So I'm in a nostalgic mood and want to emulate some FireRed, but as it turns out that was kind of boring. You guys always liven things up, so anyone up for rolling a random nuzlocke?
I randomized almost everything - starters, abilities, learnsets, stats, TMs, wild pokemon, found items, trainer pokemon - but I kept the pokemon typing the same to preserve my sanity. The moves they learn will be random but it's more likely they will learn one of their same type. I threw in a couple more neat things: impossible evolutions (like trade or daytime/night) are removed and replaced with obtainable stones or just level ups. Trainers and gyms will be type themed, and all pokemon start out with 4 moves.
Standard nuzlocke rules apply, but I want to throw a twist in:
> A pokemon faints that means it's dead, deposit it forever
> Only catch one pokemon per area
> but YOU get to choose which pokemon I catch in each area. I'll scout it out and report back with which pokemon are there, and winner picks which one I attempt to catch.
tl;dr play me a random nuclocke
Doubles or an even number gets to pick girl or boy, let's get this going!
Fair is fair, I like that. That's what I get for getting impatient.
Who's my rival? dubs or any number greater than 5 names him
Unfortunately, asscunt would have worked... in a bit I'll check out what my starters are, hold tight /vp/
Here are the choices!
Dubs, 5, or 0 gets to pick which one.
(and remember trade evolutions were removed so we CAN get kingdra)
dubs, 1 or 9 gets to name her
>>20770019 your persistence paid off I see
Good moveset so far and HA rival got the type disadvantage for once. I will do Oak's BS errand and scout for the pokemon ahead, back soon
here's our new horsie (thanks anon)
>>20770097 oooh yeah, dat crabhammer... probably gonna need it tho since it seems special defense is her strong suit here. And color change? This will be interesting
>>20770064 and yeah, much like a nuzlocke in general, we gotta take the good with the bad, all part of the fun. Heck ALL the names so far have been retarded (no offense to the anons who named them, of course)
OP's here again, while I dick around in route one, what do you think, should I catch a pokemon there? It's always been a contested thing, some people say "sure, you can go back to route 1 and catch something, since the first one you saw was impossible to get because you didn't have any pokeballs" but some people say "no, nuzlocke rules are the first pokemon you see period, you can't go back and get one"
So until I come back majority rules, can I get a pokemon on Route 1?
Just minding my own business delivering Oak's Parcel and horsea here wants to learn a new move! So, should she learn water spout?
dubs or any number less than 5 gets to pick yes or no.
Eh, I was thinking about it and I'm sure a lot of people do already? I don't have a twitch or anything so I'm probably not the best one for the job anyways. But it also eliminates some of the randomness and faggotry that gets thrown around here, honestly I'm laughing about the water spout, no hard feelings! Plus I wouldn't want it to be too easy now (I suppose)
A'ight, I'm really glad you are all enjoying it! Not today though, but maybe the next nuzlocke run I do I'll try to livestream it or whatever... Honestly I've never done something like that so I'd have to figure it all out first.
Now back to the game! Most of you said to catch something on route 1, so here are your options!
I'm not gonna tell you their abilities to make this more fun but I will tell you I know at least one of them... huehuehue
So which one am I going to try and catch, anons? Dubs, 3, or 7 is winrar
>>20770607 Winner! I must have run into 5 swamperts before I got to this one, yikes...
And I am SO HAPPY that's who you picked because guess what... Swampert's ability was TRUANT, so you guys are all winners to me.
Let's be a little different, next post gets to name her, do your best (or worst) /vp/
Presenting Lisa the Gligar, good choice anon
Okay, now what, /vp/?
I could do a few things from here:
> Go to Route 2 and try to grab a pokemon
> Go to Route 22 (that little piece you can get to before victory road) and nab a pokemon or trigger the rival battle
> Grind some
> Go straight to Viridian Forest
> or whatever
dubs, 2, or 4 decides what I do next
Okay! You guys are getting too fast for me, whew! Dubs everywhere.
Lisa is still level 4 so give me a little bit, while I train up decide which Pokemon to go for on route 22.
Dubs or 8 picks, have at it everyone
Man that was fast. Dugtrio it is!
Next decision... I know what I would do, but what will /vp/ do?
dubs or numero uno let me know, will Lisa learn air cutter? If yes, what move gets replaced?
Off to route 22 to grind and catch dugtrio, if anyone can figure out how to get the random seed from an already-created randomized run give a holler - I was NOT expecting this to take off, I am so sorry anons ;_;
>>20770989 Oh wait I just realized the .sgm is the savegame I think. I'll drop the .gba on megaupload or something so whoever wants it can download it and play it on their emulator. I think that should work?
Anyways back to the game: Dugtrio get!
Dubs, 0 or 9 names her (all so far, wow, must have something to do with my name?)
>>20771055 We have a winner!
/vp/ meet 3 Hitlers, 3 Hitlers, /vp/. Heck she came with a great ball so it can't be so bad, right?
Okay, what's next? see list at >>20770760 for suggestions, dubs (as always), 4, or 5 chooses, GO
PS >>20771068 Okay, my randomized .gba is uploading to megaupload but it keeps failing, does /vp/ like another hosting site?
>>20771232 Working on it, megaupload is being a faggot
Also >>20771234 Winner! Off to smoke Jews, brb.
Where next /vp/?
Dubs, 2, or 8 decides my fate
Okay, you guys were off by one every time and that seems to be the consensus so I'll off to route 2 and make Hitler more powerful along the way! Hold up for pokemon selections, OP will deliver soon.
On a related note, dammit (pic related)
Why did you randomize the movesets, stats, and abilities, but not the typeings, OP? Still enjoying the run, mind, but it seems like an odd thing to arbitrarily not randomize.
It wasn't too arbitrary honestly, I've done runs where I've randomized EVERYTHING and to me it just gets too much of a hassle to remember everything. Just my selfish preference I guess, also I thought it would make it a little easire for anons to jump in mid-way if they don't have to fiddle with trying to find the profile of each pokemon and remember its type and whatnot
>>20771232 for you especially, but also for everyone else who asked
Hey all! Megaupload stopped shitting out on me, come download the randomization I'm playing with if you want.
Here are the available pokes on Route 2, now this is more like a starting route you'd find at the beginning of a game.
dubs, 1, or 7 chooses who I try to capture. I will continue to grind 3 hitlers until we get a winner.
Also I took those pictures earlier in the game, Lisa is no longer level 5! Pic related is the current team
Hoppip get! Dubs, 0, or 2 gets to name her. Aw yeah I'm pimping out with all my bitches.
You know, maybe it's a good thing that anon didn't let me replace water gun with water spout. I don't know if I could have caught hoppip at lvl 2 otherwise.
>>20771582 your win is my command
Okay, here we are with Hitler's new officer apparently.
Now what? Dubs or 7-8-9 decides.
We still have
> Rival battle
> Viridian Forest
> Whatever else
But hey we're gonna fight a TRAINER soon probably! It'll get a lot more exciting soon I bet!
Current team is >>20771505 plus pic related level 2 hoppip
Have at it, dubs or 7-8-9
>>20771803 Up to 9 we go
I'm already halfway there and Hoppip needs to learn another attack! Will she and what will she forget? Tell me anons, 4-5-6 or dubs = winrar
>>20771873 haha yeah, but I don't care too much about pronouns really.
I'm getting impatient again so it seems the consensus is to not learn pay day, and I'm all right with that.
Gettin' to 9, next dubs or odd number tell me who leads for the rival battle
HAHAHA Okay, also that's a fantastic name. Sorry previous anon, but I will take your suggestion into consideration and if someone has to die it'll be Salade.
Also thank you anon! >>20771893
This is the first one of these I ever did so I'm really glad people are liking it!
Let me see if I've got this straight:
/mlp/ the starter female Horsea
Lisa the female Gligar
3 Hitlers the female Dugtrio (aka the Dugctator), Salade the female Hoppip
We are qtgrill the boy and our rival is Name it
Also, since it's the first one of these I've done (what is this type of thing even called?) I don't really know how I should do battles - Would having you all pick every move be really tedious and not fun? Or in the spirit of the game should I let you decide everything, or just battle to the best of my ability and post updates?
Thanks and please discuss while I grind for a little longer!
Okay, thanks! Whew, I'm glad that's what other people want. Will do. In the meantime, here's a team update before the first rival battle! Since base stats are randomized I figured you might want to see where everyone is at. Moves are the same and can be found somewhere up there.
Off I go, stay tuned!
Hmmm, not a bad pokemon, and I don't have any ice or dragon attacks - aaaaaand it knows spore.
BUT next turn it used dragon claw and 3 Hitlers got it with its poison point. I switched out because one more dragon claw would be death. Lisa finished it off with her bonemerang, then readily dealt with torchic.
Probably, Name it. Probably.
There really is only one thing more to do, and that is viridian forest! I'll let you know which pokemon are there soon because I already grabbed the screencaps while I was grinding there earlier.
Here are the options, dubs, 3, or 6 chooses who to get. I took it upon myself to buy more pokeballs, but if you guys have any other suggestions lay 'em on me.
Get rollin' /vp/!
(also remember I took these pics a while ago, Lisa's level 11 now)
While I do agree with >>20772307, >>20772303 is the winner so off we go for Mr. Mime!
But we interrupt this quest for a more pressing matter! Dear me, I can't seem to make a decision. Should 3 Hitlers learn this move? Dubs or 1, 3, or 5 picks if she learns it and what she forgets.
True to his name, finally a MISTER Mime. Next anon to answer gets to name him, then I go battle the "bug catcher" and see what pokemon he has!
So far it's been a pretty unexciting nuzloke - got all the pokemon I tried for, no one died yet... we'll see what happens!
Here's Marceau, the only male on our team...
>>20772744 Ohhhh yeah, I never even encountered it when I found the other Mr. Mimes, I was pretty surprised!
First trainer battle! Finally! We made it /vp/!
Huh I never noticed that the pokeball came from from its little graphic in the corner when the trainer sends it out. Neat
Joey must have silly names for his pokemon too.
/mlp/ got delibird with one OP crabhammer, then Joey sent out Jinx which was likewise taken care of. Both were one-hit KO's... I think I'll stop grinding for a while, because I am up for a little more excitement... (knock on wood)
This one is author Anne. he had two Ivysaurs which Marceau psychic'd until...
All right /vp/ you know the drill, dubs or an even number decides Marceau's fate with Muddy Water!
SHIT'S GOING DOWN NOW!
I beat Author Anne's last ekans no problem with one more psychic from Marceau. But this next bug catcher... er I mean Author Kimberly, is not fucking around!
>>20773047 No fairy type in gen 3!
But anyways it wasn't that hard really, since it was level 7 it didn't do much damage. I didn't do much damage to it likewise, but 3 Hitlers was able to finish it off. Flygon is next, currently battling
Flygon was a bit more difficult though, no one died but we did come close! 3 Hitlers was already paralyzed from Latias (static or something) but managed to poison flygon with poison point. I switched out and tried to get a grasswhistle in from Salade but she almost died from a flying attack whose name I forgot. So I switched to Lisa (because 3 Hitlers was also going to get it within two turns) and air cutter was able to finish flygon off with a critical hit.
Then this happened! Next reply decides - Will-o-wisp? Man I love randomization. Is anyone still hanging around?
Oh, hey guys! Neat! Okay, will do. Grasswhistly only has 55% accuracy so that's a good choice.
Next trainer that I didn't take a picture of had a zangoose, smeargle, and rattata. /mlp/ got them good with crabhammer. Will update you once I get to Pewter Gym!
Last trainer in Viridian forest had a regice, got him with a psychic, but then I got worried and didn't want to kill anyone so /mlp/ finished him off.
Pewter next, promise!
I just want to document everything in case something exciting happens like a critical hit or whatever so if something does happen you'll know!
so Pewter gem appears to be a normal type! I don't have any fighting or ghost but overall it shouldn't be too difficult.
Lickitung was easy, but here with furret giga drain backfired because of its ability Liquid Ooze! Salade is still fine though, no worries.
Brock the Normal-type trainer up next!
Lisa took care of his wigglytuff though... but still. darn. I almost wish it could have been someone else... We'll miss you, Salade!
Then Brock gave us the TM that was usually teaches rock tomb, but instead it had Agility.
And here Salade was buried ;_;
Well /vp/ I had fun tonight! Thanks for the company and when I have time I'll continue this run for sure.
Goodnight for now!
