    No items outside of battle that aren't TMs. Well then, looks like we're off to a fantastic start. Other curses getting thrown into the mix will likely just make things harder for me, but we'll see how things go. Without further delay, let us begin.

    Episode 1 - Super Spooky Mansion Time
    Spoiler:

    Current Curses: Cursed Bag - No items outside of battle (except TMs)

    Well, it's been a while since I've played through Black 2 and White 2, so this should be a time and a half. Anyway, after the usual starting stuff and things, I decided to go with Oshawott as my starter. Even if I get screwed over by a curse that forces me to stop using my starter, I'll at least have an HM slave for Surf and Waterfall if I need it. Also, I normally go for the Water starter, so...yeah. Anyway, beating up John's Snivy was a thing that happened and then we were on our way.

    Sure, I should've probably bought some Potions before leaving Aspertia City, but we like to live dangerously, and I want to save my money for item buying before the gym leader. Anyway, after Bianca's little tutorial and Alder's chat, we're off to possibly catch a second team member because I have a feeling something will ruin my run even further, so it doesn't hurt to be prepared. Although, the first couple of routes have nothing worthwhile, so I'll be waiting until Floccesy Ranch to catch a second team member.

    After nearly reaching Lv. 10 on my starter by looking for a Mareep at Floccesy Ranch, I stumbled upon a Riolu instead. To be honest, this is fine for my team, and it's rare that I get the chance to use Lucario, so I decided to take it. Took about half my Poke Balls, but since I doubt I'll be catching anything else until after the first gym, tossing a few Poke Balls is no big deal. Now, to do some grinding before I fight John again.

    So...while I was grinding, I looked into Riolu's level up moves, and I swear they delibrately made it worse by switching Feint and Force Palm's learn points with each other for B2/W2, probably because the first gym is Normal type and Riolu can actually just break it if it learned Force Palm at Lv. 11. Also, Riolu has a 5% encounter rate, but I ran into three of them before finding one Mareep. Anyway, with that aside, it's time to face off with John again...and he was still easy. All it took was spamming Tackle with Braev, which is what I named my Oshawott.

    Anyway, with John beaten again, it's time to go search the ranch for items, battles, and a missing Herdier. While I do manage to score another Potion, a spare Poke Ball, and John gives me a Paralyz Heal, we end up running into...the vengeful spirit of one of the Team Plasma members I destroyed in my Black Nuzlocke, trying to steal a Herdier. Sure, I get a free Frustration TM out of the meeting and he escapes deeper into the mansion to haunt me more later, the problem of the moment is solved, and it's back to Alder in Floccesy Town.

    So Alder has us fight basically experience fodder, and while on our way back to Aspertia City, he hands over some Oran Berries I can use to heal during the gym leader. Speaking of which, the time has come to tackle the first gym. With a party of two, let's see how we fare.

    Gotta love how Gen 5 gyms give you free Fresh Water when you first go in. Anyway, the trainers were cleaned up by Anubis pretty easily with a little help from Braev, so...they were meh. After a trip to the Pokemon Center, the time has come to face off with Cheren. While his Patrat does a lot with Tackle after one Work Up, Braev managed to handle it, even if he had to use his berry. As for the Lillipup, I figured it would be "spam Quick Attack to win," so I used an X Attack I had picked up somewhere. Since I knew he would go for Work Up, though, I tried to get him with the Counter only for him to go for a second Work Up. Afterward, all it took was for Anubis to tank a Tackle, eat her Oran Berry, and obliterate the Lillipup with Counter.

    All in all, outside of Anubis getting crit by the second trainer's Patrat, the first gym was overall very easy, even without Force Palm. And since there's only one way forward, our investigation will proceed...to Room 7. Let's see what curse awaits us next.

        Here I was hoping to teach Double Team to Revenant to abuse Generation 1 even further but TM's are now banned. Anyways, the battle against Giovanni was surprisingly simple. I opened with Valkyrie who has a distinct advantage over Dugtrio because hes immune to all of his offensive attacks. Only thing that affects him is Sand Attack so after spending 8 turns using Sand Attack to reduce Dugtrio's accuracy to -6 stages, I decide to whittle down Dugtrio's hitpoints with a couple Quick Attacks that unfortunately miss because Sand Attack in reverse sucks. I keep trying but ultimately I get to -6 on Accuracy too. So I stubbornly try for another five turns to land a hit but to no avail. I ultimately decide that its time to swap to my sweeper in Patrick so he comes in as Dugtrio goes for a Dig attack. He pops up and misses thanks to Valkyrie's accuracy reduction. I then start using Double Team to power up Patrick while also making him harder to hit since Accuracy and Evasion stack. After successfully getting 6 Double Teams(effectively doubling Attack, Defense, Speed and Special), I unleash a Surf attack that OHKO's Dugtrio. Against Giovanni's Persian, the only thing that concerned me was that it knew Double Team but having normal attacks against a Rock Pokemon meant that I had the clear cut advantage. So I used Rock Slide and OHKO'd the wily cat Pokemon. Against Nidoqueen, Nidoking and Rhydon, Surf did wonders. I claimed the Earthbadge and will await my final curse. I will investigate the box in 666. While I await my fate for my Elite Four run, I went to my favorite training ground on Cycling Road and level'd to 65 for my run.


        Valkyrie Level 65
        Wing Attack
        Sand Attack
        Quick Attack
        Fly


        Revenant Level 65
        Hypnosis
        Dream Eater
        Psychic
        Night Shade


        Shauna Level 65
        Growth
        Razor Leaf
        Leech Seed
        Toxic


        Patrick Level 65

        Strength
        Surf
        Double Team

        Room 7? If you started in the room 2, you can only move to 14 or did I missed something?
        BlissyMKW is lost??
        You decided that you want to go to the room 7, but there is no way to get there without going to room 14 first... I'll just put another curse on you for making me check the map and posts again...


        There is just one weird statue. After further investigation, you found a lever on its back. Do you dare to touch it?

        Or you can continue to the rooms 7, 31 or 21.

        You slowly approach the window. You can see a room where you were just a moments ago.

        Suddenly a pair of ghostly hands appears! It sucks you into the glass! For a while, you're floating through weird reverse dimension and then you're thrown back to the Mansion's reality.


        You're standing in the whole new room. There is only a TV and statue to investigate, but the TV doesn't seem to work. You walk closer to it and a ghostly hand appears again and slaps one Pokéball on your belt.

        Or you could go up to the room 5. You could also go down, but that lead back to room 31 and I forbid you to go there again.

        I really like your team. Do you plan on using both Psyduck and Golduck on the team?
        on154288's decision!
        "Wise choice". Familiar feeling of the curse being lifted runs through your body.

          ...I am very dumb. And now with that extra curse, we can proceed to watch the game screw me over at every possible turn with bad encounters. All we need now is every other required nuzlocke rule and then the despair party will really start. Virbank City, please be gentle.

            Update #1
            Spoiler:
            After asking if I was allowed to use a different starter, pending it not by game breaking.
            As well as getting the confirmation that it would be fine. I started my b2 run.

            I picked Tegpig giving my rival Oshawott.
            However I changed Tegpig into Misdreavus. I named my Misdreavus Specter.
            Having a ghost type against Oshawott made defeating my rival fairly easy.
            I knew the first gym would be difficult, being that all of those mons know Bite. Especially being this is the challenge mode built into b2.
            Psywave has an 80% chance to hit, but really feels like 20% chance to hit.

            After talking with Alder and watching my Rival spazz over a missing mon.
            I leveled Misdreavus to lv 14.(confuse ray)
            Challenged the gym, fought the first trainer and realized after defeating him. This won't be high enough.
            Nuzlocke rules aren't in effect so I left the gym and leveled Specter to lv 16.
            Went back in the gym and got really lucky with confuse ray. Otherwise I most-likely wipe on Cherens Lillipup.
            Pidove kept using work up. The one time confuse ray worked. It took itself out 1hitko.
            First gym down. I await my second curse.



            Specter lv 17
            Astonish
            Psywave
            Spite
            Confuse Ray

              Spirit Shackle was in a hurry, screwed up and sent you to the room 666, where you were and were present in the box opening. The valid actions to do from room 69 were to go to the rooms 26 or 17 or interact with the bed. OR we could go with the box opening, but that would have pretty much same effect as the last time. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

              You continue your journey and find yourself in the pretty crowded room. There are two teleports and a statue in the corner of the room. You can interact with any of those things if you like. Or you could leave to the room 14.

              Oh and your new curse arrived! I hope you're SET on the completing the run.

              You know you're late and everyone is probably already at the end, but you still enter the Mansion.

              As you enter the first room, a ghost of a woman appears. You're ready to send your partner to fight you, but you can't reach your Pokéball. Is it even on your belt? The curse has find you!

              Anyway, you can run from the ghost to the room 29.

              That's an interesting question... I would say that if you want to make the run harder, pick one with the non-banned type. But I don't see a problem with using Psychic-Type if you feel like you need it.

                Ah no biggie. I’ll go to Room 26 then.

                  After little bit of wandering, you end up in the room with a couch and a armchair...


                  There is also a curse lying on the floor, so you pick it for yourself.

                  It has been a while since you relaxed, so maybe you could sit on the couch? Or you can leave to the room 5 or go back to the room 69, but why would you do that?

                  "First thing - congratulations! Second thing - Your price is that your post will no longer be tagged as spam (honestly I have no idea why is this happening).

                  Lastly, there is one more decision to make: Will you lift one curse you have from all the players that also suffer from it OR would you rather put one of your curses on few random players?"

                  As you're leaving after your answer, Absol stops you: "Don't leave just yet. You might be finished with the run, but Mansion is not finished with you..."

                  And Chimecho appears out of nowhere!

                    Not one to complain but... when my curses were re-done, my starter(Electric), Ninetales(Fire) and planned Surf-bearer in Lapras(Water&Ice) were banned from use. That left me with my 2nd(Pidgeot), 3rd(Sandslash) and 5th(Haunter) Pokemon left on my roster. If we slide them down the list, Pidgeot would become first, Sandslash would be second and Haunter would be third. Meaning for this final curse, Bulbasaur would have been #4 and I swapped Sandslash for Rhyhorn(who has since evolved into Rhydon) since it was the only Pokemon who could use Strength and Surf. If this curse was to disqualify Rhydon... um how exactly would I finish the game when I need Strength and Surf to reach Victory Road? XD If its Venusaur(or in this case Shauna) that is disqualified, that definitely makes things harder... but not impossible. I'm going on the assumption its Venusaur(Shauna) disqualified because, as I mentioned, I can't complete the game without Rhydon(Patrick).

                    So Shauna gets boxed into the PC and I challenge the Elite Four with just 3 Pokemon. Before getting there though, the 2nd to last battle with Blue and Victory Road was relatively uneventful with Revenant as my ace in the hole. Something about being immune to Blue's Sandslash(until the final battle) makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Put so many foes to sleep before using Dream Eater or swapping to Patrick/Valkyrie for the sweep made it all the easier. After surviving and healing up, I stockpile Full Restores and Max Revives for use in between Elite Four matches. I can't use items during battle but I'm not barred from replenishing myself in between(and with three Pokemon, I better not be). Before challenging the Elite Four, I opted to round out the team at level 70 seeing as everyone was level 67 by the time I finished getting through Victory Road(and every bit of leveling will help).

                    Anyways, here's how the Elite Four and Champion bout went down:

                    Lorelei: Without Shauna, I had only one Super Effective Counter against her in Patrick. However, Patrick would be crushed by Water attacks so I had to do some set-up. I opt to open with Revenant who immediately puts her Dewgong to sleep. I then swap to Valkyrie who puts three Sand Attacks into it to reduce its accuracy before swapping back to Revenant just as it wakes up from its slumber. I put it back to sleep with Hypnosis and switch in Patrick. I then manage to get up 3 Double Teams before it wakes up and thanks to Accuracy and Evasion stacking, her attempts at hitting me with Bubblebeam are all for nought. I finish maxing my Evasion and go to work on her Ice Types by unleashing one Rock Slide after another. Soon enough her entire team is swept aside.

                    Bruno: This match was all about Ghost > Fighting. As for the Onix, I put them to sleep and disposed of them with Dream Eater. The only Fighting Type that posed any real threat was Hitmonchan for knowing Elemental punches as opposed to Fighting Type moves. I quickly KO'd him with Hypnosis/Dream Eater combination and repeated it on Hitmonlee. Against the 2nd Onix, I repeat the Hypnosis/Dream Eater effect so as to avoid getting hit by Earthquake. Against Machamp, I had a little fun by KOing it with Night Shade lol. None of its attacks had any effect muwhahahah.

                    Agatha: Again Revenant shined in this battle and by saving Psychic's PP, I managed to sweep her team in no time flat. The level difference really did help a lot here.

                    Lance: This was pure strategy here since Gyrados is a real pain. However, Revenant solves that problem by being immune to Hyper Beam so I open with Hypnosis. It fails and Gyrados attempts to attack with Hyper Beam, only to miss harmlessly. I then manage to put it asleep on the 2nd round before swapping to Valkyrie to reduce its Accuracy with Sand Attack. After reducing its accuracy five times, I swap to Patrick just as Gyrados wakes up. Being a Rock Type Pokemon, its resistant to Hyper Beam and only has to fear Hydro Pump. Thanks to the five Sand Attacks, nothing lands on Patrick as he's powering up with Double Team. Once at +3 Evasion, I KO Gyrados with a Rock Slide. The first Dragonair has two electric attacks to go along with Slam and Hyper Beam. Being immune to both Electric moves and resistant to the other two, I simply dispose of this Dragonair with Strength. The second Dragonair is a bit more dangerous due to knowing Ice Beam and Bubblebeam but thanks to +3 Evasion, I'm able to KO it without getting a scratch. The speed demon Aerodactyl is next and it tries to Hyper Beam me but misses. It quickly falls to a bout of Surf. Finally, Dragonite. Level 62 whopper but has just one move that scares me in Blizzard. Thankfully, its accuracy sucks so when it attempts to use it, it misses. I then OHKO it using Rock slide.

                    Blue: Being the final battle, I open with Valkyrie because Sandslash knows Earthquake and I don't want to risk losing either Revenant or Patrick to the Super Effective move. In exchange for knowing Earthquake, Blue's Sandslash forget's Swift so this makes the final battle all the easier to exploit. I open with Sand Attack x 6 and he lands a Poison Sting that thankfully doesn't poison and a Fury Swipes that does minor damage. He then proceeds to miss on three Slash attacks before I swap to Revenant and put Sandslash to sleep. I then swap to Patrick and power up with Double Team(with the PP dropping to zero after maxing out). I then KO Sandslash with Surf. Against Alakazam, pure strength was the recipe here and no amount of Recover will stop me from victory. His Exeggutor was a pain as it nearly Leech Seeded me but after a couple Strength attacks, it fell. Cloyster was next and I ran over it with a Rock Slide. I repeat the process against Ninetales but run out of Rock Slide PP. It doesn't matter because the hard part is now over. Blue's Jolteon stands no chance with Thunder, Thunderbolt, Quick Attack and Pin Missile as its options. It falls to a Strength attack and I claim victory.

                    Final Team:


                    Valkyrie Level 70
                    Wing Attack
                    Sand Attack
                    Quick Attack
                    Fly


                    Revenant Level 71
                    Hypnosis
                    Dream Eater
                    Psychic
                    Night Shade


                    Patrick Level 72
                    Rock Slide
                    Strength
                    Surf
                    Double Team

                    I'll sit on the couch as my final act :)

                      Update #2
                      Spoiler:

                      I arrived in Virbank city and caught a .
                      Leveled it to 19 and challenged Roxie.
                      Her Koffing wasn't such an issue as Specter's confuse ray hit every turn.
                      Neither was her Grimer.
                      Unfortunately her lv19 Whirlipede was a different story.
                      Thankfully Nuzlocke rules aren't in place or I'd be finished as confuse ray never worked. And rollout is a strong move.
                      I beat her my second go-around as rng didn't ruin me.


                      Bruno lv 19

                      Reversal
                      Ember
                      Helping Hand
                      Flame Wheel

                      Specter lv 21

                      Astonish
                      Psywave
                      Spite
                      Confuse Ray

                      The statue looks creepy, and teleport pads bring back memories of Silph co.
                      I'll go to room 14.

                      You lay on the couch, waiting for a well deserved sleep. Instead, you have nightmares about all the things you have witnessed in the Mansion.

                      Then you wake up in different room. There is Absol standing right in front of you.

                      "Before you leave, there is one choice to make: Put 2 more curses on one random player OR would you rather do nothing and have some more sleep?"

                      Okay, it's time to move! You turn right and go to the next room. There is only one creepy statue in the middle of the room. Seriously, what's the deal with all these statues?

                      You decides to take a break and eat something, but when you open your backpack, all the items are gone... The curse is on it again...

                      Anyway, you can investigate the statue here OR go to the rooms 31 or 21. Or to the room 2, but that would be pointless...

                        Mansion Extravaganza in Pokémon Ultra Moon




                        PART 3

                        Yay, this was fun! The curse really shuffled with my planned team. I boxxed Harry immediately after booting up the game. And I spent about half an hour evolving Igor to Alakazam.

                        Now, what Pokémon should I replace him with? I decided to go with Morelull. And because it was almost night in the real life (which means day in Ultra Moon) I had to rush the beginning of the Akala Island with only Fester and Igor. I was also surprised that Lana's Trial starts right when you step in the Brooklet Hill. So I had to complete it before catching Morelull.

                        The Trial itself was pretty easy as I had newly evolved Charjabug. I love this Pokémon's design even more now when I could see its animations.

                        Anyway I was able to catch Morelull and nicknamed her Elvira and then return to Melemele Island and caught Tentacool - nicknamed Norman.

                        With my new members, I wasn't feeling like grinding and so I've moved to the Wela Volcano Park... And it was huge mistake. I didn't realize that 3/4 of my team are in disadvantage in the next Trial and how hard can that Alolan Marowak with Thick Club hit. I got steamrolled by the Totem Marowak on the 1st try. So I didn't grind again and went against it for the second time. And it was really close this time. I started with Norman and it survived with 8 HP after 1 Flame Wheel form the Totem Pokémon. I used Hydro Vortex and took down about 1/4 of Marowak's HP. Norman fainted next round and I sent out Igor and almost took Marowak down, but ti still survived with HP in the red zone. At this point, I thought I'm going to lose again. But then I realized that I was given Revives at one point of the game and so I used one on Igor and was able to finish Alolan Marowak and complete the Trial.

                        And so I think I'll just move to the room 17 for now AND I REALLY HOPE NEXT CURSE IS NOT LIGHT'S END, BECAUSE THAT WOULD REALLY SCREW MY WHOLE TEAM!!!

                          I want to lift Starter-lock hex from all players. Gettting their starter locked is really sad since it usually the Pokemon you used the most though the journey.
                          and hi CodeHelmet, look like you made it here too. (how can you train your pokemon so fast anyway)
                          P/S: Shouldn't you edit the first post as well?

                            Well, now that we're even deeper in the soup than before, let's move onto...

                            Episode 2 - Super Spooky Poison Party

                            Spoiler:
                            Current Curses: Cursed Bag - Want to use items outside of battle barring TMs? Well, sucks to be you.
                            First Encounter Clause - It's a nuzlocke without being a nuzlocke


                            So, stepping into Room 14 (not 7 because I totally graduated without the ability to read numbers correctly), we are faced with a disastrous problem. Now that I can only get one encounter per area with the fact that I kinda have to catch stuff due to potential curses that can forcibly remove team members, I have to roll the encounter dice and pray to Arceus that I get something viable for lategame, and since earlygame is flooded with bad mons, I have to get lucky. Even worse, I get three encounters before the end of Virbank City gym. Anyway, complaining aside, let's move on. I saved after beating Cheren, so let's get back in there and do our thing.

                            So after getting out of the gym, a wild Bianca appears and gives me the almighty, totally usable outside of battle Return TM, which will be perfect for Anubis when her happiness gets high and she evolves into Lucario...oh, and I guess we also get a C-Gear and Bianca has a reunion with Cheren, but who honestly cares about that? Believe it or not, Bianca will actually be useful to me in order to check when my Riolu is ready to evolve...but I can't use Rare Candies, so that sucks.

                            Anyway, with that out of the way, I went and healed up, and it was back to Floccesy Town for the final time. Of course, we get interrupted by Bianca to get the Habitat List, a feature that sort of came back in OR/AS, but never saw the light of day again, almost like horde battles, which was, in my opinion, a more effective EV training method than the SOS method of Sun and Moon...but we're not here to discuss competitive training preferences. At least Anubis has Force Palm now, so that will up my firepower a lot until she evolves. Now, onward to Virbank City, and potential encounters.

                            So after a father daughter dispute and a heal at the Pokemon Center, it's time to scout Virbank City and...that other area near Virbank for encounters. At least I wish I could say that but it turns out that the only grass in the general area is Virbank Complex outside and then the complex proper, so that means whatever I get, I either catch it or I get no new team member at all this episode. Let us hope, pray, and get our BlessRNGs ready.

                            I got a Growlithe from the grass inside the complex proper, and to be honest, I'm fine with this encounter. A Fire type would be nice for my team to cover for Grass types, and Roxie just so happens to have a Whirlipede as an ace. All in all, he can get some good milage, so I caught him and named him Blaze. Now that I have Blaze, it's time for the next step, and that is Audino grinding to prepare for the gym, especially now that I have a new addition to the team. So, let's do it!

                            Alright, so after a lot of running back and forth waiting for shaking grass, we're back. Braev finally evolved and learned Razor Shell, Blaze is caught up and has Flame Wheel, and Anubis is Lv. 19 because she will be seeing no action in the gym. She also got Copycat, but eh, Copycat sucks. Anyway, I took the chance to take care of business at Virbank Complex in order to fill up the wallet a little more, along with get the Thief and Rock Smash TMs...not that I'll be using either of them.

                            So with everything else done, all that remains is the gym, which should be fairly easy for the combined efforts of Blaze and Braev. Anyway, in the span of two battles, I got poisoned twice and had to use a Super Potion, all because of Poison Gas, the first guy's Koffing getting a crit Tackle, and more Poison Gas from the second Koffing. I don't want to go back and buy more Antidotes because that money can be saved for items later, so we're just gonna fight Roxie with what I got using Braev in the lead.

                            I was expecting to be poisoned turn 1...but the Koffing just died because Braev crit it with Razor Shell. I mean, I'm not complaining. Also, I honestly forgot Roxie only has two mons instead of three, so I was a bit surprised when she was sending in Whirlipede next. Blaze hit it like a truck after the Protect, but I got a low roll and didn't kill, giving her a chance to heal. The second time around, I still didn't kill, and with a third Flame Wheel, it went down, but not before poisoning me with Poison Point because of course it does. Either way, I still won. Venoshock is 100% useless to me right now, though, so the money is the only thing worth my time.

                            But with the second lord of the mansion defeated, it is time to continue our investigation. I may as well try the statue.

                            Welcome to the forum! I hope you'll have fun here.

                            Coffee Jeans enters the Mansion!
                            As a late attendant, you quickly move through the entrance door.

                            Cold wind hits you to the face and you hear the hooting of the Noctowl. It looks like there are trees all around you... Is this the curse of the Mansion? Check your character on the map for more informations.

                            There is only one way out of here and it leads to the room 7

                            You're too kind to give players their starters back. If I checked it right, it will affect me, jdthebud and Radboy... Which means Radboy won't have any curse for the 1st part of the game. But I'm pretty sure Mansion will find the way to fix this.

                            And yeah, we should update the first post, I know about it, but kinda hoped that people won't notice until the end of the October, when would I edit it.

                            BlissyMKW is spooked!
                            It's finally time for some action! You bravely pull the lever and... nothing happens...

                            You try again, but nothing happens... Is the statue broken?

                            What now? Disappointed, you're about to leave, when the statue jumps down the pedestal, glares at you and starts chasing you. It could as well turn into clown now and you wouldn't be surprised.

                            It chases you for a few minutes and it feels like you've run all over the whole Mansion at least twice, but you finally get rid of it. You find yourself in the whole new room with two tables full of food. You can choose 1 out of 4 plates.

                            Or you can go up to the room 32 or down to the room 21

                            Oh and by the way, you should be grateful to us, so this curse is put on you specially by the Event Host (NOTE: The First-encounter clause doesn't apply for the Pokémon you choose for this curse - so you can catch it on any road you've already been).

                              You lay on the couch, waiting for a well deserved sleep. Instead, you have nightmares about all the things you have witnessed in the Mansion.

                              Then you wake up in different room. There is Absol standing right in front of you.

                              "Before you leave, there is one choice to make: Put 2 more curses on one random player OR would you rather do nothing and have some more sleep?"
                              I’ll place two more curses on a random player. Feels fitting don’t you think? I must confess, that I’ve never beaten Lorelei with Rock moves until yesterday. Was surreal and the reason why is because Rock Pokemon typically are at a huge disadvantage except for Kabutops and Omastar(who I might use in my next Yellow run just to knock her out that way again).

                              and hi CodeHelmet, look like you made it here too. (how can you train your pokemon so fast anyway)
                              P/S: Shouldn't you edit the first post as well?
                              It’s not hard to train in Yellow. I’ve played it so long that I know good areas to grind and the hardest Pokémon to train are Bug Types... seriously go try a mono-Bug run on Gen 1. It’s as hard, if not harder, than a mono-Fighting run.

                              Yay....but I'm much too far into the game to bring Mudkip back, and also he's part Ground so I can't use him anyway....sad.

                                Dumb question:
                                I clicked my character on the map and it says I have forests curse but I'm not sure what it does. How do I check what the curses mean?
