    Hi. My name's Freya. As if you guys can't read my username or anything.



    I'm going to attempt a Nuzlocke challenge with Pokémon Brown, the most awesome/unparalleled hack ever. Or at least until that new beta of Prism comes out. /fangirl rant over.


    And you guys get to watch me fail.



    If you don't know what a Nuzlocke Challenge is, prepare to be enlightened. It's a play-through of a pokémon game with a few simple, easy (lie) rules, that I didn't come up with, or create, or anything.



    1. If a pokémon faints, you must release it as soon as possible. 'Cause it's dead. No revives.
    2. You can ONLY catch the first pokémon you encounter in a route/cave/town/area/whatever. If you defeat the first pokémon you see, you get nothing from this area.
    3. Obviously if you run out of pokémon, you must start again.
    4. Potions, healing items of any kind in fact, are DISALLOWED.
    5. Give your pokémon nicknames.
    6. Battle style is set to SET.


    I have a feeling I'm going to love getting poisoned.

    If I lose, I'll speed run back to where I was, probably with different pokémon.

    Sounds amazingly fun, right? Of course it is.


    Let's get to it, then. Of course, there's no Nuzlocke-ness in this post, just the same crap every Let's Play starts off with. Except with 100% less sexual references/swear words.

    . . . And suddenly, everyone is gone.

    Spoiler:




    Oh hai steelix.






    Pryce?!

    Where is here? Am I dead? Arceus knows you're old enough to be dead. . .





    Oh. I'm in a land Called Rijon. Yay. I can read.





    OhIgetit. He's Tiny Tim, from 'A Christmas Carol.' *crickets* Mew bless us, everyone?





    Pokémon tutor? Really? That's like the most pointless job ever. He's gotta be doing something else under the table. *shifty eyes*





    A gligar, eh? Wait, why does it sound exactly like a ratatta? *insert obligatory Baro/Tiny Tim is a sorcerer reference here*






    Young man? What are you, blind? Poor old Tiny Tim.





    Yup. That's my name.






    What? Who have I met, other than you? Is everyone else invisible? Did you go senile? Are they ninjas?





    How do you know about my mother? Ohmygod, he must have cameras set up everywhere! CONSPIRACY! I knew the pokémon tutor thing was a lie! He's a super spy!





    Fat chance. Also, its spelled tomorrow. :P






    And now I'm small. Whee. He must've used his super-spy shrink ray.





    I walked downstairs.





    I have a father? Where is he? Did Tim capture him or something? Was he a spy too? I wanna be a spy! I'll be just like Angelina Jolie!





    I actually like this color.





    Mura? Who calls themselves Mura? Who lets their kids call themselves Mura? OhIgetit. It's a code name.






    So it is. Is that a code message? Do you work for Russia? *gasp* Maybe I work for Russia! I live in a normal house, with my parents! They must be Russian spies!





    I dunno, it is pretty long.





    At least I'm not a 'pokémon tutor.'






    How can he walk so fast with that cane? *shifty eyes * And he suddenly looks like Oak. CONSPIRACY!






    I follow him, like the stupid naive idiot that I am. Whee.






    The fabled Mura makes his appearance. Aww Mew, he must be blind too. Bless his heart.





    Yeah, yeah, sure. I just want out of here. It smells like death and liver spots.





    Blah blah blah, long story short, his grandfather wanted to be a master. A master spy, perhaps?






    Did I just talk?






    The 'silent protagonist' just said something and all he says is “Good to know?” Gee, thanks. Okay, okay, I'll take one, but I wanna talk to 'Mura' first.







    You know what? Screw you Mura.





    Well, the mother of all choices. Do I want the fire/flying weak to nearly everything pokemon; do I want the pure water type with good defense; or do I want the pokemon that can't be poisoned but is weak to the strongest types in the game?


    Remember, if it faints, it's gone. *sniff*

      Go with water. You need defense, as the point is not to die.

      It's cool to see a Nuzlocke LP. I've learned about them the other day, in some other board, and though they're cool, although I've never tried it myself.

      I dunno. That immunity to poison sounds pretty enticing. I've never done a Nuzlocke challenge before (though I had heard about it before seeing this) so I may not be a whole lot of help but I can see how poison could be a pain in the neck, especially since healing items are forbidden. Eh, but that's just my opinion.

      Good luck with that. >.>

        Squirtle. I nuzlocke'd through FireRed and Squirtle (Blastoize) was one of only two Pokemon left after the champion The Elite Four was a slaughter.

          First time I've heard about a Nuzlocke Challenge. It sounds kinda hard XD.
          The narration is good and brown is an awesome hack, which sums up to an awesome LP.
          Oh, and choose water :D

          Water/Grass since you need to survive here. ;D
          I'd personally choose water, as it has good defense. :)

            I'm not gonna suggest which pokemon you should choose, as in the end you're gonna make your own choive regardless of what we say.
            But, I must say this is one funny LP, and I'm gonna keep an eye on it!
            Good luck!

              Venusaur is a godsend in games when you don't have Antidotes. Even when it's weak to psychic, it is neutral to ground, so... eh.

              Also, it has Instacrit razor leaf.

                I seriously wish you luck. The first time I played Brown, I came out of a house in the middle of the city and couldn't get anywhere. I gave up. Hey- here is a good idea- Do some hardcore grinding and heal (if allowed at PC Centers) often. That way, you're high abovethe normal level for the area. Then it'll be easy. Kind of.

                  That would be pretty tough... considering that the trainer/gym pokemon are really high levels in this game. The final dungeon has like 10 trainers with lvl 98-100 pokemon lol. (Still beatable with lvl 60-70 pokemon, but I'm pretty sure you'd have to heal.)

                  I think you're gonna have to abuse the high level pokemon patch of grass in Merson City a lot. Like, catch a bunch of pidgey there, and keep them around as backups/throwaways. Maybe even just use one all the way through.

                        I've nuzlocked this before, and while I got screwed over several times by entering areas I was supposed to enter WAY later, overall it went pretty well.

                        Also, pick Bulbasaur. It's going to be a real bro.


                        Edit: Wait, this thread has almost been a month old? I didn't even notice that...

                          Wow, a brown LP! I loved Brown, it;s one of the best hacks I've ever played! Your style of humor is pretty funny, too! Good you don't use any swearing, I hate that in LPs! I hope you keep enjoying Brown so that the LP's quality won't sink!

                          Oh, and choose Bulba. Although I've never nuzlocked before, I can imagine that poison can be a real pain since you're losing every Pokemon that faints... And Leech Seed and the HP-sucking attacks can be useful, too!

                            There's a problem: Brown is a very weird and complicated hack which is hard even to complete normally. I didn't know how to get strength for a week of playing. xD
                            However, i might compete. As i have completed it before,it won't be hard.
                            When will it start?

                            It's a forest guardian that pities how bad a type Grass is, so it gets moves to help out Grass-types, but is smart enough not to be Grass-type itself. The appearance is simply mimicry to hide from humans.

                              By reading the comments, I noticed certain things.
                              Have you seen the movie Salt? Angelina Jolie, Russian spies,... I haven't seen the movie yet myself.
                              Anyway, let's not get offtopic.


                              This seems like a real challenge. I wonder if it's also possible to do on other games/hacks?

                                I, uh, promise that I haven't given up on this. My motherboard decided that it was going on strike. . . Permanently. Since I have a new computer now, I should have the next update out soon.

                                    By the way, the original Nuzlocke Challenge only had these rules:

                                    1. If a pokémon faints, you must release it as soon as possible. 'Cause it's dead. No revives.
                                    2. You can ONLY catch the first pokémon you encounter in a route/cave/town/area/whatever. If you defeat the first pokémon you see, you get nothing from this area.
                                    3. Obviously if you run out of pokémon, you must start again.

                                    Many Nuzlocke challenges add extra rules or variations on the rules, such as the last three, nicknames being the most common.

                                    I personally use SHIFT (not SET) and allow healing items, but I only grind up to the next trainer's highest level Pokemon (usually a gym leader). It's no fun when you can just grind 10 levels higher than everyone.
