    SUON'S POTTERLOCKE CHALLENGE
    ON POKMON PLATINUM



    I restarted this game twice already. In both cases, my first Pokmon (Bidoofs) fainted almost immediately after catching them, causing me to black out.

    PROLOGUE: THE DURSLEY ERA


    Spoiler:

    No magic allowed! Don't use any Special moves and no sorting yet, so Pokemon can all fight on one team.

    As always, I start this game by choosing a boy and naming myself SUON. My friend/rival's name is TOM.

    At Route 201 we meet Professor Rowan and his assistant, Dawn. He offers us a Pokmon to start a journey with. I refuse his offer, but he insists that I at least use the Piplup to catch my first Pokmon with. So, after some more introductions and finally receiving some Pokballs, I manage to catch my first Pokmon:


    Neville the Bidoof
    Met at level 3 on route 202

    I catch two more Pokmon:


    Ron the Kricketot
    Met at level 3 on route 201


    Hermione the Starly
    Met at level 2 at Lake Verity

    I train all three of them (Ron can only attack with Bide. Very risky and therefore used a lot of swapping, but I managed without letting him faint) and Ron evolves at level 10 in a Kricketune.

    We reach Jubilife City, receive a Town Map and the Poketch, and meet Looker. Then we head north, out of the city, and catch two more teammates.


    Lucius the Budew
    Met at level 4 on route 204


    Luna the Psyduck
    Met at level 4 in Ravaged Path

    Unfortunately, Lucius only knows a Special Attack move, so for now I can only train him by swapping out until we get our first badge.

    Since we can't go further north, I go back to the city and head east. Here I battle against rival TOM, but without problems. I also catch two more Pokmon:


    Severus the Shinx
    Met at level 4 on route 203


    Dolores the Zubat
    Met at level 5 in Oreburgh Gate

    I make it to Oreburgh, but can't battle the Gym yet. First, I have to find Roark, the Gym Leader. I find him in the mines, where I also catch my 8th partner:


    Olympe the Geodude
    Met at level 7 in Oreburgh Mine

    I can't use any special attacks against Roark, so Luna and Lucius have no advantage. I decide to train first at route 207 and come up with a strategy. Maybe I'll catch a Machop. My first encounter, however, is:


    Ginny the Ponyta
    Met at level 6 on route 207

    Not too bad either. But now I don't have any heavy hitters to beat Roark with ease. So, I guess I'll just have to use some luck.



    THE GYM BATTLE

    My team: Neville, Ron, Hermione, Luna, Severus, Olympe
    His team: Geodude, Onix, Cranidos

    I start with Severus against his Geodude, using Intimidate to lower it's attack. Then, I switch to Ron. The Rock Throw Ron receives does about 40% damage.

    I use 3x Growl to lower it's attack even more and heal when necessary. Now, the Rock Throw don't hurt too much anymore. I give an X Attack to Ron, heal one more time, and start with Fury Cutter.

    After 5 successful hits, Geodude faints. Ron has 7HP left, but healing would've ment that Fury Cutter lost its build up power.

    I keep Ron in the ring when Roark chooses Onix, hoping Ron is fast and strong enough to OHKO him. And indeed, one Fury Cutter is enough to slay Onix.

    Roark sends out Cranidos. I decide to swap Ron now, before his luck runs out, and send out Olympe.

    Cranidos is way faster, but only uses Pursuit. Olympe's Rock Throws do more damage, and therefore we win the first badge without any casualties!


    I'm really enjoying this so far, but that's probably since nobody died yet. I'll play a bit more tonight.

      SUON'S POTTERLOCKE CHALLENGE
      ON POKMON PLATINUM




      1. THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE


      Spoiler:

      Sorting begins! From here on out, Pokemon can no longer switch out for those in different houses.



      And the sorting begins!

      GRYFFINDOR
      Neville the Bidoof
      Dolores the Zubat
      Ginny the Ponyta

      +15 points for Gryffindor

      Huffelpuff
      -

      Ravenclaw
      Ron the Kricketune
      Hermione the Starly
      Lucius the Budew
      Severus the Shinx
      Olympe the Geodude

      +25 points for Ravenclaw

      Slytherin
      Luna the Psyduck

      +5 points for Slytherin

      Interesting...

      We head to the Valley of Windworks to catch our next Pokmon. We run into a Shellos, but I wasn't really paying attention and had Ginny out. Hoping to be able to do some damage, I tackle it, but Shellos immediately replies with a Water Pulse. Ginny survives, merely, but we have to run. No catch here.

      I try to go back to heal, but bad luck hits me. A Buizel appears, with my injured Ginny still out. I run, but Buizel uses Pursuit and kills Ginny without mercy...

      Rest In Peace

      Ginny
      Level 6 - 10

      -5 points for Gryffindor

      I decide to train a bit, before battling Team Galactic, and after a while Neville evolves in a Bibarel, Hermione in a Staravia and Severus in a Luxio.

      BATTLING TEAM GALACTIC


      I defeat the Galactic Grunts with ease, and then challenge Commander Mars.

      My team: Neville, Ron, Lucius, Dolores, Severus, Olympe
      Her team: Zubat, Purugly

      I only needed Olympe. She crushed both Zubat and Purugly with her rockhard body.

      +10 points for Ravenclaw

      I continue my way, and catch 2 new partners:


      James the Shellos
      Met at level 9 on Route 205

      +5 points for Huffelpuff


      Arthur the Buneary
      Met at level 11 in Eterna Forest

      +5 points for Huffelpuff

      Now, with a Chansey which heals me after each battle on my side, this forest could be a great place to train, but the exp isn't that good. There are some trainers though, but that turned out to be even worse. Especially the Pachirisu...

      Rest In Peace

      Dolores
      Level 5 - 13


      Neville
      Level 3 - 16

      -10 points for Gryffindor

      They had to help each other out, since, well, those are the rules. Unfortunately, they couldn't handle electricity well.

      So I fled out of the forest and catch 2 new Pokmon east of Eterna City:


      Harry the Chingling
      Met at level 14 on route 211

      +5 points for Slytherin


      Carlo the Meditite
      Met at level 14 in Mt. Coronet

      +5 points for Slytherin

      THE GYM BATTLE


      My team: Ron, Hermione, Luna, Severus, James, Harry
      Her team: Turtwig, Cherrim, Roserade

      I start with Ron, and finish with Ron. I can write a whole lot about thrilling events, but fact is, Ron just soloed this. Again, he doesn't miss Fury Cutter, building up incredible power and winning our second badge.

      +10 points for Ravenclaw

        SUON'S POTTERLOCKE CHALLENGE
        ON POKÉMON PLATINUM




        2. THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS


        Spoiler:


        A basilisk is running around petrifying students! Any Pokemon afflicted with the SLEEP condition in battle must be boxed at the end of the battle, and cannot be taken out until the 3rd gym badge is obtained.

        With the 2nd badge in my pocket, I head to the Team Galactic Building and start beating up Grunts. Unfortunately, one's Kadabra turns out to be very troublesome, and kills my beloved Hermione with a powerful Psybeam!

        Rest In Peace

        Hermione
        Level 2 - 20

        -5 points for Ravenclaw

        Hurt, but more determined then ever, we continue our way.

        BATTLING TEAM GALACTIC


        My team: Olympe, Ron, Lucius, Luna, Harry, Arthur
        Her team: Zubat, Skuntank

        Once again, this is a Olympe game. Her Rock/Ground typing is too strong for Jupiter's Pokémon. As a reward, Olympe evolves in a Graveler!

        +10 points for Ravenclaw

        I get a bicycle and can go south now. On the bridge are a lot of trainers, perfect for some leveling. But, very unexpected, we had to say farewell to another valuable team member:

        Rest In Peace

        Severus

        The Ponyta from one of the trainers decided to totally ignore its -1 attack stat, and OHKO'd Severus with a Flame Wheel.

        -5 points for Ravenclaw

        But, they say when one door closes, another one opens, and I catch a new team member on the same route.


        Hagrid the Machop
        Met at level 19 on route 206

        +5 points for Huffelpuff

        Not much later I meet with Dawn, who gives me an Item Finder App and, most importantly, a VS. Seeker. This is definitely a valuable item if I want to keep rotating my team.

        In the grass patch before Hearthome City I catch another team mate:


        Bellatrix the Ralts
        Met at level 17 on route 208

        +5 points for Gryffindor

        After Harry and Carlo, Bellatrix is my 3rd Psychic-type. That doesn't normally happen to me in Nuzlockes... Let's see how I'm gonna use them in my team.

        I do a lot of training using the VS. Seeker, and Lucius, happy fellow as he is, evolves in a Roselia. I accidentally overlevel Luna (Slytherin), and therefore she'll be benched for the next gym match. And unless things change dramatically in the future, I think Arthur is gonna be nothing more than my HM Slave.


        THE GYM BATTLE


        My team: Ron, Lucius, Olympe, James, Hagrid
        Her team: Duskull, Haunter, Mismagius

        I don't have any super effective moves I can use, so I'll just have to rely on pure force. I start of with Lucius and a GrassWhistle, which hits at the first try. I set up a few Growths and then hit with Giga Drain. Duskull faints immediately. Haunter doesn't, but it's close. She uses a Confuse Ray, and then heals the second round. Despite confusion, I use another Growth during her healing turn, and use Giga Drain again, this time KOing Haunter. Also Mismagius can't fend off Lucius' powerful Giga Drain, and the third badge is therefore mine!

        +10 points for Ravenclaw

          SUON'S POTTERLOCKE CHALLENGE
          ON POKÉMON PLATINUM




          3. THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN


          Spoiler:


          Sirius Black is on the loose and all Hogsmeade trips are banned! The PokeMart cannot be used until the next gym badge is obtained.

          I've got 3 badges now and new rules are into play. But of course, I forgot to plan and never went to the shop before I got the badge...

          I continue my way. In the gate East of Hearthome I get surprised by Rival Tom. I still have Lucius first, which means I can fight with Ron and Olympe too, and win the fight without any casualties.

          On route 209 I fail to catch a new partner since I only run into dupes (I have a bit of an unwritten rule that after 3, 4 dupe encounters in a row, I can't catch anything in that route). In the Lost Tower however, I do find a new Pokémon:


          Nick the Gastly
          Met at level 19 in the Lost Tower

          +5 points for Gryffindor

          Everything seems to go pretty well. I beat a few trainers, and catch 2 more Pokémon:


          Dobby the Unown (R)
          Met at level 21 in the Solaceon Ruins

          +5 points for Ravenclaw


          Sirius the Scyther
          Met at level 19 on route 210

          +5 points for Huffelpuff

          But it doesn't last long until tragedy strikes yet again. And entirely my fault. Somewhere in my mind I thought I wasn't supposed to change my lead Pokémon in Trainer battles (rules for the next chapter) and therefore still had Lucius out. And then I ran into a double battle against a Ponyta and a Rapidash...

          Rest In Peace

          Lucius
          Level 4 - 29

          -5 points for Ravenclaw

          Lucius was such a happy fellow and a vital member of the team. This run is certainly getting harder and harder.

          At route 215 I get lucky with a single Pokéball:


          Minerva the Abra
          Met at level 19 on route 215

          +5 points for Gryffindor

          I'm almost in Veilstone City now, just one battle left. A double battle...

          Rest In Peace

          James
          Level 9 - 26

          -5 points for Huffelpuff

          The double battles in this game are killing us. Literally! I could only use Hagrid, Severus and James against the 6 Pokémon in this battle. James was not strong enough to survive and sacrificed his life to assure a win.

          I did reach Veilstone with a new Pokémon, however. Hagrid evolved in a Machoke.


          THE GYM BATTLE


          My team: Sirius, Hagrid, Harry, Luna, Ron, Olympe
          Her team: Meditite, Machoke, Lucario

          To be honest, I did remember which Pokémon she would use, but not what levels. I actually thought they would be of a little lower level, otherwise I would have trained a bit better.

          Anyway, I started the fight with Sirius and OHKO'd her Meditite. She sends out Machoke, which surprised me and got me thinking that it probably knows a Rock attack, so I swapped to my own, Hagrid. I time Revenge and Seismic Toss right to KO his Machoke. Her last Pokémon, Lucario, uses one Force Palm, which leaves Hagrid with 3HP, but our Revenge OHKO's Lucario, enough for badge #4!

          +10 points for Huffelpuff

            SUON'S POTTERLOCKE CHALLENGE
            ON POKMON PLATINUM




            4. THE GOBLET OF FIRE


            Spoiler:


            Pick a Triwizard Champion from Hogwarts. This Pokemon must lead in every trainer battle, including the Gym Leader's. If this Pokemon dies, pick another Champion.

            There's actually not much happening between the 4th and the 5th badge, except for some new routes to catch new Pokmon, and new trainers to battle. I still had Sirius out in the first trainer battle, so he's the Triwizard Champion.

            The Pokmon I catch:


            Molly the Houndour
            Met at level 24 on route 214

            +5 points for Ravenclaw


            Garrick the Girafarig
            Met at level 26 at Valor Lakefront

            +5 points for Ravenclaw


            Katie the Wingull
            Met at level 25 on route 213

            +5 points for Gryffindor


            Fleur the Buizel
            Met at level 23 on route 212

            +5 points for Gryffindor


            Alastor the Pichu
            Met at level 21 in Trophy Garden

            +5 points for Ravenclaw


            Some great additions, especially type wise.

            Sirius battles many trainers around, but I skip as many as possible for after the gymbattle. Nonetheless, Sirius is now of a way higher level. The grass on route 214 however, is a great place to train Luna, and she evolves in aGolduck.

            After I've conquered the next gym, I'll probably be grinding like hell again...

            In front of Pastoria's Gym, Tom challenges me to a battle. His Staravia is dangerous and almost killed both Sirius and Hagrid, but with some potions they barely survive. His other Pokmon are thankfully manageable.



            THE GYM BATTLE


            My team: Sirius, Hagrid, Harry, Luna, Ron, Katie
            His team: Gyarados, Quagsire, Floatzel

            Of course, I start off with Sirius. His Gyarados has Intimidate, so my attack is lowered by one stage. I decide to use 6 Double Teams and heal where necessary. Gyarados seems to possess excellent accuracy however, and keeos hitting me with Waterfall. I keep healing and Wing Attacking until it finally faints.

            Sirius stays in battle against Floatzel, which is faster. Double Team finally pays off, because they never manage to get a hit with Ice Fang, while I keep attacking with Wing Attack.

            Quagsire misses his first Rock Tomb, but one hit could possibly kill Sirius, so I swap to Hagrid, who easily gets the job done. Another victorious gymbattle, and finally a chapter without casualties!

            +10 points for Huffelpuff

            Spoiler:

            I'll be rotating my team regularly. Since that means my team of 6 constantly changes, I'll mention them all, first caught first.

              Unfortunately, after 57 hours and 39 minutes of playing, I failed this challenge... :(

              Tragedy struck a few times in the "Order of the Phoenix"-chapter, where I wasn't allowed to use any items.

              First, I did a lot of grinding after I got the 5th badge. The VS Seeker is a fantastic item for this, and so are some routes with decent Pokémon for experience. When I had a few teammembers up to a decent level, I continued to go north of route 210. Here is where I fought Ace Trainer Ernest and lost 3 of my Ace Pokémon:
              - Garrick the Girafarig @lvl 34
              - Molly the Houndoom @lvl 35
              - Hagrid the Machoke @lvl 35

              This meant I had to go back, get new Pokémon out of the PC, and go back to training again. After more hours of grinding, I went on and reached Celestic Town, where I fought against Team Plasma's Cyrus. I lost 3 Pokémon again:
              - Bellatrix the Gardevoir @lvl 39
              - Nick the Haunter @lvl 40
              - Fleur the Floatzel @lvl 39

              Now I'm at a point that I only have 2 or 3 decent Pokemon left, all from a different house, so I again need training. But, I'm a bit fed up with the routes and trainers I fought for hours and hours, and thought I could train at Iron Island. Just before Canalave City, I fight a fisherman with 4 Remoraid an a Gyarados, who kills Luna the Golduck @lvl34.

              I proceed, but I totally forgot about Rival Tom, challenging me at the bridge in Canalave City. I had no change, especially not without items:
              - Sirius the Scyther @lvl 42
              - Olympe the Graveler @lvl 31
              - Arthur the Buneary @lvl 31
              - Carlo the Meditite @lvl 26
              - Narcissus the Wooper @lvl 26
              - Alastor the Pichu @lvl 25

              I will restart this challenge, it's fun, but I won't get too detailed in my posts anymore since it feels like I'm the only one playing right now and I'm just spamming updates.

                I always heard Platinum was hard on Nuzlockes, but never tried it for myself. Looks like it lived up to its reputation. :(

                For what it's worth, it was entertaining! (The Nuzlocke, that is, not the sudden death...)
