    You can use any official games or enhanced hacks.
    When I said only enhanced hacks, I meant only Full Hacks can't be done in Ultimates. I'll clarify this better when I update the OP again.
    And you aren't restricted to only those, you can mix it up by doing a few official games and a few hacks if you want. You just can't use any full-fledged hacks in ultimate challenges (eg. Dark Rising, Ruby Destiny, Light Platinum)

    What I mean by go through six regions is not going through the 6 generations, but playing each region at least once. So yes, you can use hacks like FireRed Omega (Kanto) and Sacred Gold (Johto), because they have the same story (mostly) as the official games they are based from.

    You can use those if you wish, because like I said above, you can use any official games or enhanced hacks.

      Hmmmmm, well in that case...

      I would like to submit myself to the Pokemon Nuzlocke Ultimate challenge!

      Username: Alex Night
      Versions: Pokemon Ruthless Red
      Pokemon Complex Crystal
      Pokemon Emerald Omega
      Pokemon Perfect Platinum Challenger's Edition
      Pokemon Blaze Black,
      and then finally Pokemon X. (Or at least until there's a Drayano-like ROM hack of Pokemon X/Y for me to play. lol)
      Version: Ultimate

      All games with the exception of Pokemon X are enhanced versions of the official games and haven't chosen Pokemon FireRed Omega or Pokemon Sacred Gold as I am already doing a Nuzlocke on them and it would be weird. lol Plus, it will test me to see how well I remember how the old games worked.

      Optional Rules that span across all six regions (Because I'm an idiot like that):
      • I must nickname all of my captured/given Pokemon.
      • The Dupes Clause will be in effect.
      • Shiny clause... What can I say, I want shinies. xD I won't use them if I already caught something on a route, but I'm still catching it to satisfy my ego, damn it!
      • The Black-out/White-out clause will be in semi-effect in the form of numbers of lives I will have. I will start the challenge in Kanto with four lives max and if I white-out, then I lose a life. I lose all of my lives, Game over. I will only get a life back once I complete the region aka beating the game. It's a new take I want to spin on with the White-out rule.
      • The Battle style will be on Set.
      • I will not use any Trainer items like Potions or Full Heals while in battle with the exception of held items that heal like Lum Berries or Leftovers as well as healing moves like Aromatherapy or Soft-Boiled for example. Outside of battle, it's fair game with Trainer items.
      • (Gen 6 Rule) I will not be allowed to use the Exp Share except for the sole purpose of 15 minute team grinding montages if needed at all. Otherwise, the Exp Share is off-limits for regular progression aka battling trainers and Gym Leaders.

      I think that's it for rules... I think.

      As I want the proof of my suffering and achievements recorded, the Ultimate Challenge will be recorded in videos on my YouTube channel and I will constantly work to make it a daily series starting on Monday. Although I won't forget to check in on this thread giving text-based updates from time to time of course. I will also give your thread a shout-out so that people will know where I got the idea. Come Monday, I will crush this challenge with fire!

        I think I got everything updated, including username changes, so if I missed anything, let me know.

        I also expanded my challenge in Y to an ultimate.

        I'll prob update with Red later.

                  Your Black sign-up is the first reply, and it's already in the main post lol.

                  -----------------------------------------------------
                  I decided to change my Kanto game from Red to FireRed. Mainly because the original has mukty movesets, while the ones in FR are somewhat decent.

                  Kanto Update #1: 1/8 - Currently on Nugget Bridge.

                  This run did not start off good, I lost two members while training shortly after catching them.
                  After I trained what was left, Bulbasaur and Pidgey, I started doing pretty well and haven't had anymore deaths.

                  Team:
                  Spoiler:

                  Ivysaur Lv.18
                  - Tackle
                  - Poisonpowder
                  - Leech Seed

                  Pidgeotto Lv.18

                  - Wrap
                  - Leer
                  - Poison Sting
                  - Bite


                  Here's my catch and death progress so far:
                  Catches:
                  Spoiler:
                  • Pallet Town - Bulbasaur Lv.5
                  • Route 1 - Pidgey Lv.3

                  • Route 4 - Ekans Lv.6


                  Deaths:

                    Yay I am blind B) Lol or I was probably just super tired lol

                    Aaanyways it's done xD Let's just say that N and Ghetsis were major pains to take down - I decided to use Reshiram just for those two and so was the dragon gym because I didn't have any ice type pokemon or any ice types moves that I could teach anybody >_<

                    Alder was super easy though lol

                    I decided to take on Alder because Ghetsis and N battle were both just stalling party with a ton of deaths yay >.<

                    Vs. Alder

                    Final Team:

                    Arahna|Female|Hasty Nature|Compoundeyes|Lvl 85|@Magnet
                    X-Scissor
                    Thunderbolt
                    Bug Buzz
                    Discharge
                    She came in after last gym right before elite 4 and N/Ghetsis - I didn't get to use her much but I still enjoyed using her


                    Lilly|Female|Careful Nature|Chlorophyll|Lvl 87|@Amulet Coin
                    Return
                    X-Scissor
                    Swords Dance
                    Leaf Blade
                    She was my oldest buddy out of them all - I caught her around third gym and I don't remember how many times she endured the crits or strong moves for me .. She was my powerful little hidden gem.


                    Blimp|Male|Gentle Nature|Aftermath|Lvl 86
                    Shadow Ball
                    Fly
                    Omnious Wind
                    Thunderbolt
                    He joined the team after post game so I really didn't get to use him much - I only used him for elite 4 - at least few of their pokemon and Alder and that was it - But the short time he was with me he was an amazing addition to the team - hanging onto few hp few times in a row .. he was a good pokemon and I am sure looking forward to using him again :3


                    Beka|Female|Rash Nature|Shed Skin|Lvl 86
                    Rock Climb
                    Strength
                    Crunch
                    Hi Jump Kick
                    Another late addition to the team - I absolutely loved her typing and I absolutely loved using her :3 Looking forward to using her again <3


                    Amira|Female|Quirky Nature|Frisk|Lvl 86
                    Shadow Ball
                    Thunderbolt
                    Psyshock
                    Psychic
                    Yet another late addition to the team but she was so powerful! I loved using her so much <3


                    Ellie|Female|Gentle Nature|Oblivious|Lvl 85
                    Ice Beam
                    AncientPower
                    Earthquake
                    Ice Fang
                    And another post-game addition - I enjoyed using her nevertheless even though she didn't get to do much.

                        I completed Glazed Nuzlocke not too long ago :o I had a lot of deaths though It was sorta expectable considering that the hack is really really long but still D: Most of them were so unnecessary D:

                        Vs First Champion
                        Vs. Second Champion
                        Vs. Last champion

                        Final Team:


                        Lava|Male|Gentle Nature|Blaze|Lvl 91|@Charcoal
                        Earthquake
                        Rock Climb
                        Flamethrower
                        Flame Wheel
                        He is my favourite out of the gen 2 starters- I enjoyed using him very much as always- He was decent despite being the only fire starter that's just a fire type and nothing else.


                        Rex|Male|Hasty Nature|Intimidate|Lvl 91
                        Crunch
                        Rock Climb
                        Play Rough
                        Moonblast
                        He is actually a fairy type in this hack which made him so much better than he already is as a normal type! He joined the team pretty late as a replacement for Athena, my gardevoir that passed not too long before the last champion battle- And he didn't disappoint me. He was an amazing team member for sure!


                        Batgirl|Female|Timid Nature|Hyper Cutter|Lvl 91
                        Poison Jab
                        Swords Dance
                        Iron Tail
                        Earthquake
                        I've never used Gliscor before -so when I hatched gligar out of an egg that someone gave me I wanted to use it - and she proved to be an amazing team member that I so want to use again.


                        Icicle|Male|Bold Nature|Thick Fat|Lvl 91|@NeverMeltIce
                        Shadow Ball
                        Iron Tail
                        Hail
                        Ice Beam
                        He was a little monster that could take hits like there's no tomorrow- I could always count on him to do the best job he could do.


                        Ariel|Female|Timid Nature|Swift Swim|Lvl 91|@Sea Incense
                        Hydro Pump
                        Surf
                        Twister
                        Dragon Dance
                        I wish that she was more useful but meh.. She came into the team pretty late and the lack of good dragon moves that she could learn really made her lagging behind most of the time :/


                        Hera|Female|Brave Nature|Swarm|Lvl 91|@Black Belt
                        MegaHorn
                        Earthquake
                        Brick Break
                        Counter
                        She was another monster in my team. I loved using her so much! As always she gave me 101% every time I used her! She was really good and really powerful too.

                          UPDATE #1: HERE WE GO!
                          Spoiler:
                          So, Pokémon StormSilver. I've played a bit of this hack before, but didn't get very far, so it'll be interesting to play through. In a twist on my usual play style of the Johto games, I chose to play as a girl, called Melanie for some reason. I went through the usual SoulSilver beginning stuff, obtained the Running Shoes, Bicycle and GB Sounds (ah, sweet, sweet nostalgia) from my mom, and things were underway.

                          I decided to use the last digit of my ID number to decide my starter - 1 to 3 would get me Chikorita, 4 to 6 Cyndaquil, 7 to 9 Totodile, and 0 whoever I wanted. Turned out that my ID number ends in a 3, so Chikorita it was - a brave male with Natural Cure. Awesome! After a bit of deliberation, I decided to name him Tristan. With that done and my Pokégear picked up, it was time to head out along Route 29.

                          The journey to Cherrygrove City gave Tristan a chance to train, and despite a dodgy encounter with a Bidoof, he had hit level 7 and learned Razor Leaf by the time we had reached our destination. Upon arrival, we were immediately accosted by the Guide Gent, of course, who gave me an Old Rod and the Map Card for the trouble. Nice! After Tristan had finished splashing around in the water (which he seemed to really enjoy - aww!), we healed up and moved on to Route 30, where I picked up the Apricorn Box. Since it was gone 9 pm, we found ourselves running into the more nocturnal wild Pokémon along the way. The Hoothoot were nothing Tristan couldn't handle, but we had to run away from two Spinarak in a row for fear of being hit with a super-effective Poison Sting. As if that wasn't enough, we then had a worryingly close encounter with a Bug Bite-wielding Kricketot. Poor Tristan was on only 6 HP, but by that time we had reached Mr Pokémon's house. And who should be standing outside but Cynthia!

                          Cynthia told us a story, the tale of a Trainer who travelled through Johto and Kanto, caught all Pokémon known to exist, even came face to face with the one who Pokémon call god. Foreshadowing! Before she left, she gave me a gift of a level 5 Eevee: a serious male with Run Away, whom I decided to call Justin. I would have preferred him to have Adaptability over Run Away, but okay.

                          We get the Mystery Egg and the Pokédex, and leave Mr Pokémon's house... but oh no! Something's happened back at Professor Elm's lab! I sense an invasion of the plot!

                          We managed to get back to Cherrygrove without incident, discovering along the way that Justin really likes the water too, before running into a certain red-haired someone. Justin and Tristan made short work of his Cyndaquil, reaching level 6 and 8 respectively. You're going to be the greatest Trainer ever, pal? Not if you're being beaten by an Eevee and a Chikorita, you're not.

                          With that done, it was time to make our way back to New Bark Town, Justin levelling up again en route. Back at the lab, I gave my rival's name as Marco - it'd make sense for Giovanni's son to have an Italian name too, right? - and handed over the Mystery Egg before sorting out money-saving with my mom. That done, it was time to leave again, and this time, with Ethan handing over a whopping fifteen Poké Balls, my challenge was officially underway.

                          I was hoping for my first catchable encounter on Route 29 to be a Poochyena, but alas not. It was in fact... a level 4 female Bidoof. Thanks, game. I caught her with one ball, and named her Bella, probably the most ironic name possible - seriously, just look at Bidoof. I hate you, random number gods.

                          I healed up in Cherrygrove City again, and that was where I shut off for the night. Three team members and no deaths so far. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a male Ralts on Route 30.


                          UPDATE #2: ENTER GARRETT!
                          Spoiler:
                          With a little time to play before getting on with some work, I decided to use the Old Rod in Cherrygrove City and get a new team member. To my surprise, I found a level 5 Corphish, whom I caught and named Garrett. He turned out to have Adaptability, which is awesome.

                          Next I headed out to Route 30, hoping for a Ralts to pop up. Surprise surprise, it didn't; instead I found a male Weedle. Oh well, I caught him and named him Sting. Concerned about letting a Bug-type face Falkner in Violet City, and hoping to find a Natu on Route 31, I put him in the PC for the time being.

                          We trained for a bit on Route 30, letting Bella and Garrett have a few battles with wild Pokémon. We had a dodgy encounter with a Caterpie (seriously, what is up with all of these Pokémon having Bug Bite?), but managed to avoid any disasters. During this time I gained a new respect for Bella, her Unaware ability allowing her to ignore Metapod's repeated use of Harden, and by the time I decided to challenge Youngster Joey, both she and Garrett had reached level 7. Joey's top-percentage Rattata lasted all of four turns against Garrett and Tristan.

                          I healed the team up at Cherrygrove, and saved for the time being.


                          UPDATE #3: BUGS AND OTHER BUGS!
                          Spoiler:
                          My first port of call was the second Trainer along Route 30: Aroma Lady Julia. Things went pretty well, with Garrett and Justin hitting level 8, Justin learning Bite, and Tristan reaching level 9 and learning Poison Powder. There was a brief moment of panic when Bella was hit with Julia's Seedot's Bullet Seed and Quick Attack, but my Bidoof somehow hung on with only 1 HP left. Phew! Needless to say, I healed up in Cherrygrove after that battle.

                          On the way back up Route 30, I took the opportunity to level Bella up a bit more. I was grateful for the abundance of Metapod and Kakuna, with her Unaware ability completely nullifying Harden, and she was up to level 8 by the time we were back by the Trainers. We also ran into a Ralts along the way, much to my annoyance - I wanted one of those!

                          Idol Carly was the next Trainer, and pretty easy, despite an annoying Jigglypuff using Sing on Bella and a Skitty almost taking out Garrett with a critical Tackle; both of my guys managed to knock out their opponent and reach level 9. Justin fell victim to Clefairy's Cute Charm, but still managed to knock her out.

                          On Route 31, I debated going into Dark Cave and looking for a new Pokémon there. Curiosity won, and I did so, running into a level 8 Sandshrew. Better than a Zubat, anyway. He proved to be a bit of a pain to catch, what with his constant Sand Attack spam, but Tristan managed to poison him and I caught him. His name, I decided, would be Michael, and I quickly used my only Antidote on him to prevent him succumbing to the poison.

                          Another trip to Cherrygrove, to heal up and buy some Antidotes, and it was back to Route 31. I was less happy about the Metapod this time, having Justin up front, but even less happy about a Bide-using Seedot I ran from (no point taking risks) and a Weedle that poisoned my poor Eevee, prompting a use of one of my Antidotes. Lucky I bought them, really!

                          With no encounters on Route 31 yet, I was hoping to run into a Natu, but no: I found a level 6 female Buizel instead. Not really useful, considering that I already had Garrett, but hey; I caught her, and named her Jenna. That's a full team of six! With that, I managed to avoid Bug Catcher Wade and headed straight for Violet City.

                          In the Pokémon Centre, I found a guy with a Juggler sprite, who asked me if I wanted to take a quiz. I said yes, and passed, which led to the guy offering me a Pokémon: a Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle. I decided to roll a die to choose: 1 or 2 would get me Bulbasaur, 3 or 4 for Charmander, and 5 or 6 for Squirtle. I was secretly hoping for Charmander, since that would cover all three basic types in my party, and, in a stroke of luck, I rolled a three! I named my new Charmander Lucian, and discovered that he has Solar Power. Lovely! There I saved, which turned out to be a very good idea later.

                          Healed up, I walked back to Route 31 to fight Wade, who was pretty easy, despite almost losing Tristan to a Bug Bite from Nincada. Always the Bug Bite! Fortunately, I pulled him out and Garrett finished it off with a Bubble, narrowly averting disaster for the fifth time.

                          Back in Violet City, I decided to explore the buildings and talk to a few people. This proved to be a mistake when I went into a particular house - specifically, the one in the south-west of the city - because after I left, the game underwent a bizarre graphical glitch that messed up all the character sprites on the screen. In an attempt to fix it, I went into the Trainer School... which caused the game to crash. Just lovely.

                          I reset the emulator, and was incredibly relieved to find myself standing outside the Violet City Pokémon Centre, Lucian in tow. Thank Arceus. Unfortunately, I would have to fight Wade again. Annoyed, I gave up for the day - but not before attempting to replicate the glitch, in case it was a thing that happened for that particular house. Spoiler alert: it wasn't. That's something, at least, but I'm wary of it happening again, so I'm saving regularly now.

                          Still can't believe I've had no deaths yet. But next up are Sprout Tower and Falkner, so that could change very quickly. This is gonna suck.


                          UPDATE #4: I HATE YOU, HOOTHOOT
                          Spoiler:
                          Today's first task was to battle Bug Catcher Wade again, since whatever stupid glitch that was last time wiped out that battle. Apart from Justin being poisoned by Spinarak, he was pretty easy, and this gave me enough confidence to check out Sprout Tower.

                          The first Sage in the Tower delivered a way-too-close encounter with a Sunkern, of all things, that almost took out Michael. Fortunately, it didn't have much defence against Tristan, who Tackled it to death. Tristan actually proved to be surprisingly effective against this Sage's team, which cheered me greatly. Buoyed by this, I challenged the second Sage. I managed to not send Michael out against a Grass-type this time, but a Bellsprout got lucky with a critical Vine Whip and knocked Bella down to 2 HP. Lucian burned the ever-loving hell out of it with Ember in retribution.

                          And then... Things got nasty.

                          The next Sage kicked off with a level 10 Mareep, which could have been a massive disaster if not for Michael nullifying its Thundershock. Even so, it was a frustrating battle, with Mareep spamming Charge for some reason and Static paralysing Michael. My Sandshrew pulled through in the end, though, and the Sage's second Pokémon went down with less difficulty. But then, the Sage threw out a level 10 Hoothoot - one that immediately started spamming Air Cutter.

                          I threw everything I had at it, hoping one of my guys would get a lucky critical hit that would end the battle quickly. Alas, it wasn't to be: only Lucian came close to doing some real damage, but the annoying bird used Hypnosis and ruined that attempt. I didn't dare to send out Tristan, knowing that one hit from Air Cutter would be enough for me to lose him; Lucian was snoozing at just over half health; the rest of the crew were on less than half health, at the point where one more Air Cutter on any of them would be the last. I was sunk. With no other option, I made the regretful decision to use Michael as a sacrifice so I could heal Justin.

                          Justin came back swinging and took out the infuriating bird, but the damage was done. My Sandshrew had fallen.

                          This, people, is why I shouldn't tempt fate.

                          That episode convinced me that I needed to grind some more before taking on the rest of Sprout Tower, so I headed out to Route 32 with my five surviving team members. I was very much hoping to find a Mareep on this route, so I'd have some way of beating Falkner, but it wasn't to be: my first encounter was... a Hoppip. Thanks, game. I love you too.

                          Anyway, I caught the little guy, calling him Joey. I do like Hoppip - I used a Jumpluff on HeartGold, and he was amazing - but with the first two Gyms being Flying and Bug, they're not really the best choice. Oh well, I still have Sprout Tower.

                          Back on Route 31 with Bella - her Unaware ability makes the Metapod, Kakuna, Silcoon and Cascoon a breeze - I ran into a Natu, which didn't improve my mood at all. I really wanted a Natu. Then I found a Shinx, which really got my Gogoat. I'm now certain that this game is trolling me.

                          I'll update again once I've levelled up a bit.

                              UPDATE #5: I'M STARTING TO REGRET THIS
                              Spoiler:
                              After the disaster of the last attempt at Sprout Tower, I'd decided to grind a bit to prevent any more losses. I managed to get my team up to level 12, and headed back into the Tower. Amazingly, I hadn't encountered a Pokémon in there yet, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found one. Of course, because this is me, it turned out to be a Rattata. Thanks a bunch.

                              This Rattata - Anna - was actually not as bad as I'd thought. With her Hustle ability, she surprised me by one-shotting most wild Pokémon she battled as I levelled her up - so much so that I put her in the active team. With her help, I defeated the next Sage in the Tower. And then - disaster.

                              The next Sage's first Pokémon went down easily enough, but then he sent out - of all things - a Natu. Which decided to use Air Cutter. I'm starting to notice a theme here.

                              With Anna on just over half health, I thought I could risk using Bite and hoping for a KO, but it wasn't to be. Instead of Air Cutter, Natu used Confusion, and Anna fell. I hardly knew you, little one.

                              Justin immediately went on the attack, outrunning Natu and taking it down with his own Bite. What is it with the Flying-types? If this keeps up, I'm going to have a hell of a time with Falkner.

                              Back at the Pokémon Center, I put Joey on the team and headed back to the Tower. The next Sage went down nicely, so it was just the Elder left. My rival showed up in a cutscene, then I was able to fight the Elder. Before that, though, I wandered over to pick up the Escape Rope that was lying in the corner. That was a mistake.

                              Out of nowhere, a wild Spinda showed up. It used Uproar, and took Bella down.

                              Justin's Run Away ability actually came in useful for once, and allowed me to run from that encounter, but it was too late. Honestly, I'm starting to think that doing a Nuzlocke run of this game wasn't such a good idea. I'm probably going to get a game over against Falkner. This stinks.

                              Alright, time for something interesting. (And just noticed this is my 4,444th post...)

                              Name: Pendraflare
                              Game: Black
                              Single/Ultimate?: Single (for the time being)
                              Extra rules: Set battle style, three healing items max per fight, no two Pokémon on my team can have same or opposite natures. Pokémon with neutral natures cannot have the same characteristics. Also, Pokémon cannot exceed the highest level of the next Gym Leader (or 50 before the Elite Four).

                              Spoiler:
                              So I started the game, chose the girl and named her Elsa. I got Tepig, then beat Bianca and Cheren, and once I got to Juniper's lab I named my Tepig Pumbaa. (My naming theme will be animated Disney characters.) He is Quirky nature and hates to lose. Once I was on Route 1, I caught a Lillipup that I named Tramp, who is Brave nature and highly curious. I got Pumbaa to Level 7 so he'd learn Ember, then once I got to the Pokémon Center and healed up, I took on N's Purrloin and beat him. I reached Route 2, got the Running Shoes, then a Patrat named Ratigan who is Lonely nature and proud of its power. I beat the trainers on the route, including Bianca who was no sweat.

                              Then I reached Striaton City, and after I got past the trainers in the Dreamyard, I received Pansage, who I named Abu. He is Bashful nature and highly curious, but Tramp was highly curious too so I put Tramp back in the box since I figured i'd need Abu more. I got some items and beat Cheren at the Trainer's School, then trained my team to Level 11, except Abu who I got to 12. Then I beat the trainers in the Gym, and afterward got Pumbaa to Level 13 so he'd learn Defense Curl. With that I went back for the Gym Leader!

                              Lillipup was first, and I began with Pumbaa. I was faster, and even upped against his Work Up with my Defense Curl, and also lowered his Defense with Tail Whip, while his Bite didn't do much at all. I beat him while I still had over half my health left and got him to waste his Potion.
                              For Panpour, I went straight to Abu, and he used Work Up twice...while my Vine Whip wasn't even a 3HKO. But I managed to best it.

                              Then I got the Trio Badge and TM83 for Work Up, which are nice. I got the C-Gear from Fennel, met with Amanita, and...that's where I left it.

                              Team:

                                    Update 1:
                                    Picked Tepig as starter, named PapaPig.
                                    Caught Purrloin, named it Kit-Cat.
                                    Didn't release PapaPig, but put it in my box to be sent to my pokebank :D
                                    Calling it a night more progress tomorrow!

                                    I'm gonna do another update since a few things have changed in my team and whatnot. Not really a big update since all I do is finish the Team Flare part of the game.

                                        Okay, I finally finished my Y Nuzlocke run! I'm going to post the team I used to fight the E4/Diantha but will have something to show which ones fainted before/during the fight.

                                        Spoiler:


                                        Scott- Chatot- Level 81
                                        Route 12
                                        Ability: Tangled Feet

                                        Death by:
                                        The longest standing Pokemon that I've had in the game. I really loved using him since I've never even thought to try to use a Chatot. Hyper Voice/Chatter destroyed most of Siebold's Pokemon and defeated Malva's Chandelure.


                                        Amanda- Beartic- Level 74
                                        Frost Cavern
                                        Ability: Snow Cloak

                                        Sheer Cold
                                        Strength

                                        Icicle Crash
                                        Death by:
                                        I loved the look of this bear since it came out but have never used one. She was a huge powerhouse on my team that destroyed Drasna with Will and defeated Diantha's Hawlucha and Tyrantrum.


                                        Damien- Gourgeist- Level 74
                                        Route 16
                                        Ability: Frisk
                                        Moves:
                                        Pain Split
                                        Seed Bomb
                                        Flame Charge
                                        Phantom Force
                                        Damien was the Pokemon on my team that I was expecting to die early, especially while he was a Pumpkaboo. He was surprisingly strong for a small Gourgeist! While he didn't have many parts during the fight he did help take down most of Wikstrom's Pokemon and Mega Gardevoir. He was also one of the two Pokemon I used to fight AZ at the end.


                                        Toad- Poliwrath- Level 67
                                        Laverre City
                                        Ability: Damp
                                        Moves:
                                        Waterfall
                                        Body Slam
                                        Surf
                                        Circle Throw
                                        Defeated by:
                                        Toad was originally suppose to be a Politoad but I didn't have enough patience to evolve it after my first Poliwhirl died. While I do wonder what would have happened if I had evolved it into a Politoad, Toad destroyed any Pokemon he was in a battle with. Without him I wouldn't have been able to defeat Malva with such ease and AZ's Torkoal would have been a pain to even try to defeat.



                                        Will- Druddigon- Level 67
                                        Victory Road
                                        Ability: Rough Skin
                                        Moves:
                                        Night Slash
                                        Outrage
                                        Shadow Claw
                                        Superpower
                                        Originally just a replacement for the Goodra I lost in Victory Road but turned out to be a strong fighter and great teammate. Since he started out with strong attacks I didn't have to change that many attacks for him to be good. While he was mostly a great stall for healing, he did take down half of Dasna's team before I switched him out for Amanda.

                                        Defeated by:
                                        Vivi was the last Pokemon added to my team and my weakest since I used her almost exclusively during the E4 fights. While I do wish I would have trained her a lot more, she was a great support Pokemon to use. I normally used her first or second to weaken the opponent's team with Charm + Thunder Wave and then go in for the kill. She was defeated by Barbaracle's critical hit X-Scissor before I could exchange her out.

                                        Queeny the Sandslash- Level 49- Twins Nana & Nina in Route 20. Double teamed her.
                                        Fiona the Magnezone- Level 54- Critical hit Low Sweep from Weavile on Victory Road.
                                        Joyce the Goodra- Level 53- Kangaskhan's Outrage on Victory Road.




                                        Final Note:
                                        This was actually harder than I thought it would be since I'm so used to just gliding through the game without having to train all that much. I've gotten to used to just reviving my Pokemon and that caused me to have huge losses, especially on the second gym and after.

                                        EDIT:
                                        I totally uploaded some pictures and forgot to add them. It is way to late at night and I need some sleep.
