    Yep! I'd heard about Nuzlocke before the Joey Challenge, but without the name. It was just described to me as "hardcore Pokemon." I really started learning about the challenges after I started this one, but the Joey Challenge has a certain appeal to me. lol

    Great progress so far, good luck in Victory Road!
    Yeah, he really was a pain. The first time I realized I might have trouble is when I went against ??? (my rival) and I had to have a struggle-battle with his Gastly. Neither side could hit the other. XD (In the end, his Croconaw got a critical, so I had to restart from my last save...lol)

    Thanks!

    After doing some exploring through Whirl Islands (found nothing--I guess Lugia shows up later?), I made my way through Victory Road and ended up at the Pokemon League! Will wasn't too bad. Neither was Koga.

    Bruno, on the other hand...We'll work on it.

    I like it how you can make Nuzlockes even more difficult by giving yourself additional rules like only using potions that you found on the ground etc. Plus you can do as many Nuzlockes as you want and each time it'll be different -like the team you use. But I think I'd get bored with the Joey Challenge if I tried it more than once, truth be told.

    Yeah, I can agree with that. The only variation I can really imagine is on which game you try the Joey Challenge, but yeah, even then you get the same Pokemon with probably the same moveset. For a first time, though, it's fun.

    After this, I think I want to try a Nuzlocke or such challenge. Yea or nay?

    If you think you can release any fainted pokemon, I'd say go for it.

    I'd follow you for a Nuzlocke. And I don't think you need to release your Pokemon when they faint, just perma-box them.

    Best of luck finishing the League!

    Heh, and I tend to grow attachments to my party Pokemon...It'd certainly make things interesting. Make me play a lot more carefully.

    So it took a fair number of tries to defeat Bruno (I think four...). Rattata had to grow five levels since I started fighting the Elite Four before he could withstand a Cross Chop. That meant a lot of white-outs and a lot of lost cash.

    But, Bruno was defeated, and with that I am most of the way through the Elite Four!

    Challenge accepted!! lol no but seriously I think I MAY have heard of this a while back not too sure...

    question, aside from only have the rattata, is their a limit on how many times you die/faint with it, or is it just complete the game with the rattata limit??

    Where I found the rules, it didn't say anything about fainting. But this is what I gather:

    The rules say that while fighting the Elite Four, you can only have Rattata in your party. I take that to mean that you can't use Revives, and if they have to specify that, then I don't think there's a limit on fainting.

    My Rattata has fainted a fair number of times lol I soft-reset when he did (until I reached the Elite Four, then I whited out and paid up).

    As it turns out, Karen is the Dark-type leader, not Ghost-type. That was good. But Karen did prove difficult for one battle: Her Gengar used Destiny Bond, so as soon as I knocked him out, Rattata fainted, too. But my next try through the Elite Four, I made it to Lance without any major difficulty.

        Spoiler:- Elite Four leader Karen was defeated!:


    After Karen, of course, came Lance.

    I had to heal a lot, but I defeated him the first time!

        Spoiler:- Elite Four leader Lance was defeated!:


    So you know what that means...!

        Spoiler:- Rattata, Hall of Famer!:


    Though Rattata's already in the top percentage ('cause he's awesome :P), I've learned that I can also go through the Kanto gyms. What do you guys think? Yea or nay?

    I'd be interested to see you run the Kanto Gym Leaders, but let's be fair here. You beat Lance, you'll destroy them. I say start a Nuzlocke!

    Ooh, yeah. I would say that Dig should work fine, but they have Levitate by LeafGreen, don't they? lol Tell me how you work that out!

    Anyway, sorry for the wait, guys! Over Easter weekend I was with my dad, so I couldn't upload anything. But now that I'm back at home...

    After riding the S.S. Aqua to Vermilion City, I challenged Lt. Surge, the Lightning American! As it turns out, the trash-can traps are the hardest part of the gym, and those were disabled this time around. So, now I have the Thunderbadge!

        Spoiler:- Leader Lt. Surge was defeated!:


    Also, I plan on finding the Return TM and teaching it to Rattata. Not too important right now, but just for your information.

    (And does anyone know how to post actual images instead of just the links? That'd be cool lol)

    After defeating Lt. Surge in Vermilion City, I headed up into Saffron City. I took a little time to explore the city and chat with its inhabitants before taking on the gym. The teleporting pads were a pain (especially when finding my way out of the gym...), but I eventually made my way to Sabrina and defeated her. The Marshbadge is mine!

    It took a while longer to find the next gym (and I was held up by a convention I attended), but I finally reached Fuchsia City and challenged the gym leader. Janine, while maybe not easy to find, per se, was easy to defeat. And with that, I add another badge to my collection: the Soulbadge!

    Compared to finding the last gym, this one wasn't so bad. Up to this point, still no luck with the Power Plant issue, but the battles are never hard. So with this, the Rainbowbadge is mine!

    I will have to use the website playr.org to do it. I would never restart any of my games.

    First, I just wanna say that at the time of the last leader I fought, Rattata was level 86. You can see his level at the time of each individual leader by looking at the pictures. :P

    So the main issue was just finding or reaching all of the leaders! Blue, so far, had the strongest Pokemon (to my recollection), which makes sense to me. The way I see it, there's just one thing left to do: Take on Red!

    Hmm. I started my first nuzloche a few months ago and kinda lost interest around my 4th badge.
    This seems like something I could get into.

    That's right, guys: I challenged Red at Mt. Silver. I can't say that I defeated him on my first try, but the second time around, once I had established a strategy, I claimed my victory! Pokemon Trainer Red was defeated!

    If you wanna see the actual video if the battle, you can find it here: http://youtu.be/fVCRfntgDF8

    It actually ended up being the 100th video in my Youngster Joey Challenge playlist, so I thought that was pretty awesome. :P

    Nice man, I'm doing my own now. Didn't restart just found a dead game and replaced the battery. So I am working on the first gym leader.
