    I wouldn't say that one is more fun than the other. You certainly have more options in SS due to having more places, but I would say that you should go with the one that has pokémon you find more fun.

    I am certainly enjoying my SS nuzlocke though.

    So I finally progressed enough to give another report.

    After losing Victor, I went to train AgentSmith to get him to a good level. While doing this at the Lake of Rage, I missed catching a Pineco as it selfdestructed on AgentSmith (barely harming him...). After that, I trained Nick and Silver in preparation for Morty, planning to use the two of them and Jenna to take him on. I then worked on rounding off my other pokémon's levels, which resulted in me losing Cecelia to a Venonat of all things that poisoned and confused it and then took it out with a crit confusion. I added Amy (the Poliwag) to my team and started training her and also decided to stop traing Bella, using her as an official HM Slave until I get TMs that can make her actually usable.

    After this, I headed for Morty. Jenna 1HKO'd his Gastly and first Haunter. Nick then took on the Genger, beating it with two paybacks after the Lum Berry sucked up a hypnosis. Jenna came back out for the last Haunter and took it down with ease.

    I then saved and traveled to Union Cave, where I plan to train and then get to the Ruins of Alph. Only after that will I finally head to the lighthouse.

    I explored and defeated all the trainers on Route 38 and 39. I also planted some Oran berries in the pots and fed them to the Miltank, allowing me to get the Seal Case. I then went to Olivine City, where I got the Good Rod and went to the Lighthouse. I traveled to the top, and accepted the request to get medicine.

    I taught surf to Sadie, and traveled through Routes 40 and 41, where I battled trainers along the way. My Flaaffy, Chase, evolved to an Ampharos in one of the trainer battles. In Cianwood City, I got the medicine, and then explored a little. Eusine was waiting for me after I met Suicune, and he battled me. I actually had a bit of trouble with him. His Electrode and Haunter put three of my Pokemon in the red, but then I eventually defeated him.

    After I trained a little at sea, I came back to Cianwood City and went to the gym. The trainers were no match to my Slowpoke, Sadie, but Chuck gave me some trouble. His Primape quickly went down to Sadie's Confusion, but Poliwrath put Sadie and Chase into the red. I knew I couldn't put in Isabel or Quill, so I decided to put in my Heracross, Vinny. He knew Aerial Ace, so I thought it wouldn't be too hard. He put Vinny to sleep... twice. He was in the red, but I decided to risk it and attacked once more. I made the right choice, because a critical hit later I got the fifth badge. : )

    Egads! I've gone awhile without updating!

    Before I got to Ecruteak City, I caught an Abra (Psy)! Soon after I got to Ecruteak City, I completed the Burned Tower. Then I trained and caught a Magnemite (Cyclone). I got to Olivine City before heading back. On the way to Olivine City, I evolved Abra into Kadabra. I soon found my friend wanting a Golem, so we traded and traded back. With my new Alakazam, I thought I would destroy all! Boy was my mind changed! Morty was trouble. Alakazam was faster than everything! Since Gastly, Haunter and Gengar all were part poison, I figured this would be a cake-walk. Gengar survived a Psybeam and killed Psy. I sent out Cyclone and it managed to take out Gengar due to its part steel typing. But Haunter kept putting it to sleep! I soon took it out by luckily waking up at the right times. I got the Fog Badge and moved on to Cianwood City. On the way however, Cyclone met its demise with Tentacruel. However one good thing came out of this. Ricksta took Tentacruel out and evolved into Graveler. Too bad my friend was away for the weekend. Oh well.

    I got challenge to Eusine after chasing Suicune away. He took out Ricksta out with Drowsee, something I thought I could handle. After that, the fight was smooth. I fished for a Krabby. I caught one and it soon died. I fought Morty after catching a Tentacool on a different route. Morty was beaten with another loss. Tentacool was needed to win. It served me well.

    I withdrew Zubat out of the P.C. using it as a fly slave. However I soon had to use it as a death otter for Bean. Too bad. I caught yet ANOTHER Krabby, hoping it could help. It learned Metal Claw and fought a hiker, thinking it would be easy. Sadly, Onix outsped Krabby and another one bites the dust. I was starting to lose hope. I caught ANOTHER Tentacool (Blooper) and then I entered a bug catching contest. I caught a Caterpie and it got boxed. I arrived in Mahogany Town and destroyed the Lake of Rage. I beat the Rocket Hideout rather fast and caught an Electrode (*smirk*) to use. I challenge the seventh gym before the sixth. Yes, that's right. The gym leader was easy except Bean died trying to help against Piloswine. I don't know why, but when I do a Nuzlocke, my starter always dies at some point. I think I'm cursed! Electrode took care of the rest. I got the seventh badge and gone to train a lot for Jasmine, for I don't have a fire type. This could cause problems for me. While training, Tentacool evolved into Tentacruel! I knew soon I would have a much better chance against Jasmine. I unexpectedly ran into Entei. Oh the torture that held!

    After much training, Tentacruel dominated Jasmine. OHKO's were coming just like that! And this is where I am now. Sorry if this seems like a chapter to a novel, but I played WAAAAAAAAY too much since my last post.

    I'm gonna start a Platinum Nuzlocke, and these will be my rules:
    -Nicknames are compulsory.
    -I can only catch the first Pokemon I encounter on each route.
    -1hp down from Poisoning counts as Dead.
    -No legendaries.
    I'll be updating regularly, and I've already decided to have Chimchar as my starter... This is my first Nuzlocke ever, so I'm going a bit easy on myself and allowing healing items. =| But who knows, there might be some potion shortage or whatnot in the future... XD

    Continuing on my quest to Nuzlocke all generations, I started my Diamond Nuzlocke yesterday.

    -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

    So I started out with Chimchar and named him Goku. /original After going through all the beginning game nonsense, I caught a Bidoof on Route 101 (named Slavka) and then a Starly on Route 102 (Avery).
    Now I'm training up Goku and Avery on Rt 102 before continuing on to Jubilife City.

    Okay, so I'm not even at my first badge yet, but oh well. I chose Chimchar as my starter, as I promised, and named him Alexander because his nature was Bold. Then I caught a lv3 female Starly on Route 201 and named her Stella. The first Pokemon I met on Route 202 was a Bidoof, which I decided to KO since I'm not really fond of these creatures. So I arrived at Jubilife City, got my Pokétch, yadda yadda. I have yet to battle my rival, Raldo (lolwut?). So here's my progress so far:

    Alive
    Chimchar, Alexander, lv8
    Starly, Stella, lv7

    Dead
    None, yet!

    After delivering my rival's parcel in Jubilife City, I received my complimentary Poketch. Then I fought my rival on route 203 and easily beat him. In the tall grass, I caught myself a male Shinx, named Lex. I trained for a while and also made a stop on route 204 where I captured a male Budew (Christophe). Passing through Oreburgh Gate, I stumbled upon a Zubat, but accidentally KO'd it. Unfortunate, but oh well. On Route 207, I came across a Geodude (although I was hoping for Machop), caught it, and named him Brock. He was quickly replaced though, as I found an Onix (Metalix) in Oreburgh Mine. I trained Metalix for a few levels, contemplating using a Steelix in my final team, but decided against it. I'm very indecisive about my team right now...
    Anyway, I spent a while leveling up before fighting Roark. Avery evolved into a Staravia, Lex evolved into Luxio, and Goku evolved into Monferno. When I thought everyone was decently leveled, I took on Roark.
    His entire team fell easily to Christophe's Mega Drain and Goku's Mach Punch.
    With my first badge in hand, I headed back to Jubilife City.

    Beat the 3rd Sinnoh Gym. Caught a Chansey (I know! how rare!), realised what a freakin chore it is to raise!!! Thankfully solaceon daycare was just up the road. Caught another gastly, an unown, a scyther and a ponyta (who soon met its end at the hands of a Buizel with aqua jet!) and just arrived in Veilstone.

    Haven't done a whole lot.

    With Surf in my hands, I went to catch something in Cherrygrove (a Tentacool (Morgan, boxed) with a bad nature) and decided to surf in the Ruins of Alph instead of trying for a Natu. I caught a Wooper (Serenity, party for Amy) who shall become my physical water type. Quagsire is one of my favorite pokémon, after all.
    Continuing my surfing, I went to the Lake of Rage and got some items before AgentSmith took out the stupid Red Gyrados that could have KO'd him had it not started with Leer. Chatted with Lance and was going to head into the Rocket Hideout before realizing that training Serenity beforehand would be a good idea. I went to Olivine and, after surfing some more, I found that Tentacools are an amazing way to train a Water Absorb wooper/quagsire. And that is what I am currently doing. I still have to deal with the Rockets, lighthouse and lower levels of Union Cave before heading to Cianwood.
    EDIT Commence!
    So I finished that and quickly went into the rocket base and my team wiped the floor with EVERYTHING! I didn't even need Lance for the double battle, sadly enough, considering my level 27 Jenna (Crobat) was faster than his level 40 Dragonite and Silver took out Ariana's Arbok in one (critical) hit.
    And I caught the first Electrode, since it counts as wild. I named him 1337 and he is in the box in case I lose another electric type.
    Now to Union Cave (with Amy and Gideon)!

    I made it to Floaroma Town and immediately headed east to take care of the Team Galactic problem at the Valley Windworks. After the Grunt locked himself inside, I obtained the Works Key from the two in Floaroma, and charged through the place. I was up against Commander Mars, but it was easy with a Spark from Lex on Zubat, and a few Mach Punches from Goku to take care of Purugly. Once I ran TG out, I hunted in the tall grass on Route 205 and found Zoey, the Shellos. I happily added her to my team and proceeded to train her up to be on par with the others.
    Then realizing it was Friday, I headed back to the Windworks and got myself a Drifloon (Floona). As it's my favorite Pokemon in the universe, I added her to my team as well (now let's hope she doesn't die or I will be sooo upset).
    I still want to level up Zoey a bit more before finishing up Route 205 and taking on Eterna Forest.

    Back again. Another smallish update.

    I blazed through the lower levels of Union Cave with my team and then headed to the lighthouse and blazed through there as well. I was sad that Gideon didn't even level up once, so I trained him via my standard "Flying Type Training," meaning I took him into the bug catching contest with no intention of catching a bug.
    I then set sail for Cianwood. Serenity, Timas and AgentSmith mauled the trainers on routes 40 and 41. AgentSmith evolved and I got a usable Tentacool (Susan, boxed) before getting to Cianwood. I fought Eusine and beat each of his pokémon in two hits. I then went and got my Shuckle (Shuckie, boxed) from the guy who was apparently harassed by my rival. I then found another Shuckle (Desdemona, boxed) while Rock Smashing for items. I may actually use one on an Elite Four team. It'd be fun to wall Lance to hell...
    I saved before taking to the gym to destroy all trainers.

    Current Team:
    Bella - Lvl 21
    Amy - Lvl 27
    Nick - Lvl 28
    Silver - Lvl 28

    Serenity - Lvl 30
    AgentSmith - Lvl 30

    Dead:
    Victor - Lvl 16 - 20
    Cecelia - Lvl 3 - 24


    Question: is it considered cheating if I take my Magneton to Pearl to make it a Magnezone?
    Just wondering. I was planning on allowing trading with myself for trade evolutions, so I was just wondering. If it is not, I'll probably also attach a Dawn Stone to it when trading it back to make Silver a Togekiss. Or not. Haven't decided that one yet.

    Feeling ready to take on Eterna Forest, I finished up with the trainers on Route 205 and headed on. I met up with Cheryl and took heavy advantage of her healing gift, training up my team quite vigorously (by my standards, lol). I didn't catch anything while there (a Wurmple and Silcoon on first encounter; not worth it imo). I made sure everyone was on level 25 before departing with Cheryl and leaving the forest. (Everyone except Avery, who I'm hesitating about training further now that I have Floona...) It was on the other half of Route 205 that tragedy struck. I was training Christophe, who didn't get much experience in Eterna Forest, and everything seemed fine. I came across a Pachirisu and was using Mega Drain to slowly sap its health.. I was a bit distracted (the X-Files was on). The next thing I knew, Christophe had fainted, fallen in a manner I don't exactly know... ): I was hoping he would be some sort of fancy gentleman Roserade one day. He helped me greatly, especially against Roark, and he will be missed.
    Disheartened, I made it to Eterna City, received Cut from Cynthia, BS'd around in the Underground, and grinded a bit more in Route 211/Mt. Coronet. I KO'd the Ponyta I found on Route 211, but caught the Chingling (Rin) I found in Mt. Coronet. Finally, I decided it was high time to fight Gardenia. Quickly disposing of the four gym trainers, I was face to face with the Grass-type fanatic. Her team was easily squashed with Floona's Gust and Goku's Flame Wheel. I received the Forest Badge and am now getting ready to explore the Old Chateau and rescue the bike-shop owner.

    Tragedy struck in Chuck's gym.
    And I say tragedy since I was willing to lose Victor and, in all honesty, I hate the Geodude family so Cecelia wasn't that much of a loss.
    Anyway, I was going through the trainers with Jenna (Crobat) and Gideon (Pidgeotto). I was about to fight a guy who had Hitmonchan. I figured that even an elemental punch wouldn't 1HKO Gideon and it was bound to have lower Sp. Def that Def., so in Gideon went. Hitmonchan Fire Punched him, twice, burning him the second time. The burn damage killed him...which is truly sad because, had it not, a quick attack would have finished Hitmonchan. RIP Gideon, Lvl 2 - 29.
    I wanted to get unique revenge on Chuck's gym. So, after training everyone (but Amy (Poliwhirl), since she wasn't going to be in the party) to 30, I went back.
    Nick (Tauros) took out his Primeape with two Zen Headbutts while it attempted to Double Team/Focus Punch me. I then switched in AgentSmith (Magneton) for Poliwrath. A paralyzing Thundershock and a Charge Beam later, I had beaten Chuck with two pokémon weak against fighting. And revenge was sweet.
    I then collected the potion that I had neglected and flew back to save Amphy. Baoba called me about the Safari Zone, so I headed there, training Amy on the way. I knocked out the Golbat that I found in the Cliff Edge Cave, but I did catch two others. While I still can't seem to get a Herracross to save my life (next attempt is route 44!) and instead got a Ledyba (Joseph, Boxed), I was very pleased with the female Vulpix (Beans, boxed for now) I found on route 48. I shall explore the Safari Zone next before I train Amy and Beans to beat Jasmine. And Serenity (Quagsire), but she could probably already solo the gym with some luck.

    Progress: 5 badges.

    I have two questions now...
    Question: is it considered cheating if I take my Magneton to Pearl to make it a Magnezone?
    Just wondering. I was planning on allowing trading with myself for trade evolutions, so I was just wondering. If it is not, I'll probably also attach a Dawn Stone to it when trading it back to make Silver a Togekiss. Or not. Haven't decided that one yet.
    Question: what is the consensus on the Safari Zone? Is it one entity or multiple places?
    I have seen both, but I want to know if one use is more widespread and whatnot. Then again, I am pretty happy with my current team thanks to my newest addition, so I may not even train anything I might find, but I was wondering nonetheless.

    After I received Fly and the Secret Potion, I headed back to Olivine City, where I began to climb the Lighthouse. At the top, Jasmine gave Ampy the medicine and left after he was completely healed. Instead of going directly to the gym, I decided to fly to Cherrygrove City.

    There, I utilized Surf to obtain all the items that was not accessible to me earlier in my journey. I traveled through several towns, and blazed through the trainers in the lower depths of Union Cave. I even went to Route 35 to battle the three trainers there. I ended my exploring on Route 47, where I plan to train a little and then proceed to the Safari Zone.

    Well I've done a lot of little things since I last posted, so I'll just bullet them instead of typing out some tl;dr paragraphs.

    -Visited the Old Chateau, got some items, KO'd a Gastly (too attached to Floona right now, but I'll probably come to regret it)
    -Ran Team Galactic out of Eterna City by beating Jupiter (her Skuntank was annoying, as always)
    -Rescued the bike-shop owner and received a bike
    -Zipped through Route 206/Cycling Road (to return to Wayward Cave later)
    -Caught a Ponyta (Firefly)
    -Revived my Skull Fossil in Oreburgh to be gifted with Roland, the Cranidos. Started to train him, but changed my mind
    -Met Cyrus in Mt. Coronet, and caught a Meditite (Shiva) on ROute 208 (also started to train, but changed my mind)
    -Did some junk in Hearthome City and beat my rival
    -Box'd the Happiny egg
    -Returned to Wayward Cave, where I obtained Doutaku, the Bronzor
    -Escorted Mira out of Wayward Cave, while training Doutaku and the others
    -Zoey evolved into Gastrodon
    -Headed back to Hearthome and Route 209 where I caught a Mime Jr. (Mimey)
    -At the Lost Tower, I took a moment to mourn for Christophe, my lost Budew
    -Evolved Lex into Luxray and obtained the HM Strength
    -Left Doutaku at the Solaceon Daycare while I explored the Solaceon RUins
    -Headed north to Route 210, where I caught a Kricketune (Nando)
    -Evolved Floona in Drifblim once she learned Omnious Wind
    -Picked up Doutaku and went east to Veilstone
    -Decided I wasn't ready for Maylene and began grinding on Route 214
    -Caught a Hippopotas (Hepa) in the Ruin Maniac Tunnel (with only a 5% encounter rate, wow!), but KO'd the Stunky on Route 214
    -Caught a Girafarig (Rodette) at the Valor Lakefront and hatched my Happiny egg (Eggette) (lol originality)
    -Reached Pastoria City

    My Pokemon are decently leveled enough to take on both Maylene and Crasher Wake, but I want to train more (I'm mostly worried about Fantina right now, actually). So I plan on battling my way through Route 212, and then I'll fight 'em all (or whenever Doutaku learns Gyro Ball and I let it evolve).

    I recently started a Nuzlocke Run of Platinum, something I've tried before but never finished, so I'm looking to keep going.

    In addition to the traditional rules, I added that if I encounter a shiny (possible but improbable), I may capture it, but may not use it unless it is the first encounter (extremely improbable)

    TD;LR: I'm currently preparing to depart for Eterna City. Have obtained the Coal Badge and beaten Mars.

        Spoiler:- Box:


        Spoiler:- Deaths:


    So, the Question is, which box member should I add to my team? I'd like to use Kazza, but he isn't obeying me, so if I do use him (which I probably will) I must wait 'till I get the next Gym Badge.

    Personally, I thing that NewZeland sounds like the best choice, especially since it can learn pursuit and crunch, which would be helpful for the third gym in Platinum. But that is just me.

    Good luck!

    Since completing my LG Nuzlocke at the end of last week, I've started a HG run. I started with Cole the Cyndaquil, but it lost to Falkner's Pidgeotto in pretty much the same way I lost Fry the Charmeleon in my LG run; tackle misses, the foe about to faint gets a crit (in this case, gust). Pidgeotto then died to an earlier burn.

    I've had a fair bit of luck Pokemon wise, mainly with Herali. I also have a Stantler in my box (actually caught before the 3rd gym, which is pretty rare). Hovver was caught using Rock Smash and repelling the wild pokemon just in the cave, so that wasn't really luck, but just strategy so that I wouldn't end up with another run infested by Geodude and Zubat.

    Overall, I've had three deaths so far. Cole, then Wampi the Wooper against Bugsy's Scyther, and later, Chomp the Rattata, who fell to a critical confusion from a trainer's Kadabra. This is about the same death count I'd experienced at this point in LG. Mainly due to stupid decisions and the 'no grinding' rule I'm using. Wampi was only Level 11, so it was silly of me to think it could survive Scyther's U-turn, even at full health and under normal conditions.

    I've just beaten Whitney to earn my third badge. Oddly, she was by far the easiest gym leader I've faced so far, but I suppose that was because I actually had a team able to face her. Hovver took down Clefairy with mutliple Rock Smashes (the 100% defense drop given by Serene Grace works wonders), and of course, Herali's Brick Break tore Miltank to pieces.

    I have more Pokemon in boxes, but none of them really fit the team, so I'm leaving a spot open for now. Once the main adventure is complete, I'm (crazily), attempting a Battle Frontier Nuzlocke using all survivors of this Nuzlocke and my LG adventure. It's going to mean training a lot of the pokemon who weren't used during the main adventures.

    TRO's Gym Leader Saga (Because I obtained badges 3-6 in quick succession):

    When I felt trained enough (everyone at level 35), I took on Crasher Wake (before Maylene because it was just the direction I happened to be traveling). I took down his Floatzel and Gyarados with Lex's Spark and his Quagsire with Floona (just to avoid Ground type attacks). After winning, I realized the TG event isn't triggered until you help Lucas/Dawn in Veilstone (and here I thought I was saving time) so I traveled back to Veilstone. Maylene was incredibly easy as well. With Doutaku the Bronzong and Floona the Drifblim on my side, she fell easily.

    I helped Lucas get his PokeDex back, obtained Fly, went back to Pastoria, fought my rival and won with no issues, and scared off that one TG member outside Lake Valor. Cynthia appeared and gave me the Secret Potion and from then on made me her *****.
    I fought through the fog and made it to Celestic Town, where I ran off Team Galactic once again. Cynthia's grandmother gave me Surf and to use it, I needed Fantina's badge.

    So I flew to Hearthome City, took care of all the gym trainers, before facing Fantina. She didn't give me too much trouble, except Drifblim with its high HP. I had Lex's Crunch and Doutaku's Extrasensory (for Gengar) on my side. I beat her and obtained the Relic Badge. With the ability to Surf, I took some time to travel around Sinnoh, accessing new places due to Surf and getting helpful items here and there. After the detour, I Surfed my way to Canalave City.

    Once again I encounted my rival, but he was no match for my decently leveled Pokemon. They weren't leveled enough for my taste (I'm trying to increase them 5 levels between gym battles so they end up at 55 after Volkner) so I traveled to Iron Island. I spent a while there grinding as Riley helpfully healed my Pokemon. We got rid of the Galactic Grunts and Riley gave me a (unfortunately unusable) Riolu egg.

    I then went back to Canalave to fight Byron. All of his Pokemon were OHKO'd by either Goku or Zoey, and with that I got my 6th badge. I was called to the Canalave Library to meet with Rowan, Lucas, and Barry when there was a tremor felt all the way across Sinnoh.
    I immediately headed to Lake Valor where I saw TG was the cause of a massive explosion. In the cave, I fought Saturn. He was no match for me, and hinted that Lake Verity was the next place of action. There, I found Lucas being harassed by Mars, and I took it upon myself to take her down. Again, no issues there. Lake Acuity is my next destination, where both Barry and Jupiter await.

    Well, I lost.

    After going through Eterna Forest, I suffered the loss of Nicaragua the Monferno, my beloved starter. Upon arriving at the city, I attempted to train first NewZealand the Buizel and later India the Meditite, but both were killed.

    After defeating Gardenia, I added Kazza the Kadabra, as my next badge would keep it in check. I continued on (I accidently killed the Gastly in the Chateau (stupid Curse)) down Cycling Road.

    I eventually made it to Hearthome, where I obtained Italy the Eevee. I trained all my Pokčmon to 28. I thought I could handle her...

    Fantina's Duskull went easily, but her Mismagius swept me. I have no will or ability to train my underleveled remaining boxed 'Mons, so I'm giving up the challenge.

    I am, however, going to attempt a run of SoulSilver, as it is supposed to be easier. Wish me luck!
