    So recently I began a Nuzlocke challenge on Ruby, my first attempt at one. I originally wasn't going to post here but meh, changed my mind, a lot has happened though, so I'll spare you guys from the majority of the smaller details.

    Randomised my starter, of course I ended up with Torchic, which I nicknamed Charmander, a theme for my nicknames. Before the first gym caught two Zigzagoon, a Poochyena, a Wurmple, a Cascoon, a Nincada and a Whismur. Mostly used Charmander, now a Combusken, for the gym, but I also briefly trained up one of my Zigzagoon named Sentret, who is in fact still on my team, and my Wurmple called Caterpie, which became a Beautifly. I also raised Kakuna the Cascoon into a Dustox, but then...

    In the Dewford gym, I got too cocky. I thought Dustox could take down a gym trainer's Meditite, not knowing it had Confusion...RIP. But lessons were learned, and I soon improved in team maintenance and management. Caterpie the Beautifly dominated the rest of the gym with Gust. I also caught a Makuhita who I named Mankey, and a Magikarp named Remoraid.

    I feared Wattson, but he was not much problem thanks to Combusken. Neither was Maxie and Flannery. Along the way I picked up a Minun named Electabuzz, and also a fossil that I later revived into a Lileep called Omanyte, and a Spoink called Drowzee.

    Going into the fifth gym with only one death so far, I was feeling confident, not knowing that it would claim two of my team members. Heartbreakingly my Combusken fell to a gym trainer's Linoone, thanks to a critical hit Headbutt. Ugh. Remoraid, now a Gyarados, was my best hope against Norman with Intimidate, and everything was going well, but unfortunately Slaking broke through with a critical hit Facade which downed Gyarados, revenge was sweet from Mankey my Hariyama.

    I decided to put Lileep on my team realising its potential, unfortunately it came up against a Rollout-ing Wailmer, and each of my three Bullet Seeds only hit two times. If just one had hit more, Lileep would still be alive, but alas, it had to be sacrificed to Wailmer for the greater good, despite my best attempts.

    So with three quick fire losses, I needed to regroup. Thankfully I nabbed a Tentacool named Shellder which I quickly evolved, and trainer all my team members without many problems. I thought Winona would be rough, but Electabuzz (Minun) dominated most of the gym, with Shellder (Tentacruel) and Ice Beam taking down Altaria.

    So now I go forward to pastures new. All things considered my challenge is going well enough. One annoying thing so far is that, including my team member, I have bumped into SIX Zigzagoon/Linoone as my Nuzlocke encounters.

    I had to solve the crisis at the Weather Institute since Team Magma was causing trouble. I battled against several Team Magma grunts before reaching the second floor and battling against Magma Admin Courtney. I defeated her Numel and Mightyena easily with my Azumarill and Blaziken, then I obtained a Castform from one of the scientists there as a thank you gift. I removed its Mystic Water and attached it to my Azumarill instead, then I deposited it in my PC. I headed back outside and I continued northeast toward Fortree City, but my rival appeared and I had to battle them. I defeated Shroomish with Swellow, Numel with Azumarill and Marshtomp with Hariyama. I finished that and I eventually arrived in Fortree City after battling some more trainers on Route 119. I healed my injured Pokemon at the local Pokemon Center, then I went shopping at the local Poke Mart. I saved the game after.

    I headed to the Fortree City Gym after exploring the city, but the path was blocked by something invisible, so I couldn't access it yet. I decided to visit Route 120 in the meantime and I battled some trainers there; I also encountered a wild Absol and I captured it, although it took a while to weaken it. I met Steven Stone on the bridge there and he gave me his company's product: the Devon Scope. I battled a Kecleon that was hiding there, and then I returned to Fortree City. I battled the invisible Kecleon that was blocking the path to Winona's Gym, and I captured it. I entered the building at long last, and I started battling the Gym trainers. I had to push through the bars inside the Gym on my way to Winona's place, but I chose to the Gym to heal my Pokemon before reaching her. I also bought some Potions at the local Poke Mart before returning to the Gym. I saved before battling Winona.

    Today I took on Tate and Liza. Before reaching them I decided to train up some Dark types to avoid getting battered, so I switched out my Beautifly for my Cacnea to train into a Cacturne. My Nuzlocke encounter for the route west of Mossdeep happened to be a Sharpedo so I got that too and replaced my Linoone with it. I trained everyone to level 38 and taught Grumpig Light Screen and put Protect on Cacturne, Sharpedo and Tentacruel just in case. Turns out the battle was easier than expected as Leech Seed from Cacturne helped out, as definitely did the Light Screen. No casualties! So that's seven gym badges and four deaths, but I sense things are about to get insane soon enough...

    I finally challenged Winona to a Pokemon battle at the Fortree City Gym, and she sent out her Swellow first. I used my Manectric against it and I won that match with Shock Wave. Winona switched to Skarmory after that, and I used Blaziken. I had it use Fire Spin, but that wasn't enough to defeat Skarmory. As luck would have it, it countered with Aerial Ace and Blaziken got hurt badly. I switched back to Manectric and I had it use Shock Wave to beat Skarmory. After it fainted, Winona switched to her Altaria. I used my Azumarill against it, but its Water-type attacks barely did any damage. I swapped out to my Manectric once again, but it got hurt by DragonBreath. Luckily it managed to land a critical hit Shock Wave attack that beat Altaria. I used my Gloom and Hariyama against Winona's Pelipper after that, and I defeated her and won the Feather Badge and the Aerial Ace TM. I saved the game after.

    I left the Fortree City Gym and I healed my Pokemon at the Pokemon Center. I used some of the reward money from the Gym battle to purchase Secret Base furniture, then I went over to Route 20 and made a Secret Base in a clump of grass. I decorated it with some tables and dolls that I bought in Slateport City, then I headed out. I battled some more trainers on Route 120 when I got to the rainy area, then I walked through a small labyrinth of grass. I found a pond and I Surfed on it until I entered the Scorched Slab and I got a Sunny Day TM there. I battled a Bug Maniac when I got back on land, and then I battled some Ninja who were hiding behind panels. I couldn't access the Ancient Tomb where Registeel was resting yet, so I just collected some berries and moved out to Route 121. I spotted some Team Magma grunts on Mt. Pyre's pier, and I saved the game before chasing after them.

    I Surfed toward Mt. Pyre since that's where Team Magma was. I headed into the main structure after I arrived on the island, and I talked to the people inside. I decided to head to the mountain's summit before battling the other trainers. Once I was back outside, I had to walk through some tall grass; I captured a Vulpix that appeared as I moved up the mountain. I eventually encountered some fog as I arrived at the cemetery portion of Mt. Pyre, but I continued upwards. I battled some Team Magma grunts on my way to the shrine, and I eventually confronted Maxie. He stole the Blue Orb from the shrine and Team Magma retreated. I obtained the Red Orb from the old lady, and then I battled some Pokemon in the tall grass. I captured a Duskull and I tried to look for a Chimecho, but I decided to head back down and battle the trainers. I arrived inside the mountain and I saved on the third floor.

    I battled the last trainers at Mt. Pyre, then I headed north until I arrived at Route 121. I was near the Safari Zone, so I decided to capture some Pokemon there. I wandered around the tall grass for several minutes and I captured a wild Pikachu and a wild Oddish. I tried to capture a Girafarig, but it fled before I was able to catch it. I left the Safari Zone after my time ran out, and I headed east. I battled some more trainers there and then I finally arrived in Lilycove City. I visited the Pokemon Center and I healed my Pokemon there. I headed to the Department Store after that, but my rival was blocking the way. I had to defeat them in order to finally access it, and I purchased some items there. I left the Department Store and I visited the art museum and some of the other buildings around town. I heard that Team Magma was hiding in a cove near the city and I saved on the way there.

    I Surfed near the coast of Lilycove City and I found the Team Magma hideout inside a cove. I battled some Team Magma grunts as soon as I arrived, then I headed deeper into the hideout since I wanted to stop Team Magma's plans. I battled more Team Magma grunts as I made my way around, and I eventually found an office where there were some Electrode and a Master Ball. I got the Master Ball and I teleported to another section of the hideout. I eventually reached the end of the hideout, but I had to battle against Tabitha. He sent out his Numel and I used my Azumarill's Surf attack to defeat it. I switched to Blaziken and I beat Tabitha's Mightyena with Double Kick. Finally, I used my Swellow against his Camerupt and I defeated Tabitha. Unfortunately, Team Magma's submarine managed to get away. I left the hideout and I healed my Pokemon at the Pokemon Center before chasing after them.

    Since beating the Elite 4,I have done a few things.First of all,my family congratulated me and a TV Report about a strange Pokemon roaming Hoenn came.I picked Blue which means Latios will roam Hoenn.I went to Prof.Birch's Lab and he upgraded my Pokedex to national mode.I tried to find Latios but to no avail.I decided to go to Slateport City and board S.S. Tidal.There,I battled many trainers.I then went to Battle Frontier where I met Scott.I participated at the various battle facilities until I got enough BP for my Pokemon to learn Tutor moves:Fire Punch and Ice Punch for Gardevoir,ThunderPunch for Sceptile and Rock Slide for Aggron.I found a wild Sudowoodo which I just defeated for some experience.I went to Artisan Cave and got a few Vitamins.I exited out of the cave and saved the game.Now,my game is mainly over.Just a few things are left:Capturing Legendaries Latios,Groudon,Kyogre and Rayquaza,rematching the gym leaders to train some more and finally battle Steven Stone,the former champ.

    After finishing all the tasks in Lilycove City, I headed to the coast and I Surfed east towards Mossdeep City. I encountered some Wingull and Tentacool in the water and they started to annoy me; I eventually decided to use Max Repel in order to avoid running into them. I found some Dive spots but I couldn't access them yet. I battled countless Swimmers along the water and I eventually reached an island where a Treasure Hunter lived. He wanted to trade Shards for evolutionary stones, but I didn't have enough for the trade. I left and I Surfed a little bit more until I arrived at the beach in Mossdeep City. I healed my Pokemon at the local Pokemon Center and I visited the houses around town. I went to the Poke Mart and I bought some items there including the new Dive Ball that I would save for later. I headed to the Space Center and after talking to people there I headed to the local Gym.

    I just beat the elite four again, while training up my anorith. I am working on my pokedex, and I have 172/200. I'm almost there!
    3DS FC: 5043 1366 9389

    Looking for more secret bases! Message me your QR code, and I'll send you back mine.

    Looking for that extremespeed linoone with adamant or jolly (when it comes out). If you're gonna get one, I'd appreciate it. I can clone it if needed.
    I'm willing to sell my soul for it

    I entered the Mossdeep City Gym and I went around on the moving tiles trying to find some Gym trainers to battle. I managed to find a few but I had to move some switches in order to access the others that were scattered around the Gym. I had to leave the Gym eventually since my Pokemon got injured. I returned to the Gym after visiting the Pokemon Center and then I finally reached Tate and Liza's spot and challenged them. They sent out their Solrock and Lunatone and I used my Blaziken and Azumarill. I had Blaziken attack Lunatone with Sky Uppercut and Azumarill attacked both Lunatone and Solrock with Surf. Those attacks did some damage, but Liza and Tate healed their Pokemon. I eventually switched Blaziken with Manectric since Lunatone had attacked it with Psychic, and I won that battle with Azumarill's Surf attack. I saved after getting the Mind Badge and Calm Mind TM.

    It's been a long time since I last posted here. Anyway I finally got hold of a working link cable and transferred each of the ruby version exclusives onto my sapphire file -making sure that all of them were female so that I can breed them later. After that I retarted my ruby file and transferred females of all the starters and the fossil pokemon. Just a while ago I was playing sapphire and came across a female illumise which has a 1% encounter rate. I caught it in my third try. I've since re-arranged the pokemon in my pc by the hoenn dex. The only breedable I'm missing now is feebas.

    I headed out to the Mossdeep City Pokemon Center after battling Liza and Tate for the Mind Badge. I healed my Pokemon there and then I headed over to the Poke Mart to purchase some items. I decided to visit Shoal Cave before leaving to chase after Team Magma so I Surfed north from Mossdeep City. I battled some wild Pokemon in the water and then I found some Swimmers who wanted to battle as well. I eventually arrived inside Shoal Cave after battling some trainers outside, and I Surfed around the cave since it was high tide. I battled a few wild Pokemon and collected some Shoal Shells. I picked up some other items and caught a wild Spheal as well before leaving the cave. I Surfed south until I arrived at Route 127 and I battled some trainers who were hanging around the islands there. I eventually used Dive and I traveled underwater in search of Team Magma's stolen submarine.

    So, today I finally finished my training, and decided to go for it. My first ever Nuzlocke challenge would come to a head, and my team were as follows, all at level 52:

    Mankey the Hariyama
    Earthquake
    Fake Out
    Bulk Up
    Brick Break

    The leader of the team, if you will, and the longest serving of my current party. Brick Break for STAB, Bulk Up for potential setups, Fake Out for a quick health damager, Earthquake just in case.

    Drowzee the Grumpig
    Psychic
    Confuse Ray
    Calm Mind
    Reflect

    Psychic for STAB, Reflect for defense, Calm Mind for setups and Confuse Ray for annoyance.

    Shellder the Tentacruel
    Surf
    Ice Beam
    Sludge Bomb
    Toxic

    Surf and Sludge Bomb for STAB, Ice Beam for Dragons, Toxic for possible residual damage.

    Dewgong the Sharpedo
    Surf
    Crunch
    Hyper Beam
    Strength

    Surf and Crunch for STAB, Hyper Beam for hard damage. Strength purely because I couldn't be bothered to replace it.

    Pidgeotto the Crobat
    Fly
    Aerial Ace
    Confuse Ray
    Shadow Ball

    Fly and Aerial Ace for STAB, Confuse Ray for annoyance, Shadow Ball for Ghosts.

    Pineco the Electrode
    Thunderbolt
    Light Screen
    Double Team
    Hyper Beam

    Thunderbolt for STAB, Hyper Beam for hard hits, Light Screen for defense and Double Team for hax.

    So, with my team assembled, I honestly was still super worried, mostly about Drake and Steven. But I had come this far, and although Pidgeotto and Pineco were late additions, my team had held me through up until this point, and there was to be no giving up now, our fallen team-mates that came before us had to be avenged! Also I switched the items around such as Quick Claw and Lax Incense between members.


    Sidney

    Always was going to be the easiest member. Sent out Mankey, got in a lot of Bulk Ups, and proceeded to demolish his entire team with Brick Break. No sweat.

    Phoebe

    Bit more worrisome. Pidgeotto got some good use on both Dusclops with Shadow Ball, and Dewgong took out Sableye. Didn't know if her Bannette knew Thunderbolt, so I just used Pineco's own Thunderbolt. Safely navigated.

    Glacia

    Pretty much the same as Sidney, Mankey used Bulk Up a load of times then swept, though was annoying with Hail, and was very wary of Glalie's Explosion and Walerin's Sheer Cold.

    Drake

    So after much deliberation, I decided to give Drowzee its first participation. And what a participation! Thanks to Reflect and Confuse Ray, Drowzee was able to set up a bunch of Calm Minds on the Shelgon, and then swept with Psychic! I was very worried of Salamence but actually the biggest problem came from both Flygon who wanted to try their evasion hax on me, but in the end I got through! Very worried beforehand and very relieved and proud afterwards.


    Having gotten through the Elite Four I was now left to face Steven. Through either skill or luck, all six of my party were still alive. But Steven would be my toughest test yet, with Steel and Rock types, including his almight Metagross. It would all come down to this...

    Steven

    Since he was to lead with Skarmory, I decided to use Pineco. Since it could barely damage me I used this opportunity to get six Double Teams off on Pineco, although Skarmory did use Spikes once. Then a few Thunderbolts, mixed in with a Hyper Beam to get Steven to waste a Full Restore, meant it was 6 on 5 and I had maximum evasion.

    Expecting his Claydol I was surprised when his Aggron was sent out, so I stayed in, it tried to Earthquake but thankfully missed and Pineco took it out. Two down!

    Again expecting Claydol, instead out came his big gun Metagross. By some luck Pineco's Thunderbolt managed to paralyze it and it couldn't move! So I set up a Light Screen to wall damage, but then unfortunately luck turned. Metagross pulled off an Earthquake and took down Pineco...defeated, but its contribution will never be forgotten. RIP Pineco the Electrode...

    Undeterred, out came Drowzee to pull off heroics once again. But its only damaging move was Psychic, 0.25x effective against Metagross! But thankfully Confuse Ray whittled down some health, and with Reflect's help too I managed once again to get six Calm Minds up. But then, a Full Restore! Luckily even with a five level disadvantage Drowzee remained faster, and Psychic did tons of damage, eventually after much struggle felling the beast!

    With Metagross down I felt good about things all of a sudden. Expecting Armaldo I was once again surprised as Cradily came out. It poisoned Drowzee with Sludge Bomb but ultimately offered no threat and was soon felled also.

    Once again I didn't get what I was expecting, Claydol being sent out. Psychic nearly took it out, but a critical hit Earthquake almost hampened my chances! Another Full Restore was used, but thanks to Confuse Ray Drowzee shook it off and took down its third team member of the game! Truly one of the VIPs of my league run!

    With this in mind, as Armaldo was the last Pokemon out, I decided to not risk Drowzee. Noting that Shellder the Tentacruel had not yet seen a battle in the league, I gave it the honor of the last kill, as it had proved so useful during my quest to get this far. A few Surfs, mixed with Steven's last Full Restore, and Armaldo was down.

    With that, the league, and a first ever Nuzlocke victory, was mine! Woohoo! I don't think I've ever been so happy to defeat a Pokemon game in a long time!



    So, a quick evaluation of my surviving team:

    - With me since Granite Cave and me only having one badge. Soon became the dominant Fighting type, helping me through important wins against Wattson and Norman amongst others, and then beating two of the Elite Four single handed. One of my two main bros in the end, and well deserving.

    - Found on Jagged Pass, the main special attacker on my team, and was always there to contribute although perhaps not always the most noticed. That is, until the Elite Four, where it toppled Drake by itself and half of Steven's team. The other of my two main bros, I don't know how I would have won without it.

    - Fished up on Route 105, and quickly became an awesome Pokemon, ploughing through most Pokemon in its way. Would not have defeated Winona without it, and got me through some key victories, and picked me up after a bad run of fallen Pokemon. A worthy hero also.

    - Fished up on Route 124, for the purpose of defeating Tate and Liza. Greatly helped in that battle amongst others, and although not the best defensively it managed to defy that and stick through with me until the very end. A powerful ally and worthy of the journey.

    - Found in Victory Road. Only joined me at the end of my journey but showed its worth by evolving and greatly helped out with Phoebe. It would have achieved even more greatness had I found it earlier.


    So proud of these guys. But let us not forget the ones who gave their lives for my cause:

    - One of my first captures and evolutions, and also my first death. Facing a Meditite in Dewford Gym was perhaps not the best idea when it, unexpectedly to me, had Confusion in its moveset. A harsh reality of expecting everything in a Nuzlocke.

    - A particularly heartbreaking one being my starter, and also single handedly taking down Roxanne and also helping out with Wattson a bunch. Alas, it was the victim of a critical hit Headbutt from a Linoone in Petalburg Gym.

    - Another heartbreaking one, being my main powerhouse at the time defeating Flannery, and especially helped with its Intimidate. But unfortunately it could not take a critical hit Facade from Norman's Slaking, as I doubt many things could.

    - The third in a quick fire series of losses, decided to use this lil guy as my replacement for Gyarados. Unfortunately Bullet Seed proved too weak, and was the victim of a Rollout from a trainer's Wailmer. So much potential lost.

    - A devastating loss, obtained along with Sharpedo for Tate and Liza and greatly helped. It had wiped the floor with four of Wallace's Pokemon but due mostly to my lack of foresight it fell to Milotic's Ice Beam. Tragic, but a real hero.

    - Only on my team for a short time, but boy did it prove itself in the League, helping with Phoebe and taking down a third of Steven's team by itself.


    Final Record
    Losses: 6



    So ends my first ever Nuzlocke challenge, and all things considered, at a rate of less than a death per badge I think I did rather well. Think a fourth gen Nuzlocke awaits! (Boy was this a long post)

    I eventually found the location of the missing submarine and I resurfaced at the Seafloor Cavern. I entered the main cavern and I battled some Team Magma grunts after pushing a boulder out of the way. I headed deeper into the cave and I eventually found more puzzles to solve including some more boulders that needed to be pushed out of the way and some currents that sent me around and confused me. I eventually found Groudon's cavern after battling against Courtney, and I met Maxie there. He talked about his plans and then I had to battle against him. He sent out his Mightyena and I used Hariyama against it. I won that battle with Brick Break and I used my Manectric against his Crobat. I used Thunderbolt to defeat it and I finally used my Azumarill against Maxie's Camerupt. I won that battle with Surf and I defeated Maxie at long last. Groudon left the cavern and I saved at the surface.

    I have been searching for Chimecho on the top of Mt. Pyre for almost 2 hours and who knows how many encounters. It's a 2% encounter rate but I can not find it to save the life of me.

    Steven Stone arrived to tell me and Maxie that Groudon was causing droughts all around Hoenn and it needed to be stopped. In order to take care of that, I had to go over to Sootopolis City where the Cave of Origin was, which was where Groudon was hiding now. I Surfed around the sea and I found Sootopolis City but I had to use Dive to go underwater. I did that and I resurfaced in the lake in the middle of the city. I visited the local Pokemon Center and I healed my Pokemon there and I bought some items at the Poke Mart as well before heading over to Cave of Origin. Once I was actually inside the cave, I had to wander around until I reached the very bottom. I found Groudon in the lava and I battled against it. I was able to put it to sleep quite easily and that made it easy to capture in an Ultra Ball. I solved the crisis and I headed back out to Sootopolis City. I saved near the Gym.
