My first Nuzlocke Run
I decided to do my very first ever Nuzlocke Run, and did it with Emerald. I'm regretting doing it at all now.
My first casualty was Shenzi the Hasty Poochyena. We were attempting to defend the Devon Researcher in Petalburg Woods from Team Aqua, but unfortunately, she was brought down by a lucky blow from the opposing Poochyena. Quagmire the Relaxed Mudkip swiftly avenged her.
However...the real nightmare began in the Dewford Gym. I had befriended Sumo the Jolly Makuhita in Granite Cave, and we had trained together in that cave for quite some time before attempting to take on the Gym. However, Sumo fell all the same to Black Belt Takao's Machop, unable to withstand the battery of Karate Chops after his defenses were reduced by Leer.
But the worst of it came from Brawly himself. His Machop showed no mercy, unleashing a barrage of Fighting attacks that my Pokémon simply could not weather. I ordered my Pokémon to bolster their defences and reduce the accuracy of his attacks. I exhausted my supply of healing items. It was all for naught.
One by one I watched my Pokémon fall, until finally, all that remained was Flopsy the Bashful Magikarp. We faced death together, and we faced it with dignity.
Now I'm just sitting in the corner, trying to pretend I wasn't just emotionally traumatized by a video game.
