    1. Emboar / Miltank / Kangaskhan / Torterra / Cacturne / Pinsir Easily lost to a Curse Regirock :( Expected it to lose to Swellow or Braviary but no, it lost to a Curse Regirock :(
    2. Gurdurr / Samurott / Regice / Ampharos / Drifblim / Regirock Won because of Lum Samurott setting up in front of switching out Emboar and Toxic-ing Alomomola. Also- RestTalk Regice is a boss.
    3. Gurdurr / Samurott / Regice / Lickilicky / Cradily / Alomomola Licki died because of a misclick, otherwise Alomomola - Regice + another good wall is a great stall core.
    4. Gurdurr / Samurott / Regice / Floatzel / Cradily / Alomomola Heheh 6-0'd a team because of a stubborn Armaldo letting me set up two SDs.
    5. Gurdurr / Samurott / Regice / Floatzel / Cradily / Alomomola Lost Cradily but otherwise cool. Grass and Electric types were a problem because of 3 Water types but Regice managed to beat them all.
    6. Gurdurr / Samurott / Regice / Floatzel / Zangoose / Alomomola Almost lost to someone using the Simi trio.
    7. Altaria / Sawk / Piloswine / Lapras / Zangoose / Camerupt I was extremely weak to Ludicolo and Sawk, but fortunately the opposing Sawk was banded so Zangoose saved the day. Also Specs Altaria and Piloswine are both strong
    8. Golurk / Sawk / Ditto / Golem / Zangoose / Braviary Brav almost swept but a Stone Edge crit destroyed it. (And it was Roosted too...). At least bossZangoose cleaned up. :)
    9. Swellow / Skuntank / Probopass / Cinccino / Zangoose / Serperior Triple normals...:D Lost to a rain team :(
    10. Misdreavus / Wartortle / Amoonguss / Eelektross / Carracosta / Electrode Lost. This team sucks, Wartortle useless, Misdreavus has no recovery (Pain Split sucks), Eelektross is walled by Flareon, Carracosta has no way of removing his burn and well, I was 0-6'd. :(
    11. Articuno / Kadabra / Absol / Gorebyss / Haunter / Ninjask Ninjask is cool, but i had nothing to handle rain teams
    12. Weezing / Armaldo / Exeggutor / Gardevoir / Rotom-Fan / Rapidash Opponent forfeited because Sun boosted Rapidash Flare Blitz OHKOed enemy Armaldo after SR
    13. Weezing / Armaldo / Exeggutor / Gardevoir / Rotom-Fan / Rapidash Although Weezing died, he was great, walling and burning all the opponent's physical attackers like a boss. Also Sunny Day was really disruptive.
    14. Charizard / Armaldo / Exeggutor / Gardevoir / Rotom-Fan / Rapidash Officially made it a sun team. Unfortunately I lost to a Swoobat with Heat Wave :(
    15. Ludicolo / Musharna / Garbodor / Bastiodon / Torkoal / Sawsbuck Early game forfeit, Timid LO Ludicolo Hydro Pump under Rain OHKO'ed +1 Gothorita :)
    16. Ludicolo / Musharna / Garbodor / Bastiodon / Torkoal / Sawsbuck Last game, lost because of SubPunch Golurk.

    New Nuzlocke Challenge. (Will be updating this post accordingly)

    Alt: Real Nuzlocking

    Progress (open)

    Game 1: Rotom-Fan / Exeggutor / Ludicolo / Kadabra / Wartortle / Carracosta (Win: Kadabra's Encore was doing mad work in this battle, and actually got me a free setup (and 6-0) with Ludicolo.)

    Game 2: Rotom-Fan / Exeggutor / Ludicolo / Kadabra / Wartortle / Carracosta (Win: Another 6-0. Exeggutor ravaged through most of the battle alone, but later had to switch out because of Toxic damage racking up so much from a Lickilicky. Ludicolo cleaned up afterwards. Guy claimed me of cheating most of the battle because I was calculating so much.)

    Game 3: Rotom-Fan / Exeggutor / Ludicolo / Kadabra / Wartortle / Carracosta
    (Win: Musharna was incapacitated the entire battle due to me putting it to sleep with Exeggutor early game, which was very crucial. However, an offensive variant of Weezing really caught me off guard, and it ended up taking out my Rotom-S and Wartorle. Still, the battle was cleaned up by Ludicolo.)

    Must say, it's quite entertaining that you are forced to go for the 6-0 everytime you play. Of course it will never happen every time and the Random Number Generator may decide the better or the worse for the new changes that it does generate when you lose a Pokemon. Also, hax and misplays can be a huge deficit for you as they are really magnified and you can never go back from the unfortunate moments that have occurred. Another thing that's really annoying is having to come across a generated team of yours that is really weak to a certain threat. Still, this challenge is awesome and it feels really satisfying when you beat (and possibly 6-0) someone when you know you're using a team that is made up of random Pokemon.

    Another thing that I like about it is also gives you a bit of practice in general. Not only are you forced to make predictions, but you will be able to become exposed to Pokemon that you may otherwise become a bit unfamiliar with, and you will be able to better recognize upon utilizing in and exploiting it when you come across one of your own or facing one. It's a way of playing more, so you'll also be able get used to all of the different situations and react accordingly, that way you can autopilot certain situations where you KNOW a certain play/move will work so you can focus more on successfully maintaining your win conditions. I highly recommend trying this out.

    Team 1: Golurk (Racist Robot), Skuntank (Messi), Regirock (Flo Rida), Khangaskhan (Kubla Khan), Kadabra (Vieuxtemps), Golem (Spandau Ballet)
    Game 1: Against a dual Sun/Rain team with Pidgeot and Seaking.
    RIP Skuntank, died to a Critted Fire Blast. RIP Regirock, died to poor play against a foe Lapras. RIP Golem, used as fodder, yet got lucky with a crit and damaged Lapras before being taken out. RIP Golurk, pretty much foddered. RIP Kanga </3 you were my main man. FUCK YOU Pidgeot. Thank you so much Kadabra for helping me win despite all my poor play.

    Team 2: Braviary (Traffic), Amoonguss (Hellbastard), Charizard (Char-Lizard), Elektross (Science), Kadabra (Vieuxtemps), Camerupt (Piss Off)
    Game 2:Oh god this was awful. I attempted making a sort-of Sunny Day team, with Ammonguss and Camerupt setting the sun up for Zard to abuse and sweep, but either way, bad teambuilding and bad play led for me to be decimated 0-4. New team methinks!

    Team 3:Carracosta, Ampharos, Serperior, Electrode, Lickilicky, Sawk

    1-1

    gonna take a brief break for now (9-1), cos it's about midnight and i want to head to bed. a few things that i wanted to say, though: firstly, articuno was a champion and did amazing until it was crit by a cb absol pursuit (which i guess is fine, since it crit a musharna and saved my butt against it!). speaking of, musharna is one of the hardest hills to climb when you've got a team assembled of random mons. swellow is another, especially if you don't have any form of rock- or steel-type on your team. i've yet to hit some of the mons i'm looking forward to most (notably carracosta, regirock, haunter, alomomola, absol, kangaskhan) but i think i've finally settled myself on the best way to play through these. i started to actually play smart through the last few matches and managed to save a few mons that i would normally have just sacrificed to bring something else in for free. also, bulkier teams seem to do much much better in this sort of challenge, especially if you have something awesome like a wishpasser in lickilicky (RIP bro). or maybe i just got lucky!! also, nothing has gone more than 3-0 with me except potentially gurdurr, if i win my next match with him intact. we'll see :D

    edit: nope got fucked by rotom-s

    Might as well try. Want to get more used to NU.

    I should learn how to read more posts.. (Edited post)

    Alt: GingerliciousV2

    Team:

    #1: Golurk | Weezing | Glaceon | Cinccino | Gurrdurr | Samurott
    I lost this. Was stupid turn 1 losing Golurk at the very beginning. I should start thinking.

    #2: Muk | Golem | Wartortle | Seismitoad | Musharna | Tauros
    I Won. I really should start thinking.. Lost most due to stupidity, though Tauros died due to a miss, where I would have swept the rest. Siesmitoad doing work!

    #3: Seismitoad | Alomomola | Torterra | Sawsbuck | Emboar | Garbodor
    I Won. Opponent DC'd at turn 4. I accept the victory, kind sir.

    #4: Seismitoad | Alomomola | Torterra | Sawsbuck | Emboar | Garbodor
    I Won. Supposedly a Rain team. Surrenderen at turn 8. I accept it, sir.

    #5: Seismitoad | Alomomola | Torterra | Sawsbuck | Emboar | Garbodor (Long streak this run so far!)
    I won. Guy surrenderen upon seeing teams. I accept, again, sir.

    #6: Seismitoad | Alomomola | Torterra | Sawsbuck | Emboar | Garbodor
    I lost. Saddens me. Got swept by a Zangoose. Maybe could've won, but his Mightyena outsped, burned and flinched my Sawsbuck in the second last turn. I must learn how to think.

    #7: Drifblim | Altaria | Rotom-Fan | Cacturne | Floatzel | Miltank (Mixed feelings 'bout this..)
    I Won. I MANAGED TO SAVE ALTARIA AND MILTANK! Got swept by a +2 Speed Boost Combusken, until Altaria survived it. Managed to roost off and kill 4 pokemons with Miltank and Stealth Rocks. There may be a God out there..

    #8: Miltank | Altaria | Gardevoir | Skuntank | Braviary | Pinsir
    I lost. Fair and square. I not familiar enough with NU to win every game.. Skuntank and Regirock on opponent got me down.

    #9: Ludicolo | Exeggutor | Ampharos | Ninjask | Zangoose | Charizard
    I lost. Lost my Banded Ninjask turn 1. Charizard did good, but his Haunter swept me at the end.

    #10: Bastiodon | Armaldo | Articuno | Absol | Misdreavus | Gigalith
    I lost. Managed a little Gigalith sweep in the end. He had two Volt-Switchers and a U-Turner along with an annoying Weezing which hit, what, about all 4 to 5 Will-O-Wisps, while I missed 1 out of 2 on Misdreavus. Complaining ;__;

    I used a scarfed Tauros and discovered that, unless my opponent was using some really weird sets, Retaliate is glitched in PS. Not that that particularly matters.

    Django and DTC are working on optimizing NUzlocke for this month's stats, so if any of you are interested in starting this challenge then I'd recommend waiting a few days for them to finish up. I'm going to leave this thread open for those who have started to continue their challenges if they want, but just keep this in mind (and don't burn yourself out, we're making them easier next time around I promise!).

    Ok, I just started the NUzlocke challenge 30 minutes ago using the NU Dec 2012 stats and I'm really excited! (My alt is andrushka). So, I started out with some good pokes that would make a decent rain team.....

    Analysis
    Show Hide
    1. I lost Ludicolo to a sucker punch after setting up another rain dance, and Lapras took a thunderbolt for the team when everyone was at low health....will miss the Heal Bell support <3

    2. My team...all lost :( The two new additions, Zangoose and Gorebyss, both fell prey to a Sawk's Close Combats, as did Rotom-F. You will be missed, as I was rather looking forward to your toxic orb and shell smash sweeping.... Faithful Samurott was able to take an opposing Seismitoad down to 1% with SD megahorn, but was KOd before Seismitoad's life orb damage took it's toll. Good Games, guys! <3

    3. I'm excited about mah new team! Opponent dc'd on round two when Haunter OHKO'd his Seismitoad with Giga Drain :3 I'll take it! Liepard and Bastiodon cover my defenses with annoying stall and massive def. respectively, ditto can become whoever he wants to give the opposing team a taste of their own medicine, and the remaining three cover special and physical offenses. We'll see how this works out next match! <3

    4. Well, Liepard was able to outstall a toxic orb zangoose with her prankster subs, but that one little victory was not enough to save my team. When it came down to it, my lone Bastiodon got tricked Choice Specs and was forced to try to roar the opponent's Ninjask and Alteria to death with SR damage, but once Altaria was all that's left, she Cotton Guarded and DD'd up and wore him out...a sad day for this NUzlocke challenger....maybe I will have better luck next time <3

    5. Not much to say on this one...just bad playing on my part :(

    6. I did a little better on this one. Lickilicky and Kangaskhan were the only two lost. My opponent rq'd on turn 27 when my Altaria started DD'ing and he couldn't do anything to hurt it with his sucker punch Cacturne. So that's good, kind of...I didn't even have to use Wartortle <3

    7. This was an interesting match. The opponent's Altaria promptly OHKO'd my Seismitoad and Sawsbuck with HP Grass and Draco Meteor respectively, and managed to come in on my Altaria later and KO her as well. Things weren't looking too well, but my lovely grass stallers and Wartortle were somehow able to sleep powder and giga drain their way through the rest of the opponents team. Good Job guys! <3

    8. Opponent's Murkrow got a sub up and proceeded to calm mind and Dark Pulse my team to smithereens. Dammit. Record: 4/4

    9. Again with the losing. I had a CM ChestoRest Drifblim all set up to do damage, and I switched out on a togetic who couldn't harm me...just dumb :/ It all went downhill from there, as my opponent successfully strung up a BP chain with subs and picked off the rest of my team. Kudus, Latino! <3

    10. My favorite match so far! I was left with a lone Cacturne who really did work in the end game! Sub, Seed Bomb, SD with leech seed layed by Jumpluff (R.I.P.) against the mighty Bastiodon...With SR and throwing up a Sub, Cacturne was brought down to 1 hp, but with lefties, and leech seed, he was able to survive long enough to SD Seed Bomb his wasy into history? well whatever, it was a good match.... minus the fact that I lost 5 more pokemon...<3

    11. The opponent quit on turn 8...I don't think he was quite prepared for the butt whoopin I was gonna give him :3

    12. Pretty good battle. I lost Cacturne, which was very sad, but gained a new friend in Skuntank <3 Record: 7/12

    13. This one really hurts. The opponent had SR and spikes out, and sent out a Roar-ing Rioulu. He was faster than my 4 guys which were still alive, and Roar-ed them to death...R.I.P. NUzlocke pokemon! Final Record:7/13

    take the most recent usage statistics, which is december's, and compile a list of pokemon that are over 3.41% in usage. that's basically how it was decided initially when this project was still active.

    we wanted to try to rework some of the stuff with this project before reviving it again, but feel free to try out your own challenge i guess.
