So the game starts and I nickname my rival Yoshi. I watch the TV, and go downstairs and talk to my rival in my hometown. We go to Verity Lakefront and randomly get attacked by two Starly. Happy day. I choose Chimchar to give myself a challenge, cuz he isn't that bulky and the first Gym Leader has Rock types. So yeah.
So I beat the Starly who have no intention of beating me whatsoever. I get the Running Shoes(thank god) and I "grind" a bit on Route 201 before going to Sandgem, where Chimchar learns Ember and Taunt and gets nice EVs in Attack and Speed, and stop when Chimchar levels up to Level 10. Then I listen to the professor babble, and he gives me the Pokedex. Then I name my Chimchar Mario because he is red. Yeah, I know, not very creative, but whatever. I go to Route 202 after talking to my mom who doesn't seem to care about me(and I get the Journal) and get Pokeballs from Dawn. Now the story gets interesting, I guess. I go right in the grass hoping for something good. And what do I get? A Shinx. Sweet! At level 3, it's okay, but I know I'll be able to grind. Fearing I will OHKO it with any of my moves, I chuck a Pokeball. It doesn't catch it.
After wasting four Pokeballs on it, I hit it with Scratch, and thankfully, it doesn't kill it. My last Pokeball...I chuck it, and...it catches it.
So my newest member:
I name it Toad. I dunno why, it just came to me. I go back to the Pokemon Center after healing it because of Scratch, and continue on Route 202. I grind for a bit by switching into Chimchar and killing all of those Shinx and Bidoof and Starly. Shinx was close to dying after a Trainer got a critical hit on hit and left it on 3 HP. That was close. I finally get to Jubilife and go to the Trainer's School, where my rival Yoshi is waiting. I give him the Parcel, he gives me the Town Map, and he leaves. I fight the Trainers inside, and Shinx levels up. I get the Hidden Power TM and and the Poketch. So that's it for now. I'm not going to do an MVP yet, because not much exciting happened. Bye!
I start off by exploring Jubilife to its fullest, going everywhere in the city(excluding the GTS) and getting everything I can get. Then I go and fight my rival. I thought it would be hard, but it wasn't. I got lucky with two critical hits with Toad and put his Piplup on low yellow. Then I just finish it off with Mario. He babbles, and then I catch my Pokemon on Route 203. It's a Shinx. Darn it. I decide not to catch it and go to Route 204, and I find and catch a Budew. Yes!
I decide to name it Luigi because he's green. Then I grind for a while, laughing every time I burned a Bidoof or Starly with Ember, and then stop when Mario hits level 13 and Luigi hits level 10 and learns Stun Spore. My team's looking pretty nice, so I continue on Route 204, fighting the Trainers who are no good. Mario levels up again, and what? Mario is evolving!
I was pretty surprised because I forgot it evolved at level 14. And then it learned Mach Punch(I deleted Scratch). Cool! But what a forgotten Pokemon....anyway, now I have more of a chance against the first Gym Leader, Roark(I think that's his name), so yeah. I go the Mart for some Pokeballs and Potions, and then I go inside Ravaged Cave for a new Pokemon, and I run into Zubat. Niiice. After using Stun Spore with Budew, I catch it in my second Pokeball. So, without further ado:
So I know I have to start training it, but I've done enough for now. I rushed through it so much I forgot to name it in the game, but when I get to the Name Rater, I'll name it Waluigi. Oh yeah, the mascot! Here's the MVP for this session:
My Mario not only finished off my rival, but evolved to help me to level up Luigi to level 10. Good job, Mario! Until next time!
So I go back onto Route 203. I'm a little bummed because I didn't catch any Pokemon on this route, but oh well. I grind for a bit and train Zubat to level 7, and level up Budew in the process. I go back and grind a bit more with Budew in Ravaged Cave, and then move on toward Oreburgh, fighting more useless Trainers, and continue through Oreburgh Gate and get Rock Smash, and fight two more bad Trainers. I talk to a kid as I enter Oreburgh, and he actually says "newbie", but he spelt it newbie. What a newbie.
I quickly run north to Route 207, and guess who I find there? Machop! I Stun Spore it, and then bring in Toad to Tackle it a few times. I chuck a Pokeball, and ta-da! Caught.
So Machop is the newest member of my team, and I once again rush through to forget to nickname it. I will be nicknaming it Donkey Kong, because it's strong.
I grind a bit more and Luigi levels up, learning Mega Drain(which I delete Absorb for). Then I go into the Oreburgh Mine and find myself a Geodude. I Low Kick a few times, and chuck a Pokeball. And ta-da! Caught.
Again, I forget for the third time to give it a nickname. I'll be nicknaming it Goomba, just because I want to. I don't explore Oreburgh Mine quite yet, because I think I've done enough. Time for the MVP:
Helped me in some Trainer battles, and learned a few new moves that helped me eventually catch Goomba and Donkey Kong. Thanks Luigi!
I start off by re-entering Oreburgh Mine and fighting a few wild Pokemon(Geodude and such). With Luigi's Mega Drain, it's no problem, and it's a breeze Trainer-wise, except for one Trainer who almost killed Toad. Focus Energy makes me nervous. Anyway, I talk to Roark, listen to him talk for a few seconds, and he says that I can challenge him at the Gym. Okey-dokey. Time to go to the Gym. I feel like grinding a bit more, since Luigi mauls these Geodude easy. Then I see an Onix. Man, I wish I had an Onix. Oh well. At least it yields some decent EXP. Mario levels up to Level 15, and Geodude levels up to Level 8 and learns Rock Polish. Cool. I level up Geodude to Level 10, Zubat to Level 10, and Machop to Level 11, and some more leveling and move learning happens. Then I go to the Gym after exploring the city(got the Pal Pad, if it matters). I stock up on Potions just in case, and Luigi plows through those Trainers like nobody's business. Now I have to fight Roark. This battle deserves a whole paragraph...
Nah. Not really. Luigi OHKO's his first Geodude, and learns Worry Seed by leveling up to Level 16(strongest member in the partay) Onix is a pushover as well. Now for his Cranidos, the demon of this gym. I've had trouble with it in the past when I wasn't Nuzlocking, and I don't want to lose Luigi, so I take it carefully. Nah, just kidding. I 3-shot it with Mega Drain. And just like that, I've gotten past the first gym! I'm super glad I got Budew on Route 204. I get the badge, and so that's it for now. Time for our MVP, but I think you can guess it already:
He literally beat the entire gym for me. Thanks, bud(no pun intended)! Hope you evolve soon!
It feels pretty nice to have my first Gym Badge on a Nuzlocke. On previous Nuzlockes I couldn't even get past the first Gym, and somehow I feel attached to my Pokemon. Enough of that, I leave the Gym, and I expect someone to bash into me, but nobody does.
I heal up and run back to Jubilife because I don't feel like grinding, and my rival bashes into me and babbles. There it is. I fight a few Geodude at Oreburgh Gate with Donkey Kong, and then run through Route 203. I go past the GTS cuz I can, and then some random kid tells me I have a fiery personality. *don't know how to respond* I go into the Poketch place and get the Memo Pad app, but I can't go in the Radio Tower because the stupid clown won't move. For fun I run into him a few times, but he won't budge. I wonder why....anyway, I go north and see Team Galactic. You know, the people with the bad hairstyles? Yeah, them. I'm telling you, these guys are the least evil of all of the Teams out there. Team Rocket killed a Marowak, Team Magma/Aqua tried to control Groudon and Kyogre, and Team Plasma plain tries to take over the world. This team just tries to see who can find the best space rock. Dialga and Palkia don't even care about them, and Giratina just mauls Cyrus...moving on, I fight the Galactic members with no problem. Mario finishes the job. Lucky for me, I get to see Turtwig.
They babble some more, and the only thing that is interesting is when Rowan says 90% of all Pokemon are tied to evolution. Yeah, too bad, you demon cow! Alright, back to reality. The Radio Tower is now open, so I explore it(failing at the Lottery Corner, and beating the Trainer). I run through Route 204 and teach Goomba Rock Smash. I semi-grind because Donkey Kong can crush these Geodude, and I get Rock Tomb in Ravaged Cave, and teach it to Goomba(removing Defense Curl). At least it has a decent attack. Then I fight some more bad Trainers on the northern part of Route 204(one of the Trainers says one-shot
), get Bullet Seed(not sure if I should have Luigi learn this just yet) and enter Floaroma Town. I get Pluck and see Team Galactic again....:/ Then I get the Sprayduck Watering Can(yeah, I'm gonna use that) and a Chesto Berry. Then I head toward Route 205, thinking I'll get a Pokemon, but nope, Team Galactic won't let me pass...grr. Anyway, I go to Valley Windworks to catch a Pokemon, and it is....Buizel! Now I can get a cool Water type to Surf with. I do the same routine, Stun Spore + Tackle, and I catch it on the first Pokeball. This is the fourth time I've forgotten to nickname a Pokemon. Again, when I get to Eterna, I'll nickname it Koopa. I don't know why, I'm just going to(it's kinda like a Koopa). I'm debating whether or not to put it on my team, but when the time comes I may use it. Then I fight the Team Galactic member, which was a piece of cake with Donkey Kong. Then I go back to Floaroma and beat the other Galactic members, and I get the key. I grind some more at the Windworks, because I need D.K. to fight Purugly and Toad lacks an Electric move. Hopefully it'll learn Spark soon. D.K. levels up to Level 16, Waluigi levels up to level 11, Luigi to level 18, and Toad to level 15(it learns Bite. Yesss). And then, Toad starts glowing!
Woo! I've been waiting for this. I was really glad Toad evolved, but it still didn't learn Spark. Oh well. I thought I was ready for Mars and her fat cat, so I went in and thrashed the Grunts. Goomba levels up again, and then I challenge Mars. I know she has Zubat, so I start with Goomba. I 2-shot Zubat with Rock Tomb, but before it dies it used Toxic. It doesn't really matter, though. Now comes the cat that ate a little too much Meow Mix, Purugly. I send in D.K and Karate Chop it after it uses Fake Out. I switch into Mario and use Mach Punch for the KO. Not too hard. Mario levels up from the Purugly. Take that, Mars! Anyway, I listen to Mars babble, then I listen to the guy babble, and then I run back to Floaroma and spread honey on the tree next to the house in the meadow. That's enough for now. Our MVP today is:
D.K. (Donkey Kong)
He took down Purugly for the most part, and also leveled up a few levels. Nice job, D.K.!
So I start the game up and notice the tree isn't shaking yet. I hope not to forget that there's Honey on it. Oh well. I head over to Route 205, and what do I find? A Buizel.
I don't want to catch it, cuz I already have one. But I had Goomba active and couldn't run, so I thought it would finish me off, but fortunately it used Pursuit. I switched into Luigi and ran out of the grass. So I fight the Trainers along the route, and prepare to grind because of Cheryl's magical healing powers. On the way, everyone except for Luigi levels up(and Goomba levels up twice). I spam Cheryl's healing and grind a bunch. Since I'll be grinding a bunch, I'll let you guys see this part, and then update a bit later. Okay, so I grinded in Eterna Forest, and everyone in my party is Level 18+, even Waluigi. Lots of move-learning happens, like Waluigi learning Wing Attack and Goomba learning Magnitude. I rush through Route 205 East(I don't catch a Pokemon because I don't consider it the same route), and then I finally get to Eterna. I get the Explorer Kit, nickname all of my Pokemon(BTW, nicknamed Machop Diddy Kong because Donkey Kong didn't fit by one letter, and D.K. sounded wierd), I met Cynthia, and go to Route 206 to get a Pokemon. It turns out to be Bidoof, but I catch it anyway.
I nickname it Hammer Bro for lack of a better name. Then I go to the Gym because there's nothing else to do at this point, but decide to actually challenge the gym later. And now, the MVP:
There wasn't much that I actually did, but Waluigi went from Level 11 to Level 18 after grinding for a while. Learning Wing Attack was one of the best things that could have happened. Yay! It'll evolve soon, I promise.
So in this very short session, I challenge the Gym. It was pretty easy, all I did was spam Waluigi's Wing Attack, which leveled it up twice and learned Confuse Ray, and then I fought the Gym Leader. Roserade made me a little nervous, but I managed to kill it with Mario after 2-shotting her Cherubi and Turtwig. Yay! Two badges. I taught Luigi Cut and got Thief. I will add to this soon after I challenge Jupiter. *Update* So I'm going to challenge Jupiter to finish up this session. I take down the weak Grunts at the computers, and then it's time for Jupiter and her demon skunk. I know I can beat her, but I heal just in case. Like Mars, I know she has Zubat, so I start with Goomba and 1-shot it after it gets a flinch on Bite. Fearing Skuntank, I send in Mario, because Night Slash won't do much. It's part Fighting, and I'm playing this in the morning.
I use Taunt, and lucky for me, it tried to use Smokescreen. I use Flame Wheel, which burns it, but it gets a critical hit with Night Slash(which only took away 16 from it Mario's 59 HP). I Flame Wheel it again, and then it uses its Sitrus Berry, which isn't too much of a problem. It Night Slashes for 8 damage(
) and then I Flame Wheel for the KO. Mario and Goomba both level up from the battle, so just like that, I beat Jupiter. I get the Bicycle, and then grind with Diddy Kong for a while because he's the weakest member on my team. While grinding, I got Taunt and D.K. learned Seismic Toss. Now I can handle those Zubats better.
After grinding, I beat all of the Trainers on Cycling Road, get the Exp. Share from one of Rowan's assisntants, level up Toad twice, and get the Vs. Seeker from Dawn. Then I go all the way back to Floaroma to check on my Honey Tree, and guess what I find? A Cascoon! I do the regular catching method, and ta-da! Caught.
I keep forgetting to nickname these guys! I need a name, though. (if you want to help, it would be appreciated) Anyway, I go up by Eterna Forest and go the other way with Cut and get Sleep Talk. Nice, I guess. So that's it for now. Our MVPs are:
Mario and Goomba
They beat the demon skunk and his/her master. I was nervous about them. Thanks guys!
I start this session by going onto Route 206 to catch a Pokemon. That Pokemon is...Ponyta! Cool. Better than a Geodude. Caught it on my first try.
I named it Fireball for lack of a better name...and because an enemy in the Mario series is a fireball. I grind with Diddy Kong a bit, and a skip over Wayward Cave because I'd rather know where I'm going. However, I do go inside to catch a Pokemon, and I end up finding a Bronzor.
Better than finding a Geodude. I bring in Luigi and Stun Spore it, and catch it with a Dusk Ball.
I name it Kamek, after one of the enemies in the game. I go back to Oreburgh to heal, and then continue on to Route 207, and something bad happens. A Ponyta gets a critical hit on my Luigi with Ember, and just like that, Luigi is the first Pokemon to die.
Saddened, I return to the Oreburgh Pokemon Center and grab Kamek and grind with him a bit. I continue and enter Mount Coronet and find a Zubat. Darn. Then I see Cyrus, he blabs, and then I exit to Route 208, where I find a Bidoof. Grr. And then, while training Waluigi:
Yay! It finally evolved. Now I have even better of a chance against Maylene. I fight the rest of the Trainers and finally enter Hearthome, where a Buneary runs into me and a girl named Kiera thanks me and tells me to come to the Contest Hall. Yeah, whatever. That's enough for today. Our MVP is:
I still can't get over the fact that he died. He was so great for the team.
Oh well. Stay tuned!
So I start this session of the Nuzlocke by exploring Hearthome to the fullest and doing a bunch of stuff you guys probably aren't too interested in, except for a rival battle(which was a real pushover). I grind a bunch with Kamek and Waluigi on Route 208 because of the Trainer with the Roselia, which is good for Waluigi. I level up Kamek to Level 20 and Waluigi to Level 24. Then I get the Happiny Egg from the Hiker and bike around Hearthome until Happiny hatches.
I name it Peach because of its peachy personality. I then go to Route 209, and catch a Staravia for my Pokemon.
I keep forgetting to name people, but once I return to Eterna I promise to name my Cascoon and Staravia. I fight everyone, get the Good Rod and put in the Odd Keystone. Not sure if the rules state I can get Spiritomb, but I'll pass on it for now. I finish up in Solaceon Town and decide I've done enough. Our MVP is:
After Luigi died, I wasn't sure I could replace him. However, Kamek is proving to be a great addition to the team. Stay tuned!
So this session is pretty long, so I'll try to summarize this.
I start by exploring the ruins east of Solaceon, and I catch an Unown D there.
I name it Daisy because Daisy starts with a D.
Anyway, I put Fireball and Koopa in the daycare, and then I go to Route 210 and catch a Kricketune there.
I forgot to name it, so when I go to Eterna I'll nickname it. I beat all the Trainers on the Route and in the Cafe, so I head quickly to Route 215 to catch something, but all I get is a Ponyta.
I decide to go back to Hearthome and head to Pastoria, and on the way, guess who evolves while I'm grinding?
Yay! I finally have a Graveler. I'll trade it when I get the chance, but for now it's a Graveler. It also learns Rock Blast on the way. On Route 211 I catch a Goldeen with a Super Rod.
I forget to nickname a Pokemon again, so I promise when I get Fly, I'll name each and every one of them. I enter the Trophy Garden and catch a Staravia.
I forget to nickname it(yeah, where have I heard that one before), so yeah. Then something purely awful happens. Level 19 Kricketunes know Bide, just so you know. I thought I could kill it with Kamek, but it wouldn't do enough with one Extrasensory, so after Kricketune is charged up for Bide, I know what I must do.
I sacrifice Toad.
Kamek is too valuable to let go of, so I switch into Toad. It had about half HP left, and I watched its HP go right down the drain.
That's the second Pokemon gone, so I must fill in its slot. I go to Route 212 and catch a Wooper, so I replace Toad for Wooper.
Naming one of my Pokemon Yoshi is a touchy subject. I usually save it for someone really special. Yet I could feel something from Wooper that let me know it was the one. I name it Yoshi.
Then, while I'm training on Route 212, two evolutions happen! You can guess the first one:
Yay! I will be sure to train this guy a lot, since he is slowly becoming more and more valuable. And then:
YEAAAHHHH! Waluigi evolving made me so happy. I'll be sure to be careful with it. It also learned Air Cutter. I fly through Route 212, and finally enter Pastoria. That's it for now. Our MVP, if you can guess:
you were like a brother to meeeee,
you were by my side,
you were loyal to me,
and nothing put youuu dowwwwnnn,
I guess it's okay. Yoshi makes a nice fit for my team, and I'll be careful with Yoshi in Toad's memory. See ya!
