...Even better, then! I keep forgetting Ghosts are immune to being trapped now. Alright, then! Steak Knife is gonna help me cut right through this cave! First, though, I ninja'd my way around every single Trainer on Route 11, and I'd like to get through them first, after I help Sandy and Steak Knife catch up with the others.

EDIT: So, accidentally wound up battling a Battle Girl whose Mienfoo is freaking level 28. I'm thinking we may be just a little underleveled here...

EDIT II: Geez... Accidentally skated into that Psychic's line of sight. His Solosis just spammed Charm as much as Steak Knife spammed Swords Dance, and that Sigilyph could have killed so many things... I'm lucky we made it through that with no fatalities. Very lucky.

EDIT III: And after that harrowing double battle against Machoke and Mr. Mime, I think we're as ready as we'll ever be to tackle Reflection Cave.

EDIT IV: ...Oh, this could be bad. This Battle Girl's Throh knows Bulldoze, so Steak Knife isn't gonna be a lot of help...

EDIT V: ...Aroma is a lifesaver. Switched her in, hit Throh with three Charms, healed her and Steak Knife back up, brought Steak Knife back out, now Bulldoze did next to nothing. Got in a few Swords Dances, and Aerial Aced the crap out of Throh and Hawlucha. Oh, and Walnut had gotten in on this as well, getting him to level 26, allowing me to replace Vine Whip with Needle Arm, a much-needed and much-appreciated upgrade.

EDIT VI: Made it! I'm in Shalour City!

EDIT VII: Took a quick detour to Route 12, at which point Plunder the Chatot joined the team. I may switch something out for her just for Shalour Gym. Possibly. Also got an Eviolite in Shalour, gave that to Steak Knife. You know what? I'll switch Sandy for Plunder for the time being.

EDIT VIII: Well... nothing left to do but take on Shalour Gym. I mean, between Plunder and Steak Knife, I think I have reason to be confident about this one, not to mention Aroma's resistance to Fighting. This'll be interesting.

EDIT IX: ...Somebody hold me. This Hariyama just got off a Belly Drum as I was switching in Aroma to use Charm. Something's gonna die here, isn't it?

EDIT X: ...Something just died here. RIP Aroma the Illumise... Stupid Smelling Salts... I should've switched...

EDIT XI: Oh, man... I managed to beat the Hariyama without further fatalites, but... Aroma... She was so helpful. I needed hordes to grind up the team against? She had Sweet Scent. Something was too powerful to handle? She was there with Charm and Struggle Bug. Hell, even her Wish move came in handy once or twice! This... this one hurts, guys. I gotta... I don't know. I think I might get Harpoon back on the team, train him up some before I take on Korrina.

XII: Did a little backtracking to the Battle Chateau, trying to train up Harpoon there, but I'll be taking a break for a little while.

And we're back! Still gonna train up Harpoon in the Battle Chateau, get him caught up to the others before I take on Korrina.

EDIT: Have moved on to Route 10 for training, as I've beaten everyone the Battle Chateau sees fit to throw my way at the moment. Harpoon's coming along nicely.

EDIT II: And now Route 11.

EDIT III: OK... Let's do this.

EDIT IV: And victory! All I needed was Harpoon and Steak Knife! And now, I got me a Mega Ring and a Lucarionite to get!

EDIT V: Alright, Aaron now holds a Lucarionite, and can Mega Evolve! Onward to Coumarine City... after I take a break!

I want to find the person who said "Belly Drum Hariyama in the third gym, yeah, totally kosher!" and punch them in the mouth. I've never had an issue there, but seriously, WHY!?

Also want to find the person who stuck Wild Hariyama and Staravia on Route 11 and kick their sternum in (Wild Hariyama just after Gym 2 is crap, and Staravia are just resilient enough to get in those low health endeavors and then use Quick Attack).

And those wild Hariyama are underleveled, on top of that. I know this off the top of my head, speaking as someone who's evolved a Makuhita in Fizzy Bubbles. Fortunately, as I just learned, they're not too hard to deal with now. Even so, they could still have been Makuhita or something. And yeah, that one Belly Drum Hariyama in Shalour Gym... Poor Aroma...

Heather, can your fist travel through time?

Hariyama in gen 3 learned Belly Drum at level 40, but in gen 4 onwards that shifted to TWENTY SEVEN. In ORAS it's 26!

At that level you've got something that can feasibly absorb a couple of hits with that massive HP and enough power in its attacks to kill things. Bloody ridiculous.

Thanks to my terrible track record with Nuzlockes, I've decided to accept gift Pokemon, not applying to trades, of course. As a result, got myself a gift Magikarp, who isn't going to be useful any time soon, especially with the lineup of Gyms ahead, but I think will be a good long term investment. Caught a Spearow and Geodude, the latter of which is proving to be an integral part of my team as we go through Mt. Moon. Hoping that, if this Spearow survives to be a Fearow, it'll show off what it's got, since I remember Fury Attack being ungodly in Gen I. Donny's a friggin boss. Hopefully this lack of death I've had so far will continue through the game.

The Team:
Amarillo the Pikachu (Level 16)
Donny the Butterfree (Level 16)
PIDGEY the Pidgey (Level 14)
Mega Man the Geodude (Level 13)
Lance the Spearow (Level 12)
Phish the Magikarp (Level 11)

RIP:
Kenny the Mankey (Level 3)

Got beaten by my rival right before Victory Road. RIP my Yellow run. I may post final stats later.

I'm now doing a Black Nuzlocke. Accepting all gift Pokemon, not doing any trades, will get any Legendary Pokemon I can get. I've chosen Oshawott, named Jim.

Get that Patrat up to Watchog stage. You want to be able to use it to Detect out of boosted Retaliate.

OK, the X Nuzlocke... kinda fizzled out. I kinda restarted X without realizing I still had that Nuzlocke going on it, after having taken a break from it. Yeah, I know, stupid move on my part, but what's done is done.

On to more current business, though- a Crystal Nuzlocke! Currently already in Goldenrod City, just gonna try and train up the team some before taking on... *shudders* Whitney. Fortunately, one of my team members is a female Geodude, which I hear is actually a decent answer to the Miltank of Death, but even so, I don't look forward to what havoc Clefairy can wreak with Metronome... But yes, anyway- rules.

1: Standard Nuzlocke rules. NPC gift Pokémon and static encounters are not exempt from the first encounter rule.
2: Shiny Clause- Shinies are catchable and usable regardless of whether they're the first encounter or not.
3: Dupes Clause- I am allowed to not count a first encounter as such if it is a species I've already obtained, or in the same evolution line, if I so choose.
4: Bug-Catching Contest Clause- I am allowed to, one time only, play the Bug-Catching Contest and use what I win, and count it as separate from my National Park first encounter. If the need arises to evolve a Sunkern or Gloom (into Bellossom), I am allowed to play the Bug-Catching Contest as needed to acquire a Sun Stone, but I can only keep the Bug-type I catch on my first time in the Contest. The first encounter rule does not apply in the Bug-Catching Contest.
5: NPC Egg Clause- Regardless of where they hatch, the Togepi Egg counts as my Violet City first encounter, and the Odd Egg counts as my Goldenrod City first encounter. However, I did hatch both of them in their respective cities, so yeah.
6: Roamer Clause- Roaming legendaries do not count as my first encounter. Unless I find one as my first encounter on a route and actually manage to catch it in that encounter. It could happen. I once threw a Great Ball at Raikou just for the lulz. That Great Ball caught the Raikou.
7: Uncatchable Clause- The first encounter rule does not come into effect until I actually acquire Poké Balls, so as to not screw me out of encounters for Routes 29 and 30. Similarly, the first encounter rule is put on hold in the event that I run out of Poké Balls, until such time as I acquire more Poké Balls.

Hermes the Hoothoot (killed by a Camper's Marill's Rollout on Route 35. And my own stupidity- I didn't pay attention when the first Rollout hit, thought it was Tackle or something, I could have easily switched and avoided this...)




Missed
Zubat (Dark Cave- Brooke got a critical hit with Bubble.)
Onix (Union Cave- Was running out of Poké Balls, decided to cut my losses and flee.)
Ditto (Route 34- kept breaking out of every ball I threw its way until it Struggled itself to death. Seriously! I should've had it Transform into Hermes- better catch rate than Slowpoke, but even so, I don't remember having that much trouble catching Dudley! Then again, I did have Brooke's Hypnosis back then...)

Well, that could've been disastrous. I was using Skillet to try to get something in the Bug-Catching Contest. He wound up getting poisoned by a Weedle, and then a Pinsir very nearly killed him. I could've used a Park Ball, but if it failed, Skillet would have died. Not worth it, so I fled, ended the contest, and healed up Skillet (remember, there's no way to use items on Pokémon during the contest). By my own rules, I can try again on Tuesday, I can keep trying for a Bug-Catching Contest catch until I actually get one, so no big loss there. Trained stuff up, and... well, we're about to tackle Whitney. Wish me luck.

EDIT: AAAAH! RIP Pebbles the Geodude... Friggin' Rollout crit... I'm so freaking screwed.

EDIT II: Freaking damn it... RIP Skillet the Quilava. The only hope I could see was, he outspeeds, gets off a Smokescreen, then Rollout misses. He... did not outspeed.

EDIT III: Oh my Arceus... I can't believe we got through that... Pisces was able to come in, resist Rollout, get in some Mud-Slaps, and used Ice Punch to make hell literally freeze over, and just... just... were it not for the poisonous film on her body, I would hug that Wooper of mine right now. But geez... I can't believe we lost Pebbles and Skillet! I mean, OK, considering the opponent, I kinda can believe it, but... but still! Oh, man... But yeah, gonna just try and rebuild the team here. I took out Glyph and Chuck, gonna give them some training.

EDIT IV: ...Well, if that's not one of the most humiliating ways to go in a Nuzlocke, it's gotta be close to it. RIP Chuck the Tyrogue. Taken out by a critical hit Mega Drain... from a Sunkern. Glyph's coming along pretty well, though. Its Hidden Power type seems to be Flying. Took Lulla out of the PC, just gonna see how well she does.

EDIT V: Made it to Ecruteak City, and en route, Stratos the Pidgey was caught. But then, as I ventured out west to continue training... RIP Pisces the Wooper. KO'd by a Sailor's own Wooper- Critical hit from Slam. Farewell, Pisces- you shall be missed. For now, I've withdrawn Migraine from the PC. I'm gonna take this opportunity to take a small break from this for now.

Skillet the Quilava (killed by the Miltank of Death's infamous Rollout. I figured he'd outspeed and get off a Smokescreen. I was dead wrong.)

I should've had it Transform into Hermes- better catch rate than Slowpoke, but even so, I don't remember having that much trouble catching Dudley! Then again, I did have Brooke's Hypnosis back then...)

Alright, getting back into this. Just gonna be grinding up the team somewhat, since they are, as a whole, rather underleveled. Would've had the chance to add a Magnemite to the team, but it fled.

EDIT: ...We were doing so well, too. RIP Lulla the Drowzee. >_< Those Stantler are a menace!

EDIT II: Instead of withdrawing something from the PC, I decided to get my Burned Tower catch. James the Koffing has joined the team!

EDIT III: Gonna call it a night here.

And we're back! Just gonna start things off by trying to get my Bug-Catching Contest catch today.

EDIT: Well, that was far less disastrous than the previous attempt, even if I only got third place from it. Bronze the Pinsir has been sent to the PC! And now, the grinding continues.

EDIT II: Taking on the Kimono Girls right now. Glyph was a lifesaver against that Espeon!

EDIT III: Cheddar evolved into Raticate!

EDIT IV: Fought my way over to Olivine City. Migraine knows Surf now. Unfortunately, on Route 39, we had a repeat of Route 38. Well, OK, not quite- this time, the Magnemite fled on the second turn.

EDIT V: OK, time to take on my rival in Burned Tower and unleash the legendary gerbils. Let's do it!

EDIT VI: Well, that worked out nicely. Beat my rival, no fatalities, and Arachne evolved into Ariados afterwards! The gerbils are loose, so it's time to exit and start preparing for the Gym.

EDIT VII: Vlad evolved into Golbat!

EDIT VIII: Whoops. Looks like no Mt. Mortar catch for me. Of all the times for Glyph to score a crit...

EDIT 9: And just before arriving in Mahogany Town, Rocket the Ekans was sent to the PC! It's male- believe me, if it was female, would've named it Jessie.

EDIT 10: ...RIP Glyph the Unown E. That Picnicker with the Clefairy on Route 43 got ALL the freaking hax. Two turns of Double Slap both got five hits, and the second use had three separate crits. It's like the game just up and decided "OK, Glyph, you die now. Suck it." Rest in peace, Glyph. That E stood for "Excellent". Oh, and missed out on a first encounter yet again- I didn't think Cheddar's Quick Attack would OHKO that Sentret. In my defense, Glyph had only just died, I was a little preoccupied with that.

EDIT 11: Taking a bit of a break.

EDIT 12: OK, just gotta train up Bronze a little bit, catch him up with the rest of the team.

EDIT 13: And now for Ecruteak Gym. Let's see if I stand a ghost of a chance.

EDIT 14: All the Sages and Mediums have been dealt with. Now only Morty remains...

EDIT 15: Fog Badge get! And not a single fatality, either! Migraine's Confusion, Arachne's Dig, both were highly effective, but Vlad was the star, going up against Golbat. I made a very wise decision to equip Vlad with the Mint Berry I picked earlier. More to the point, though, now I can Surf. So... time for some backtracking!

EDIT 16: Well, I'm about to backtrack through Dark Cave, but I don't want to teach Flash and Rock Smash to anything on my current te- hmm. Oh, Togepi...

EDIT 15: And after retrieving a Moon Stone from Tohjo Falls, Rapids the Seaking was sent to the PC. And back on Route 27, so was Kraken the Tentacruel.

EDIT 16: I think it's time I took on the Rocket Hideout. But first, a little visit to the Lake of Rage.

EDIT 17: Oh, no! RIP Migraine the Psyduck! The Red Gyarados landed a brutal Thrash. After thawing out after Arceus only knows how many turns. And spending each one of those turns breaking out of thrown Ultra Balls and Great Balls. Seriously.

EDIT 18: AAAAAAAAAAAAAGH! NOOOOOOOOOO!!! RIP James the Koffing! D: Thrash OHKO'd- it was a crit.

EDIT 19: I don't know what possessed me to keep on trying to catch that murderer, but I kept trying anyway. Only stopped when it KO'd itself with confusion damage. I withdrew Kraken from the PC, and, leaving space for whatever the hideout has in store for me, I'm heading in.

EDIT 20: And James's death will be avenged by Jessie the Koffing, who now joins the team in my first instance of waiving my right to invoking dupes clause!

EDIT 21: Just gonna get in some extra grinding, get Jessie and Kraken on par with the rest of the team.

EDIT 22: We now return you to your regularly scheduled Team Rocket stomping, already in progress.

EDIT 23: The entirety of the trap floor has now been disarmed.

EDIT 24: And Vlad has evolved into Crobat!

EDIT 25: NO! NO!!! NO, NO, NO, NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! D: RIP Jessie the Koffing... Stupid other Koffing used stupid Self-Destruct and scored a stupid, stupid, STUPID critical hit! Stupid Scientist Ross- wait. Scientist Ross. Intentional Friends reference?

EDIT 26: The best that can be said for this is that I made it through the rest of the hideout without any further fatalities. Not even from the Electrode. Bronze tanked two Self-Destructs like a champ. And to think he only got me third place in the Bug-Catching Contest! But anyway, that's probably where I'm calling it a night.

And we're back! Heading across the sea to Cianwood right now.

EDIT: Gotta love dupes clause. Rain the Mantine has joined the team... until I got back to Olivine and boxed her.

EDIT 2: In addition to giving up on roman numerals altogether, Shuckie the Shuckle has joined the team! This should prove interesting.

EDIT 3: Ah, the Berry Shuckie was holding became Berry Juice! Now... the question is, does anyone know how long Shuckie has to hold the Berry Juice before it becomes a Rare Candy?

EDIT 4: Well, I've derped. Tried to run from a wild Mantine. I had Shuckie out front. As you can guess, no bueno. Bubble Beam didn't kill, thankfully, but Shuckie wasted his Berry Juice that I was trying to turn into a Rare Candy. Gotta get another Berry, start the process anew.

EDIT 5: And Shuckie's got a brand new Berry!

EDIT 6: Figured I might as well deliver the Secret Potion while I was backtracking for the Berry. But I'm back in Cianwood- I still got Eusine to deal with, followed by the Cianwood Gym.

EDIT 7: Well, that was easy. Now on to Cianwood Gym!

EDIT 8: WHOMG since when does that Machoke know Rock Slide?! No fatalities there, but it was a bit of a close call for Bronze!

EDIT 9: Of course Vlad finally learns Wing Attack, juuuuust before I'm gonna be overwriting it with Fly. As you can guess, just gotta beat Chuck.

EDIT 10: Nope, scratch that, still had another Black Belt. Don't know how I missed that. OK, now it's just Chuck left.

EDIT 11: And, victory! Kraken was a huge help here with his resistance to Dynamic Punch. Took more than a few Super Potions, but ultimately it all went off without a hitch.

EDIT 12: OK, minor heart attack just there- now that Vlad's got Fly, I'm backtracking a bit, stockpiling a few Berries here and there for Shuckie to turn into Rare Candies. Flew to Cherrygrove, went out to Route 29- boom, Raikou. Threw a Fast Ball for the lulz, no luck.

EDIT 13: Oh, yeah- now I'm gonna take on Mahogany Gym.

EDIT 14: Well, just Pryce remains now.

EDIT 15: ...That didn't take long. Arachne made short work of Seel and Dewgong with Sludge Bomb (by the way, I taught her Sludge Bomb), leaving Kraken free to handle Piloswine. Now for Jasmine- we are just plowing through the Gym Leaders today!

EDIT 16: Arachne OHKO'd the first Magnemite with Dig, dealt damage to Steelix with Dig, took an almost-fatal Iron Tail, hastily switched to Kraken, KO'd with Surf, then brought Arachne back out to OHKO the second Magnemite with Dig. I'd say no sweat, but that Iron Tail was a pretty close call. Elm just called about the radio broadcasts, which would be my cue to head on out to Goldenrod, but... I kinda want to go to Blackthorn first, take on the Trainers out that way before I tackle the Rockets.

EDIT 16 3/4: Oh, yeah- Shuckie's Berry turned into Berry Juice! Let's see how long it takes for the Rare Candy to happen.

EDIT 17: And with that, Flora the Bellsprout has been sent to the PC!

EDIT 18: ...Well, no Ice Path encounter for me. Stupid Delibird being able to flee...

EDIT 19: Made it to Blackthorn, and even got a new catch- Blank the Gligar was sent to the PC! Named her Blank because that's what I was drawing when trying to think of a nickname for her. I'm gonna take a break.
