i beat flannery, but i'm reporting the sad loss of needles the seviper. i didn't lose him to her, i lost him to a random numel and i knew in the back of my mind that a crit high magnitude could easily KO him, but i was being stupid. grinding up for norman now. not sure that i'll finish this before the end of the event lol but it's been fun so far. i added whitney back to the party to replace needles, also i'm not gonna list my box anymore bc it's getting to be too much.

before that all happened though, i added an aerodactyl i hatched to the team, originally replacing whitney. lol but oh well. i also passed on needles' silk scarf to whitney. anyway...

why tf sprites aren't working.................. whatever lol it's miltank, elekid, graveler, poliwhirl, vulpix, and aerodactyl.

Janp's Eggcellent Egglocke Eggventure



Once again let's start with encounters for this update:
Route 43 - Girafarig - actually 27th egg from 6th box containing Aquite, the male Mantyke
Lake of Rage - Magikarp - actually 8th egg from 3rd box containing Irony, the female Magikarp
Route 44 - Magikarp - actually 29th egg from 5th box containing Star, the - Staryu
Ice Path - Swinub - actually 10th egg from 2nd box containing Lambda, the male Abra
Blackthorn City - Magikarp - actually 25th egg from 6th box containing Hemelein, the female Wooper
Dragon Shrine - Magikarp - actually 13th egg from 2nd box containing Castor, the female Glameow
Route 27 - Tentacool - killed
Tohjo Falls - Goldeen - actually 26th egg from 1st box containing Puppis, the female Slowpoke
Route 26 - Sandslash - actually 8th egg from 5th box containing Circini, the male Rattata
Victory Road - Graveler - Selfdestruction

I was feeling unbeatable at this point. I had pretty nice team, even though it was a little bit unbalanced. Encounters were awful, but that's what you get for naming your rival Jamp.

I cleared Team Rocket HQ and easily beat Pryce with Sun. That Pokémon became my ace quickly. I pretty much only lead with her now. Hopefully she will survive all the way.

Another bunch of boring Team Rocket filler later, I got to Blackthorn and challenged Claire. Everything went well, until Kingdra appeared. Sun was badly damaged at that point, so I had to switch to someone else. I went with Zeta, but Kingdra used Hyper Beam and killed Zeta before he could even come out of Poké Ball. I then used Vega and her Toxic and Swagger combo to beat Kingdra, heal Sun and take care of rest of Claire's team.

I picked up Eridani, the Rhyhorn from the box, got some more encounters and after finishing another bunch of exploring and story stuff, grinded and challenged E4. Oh and I decided to box Merak, since I haven't used him that much and instead picked Cetus the Carnivine.

I beat Will easily with Upsilon and Sun, but after beating him, I realized I forgot to tweak my Pokémon movesets and give them held items. Never mind, I was confident in beating E4 without any deaths.

Koga's battle was a little bit scary, his Muk was able to poison few of my Pokémon, but after taking it down, rest of his team was easy. But I was running low on Upsilon's move PPs. Luckily, I had few Ethers.

Before facing Bruno, I found out I screwed up even more. I had nothing super-effective against him. I used simple strategy of stalling. I set up Toxic Spikes with Gilese and then healed/attacked until Bruno run out of Pokémon.

I don't really have much to say about Karen. I had enough Pokémon to counter her team, so no problems here.

And battle with Lance was complete joke. I started with Sun, since she knew Electric-type attack. She beat Gyarados quickly even with Intimidate debuff. I left Sun out against Dragonite and stalled through Outrage until Dragonite got confused. Then Sun finished it with few Ice Fangs. I used similar strategy of stalling and healing against remaining two Dragonites. When Lance sent out Charizard, I decided to sweep his whole team with Sun. But she run out of Thunder Fang PP before she could finish Charizard. It did not matter. Charizard barely did anything to her, so I could "waste" one turn to use my last Max Ether. And... Lance's Aerodactyl was a bigger threat than Charizard, but it still lost in the end.

And so I finally finished this run. I wish I could finish it earlier and try more saves as part of this event, but I'll do it anyway in a near future. I'm satisfied with my team and I'm glad I could use Pokémon like Qwilfish and Vespiqueen again. Hopefully you all enjoyed your runs just like me.

Champion.png

Yeehaw

the Team:
Spoiler:


Badges: 8
League victory: 1
usable pokemon: 39
RIP box: 1 (Mandey, Dugtrio, lv55)

Zeez really didn't get to do much in the league there, but what can you do
Rattle stands out as a major player against the league, excellent Exploud, A++
Very chunky HP (highest in the team), very respectable special attack (second only to Weeble), and a respectable tm movepool (and that Extrasensory eggmove!) made him very valuable

Catan and Weeble were also major players against the E4, but they're pseudo-legendaries, so it isn't nearly as impressive on their end.

Got my second badge from Brawly, and lost against Wattson! I still have a Seviper left in my PC that didn't faint yet, but seeing as how I would have a very rough time with it, I decided to end my adventure here.

Rabinov's Egglocke Challenge - Flawless Victory

Unfortunately we do have a small gap in play, due to me not picking up this in a while and forgetting what I did. That aside though, let's see how the home stretch went! I will say we went through a HUGE slog of training for my E4 team however.

Victory Within Our Grasp - Victory Road


With us obtaining Ursaring in here earlier (future planning - always good!) this meant we could storm through Victory Road with little to no interruption. With our team now averaging Level 45, it was time to slap on some Max Repel and coast through.

We reach the end with relative ease and crush our rival SEREBII. Sorry kiddo, looks like you'll have to wait to achieve your edgy dreams, weirdo.

The Final Pantheon - Elite Four & Champion


This is it. The moment this has all been building up to. It was time to finally face off against the Elite Four and defeat the Pokémon League! Thankfully I had put some thought into who I'd be using and where, so this should be a breeze, right...

Well Will went down with no hitches at all - Neptune essentially managed to solo all of his Pokémon and we didn't take any significant damage, fortunately.

Moving onto Koga... and shoot, I had completely forgot to prepare for his Pokémon in any way. Luckily, between Neptune, Hyperion and Castor he was mostly taken care of easily (although his Crobat tanked a few attacks which was scary). Onwards and upwards!

Bruno was where things for a little bit uncomfortable. I realised too late that 4 out of my 6 Pokémon were actually swept by his entire team, so I had to play this carefully. Luckily, Ganymede smashed through the Onix with relative ease and Neptune managed to tear through the Hitmon Trio... and almost got killed by Machamp. After I let out a small scream as its Rock Slide MISSED Neptune, it was time to move onto the last Elite Four.

Karen's Umbreon was, for once, demolished instantly when it took Hyperion's Hi Jump Kick to the face. Then things started to cascade down from here. Switching into her Gengar with Europa seemed like an easy move, with it being 5 levels higher AND having access to Crunch. However... I had completely forgotten that they now had access to Focus Blast. LUCKILY, the first one took Europa down to 20HP, so I dispatched one and then brought in Neptune to Night Slash the remaining one. Then her Houndoom caused a few small issues too, as again it had a move I forgot it did in HGSS: Nasty Plot. Ganymede however shone through as the Special wall of the team, tanking it and eventually getting rid of it.

Now with the scares finally over, it was time to take on Lance!

Lance started off fairly easy, with Gyarados being taken care of easily by Castor's Thunder Fang. However he became a nuisance very quickly. His first, and highest level, Dragonite again almost killed Europa, leaving it on about 15HP after using an Outrage, before being defeated. This then became a war of attrition between my healing items and his Aerodactyl, where I spent turns healing until he missed a Rock Slide and then killed him in return. After this, it was a bit easier as his Charizard could do nothing to Ganymede, so I capitalised on this to heal everyone up to full health before destroying 'Zard and the remaining Dragonites.

And with that... we were finally the Champion! Yay! We did it! It was finally over... 47 hours and 47 minutes of pain was all it took. And with that, it's a warp until we decide to venture into Kanto! Thank you Loomie and Janp for hosting this, it's been super fun and re-ignited my lvoe for Nuzlockes once more, I look forward to your next event!

late to post, but i beat norman without any losses. i don't think i'll finish the challenge between now and the deadline, but i've been having a great time!! i'll continue to play and stream it, and if this gets moved to a regular thread, i'll likely continue to update there. i've already started up on doing the surf routes btw, but the team was all at 30 when i went in.

for the heck of it I did a second run, in White this time, not really expecting to finish it before time so we didn't post about it
It is now 10 past midnight on the 5th for me.
I managed to beat N at just about midnight, and beat Ghetsis just now
it was a wild ride, but fun. Does it matter if I post it, even if we finished after the 4th by a few minutes?

(also, I found a shiny litwick while getting some sp.attack evs?? How?? Like, two shiny gastly in the LG run was weird but okay, I spent a LOT of time grinding in lavender tower, understandable, but I really wasn't in celestial tower very long overall??)

Was so busy playing other games that I didn't really feel like playing this challenge, so I rushed through it over the past few days. Overall I quite enjoyed it, in theory the deaths don't really matter that much since you get a good variety of pokemon to replace them. I do wish I got less type repeats and meme mons though. I might try it again at some point in Y so I'll download that save for later :)

well, since it'll hang around, and since I did finish almost everything in this one except Ghetsis before the 5th (to think, I might have managed to finish before midnight if only the council of our area hadn't blocked the whole bike path to widen it be a meter for some reason and the detour around taking 10-15 minutes more)

3 shiny wild ghosts across two egglockes what is going on

What I learned from this is: a ridiculous amount of things in this region have a rock move and/or bide

Anyway, it's been fun, thanks for making this!
(I will say it was incredibly hard to get the gen4 files to function, and I needed to do different things for them and I'm still not fully sure how I got them to work in the end because it was different between platinum and soul silver (was it just like this for me? I don't know. It was really weird). I did the White run because I got it working easy as anything, a full day before the others, and I figured I'd just stick with it)

forgot to post after winona, but i had no losses. came dangerously close, though. prior to getting to her though, i hatched a torchic which is a huge blessing bc it's my favorite starter lol so naturally i replaced kiara with her. i just beat tate and liza last night, very easily at that. was kind of surprised, but i think i just need to have more faith in my team. evolved poliwhirl after i beat them too. :) will be streaming the seafloor cavern and stuff tonight too!
