Welcome, reader. Hope you're having a great day, if not, never mind, the best is yet to come, so hope for it!😀

Alright, here is my nuzlocke run of Pokemon Omega Ruby. This is my first ever Nuzlocke run of a Pokemon game, rather, the first ever Pokemon challenge I'm taking. I didn't think I'd ever do one, but I thought it would be a lot of fun to go through. Given below are the rules I will be following:

Rules

1: Standard Nuzlocke rules and the main rules featured in this thread.
2: Nickname every Pokemon I catch.
3: Shiny clause
4: Dupes clause
5: Exp. Share is not allowed
6: No legendaries or mythicals will be used.
7: I won't heal in Pokemon centers.
.

Also, if there is something I can improve upon, please do let me know!

Well, pretty much that's it, so let's jump into Hoenn for the umpteenth time! (Well, personally, at least)

Post 1:

I start off with the username Siddhar, as per usual, choosing to play as the male protagonist. I choose Treecko as my starter. (Welcome aboard, Vatika, let's give our very best on this one!)
Anyway, Not counting Treecko as a catch, I catch a Poochyena(with Thunder Fang) at route 101. (Heya, Kali! Aren't you electrifyingly Dark?)

I proceed to finish the initial obligations of battling May and teaching Wally how to catch Pokemon which I believe he did on his own.

In route 102, I catch a Zigzagoon, level 5. (I need you for the HMs, I won't let you die, Matryoshka!) It knows no attacking move, so I'm switch training it. I could only play for 45 minutes. This is my team after today’s session:

Spoiler:

POST 2:
After the previous session, I thought I was ready for anything. Well, naturally, there were issues, but I have to bear them.
Kali and Vatika had close shaves and I was frightened, obviously. Yet, I could make my way out of this situation, as Matryoshka(who at this point didn't even have a single attack) reduced the opponent Pokemon's accuracy and attack, because of which I'm happy I didn’t miss out on Zigzagoon.
Money is never a problem,though, as I can battle a trainer and get enough money for Potions and a Pokeball(which, in this case, aren't that useful).

There are some strange things in Hoenn that I always forget. WHY would you use a Full Restore on your Zigzagoon, Rich Boy Winston ? Also, Lady Cindy, that was ridiculous! (And hilarious) :
Spoiler:



I could defeat Roxxane with ease, but then the problems started showing up. As I had chosen not to visit Pokemon centers, the PP of my Pokemon's moves were running out (Insert Joseph Joestar's OH NO!) and I could barely do anything to prevent it. I found ethers at the right nick of time(luck's good),though. The PP issue is worrying as there won't be as many ethers and elixirs lying around as the Potions. I'm waiting desperately to get my hands on Leppa Berries, because Kali's out of Thunder Fang. She's got Bite, but it won't stay for long. The same is the case for Vatika, who learned Mega Drain, which just has 15 PP, and I have already used it 7 times.

At the moment, I'm parked at Granite Cave, where Toxa, a female Level 12 Zubat, joined the team(No boys so far, heh). Also, Matryoshka was taught Cut, which happens to be its first attacking move. My team's weak to Brawly's as well. Though Toxa will learn Wing Attack next level, Brawly's got some Rock type moves up his sleeve, if I recall correctly. I hope for the best! Nuzlockes are fun and thrilling, aren’t they? Anyway, here's my team after today’s playthrough:

Spoiler:

After another hour and a half of gameplay, a lot of things happened. It wasn't totally a good outing this time.

After a bit of training, Vatika evolved into Grovyle and Toxa learned Wing Attack. This was super helpful in the second gym.
I picked up the courage to face Brawly and I did face him, but the battle hardly lasted two minutes. Toxa dealt with his Machop with ease and OHKO'ed his Makuhita with a critical hit. I was pleasantly shocked. Yippee, the second badge!
After going through the story, meeting Steven and docking at Slateport, I met up with Team Magma. This was the most intense Team Magma fight, as the theme really matched the feeling of the battle. The foe Numel's flame burst wrecked Kali. It was a critical hit. I knew this had to happen sometime, but not now. I was aghast, because, well, she died... (Kali, you fought bravely, blinded your paralyzed opponents, and deafened them with you howls. May your soul rest in peace...). The next battle nearly took Matryoshka(yikes), but I managed to hold on and defeat the grunts. Maxie's consequent warning seemed real for the first time.

sigh Next, I took on the trainers in the routes, nothing special, but finally something epic happened. I found the Leppa Berries! It was a celebratory moment for me, though I was mourning Kali's death. I began a farm immediately, by planting two of the four berries I had got. The other noticeable thing that took place was me getting the contest pass, which increases my chance of getting Leppa Berries.
So, here's the team after today's playthrough:
Spoiler:
TEAM
1) Vatika (Grovyle - Female)

Level 18
Moves:
1) Rock Tomb
2) Pursuit
3) Mega Drain
4) Quick Attack


2) Matryoshka ( Zigzagoon - Female)

Level 15
Moves:
1) Charm
2) Headbutt
3) Sand Attack
4) Cut


3) Toxa (Zubat - Female)

Level 15
Moves:
1) Leech Life
2) Steel Wing
3) Wing Attack
4) Bite

Here lie those who fought bravely, but could not make it:

I have a tight academic schedule for the next two weeks, so I won't be able to post regularly.

Getting to the nuzlocke, Melian the Minun joined our team(It's still a girls' team). Toxa, my Zubat, died. Yep. Indeed, it is the truth. It was a total disaster, as a critical hit Spark from a trainer's Plusle took Toxa down... Ouch. Mismanagement.

Since then, I have been grinding a bit more. Melian, whom I caught at level 12, is now Level 18. Vatika is now level 21, which is not much, as I won't be requiring it as much as Melian for the battle against May. I only remember her having a Wailmer and Combusken, as I'm sure she's got three Pokemon on her team as of now. Matryoshka is of Level 17 now. The Leppa Berry farming has been good, as I could harvest 14 berries, out of which 7 were planted and 5 were used, which leaves 2 berries.

Anyway, I've a big challenge ahead of me(from my perspective, that is), so I'm nervous about it. Combusken is a tough Pokemon to beat when you've got no flying type. More grinding is on the way, as it's going to get even tougher on the road ahead. Yet, we are Pokemon trainers, not afraid of challenges, are we? So bring it on!!

Why did you summon a bat against an Electric mon in the first place? But overall, this is very good! Coincidentally you started this around the time I came back to my ORAS nuzrun’s delta episode (I have completed that by now). Keep it up!

I was being stupid:( It was against those twins who send out Plusle and Minun. I didn't want my Zigzagoon, which was running low on HP, to die because I did not want to sacrifice a HM friend. I thought the bat would take it, but it broke, so R.I.P. This is one of my silliest mistakes, smh.
Also, it's awesome that you finished the ORAS nuzrun of yours, cheers :)

All right, after a hectic week(probably not as much as yours, but I couldn't post because of businesses) I'm looking forward to another four days that are tightly packed.

I did not miss out on continuing the Nuzlocke. I was not confident of facing May with the team I had, her Combusken could single-handedly wipe out my team. so I went fishing and caught the 'karp, who is now known as Alex, at Level 10.
Spoiler:

I could do a bit of grinding each day during the gap between the previous update and this. I ended up beating May with ease (and I always seem to forget that she has a Shroomish, but I always remember the Wailmer of hers for some reason).

The team in the previous post has changed in two ways in terms of the Pokemon. No Pokemon died, so that's something I am happy about. The other thing, two of my team members evolved, Alex and Matryoshka. Matryoshka also learned Rock Smash now, which is good for a HM friend, I guess.
The Leppa Berry farming has swelled up to a produce of 56 berries(7 berries per tree, 8 trees grown). Thus ends my struggle for conserving PP. This berry growing is broken in ORAS. Had it been SM or USUM, it wouldn't have been this easy. The next target is the Mauville gym, of course, but I'd like to battle the Winstrate family, or was it the Winston family? :P

The team looks like this now:
Spoiler:
TEAM
1) Vatika (Grovyle - Female)

Level 23
Moves:
1) Rock Tomb
2) Pursuit
3) Leaf Blade
4) Quick Attack


2) Matryoshka (Linoone - Female)

Level 20
Moves:
1) Charm
2) Cut
3) Headbutt
4) Rock Smash


3) Melian (Minun - Female)

Level 22
Moves:
1) Swift
2) Echoed Voice
3) Electro Ball
4) Copycat


4) Alex (Gyarados - Male)

Level 20
Moves:
1) Splash - pretty OP, tbh
2) Tackle
3) Bite



These souls are at peace:
