Nuzlocke Adventure 12: Memento Mori

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 24, 2014, 3:20 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.

Ecruteak City

Leon is dead.

 

I evolved him into an Espeon and was training him to be near the rest of my team in the route south of Ecruteak. A wild Stantler got a critical hit Stomp against him and wiped him out.

 

Leon’s personality was cute. He was shy but also playful and good-hearted. He was an incredible pokemon… I was honestly thinking of making him a permanent teammate.

 

I'm sorry, Leon.

 

We’ve fooled around enough. It’s time to progress. To the north of town is the Burned Tower.

 

Burned Tower

I immediately spy three interesting pokemon in the basement floor. Morty and Eusine are hanging nearby (I ship them.)

 

Eusine’s music is pretty great, but I need to figure out how to get down to the legendary pokemon. Let me pass, magician-man!

 

…whoops, someone else is here too.

 

BOSS: Silver

Silver sends out Gastly lv. 20; I send out Victoire lv. 20. I go ahead and switch out to Carmen, also lv. 20. And augh, Gastly places a Curse! Time to switch again! You know what? I’m gonna chance it. Go, Thomas!

 

Thomas, lv. 18, uses Confusion after some status shenanigans from Gastly and takes it down. Next up is Bayleef, lv. 22! I think it’s time to send in a Gastly of my own. Emilia is lv. 18; go, Emilia!

 

Hypnosis, Curse, and then a few Night Shades for victory. Next up is Franklin lv. 18 versus Zubat lv. 20. Thunder somehow misses FOUR TIMES IN A ROW but finally activates and, predictably, one-shots the bat.

 

Last up is Magnemite, lv. 18, versus Victoire. Silver pops in and says “sometimes in desperation, weak people do OK in fighting back.” Yes, Silver, but you’re not one of those weak people. You’re just a normal weak person. Magnitude ends Magnemite for victory.

 

Down the ladder, I approach the legendary dogs… but first, the wild pokemon of the area! It’s a Koffing. A female Koffing? How does that work? Anyway, I name her Corrine. “Quiet nature. Mischevious.”

 

I scare off the legendary pokemon and Eusine doesn’t get mad for some reason, even though this is apparently his life dream.

 

Morty should be back in his Gym, but I’m vastly outleveled; going there now would be slaughter. Time to level. I’ll poke around the Burned Tower. Ugh, more firebreathers! They use Koffing and fire-types… looks like a job for Thomas!

 

The first guy does some negligible damage, but Thomas sweeps him. He’s got 38 HP; still in the green! Puh-lease! Then the next sends out a Charmeleon. Pffft, really? You got one move before Surf hits you, baby! What can you possibly—

 

“Charmeleon used Dragon Rage.”

 

…no… No. NO! Thomas! ;.; He’s… he’s down… he’s dead! My Slowpoke! Thomas…

 

Carmen avenges Thomas without a problem, but he’s still gone. Why? I was doing so good, and then… all these deaths, all so recently. Hamilton, Leon, and even Thomas, one of my main pokemon…

 

I must be doing something wrong.

 

I still need to train for Morty… I’ll return when everyone’s sufficiently leveled.

 

Ecruteak City

(Joey)

 

(I will kill you if you keep calling)

 

Okay, I’m all leveled. Every member of my main and buffer teams are lv. 22. Kenya even evolved into a Fearow! By the by, have I told you guys anything about her personality yet? She’s stern and serious and puts her entire being into battle. Intense.

 

For my party, I’ve added Kenya and Aaron to the group and dropped Emilia, who would basically be useless here. Also picked up Mom’s gift of a Super Potion from the mart. Okay… let’s do this JOEY YOU JUST BARELY CALLED ME OKAY GIVE IT A BREAK

 

Medium Georgina has a whopping five Gastly on her team. Wowzers! But each one goes down to a single Thundershock from Franklin. They don’t even get the chance to move! Poor little ghosties… :’p

 

The next medium offers a “hint” that’s basically rendered useless in the remake’s new layout. Ugh, confusion. It’s supposed to be a 50% chance to hurt yourself, but in practice it cripples me completely as my pokemon attack themselves turn after turn. Still, when Felix’s Bite goes through, it one-shots that Haunter!

 

Kenya sweeps the next two trainers with ease. Now it’s time to go back, heal up, and hope for the best. It’s time to face down Ecruteak’s seer… Morty!

 

BOSS: Gym Leader Morty

I have to say, Morty’s new redesign is swank, with his scarf. Anyway, he sends out Gastly lv. 21, and I counter with Felix lv. 23. Gastly tried to trap me with Mean Look but it’s irrelevant as Felix one-shots it with Bite.

 

Crap, he’s sending out Gengar, lv. 25. This pokemon makes me nervous. Here’s hoping my strategy works… Franklin, lv. 23! Thunder Wave! Hahah! Enjoy that paralysis, sucker! Now, Thunder! Thunder takes away a fair chunk of HP, but he heals with a Sitrus Berry and puts me to sleep with Hypnosis. Hmm, to heal or to switch? Franklin hasn’t taken any damage… I’ll use a Chesto Berry.

 

Mwahaha! I healed up the sleep and he wasted a turn with Sucker Punch! One more Thunder should take him down… accuracy, don’t fail me now! Gah! It misses, and Gengar traps me with Mean Look. I’m worried about how much damage a Shadow Ball will do… c’mon, hit!

 

Success! Franklin’s Thunder hits and takes down Gengar. It never got a single chance to use that Shadow Ball! Next up is Haunter, lv. 21. Switching back to Felix. Haunter uses Curse, ensuring I’ll take it out with another Bite.

 

Next up is his final Haunter, lv. 23. I switch to Kenya, lv. 23. Her Normal type resists Ghost and she pwns him with Aerial Ace!

 

And with that, Morty is down and the Fog Badge and Shadow Ball TM are ours! However, we mustn’t get too excited. Though we succeeded against him, we still lost valued comrades in Thomas and Leon. Now that we have four badges, we’ll continue our journey next time. Goodbye, my friends...

Current Teammates: Felix (Croconaw), Carmen (Raticate), Franklin (Flaaffy), Victoire (Geodude), Kenya (Fearow), Aaron (Kadabra)

Goldenrod City

Three badges down, five to go! (Technically thirteen since I plan on tackling Kanto… sob) Next door to the Gym, I pick up a squirtbottle. Why couldn’t I have had Felix or Thomas use Water Gun on it? Who knows? Anyway, I’ll meet you back at the tree.

 

Route 36

Thomas and Emilia are back in my party, replacing Kenya and Aaron. It’s Sudowoodo! I’m not afraid, seeing’s how I’ve got me a Water-type out front. Go, Thomas!

 

Critical hit Water Gun? It didn’t stand a chance! Oh, and mom bought stuff with my money again. Still, onward and northward!

 

Route 37

It’s a new area. You know what that means…

 

“A wild Stantler appeared!” Um… hmm. She actually put up a pretty decent fight against getting caught, but she’s mine nonetheless. Name’s Laika. “Naughty nature. Somewhat of a clown.” I’ll probably keep her in the box; Carmen’s all the Normal-type I need. <3

 

Oh! Up there is Sunny of Sunday. Well, who’da thunk? He gives me a Magnet, which I’m affixing to Franklin straight away!

 

Uh-oh, double battle! Emilia and Franklin, teamup of the century! Further up is another double battle. This time it’s Carmen and Felix, the first two pokemon I ever had! (They’re also probably the best friends out of the whole group… hehehe)

 

Yikes, Clefable and Wigglytuff? Sure, they’re only Lv. 16, but that’s still two fully evolved pokemon!

 

Thankfully, a combination of Hyper Fang and Heabutt ensures the flinchhax is on my side this time! Bwahahahaha!

 

Ecruteak City

It’s all so… Japanese! I love it! Lots of things to do here, but first stop is going to be the pokemon center. Bill shows up. We’ll be seeing him later… ;D

 

And… Lyra? Why are you calling me? You are in a conspiracy with Joey, aren’t you? I knew it! In the house next door, I get a Dowsing MCHN. No, not a machine. A MCHN.

 

Oh! Emilia found a pretty orange flower and gave it to me! Aww… <3

 

Nearby, there’s trouble brewing in the Ecruteak Dance Theatre! Forward… charge! A Team Rocket grunt is harassing one of those Kimono Girls. Time to show him what I’m made of! Afterwards, the Kimono Girl says something enigmatic (as usual) and I get a Surf HM. Whoa! It was just a lv. 12 Koffing, guys!

 

In the mart nearby, I get mom’s delivery. More berries?!

 

There’s still things to do in the Burned Tower and the Gym, but I have a few errands to run. First, back to GoldenroooooarrrrRRGGHHHHH

 

I SWEAR, JOEY, ONE OF THESE DAYS

 

Goldenrod City

I temporarily box Carmen. Why? You know why!

 

Eevee, lv. 5. “Timid nature. Highly persistent.” Male, so I’m naming him Leon. If he was female, I’d name him after a certain fanfic character instead… (;

 

Goldenrod Underground

Leon gets a haircut, the first of what I can only assume will be many. Can you guess what I’m gonna evolve him into?

 

Violet City

Now that I can access this place again, it’s time to deliver that mail I got a while back. A farewell to Kenya? Hardly! I like her, and I’m gonna keep her around! I don’t have to deliver her—only the mail!

 

I attach the mail to Wendy, that Kakuna I caught way before my first badge, swapping out Franklin for her.

 

Route 31

Time to hand over the mail to that sleepy fat guy. He doesn’t recognize Wendy, so he just takes the mail and leaves my pokemon alone. I get to keep Kenya and score a TM out of the deal! Huzzah! Now I’m heading south. Why? You’ll see…

 

Cherrygrove City

I swap Wendy out in favor of Ronan, the Togepi. Now I’m sure you know what’s up, right?

 

New Bark Town

Hello there, Professor. Ever since I’ve had to deal with the unholy duo of Joey and Lyra, I no longer find you as annoying as I once did.

 

Don’t get me wrong, you’re still plenty annoying. You’re just the lesser of three evils now.

 

And he gives me an Everstone! Now I can waste a hold item slot for one of my pokemon to stop them from evolving even though I could just press the B Button. And I can’t think of a single pokemon where permanent un-evolution would be an advantage. You… shouldn’t have.

 

Well, I’m all done with errands now, right? Wrong!

 

Dark Cave

Forgot about this place, didn’t you? Well, so did I, otherwise I would’ve come here right after clearing Sprout Tower. Oh well. I swapped Ronan for Lizzie back in Cherrygrove City. Now let’s Flash it up!

 

I get a Star Piece from smashing rocks and some minor healing items. The Star Piece alone made it worth it! Now I’m done with errands, right?

 

Hahaha NOPE

 

Goldenrod City

Yep, back here again. I have to tell the gate guard that I completed his task, which would be easier if Joey would stop calling. One free HP Up! Woot! And now we’re finally done with all these errands. Join me next time as we return to Ecruteak and progress the main story! Stay tuned!

Current Teammates: Felix (Croconaw), Emilia (Gastly), Victoire (Geodude), Thomas (Slowpoke), Leon (Eevee), Lizzie (Beedrill)

Goldenrod City

It’s time. Every single one of my main and buffer teammates are lv. 18, except for Kenya who is lv. 20. Regarding party setup for the Gym, I’ve exchanged Emilia for Kenya, since Emilia’s only damaging move is resisted by the whole Gym, and Thomas for Aaron, since Aaron’s faster and has twice the Sp. Atk; he might be useful for a last-minute sledgehammer against Whitney. I’ve got healing items and others packed away. It’s time to take on a fat cow—and her Miltank too! (Oh! Burn!)

 

I won’t pretend I’m not nervous… I have Carmen in the lead. I might be able to raise her a couple of levels and get her evolved before the boss. The first trainer has nothing but Sentrets; Carmen OHKOs them all with Hyper Fang. The next trainer’s Meowth gives us a bit of trouble but Carmen pulls through.

 

Carmen pwns the next trainer, and then we’ve got one more before Whitney. Will she make it to her evolution…?

 

Success! Carmen just makes it in time for Whitney! Say hello to my brand new Raticate!

 

I return to the pokemon center to heal, and I also rearrange my party. I can’t deny the feeling of sinking dread in my chest! :c Please let everyone pull through it okay.

 

And with that…

 

BOSS: Gym Leader Whitney

“I’m warning you—I’m good!” I know, Whitney. That’s what I’m afraid of.

 

Again the awesome music makes its appearance. Now its frentic desperation feels ominous…

Clefairy Lv. 17 versus Kenya Lv. 20. I’ve decided to start strong. Go, Aerial Ace! She uses Doubleslap, doing minimal damage. Another Aerial Ace from me brings Clefairy within a sliver of death; will she waste her potion here?

 

She does! Kenya shaves her down to half HP the very same turn she heals up, and outspeeds to knock out Celfairy before it can make a move. Success, Kenya!

 

That, however, was just the opening act. The real battle… begins now!!

 

Whitney sends out Miltank, Lv. 19! Go, Victoire! I buff my Geodude with an X Defend first turn. Stomp only does five damage! Next turn I use an X Attack.

 

Now… MAGNITUDE!

 

Magnitude 8… no, it only takes away about a third of her HP! Still, with my defense buff and a few Super Potions, I should be able to outlast her!

 

Gah! Stupid flinchhax with Stomp keeps stealing my turns. I have to heal up…

 

Curses! Whitney’s packing a second Super Potion! I almost had her!

 

Whitney keeps whittling me down with Stomp. Those flinches are wasting a lot of turns… I’ve also had some bad luck with Magnitude. A lot of fives.

 

Oh! I finally got a high number; she’s in the red! I think she’s out of potions, but will she use Milk Drink?

 

No, Stomp again! Please don’t flinch, please don’t flinch… YES!! Victoire did it! Miltank is down, and I didn’t lose anyone! And Victoire leveled up to 19!

 

The Plain Badge and Attract TM are mine. Huzzah!

 

With this, one of the biggest obstacles in the game is out of the way. I feel so much better! Next time, we’ll continue our journey and finally get rid of that squiggly tree. Stay tuned!

Goldenrod City

Don’t bite the apple, Eve. Caught up in the “in” crowd, now you’re in style, and if the winter gets cold, en vogue with your skin out. The city of sin is a pity on a whim, good girls gone bad, this city’s filled with them…

 

…Ahem.

 

Back in town, and now it’s finally time to explore around Goldenrod City. I might have a little bit of alcohol in my system, so bear with me! <3 First up, let’s see what the department store has to offer! …oh right, Mom’s packages. I get berries and a repel. Yay…

 

“The basement is the warehouse. It’s not open to customers.” But you still brought me down here, elevator lady! I’m glad I came, though. All kinds of swag!

 

…hehe, watching Thomas go up the escalators. ^^ So cute! I also pick up Thunder for Franklin… >:’D Muaha…MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Some guy wants to trade a Machop for a Drowzee, but I don’t have one… :c

 

That’s all for the department store. Let’s check out other places! At the game corner, I can buy an Abra, a Sandshrew, and a Dratini, though the latter costs a whopping 2100 coins! Voltorb Flip is pretty addicting; I gather up 900 coins and purchase both an Abra and a Sandshrew. I’ve decided to pass on a Dratini, as it’s weak until it evolves into Dragonair (and even then it’s just okay until it evolves again at Lv. 55) and you get a great one for free later on. Abra is named Aaron, “Gentle nature, likes to fight,” and Sandshrew is Regina, “Brave nature, strong willed.”

 

I’m boxing Regina but I’m switching out Emilia for Aaron at the moment; he only has one level to go before evolving. I’ve been thinking about cycling pokemon like Aaron, Kenya, and Hamilton (before he died) in and out of the party to create a “buffer” of sorts. They wouldn’t be part of my main party per se, but they could fill in on bosses some members of my main party would have a hard time against and provide an up-to-level replacement if one of my mainstays bites the bullet. So thus far we have a main party—Felix, Carmen, Franklin, Emilia, Victoire, and Thomas—and two “buffer” pokemon: Aaron and Kenya.

 

I get a free Bicycle, but I’m not gonna use it much since I like seeing my pokemon toddle after me.

 

Now there’s two more stops to make, but they’re both pretty big ones…

 

Radio Tower

Yes, I’m including this as its own area for reasons that should be obvious if you’re familiar with these games.

 

Whitney’s here, trying to get a radio card. She says the quiz is too hard. Let’s take a look at some of these questions: “Can you check your Town Map with your pokegear?” “Nidorina can only be female, correct?”

 

…Whitney, dear, really? Were we asked the same questions? I have a hard time believing you didn’t know these facts. I get a Radio Card, and upstairs a Blue Card for password points. The guard says something’s wrong with the director. OH MAN WHAT COULD IT BE

 

Our next stop…

 

Goldenrod Underground

THIS IS ITS OWN AREA TOO OKAY SHUT UP

 

I entered from the southern exit, near Bill’s house. …nooooooooooooooooooo!! It’s Lyra! Go away go away go away go away go away go away go away go away go away go away go away go away go away NO I DON’T WANT A FASHION CASE TO PLAY DRESS UP WITH MY POKEMON

 

I ONLY DRESS UP MYSELF OKAY IT HAPPENS IN POKEMON Y

 

There are trainers down here. “My pokemon just got a haircut. I’ll show you how strong it is!” Your pokemon’s a Lickitung. I don’t think it has hair…

 

Speaking of haircuts, I give Carmen one. Aww! The photo guy lets me dress up as Team Rocket, which just seems like a bad idea. Wouldn’t that be like dressing up as the Crips? …what the hell, I’ll do it anyway.

 

After a few more battles, Aaron evolves into a Kadabra. Huzzah! Incidentally, from roaming around with him, I’ve noticed Aaron loves buildings and the city and doesn’t like the countryside, haha! I guess it makes sense—he grew up in Goldenrod, after all. He’s a city boy to the core!

 

And with that, every one of my main and buffer pokemon, except Aaron himself, is at the desired level for the Gym. Next time, we tackle one of the most infamous bosses in the pokemon franchise. Stay tuned…

Goldenrod City

Despite the fact that there’s a million things to do here, I’m going to ignore most of them for now. I’m not ready to deal with all the stuff in Goldenrod quite yet, and I’m certainly not prepared to throw down with Whitney.

 

The guy in the northern gate wants mail delivered and hands me a free Spearow holding some mail. Woot! Kenya’s details are: “Hasty nature. Proud of its power.” And she's level 20 with Aerial Ace?!?!

 

I finally have a Flying-type and I’m tempted to put her on my team, but who could I replace for her? Carmen and Emilia are probably the weakest links, but I really like both of them! :c And that’s not even counting how I also wouldn’t mind sticking in Hamilton thanks to his Quick Powder! I’m putting Kenya in the box for now, and finally drawing out Victoire.

 

Route 35

There’s actually no grass nearby, so I’ll have to fight my way through a horde of trainers before I get a chance to try. “I count more on my pokemon than my boyfriend,” says one picknicker. And he’s standing right next to her! Ouch!

 

Felix reaches Lv. 18 and evolves into Croconaw. Hells yeah! ;D

 

“Behold my dexterity and grace!” says the guy who leads with a Lv. 2 (!!) Voltorb. Pffft, what? And Juggler Irwin now has our number. I’m sure he won’t do anything creepy with it! :’p

 

Oh lord another firebreather. Let’s go, Thomas.

 

CRITICAL HIT FAINT ATACK FROM A MAGMAR

 

…Thomas only barely survives with 3HP! Switching to Carmen… D:

 

*whew!* thanks to speed and Hyper Fang, the crisis is over! And now… we’re finally to some grass!

 

“A wild Pidgey appeared!” …aw, Felix, you took it down again?! Do you have some sort of vendetta against Pidgeys? I find a Payback TM at the bottom of the route and then it’s time to enter the National Park!

 

National Park

Oh, looks like we have our first call from Irwin! “I always look forward to what you’ll be doing next, Dee! *click!*” …um…

 

Since Felix is Lv. 18, which is what I’m aiming for with all party members for Whitney, I’ve temporarily boxed him and given Hamilton, the Ditto, a spot on the team. Let’s just see how this works out! :3

 

…and augh, this music! So beautiful! uwu  I’m avoid the grass for now, because I want to try for a Scyther or Pinsir in the Bug-Catching Contest after I’m done exploring.

 

In the back we find a Soothe Bell, a Dig TM which I teach to Carmen, and a Full Heal. A teacher also gives us a Quick Claw which I give to Thomas right away. Also, everyone here is shilling the Pokewalker for some reason. Too bad I can’t use it! ;w;

 

Before we take care of the Bug-Catching Contest and the trainers in the grass, I’ve got one more place to visit…

 

Route 36

Nearby is a trainer. Let’s take Hamilton on a test drive!

 

His first pokemon is an Abra, which probably doesn’t know any damaging moves. Let’s not Transform on this one. Go, Emilia! …and his next pokemon is another Abra. -_-

 

Ah, a Kadabra! Now here is a worthy foe! Thanks to the Quick Powder, Hamilton should outspeed. Hamilton, transform!

 

Ohmigosh Hamilton doesn’t outspeed NOOOOOOO KADABRA KILLED HIM WITH CONFUSION TTmTT

 

My first death… no, poor Hamilton! D: I thought… I thought you were a cool little guy. I wanted you on my team. I never saw you do battle… I never even got to know you. Sorry…

 

Aaah! Kadabra almost takes down both Thomas and Franklin as well! I endure thanks to some item usage…

 

That’s… it’s finally over. Sorry again, Hamilton…

 

Grass…

 

Female Nidoran. Named her Nikki. Personal details are: “Naïve nature. Capable of taking hits.”

 

I meet a kid who promises to give me stuff next time we talk. Also, Mom bought another new thing with my money! : O

 

…and that’s it for here. Time for the Bug-Catching Contest.

 

National Park

All right. I’ve got Emilia, pokemon catcher extraordinaire, out front. Let’s see if I get lucky and score me a Pinsir or a Scyther! I’d settle for a Venonat, though. Heck, even a Butterfree. Anything that’s not a Weedle evolution.

 

Entering the super-tall grass at the top of the park. Pleeeaaase! *-*

 

…It’s a Butterfree. :I Well, whatever. Go, Emilia.

 

DAMMIT

 

OF COURSE THE VERY NEXT POKEMON I RUN INTO IS A SCYTHER

 

WHY WOULDN’T IT BE

 

Regarding Butterfree, I’m naming him Bud. “Quirky nature. Likes to fight.” I don’t even place in the top three for the contest. There goes my chance at a Sun Stone… Bud gets boxed.

 

Now that I’ve completed the contest, I’m free to enter the grass and clean house. And jeez, all the trainers here want my number!

 

And with that, all our errands north of the city are done. We lost our first friend today, and I can’t say that I expect he’ll be our last. Despite the dangers that lie in wait for us, however, we will beat on, borne against the tides of the future, determined. Next time, we return to Goldenrod and prepare for everything to do there. Stay tuned.

Current Teammates: Felix (Croconaw), Carmen (Rattata), Franklin (Flaaffy), Emilia (Gastly), Victoire (Geodude), Thomas (Slowpoke)

Nuzlocke Adventure 12: Memento Mori

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 24, 2014, 3:20 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.

Deaths so far: 2

Badges so far: 3

---

Ecruteak City

Leon is dead.

 

I evolved him into an Espeon and was training him to be near the rest of my team in the route south of Ecruteak. A wild Stantler got a critical hit Stomp against him and wiped him out.

 

Leon’s personality was cute. He was shy but also playful and good-hearted. He was an incredible pokemon… I was honestly thinking of making him a permanent teammate.

 

I'm sorry, Leon.

 

We’ve fooled around enough. It’s time to progress. To the north of town is the Burned Tower.

 

Burned Tower

I immediately spy three interesting pokemon in the basement floor. Morty and Eusine are hanging nearby (I ship them.)

 

Eusine’s music is pretty great, but I need to figure out how to get down to the legendary pokemon. Let me pass, magician-man!

 

…whoops, someone else is here too.

 

BOSS: Silver

Silver sends out Gastly lv. 20; I send out Victoire lv. 20. I go ahead and switch out to Carmen, also lv. 20. And augh, Gastly places a Curse! Time to switch again! You know what? I’m gonna chance it. Go, Thomas!

 

Thomas, lv. 18, uses Confusion after some status shenanigans from Gastly and takes it down. Next up is Bayleef, lv. 22! I think it’s time to send in a Gastly of my own. Emilia is lv. 18; go, Emilia!

 

Hypnosis, Curse, and then a few Night Shades for victory. Next up is Franklin lv. 18 versus Zubat lv. 20. Thunder somehow misses FOUR TIMES IN A ROW but finally activates and, predictably, one-shots the bat.

 

Last up is Magnemite, lv. 18, versus Victoire. Silver pops in and says “sometimes in desperation, weak people do OK in fighting back.” Yes, Silver, but you’re not one of those weak people. You’re just a normal weak person. Magnitude ends Magnemite for victory.

 

Down the ladder, I approach the legendary dogs… but first, the wild pokemon of the area! It’s a Koffing. A female Koffing? How does that work? Anyway, I name her Corrine. “Quiet nature. Mischevious.”

 

I scare off the legendary pokemon and Eusine doesn’t get mad for some reason, even though this is apparently his life dream.

 

Morty should be back in his Gym, but I’m vastly outleveled; going there now would be slaughter. Time to level. I’ll poke around the Burned Tower. Ugh, more firebreathers! They use Koffing and fire-types… looks like a job for Thomas!

 

The first guy does some negligible damage, but Thomas sweeps him. He’s got 38 HP; still in the green! Puh-lease! Then the next sends out a Charmeleon. Pffft, really? You got one move before Surf hits you, baby! What can you possibly—

 

“Charmeleon used Dragon Rage.”

 

…no… No. NO! Thomas! ;.; He’s… he’s down… he’s dead! My Slowpoke! Thomas…

 

Carmen avenges Thomas without a problem, but he’s still gone. Why? I was doing so good, and then… all these deaths, all so recently. Hamilton, Leon, and even Thomas, one of my main pokemon…

 

I must be doing something wrong.

 

I still need to train for Morty… I’ll return when everyone’s sufficiently leveled.

 

Ecruteak City

(Joey)

 

(I will kill you if you keep calling)

 

Okay, I’m all leveled. Every member of my main and buffer teams are lv. 22. Kenya even evolved into a Fearow! By the by, have I told you guys anything about her personality yet? She’s stern and serious and puts her entire being into battle. Intense.

 

For my party, I’ve added Kenya and Aaron to the group and dropped Emilia, who would basically be useless here. Also picked up Mom’s gift of a Super Potion from the mart. Okay… let’s do this JOEY YOU JUST BARELY CALLED ME OKAY GIVE IT A BREAK

 

Medium Georgina has a whopping five Gastly on her team. Wowzers! But each one goes down to a single Thundershock from Franklin. They don’t even get the chance to move! Poor little ghosties… :’p

 

The next medium offers a “hint” that’s basically rendered useless in the remake’s new layout. Ugh, confusion. It’s supposed to be a 50% chance to hurt yourself, but in practice it cripples me completely as my pokemon attack themselves turn after turn. Still, when Felix’s Bite goes through, it one-shots that Haunter!

 

Kenya sweeps the next two trainers with ease. Now it’s time to go back, heal up, and hope for the best. It’s time to face down Ecruteak’s seer… Morty!

 

BOSS: Gym Leader Morty

I have to say, Morty’s new redesign is swank, with his scarf. Anyway, he sends out Gastly lv. 21, and I counter with Felix lv. 23. Gastly tried to trap me with Mean Look but it’s irrelevant as Felix one-shots it with Bite.

 

Crap, he’s sending out Gengar, lv. 25. This pokemon makes me nervous. Here’s hoping my strategy works… Franklin, lv. 23! Thunder Wave! Hahah! Enjoy that paralysis, sucker! Now, Thunder! Thunder takes away a fair chunk of HP, but he heals with a Sitrus Berry and puts me to sleep with Hypnosis. Hmm, to heal or to switch? Franklin hasn’t taken any damage… I’ll use a Chesto Berry.

 

Mwahaha! I healed up the sleep and he wasted a turn with Sucker Punch! One more Thunder should take him down… accuracy, don’t fail me now! Gah! It misses, and Gengar traps me with Mean Look. I’m worried about how much damage a Shadow Ball will do… c’mon, hit!

 

Success! Franklin’s Thunder hits and takes down Gengar. It never got a single chance to use that Shadow Ball! Next up is Haunter, lv. 21. Switching back to Felix. Haunter uses Curse, ensuring I’ll take it out with another Bite.

 

Next up is his final Haunter, lv. 23. I switch to Kenya, lv. 23. Her Normal type resists Ghost and she pwns him with Aerial Ace!

 

And with that, Morty is down and the Fog Badge and Shadow Ball TM are ours! However, we mustn’t get too excited. Though we succeeded against him, we still lost valued comrades in Thomas and Leon. Now that we have four badges, we’ll continue our journey next time. Goodbye, my friends...

Current Teammates: Felix (Croconaw), Carmen (Raticate), Franklin (Flaaffy), Victoire (Geodude), Kenya (Fearow), Aaron (Kadabra)
