Nuzlocke Adventure 37: Water, Water Everywhere

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 28, 2015, 10:24 PM


THE RULES: 

1—All pokemon must be nicknamed.

2—I must attempt to catch the first pokemon I see in any route or area. I may catch no others in that area.

3—If a pokemon faints, it is considered “dead” and may no longer be used. I will release them from the next PC.

4—Legendaries cannot be caught or used.

5—The Pokewalker cannot be used.

6—If the first encounter is a duplicate of a pokemon I already have, I may ignore it and re-try for a new one. After three re-tries, however, I must catch the fourth one even if it is a dupe.

7—Gift pokemon, such as Bill’s Eevee or the Tyrogue from the Karate King, can be accepted and used and do not count under the “first encounter” rule. Forced encounters, such as Sudowoodo and the Red Gyarados, however, do count under the “first encounter” rule.

8—In-game trades are acceptable, but out-of-game trades, even to make pokemon such as Haunter or Graveler evolve, are not.

9—The Daycare Center cannot be used to breed, but it can be used to level up pokemon.

10—If all pokemon in my party faint, or if I am in a situation where I need to use a move like Cut or Surf to progress but have no pokemon that can use these moves and cannot obtain one without breaking the rules, I lose and my adventure ends.

Cerulean City

We’re here, and ready to beat Misty to boot! I’ve boxed Lizzie and brought Sofia back into the party. But first, let's head to the left.

 

Route 4

Not much to do here, but there is a grassy patch. I already have every pokemon offered here, but it is a Thursday. Let’s try Sinnoh Sounds on the radio station! Maybe I’ll get a Buizel!

 

…or a Bidoof. Okay. I name him Rupert. Hasty nature, “capable of taking hits.” Let’s go north from Cerulean.

 

Route 24

Fought everyone here already, remember? Also caught a pokemon.

 

Route 25

Same deal. Let’s head to the end of the route. Misty’s there! I know you’re in the middle of something (looks like a date) but BATTLE ME NOW!! This is more important!

 

Cerulean City

Time to take me on a Gym! What’s the gym guy say here?

 

“Yo! Legend in the making! Since Misty was away, I went out for some fun, too. He-he-he.”

 

…O_o You know, that last added “he-he-he” really makes the whole thing sound suspect. Just sayin’.

 

Does Randall completely rip through all of the opposition? Of course he does. Now let’s do the same to the head honcho.

 

BOSS: Gym Leader Misty

You’d think I’d get sick of this music after hearing it a million times. WRONG

 

Misty leads with Golduck, lv. 49. Go, Randall lv. 56! Golduck uses Disable on its first turn but outspeeds me and accomplishes nothing. Randall OHKOs with Thunderbolt and grows to lv. 57. Misty’ s sending out Quagsire lv. 49 now.  I don’t have anything with a Grass-type move, so I’ll have to hope that Vivian, lv. 56, is strong enough for the job!

 

Vivian uses Dragon Claw first turn to deal over half of Quagsire’s HP in damage. Quagsire uses Amnesia in response. Quagsire goes down and Vivian also grows to lv. 57.

 

Misty’s now sending in Lapras lv. 52. Let’s return to Randall. Thunderbolt! It hits and OHKOs. Hoorah! Misty’s final pokemon is a lv. 54 Starmie. Let’s keep in Randall.  Thunderbolt again! Starmie gets off a Water Pulse, but Randall endures it handily and drops yet another OHKO. The Cascade Badge is mine, as is the Water Pulse TM.

 

And that’s it! Next time, we’ll hopefully get yet another Kanto Gym badge. Stay tuned!


(Also, talking with Randall in the Gym made him jab left and right and prompted the text, “Why is it doing warm-up exercises.” Wut.)

Current Teammates: Kenya (Fearow), Noelle (Gyarados), Randall (Magneton), Jacob (Nidoking), Vivian (Dragonite), Sofia (Starmie)

Lavender Town

I’ve already done everything there is to do here, but let’s head on over to the Center to heal and swap Jacob back into the party. Now then, let’s go tackle the route just south of here!

 

Route 11

No pokemon here, as this is where I caught Vladimir. However, it’s time to snag me some exp off of trainers!

 

Right off the bat we get a Grass Knot TM. Nice! Can I teach it to anyone?

 

…only Sofia, and it’d be a worse choice than Thunder. Let’s leave it off.

 

Our first battle is against a Psychic, which is a bit worrisome as I have Jacob leading. However, I get through it with no problems. Nearby I pick up a Grn Apricorn and destroy a Youngster’s hopes and dreams.

 

Another Psychic can “see everything about me” but somehow can’t see that his one pokemon that is twelve levels lower than my weakest party member won’t be able to claim him victory.

 

…and that’s it. Much fewer trainers here than on Silence Bridge. Back to Lavender Town!

 

Lavender Town

There are still places I haven’t tackled to the north and west. Let’s go west first.

 

Route 8

I already caught a pokemon here (Blair the Vulpix) but there’s still plenty of trainers to fight. Tally-ho!

 

I beat up miscellaneous trainers, including a “nerd” who doesn’t know how magnet trains work (hint: it’s in the name) and a bunch of stupid Bikers—yikes, one of them drops an Explosion on Jacob and almost kills him! D: We barely manage to stay alive…

 

Still, with that little scare out of the way, we’re done here. Let’s return to Lavender Town again and head north.

 

Route 10

A few trainers to fight here (though we do have one hilarious moment when a trainer calls me to complain that a Grimer took one look at his face and ran off… a Grimer? Really? XD ) and we head into the cavern…

 

Rock Tunnel

We light things up with Randall’s Flash and then turn on the Pokemon Music Channel. It’s Hoenn Music, so maybe I can catch something other than the same dopey Geodudes and Onixes. B)

 

And hey, it works! I get a Makuhita! I catch him handily and name him Byron. Serious nature, “scatters things often.”

 

There aren’t any trainers in here, though I do pick up some TMs and such. The maze-like layout is annoying, as are all the dead ends. x__X There’s also lots of Rock Climb obstacles I can’t pass yet.

 

Route 10

Yep, back here once more! Time to head out to Cerulean again, fighting trainers along the way! And…

 

Route 9

That was quick. :3

 

Lotsa trainers here, but they mostly use Rock and Grass pokemon, so Noelle and Kenya clean house. (I’ve swapped Sofia out of the party for Lizzie because I need Cut.)

 

Huh? They got rid of the guy who sings “She’ll be comin’ round Mt. Silver when she comes!” Maybe because of… innuendo? Ho ho ho ho ho—


So yeah, anyway, I already got my catch for the area (a Goldeen, remember?) and Cerulean is right around the corner. Next time, we’ll take on Misty.  Stay tuned!


Current Teammates: Kenya (Fearow), Noelle (Gyarados), Randall (Magneton), Jacob (Nidoking), Vivian (Dragonite), Lizzie (Beedrill)

Route 15

We’re here just east of Fuchsia City. It’s time to take the long walk to Lavender Town! I’ve swapped Lizzie into my party in lieu of Jacob, as if I remember correctly this is a good place to come packing Cut.

 

Right off the bat, we have a new encounter! It’s a Nidorino? I already have Jacob, but let’s catch it anyway. Paralysis from Randall and a Moon Ball get the job done lickety-split.

 

Success! Virgil has an Impish nature and “likes to relax.”

 

A few School Kids actually have some decent pokemon (particularly one with an Alakazam… bad flashbacks to Sabrina ahoy) but our team is just too strong for them. Strangely, the children here appear to equal the levels of Janine, the leader we just fought. Janine! I know you’re new and all, but c’mon!

 

“We’re on a school trip to Lavender Radio Tower for social studies,” says one kid. You mean that place that used to be hallowed ground and was grossly turned into a glorified antenna? >:c

 

“If Pokemon were a subject at school, I’d be the best!” says another. You and me both, kid. :b

 

Ew! Some lady’s Spinda has a spot pattern that seriously makes it look like it has a mouth rash or something. Yuck!

 

Route 14

Right off the bat there’s a gauntlet of even more School Kids, plus a Teacher and a Bird Keeper. Once we power through them we get our encounter for the area… another Nidorino?!

 

Well, let’s catch him. “Lonely, capable of taking hits.” His name is Bubs.

 

And whuzzuHUH? Suicune is here? Eusine comes along and gives us a hint to Suicune’s location not because he wants to, but because he thinks Suicune will like him if he does. Ooooooooooooookay then.

 

Route 13

Wow, so many routes, and all back to back! This is that huge, mazey fence area, remember? I’m coming up close to Silence Bridge.

 

A million and a half trainers have been giving us their phone numbers these last few areas, which is nice, but if I’m going to farm exp off of someone I can call, I’d prefer it if they didn’t take so long to get to!

 

“Bow down before my regal pokemon!” says a guy whose team contains two lv. 29 pokemon and a lv. 64 Magikarp. I don’t… I don’t get your team selection, man.

 

None of these trainers are that difficult, but they’re all doing a number on my PP. And I think I’m only halfway done… X_X

 

Near the end of the route, we finally find our grassy patch. Ah, it’s a Hoppip! We catch her with no problems. I name her Clair; her nature is Timid and her details are “proud of its power.” After finally making it onto the bridge area itself…

 

Route 12

We’re finally here. Silence Bridge. For some reason, that name always conjures up powerful nostalgia for me, you know? Way back when I was playing the original Game Boy pokemon games and I learned that this place had a name beyond just “Route X” it just… I dunno, it really struck a chord with me. Pokemon X and Y did something similar with their little subtitles for all the miscellaneous routes.

 

After defeating a couple of Fishermen and snagging a Calcium from behind a tree, I finally get the Super Rod. Hooray! I could use it to fish up a pokemon, but there’s nothing noteworthy to fish for here, ironically enough. Instead, I’ll Surf and try for a Quagsire.

 

And hey, it works! Quagsire lv. 25! I’ll just toss a Net Ball and… done! Jordan has a Calm nature, details are “highly persistent.”

 

Further up are more trainers (with generally weaker levels than the School Kids earlier, for whatever reason) and a gate to Route 11 to the left. I’ll swing by there next time. Even more trainers get in our way, but we finally make it to Lavender Town.

 

Lavender Town

Whew, finally made it to a town! With that very long walk out of the way, next time we’ll be tackling more parts of Kanto that I didn’t visit. Stay tuned!

Current Teammates: Kenya (Fearow), Noelle (Gyarados), Randall (Magneton), Vivian (Dragonite), Sofia (Starmie), Lizzie (Beedrill)

Nuzlocke Adventure Interlude: State of the Team

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 17, 2015, 10:57 AM


Once again, we have four more badges under our belt, which means it’s time for another interlude. A lot has changed since we’ve started our adventure; heck, a lot has changed since our last interlude. We’ve changed our team’s makeup and become League Champions. Here’s the state of the team.

MAIN TEAM
These pokemon are Dee’s main team members. Powerful pokemon that are each over level fifty, they are not to be trifled with and most of them have seen their way through the Elite 4. Unless Dee needs a specific HM move used, you’ll rarely see anyone but them in the party.

KENYA
Species: Fearow, lv. 55
Nature: Hasty, “proud of its power.”
Met: “Borrowed” from the Goldenrod gatekeeper.
Current Moves: Fly, Return, Drill Peck, U-Turn

Kenya spent most of her early life delivering messages between the Goldenrod gatekeeper and his friend. Bored with this meager existence, she yearned for adventure and leapt at the chance to accompany Dee permanently on his quest.

Kenya is single-minded and focused on the task at hand, and always gives her all in battle. In her early days as part of the team this was somewhat off-putting, but her current teammates are all powerful battlers in their own right who respect and admire her steadfast nature. She is not a social creature, but gets along reasonably well with other members of the team, particularly Jacob, who is similarly professional in battle, and Noelle, as the two of them both came from undesirable backgrounds.

She holds Sofia in some disdain, however; though both of them value battle, Kenya prides herself on keeping her cool in a fight while it is easy to set Sofia off.

NOELLE
Species: Gyarados, lv. 52 (shiny)
Nature: Lonely, “often lost in thought.”
Met: Stopped from rampaging in the Lake of Rage
Current Moves: Waterfall, Dragon Dance, Ice Fang, Bite

The team leader, Noelle spent her early life as one of many interchangeable Magikarp in the Lake of Rage. When Team Rocket’s experiments forced her to evolve, the trauma sent her on a rampage until Dee caught and calmed her.

Noelle commands a healthy dose of respect from the other pokemon but is not a tyrant. She is willing to listen to her fellow teammates and rely on them in a pinch, giving particular credence to Jacob, who often offers an opposing viewpoint and is essentially her second-in-command. She was close friends with Laika and was devastated by her death at the hands of Sabrina’s Alakazam, but as she did with the deaths of Franklin and Felix, she keeps her grief private to project a strong face and unify the team.

Among the current party members, she is closest friends with Kenya and Vivian, and finds Sofia to be a bit grating.

RANDALL
Species: Magneton, lv. 53
Nature: Bashful, “often scatters things.”
Met: Encountered just north of Olivine City.
Current Moves: Thunderbolt, Flash Cannon, Thunder Wave, Flash

As an animated machine, Randall is genderless and, unlike Sofia, does not identify as any particular gender. He accepts the masculine pronoun for convenience’s sake. Randall is, in many ways, the stereotypical nerd: super brainy and extremely introverted. His computerized brain helps him analyze and process information much faster than Dee or any of the other pokemon, and when not battling he prefers to keep to himself, scanning various databases in order to increase his knowledge even further. He respects Noelle for her leadership and considers his data stores a valuable asset to the team.

As his Bashful nature would suggest, Randall is very easily embarrassed, and is often left stuttering and awkward after any teasing. This naturally led to conflict against the pranksters Trevor and Laika (when she was alive) as well as the gruff Jacob, who often speaks without thinking and occasionally insults when he does not mean to. He gets along surprisingly well with Sofia, who’s wild extroversion complements his own inward nature quite nicely.

JACOB
Species: Nidoking, lv. 54
Nature: Bashful, “mischievous.”
Met: Joined Dee in the Safari Zone.
Current Moves: Sludge Bomb, Avalanche, Stealth Rock, Earthquake

This gruff, brusque Nidoking makes no bones—he says what he feels and damn the consequences. This has earned him the ire of the sensitive Randall and the easily-offended Sofia, but has won the respect of Noelle. As team leader, the Gyarados finds his willingness to criticize and often take an opposing viewpoint refreshing and an aid to the decision-making process. The two of them are good friends and though Jacob may criticize Noelle or offer judgment, he will always follow her when it gets down to it. He is essentially the team’s second-in-command.

Fiercely loyal to the team, Jacob prides himself on his power and approaches battle with a no-nonsense touch, a mindset which led to him crushing several of Lance’s dragons and earning the respect of the like-minded Kenya. He still remembers his childhood home in the wilds and still prefers the solitude of the outdoors, finding himself uncomfortable in cities and around big crowds.

When he first entered the team, the knowledge that Aaron had rejected several of the female members’s advances piqued his interest. After planting a surprise victory smooch on him after beating Lance, the two of them entered into a relationship, with Aaron’s cool, cultured demeanor threatening to buff out some of Jacob’s gruffness. Aaron’s untimely death has devastated the Nidoking, however, and he has regrettably lost many of the polished touches he picked up from Aaron. He masks his sadness and channels it into fierce anger that makes him deadly on the battlefield.

VIVIAN
Species: Dragonite, lv. 56
Nature: Relaxed, “likes to fight.”
Met: A gift from the master of the Dragon clan.
Current Moves: Dragon Claw, Extremespeed, Fire Blast, Focus Blast

Among the many families of Dragon-type pokemon that live within the Dragon’s Den, one family stands paramount, producing pokemon that have allied with the likes of Lance and Clair. Vivian is a scion of that same line of dragons, and is both aware and proud of her heritage.

Cool and self-assured, Vivian is the strongest member of an already powerful team. The weight of that role and her own legacy weigh heavily on her and drive her to strive for victory. She is quiet, preferring to let Noelle and Jacob do the leading and Randall the thinking, preferring to speak with actions on the battlefield than with words. When she is not battling, she can be found enjoying leisure time; her favorite activity is dozing beneath the sun.

While training up to be a Dragonite, a Koffing threatened to kill her with Explosion while she was still weak and underleveled. Aaron the Kadabra gave his life to save her, and she has never forgotten that. She knows that Aaron and Jacob were in a relationship and she blames herself for ripping them apart. Because she is not good with words, she has failed to articulate her feelings on the matter to Jacob himself, but she hopes to one day prove her remorse by saving him in return for Aaron’s actions.

Among the teammates, her best friends are Noelle, whom she respects as a powerful, female dragonic pokemon, and Sofia, who entered the team around the same time.

SOFIA
Species: Starmie, lv. 53
Nature: Rash, “proud of its power.”
Met: Fished up on Route 47.
Current Moves: Surf, Ice Beam. Psychic, Thunderbolt

Rash is right.

Added to the team to fill the void left by Aaron, Sofia has proven to be a scrappy member of the team. None doubt her power or her eagerness to battle, but Sofia has a hair-trigger temper that makes it easy to set her off, and easier still for her to hold grudges. This has not endeared her to the more reserved members of the team, Kenya and Noelle.

Still, she is fueled by genuine passion and a willingness to prove herself, coupled with childlike moments of surprising tenderness. Her first action on joining the team was to console Jacob over the loss of Aaron, and though they have butted heads since then (Jacob’s gruffness and Sofia’s easily-offended nature make for an interesting combination) Jacob has not forgot that early kindness.

She gets along surprisingly well with Randall, whose introversion plays off of her wild personality quite well, and often drags him away from his research to help her on whatever wild adventure she’s concocted for the day. She is also good friends with Vivian, who entered the team around the same time.

Like all Staryu and Starmie, Sofia has no biological sex. However, she self-identifies as female.

BUFFER TEAM

The glory days of the buffer team are long since passed. Once filled with earnest up-and-comers who were potentials for the team, the buffer has been left vacant since many of said pokemon have been promoted to fill emptying spots. Now most of the buffer squad are pokemon used for HM moves.

CARMEN
Species: Raticate, lv. 27
Nature: Hardy, “loves to eat.”
Met: The first pokemon Dee ever caught.
Current Moves: Strength, Dig, Sucker Punch, Rock Smash

Carmen was the emotional core of the team back when she was a main teammate, and continued serving in that role even after being demoted to buffer status. However, the loss of Felix, her close friend and possible lover, devastated her and left her fragile. Since then, Carmen has recovered and is again outgoing and motherly, though the experience has left her older, wiser, and a touch more melancholy. Still, she does her best to coddle all of the other pokemon, who see her as the unofficial “team mom.”

LIZZIE
Species: Beedrill, lv. 10
Nature: Lonely, “often scatters things.”
Met: Caught on Route 30.
Current Moves: Poison Sting, Cut, Rock Smash, Flash

Dee’s go-to pokemon for HM moves, Lizzie is the leader of the boxed pokemon. Once a temperamental and vindictive pokemon, she has gradually undergone a change as two of the pokmon she nursed grudges against—Felix and Aaron—were killed, while the third, Carmen, was left emotionally devastated.

Having realized her old grudges were small and petty, Lizzie now lives to bring happiness to the boxed pokemon and always put others above herself. She tries to avoid being catty in day-to-day affairs and is mostly successful.

TREVOR
Species: Shellder, lv. 26
Nature: Naughty, “capable of taking hits.”
Met: Fished up on Route 41.
Current Moves: Icicle Spear, Supersonic, Blizzard, Surf

The days of him being considered a likely swap-in to the main party are past, and Trevor is perfectly okay with that. He is a goofball who loves pranking others, and was often Laika’s partner in her endeavors. Her passing has left him saddened, but support from Lizzie, Carmen, and the other boxed pokemon are doing wonders for him.

GEOFF
Species: Tentacool, lv. 13
Nature: Timid, “good endurance.”
Met: Encountered on Route 40.
Current Moves: Surf, Whirlpool, Supersonic, Wrap

After the death of Felix but before the addition of Sofia, Geoff was an add-in every time Dee needed to cross a body of water. Though he sees no combat, this Tentacool has spent a fair amount of time around many members of the team. He has total nerdgasms over them and tells exaggerated stories about his exploits with them while with other boxed pokemon, and nurses a hopeless crush on Noelle.

VLADIMIR
Species: Snorlax, lv. 50
Nature: Serious, “often dozes.”
Met: Was sleeping in front of Diglett’s Cave.
Current Moves: Rest, Rollout, Crunch, Giga Impact

Vladmir is the only member of the buffer team who fits the old mold—a powerful, up-to-level potential party member. Little is known about Vladimir, as he is often sleeping and his extreme power and stern demeanor put off other pokemon even when he is awake, but he appears to legitimately respect Randall and Jacob, the pokemon who wore him down for Dee to capture him.

FALLEN POKEMON
Though they fell over the course of the journey, Dee and each of his current teammates have sworn to see the adventure through for the sake of these pokemon.

HAMILTON
Species: Ditto
Nature: Impish, “capable of taking hits.”
Met: Encountered just south of Goldenrod
Death: One-shotted by a Kadabra’s Confusion.

Little is known of this pokemon, as he died not long after entering the team. As the first casualty of the adventure, he holds a special place in the memory of his fellow pokemon.

LEON
Species: Espeon
Nature: Timid, “highly persistent.”
Met: Given as a gift by Bill.
Death: Killed while training in the wild.

This eager, youthful pokemon was loved by all and treated as the team’s younger brother. His death devastated everyone.

THOMAS
Species: Slowpoke
Nature: Rash, “hates to lose.”
Met: Rescued from Team Rocket in the Slowpoke Well.
Death: Took a Dragon Rage while he had less than 40 HP.

Thomas was a driven yet goofy pokemon who got along well with other members of the party. His was the first death of a main party pokemon.

EMILIA
Species: Gastly
Nature: Hardy, “often dozes off.”
Met: Found in the Sprout Tower.
Death: Slain by a Kangaskhan with Scrappy.

This shy little ghost was very sweet, and was especially good friends with Carmen. She was often used to catch new wild pokemon, but was killed shortly before she came into her own as a Haunter.

VICTOIRE
Species: Graveler
Nature: Calm, “quick to flee.”
Met: Caught in Union Cave.
Death: Took a critical hit from Executive Archer’s Houndoom.

Victoire was famously grumpy, but still a beloved member of the team. She had the terrible misfortune to die in the very same battle she learned Earthquake in, failing to even use the move once.

AUTUMN
Species: Graveler
Nature: Docile, “highly curious.”
Met: Picked up on Route 45.
Death: Slain by a fellow Graveler’s Magnitude attack.

Very little is known about Autumn. She was killed on the very same route she was encountered when another Graveler got lucky and hit her with a Magnitude 10. She remains a departed enigma to the surviving pokemon.

FRANKLIN
Species: Ampharos
Nature: Serious, “capable of taking hits.”
Met: Caught on Route 32.
Death: Killed by Clair’s Kingdra.

The former team leader. Franklin was not well liked, especially, but was respected for his strong will. He had an intense rivalry with Felix, but was touched when the Feraligatr rushed to avenge him in the battle with Clair. His leadership has had a strong impact on Noelle, who strives to emulate him, though she is generally more personable.

FELIX
Species: Feraligatr
Nature: Docile, “capable of taking hits.”
Met: A starter pokemon received from Professor Elm.
Death: Took a critical hit Hydro Pump from Clair’s Kingdra.

Dee’s starter pokemon, Felix was respected for his power and his vibrant personality. If Franklin was the head of the early team and Carmen the heart, then Felix was the spirit, always encouraging the others to push themselves even further. He had a bitter rivalry with Franklin and resented not being the leader, but was torn to see him killed. Felix rushed in to avenge him but was killed himself, leaving a great hole in the team.

LAIKA
Species: Stantler
Nature: Naughty, “somewhat of a clown.”
Met: Found just south of Ecruteak.
Death: Took Psychic that was guaranteed to kill one member of the team.

Hiding behind her prankster nature was a perceptive, empathic pokemon. Laika supported Noelle in her early days as leader and kept the team together after the dual deaths of Franklin and Felix.

Due to its power and its vast levels, Sabrina’s Alakazam was at one point guaranteed to kill whichever pokemon it attacked next. Laika opted to take the fatal blow so that Dee could heal up Noelle to battle fresh, sacrificing her life for the good of the team. For this, she is regarded as the noblest of pokemon.

AARON
Species: Kadabra
Nature: Gentle, “likes to fight.”
Met: Purchased in Goldenrod City.
Death: Took a Koffing’s Explosion.

This genteel Kadabra had a competitive streak to him, but was beloved by most of his fellow pokemon. He had a reputation as impossible to woo—many of the female pokemon tried—but after Jacob hooked up with him, many of his failed paramours wondered why they didn’t see it sooner.

When Vivan was still training, a Koffing threatened to kill her with an Explosion. Aaron leapt in to shield her, protecting the young dragon at the cost of his life. It is known he blamed himself for Felix’s death (as he initially attempted to avenge Franklin but proved too weak to face Kingdra) and some of the teammates wonder if this survivor’s guilt is the reason why he sacrificed himself.

Nuzlocke Adventure 37: Water, Water Everywhere

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 28, 2015, 10:24 PM


THE RULES: 

1—All pokemon must be nicknamed.

2—I must attempt to catch the first pokemon I see in any route or area. I may catch no others in that area.

3—If a pokemon faints, it is considered “dead” and may no longer be used. I will release them from the next PC.

4—Legendaries cannot be caught or used.

5—The Pokewalker cannot be used.

6—If the first encounter is a duplicate of a pokemon I already have, I may ignore it and re-try for a new one. After three re-tries, however, I must catch the fourth one even if it is a dupe.

7—Gift pokemon, such as Bill’s Eevee or the Tyrogue from the Karate King, can be accepted and used and do not count under the “first encounter” rule. Forced encounters, such as Sudowoodo and the Red Gyarados, however, do count under the “first encounter” rule.

8—In-game trades are acceptable, but out-of-game trades, even to make pokemon such as Haunter or Graveler evolve, are not.

9—The Daycare Center cannot be used to breed, but it can be used to level up pokemon.

10—If all pokemon in my party faint, or if I am in a situation where I need to use a move like Cut or Surf to progress but have no pokemon that can use these moves and cannot obtain one without breaking the rules, I lose and my adventure ends.

Cerulean City

We’re here, and ready to beat Misty to boot! I’ve boxed Lizzie and brought Sofia back into the party. But first, let's head to the left.

 

Route 4

Not much to do here, but there is a grassy patch. I already have every pokemon offered here, but it is a Thursday. Let’s try Sinnoh Sounds on the radio station! Maybe I’ll get a Buizel!

 

…or a Bidoof. Okay. I name him Rupert. Hasty nature, “capable of taking hits.” Let’s go north from Cerulean.

 

Route 24

Fought everyone here already, remember? Also caught a pokemon.

 

Route 25

Same deal. Let’s head to the end of the route. Misty’s there! I know you’re in the middle of something (looks like a date) but BATTLE ME NOW!! This is more important!

 

Cerulean City

Time to take me on a Gym! What’s the gym guy say here?

 

“Yo! Legend in the making! Since Misty was away, I went out for some fun, too. He-he-he.”

 

…O_o You know, that last added “he-he-he” really makes the whole thing sound suspect. Just sayin’.

 

Does Randall completely rip through all of the opposition? Of course he does. Now let’s do the same to the head honcho.

 

BOSS: Gym Leader Misty

You’d think I’d get sick of this music after hearing it a million times. WRONG

 

Misty leads with Golduck, lv. 49. Go, Randall lv. 56! Golduck uses Disable on its first turn but outspeeds me and accomplishes nothing. Randall OHKOs with Thunderbolt and grows to lv. 57. Misty’ s sending out Quagsire lv. 49 now.  I don’t have anything with a Grass-type move, so I’ll have to hope that Vivian, lv. 56, is strong enough for the job!

 

Vivian uses Dragon Claw first turn to deal over half of Quagsire’s HP in damage. Quagsire uses Amnesia in response. Quagsire goes down and Vivian also grows to lv. 57.

 

Misty’s now sending in Lapras lv. 52. Let’s return to Randall. Thunderbolt! It hits and OHKOs. Hoorah! Misty’s final pokemon is a lv. 54 Starmie. Let’s keep in Randall.  Thunderbolt again! Starmie gets off a Water Pulse, but Randall endures it handily and drops yet another OHKO. The Cascade Badge is mine, as is the Water Pulse TM.

 

And that’s it! Next time, we’ll hopefully get yet another Kanto Gym badge. Stay tuned!


(Also, talking with Randall in the Gym made him jab left and right and prompted the text, “Why is it doing warm-up exercises.” Wut.)

Current Teammates: Kenya (Fearow), Noelle (Gyarados), Randall (Magneton), Jacob (Nidoking), Vivian (Dragonite), Sofia (Starmie)

I haven't meant to go so long without it, but real life has been extremely crushing this last little bit. :(
