You have to get good and lost to find places which cannot be found
*Dramatic inspirational music plays* I'm gonna take on Phadunks philosophy. It is time to push through my losses and bring back the Emerald Run. Since I never deleted it I am exactly where I left off *shudders at the motley crew I have*
Since its been so long since I last played I wont give a story update, I'll just give a general overview of what happened (namely important battles, captured pokes, and deaths)
Chapters 11-14: The Lost Files
-Arrived in Slateport with team of Ragnarok, Pinacolada, Tasty, and Lancelot. Whipped Team Aqua's but and proceeded north to Route 110. There I caught Oddish and named it Flora. Flora was immediately boxed (how stupid of me).
-Defeated Rival May with ease, and proceeded through to Mauville.
-Defeated Rival Wally with ease and the Gym Trainers. Began grinding Lancelot, Ragnarok, & Pinacolada. Tasty was boxed.
-Caught Chief the Poocheyena on Route 117, deposited him soon after.
-Finished (so I thought) grinding in all available surrounding routes and went for the gym. Withdrew Tasty at the last second thinking he might prove useful
-Defeated Wattson, but at the cost of Tasty, who I had expected to lose, and Lancelot, a heart breaking loss. I had expected so much out of him, and his career was ended far to early.
-After the pyrrhic victory I withdrew Troll, taught it Rock Smash, and went up to Route 111.
-On Route 112 I caught a Numel and named him Nitro. Caught a Slugma in the Fiery Path and named him Napoleon. Caught a Spinda on Route 113 and named him Pander.
-Lost Pinacolada on Route 113 to Self-Destructs, I cried and lost most of my heart for this challenge.
-Caught a Swablu on Route 114 and named it Nimbus. Gave up on Nuzlocke once I got into meteorite falls.
-Resumed Nuzlocke with a team of Nimbus the Swablu and Ragnarok the Combuske, withdrew Troll the Slakoth and added her to the team in a desperate attempt to create a new powerhouse on the team.
Ragnarok the Combusken (M)
Nature - Lonely
Level - 30
Moves - Double Kick, Peck, Ember, Bulk Up
Ability - Blaze
Opinion: The undisputed king of the team. Ragnarok is the sole survivor of the powerhouse team I had before the indcidents of Route 114. He has survived multiple Self-destructs while watching his good friends fall around him. Now the burden of carrying the team through these dark and uncertain times rests squarely on his shoulders.
Nimbus the Swablu (M)
Nature - Quiet
Level - 20
Moves - Peck, Fury Attack, Astonish, Sing
Ability - Natural Cure
Opinion: Nimbus joined the team in a very dark time. It is long road ahead of us and the weak simply wont make it. Nimbus lacks power and bulk, so only time will tell if he can stand the tests of the Nuzlocke.
Troll the Slakoth (F)
Nature - Serious
Level - 7
Moves - Scratch, Yawn, Cut, Rock Smash
Ability - Traunt
Opinion: While Troll has been on my team many times on my journey, nothing was ever expected of her. So far she has been merely an HM Slave, seeing breif moments of companionship when she was needed and then put back away so that other more powerful members could join. But times have changed, and desperation & necessity breed opportunity. Troll is now a perminant member of the team. And after some grinding is done we will see what she is truly made of.
Inseninja the Nincada (M)
Moves- Sractch, Harden, Leech Life
Ability- Compound Eyes
Opinion: Not much, he was the first Pokemon I saw on the Route, and maybe if I need him I could evolve him into a Ninjask or a Shedinja. And with my current situation I might just do that.
Kerry the Whismer (F)
Moves- Pound, Uproar
Opinion: Kerry may have some potential, as Exploud is a decent Pokemon. With Sly's unfortunate death I thought the odds of her addition to the team would grow. But with the disasters that took so many of my team's lives, I needed someone else, and I looked towards troll to take a spot.
Flora the Oddish (F)
Nature - Mild
Lvl - 13
Moves - Absorb, Sweet Scent
Ability - Chlorophyll
Opinion: Flora may have been useful for facing Wattson, but on the whole training her would have been far too much of a challenge with not much reasonable use in sight. But with recent events that may change for Flora.
Chief the Poocheyena (M)
Nature - Hasty
Level - 13
Moves - Tackle, Howl, Sand Attack, Bite
Ability - Run Away
Opinion: Chief is just one of those Pokemon that just doesnt have any real use. Mightyena isn't that good, and training Poocheyena isn't worth it. Even in light of recent events, I probably wont use him, though the chance is still there.
Nitro the Numel
Nature - Modest
Level - 14
Moves - Growl, Tackle, Ember
Ability - Oblivious
Opinion: Nitro is in a similar boat as Chief. I just didnt see a reason to use him. Ragnarok already surves as an amazing Fire-type, and Numel just didn't have an immeditate use -- or a future use -- to invest in its training. Even now, Numel probably wont be used simply because of Ragnaroks presence. But is something tragic were to happen to Ragnarok, this guy would be first in line as his replacement.
Napoleon the Slugma (M)
Nature - Bold
Level - 15
Moves - Yawn, Smog, Ember, Rock Throw
Ability - Flame Body
Opinion: Basically Napoleon is just another Nitro-- both of whom are inferior to Ragnarok. In fact, this guy is probably behind Nitro in terms of who is more likely to be used.
Pander the Spinda
Nature - Lonely
Level - 14
Moves - Tackle, Uproar, Faint Attack
Ability - Own Tempo
Opinion: Y U NO SKARMORY???? That about sums it up don't cha think? Pander may have a vast movepool, but it is so weak offensively and defensively I wouldnt use it. The only chance it has is if all my other Pokemon were to faint. And even then, I'd use it just to catch another Pokemon. Sorry Pander.
The Memorial to the Dead.
Sly the Zigzagoon (M)
Lvl - 12
Nature - Calm
Moves - Growl, Tackle, Tail Whip, Headbutt
Ability - Pickup
Defeated By: A judgement error while facing May's Torkoal. He stood no chance against Torkoal's Ember.
Memorial Quote: In memory of Sly the Zigzagoon, whose cute antics could bring a smile to even the most caloused of souls. May his spirit live on to bring joy to all who need it.
Final Words: I had truly high hopes for sly. It was my own fault, and we lost a Pokemon with a lot of potentail here. Good bye, Sly.
Tasty the Dustox (M)
Lvl - 18
Nature - Rash
Moves - Tackle, Protect, Poison Sting, Confusion
Ability - Shed Skin
Defeated By: The electrifying power of Wattsons' Voltorb's Shock Wave.
Memorial Quote: In memory of Tasty the Dustox. May he forever fly higher than any bird Pokemon, and may the moon glisten upon him every night.
Final Words: I knew this was coming, but even still, it was painful, as Tasty was my first Pokemon. From the beginning I wanted a Beautifly, but I got a Dustox, and that immediately put a limit on Tasty's usefulness. He demolished Brawly, but after that he petered out, until the point he was no longer needed. In the end he paid the ultimate price trying to weaken Wattsons' team. Thank you Tasty, and Good bye.
Lancelot the Aron (M)
Lvl - 24
Nature - Rash
Moves - Headbutt, Roar, Mud-Slap, Headbutt
Ability - Sturdy
Defeated By: Wattsons' Magneton's Shock Wave
Memorial: In memory of Lancelot the Aron. May his iron will always prevail in the face of adversity.
Final Words: This loss really stung. I had really hoped this guy would become the tank of my team. He would take hits and dish them out even harder. But that dream was never realized. I am sorry Lancelot that you never saw your full potential, Good bye my friend.
Pinacolada the Lotad (F)
Moves- Astonish, Fury Swipes, Absorb, Fake Out
Ability- Rain Dish
Defeated by: The suicidal rage of a Ninja Boy's Koffing's Self-Destruct
Memorial: In the memory of Pinacolada the Lombre. May she laugh, swim, and play all day.
Final Words: This loss stung the most out of any. Pinacolada was at one point the most accomplished member of my team. Her loss came as a shock and it still stings. She was going to become another powerhouse of the team if only the fates had not been so cruel. I am going to miss you Pinacolada, thank you, and Good bye.
Coming soon, the next update: The Reconstruction Era
