    Continuing on..

    So, after we watched Wally casually walk into the grass and encounter a Ralts, (which I've always wondered how he levels up considering Ralts' only known move at that level is Growl) we carry on to Route 104 where we get extremely lucky and dodge encountering another wurmple or poochyena, and BAM.

    Monica
    Nature: Lonely

    We then moved onto Petalburg Woods, yet our high hopes of a Slakoth/Shroomish were quickly dashed when a Wurmple appeared, disappointed.
    [​IMG]
    Todd
    Nature: Relaxed

    Levels were looking good as we entered Rustboro City, due to somevigorous grinding :P with the whole team at around lv12.

    Route 116 proved another great training zone for the team, also adding a nincada to the team, but due to already having 2 bugs in the team, was immediately boxed.

    Vincent
    Nature: Timid

    Rusturf Tunnel also provided us with a Whismur.
    [​IMG]
    Marvin
    Nature: Bashful

    But we couldn't waste anymore time, the first badge had to be acquired, so as we entered the gym, Monica was raring to go, and before Roxanne had a chance to blink, her entire gym was flooded with Water Guns, earning us the Stone Badge. :D

    We soon had to defeat a team aqua goon that was troubling Mr. Briney, surely he could have taken out the goons Poochyena with that Wingull of his, I mean, Briney's an old guy, surely Peeko would be around lv70... just sayin'

    So, after we did that, we met Briney back at his house who took us on his boat to Dewford town, we immediately spoke to the fisherman to give us an old rod and fished in Dewford.

    Bruce
    Nature: Brave

    Then we headed on it to Granite Cave, whilst crossing everything we had to not find a Zubat.. :P and it paid off. :D
    [​IMG]
    Rhonda
    Nature: Naughty

    We continued through the cave, levelling up as we went and found Steven at the end of the cave, who gave us TM47... which is no good seeing as though how can I teach Steel Wing to anything I have? :(

    The gym battle was looking to be a tough one, 3 fighting types, but just as Roxanne's gym was drowned, Brawly's was literally blown away by Anita's Gust attacks. Awarding us the Knuckle Badge. :D

    Well, the whole point of a Nuzlocke is that there's a condition to lose. You can continue, but then it wouldn't really be a Nuzlocke anymore ):

    I decided to start a Nuzlocke on Gold while I wait for that last Pokemon for my Yellow Scramble. My take on the optional rules:

    * Repeats - If I end up with 5 Sentrets, that's my bad luck.

    * Item use - I can use items at any time, but no Revives.

    * Pokemon Center use - Unlimited.

    * Legendaries - Not allowed.

    * Level limit - No hard cap, but grinding wild Pokemon is disallowed, making for a soft cap.

    * Gift Pokemon - Not allowed.

    * Switch and set - Playing on set.

    My starter is a Cyndaquil named Quilly. As I type this, I'm heading into Cherrygrove for the first time...

    EDIT: My safefile got corrupted, so I'm going to have to start over. I'm going to be using Gold version again, and the same starter.

    ANOTHER EDIT: Looks like all my Gen II carts wreck savefiles, so I can't do a Gen II Nuzlocke like I wanted to. I might do a Gen III Nuzlocke, but I'll have to think about it.

    From Dewford, we pestered Briney once more to take us on his vessel, this time, to Slateport.
    When we arrived we made short work of the trainers on the beach, and the same fate was in store for Team Aqua at the museum.
    We ventured out to Route 110 and came across...
    [​IMG]
    Lola
    Nature: Gentle.
    I was pretty ecstatic about adding an Electrike to the team, so Anita was boxed and Lola joined the team.

    Lola was getting good levels going from lv12 to lv16 in no time at all, and then, the zigzagoon from Hell in the trick house... Lola copped a headbutt, possibly the strongest headbutt ever to be delivered from a zigzagoon, and didnt stand a chance. :(

    After burying the dead and Anita joined the Team once more, we headed up to face May, whom was frolicking around in the tall grass, make of that as you may.

    May was pummeled by the team, and we soon arrived in Mauville, we secured HM Rock Smash and headed off to Route 117 to add another Pokemon to the roster.
    [​IMG]
    Fred
    Nature: Careful

    We defeated Wally and every other trainer in vicinity, and then took out the pathetic Winstrate family.

    Wattson proved a decent challenge for the team with Eva and Marvin almost both falling to the same fate as Lola had earlier, but we managed to defeat the leader with no casualties, giving us the Dynamo Badge.

    ^^ If you had gotten a shedinja you could have almost flawlessly swept Wattson. Apparently with Wonder Guard his entire team is walled (except for Voltorb or something, but heck, Voltorb is easy to kill)

    Nuzlocke Update: One challege left

    Hey everyone! Here's my second to last update on my challenge so far. Team Airstrike has successfully captured the 3 swords-pokemon, captured the roaming Genie, and defeated the true-blue elite four along with Alder. In the second challenge to the elite four, our team suffered major .. sad losses... 3 to be exact. May Darkness the Gothitelle, Rager the Gyarados, and Candy the Escavalier be remembered always. Rager and Candy both helped me catch the 4 legends with a false swipe/ thunder wave combo. To extremely useful and loved pokemon .. I for sure will miss them :'( but in better knews, the remaining team welcomes with open arms 3 new team members, one of which will have to undergoe intense training for our last challenge: The destruction of Landorus, spirit of the Unova shrine. Here's my update of the current team, in the next update ( to come really soon ) I will include all pokemon that I have caught on my journey, dead alive and boxed :)

    **Genders will be color coded from now on

    ahhhhh, I was aware of this, but I already had Beautifly in the team and I see her as a better pokemon than Shedinja, due to the fact that it only takes one miscalculation with an opponents moveset (ie. Machop using Rock Tomb) to kill it, not to mention Beautifly has a more desirable moveset for a nuzlocke run.
    Also, I see Shedinja as unobtainable in nuzlocke runs, when nincada evolves into ninjask, thats the same pokemon you caught, and the shedinja is a new pokemon, and I dont think that's right to get a free pokemon. :)

    Hello everyone! I'm new to this challenge (and the forums) so I decided to give it a try with my Sapphire version. The rules I chose are: unlimited Pokémon Center use, allowed items, no repeats, no legendaries, no gift Pokémon, and switch.

    After receiving Greg, the Treecko, the first wild Pokémon I met was a female Zigzagoon I named Meg. I was leveling her up in Route 104 when suddenly Youngster Billy sent his Taillow to kill her. I ran to the Pokémon Center, but it was too late for Meg. I was left with Greg and Marla, a Lotad I found in Route 102. However, as soon as I entered Petalburg Woods a wild Shroomish came to join the team. James and Greg fought against the trainers and Pokémon in the woods. They also helped me beat Roxanne, which was a piece of cake with James' Mega Drain and Greg's Absorb. Now I'm heading to Route 116, where I met Ted, the Whismur. I'll train Ted before battling Team Aqua in the Rusturf Tunnel.

    Team:
    [​IMG] Greg Lv. 15
    [​IMG] James Lv. 16
    [​IMG] Marla Lv. 4
    [​IMG] Ted Lv. 6

    Pokemon Black Nuzlocke complete

    ** Genders will be color coded

    After a massive night of training, intense days of fighting, Team Airstrike has prevailed. We suffered a lot of losses, made lots of friends, and grew strong friendships bonds with each other. As mentioned before, I will not give a full detailed report of all the pokemon I met along the journey, party, boxed, and dead. :) We really did it:
    • Defeated the elite 4 along with N and Ghetsis
      [*]Defeated Cynthia
      [*]Caught the 3 legendary Swords-mon along with Tornadus
      [*]Defeated Kyurem
      [*]Defeated the elite 4 once more, with Alder as its Champion
      [*]Found and defeated Landorus, pokemon of the Unova Shrine

    Completing a pokemon Nuzlocke is fun, exciting and frustrating all at the same time. I must say: exploding rocks are even more annoying in gen 5, cause of sturdy -_-

    So without further delay, here are all of the pokemon i've obtained throughout this journey and added to Team Airstrike:

    And that is all there is :) I enjoyed this Nuzlocke a lot, and can't wait to do another. In fact I am starting another lol, a Nuzlocke of pokemon Soul Silver. Updates will come once I get started, probably do an update per gym, but for now I'll list the rules I will be following:
    • Only the first pokemon in each new area seen can be caught ( seen in wild battle/ gift) copies count as first pokemon
    • faint=dead
    • 2 items can be bought per town (healing wise)
    • 3 pokeballs can be bought per town
    • NO LEGENDS. I'm sure this game does not require we catch a legend, so i will have no problem killing them all
    • items usable, unlimited pokemon center

    Notes: If I missed something that you would like me to add feel free to let me know

    Also a question: The legendary dogs, should I capture them or kill them? It won't be a problem killing them since they only flee, catching them would be the challenge... then again that could prove to be impossible (maybe). So ill take suggestions to help me decide :)

    Thanks to all those reading, very very sorry for such huge updates D:

    Continuing on from where we left off...
    As much as it was tempting to muck around in the game corner.. (yeah, nah) we continued north, with Rhonda acting as a make-shift HM slave, rock smashing the boulder blocking the path, we left a trail of fainted pokemon in our wake on Route 112, before entering the grass and capturing our new team member.

    Carlos
    Nature: Serious

    And not long after in Fiery Cave...
    [​IMG]
    Dawn
    Nature: Jolly

    We continued our massacre of pokemon on the other side of Route 112, before entering Route 113, with PLENTY of great balls, just in case we got lucky with a Skarmory. But sadly no.
    [​IMG]
    Shelly :3 heheh
    Nature: Mild
    Another Fire Type.... ARRRRGH, but on the brighter side, at least it wasnt a Spinda.

    Wasnt really much to do in Fallabor, so we got TM Dig, grabbed some potions and antidotes and continued on into Route 114..... where YES! finally we get something desirable. :D
    [​IMG]
    Dennis
    Nature: Quiet
    Anita went back into the box, and Dennis was taken out.
    And then the grinding began.... (*inspirational Rocky music*), and between you and me, has anyone ever looked at how long it takes to level up a fucking Swablu, JEEEEZZUS! 'Dennis gained 556 EXP. Points!' (YES!) *bar moves the tiniest amount* GAAAAHHH.
    But finally, Dennis was at the same level as the rest of my team. :D and I swear, if anything ever kills it, I will probably rage quit, the amount of time I spent training that thing is ridiculous.

    We saved Prof. Cozmo from Team Magma... sorta.. they kinda still got the meteorite... and ran into a wild Zubat, which was killed immediately because who wants a zubat? :/

    So, off we went in pursuit of Team Magma/Aqua to Mt. Chimney, where Team Magma were made to look like a pathetic bunch of Youngster Joeys, even Maxie was no match for the awesome power of Monica's Defense Curl/Rollout combo. :D

    We traversed the treacherous Jagged Pass, but was unable to find a Spoink, instead..
    [​IMG]
    Harry
    Nature: Quiet

    Much the same occured at Flannery's Gym, ROLLOUT ALL THE POKEMON!!!
    The only hitch in the gym challenge was that Monica got poisoned against Flannery's Slugma's Smog Attack while setting up with Defense Curl, but after we received the Heat Badge, we made it back to the Pokemon Centre in time, where Todd and Marvin were boxed in place of Rhonda and Harry, in anticipation for the massive battle with Norman.

    Since my Scramble is going really poorly.. I decided to give this a go on a new save file on my emulator [android phone].. I think I will enjoy this more.. and will be able to stick with it as it's more "real"

    Emerald Run
    Rules:

    Pokecenter; unlimited

    Repeated Pokemon; allowed

    Each patch of grass will be a new location.. as long as the patch of grass is at least 5x5

    No items allowed in-battle. no revives at all.

    Legendaries are allowed; if my team can survive the battle.. we deserve to use them. 1 legend only per team.



    I started out with 'Kippin' the Mudkip, and he was just like me.. a relaxed personality and chill. Once we got the talking with May and Prof out of the way.. we set on our journey.

    Our first meeting was with a Poochyena.. unfortunately as we tried to catch it, we crit'd it and missed out. Later we ran into another one to the north of the first PokeCenter and was able to catch it. A bit naive, but not too bad. Patti was now on the squad.

    As I was training her, a Wurmple.. yes.. a Wurmple.. pulled out two crits in a row and sent her to the grave.. I honestly couldn't believe it.. since I've never used a Pooch before and was excited to see where we would go.. Naive was decent as well.. but oh well..

    Kippin and I ran into a Zigzagoon and we caught him instantly. Zackz is gentle and seems reliable. Unfortunately.. once again.. the crit gods do not want me to be happy early on.. as he fell to a Poocheyna in a trainer battle.. lv5 vs lv5. I thought we had it.. but apparently not.

    So far it's been a struggle to find teammates for Kip, but we're still growing strong together so we'll eventually get it together.. hopefully..

    My team:

    Kippin the Mudkip
    lv 9, relaxed

    Patti, naive lv4

    Emerald Nuzlocke pt 2.

    A lot of patches of grass between Petalburg and Rustboro.. I might have to adjust the rules so I don't have too many chances at teammates. And I get to bond with the Pokemon I have, blah blah.

    Anyways.. I've been working my way up to Rustboro and losing a lot of Pokemon along the way.. I'm really pushing my team more than I should, imo.. which is why so many have died.. which is disappointing because I had a nice Marill I was working with.. and I found another Poochyena that was doing well.. but all went to hell when I pushed him too hard and a Shroomish Effect Spored me into a Poison+Absorb rape that took out 8hp, which was a lot.. ha.


    [​IMG]
    Loaf.. he's cool, and I got lucky to find him.. so I had to go for him.

    Lax nature, meh.. but he's doing alright so far.

    Lurna is doing fine.. Mild nature, has decent moves and holding her own atm.

    Muffin is a new addition, Lonely, and I hope can be on my squad for a while, I'll need some stability later on.

    Kippin is still the anchor of the team, and hasn't done much lately as I've been working to lvl up my other Pokemon..he's solid.

    Swallow is my new girl, Brave nature and is pretty good. [of course it was vs bug pokemon]. I can see her doing well for the squad, so I look forward to her assistance. Glad i found her early.. since I don't think I'll get another chance at a flying type.

    [​IMG]

    The dead.. so far I'm not thrilled with them dying.. I did want them on my team.. but that was poor training on my part.. I need to fix my ways if I want to survive this journey.

    Zackz, Patti, Ponch, Merill, Honch.. RIP. Sorry.

    Nuzlocke Update: Soul Silver

    The team Airstrike of Pokemon Soulsilver has gone off to a nice start. Chompy and I caught a lot of cool friends, helped Mr. Pokemon exchange eggs with Prof. Elm and even beat the first gym. We were unlucky in not being able to aquire a rock type to fight the gym with .. so Chompy agreed to fill in and totally destroy Falkner and his pidgey-evolution crew.

    We also suffered a loss, completely due to my own stupidity and lack of focus while training...

    As we left the gym to get healed up, Prof. Elm called with news about this egg. Settled on not training the togepi-to-hatch, but still going to hatch it while in Violet town :D

    So here are the current party pokemon (5):

    Falkner's Roost TM could come be very very useful, and an asset to the team, but i'm undecided as to whether I should use it now or wait for a pokemon that might be better equipped to use it...

    Slakoth is like.. one of the worst Pokemon to have on a Nuzlocke.. that loafing around almost took his life on 3 different ocassions. I keep forgetting about his ablity in the heat of battle..

    Once it evolves to Vigoroth, dont evolve it further, Vigoroth makes up for all the training you had to do with Slakoth, great attack power. Slaking will just give you the same problems.
