To make up for my horrid laziness, would you guys want me to post a nuzlocke newsletter of sorts?
With tips, advice, featured, runs and maybe comics?
What are your thoughts on this?

Presenting....

Nuzlocke Newsletter

The nuzlocke newsletter is a series of articles, tips and other things revolving around the nuzlocke challenge that comes around every once in a while.
Bro of the Week
This week's Bro is none other than the Fabulous Gastrodon!

Gastrodon is a Water/Ground type Pokemon that evolves from Shellos at Lv. 30 and is found primarily in the Sinnoh Region. Shellos can be found on Route 205, Route 218, the Valley Windworks and Fuego Ironworks. Gastrodon can be found on Route 213, Route 222, and at the Fuego Ironworks. Gastrodon's High HP and decent defenses, as well as its type combo, makes it a good staller. It has a base special attack of 92, enough to deliver a powerful surf attack or blast those pesky grass types with a sludge bomb. Its quite handy to have around as it can learn HMs 03(Surf), 04(Strength), 05 (Whirlpool), 06(Rock Smash), 07(Waterfall). It's main weakness is its speed, a base 39, but with its typing, stat spread and overall usefullness, Gastrodon is a true bro to have.


Glass Cannons, a 'How to use' guide:
For those who don’t know, ‘Glass Cannons’ are Pokemon with tremendous attacking capability, but frail defenses. Porygon-Z, Alakazam, and Rampardos would be perfect examples of these. The goal when using glass cannons, is to knock out your opponent before he knocks out you, thus Speed is as vital to Glass Cannons as Attack/Special Attack. These Pokemon, when used correctly have the potential to sweep entire enemy squads, giving you a decisive victory. Of course, since this is a nuzlocke run, surviving is a huge problem to these powerful Pokémon. The first thing to look for in a glass cannon is its nature, which, as most of you know, determines which stats are higher/lower than the others. If the Pokémon’s nature boosts its speed, or whatever stat it deals damage with (Atk or SPatk) and lowers an unneeded stat like the opposite attacking stat or a defensive stat, then by all means, go for it, your Pokemon has a great nature. If your Pokémon’s nature does something like decreasing speed and raising special defense, then don’t bother, as your nature hinders your Pokemon too much. The next step in turning a glass Cannon into a killing machine is to equip it with a powerful move set. The Pokémon’s moves should all deal over 70 base damage and cover at least 4 types, giving it diversity and power, Porygon-Z is one Pokémon that is exceptional at this. The next step is to give your Pokémon an item that will enhance its abilities, the choice specs are a popular option, especially against a type specialist that one of your Pokémon’s moves can exploit. Although this is not competitive, EV training can help as well, especially if you want to increase your Pokémon’s speed or defenses. That’s all for now, good luck training your “Glass Cannon” Pokémon, and keeping them alive.

Featured Run:
In this run's newsletter, I have decided to feature "Locke's Emerald Hard Mode" a comic run by Neopolis. The comic features simple, but sweet art, humorous jokes and puns, twists and turns in the plot, and an amazing cast of characters that will have you begging for more. Below are some panels chosen at random from his comics:
If these interest you and you would like to read Neopolis's comic, you can do so
Here
Credit to Bulbapedia for some of the info on Shellos and Gastrodon, and a big thanks to Neopolis for allowing me to feature his run, until next time, nuzlockers!


To the Readers

So, what did you think of the first ever nuzlocke newsletter? Any complaints or ideas on how to improve it? Well I'm open to any criticism, because this is for you guys, and I only aim to make it better.
If you want to contribute to the newsletter or have your run featured please VM me for more details.

Any body want to do a Sabatoge Run with me?

The Rules:
1. You can only the first pokemon per route.
2. If a pokemon faints, IT DIES.
3. Dead pokemon must be released, not boxed.
4. After every gym battle (successful or not), you cannot continue until your opponent chooses a pokemon that MUST DIE.
5. This pokemon must be released IMMEDIATELY.
6. Your opponent cannot choose your starter. ANYTHING ELSE IS FAIR GAME.
7. If all of your pokemon faint, YOU LOSE.
8. If you cannot continue your run do to a lack of hm, YOU LOSE.
9. If you only have one pokemon left after a gym, TOO ****ING BAD.
10. Winner is decided by who has the most pokemon at then end of the run (if the run is completed).
11. Oh yeah, and have fun!

The Games I could play are:Emerald,LeafGreen,FireRd,Ruby,Gold,Yellow, and Diamond

You guys choose which one I play, to make it harder for me.(And my starter if you guys want)

I have some questions regarding Nuzlockeing in Black and White.

1. How do we count shaking grass? Is it counted as a separate encounter type, like fishing? Is it counted as a normal grass encounter?

1a. If it's counted as normal grass, is it considered ethical to purposely go into shaking grass for the purpose of a higher chance at a certain Pokemon? If not, would Pokemon such as Emonga/Kenhourou be illegal caught in the wild since they ONLY appear in shaking grass?

2. What about the Dream World? What's considered the first Pokemon there? First on each route? (Forest, Ocean, Sky, etc) First per day?

1.Shaking Grass is has no exeptions to normal grass its still 1 Capture per Route. Like in Yagamuru Forest (the one next to Aloe's City) I may not catch a Dokkora on Normal Grass and a Nageki in the Shaking Grass. Same thing for Bridge Shadows,Swirling Dust and Surfing Spots.

2.I would do One per Dreeam World as a Whole but One Per Route sounds fine to.

Regarding my previous post,I added White to because I forgot I had it.

EDIT: Ok Daimond + Chimpy then :D
I'll see you at the Next gym R. Sasuke ;D

Well last time I posted I was hoping for nothing stupid right?

Anyway I started surfing to Victory Road, and encountered a Tentacruel.

I thought no big deal and sent out Ice Age and thought "Hey free level up" but it got a crit with Poison Jab and killed off Ice Age.

No more than 30 minutes later I encounter a Golbat, and thought "Hey free level up." I sent out Raid, and it uses Air Cutter. Low and behold another crit, and Raid faints. I was thinking I was doomed at this point since I had only 2 trained pokemon for the Elite 4.

Well I get to the Poke center defeated my rival quite easily.

Aaron was no difference except his Vespiquen took forever to die.

Bertha like Aaron wasn't hard except for her Hippo.

Next was Flint and he was quite simple nothing to stall with.

Now Lucian just pissed me off I take down his first 3 pokemon no problem. And then there was Alakazam. Fynn was at like 75% HP, and it kills me with Psychic.
After Fynn went down I figured it was over.

Well I beat Lucian and was left to die at Cynthia's hands.

Actually this battle was quite humorous. I looked in my bag for any items that might help me out, I saw a Razor Claw, X Speed, X Attack, X Accuracy, and a Dire Hit. I end up outspeeding all of her Pokemon and critting them all.

Alive: Assault Lvl 15-61

Dead: Leif 2-35
Off Lvl 15-32
Dissonance Lvl 5-45
Rule 34 ?-40
Ice Age Lvl 34-49
Raid Lvl 8-52
Fynn Lvl 1-56

Great job in the Nuzlocke Newsletter, Karpman. There really is nothing I could tell you to improve. Well, it would be nice to add in some tasty CSS, but since [I believe] you have no knowledge of that, I guess you shouldn't bother...

Aha, so that's what a Sabotage run is, chaos. :-D Well, it sounds pretty confusing, but I might still give it a shot. Sometime, when I'm not so busy. :o

Nice job on the newsletter. Actually, after seeing that, I may make my own comic...

I have a quick update on my Sapphire run. Not a full update, I'm too lazy right now to do that. It's really just a little story. No, I didn't lose.

I was on the route to the east of Fortree, and I was really thinking about what to do about Winona. Half my Pokemon were weak to Flying, and the only two that weren't were Earl (my Swellow), and George the Zigzagoon, who was an HM slave. So, essentially I was screwed.
Going across the bridge, Steven comes along and gives me the Devon Scope. I was then forced into battle with a Kecleon. I caught it, and was about to name it Derp 2, as Castform was Derp, when I notcied something - Access to Ice Beam. *Troll face activate* I then named him Joe.
I grinded Kecleon up to a solid level of 33 and entered the gym. Kecleon, with a great SpA boosting nature, proved to be a monster, wiping out every single trainer. Then, there was Winona. Swellow - Crushed by Ice Beam. Pelipper - Was kind of troublesome, but I eventually beat it. Skarmory wasn't too hard, I had taught Shock Wave to Kecleon and that pretty much spelled the end of Skarmory. Then Altaria came in, and since the last move Skarmory used on me was Steel Wing, Earthquake was super effective and killed Kecleon, but not before Kecleon Ice Beamed it, bringing it to half. My only Pokemon that could actually do something to it was Andy. Andy was my only chance, and if he died, it was game over.
I had taught Andy (Who's a Sceptile, if you didn't know) Hidden Power earlier, but didn't even know what type it was. I was hoping for Dragon, Ice, or Rock, and when Andy outsped Altaria and smashed it with a Hidden Power Rock I think, I was very happy. Andy had saved my entire run with that move. However, he couldn't save Kecleon. RIP Joe the Kecleon.

@Chaos1011, I'd be happy to be your sabotage partner, and that trollface.jpg totally made that post XD
@AyameHikaru, The shaking grass is a regular encounter, you can walk into it if you feel you can get something other than a Tabunne, its nothing special really. Also, no dream world.
@rainbowsasuk yep, you can nuzlocke crystal
@560cool, thanks for the compliments and I would kill for some CSS, if anyone is interested in giving the NN some kickass CSS, please contact me
@Zaroas, thanks for the compliments and I'd love to see your comic

Guy, guys, you know what we should do (besides the sabotagelocke (was the original one ever finished by the way, it's been a while since I lurked it), in which I'd be interested as well, but I'm probably too late)?
Well, I've been doing civilization-related things recently, and founds this whole succession game stuff. And I thought "Hell, why not Nuzlocke this?"
So how would that work? Well, the basic idea can even be found on TV Tropes (a fact about that I have, admittedly, not known about before half a minute ago), and...
In General, it would look like this:
1. Assembling players and creating a list
2. Playing the game. I'd say one would play until after the next major boss battles. As such I would count gym leaders, criminal organization leaders and of course the Elite 4.

What would be the benefits of this? Well, first, the players would probably play more carefully than in an individual run. Things would be planned out better. And, most importantly, it would be a fun experience, or at least I think so.

So, would anyone be interested in this (and if yes, what game? As for myself, I'd be interested in playing some crazy hack) or is my idea complete garbage?


As for the newsletter, I like it. Don't know what else to say. I don't like glass cannons though, they've never worked for me before unless I was ridiculously overleveled.

Update 8:

Tragedy strikes... More than once.

After beating Byron, the Palkia side-quest kicked into gear. I followed the Galactics to the various lakes, taking down Candice in Snowpoint Gym in the process. She proved a bit of a breeze in the end, Red Rum taking care of Snover and Abomasnow, Eyrie taking care of Medicham and Venus - my brand new recruit, a Jolly Medicham (female) caught on Route 217 at Lv.36 - taking care of Sneasel. Venus was a great new addition to the team, replacing Java, whose usefulness from now on will likely decline. I gave her Pokerus and spent my remaining Heart Scales giving her Thunder- and Ice-Punch, and went back to Oreburgh Gate to get Brick Break, which I also taught her, along with Drain Punch. Awesome moveset.

I then followed the Galactics back to their base in Veilstone and cleared it out with no real trouble, not even against the many leaders they have in place. Cyrus then left to do something complicated at Spear Pillar, so I followed him to Mount Coronet, with a team of Eyrie, Clipper, Kazza, Venus, Rubble and Arnold, my Bibarel HM slave. The various denizens of Mount Coronet's inner tunnels were being swept aside with few problems, until one Graveler took offense at Eyrie's attempt to OHKO it with Close Combat. It had worked fine on other Gravelers; I guess this one had a Defence-boosting Nature. Either way, it survived Close Combat, Eyrie's Defence took the hit, and then Graveler's Rock Blast critted and Eyrie was down, some 40 levels after I caught him.

This was A Bad Thing. Not only had I lost one of my most reliable and long-serving team members, but he was also the only Pokemon I could think of that I had caught who could learn Fly, and his Intimidate ability was a major part of my Elite-Four-beating plan. But I had to persevere, which I did. When I reached the top of Mount Coronet, Diamond healed my team up - I considered cheating at this point and keeping Eyrie alive, but I did the right thing and didn't use him. Venus took care of Palkia in impressive style, and I escaped Mount Coronet one friend lighter.

The next move was to head East from Pastoria towards Sunyshore. I retrieved Java from the PC and started the trek, taking out the first few Fishermen on the way. Rubble was lagging a few levels behind at this point, so I switched him in against a Sailor's Mantyke while it was in the middle of using Bounce. I could not have planned for what happened next. I will describe it in play-by-play format.

Turn 1 - Switch in Rubble. Mantyke uses Bounce. Barely any damage, but Rubble is Paralyzed. Shouldn't make much difference with any luck - Rubble was slower anyway.

Turn 2 - Mantyke goes first, uses Confuse Ray. Rubble uses Rock Slide - beats confusion, but is fully paralyzed.

Turn 3 - Mantyke uses Water Pulse. It gets a Critical Hit. Rubble goes down.

So just like that, after hours and hours of play without losing a single Pokemon - the last one I lost was Silver, 4 whole Gyms ago - I'd lost my two longest-serving Pokemon in less than an hour. Suddenly the Bug-type Elite Four member wasn't looking so easy. It really just goes to show that even when a Nuzlocke run looks to be going smoothly, disaster is always threatening just around the corner.

I've withdrawn Sponge, my Shellos, from the PC, and I'm looking to build a new team now.

The team:
Spoiler:
Clipper, Male, Brave, Lv.45, likes to thrash about - Aqua Jet, Aerial Ace, Surf, Flash Cannon @ Amulet Coin
Java, Female, Bold, Lv.40, likes to fight - Spark, Shock Wave, Charge, Crunch @ Magnet
Kazza, Male, Quiet, Lv.47, highly curious - Psychic, Shadow Ball, Reflect, Light Screen @ Light Clay
Red Rum, Male, Quiet, Lv.42, often dozes off - Fire Blast, Ember, Megahorn, Poison Jab @ Poison Barb
Venus, Female, Jolly, Lv.49, somewhat vain - Drain Punch, Ice Punch, Thunderpunch, Brick Break @ Big Root
Sponge, Female, Lv.21, Careful, often dozes off - Harden, Water Pulse, Mud Bomb, Hidden Power @ Exp. Share


PC:
Spoiler:

Turbine
Grace
Belle
Apollo
Arnold
Fatima
Ursula
Bullet
Succubus
Blade


Deceased:
Spoiler:
Wendy, Female, can't remember how or when she died...
Amp, Male, Naughty, Lv.4-12, taken out by a lucky Bide, Route 204
Flora, Female, Naive, Lv.13-17, sacrificed to Kadabra's Confusion to win a tough double battle
Silver, Female, Lonely, Lv.13-27, taken out by a wild Geodude's Selfdestruct, Route 214
Eyrie, Male, Sassy, Lv.4-40, taken out by a wild Graveler's critted Rock Blast, Mount Coronet
Rubble, Male, Relaxed, Lv.5-44, taken out by a Sailor's Mantyke's critted Water Pulse, Route 222

I kind of understood, kind of tl'dr'd it, but I'll edit the sign ups into the first post, just shout in the thread if you want to sign up. Anyhow, what if everybody played on ROMs (I'd say Sienna), videotape their boss, fight, then the game host rates each boss fight, on certain criteria, and the winner of each "Round" chooses a pokemon to kill off from the opposing faction, just to make death quicker, and if you black out, you lose. When all members of a faction, die the opposing faction wins. Also, TV tropes? Now this is really turning into the Nuzlocke Forums
Also, Mondays if you have an MSN,can I have it, so we can stay in contact.

Want me to do the 'R.I.P, bro' section of the Nuzlocke News? It's about Pokemon that have fainted in a Nuzlocke, and it is like a 'big sendoff' for them., celebrating all they've done. It could give us some amusement too.

As Sabin walked around with his Piplup PRIDE to get new pokemon, he stumbled across a biddof. Piplup gave a couple of punds and then it was caught. He named this Lisa.

He then went back to his previous root and stumbled upon another bidoof. He decided to catch this one too to interchange between them. Turns out he ran out of luck. He named this one Toothy.

On her first battle, with a wild Bidoof, Lisa struggled. She gave it her all, but that thing was faster and..... poor Lisa. I'll never forget her.

Toothy finished the cretin off though. I decided I'd have to let Pride help Toothy out in training, at least till it was a little stronger, so it wouldnt face the same fate as Lisa.

My Team: [spoiler="Team"]

Pride(Piplup) Lv 10
Toothy(Bidoof) Lv 8

The Dead:[spoiler]

Lisa(Bidoof) Lv 3

That's really terrible, I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope nothing too valuable was lost, and hopefully no-one got hurt.

Want me to do the 'R.I.P, bro' section of the Nuzlocke News? It's about Pokemon that have fainted in a Nuzlocke, and it is like a 'big sendoff' for them., celebrating all they've done. It could give us some amusement too.
That's a good idea. Please make sure my Staraptor Eyrie gets a mention if you do this! He single-handedly beat Gardenia and Maylene, and his Intimidate saved my team on more occasions than I can count, especially from various Gyarados...


RIP Eyrie the Level 40 Sassy Staraptor
Caught at Level 4 on Route 204
Risked his life on more occasions than I can remember, Intimidating foes to save his team mates
Died in Mount Coronet, when a wild Graveler got lucky with Rock Blast

No one got hurt,luckily.

I too once had a Staraptor too.His name was Avian.My first and best freind I have ever captured in a nuzlocke run. He was an early Staravia on Roark so Intimidate was amazing,Gardenia had no business with Avian,Fantina couldn't tocuh him either,then when it was Maylene it was Staraptor time...Crasher Wake died to a Max Power Return,Close Combat on Byron and Candince,Avian solo'd half of Cyrus,the only place he wasn't good at was Volkner but he did grant me the game with a Return on Elektavire.

Aaron was Solo'd,Bertha was fine besides Rhyperior and Gliscor,Infernape was OHKO with Brave Bird,and Alakazam can go to the death and beyond with his low defence,Gallade too while we are at it. And Cynthia,he proved himself that day. Garchomp vs Staraptor.I was at Full HP he was at half.He Dragon Rushed me and I survived at Red."I'm safe"I thought I Brave Bird right after Chomp ( I was slower) I knew I could survive the recoil then switch into my Gyrados for more Intimidate...... Brave Bird crits and takes Garchomp,but at what price?If I KO'd him at half health the Recoil will for sure Kill me.......

It did,I will always remember Avian. Rest In Peace Lvl 3 - lvl 54

I'm stuck. Aloe's Gym Puzzle is so freakin' hard to solve! Also, can I start the 'Ask Dragonite' section? It's where users can PM me questions about Nuzlocke and the Pokemon games, and I'll answer them. Can I do the R.I.P. section too? Karpman, is that O.K?

Chaos, I'm sorry for not only you but everyone the area in which this disaster took place, my prayers will go out to your family as well as the inhabitants of Sao Joao.

Dragonite149, if you actually read my post at the end of the newsletter, you could have seen that you are required to apply to be a part of the newsletter, you can't simply start your own sections without even being a part of the team. The newsletter comes out as a single entity not a bunch of unorginized sections. While I like your ideas, your post showed disregard for everything I outlined in the newsletter. So no, it does not sound good, at all. I don't mean to sound like a jerk, but it shows that you read over my posts which I try to make worth reading.

Aw, poor you chaos. I hope that only your Diamond got hurt and that you're all alright. Are those flash-floods frequent ?

Hey, Karpman. I actually came here to recommend a new bro'. How about Blaziken ? I mean, he tended to be very helpful on my early Hoenn runs (forfeited because of school/laziness...).

Starters are always bros, everyone knows that
The section is to introduce players to useful pokemon that they didn't think were useful that they might have lying around in their box.
