    I just picked up my copy of Ultra Moon today at EB Games. I got the one that came with the steelbook and the store assistant also gave me that double-sided poster.

    First time I actually got some free gifts with a Pokemon game purchase, funnily enough.

    So in the news of playthroughs on the blue side…
    So theDINOsaurus posted the battle against N in her Black Nuzlocke the other day. And unfortunately, she lost her Galvantula and Amoonguss against N’s Zoroark and Carracosta respectively.

    Now she has Ghetsis left. She already beat the game in June, so we’ll find out how she scrapes it out!

    Also, they made an addition to the challenges forum, for normal playthroughs. It’s been pretty dead, but with Ultra releasing, maybe it’ll pick up. I might post my first play there.

    So while I continue to post my Wonderlocke, I'm way ahead in progress in-game. I just did the Aether Paradise stuff on Friday night.

    I will say, Kommo-o's Z-Move looks sick. Hits both foes and all stat boost? Dang! I also like the designs of the player characters. Although everybody is hoping for Move Tutors, I'd hope that'll be a thing too.

    I also noticed that I missed my four year anniversary here. I am a terrible person.

    That is the spirit. Never let a bad Nuzlocke bring you down!

    So I finally made my Wonderlocke thread, so it's time for me to hopefully redeem myself after all that's happened!

    Not only that, but DINO finally got back to posting her Black Nuzlocke after three and a half months. She said in CC that she already beat the game, so we'll see how things went for her soon enough.

    Yeah, I would say what Pokémon they are, but that'd spoil what's to come if I do post it, haha.

    Unfortunately, I tried to Wonder Trade last night and my capture 3DS' internet crapped on me so I had two catches I couldn't send off at the time. Then again this 3DS is six years old so it doesn't surprise me that much.

    I saw your Azurilland posts and you lost two of them against Ilima, who possesses the most overpowered Smeargle in the world (Technician is way too OP at such an early stage when your team doesn't have the defenses to stand up to it) and one that fell in its first battle and failed to shine at all. And then you go on to lose another one to Hala, and you got something terrible for the Ten Carat Hill encounter.

    Anyways, best of luck with both Salazzle and Lurantis!

    I also started a Wonderlocke in Moon. The first island hasn't gone so hot, with four deaths before Hala. But at least I beat Wishiwashi in a pretty anticlimactic fight. For Salazzle, there is a particular type advantage I have, but we'll see if that does me best. I said in CC that I plan to beat Lurantis before I decide on if I'll post it or not.

    So, I know I've been pretty dead here recently (even though I keep meaning to post here more), but I still exist. And things have certainly picked up on Azurilland. In the Challenger's Clan, theDINOsaurus just finished playing through her Black Nuzlocke, and she posted the final outcome in the thread. She's been way behind on that between her final semester in college, and getting a full-time job and all. But she hopes to wrap it all up soon. (Also, if I haven't said, this new username I have because of her.)

    I also suggested in the thread that I feel like I would be remiss to not do something in Sun/Moon, maybe a Wonderlocke. She seemed entertained by the idea of that as well. I did a Blue Mono-Color in Moon back in April/May and haven't touched it since beating it, but after I get the Ultra Beasts I think I'll wipe that and maybe do just that. And now that there's an expanded challenge forum, I might be able to share it here, too.

    It's debatable, but that's because Marriland is an experienced player. Usually the times he racks up a high number of deaths is because of something he didn't expect.

    Really? Because most people I know think otherwise. While I guess I could understand making that claim for Yellow, because of how high level the Gym Leaders are in that game, that's pretty much it (and I guess your rival's Alakazam in the final battle). In the aforementioned one I abandoned, I didn't do so because it was too hard. Quite the opposite, in fact. I didn't have any deaths until after three badges, and as I said, that was with no bag items in battle. You might have seen bits and pieces of the Blue Nuzlocke that Marriland has been doing on stream (he's uploaded them to YouTube), but of what he's posted so far he's about to battle Giovanni and only has two deaths.

    I do admit 1st Gen is definitely difficult to Nuzlocke, probably even harder than Platinum for that matter.

    Maybe I will get to one eventually. I'll admit, I even considered documenting a Nuzlocke in Blue with no healing items and Set mode, but I quit around Fuchsia because it wasn't doing that much for me, and I realized Gen I really isn't that good for Nuzlocking. But we'll see what I end up doing in time. And at least I got to avenge my fallen friends in Victory Road, even if it wasn't in the context of a Nuzlocke. They allowed trade-ins, and so does the Mono-Color thread here, so I couldn't resist trading to get Glaceon.

    And I actually haven't been paying that much attention to Marriland's Sun Nuzlocke, mostly because I haven't had as much time as I'd like.

    I guess that's great that you're doing another Monocolor Challenge. I still would have loved a Nuzlocke/Wedlocke in Sun & Moon from you, especially since that games has some scary branded Nuzlocke Killers.

    And update on Marriland's Sun Nuzlocke - he will take on Team Skull's mansion next episode and still has only lost five Pokemon. It's definitely on track to surpass the Platinum Nuzlocke for the lowest death count of a main Nuzlocke on his channel.

    So I don't know if you've been browsing Azurilland lately (I have been viewing threads here but I haven't been posting as much), but this is a thing with CC now:

    Yeah. I still don't feel like doing Nuzlockes right now though, but this is going on. I just have to post the final fights for both my adventures.
