    OT: The Nuzlocke Challenge (Pokemon)

    The Nuzlocke Challenge
    Pokemon Blue


    Round 1 Starts on Post #2 (Pokemon Blue)
    Round 2 Starts on Post #84 (Pokemon LeafGreen)


    Round 3 (informal) Starts on Post ~#155 (Pokemon Silver)
    Round 4 (informal) Starts on Post #187 (Pokemon Emerald)

    Why is this thread here?

    This thread is here so that fellow member(s) undertaking this challenge can easily communicate with each other, so that we can post updates on our party, help each other out, and in general just chat about the Nuzlocke Challenge we are undertaking. Private Messages are not always a great option, as only 10 can be stored, and Wall posts are also difficult, as they have a 1000 character limit.
    The Nuzlocke Challenge can be a competition, where speed and times are counted, and the winner is decided by the furthest Gym reached, or the fastest to defeat the Elite Four. We are doing this as a co-op, where we share details, and tips and advice are welcome when asked. No need for time recordings either.

    In this instance, we are loading up one of the original games, Pokemon Blue, which we both played 10+ years ago. The Nuzlocke Challenge ruleset we are playing by is to increase the challenge, as well as use Pokemon we wouldn't normally use.

    So that's why this thread is here, and what it's about.
    Enjoy!

    Re: OT: The Nuzlocke Challenge (Pokemon)

    Due to a small muck up, I have had an early restart, based on rule #3.a).

    Drystan

    Part 1 - Starters and Rivals


    Well. I found out about this challenge recently, and thought it would be fun. Sort of like HardCore for Pokemon. This first update will be relatively short and simple. The Pokemon Blue game goes like this:

    - Name Character and Rival
    - Take Potion out of PC (Huh!?! Why can't my Laptop store food for me!)
    - Walk into tall grass, and have an old man invite you into his house. Seems legit.
    - Be offered one of three Pokemon: Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. My random roll resulted in Bulbasaur as my starter.
    - Rival Battle #1 - Went pretty well. Five or six Growls, followed by straight up attacks.
    - Do an errand between Pallet Town and Viridian City's Pokemart, and run into first random encounter with no Pokeballs.

    From there, I did some training on Route 22, as well as Route 2, and caught a female Nidoran and a Ratata. After some unfocused training, RattusZRat fainted. Whoops... Great start.
    So I went along, and trained Khloris (Bulbasaur) to level 13, and faught the second Rival battle.

    Next up: Viridian Forest and Pewter City Gym. Also, pictures coming up sometime.

    Code:
    Current Team:
    
    Khloris (Goddess of Flowers) - Bulbasaur - Level 13 - Starter
    Aikami (Goddess of Love) - Nidoran (f) - Level 4 - Route 22
    
    RIP
    RattusZRat - Ratata - Level 5 - Route 2 - Feral TV

    Re: OT: The Nuzlocke Challenge (Pokemon)

    Hi Drystan!

    A very small update for me. Only played about an hour so far.

    Random.org chooses bulbasaur for me. The first fight with the rival, went okish. Lot's of growl, that's for sure.
    Same as Drystan, first encounter was without a pokeball. Instead I have leveled my Bulbasaur up to 11 and saved the game.

    Planning to make some more progress tomorrow, I seriously need some sleep.

    Wow. I would get in if I only still had my Pokemon Red. I have Pokemon Gold on my GBC. Good Luck!

    Re: OT: The Nuzlocke Challenge (Pokemon)

    @dj : Just find an emulator - that's what I'm using. I'm using one that lets you increase the speed as well. The original walking speed was slow, not to mention the occasional grinding. I haven't had to do much yet, as my capture and survival rates aren't all that good. It's been a great start...
    Not many people have the original Blue/Red cartridge, or the old GameBoy any more either. It was released 14-16 years ago afterall. Really, it's been that long! I'll PM a link if you're interested in joining.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Part 2 - Veridian Forest and Pewter City Gym

    Veridian Forest - Damn you! First encounter was a Metapod, level 4. Leach seeded it to slowly reduce it's life, and when it reached around 1/4 health, I threw a Pokeball. And another one... And another! No! This is a great chance at a Butterfree!
    Metapod has fainted.

    ...

    Khloris vs Brock

    Brock has a pretty rocky relationship with his Pokemon. They look tough, but they don't respect their trainer, and Khloris easily took them down with Vine Whip at level 15.

    Heading east towards Mount Moon, my two overlevelled Pokemon breezed through most of the trainers there, but one gave me a scare. Someone with a level 14 Spearow, using Peck. Needed a potion in there, but otherwise, not really too bad.
    But on that route, I encountered a wild Pidgey. Ohh, nice! Two attacks, and it faints! Ack!

    I failed to catch two first encounters, and have already managed to knock one of mine out! On the plus side, it's so much easier training only two than a whole team.

    Next up: Mt. Moon and Cerulean City

    Code:
    Current Team
    Khloris (Goddess of Flowers) - Bulbasaur - Level 15 - Starter
    Aikami (Goddess of Love) - Nidoran (f) - Level 14 - Route 22
    
    RIP
    RattusZRat - Rattata - Level 5 - Route 2 - Feral TV
    
    First Encounter Fails
    Metapod - Level 4 - Viridian Forest
    Pidgey - Level 6 - Route 3

    Re: OT: The Nuzlocke Challenge (Pokemon)

    going to double post to throw out an update.

    rolled up a bulbasaur which makes me abit sad is he is my least liked of the starters. but atleast he is an earlygame powerhouse.
    he is now level 27 having just rolled over brock and misty and my rival (kestegs be thy name) and completed the nugget bridge.

    ivysaur- lvl 27
    nidoran male - lvl 5
    weedle - lvl 5
    caterpie - lvl 4
    rattata - lvl 10
    abra - lvl 10

    are my catches so far. accidently killed a couple and forgot to avoid the grass in the lead up to mt moon so i couldn't buy the fish of DOOOOM
    forgot about the kid who likes shorts and wields a lvl 14 spearow. he scared the shorts off me before he died.

    Re: OT: The Nuzlocke Challenge (Pokemon)

    In blue, when evolved from abra to kadabra, do you have to try it to evolve it into alakazam?

    And damn you're quick Corax. I just catched Metapod and Pidgey. Pretty happy with metapod, I like it when it evolves into butterfree.

    If I remember correctly Alakazam can only be gotten by trading with someone else. I'll join next Thursday (after my midterms).
