So is there a verdict on whether Munchlax is usable in the Nuzlocke?

The event Munchlax?

I guess so, since it's level 5 and has no huge advantages over other Pokemon, I don't see why not.

Quick update on my Pearl Nuzlocke; not too much has happened since the last update but I think it'll pick up since I finished Moon a few days ago.

- Journeyed all the way to Hearthome City after clearing trainers on Route 206 and 207. Left Wayward Cave alone for now; hoping for a Gible later
- Defeated my rival in Hearthome City; it wasn't too much of a challenge (probably since his Starly hadn't evolved yet)
- Given an egg in Hearthome City, stashed it in the box for now
- Cleared Route 209, 210, Solaceon Ruins, and most of Route 215. Regrettably, I KO'ed Bibarel on Route 209 and had to run from a Kadabra on 215 (so strong!). However, I caught an Unown F and Ponyta for the box, perhaps for use later.
- Geodude evolved to Graveler! I'll be trading to evolve it over the next couple of days. Woot!

Team (all at lv. 25): Meditite, Graveler, Staravia, Grotle, Luxio; Bidoof HM slave

UPDATE: RIP Luxio! He fell to the double battle team of Gyarados and Glameow (...) at the end of Route 215. First casualty of the challenge... Now I don't have a good electric type for Crasher Wake. Picked Gastly from the box and started training it up - it'll be able to learn Thunderbolt and should be of great help in the Veilstone Gym as well due to its typing.

So I started a blog to track my journey through the games beyond Gen I, and since I'm playing each game as a Nuzlocke/Gymlocke I might as well throw my name into this too.

However, I have a question with labeling as a Single vs. Ultimate. I am playing on emulators, so I can only play up through Gen V. This isn't all the available games/regions, but it's what's playable for me since I don't own any type of DS... So it doesn't truly fit the Ultimate description, but it's more than a Single...

Username: JaDe.X105
Version: Currently Crystal, but Emerald, Platinum, B/W, and B2/W2 will follow
Single/Ultimate?: *pending OP reply*

Also update on my progress in Crystal:
Badges:
Johto- 1/8, Kanto- 0/8

Current team:
Kansas, Lvl. 12
Feathers, Lvl. 12
WebButt, Lvl. 11
Rocky, Lvl. 11

Single/Ultimate: Single I guess? I have two singles under my belt already (FireRed, Emerald), and it'd be cool if/when I beat all the gens it's considered an Ultimate, but I didn't declare it from the get-go or anything.

Also, I don't see other Gen VII runs yet, so I don't know what the ruling on this is, but I've been using what people have been calling the Pinwheel Clause for my run:

"Areas that are counted as the same place, but with vastly different encounters, and a different dropdown when you enter the area (I.E the inside and outside of Ten Carat Hill) are considered different places with separate encounters"

I feel like the selection would be very sparse without this, but if this is deemed as breaking the rules, I guess I'll start over (womp womp)

Anyway:

Pokemon Moon Nuzlocke - First Update

Z-Crystals collected: 2
Grand Trials completed: 1

Everything's going pretty smoothly! Cutiefly is probably my favorite catch so far, he solo'd 2 out 3 of Hala's mons in the grand trial fight.

Feel free, this actually falls under the "separated areas" optional rule in the OP, as it can, and has, applied to previous games as well.

I picked up my Black Nuzlocke again, and keep forgetting to post updates here. Since I've played quite a bit without posting, this update will be in the middle of things.

Just defeated Clay, which wasn't that difficult of a fight. I have a decent Grass and Water Pokemon that were able to deal great damage to the Ground Pokemon in the gym. The only problem that I had was taking Bulldoze hits, and since I imposed a "no healing items in battle" rule for this challenge, I lost a Pokemon. One that I'm sure would have been able to handle a hit if I had ever evolved her.

Current team:
Spoiler:


Zaniah the Dwebble - level 20
-Rock Smash
-Strength
-Smack Down
-Struggle Bug


Situla the Simipour - level 30
-Return
-Leer
-Bite
-Scald


Tseen Ke the Yamask - level 24
-Disable
-Will-O-Wisp
-Night Shade
-Hex


Grumium the Sandile - level 23
-Sand-Attack
-Rock Tomb
-Dig
-Assurance


Arrakis the Servine - level 31
-Return
-Growth
-Leaf Tornado
-Wrap


Kitalpha the Zebstrika - level 28
-Quick Attack
-Thunder Wave
-Flame Charge
-Shock Wave

-

Fallen Stars:
Almach the Watchog
Sirius the Herdier
Heka the Boldore

My first update on Perfect Platinum. A lot happened inbetween now and my first post. So I'll mainly focus on the gyms in this update..

The gym battle with Roark was easy until he sent out Cranidos. Geodude and Onix fell quickly to my Turtwig (at the time) but Cranidos was another story. Before I knew it he used headbutt and I watched as his hp just dropped. Luckily he survived but took a heavy hit. Panicked I switched out to Golbat to take the next hit it too almost got blown away. Stupid mistake here....I switched into Rattata and it literally got obliterated for no reason...

Next I switched back out into Golbat and it sacrificed itself so I could heal Turtwig back to full and finished it with Razor Leaf.


Once again I was back to only my starter so I added both a Geodude and a Kricketot I had caught earlier. The training montage began and they all reached the 20's.

Along the way to Gardenia I picked up a Psyduck and trained it as well thinking it would be sticking around but it was cut down by a Scyther's Pursuit in Eternia Forest. : ( I was able to get a Gastly in the Forest though.

Didn't really have trouble with Gardenia herself. She mostly just used her Turtwig to set up reflect. I can't even remember the second pokemon she had. Then against her final one Roserade I just confused it with Haunter and spammed Night Shade. It used Stun Spore to slow me down but then I finished it with Sucker Punch.

No losses this time.

I cleared out Team Plasma and recieved both the bike and an egg. No clue about what Ill go do next.

Spoiler:
Time for update number #2. Starting from where I left off I headed south through the Cycling Road on Route 206. Cleared through the trainers and decided to take a trip into Wayward Cave. Now I could sworn and maybe I'm remembering this wrong that there was a special spot to catch a Gabite inside the cave so I wanted to take my chances. But firstvI needed to get to the entrance and caught a Skorupi on my way there.
Finally reaching the cave I used a repel so I wouldn't encounter anything else while looking for that spot. Thinking it would be easy I wound up using all my repels while being lost in the cave (funny enough even the trainers inside mention how lost they are) and even lost my Graveler to a random trainer. So I give up and find the encounter that the game wants to give me which happens to be......Shuckle. > : ( I catch it then used an escape and decide to never return. No hate for Shuckle itself but I needed something else.

Continuing on I get to Route 208 where my first encounter happens to be the one who killed my Shinx....an innocent looking Bidoof. Wanting to run I capture it anyway since missing an encounter on purpose is a bad idea.

Arriving at Hearthome City I restock the items lost searching for Gabite and took a walk through Amity Square with Grotle. Didn't think I'd find an Amulet Coin during. Even received a free Eevee afterwards next to the Pokemon Center which now fills Graveler's spot. I left there and met Fantina at the Contest Hall and then headed for the gym.
Defeated all the trainers on the way to her with no problems. It dawned on me that it was Friday so I was able to head back and catch Drifloon at Valley Windworks and replaced Haunter for it. I train some more and head back to fight her.


Fantina



Duskull/Lv. 28

- Shadow Sneak
- Willo wisp
- Pursuit
- Future Sight


Haunter/ Lv. 28

- Shadow Claw
- Confuse Ray
- Hypnosis
- Sucker Punch


Mismagius/ Lv. 30

- Shadow Ball
- Psybeam
- Confuse Ray
- Magical Leaf

Leading with Flaafy against her Duskull. The first thing she tries is pursuit for whatever reason and Duskull gets paralyzed pretty quickly after Thundershock. It starts spamming Shadow Sneak and Future Sight (as if that'll work) and I counter spamming Thundershock. As usual with any gym battle she heals Duskull. So speeding things up I switch to Eevee and start using bite. I find out she has Willowisp as well...very annoying. But a few more bites and it goes down.

Next comes Haunter who is worse with Hypnosis and Confuse Ray. : / After paralyzing it with Thunderwave I was able to just whittle it away.

Finally she sends out Mismagius and I try the same thing as before....unfortunately before I knew it she outspeeds and Flaafy dies from a Shadow Ball to the face. The rest of the fight becomes a switching game due to her constantly confusing and critical hitting me with Psybeam over and over again even after having four Sand Attacks in her eyes. But finally and I finally after she misses a Confuse Ray she falls to a bite and it ends......



I decide that the best replacement for now is a Magikarp in the pc and train it until it evolves. I'll honestly miss Flaafy. : ( That's all for now.




UPDATE #2.5

Spoiler:
Slight update on this one. I would call this update #3 but not enough happened for it to be one. First thing I did was blow the rest of my money on Great balls in Hearthome City. Battled Wally and ended it quickly.

Wasn't expecting any surprises on Route 209 but to my shock a legendary appears.



Latias/ Lv. 60

Due to a glitch in the game random lengendaries can make appearances apparently and before I knew it she was infront of me. Even with the level differences I decided I'll catch it anyway. Weakining it with Dragon Rage I throw a heal ball. Literally 3 rolls and it pops out. Switch out to Krucketune and used sing and for whatever reason there barely any rolls after this. : ( Doesn't help that she had recover either. Trying to be as careful as possible not to faint it I switch back out into Gyarados and spam Dragon Rage once more this time untiil theres only like 1 or 2 hp left. Again with the sleep it continues to not be captured....now I try to be risky since ut recovers again. I think to myself I'll use Focus Energy to hopefully boost the X -Scissor on Kricketune and get a crit. Surely a Critical hit won't take it out I think. She's 30 levels above how could. I get that lucky hit and I watch as her hp drops slowly until none remains.......the worst part is hearing the cheery "Exp gained" music right after.

Had to put the game down after that one.
