My first publicized Nuzlocke Ok, so I’ve attempted several Nuzlockes in the past, but never really did anything with them, since I’d usually lose some of my teammates, soft-reset ‘cause I’m a girly-girl who can’t stand the loss, then give up on the run due to guilt of breaking rules. I’ve only ever completed one run, a FireRed Charmander-solo run that I ended up losing to my rival in the championship match. Now, though, I’m finally going to try posting one for Black. Ok, let’s do this. Rules (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Rules (open) Rules (close) 1. Catch first Pokemon you (or shall I say, I) see for each named area, if fainted or ran from then boo-hoo for you who is me. 2. Put fainted Pokemon in box marked “CEMETARY”, never to be removed again (until I either beat or completely fail this Nuzlocke run). 3. Nickname all pokemon caught. 4. Shift setting (Set is too much for me, I'm sorry). I may have to think of other rules as they come up. I'm still not sure whether I should have a dups rule or not. Maybe I'll flip a coin for it when it comes up. Or maybe I can ask you guys whether I should or not. Yeah, that sounds good. RUN START! Before 1st Badge (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Before 1st Badge (open) Before 1st Badge (close) • Chose the girl for this run, as my White is a guy and I’m an equal-opportunity employer. • Named Alisha; it’s the name of the female lead in a book I was thinking of writing but was too lazy to actually write (haven’t we all). • Chose Tepig as my starter, since it’s a pretty cool guy; it beats up Pokemon and doesn’t afraid of anything. Whooped on Bianca and Cheren; oddly enough, my fight with Bianca was closer than the one with Cheren. • Tepig’s a male, so I nickname him Aaron when I get the chance (male lead and protagonist of aforementioned book). (I wish I could find one of these for all of them; oh well *sigh*) Nuvema Town – Aaron the Tepig: Lv. 5, Brave nature, sometimes stubborn (not bad, Speed’s not that great anyways and Flame Charge fixes that) • Killed my first possible catch, a Lv.2 female Patrat, by critting him -_-, • Get items from people, Juniper tells me shit I already know, watch a boring speech with Cheren, beat N like a red-headed stepchild, and get a new mon from Route 2 (didn't kill it this time! yay) Route 2 – Blair the Patrat: Lv. 5, female, Relaxed, mischievous (yeah, not so great, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers… yet) • Crush trainers on route, get some items, head to Dreamyard to crush more trainers, and get myself some grass monkey action Dreamyard – Charles the Pansage: Lv. 10, male, Hardy, quick to flee (Adamant would have been nice, but hey, at least it’s not bad, like some pokemon *cough*Blair*cough*) • Hand Cheren his ass, do the same for gym trainers, decide I'm not strong enough so I leave to grind • new EXP formula + lower-leveled wild Pkmn + higher-leveled owned Pokemon= FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF- • After getting Aaron and Charles to Lv. 12 and Blair to Lv. 11, I get bored and decide that this much should be good enough. I hope I'm not wrong. Arceus help me if I’m wrong. Battle! Pokemon Trainer Alisha vs. Straiton Gym Leader Cress (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Battle! Pokemon Trainer Alisha vs. Straiton Gym Leader Cress (open) Battle! Pokemon Trainer Alisha vs. Straiton Gym Leader Cress (close) vs • Blair gets in a Bite/healing war with Cress’s Lillipup; it only gets 1 crit on me the whole fight, thankfully, although it does get a couple flinches. Relaxed isn’t looking like such a crappy nature right now, I'm sorry I thought it was bad. I think I eventually stall out his Bite’s PP, as he starts using Work Up enough times for me to get attacks in and kill it. Potion overload ftw! In hindsight, I should have been Tackling instead of Biting the whole time. I didn't think about it until the last couple turns, and the extra damage may not have changed the match, but still. vs • I switch to Charles for Panpour; even after a Work Up, he does pitiful damage with Water Gun. He does at one point crit and put me in the red, but a Potion fixes that nicely. Charles just glares at Panpour till it's at -6 Def, then KOs with his Vine Whip. When you're Charles, there's no kill like overkill. TRIO BADGE GET! AfterBadge Aftermath (Move your mouse to reveal the content) AfterBadge Aftermath (open) AfterBadge Aftermath (close) • I get the Trio Badge and TM83 Work Up, which I promptly teach to Blair and Charles over Bide and Leer respectively (oddly enough Aaron can’t learn it; that kinda sucks) • Fennel brings me to her room, gives me HM01 Cut and tells me to get Dream Mist from Munna. What a sick, twisted individual. • Instead, I use Cut to get some items from Route 2, then go heal up and save.
