 24
Bigmouth (swalot) 26
Swampthing (marshstomp) 26

Bigmouth was caught just outside slateport and had become my most facorite. I have never used a gulpin or swalot before and he was really kicking butt. So I go in with the thought that I would clear watson with swampthing and have no problems. somewhere in the fight he got weakened and I sent in bigmouth to take on watson's manetric, Bigmouth was taking him down like a champ but had gotten low on health as well, I knew I could withstand one more hit and manetric would die for sure, I got critical hit by a shockwave. This unfortunate hax made me almost lose it, I was so attached to this guy I added a wimp clause...I know. I used a revive I found in the game, not purchased and revived him. I vouched for the integrity of the challenge I would not do this again if I can help it, haha.

My team is as follows now.
Batman (golbat) 24
Swampthing (marshtomp) 30
Josie (beautifly) 28
Missy (mightyena) 27
Bigmouth (swalot) 28
Just added, Benny (numel) 15

Not too many significant updates to report, but I have a feeling it will be a while before I post again.

Anyway, after rebattling a lot of trainers using the VS. Seeker, I was ready to face Lt. Surge. Triodug evolved into Dugtrio while fighting the gym trainers. Surge wasn't all that difficult; the most worrying part was when Pikachu's Static paralyzed Triodug, but it didn't end up affecting my fight against Raichu.

I then blindly made my way through Rock Tunnel. Didn't catch any new friends though. Once I made it to Lavender Town, I fought Green in the Pokemon Tower, just because I could. I wanted to catch a Gastly right then, but remembered you can't until you have the Silph Scope. So I fought my way through that one Route west of Lavender to arrive in Celadon City.

After doing a few little odds and ins, I'm currently in the Rocket Hideout. I want to get through here before fighting Erika. Actually I just want Izardchar to be a Charizard before I fight her.

Alright I'm starting a nuzlocke on my Firered. I am using the repeat clause (no repeats of pokemon I already have unless they're deceased).
So I did all the boring beginning stuff and eventually got my starter, Aqua the Squirtle. I delivered the parcel and got the pokeballs. I ran into route 1 and caught JoJo the Rattata. I then went to route 22 and caught Carla the Mankey. While grinding everyone to level 7, a level 3 pidgey appeared and I sent out Carla, thinking it would be easy. The pidgey got a crit and Carla died. That stunk. Anyway I went viridian forest and got Felix the Caterpie. After battling trainers Felix evolved. Then he evolved again. I got out of the forest, grinded to level 11, and then destroyed Brock with 5 bubbles from Aqua. I went to heal and then saved for the day.

Team:
;007; Aqua lv.13

After everyone was 25, we went for Surge. Not that it was needed, as Austin took everyone out with no problems. Ariel evolved in the training, of course.
After that, we headed over to rock tunnel, catching Derek II (Ratata) and James (Ekans) on the way there. We went into the mountain and caught Katrina the Onix (who will make a wonderful Steelix at some later time) and trained the team some more. We got out and ran to Celadon to get Tyler the Eevee. I then trained him against trainers (replacing the newly evolved Al), including my rival Kevin, before getting him to 30 and evolving him into a Jolteon. I also caught Shawna (Ekans) and Brice (Growlithe) on routes 8 and 7. After getting through Rocket land and easily beating Giovanni with Ariel and Austin, I rook Ben, Ashley and JoHanna to handle Erika. We then headed to the pokémon tower where I surprisingly got Roseann the Cubone (I was actually kinda hoping for a Gastly, since I have ground covered nicely at the moment...). After beating the rockets, Fuji gave me the pokéflute. I caught Garth (Snorlax) on 16 and got the Super Rod on 12, where I then fished for Rachel (Horsea). I then got Amy (Venonat) on 13 and flew back to Vermillion to get Essence the Shellder. I am trying to figure out what I want to do with my team at the moment and may not update in a while, as I should probably get back to the poison monotype.

Hmm, I've done a lot since a few days ago... So after clearing the Rocket Hideout (Gio's Kangaskhan actually proved to be a bit difficult), I went to the Celadon Gym. The trainers posed no challenge, and in the process of battling them, Izardchar involved in Charizard. I took down Erika without breaking a sweat.

After that I went to the Pokemon Tower where I captured a Gastly (Gargen), boxed Geotpid, and immediately started training Gastly. It evolved into a Haunter after a bit, and I finished fighting my way through Pokemon Tower. With the Pokeflute in hand, I went and battled the Snorlax blocking cycling road, and added the sleeping giant to my team.

With that, I took the long way to Fuchsia City, training up my two new teammates. Once in Fuchsia, I went to the Safari Zone, got Surf, and the Warden's Gold Teeth. Once I felt leveled up enough, I took on Koga with Gargen (because I taught it Psychic, hoohoo) and Laxsnor. It was funny trying to watch Koga poison my two Pokemon that couldn't be poisoned.

Anyway, took him down with minimal issue. The first thing I could do with my newfound ability to Surf was catch a Slowpoke (Broslow) from Fuchsia City. I also went and got a Hitmonchan (Chanhitmon) from the Fighting Dojo. I then proceeded to spend forever training them (they were only on level 25, while the rest of my team was around 40).

Unfortunately, due to inattentiveness and carelessness on my part, I ended up losing Chanhitmon while re-battling a random Biker (after I had just devoted a butt ton of time training it). On a positive note, Broslow evolved into Slowbro.

With a now empty spot on what was going to be my final team, I decided to train that Eevee I forgot I picked up from Celadon City. I plan on evolving it into a Jolteon once I train it a bit more.

And that's where I currently am at in my game. Ayup.

Oops, postan again because I'm speedan through this.

So I spent forever levelan up Veeee, evolvan it to Jolteon once it reached level 30. Then I leveled it up some more. Once it was on par with the rest of my team, I decided to take on Silph Co. I sped through it relatively fast, beatan all the Rockets and whatnot. My rival Green nearly gave me some difficulty (I thought I was gonna lose Veeee to a crit Water Gun from his Blastoise; it was pretty close). After I took care of him, I fought Giovanni. He was easy with Broslow and Laxsnor on my side.

Then I decided I might as well take on Sabrina, although I've always been a bit frightened by her Gym. Fortunately, she wasn't as hard as she has been for me in the past. With Veeee and Dosgyara's Bite attacks, and Gargen's Shadow Ball, I was able to defeat her and earn the Marsh Badge.

After that, I headed to Cinnabar Island, fightan all the trainers on the two water routes to level up. I got the Secret Key from the Pokemon Mansion and trained Broslow more for the battle against Blaine. I also got an Aerodactyl from the Old Amber.

Fightan Blaine wasn't really hard. Broslow's Surf took care of everyone. The only time it got tough was because of his Arcanine's Bite... When things were gettan down to the wire, I just sent out Dosgyara to finish off Arcanine.

With my 7th badge in hand, Bill came to sweep me off to the Sevii Islands. I did all the quests there, takan advantage of the stronger trainers. I finished my business there, and now I'm currently about to fight Giovanni for my 8th and final badge.

By the next time I update, I'll probably have hopefully beaten the Elite Four.

Ok so im doing a Leaf Green Nuzlocke under the usual rules:-
* You can only catch the first Pokemon you find in any area (route, cave, city etc.). You can't catch any more. Even if it's one you already have.
* If a Pokemon faints, it's dead. You have to release it or permanently box it.
* Give all your Pokemon nicknames so you grow attached to them.

So after all the introductory stuff i received my starter Broast the Charmander (who's final evo is known as BROKENZARD by the competitive community). Afterwards beat my rival whom i named Dimwit. In Route 1 ran into a Rattata so had to kill it. After delivering the Oak's parcel like a child slave I received my Pokeballs. So went to Route 2 and caught another (ugh) Rattata naming it Jerry. Now onto Route 22 and i encountered a Mankey! Happily caught it and named it Big Show. After levelling up Broast to level 14 and Big Show to level 11 i proceeded to destroy my rival Dimwit for the second time. And now im heading to Viridian Forest.

Team

;004; Broast Lvl 15 (Charmander)- Metal Claw/Ember/Scratch/Growl

;056; BigShow Lvl 11 (Mankey)- Low Kick/Karate Chop/Scratch/Leer

So I'll soon be starting my own universal challenge nd before I do that I have two questions 1. if one of my pokemon dies can I catch the same pokemon but somewhere else and 2. can I catch a pokemon in the same cave or somewhere else but on different levels? Edit that also goes for the safari zone can I catch a pokemon in different zones or areas

It's honestly all up to you and how difficult you want to make the challenge for yourself.

I normally play with no duplicates so I don't end up with a team of Rattata or something. But I've seen people play with duplicates and replace lost team mates with the same species they found elsewhere. that would have been so helpful in my Diamond Nuzlocke, bluh

And I personally count caves as one place... I think the only time I didn't do that was in a Silver version Nuzlocke.

So long as it follows the basic 2 Nuzlocke rules, you have the freedom to do what you'd like!

I have seen it done both ways. Personally, I do every area as separate. However, others do not. It is your choice, really.

Am I at a good level for this point in the game? If not, how high level should I train to before continuing? How high level should I train to for the 4th gym? Suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you for the suggestion. :) I don't remember Emerald that well because I haven't played it in a while, so any help is appreciated. I will use Elsie in the battle, and have Felix and Nuria as backup.

Started an Emerald Nuzlocke. I got a Mudkip, and I named it Mudkipz (shocker, eh). While Torchic is my favourite, I feel Mudkip will be better suited for the challenge as I'd prefer a more durable Pokemon (Blaziken can go down quite quickly).

Anyway I didn't do much, all I did was rescue Professor Birch then made my way to Oldale town. I can't catch any Pokemon in the first route because that Zigzagoon counts as the encounter of the route. Now I'm gonna go buy some Pokeballs and catch my second in the route above Oldale, and faceoff against Brendan (I'm a guy, but I always choose the girl whenever I do a challenge)

Current Team:
Mudkip (Mudkipz) Level 5.

Well, in my Emerald nuzlocke challenge, my team and I finally made it to Lavaridge city after a detour to Meteor Falls and an intense battle with Maxie. Flannery's Pokemon were high level, but they went down easily with the help of Elsie's powerful Bubblebeam. Now, it's time for us to explore the desert and take on the 5th gym!

Been awhile since I updated. I actually got slaughtered by Brawly, so I only had a level 3 Zigzagoon and a Zubat which both died at Slateport. So I started again and skipped Brawly. I just beat the third gym and I'm clearing all the trainers on the way to Vertunturf before progressing on my adventure!

Current Team:
Sweeny (Gloom)
Mudkipz (Marshtomp)
Dawg (Poochyena) - In the day care. I plan to only use this thing if my whole team loses, so I have a backup.

In my Emerald nuzlocke, I have just obtained my 5th gym badge. However, my victory came with a price. Norman had sent out his Slaking, and it had just been hit by a Bite from Nuria, my Mightyena. It barely hung on, however, and killed her with a critical hit Facade, thus ignoring the severe attack cut I had given it earlier. Fortunately, Elsie, my Azumarill, avenged her with one swift Bubblebeam. Nuria will not be forgotten...

After the intense battle, I noticed that my team had a massive flying weakness, so I added Kai the Electrike to my team. I hope he will survive and do well! :)

wait, for nuzlocke, it is OK to count forest/cave/mountain as separate?

what about potting? the rule says that fainted pokemon are counted as dead, but what are the rules on healing at PC or buying pots to keep alive?

and what about first pokemon i come across but i fainted them instead of catching them? do i lose my chance to capture a poke the entire area, or do i keep trying?

Yes, mountains/caves/forests are separate.

Nope, you can't even heal them with revives or by using the PC. If they faint, they're dead. No exceptions.

If you knock out your first encounter, that's the only one you get. No second tries.

hold on. either you're reading my post wrong or i am phrasing it wrong.
let me try again on the healing part.

BEFORE THEY FAINT, can I buy pots to keep them alive?

My entire team got slaughtered by Norman and his bellydrumming Linoone. I have Pokemon in the PC as backups in case something like this would happen, but it's only a Marill level 15 and a Lilleep level 20. It's going to be a long road to grind them to a high enough level to face him.

Besides the desert and the Trick House, they should have really provided more new trainers for you to gain levels off of

^ Ouch, at least you had some reserves just in case

Okay so I just started a nuzlocke in emerald and I picked Mudkip because I've never used a Swampert before. I'm using the standard rules, so one pokemon per area or route. If I faint it or run out of pokeballs to bad. And if a pokemon faints it must be put in the R.I.P box and never be used again. Unfortunately I couldn't ninja my way through the grass to Oldale town or May so no pokemon for me just yet. I've just beaten May.

In my Emerald nuzlocke, it has been a long, eventful two days for my team and I. After the loss of Nuria, my Mightyena, we worked hard training Kai the Electrike until he finally evolved. We made it to Fortree City, where we proceeded to train more, until something very exciting happened. While fighting a wild Kecleon, Felix evolved into Blaziken! Now that he had evolved, we took on the 6th gym and won easily. We traveled to Lilycove city, where we fought May and emerged victorious. The last thing that we did over these eventful two days was travel to Mt. Pyre. There, we paid our respects to Nuria, the Mightyena who unfortunately passed away during the 5th gym battle. We found Team Aqua, but they made off with the Red Orb before we could stop them. Now, onwards to Route 123!

Hi nuzlocke fans. I'm new to this but have started one on Ruby that is really going slow compared to a normal game.
So far I died before the first gym twice (nutz)
I'm trying again and hope to gawd I can get a flying type or a good water type so I can fly or surf.
I'm in Slateport now with 2 badges
Pyro (torchic) is lvl 18
Dusty (dustox) is lvl 18
Belle-Horn (whismur) is lvl 13
Zigaziggy (guess? yay, zigzagoon) is lvl 12
Nyn-Jadda (nincada) is lvl 16
on standby is
Aron (steelia) at lvl 11
In the graveyard is
Flittrerr my Beautifly (at the Dewford gym)
I'm really excited about having Nyn-Jadda and I'm being very careful not to lose her.
I could use some advice on stategies here. I know I need to get my levels up fast to go on.

So, I've never done a Nuzlocke challenge before. But after seeing so many people posting about it, and signatures, I got curious. And I thought "This would be a good time to start playing some of my old generation games again." So, grabbed my Emerald game, read up on the rules, and decided to start up on my first Nuzlocke :D
Since it's my first go, I'm starting off fairly basic. I'm making it to where I can use, and buy recovery items (except revives. Once a Pokemon faints, it's bye bye)


- ACTUALLY STARTING -

Mmmmkay, so I started my journey off. Heard Birch crying like a wuss, so I went and saved his tail with a Treecko. I decided to nickname her, Juniper (Any body wanna guess where I got that from?) I went up route 101, didn't see anything. Went to route 103, leveled Juniper to 7, just so I could legitly pwn May. Juniper beat her Torchic no sweat, and got to level 8 in the process. Healed up at the Poke' Center, and went back to Littleroot. Got some Pokeballs, the Pokedex, and started back up route 101. This is where Nuzlocke fully kicked it (since I can use Poke' Balls now.) I encountered a Poochyena. Juniper scored a Crit, and Poochyena went down.. I was kinda sad, cause I wanted to use a Poochyena really bad. So, I went to route 103 to try my luck, and what do ya know.. Another Poochyena! I was feeling better about this, so I used absorb. That got it about halfway, so I threw my Poke' ball. That was when I caught Feisty, my beloved Poochyena. Starting level grinding Feisty till' 5. After that, I healed up, and went to Route 102. Encountered a Lotad (malem for once.) Caught him easily, and named him I Iz Wet. I wasn't to sure if I wanted another grass type, even if he is part water, so I didn't level him yet. Battled all the trainers here. Feisty had some really close calls, but she managed to send those kids crying in the end. Healed up at Petalburg, and did that whole stupid Wally stuff. Decided that I probably won't use Lotad all that much, so I boxed him. Went to Route 104, and encountered a Wurmple as my Pokemon there. Caught it, no sweat, and named her Just A Bug. I actually let Just A Bug fight a few trainers, and she managed to survive due to inflicting Poison a few times. Due to her luck, she level up to 7, and evolved into a Silcoon. After I fought everyone, I healed, and started for the Petalburg Woods. Found a Shroomish here. Ended up catching, and naming her Shroomie!! Battled everyone in the woods, and got to the Team Aqua guy. Wanted to let Feisty fight against his own kind, so I let him have this fight. A few Howls, a couple of Tackles, Feisty later walked away victorious. Exited the Woods, and saved my game.


Juniper Lvl10 ;252; Feisty Lvl9 ;261; Just A Bug Lvl7 ;266; Shroomie!! Lvl6 ;285;

Once I'm done with my Black Nuzlocke challenge (at the last gym atm) I'll be starting one in ruby. I'll edit this post, probs starting tonight, so keep an eye peeled! :) i'll start tonight even if I dont finish black.
EDIT: since my black nuzlocke challenge failed, *Crys* jk :P, I'll be starting it earlier then i intended. I rly hope this one doesn't screw itself up because of my rival like the last one...
EDIT
Ok I started it! :D My Character name is "HAPPY" in recognition of that being my first pokemon characters name, seeing as ruby was also my first poke game. I was 6, and it was my first video game ever, so needless to say I was pretty happy. My mother didn't want me to get Ruby, but my brother bought it so XD yeha. I put in like 200 hours on him, but for some reason hes not there today so..:( But I also named my Emerald file Happy (more recent one) as recognition, but I lost that!! DX and I had like 100something in my pokedex. hoping I find that...ANYWAYS! I picked Mudkip and named him marshy (also part of first poke game) I don't count the first poke in that route until I have pokeballs so yeah. Oh, heres my restrictions!
~~~Rules~~~
-Basic rules, except the first pokemon doesn't count if I havn't received any pokeballs yet.
-No healing items in battle, but I'm allowing it outside. That killed me horrendously in my Black nulzocke. I was stuck in the middle of the grass with all pokes nearly dead. xD so I'm allowing healing. That also means I'm allowing buying of items. in my Black version I had like 9103851035130581 $ XD jk but you get my point.
-No trading at all.
-No revives, nor max revives. and I'm being more strict on myself about ressetting. If I do (unless it wasn't on purpose) then I have to sacrifice a pokemon I've caught.
Ok, thats about it.
So I went and trained to level 8 before I beat up may, then returned to the town to get my first pokeballs. With this, in route 101 (route lol xD) I caught a zigzagoon that I name sydney, in memory of Sydney the Patrat. xD not using her though. her attack went up +1 after four levels. ..sorry, but no. I then proceeded to catch a Poochyana dued in the route above Odale that I called Bruno, named after my best friends pet dog. Less ferocious, but yeah. :P In route 102 I found a Wurmple, which I disregarded and killed while training Bruno. I saved and quite after I got Marshy to level 10 and Bruno to level 6.

21st January 2012, 11:12 PM
Okay so lots-o stuff happened...well not that much. So I went and got Skipper to beat May's treeko and then I got some pokeballs. Next I headed to route 102, and faced a Poochyena. I was less than pleased, (I was hoping for a zigzagoon) I named the Poochyena Paula. Half way through the route on a trainer I realized I had my battle style changed to Set, I decided to keep it as set. I eventually faced the one Lass girl at the end of the route and nearly lost. She had me on the ropes, Skipper almost dead, Paula in the low yellow and the Shroomish had just a bit too much HP for Skipper to faint in one hit. I knew that one of my pokemon was going to die. I sent in Paula and she took the absorb that would have killed Skipper before weakening the Shroomish with a tackle and fainting because of the Shroomish's tackle, but weakening the Shromish enough for Skipper to faint it. After being forced to go to the gym if I wanted to leave Petalburg and helping (watching) Wally catch a pokemon I went to route 104, caught a female Wingull and named her Sora. I then trained her up a bit and I am now heading for Petalburg woods.

Current team:
(M);258;(Skipper) lvl 10
(F);278;(Sora) lvl 7

Dead:
(F);261;(Paula) lvl 3-5
Killed by a Lass who's name I can't remember on route 102

My poor Nyn-Jadda! Taken out while grinding on route 109 by the trainer pair Mel and Paula at lvl 29. *Sigh*, now I have to start leveling one of my other captures so I can get thru New Mauville (current area to finish).
I now have 5 badges and my my current team is:
Trapinch (female) named Vivian (rte 111) lvl 21
Roselia (male) named Ro-Zanauld (think terminator Ah-nold) (rte 117) lvl 18

Belle-Horn my (female) Loudred lvl 28, caught in Rusturf Tunnel as Whismur at lvl 6
Dusty my (male) Dustox lvl 28, caught as a cascoon in Petalburg Woods at lvl 5
Corpsys my Shedinja lvl 20, as my Nincada, Nyn-Jadda evolved into Ninjask
Lyme-Lyte my (f) Electrike lvl 13 UT, on rte 110
Hunka-Hunk my (m) Machop lvl 14 UT, on rte 112
LorettaLyn my (f) Torkoal lvl 15 UT, on Fiery Path
Karen my (f) Spinda lvl 14 UT, on rte 113
Isabell my (f) Zubat lvl 20 UT, in Meteor Falls
The Egg from the lady at the hotsprings (? Not sure if this is a 'legal' pokemon so I have boxed it for now)
Magmacartr my (m) Numel lvl 18 UT, at Jagged Pass
Krakenna my (f) Tentacool lvl 34 UT, rte 115 (Wow, I didn't expect something at that level)
Gullie my (f) Wingull lvl 10 UT, rte 106
Duracell my Voltorb lvl 26 UT in New Mauville.
I didn't run into anything on rte 108 that I didn't already have so I'll go back when I have the good rod to fish for something (anything but Magicarp please!)
I've have a few close calls, especially with "Dad" in Petalburg I'm really glad that I bought out the store for potions since I had no fighting types and I used my incredible Zigaziggy for most of it (his headbutt was very useful).
I really have a lot of grinding to do to get through New Mauville, I can't seem to get beyond the second sliding wall before I must retreat and heal up. With the death of my beloved Nyn-Jadda I have had to teach cut to another poke, Ro-Zanauld.
I also could not believe my luck when I fished up Goldeen in Petalburg City with the old rod instead of a Magicarp. I've gotten some before, but never this early on. I was actually planning to take the M-carp to daycare so I could evolve it quicker.
I'm off to grind some more I'll update you all once I get to the Weather Institute.

Is the Safari Zone considered one area for the Nuzlocke? Or is subdividable?
I'm about to go into the Cave of Origin, can I catch and permabox Groudon? (I know I can't use legendaries, I'm not sure if that also means no catching either).
And what level should I be aiming for when I go up against the elite 4 (I'm thinking 70)

Time for a Nuzlocke challenge! I'm actually on my second day, and I just got my second badge, so here's the rundown.

I started with Bulbasaur, and my mercy rules are that I am allowed to use any items I find, but I can only buy Pokeballs-- not even Great Balls and Ultra Balls. My second mercy rule is that if I am unable to catch a Pokemon the first time I go to a location, I may return later to catch one, and I may choose another if I don't want a duplicate-- more for the sake of variety than anything else. Seems like a lot, but I keep getting frustrated when playing these, and the point is to have fun. If I'm not having a good time, then what's the point? So I'm cutting myself some slack.

So far I've lost only two Pokemon, and it was to that darn kid with the level 14 Spearow after Pewter City. Funky Fists the Mankey and iThrust the Kakuna fell to it. I've just arrived in Vermilion and am about to board the St Anne with the following team:

Tubby (Ivysaur)
Fang (Raticate)
Islington (Pidgeotto) (cookies for the ones who get the reference)
FairyDustr (Butterfree)
Thornking (Nidorino)
Countess (Zubat)

The following Pokemon are waiting in the wings:
Jack (Spearow)
I Got Pie (Abra)
Moddish (Oddish)
Kippers (Meowth)

Thankfully I haven't used any of the revives or rare candies I've found so far. I took a lot of time to grind before taking on A**face and Misty, so I beat both of them fairly comfortably.

So...I have done a lot...
Where to begin...
I cleaned up the routes left before the safari zone. My rules are that you get one attempt per zone, but you have to do it all in your first run. So, zone one saw me catching Amy II (Venonat), zone two saw Timothy (Exeggecute), zone three saw me failing to even get to the water to fish as a Doduo assaulted me and fled, and zone four saw me catching Meghan (Ryhorn).
After finishing cleaning up routes, I did a team assessment. I needed to add a water type and I also wanted to bring in Timothy. Thusly, Ariel and JoHanna were benched for Timothy and Essence. After cleaing up Cycling Road (and refighting a few on it), I got Timothy to 37, where I evolved him. I then took out the fighting dojo with him and picked up a Hitmonchan, 2.0. I wasn't going to use it until I saw the modest nature. I had an open slot, since I didn't want to keep Ashley around once Ben evolves, so I stuck him in, training him up to speed at the pokémon tower to get as many Sp. Atk. EVs as I could. I trained Essence up a bit and evolved her and raised everyone else a level or two. I also spent time at the slots to get Ice Beam, Thunderbolt and Shadow Ball for Essence, Tyler and Austin.
I took on Koga's gym and won pretty easily. Koga fell to Timothy's Psychic and Austin's Dig and I got the ability to surf. I decided to quickly stop at the power plant to see if I could pick up a back-up electric. Imagine my surprise when that back-up is an Electabuzz. Having never trained one (I have done Pikachu and Voltorb mostly, except for recently where I am using Jolteon and Magnezone in my two Nuzlockes), I decided it would make a nice back up.
I have been going through Silph Co. on and off. I am also at the slots, wanting another Ice Beam (for Austin) and another Shadow Ball (for Tyler) before Sabrina and Giovanni. And I am trying to think if there is anything better than 2.0 I could add that would not just be a back up.
Speaking of which, my backup team is complete, finally! Not that I want anyone to die, but if they do, I am prepared. Brice ;058;, Rachel ;116;/Taima ;061;, Ariel ;047;, JoHanna ;012;/Amy II ;048;, Meghan ;111;, Maginnis ;125;.

So, I started a LeafGreen nuzlocke, and I'd like to know if this is a good team for the 1st gym.

Team:
;002; (M) Monty Level 16
;016; (F) Maximum Level 14
;015; (M) Pigsley Level 14
;019; (F) Farah Level 14
;012; (M) Aizen Level 14

Also, if you get the references I used for Maximum and Aizen's names, you get a cookie.

Maximum Ride.

Anyway it looks like it'll just be an Ivysaur sweep. You should be fine. It's just a Geodude and an Onix after all and you're like 2-4 levels higher and not weak to Rock.

I'm just starting a Nuzlocke on my Leaf Green game.

The rules I'm following:
-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.

I started earlier this evening and now I'm just about to head into Mt Moon. I'm really not liking my current team, so hopefully I get something good in there :P

So far in my adventure:
-Got Bulbasaur, named him Ichiro
-Caught Pidgey on Route 1, named her Haruka
-Went to Route 22, and landed a crit on the Spearow at the wrong moment. Missed catch :(
-Caught another Pidgey on Route 2, named her Sakura
-Promptly lost Haruka to a crit from a wild Rattata (her first battle she was one-shotted. so sad)
-Defeated Rival with Sakura
-Caught Weedle in Viridian Forest, named her Sumire
-Defeated Brock with Ichiro
-Lost Sakura to a crit from a trainers Pidgey
-Caught Spearow on Route 3, named him Ikki

Team:
;002; Ichiro, Hasty, level 16
;015; Sumire, Lonely, level 10
;021; Ikki, Bold, level 6

Dead:
;016; Haruka

Update:
-Caught Zubat in Mt. Moon, named him Yuichi
-Caught Rattata on Route 4, named her Maria
-Defeated Rival, but lost Ikki and Maria both to critical hits :(
-Lost Yuichi to a trainer on Nugget Bridge, again to a critical hit
-Missed catching a Metapod on Route 24, this time I landed the critical hit T_T
-Caught Bellsprout on Route 25, named her Iris
-Defeated Cerulean Gym, but lost Iris to one of the trainers... TO A CRITICAL HIT

I feel like I suck at this, but there's really not a whole lot I could do differently. Sure, I could have used potions, but every one of them was still in the green prior to the killing blow : /
Oh well, let's see just how far Ichiro can get on his own. Onwards to Vermillion City!

Team:
;002; Ichiro, level 27

Oh, hey everyone. After about half a year of hiatus, I'm finally getting back to my Gale of Darkness Nuzlocke. Since there aren't any specified rules for Colo/Gale, I've made my own ruleset.

1-If a mon faints, it's dead and permaboxed.
2-Snag everything, and if you can't, tough luck.
3-Only 1/2 Poke Spot mons.
4-If a Shadow Pokémon faints before being purified, it cannot participate in any battles and must be purified through cologne/purification chamber. After being purified, it is considered dead.

I'm currently up to Shadow Pokémon Lab, and I'm training everyone so no one dies.

Current Team
;197; Sol-Level 20
;216; Terezi-Level 20
;166; Vriska-Level 20
;180; Woolie-Level 19
;363; Polly-Level 19
;322; Matthew-Level 18

Snagged 10/11 (Spinarak got critted...)
Most recent Snag: Matthew

My team is on rotation and it is, in order of capture:

I also have an eevee called Teddy, but I'm not using him since I'm not counting gift pokemon.
Also Kelvin the Magikarp, who is currently being raised by that daycare guy.

are you allowed to use in-game trade and gift pokés?

Dangertrout
12th March 2012, 2:22 PM
are you allowed to use in-game trade and gift pokés?

The only mandatory rules are:
-You can only use the first Pokemon you encounter in each route/town/city/cave.
-All Pokemon must be nicknamed. (Actually, I think this one is also optional, but I've never seen anyone NOT use it)
-If a Pokemon in your party faints you must box/release it and not use it anymore in your challenge.

So if you want to make use of gift pokes outside of rule #1, that's up to you. The way I play for those instances is:
-if I have the pokemon required for the in-game trade (still alive and was the first encounter for the route) I may make the trade but can't catch anything else on the route of the original pokemon or get anything else in the area the trade was made
-gift pokemon count towards first pokemon of the area. (So in celadon I have to choose between fishing, surfing, game corner prize or eevee)

Good luck Marigold!!

It's been a while and I haven't been working on it much, but I may as well update while I still remember what happened. So, update:
- Caught Gastly in Pokemon Tower, named her Misao
- Cleared Pokemon Tower
- Missed catching Snorlax on Route 16 (Why didn't he use rest?!)
- Caught Snorlax on Route 12, named him Iwanbo
- Caught Venonat on Route 13, named him Aoshi
- Caught Ditto on Route 14, named it Kamatari
- Caught Venonat on Route 15, named her Toki
- Caught Doduo on Route 17, named him Shigure
- Suzume died to a crit from on of the bikers' pokemon
- Iwanbo died... well that was my fault. I was annoyed at losing Suzume (Flareon is one of my favorite pokemon) and not making the best decisions.

So now I'm making my way down to... Fushia? along the bike path, then I have two gyms to clear. I'll probably update again once those are done.

Team:
;003; Ichiro lvl 37

Just started my first ever Nuzlocke on Emerald!

My Rules (besides the standard two):
1. Only up to 3 healing items per battle (as that is what most Gym Leaders and the Elite 4 use).
2. Nickname all Pokemon based on my real life friends/family (even CLOSER relationships!).
3. If the first Pokemon seen in the area is a duplicate, I can find another Pokemon until it is one I do not have.
4. I must use the same number of Pokemon as the Gym Leader during Gym Battles.
5. Any "dead" Pokemon will instead be permanently boxed (to remember them by :().
6. Legendaries may be caught but not used.
7. Shinies may be captured at any cost (even if it means breaking the rules), but cannot be used if done so while breaking the rules.

My Current Team:

;253; "Jer" : Level 25, Hasty

;277; "Jess" : Level 25, Timid

~

;183; "CJ" : Level 4-13, Adamant (DEAD)

Everything was going smoothly until my battle with Brawly. I had all three Pokemon left, and all he had was his Makuhita. All Jer needed to do was use one more Bullet Seed... but Brawly healed his Makuhita, along with it getting a berry heal. With Jer down to 9 HP, I could not afford to lose him. I sent in CJ... to take the fall. I healed up Jer while CJ was out, and I ended up winning the battle... But at the cost of a dear friend. :(

So I started this on LeafGreen today. Picked up a Charmander for my starter, named it Pyronic, and moved ahead. On Route 1 I caught a Rattata, which was unfortunately female because I wanted to name it Joey...anyway I named it Vermana, and moved on to Route 22, where I caught a Mankey and named it Sonya. I then headed up to Route 2 and caught a Pidgey and named it Skye. I then headed into Viridan Forest to catch my fifth Pokémon, Beetox the Weedle, and saved there. Hoping to level these guys up before moving on to Pewter City.

;019; Vermana (Female) Lv. 3

;056; Sonya (Female) Lv. 4

I trained up quite a bit, then got through Viridian Forest with ease using Skye and Gust. I then managed to defeat Brock using only Sonya to win the Boulderbadge. Moving through Route 3, I catch a Spearow which I name Aletta. I'm probably going to end up replacing Skye for Aletta, but I'm not sure yet. Then I head into Mt. Moon, only for disappointment. The odds say that I'll run into a Geodude or Zubat, either of which I can work with. I found...a Paras. Yeah, a rare Pokémon that isn't even that good. Chances are I'll make it an HM Slave, but for now, it's in my party in place of Vermana. It's name is Acacia.

I just toasted my team at the Elite 4 on my Ruby Nuzlocke (definately underleveled, lol) So as I lost all 6 to the first two, I declare my Ruby Nuzlocke over.
However, my Emerald is still in progress. I have 6 badges and just picked up Dive from Steven, so I started to troll the sea bed on rte 124 hoping for a Relicanth, but found a clamperl instead. My lead pokemon, Thor took it out in one Bite, meh, I really didn't want one anyways. Still want to level everyone up to at least 50 before taking on the Sootopolis gym...almost there...

You know how in various Nuzlockes there’s always a part in the comic/story/log where things go from bad to worse?

I snagged Carvanha and Shroomish (Killa and Shitake) and did some grinding on Mt. Battle before finishing up the stuff at the lab. I was convinced that Shroomish evolved at level 21, so I battle Naps with the expectation that she would evolve.

It didn’t happen.

I was left with two mons on the team who could withstand multiple Shadow Rushes from Delcatty (Brianna). I think at some point, Polly almost got killed in that fight. But I persevered and made it through Lovrina’s team without losing a mon.

The next point in the game is the ONBS hostage crisis, which in normal gameplay is kind of a joke. I went around Pyrite and did some battles and got some Poke Spot stuff in the attempt to find a Wooper. By the time the hostage crisis came up, I was SOL. I went in with a team of six: Sol, Terezi, Woolie, Polly, Matthew, and Shitake (who was a Breloom at this point).

I slowly made my way up the floors.

Right before the top floor, Matthew got killed by a Misdreavus’ Psywave. I wasn’t entirely sure whether or not to stop going up the floors and go train, or to keep on going. I chose the latter. Woolie died on the top floor because I failed to heal him on the turn he needed it the most. In retaliation, I snagged the killer (Kat the Ralts). For whatever reason, I decided that I was ready for Exol.

I get to Exol and on the first turn, his Girafarig crit-oneshots Shitake with Confusion. This leaves me with three mons. Later, Exol stalled with his Raichu. The thing kept on using Seismic Toss so many times that I had failed to remember that it was an Electric type, and that Polly was out on the field. A Shock Wave happened and Polly went down.

Eventually I snagged Mawile (Tamara). I used all of my healing items in that fight, lost four members of my team, and still didn’t have a Wooper.

Please don’t make the same mistakes I did.

Team:
Sol ;197;
Terezi ;216;
Blake ;297;
Cherry ;037;
Kat ;282;
Gabe ;195;

I recently started a Fire Red Nuzlocke run, and I am up to mt moon on it.

I started by picking my Squirtle which I named Koops (from paper mario), and I easily beat gary and set out on my journey, quickly doing the boring errand of bringing Proffessor oak his package. It was a boring errand, but I had no choice in doing so because there was an 88 year old man having a spaz attack on the only road north to viridian forest, and the shopkeep refused to sell me anything until I completed the errand. I brought Oak his package, and caught my first member, Tess the Rattata. After training Tess and Koops a few levels, I caught Nicky, my Mankey on Route 22. I also caught Karen, my Pidgey on Route 2. (I forgot to name Pidgey, but I refer to it as Karen and I will rename it to that when I get to the name rater.) I decided to train, but while training, Nicky died. I deposited Nicky into the death box in my PC and continued training. Once I had decided that we were ready, I went into Viridian forest and beat all the trainers with relative ease, with Beth, my new Weedle, evolving fully into a Beedrill. I did a bit more training, then took on the Pewter gym. Koops dominated it easily, being a water type.

I beat all the trainers on Route 3, and caught my Nidoran Male, which I named Barry. I healed in the Pokemon Center, and went into Mt Moon, underestimating the harsh dangers ahead.

I went north, then west, catching my new teammate Zach the Zubat and beating a bug catcher fairly easily. I then went east after obtaining a few items. I went into a different part of Mt Moon, beating a Team Rocket Grunt without much trouble, and getting a star piece, which I will sell later.

This is where things get nasty.

A lass, who was standing next to a signpost, challenged me to a battle. She had a level 14 clefairy. I led with Tess and used quick attack, which didn't do much against the Clefairy. It used sing, and hit, despite it having terrible accuracy. I called Tess back after it got hit with a few doubleslaps while sleeping (I was trying to get it to wake up), and sent out Koops. The clefairy used Sing again, and it connected this time too! That sucks. I tried to get Koops to wake up, but it took a while. Koops eventually beat the Clefairy at the cost of some potions. I then yelled "IT'S CALLED SLEEP CLAUSE!!!!!" at the lass and proceeded. A Super Nerd then challenged me to a battle and sent out a magnemite. A magemite with a very evil look on its face.

I led with Karen. In hindsight, this was a terrible decision. I had Karen use Gust, which did hardly anything against the Steel/Electric Pokemon. The Magemite used Tackle, which didn't do much either. I assumed that the Magnemite, being only level 11, didn't know ThunderShock yet. I had Karen use Quick Attack, which did slightly more. But then, the Magnemite used ThunderShock. Oh god no.

To my relief, Karen lived with 2 hp. I then switched out Karen quickly, and sent in Zach, my new Zubat. The magnemite used ThunderShock again, KOing Zach. Zach was gone, but sacrafices had to be made. I sent in Beth, as it had the most special defence out of all my Pokemon that weren't weak to electric. I couldn't use Poison Sting, as Magnemite is unaffected by it, so I had to use Fury Attack. It did a decent amount of damage. But then, the Magnemite used Metal Sound, which took down my special defence harshly. I kept using Fury attack, but after 3 Metal Sounds against Beth, she looked very vulnerable. I called Beth back in to restore her Special defence, and sent out Barry. The Magnemite used ThunderShock on Barry, which brought it down to half HP and paralyzed it. I was just glad Barry survived. I sent Beth back out and after a few more Fury Attacks, the Magnemite finally fell. The mechanic then sent out a Voltorb, which I was sure didn't know any electric attacks or SelfDestruct yet. It seems I was right, since the Voltorb only used Charge and Tackle, and Beth beat it with ease.

Moral of the story: Never underestimate Magnemite.

My current team:
;019; Tess, level 13
;007; Koops, level 14
;015; Beth, level 13
;016; Karen, level 13
;032; Barry, level 8

Yesterday I spent a good few hours training my team. Terezi is now a beastly Ursaring. I decided to leave Cherry and Gabe at level 25 so I would have a chance at snagging some mons.

I critted the Roselia I had planned to use on my final team. >< And the Shadow mons suddenly got tougher; Pineco put a dent in Cherry. BUt the worst part of the day came on the steps of the ole' Phenac Colosseum that no one cares about thanks to Realgam Tower. I'm up against a Nuzleaf and Shadow Swinub. Swinub's confused, the Nuzleaf's used Dig, and I'm praying that the little pig hits herself in her confusion.

Dig leaves Cherry with 2 HP. Swinub uses Shadow Wave.

I now realize that I cannot keep my fire types alive in this game.

I deposited her in the DREAMS box and went on to the colosseum. I snagged Spearow with relative ease.

My brain shat bricks when I fought the Grimer. One non-crit Shadow Rush did 40 damage to Terezi. Y'know, 40 DAMAGE TO AN URSARING 7 LEVELS HIGHER THAN THAT BALL OF SLIME. But then I caught him.

To be honest, I'd rather have a Fearow on my team than a Grimer or Muk. However, a few things changed that decision for me. First, the Grimer turned out to have a neutral nature (I think that's the first in the game, too). Second, he ended up getting a godsend move as I was purifying him. His first relearned move was Shadow Punch. Now, let's think about this for a sec here.

This Grimer has a neutral nature, high Attack IVs, fits the general trend of my team being defensive, and gets a no-miss move that covers one of his weaknesses. Yes, I'm highly considering Dexter for a permanent spot on this team.

Team:
;197; Sol, M (Lonely) Level 30
;217; Terezi, F (Brave) Level 30
;297; Blake, M (Brave) Level 30

I've restarted my Ruby Nuzlocke, here's hoping that I don't self-destruct at the E4 again, lol!
My rules:
No repeats
1st (new) pokemon of the area can be captured, if it feints - too bad
Shinies and legendaries can be caught, but must be permaboxed (unless it is the first of that area to be encountered)
Cannot buy revives - revives found in game ..... debating on a special 'anti-wipeout rule' - can use only one in a gym leader/E4 battle (thoughts?)
Must raise 1st 6 caught to level 25 before switching out for a fresh pokemon (unless one faints)

So far I have made it to Dewford town, my captured pokemon are:

Mana, my Treecko caught Rte 101, lvl 5. Now at lvl 1
Nuzdot, my Nuzleaf caught as a Seedot on Rte 102, lvl 3. Now at lvl 15
LinZig, my Zigzagoon caught Rte 103, lvl 4. Now at lvl 10
Bremish, my Shroomish caught in Petalburg Woods, lvl 5. Now at lvl 15
Wurcoontox, my Dustox caught as a Wurmple Rte 104, lvl 5. Now at lvl 13
Cadjask, my Nincada caught Rte 116, lvl 7. Now at lvl 9

In waiting:
Murredloud, my Whismur. Caught in Rusturf Tunnel at lvl 6.
Abradabra, my Abra. Caught in Granite Cave at lvl 8.
(Yes, I did!!!! I was soooooo excited when it happened. I had Cadjask at lvl 12 in the lead, three steps in I encounter Abra. I new I had no chance with Cadjask (no real moves, and too slow), so I threw a great ball, crossed every fingeer and toe and prayed.....the ball rocked....rocked....rocked....ding! Yeah!! My roomate looked at me as if I had lost it, lol ^__^

;070; Barboa Level 30 male
;134; Namigami Level 30 female

I would like to know somthing.
A) Is it posible to get a Datini from the game corner, even though I already have Namigami from the same area?
Edit:
Alright...So I got myself a Pokemon to take the space of King. :( I am still very upset over the lost of her, but I need to go on! I am still wondering if I could get Datini from the Game Corner.
Well, anywho, my newest team member is Kanja the Docile male Hitmonchan in Saffron City (at level 25) ;107;.
After morning the lost of Omlit, Tachi, Minimole, and now King in the Pokemon Tower (and getting KingBoo, the Careful male Gastly at level 17 [boxed]) I head off to...kill Snorlax.
-On route 13, I catch Venny the Hardy female Venonat Lv 24 [boxed...for now]
-I get a Leaf Stone and Evolve Barboa. Now, Chaos is the only one who has yet to evolve. =-= two more levels! TWO MORE LEVELS!
I'll edit this again, after I go though the Safari Zone, so, wait for me. =3

;015; Boris level 34 Male
;071; Barboa level 33 Male

;040; King level 5 to level 31 :(
Death by that f*ing Giovanni's f*ing Kangaskhan's f*ng Mega Punch! (One Hit KO)

Oh no! Poor King!! :( I know how you feel, I lost my Kirlia in my Sapphire nuzlocke just after it evolved (I forgot about Brendan's Grovyle having Pursuit. I'm a terrible trainer!!)
For your first question: It's up to you how to treat game corner / gift pokemon. (though you should have decided BEFORE the run :p ) Personally, I treat game corner and the eevee as same location, so I have to choose one.
For a replacement for King.... If you want another normal type, I really like Raticate for playing through the game. Otherwise, I would go with the Geodude to take out steel types that pop up. Namigami could do the job, but would be at risk against Magnetons.

The Safari Zone gave me new happyness!
3 out of the four!
Area one: My first incounter was a Chansey...who ran way after three poke balls. No Pokemon for Area one.
Area two: My first incounter was an Execute. I am able to catch her, and, being my most favorite character EVER, I name her Eggwoman. xD She is Level 25, Sassy. I will be putting her in my team, taking Barboa out. (My team was anti-Phychic happy).
Area three: Happy! My first incounter was a Rhyhorn. I am able to catch her, and name her Nessie. She is Hardy, and is Level 25. She is replacing Boris.
Area four: ...I fish with a Super Rod...came out on level 16...Lax...Male...DRATINI! =D I know, very rare, 15% incounter rate, but I was able to incounter him. I Caught him, and named him Kibou. He Replaces my HM Slave, Penny...but know I need to grained him. O,o

So, I will level up Nessie, Eggwoman (I cannot type this without laughing), and Kibou to level 32...ish...and I'll be fighting the next gym...Koga...
Happy Level uping.

I'm missing some version exclusives to complete my dex in LG, so I decided to playthough my FR as a Nuzlocke so I can later pillage it for the missing 'mons.

Rules:
- Only catch the first pokemon seen in an area. (If I see one before I get my pokeballs, it counts as a missed catch)
- Fainting = death (placement in "Death" box)
- I'm not allowed to buy revives or use them outside of battle. (I can use the ones I find lying around during battles)

New friends!:
;007; Blaster / Calm / Pallet Town (L18)
;056; Minky / Bashful / Route 22 (L10)
;016; Amelia / Naughty / Route 2 (L12)
;010; Flutters / Hasty / Viridian Forest (L11)
;039; Cupcake / Timid / Route 3 (L7)
;041; Dracula / Lax / Mt. Moon (L9)


So this time I started with Squirtle. Missed my Pidgey on Route 1 because I had no pokeballs yet. Then the usual beginning to the game, nothing spectacular happened. Defeated my Rival and Brock, now I'm working my way through Mt. Moon.
Blaster evolved into ;008; when I defeated Brock
Flutters evolved into ;011; then ;012; during some trainer battles on Route 3
I think I'll get everyone up to about level 10, then just focus on getting my Pidgey up there, since I want to use her against my rival when I get to Cerulean. Not sure who else I want to train for the near future though.

Well, things didn't work out exactly as planned. I was making my way through Mt. Moon, and while fighting against a youngster I lost Amelia (Pidgey) to a critical Quick Attack from a Rattata. I was so sad. I had every intention of using her for both the rival battle and Cerulean Gym. Oh well :(
Other than that, nothing too spectacular happened today. I defeated my rival in Cerulean, as well as Misty. Now I'm in the S.S. Anne, soon to fight my rival once again. After that I'll train the lowbies on my team to about 15 and take on the Vermillion Gym.

Valerie(Shroomish)-Level 14

So, i started a Leaf Green Nuzlocke in an attempt to Nuzlocke all 5 regions.

Rules
1. Nicknames, of course
2. 1 pokemon per route
3. no duplicates (if i run into a pokemon i already have, i can try again if i want)

My starter for LG is Spyro the Squirtle, and after the Delivery to oak we began our Journey. First pokemon on Route 1 was a rattata named Purple. Meatball the spearow came right after on route 22. After grinding my 2 newbies upto level 7 we took on Rival ASH. Purple had a tough time against his pidgey as i thought it was level 8 instead of 9, but he survived. Meatball then took on Bulbasaur with no troubles and missed a level up by 5 xp. Avoided Route 2s patch of grass for now and headed straight into viridian forest. Found myself a weedle named Butters. Being level 6 at catch, Butters Immediately evolved after its first trainer battle which might help its weakling status. About half way through the forest, i headed back to heal my pokemon and save for thew night.

Team
;007; Spyro lvl 9
;019; Purple lvl 9
;021; Meatball lvl 10
;014; Butters lvl 7

@ ShinyMisty, That's really a shame about your Victreebel. I found mine to be really useful, and it sucks when you lose something to Selfdestruct or Explosion :(

Things are going relatively well now. ^_^ Sabrina evolved into ;064; along the way. I defeated my rival on the S.S. Anne, and Vermillion Gym. Did a lot of running around, collecting items and such. Now I'm clearing trainers on the way to Erika and the Rocket Hideout in the Game Corner. I don't really like the Rocket dungeons, so things are slowing down for me right now >.<

It has been a while since I last posted, mostly because I was busy, and because training my Pokemon took a while, but here is what happened since last time

-I trained all my Pokemon to about level 45 or 46 in preperation for the battle against Blaine
-I beat Blaine with relative ease using a bulk up strategy. I had Bruce use Bulk Up 6 times against Blaine's Ponyta (Not against his Growlithe because it has roar). I taught Bruce Protect expecting his Ponyta to use Bounce, but while I was using Bulk Up it didn't use bounce once despite the fact that bruce has weak defence and is weak to flying attacks... Stupid AI. After using bulk up alot, Bruce pretty much swept Blaine's team, getting a 1HKO against Rapidash and Arcanine.
-Bill took me to the Sevii Islands. Nothing really happened there. On Kindle Road I caught a Ponyta and named it BronysSuck. The only other thing that really happened was that I decided to teach Koops Hydro Cannon. The experience from the trainers was nice I guess.
-I went into the Viridian Gym and beat the trainers and Giovanni easily, using Koops and Barry's Surf attacks.
-On the way to the Pokemon league, I ran into Gary. This fight was pretty challenging, and Karen almost died. I sent Karen against his Venusaur, and Got Karen to use Fly. The first time I used Fly it missed because I have horrible luck in these games. I tried to use Fly again and it hit, doing just under half HP. While I was using Fly, the Venusaur kept using Growth. Then the Venusaur used Razor leaf, and put Karen down to 1 HP. That was really Close. I switched to Vera, and finished it off with Psychic, trying not to think of what could have happened to Karen. In Retrospect I probably should have been using Aerial Ace, But I wanted to use fly for the extra damage.
-I made my journey through the Victory Road, not encountering any major problems on the way to the Pokemon League.
-I got to the Pokemon league. My team was at about level 48-49, so I decided to train them all up to level 58. Below is the team I will be taking into the Pokemon league with me.


;009; Koops
Level 58
-Surf
-Ice Beam
-Hydro Cannon
-Bite

;018; Karen

-Aerial Ace
-Fly

-Double Edge

-Psychic
-Giga Drain
-Sleep Powder
-Toxic

-Brick Break
-Hidden Power Flying ~65 Base Power
-Earthquake
-Bulk Up

;135; Edgar
Level 58
-Thunderbolt
-Shock Wave
-Thunder Wave

Any Advice is appeciated

@ ricedonut All I have to say is good luck. I'm being more risky, leaveling all my pokemon to level 55...
And I'm STILL trainging!
Chaos and Eggwoman are level 55!
3 down, 4 more to go.
Where would be a good place to train my Dragonair, Hitmonchan, Vaporeon, and Muk? (I want to VS Seeker, because I get money for it, too)

Good luck to you too on the elite 4! and what attacks does your dragonair have? I trained Karen, Vera and Bruce on the karate guys near the spa on one island, and the others near swimmers near cinnabar island or the bird keepers west of fuschia. I hope this helps

-I checked that I had enough items and was fully healed, and then went into the first room of the elite four

-I beat Lorelei pretty easily mostly using Edgar, but I used Koops for the Jynx. The jynx was annoying because it kept using lovely kiss, but it didn't do much damage with its other attacks because koops is a tank

-Next I fought Bruno and I was doing pretty well, until I sent Karen against his Machamp. While I was trying to heal, his Machamp kept using Scary face on me. I got Karen to use Aerial Ace, but the Machamp outsped me and used Cross Chop, and got a Critical hit. Karen died. I sent in Vera to use psychic on the Machamp and end the battle. R.I.P Karen ;018; Level 4-58. I Promise, your death was not in Vain.

-Next was Agatha. I led with Edgar, predicting that she would send out her Golbat first. She did, and it was an OHKO with Thunderbolt. She also sent out her Arbok, which went down easily. After that was her ghosts, which I sent in Koops against in case they used Hypnosis, so I could tank Gengar's fairly weak physical attacks. I eventually beat Agatha. Her hypnosis kept missing on me, which was pretty cool.

-Lance is next. I led with Edgar again, remembering from previous playthroughs that he sends his Gyarados out first. I fried it with thunderbolt. I took down his Aerodactly with Barry's Surf, and the rest of his team with Koops' Ice beam.

-Next was the final battle against the rival. The place most likely to KO my Pokemon. I had to be careful against him.
I lead with Edgar again, knowing that he always leads with his bird. I fried it with thunderbolt, quickly turning the match into a 5 vs 5.

Next he used his Gyarados, which I also defeated quickly with thunderbolt. 5 vs 4.

Next he sent out his Venusaur. I went into vera, because she quad resists Grass attacks, and I wanted to use Sleep powder. I used Sleep Powder and then kept using psychic. Psychic was a 3KO, and he kept healing his Venusaur. The process of me sleep powdering him and then using psychic went on for quite a while, with the venusaur using sunny day and synthesis a couple of times, but not attacking on the turns it was awake, until he withdrew the venusaur and sent out Alakazam.

This was bad, as Vera was weak to psychic, and the Alakazam was very strong. After some thought, I switched to koops, and its psychic was just under a 2KO. I didn’t want to risk it getting a 2KO, so I had to PP stall it. I kept using a hyper potion, hoping to Arceus that it doesn’t get a critical hit or lower my special defence. Luckily it didn't, and after about 5 minutes, it stopped using Psychic and used Future Sight. I had Koops use Bite on it, which didn't do much. It put up a reflect, and I had Koops use Hydro Cannon on it, finishing it. 5 vs 3.

Next he sent out his Venusaur again. I went back into Vera, and used sleep powder again. It missed, and the Venusaur used Sunny Day. The second sleep powder hit. Knowing Psychic was not quite a 2KO, and that he would just heal, I gave Vera an X Special. 2 Psychics and the Venusaur was down. 5 vs 2.

He sent out a Rhydon, which Koops easily swept with Surf.

Next he sent out his Arcanine. It was still sunny, so water attacks would be weakened, and Arcanine has quite good defence. I used Bite to weaken it, and it used Flamethrower which did more damage because it was in the sun. The sun faded, and I had Koops use Hydro cannon to finish it off. I beat my Rival without losing any party members! Proffessor oak entered me into the hall of fame. After getting back to Pallet town I walked to Viridian city and deposited Karen in the death box. Next time I will do the aftergame.

Karen!! NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!! Losing one of your first pokemon is rough :(

Small update for me. I finished those two routes, picked up some new friends (I was really hoping for Growlithe, but my game hates me) and made my way into Celadon. Picked up my gifts, cleared the Rocket Hideout in the Game Corner and Celadon Gym.
My newly acquired Charles I immediately evolved into ;135;.
Minky evolved into ;057; while I was clearing the Rocket Hideout and Ralph evolved into ;097; while destroying Erika's gym.
I'm about to clear Pokemon Tower now. Then lots of training before heading to the next gym.

New Friends!:
;052; Houdini / Adamant / Route 7
;133; Charles / Sassy / Celadon City

Team:
;135; Charles (L25)
;097; Ralph (L29)
;042; Dracula (L30)
;008; Blaster (L32)

It's updatin' time!

Elliot, while he was useful during his first few levels as a Dustox, rapidly lost usefulness as time went on. So I went to Route 114, home of some of my favorite Pokemon--Swablu, Seviper, and Lombre. I was incredibly lucky to find a Seviper! I caught him after a little bit, and now he's the best mixed attacker on the team (but he's pretty freakin' slow).

Currently, I'm trying to get a TM for Ice Beam to teach Charlie, since Winona's Gym is next. So far it's going OK, but it's slow. With Ice Beam, Charlie should be able to take on Flying types--maybe even Winona's Tropius!

The team: (Valerie is ahead because she solo'd Norman's team with Bulk Up and Mach Punch.)

Charlie(Marshtomp): Level 28
Rogue(Mightyena): Level 27
Valerie(Breloom): Level 28
Swiper(Ninjask): Level 26
Percival(Crobat): Level 26
Jericho(Seviper): Level 26

Funny story about Percival, but also kind of heartwarming. At level 22, Percy evolved into Golbat, as is expected. Golbat looks very bizarre from behind, so I hoped he'd evolve again soon. And sure enough, he hit level 23--and evolved again. It's nice to know that he got full tameness before I even got used to him being a Golbat.

EDIT: I remember when I fought Gary. That's how Aeris died. :(

And thus my Nuzlocke journey begins... (Using the Standard Rules in the first post, plus "Only Healing at Pokemon Centers and with items found in the field (except Revives)."

TEAM
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpiconani/dpiconani252.gif Kidd the Treecko LV. 8 - Pound, Leer, Absorb
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/sprites/dpiconani/dpiconani261.gif Rawr the Poochyena LV. 3 - Tackle

BOX
N/A

DEAD
N/A

I received my lovely Treecko, but in the first two routes, my chances of catching a pokemon were thwarted when I accidentally killed them. Luckily though, in Route 102, I caught Rawr, my cute little Poochyena, who I hope will last quite some time on my team. But this journey has only begun!...

Le update!

After getting Ice Beam, we went to New Mauville and made a friend in Vincent the Voltorb. After that we went to Route 119 and grinded for literally days outside the Weather Institute. It was worth it--level 36 all around! But...the path to the Institute claimed a valuable life.

RIP Rogue. Level 3-28.

But all isn't sad. We beat Winona, Tate & Liza, and both Teams! The world is currently being rained out, so I have to head for Sky Pillar.

The team:

Charlie(Swampert): Level 42
Valerie(Breloom): Level 42
Swiper(Ninjask): Level 41
Percival(Crobat): Level 40
Jericho(Seviper): Level 40
Vincent(Electrode): Level 40

Deceased:

Rogue(Mightyena): Level 28

And my new Leafgreen Nuzlocke . . . begins!

Rules
1. If a Pokemon faints, it is dead and must be boxed permanently.
2. Only the first Pokemon on any route may be captured, no retries.
3. Dupes clause: off. I can catch and use more than one Pokemon of any species, though chances are that I won't actually use seconds.
4. If a Shiny appears, the rules mean nothing!


Day 1: May 25, 2012
- I started off in Pallet Town. Who doesn't? I didn't really feel like walking on train tracks like most boys do (at least the TV says they do), so I just decided to go off into the tall grass . . .
- . . . Until Oak ruined my fun and dragged me back to my lab. And Gary's there too? This keeps getting better and better. At least I get a Pokemon. I chose a Bulbasaur. His name is Rex.
- Rex had a tough time in his first battle, being reduced to 2 HP by Gary's Charmander. Then, Rex turned it around and beat Charmander with a critical hit Tackle.
- My journey begins . . . sort of. After getting to Viridian City, some jerk made me take a package back to Oak. But at least now I can get some Balls.
- On Route 1, I captured a Rattata and named her Dawnie.
- On Route 2, I captured a Pidgey and named him Quincy.
- In Viridian Forest, I captured a Caterpie and named her Lucah.
- And on Route 22, I captured a Mankey and named him Josh. Full name: Josh Mankey. Anyone get the reference? Anyone?
- I did a ton of training with my team in Viridian Forest before trying to fight Gary on Route 22. During this training, Dawnie was poisoned by a Weedle. I couldn't get her back to the Pokemon Center in time . . . R.I.P. Dawnie. I'm sorry you couldn't stick around longer.
- Lucah evolved into Metapod and, with my team now significantly leveld up, I decided to take on Gary.
- And I once again bit off more than I could chew. I started with Quincy, who got in a couple hits on Gary's Pidgey. But then, critical-hit Tackle. My second loss . . . R.I.P. Quincy. Rex finished off Pidgey and then beat Charmander thanks to Leech Seed. Gary must be really freaking stupid: His Pidgey never used Gust and Charmander never used Ember, yet both knew those moves. Of course, I'm thankful that he didn't use them, but it really doesn't make sense why he wouldn't.
- Now, I'm making my way through what remains of Viridian Forest.

Team
;001; Rex Lv. 9 - Tackle, Growl, Leech Seed
;011; Lucah Lv. 9 - Tackle, String Shot, Harden
;056; Josh Lv. 8 - Scratch, Leer, Low Kick

Deaths
;019; Dawnie Lv. 3 - 5
;016; Quincy Lv. 3 - 7

Day 2: May 26, 2012
- EVERYTHING I TOUCH DIES!!! But not quite yet. I made it the rest of the way through Viridian Forest. Lucah evolved once again during the trek.
- I arrived in Pewter City and immediately challenged the Gym. Rex went on a rampage and killed everything there, getting me my first badge.
- On Route 3, I battled past numerous trainers and caught a Spearow in the tall grass. Her name is Britney.
- And Britney is dead alright, killed by a critical-hit from a Lass's Pidgey's Gust.
- Next stop, Mt. Moon. Once inside, I found and captured a Zubat. Her name is Sonia.
- And now Sonia is dead too! Killed by a critical-hit Scratch from a wild Paras, of all things. WHY DO ALL MY FLYING-TYPES DIE?!?!? At least you're still with me, Lucah . . . right?
- During the trek through Mt. Moon, Rex evolved into Ivysaur.
- On Route 4, I captured another Spearow. I named him Dee. I still miss you, Britney . . .
- I did a little training before taking on Gary near Cerulean City. Lucah beat Pidgeotto and Abra while Josh beat Charmander and Rattata.
- I battled my way across Nugget Bridge, beating the Team Rocket recruiter at the end as well.
- On Route 24, I captured a Bellsprout. His name is Tom.
- I left off on Route 25, where I had the incredible luck to find and capture an Abra. I named him Brainiac.
- While training on Route 25, Brainiac evolved into Kadabra. I then met Bill and saved him from being stuck in the body of a Clefairy. No one deserves that fate.
- Now off to the S.S. Anne! But first I've got some new routes to clear. On Route 5, I found and caught a Meowth, who I named Harvard. Unfortunately, he was killed on the next route by a critical-hit Quick Attack from a Pikachu.
- On Route 6 . . . I found a Bellsprout. As if the one I had wasn't useless enough. (No offense, Tom!)
- In Vermillion City, I went around to get some cool new items. Most notably, I got a Bike Voucher and an Old Rod. I went to Vermillion Harbor and hooked a Magikarp with my Old Rod. I named her Phoebe and left her at the Day Care to level up.
- Out east, I went into Diglett's Cave and captured a *gasp* Diglett. I named her Henrietta.
- On Route 11, I found and caught a Sandshrew. I named him Alexander.
- I returned to the S.S. Anne and cleared out the trainers there, including Gary, with no trouble at all. I also received Cut from the seasick Captain *shudder* and made my way to Vermillion Gym, thanks to Tom and his newly learned Cut.
- Henrietta cleared out the Gym, sweeping Lt. Surge's team with three consecutive Magnitude 9.
- I returned to Route 2 through Diglett Cave to get the HM for Flash. Now who should I teach it to . . . Oh Toooom!
- Lastly, I returned to Cerulean City to prepare to go through Rock Tunnel. I'm already having nightmares . . .

Team
;002; Rex Lv. 23 - Razor Leaf, Sleep Powder, Leech Seed, Tackle

Little update. We made it to Victory Road and beat Wally! But we're gonna have to train a lot before we can take on the League. Ready my montage music, Charlie!

As a last resort, I taught Vincent Explosion in Pacifidlog. He's only to use it if there's literally no other way. If he's going down, he's going out with a bang.

The Team:

Charlie(Swampert): Level 43
Valerie(Breloom): Level 42
Swiper(Ninjask): Level 42
Percival(Crobat): Level 42
Jericho(Seviper): Level 41
Vincent(Electrode): Level 40

Hey, everyone! I started my FireRed Nuzlocke not too long ago and here are the rules:

1. If a Pokémon dies, that's it. Unless you get healed after the fight, which I don't think is in FireRed?
2. Only catch one Pokémon per route *sigh*
3. Not that it will happen, but I'm catching a Shiny even if I have that Pokémon.
4. Can only buy up to 5 Potions (or whatever the most recent healing item is) Please, tell me if that's too much, or if we could have an unlimited amount.
5. Can catch legendaries, but can't use them
6. Pokémon must be nicknamed with real life names.

And that's it! Here's what I've done so far in FireRed

-Named my character after myself, Matt.
-Chose my starter, Charmander, named Robert.
-Beat Rival Zach and went to Viridian City to get Oak's Parcel and give it to him
-On the way back to Viridian City, I caught a Pidgey named Pablo. Trained Pablo to Level 8 and Robert to Level 10. Battled Zach and won
-Got the Teachy TV from the old man and I headed into the Viridian Forest.
-Battled a couple of trainers and caught a Pikachu **I HAD TO ENCOUNTER OTHER POKEMON BEFORE PIKACHU BECAUSE I NEEDED A PIKACHU** From here on out, I won't do anything like that. Sorry if this screws everything up. :(
-Anyway, I nicknamed Pikachu Vivian and levelled up my team a bit more. Challenged Brock and I won using Charmander, who evolved!
-Once receiving the Boulder Badge, I headed to Mt. Moon, receiving the Running Shoes, and levelling up my team (mainly Pablo & Vivian) a bit more. About to enter Mt. Moon

Team:
;005; Robert - Level 16
Scratch, Ember, Metal Claw, Growl

;025; Vivian - Level 10 (or 9?)
Thunder Shock, Leer, Quick Attack, Thunder Wave

;016; Pablo - Level 14
Tackle, Gust, Quick Attack, Sand Attack

See you guys next time!

27th May 2012, 3:14 PM
started off this trip by leveling up Butters to lvl 10 and evolving her. After Reaching Pewter and Healing i leveled everyone else up to lvl 10 as well. Being lvl 10 i took no risks in the Gym and had Spyro take on everything. As expected Spyro had no problems and was level 12 by the time brock was defeated. Onward to Route 3 which brings me a Mankey named Skylar with Minorel the Geodude over at Mt Moon. Unfortunately, Butters, Purple and Meatball are useless in Mt Moon so they will be getting little or no Training. Not much to say about Mt Moon, except the clefairy trainer was higher leveled than i thought. Also, almost lost Skylar to a Magnemite. Had to heal Skylar and Minorel alot, but i finally made it to the fossils and grabbed the Helix Fossil.

Team
;007; spyro lvl 14
;015; Butters lvl 11
;056; Skylar lvl 13
;074; Minorel lvl 13
;019; Purple lvl 12

4. Can only buy up to 5 Potions (or whatever the most recent healing item is) Please, tell me if that's too much, or if we could have an unlimited amount.
You can buy as many posions, super posions, and so on, as you want. The only two main rules are (1) you must catch the first pokemon in an area, and (2), If they faint, they are considered died and can no longer be used! That includes automatic healing after a battle, they are still died. The nick nameing the Pokemon isn't a required rule, but most trainers add this to get attached to their Pokemon.
You can add rules like "Can only buy said amount of potions", or another where the only iteams they uses (besides Revives, of corse) are the items found on the field." You can add any rules you want to your Nuzlocke. You just have to keep the first two rules. (Once fainted they are forever died, and only one chance pur area)
It's your nuzlocke.
And another thing, I understand that you know that the hunting for the Pikachu was bad, but the whole point of a Nuzlocke is to play through a Pokemon game with Pokemon you might not ever use. (And to make such a simple game hard)

I hope this helps.

Don't worry about Shadow, I talked with him earlier. He didn't know when he caught Pikachu that you could only catch the first Pokemon on each route, and he was only getting it to make the fight with Misty easier. He's on the right track now, though.

Now for my own update:

Day 3: May 27, 2012
- Route 9: Another Spearow? I think I'll pass.
- Route 10: Voltorb! Awesome! His name is Rick, in memory of the amazing Electrode from Petty's Nuzlocke Adventure comic. I won't use him much, since I just used an Electrode in my Soulsilver Nuzlocke. I'm trying to use different Pokemon from my last few Nuzlockes.
- And now another fatality, and a horrifically unexpected one. I was fighting a girl with a Pikachu outside Rock Tunnel. The stupid thing kept using Double Team so that Henrietta couldn't hit it with Magnitude or Dig. Then, critical-hit Quick Attack. R.I.P. Henrietta, you were great while you were here.
- Now for the moment I've been dreading: Rock Tunnel. I caught a Geodude just inside the entrance, naming her Rockette. While traversing the cave, Josh evolved.
- I emerged into Lavender Town and headed straight west to Route 8. I caught another Meowth there. I named her Ivy.
- I went on through to Celadon City and picked up an Eevee, who I named Ares. Immediately after, I evolved him into a Flareon with a Fire Stone that I bought at the Dept. Store.
- Too late, I remembered to check on Phoebe at the Day Care. She was already Lv. 20, so she missed out on learning Bite when she evolved, but I think it will be alright.
- I returned to Lavender Town and defeated Gary in Pokemon Tower. Now, I'm preparing to travel through the rest of the tower.

Started a Sapphire Nuzlocke today. I have to nickname everything with an NBA player. All other general rules apply. My starter is LeBron, my Torchic.

28th May 2012, 5:05 PM
You can buy as many posions, super posions, and so on, as you want. The only two main rules are (1) you must catch the first pokemon in an area, and (2), If they faint, they are considered died and can no longer be used! That includes automatic healing after a battle, they are still died. The nick nameing the Pokemon isn't a required rule, but most trainers add this to get attached to their Pokemon.
You can add rules like "Can only buy said amount of potions", or another where the only iteams they uses (besides Revives, of corse) are the items found on the field." You can add any rules you want to your Nuzlocke. You just have to keep the first two rules. (Once fainted they are forever died, and only one chance pur area)
It's your nuzlocke.
And another thing, I understand that you know that the hunting for the Pikachu was bad, but the whole point of a Nuzlocke is to play through a Pokemon game with Pokemon you might not ever use. (And to make such a simple game hard)

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the help! So the only items I can't buy are Revives and Repels?



His name is Rick, in memory of the amazing Electrode from Petty's Nuzlocke Adventure comic. I won't use him much, since I just used an Electrode in my Soulsilver Nuzlocke. I'm trying to use different Pokemon from my last few Nuzlockes.


Huh, that's what I named my Spearow!

Now my Update:

-Went through Mt. Moon and caught a Zubat named Batman. I levelled him up like one level, however. Batman will just be backup when he sees the bat signal he'll come to the rescue with his bat powers
-After exiting, I arrived in Cerulean City. I challenged the Nugget Bridge and I got the Nugget from the Rocket Grunt.
-Caught an Oddish, but forgot to nickname it. Pablo evolved in a Trainer Battle afterwards.
-Next, I headed over to Bill's House battling many trainers and Pablo, Vivian, and Oddish went up a few levels (especially Oddish)
-I went to Cerulean Gym and battled the trainers there, than Misty.

Vivian vs. Staryu
Thunder Shock - Water Pulse
Thunder Shock - KO

Oddish vs. Starmie
Absorb - Swift
PoisonPowder - Swift
Heal - Swift
Absorb - Heal
Absorb - Swift
Absorb - Swift
Absorb - KO ( I think. It might have taken one more. XD)

Yeah, pretty boring fight. I mainly won because of PoisonPowder.
-After receiving the Cascade Badge, I fought the Rocket Grunt who robbed the house and got Dig.
-I went over to the Day Care, upset I could only deposit one, and I put in Batman. Might just train Rick on my own for a little bit.
-Went to the Pokémon Center and Saved.

My Team:
;005; Robert Level 21
Scratch, Growl, Ember, Metal Claw

;017; Pablo Level 19
Tackle, Sand Attack, Gust, Quick Attack

;043; Oddish Level 19 (went up like crazy!)

@Shadow XD001, The rules of a nuzlocke are just
1- catch the first pokemon you encounter in an area
2- fainting = death
All the other rules are up to you. If you want to buy repels and revives you can, if you want to make it harder then make a rule against buying them.

My progress is going really slowly. I got HM Fly, but found out Golbat doesnt learn it. I thought it could because I often have Crobat as my flyer. So now I'm stuck trying to decide if I want to continue as is, or raise a new flying type to replace Dracula.

Don't worry about Shadow, I talked with him earlier. He didn't know when he caught Pikachu that you could only catch the first Pokemon on each route, and he was only getting it to make the fight with Misty easier. He's on the right track now, though....Voltorb! Awesome! His name is Rick, in memory of the amazing Electrode from Petty's Nuzlocke Adventure comic.
RICK! =,3 My he Rest in Peace.
Alright, thanks. =3
The song she used was heart breaking, yet it was my favorite song at the time.


Thanks for the help! So the only items I can't buy are Revives and Repels?...Huh, that's what I named my Spearow!
You can buy Repels,just not Revives. Or...don't think so. I would think that would be defeting the pupus of a nuzlocke. Also, Rick was an Electrode from A petty LeafGreen Nuzlocke. http://pettyartist.deviantart.com/art/NCLG-Part-1-182581569 First part from the Comic. =3 Injoy amazingness of epicness that is of Petty.


@Shadow XD001, If you want to buy repels and revives you can.
You can't use Revives...or I never though you could, because that's breaking the second rule, fainting = dieing. Doesn't that defete the purpus(sp) of the Nuzlocke?

I think it's generally frowned upon, but it's not a rule. If I make use of revives, I only allow it to be used during battles. So it costs someone getting damaged while i revive or if a wild pokemon uses explosion, i'm out of luck.

28th May 2012, 7:11 PM
AH! Well, I still, will never use Revives. xDD I sell them...for money! $3$ So I can get posions and other goodies like that! But I can see why someone would do that.
Wouldn't have helped my poor Charazard. I HAD to kill Lance's Dragonite, or he wouldn't have killed my own. =,( (Leafgreen, by the way)

Today was a pretty awesome day. Though there was one bad thing . . . but more on that in a little bit.

Day 4: May 28, 2012
- I went the rest of the way through Pokemon Tower, getting a bunch of levels up on Brainiac. I was blocked at the top by a Ghost. Don't you hate it when that happens? Oh well, time to turn back.
- I spent way too long at the slots in Celadon, but between that and selling some items I didn't need, I was able to work up enough to get the Flamethrower TM at the Game Corner, which I taught to Ares.
- Ares went on a murderous rampage and defeated Erika and the rest of the trainers in the Gym by himself.
- Next up, I headed down into the Rocket Hideout beneath the Game Corner. I reached the bottom and beat their boss, Giovanni. After beating Giovanni, Rex evolved once again.
- With the Silph Scope in hand, I returned to Lavender Town and went back up the Pokemon Tower. I was hoping to maybe run into a Cubone to capture, but instead I got . . . HAUNTER?!?! I'll take it! I named her Sadie.
- Rex beat the restless spirit of Mother Marowak, and I went on to defeat Team Rocket at the top and rescued Mr. Fuji.
- I woke up the two Snorlax with the Poke Flute, and defeated both (the one near Celadon was an accident, I actually hoped to catch it :P). I got the Super Rod from the Fishing Guru and went on a fishing spree. On Route 12, I caught a Krabby named Eugene. In Vermillion City, I caught a Staryu named Polaris.
- I made my way down Cycling Road and got to Fuchsia City. I went straight to the Safari Zone and went on another catching spree, and a pretty good one, too. My captures were:
- Area 1: Guinevere the Chansey. Seriously, not only did I find Chansey first, but I caught her on the first Safari Ball. Why does this kind of thing only happen in a Nuzlocke, where Chansey is next to useless. I suppose she can always help out with Softboiled.
- Area 2: Takeshi the Parasect
- Area 3: Ted the Rhyhorn
- Area 4: Elizabeth the Seaking. I was hoping for Dratini, but whatever.
- Also, in Fuchsia City itself, I caught a Goldeen named Constance.
- I brought Ted to the team and did a ton of training with him on Cycling Road. I also caught Whiskers the Raticate on Route 17 and Mimi the Doduo on Route 18.
- Now for the hard part. I went to Saffron City to take on the Fighting Dojo in order to get some extra levels up on Lucah. She did well, but against one of the stronger Primeape, she took enough damage that I had to switch her out to heal her. I swapped in Josh while I waited. I'm not sure why, and looking back, I realize that Rex probably would've been the smarter choice. But anyway, when I healed Lucah, Josh was hit with Cross Chop . . . CRITICAL HIT.
- R.I.P. Josh - You'd been with me practically since the beginning. You beat down Gary every time we met and I don't think anyone ever killed as many Rattata as you did. Thanks for everything. Your sacrifice won't be in vain. Lucah will fight harder than ever for your sake . . .
- Ending on a lighter note, after beating the trainers in the Fighting Dojo, I was able to pick up Piston, a Hitmonchan. Of course, he can't be a replacement for Josh, but he can still do good.

Bit of an update from my last post. A little sad update, but whatever.

After beating Misty, I headed towards Vermillion City. I battled the trainers along the way and leveled up my team a bit. Unfortunately, Rick died along the way. I never really got to use Rick and I was just going to level him up a bit, but he died. (Can't remember from what. :P) I healed at Vermillion City and caught a Level 15 Diglett named David. Oh yeah, Lt. Surge is going to be so easy... BUT WAIT. While training David, I battled a Magnemite and David had 19HP and I misclicked and used Sand Attack, even though I meant to use Magnitude. Magnemite used Sonic Boom which always deals 20HP. Yep, that sucks. :( In that battle, I sent in Robert who defeated the Magnemite with 1 Ember. Take that. >:( I finished off battling all the trainers there and got the Vs. Seeker from the Pokémon Center. I also got the Bike Voucher at the Fan Club and got the Bike. Oh, I also caught an Ekans named Eddy.

Man! You are not the only one to lose a Diglett. I lost Minimole to Gary's Raticate. He was only level 22.
And Rick would have been good, too.
I would sugest(sp) using Robart for Lt. Surge. It would be the best, being he's your stongest. His strongest is a level 24 Raichu, a Voltorb and a Pikachu in the wings.
If you haven't used it already, I would say give Dig to Robart or Vivian, for super effective moves.
Hope I could help.

I'd level the oddish as a backup, I believe grass resists electric. So you could at least use it to switch in if the charmeleon gets low in health, potion charmeleon, sleep powder, switch back. (i'm not sure how effective bullet seed or absorb would be against Surges pokemon)

It seems a lot of us are losing Digletts. Mine went down to a stupid Pikachu outside Rock Tunnel. Let's give a salute to David, Minimole, Henrietta, and all the other dead Diglett of the world. May they all rest in peace.

Now my next update:


Day 5: May 29, 2012
- I started off by beating all of the trainers between Fuchsia and Lavender as a final training measure before taking on Koga. I got several level-ups on Ted, Ares, and Brainiac. Rex really started to fall behind, but there's a plan for him yet . . .
- I finally took on Koga. He was the toughest Gym Leader yet, but he wasn't anything that Brainiac, Ares, Lucah, and Ted couldn't handle.
- With Surf in hand, I took Rex out and beat the snot out of all the stupid swimmers between Pallet and Fuchsia. Rex literally went up 10 levels in that time.
- On Route 19, I caught a Tentacool and named her Jelly. On Route 21, I caught a stronger Tentacool and namer her Ruby. I skipped the Tentacool I met on the other routes :P
- I briefly went into Seafoam Islands and caught my newest team member, Suzanne the Seel.
- I returned to Saffron City to take on Team Rocket in the Silph Co. building. During this time, I got a bunch of level ups on Suzanne, who evolved during the process.
- Now I'm preparing to battle Gary at the top of the building, having now defeated all of the Grunts on all of the floors.

Seeing as how you're a lot higher level than I was for that fight and I didn't lose any Pokemon, you'll be just fine, Gallade. Still, watch out for that Charizard of his...if you get unlucky with Rock Blast, who knows what might happen?

Is my Diglett the only one who survived...? Steve, you are a lucky bast--

All turned out alright. I decided to play for just a few more minutes while I was waiting on something. I don't know why I keep forgetting to go back to Rock Tunnel to teach Rock Slide to Ted, but Rock Blast worked out well enough.

Day 5.5: Still May 29, 2012 (Actually, it's early May 30, 2012, but who's counting?)

- I destroyed Gary in the battle with him. Ted beat Pidgeot and Charizard, Brainiac beat Gyarados, and Lucah beat Exeggcute and Alakazam.
- Giovanni was almost as easy as Gary. Suzanne beat Nidorino, Rhyhorn, and Nidoqueen all in a row. Ted beat Kangaskhan like a champ. He was taking Mega Punches like they were Tackles. It makes me wonder why I never used a Rhyhorn before. After the battle, Ted evolved, which is even more awesome.
- I flew back to Cinnabar and went into the Pokemon Mansion, where I caught a Grimer. I named him Sucio.
- Then I remembered that I still had to battle Sabrina, so I'll be taking care of that next time :P

All right, guys...this is my last update here. I'll still advise you on YOUR adventures if you want, but this is the end of my Emerald Nuzlocke.

It took a long time, but everyone--Cyrus included--got to Level 50. With such a strong roster, I felt sure we could win against the League. So we entered the Pokemon Center/Mart thing, and knew there was no going back once we stepped through that door. But we stepped through anyway.

First up was Sidney. Valerie took him on, and utterly annihalated his Mightyena, Cacturne and Shiftry. Charlie took on Absol, because I knew it had Aerial Ace. Vincent took down Crawdaunt with ease.

Next was Pheobe. I got very lucky during this fight, in a method that I'll explain when I get to it. Her Dusclops was bulky--even Cyrus's attacks didn't do a lot. One Dragon Claw from Cyrus got it to about 75%. Lucky for me, it used Curse, and I got a critical hit the next turn. Dusclops was down for the count. Next was Banette, who I sent out Charlie to face. I got a critical hit with Earthquake, OHKO'ing it. This happened with her other Banette too. Her Sableye was easily dealt with, because Percival confused it and it hit itself almost every round. As for her other Dusclops, I planned to use Percival against it, but didn't realize it had Rock Slide. I just barely survived, but managed to confuse it. I sent in Charlie again and finished it off.

With Pheobe gone, Glacia was next. Valerie had little trouble there--except against Walrein. Sky Uppercut hit it hard, and brought it down to about 1/3. It used Sheer Cold, and I was scared to death. I was sure that Valerie would die...but then it missed. Between laughing and sighing with relief, Valerie finished off the colossal Pokemon with Mach Punch, and continued sweeping Glacia's team.

I was feeling pretty confident about Drake. To my knowledge all of his Pokemon were weak to Ice. So Charlie swept his team...until he brought out Kingdra. I would've used Cyrus, but I knew that this Kingdra probably had Ice Beam or Outrage. So I switched to Vincent. Expecting a Hydro Pump, I set up a Light Screen. But it used Dragon Dance. I knew I was in trouble if I let this go on. There would be no stopping this Kingdra from sweeping my team. I didn't have a Steel-type, or anything with Protect. I knew there was only one way to win this battle. I had Vincent use Explosion. It got a critical hit, and Kingdra was down. Vincent died to save us all. With Kingdra gone, Charlie swept the rest of Drake's team with ease.

We were crushed by Vincent's sacrifice, but we couldn't turn back. His sacrifice would be in vain if we gave up. So we went in to challenge Wallace, knowing the huge disadvantage we had. Charlie took down his Wailord after three Earthquakes, but not without tanking two weakened Water Spouts. Swiper Aerial Aced the crap out of Ludicolo. Percival was up against Gyarados, and he was tough. But Percy confused the monster, then used his new move, Sludge Bomb, to kill off the dragon. Charlie was the obvious choice vs. Tentacruel, and beat it easily. Valerie was up against Milotic, and hit it with a Sky Uppercut. Milotic didn't die, and hit Valerie with Ice Beam, almost killing her. I switched to Percival, confused it, and switched again. With Milotic confused, I brought in Charlie, who managed to finish it off. As for Whiscash, he and Charlie had an Earthquake war, and Charlie won.

We were Champions now...but at what cost? Vincent was gone. We may have never gotten to know each other all that well, but he was still my friend. But due to his selfless sacrifice, we managed to claw our way up to the championship. I'll never forget what he did for us.

The total body count was two. RIP Rogue and Vincent.

And so our Hoenn journey is over. But our Sinnoh journey has only begun...

Ah, thanks for the tip! Completely forgot I had Dig! Might teach it to Vivian because than she could have some use in the Gym and the Electric Type attacks aren't very effective ( on her. (they could use non-electric attacks, but whatever) Also, giving Vivian Dig is a little risky if I'm battling a Ground Type w/ Earthquake, but I'd just switch out to Oddish. :P


I'd level the oddish as a backup, I believe grass resists electric. So you could at least use it to switch in if the charmeleon gets low in health, potion charmeleon, sleep powder, switch back. (i'm not sure how effective bullet seed or absorb would be against Surges pokemon)

Yeah, Grass resists Electric. Electric still affects Grass (and vice-versa), but it's not super effective. Using PoisonPowder might be the better option, though, since it would affect the Pokémon throughout the whole battle. Oddish evolves in one level, too, so I have to get on that.


It seems a lot of us are losing Digletts. Mine went down to a stupid Pikachu outside Rock Tunnel. Let's give a salute to David, Minimole, Henrietta, and all the other dead Diglett of the world. May they all rest in peace.

For now there's a random Meowth in my team because I needed cut, it will be replaced... not sure with what yet.
Oh, and I missed catching a Pidgey on Route 13. Not that it matters, since I have plenty of birds sitting in my PC already.
/mourn Blaster. T_T

AH MAN! That sucks!
I, too, lost my starter. Chaos was his name. He died to Lance's Dragonite. Thought we would make it, becuase the thing was confused...he didn't hit himself...and he used Hyper Beam.
Then, with Gary, I lost my Vaporeon to his stupid Alakazam. It didn't hurt me as bad as I would think, but that's because of the loss of Chaos.

May Blaster rest peacefuly.

@ ShinyMisty, at least yours died in a meaningful battle. I lost mine to a random trainer T_T

Mini update for me. I went through the Safari Zone once and then defeated Koga's gym. I decided to grab my magikarp and train it up (slow going since I caught it at level 5) to be my HM slave until I find something better. I still have to go back through Safari Zone for the last of the items, but I decided to head to Silph Co. / Sabrina's gym first. Silph Co. is my least favorite dungeon, so it'll be a while before my next update >.<

Yikes, seems I missed out a couple of sad deaths. R.I.P. Blaster, I hate to see when anyone loses their starter. Especially to a random Muk, of all things. Also, R.I.P. Vincent and his bold sacrifice for the Hoenn team of Psychic Swordsman.

Anyway, back to my own update. I never really played for more than a few minutes at a time over the past couple of days, but I got a bunch more done today. Here's a basic list of what happened:

Day 6: June 1, 2012

- I beat Sabrina with ease thanks to Lucah.
- I swept through Pokemon Mansion and then annihilated Blaine with Suzanne and Ted.
- I traveled to the Sevii Islands and did a bunch of crap. I caught a bunch of new Pokemon though I haven't had need to use them and frankly can't remember most of them without looking.
- I returned to Viridian City and creamed Giovanni with Rex and Suzanne.
- I wiped out Gary on the way to the Pokemon League. Ted beat Pidgeot and Charizard, Ares beat Exeggcute, Brainiac beat Gyarados, Rex beat Rhyhorn, and Lucah beat Alakazam.
- Now all I've got to do is train in Victory Road and I'll be ready for the League.

Team
;003; Rex Lv. 46 - Razor Leaf, Sleep Powder, Leech Seed, Frenzy Plant
;012; Lucah Lv. 48 - Aerial Ace, Silver Wind, Psychic, Sleep Powder
;064; Brainiac Lv. 47 - Psychic, Shock Wave, Recover, Teleport
;136; Ares Lv. 46 - Flamethrower, Shadow Ball, Dig, Quick Attack
;112; Ted Lv. 46 - Dig, Rock Slide, Strength, Rock Smash
;087; Suzanne Lv. 47 - Surf, Aurora Beam, Take Down, Rest

Deaths
;019; Dawnie Lv. 3 - 5
;016; Quincy Lv. 3 - 7
;021; Britney Lv. 8 - 8
;041; Sonia Lv. 9 - 9
;052; Harvard Lv. 12 - 12
;050; Henrietta Lv. 20 - 25
;057; Josh Lv. 3 - 32


Final Day: June 2, 2012

- I made it through Victory Road and did a bunch of Vs. Seeker rematches to get my levels up. My team before entering the Pokemon League was:
-;003;Rex Lv. 51 - Razor Leaf, Sleep Powder, Leech Seed, Frenzy Plant
-;012;Lucah Lv. 51 - Aerial Ace, Silver Wind, Psychic, Sleep Powder
-;064;Brainiac Lv. 51 - Psychic, Shock Wave, Recover, Teleport
-;136;Ares Lv. 51 - Flamethrower, Shadow Ball, Dig, Quick Attack
-;112;Ted Lv. 51 - Earthquake, Rock Slide, Double-edge, Toxic
-;087;Suzanne Lv. 51 - Surf, Ice Beam, Return, Rest
- And so . . . it begins!

Match 1 - Lorelei
- Overall, a good fight.
- Rex destroyed Dewgong, Slowbro, and Lapras with his Sleep Powder-Leech Seed combo.
- Ares one-shotted Jynx with Shadow Ball.
- Rex beat Cloyster with Frenzy Plant.

Match 2 - Bruno
- A pretty easy fight.
- Rex beat Onix with Razor Leaf.
- Brainiac beat Hitmonchan with a critical-hit Psychic.
- Lucah beat Hitmonlee after thankfully dodging a Mega Kick and putting it to sleep. She finished it with a couple of Aerial Aces.
- Lucah beat Machamp with the same Sleep Powder-Aerial Ace strategy.
- Rex beat the second Onix with Razor Leaf.

Match 3 - Agatha
- Another pretty easy match. Funny, I expected this to be the tough one.
- Brainiac beat the first Gengar with Psychic.
- Ted beat Golbat with Rock Slide.
- Brainiac beat Arbok with Psychic.
- Lucah beat the second Gengar with Sleep Powder followed by Psychic.
- Brainiac beat Haunter with Psychic.

Match 4 - Lance
- Overall easy . . . but with a rough start.
- Brainiac hit Gyarados with Shock Wave . . . who survived and used Hyper Beam . . .
- R.I.P. Brainiac - You were a real bro. You proved in the end that it was okay that I couldn't trade you to evolve. You did as well as any Alakazam could.
- Rex finished off Gyarados with Frenzy Plant.
- Suzanne beat Dragonair with Ice Beam.
- Ted beat Aerodactyl with Rock Slide.
- Suzanne beat the second Dragonair and Dragonite with Ice Beam.

Match 5 - Gary
- Bring it on, jerkwad. Bring it on.
- Ted beat Pidgeot with Rock Slide.
- Suzanne beat Rhydon with Surf.
- Lucah beat Exeggutor with Silver Wind.
- Ted beat Charizard with Rock Slide.
- Rex beat Gyarados in a long battle thanks to Leech Seed.
- Ares beat Alakazam with Shadow Ball.

- And now . . . I am the Champion! But at what cost? Still, I'm glad that the surviving team members made it. And I'm still proud of Josh, Brainiac, and the others. Thanks for everything!

Thanks for the memories, guys!

And so, the Leafgreen Nuzlocke is over. But that doesn't mean that I'm done with 3rd Gen yet! What could this possibly mean? Why, it could only mean that it's finally time for:

MY EMERALD NUZLOCKE CHALLENGE!!!
Rules
1. If a Pokemon faints, it's dead and must be boxed.
2. Only the first Pokemon encountered on each route may be captured.
3. No duplicates.
4. Exception to Rule 3: If a Pokemon of the same species as one who has died is encountered, it can be captured. Ex: My Zigzagoon dies, I encounter one on another route, I can catch and use it.

Yup, I'm doing Emerald now. And I've already started, too!

Day 1: June 2, 2012

- I started off in the back of a freakin' moving van. I'm pretty sure this is child abuse . . .
- And now I've got save some old man from a raccoon. Makes sense. I WANT THE CHICKEN!!!
- I started off with Torchic. I named him Moegami. I'm sure that a lot of people should get that reference, either for the game character itself or the famous LPer who also used a Torchic named Moegami.
- I went a little overboard training and got Moegami up to Lv. 10 before I even battled May.
- After beating May and getting the Pokedex, I went on a catching spree. On Route 101, I caught a Zigzagoon and named him Carl. On Route 103, I found another stupid Zigzagoon, so I passed there. On Route 102, I found an awesome Lotad and named him Homer.
- I did a bunch of training with Carl and Homer before getting to Petalburg City, where I left off.

Ruby update...
*Sigh* really hating my starter choice and the rule of raising the 1st 6 caught to lvl 25 before I can switch out. I usually take the fire type (for obvious reasons ^_^), but decided to make things harder by taking the grass type instead. My 1st 6 are grass (Mana, my starter), grass-dark (Nuzdot, my Nuzleaf),normal (Linzig my Zigzagoon),bug-ground (Cadjask my Nincada),grass (Bremish my Shroomish) and bug-poison (Wurcoontox my Dustox). Not a very good team to try and raise around rte 110 and to go up against my rival with Combusken and company.
Everyone is now between 17 and 20, but my confidence isn't very high.

-If all six faint, the game will be called ... I don't think I can face going on without Mana.....

I finally made it through Silph Co. I cleared the Fighting Dojo, Sabrina's gym and grabbed my missing items from the Safari Zone. No deaths since Blaster, hurrah! I think I'll do Power Plant and Seafoam Islands before heading to Cinnibar gym.

My Emerald adventure continues:

Day 2: June 3, 2012

- I started off by meeting with Norman and helping Wally catch his first Pokemon . . . or rather, watching him catch a Pokemon with no guidance whatsoever. Why did I need to be here again?
- I headed off for Rustboro. On Route 104, I caught a Marill and named her Prim. Unfortunately, I lost her shortly afterward to a trainer's Zigzagoon and its critical-hit Tackle.
- In Petalburg Woods, I caught a Wurmple and named her Gypsy. She quickly evolved twice, to Silcoon and then Beautifly. Homer also evolved during this training.
- On Route 116, I caught Daniel, a Taillow.
- In Rusturf Tunnel, I caught a Whismur. I named her Whisper.
- I took on Roxanne and made a big mistake. Gypsy had been doing an awesome job, getting OHKOs on several Geodude with her Absorb. I thought for sure she could handle Roxanne's too. She hit Roxanne's Geodude with Absorb . . . and it survived to use Rock Tomb. R.I.P. Gypsy, I was hoping I'd get to use a butterfly at the League for two Nuzlockes in a row. You did a great job for one so young. Homer wrapped up the battle, sweeping the rest of Roxanne's team.
- That poor Devon guy got his Goods stolen, so I had to go beat the snot out of an Aqua Grunt to get them back. And I saved some old guy's Wingull. Like he'll ever be important for anything.
- And one more loss was headed my way, this time in my second battle with May. WHY DOES SHE HAVE A FREAKING TORKOAL? Number one, this is way too early in the game to be fighting anything with Curse, especially when that something is a freaking defensive wall like Torkoal. Number two, she replaces that Torkoal with a Slugma in the very next battle! And three, if you're playing as May and fighting Brendan, he actually does use a Slugma in this fight. So WHY THE STUPID TORKOAL? Daniel held up for awhile, but eventually, I had to call him back. In order to play itself, I had to sacrifice Whisper to Torkoal, who fell to a single Ember. R.I.P. Whisper, you may have been kind of derpy, but you were still brave in your own way. Moegami managed to finish off Torkoal and Homer beat Mudkip.
- I went off to Dewford Town and made my way through Granite Cave without Flash. I was initially going to use a Repel to get me through the first floor or two, but I wound up not needing to: I made it clear to the third floor before I ran into a wild Pokemon: A Sableye. I named her Topaz. While training in the cave, Moegami evolved.
- Topaz obliterated Brawly. Seriously, that guy doesn't have a single attack that can hit a Ghost-type. Topaz was only Lv.12 yet she swept his team of two Lv. 16 and a Lv.19. HAHAHA!
- On to Slateport! I took out Team Aqua at the Museum before heading north to take out the Trick House and do other training.
- I beat May with ease on Route 110. Daniel beat Lombre, Carl beat Slugma, and Homer beat Marshtomp. While on the route, I captured a Wingull, who I named Mike. I left him in the box, so I'll bring him back if I'm ever in need of another Water or Flying-type. Also, while training on the route, Carl evolved.
- I left off in Mauville City, getting ready for more training on the adjoining routes.

Out of Mt Moon, The first thing i did was teach the Mega Moves to my pokemon. Spyro got Meaga Kick and Minorel got Mega Punch. Grabbed a Sandshrew named Marmellow on my way into cerulean before healing up for the rival battle. My team was under leveled, but we had no troubles. With everyone at lvl 14 and minorel at 16 i headed up the Nugget Bridge. Almost lost Meatball to a Hyper Fang, but despite the 6 antidotes i bought i didnt need any for once. Route 24 Brought me an unexpected Caterpie named Scyth and Route 25 Brought Meatballs Death to a Machop. After Catching Oddish the Bellsprout, i went back to town and Switched Butters for Scyth and Meatball for Oddish. Saved For awhile until Scyth is a Butterfree.

Is there a rule about trading dead pokemon to an NPC?

Got another segment done before anyone else posted, so I'll just edit this a little.

So I cleared the Power Plant, Seafoam Islands, Pokemon Mansion and Cinnabar Gym.
In Pokemon Mansion I ran into a Growlithe, and I was so happy! I really wanted one for this game. I was preparing to catch it, got its health down and was about to put it back to sleep, when it used Take Down, effectively committing suicide. :( Ah well, I'll just have to keep using Snorlax.
So now I think I'll go to the Sevii Islands with Bill to train up a bit before continuing on to Giovanni.

Haven't updated in a few days. I'm back now with an update!

Trained up my team a lot for the battle against Lt. Surge. Eddy was doing very good as an Ekans and started to fly though the levels. I leveled up Oddish by one and he (or she?) evolved into Gloom! Still undecided about whether or not I'll evolve Gloom into Bellosom or Vileplume. Eh, that won't be for a little while longer. I taught Vivian Dig for the battle against Lt. Surge because she can resist electric type attacks, so giving her Dig was a good thing. On the SS. Anne, I did a lot of training and Eddy got to Level 20 and some of my other Pokémon only went up like 1 or 2 levels. Battled my Rival Zach next. Not too good. Surprisingly, I took out his Pidgeotto with Eddy and next he sent in Kadabra. I left Eddy in to fight because Bite would deal some damage. Too bad I forgot that Psychic moves are super effective on Posion Types! DX Luckily, Eddy survived with 3HP! I sent in Pablo because I thought he would win. Kadabra used Confusion which left Pablo with 33HP out of 60HP and I used Gust bringing Kadabra down to yellow HP. Unfortunately, Kadabra attacked first and Confusion knocked out Pablo with a critical hit! My first capture! Dead. >:( Robert came in and knocked out Kadabra. Gloom knocked out Wartortle and Robert knocked out Raticate.

Sadly, I deposited Pablo and then headed to the Gym. I battled a trainer with a Pikachu and I had Eddy out. I got a couple of Bites in, but Eddy fell due to some Bites missing. Two dead. :( I finally got to Lt. Surge and Vivian, using Dig, took out Voltorb and Pikachu. Last was Raichu. Stupid thing spammed Double Team, so pretty much all my Dig attacks missed, so I switched to Gloom and hit Raichy with a PoisonPowder. Surge used a Full Heal, but I was able to land another Poison Attack. This really helped because pretty much all my attacks missed due to stupid Double Team. I still won, though. After receiving the Thunder Badge, I got back Batman from the Daycare and he is now Level 18. Gonna try to level him up a lot and hopefully learn a flying type move? That would help against Erika.

Team
;005; Robert Level 25
Brick Break, Ember, Metal Claw, Growl

;025; Vivian Level 22
Thunder Shock, Slam, Dig, Quick Attack

;044; Level 22
Absorb, Bullet Seed, PoisonPowder, Cut

Micro update:
The good news is I defeated my rival with no problems.
The bad news is I somehow lost my Jolteon to a wild Geodude in Victory Road. stupid explosion. grrrr!! I thought Double Kick would OHKO the thing because it was more than 10 levels lower than Charles, but I was wrong. Only got it down to yellow, so it had just enough life left to kill.
Sigh.
Anyways, while I consider a replacement.... where is a good place to train for level 50 - 55 in Fire Red? I'm a little tired of Victory Road, but I haven't noticed and other good spots.

Shadow, just so you know, you won't be able to evolve Gloom into Bellossom until after beating the Elite 4, so I would suggest Vileplume.

Now for my new updates, covering both yesterday and today:

Days 3 and 4: June 4 and 5, 2012

- I started off training around Mauville. On Route 117, I actually managed to catch a Seedot. WHICH HAS A 1% APPEARANCE RATE. I was pretty darn happy. I named her Locke and quickly evolved her into Nuzleaf. (Hooray for Nuzlocke!) I left her at the Day Care after this.
- I took on the Winstrate family and defeated them. During the fighting, Daniel evolved.
- I crushed poor Wally outside the Gym. Topaz beat his Ralts in one shot with Astonish. I kind of feel bad for the guy . . . but not too bad.
- I went through the Gym and took on Wattson, which was my most challenging fight yet (except for May's stupid Torkoal back in Rustboro). Carl beat Voltorb, Topaz beat Electrike, and Moegami beat Magneton and Manectric. The battle against Manectric was rough, as Moegami got paralyzed repeatedly and I had to heal him repeatedly, but he still pulled through and eventually won with a critical-hit Ember.
- With my new badge in hand, I headed north towards Mt. Chimney. On Route 112, I caught a Marill. I named him Tracey. He reminds me so much of Prim . . .
- In Fiery Path, I found and caught a Koffing, who I named Bob. I was originally going to keep Bob on the team, but I realized that I would be screwed trying to go up against Flannery with my current team, so I decided to keep Tracey to train him up to be my Water-type for the battle. I'll probably leave Tracey once Homer is able to learn Surf, though who knows if I'll get too attached to do that, or if Tracey and Homer will both even be alive by that point . . . but let's not think about that.
- While training, Tracey evolved and is now keeping up with the rest of the team. I left off in the old lady's rest house, ready to head out to Fallarbor Town.

Too Funk to Druck
7th June 2012, 8:23 PM
Decided to start a Sapphire Nuzlocke(technically a restart, but meh). Standard rules apply, but I also have a no duplicates rule, and I can use revives I find on the ground, but only once on a given Pokemon, and only during the battle they died in. Any Revives found throuhg Pick-up are tossed. Also, the first Pokemon you see rule starts after I get Poke Balls.

(cookies to whoever knows where my names come from!)

I started off as the guy, named Ramza. I did all the stupidly boring beginning stuff in order to get to the part where I pick my starter. Hoping I got a male(which is almost a given), I picked Mudkip. It was male of course. I easily defeated the Poochyena, and then got teleported to the lab. There I gave Mudkip the great nickname of Orlandu.

bladybladyblah I beat May, got my Poke Balls, and start catching Pokemon. First was a male Poochyena which I named Delita. Since I had absolutely no desire to train one, it was quickly put in the PC. Next was a female Zigzagoon, which I named Alicia. I figured I might as well keep it until I found better Pokemon. It had a Calm nature, which is pretty crappy, but meh. After that, I got a female Wurmple, which I named Miluda, just like the Wurmple from my last one. And just like that Wurmple, she evolved into a Dustox. Chances are, she's gonna go to the box pretty soon.

I defeated the random trainers, helped Wally get his stupid Ralts, and then went to the next route where I got pretty damn lucky. I got a Taillow with an Adamant nature! Her name is Lavian. Into Petalburg Woods I went, and there I found a Shroomish, with a horrible Gentle nature, which I named Lad. Even with that nature, Shroomish will probably help out greatly later, so he's definitely a keeper.

Again, random stupid stuff I don't care about. Got to Rustboro City and went straight to Route 116. Of course, I found a Skitty. Never mind all those times I actually wanted/needed to use a Skitty where it took me hours. Nope. Got this one in one. Her name is Alma, but I don't really want to use her. The obvious Whismur I got was named Olan. I'm also not using him.

I haven't ben able to get much farther in my Ruby Nuzlock. I'm really stuck with a bad team and my own rules (1st 6 captures - including my starter, Mana, cannot be boxed until they reach lvl 25, or are defeated). I have 1 bug, 3 grass or grass/xxxx all are weak to fire - my rival's starter. I am not sure at this point if I can beat May on Rte 110 without losing most of my team. I have never finished a Nuzlocke with a Nuzleaf/Shiftry and it's something I would like to do.

Anyone know at what level a Zigzagoon will start to pick up rare candies on a regular basis?

Since last time, Scyth evolved into a butterfree and Spyro evolved into Wartortle. Got The SS Ticket from Bill After Training, and dashed off to facing the Team Rocket member. Chose to ignore Misty for awhile and went and caught a meowth named Cooper on route 5 and a pidgey named Hydra on route 6. After some wild pokemon fighting, Oddish and I wen back to see Misty. She killed 4 of my pokemon before it looked like i would win, but then she used a super potion and killed the other 2.

So at 20 hours in, i only get 1 badge and i lose the challenge. I have no idea why it always takes me 20 hours to reach the second gym in Nuzlockes, but maybe if i did 30 hours i would have beat misty.

Already Started a New Nuzlocke with Andre the Bulbasaur.

in Ruby / Sapphire, the pickup list isn't level based. So, you'll basically have the same chance of getting rare candies no matter what level the zigzagoon is

That's too bad...well, next time will be better. Bulbasaur is a pretty kickass starter.


I defeated the random trainers, helped Wally get his stupid Ralts, and then went to the next route where I got pretty damn lucky. I got a Taillow with an Adamant nature! Her name is Lavian. Into Petalburg Woods I went, and there I found a Shroomish, with a horrible Gentle nature, which I named Lad. Even with that nature, Shroomish will probably help out greatly later, so he's definitely a keeper.

My Shroomish was Gentle too. Doesn't make it any worse. If anything, it makes it easier to survive Fire and Ice moves, and you can get Bulk Up later for Flying moves.

Yeah, it's still working out well. At least it's not a -Attack Nature or anything.

Anyways, update time!
I took on Roxanne, who was ridiculously easy. Lad took out her Geodude in one or two Absorbs, and then I Stun Spored and Leech Seeded Nosepass. Then I switched out to Orlandu to do the final damage. I beat up on the Team Aqua Grunt, and beat the two extra trainers then headed off to Dewford. In Dewford Cave I caught a Makuhita which I named Orinas. I don't think I'm gonna use him though.

I headed off to Dewford Gym after getting the Steel Wing TM from Steven. I let Lavian take care of the whole gym, seeing as she the one who's gonna take it down the easiest. And that she did. Of course she's not a few levels higher than the rest of the team, but meh, not much to worry about.

oh and before i get to far into this nuzlocke, i wll ask my question again.

Is there a Rule against trading dead pokemon to NPC's?

If i had beaten Misty i would have gone and traded my dead Spearow for CH'DING, since there was no reply last time i asked.

I think it would be considered cheating. The "death" box is meant to be as if you had released the pokemon. If it had been released, then you wouldn't be able to trade it.

I would also consider that cheating. If you're unable to get an NPC's Pokemon because your Pokemon is dead, you shouldn't get it.

I finally got back around to my Emerald Nuzlocke after a few busy days. I did get some more badges, but there were also some bad things . . .

Day 5: June 9, 2012

- I started off by making the long trek towards Fallarbor Town. My capture: Don't be Spinda, don't be Spinda, don't be Spinda . . . Slugma? I didn't even know they were on this route. I named him Slinkman.
- I got to Fallarbor Town and went right on through to continue my training. I got a few more captures too. On Route 114, I caught a Swablu, who I named Altair. In Meteor Falls, I caught a *gasp* Zubat, who I named Clark.
- It seems that Team Magma is up to no good. Oh well, I'm sure that Team Aqua will stop them . . . right?
- I kept training on the surrounding routes before eventually heading back to Mt. Chimney to confront Team Magma. I beat Maxie without many problems; Moegami beat Mightyena, Clark beat Zubat, and Tracey beat Camerupt.
- I went down to Lavaridge and received an Egg, which I'll probably never hatch. I caught Lizzie the Numel on the Jagged Pass on the way down.
- I challenged Flannery and beat her with little problems. Tracey swept her entire team, though the combination of Light Screen, Sunny Day, and Attract was annoying, to say the least.
- With four badges, the time had finally arrived to take on Norman. I figured it'd be easy with Moegami and Topaz at my side . . . right?
- But first, I did some training in the desert on Route 111 and caught a Trapinch, who I named Emmy and brought to the team in place of Tracey. I also picked up the Claw Fossil, which was revived into an Anorith in Rustboro City. I named him Norik.
- Without further delay, I returned to Petalburg City and challenged the Gym. I was watching a movie as I played, so I was admittedly a little distracted. I was still sending in Emmy first so that she could get some experience, and my first battle was against a trainer with a Swellow. I swapped out Emmy for Daniel and ordered Wing Attack, then turned my attention to the movie for a minute. When I looked back at my DS in time to read "Critical hit"! I don't even know what the move was . . . but it was enough to kill Daniel. R.I.P. Daniel, you were probably the greatest Swellow I ever trained.
- I brought Tracey back to the team and made my way to Norman without incident. Thus, the real battle began. Carl took out Spinda with a couple uses of Headbutt. Slaking was next, so I sent in Topaz, who was able to get in a few hits with Fake Out and Fury Swipes . . . which was basically the equivalent of hitting a tank with a flyswatter. I managed to safely swap in Moegami to get some hits with Double Kick, but it still wasn't enough to finish the job. Tracey was next in line. His defense was strong enough to take hits even from the mighty Slaking, especially once he'd used Defense Curl. One chain of Rollouts wound up being enough to beat Slaking, although it probably wouldn't have worked it the last hadn't been a critical hit. After that, it was easy. Moegami beat Vigoroth with Double Kick and Topaz beat Linoone with a series of Fury Swipes.
- Next time, I'll be heading out to train on the sea routes between Petalburg and Slateport. I still need to find someone to take Daniel's place on the team, not that that will be easy to do. For now, I'll stick with Tracey, but since Homer has Surf now, Tracey isn't quite as necessary. But for now, he's keeping his spot.

Now see i thought of it the other way. If an NPC wants to accept a "Dead" Pokemon in a Trade, thats their problem.

so, even if the "dead" pokemon hasnt been "boxed" yet would the trade still be cheating?

For example, I just lost my ;019; , Jean as the Rival Gary just popped up with a load of new and evolved Pokemon.

Yes, because it's still "dead". Not being able to always get the Pokemon you want is part of the challenge. I would include npc trades in that.

I'm back again, with an update. A decent amount of stuff happened, but I didn't get my 4th Gym Badge yet. That will be in the next update. I'm hoping to get 2 badges in one update.

Now that I received the Thunder Badge, I headed over to Rock Tunnel to my next destination: Celadon City. At Rock Tunnel, Batman finally learned Wing Attack, which will help greatly. I also picked up Aerial Ace, but I decided not to teach that to Batman since he just learned Wing Attack, so Aerial Ace might hinder that move. Anyway, Batman also evolved into Golbat. I also caught a Rattata named Ratman (awesome nickname, I know) and a Voltorb named Vincent. They didn't get too much action in Rock Tunnel since there were mostly Hikers and Gloom took care of them. Occasionaly, Batman battled them with Wing Attack against Machops. Vivian also saw some action against some Pokémon (mainly Slowpokes) and finally learned Thunder Bolt! Once, I exited Rock Tunnel, I caught a Mankey named Albert. In Lavendar Town, I went to the Pokémon Tower and battled my Rival. Vivian took out Pidgeotto, Batman took out Growlithe (I think), Gloom took out Wartortle, Robert took care of Exeggute, and Batman took care of Kadabra. I healed afterwards and Batman annihilated the whole Pokémon Tower with just Bite. He didn't get hit once! I left after that and headed towards Celadon City, and I caught a Meowth named Maurice along the way. Unfortunately, Ratman died in a Trainer Battle. :( I finally arrived in Celadon City and I got an Eevee named Isaac. Isaac was an Eevee for a short time because I bought a Water Stone, Thunder Stone and Leaf Stone. the Water Stone evolved Isaac into Vaporeon, Leaf Stone evolved Gloom into Vileplume and I'm going to evolve Vivian after the Gym. Oh, I also picked up Fly, but apparently a Golbat can't learn Fly. But a Pidgey can.

lol, I just took the V from Voltorb's name and got Vincent. XD

Time to finally update! Since my last post, I got the 4th and 5th Gym Badges!

I battled the Celadon Gym and I used Robert and Batman, since they would be the best to use for this gym. Both of them creamed the Celadon Gym, and jumped up a few levels, too. Too bad I found out that Golbat will only evolve into a Crobat after you get the National Dex since Crobat is a 2nd Generation Pokémon. Anyway, I still beat Erika with ease, using Robert and Batman. Then I healed my team and went to the Rocket HQ and took on everyone there. I tried to use my whole team a lot, so they could go up some levels as well. I also decided to use the Thunder Stone that I bought to evolve Vivian into Raichu. At least now Raichu should be better than Pikachu, stat-wise. Anyway, I defeated all the Rocket Grunts and battled Giovanni. The fight was pretty easy, I used Vileplume and Isaac to take down most of Giovanni's Pokémon, except Kangashkan because I thought it was a Ground Type. Man, that Pokémon packs a mega punch! (Pun intended) Unfortunately, I lost Albert during my time in the Rocket HQ, so I put him the Dead Box. Oh well. Thankfully, me only having 5 team members was short lived because I caught a Snorlax named Walter along the way to Fuchsia. I went to Cycling Road and battled all the Bikers there until I arrived a t Fuchsia City. First, I went to the Safari Zone and got the Golden Teeth for the Warden, but also wanted HM03, Surf. I also caught some Pokémon in the Safari Zone. That took me a few tries, but I eventually got Surf and taught it to Isaac. I gave the Warden his teeth back and I got Strength in return. I decided to teach that to Walter. Next up the Fuchsia Gym. I noticed that my team was pretty under leveled, so I trained. In that time, Robert evolved into a Charizard! I trained Robert (and everyone else) up to level 37. The funny this is, is that Batman "evolved" at Level 37. I say "evolved" because, like I said earlier, Golbat won't evolve without the National Dex. Oh, and I also nicknamed Vileplume Evan. Anyway, I proceeded to the Gym and battled Koga (already battled the Gym Trainers)

Walter vs. Koffing
Body Slam - Sludge (Misses) Koffing is Paralyzed
Body Slam - KO

Thanks Dangertrout - My linoone (just evolved) isn't picking up much of anything.
But now for an update on my Ruby....

I got my team up to level 20 (except for Cadjask, I have it at level 18 since I want to get Shedinja). I started out with Linzig and out first, May puts out Wailmer. Okay, back to your ball Linzig, your up Mana. Used Bullet Seed twice and KO'd him. Yes, one down, two to go. Combusken is next, I pull Mana and put out Wurcoontox and use Confusion on Combusken. I take an Ember attack, and Wurcoontox survives, so I hit Combusken with another Confusion only a few hit points left. I take another Ember attack and Wurcoontox is burnt, I decide to keep him out and hit Combusken on more time...Yes, two down one to go, it's a Shroomish. I use a potion on Wurcoontox and get hit with a Leech Seed for my troubles. I use Confusion on Shroomish, I get Mega Drained and Leeched, sorry Wurcoontox, you did an awesome job and will be remembered. Out comes Nuzdot, Fake out, and then Rock Tomb, and....and...I won! Wow, I was so worried that I was at a major disadvantage. Yeah! Save, and return to heal up at Slateport, Box Wurcoontox R.I.P. my friend, and take out Abradabra and give him Exp. Share. Save and breath a major sigh of relief.

So as was mentioned i started a Nuzlocke with Andre the Bulbasaur. Skip the "get pokeball for Oak" stuff and my first catch was a rattata named Panda. Almost lost him in his first battle to a lvl 3 pidgey, but got him to lvl 7eventually. After the Training we went to route 22 and Rowlan the Spearow popped up. To train Rowlan i headed to Viridian Forest, finding Haggis the weedle and Flygon the Caterpie along the way. Once Rowlan and Panda reached level 8, we headed for our rival. Panda took out pidgey with a Critical and Rowlan Pecked Charmander Till it fell.

Edit: Rowlan Crushed the forest no problem and Andre swept the gym. Also, Haggis and Flygon evolved.

About that..... ^_^;

Time for an update! My FireRed Nuzlocke was on hiatus for a little bit since I was just taking a break, but I'm back!

Since we last left off, I received my 5th Badge from Koga! in a very annoying fight Anyway, I played around in the Slot Machines for a little bit and decided I wanted to get the Dratini. I didn't get it just yet. After that, I gave the officers the tea and headed to Saffron City. Kind of weird how they say the road is closed, but magically opens when you give them tea? Whatever. I went to Silph Co. and saw it was overrun by Team Rocket! Oh no! Let's have the 10 year old kid save the city while the cops lie about the road being closed! (unless they didn't want people in Saffron because of Team Rocket...) As usual, I beat Team Rocket easily and finally got the Card Key. That is always a pain to get no matter how many times I play. I battled my Rival and won easily. Don't remember the exact fight, however. :( After that, I received the Lapras, who I didn't feel like naming because I wouldn't be using it. I then proceeded to save the President (of Silph Co.) and battled Giovanni. I vaguely remember using Evan on his Ground Types and then Robert on Kangashkan and maybe another? I should really update around the time I finish playing, not a few days after. So I beat Giovanni and the President entrusted a 10 year old with the Master Ball, the ultimate Poké Ball. Of course. After that, I battled the Fighting Dojo and received a Hitmonchan, named Harley. Boxed, not gonna use. Finally, I went to the Saffron Gym and battled Sabrina. I think I might have missed a few trainers, but oh well. Once again, I don't remember the exact fight. I think I sent out Batman first, used Bite and the realized Psychich Types were super effective. Batman survived and I used some other Pokémon. Whatever, I still won! ;) I then proceeded to Celadon really quickly to get the Dratini. I haven't nicknamed it yet, but I decided to use it in my Black 2 team, since I haven't even thought of that yet. Going to trade that over to Black and possibly breed it. Anyway, I went to Cinnabar after surfing for a while and saved at the Pokémon Mansion. I also went to the Lab to turn my Helix Fossil into Omanyte.

Deaths: Same as last post I'm lazy

Wow, that was a lot of typing. When I battle Blaine I'll write down what happened, so I don't forget. Oh, and Evan is 2 levels higher than everyone because I wanted him to learn Petal Dance and because he won't be used against Blaine.

Thank god for auto-saved content.

About that..... ^_^;

But but but but...Confuse Ray...is SO USEFUL...

Well, glad to see YOU didn't have trouble with Silph. I swear, two of my mons almost died when I did that. Steve does NOT approve.

Started a LeafGreen Nuzlocke yesterday with the usual rules.

Besides Tutorial stuff, MC is a girl named Athena, rival is Ares. Picked Squirtle and named it Poiseidon (see the theme?).
After the other tutorial stuff, I ended up with a Pidgey, another Pidgey, and a Ratata. A Jolly Ratata, which is excellent. I decided to train the Lv. 5 Pidgey, but it got Crit'd to death :(. So, the Ratata (Hermes) became my second party member.

After clearing the Forest (KOing the Metapod I could've caught) I leveled up my Pokemon and curb-stomped Brock with Poiseidon. Got the shoes, and traversed Route 3, catchinga Spearow (Aeolus) along the way. I intended to train it, but then I caught a Zubat (Erebus). I cleared Mt. Moon and stopped in Cerulean.

Another update! (will be my last for about a week or so since I'll be going on vacation until Friday night) Too bad there haven't been that many posts in this thread since my last update. Oh well.

I finished up at the Pokémon Mansion and battled a few trainers here and there. Might have also caught a Pokémon. After that, I stormed into the Cinnabar Gym and beat the trainers with ease. In the battle against Blaine, I used Walter on his first Pokémon and the Isaac finished him off and I received the Volcano Badge. Next, I got stopped Bill and headed to One Island. Let the crazy quest begin... So, I had to go to Two Island to give the Game Corner owner a meteorite, but first I had to go to Three Island to get his daughter. I battled the Bikers and got Lostelle. Unfortunately, I tried catch the Hypno, but failed. I FINALLY gave the Game Corner owner the meteorite and went back to Bill and Celio. Bill brought me back to Cinnabar and I headed to Viridian. Yay, the Gym Leader is back! But who is it? Went through most of the Viridian Gym Leaders, and suffered a loss. I had Walter out and was battling a Marowak which used Boneorang (spelt right?) and it knocked out Walter because I was feeling ballsy and didn't heal. :( R.I.P Walter. Hopefully I'll find a sixth member in Victory Road, or something. Next, was the Viridian Gym Leader Giovanni. Isaac beat Rhyhorn, Nidoking/Queen, and Evan beat the rest (too much lazy). Got the last badge and saved. Sorry guys, but I don't feel like posting my team and such so everything is in my signature. My last post will be better.

So I started a Nuzlocke Challenge yesterday on Pokemon Sapphire but my internet went down so I never started to post.

I began in Littleroot Town and recieved Blitz Level 5 ;255;
I went on to defeat Poocheyena and save Professor Birch; the usual
I made my way to Route 103 and defeated Brendan
I returned to Route 101 to start my journey and caught Bugzy Level 3 ;265;
Sadly after some grinding Bugzy died at Level 5 ;265;
Mourning the loss I went to Route 103 and caught Muncher Level 3 ;263;
and then ventured to Route 102 and caught Bugzy Level 2 ;265;
We began to start grinding and Bugzy ;265; evolved into ;266; on Route 102
After being bored to death by Wally, I hit Route 104 and caught Peeko Level 5 ;278;
Advancing into Petalburg Woods, we met Spore Level 6 ;285;, pummelled Team Aqua and began to head to Rustoboro. Along the way Bugzy ;266; evolved into ;267; and Blitz ;255; evolved into ;256;
Arriving in Rustoboro, we immediately took the Gym Challenge and faced 3 tragic losses. Spore ;285; was under-levelled and destroyed by ;074;'s Rock Tomb, Peeko ;278; and Bugzy ;267; both of whom where weak against Rock types (even though they knew absorb and watergun) felt the wrath of ;299;'s Rock Tomb and perished. After a double kick from ;256; we brought the badge home
Consoling the loss of 3 valued team members, I found Nina Level 7 ;290; on Route 116 and took her in. Shortly afterwards Blitz Level 17 ;256; died from Poisoning, making my 4th death in 5 minutes. To make matters worse, 3 of my strongest died leaving just Muncher ;263; and Nina ;290;
Heading through Rusoboro Tunnel,after major grinding, we found Tempo Level 6 ;293; and chased Team Aqua off.
Setting off for Dewford, Nina ;290; evolved into ;291; and we recieved ;292; for our efforts.
Delivering the letter to Steven, we encountered Lucifer Level 10 ;041; and added him to our party.
We then set sail for Slateport and captured Planty Level 13 ;043; on Route 110.
We delivered Stern's Goods and thrashed Team Aqua. After a little grinding, we returned to Dewford to face Brawly with our more diverse team.
Muncher ;263; evolved into ;264; and ;041; annihilated Brawly earning the KnuckleBadge.
Nemo Level 5 ;129; was added to our Party in Dewford Town before setting sail for Slateport again.
Lucifer ;041; evolved into ;042; before we prepare to face Brendan and Wattson.


;042; Lucifer Level 22
;263; Muncher Level 21
;129; Nemo Level 8
;291; Nina Level 20
;292; Ninjurr Level 20
;043; Planty Level 16


;293; Tempo Level 10

;265; Bugzy- Level 5

been about a week since i posted here, and got through Mt Moon since then.

Before heading into Mt Moon i got Adele the jigglypuff as my Route 3 capture. I then grinded for an hour or 2 until Adele learned pound and Haggis and Flygon evolved. Alond the way we found a Zubat named Klog. Reaching the end of Mt Moon most of my team was on low HP but luckily Flygon wasnt and she wiped out the last 3 enemys. Grabbed the Helix Fossil and exited Mt Moon to find the "mega Movers". Taught both moves to Adele and found Iggy the Sandshrew before heading into Cerulean.

Now to Grind some more before i face the rival. Also forgot where, but andre evolved somewhere along the way.

Team
;002; Andre lvl 17
;012; Flygon lvl 13
;039; Adele lvl 12

I have a lot of ground to cover. This is gonna be a long update. Snattle wasn't a problem at all.

The rules of my run prevent me from using the Purification Chamber until I get to Citadark, at the very least. I was training my Meowth and Natu in Agate Village. If you’ve played this game, you probably remember that guy who kept getting lost in said village. His Grimer critted my Natu with a Sludge attack. I almost lost my Swinub in the fight as well.

I trained the Meowth, evolved him, and purified everyone that I caught in Phenac. So far, so good. The Chobin battles proved to be a big waste of time as Kat and Dexter ripped through his teams. I got my hover bike and proceeded to the Libra. That also proved to be a waste of time, since I was still overleveled from my GRINDAN session for Snattle’s fight. I scared away the Bonsly, got the items, and went to exit the ship.

And lo and behold, there were Snagem grunts, ready to mug me. So I lose the Snag Machine and have to face Miror B. and Zook while looking on helplessly as I kill Nosepass and Zangoose. With those battles out of the way, I get the opportunity to raid Team Snagem’s old base. I was worried about fighting Gonzap. Y’know, all of his mons have Hyper Beam and Sol’s got a defense lowering nature. The first Hyper Beam of our match didn’t even do half damage. I laughed and proceeded to wipe the floor with him.

I got the Snag Machine back, and headed back to Cipher Key Lair to get that Zangoose. This was the first fight in a succession of fights where I should’ve considered doing some more training. The Zangoose, Esperanza, kept on attacking Gabe; this whittled my Hyper Potion stock down to two or three of the things. I had to go and replenish my stock before taking on the Lair.

It’s one of the only places in the game where the Cipher members will unabashedly ceiling-cling and scare the ever-loving crap out of you while doing so. (Citadark’s the other place, if you haven’t figured). After two consecutive fights that I was not aware of, I had to leave and heal. I came back and had one hell of a time catching Paras and Growlithe (Suwako and Josh). I got up to the next floor of the building; there was a healing machine. Further down the hall, there was a staircase. I was curious, but not curious enough to go there immediately. I caught a Shellder (Ryan), on the stairs that led to the third floor.

I healed and went to the basement stairs down the hall. I was jumped by a Cipher Peon. She opened with a Skiploom and Roselia, both level 32. I opened with Gabe and Kat, both level 33.

I didn’t recall Gabe; I just taught him Ice Beam. The Roselia crit oneshotted him with Mega Drain. I sent out Diana; all I needed.

I trained Ryan and evolved him into a Cloyster. We trained a bit and proceeded onward into the Lair, catching some mons and failing against others (Pidgeotto, Magneton, y u do this?) And at long last, we made it to the top floor.

I was feeling good about this raid, I really was. Hell, I trained everyone to level 38 just for this! Then Angic happened, and I lost a third Pokemon to a mon I would later catch. Venomoth kept using one of the status Shadow moves, y’see, so I thought Kat would be fine. One turn, the Venomoth decided to attack. Kat was left at 8 or so health at the mercy of Weepinbell. In retaliation, I then made the generator explode. It just overheated and died. The guy who fought me on the Libra showed up and fought me here, too. I just managed to snag his Arbok (Marion).

I healed, got back to the top floor, and entered Gorigan’s room. I led with Ryan and Dexter. I completely forgot about Gorigan’s Earthquake spam tactic, but it wasn’t enough to put either Ryan or Dexter in danger. I got through his normal Pokemon, only to come face to face with Shadow Primeape and Hypno. (I switched Dexter out for Diana to get rid of his Slowking). It’s Diana and Ryan against these guys. They both use Shadow Storm.

Most people don’t know that the Shadow moves in Gale of Darkness was the beginning of the Physical/Special split of the later game generations. Shadow Storm is, as such, a Special move similar to Surf, that my mons had a 2X weakness against. Ryan couldn’t take two in one turn. As I stared in disbelief at my TV screen, I wondered who I was going to send out next. It turned out there was only one option that would prevent the battle from becoming a bloodbath; Marion. The first turn I sent him out, I healed Diana and used Shadow Half.

It was the last attack I used against the duo. Diana survived that attack, while both opposing mons targeted Marion. I used a couple of Timer Balls and caught them both.

So with Selena and Vant caught, I needed someone to fill the sixth slot on my team. I could wait until I got to Citadark and get a Golduck. Instead, I decided to grab my Trapinch (I caught him a LONG time ago) so I could start GRINDAN. Zyphre gained 17 levels in a couple of hours. He learns Dig at level 41. I fully intend on teaching him Dig, as Flygon is the only mon that can use Dig without having to suffer the consequences of Earthquake spam.


;197;Sol, Lonely, Level 38
;217;Diana, Brave, Level 38
;297;Blake, Brave, Level 38
;328;Zyphre, Naughty, Level 32
;089;Dexter, Quirky, Level 38

I was recording a FR nuzlocke and have since finished it. Not sure what my last update was, since it's been about a month. The final result was I got tired of grinding a replacement for my Jolteon, so I went in to the E4 slightly under level, with a useless lvl 27 pikachu hanging out in the party.
Amazingly enough, only my Snorlax and Golbat died. It was sad, but considering I thought I was going to wipe I can't complain.
If I can locate that game, I'll edit in the final party. I'm sure it's around here somewhere...

Not much of an update, I know. It was going to be way more awesome, but then I got busy and a month passed and I just don't really remember what happened. >.<

Ok so I started a nuzlocke on FireRed today and my rules are as follow:

- No revives
- All Pokémon I catch must be nicknamed
- No duplicates. That means that if I encounter a Pidgey on route 1 as my first Pokemon and on route 2 I encounter one too, I can keep searching 'till I find a different Pokemon and count that as the "first" one.
- "Dead" Pokémon will be perma-boxed.
- I can not use legendaries.
- I can not trade.

So I started on my room and then went downstairs and out of my house. Then I decided to head towards Route 1 when Prof. Oak stopped me. He took me to his lab, and his grandson, Douche, was waiting in there. He gave us a little speech and then I got to choose my first Pokémon. I chose the ;001; and I named him Vinie. I then proceeded to beat the crap out of Douche's Charmander and then I went to my home to get some rest. After that I headed towards route 1, training Vinie to level 7 (Pokémon on there didn't count for the nuzlocke since I didn't had any Pokeballs) and getting a Potion on my way to Viridian. After that I got inside the Pokémon Center and healed, then I went to the PokéMart and got Oak's Parcel.

I went back and delivered the parcel to Oak, who gave me and Douche 5 Pokéballs and a Pokédex. Then I headed up to route 1 and caught a level 2 ;016; that I named Ace. Then I went to route 22, hoping to get a Mankey but I got a ;019; instead. It was level four and I named him Fang. After that I headed back to route 1 to train, and Vinie got to level 10 and Ace got to level 4. Now I will train him and Fang to level 8 before I venture to route and to Viridian Forest.

EDIT: I finished training and I went up to route 2, and the first Pokémon I got was a level 4 ;010; which I named Silver, now I'm training him so he can evolve and then I will go through Viridian Forest hoping to get a Piakchu ;025;


Vinie the ;001; level 10 (M)

Ace the ;016; level 8 (M)

Fang the ;019; level 8 (M)

Silver the ;010; level 6 (M)

Well hey there guys, I just totally signed up for this forum, and I figured, why not making my first post a cheesy advertisement of one of my video Nuzlocke runs?! It's a nuzlocke run of Emerald version, but not just ANY Emerald version! It's a terribly translated version of Emerald we randomly stumbled upon one day and new we had to nuzlocke! So hey, you guys have probably seen way too many Emerald runs as is, but maybe this one's terrible Engrish will warrant enough incentive for another journey on through?!

Here are my partner's (Zyrtec, teh other fella) thoughts regarding it:


"Yo, legit though? THOUGHT WE WERE DONE?! Well think again you sorry-sons-of-lily-liver-lickin-ladies-and-gents, because we're TOO LEGIT TO QUIT

http://oi45.*******.com/33p91yo.jpg

This time around, it's obviously Pokemon ENGRISH Emerald, because only the best games are green, and only the green games are Engrish! MABEE DEJAS LIKE 'EM... GET IT?!

Standard Nuzlocke rules apply, as well as:
NO HEALING ITEMS (until it's inconvenient for us :dubs: )


We hope you guys enjoy this new story, and our same old antics. Let us know what you think!"

Since my Scramble is going really poorly.. I decided to give this a go on a new save file on my emulator [android phone].. I think I will enjoy this more.. and will be able to stick with it as it's more "real"

Emerald Run
Rules:

Pokecenter; unlimited

Repeated Pokemon; allowed

Each patch of grass will be a new location.. as long as the patch of grass is at least 5x5

No items allowed in-battle. no revives at all.

Legendaries are allowed; if my team can survive the battle.. we deserve to use them. 1 legend only per team.


I started out with 'Kippin' the Mudkip, and he was just like me.. a relaxed personality and chill. Once we got the talking with May and Prof out of the way.. we set on our journey.

Our first meeting was with a Poochyena.. unfortunately as we tried to catch it, we crit'd it and missed out. Later we ran into another one to the north of the first PokeCenter and was able to catch it. A bit naive, but not too bad. Patti was now on the squad.

As I was training her, a Wurmple.. yes.. a Wurmple.. pulled out two crits in a row and sent her to the grave.. I honestly couldn't believe it.. since I've never used a Pooch before and was excited to see where we would go.. Naive was decent as well.. but oh well..

Kippin and I ran into a Zigzagoon and we caught him instantly. Zackz is gentle and seems reliable. Unfortunately.. once again.. the crit gods do not want me to be happy early on.. as he fell to a Poocheyna in a trainer battle.. lv5 vs lv5. I thought we had it.. but apparently not.

So far it's been a struggle to find teammates for Kip, but we're still growing strong together so we'll eventually get it together.. hopefully..

My team:

Emerald Nuzlocke pt 2.

A lot of patches of grass between Petalburg and Rustboro.. I might have to adjust the rules so I don't have too many chances at teammates. And I get to bond with the Pokemon I have, blah blah.

Anyways.. I've been working my way up to Rustboro and losing a lot of Pokemon along the way.. I'm really pushing my team more than I should, imo.. which is why so many have died.. which is disappointing because I had a nice Marill I was working with.. and I found another Poochyena that was doing well.. but all went to hell when I pushed him too hard and a Shroomish Effect Spored me into a Poison+Absorb rape that took out 8hp, which was a lot.. ha.


http://i49.*******.com/maxizb.png
Loaf.. he's cool, and I got lucky to find him.. so I had to go for him.

Lax nature, meh.. but he's doing alright so far.

Lurna is doing fine.. Mild nature, has decent moves and holding her own atm.

Muffin is a new addition, Lonely, and I hope can be on my squad for a while, I'll need some stability later on.

Kippin is still the anchor of the team, and hasn't done much lately as I've been working to lvl up my other Pokemon..he's solid.

Swallow is my new girl, Brave nature and is pretty good. [of course it was vs bug pokemon]. I can see her doing well for the squad, so I look forward to her assistance. Glad i found her early.. since I don't think I'll get another chance at a flying type.

http://i50.*******.com/2555560.png

The dead.. so far I'm not thrilled with them dying.. I did want them on my team.. but that was poor training on my part.. I need to fix my ways if I want to survive this journey.

Zackz, Patti, Ponch, Merill, Honch.. RIP. Sorry.

I'll do an Emerald Nuzlocke as well.

Only catch one Pokemon per area, if I fail, too bad.
If a Pokemon faints, it is dead and will be permanently boxed.

Meh. I don't want to put details, so I'll just put my team so far. I saved in Petalburg Forest.

Here are some pics.

That's an optional rule, the only required rules are the one pokemon and the fainting rules. Anything else is optional. :p

10th July 2012, 9:38 PM
naming them is the best part! makes you bond!

But looks like your team is just like mine in the early stages.. since the ratio of Pokemon is like... 90% Pooch, 80% Wurmple, 80% Zigzag, 20% anything else. lol.

Btw, if you ever get a Slakoth.. goodluck to you. That loafing around almost had him die so many times because I keep on forgetting.. + crits.

Nuzlocke is tough.. but its fun. Just want to stop seeing the same 3 Pokemon..

Once I get out of the first few towns and gym.. it will get better.

Update:
My squad and I reached Rustboro with relative ease; after leveling up a bit and trying to avoid crit-hit death. We went through each building and took what we could and went straight to the gym. It was made for Muffin and Kippin.. who combined, were able to handle the building with flair. Kippin evolved quickly after the battle with Rox and my squad is looking decent.

Helped a few men along the way to the Whismur tunnel.. but unfortunately just ran into a Poochyena who we did not feel was best for the team.. so we ignored the route, battled trainers.. and went on our way. Was hoping for a Nincadia [lol? spell check], so I could use Shedinja and be awesome.. but it wasn't meant to be. They decided to tease me by popping up constantly afterwards so I could kill them though.. bleh.
Afterwards, went and headed to Dewford. But before that I decided to box a few Pokemon for now.. as I wanted to trim the fat and unneeded double type coverage.

And Lurna.. took a seat.
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/270.gif

I decided that in any cave with multiple levels.. each level counts as a new route/area.. since it's such a big place, Pokemon availability, etc etc.
Right as I enter the cave.. that fat bastard Makuhita comes out. He's one of those Pokemon you just have to catch.. so we went after it.

Yoko the Makuhita [?], Careful nature, but whatever.. at least it doesn't hit his Atk stat. I decided at this time.. he should just be boxed for later just in case something goes wrong down the line.. he could be useful.
Next level of the cave.. an Abra.. what a damn waste.. as I of course don't catch it.. and it runs instantly.
Next level.. Aron..

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/304.gif

decided to go for it as well.. ole 'blue eyes'. I don't remember the nature.. but doesn't matter. I also don't think it provides much type coverage for my other Pokemon.. but the armor of steel I do believe will be nice.. we'll see!

I ran into more Pokemon in the cave.. and was hoping for a Sableye or Zubat for the battle(s) ahead, but of course couldn't touch them.. and decided to do some leveling up with my special attackers vs water/grass weak. Loaf did some leveling up as well.. and I finally have him close to evolving.. which would bring some nice power to my pretty weak and mediocre team..

I received the Old Rod.. and went fishin'

A good ole Magikarp appeared... durrrp.
http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/129.gif

Magikarp aka Whiskers

Mild nature, boxed.. instantly. No need for that at the moment.. Loaf drained me enough by irritating grinding. But it looks neat..


After it's all said and done.. below is where I am at.. and I am directly in front of the gym.

I've once again had some close calls with death.. mainly Loaf as he is just such a pain in the ***.. and is weak to most everything atm... and can't fire back expect with Scratch.. but nothing major has happened battle-wise.


I truly fear for the gym battle ahead... Fighting types vs my team.. Ehhhhhh.. death feels imminent.

**** me...

http://i49.*******.com/xpbozt.png

Made it to Slateport, battled around working on leveling my Pokemon up, [after we beat the fighting gym with Kippin alone.. Mud-Shooting til they fell.. he took hits well and just kept dropping them. We couldn't risk anyone else going after the gym since we have no advantage on fighters] and doing the tasks inside the town. Went to the route above to test my wild Pokemon luck..

Wasn't really expecting anything.. but hey.. a tike will be fine, could be useful.

http://sprites.pokecheck.org/i/309.gif

Caught the little critter, named her Sydney, and boxed the 'Gentle' pup for now.


"How'd Nora die?"

We went to the trick house.. I wanted to try it out since I've never been. Plus Nora needed to level up a bit, and the wild Pokemon around were an annoyance with the t-waves and Static abilities. Nora has always been able to handle Absorbs and super-effective hits in the past.. giving me at least a chance to get a few hits in before I was in danger.. unfortunately the strong-willed Poke couldn't handle the test at hand. A stun spore + absorb crit along with a Metal Claw miss ****ed my world..

I honestly couldn't believe she fell.. I was hoping to have her around when she evolved and be a staple for my team.. to be that ****ing 'brick wall' and take **** out like a boss. I had high expectations for her, but unfortunately, as a Nuzlocke rookie.. I was careless.

I'm sorry for your loss RNG reporter...

I decided to start a nuzlocke challenge in my emerald today. So I started with Mudkip, named Tank. I went battled May, and all that stuff, got the pokeballs, and entered the first route. Poochyena. Not to my liking, so I took it out and moved on. I didn't use the duplicate rule, and ran into a few more Pooches. Ran into a Wurmple in the Woods, didn't catch that either. Tank was leveling up nice, and I entered the route east of Rustboro.

Finally, something other than Pooch appeared, a Taillow. I weakened it with Tackle, and snagged it. Named her Tweety. Checked Serebii to see if I'd really want a Swellow, found out the movepool sucked, and kept it in my party, but didn't train her. Tank evolved into Marshtomp. Had a close call when I accidentally ran into a double battle with a shroomish and geodude. Absorb could've been the end of Tank with a crit, but we pulled through. I plan on catching Whismur in Rusturf Tunnel, and training it up. That's all so far.

Swellow is awesome man.. very powerful with Peck, Quick Attack, Wing Attack which you get very soon.. I think it's worth a go if you expect to beat the fighting gym. Very easy to level up too.. try him out, it's early! Hopefully you get something cool in the Granite Cave. gl bro.


__________________

Past Slateport, up North.. after Route 110 which I retrieved an Electrike, battled a few weak trainers + May.. I reached Mauville. Not too much to do here, so I prepared to face the gym... but before that, I went to see what Pokemon would pop up for me West of Mauville.
http://i50.*******.com/9qa8v5.png
Out came an Illumise. Never used one before.. so it looks neat. After googling it's moveset.. I cry a little inside realizing how pathetic it is.. but regardless.. I keep it in the group as it can learn Wish and Moonlight.. which might be needed for my team later. We'll see.. but again, what a trashy piece of Pokemon.
Illumise aka Blurp, lvl 15 atm. Quirky nature.
http://i50.*******.com/30kue76.png
After I caught the little bug.. I did a few level training.. then went to the gym. Team was 27 Marshtomp, 26 Breloom, 24 Vigoroth, 15 Illumise. I took no risk.. as I heard tough stories about this gym.. so with Kippin and Muffin.. we were able to run through the gym with ease.
http://i50.*******.com/30ses7l.png
Now that the gym battles are over.. I don't really know which direction to go to be quite honest.. never played this story. But I do know I'm going to head East.. battle some trainers til I reach the water.. then head North of Mauville and go to the Battle House and fight that family, and see what's next for me. I'm worried about the Battle House.. I don't need to lose anyone right now.. especially since my team is very limited atm.. but with each of my Pokemon evolving once.. the power is starting to come.
To be continued..

Side comment: After looking on Serebiidex, it looks like most of my Pokemon EV gains are slow or medium-slow; which really is depressing.
Marshtomp is standard starter EXP Growth.. fine.
Breloom is a Fluctuating EXP Growth.. which is...something I don't understand.
Vigoroth is slow.. which sucks.. because I don't feel like I have the patience to ev train a slow leveing up Pokemon.
So I'm not sure what my next step will be.. but I do see Normal typing becoming less necessary.. for now though, I hope he continues to pull his own weight.

Breloom is a Fluctuating EXP Growth.. which is...something I don't understand.

Fluctuating is, along with Erratic, one of two EXP groups that change their rate of EXP growth as they level up. "Fluctuating" means that at first, the Pokčmon requires much less EXP to level up, but then it slows down as it gets closer to level 50-- at said level, it evens out, then starts being way slower. Erratic is the opposite-- Pokčmon in this group level up at an agonizingly slow pace early on, but then after level 50, they get a large spike in their level up rate, actually requiring the least EXP of any Pokčmon to get to level 100.

Also, that Vigoroth is gonna be awesome once he fully evolves. Sure, Truant sucks, but give him a Hyper Beam TM from the department store. Now, since every other turn is useless already with Truant, Hyper Beam effectively has no recharge turn. So, a 150 base power move(actually 225 with STAB, and then 247.5 if you further boost it with a Silk Scarf) that has no drawbacks beyond its low PP. Pretty awesome.

Started my first ever nuzlocke today.I decided itd be fun to try Leafgreen.

Extra rules I am following:

I may not level up my pokemon higher than the leader I am about to face. Against the Elite four, my pokemon may not be higher than the champs pokemon.

I may not catch multiples. However, I'm adding an extra twist. If I see a pokemon I already have, I may not catch it, and it counts as the pokemon for the route and I may not catch any more.

Okay, so with that stuff out of the way, now for where I am now. I am training my team to face Brock.

My team so far:

Bulbasaur[M] (Peat) lvl.10
Mankey[F] (Fasha) lvl.10
Pidgey[F] (Rapunzel) lvl.9

Dont ask about Pidgey's dumb nickname, my brain farted

Thanks for the tip RNG Reporter, I've decided to go ahead and use Tweety the Taillow. She's now level 15.

I've decided to add some restrictions to my challenge to spice it up a little. I can't use any items during battles with gym leaders or the pokemon league. I am not allowed to use any rare candies to level up my pokemon. I may add a couple more if I think of any.

I am rather frustrated since I KOed the whismur I ran into in Rusturf Tunnel. I really wanted it but it was level 6 and couldnt take a quick attack. I'll keep my pokemon at the level they're currently on to avoid this problem in the granite cave...

quick update on my nuzlocke.

Instead of leveling my whole team to level 18 before the fight with the rival, i just evolved Adele with a Moon Stone and hoped for the best. Iggy Took out pidgeotoo no problem, while panda dealt with rattata, Flygon took out abra, and Adele took out Charmander. After healing we fought through the nugget bridge and route 25 no problem. Caught a Bellsprout named Gould in Route 24 and taught Adele Secret Power along the way. On to Misty where Andre swept the gym with no problems and reached level 22. on the way to Vermillion i caught a meowth and in vermillion i traded Rowlan for Ch'Ding. CH'Ding also knocked out the wild Diglett, so i get nothing for Digletts Cave.

Team
;002; Andre lvl 22
;012; Flygon lvl 17
;027; Iggy lvl 16
;019; Panda lvl 14
;083; CH'DING lvl 17

Ok another update for me. So I got to Dewford, and went straight for the Granite Cave. I went inside and found myself a Makuhita. I captured it, named him Larry, and decided to train him.

That's when I went back to Dewford and grabbed an Old Rod, and ended up fishing myself a Magikarp.

Once Larry was level 15 I moved to the next floor, and like RNG reporter, treated each floor like a new area. I ran around and to my surprise, a Sableye appeared! I was excited, not sure why since he's completely trash statwise, but after a somewhat long battle, and the sacrifice of my good buddy Magikarp, I was somehow able to catch it despite it's low capture rate. Nicknamed her Zanna and kept her in the party.

Next floor resulted in an Abra, which I didn't catch despite my Great Ball's efforts. When I got to Steven I ran into a Zubat which I KOed on accident, but didn't really care.

After a bit of grinding up to level 18 for my three main Pokes, I went to the gym. I took out some trainers, and then beat Brawly with ease with Taillow's wing attacks.

So I went to Slateport and went straight to route 110 to see what I'd find, and encountered an Electrike, which I caught but did nothing else with. And then I pretty much delivered the goods, beat up some trainers, evolved Tweety into Swellow, and that brings me to my current situation before my rival battle with May.
