I started up a Platinum Nuzlocke recently, am currently about to enter Hearthome city.
So I start my game, pick Jinbe the Piplup, capture Robin the Starly and various fodder mons, including Hm slave bidoof. Reach Oreburgh, capture Sanji the Ponyta, decide to train it, beat a bunch of crap, make my way to Floaroma and capture a Shellos.
I grind Jinbe, Robin and Sanji due to my fear of Purugly, in the process of grinding Sanji picks up Flame Wheel and starts hitting like a truck. Mars goes down without much trouble, as does Eterna forest and Gardenia. I go into the Galactic building and take on Saturn. Things progress pretty well ad I realize. Night Slash. Crit rates. Fuck. I'm screwed. I play around for Intimidates as cautiously as i can, trying to find a chance to heal Sanji so it wont die to Aftermath.
Boom. Down goess Jinbe. Boom. Down goes Robin. Boom. Sacrifical heal fodder.
So with my team decimated my Jupiter I soldier on, pulling out Dracule the Zubat for training, as well as Shellos, and then Buneary for HM Slavery. I go to capture a Rotom, Ember brings it to Red. Burned. FML. I go to train and look for mons below Cycling Road and realize I'm horribly screwed against Rock types. i face a Hiker with two Onixes.
Boom. Down goes Shellos. Boom. Down goes Buneary.
Really screwed now I figure out a way to salvage my situation. I trade my level 16 Machop for Kazza the Abra, evolve it (no Confusion ;_;) and teach it Grass Knot. Rock immunization complete. Training continues while saving Mira and Dracule evolves into the less shitty Golbat.
On the other side I run into a Ralts, quite happy to replace Kazza with it. It uses Teleport. FML.
Team is currently sitting at the level 26 boss (Ponyta), the level 23 Golbat and the level 23 mono-attacking Kadabra, before Fantina.
Planning on picking up a Glaceon down the line if I don't get screwed by then. Hoping for some good mons in the next three routes to pick up the slack and the loss of my water types.
