Nuzlocke - The First Day

I started my adventure, as Cindee the Pokemon trainer. I chose Oshawott as my starter and coined him G-Dragon after the famous K-pop star. That's where everything went downhill. The first pokemon I encounter was a Patrat, whose name is now, Batrat. The next couple first Pokemon encounters WERE ALL PATRATS. I barely made it past the first gym (Work Up almost decimated my Batrat). My faithful duo travelled with me further, looking for a new non-patrat companion. I ran into a Sunkern past route 20. I caught him, but sadly his first battle ended in his death as his meager stats and my poor trainers insight led to a swift death. I ended the night with catching a Magnemite I named Sol in the Virbank Complex. Hopefully the following days will be better for my team. Sol is shaping up to be a great tank while G-Dragon's nature will help him out immensely as he levels up. Not quite sure how Batrat will fit in with my future team, but has been a loyal damage dealer since I've caught him despite his nature. Hopefully he'll grow on me, but I'm dying for a more exotic (female, perhaps?) Pokemon. Sunkist will not have died in vain! Roxie, here we come!

Started with a f Treecko. I guess that's okay. Nicknamed her Jana, she's Rash natured so that's plus Sp. Atk. minus Sp. Def. That will be pretty good for her. I think that's it for tonight.

Team:
f lvl.5, Rash Natured, Moves: Pound, Leer

So I got up to and defeated Flannery in one sitting. Lost my Dustox during the process and was heartbroken for a few days. I'm ready to continue my adventure. I also can't work out how to get pictures off my phone.

Final Part:
Spoiler:

After training Lapras to level 51 I travelled around the islands. I thought Snorlax could defeat a Graveler, but he Explode Critted Snorlax

I didn't want to train another poke, so I let a spot in my team free
I got an egg (yummy)

For a short time Persian replaced Snorlax (fresh caught)

But then I caught a Heracross (YEAH)

And I caught:



After the ruby/sapphire mission I fought Mewtwo

My team after Mewtwo (I trained them after making this pic to level 60)

Rematch against the Elite Four:
Lorelei and Bruno weren't that hard
But Agatha was a pain, because I didn't had any super effective moves against Genger (Exeggcutor is weak to Sludge Bomb and Shadow Ball) I paralysed her Gengars with Jolteon's Thunder Wave, but again my Poke got defeated by a critical



Lance was also quite easy, I just Toxic spammed with Lapras and healed up every second turn.

Heracross bulked up against Gary's Heracross and then he defeated Heracross, Ttar and Exeggcutor. Alakazam got also stalled out by Lapras and Exeggcutor. Against Blastoise I tried my Chlorophyll/SunnyDay/SolarBeam combo, but Blastoise survived and killed Exeggcutor with a Hydro Pump.

No one in my team could stand against a fire attack, so I had to use Charizard against Arcanine. I stalled out the Extremmspeeds and a Iron Tail missed, but after my last Dragon Claw Arcanine still lived and killed Charizard with Overheat.

Half of my team died, but I managed it



All images: http://imgur.com/a/GSTMG

Dead:Dead: Beedrill Lv4-10, Spearow Lv5-18, Diglett Lv21-24, Raticate Lv4-32, Pidgeotto Lv 16-35, Hitmonlee Lv25-41, Gyarados Lv5-50, Snorlax Lv30-51, Jolteon Lv25-61, Charizard Lv5-60, Exeggcutor Lv35-60

Team ranking:
6. Nidoking

He was in my team since nearly the beginning. Till the 5/6 he was nearly always my strongest pokemon. But after that he got weaker, even with EQ. I really liked him, he was like a bro and survived till the end.
5. Exeggcutor - DEAD

I really liked him, but it was a bit risky. Sunny Day also made Fire Attacks stronger and that was a big problem. Pity he died against Blastoise.
4. Lapras

After Gyarados died Lapras replaced him really good. Toxic was really helpful against the Elite 4, but his damage output wasn't that great. Still a very good pokemon.
3. Heracross

My newest team member. I really wanted to get one and I liked him so much. He swept the half of Garys team and that really surprised me. A really nice and strong partner.
2. Charizard - DEAD

My starter and bro since the beginning. He got weak between Bob and Silph Scope but after he became a Charizard he nearly OHKOed everyone who was weak against Fire. For the E4 rematch I learned him Overheat and it was very helpful. I nearly cried when he died against Arcanine
1. Jolteon - DEAD

He was my fastest team member and his Tbolt defeated quite a few pokes. Thunder Wave also was very useful against the E4. But he died against Gengar.
All in all I really enjoyed this Challenge and I have just started my SS Nuzlocke run.

First time challenger! I am excited, nothing can get in my way! Except maybe a Snorlax....

You must nickname all of your Pokemon. (highly recommended)
A black out/white is a "game over," even if there are Pokémon left in the PC.
You may not use/catch legendary Pokémon.

Started out with Kipdum the Mudkip
went up and beat May like the feeble trainer she is
got Pokeballs and went out to catch my first pokemon which was Smoochyena the Poochyena! (Route 101)
Then on Route 103 I found a Wingull dubbed....Gullum! haha I'm terrible on the names....
On route 104 I found a Marill which I've named Pikablue
Pikablue died in his first battle...
Kept running into Poochyenas for the first Pokemon encountered and even though I'm not doing the duplicates rule I don't want to raise two of them so I just KOd them
Caught Skrillex the Whishmur inside Rusturf Tunnel
Fought Roxanne Gulliver wiped out her first two with ease and got a crit on Nosepass but was OHKOd by a Rock Tomb.
Kipdum took charge and avenged our fallen brother in arms
Why are there so many casualties? It truly is a cruel and terrible world out there.
Stay tuned Next time on Pika:Nuzlocke Challenge!

This time on Pika: Nuzlocke Challenge!
Time travel!

Challenged May to a battle after Roxanne.
KOd Smoochyena the Poochyena
Kipdum evolves
Travelled to Dewford and caught a Makuhita dubbed E. Honda
Travelled Blindly to Steven. After so many playthroughs I know the path to not need Flash. If I battled Brawly I woulda lost the challenge already so I'll skip him for now
Went back for Exp. Share will come in handy later when I pick up weak pokemon
Travelled to Slateport where E. Honda was taken out by a Low Kick in the beach to a random sailor
I rage quit and will have E. Honda taken out of my team as soon as possible
I don't really remember where I saved but I think it was after I caught E. Honda and if it was before I just won't catch a Pokemon in the Cave where you find Steven.

Next Time on Pika: Nuzlocke Challenge! Trouble in the Slateport city!

So I started out in the Pokemart of Rustboro city with my E. Honda. He got deposited immediately and I went to Slateport to battle Team Aqua. On the following route I ran into a Wingull but I got a crit so no new pokemon there for me.
I went up to Watson's place and got myself a mach bike. On the route to the right I caught an oddish and spent some time training it. Her name is Onion.
once I was confident that Onion wouldn't die I used it to battle Wally and got a OHKO. She evolves into Gloom.
I challenged Watson's gym where everyone crumbled to my Kipdum. I taught Skrillex Rock Smash and got Strength by letting the lovebirds reunite. I caught a Geodude (dubbed Stoner) on route 111 by using Rock Smash. Left him in the Day Care while I raised Pikabloo, the second Marill I've caught. This one on route 112. I grabbed Stoner from the Daycare and now I'm making my way north towards Flannery. Oh and Pikabloo has evolved into Azumarill

Next time on Pika: Nuzlocke Challenge! Trekking through the Fiery Path!

I'm finishing my quest to nuzlocke every generation. (Until X&Y come out, then I gotta beat that too.)

Team thus far:
Fluffy the Mareep
Clifford the Lillipup
Snivles the Snivy
Luke the Rilou (He's Adamant! Perfection.)
Patty the Patrat

R.I.P:
Nessy the Sewaddle (She was so young... died of a tragic pokeball mix up.)

I'll post a story about my journey when something interesting happens, for now I must challenge the first gym.

Well I'm quite saddened by todays episode...
On Fiery Path I caught a Koffing dubbed NoStankYou if you get the reference you're one cool kid. He had poisoned Stoner and I forgot poison kills outside of battle so...NoStankYou killed Stoner....which is pretty funny if you think about it and understand the reference lol
While I was depositing Stoner in the Death box I healed and grinded to get NoStankYou leveled up.
After Fiery Path I caught a Numel dubbed Nummies but realized soon after that it was still route 112 and I already had Pikabloo from that route so he was released. I was a bit dissapointed because I really wanted to keep it. On the next route I was hoping to run into a Slugma as I wanted a fire type but nope I got the feeble Spinda named Unique Because they pretty much are.
And then on a Ninjaman. He Selfdestructed and took out Pikabloo. I guess it wasn't meant to be this time Azumarill (I'd done a solo challenge with him and he was pretty awesome) For every Koffing I came up against I would just use Skrillex or Kipdum as they were really high leveled and could take the hits. So getting through here took me longer than it should have. Passing Fallarbor town I went to Meteor Falls and caught Krorikins the Zubat. After even more grinding he was decent enough to battle so I went to confront Team Magma in the Falls...only to find out that in Emerald there isn't a battle right there as they get chased out by Aqua....

Next time on Pika: Nuzlocke Challenge! Brawley, Wiped Out!
