    TUO's Pokemon Red Challenge Run



    [​IMG]

    Hey guys! I'm gonna fill the Orange Islands (along with everyone else) with all the Pokemon LP's that have started to come about. However, rather than doing a randomizer or a Nuzlocke, I will set a set of rules for myself to play while giving myself a preset team that I will have to catch and use throughout the run.

    The Challenge


    1. I can not use my starter with the exception of being an efficient HM Slave.
    2. Intense amounts of grinding will make this game not as challenging as I want it to be. This means I can't gain more than 3 levels on one route (in total, not per Pokemon) by fighting Wild Pokemon.
    3. No abusing serious bugs of any kind (there are a LOT of them)
    4. All of these rules only apply after Brock is defeated. This is the only time the true challenge starts.

    As said I will give myself a preset team. The idea was to make myself intentionally dumb with this as the title said, this means that I handpicked the some of the most inefficient Pokemon to use in a playthrough while maintaining type balance and getting each of these Pokemon at different times in the game, without further ado, I present to you the team:

    The F-Team

    Oh yeah one more note, I will be playing this on Super Game Boy just so the screenshots look nicer.

    With all of that, let's get into the start of the LP. I just wanna note that if you have any recommendations on stuff I can improve on (how many photos I put of a specific event, if I should skip stuff, etc.) just note it over here.

    ____________________________________

    As this starts, I am greeted by Professor Oak, I learn about these creatures called Pokemon. No matter how much of his research he can tell me, I will always pick the shitty ones.

    My name you ask? You may call me "TUO"

    I also have a rival that I will have to constantly fight on my journey towards being the champion of crap teams. uh, what was his name again?

    [​IMG]

    Named after the user here (or the Driver on PS, idk how you might know him). This is because he always has a better team than me (at least in Ubers).

    As I now warp down into the world of Pokemon, I go to Prof. Oak's lab and get to pick my first Pokemon! Sadly, they are all good stuff so the only reason I need to pick carefully is to manipulate my rival's choice. What did I pick? And most importantly, what did I nickname my starter? Well, you can watch this along the way or scroll down quickly just to find out if you suck.

    Oh Sweep challenges me to a battle, time to reveal my starter!

    Alright then, I picked up WeakZubat the Squirtle, as I will make sure that this guy is weaker than my Zubat. Bulbasaur and Venusaur also match poorly against Golbat and Beedrill, so we have something good going.

    Right away, I beat Sweep unlike how our Ubers matches go and I gain a useless level up with WeakZubat

    See ya buddy.




    So that's the first part, tell me how ya like it and what I can do to make it better. Also, should I make an installment to beating Brock, or should I just set up my 2nd part when the challenge truly starts?
