To expand on this; Golem will handle Volkner later on easily. And Roserade will handle Wake, if you haven't already ice'd him. But I would suggest finding some type of Thunder Pokémon to beat down Gyarados' in the near future.

Update #2
Attempt #2
caught Tossly in the Dark Cave (Geodude), level'd Tim (Cyndaquil) into Quillava. But not before Bridgett perished. Went to Sprout tower and beat all the Sages and acquired the Flash TM. Then went to Falkner and defeated with the combined strength of Tossly and Tim.

    This one wont be a long one, but it's time for my Fire Red Nuzlocke...
    Update 5:

    I didn't really get time to write much out, but basically what happened is that I took down Blaine, did the first three Sevii Islands, took on Giovanni, which was an easy win, then went on to fight my rival. My damn rival. I would've won with ease, but I screwed up and chose to use Petal Dance against his Blastoise. He then switched and OHKO'd Oddium with his Growlithe. I took out the rest of his team, but Coco's Sleep Powder missed against the Blastoise who swiftly defeated my Butterfree. So basically, I decided that adding in Venonat and Lapras would be a good idea, and I ended it here because I didn't feel like grinding.

    My Team so far:
    Blaze/Charizard Lv.45

    -Metal Claw
    -Wing Attack

    Pierce/Nidoking Lv46

    -Double Kick

    Lil/Persian Lv45

    -Secret Power
    -Faint Attack
    -Pay Day

    Fear/Fearow Lv45

    -Drill Peck
    -Fury Attack

    Venom/Venonat Lv26

    -Leech Life

    Rara/Lapras Lv25

    -Body Slam
    -Confuse Ray
    -Perish Song

    OddiumII/Oddish Lv15
    Oddien/Oddish Lv26
    Glum/Gloom Lv36
    Spartan/Spearow Lv15
    Hawk/Spearow Lv20
    Rower/Spearow Lv20
    Spespa/Spearow Lv32
    Pogo/Pidgeotto Lv37
    Fang/Rattata Lv14
    Gnasher/Rattata Lv20
    Macho/Machop Lv16
    Bruce/Hitmonlee Lv30
    Pony/Ponyta Lv30 (Original, right?)
    Tangle/Tangela Lv21
    Safa/Nidoran M Lv24
    Brute/Tentacool Lv9
    Tentro/Tentacool Lv6
    Coolio/Tentacool Lv6
    Uno/Tentacool Lv8
    Tetete/Tentacool Lv25

    Fletcher/Pidgey Lv4-14
    Rage/Mankey Lv2-16
    FletcherII/Pidgeotto Lv15-27
    Triad/Dugtrio Lv29-30
    Jolt/Eevee Lv25-27
    Munch/Snorlax Lv30-30
    Spear/Fearow Lv10-32
    Pecks/Fearow Lv18-21

    A special mention:
    Oddium/Vileplume Lv14-45
    Coco/Butterfree Lv4-44

    I was planning on finishing up FireRed for this update, but after my losses and the newfound need to go grinding, I will do that sometime soon and post the final Fire Red update either later today or tomorrow.

        This is only half of my progress as I haven't yet got up to the second round of the Elite 4. I will do that tonight and post my update then, but for now, Update 6:

        I would post the rest of my FireRed in this update but due to car problems, I couldn't get home from a friend's house meaning I was stuck about 30km away from my house until about 5:30pm, and I've pretty much played since, mostly grinding. Anyway, I wont do a long update because I haven't typed anything out as I go along, so it'll pretty much just be pictures.

        These guys were all very easy, with me only losing small amounts of HP on each one, but then came the challenge. I lost 2 Pokemon against my rival before and almost knew for sure that I would lose some more this time. I was unfortunately correct:

        So yep, there goes my Venomoth, who hadn't really been all that useful due to the lack of a psychic type meaning the move Psychic wasn't STAB and both of its STAB types were unfortunately physical. Fortunately, I soon realised that Rara didn't take much damage from it, meaning I won with only Venom down.

        I will post my final team stats in the next update as opposed to now, because it will likely be up in the next 4-5 hours.

        EDIT: The Final Update: No. 7:
        This won't be long as it's now past midnight, but basically, I finished up FireRed, taking out Team Rocket and completing the second round of the E4, which I have pictures of below:

        As you can see, Charizard finished off all of them, as he has been the strongest Pokemon in this nuzlocke, followed by Nidoking, and I was much happier with how I did this time, with no losses at all, even though I only took 5 Pokemon with me because I couldn't find a good replacement for Venomoth.

        The Team:



        I'll probably start on Crystal in the next few days and post an update on it when I'm ready!

          Time to update!

          With most of my team evolved, we could easily defeat Roark, so I headed to his gym. I looked around to make sure the coast was clear of Kisuke and stepped inside. I dealt with the few hench-trainers in the gym and got my team some more experience that would definitely help in the gym battle.
          I approached Roark who was tickling a pebble, then he spotted me and tossed it aside. He cleared his throat and looked at me and said, "Ready to fight?" I nodded to show approval. Time to earn my first time.

          Current team:

          Konjiki/Nidorino (M, Lv.23)
          Acid, Peck, Focus Energy, Double Kick

          Gonryomaru/Luxio (M, Lv.16)
          Tackle, Leer, Charge, Spark

          Tobiume/Growlithe (F, Lv.21)
          Flame Wheel, Howl, Bite, Leer

          RyujinJaka/Monferno (F, Lv.17)
          Fury Swipes, Leer, Ember, Triple Kick

          Minazuki/Kirlia (F, Lv.20)
          Confusion, Confuse Ray, Return, Double Team

          Douglas/Staravia (M, Lv.15)
          Tackle, Growl, Quick Attack, Wing Attack

          None so far!

          I actually quit my LeafGreen Nuzlocke, I didn't really have the time to focus on it the way I would want to. Using LeafGreen for Gym Leader Challenge now. So go ahead and take it off the list.

          Username: NecrumWarrior
          Game: Diamond
          -Name all Pokemon
          -Dead team = endgame
          -No Legedary Pokemon

          Because I like crying. ;.;

            Alright let's just say I just stumbled on to this place before I did the challenge and won the game. Let's hypothetically say that I recorded it. Does the video evidence (if I took any) automatically put me as a champion? Hypothetically speaking of course ;)

              Game: Ruby

              I'd like to throw my hat in the ring here as well, with Ruby. Only additional rule is that I must nickname all my Pokemon.

              I chose Torchic as my starter. Male, nicknamed Chico. Went to find Brendan and hoped I wouldn't find a wild pokemon in route 101 but alas, I unfortunately encountered some before I had pokeballs. Beat Brendan. Came back to the Lab in Littleroot for some pokeballs so I could add a member to my team. I went up to route 102 and the first pokemon I encountered was a male Wurmple at level 3, caught it and nicknamed it Pinkworm. Then I went to route 103 and found a female Zigzagoon at level 3 and nicknamed her Ziggy. I did some hardcore grinding before traveling through route 103 to Petalburg as I didn't want any of my precious babies to faint. Did the stuff there, then continued to route 104 where I caught a level 4 female Wingull which I nicknamed Winnie. Ground a bit more until each of my pokemon were at level 8, then entered the woods and caught another male Wurmple at level 5 which I nicknamed Squishy and immediately boxed. I fought all the trainers up until Rustboro and grabbed some berries. There were a few close calls, but thank God Ziggy picked up some super potions for me on my journey thus far, as well as two nuggets which I sold for pure profit. I also level ground my team up to level 10 as I'm about to face Roxanne.

              Current Team:
              Chico/Torchic, (M. lv10)
              Winnie/Wingull, (F. lv10)
              Pinkworm/Beautifly, (M. lv10)
              Ziggy/Zigzagoon, (F. lv10)

              None so far.

              Squishy/Wurmple, (M. lv5)

              Update 1:
              Narrowly defeated Roxanne, but the casualties were many. Winnie made quick work of Geodude, but was killed by Nosepass's Rock Throw. As were Pinkworm and Ziggy. Chico was lucky enough to burn Nosepass with Ember and I kept spamming Growl and taking Potions until Nosepass eventually fainted. I emerged victorious, but I feel I lost three of my dearest friends. I am very saddened. (No wonder this is such a difficult challenge.)
              I have done nothing but add Squishy to my team since beating Roxanne.
              Current Team
              Chico/Torchic, (M. lv11)
              Squishy/Wurmple, (M. lv5)

              Pinkworm/Beautifly (M. lv10)
              Winnie/Wingull (F. lv12)
              Ziggy/Zigzagoon (F. lv10)


              Update 2:
              I added Squishy to my team and took it to the Petalburg Woods to train it up to at least level 10. I was glad to have a Dustox, as Pinkworm did not fare so well as a Beautifly. In Route 116 I caught a female Taillow at lv7 and nicknamed her Tila. I fought all the trainers, grabbed the berries, and set off to Rusturf Tunnel where I caught a male Whismur at lv7 whom I nicknamed Rory. Did that stuff, and returned to the Devon Corp for the letter, then I set sail for Dewford Town with Mr. Briney. My team was looking pretty good at this point, but as soon as I'd talked to everyone besides the gym in Dewford I sailed back to grind my team so Tila and Squishy were at level 14. I took on the gym trainers one by one, and Tila and Squishy were taking them out with Peck and Wing attack, and Gust and Confusion. I healed before facing Brawly, and beat them taking barely any damage. I headed to Granite Cave and grabbed flash, and made it to B1F before encountering a wild Pokemon, which was a female Aron, lv9. Caught her and I nicknamed her Erin. I braved my way through the rest of the cave and found Steven, delivered the letter, and returned to Dewford Town. After receiving the Old Rod from the fishing guru in Dewford, I considered catching a couple Magikarp/Tentacool just to box and save for later, but I haven't done so yet. Still debating waiting until I have a better rod or Surf to encounter some pokemon in Dewford Town and Route 106. This is all I have done, and I plan to grind Erin and Chico and likely Rory all to level 15 before I head to Slateport. No casualties in this update!
              Current Team:
              Erin/Aron, (F. lv9)
              Tila/Taillow, (F. lv15)
              Squishy/Dustox, (M. lv15)
              Chico/Torchic, (M. lv14)
              Rory/Whismur. (M. lv13)

              Deceased: Same as last update

              Boxed: None
              Gotta collect 'em all! (seriously, I'm trying.)

                      Always wanted to do a Nuzlocke. Update soon.

                        Badges: 3

                        I need to work out a schedule for my challenges or something, so I can update more frequently. Anyways, shortly after I continued my game after saving in Lavender Town, Pidgey evolved on Route 10. That was pretty nice, but unfortunelty, Nidorino was slain by Gary In Pokemon Tower. It's sad because he's one of the Pokemon I've had longest, I caught pretty early in the challenge. At least Nidorino would get a proper buriel after the battle. I left after defeating Gary, since I have not yet obtained the Silph Scope so I can see through the ghost's illusions in Pokemon Tower. I encountered yet another Pidgey on Route 8, and went ahead defeated it. However, I fortunately caught a Growlithe on Route 7, I named him Fenfir. After arriving in Celadon City, I decided I wanted the Eevee more than the Pokemon I could recieve in the Game Corner. I named him Volt since I plan to evolve him into a Jolteon. I then went into the Celadon Department Store and purchased a Leaf Stone to evolve Weed into a Vileploom. After that, I went into the Game Corner and pressed the button behind the poster that activated the steps into the Rocket's Secret Hideout. I tore through the facility pretty easily, and I have arrived at Giovanni's office. My next update will include a detailed battle with Giovanni. Oh, and I guess my Spearow evolved at some point, can't remember when.

                            Meh, I was defeated by bugsy...
                            In storm silver she has 6 pokemon, she's ridiculously overpowered!
                            Guess I had to level up my party more..
                            Anyhow, I'll start over and try again.
                            The rules are the same:
                            Can't use gifted pokemon, only the first pokemon encountered in each area.
                            Limit of 3 heals per center, limit of 10 items per mart.
                            Use only poke balls to catch pokemons.
                            This time I will do it!

                            Alright, first update on my Storm Silver run!
                            I caught a Hoothoot on route 29, named him Keibriados.
                            I caught a Numel on route 49, named him Vulcan. Unfortunately it died at lv.7 while battling a trainer :(
                            I caught a Magikarp in Cherrygrove City with the old rod, named her Failkarp. Unsurprisingly, it was slain soon after.
                            I caught a Weedle on route 30, named her Duelista.
                            I caught a Bellsprout on route 31, named him Oklob. It was slain in the Bell Tower... Irony?
                            I caught a Sandshrew in the Dark Cave, named her Almalexia.
                            In the Bell Tower, then, I found a Spinda! Managed to catch her, named her Psyche.
                            I tried fishing again in Violet City, and this time found a Poliwag. I caught and named her Ilsuiw.
                            I then went to train in the outskirts of Violet City, on route 32, where I found and caught a Drifloon, named Glorx Vloq.
                            I am now preparing to face Falkner, and this is my party:
                            Duelista the lv.15 Beedrill
                            Poisong Sting, Twinneedle, Bug Bite, Fury Attack

                            Almalexia the lv.14 Sandshrew
                            Scratch, Defense Curl, Sand-Attack, Poison Sting

                            Ilsuiw the lv.12 Poliwag
                            Water Sport, Bubble, Hypnosis, Water Gun

                            Keibriados the lv.12 Hoothoot
                            Tackle, Growl, Hypnosis, Air Cutter

                            Psyche the lv.13 Spinda
                            Tackle, Uproar, Copycat

                            Glorx Vloq the lv.13 Drifloon
                            Constrict, Minimize, Astonish, Gust

                              In-Game Name: Remus
                              Game: Leaf Green
                              -Name all Pokemon
                              -Starter Pokemon based off Trainer ID
                              -Not officially enforcing the rules until the player has Poké Balls and can catch Pokémon
                              -Disallowing duplicate captures
                              -Boxing fainted pokemon in a 'Passed' box.

                              Remus begins his adventure in wonderful Pallet Town. With a Trainer ID of 61229, he selects Leonardo, the Squirtle when presented with the opportunity of a lifetime by Professor Oak. After successfully vanquishing his rival's Bulbasaur. With a triumphant rest, demanded by his mother, Remus slipped off into the tall grass to make his way onwards towards Viridian City.

                              Making his way carefully through the grass to Viridian City and speaking to a fine gentleman that offered him a Potion and told him to check out the Pokemart, he managed to battle three Rattatas before breaking free of the grass and taking in the sights of the city. A quick trip to the Pokemon Center for a brief respite preceded a visit to the aforementioned Pokemart. What’s this? A package for Professor Oak? Why, of course I’ll deliver that! And back to Pallet Town he goes, trudging through the grass and a few more battles along the way. Professor Oak was quite thrilled to have his package delivered to him and offered Remus five Pokeballs as thanks.

                              Remus left the Lab to visit Daisy, his rival’s sister, who took it upon herself to offer a town map to assist in his journeys. After thanking the young lady, he checked in on his mother and took a short nap before returning to Viridian City via Route 1.
                              Remus’s fateful encounter with Splinter, the Rattata soon followed, capturing him at level 3 and continuing on to the city…

                              Current Party
                              Leonardo (lvl 6-7)
                              Splinter (lvl 3)

                                Second update on my Storm Silver run!
                                Here I am, challenging Falkner, the bird pokemon gym leader.
                                I start with my trusty Almalexia the Sandshrew, facing Falkner's Doduo!
                                I command Almalexia to spend the first few turns buffing her defense up with Defense Curl, then I use a potion and finish off the Doduo with ease.

                                The next pokemon he sends out is Murkrow. Under normal circumstances this pokemon's attacks would be quite damaging, but since Almalexia buffed her defense up, now she can play offensively.
                                3 scratches are all it takes to bring Murkrow down. Next out is Swablu. Since I know Falkner taught it Solarbeam, I switch back my Sandshrew and send out Keibriados the Hoothoot.
                                Solarbeam is all this pokemon has of notable power, and Hoothoot manages to beat it with a combo of Hypnosis and Air Cutter.
                                Things look nicely for me, since the popular bird trainer only has 3 pokemons left now, while I still have 6!
                                Chatot is next. Unfortunately for me, I greatly underestimated this pokemon. I mindlessly send out Spinda, and Chatot pulverizes her with just one chatter...
                                I try to hypnotize Chatot with Poliwag, but he fails, and is brought down too. Annoying pokemon...
                                I decide to send out my strongest pokemon, Duelista the Beedrill, and end the slaughter.
                                She uses Fury Attack a couple of times, while enduring this pokemon's annoying chatter, and finally ends the bird's pitiful existence.
                                Falkner, why did you even catch this thing??

                                Next is Farfetch'd; in this hack he is a Fighting/Flying type. Needless to say, my Hoothoot has a big advantage, and using Hypnosis and Air Cutter, Farfetch'd is brought down with ease.

                                Now all Falkner has left is Pidgeotto. Scary, but it's 4 against one.
                                I do not want to lose Duelista yet, and send her back in favour of Hoothoot.
                                I use a Potion on Duelista on the first turn Keibriados is out. Keibriados is dead in one hit of Tackle...
                                I send out Sandshrew, and start using Defense Curl until Pidgeotto's aerial ace doesn't scare me anymore. It takes 3 potions to make this strategy work.
                                Almalexia then starts using scratch against Pidgeotto, and she do manages to damage him a bit, but she takes a critical hit the turn after and is left with only 7 hp.
                                I decide to send out Drifloon to heal my Sandshrew a bit, and the poor balloon pokemon gets one shotted by a critical aerial ace...
                                Duelista is my only hope now... She uses Bug Bite on Pidgeotto, eating his berry and regaining some health, while bringing the bird down to less than half health.

                                My Beedrill then endures aerial ace aaaaaand... I win with Twinneedle! Yay! I did it, but I lost 4 pokemons...

                                I used a total of 6 potions during this fight.
                                Farewell Keibriados the Hoothoot, Glorx Vloq the Drifloon, Psyche the Spinda and Ilsuiw the Poliwag.

                                    Update #1:
                                    After arriving once more in Viridian City, Remus takes a short break at the Pokemon Center before visiting the old man to the North. After a brief teaching session, he's handed his own Teachy TV. With his new item in hand, Remus ventured off to the West and onto Route 22. After vanquishing a Rattata (No dupe rule), Remus encountered a Spearow! Weakening him with Splinter, he managed to catch him. Our newest addition to the PokeParty: Hawkman, the Spearow (And yes, Hawkman is female. I don't judge.)

                                    Remus spent some time in this particular patch of grass, feeling some manner of important battle on the horizon. When his team was finally all above level 10, he visited the northern path of Route 22, only to find Kene, his Rival. This battle was quick and painless, with Hawkman easily soloing both Rattata and Bulbasaur.

                                    Afterwards, a quick visit to the Pokemon Center for a top-up and then the PokeMart to purchase potions and a few Pokeballs and Remus continued onwards, north to Route 2.

                                    Again, the first encounter on Route 2... a Rattata. With a sigh, Splinter made short work of her only to encounter the newest member of the Superhero Squad... Wasp, the Weedle.

                                    Current Team

                                    Leonardo, the Squirtle - Mild

                                    Hawkman, the Spearow - Docile
                                    Peck, Growl, Leer

                                        Alright, since I'm just going to ignore every other challenge I've signed up for, I'm going to sign up for this one.

                                        Username: Samurott01
                                        Game: Ruby
                                        Extra Rules: None

                                        I already have somewhat of an update.

                                        Update #1: Ruby Hard Mode.... And, Begin!
                                        I'm playing this on my DS, so I won't be able to update very quickly.
                                        I started by naming myself Nuz (one point for originality!) and doing all the beginning stuff. On Route 101, I ended up stealing a Mudkip and I called him Muddy (two points for originality!). Somehow, I managed to skip through Route 103 without encountering a single Pokemon in the wild, but I ended up battling May and easily defeating her Treecko without its Grass attack. Then, I got Poke Balls and was able to go catch a Zigzagoon on Route 103. I don't want to say its nickname because it's embarrassing. Then, I got pretty lucky and caught a Seedot and called it Oaktree (three points for originality!). That's where I am now.

                                        The Samurott01 Official Nuzlocke Team!
                                        Oaktree (Male) Lv. 4


                                        ****** (Male) Lv. 2


                                        Muddy (Male) Lv. 7


                                        Boxed: 0

                                        Dead: 0

                                        Originality Points (I'll be keeping track of this to see just how original I am): 3

                                        That's it for now, I'll be updating later! Peace!

                                          It's been almost a year since I've done a Nuzlocke, so I decided to start one on White. I'm actually doing it on my physical cartridge, so there's that.

                                          Only optional rule I'm running is no duplicates.

                                          -The Lenora fight was fine, Wilfred soloed it like a trooper. He had to have the assistance of quite a few Super Potions, however
                                          -I caught Lenny the Sewaddle in the actual inside part of Pinwheel Forest, and before we got out he ws already Lv. 20 and evolving into a Swadloon

                                            Haven't really played a Pokémon game the full way through in ages so I figured what better way than a Nuzlocke?

                                            -Failed to catch a wild Corsola in Petalburg Woods.
                                            -Failed to catch a wild Regirock on Route 116 (the muhf****r used explosion and almost killed Alex).
                                            -Failed to catch a wild Porygon2 in Verdanturf tunnel.
                                            -Beat Roxanne with ease.

                                            -Retrieved Devon Goods from Aqua grunt.
                                            -Leah the Whismur fainted in a battle vs. May, was locked in with Uproar, simply careless.

                                            -Caught a Charmander in Granite Cave, named Bruce after the original Nuzlocke.
                                            -Bruce evolved into a Charmeleon.
                                            -Beat Brawley after abusing Ryan's Intimidate ability on Makuhita.


                                            I'm really upset that I lost Leah as I was really looking forward to having an Exploud on my team as I really like the design, and up to that point Whismur was by far exceeding my expectations for her and was taking out everything. Pleased with how my Gym battles turned out though.
