    Chapter 1: Smogonite trapped in Johto. (open)
    AHHHHH!!!.........I'm shrinking!

    Elm talks to me. "Hi, what's your name?" I call myself Nuzlock (stupid 7-character limit), since that is what I am here to do. Oh, he has a Pokemon for me? How nice. I guess I'll take Cyndaquil. Oh, a nickname? What about Smogon? Yeah.

    NEW TEAMMATE

    Smogon the lv. 5 Cyndaquil
    Nature: Quiet <----(fail)
    -Tackle
    -Leer

    All right! I have no Pokeballs, so the first Pokemon I see, I will have to come back and catch. I see... a Pidgey. All right! I go to Cherrygrove now. Oh look! The guide gentelman! OOH! Running Shoes!

    I proceed to see which Pokemon I have to catch in Route 30...

    I encounter a level 3 Caterpie.

    *kills it*

    *5 Pidgey and 10 Caterpie later*

    Oh, Mr. Pokemon's house! You want me to take this piece of crap egg back to Elm? Certainly! *cough* derp *cough*

    Oh, a red-haired boy! I will battle him!

    *proceeds to 2HKO his Totodile*

    That was easy.

    *heads back to lab*

    The police guy gives me the opportunity to name that red-haired dude. I think I'll call him DRDEK.

    Lyra teaches my character how to catch Pokemon. Whatever.

    *5 million Sentret later*

    *catches a lv. 2 Pidgey*

    NEW TEAMMATE

    Aeolus the lv. 2 Pidgey
    Bashful Nature
    -Tackle

    On to Route 30!

    *catches a Caterpie*

    NEW TEAMMATE

    Oglemi the lv. 3 Caterpie
    Rash Nature
    -Tackle
    -String Shot

    Let's defeat all the trainers in Routes 30 and 31 with Smogon!

    *does so*

    Holy crap! Oglemi is evolving! Oglemi evolved into Butterfree.

    Now let's see what we get on Route 31, since before I only encountered Pidgeys and Caterpies.

    *10 Caterpie later*

    A wild Bellsprout appeared!

    *catches it*

    NEW TEAMMATE

    Great Sage the lv.3 Bellsprout
    -Vine Whip

    That's great. Maybe it'll be a Cut slave...

    Let's go to Sprout Tower!

    *Wild Rattata appeared!*

    NEW TEAMMATE

    Bloo the lv. 4 Ratatta
    -Tackle
    -Leer
    -Quick Attack

    Another HM slave... Great.

    *Solos tower with Oglemi.*

    Oglemi is evolving again! Oglemi is now a Butterfree!

    I head into the Gym...

    Trainer 1: Easy solo for Smogon
    Trainer 2: Easy solo for Smogon

    Falkner: I lead with Oglemi as he leads with Pidgey. Easy 2HKO as Oglemi takes 3 damdge from Tackle. Then I switch to Smogon for some Ember spamming. Pidgeotto comes in, takes a few Embers, Gusts me a few times, Roosts a few times, and is now on super low HP. That was Falkner's mistake, because he should have Roosted earlier. I Quick Attack for the KO. Then Smogon evolves. :)

    Chapter 3: Whitney the Murderer (open)
    From now on, I will just summarize what happens each chapter since I'm too lazy to write.

    -Exits Azalea Gym.
    -Runs into Rival DRDEK.
    -Oglemi OHKOs Gastly.
    -Oglemi OHKOs Zubat.
    -Oglemi Sleeps Croconaw.
    -Proceed to 8HKO.
    -That was easy.
    -Goes into Ilex Forest.
    -Catches Paras.
    -Annoying Farfetch'd thing...
    -Gets Cut, teaches Cut to Bloo.
    -Gets through Ilex after teaching Smogon Headbutt.
    -Gets TM12 Taunt.
    -Wild Abra appeared the moment I step into the grass on Route 34.
    -Sleeps and catches it.
    -Names it Alaka.
    -Goes into the Daycare.
    -Lyra's Grandma is just perverted...
    -Checks PC.
    -Withdraws Alaka, who is holding a TwistedSpoon (5% chance), is male, and has a Bold nature.
    -GRINDING TIME!!!
    -But first, on to the Goldenrod Game Corner!
    -10 minutes later, I have King S the Dratini.
    -TIME TO GRIND!!!
    -Goes into Gym.
    -Defeats lackeys.
    -Heals.
    -Challenges Whitney.

    The challenger stares down Whitney, and throws his Pokeball. Out comes a Quilava. Whitney sends out her Clefairy. Smogon the Quilava 2HKOs Clefairy with Ember as Clefairy decides to DoubleSlap for 8 Damage. Then the challenger switches to his Butterfree, Oglemi. Whitney sends out her Miltank, which does massive damage with Rollout. Oglemi launches some powder filled with narcotics, but the cow Miltank eats its Lum Berry. Miltank then tries another Rollout, which is aimed at tennisace the Magikarp. It then tries another one, but misses. It then decides to start Stomping. After a while of going back and forth and healing, Challenger Nuzlock decides he can stall no longer, and heals Oglemi. He then switches to his prepared death fodder, Haunter the Unown, for a free switch-in. Haunter is obliterated by a Stomp, and Nuzlock mourns his death. However, it did not die for nothing. Oglemi comes in, tanks a Rollout, and puts Whitney's cow into a drug-induced coma. He then switches to King S the Dratini. King S has a secret ace-Dragon Rage. Dragon Rage 2HKOs Miltank, which fails to wake up, at Whitney's dismay. The second Dragon Rage takes the cow down and out. Whitney cries at her own defeat, but finally she decides to give Nuzlock the Plain Badge, and TM45 Attract, which is useless. Nuzlock buries Haunter in his PC and moves on.

    The challenger Nuzlock stares down Morty, as he sends out Gastly. Philip7086 is sent out, and immediately uses Agility and 3 Swords Dances as Gastly pitifully Licks away. Nuzlock uses a Super Potion, followed by a Paralyz Heal, then Pursuits Gastly to death. Gengar appears. Pursuit OHKOs. Haunter appears. Pursuit OHKOs. Haunter appears. Pursuit OHKOs. Morty appears. Pursuit OHKOs. (loljk) FOG BADGE GET!!!

    -*RESET*
    -Challenges Chuck again.

    The challenger Nuzlock faces down the leader, Chuck. Chuck chucks down his Primape's Pokeball, as Nuzlock sends out Alaka. Alaka lets loose a terrifying Psybeam at Primape, who faints in one hit. Then the challenger switches out to his Scyther, Philip7086. Scyther dances with his Swords once, getting hit by a ridiculously weak Focus Punch from Poliwrath. It then proceeds to 2HKO with Wing Attack. As a last resort, Poliwrath launches a Surf, but it does not KO Scyther, as Wing Attack KOs Poliwrath. STORM BADGE GET!!!

    -Challenges Jasmine.

    The challenger Nuzlock faces down the leader, Jasmine. Jasmine tosses out a Magnemite, which is promptly OHKOed by PK Gaming's Brick Break. The next Magnemite also meets the same fate. Then Steelix comes out as Nuzlock swaps to Smogon, who launches a Fire Blast, which melts the iron snake, reforming it into a more pure form of iron with all the hematite removed. (Technically if you remove the hematite there'd be nothing left, but whatever.) Steelix is OHKOed and forged into a sword, with which Nuzlocke kills Jasmine with (lol jk). MINERAL BADGE GET!!!

    -GRINDING TIME!!!
    -Gets through Gym.

    Before I summarize my challenge of Pryce, I would like you to know that death will happen soon. If you do not wish to see that death, close this hide tag.

    The challenger Nuzlock faces down the leader, Pryce. Nuzlock releases his Scyther, Philip7086. Pryce, having heard of what happened to Morty, sends out Seel and whispers to it. Nuzlock overhears, "...Once you get it up, die." He orders Philip7086 to set up on the helpless Seel, 2 Swords Dances should suffice. Seel then sets up Hail, and Philip7086 Swords Dances. Seel then uses Rest, healing off the 6% it took from Hail damage. (It's only Water-type) Philip7086 proceeds to annihilate both Seel and Dewgong with Wing Attack, but fails to take out Piloswine as it eats a Blizzard.

    Hail is still up.

    Piloswine has Snow Cloak.

    Wing Attack missed...

    And Philip7086 fell to Blizzard.

    PK Gaming came in and revenged his fellow Bug-type.

    If I had grinded a little more, it would have OHKOed that Piloswine...

    Forgive me Philip7086...

    RIP:

    Philip7086 the Scyther
    Caught: Chapter 4
    Defeated: Morty, Chuck's Poliwrath
    Died: Chapter 8, at Level 25
    Died because: Wing Attack missed.

    EDIT: Now that I do the calcs, it seems that Philip7086 had a 35% chance of OHKOing...

    EDIT 2: NVM, the calc assumes Technician...

    Sorry I haven't had time to update folks. But it's coming.

    However, I'm on my way to the Elite 4 without a single death. Feraligatr/Togekiss/Noctowl/Butterfree/Magnezone/Mamoswine. Golem was boxed, as I knew its endgame performance would be subpar compared to Mamoswine.

    Part 2: To Violet City!

    (Double posting like a boss. I'm in the mood to write.)

    I immediately regretted heading out onto Route 29 at night, it was dark as hell itself. Arietta didn't seem to mind it as much as I did, perhaps she was just eager for adventure. Given my previous exploits, I was slightly less confident. Still, Silver had to be stopped before it was too late, so I really had no say in the matter. Fortunately, I started out lucky on this journey, as a red light peered out at me from the trees. I recognised this as a Hoothoot using Foresight. Could it light our way? Of course! With no trouble, Arietta subdued it, and Bishop the Hoothoot, our living torch, was added to the team.

    Of course, this description does not nearly do the calm owl Pokémon justice, but we'll get to that.

    My first instinct was to check Route 46, to the north. The cliff wall was sheer, so there was no way Silver could get anywhere if he'd come through, but it never hurts to check. He could always be camping. He wasn't, of course, otherwise this would be incredibly short, but I did capture a rather bashful Geodude, who I named Aegis. Not a wasted trip at any rate. Cherrygrove City proved fruitless for information too. Nobody had so much as seen Silver, even when he'd battled me earlier. It was almost as though he didn't exist. It was at this point I decided Violet City was my next best bet. It was a hub of activity, and there was a Pokémon Gym - a likely draw for Silver.

    So, in the morning, we set out, catching a small Caterpie named Buggo along the way. I thought it wouldn't be useful to me, but one look at those hilariously disproportionate eyes, and I was totally sold on him. Naughty bastard.

    The team continued to grow strong, with Arietta, Bishop, and Aegis quickly reaching level 10 before Violet City. I didn't want to train Buggo yet, as I was still nervous about using switch training with a freshly caught team, even if Aegis could withstand any attack that life threw at him. His time came though, in the Sprout Tower.

    I'd heard in Violet's Pokémon Centre that a red-headed boy had been seen entering the Tower about half an hour ago. My heart skipped a beat, was the quest over already? Hell no, but you knew that already.

    Sprout Tower is a strange monument in Violet City. The Sages who inhabit it have devoted their lives to learning the way of the Bellsprout. That said, it's made for a remarkably strong structure. It's like a willow tree, that bends in the wind, but never breaks, aided by the counterbalancing middle beam. It's a genius piece of old engineering, and many architects make regular pilgrimages. However, I have no interest in that sort of thing. What I was interested in was the thieving visitor on his way to the top. Knowing that all trainers in this area used Bellsprout as their main Pokémon, I decided to give Buggo a trial run. It worked out well, he handled every Vine Whip that came his way like it was nothing, and Tackled his foes into submission. I was proud of him. Such a tiny caterpillar, such a wrecking ball. By the end, he'd even evolved into a Butterfree, making him the de facto strongest member of the team.

    It taught me never to underestimate my Pokémon, I'll never fully know what they're capable of.

    Anyway, at the top of the Tower, we ran into Silver, who had apparently just handed the Elder Sage a punishing curb-stomp battle.

    "Your battle style... Ruthless. Unfeeling. Uncaring. You seem to care nothing for your Pokémon, as though they are merely your tools. I promise you boy, this attitude will get you nowhere."

    "Shut up, weakling!" And with that, Silver struck the old man across the face, and he fell to the floor. "I have no use for people like you! Now hand over the move!"

    "HEY!" I couldn't stand to see him disrespecting this old man so much. It was despicable. "Show some respect! You're coming back to New Bark with me, Silver. We have much to discuss."

    "You again? The weakling I flattened in Cherrygrove? YOU'RE going to make me come back? HA!" What was wrong with this guy? Not only had I been the one to flatten him, he was obviously deranged. I couldn't let him escape, and sprinted for him, ready to tackle him. But in a blink, he had looted the Sage's robes for something, and leapt out the window, rappelling down the Tower with an Escape Rope. Now I'm sorry, but I was NOT about to try some shit like that. By the time I could run down the stairs, he would be halfway to Azalea Town no doubt. I groaned. Nothing I could do.

    The Sage was fine by the way, he was just in shock from being struck so forcefully, and promptly mugged. "That boy... He was afflicted by the Nuzlocke curse, wasn't he..." I nodded.

    "Like me. But I've got to stop him. He's a thief, and has no idea what he's doing."

    "Then please... Take this. You'll need it, the HM for Rock Smash. But you can't use it without Falkner's Gym Badge."

    "Falkner? This City's gym leader? No thanks, I don't do Gyms. I'm not out for that sort of thing any more."

    "I'm afraid there's no choice, you need the Zephyr Badge's authorisation to use it... And if Silver already has it, then..." I saw his logic. I was trapped. To continue chasing Silver, I would need to take the Pokémon Gym Challenge, so that I was authorised to use Hidden Machines in the Johto region. Of course, this raised the question of why I couldn't use my badges from Sinnoh or Kanto, but as I later found out, they were region-locked. What a brilliant move.

    I booked a match with Falkner for the next day, so that we had time to prepare - I wasn't about to lose another Pokémon, even if it meant Silver gained a sizeable lead. I'd travel through nights if I had to.

    I needn't have worried though, Aegis swept through Falkner's bird Pokémon without breaking a sweat. But there was one more distraction for me in Violet City.

    *ring ring, ring ring*

    "Y'ello?"

    "Joshua! Professor Elm here. It's as we suspected - the Egg was nothing all that special."

    "Good to know it was a waste of time for all involved."

    "Well, maybe not! I have no use for it, but would you like to take it then? It contains a rare Pokémon you might get use out of."

    "Really now? Well, you have my interest..."

    Swampert?
    WTF?!?!?!?
    Is that a typo or something? Because that doesnt naturally occur in B/W not without trading or transfering(which I believe is against nuzlocke rules).
    I say train all 6.

    Actually iirc he's doing a hacked run of some sort. In that vein, don't use Deino, way too much work for zero pay off.

    Showsni, i must say, your nuzlocke is brilliant! It is very funny, my favourite part was the "i did not hit her, i did not! .. Oh hai may"
    that reference is genius, keep up the good work!

    Also aopsuser yours is fantastic if only for the fact that you made tennisace a magikarp lol

    I started a Nuzelock on Pokemon Silver and am about to challenge the first gym.

    Trainer Name: X-Treme
    Pokemon (in Party): PsnTrolol(Kakuna), Blade Hair(Chikorita), SexyAndINo(Pidgy)
    RIP: Rat(Rattatt)

    Rules:
    -I cannot use the PC
    -I can only catch the first pkmn in a route, unless it is a repeat
    -If a pkmn faints, then i put in the PC and never use it again
    -If a pkmn faints in the most trolled situation, I am allowed to decide if it can be used again
    (I had a Kakuna with +5 defense against a Hoothoot that was poisoned. When it had 2 HP left, it got a crit and killed my Kakuna. I was so pissed, that I just granted Kakuna a "resurrection")
    -I must nickname all my pokemon

    Progress:
    -Creamed my rival
    -Got to top of Sprout Tower and got Flash.
    -About to challenge Flying Type Gym, which kind of sucks as all my guys are weak to it besides pidgey, whose defenses are shit anyway.

    Ok, new Nuzlocke. Been a while since I attempted one, and I've never finished one. Anyways, rules are standard, and I'm playing Emerald.

    I've made it to Petalburg City so far.

    Current Team List:

    Party:

    Gulia the Mudkip
    Lv. 7
    Nature: Docile
    Tackle
    Mud-Slap
    Growl

    Currently the best team member, and will be a key member to come.

    Sundavr the Poochyena
    Lv. 5
    Nature: Careful
    Tackle
    Howl

    Going to be replaced as soon as I get a better Pokemon. What better means is variable.

    Hvitr the Ralts
    Lv. 5
    Nature: MODEST
    Growl

    I cannot believe I got this one. He's a definite part of my final team, what with being one of the better Special attackers in the game, and having a Modest nature too boot!

    Dead:

    Thelduin the Wurmple
    Lv. 2-Lv.5

    Died while helping Hvitr to gain XP. It was a bad way to go...

    I've got to agree with AOPSUser, and I've even mentioned it a few times in the videos I'm doing for my own Nuzlocke Challenge. Crits are where the 'unpredictability' part of Nuzlocke difficulty comes into play. I've lost two Pokemon in my own challenge due to crits that I felt were bs, but I just mourned their deaths and then moved on.

    Speaking of my own Nuzlocke Challenge for Fire Red, I finally have some progress I can speak of. I apologize for not having any updates (and that I only have one new episode of my challenge to offer you) but now that I've started my Spring semester of college and have classes as well as an internship, my free time is pretty much nonexistant on weekdays now except for the two hours I have when I wake up before I have to leave, and I usually spend those with my girlfriend. Anyway, episode 7 is my newest update after needing a few different days to ultimately get everything recorded. I had my own "trolled situation" that cost me a Pokemon while I was grinding (luckily, I record my grinding sessions just in case of something like this even if I don't show the grinding in the video) but I pushed on to beat my rival in Cerulean City and clear through Nugget Bridge (except for the guy at the end that gives you the prize). My entire team at the moment, however (except for my Ivysaur) is part-Flying, which isn't going to make things easy for me moving forward, but it's the hand I was dealt and I just have to accept it.
