Spoiler: The rules as of now
  1. Dracula's apprentice: Any Pokémon that can learn any of the HP-draining moves must learn it as soon as possible and retain it for the remainder of the run.
  2. Ocean's Curse: Water, Ice, and Dragon types are now banned from your team, unless they also possess the Ghost or Dark types. HM slaves and Pokemon mandated by another curse are exempt from this rule.
  3. First-encounter clause: You may only capture and use the first Pokemon you encounter on each route for the remainder of the game. Your current Pokemon are unaffected, as are gifts.
  4. Ghostly Adventure - GLOBAL RULE: Catch a Ghost-type (even if you already have one) as soon as possible. It must stay on your team for the rest of the game. It's also your best friend from now on.
  5. Making Frankenstein - GLOBAL RULE: Your team must be composed with Pokémon with different primary types if possible from now on.
  6. Zombieland - GLOBAL RULE: All of your forcefully boxed Pokémon are revived as zombies. They can only use physical contact moves and are immune to the curse that boxed them. But you can't in any circumstances use them on the same team as your current Pokémon.

From Mauville, Aile made her way to Lavaridge Town. Sounds easy but actually not, thanks to Team Magma. Them blocking the way to Mt. Chimney was why the girl had to make a detour to Fallarbor Town, then back to Rustboro City via Meteor Falls, through Rusturf Tunnel where Grievous Lady's Rock Smash helped Wanda, Wally's cousin, to reunite with her boyfriend, and back to Mt. Chimney by the time it had opened. She also had to deal with Team Magma's shenanigans up there before going down to Lavaridge Town via Jagged Pass. Again, the catchathon and evolutions were unavoidable at this point:
Spoiler: Catchathon
  • Dement the Wurmple at Route 102
  • Conflict the Slakoth at Petalburg Woods
  • Vexaria the Whismur at Rusturf Tunnel
  • Iconoclast the Abra at Route 116
  • Quon the Koffing at Fiery Path
  • inkar-usi the Slugma at Route 113
  • Lucifer the Swablu at Route 114
  • Syro the Numel at Route 112
  • Suomi the Spoink at Jagged Pass

Spoiler: Evolution
  • Chronostasis into Breloom
  • Flyburg into Golbat
  • Endroll into Hariyama
  • Clotho into Graveler

Speaking of Lavaridge Town, one does not simply forget to grab a Wynaut egg there and talk about its gym leader, Flannery. Clotho, Syro, and Viyella worked together to take her on. To be fair though, Aile had to use a Revive on Clotho while fighting Flannery's Torkoal (of all things).

And here I am, picking up a blue berry and going to room 23.

Spoiler:

As 11wildy pointed out, if you have many rules, the hover box starts showing outside of the visible part of the screen. So all new rules will be added on top of the list from now on.

Also there might not be an update tomorrow since I'll be on the same business trip as on Saturday, but should return earlier. But can't really promise that I'll return in time for the next update.

ULTIMATE GLOBAL RULE WAS ACTIVATED
(NEW GLOBAL RULE HAS BEEN ACTIVATED)

Cubism touches the black rectangular object and the reality warps. But not just for him. Everyone in the cemetery feels the change. Something's wrong. Where are their Pokémon?

NOTE: You can use your already caught Ghost, Dark and/or Poison Pokémon.
NOTE: This rules doesn't override all the rules that forced a specific Pokémon on your team.





11WILDY DIVES IN THE DARK WATERS
He dives and finds underwater tunel. After few more seconds of swimming, he make it out in the new section. New rule has been added, check your character on the map.

He find himself inside a building. He walks out and sees that it was a lighthouse. Wait! What is lighthouse doing here? Anyway, berries!
Red berries manipulate your team

Pick one or more berries to continue. One berry will add one rule to your run.

CUBISM IS OUT OF THE REALITY
Doctor-Stranging his way through the beautiful colorful dimensions, he make it safely to the cemetery. New rule has been added, check your character on the map.

And he's... He's back in the same location. Even the black thingy is here. It still has sinister dark aura. Let's touch it again! Or he could take berry this time, since he dropped it last time?
Red berries manipulate your team
Blue berries manipulate your gameplay
Blue berries manipulate your gameplay
Pick one or more berries to continue. One berry will add one rule to your run. You also encountered special event. The map can change based on your action.

KOSTUCHA IS IN THE FINALE
But can he really make it with these new rules? New rule has been added, check your character on the map.

SANIACHAN WON THE LOTTERY!
And has to play with a completed Nuzlocke rules from now on. New rule has been added, check your character on the map.

Next section has long line of graves. There is a berry in front of each of them:
Red berries manipulate your team

INKBLOTS IS FINALLY HERE
Someone is slowly finishing and someone is slowly starting. Welcome to your cemetery, Inkblots. New rule has been added, check your character on the map.

Anyway, I was able to find few berries to choose from for you:
Green berries manipulate your movesets
Green berries manipulate your movesets
Blue berries manipulate your gameplay
Pick one or more berries to continue. One berry will add one rule to your run.
NOTE: Since the Global Rule might not be feasible, you're free to ignore it until your next update.

Halloween Trick-or-Treating in Platinum - Completed

Rules:
Spoiler:
Curse of curses - Any Pokémon that can learn Curse must know it for the rest of the game. If your team doesn't have a Pokémon with Curse yet, put a Pokémon that can learn it on your team. It must stay there and know Curse for the rest of the game.
Fridge Horror - If your Pokémon cannot resist the cold (i.e. is not taught any Fire-type moves or does not resist Ice through typing or ability), it can no longer use STAB moves in battle.
No-Slot Hex - Your maximum party size is reduced by 1
Embargo - You may no longer use items in battle.
Plaguespreader - Teach your Pokémon as many Poison-type moves as possible. If you can't teach any move, your Pokémon are infected with a plague and must be permanently put in a quarantine - in the box.
BIRDS!!!! - Put a Regional Bird on your team. It doesn't have to be regional bird of your region (Example: Pidgeot can be used outside Kanto). It can only learn Physical and Status Moves.
Reversed Record Player - TMs are now banned.
You’re a wizard, Harry - You have to put one of the following Pokémon on your team and it must stay there for the rest of the game: Haunter/Gengar, Dusclops/Dusknoir, Banette, Gardevoir, Gallade, Kadabra/Alakazam, Sableye, Grumpig, Solrock, Lunatone, Misdreavus/Mismagius, Gulpin, Relicanth, Dustox, Medicham, Jynx, Chandelure, Reuniclus, Trevenant, Gourgeist, Chimecho.
Ocean’s Curse - Water, Ice, and Dragon types are now banned from your team, unless they also possess the Ghost or Dark types. HM slaves and Pokemon mandated by another curse are exempt from this rule.
Spooky Ball - if there are any Ghost or Dark-type obtainable by this point in your game, catch one now, even if you already have one on your team. This Pokemon cannot be removed from your team, even by the effects of another curse.
Ghostly Adventure - GLOBAL RULE - Catch a Ghost-type (even if you already have one) as soon as possible. It must stay on your team for the rest of the game. It's also your best friend from now on.
Nightmares - Teach your Pokémon as many sleep inflicting moves (including self-inflicting) as possible. If you can't teach any of these moves to any of your Pokémon, catch a Pokémon you can teach one of these moves.
Making Frankenstein - GLOBAL RULE - Your team must be composed with Pokémon with different primary types if possible from now on.
Zombieland - GLOBAL RULE - All of your forcefully boxed Pokémon are revived as zombies. They can only use physical contact moves and are immune to the curse that boxed them. But you can't in any circumstances use them on the same team as your current Pokémon.
Locke Clause - Any fainted Pokemon for the remainder of the run must be boxed until the completion of the run. You may revive your current party before this rule goes into effect.
Set Curse - Set mode! Rest of the game!
Rectangular Force- GLOBAL RULE - All Pokémon except Ghost, Dark and Poison-types are banned from now on.
The Blaire Witch - Any Ghost-type Pokémon in your party must learn Spite. If they are unable or you have no Ghost Pokemon, stand in the corner for ten minutes and loose toss all of any five items out of your inventory.
Elm Street Neighbours - Now it’s time to learn any of the slashing moves or Dream Eater. Any Pokemon that can must do so as soon as possible, and keep one eligible move for the entire rest of the run.


Dusknoir doesn't learn Spite (ok, it does by move tutor, but I'm far from having enough shards for that and I don't wish to waste time in underground just for that) so I tossed all my X items, I can't use them anyway.

I expected to add more team members before E4, but instead with the global rule I had to remove another two, oh well. Turns out Houndoom + Nasty Plot + Flamethrower + all those Rare Candies you get in the game is pretty powerful, I basically solo'd the E4 with it, what a weird end to all this madness.

Hall of Fame:
Spoiler:


Team:

I will run to the east, area 33! Taking all berries of course. Not yet giving up on that challenge!

Also, I'll be on holiday for a week tomorrow, so no updates for a bit except MAYBE this evening

______________

Suddenly I woke up, I looked around and saw myself still being at Cianwood's shore. Luckily, all my Pokemon were still around, Nightmare and Ghost sleeping, Static was floating around and Wisp was just sitting there, staring at me creepily. So I approached him and asked, "what's wrong buddy?". Then it transformed into a Ditto, smiling creepily. I woke up and we started to look for Wisp, but he was nowhere to be found. During our search, a strange floatinf rectangle appeared, got closer and closer. Static got pulled to it by it's magnetic force and then got stuck. The rectangle started to float away and I started to pull on Static. It wasn't working, Static was stuck and bleeping in panic. As the rectangle got higher I had to let go. Another team member gone. As if this adventure was cursed...

I suppose I'd have to do with this Ditto now. We flew back to Olivine and got inside the lighthouse, climbing up carefully, but when we got to the upper floor, it was completely cleaned and there was a lady caring for Ampharos. I gave Ampharos the medicine and it started to glow again. The lady introduced herself as the gym leader and we challenged her to a battle.
It was the most difficult battle so far. Ghost put Magnemite to sleep, gave them a Curse and then healed back up with Dream Eater. Steelix was more durable. It got put to sleep, but then woke up as Ghost Cursed it, going down to an Iron Tail. Nightmare got sent out and put Steelix back to sleep and gave it Nightmares. Steelix woke up again and Nightmare barely survives an Iron Tail. We put Steelix back to sleep for the third time, for it never to wake up again! Finally we had won this fight!

Rules:
Forest's curse: No Bug/Grass/Flying/Poison types allowed
No-slot hex: Max team size of 5
Ocean's curse: No Water/Ice/Dragon types allowed
The curse of eternal youth: No evolutions

(Rip Gastly's Night Shade and Hoothoot's Swift)
The thing: Box a team member and replace it with Ditto
You're a wizard, Harry: Add Kadabra/Alakazam, Haunter/Gengar or Jynx to the team
(I PMed Janp to ask which rule to break in this contradictory situation)

Global rules:
Add a Dark type to my team.
No type overlapping

Day 1

Oof, between Forest’s Curse and Rectangular Force making only Ghost and Dark types available, this should be uh… interesting.
Good thing I didn't choose FR like I was going to originally, oh that would've been bad lol

Looks like Poochyena is about to become my very best friend

- Caught Poochyena, my new partner-in-crime. Nicknamed Lycan
- Rustboro Gym! Is a nightmare. I’ve got a dark type, a fire type, and not allowed grass?
- Well, I was going to follow the global rule except for Torchic just so I wouldn’t have to get rid of so many pokemon, but I guess I’m gonna have to find something that can use water/grass moves if I don’t want to spend the next few hours grinding
- omg I always forgot about Nosepass
- Well, after several failed attempts, I went and caught a Marill and levelled her up until she learned water gun. And then in the end, turned out the process of levelling up Marill also meant Lycan was now at a high enough level to beat Roxanne all on his own!
- Boxed Marill and Torchic. Just you and me for a while now Lycan!

I will choose a green berry and move to room 5

Also, question: with Rectangular Force, are we still allowed HM slaves that aren't dark/poison/ghost?

Second question: Can I use Seedot even though it's a pure grass type, since it will evolve into a grass/dark type?

ULTIMATE GLOBAL RULE WAS ACTIVATED
(NEW GLOBAL RULE HAS BEEN ACTIVATED)

Cubism touches the black rectangular object and the reality warps. But not just for him. Everyone in the cemetery feels the change. Something's wrong. Where are their Pokémon?

NOTE: You can use your already caught Ghost, Dark and/or Poison Pokémon.
NOTE: This rules doesn't override all the rules that forced a specific Pokémon on your team.


So, would you be able to use something that evolves into a type that isn't banned by Rectangular Force? Like, for example, I got the Eevee from Bill and it can evolve into Umbreon.

Knowing that a bazillion of her mons (including her starter, Fracture Ray) are cursed somehow, Aile had to set them aside until only Afterburn, Sheriruth, Quon, Flyburg, and Axium Crisis left. She shuffled the whole squad and made her way through the desert at Route 111 where she got Ether Strike the Cacnea. Not only that, evolutions also ensued due to the grinding she had done:
Spoiler: Evolution
  • Axium Crisis into Gloom
  • Sheriruth into Mightyena
  • Ether Strike into Cacturne

The girl ultimately decided to switch Flyburg with Quon and Axium Crisis with Ether Strike after contemplating for quite some time.

Back at Petalburg City, Aile and her ragtag foursome squad went all out against Mr. Dad Norman. Sheriruth dealt with his Spinda and helped Quon to take care of his Vigoroth, Ether Strike handled his Slaking nicely despite the latter spamming Yawn, and Afterburn took out his Linoone like a champ (seems like they had their own training with Grievous Lady for quite some time 😏). Aile then rushed back home to tell her mom about this "daddy's girl has grown up" moment.


PS: I use they/them pronouns for genderless Pokemon with green names like Afterburn.

*proceeds to grab a red berry and sprint to room 33*
Also, question: with Rectangular Force, are we still allowed HM slaves that aren't dark/poison/ghost?
I second this question 'coz I've been planning for Grievous Lady (Linoone) and Singularity (Marill) to be my (permanent) HM buddies.
Second question: Can I use Seedot even though it's a pure grass type, since it will evolve into a grass/dark type?
I practically did the same but with Cacnea, so gotta bet it should be OK. 😉

A question about Rectangular Force: are Pokemon like Jellicent, Scolipede and Krookodile allowed? Or do the Pokemon have to have only Ghost/Dark/Poison type?
Also, question: with Rectangular Force, are we still allowed HM slaves that aren't dark/poison/ghost?

Second question: Can I use Seedot even though it's a pure grass type, since it will evolve into a grass/dark type?

You can use any Pokémon that has Ghost, Dark or Poison typing and doesn't have any of the types banned by the other rules. And yes, you can use Pokémon that will eventually become Ghost, Dark or Poison-type like Eevee or Seedot.

Question about my Fridge Horror curse...does the Fire move need to be damaging? i.e. would Sunny Day or Will-O-Wisp qualify?
Yes, it doesn't need to be a damaging move.

You know, I should've expected something like this would happen. At least Eevee is coming up, so at least I'll have something halfway viable for a while, or I might have to see what the grass has to offer since Stalker pretty much can't attack. Also, most of this was typed up before Rectangular Force happened, so...that's a thing.

Episode 4 - End of a Dream, Start of a Nightmare

Current Curses


Fridge Horror - No Fire move or Ice resist = No STAB moves. AKA rip Stalker.
Ghostly Adventure - Misdreavus is only in Mt. Silver.
Cursed Ground - No Ground, Rock, or Fighting types.
Too scared to move - Only 3 attacking moves. Irrelevant for Stalker because no STAB moves allowed anyway.
Making Frankenstein - Primary types for team members must be different. However, now with Rectangular Force, I'm pretty sure I'll be limited on the number of mons I can have at all.
Zombieland - Still irrelevant.
Starter-lock Hex - rip Blaze
Rectangular Force - Any non Ghost, Dark, or Poison types are banned.



So I had a good post in progress, then I accidently deleted it all and couldn't recover it. So, I'm just gonna give a highlight reel of what happened because now I'm mad and can't be bothered to retype all of that.

-We're kinda screwed because Stalker basically has no attacks
-Sudowoodo died because Hypnosis into Curse strats
-Psychic Greg almost ruined me because his Drowzee has Dream Eater strats.
-Back to Goldenrod to get Hex the Eevee, but because of Fridge Horror, I had to teach him the only move I could, Mud-Slap
-Battled the gym trainers in Ecrtueak, but not Morty, then the Kimono Girls
-Headed to Olivine to scoop up the Good Rod...and pray. I only found Magikarps, though.
-Went and caught a Growlithe...because I don't even know why anymore. I'm running out of plans. At least it's immune to Fridge Horror and can learn Dig...is what I would say, but I typed most of this up before Rectangular Force became a thing, so now the Growlithe is just box filler and a waste of Poke Balls.

So thanks to Rectangular Force and the fact I can't use Ground types, going and catching a Nidoran would be a waste of time since I wouldn't be allowed to evolve either of them. I can catch a Tentacool later for a Water type since it's also a Poison type, but I can't do that without access to Surf, so we have to do Morty with an Eevee with Mud-Slap and a Haunter that has no direct offense against 4 mons. Let's pick a god and pray. The Gastly got put to sleep right away and all it took was one Mud-Slap to kill it. The first Haunter was iffy since I missed two Hypnosis, but once I got it off, Hex managed to deal with it using a few Mud-Slaps. Next is the threat, the Gengar. I know for sure it outspeeds me and loves Hypnosis and Dream Eater. The plan was to switch Stalker in and pray it doesn't land it's own Hypnosis so I can use my own and Hypnosis it and follow up with Curse. Instead he just Shadow Balls me and I get one shot. Just when it couldn't get worse, he lands Hypnosis first shot and puts Hex to sleep. I didn't buy Awakenings, so I had to use one of my one Full Heals. He missed the second Hypnosis and I got a Mud-Slap off. After that began the Sand-Attack spam. Sure, he got off another one, but I had another Full Heal and he was already missing a ton.

Last was the second Haunter and I had almost no Mud-Slaps left. And by "almost none," I mean one. So after the Haunter wasted it's turn on Mean Look, I threw off the last Mud-Slap. Good thing I have Ethers. He has Spite, though, and just like that, it's back to no Mud-Slaps again. I only got off one. Figuring there was no point in wasting my last Ether, I decided to spam my useless moves to just try and Struggle him to death. It turns out this Haunter has Mimic and no actual way of hurting an Eevee, so while I was draining Quick Attack PP, he Mimic'd it. Eventually, he ran out of PP before I did and started Struggling to death. This is what we've come to. Eventually, and with a few heals, it killed itself with Stuggle. Because I didn't buy items, we only survived because I luckily had two Full Heals. This is just wild. At least I can go catch a Tentacool after I catch a Krabby as a Surf and Strength slave.

...Oh right. I still have to do the stuff. Well, considering that the last time I interacted with something, I blocked off a path, I'm not gonna try it this time. All my sets are already screwed and because Gen 2 has so limited options in the main story, taking a green berry will provide the least damage since the combination of other curses has already driven me into such a deep corner, I have to rely on a weak Ground move and Curse to not die. Let's go to Room 27. At least I'm halfway there.

The Team

Stalker (Haunter) Lv. 25 @ Nothing
Moves: Hypnosis, Lick, Curse, Mean Look


Hex (Eevee) Lv. 28 @ Nothing
Moves: Quick Attack, Tail Whip, Sand-Attack, Mud-Slap
