In the deepest reaches of my mind
I've been lurking in this thread for awhile now, so I might as well start my own first ever Nuzlocke. I'll be doing a LeafGreen Nuzlocke.
1) All fainted Pokemon are to be released
2) Only one chance to catch first Pokemon in a route/area (Duplicates included)
3) MUST NICKNAME ALL POKEMON
4) Items are only used outside of battle
5) Must defeat legendaries!
6) Set mode (No switching when foe's Pokemon is KO'ed)
7) Can't be too high a level against foe's Pokemon (Max: 5)
8) Can use gift Pokemon
9) Unlimited heals
10) All shinies WILL be caught. (But not used.)
I plan to make it a Nuzlocke "Fanfiction" as well, so the chapters might be a little long...
Birth of a new hero...
Opening my eyes, I knew today would be special. As I peered around my familiar room, I noticed a blinking message light on my PC. Trudging towards it, I saw someone left me a message. Hmm...seems like Prof. Oak wants to see me. He attached a potion to it. But why? Shrugging, I withdrew the potion and headed downstairs. Mom said Prof. Oak was looking for me. I wonder what it could be? Heading out I told her, I opened the door where the sunlight greeted my eyes.
I decided to head to Gary's house, seeing if he knew where Prof. Oak was, since he IS his grandson. Daisy, Gary's sister, greeted me, and informed me that Gary was at Prof. Oak's lab. That must mean Prof. Oak was there as well, right? Nope. As Gary rudely told me that "Gramps" wasn't there, I disregarded him and instead stared at the Poke balls on the table. Telling me those were for him, I stared in annoyance at the smirking Gary and headed off.
Letting out a sigh, I took a walk around Pallet, hoping I would spot Prof. Oak somewhere. Oh, how I hate that arrogant Gary...I wish I had a Pokemon, I've always wanted one, and now at the age of 14, I was starting to think I'll never get one.
Oh well...walking back to my house, I heard a rustle in the grass. Prof. Oak? I drew closer and before setting a foot in the tall grass, I was twirled around and there I made eye contact with the Pokemon Professor.
"It's unsafe out there! Wild Pokemon live in the tall grass!" He nodded sternly. "Come with me." And with that, he led me back to his lab. "You need a Pokemon for your own protection." he stated.
Eyes widened, I realized what was to come. FINALLY. I hope this is what I think it is. I'll finally be able to traverse across Kanto with......CRASH!
"Hey Gramps! Why'd you call me here?!" Looking down at me, Gary laughed in contempt. "Watch where you're going next time, Furais."
Giving a scowl to Gary, I stood up, and awaited Prof. Oak's decision. "Ah Gary, hmm...That's right, I told you to come here. Let me think..." Looking into the distance,he spoke in a tone of longing and... remorse? "I used to be a Pokemon trainer once, but now at my age, I've kept these three with me. I would like you both to have one."
"Hmph", Gary smirked. "I don't need to be greedy like you. I'm mature! Go ahead and choose first, Furais!" Ignoring Gary's remark, I proceeded on with my decision and approached the first Pokemon.
A green-ish creature with a massive bulb on its back stared at me with gentle eyes. "Ah, that's Bulbasaur, a Grass-type Pokemon. He's very easy to raise." Giving me a smile, he looked at me with calm eyes. Returning the smile, I took him into consideration, and headed to the next one. Gary, tapping his foot impatiently, told me to hurry up. I stuck my tongue out at him.
A blue turtle-like creature with a brown shell jumped up happily at the sight of me. "Oh, Squirtle, a Water-type Pokemon. He's one worth raising." He looked at me with twinkling eyes. We made eye contact and I patted him. Definitely going to be my starter.
Moving on to the last one, I was unaware of what was in store for me. A fiery lizard stood before me, its tail set ablaze and the flame burning a warm intensity. "That's Charmander. A Fire-type. I wouldn't recommend him to beginners, he's difficult to raise. You should raise him patiently." He stared at me defiantly, and I looked at him with disdain. Out of my choices. So it was either Bulbasaur or Squirtle. As I approached Bulbasaur, I reached my hand out to take him when...
"Oops. Sorry, I forgot to mention. I can't let you take Bulbasaur, he's my first caught Pokemon, you see." uttered Prof. Oak.
Nodding in apology, I turned to Squirtle. I guess he's my starter then. Maybe Gary will pick Charmander. Reaching out a hand again, I was knocked over, and when I looked up, I saw Gary with Squirtle in his arms. Way to be mature, Gary... which leaves me with only one option left. Charmander.
Approaching Charmander again, he looked at me with caution. "I don't like you either, you know." And as I reached out to grab him, he scratched me. Covering my face, I looked at him hatefully.
Prof. Oak sighed, "I'm sorry, he does that to everyone. You can see why he's hard to raise?" I nodded in agreement. "But he's the only one left so..." Eyeing Gary, I saw him sticking his tongue out at me with Squirtle in his hands.
Gary... how I hate you. Looking at Charmander again, I took in a deep breath and held him up away from me. Struggling, he tried to escape, but to no avail. Groaning, I realized. My starter was Charmander. Quite an energetic Pokemon he was, I decided to call him Caim. A careful one, he is, for obvious reasons...
Gary approached me, "My Pokemon looks WAY tougher than yours. How about we have a battle to find out?" Eager to participate in my first battle, I accepted. Except I forgot. Caim hates me. Not obeying me at all, he totally ignored Squirtle. That is, until Squirtle tackled him. Letting out a growl, Caim listened to me, finally. After scratching Squirtle, Squirtle whipped his tail back and forth, lowering Caim's guard. From then on, it was scratch then tackle between the two, until Caim claimed victory.
"What? Unbelievable! I PICKED THE WRONG POKEMON!" cried Gary in rage. Recollecting himself, Gary smirked. "Whatever, I'll train to get him stronger. Furais! Gramps! Smell ya later." and off he went.
Prof. Oak shook his head. "That Gary, so reckless...I was going to ask him a favor but he left so soon... Do you mind going to the next town for me, Furais? I have a package that was delivered to me and I need you to go fetch it." Nodding my head, I took the first step into what was to come.
Strolling through Route 1 merrily with Caim (Who still dislikes me, but we put up a business-like relationship, mainly he leaves me alone and vice versa.) I happened to encounter my first wild Pokemon. It was a tiny rustle in the grass, but before I knew it, a Rattata jumped viciously at me! Surprised, I flinched, but was even more surprised when I saw Caim shoot embers at it! Not only did Caim learn ember, but we had food! (Uhh…I wonder if it’s legal to eat fried Rattata?) Well, anyways, Caim and I definitely developed a better relationship after that.
So, as we continued on, I met a Pokemart employee. Like all the other advertisements I usually see on TV he was offering me a free sample of a potion followed by persuasive words to visit his shop. Nodding and smiling, I took the potion and left.
Arriving in Viridian city soon enough, I made a quick stop by the Pokemon center and decided to traverse the city first. Uhh…First thing I see is an old man lying on the road.
Shouting in a lunatic’s voice, he cried, “This is private property, I forbid you to go through here!”
A woman who appeared to be the old man’s granddaughter approached me, “Sorry, he hasn’t had his coffee yet…”
“And that is causing him to lie down in the middle of the road?” I inquired. Creasing my brow, I sighed. Whatever. Off to get Prof. Oak’s package it is. Entering the Pokemart was a sight to see. All sorts of goodies lined the shelves, including Pokeballs, potions, and a variety of battling items.
A distant voice called me. “Hey! You from Pallet town?” I nodded. “Well here, take this package to the professor there.”
Accepting the package, I headed back to Pallet. I guess my quest is done. Well my dream was short lived...but maybe not!
"Ah, Furais! Back with my package? Well, give it here. Thank you for the help." Opening the package, he revealed a custom Pokeball. "Ah, yes, this is it." Tucking away the Pokeball, he looked at me strangely. "Why, Furais, you seem different already. And your Pokemon!"
I looked at myself and Caim. Strange, there's no difference.
"You and Caim have grown quite close together, haven't you?"
I looked at Caim, and he snarled at me. "Err...I guess so?"
Right then, guess who'd drop by?
"Gramps! I almost forgot! What'd you call me here for?" Gary's voice rang out loud and clear. Not even looking, I could tell he was right beside me.
"Oh, right! Here, I have a task for you two." Walking over to his research table, he beckoned us. "Come, come! Look here." Approaching his table, I saw two high-tech encyclopedias? "This is my latest invention, the Pokedex! It records data on Pokemon you see or catch. Furais and Gary, each of you take one. I'd like you both to fill this Pokedex with information on each Pokemon. See who can fill it up first?" Prof. Oak chuckled.
Gary and I looked at each other. Challenge accepted.
"Here are some tools to start your journey." He handed us each 5 Pokeballs. "And while you're at it, you might like to participate in the gyms they have in each city? Try to become the best at Pokemon training?" He chuckled again.
Challenge accepted. Again.
Prof. Oak sighed. "You know, to get information on all the Pokemon in the world...that was my dream. But as you can see, I'm too old to get the job done...So I want you two to do it for me! Get moving, both of you." And with that note, he left an encouraging smile.
"Alright, Gramps! Leave it me! Furais, I HATE to say this, I really do, but you should really give up. I'll borrow a map from my sis and I'll tell her NOT to give you one. HA!" And with that, he left.
Stopping by Gary's house anyways, Daisy gave me a town map anyways. Hmph...take that, Gary.
And now, my journey truly begins. I'm off to fulfill dreams!
