The Graveyard for my recent Emerald run.
He only lasted one battle for the team,but his heroic sacrifice was able to save Dan,Carl and Sarah.
During a battle against a trainer`s Seedot,i used Ember while he used Bide. ``Whatever``,i thought,``The next attack will finish this``.
But it did not,instead,Seedot hang in there with 2 HP left,much to my horror.
I stared at my starter with sad eyes and he stared back,we knew it was the end,but then,Harold jumped on the way of the attack. He knew that he was the least important member of the team and gave his own life to save Carl.
Thank you for your sacrifice,Harold,you saved a life that day and i am greatly sorry that it took yours to do so.
He was the first pokemon i caught,and he was awesome. He wasnt the strongest or the fastest member of the team,but he was still a valuable companion regardless of that. We fought Watttson and after gaining the upper-hand (and losing Amy,the Loudred to a self-destruction),he used Manetric. Dan fought bravely and managed to get a few good hits,but soon,the power of Manetric was clear and a Shock-Wave took his life.
Carl (Combusken) was able to over-power it after a close battle,but we had already lost 2 of our friends.
Despite being of the same species and remembering me of Dan,i knew Kevin had nothing to do with his death and thus,we moved on.
This was a wise choice,as this is the pokemon that saved the team.
On the way to Norman,we fought a trainer inside the gym that owned a Zangoose,i sent out Trapinch first and he uses Swords-Dance as i use Dig.....in an incredible moment of smartness,the CPU actualy used Swords-Dance AGAIN! Trapinch stroke him with Dig and did some good damage,but not enough for a KO. Everyone else on the team was at the same level as the Zangoose,weakned and too slow to out-speed him. The Zangoose procedes to tear my poor Trapinch apart (RIP Knives) and i thought it was the end.
I looked at Kevin and knew what had to be done.....i knew that there was only one way to stop Zangoose and thus,Kevin managed to out-speed him (!) and Thunder-Waved,Zangoose couldnt attack next turn and thus,Kevin used Spark wich removed a good amount of health,but fell to his Slash.
Due to his sacrifice,Carl was able to out-speed and strike him down with a Double Kick. He died as a hero and shall be remembered like it.
My second oldest (alive) pokemon,Sarah was amazingly useful,essentialy soloing Roxxane and Brawly with Absorb and Gust respectively. After Kevin`s death,we got a stroke of good luck.....the whole team was level 37,everyone was fully evolved (except Lileep) and it felt like nothing could stop us.
This cockness,alongside a real life distraction spelt doom for Sarah,as a Manetric (!!) stroke her down with a Thunder. While Carl (he was the team`s avenger :P) was able to avenge her death,the damage was already done. I still feel bad for losing her like this,when it could have been easily prevented.
I shall post the memorial for those who fell against the Elite Four later.

Caught at Route 6 at Level 5, died in Champion Gary's room at Level 60.
Sven was caught as a lowly Magikarp who loved to sing. After while in the daycare (I didn't want ANY mistakes training him), he was reading to evolve into a big ol' accordion-playing Gyarados. He was on and off the team repeatedly, to keep him safe from Lt. Surge, and other reasons. After Silph Co., He had proven to be a fearsome friend, and earned a permanent spot on the team. He played many roles. He was an awesome battler, best friend of Wendy the Hypno, and, most significantly, my counter to Gary's team. However, it all went wrong due to the attack you'd never expect. Hyper Beam? No. Psychic? No. Take Down, Sleep Powder, Thrash? No.
Sand attack. Yes, you read that correctly, I lost my gigantic monster dragon to Sand Attack.
To be continued...

Elite 4 Maverick
My battle with Ghetsis in Black is by far my favourite battle I've ever had, and my only Nuzlocke so far as well. Here's a quick recap, and tribute to all who died in the match.
It was five-on-six, because N killed Irah the Darmanitan. I really felt the loss of my fire type with hammer arm that match against Bisharp and Bouffalant. Rhaegar the Haxorus was a beast that match. First it eliminated Confagrigus, after it toxiced Torrent, my Samurott.
Hydreigon came out to fight it next. Dragon pulse took Rhaegar down to red HP, but Rhaegar's dragon claw (a crit, but I don't think it mattered) destroyed the evil enemy dragon. I think his Bisharp came out next, and I think I took it down with Torrent, but I'm not certain.
After that, it gets kind of fuzzy. Petra the Boldore took Bouffalant down, I think, but soon, I had lost Pipsqueak and Petra, as well as Chris the Cryogonal. It was down to Rhaegar and Torrent, and he had his Eelektross and (I didn't know what the last one was, mind) Seismitoad. Eelektross was low-ish on health. Rhaegar made short work of it, and then it was two-on-two, but Torrent was badly poisoned, and had only 12 hp left. I was hoping I could finish the match with Rhaegar (I don't use items in battle).
Rhaegar took a huge chunk of health out of the Seismitoad, but was then attacked, and it joined the others.
Now it was one-on-one. Torrent was badly poisoned and had only 12 hp left. One turn and he would go down, whether he was attacked or not. And he surfed...
And the Seismitoad went down. Thanks Arceus for poison not taking effect at the end of the match.

the fallen ones from my finished fire red nuzlocke
kaizer the aerodactyl:
You fought alongside me all the way to the elite 4 to the champion. I'm surpised that you couldn't one shot a charizard but that's okay. You took out a Machamp allowing me to proceed or I might have gotten sweeped. May you be restored someday by a scientist.
Wileplume the Vileplume:
I remember back when I caught you in the patch of grass near the nugget bridge. You were the useless one then. As I trained you, you got stronger and as time went by you got decent moves despite it being limited. Unfortunately, a sacrifice had to be made and you got killed by Machamp after the gut's boost from you had to toxic it. You might be the second weakest one but you're still a valuable part of the time. We will never forget you.

Luckily in my LeafGreen nuzlocke I have suffered few casualties. But they hurt me hard.
ZUZU the female Zubat. Lv. 10-12.
Died to save another.
Zuzu was... interesting. She died to a level 29 (!) Dugtrio in Diglett's cave. I was training my Mankey and had almost beat the Dugtrio at only level 20. Mankey fell into the red, and I didn't want to lose him because of the many rock-types up ahead. I switched in Zuzu, thinking it had 3 ground moves and a status move (growl? idk what I thought). Zuzu came in on a Sand Tomb. As I used a super potion on Mankey, Dugtrio used Fury Swipes. RIP Zuzu. You would have been a strong Crobat for fighting Bruno R2. Many tears were shed on your behalf.
BRUNO the male Primape. Lv. 3-38.
His strength was unmatched.
The aforementioned Mankey that Zuzu had saved. It was unfortunate that he didn't get to see the Pokemon League. He always wanted to go there. Now he will never know what it's like there. His loss now is more devastating than if I had lost him to that Dugtrio, now I have no Magneton check other than Charizard, and she's weak to electric. He had slain many a Magnemite, Geodude, Raticate, and... pretty much anything that's weak to fighting. At least I have Exeggutor for those rock-types Charizard hates so much.
