    Pokemon Sapphire Nuzlocke

    Update 2

    -LORAN evolvee to Lombrero on Route 102
    -EDDIE evolved to Beautifly on Route 103 (East Side)
    -BRAWLY solo'd by TED (Lv. 17), Wing Attack spam
    -ABRAHAM evolves to Kadabra on Route 102
    -ZIGGY evolves to Linoone on Route 117
    -WATTSON solo'd by CASEY (Lv. 24), Double Kick spam

    While the update is really short, the gameplay was pretty long. Defeating 700+ wild Pokemon is a feat, even with speeding. And of course, occasional 300+ runs from unwanted Pokemon. At least I got CASEY and LORAN's Speed EVs maxed. I also maxed CASEY's Attack EV. All that's left now is Loran's Sp. Attack EV (Ralts was too rare, so I'm waiting for Numel). I really have no idea why I was doing that, but I'll probably transfer them to Emerald for the Battle Frontier one day.

    Well I hope it's not just me. I always read what everyone's posting. It's around three posts a day with each being only few sentences long.

    Also, where's the challenge if you soft reset after losing a Pokemon? I thought the challenge was beating the game AFTER losing your precious team mates, and that's the main rule (main trait) of the challenge. Unless you lose all six of them. Then it's game over, as it's pretty long and boring training weaklings again. Better off playing the game again from scratch. At least that's what I did when I lost my first Blue Nuzlocke. And I even managed to lose to Rival in Route 22 just before E4. I've also lost twice in Silver (didn't even have time to record it, as I died at second gym once, and against Rival after that gym). My first run of Sapphire was a trainwreck too. Lost to May on Route 110. And all 4 times I started back from scratch. Of course, switching to turbo since it would really be tiresome playing it all again at normal speed. But I've always respected the dead. I play carefully, and manage my party well, so I don't lose Pokemon too often. But when I lose them, I release them. That's why I sometimes get too carried away while grinding. With all party members being as strong as the next gym leader is too much power, since regular trainers are often weaker than that said gym leader.
