The Randomizer Nuzlocke Challenge
Hiya everybody!
This challenge is a normal Nuzlocke Challenge, only that all the Pokemon in the Wild are Randomized! This allways builds pretty crazy teams, finding lv 7 legendarys and such.

Right now, there are randomizers avalible for Pokemon Emerald and Black/White(credit to Buzz Buzz for finding this one) Red/Blue! (thanks to bctincher15 for this.) and also Heartgold/Soulsilver!

So what you need to get started for playing emerald is:
A Game Boy Advance Emulator.
An Pokemon Emerald GBA ROM file.
The Lastest Java runtime.
A program that can extract Zip Files.
And the Pokemon Emerald Randomizer program downloaded.

this video shows you exactly how to do:

And for Pokemon Black/White or Heartgold/Soulsilver you need an Action replay, or a DS Emulator.
These are the AR codes for making all the pokemon in the wild random (these are for the US versions):

I've never attempted a Nuzlocke before but this one seems a lot of fun. I don't have a clue how far I'll get, I hope I'll get to the end but you never know.
I will probably update sporadically because I'm just going to play whenever I like and not really hurry to finish.

Of course its all right!
Welcome to the challenge everybody!

Vato August 8th, 2012 2:59 PM

Alright, I've only progressed a bit, so, consider this as a Prologue.


Meet our awesome protagonist.

Inside a truck, there's a little guy sleeping, curled up like a ball. Just today it happens to be his tenth birthday, and also the day he finally gets a name. So, what would the name of this young fellow be?

-Dumbuss Maximuss-

Pretty funny, I have to say... but now let's get serious!


Is that even a name? Anyways, Vato is just lying in the floor of the truck, minding his own business, thinking about many things. Among those things, he wonders how different Littleroot Town will be from his hometown in Johto.

And he's also eager to see his father, with whom he hadn't talked since he moved to Petalburgh when he became a leader.

"Oh, crap!" Vato yelled as he suddenly hit the boxes surrounding him. The truck had just stopped.

Why am I here, anyways? She thought, Oh, yes, MOM.

He heard the door of the truck opening, Thank god! he thought, I was starting to suffocate in here!

As he stood up, he took his first steps in Littleroot Town.

And yes, I just began playing...

Snableye August 8th, 2012 3:07 PM

Im really looking forward to read more Vato!

Right now i havent done so much, just went back to Rustburo and got the Exp. Share, and also fished up a Magcargo and parasect from route 115 and petalburg city. Will Probably use them both on my team.

Vato August 8th, 2012 3:53 PM


Chapter I
A whole lot of unnecessary crap later...

Route 101, home to extremely weak Pokemon! This route is short, but also a beautiful sight for those who are passing by. This route is frequently visited by Professor Birch, who does his research about the local Pokemon.

And today is the day Vato will give his firsts steps in this Route, after a boring introduction to Professor Birch's wife and daughter, who are named 'Wife' and 'May', repectively.

"La, la, la, I'm walking without a Pokemon that can protect me in the middle of the tall grass!" Vato was yelling with joy as he extended his arms in the air.

"Help!" a mysterious voice interrupted his joyful stroll.

"Holy crap, what was that?" Vato immediately said. He then went towards a chubby guy with shorts and an unbuttoned labcoat who was apparently being chased by a Zigzagoon.

"Please save me! I can't fight against that devil-ish Pokemon with my three powerful and exotic Pokemon!" He said.

"Wait... what?" Vato asked, resisting the urge to facepalm himself.

"Just take one of these Pokemon, idiot!" The man yelled.

"Wow, okay, jeez!"

Vato approached a bag that was close to the professor, and opened it: inside of it there were three Pokemon.

The first Pokeball contained Brellom.
The second Pokeball contained Glalie.
The third one contained Ampharos.

Vato could hear whispers from deep beneath the capsules. What an odd thing, he thought.

"Pick me, I love you!" Brellom said.

"No, pick me, I love you more" Ampharos said.

"I'll give you cookies!" Brellom added.

"I have Ice-Cream!" Ampharos replied.

"Could you pick either of those morons already?! I'm trying to get some sleep!" said Glalie.

"All right!" Vato yelled after hearing the discussion, "I choose Glalie!"

"What?!" the three Pokemon said in unison.

A red beam of light went from the center of the Pokeball releasing a Glalie.

"Hello, Frosty!" Vato said.

"Who the crap is Frosty" the Glalie replied with a cold voice tone.

A battle soon started, and after Glalie killed Zigzaggon with Bite and Powder Snow, the chubby guy, who was lying in the floor, finally stood up.

"Thanks, I would be dead by now if it wasn't for you!"

"Whatever" both Vato and Glalie said in unison.

"As a sign of my gratitude, I'd like to..." the professor made a pause only to realize that both Vato and Glalie were gone.

"Where are they?" The professor asked, puzzled.

"They just went away." Brellom said.

"Oh yes, that Trainer is also going to keep Glalie."

"Oh, damn!" the Professor said, "I spent three weeks looking for it!"

"Don't worry professor," Ampharos said, "I have Ice-Cream"

There are also Randomizers for Heart Gold and Soul Silver, also in the form of AR Codes. I don't know the codes but have used them in the past and one of the first Pokemon I actually ran into was the Legendary Psychic Pokemon Mew. Before I forget though, the codes for HG/SS don't change the starters.

Snableye August 9th, 2012 6:09 AM

There is now A Randomizer for Red/Blue Too! thanks to bctincher15

I cant really find them when i google serach, but if you, or anyone else for that matter finds the codes. You can PM me the codes and I will put them in the OP.

And thanks to Buzz Buzz once again, there are now codes for Heargold/soulsilver that randomizes wild Pokemon!

Vato August 9th, 2012 2:19 PM


Chapter II
It's just a wild... HOLY CRAP!
Route 103, also known as the route you can't fully explore without Surf.

Vato and Frosty are walking, trying to avoid the tall grass. Frosty told Vato that he can only catch the first Pokemon he sees, and without Pokeballs, he won't be able to catch any Pokemon in the Route in case he spots any.

Vato couldn't help but to ask why. It makes the challenge more fun... Frosty replied with her cold voice tone.

Whatever he meant with the challenge remains currently unknown to Vato.

As he was about to reach the end of the Route, a wild Pokemon popped out. Crap! Vato thought, he then just decided to wait for the Pokemon: it was a Meowth.

"Well, at least it wasn't a Wurmple!" said Vato, "Frosty, Powder Snow!"

Vato turned around and saw Frosty was just lying his back over a tree.

"Frosty! What are you doing?!"

"It's a Meowth, for god's sake, just wait for it to leave!"

"Fine, I'll fight it myself!"

Vato kicked the Meowth right in his face, sending him flying towards a path of grass where Vato lost sight of it.

"Congratulations Vato," said Frosty, "You gained -5 experience points."

"Pretty funny, now come with me!"

"Nah, it won't be worth the effort of getting up."

A huge shadow covered Vato, he turned around, and he found a furious Sceptile staring at him.

"Is he the guy who kicked you?" The Sceptile asked. A Meowth popped out from the grass next to him.

"Yes, he is!" the Meowth said, trying to hold its tears.

"Now that is just interesting." Sceptile replied.

"Er... Frosty?" Vato said with a voice tone that could tell that he was scared.

"I'm busy reading the newspaper." Frosty replied.

"Wait, that doesn't make sense," Vato quickly replied, "You don't have arms!"

Before he could continue, Vato was punched in his stomach by Sceptile, and sent flying away because of the strength of the punch.

"Hey!" Frosty said, dropping the newspaper she was 'holding' upon seeing Vato lying in the grass, "I'm the only one who can do that!" Upon saying this, Frosty unleashed a huge Powder Snow that froze both Meowth and Sceptile. Frosty bit them both, causing their currently frozen bodies to shatter into pieces. Frosty slowly approached Vato, who was sill conscious.

"Thanks." Vato whispered.

"You didn't thought I would let you die that easy, did you?"

"Maybe?" Vato whispered.

"Get up," Frosty said while gently tapping Vato's back with her face, indicating him to stand up, "There's someone waiting for your arrival at the end of this Route."

"Who?" Vato asked after he eventually stood up.

"I won't tell you, it'll ruin the surprise." Frosty said after Vato was fully incorporated over his feet.

Chapter III
So... I heard you like Mudkip
"Yes! Another Pokemon defeated!" Vato exclaimed with joy

"Hooray..." Frosty replied with a very bitter tone

Still in Route 102, Vato and Frosty were both grinding for no reason at all. After a while, they finally decided that it was time to move on.

At the farthest end of the route, someone was waiting for them.

"Vato!" A girl shouted aloud, waving her hands in the air in an attempt to get Vato's attention.

Vato and Frosty approached the weird girl, it was May, the professor's daughter. She was looking for more Pokemon in order to catch them and show them to her dad, just like she does each and every day.

"Hey, Vato, I have an idea!" the girl said with eagerness, "Let's have a battle!"

"Hell yeah!" Vato replied with the same excitement.

"I must warn you, I've been looking far and wide in search for Pokemon, and I've been assembling teams that can defeat each and every kind of Pokemon in the whole world! Now, go Mudkip!"

"Wait, you've got hundreds of Pokemon, and you're only using a Mudkip... Seems legit."

And approximately ten seconds later...

"Oh my god, how could I possibly lose? It's impossible!"


I've been playing sloooooooowly, so yeah, Vato's journey will be a very slow one... For now.

Team: Frosty the Glalie.

BlueShellBeast August 13th, 2012 5:10 PM

Sorry for this taking so long... And the story isn't even caught up to where I am in the game! (I actually have my second badge... I'll get to it eventually!)


Part 1 of BlueSB's Hoenn Adventure!

If I were to ever write a story about my life, then I would most likely start the story just right before I arrived to that small little town called Littleroot. To be more specific, the story would start with me in a moving truck that took me from all the way from my old Hometown, Goldenrod, to the dinky place where nothing happens... At least, that's what I originally thought. You see, I'm kinda a different person than I was from that kid that just moved into Littleroot who knows how many years ago. Time is just a funny thing, I guess.

At any rate, the start of my life changing journey actually started out fairly normal. I mean, I just did little things like check out my new room, set up the clock, and memorized the map of the new region that I would be living in. Luckily, my Gamecube was still in prime condition even with that long distance that it traveled. I mean, what else would I do if I didn't have anything else to do in a small town? Well, I guess in hindsight, I really didn't need to worry about that Gamecube seeing as I didn't quite need it to keep me busy.

Meeting Professor Birch changed my life. It really did, now that I think about it. The one domino that started the chain of events two years ago. I mean, who would have thought that meeting my new neighbors would do that much. Admittedly, I didn't think much of the Professor back then. I mean, would you think highly of someone if your mom sent you on a quest to say hi to a Pokemon Professor, only to find that he wasn't in his house or lab, and then after that seeing that he'd been attacked by a puny Zigzagoon that was out for his blood? Yeah... I didn't think so. Of course, I got a lot out of saving him in the long run, with his own Pokemon, no less.
When he told me to beat up that Zigzagoon for him with one of his Pokemon, I had the choice between a Castform, Manectric, and a Medicham. To be honest with you, choosing out of those three was no contest for me. I had always been a fan of dog-like Pokemon ever since I'd seen my first Houndoor when I was a little kid. They were just always so... cool looking. I picked the Manectric and sent him out. He actually didn't seem that surprised when he immediately saw his owner being attacked, and a few quick tackles startled the Zigzagoon to run away from us and not come back. His name, as the Manectric told me later when there was plenty of time, was Sieg. If I had to describe Sieg in a few words, I would only be able to say that he was quite the Quirky fellow. I mean, he would tackle me for fun at the most unexpected moments, he would howl for no real reason, and sometimes, he would even want to play fetch, but not with just a branch or something reasonable. No, he would want me to throw one of the empty Pokeballs in my bags and have him fetch them. I'm sure that I failed to catch some of the Pokemon that I ran into because he always would chew on all of the Pokeballs, and I'm sure that that has to do something that would stop making them work properly. Ah well, in the end, I think all of those missed Pokemon were worth it. He became my best friend.

Oh yes, it should also be worth mentioning that the Professor offered to give me Sieg as long as I would help him out with his research along by collecting data, and I happily agreed. Of course, he told me a fundamental difference that there was in the Hoenn Laws that weren't anywhere in the Johto or Kanto laws. Apparently, trainers had become so abundant, and Pokemon became so violent that only one catch was allowed per Route. When he made sure that I understood this fact, he registered me as a trainer, and I went along my merry way. What struck me about the region as I traveled along was the vast diversity of Pokemon. Although, I didn't explore for long. I recalled that his daughter May was out in Route 103 and wanted to see me. I dashed out there, and Sieg, who had only trained against one puny Zigzagoon, was pit against her Mudkip once I reached her. Sieg handled it quite nicely, despite not knowing any offensive electric moves. He just paralyzed the Mudkip and proceeded to tackle it to death... Sorry, I apologize for such a horrible expression. The Mudkip just fainted from the blows. It didn't actually die... I don't want to be labeled a Pokemon Killer, here. At any rate, she told me to go back to her father's lab to see the Professor again. Once I got there, he gave me some Pokeballs and a Pokedex. (Sieg instantly grabbed one and chewed on it... Ah well.) Before traveling out to attempt to catch my first Pokemon on Route 103, I ended up spending all of my money on more Pokeballs and Potions. I mean, if I really had only one chance, then I would want to attempt to catch the Pokemon as much as I could, right? I was excited when I ran into my first Pokemon, a Beedrill. I can still recall clearly what that Pokemon had said to me as we were in a stand-off position about to battle each other. "Prove your power to me, young trainer, and I will lend you my power."

The battle was very interesting. I started off the battle by paralyzing the Beedrill and getting it down to low health. I had to chuck 7 pokeballs at it before he actually allowed me to catch him. I also had to heal up Sieg several times, of course. I think, at the end of it, the Beedrill was impressed by my patience and allowed itself to be caught. He informed me right after I managed to catch him that his name was Buzz. I guess that it wasn't apparent at first, but Buzz was still quite young and Naive about the world at the time. I mean, he believed that he would always be alright, even if he only had one move, Fury Attack (Which I have to admit, it is powerful), and he would always be quite childish when it came to some situations. He never was able to see how serious some situations were.
Training was slightly difficult with the powerful Pokemon in the region, but we managed to get the hang of it after awhile. Once we were ready, we proceeded to move onto our next route. Many trainers wanted to battle on this route with their various bug Pokemon. I also used my favorite bug, Buzz, to battle them. The battles went smoothly until I ran into my first wild Pokemon of Route 102. I kinda blew my only chance of catching a Pokemon on that route by allowing it to use Roar. It ran away from me, and that was that.... Ah well.

Soon, I had reached the town of Petalburg City where my father's gym was. You see, although we moved from Johto just now, our dad had been slaving away in Hoenn as a gym leader in order to put money on the table. We got to talk every once in awhile, but I hardly ever saw him. That's why my mom decided to move us. She figured that it would be better for the both of us to live closer to my dad. It was really neat to be able to say hello to him. I entered the gym at that point and talked to him. He suggested that I should go out there and get all of the badges and battle him someday. Just as I was about to agree and dash away, this kid named Wally entered the Gym and asked my dad to help him obtain a Pokemon . My dad asked me if I would be willing to help Wally catch a Pokemon, and I agreed. Oddly enough, he was better at catching Pokemon than I was! Some people have all of the luck. (Oh yes, and I have a sinking suspicion that that Zigzagoon that Dad loaned to Wally was the same one that attacked the Professor... Must be an ongoing joke between two old friends.) I then said my goodbyes to my Dad and went out into Route 104.
On Route 104, I bumped into a female Slowbro. After easily catching her, she told me that her name was Jazz, and that her whole family lived in this small route and that she wanted out. Although Jazz is Naive like Buzz, she is more Naive about love than anything else. Although, that has nothing to do with battling, it is worth noting.

We then journeyed through Petalburg Woods where I stumbled upon a Vulpix. Her name is Cream, and apparently, she was orphaned at a young age due to her parents being viciously being destroyed by other Pokemon in the woods. Despite this, Cream might be the most Relaxed member of the team.

Further into the woods, I was dragged into an interesting event. This worker at Devon Goods was apparently getting attacked by a Team Aqua member, one of the gangs of Hoenn. (And here I thought that Team Rocket was pathetic...) Cream, without me saying anything, leaped out of her Pokeball and burnt the Poocheana. The Aqua member ran away quickly after seeing that display, and the worker thanked me repeatedly. After that, I was on my way to Rustboro. On my way there, I experienced my first Double Battle. It was really a new experience for me. I mean, people never had double battles where I came from. We actually did really well, surprisingly enough. Right when we got to Rustboro, we checked out the Gym just to see what exactly it was all about. The gym seemed to specialize in rock type Pokemon. While I was thinking about how to defeat the gym properly, Jazz informed me that she could learn how to use water gun, if I would just allow her to train for awhile in the Woods back where we came from.

While out training, we happened to run into an interesting sight... Twice. Turns out, the legendary of the skies of Hoenn likes to troll new trainers whenever Mew turns his back. At the most random moments, he would come up and talk to me about how Mew is such a slave driver for forcing him to watch these two orbs of mass destruction for all of time. Poor guy. No wonder he likes to bother random trainers. I would do the same thing, if only to slack off on a stupid job like that. Well, then again, that job is kinda important...

After a full day of training, Jazz finally learned Water Gun. Now, it was time to take on Roxanne...
~To Be Continued~

It's worth to mention, that I was too lazy to include the trainer battles that I did in the gym prior to getting Water Gun. In the double battle using Sieg and Jazz, I would put one Geodude to sleep by using yawn, and while Jazz would spam tackle, I would make Sieg use Leer over and over again. Took a long time, but it worked out after awhile.
