Updated Nuzlocke Adventures of Quid VI Much has happened since the last update. I did some grinding and left for Dewford. There, I caught Machiavelli the Makuhita and added him to my team. I also fished up Tariah the Tentacool, who was boxed. I did some grinding, evolving Theodore along the way, and then Challenged the gym. Brawly was ridiculously easy, and was swept by Reagan, though I had to sacrifice my Shroomish in order to get Reagan healed up. Off to Slateport. I proceeded through the Magma museum encounter, the trick master, and nearby trainers, leveling up Machiavelli the whole time. I caught Ellen the Elektrike, but wasn't feeling it, so she was boxed. I caught Rawsberg the Roserade, and battled through the trainers on both sides of Mauville. I also battled the Winstrates with relatively few problems, and did some general grinding, evolving Reagan, Zachariah, and Machiavelli. I decided to head back to Petalburg and fish myself up Minerva the Magikarp, who was promptly given the experience share. I placed Niniag in the daycare, along with Tariah. I decided that Niniag will be mostly useless, but Norman frightens me, and I want that Shedinja to wall him. Tariah is in there as a replacement water type in case Minerva dies. I battled through the gym, and encountered no problems until Wattson. I attempted to weaken his Magnemite and Voltorb without Machiavelli, but nobody could do much damage to Magnemite, not even Zachariah with rock smash, And most of my team was severely weakened. However, my caution proved unfounded, because Machiavelli came in and did work. He swept through all three Pokemon with great ease. So there it is, I am about to proceed towards Flannery and the volcano encounter, but my team composition is unstable, I will likely be switching it around very soon. Also, I am not sure what to do with revives. I believe they cheapen the experience, and this run has been going better than usual, so I don't think I really need to easy-mode it. I'm thinking I'll only use revives if a very large portion of my team is wiped out. More of a team saving device than an individual saving item. The Team: Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide Theodore the Grovyle Lvl 20, Hasty, Male Pursuit/Leer/Absorb/Quick Attack Theodore hasn't been doing too hot. His moves are simply too weak for him to make much of an impact. However, I believe with an improved moveset, he will become much more valuable. Machiaveli the Hariyama Lvl 24, Lax, Male Fake Out/ Vital Throw/Sand-Attack/Arm Thrust Machiavelli is easily my MVP. With 105 HP, 70 attack, and respectable defenses, he can take a huge hit and hit back even harder. Instrumental in defeating Wattson, and I suspect he will be vital to defeating Flannery. Reagan the Kirlia Lvl 20, Bold, Male Growl/Confusion/Double Team/Teleport Reagan is in about the same situation as Theodore, with good stats and a terrible moveset. However, I expect Reagan to be a wonderful Special Attacker later in the game. Hopefully his pathetic defenses won't be too crippling. Zachariah the Linnone Lvl 20, Serious, Male Sand-Attack/Rock Smash/Tail-Whip/Headbutt I am unsure how I feel about Zachariah. He is great right now, with respectable stats and an alright moveset. Headbutt and his speed are wonderful, as are the items he picks up. He has already given me multiple rare candies and revives. We'll have to see, but I suspect his utility will drop later in the game. Minerva the Magikarp Lvl 15, Serious, Female Splash/Tackle The newest member, Minerva will soon evolve into the mighty Gyarados.
