    Re: OT: The Nuzlocke Challenge (Pokemon)

    thats how it reads to me.

    just popped into whatever the ghost town is called. can't do the old turn the contrast trick right up to avoid using flash in the caves trick on a pc. pity.

    venosaur is lvl 43
    mr mime lvl 21
    nidorino lvl 17

    are the 3 i'm using atm. have a drowsee for flash and a bellsprout for cut. i need to luck out and get a bird for flight.
    I think i'm going to lvl nidorino and use him as my main. venosaur isn't doing much for me.

    Re: OT: The Nuzlocke Challenge (Pokemon)

    You can buy Magikarp before Mt. Moon if it's the first encounter: You didn't wander into the grasses along the Route beforehand (route 3.) Just so you know, I am just saying how I interpret the rules, and they don't actually mention trading/buying from NPC's as far as I'm aware. I think the main intention is to limit how many you can catch, as well as reduce the amount of mainstream/power types you use.
    However, in the next town (Vermilion) you get the Old Rod, and can fish within one of the towns to catch one anyway. But if you talk to an NPC, and he offers a trade, that counts as a random encounter for that area. Vermilion has someone who offers a trade for a Farfetch'd for your Spearow.

    @FoE/Skjolde - It is considered an optional rule, so FoE may just drop that one. That's all fine. I'm just clarifying, and don't want to...* impose anything anyway. This is the first runthrough with Nuzlocke rules for all of us, and I hope that they're clear enough.

    *... Skjolde - your quote is very distracting.

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

    Part 3 - Oh the Pain!
    Mount Moon and the Cerulean Gym went really well, along with the Rival Battle. What you'd expect with a well-levelled Ivysaur and Nidoqueen (evolved with a Moon Stone from Mt. Moon. But...

    A little overconfidence, met with a painful combination of sleep and supereffectiveness put Khloris and newly captured Oya in a world of pain.
    Aikami got the same treatment - Hypnosis followed by a Confusion attack - but I switched to Oya as a sacrifice. On switching back, Aikami woke up, and managed to scrape a win with 7 health remaining!

    I went to catch an Abra, but without the Sleep Powder(?) of Butterfree, I was relying on luck. Abra escaped my Pokeball, and promptly used Teleport.
    I did manage to catch a Bellsprout (not nicknamed, so probably won't use it,) and Geodude along the way, but don't intend to use it either.

    For now, it's all up to Aikami! I'm really not too good at this...

    Code:
    Current Team
    Aikami (Goddess of Love) - Nidoqueen - Level 22 - Route 22
    Geodude - Mt. Moon
    Bellsprout - Route 5
    
    RIP
    RattusZRat (Feral TV) - Rattata - Level 5 - Route 2
    Oya (Spirit of the Winds) - Spearow - Level 11 - Route 4
    Khloris (Goddess of Flowers) - Ivysaur - Level 27 - Starter
    
    First Encounter Fails
    Metapod - Level 4 - Viridian Forest
    Pidgey - Level 6 - Route 3
    Abra - Level 12 - Route 25

    Re: OT: The Nuzlocke Challenge (Pokemon)

    Tough luck Drystan! I lost my Pidgey due to being reckless. So I'm about to enter with a Butterfree, Ivysaur and a Magikarp.

    EDIT: What's so disturbing about it?

    Re: OT: The Nuzlocke Challenge (Pokemon)

    Train Butterfree until it learns Sleep Powder. It shouldn't be too long. Then it will probably be easier to catch Abra. That's what I'd do anyway, but I couldn't even catch a Metapod! :(

    I was typing that message, looked at your quote, and lost track of my thoughts. Not disturbing, but distracting.

    Re: OT: The Nuzlocke Challenge (Pokemon)

    Part 4 - It just gets better

    Route 6 to Vermilion City netted me another shot at a Pidgey (Oya Reborn), but this time, it was a successful capture. Some dude in Vermilion City gave me an Old Rod, where I promptly went fishing. Oya Reborn almost 1 hit-KO'd my chance at a Magikarp (Poseidon,) but I could just fish in another town anyway...
    After that, proceeded east and did a little levelling, came across a Drowsee (Morpheus - God of Dreams), and then into Diglett Cave to catch... A Diglett! Managed that without a problem, before getting confronted by a level 29 Dugtrio! What the hell!?! This isn't going to go down well...

    Go Aikami! Body slam!
    Dugtrio used Dig.
    *... Oh crap! Run!*
    Can't Escape.
    Dugtrio used Dig.
    It's Super Effective.
    Aikami has fainted.

    I probably should've swapped to Oya Reborn as a flying type, but thought I could escape. Oya Reborn being level 13 couldn't escape anyway, and would be KO'd pretty easily. After Aikami fainted, I threw in Morpheus (God of Dreams/Drowsee,) who prompted fainted before being able to use Hypnosis or Run.

    Here's a tip! You get the TM Whirlwind somewhere earlier. Teach it to Pidgey or Spearow. And if a Dugtrio appears and uses Dig, and you can't run... Swap to Flying and use it! I was not expecting a Dugtrio to appear with a higher level than my Aikami.

    After a near fainting of Gaia vs Spearow, we went to SS Anne to level up Gaia versing other types. Gaia didn't last long, getting promptly got knocked out by a lower level Machop, when his Dig missed the second time.

    I'm really not good at this. My top Gods, Goddesses and Spirits keep getting knocked out!

    I did some power/speed levelling (feels like abuse of emulators IMO, but as this isn't competitive, I'm somewhat okay with it) on my Spirit of the Winds and got him to do well against Dugtrios. This is a good place to train, if you've got flying types who can take a few Dugtrio attacks, and increase the speed to avoid mind-numbing running. We've all had some experience at that with D2...

    Re: OT: The Nuzlocke Challenge (Pokemon)

    I totally forgot about that rule!

    I don't feel like doing a restart, but will release the second pidgey right away

    Re: OT: The Nuzlocke Challenge (Pokemon)

    I released the pidgey and started grinding before entering mt moon. Everything was good until I met the rocket guy with the raticate. Ouch. First my freshly caught zubat got knocked out, thereafter I had to say goodbye to my lovely starter, and in the end my butterfree bit the dust before my nidoran finally got the job done. I was then down to just magikarp and nidoran.

    I grinded my nidoran and used the moon stone, so I now have a nidoqueen. She's beautiful and her name is Jeffrey. The next cathcable monster I met was a rattata. sigh. He's called James and I grinded him to lvl 20 where he becomes raticate. Hyperfang is decent, but it really is a sucky pokemon. I then proceeded to catch a Bellsprout, Jeremy, which I am quite exited about. It was very easy to grind till lvl 21 where it evolves. Also I needed a grass pokemon after letting my bulbasaur go. Also, sleep powder. Yeah.

    So after beating my rival, Skjolde, I won the next badge. Jeremy took care of the water pokemons and it was easy peasy. My team know consists of:

    Jimmy, lvl 13 magikarp
    Jeremy, lvl 23 weepinbell
    Jeffrey, lvl 23 nidoqueen
    James, lvl 20 raticate

    Will start grinding Jimmy in the next area, but he needs tons of xp and.. yeah.. is a magikarp.

    Re: OT: The Nuzlocke Challenge (Pokemon)

    So, I couldn't even make it out of mt. moon..

    My butter free died, due to my own stupidity. Which was a shame, it owned absolutely everything with its confusion. Then all I got left was a Ivysaur and a under leveled Geodude. I lost against some trainers Zubat. And did I mention that I ran out of potions? Arg.. This puts me in a bad mood.
