    Part 3: The Sound of Silence
    Spoiler:
    After some chit-chat with Bianca, Cheren and Professor Juniper and receiving the habitat list upgrade for my Pokédex, I went on my merry way to the Virbank City. There, I got to witness an argument between the town's gym leader and her father, who apparently aspired to be an actor, while also neglecting his duty as a ship captain. Well, that's one way to block the player's path.

    At the Virbank Complex I caught my next team mate – a male Pidove I called Horst, because the name sounds so derpy. It would've been nice to know that I would have had more possible encounters in the lower area, but I'm not complaining. Having a flying type on the team is always a plus.

    I battled some workers there at the request of their boss and fought a few Audino in the grass to grind and finally entered the gym to take on the next challenge. The other band members turned out to be a breeze, so I wondered if I may have overdone the training a bit. I don't want to be overleveled too much, but I can only guess the approximate levels of the gym leaders, since I don't want to spoil myself by looking them up online.

    But Roxie turned out to be someone not to be taken lightly. I chose to lead with Sam since he had just evolved and he should get his chance to shine. First she sent out a Koffing that was quickly defeated with just a few Water Guns. Her second Pokémon was a Whirlipede that gave me more trouble. I switched to Horst for the type advantage, and it seemed to go pretty well at first.

    Horst dealt some damage with Air Cutter, though just enough to bring it down in three hits. But that didn't seem to matter, since Roxie just used Pursuit and Protect. That is, until she started using Venoshock. I was immediately glad that Air Cutter was a special attack so I couldn't trigger Whirlipede's possible Poison Point. However, at this point we were both in the yellow, so we both used a Super Potion.

    We basically started over where we began, but this time she was smarter. Instead of playing around with the rest of her moves, she just continued with Venoshock. It did decent damage, but Horst would certainly live two hits, albeit with only a few HP left, as long as she didn't land a critical hit. Which is exactly what she did, because my enemies seem to have a 100% crit rate if my Pokémon are at a little over half of their HP!

    I'm sorry, Horst. You've only been on the team for a short while. I was so sure that you could do it.
    I sent in Sam again, because the rest of the team either had too bad defenses, a weakness against poison or no decent moves. So, keeping the Poison Point and Whirlipede's good physical defense in mind, I went back to using Water Gun. Whirlipede didn't put up much of a fight after being already weakened by Horst and went down with not much resistance. So, I gained my second badge, but at a price. Rest in peace, little bird.


    Part 4: Not quite Lumiose
    Spoiler:

    Pokéstar Studios, I decided, is a funny little gimmick. But for now I'd concentrate on my career as a trainer, not as a film star. At least Roxie's father did the same thing and went back to his job as a captain. Before I could reach the harbor, however, I was stopped by a commotion involving Team Plasma. Hugh, Roxie and I chased after them when they fled, but they could escape. Not before dropping a hint about leaving for Castelia City. Alright, it's not like I was going to go there anyway.

    Upon reaching the city, I was immediately approached by a clown, who gave me a free bike. Well, thank you! I've already repeatedly pressed Y until now, forgetting that I didn't have a bike yet. This would make things easier. I don't like having to hold down B for running.

    I explored the city, battled my way through the various buildings and got a few hold items. But for some reason, Castelia City seems much smaller than the first time I've been there in Black version. Well, I already knew where everything was, and on top of that it is pretty small in comparison to Lumiose City.

    Either way, when Castelia was checked off, I checked out the desert area. As I expected, the way to the next route was blocked, but I found some more trainers to fight and a new Pokémon to catch. A female Minccino I called Sally. Since I already had two normal types with Bluebell and Mimi, I placed it in the PC on my next visit at the Pokémon Center.

    Well, there was nothing else to do, so I finally followed the main plot into the sewers, where the Plasma grunts apparently hid. I teamed up with Hugh and barely did three steps when two Zubat jumped us. At first I was a bit disappointed, because... well... it's Zubat. But I guess it could replace Horst as the new flying type. (Sorry, Horst, but I need to move on. Besides, I barely knew you after all.) The poison type is a pretty neat bonus and Crobat is awesome. At least it wasn't a Rattata, apparently the only other Pokémon here apart from Grimer. So, Zubat was probably the best thing I could've gotten anyway.

    I caught the male one and named him Boris. Unfortunately, his attack stat was lowered in favor of special defense, which resulted in his attack and special attack being the same. Because of that, I taught him Venoshock so he would have a STAB move (oh, the irony), but only after teaching him thief first and stealing a Black Sludge from a Grimer as well as Hugh's Miracle Seed. He seemed to be fine with it, though. Apparently he has a whole lot of them.

    Team Plasma was quickly discovered and defeated. It was only then when Burgh showed up. Well, thanks for the help, pal. You're just as useful as in Black and White. But there was another character entering the story: a weird Plasma scientist. Yeah, I've heard about him before, but I was also told that he'd be pretty awesome, so he better not disappoint me.

    With Burgh back in the city, I'd be able to challenge his gym now, but first I wanted to see the rest of the sewers. In the Relic Passage I found a Woobat. Yay, more bats. In a flash of uncreativity I nearly called her Kissy, but in the end I settled on Krissy. Not much better, but hey.

    Also, there was another exit to Castelia City with patches of grass. I found a Skitty, which makes me think the game may try to force me into doing a monotype locke. No, thank you, I don't need any more normal types. My second encounter was an Eevee. Do I need to mention that I facepalmed? Well, the newly caught Elaine joined her normal type buddy Minccino on the PC, which is also where Krissy ended up a bit later. I actually considered taking her with me for the psychic type, but for now, I'm satisfied with my team. I might get back to her later on.

    Speaking of the team, everyone else followed Sam's example and evolved. I'm a bit sad that Bluebell lost his awesome blue eyes. And that he got the ability Illuminate. Just why?! Anyway, Mimi actually tried to evolve earlier, but I stopped it, so she could learn Bounce first. When the time finally came, I realized that she had switched gender in the process, when a female enemy successfully used Attract on her one battle later. Initially I called her Mimi, because she looked so sad for no reason. Well, now she actually has a reason, if the sudden gender change wasn't voluntary.

    I'll stop here for the time being. Next time I'll be off to challenge Burgh.

    Current location and objective: Castelia City, challenge the gym.

          UPDATE #12: MAKING A SPLASH!
          Spoiler:
          I have returned! My exams are over, and I celebrated by exploring Olivine Lighthouse. The trainers weren't too tough, and I reached the top, where I met Jasmine and a sick Amphy. My next destination, then, was Cianwood City, which meant crossing the sea. A lot of sea. I taught Terra Surf, and braced myself for the struggle.

          As expected, the journey was repeatedly interrupted by Tentacool, the first of which I caught and named Jam. Of course, I had to leave Leto out of the battles for fear of losing him, so it fell upon the rest of the team to deal with the constant trainer and wild Pokémon battles. It got to the point where I had to head back to Olivine to heal up before I lost someone. Eventually, though, I made it to Cianwood, with a new Pokémon in tow - Ren, a Mantine.

          My first port of call was the pharmacy, where I picked up the Secret Potion. Next I headed back to the sea to level up a bit before taking on Chuck. In the north end of the city, I found a Krabby hiding under a rock; I caught her and named her Kellie. I also ran into Suicune, which triggered a battle with Eusine. He was rather tough, but I was able to deal with him with no casualties.

          After boring myself stupid battling Tentacool and Tentacruel, I decided to head out along Route 47 towards the Safari Zone. The trainers there were mostly easy, and allowed Leto to finally get some action. I also found a Seel, called Serra, in the water. Not surprising that I'd find a lot of Water-types at this point in the game, really.

          With the trainers exhausted, I decided to level up back near Cianwood. I was aiming for everybody to hit at least level 31, to deal with Chuck; Terra and Tristan would be the linchpins of my strategy, but Artax might be needed for emergency Yawn and Charm application. During this grinding, Justin hit level 29 and learned Bite - immediately evolving into Espeon and learning Swift! No Psychic-type moves yet, which is a pain, but awesome nonetheless.

          Finally, with everyone at level 31, I think I'm ready for Chuck. Hopefully it goes well.

          Defeat Chuck at Cianwood City Gym

                Killed by a Winstrate's Meditite


                "Leffen"
                Level 20 - 45
                Killed by a Medicham in Mosdeep Gym


                "Rule Check"
                Level 45 - 54
                Killed by Steven's Cradily in the final fight, after taking out most of his pokemon

                May they rest in peace, all three of them. They all contributed to the team in some way, at different times, and I feel that their death was because of mistakes on my part, and their death could have been prevented.


                The Final Team

                Spoiler:


                "Kip" Level 64
                Blizzard
                Earthquake
                Rock Slide
                Waterfall

                Kip was definitely the MVP of this entire nuzlocke, being overleveled compared to the rest of the team, and taking down most of the crucial pokemon in the game, including Steven's Metagross.


                "Mushtop" Level 59
                Seed Bomb
                Headbutt
                Stun Spore
                Sky Uppercut

                Mushtop would definitely be the MVP of the run if Mushtop had died. He was there in the beginning, and was always there to take down anything physically weak. I was worried at first that Mushtop was going to be a glass cannon and die to a crit sometime, but I was glad to see that his defenses were pretty good.


                "Bandit" Level 56
                Slash
                Headbutt
                Blizzard
                Strength

                I was debating on letting Bandit come into the Elite Four with me, because he had been so awful later on in the run, but I did end up letting him in, since he was one of the three pokemon that I used in the beginning completing the Trio of Kip, Mushtop, and Bandit. He was effective early on, but as stated before made less of a contribution, as the run went on. I would have used him more if he had more move diversity, but there wasn't much to come out of him in the physical move department.


                "Pikablu" Level 58
                Strength
                Play Rough
                Waterfall
                Blizzard

                I had only planned to use Pikablu as a Hm Slave, but she kept on leveling up as I progressed through the game with her in my party. Her Play Rough had gotten so strong, I had to put her in my Elite Four team, and she made a great contribution.


                "Risk" Level 58
                Night Slash
                Psycho Cut
                Slash
                Swords Dance

                Risk was one of my other lucky finds in route 120, and he was put into my party once leffen died. He ended up being great in the elite four, and I don't regret his addition to the team.

                      I'm about halfway through a Nuzlocke that I've turned into a YouTube series. I've heavily edited it and made it rather goofy. Click on my signature if you wanna see the episodes I have up so far. (As of this writing, two! omg)

                                So I'm doing a fire red randomizer nuzlocke and I've reached celadon city.
                                the rules state that I can have only 1 encounter in any route so what about the pokemon you get in the game conner can you have all of them or only 1 of them.
                                My current team is:-
                                lv 28 golbat (batwoman)
                                lv 35 crawdaunt (krabby)
                                lv 38 pigeot (finally)
                                lv 35 banana (ampharos)
                                and if the challenger doesn't have more than 10 pokemons to get hm flash can he use cheats to just get the hm or should he go yolo and give himself a headache hypothetically of course....

                                  First Update. Its a long one.

                                  Spoiler:
                                  At the begining of the game, I named myself Pplayer (Because of my username). After all of the begining stuff I decided to pick Treecko as my starter. I saved Professor Birch from the pokemon that was attacking him, and he let me keep the treecko. I decided to nickname him Tom. After that, I went out to go battle May. I beat her (barely) and went back to the lab to get my Pokedex. I then caught my first pokemon which was a wurmple, which i named Joey.
                                  I continued going north up to route 103 where i caught a Poochyena. I nicknamed her Jules. I then went over to route 102 where i caught a Zigzagoon named Linda (Im just giving them human names lol). After that i trained up Tom and Jules up to level 8. I went through the trainers on that route, and made it to Petalburg City. I entered the gym, then Wally walked in and i had to help him get a pokemon. After all that i just kept going on. On route 104 I caught a marill that i named Maria. I trained up my team all to level 10 (Only the ones i used to fight). I defeated the trainers on that route, entered Petalburg Woods, and caught a Silcoon. I named it Sarah. I went through the woods where i had to fight a Team Aqua grunt. His Poochyena kept Sand Attacking my Poochyena so i could barely hit him with any attacks. Then he kept using Howl to raise his attack. Then he OHKO'd my Poochyena. Rip in peace. I was pretty salty. Anyways I sent out Maria fo finish the job. I got through the forest and made it to Rustboro City. Surprisingly, I Defeated the gym with ease. Maria's water gun swept through the trainers easily, and Tom's absorb took out Roxannes Pokemon with ease. After the gym, the guy i saved in the woods needed another favor. He said i needed to get his goods back. I went to route 116 abd caught a Whismur which I named Ear Hole. (Its Pokedex entry says it breathes through its ear holes. Whut?) I trained everyone to level 15, then beat the trainers on the route, and finally I went into the tunnel. I defeated the Aqua grunt with no casualties this time, and Tom evolved into Grovyle. I returned the goods to the Devon worker, and he wanted me to speak with the president of the Devon Company. The prsident toldd me that i needed to deliver a letter to Steven in Dewford Town, and the Goods to Slateport City. Whatever. I headed back towards Petalburg Woods and on the way I saw May. We battled, and I won once again. Finally, I headed down back to Mr. Briney's house and asked him to take me to Dewford Town. He agreed. This is where I saved the game.

                                  Spoiler:
                                  I went directly to Granite Cave after reaching Dewford Town. I caught a Makuhita which I namrd Punchy brcause I honestly couldnt think of anything else. After that I trained all of my Pokemon to level 20 to take on Brawly's gym. Maria evolved into azumarill and Ear Hole evolved into loudred in the process. After that, I caught a magikarp and named it Old (cause i caught it with the old rod). Then I defeated Brawly and got my second gym badge. I then made my way through Granite Cave and delivered the letter to Steven. He gave me the TM for Steel Wing
                                  Wing (which i couldnt even use). I exited the cave and told Mr. Briney to take me to Slateport. I defeated all the trainers on the beach and went into Slateport to deliver the goods. Dock told me to go deliver the goods to the scientist guy. I forgot what his name was but whatever. I went to the museum, defeated the Aqua grunts, and delivered the goods to the scientist guy. I saved the game.

                                  I continued north. On Route 110 I caught and Electrike which I named Rick. I got to Mauville City and defeated Wally in front of the gym. Then I went west towards Route 117 and caught a Oddish which i named Oddi. I beat all the trainers on that route, trained a little bit more, and beat Wattson's gym for my 3rd gym badge. I went north to route 111 but didnt get any encounters on that route.I contiued to Route 114 and caught a Numel named Magma. I went into Fiery Path and caught a Slugma named Homeless (because slugs are just snails without shells). I decided to save the game there.

                                    As you can see, a fair bit done since the last update. I trained my pokemon to level 13 each and took on Falkner, beating him relatively comfortably. Next, I fetched an egg from Professor Elm's assistant in Violet City. I then went on to Route 32 and caught Janice the Ekans, who sadly does not have a place in my party. After beating all the trainers, I made it to Union Cave, where I caught Rocky the Geodude, who is a solid member to the team right now. After coming out of Union Cave, I made my way to Azalea to heal before going to the Slowpoke Well. When I reached here, I caught Oscar the Zubat, who after a tough grinding session, is a solid team member. After defeating Team Rocket, the egg I had hatched and I gained Ralph the Togepi. I went on to beat Falkner and after having a little trouble with Scyther, I eventually beat him without loss. Before heading to Ilex Forest, I went to heal and then had to beat Boris, my arch rival. His Gastly was no match for Oscar's Bite and Zubat was no match for Rocky's Rock Throw. Croconaw was a bit trickier though, I eventually took him down with Dora, who evolved into a Pidgeotto after that battle. Ilex forest was a bitter sweet time, we caught Velma the Oddish, but lost our first team member, Ralph. After using his first ever Headbutt, Ralph the Togepi thought he could take on a Pineco, but after he Selfdestructed himself, Ralph followed suit. We then reached Goldenrod after I tried to hold back the tears about Ralph's passing.

                                      UPDATE #13: TRISTAN AND THE BRAWL OF CIANWOOD
                                      Spoiler:
                                      I knew Chuck was going to be a pain. With a Rock Slide-using Primape and a Poliwrath, I was prepared for a tough battle. Then I remembered that Tristan still had Reflect...

                                      The battle wasn't easy - without Tristan, I could easily have lost someone during it. My strategy was to throw up Reflect when needed, and bombard Primeape with Magical Leaf. Of course, things didn't go exactly as planned, what with Focus Punch hitting when I set up Reflect, and I had to use both Synthesis and a Soda Pop to prevent Tristan falling. Still, determined to keep Reflect up, I took a risk and left Tristan to face Poliwrath after Primeape went down.

                                      Poliwrath was tough, but I managed to poison him and keep Reflect going to avoid Focus Punch. Finally, though, the annoying Water-type went down, and the Storm Badge was mine, with Tristan carrying the entire battle!

                                      Before heading back to Olivine, I wanted to train up a bit - Leto and Terra would be the ones to face Jasmine, and they needed a few levels under their belts. I picked up Fly, and Kiba took me to the Safari Zone so I could train on Route 48. There, I found a Tauros, who I caught and named Hoodlum, before setting about grinding. In the midst of this, Tristan hit level 32, and, to my astonishment, evolved into Meganium! That would have been useful for Chuck...

                                      Leto and Terra need their training, but after that I'll be challenging Jasmine! Until next time!


                                      UPDATE #14: RED STEEL
                                      Spoiler:
                                      Back in Olivine City, it was time to challenge Jasmine. I was feeling much more confident for this battle than with Chuck, and when it started, my confidence was not misplaced. Jasmine started with Magnemite, and I with Leto, who took it out with one Flame Wheel. Next was Steelix, so I recalled Leto and brought in Terra. Steelix started with Screech, which worried me somewhat, but I used Mud Shot to lower her speed. It didn't make any difference, though - Terra was actually faster than Steelix, who was two levels higher than she was. Still, Steelix used Screech again, and I decided I had to get Terra out of there, so I threw in Tristan. Just in time, too - Steelix used Iron Tail, and although she missed, I was worried about losing Terra. As per my usual strategy, Tristan set up a Reflect and took a Screech before I brought Terra back in. Iron Tail did a pathetic amount of damage to my Quagsire, and one Surf took Steelix out.

                                      Finally, Jasmine sent in another Magnemite, so I sent in Leto again. He took damage from Sonicboom, but immediately hit back with Flame Wheel, and the Mineral Badge was mine.

                                      With that done, my next destination was Mahogany Town. I didn't fancy trudging through Mount Mortar, regardless of what I might find in there, so I headed back to Ecruteak and Surfed towards Mahogany, meeting Suicune along the way. I hoped to hit the grass before I ran into a Pokémon, but it wasn't to be; I found a Goldeen in the water. You are not the Pokémon I want, madam! Slightly annoyed, I called her Loretta - 'Get back, Loretta!' (A million points to you if you got that.)

                                      The Mahogany Gym was closed, so the only thing I could do was head north to Lake of Rage. There, I ran into a Magikarp - who fainted on me (thanks, Artax). It didn't matter though, as with the shiny clause in effect (and I don't care if it's scripted, I'm counting it anyway), I was able to catch the red Gyarados - Scarlett.

                                      That triggered the appearance of Lance, who asked me to meet him in Mahogany. I, on the other hand, decided it'd be best to battle the trainers I'd missed before taking on Team Rocket. That was where I stopped for the night; I'll continue in a bit.


                                      CURRENT OBJECTIVE:
                                      Clear out Team Rocket from Mahogany Town.

                                          Spoiler:
                                          This is a little thing I used to document on another site(not telling you which), but then I lost interest in it for a while. But now I'm gonna continue this... just on another site

                                          The run began on 7 Mat this year. In-run, I'm at the 5th badge, whilst in game, the run is finished. This will also be in part-written log part-story format. I hope you guys enjoy it!

                                          Prologue:
                                          Spoiler:
                                          So yeah. Believe or not, Plat was my first ever game.

                                          So while I was studying for my exams, I found my old cartridge for that game, so I decided to go ahead and nuz it .

                                          So therefore, I will document it.

                                          Rules are the simple old ones, catch the first encounter, permabox the dead, and dupes clause.

                                          Let's see if I can conquer an already hard game DEATHLESS! >:)

                                          Or maybe just beat the longest I have gone without deaths.

                                          So yeah, introduction stuff blah blah, and soon I'm in the starting town.

                                          And then soon later it's starter time, so who do I pick?

                                          I am fairly neutral to all 3 of these guys, I would usually go for Piplup, but I would like to save him for I time where I would like to re-make my first Diamond run, and I want to try out Plat's water types. And then there would be Chimchar and Turtwig. I think I've used an Infernape before, and I also want to try out Plat's fire types. so that leaves out...


                                          Aston the Turtwig (M)
                                          Lvl 5, Impish, Quick to flee.


                                          I guess the nature would help a bit, since the line is supposed to be physically defensive.

                                          So I get home, grind Aston on the way, and finally, we can process through the game. I decide to buy my balls, and so now we can proceed to do captures. What did I obtain at Route 201 I wonder...?


                                          Martin the Starly (M)
                                          Lvl 3, Serious, Likes to run.


                                          Was hoping for a female but eh.

                                          Serious is neutral, so I have less things to talk about. And if I get the bird here, I get the rodent...

                                          I guess the nature would probably help a bit. Don't expect her to go all the way because of that, since Bibarel is a bit meh, though she is definitely staying with us for the time being.

                                          ...Aaaand that's a wrap.

                                          Spoiler:
                                          After the useless ball tutorial, I decided to grind everyone. It was going fine...except for the fact Riza was the hardest to train of the 3. And-OH WAIT SHE'S LEARNING A NEW MOVE NOW!....



                                          (Riza learnt Defence Curl!)
                                          .........

                                          When will you ever become useful....

                                          And anyway, back to my encounters...

                                          Statix the Shinx (F)
                                          Lvl 4, Sassy, Somewhat vain.

                                          She doesn't have black colouring, I'm only using coloured names for mons who will join the team. I can live with the nature and characteristic and all, but I am already using the Lux-line in another run of mine, and I want to try something new.

                                          Then all the plot-detective stuff blah blah, and then we go on to get our next encounter, most likely a grass seed thing.
                                          And THAT'S not a grass seed thing!

                                          Rob Jr. the Zubat (M)
                                          Lvl 3, Brave, Often lost in thought.

                                          Named after the boss Crobat from my HG run(No, not AGHG, another HGSS run I did.). Crobat is definitely my all-time favourite flying type, but I've used it like 3 times now, and I personally feel I haven't used Staraptor enough. So yeah, not using him.

                                          Then, I decided to walk off and take in an encounter from the sea place.

                                          Obvious, encounter is obvious.

                                          Versillo the Magikarp (M)
                                          Lvl 5, Naughty, Likes to relax.

                                          First water type, but a bit unlikely he will really join the team because I don't like Gyarados, and there are better water types I would like to give a shot with.

                                          So yeah, the part with the clowns, I give the parcel to the rival, and then, we fight him. As the title says...

                                          We had monkeys for breakfast.

                                          And so we proceed to look for our next encounter. After all that running into countless dupes...


                                          Kain the Abra (M)
                                          Lvl 4, Lonely, Often lost in thought.

                                          I'm normally not bothered by defensively bad natures...except this is an Abra. Though since I've already used an Alakazam, He has Riza treatment and is most likely not going all the way.

                                          Soon enough we get to fight some trainers. Hm, who does this guy use? I remember one of the guys use a Mach- oh, a Shinx? That means the next guy would have a Machop.

                                          "I got a nifty keen gym badge!"

                                          Pfff yeah, how did you win, crits?

                                          *sends out a Psyduck*

                                          Oh. I guess you could technically kill a rocks with that...

                                          I get my rock smash HM and a new encounter....

                                          Rachel the Psyduck (F)
                                          Lvl 6, Docile, Scatters things often

                                          Dunno what 'Scatters things often" does, but I'm fine with this, anyway.

                                          Let's stop here.

                                          So I'm guessing your Silver's older sister?

                                          Who's that?

                                          Uhh, nevermind.

                                          Soon, we get to to the next route. Please be a Ponyta, please be...

                                          Not what I wanted, but I still like the Machop line a fair bit, even though I am already using them in one of my runs. and uh *check info*

                                          Uhh, what are you doing?

                                          You...you have NO GUARD! Forget the meh nature, welcome to the team!

                                          Wait....that means.....


                                          WE HAVE A FULL TEAM!

                                          And the next part is just grinding and whatsoever, so we will stop here.

                                          4 We will, we will ROCK YOU. (9/5/15 as well)
                                          Spoiler:
                                          Wow, you are really good at battling for a calm Machop!

                                          Eh, it's not that hard, really.

                                          I'm impressed too, don't worry. you actually kind of overwhelm me by that. Unlike...

                                          Don't stare at me like that!

                                          Hey dude, when are you gonna finish training us?

                                          Well, as for you, Aston, I want you to be Lvl 17, the leader's ace is a mon with high attack, so a bit more strength is necessary. As for everyone else, Lvl 13 would do.

                                          But hey, master, Kain is ABOVE level 13!

                                          Well, let's say I'm impatient and I don't want teleport for too long.

                                          Hee.. You guys never fail to make me laugh.

                                          Well, all the males are still higher leveled than the females...*grumble*

                                          Uhh, no? Aston is still only level 13, he's just close to reaching 14, but you'll be the same level as him after the grinding montage is done

                                          And yep, the grinding montage soon ended and then we head off to the gym.



                                          This is a gym? I don't see any treadmills or anything.

                                          Don't ask me, ask the game.

                                          "Well well young trainer! You seem new, so let me give you some tips! Rock mons don't like water, and they are also bad against fighting and grass guys!"

                                          Here you go:
                                          -Grass -Water -Fight
                                          Yeah. And I'm 15, just for the note. Anyways...

                                          And soon we decided to head back to the city, but then...

                                          G-guys... I think someone went missing!

                                          Who could that-HEY COME BACK!

                                          I'm more than okay.

                                          Alright, now let's go to, hey do those guys over there have...

                                          Green hair, oh, they must be clowns from a local circus.

                                          "How dare you criticise our clothes!"

                                          *Jessa used kick ass! It's super effective!*

                                          I'm really impressed by how strong you are, Big J!

                                          I'm still really confused why people fuss so much about natures honestly...



                                          Hm, this isn't such a bad cave... Rocks? *takes out Rock smash HM*

                                          I feel sorry for the poor chap who has to learn that!

                                          *Jessa learnt Rock smash!*

                                          You have GOT to be kidding me.

                                          So later, I went around the cave a bit more, and found a Rock tomb TM. Bad BP and accuracy, but does not matter. Saving it. Jessa could make use of that move the most well in the team, considering her ability pretty much gets rid of the trash accuracy.

                                          Now do you regret teaching me a HM?

                                          I ignored her, and soon we made it out of the cave.

                                          Does this place possibly count as a new area? I mean, it's the same route but...

                                          Well, lets just-WOAH, HIGHER LEVELED MONS!

                                          *takes it down* Huh?

                                          Heh, I guess that is kind of interesting.

                                          You look cool Marts!

                                          Yeah yeah. Now onto the next town.

                                          *we healed and then went to the next area*

                                          "Ha, you may have beaten me, but I have a key anyway, so I still win! Ha!"

                                          This dude is obnoxious!

                                          Yeah, I hated him when I played this as a kid. Anyway, lets see what we can get here...

                                          Well, I heard awesome things about Gastrodon, so I guess I would consider making her join the team. And also, remember that Glameow we fought just now?

                                          The team: Yes?

                                          It was level 13. Two thirds of the team are only slightly higher leveled that it! And I remember that there is gonna be a trainer later on with a level SEVENTEEN mon!

                                          You got a plan?

                                          Three words.

                                          Yeah?

                                          Am I the only one who noticed all the males have evolved, but none of the females have?

                                          Don't worry Riz, You'll reach there soon.

                                          But I thought you said you would box me?

                                          Yes, I did, but I am only gonna do that in like say, the far future.

                                          I meant box me for that Shellos?

                                          Well, I eventually made up my mind. If you want to try hard and not complain, I will not box you for her. I work very hard to train you guys! So let me ask you, are you part of the original 6?

                                          Riza evolved into Bibarel!
                                          Yes. Yes, I will.

                                          That's good.



                                          "I want to keep the honey!"

                                          "No, I want to keep the honey!"

                                          *ahem* Riz?

                                          Got it.

                                          *Grunts used lose! It's super effective!*

                                          Hey, look what I found! I think the grunts dropped it.

                                          Wait, a key? *thinks back to earlier* Okay I got it, lets head back to the windworks!

                                          So we headed back to the large building, unlocked the door, kicked grunt ass, and made it to the commander.

                                          "If you win, we leave the building. If WE win, YOU must leave the building!"

                                          Got it. Kill the bat, Kain!

                                          I'm on this. *Ka-shoom!*

                                          "Damnit! Squash him, Purugly!"

                                          Woah man, you really weren't lying to us.

                                          I'll deal with it! *Karate chop x 3*!

                                          "Ha! You think you can beat my giant majesty with that?"

                                          Ugh, that was one powerful scratch attack...ngh.

                                          Just let me take over!

                                          "Ha! you have a lame bird with 60's hair?"

                                          He does not have a bird....

                                          ...he has a bird with INTIMIDATE.

                                          "Wh-no!"

                                          *Martin used quick attack!*


                                          Yep that's a wrap. Give up, you goons!

                                          "..."

                                          Lets hurry back to the center before they catch us!

                                          What for?







                                          Kain evolved into Alakazam!
                                          Hm, two spoons are better than one, I guess.


                                          Hey, how come I don't have bold words?

                                          Oh, sorry, here you go.

                                          Much better.


                                          So anyway, let's head off to that new route...oh hey a Buizel. Go Riz!

                                          I'm on this! *water gun x2*

                                          Ok! Now...







                                          Joshua has no balls left!




                                          .......



                                          Damn....never mind. I already used a Floatzel. Lets buy some more balls.

                                          One trip from the centre later...

                                          Alright. ready to go.

                                          (So we grinded(or ground or whatever it is) a bit more and then headed off into the forest, met some stranger with a Chansey, and continued.)

                                          I can't wait to see what we will get-

                                          Wild Bidoof and Budew appeared!

                                          Ok. I take back what I said.

                                          Not when I'm around.

                                          Got that right.

                                          "Hey mister fight with us!"

                                          Uhh, ok!

                                          "Go, Pachirisu and Beautifly!"

                                          Go, Riza! Use rollout on the bug!

                                          Got it!

                                          Pachirisu! Use spark!

                                          *Bzzt!*Ah! Never mind, I killed the insect!

                                          Good, now, kill the squirrel!

                                          Master, I can't!

                                          Huh?

                                          I'm sorry, but once I use rollout, I can't do anything else...now the bug catcher got a few more- master, I'm sorry...

                                          RIZ! NOO!
                                          What on earth...
                                          I have a bad feeling about this!
                                          *faints*
                                          Weeeeeeep, weeep..
                                          Noooo, please! DON'T DIE!

                                          "Pachirisu! Spark down the beaver!"

                                          *BZZZZT*













                                          Riza fainted!

                                          ****!
                                          Ok, please wake me up from this dream.
                                          No!
                                          *moves up* Huh?
                                          Waaaaaaah!
                                          You son of a ****ing *****.... *jumps up*

                                          I'M GONNA KILL YOU!!!

                                          "EEeek!"

                                          Big J, stop! Ok, sorry about that! *Joshua fled using run away!*






                                          I'm so sorry....

                                          *sniff* I d-doubt we can carry o-on like this...

                                          It's okay. This is all happening for a reason.



                                          Soon, we went to the next city, but since we were bummed about Riza's passing, we immediately headed on to the next areas.

                                          Can Chimecho learn any decent physical attacks?

                                          I don't know, but there is still some nasty redundancy, even if I plan to box Kain.

                                          What was that again?


                                          I-I mean I was actually s-saying I wanted to wrap boxes with Kain!

                                          Okay.


                                          Now, we still have a chance for a replacement at the cave over there. I think the best possible capture would be a Meditite, I guess.

                                          Hey, wait, you say that you didn't want Chingling because it shares the type of a teammate, and then you proceed to say you want a Meditite who shares TWO of our teams types!

                                          Well, the point of Nuzlockes is to live with what you get, so there. I'm sure the monkey thing would have a better chance of surviving than a baby mon.

                                          Ok, good. We will stop here.

                                          Spoiler:
                                          I have 2 DS consoles, so I traded to evolve Kain. You may think its too OP, but if I happened to catch one with a bad nature, I'm gonna need 135 base Sp.attk to make up for that.

                                          ****! This is probably the first 'bad luck' death I've had in a really long while. Sorry if anybody liked her, I suppose everything happens for a reason. Riza will be remembered.

                                          Yes, I am going to train a Meditite. I've used it before in another run, and it's actually quite frail, and it does not help that it evolves so late. But I'm sure evolving would pay off quite a bit, and Azumarill ability is gamebreaking, so I hope Jeannette manages to outlast my previous psychic monkey.

                                          What do you mean?

                                          You JUST entered the gym a few seconds ago!

                                          Should I tell her?

                                          Don't.



                                          Uhh, Joshie, dude?

                                          Huh?

                                          I know you're going to kick up a fit but.. I'm leaving the team.

                                          You are?

                                          I don't know. But my defenses are pretty shoddy compared to everyone else, only to be made worse by your nature. I'll let you have a cut slave on your gang so that you can enter that evil looking building over there.

                                          What buil-oh.



                                          Kain is really kind, huh?

                                          Now, we have no time to lose!

                                          "Well, well, look who we have here!"

                                          Gah, grunts! Gals, quick!

                                          Ready fighting sister?

                                          Eveready.

                                          *fighters used murder grunts! It's super bloody!*

                                          Now, let's get to the commander!

                                          Growww...

                                          What!?



                                          Oh great. Wait, Martin, why did you shove me?

                                          I need to save you guys! *murders the Zubat*

                                          Y'know what? The giant skunk is still a thing.

                                          I have an idea! Marts! Come back! Go Aston!

                                          I'm on this! *CHOP!!* Gah! This night slash is really punishing!

                                          Now Marts, come back!

                                          And so I repeated this another two times, but with other teammates.

                                          Is it me, or is night slash getting weaker?

                                          Hey look, the Skuntank has a scared expression!

                                          Remember dude, I do not have a bird...

                                          I have a bird with INTIMIDATE!



                                          Let's run before their trainer catches us!



                                          All right, I got a new bike, lets-Woah! *zip!*

                                          Oh boy. Let's catch him!

                                          He's heading towards... cycling road? What?

                                          Beats me. But we should still save him.

                                          And so the mons headed onto cycling road, only to see their trainer being attacked by a stranger!

                                          "Hey, bustah, watcha doing in mah road?"

                                          I-I thought this was a public area!

                                          Let go of our trainer!

                                          She's RIGHT! *rams into cyclist*

                                          "OW! You will pay for that!" *sends out Ponyta*

                                          He's really not kidding huh-wait, he's not attacking me?

                                          ARRRGGGHH!! Stop!

                                          Keep attacking, Pestie! I want that Psyduck DEAD!

                                          Shut up you MORON! *wing attacks*

                                          Ah!

                                          Are you alright?

                                          Ahh, these burns are painful...

                                          *stares at Aston* What do you think you were doing ramming into that stranger like that? If you just asked politely, he probably would have given our trainer back, and not send out his overpowered fire horses to attack us!

                                          Ha ha. Your funny.

                                          ****s sake, you are a goddarn STARTER! You should know about EVERYTHING! Did you realise Rachel nearly got murdered by that Ponyta!?

                                          May I ask how you got all this sass? You used to be the quiet one in the team!

                                          That's because we were NEVER in a sticky situation like this!

                                          Ok, FINE! If you want me to kill a Ponyta, watch me do so!

                                          What? No! I never said that!

                                          Ah, look! It's that stupid turtle! Perce, use Ember!

                                          *Perce used Ember! A critical hit! It's super effective! Aston got burnt!*

                                          WHAT!?
                                          What did I get myself into...
                                          Not again.
                                          Holy ****!
                                          Ugh... no..












                                          As the smoke cleared up, what was now visible was a grassy turtle, lying on the ground, covered in burning flames.


                                          Ah, what's going on...

                                          Astie! Dude? What was going on?

                                          J-just go... leave me here....

                                          Dude, we can't! You are the starter! The team's backbone!

                                          Guys.... I'm sorry...

                                          *send him back* We need to kill these Ponytas!

                                          I will deal with them! Quick, go back to the centre!

                                          Ok! Ugh...



                                          Much much later... after horse ass were kicked...

                                          "Sir, we lost sight of that stupid ape and her trainer."

                                          "You guys can't be serious. You got attacked by them a few minutes ago!"

                                          "Y'know what? I don't want to do this 'kill that trainer' thing anymore. That guy was completely innocent-it seemed like he only stumbled onto our road by accident!"

                                          "Huh?"

                                          "Woah, bro, calm down. Really, you can't be serious about this!"

                                          "Oh yes I am!" *kicks mud into older Ponyta's face"

                                          "AGGGHH!!! MY EYES!!!"

                                          "Oh, you so of a-"

                                          *Picks up a heavy rock on the floor and flings it at the cyclist's face at full force*

                                          "OW! **** YOUR DAMN LIFE! GET HIM!"

                                          "I don't think so!" *Kicks fellow Ponyta with his hard hooves at full force, then runs away.

                                          Fun fact: Ponyta's HGSS dex entry states it's hooves are harder than diamonds!

                                          "Ugh...now you tell me!"

                                          "Owie..."

                                          Notes:
                                          Spoiler:
                                          As usual, the grass gym was balls-easy, though the Roserade took surprisingly more hits to kill, and the Turtwig set up reflect in the middle of the fight, so I guess that is also kinda annoying.

                                          Kain had to go. If he had a different nature, he would have stayed on the team longer before getting boxed, but lonely on an already frail special attacker isn't gonna work. Nothing against Alakazam in general, but I already brought one to the league in a previous run, and I want to give other mons a shot.

                                          I indeed tried out the intimidate strategy, and it was a success. The Skuntank was also really derpy at the end. I had Jessa in the lead for the last part, and the thing kept spamming night slash nevertheless, so because of the attack drops, they couldn't do **** unless there was a crit. Jessa also learnt Revenge straight after the skunk was down, and then I kinda realised that could have helped in the battle.

                                          The cycling road part really happened in-game. I had Aston in the lead, and then I came across a cyclist that I must battle, and she(though it's a guy in this run) had nothing but Ponytas. I couldn't use Rachel because she was already badly injured by some Staravias we fought earlier, so I decide to just lead with type disadvantage, because I knew that Grotle are very bulky, made better by Aston's impish nature. But then, the horse used a CRITICAL Ember, and it left Aston with a burn. I had to rely on other teammates to take down the horses.

                                          I'm not telling you what happened to Astie for now. Will he and Rachel survive the burns? Will the cyclist and his remaining horses seek revenge? What is going to happen to the remaining Ponyta? Find out in the next episode of TRBG!

                                          Spoiler:
                                          Well, who is this?

                                          Oh, it's a Gastly I caught off-screen.


                                          Ball the Gastly (F)
                                          Lvl 15, Jolly, Mischievous.


                                          Nature could be worse, I guess. And still, I know that Gastly is ridiculously hard to train in this leg of the game. Probably if we really need her, we will just use the daycare.

                                          "Hey sir, your mons have been healed!"

                                          Good! What's the outcome?

                                          "Your Psyduck is alright, though she has some injuries, so treat her with care! Sadly, your Grotle isn't so lucky. The burns scorched his skin badly, so he will need to undergo operation. Worse, judging from the severity of his burns, it would be a higher chance for him to die during the operation, but we will try our best."

                                          Ok, then. *comes out of the centre with his mons* Really, I don't feel comfortable without my own starter.

                                          "Hey sir!"

                                          Gah! It's that stupid horse!

                                          "No, I'm not going to hurt you guys. I'm going to apologise."

                                          Huh?

                                          "Look, I am sorry for the trouble me and my siblings caused earlier. Our trainer is a complete gangster, and I don't trust him anymore. Thing is, I'm really sorry about what happened earlier, and I would like to ask you, can I join your team?"

                                          Well, alright! You are probably my first encounter in this area. So, What's your name?


                                          Toby the Ponyta (M)

                                          "Hey, do you want to take this egg?"

                                          Uhh, why? Huh-*SHINE!*


                                          Randell the Togepi (M)
                                          Lvl 1, Hardy, Somewhat vain.


                                          It doesn't have any attacking moves and I'm already using one with a better nature. So box.

                                          Hey, this cave looks big, lets go inside!


                                          Ari the Onix (F)
                                          Lvl 20, Hardy, Impetous and silly


                                          She's definitely coming on if Aston really passes away during the operation, though I'm a bit disappointed I got the inferior ability. Though I don't care about this unless about worser abilities unless it really affects the mon in battle.

                                          Dat level!

                                          My thoughts exactly.

                                          Then we got a v.s. seeker and dowsing machine, went into another cave, and then went off to the next route.

                                          Oh, what's that, a Ralts!

                                          *Wild Ralts teleported away!*






                                          Why are we heading to that house?

                                          You'll see...


                                          Evelyn the Eevee (F)
                                          Lvl 20, Mild, Very finicky.


                                          Now, there are choices...
                                          Vaporeon: Nature can work well for it, but type redundancy.
                                          Jolteon: Nature can also work well for it, but it's already quite frail so...
                                          Flareon: See both.
                                          Espeon: Nature is quite good for it, but it's female, there are a lot of female Espeon, and I prefer being different.
                                          Umbreon: Nature is fine for it, but I'm already using it currently.
                                          Leafeon and Glaceon are both out. The nature is bad for the former, and the latter comes too late. And I never liked either of the two as pokes in the first place.

                                          So I guess out of all 7, Jolteon is the most suitable. It doesn't share type redundancy with any team member, the nature betters it's higher special attack, and the speed could help out a bit. Though I must be careful about it's lackluster special movepool, as well as the fact it's defences are also much worse due to the nature.

                                          Yeah, very funny. Geodude, huh? Jessa, you're the one who needs some levelling up, so go!

                                          I'm on it! *chops the rock* Damn, it survived with a sliver of health!

                                          Don't worry, I think you'd be fine as long as the lame pebble doesn't use like, magnitude, or-

                                          "Self-destruct! Hahaha!"

                                          WHAT!?

                                          *Ka-BOOM!!!*















                                          The smoke cleared up, and what was now visible was a Machop carcass, covered in scars.
                                          Jessa fainted!

                                          **** YOUR GODDAMN ****!!

                                          No.

                                          "Hahaha! Why do guys look so serious? Learn to laugh! Haha!"

                                          NO.

                                          "Hahahaha! Not a big deal, come on and-"

                                          NO YOU SENSELESS ****ER!!!

                                          The next scene consists of an enraged chimpanzee causeing concussions on a mountaneer and his rock collection. I will not document that part as it is very violent and mature, in a way that there are very morbid parts. Since I know this forum has a few young members, I will not show this part.

                                          Jessa is gone, and it's all my fault!

                                          Dude, calm down, would ya?

                                          You realise we have a gym to conquer, right?

                                          Marts, you are a genius.

                                          Huh?



                                          So the gang went around the city to search for the leader. She was in the contest hall, and then everyone headed to the gym afterwards.

                                          Okay, I will have Toby and Aston to stomp the gym trainers, since they are underleveled, and Toby could provide a valueble asset against the Mismagius.

                                          What about me? I can hit the Haunter family super effectively with confusion!

                                          I would love to use you, but trust me. I've seen a LOT of Psyduck end their lives at this specific gym, and I don't want that to happen to you.

                                          *insert horse and turtle killing ghosts here*

                                          "Well, well, it looks like you have decided to challenge me!"

                                          Indeed!

                                          "Then why don't you have a full team?"

                                          Agh, don't ask me...

                                          "Very well. Go, Duskull!"

                                          Gobble him up, Aston!

                                          All right! *snap!*

                                          "Dangit! Go, Mismagius!"

                                          Go, Toby! Use Flame wheel!

                                          All right! *boom!*

                                          "Ack! A stupid burn! Mismagius, use Shadow ball!"

                                          Woah! This thing hits like a truck!

                                          Indeed it does! Marts, come out!

                                          All right!

                                          "Ugh! This lame bird is IMMUNE to ghost attacks! Change of plans, Confuse ray!"

                                          Oh no!

                                          Martin is confused!

                                          Martin used Wing attack!

                                          "GOD DAMNIT! This is the most frustrating battle ever! Kill that lame parrot, Haunter!"

                                          Oh phew.

                                          "Curses! I mean, good job on the win."

                                          Heh, no problem.

                                          "Well, I kinda thought you'd lose since well, you don't have a full team.."

                                          Do you want me to explain why I don't have a full team?

                                          "Uh, sure."



                                          "Oh my, poor Jessa! May she rest in peice."

                                          Yeah, I never saw it comming, and I really wanted her to evolve.

                                          "That's really sad. Here, it's your 3rd badge, as well as the Shadow claw TM. I hope you put those to good use!"

                                          Thanks. And so long!

                                          "Bye!"

                                          So the team headed away from the gym, only to meet.....a familiar face

                                          "Hey let's battle! Wreck 'em, Staravia!"

                                          Well, uh okay! Go, Rachel!

                                          All right! *water pulses*

                                          "Ugh, confusion! Switch out!"

                                          I'm impressed by how smart you are.

                                          "Yeah, whatever. Kill her, Roselia!"

                                          Heh, do you realise I was going to use confusion after that?

                                          "SON OF A-"

                                          essa's falling hit me quite hard. To be honest, this isn't the first time I had a Machop get blown up on. I also had a previous 'chop named Joe from my Diamond run. He also died to an exploding Geodude, and at a similar level. Too add, my Machops both had names beginning with 'J'. Are they twins? Or maybe Jessa was his ghost?

                                          I was fearful the ghost gym would not go so well with only 5 teammates and only one counter(Aston's bite, and there isn't even STAB). If Toby didn't burn the Mismagius, or if Martin hit himself in confusion, the battle wouldn't have ended very well.

                                          I could have ended the update at the gym, but I thought the beginning of the rival battle was hilarious, so I decided to show it . Tune in next time for the conclusion!

                                          Look, kid, I survived a super effective STAB move that was CRITICAL and worked on my weaker special bulk. You have every right to believe it is happening.

                                          Aston, don't be rude!

                                          Hey guys, pay attention! He just sent out his starter!

                                          Indeed he has. Get him Marts! Also, be careful, I've seen a Staravia get it's ass whooped by this same Monferno before!

                                          I've got this! *wing attacks*

                                          "Hah, he survived!"

                                          Think again! *quick attack*

                                          "JESUS! DAMN! UGH! HOW DARE YOU!!"

                                          Woah, he's retarded.

                                          I think all rivals are like that.

                                          I DIDN'T KNOW THIS ASSHOLE WOULD BE SUCH A PAIN TO CAP- oh, he's caught now.

                                          Nice nature and all, but was it worth all those balls?

                                          You tell me, we have processed through FIVE routes and despite that you still haven't found a replacement for Jessa!

                                          Well, okay, fine, and-oh look, it's a Chatot, let's......gah. I forgot we ran out of balls.



                                          Soon, night came. The team were starving; they never ate a single meal ever since they STARTED the journey. They all decided to eat the Chatot they encountered earlier. they were lucky they had a fire mon on their side to cook it. However, they all had to share it. Eventually, our 'hero' gave up and decide to head back to the previous city. Jeannette joked about eating Billy, but the team was too tired to laugh. Joshua then decided that the gang will sleep early.

                                          Ugh, we are almost at the centre...

                                          "Hey, son, want a rare 'mon for free?"

                                          Gah, please don't..

                                          "Well, it's not something you had before, and it counts as a new encounter!"

                                          Um, why are you asking me...?

                                          "You see, sir, you seem to have an empty slot in your party, and your team look tired! Want it? Please?"

                                          ....
                                          Okay. I will take that thing.

                                          And anyway, Rachel really killed the rival's Roselia. Risky, but successful. The entire rival battle was still pretty much a joke.

                                          Billy was by far the hardest mon to capture in this run . He broke out of SEVEN balls in a row and then came into the last one. My team was really butchered after catching him. And the Chatot story is true. When I restocked my balls, I went to the next route and that was my first encounter. It escaped from a QUICK BALL, and proceeded to eat up my regular balls. I decided to call quits, because I didn't want to lose Aston(He was tanking up 5-hit fury attacks.), and my other balls were other quick balls and dusk balls, which I did not want to waste.

                                          And not eating since the journey began, yep, poke-logic.

                                          *pokes* Uggh...and WOAH WHO ARE YOU GUYS!?

                                          We are your mons. We were only pretending to be tired, so we decided to do some grinding while you were asleep.
                                          *waves*

                                          Well, I geuss that's fine... *yawn*

                                          Yeah, but chop chop, we have a gym to conquer!



                                          *aerial aces* Take that!

                                          All right! I geuss that's the last gym trainer. Now onto the leader!

                                          "Oh great. Nevermind, I will crush-wait, what happened?"

                                          Marts killed your mons while you were blabbering away. What kind of leader is that?

                                          "Ugh! Nevermind, go Lucario!"

                                          Marts! Use-wait it outsped?

                                          "Force palm!"

                                          Ugh, paralysis, now...huh?



                                          "The time has come..."



                                          Marts? MARTS!?

                                          "Whazzat? Oh, sorry, 'Marts' can't hear you. He's dead."

                                          Marts has the highest attack AND speed on my team. And also he-

                                          "Was your first catch? Whatevs, sometimes your first catch... Can be your WORST catch."

                                          Do you want me to repeat what I just said!?

                                          "Oh I heard what you said, bruh. Marts HAD the best attack and-"

                                          STOP INSULTING MARTS!!

                                          Wha? R-Rachie! STOP!

                                          "Ha, another stupid idiot! *critical drain punch!*"










                                          R-Rach?

                                          Agh...you son of a freakin' *****...

                                          Your bleeding!

                                          "*points gun at Joshua* You must die!"

                                          Ok, what did I ever do to you-*Lucario tackles Joshua, then strangles him*

                                          "I TOLD YOU TO ****ING DIE!"

                                          D-don't hurt him!

                                          "*points gun at Rach* YOU SHOULD DIE TOO!"

                                          *cries*

                                          "YOU ALL ARE COMPLETE WASTES OF TIME, SPACE, AND STUPIDITY, AND ALL DESERVE TO DIE, STUPID IDIOTS!!"

                                          "L-lucs! What's got into you?"

                                          "I WANT TO KILL THESE ****ING ASSDICKS! I WANT THEM TO-*gets shot by police*"

                                          The police?

                                          *raises cell phone* "You can thank me for that."

                                          "Yep, the eagle is right. Anyway, I'm sorry about the inconvenience you all faced. This Lucario will be sentenced to five decent months in jail. I will give the leader a new Fighter to replace Lucario."

                                          "Thank you, Mr. Policeman."

                                          "The trainer will also receive the 3rd badge to make up for the trouble."

                                          Thank you sir.



                                          Thankfully, there were no severe injuries after the assault, so the gang continued with their usual nighttime routine.

                                          Thanks for saving us back at the gym, Marts.

                                          No, I should thank YOU for saving me against that Lucario.

                                          Ha, your really funny. Also, I might ask you, why are you usually so quiet? And why do you always like, trying to protect the team?

                                          Well, do you want me to tell you a secret? I only tell it to ones that I really trust.

                                          A secret, huh? Well, let me guess, did like, well, your mom reject you at birth or-

                                          Close. My mother is DEAD.

                                          Yikes.....sorry about that.

                                          It's alright. She was undoubtfully the best Staraptor in the world. She swept TWO gyms in a row and early wing attack was too boss for words.

                                          Her trainer was unhappy by how a lot of people he's seen box their starter birds before the league. He wanted to show that first catches can be your best bet...but the champion had other plans.


                                          What happened?

                                          My mother got killed by the champion's damn Milotic. It was absolutely unexpected; nobody saw it comming.

                                          Ouch...

                                          I was only a newborn when that happened. I cried for MONTHS. Ever since I have absolutely LOATHED Milotics, and always wished I could burn every single one of them alive.

                                          That is the main reason why I am fighting, helping, and supporting all of you. I want to avenge my mother, and become the most successful Staraptor to go to the league.


                                          Hey, y'know you said that you wanted to burn Milotic alive, right? Well, I'm afraid that's not possible.

                                          Why is that?

                                          Because it's a WATER mon, it resists fire!

                                          Heh, that was actually funny. *yawns* I guess I should get some sleep now.

                                          Hee, yeah. Good night Marts.

                                          Good night Rach.

                                          Notes:
                                          Spoiler:
                                          Man, this update was long. I'm also on holiday, so I make updates using phone and copy+paste, so things kept crashing. Luckilly I learnt how to save by copy+paste onto my notes.

                                          Evil Lucario is evil. In-game, I actually used Aston to finish it off, but I felt that anyone who evolved during grinding should have screentime for the update. I also wanted to create some characterisation between Martin and Rachel.

                                          Speaking of which, Martin's backstory is true. The full story will be revealed... in the FUTURE.

                                          This run will also take a more 'plotty' approach. I wanted this to be a 'play and write' kind of run at first, but now in game, I'm much ahead of the run(7 badges, 3 deaths), so no point rushing through to keep up. Therefore, there will be more teammate interaction and stuff.

                                          And also, before you ask, Kate cannot talk. For plot reasons or not, you just need to find out.

                                          Next up, the NEXT gym.

                                          Wait, we are heading to the next gym ALREADY? We just killed the previous one!

                                          Of course, I did a lot of grinding and stuff, but nobody evolved, and the grinding session was pretty boring, so you don't really need to find things out.

                                          Ya, I get that. Speaking of which, when do I evolve?

                                          Level 37. I was quite shocked myself when I found that out.

                                          "Hey, sir, have you ever felt-"*I punch the man*

                                          Dude, I already finished grinding eons ago. I'm heading to the gym.

                                          "No, but I want to do something cool with your Meditite!"

                                          Wait.... is that an injection?






                                          Jeannette learnt Zen headbutt!

                                          Ugh, thanks a lot, mister!

                                          "No probs! And you can call me the Move Tutor-"*zen headbutts!*

                                          *falls into mud* "WHAT WAS THAT FOR!?"

                                          Good move. Now lets' RUN!



                                          So here's the plan for the gym. I will technically lead with Aston and, uh...

                                          *pokes*

                                          Yeah, you. And everyone else is backup just in case something goes wrong.

                                          So that means you will use me, a fire mon?



                                          Speaking of which, *sniff sniff* I smell something, master!

                                          What?

                                          (We proceeded to kick rival's ass)

                                          "WHY, JUST WHY!?"

                                          Because your an insane weirdo?

                                          Going to have to side with you there.



                                          This is the gym?

                                          Why do you ask?

                                          Because there is nothing but wat-*accidentally presses a button*-er...

                                          "WHO GAVE YOU THE IDEA TO DRAIN MY MAGNIFICENT POOL!?

                                          Er...

                                          "DIE, YOU PUNK!"

                                          Um, dude? My Porygon2 killed your Gyarados while you were yelling. AND she gained Intimidate thanks to Trace.

                                          "YEAH, WHATEVER!"*sends out Floatzel*

                                          (insert shock wave spam here.)

                                          "No, just no. Quagsire, kill her."

                                          *razor leafs* How about no.




                                          Meanwhile, our hero forgot to bring his OTHER 4 mons into the gym with him.

                                          'The great marsh'...?

                                          Lets go inside, shall we?


                                          So that's about it for now. I hope to get the next update up by around next week, or before that.
                                          I hope I am posting in the right place. If this needs to be moved to like the creative section, let me know.

                                            So I have been playing through all the games and I need something new. So I am going to start Omega Ruby Wednesday night and want to see how many people would be interested in choosing my team. We can just use the in-game pokemon, do a wondertrade per new area, or even let y'all trade me pokemon y'all want me to use. We could even do all of these. Of course it'd be a Nuzlocke and I'd be posting photos daily of the game on the thread to keep everyone up to date. Anyone have any input? I really want to do something different with pokemon and have some others involved. maybe even if I find a few other people to play along with in the game and keep up via Skype. (this option would be for those of us above 18 due to obvious reasons.) Let me know what you think and if this interests anyone. Message me here or send me a skype message and we can figure it out!

                                                    I finally got around to continue this.

                                                    Part 5: Two in One

                                                    Spoiler:

                                                    So, Burgh. I've got to say that I quite liked his new gym design and music. His chamber at the top was kind of weird, but okay, I'm not gonna ask. When I fought him, I finally found out why he never actually helped with anything. He's pretty weak.

                                                    I lead off with Sam, which was a dumb choice, because his first Pokémon was a Swadloon. Cue switch to Betty. Instead of the expected Razor Leaf, he just used String Shot. Well, okay. Betty just killed it with a Bug Bite.

                                                    Next up was Dwebble, so now I switched back to Sam. It survived the Razor Shell thanks to sturdy, but instead of attacking, it used Rock Polish. Okay... Burgh, you don't feel like attacking me? He may have heard me, because he used Smack Down now, being faster. Not that it did him any good.

                                                    Now I had to face Leavanny. Boris would be the perfect choice. Burgh was weirdly obsessed with raising and lowering speed in this battle, because he used String Shot yet again. I'm disappointed. What kind of gym leader are you? Okay, whatever. Boris finished the job quickly, winning us the battle and giving Betty the opportunity to evolve. I completely forgot that she evolved through happiness... like apparently half my team did, as I noticed now.

                                                    On our way out of the city, we met the weird Plasma scientist yet again, who may not even be involved with Team Plasma after all from the way he was talking... Was I misinformed? I let him take a look at my Pokémon and agreed to fight him. He made me realize that I didn't have anything useful against steel Pokémon. At least nothing that didn't also have a weakness to electricity. The fight was more of a struggle as Betty's and Bluebell's combined efforts finally brought him down while I had to continuously heal their paralysis. At least Colress shooed away the Crustle so I could continue.

                                                    Exploring the desert, I caught a male Dwebble I called Oliver in the Desert Resort and a Sandshrew in Relic Castle. I considered both of them for the last free spot on the team, but Oliver ultimately won. I've never trained one before and his ability Shell Armor would come in really handy in a Nuzlocke. At least one Pokémon where I didn't have to worry about critical hits. With that, the party was complete and with Mimi magically transforming into a male, Betty was the only female.

                                                    One of the trainers in Relic Castle actually gave me a bit of trouble as his Sigilyph nearly killed Bluebell with a crit, which made me wish he had Shell Armor as well. I really don't want to lose him.

                                                    Before I could reach Nimbasa City, I was stopped by a random guy who just appointed me as the manager of Join Avenue. Okay... entrusting a random stranger with this, why not? Nimbasa City held quite a few battles again. And I could catch some more Pokémon on the surrounding routes.

                                                    Also, I found someone else's Xtransceiver at the amusement park. Apparently some guy called Curtis had lost it and as he called me from a different device, he asked me to keep it for him until we'd meet. Alright, I can do this. I guess his identity is gonna be a big reveal, since he can't/won't show his face, hesitated when he said his name and actually asked me whether I really don't have any idea who he is. It all reminds me a bit of Malva. I guess I'll see who he is eventually. Next up was the gym and if I remember correctly from Black, this might actually be a pain.

                                                    Expecting Elesa to start with Emolga and hoping against the odds that she would use anything other than Volt Switch, I put Oliver to the front. Of course, she Volt Switched anyway, so Oliver's Rock Slide hit her Flaafy instead. However, Oliver had taken way too much damage for my liking and was already in the yellow after only one attack. Why does he have such a horrible special defense? I had to heal him the next turn, while Flaafy used Volt Switch as well, bringing him back into the yellow, and Elesa sent out Emolga again. Well, great. At least I didn't have to worry about critical hits on Oliver. But it was obvious that he wouldn't be able to do anything else in this fight. He may have been faster than Flaafy, but there was no way that he would somehow outspeed Emolga. And I still didn't know what her last Pokémon was.

                                                    I actually took a bit of a risk there by switching in Betty. Emolga most likely had a flying type attack, but I was pretty sure she'd just use Volt Switch again, which she did, dealing minimal damage on Betty. This time, Elesa switched to Zebstrika, which could be just as troublesome if it had Flame Charge. I decided to see what she would use and had Betty use Protect. She actually tried to attack me with Pursuit. Okay, not what I expected. Hoping she'd do the same again, I went for the Bug Bite. She chose Quick Attack this time, which was a stupid idea on her part, since I immediately healed up the bit of damage it did on Betty by stealing her Sitrus Berry. Next turn, she revealed that she had Flame Charge after all, which did a lot but luckily didn't kill Betty. The second Bug Bite defeated the Zebstika.

                                                    Elesa then sent in Flaafy again. I didn't expect it to pose a threat to Betty, so I let her stay in and just healed her. Flaafy paralyzed her. That didn't faze Betty at all, since she just Bug Bit it to death on the next turns after barely being scratched by Flaafy's Take Downs.

                                                    Now, Emolga was the only one left. Since I still expected a flying type move, I then switched to Bluebell. Emolga's Volt Switch did almost nothing and Bluebell defeated it with a single Return. So much for that. When I googled it afterwards, I found out that it didn't have any flying moves after all, but better be safe than sorry.

                                                    All in all, this went much more smoothly than I expected. Now with the fourth badge in my pocket, I made my way over to Driftveil City.
