Nuzlocke runs will make you hate Gym Leaders (My Nuzlocke Topic)

#1XxMahnaMahnaxXPosted 7/24/2014 4:07:02 PM
I'm going to record the progress of my recent Nuzlocke playthrough itt. Feel free to keep track of your own play throughs, Nuzlocke or otherwise, here if you want! The more the merrier.

Recently I went up against Cliff? (For the longest time I was calling him Clay) the Rock Gym Leader. I got over eager and lost my Quilladin, Roi de Vert, and my Sandile, Terra. I was so hopeful for that Sandile, too. it had Intimidate and everything.

After that I started rushing through the next couple of routes trying to get to where I could catch more pokemon. I got over eager again and tried to leave Geosenge. Big mistake. Korrina murdered my team. Power-Up Punch and Swords Dance is total shenanigans. I lost my entire stable of usable pokemon aside from two in this encounter. Not even a real Gym Battle!

Deaths so far:
---------------
Terra - Sandile (22)
Roi de Vert - Quilladin (26)
Noire - Absol (27)
Azure - Pidgeotto (27)
Hellfyre - Charmeleon (27)
Jitterbug - Volbeat (21)
Annie - Cubone (17)
Snubbull (20)
Didn't even have time to give it a good nickname :(

Team so far:
----------------
Shinobu Vert - Gloom (28)
Sakura - Floette (28)
Raven - Staravia (22)
Chomper - Tyrunt (20)
Jenna - Gulpin (5)
Orwell - Burmy (17)

The only survivors from my initial team are Gloom and Floette who were in the box when the Lucario Massacre happened. I almost wish Shinobu had been there, maybe he could have stopped it with Sleep Powder and Stun Spore, but I'm glad he wasn't so he's not dead.

I'm going to do some backtracking to go back and talk to everyone and do any battles I might have snuck by. I'm not going to go anywhere unprepared again. No more deaths.

Ouch >_<
I think Johtos are the worst.
Falkner spams roost
Bugsy has scyther with technician quick attack
We all know about Whitney and her miltank
Mortys Gengar uses hypnosis + dream eater
Chuck has double team ( I think) and hypnosis with focus punch
Jasmine is one of the least annoying, but Steelix can be a pain without SE moves
Pryce has hail stall
Clair has dragons with high power
All are a pain in one way or another.
Then, if you go through all the way to Red, you have all the Kanto leadets, not to mention Red himself

Taichi, my Tyrunt, died in a battle against the Brains and Brawn team outside Reflection Cave. Gloom had a pretty close encounter, too. I'm still not being careful enough.

Deaths
---------------
Terra - Sandile (22)
Roi de Vert - Quilladin (26)
Noire - Absol (27)
Azure - Pidgeotto (27)
Hellfyre - Charmeleon (27)
Jitterbug - Volbeat (21)
Annie - Cubone (17)
Snubbull (20)
Taichi - Tyrunt (22)

In lighter news my Burmy evolved into Mothim. I've never had one of those. Until now I'd completely written off Orwell the Burmy. I used him against the Brains and Brawn team and he evolved after the battle.

Seriously, the Wobbuffets in Reflection Cave are scary. Sakura, Floette, had a close encounter there with one, but she came out all right. I did however have to sacrifice Mary Jane the Gulpin in an encounter with a Battle Girl (Hedvig I believe) so that on one else died. Then in a battle against a Tourist Couple my Staravia, Raven, was killed by a Vespiquen's Power Gem. I thought that he'd be able to take a second one and kill Vespiquen. I was wrong.

Deaths:
-------------
Terra - Sandile (22)
Roi de Vert - Quilladin (26)
Noire - Absol (27)
Azure - Pidgeotto (27)
Hellfyre - Charmeleon (27)
Jitterbug - Volbeat (21)
Annie - Cubone (17)
Snubbull (20)
Taichi - Tyrunt (22)
Mary Jane - Gulpin (23)
Raven - Staravia - (29)
He was gonna be the next Azure, my badass bird buddy.

I beat the Shalour Gym. I took on Korrina's first two Pokemon with mostly no problem. (Hooray for Eviolite). But her Hawlucha kind of scare me a bit. It started Honing its Claws and doing Flying Presses. Floette with Eviolite made all our Wishes come true and in the end we won. My Rival battle with Serena got kind of scary because the only thing I had to counter Braxien was an underleveled Slowbro, Roi de Bleu. Fire Spin residual damage would have killed Bleu if he hadn't got a Critical on Water Gun. The Successor battle was anti-climactic because you have to use Lucario. I just left it standing at the top of the tower when it asks to join you. I hate those things. I will never forgive the Lucario Massacre or those who perpetrated it.

I'm leaving Shalour now

Team:
------------
Shinobu Vert - Gloom (37)
Sakura - Floette (36)
Mothra - Mothim (29)
Roi de Bleu - Slowbro (27)
Flintstone - Boldore (26)
Breezey - Beedrill (21)

No reserves.

Oh man, the Rival Battle in Coumarine. That damn Braxien I swear. Slowbro did some damage with Surf but had to switch out before it could finish Braxien because of Fire Spin. Of course she used Psybeam the turn I use disable. Boldore switched in and took two fire spins before it could get off a Rock Tomb and end the fight. Mothim's been seeing some play lately, it took on Serena's Meowstic and won.
