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.

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.

Mt. Silver

It’s time. I’ve leveled up every pokemon to lv. 78, which I hope should be enough to stand against Red and his ridiculously high-leveled pokemon. If you want info like movesets, hold items, or stats, check the previous entry, where I give all the team’s info in detail. Now, with a bag full of items and apprehension in our hearts, it’s time… to ascend.

 

Mt. Silver Cave

I pick up an Expert Belt in a nearby cavern (I think the team’s already good in terms of hold items) and begin the climb.

 

Using Rock Climb, we head further and further up the mountain, eventually reaching an area where snow covers the peak. And at the summit…

 

He’s here. The ultimate trainer.

 

Let’s do this.

 

BOSS: Pokemon Trainer Red

Red leads with Pikachu, lv. 88 (!!). I send out Jacob, who is lv. 78 just like the rest of my team. First turn, before I do anything, let’s use Stealth Rock. That should give Charizard and Lapras something to chew on. (;

 

It goes off well enough, but Iron Tail coupled with the hail more than halves my HP. I start dropping Max Potions every turn, waiting for Iron Tail to miss so that I can unleash an Earthquake. It takes way longer than it should (by the time Pikachu finally misses, hail has shaved off over half of its HP!) but Iron Tail finally misses and I get Jacob to full. With the hail damage underway already, this should be a snap! Earthquake!

 

Iron Tail miraculously misses a second time, so Pikachu gets knocked out while leaving Jacob at full HP. Nice!

 

Red’s switching in Lapras, lv. 80. I send in Randall. Lapras takes a weighty hit from Stealth Rock. I use Thunder Wave on the first turn and immediately get rewarded as Lapras wastes a turn in paralysis. The next turn Thunderbolt gets lucky and knocks it out in one go. Yes!

 

Red’s next switch-in is Charizard, lv. 84. Stealth Rock eats away half of his health and Noelle’s Intimidate lowers its attack. This thing’s nice and neutered; time to take it out. It gets off an Air Slash but Waterfall pulls through and KOs.

 

Next up is Venusaur, also lv. 84. Go, Kenya! Drill Peck very nearly knocks it out on the first turn. It returns fire with Sleep Powder but misses. I eat away a lot of HP with Drill Peck the same turn Red heals and outspeed Venusaur the next one to KO it without too much trouble.

 

Next up is Snorlax lv. 82. Hmm, this one could be trouble. Let’s send out Randall again. On the first turn I paralyze once more with Thunder Wave and Snorlax uses Blizzard, for some reason. I think I resist all of his moves, but wouldn’t a STAB Body Slam be better?

 

He switches to spamming Crunch while I whittle away his HP with Flash Cannon. Annoyingly, Crunch manages to lower my defense. I heal up and then drop an X Defend the same turn Red uses a Full Restore on Snorlax.

 

Thunder Wave again and then it’s back to a war of attrition. You know, it would be nice for paralysis to actually kick in once or twice. Just saying.

 

I switch to Thunderbolt (I’d been using Flash Cannon to try for the Sp. Defense drop, but it just wasn’t worth it over Thunderbolt’s Magnet-boosted damage) and though Red heals a few more times, I pull through while barely keeping Randall alive.

 

His final pokemon is Blastoise, lv. 84. I switch in to Sofia. “Wait!” I can hear you say. “But Randall has STAB Thunderbolt!” That he does. And Blastoise has Focus Blast. No thank you, sir. Sofia resists every one of Blastoise’s moves and can hit him with Thunderbolts of her own.

 

And it goes off without a hitch. Sofia’s Thunderbolt deals over half damage the first turn, and Blastoise misses with Focus Blast. The next turn she brings the turtle down, and Red along with him.

 

And… that’s it. We’ve done it. I’ve defeated Red… I’ve successfully nuzlocked SoulSilver… and without losing a single pokemon in the final battle. Noelle, Sofia… Jacob and Randall… Vivian and Kenya, thank you. We’ve finally done it!

 

But we can’t forget our fallen pokemon. Hamilton, Leon, Thomas… poor Emilia, and the twin Gravelers, Victoire and Autumn. Losing Franklin and Felix was probably our darkest hour, and even in Kanto, we lost friends like Laika and Aaron too. This victory was for them

 

Well, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but we’re done. I’ve overcome the game’s final challenge and my nuzlocke run is completed. I know the rules might have been a little vanilla, but I hope you enjoyed it nonetheless. I sure did.

 

                                         

Thanks everyone, and take care.

Holy shit, guys. Months gone. Months. But the long haul of nightmarish grinding is finally over. Tomorrow we face Red.

 

Before we ascend Mt. Silver and face what is sure to be the greatest challenge within our adventure, it’s time to admit that despite my best efforts, some members of my team are almost sure to fall in the coming battle. So it’s best to reflect on each of our teammates thus far. I’ve included all relevant battle information, including their stats, moves, and hold items. I’ve also included final snippets on their personalities, for those who care.

 

MAIN TEAM

Dee’s combat team. Each of them is lv. 78 (now do you see why it took me so long?!) and will have a role to play in the coming battle against Red. Some have been with us a long time—Kenya was at least part of the buffer team and used semi-regularly since before Whitney. Others, like Vivian and Sofia, are relatively new additions. Still, all are strong pokemon who are sure to prove their power in the coming battle.

 

KENYA

Species: Fearow, lv. 78 (NRM/FLY) w/Muscle Band

Nature: Hasty, “proud of its power.”

Met:A gift from the gatekeeper in Goldenrod

Current Moves: Fly, Return, Drill Peck, Steel Wing

Stats: 207 HP, 189 Attack, 117 Defense, 128 Special Attack, 122 Special Defense, 227 Speed

 

Of all the pokemon currently in the party, Kenya has been with Dee the longest. In her time, she has polished her already proficient combat skills into a fine sheen. Her awkward personality has matured as she has; she is quiet and reserved, but is more confident in talking to other pokemon.

 

She believes her miserable early life shuttling letters between Goldenrod and Violet was responsible for making her the powerful pokemon she is today; however, she is slightly envious of pokemon she believes to be more fortunate than herself, particularly Vivian’s childhood spent in the Dragon’s Den. Still, she bonded with Noelle over their mutual rough experiences, and gets along well with Jacob. For her long history with Dee, she is held to be the “elder stateswoman” of the group, though Noelle and Jacob still lead. She has smoothed over her initial poor estimate of Sofia, though they’re not the best of friends.

 

 

NOELLE

Species: Gyarados, lv. 78 (shiny) (WTR/FLY) w/Wacan Berry

Nature: Lonely, “often lost in thought.”

Met: Encountered in the Lake of Rage

Current Moves: Waterfall, Dragon Dance, Ice Fang, Bite

Stats: 257 HP, 255 Attack, 155 Defense, 123 Special Attack, 168 Special Defense, 150 Speed

 

Noelle is the leader of the pokemon. She was initially confused and withdrawn after her forced evolution, but being added to the party and fighting against Clair after the disastrous deaths of Franklin and Felix forced her to shoulder the burden and keep the party together.

 

Noelle is actually quite emotional, grieving deeply over the deaths of comrades like Franklin and Felix as well as Aaron and especially her friend Laika, but as a leader she strives to keep any signs of weakness private and present a strong front to unify the team.

 

She and Vivian share a mutual respect for each other—both are female draconic pokemon, and are probably the most powerful members of Dee’s team—and she also considers Kenya a confidant of sorts. She finds Sofia to be a bit obnoxious, but values her as a powerful teammate nonetheless.

 

 

RANDALL

Species: Magneton, lv. 78 (ELE/STL) w/Magnet

Nature: Bashful, “often scatters things.”

Met: Encountered in the grass near Moomoo Farm.

Current Moves: Thunderbolt, Flash Cannon, Thunder Wave, Flash

Stats: 194 HP, 122 Attack, 175 Defense, 206 Special Attack, 168 Special Defense, 131 Speed

 

Randall is a living construct and is thus genderless (he accepts the masculine pronoun for convenience.) However, despite being “artificial” rather than organic life, he has a vibrant personality. Randall is extremely brainy. His computerized brain can tap into large caches of information, which he analyzes and computes to help benefit the team. He is extremely introverted and likes to keep to himself, but Sofia’s boundless exuberance has proven remarkably effective at drawing him out of his shell. The two of them are very close friends.

 

Randall is bashful and easily offended, but he has made an effort to not let it get to him. He has gradually grown thicker skin (metaphorically; his defense is the highest in the party) and can now fire back at the gruff Jacob just as easily as he can take it. Still, if another pokemon gets under his skin, he can and will go off to sulk for a bit.

 

 

 

JACOB

Species: Nidoking, lv. 78 (PSN/GRD) w/Black Sludge

Nature: Bashful, “mischievous.”

Met: Appeared in the Safari Zone.

Current Moves: Sludge Bomb, Rock Climb, Stealth Rock, Earthquake

Stats: 233 HP, 195 Attack, 157 Defense, 171 Special Attack, 139 Special Defense, 179 Speed

 

Jacob is Noelle’s second-in-command. His willingness to speak his mind and offer opposing viewpoints makes him a valuable asset to the team, even if it does leave him and the prideful Sofia at major odds.

 

Jacob values power above all else, a mindset perhaps born from a “law of the jungle” upbringing in the Safari Zone. However, he has gradually mellowed out and respects the others for their other traits, admiring Randall for his intelligence and Vivian for her ability to always stay cool. Still, he personally takes the most pride in crushing Lance, and he and Kenya are close for their strength-based philosophies.

 

He has gotten over Aaron’s death and is now determined to bring down Red and prove himself the strongest for the sake of Aaron’s memory.

 

 

VIVIAN

Species: Dragonite, lv.78 (DRG/FLY) w/Leftovers

Nature: Relaxed, “likes to fight.”

Met: Given by the master of the Dragon clan.

Current Moves: Dragon Claw, Extremespeed, Flamethrower, Focus Blast

Stats: 262 HP, 254 Attack, 183 Defense, 192 Special Attack, 175 Special Defense, 128 Speed

 

Tied with Noelle as the strongest team member and with the highest all-around stats, Vivian knew she was destined for greatness from an early age, as she was born into the same family of dragons that serves the likes of Lance and Clair. Ever since joining the team, she has been committed to proving her power.

 

Vivian keeps to herself, letting Noelle lead the team and following the water serpent’s lead. She believes that actions speak louder than words and chooses to let her actions on the battlefield speak for her, which is good as she sometimes finds it hard to articulate her feelings. When she is not in combat, she loves relaxing and enjoying her well-deserved leisure time.

 

She and Noelle share a strong mutual respect for one another. She also gets along well with Sofia, as the two of them joined at the same time and trained together.

 

 

SOFIA

Species: Starmie, lv. 78 (WTR/PSY) w/Wise Glasses

Nature: Rash, “proud of its power.”

Met: Met in the waters of Route 47.

Current Moves: Surf, Blizzard. Psychic, Thunderbolt

Stats: 223 HP, 168 Attack, 171 Defense, 195 Special Attack, 134 Special Defense, 216 Speed

 

Sofia (who considers herself female) is the most recent member of the team, joining to fill the role of designated Psychic type after Aaron died. She is easily-offended, though she has made an effort to curb that lately, which has earned her the respect of Kenya. Noelle still holds her at a distance, though, and the brusque Jacob can still get under her skin; the two of them are constantly at odds.

 

Still, she has close ties with Vivian, and her exuberance is effective at drawing Randall out of his shell. Surprisingly child-like at times, Sofia is filled with boundless energy and can often be found scouting out the next adventure. Like all members of the party she prides herself on her combat prowess, and she particularly can’t wait to prove herself against the mighty Red.

 

 

BUFFER TEAM

Filled mainly with HM users and pokemon that were phased out of the main party, the members of the buffer team may not be the strongest, but they’re just as steadfast and loyal as the rest.

 

CARMEN

Species: Raticate, lv. 27

Nature: Hardy, “loves to eat.”

Met: Caught on Route 46.

Current Moves: Strength, Dig, Sucker Punch, Rock Smash

 

With Felix dead, Carmen is Dee’s oldest team member. Switched out of the team after being outclassed by Kenya and Laika, Carmen has finally moved on from Felix’s death and admitted that yes, she did have feelings for him. She bears no ill will to Dee for being switched out of the party and provides emotional support to the boxed pokemon. She desperately hopes she won’t have to see another friend die in the battle against Red.

 

 

LIZZIE

Species: Beedrill, lv. 10

Nature: Lonely, “often scatters things.”

Met: Found north of Cherrygrove.

Current Moves: Poison Sting, Cut, Rock Smash, Flash

 

The HM queen and leader of the boxed pokemon, Lizzie has matured greatly and is no longer bitter and temperamental. She provides solid leadership to the boxed pokemon and often gives them news of the greater adventure. She is organizing a victory party for the main team to celebrate what she feels is an inevitable victory over Red.

 

 

TREVOR

Species: Shellder, lv. 26

Nature: Naughty, “capable of taking hits.”

Met: Fished up on Route 41.

Current Moves: Icicle Spear, Whirlpool, Blizzard, Surf

 

Trevor is a goofball who was once considered a shoe-in for the main party. Though he was cast aside, he bears no ill will. When he’s not pestering other pokemon with well-natured pranks, Trevor can be found quietly reminiscing about fallen friends such as Felix and Laika.

 

 

GEOFF

Species: Tentacool, lv. 13

Nature: Timid, “good endurance.”

Met: Met on Route 40.

Current Moves: Surf, Whirlpool, Supersonic, Wrap

 

Used to Surf and cross Whirlpools, Geoff is a total fanboy of the main party and often boasts to the other pokemon of amazing exploits he undertook with them. (Most, if not all, of these exploits never happened.) He has a hopeless crush on Noelle and is trying to work up the nerve to ask her out.

 

 

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

 

Vladimir is an enigma—a truly powerful pokemon who was caught very late. He was held in reserve in case Dee lost a fighter against Blaine or Blue, but thankfully this didn’t happen. His opinions are a mystery, but he appears to hold Jacob and Randall, the two pokemon that withstood him, in high esteem.

 

FALLEN POKEMON

Friends and compatriots who have died. At the foot of this hallowed mountain, we honor their memory.

 

HAMILTON

Species: Ditto

Nature: Impish, “capable of taking hits.”

Met: Encountered just south of Goldenrod City.

Death: Attacked by a Kadabra.

 

Hamilton was the first casualty in this adventure, and was slain not long after joining the party. He was thought to be lucky as he came holding a Quick Powder, but this proved to be the opposite of the case.

 

LEON

Species: Espeon

Nature: Timid, “highly persistent.”

Met: A gift from Bill.

Death: Slain by a wild Stantler.

 

This eager, exuberant pokemon was cut down in his prime before he could truly have a chance to shine.

 

 

THOMAS

Species: Slowpoke

Nature: Rash, “hates to lose.”

Met: Rescued from Team Rocket in the Slowpoke Well.

Death: Fell to a Charmeleon in Burned Tower.

 

The first main party pokemon to die, Thomas’s death served as a wake-up call that warned the other main pokemon that they were not invincible. Thomas was laid-back but competitive in battle.

 

 

EMILIA

Species: Gastly

Nature: Hardy, “often dozes off.”

Met: Appeared within the Sprout Tower.

Death: Slain by a Kangaskhan.

 

This ghost was shy, but very sweet. She was a great help in catching pokemon and was widely liked, being particularly good friends with Carmen.

 

 

VICTOIRE

Species: Graveler

Nature: Calm, “quick to flee.”

Met: Caught in Union Cave.

Death: Killed by Executive Archer’s Houndoom.

 

Three badges separated Victoire from the most recent death, and the party had been growing complacent. Her death heralded the coming deaths of three more pokemon. Victoire and Franklin were good friends.

 

 

AUTUMN

Species: Graveler

Nature: Docile, “highly curious.”

Met: Encountered on Route 45.

Death: Slain by a fellow Graveler.

 

Little is known about Autumn, who was killed in the very route she was captured on.

 

 

FRANKLIN

Species: Ampharos

Nature: Serious, “capable of taking hits.”

Met: Caught on south of Violet.

Death: Clair’s Kingdra got a critical hit Hyper Beam.

 

The former team leader. Franklin was characterized by his aloof attitude and his intense rivalry with Felix. The two of them constantly butted heads where to take the party, which left a huge void when both of them were killed in the battle against Clair.

 

 

FELIX

Species: Feraligatr

Nature: Docile, “capable of taking hits.”

Met: A starter pokemon received from Professor Elm.

Death: Took another critical hit from Clair’s Kingdra.

 

Felix was Dee’s starter pokemon but not the leader, a fact which left him furious. He constantly clashed with Franklin but otherwise got along with the rest of the party, particularly Carmen. He was torn to see his rival killed, but rushing in to avenge him was his downfall. Felix’s last words were spent regretting the wasted time he had spent hating Franklin: “You mean all this time, we could have been… friends?”

 

 

LAIKA

Species: Stantler

Nature: Naughty, “somewhat of a clown.”

Met: Found just south of Ecruteak.

Death: Killed by Sabrina’s Alakazam.

 

Laika was the team mom of sorts, a position embraced even further after Carmen was demoted to buffer status. She always tried to keep everyone in a good mood, and her efforts were responsible for holding the team together after the disastrous battle against Clair, as well as encouraging Noelle to become the team leader. As she took an attack that was guaranteed to kill at least one member of the team, she is remembered with particular reverence.

 

 

AARON

Species: Kadabra

Nature: Gentle, “likes to fight.”

Met: Purchased as a Game Corner prize.

Death: Took a Koffing’s Explosion.

 

This city boy was polite and gentlemanly, but secretly racked by inner turmoil over a number of issues, particularly the deaths of Franklin and Felix, which he felt partially responsible for. Even after forming a loving partnership with Jacob, the guilt continue to eat at him, and he sacrificed himself to protect the then-underleveled Vivian from a kamikaze Koffing.

Pallet Town

Oak has called us in to pass of the Rock Climb HM. And he’s opened the way to Mt. Silver! Excellent! As for my Pokemon, Jacob is the only one that can learn Rock Climb. Sigh… what a shitty, terrible move. Oh well. I teach it to him in lieu of Avalanche, as that’s not strong against any of Red’s pokemon except Venusaur—and I’ve got Vivian and Kenya for that!

 

I could head straight to Mt. Silver, but there’s still a lot for me to do, especially now that I have Rock Climb. First off…

 

Cerulean City

I’m on the watery part of town, having Surfed here from Route 24. I have an encounter—Seaking! Annnnnd I KO it accidentally. Okay. But the real attraction is the nearby cave that’s opened up now that I have all 16 badges.

 

Cerulean Cave

Hey, I have a new encounter here as well! She’s a Persian. I name her Sayyadina. “Rash nature. Likes to thrash about.”

 

Other than that, there’s not much to say other than OH BOY THIS IS A GREAT BIG MAZE AND I SURE DO LOVE GREAT BIG MAZES YES SIRREE BOB

 

After finding all manner of goodies, including a Thunderbolt TM and some Black Sludge (putting that right on Jacob) we run into our opponent…

 

BOSS: Mewtwo

He’s lv. 70. Go, Randall lv. 60!

 

I bring Paralysis to him using Thunder Wave while he wastes a turn on Power Swap. Then Flash Cannon crits and brings him down to half HP while he’s paralyzed. Two more Flash Cannons bring him down while he fails to even damage me. How… anticlimactic.

 

Now, to places in need of Rock Climb!

 

Cinnabar Island

Yep, here first. I pick up some stuff including a Rare Candy. Next up…

 

Diglett’s Cave

Don’t think I forgot about this place. I snag a Calcium here.

 

Rock Tunnel

Down some passages for some more goodies. Now off to Johto.

 

Glimmer Lighthouse

I pick up a Rare Candy right outside the Lighthouse.

 

Route  46

And a PP Max here.

 

Mt. Mortar

I pick up Full Incense and a Nugget here, as well as a Dubious Disc outside.

 

Route 36

Lastly, I pick up a Lax Incense here. I’m sure there’s more elsewhere, but I really can’t be bothered at the moment. Now, onward to Mt. Silver!

 

Route 22

Another first encounter here, but should I really bother at this point? It’s a Rattata, I name him Gil. “Gentle nature. Proud of its power.” After heading through Victory Road Gate, we come across the final route in the game.

 

Route 28

Our encounter for the area is a Tangela, but I overestimate how much she could take and end up knocking herout with Thunderbolt, even though she resisted it. Well, no great loss. I pick up the Steel Wing and Flamethrower TMs as well as a Rare Candy, and then…

 

Mt. Silver

In the grass outside the mountain, we find… another Tangela. Well, all right then. I’m naming her Frederica. “Quirky nature. Mischievous.” The cavern itself bears a different name, so...

 

Mt. Silver Cave

Our last encounter for the game is here. Ready?

 

He’s an Ursaring. Hasty, “Proud of its power.” I name him Shane.

 

We're finally here. Next time, we’ll ascend the mountain to face our ultimate challenge—but not before undergoing some crazy level grinding.

 

I’ll see you then.

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

Mt. Silver

It’s time. I’ve leveled up every pokemon to lv. 78, which I hope should be enough to stand against Red and his ridiculously high-leveled pokemon. If you want info like movesets, hold items, or stats, check the previous entry, where I give all the team’s info in detail. Now, with a bag full of items and apprehension in our hearts, it’s time… to ascend.

 

Mt. Silver Cave

I pick up an Expert Belt in a nearby cavern (I think the team’s already good in terms of hold items) and begin the climb.

 

Using Rock Climb, we head further and further up the mountain, eventually reaching an area where snow covers the peak. And at the summit…

 

He’s here. The ultimate trainer.

 

Let’s do this.

 

BOSS: Pokemon Trainer Red

Red leads with Pikachu, lv. 88 (!!). I send out Jacob, who is lv. 78 just like the rest of my team. First turn, before I do anything, let’s use Stealth Rock. That should give Charizard and Lapras something to chew on. (;

 

It goes off well enough, but Iron Tail coupled with the hail more than halves my HP. I start dropping Max Potions every turn, waiting for Iron Tail to miss so that I can unleash an Earthquake. It takes way longer than it should (by the time Pikachu finally misses, hail has shaved off over half of its HP!) but Iron Tail finally misses and I get Jacob to full. With the hail damage underway already, this should be a snap! Earthquake!

 

Iron Tail miraculously misses a second time, so Pikachu gets knocked out while leaving Jacob at full HP. Nice!

 

Red’s switching in Lapras, lv. 80. I send in Randall. Lapras takes a weighty hit from Stealth Rock. I use Thunder Wave on the first turn and immediately get rewarded as Lapras wastes a turn in paralysis. The next turn Thunderbolt gets lucky and knocks it out in one go. Yes!

 

Red’s next switch-in is Charizard, lv. 84. Stealth Rock eats away half of his health and Noelle’s Intimidate lowers its attack. This thing’s nice and neutered; time to take it out. It gets off an Air Slash but Waterfall pulls through and KOs.

 

Next up is Venusaur, also lv. 84. Go, Kenya! Drill Peck very nearly knocks it out on the first turn. It returns fire with Sleep Powder but misses. I eat away a lot of HP with Drill Peck the same turn Red heals and outspeed Venusaur the next one to KO it without too much trouble.

 

Next up is Snorlax lv. 82. Hmm, this one could be trouble. Let’s send out Randall again. On the first turn I paralyze once more with Thunder Wave and Snorlax uses Blizzard, for some reason. I think I resist all of his moves, but wouldn’t a STAB Body Slam be better?

 

He switches to spamming Crunch while I whittle away his HP with Flash Cannon. Annoyingly, Crunch manages to lower my defense. I heal up and then drop an X Defend the same turn Red uses a Full Restore on Snorlax.

 

Thunder Wave again and then it’s back to a war of attrition. You know, it would be nice for paralysis to actually kick in once or twice. Just saying.

 

I switch to Thunderbolt (I’d been using Flash Cannon to try for the Sp. Defense drop, but it just wasn’t worth it over Thunderbolt’s Magnet-boosted damage) and though Red heals a few more times, I pull through while barely keeping Randall alive.

 

His final pokemon is Blastoise, lv. 84. I switch in to Sofia. “Wait!” I can hear you say. “But Randall has STAB Thunderbolt!” That he does. And Blastoise has Focus Blast. No thank you, sir. Sofia resists every one of Blastoise’s moves and can hit him with Thunderbolts of her own.

 

And it goes off without a hitch. Sofia’s Thunderbolt deals over half damage the first turn, and Blastoise misses with Focus Blast. The next turn she brings the turtle down, and Red along with him.

 

And… that’s it. We’ve done it. I’ve defeated Red… I’ve successfully nuzlocked SoulSilver… and without losing a single pokemon in the final battle. Noelle, Sofia… Jacob and Randall… Vivian and Kenya, thank you. We’ve finally done it!

 

But we can’t forget our fallen pokemon. Hamilton, Leon, Thomas… poor Emilia, and the twin Gravelers, Victoire and Autumn. Losing Franklin and Felix was probably our darkest hour, and even in Kanto, we lost friends like Laika and Aaron too. This victory was for them

 

Well, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but we’re done. I’ve overcome the game’s final challenge and my nuzlocke run is completed. I know the rules might have been a little vanilla, but I hope you enjoyed it nonetheless. I sure did.

 

                                         

Thanks everyone, and take care.
