    Decided to Nuzlocke my White 2, since the reviews everywhere said that these particular games were childishly easy. I got a quick question: in the Castelia Sewers, would the first encounter be the very first thing you encounter period, or the first wild Pokemon you run into after you team up with your rival?

    It should be the first thing you encounter(even with your rival). Because in previous games,(such as with Cheryl in D/P), meeting the first pokemon even together with a NPC is still considered a first encounter.

    K thanx, hoping there might have been some technicality, but w/e. I'll find a way to beat Burgh with a Dewott and Scraggy....


    EDIT: Coming here just to vent my rage. My White 2 Nuzlocke ended super early at the third gym.....to nothing more than bad luck. I had a lv. 24 Scraggy, ready to go. He was at 32/60 HP....I was going to face Burgh, didn't have a regular potion, so I decided I would be fine in battle and just heal at the right time. I mean, gym leaders always send their best Pokemon out last, so as long as I was at +2 (from Moxie) and at full health, Leavanny wouldn't be too hard (also would've leveled up to 25 by the time Swadloon and Dwebble were gone). Battle mode was on "Set".
    So the battle starts with a Swadloon...3HKO with a Silk Scarf-boosted Headbutt, and no damage taken because they all scored flinches! Next up comes....Leavanny? What the fuck? So, yes, I use a Super Potion first. Of course, that didn't matter, because the very first move is a Razor Leaf that scores a GODDAMN CRITICAL HIT!

    WHAT

    THE

    FUCK?!

    So then I basically lost. The only other two I had were a lv. 22 Dewott and a freshly caught lv. 16 Roggenrola. It's bad enough he trolls and sends out his best second, but to get a critical? I just can't even believe it. If it came out last, I would be at full health, ready to kill with a +2 STAB Payback. My other two team members that died and I probably would have won if I kept them alive:

    Lillipup (lv. 12): Training it on Route 20...it was at half health against a wild lv. 10 Sewaddle. No problem, I figured. But it kills my dog with a Bug Bite. I didn't even know it had a move that strong at that level. What a load of horse shit.

    Elekid (lv. 10): Died almost immediately after I caught it. I would only use the first capture of each route in the main journey, but I still wanted to catch as many as I wanted just for the sake of completing the Pokedex. Those Pokemon I wouldn't nickname and just put in a box called "DONT USE".
    That being said, I was fighting a Magnemite and got it to red health...but Elekid was weak, too. I mean, this Magnemite was literally at 1 HP...if not, then very close. Throw the Pokeball. If it got caught, Elekid would still be alive. But, lo and behold, he fucking escaped and killed Elekid. Perhaps I should have played more conservatively....or maybe this is a lesson that Nuzlockers shouldn't catch more than the first on a route.

    EDIT 2: More Rage. It's bad enough that I lost, but I can't start a new file because I already got the Genesect wondercard and did the Memory Link. If I erase, I lose all that and have to get Genesect from somebody else. So now I have no choice but to finish my journey in shame. Shame.

    Cool thread, I myself have attempted a couple of nuzelockes but have never completed one. Currently I am working on a Heart Gold one but I am little demoralized by some deaths on my team

    The black is an emulator glitch.
    He was my last pokemon. I later went back and found out that hariyama completely breaks the elite four in emerald. It is gentle and not ev-trained, and with no item at lvl 54 it could solo the entire elite four and champion. It is, unfortunately, a complete carry pokemon, relying on arm thrust until you get dive. Then it quickly turns into a monster, as you pick up vital tms to compliment its godly stats. My strategy for the elite four was to belly drum at the first turn, which left me with 120ish hp, then hyper potion, then kill everybody.

    moveset: brick break, earthquake, strength, belly drum.

    Also, I should mention my way of taking out tate and liza, which often give people trouble. I found out that even though a Hariyama trained from a Makuhita does't have fake out, it can be relearned with a heart scale. I led with Manectrike (which I was incredibly lucky to get, with a modest nature) and Hariyama. I fake-outed the claydol, while manectrike ohko'd Xatu with thunderbolt. Then I doubleswitched to swellow and pelliper, and surfed the rest to death.

    So I restarted my Black Nuzlocke, and its going pretty good so far. Started with Oshawott, who has been fucking awesome. Im not gonna do any fanfic or anything, but i just beat the second gym (Lenora), with no real losses (only Fodder the Purrloin) and no fighting types. Well I would've had a fighting type, as the first pokemon i found outside Pinwheel was a Timburr, but a Crit water gun from my then oshawott OHKO'd

    Team (open)
    Gohan the Dewott (M)
    Lvl. 21
    Ability: Torrent
    Quiet Nature
    -Retaliate
    -Water Gun
    -Razor Shell
    -Rock Smash

    Gohan has done incredible so far. He has been bulky when needed, tanking critical hit Tackles from Lillipups and such. The Quiet Nature gives him an amazing SpA of around 46 (guesstimating), which is the highest attacking stat on the time. Overall, Water has had amazing neutral coverage throughout the game, and Gohan has been an incredibly reliable tank to take down even the toughest foes.


    Jared the Herdier (M)
    Lvl. 21
    Ability: Intimidate :D
    Serious Nature
    -Take Down
    -Retaliate
    -Tackle
    -Bite

    So powerful and bulkyth. Take Down can mega destruct anything. He was key in helping me take down Lenora's Watchog, as I foddered my Purrloin on the boosted Retaliate, then took it out by Intimidating it with Jared. Take Down hits like a truck at this point, although it has felt like it has about 60% Accuracy. Despite this, Jared can take on almost anything, as foes are primarily physical, and Intimidate lets him out damage his foes easily.


    Pluto the Drilbur (M)
    Lvl. 21
    Ability: Sand Force
    Sassy Nature
    -Metal Claw
    -Dig
    -Fury Swipes
    -Rock Smash

    Yeah, I abused Repels until a dust cloud appeared, but whatever, nobody said thats against the rules. Before it got Dig, I mostly grinded Drilbur, as it just didn't hit hard enough despite having the highest Attack and Speed on the team. Rock Smash let me kill Audino's quickly, though. However, once Dig came, Drilbur became a monster, easily OHKOing many fragile first stage pokemon. Even with the Sassy Nature, its still fast enough to outspeed most things, and its also fairly bulky at this point. Incredibly useful pokemon.


    Lillil the Petilil (F)
    Lvl. 19
    Ability: Chlorophyll
    Modest Nature
    -Mega Drain
    -Leech Seed
    -Sleep Powder
    -I forget, I think its Synthesis or something. Never use this move

    The most recent addition to my team, and she looks promising. To my disappointment, I caught a Cottonee in Pinwheel. However, after I caught it, I realized I could trade for this beast. Once she gets Giga Drain and Quiver Dance, she can just put stuff to sleep and set up on everything. However right now, she's a slow, albeit powerful, pokemon who can outstall anything with her multitude of draining moves.


    Diablo the Pansear (M)
    Lvl. 12
    Ability: Gluttony
    Hardy Nature
    -Incinerate
    -Lick
    -Scratch
    -Some other shitty move

    I have not touched this since Cilan. Its my only remaining fodder mon though, so I will find a good use for Diablo when I don't want a more important mon to die.


    Boxed (open)
    Nothing


    Dead (open)
    Patrat the Patrat (F)
    Lvl. 5
    Careful Nature
    -Tackle
    -Cut
    -Leer i think

    I know I foddered this, but I can't remember when or why... Also I forgot to nickname it..

    Fodder the Purrloin (?)
    Lvl. 11
    I literally never looked at its nature...
    -Shitty Moves

    I never used this thing, but it lived up to its name. I sacked it to Lenora's Watchog because fuck Purrloin..


    Going through the forest now. Don't want to lose anything important. Im hoping to get a Darumaka and/or Scraggy in the Desert.

    Hey all, I'm back. Sorry for the long break from updates, I lost my DS with my Nuzlocke game since back to ... well yesterday :D I do not have an update yet. But once i figure out how to link my previous updates to my new one, and once i begin working on the Nuzlocke again I will give a big update from where I last was to now, don't worry lol. This post is purely just to let everyone know I did not stop and forget :3

    Good luck for all the new Nuzlockers. I'll be scrolling through and viewing all the challenges I've missed in the mean while

    (firered) I am a bit low on pokemon and I kinda sorta wasted the past few routes trying to fish for a cool water pokemon and only getting magikarps and horseseas. Are there any extenuating circumstances for the safari zone so I have a better chance of getting some good pokemon / any in there. I would hate to go in there, run into a paras, and then it runs away before I can catch it.

    Depends on your rules really Scarfwynaut, besides maybe if you had the No deplicates rule, the billion magikarps wont bother you as much....

    Next update for my Fire Red Nuzlocke is up

    Gym 3 through Gym 4 (open)

    -Left Vermillion and headed towards rock tunnel.
    -While beating several foes I also happened to catch Babyboomer the Voltorb, who was immediately boxed, though he may be used depending on what I catch later in the game
    -Entered the Rock Tunnely captured Bruce the Zubat who stayed with me only because I didn't feel like backtracking out of the tunnel
    -Stormed through the tunnel, defeating every hiker, pokemaniac, and young picnicer girl (why are they alone in a dark tunnel full of creepy old men anyway?) with ease. All the while my team became vastly overleveled.
    -Oh yeah, Gotlegs? evolved into Dugtrio, and Percy evolved into Primeape
    -Got out of the tunnel, and defeated even more Pokemanics, Hikers, and Picnicers.
    -Reached Lavander Town, healed my team, and went into the tower to defeat my rival.
    -Despite my level advantage, the battle was tougher than I thought, but still a comfortable victory
    -Went on my way and captured Chance the Growlithe, and eventually got to Celadon City.
    -In Celadon I got two gift Pokemon. Layla the Eevee, who was immediatley boxed, though may be withdrawn to be evolved into a Jolteon, and Hokus the Abra. Hokus became a permanant member, though he needed to be babied for quite awhile. Also picked up the Tea from the old lady in the house.
    ***Side note: I will only allow myself to get one Pokemon from the Celdon Game Corner, so Abra is it.
    -After 7 levels of baby grinding, Hokus evolved into Kadabra
    -Entered Rocket Hideout, and after some more level grinding with Hokus, easily defeated the grunts. Chobani evolved into Venasaur. Giovanni was a push over as Chobani and Gotlegs? easily wrecked him, though Kangkashkan was stronger than I remembered (Level 29)
    -Stored Percy the Primeape, as the abundancy of Poison and Flying types in the game really made him not useful
    -Got the Silph Scope and went into the Gym. There I basically soloed it with Kadabra's Confusion and Psybeam.
    -Before I fought Erika, I opened the gates to Saffron and got myself the Psychic TM from Mr. Psychic. Taught it to Hokus and went back to the Celadon Gym.
    -Soloed Erika in 3 Psychic attacks from Hokus. (And she said I wouldnt win)
    -Got fly from the hermit on Route 16
    -Taught Fly to Ruffrabble, and flew back to Lavander Town.
    -Save in Lavander Town.


    The Team (open)

    [​IMG]

    Chobani the Quiet Venasaur (M)
    Level 32
    Ability: Overgrow
    Moves: Tackle, Razor Leaf, Sleep Powder, Leech Seed
    Opinion: The clear Team Leader, Chobani has been with me from the beginning. While his usefulness now is running low due to the upcoming major battles and the joining of Hokus, he still gives my team the bulk and backbone it needs. If a foe is a heavy hitter who do I call? Chobani. If I need health restored who do I call? Chobani. Chobani has all the tools he needs to keep himself and my team alive, and if he were to die I would be screwed.

    [​IMG]

    Ruffrabble the Docile Fearrow
    Level 30
    Ability: Keen Eye
    Moves: Peck, Pursuit, Fly, Fury Attack
    Opinion: Like Chobani and Percy, Ruffrabble is finding himself less useful, and more and more overshadowed by his teammates-- namely Hokus. His attack and speed are alright, but he isn't the bulkiest thing around, and lacks the powerful moves and Super Effective coverage of his other teammates. While he does his job, he isn't doing it as well as he used to, and may soon find himself suffering the same fate as Percy: being put away in the reserves. But for now, he will stay.

    [​IMG]
    Gotlegs? the Serious Dugtrio
    Level 31
    Ability: Sand Veil
    Moves: Cut, Rock Slide, Magnitude, Dig
    Opinion: While more useful than Ruffrabble, and about on par with Chobani, Gotlegs? still suffers from being overshadowed by Hokus. On top of that, he is very frail. But unlike his previous teammates, Gotlegs? has one thing they dont have: Super Effective coverage. Between Dig and Rock Slide, Gotlegs? can hit and KO pretty much an Pokemon that comes in for a Super Effective damage, giving him far more utility than his counter parts. Despite not being the best, he is far from the worst will most likely stay for the rest of the game.

    [​IMG]

    Hokus the Hardy Kadabra
    Level 29
    Ability: Inner Focus
    Moves: Reflect, Recover, Psybeam, Psychic
    Opinion: The clear MVP of the team, Hokus saw the most use-- and success-- in this chapter. Though he is the rookie of the team, he is also the envy of his teammates. Possessing the best STAB in the game, he will easily walk over all will oppose him. Psychic (the move) at this point in the game is just overkill. Coupled with Reflect for bulk and Recover for staying power I have a real monster hear. And while I may not be screwed without him, he certainly makes life a whole hell of a lot easier. With Hokus here the future looks even brighter.

    None =D


    The State of the Union (open)

    With the team I have now, I feel really safe about things to come. All I really lack is an electric type (which defeats half of my rivals team in the future.) Thinking about getting either Jolteon or Electabuzz/Raichu. I may also need a water type, but so far that doesnt seem to be too necessary. A Snorlax would also do my team much good, but overall this team seems pretty solid and I have high hopes for it in the future.

    Alright, starting a Black Nuzlocke.

    Rules:
    General Nuzlocke guidelines.
    -First mon in any area.
    -If a mon faints it dies.
    -Nickname all mons.
    -Infinite Pokecenter use.
    -No using Legends, but they may be caught.
    -Shinies MUST be used.

    Chapter 1: The Pokeballs (open)
    So I want to Nuzlocke Black. Cool. I delete my finished Scramble and boot up a Nuzlocke!

    Oh hi Professor Juniper! Got anything for me?
    ...You want my GENGER??? Wow. I have nothing to say to this.

    Blah blah yeah I want a Pokemon!

    ...let's see...

    Tepig, I choose you!

    Now time to battle Cheren and Bianca!
    *2 minutes later*
    OK let's go to Bianca's house, because why the fuck not?
    Bianca: I'm a good trainer! I can go on a journey!
    Uh, I just smashed you with a Tepig. I don't think that qualifies you as a good trainer.

    Let's go to the lab!
    Yeah sure I'll take the Pokedex. Oh, and I'll name Tepig Orcinus.

    Route 1:
    I KNOW HOW TO CATCH POKEMON DAMMIT!
    Bianca: I want to go to town so I can buy Poke Balls!
    I should not have to tell you how wrong that is.

    Alright, let's have a little catching competition. One problem: this is a Nuzlocke.

    ...
    *catches Matezoide the Lillipup*
    OH WE ALL TIED AT 2 MONS. Hah. I tied with NUZLOCKE RULES.
    Ahem.

    Go to town, listen to boring speech by Ghestis.
    "We should liberate Pokemon!"
    lol why

    N talks to me, we have a battle!
    *Orcinus smashes his Purrloin, Matezoide gains 2 levels*

    OK, buy Pokeballs. And Potiions.

    *Goes to Route 2, catches Ullar the HM slave Purrloin.*

    Blah blah boring battles.

    *Lass has Purrloin, uses Assist even though it has NO TEAMMATES*
    Are you fucking serious?

    *rest of the battles are easy shit*

    Yeah, yeah. Hey, let's go get a Pansage!

    *two easy battles later*
    I get Pwnemon the Pansage!

    Let's battle Cheren!
    *Pwnemon sweeps him*

    I wish I had an Easy Button.

    Let's grind a little, because why the fuck not?
    *team is lv. 12*

    VS. Cress:
    I lead with Tepig, he leads with Lillipup. He Bitespams, I Emberspam. He heals with Potion, I Emberspam some more. He Bitespams, I heal. I Ember to kill.

    I send in Pwnemon to deal with Panpour. +1 Water Gun is a 5HKO, while my Vine Whip is a 4HKO. Easy win.

    Team: (No dead, benched, or HM slaves, LVP to MVP)
    [​IMG]

    Nature: Hardy

    Moves:
    -Leer

    [​IMG]
    Nickname: Orcinus
    Level: 12
    Nature: Sassy
    Met: Numeva Town
    Moves:
    -Tackle

    Level: 12
    Nature: Timid
    Met: Dreamyard
    Moves:

    Chapter 2: Preschoolers and Plasma Grunts (open)
    So HI FENNEL.
    Dreamyard? Certainly.
    *teaches Ullar Cut*

    ...Oh hi Bianca.
    ...Ooh look Munna!
    Wait..who are those people!
    "We are Team Plasma!"
    Wow, two people? Nice team.
    Oh you're just Grunts. Oh yeah, you look like some of Ghestis's minions.

    *they kick Munna and then battle me*
    *I kick their asses*
    *HOLOGRAPHIC GHESTIS*

    Oh it was just Musharna. But Fennel gets his Dream Mist!
    Bianca: "I want to catch that new Pokemon!"
    Then maybe you should GO INTO THE GRASS?
    Idiots.
    Ahem.

    *finds an Audino, Orcinus gets 2 levels from it*
    Nice

    *gets a C-Cear, too bad I have no usable Wifi.*

    Goes to Route 3!
    Ooh look daycare!
    *fights a Nursery Aide*

    Alright, this is the slide where you can stand on the middle! Seriously GameFreak?

    Alright, Preschooler fight time!
    First Preschooler: HYPER BEAM!
    :O
    *Pansage uses Vine Whip, Orcinus OHKOs with Ember*
    BULLSHIT
    Second Preschooler: "Trainer, I wanna play with you!"
    *backs away slowly*

    *Fights Twins, easy win for Pwnemon and Orcinus*

    Alright, time for Cheren!
    *Pwnemon beats the shit out of Oshawott, Orcinus curbstomps Purrloin*
    Orcinus grew to level 17!
    FUCK YES
    Orcinus evolved into Pignite!
    Orcinus forgot Odor Sleuth and learned Arm Thrust!
    FUCK YES

    *Plasma Grunts run by, carrying a Pokemon stolen from a Preschooler*
    Seriously what's with these Preschoolers
    FINE WE'LL GET IT BACK.

    *catches Jas the Pidove*

    Alright, to Wellspring Cave!
    *catches Leethoof the Roggenrola*
    Ooh a Plasma Grunt!
    *owns the shit out of him*
    Another Plasma Grunt!
    *double battle, Cheren has his Oshawott KOed by Patrat's Bide, we win easily*
    Let's get out of here.
    *proceeds to curbstorm Route 3*
    Oh Doubles Grass! Time for a bit of grinding!
    *Matezoide is lv. 15, Orcinus is lv. 18*
    Yeah I'm tired already. Blame me.
    *gets through the rest of the Route*
    WHAT MATEZOIDE ISN'T lv. 16 YET?

    *enters Nacerene City, and BOOM CHEREN GIVES ME CHESTO BERRIES*
    That's rather nice of you...

    *easily beats N, Matezoide evolves into Herdier!*
    Alright! Time to go out into Pinwheel Forest...
    *Plasma Grunt blockade in action*
    FUCK THAT
    *catches WWarrior the Tympole*
    Future HM slave?
    *goes down the forest, into Doubles grass*
    Two wild Pidoves!
    *They gang up on Matezoide, and BOTH CRIT, KOing Matezoide*
    FUUUUUUUUUUU-----------

    *backtracks to Pokemon center, creates graveyard*
    Double Grass, Double Crit.

    *gets through the Route, Orcinus smashes Challenge Rock to give me a Star Piece*
    Nice. When I get to Iccirus I can profit from this.

    *goes into gym*

    *first trainer is weaksauce, second trainer easily goes down to Orcinus*

    Third trainer:
    *Jas beats one Lillipup, but the second one CRITS, and KOs him*
    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    ...
    ...
    ...WHY???

    *gets to Lenora*

    Lenora battle:
    I let Pwnemon take the Intimidate, but Orcinus gets Leered. Twice. After one Arm Thrust I let Leethoof take the Take Down, then switch back in Orcinus, to KO. Then I switch to Leethoof to take the boosted Retaliate, but Lenora opts for Hypnosis. Then it KOs Leethoof with Crunch. Orcinus gets hit with Hypnosis (GDI), and two Retaliates, but wakes up and uses Arm Thrust. Then I switch out to Pwnemon, who takes a Retaliate, allowing me to heal Orcinus. Pwnemon is then KOed by Retaliate (fuck). Orcinus comes back in, takes a Retaliate, and KOs with Arm Thrust.

    Ooh more Plasma trouble! Tune in next time!

    Ranger after defeat: "Me? Losing here? In PINWHEEL FOREST?"
    Interesting. Same dialogue, same guy 2 years later in Black 2.
    Plasma Grunt: "Sorry, I don't have what you're looking for!"
    Then who does?
    Plasma Grunt: "Ask my buddies!"
    That was convenient.

    *after trekking through the Forest, and having RoyalKevin gain a crapton of EXP. from an Audino...*
    RoyalKevin is evolving!
    :D
    RoyalKevin evolved into Swadloon!
    OK, time to train WWarrior, so he doesn't die. I would have used him as an HM slave, but half my team died on Lenora.
    *WWarrior OHKOs a Pansear 3 levels higher with a crit Bubblebeam*
    Wow.

    Yay
    Lenora: You got it back! Here's a Moon Stone.
    Thanks?...

    OK, here comes Skyarrow Bridge!

    O hey Burgh. Team Plasmaderp causing trouble? SOUNDS LIKE MY KINDA JOB.
    But first...more exploration!
    Dancer: If you can get my buddies together, that would be nice.
    Sure!
    *finds one down a dark alley, another on a pier*
    I get a...AMULET COIN. ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS?

    Alright, time to take down Team Plasderp.

    Bianca: THEY STOLE MY POKEMON!

    *Plasma Grunt shows up, runs off*

    ...oh well.
    *RoyalKevin beats the living fuck out of the Plasderp Grunt*

    Team Plasbad? Nah, I like Plasderp better.

    Blah blah blah.
    Bianca gets her precious Munna back, Castelia Gym is now open!
    OK then...

    Seriously?
    Last Harlequin has...lv. 21 Sewaddle.
    lol

    vs. Burgh:
    I send out Orcinus, he sends out Whirlipede. Ember proceeds to 2HKO. Then he sends out Dwebble, and I switch to WWarrior. WWarrrior proceeds to 2HKO with Bubblebeam (and grow to lv. 23), while Pignite comes back in, to OHKO Leavanny with Flame Charge.

    Clay: Krokorok, Bulldoze!

    ...idiot
    *it gets rid of the web*
    Yes, but not of the Galvantula.
    IDIOT
    ...Ahem.

    *enter Chargestone Cave, and the Shadow Triad teleport in and escort me 5 steps to N*
    lol
    N: *says stuff and runs off*
    NO YOU COWARD GET THE FUCK BACK HERE
    ...maybe not

    Bianca: Wait!
    WHAT IS IT THIS TIME
    Professor Juniper: Blah blah blah TAKE THIS LUCKY EGG
    OMG YES
    *equip to Orcinus*
    Let's see how fast this thing evolves!
    *battle music*
    Could this be a Joltik?
    *LOLNOPE, KLINK*
    CMFP the Klink caught and boxed.
    Let's see...
    *Orcinus OHKOs his way through the cave, barring a few Boldores here and there*
    Hmm...
    *Midway through B1F...*
    What? Orcinus is evolving!
    :O
    ...Orcinus evolved into Emboar!
    Yay.
    *switches in Texas*
    Scientist (soandso) sent out Klink!
    *switch to Lou*
    Scientist used an X-Defend!
    *Hi Jump Kick OHKOs*
    lol
    *back down to B2F*
    *Texas tears shit apart*
    I actually feel sorry for the in-game trainers. NOT.
    N: Hi!
    Dude stop creeping me.
    N: How about a battle?
    Sure why the fuck not?
    *Lou 2HKOs Boldore*
    *Texas OHKOs Joltik*
    *Lou OHKOs Ferroseed*
    *Lou OHKOs Klink*
    lolfail

    *enters Mistralton City*
    OK, I think Orcinus wants Hammer Arm and not Arm Thrust...
    *pays a Heart Scale*
    Random guy: Oh heeeeeey!
    AAAAAAAAAAAAAH STOP CREEPING ME
    ...Oh you're Juniper's dad. Nice to meet you?
    *picks up TM58 Sky Drop, the most useless TM in Unova*
    *picks up some items, as well as TM11 Sunny Day
    That'll be useful for Litwick.
    *goes to Route 7*
    *Texas OHKOs a lv. 31 Simisear*
    lol
    *skirts the Route to get to the Doubles Grass*
    Wild Zebstrika appeared!
    9.9
    *Dogfish the Zebstrika caught and boxed*
    OK then...
    *goes into Celestial Tower*
    *catches Zarator the Litwick*
    My team is now complete.
    *backtracks, then goes back through the Route, but with Zarator holding EXP. Share*
    Oh wait, TMs.
    *teaches X-Scissor to RoyalKevin, Solarbeam and Sunny Day to Zarator*
    *Random Emolga haxes me out with Double Team, but, in conjunction with about 12 Moomoo Milks, WWarrior stalls it to death with the Hail*
    PHEW
    *rest of the trainers are weaksauce*
    Ranger after defeat: "I did my best. I do not have regrets."
    Is this one of those Nugget Bridge guys?

    ...Celestial Tower. Time for me to actually explore it.
    *WWarrior proceeds to solo it*
    lol
    During my exploration:
    I find:
    -Worthless Revive
    -Hyper Potion
    -TM61 Will-O-Wisp
    -TM65 Shadow Claw
    TEXAS EVOLVED INTO ARCHEOPS
    Yeah that was boring.

    Skyla: There was a weak Pokemon. I gave it a Max Revive.
    How kind of you.
    Skyla: Why don't you ring the bell?
    Why the fuck not?
    *Skyla goes back to the Gym*
    Now I can challenge it!

    ...
    *WWarrior grew to lv. 36!*
    :O
    WWarrior evolved into Seismitoad!
    Not weaksauce anymore!
    *Texas sweeps the rest of the Gym*
    EASY

    VS. Skyla:
    I lead with Texas, she leads with Swoobat. Crunch is an OHKO. Then Swanna comes out. Acrobatics is a 2HKO, but all she does it Aqua Ring. Unfeazent is then OHKOed by said Acrobatics.

    Chapter 7: World of H2O (open)
    OK so where was I?

    ...

    Go to Twist Mountain, and BOOM CHEREN.
    Oh hi.

    VS Cheren:
    I lead with Lou, he leads with Unfezant. Switch to Texas as he charges up Razor Wind. Texas OHKOs with Rock Tomb. He sends out Liepard, I send out Lou again. Lou OHKOs with Brick Break. Simisear comes out, only to get taken out by WWarrior's Scald. Dewott then comes out, and gets taken out by a Texas Acrobatics.

    That was easy.

    Alder: JUMPS OFF CLIFF

    I wish I could do that.

    Alder: Blah blah blah here's HM03 Surf!

    Oh nice.

    *teaches to WWarrior, proceeds to explore*

    Aaand now back to Twist Mountain!

    *exits, world of SNOW*

    Well at least snow is better than water. Wait, it is water. Well I'm thinking that I like the solid form better than the liquid form. You can walk on it!

    *an hour of exploration, helped by Marriland*

    OK I'm finally into Iccirus City!
    *sliding ice*
    OK maybe not when it's COMPLETELY frozen. Gah I hate walking on ice.

    *goes to the north, catches Kaxtar the Mienfoo in Doubles Grass*

    Yeah I have two Fighting-types. PASS.

    Iccirus gym:
    Oh god another sliding ice puzzle. Kill me.

    *Orcinus beats the shit out of the trainers*

    Maybe not.

    VS. Brycen:
    I lead with Zarator, he leads with Vanillish. Flame Burst->OHKO. I switch to Orcinus, he switches to Cryogonal. Heat Crash->OHKO. I switch back in Zarator, Beartic comes in. Flame Burst->OHKO.

    That was easy.

    Update 3 of my Fire Red Nuzlocke is ready

    Lavander Town through Gym 5 (open)

    -Went into the Pokemon Tower and used the Channlers their to level up Hokus some more. Captured Grim the Ghastley, next Pokemon that appeared was a Cubone -_-. Damn it.
    -Freed Marowak from its eternal torment by beating it up (a bit sacreligious if you ask me)
    -Proceeded to to defeat Team Rocket and save Mr. Fuji
    -Got the Pokemon Flute
    -Flew to Celadon, bought some Brick Break TMs, then went to Route 16. After a slightly difficult battle I captured Baloo the Snorlax. And better yet, he has a Brave Nature!
    -Went back to Celadon, spent all my money trying to get Shadow Ball, ran out of money, taught Baloo Brick Break, left for the Route 17 (Aka the Cycling Road).
    -Hokus gained more EXP. Yay, he's becoming overlevelled -_-.
    -Captured No Worries the Doduo, but it had a shitty nature so it got boxed.
    -Entered Fuchsia City, healed my team, and went to the Safari Zone.
    -Captured Darius the Nidoran(M), unfortunately he was low levelled so he got boxed too.
    -Found the Gold Teeth and got the HM Surf.
    -Forgot to give the teeth back, and instead went into the gym.
    -Anyone else notice that Koga's Gym is more Psychic than Poison? Either way, Chobani and Gotlegs? got more experience.
    -A grossly underlevelled Hokus soloed Koga, OHKOing is entire team. (Though that level 43 Weezing scared the shit out of me)
    -Left the gym, healed, saved.


    The Team (open)

    [​IMG]
    Chobani the Quiet Venasaur (M)
    Level 34
    Ability: Overgrow
    Moves: Tackle, Razor Leaf, Sleep Powder, Leech Seed
    Opinion: The clear Team Leader, Chobani has been with me from the beginning. While his usefulness now is running low due to the upcoming major battles and the joining of Hokus, he still gives my team the bulk and backbone it needs. If a foe is a heavy hitter who do I call? Chobani. If I need health restored who do I call? Chobani. Chobani has all the tools he needs to keep himself and my team alive, and if he were to die I would be screwed.

    [​IMG]
    Ruffrabble the Docile Fearrow (M)
    Level 30
    Ability: Keen Eye
    Moves: Peck, Pursuit, Fly, Fury Attack
    Opinion: Ruffrabble is basically done for the game. He isn't really worth training anymore, and the only reason I still have him is because I needed a Fly Slave. It's been a good run Ruffrabble, at least you are living to see the box.

    [​IMG]
    Gotlegs? the Serious Dugtrio (M)
    Level 34
    Ability: Sand Veil
    Moves: Cut, Rock Slide, Magnitude, Dig
    Opinion: Got some milleage this chapter, but unfortunately for Gotlegs? Hokus is just really taking the team by storm. At least there aren't too many fights where Hokus can clean sweep anymore, so this guy will get some use again. All he needs is Earthquake and he will be set.

    [​IMG]
    Hokus the Hardy Kadabra (M)
    Level 37
    Ability: Inner Focus
    Moves: Reflect, Recover, Psybeam, Psychic
    Opinion: Same as last chapter. Best STAB, great moves, yadah yadah yadah, MVP, blah blah, great Pokemon on the team. Is seriously gonna be overlevelled by the end of the game.

    [​IMG]
    Baloo the Brave Snorlax (M)
    Level 33
    Ability: Immunity
    Moves: Body Slam, Rest, Brick Break, Yawn
    Opinion: Slow, Bulky, and Strong as hell, Baloo is kinda akin to Chobani, in that both give my team bulk and back bone. He will be a godsend against Sabrina thanks to his massive Special Defense, and once I get Shadow Ball he will be awesome. His ability had me down for a bit, but it has actually saved him several times. And his nature is just brilliant. Here's to the future Baloo, nice having ya.

    [​IMG]Darius the Lonely Nidoran (M); Level 24


    The Dead (open)

    None =D


    State of the Union (open)

    Pretty much the same as last time, just even more so. My team is solid, despite being underlevelled, and I have great reserves in case on suffers and unfortunate death. I am probably gonna get a Lapras and an electric type for the final 2 slots on my team, and then call it a day. Overall I am pleased, and I think I might even be able to get through this Nuzlocke without a single death. Wish me luck!

    Hate life, a Destiny Bond Ghastly killed my Lapras. So now I have 2 options: evolve Eevee into a Vaporeon OR trade my Poliwag (after I grind it to Poliwhirl) for a Jynx.

    Pros to Vaporeon: Better defensive typing, better bulk, can be my Surf Slave (instead of relying on Snorlax), good against my rival in the final battles, doesnt involve any grinding to get (unlike Poliwhirl), less reliant on difficult to acquire TM's
    Cons: Not as great offensive typing (especially verse Lance), slower, not as useful against Lance & Agatha

    Pros of Jynx: Faster, Very good ingame offensive typing, good against Bruno, Agatha, Lance, & my Rival, increased EXP gain, sleep move, has a water move in Water Pulse
    Cons: Extremely frail, needs a few harder to get TM's to be used to maximum potential, requires SNorlax to become Surf Slave

    What do you guys think?

    Go for Jynx - in my FireRed Nuzlocke she wrecked (and was able to sweep Lance and my Rival at the end). Plus, Snorlax can actually benefit from Surf, too.

    IMO, DEMo, Jynx, as Psychic in FR/LG is only resisted by the Mags, and Ice destroys as well. Could even use Ice Punch if you don't want to waste Ice Beam, but yeah, Jynx all the way.

    Not sure how many people remember this, but I just wish to let everyone know that I stand at the point of No Return!! I stand at the entrance of the Elite Four. I will soon enter and take no quarter, nor will I expect any. This is the land of HAX and losses.

    The ones who have died, but will never be forgotten:
    Glacier the Crustle (open)

    [​IMG]
    Glacier the Crustle was one of my biggest losses in this run. He allowed me to beat so many Gyms, that it wasn't even funny. He was killed in battle against a Wobbufett. R.I.P., my old friend.

    Lv13 - Lv38

    Comp the Rhyhorn (open)

    [​IMG]
    After the loss of Glacier, I looked towards Comp as a replacement Rock Type. Sadly, he was OHKO'd during training when a Gardivoir used Magical Leaf. R.I.P., Comp.

    Lv22 - Lv29

    Texas the Escavalier (open)

    [​IMG]
    Oh, Texas, you had so much power and potential. It is sad that such a deadly tank like you had to leave me forever. I curse that Giratina and the Destiny Bond that took you as you struck the final blow. R.I.P., Texas.

    Lv22 - Lv41

    Puddle the Zoroark (open)

    [​IMG]
    Puddle, I didn't think you could replace Texas, but I had hope. I am ashamed to say that I didn't switch you out vs a Sawsbuck. That Crit Horn Leech OHKO was sadening. R.I.P., Puddle.

    Lv24 - Lv28





    Though I have lost many, I still carried on. I am now at the foot of victory. Today, the Elite Four, N, and his Father, shall fall!! I don't know who I will lose, if any, but their sacrafices shall not be in vain!!

    Wish me luck, my fellow Smogonites!!

    Was working on getting a Jynx like you said... and then Poliwag dies during training!!! And I cant capture one on any other route. So now I am working on Vaporeon... and it fainted too!!! Luckily I managed to capture a Shellder and I have a chance at catching a Seel, any suggestions on which to use?

    Also, since I've done a bunch in the game, I'm just gonna post this update (even though I havent beaten a gym yet).

    The First Losses (open)

    -After defeating Koga I finally decided to get my team up to adequate standards in terms of levels.
    -Went to route 14, trained, and captured Soucanmew? the Mild Ditto, who was boxed immediately.
    -Flew out to the Power Plant, hoping to catch an Electabuzz, and praying that a Magnemite would not appear, I ended up finding a Pikachu. Captured Samus the Modest Pikachu. A new team member and a great Pokemon to use against my rival
    -Went to Celadon, finished getting Shadow Ball, got a Thunder Stone, and evolved Samus into Raichu.
    -Finished grinding Samus up to par.
    -After a bit my team was up to snuff, so I decided to go to Saffron City and defeat the fighting Dojo.
    -Again, Hokus raped, and somehow I accidently picked Hitmonchan instead of Hitmonlee =/. Oh well, The un-nicknamed Bold Hitmonchan was immediately boxed.
    -Went into the Silph Co. Building and systematically eliminated all the grunts.
    -After clearing all floors of immediately accessable grunts, I got the card key and ko'd all the ones that could be defeated from behind doors.
    -Found my rival and easily defeated him. Recieved Lapdance the Mild Lapras. With that my team was complete.
    -Easily defeated Giovanni, and surprisingly Lapdance did quite a bit. Recieved the Master Ball
    -Left Silph, healed, and entered the Gym. Was grinding Lapdance when a Ghastly used Destiny Bond as I Surfed for the KO. R.I.P. Lapdance, you had such potential.
    -Left the gym, and after a series of failures where I captured Fuckme the Quiet Seaking and acquired Loophole the Naughty Magikarp (fitting nature), I finally got Heretakeit the Relaxed Poliwag. It needed to be evolved, but it was only 6 levels, so I thought I could pull through and get a Jynx.
    -Nope, since I didnt have the EXP. Share I had to train Heretakeit the enter and switch out method... a Fearrow hit me with Pursuit... R.I.P. Heretakeit. And with you goes my last hope of getting a Jynx.
    -Disheartened I withdrew Layla the Eevee from my Reserves and evolved it into a Vaporeon.
    -As for precationary purposes, I wanted to catch a Shellder... But Vermillion City was evil to me and I ended up getting Bisquick the Careful Horsea. So then I went to Cinabar Island where I finally caught Rassberry the Hasty (meh) Shellder.
    -ANOTHER TRAINING ACCIDENT!! Layla took the brunt of a Weezings Selfdestruct during training. God, this game just wont let me have a water type. Those were 3 of my potentially best Pokemon, all gone.
    -Rassberry Joins the team... he has a long way to go...


    The Team (open)

    [​IMG]
    Chobani the Quiet Venasaur (M)
    Level 40
    Ability: Overgrow
    Moves: Tackle, Razor Leaf, Sleep Powder, Leech Seed
    Opinion: He is really the same as last update... just stronger. Still the Team Leader, but has really been hanging out in the background as the other members of my team have really been dominating. But still, he is great to have and I still wouldnt be able to progress without him.

    [​IMG]
    Gotlegs? the Serious Dugtrio (M)
    Level 40
    Ability: Sand Veil
    Moves: Cut, Rock Slide, Slash, Dig
    Opinion: Just like Chobani, this guy hasnt really been seeing a whole lot of action. He didn't even partake in the battle against Giovanni. Still strong and reliable, he really just needs Earthquake. But still, overall he is just kinda on the backburner for now.

    [​IMG]
    Hokus the Hardy Kadabra (M)
    Level 41
    Ability: Inner Focus
    Moves: Reflect, Recover, Psybeam, Psychic
    Opinion: Same as last chapter. But with Baloo in the mix, his MVP status may be disputed. But still, he has the Best STAB, and the movepool to pull it off. All he needs is evolution-- which I am just too lazy to do right now.

    [​IMG]
    Baloo the Brave Snorlax (M)
    Level 41
    Ability: Immunity
    Moves: Body Slam, Rest, Brick Break, Shadow Ball
    Opinion: A really fantastic member to have. Amazing coverage, great bulk and power, and a great nature. He is definitely in contention for MVP, and will probably solo Sabrina. Just gotta keep him alive until then.

    [​IMG]
    Samus the Modest Raichu (F)
    Level 40
    Abiltiy: Static
    Moves: Thunderbolt, Strength, Brick Break, Double Team
    Opinion: The only girl on the team, she isnt awful, but she isnt great either. She is frail, and isnt as fast or packing the STABs like the other frail members of the team do. But still, she can easily take care of half my rivals team, and will be of great help against Loreli. Looking forward to using her more, as she is fun to battle with.

    [​IMG]
    Rassberry the Hasty Shellder (M)
    Level 19
    Ability: Shell Armor
    Moves: Icicle Spear, Tackle, Withdraw, Supersonic
    Opinion: LVP simply because it is weak. Also, unlike the other members of the team, I really dont want Rassberry here. He was brought out as I really had no other alternatives and needed the Ice/Water Coverage. Hope he lives long enough to change that, as all my water types seem to die quickly.

    The Dead (open)

    [​IMG]
    Lapdance the Mild Lapras (F)
    Levels 25-27
    Final Words: A great Pokemon who instantly pulled her wieght. I wish I could have done better, farewell my friend.

    [​IMG]
    Heretakeit the Relaxed Poliwag (F)
    Levels 19-23
    Final Words: I really should put a picture of Jynx here, because that is what died, not his unfortunate Pokemon. I never liked her (as evidence by the name), but oh well, good bye.

    [​IMG]
    Layla the Quirky Vaporeon
    Levels 25-27
    Final Words: The exact same case as Lapdance. She was a Pokemon full of unrealized potential. I am sorry I failed you, take care my dear friend.


    State of the Union (open)

    While technically it is the same as last time, I really wanted that Lapras/Vaporeon/Jynx. It would have made so many battles that much easier. Now I have to rely on a crappy natured Shellder. But the other 5 members of the team look strong and powerful, so not all hope is lost. Wish me luck that I will finally fill my 6th team slot and win this thing!

    Use Shellder, Cloyster is a much better Pokèmon than Dewgong.

    Ouch, sorry to hear that. Hope you beat the game, and that utterly sucks.
