a very work in progress sketch of my firered team to help get the ball rolling here. going to be heading into the e4 soon after some grinding. also porygon and kabutops are fucking assholes to draw when you're like me and have no idea what you're doing.
it is like me to completely forget the fucking picture
When's a good level to evolve Nidorina?
Just reached Slateport in my AS Nuzlocke. Here's the team so far.
I think I'm holding up decently well, only one death so far and that was due to Rollout's bullshit.
>my hand when drawing a nuzlocke comic
I posted a few sketches like two threads ago; shit's still in-progress. I was busy all weekend with
my girlfriendso I didn't have time to draw. But I oughta have the first chapter done by tomorrow night.
What's the rule about in game trades in a nuzlocke?
I'm thinking about trading with the Guy who trades you Mr. Mime for the Abra since I can't exactly trade Kadabra to get Alakazam.
I wouldn't mind streaming, though my connection is a bit spotty. Not sure what rom to play, I did Advanced Adventure yesterday but I lost at the E4 being overleveled and its not really fun to replay. Maybe spirit emerald / emerald omega or bullshit platinum
such a shock i know
thanks guys, it's a lot of fun to work on. I started with something different, but felt it took itself way too seriously and fell kind of flat, so I bailed and started over with a new beginning and a new tone. But I'm still hoping to do something I think will be fresh. Can't wait to share it witcha'll.
well good, because simon is the first one getting any linework done today.
It's too late.
RIP Hocus, I hardly knew ye.
Well I wasn't sure if I wanted to do a full run on this rom, but I guess that pretty much seals the deal.
just caught this new nica in my game
gonna hope for a dustox for brawly
didnt mean to reply to that, but new mon
my party, just got in rustburo city and about to level up my niggas
word it finally learned confusion
gonna get this badge then go to bed
dumb bitch shouldnt tried to test me
Spirit Emerald guy back here again, in Fallarbor now.
My team's getting better everytime I look at it.
Another teammate down, just when I was starting to like him.
Nuzlocke complete, with only two deaths total. I think I'll go for SoulSilver next.
Someone give me list of the mainline games in order of Nuzlocke Difficulty.
Assume challenge mode is on and EXP share is off.
I feel like starting at the easiest and moving on up as I clear them.
It's time for Surge.
I say Firered/Leafgreen is the easiest, I haven't had a serious death yet.
>mfw I can't start my Y Nuzlocke until January 1st because that's a cool date for the game to say I started playing
Is this autism?
I hadn't played it in 8 months acording to my little friends. Spend ages removing all the weeds fro mthe place and now I'm building up my village properly.
I wish you could dictate where the bastardsput their houses though.
So I beat Roark in BS Intense Platinium using my thick Club Cubone last night on my stream, but my internet was too shitty for it to actually stream. I'll try again.
Grinded Shaun to level 31 and then evolved it, going to enter Chuck's gym now.
Cheesecake the Quagsire
Jason the Quilava
Eugene the Kingler
Latifa the Nidoqueen
Whitney the Miltank (28)
Shaun the Ampharos (31)
Grabbed the Shuckle in Cianwood too. Good nature, probably won't use it though.
Welp time to take on Fantina
Easily took care of Jasmine, Quagsire hard counters her team. Now onto the gauntlet of Rockets
Should I challenge Erika or go attack the Rocket Hideout?
With Whitney's Milk Drink/Thick Fat combo, Pryce didn't even stand a chance. Now onto the gauntlet of Rockets in Goldenrod.
Latifa the Nidoqueen (30)
Whitney the Miltank
Grillados the Gyarados
Cheesecake the Quagsire
Jason the Quilava (31)
Shaun the Ampharos (33)
Wow, she was easier than I expected.
Might as well evolve this fucker
ITS TIME for maylene
Hopefully he'll be a good replacement for Tiny
Easier than I expected, surprised that his Koffings didn't use self destruct
Time to infiltrate this motherfucker.
>should've worked on nuzlocke comic
>spent all day playing Omega Ruby instead
after the restrictions of Nuzlocke it suddenly feels so good to catch 'em all; I can't stop.
I, too, had my Primeape taken from me by my rival.
been nuzlocking ASaf currently at 6th gym.
got liloone, as an HM slave can still battle thou.
I use mainly butifly and Berloom as my main enforcers and a skamory has been staying in as my flyer butthe last two slots have had high turn over
Bumpin, about to fight Sabrina
I meant the romhack, i'm getting the urge to poke mans but i gave my sp away years ago, and i downloaded the zips for omemerald and some emerald but neither of them run, so i'm fairly certain i should ask someone what to do before i dun goof myself.
Is anyone actually interested or should I just stop posting this?
Well, its getting late on New Years, so seeya later. Might continue tomorrow.
Good place to grind before Clair? I'm thinking Quagsire could be safe by using Amnesia, but I want to be careful.
Good night, my little princess...
>>play sacred gold
>>on my way to mr pokemons house
N O B A L L S
considering it's basically garbage who's only good for flying and fire attacks, i see no reason not to. i mean it's a mad venusaur counter, so at least it can do something,
Since Serenity died
;_;7, I'm going to need a new permanent member for my team. Any suggestions? Assuming that this team survives to the elite 4.
I'd say Moltres or Ponyta. Moltres if you don't wanna do grinding, or Ponyta if you're not to keen on using legends. Also grinding isn't necessarily a problem in emulators because Frame Skip.
Welcome to hell
>Call Sailor Huey
>he wants a rematch
>he gives me Protein every time
>finished second page of my comic
it's taking an eternity but i'm damn proud of my work
I setup on her Gyarados and cleaned up with Strength and EQ. I only used Quagsire.
Without it you'll end up with a pc full of Geodude, Pidgey, and Rattata, AKA not using pokemon you wouldn't usually use
I personally consider the shitmons you are likely too stock up on as the thing that actually keeps you on limited resources
Most games have enough routes that you aren't really in any danger of running out, but you ARE in danger of running out of decent mons, no dupes basically lets you catch way more good mons in most games as most routes are the same shit mons that you already have and a few rare good ones that you get to keep huting for with a dupes clause
>>22390251 Has a point, and since, in theory you play nuzlockes for fun, it is a fine way to play.
It is a much lesser challenge as a result though.
Nuzlocking HeartGold. I have three Kanto badges and grinding is a total grind. Can someone confirm whether or not the Elite Four has their original teams before getting all the Kanto badges?
I just don't want to run in and get wiped because everyone's 10 levels above my strongest.
Doing a Grass Monotype in Sacred Gold, wish me luck.
It'll evolve to Leafeon, so it can count under certain rules.
And really if you're going to try a Grass nuzlocke in a game that's pretty heavily skewed against Grass types you probably need all the help you can get.
Trained and caught some mons, facing the Bell Tower right now. Overgrinding because why not.
Mission accomplished! Back to grinding and then gym.
I'd assume you just choose yourself whether you'd like them to count as your first encounter or if you'd rather not run into them.
That's what I assumed. I already kinda knew it'd be sorta scummy to just "not encounter" them over and over until one popped up that you wanted, but I wasn't sure if it was better to just avoid them all together and do normal grass encounters only, or what.
Well I finally did it. I have beaten the Champion!
Quick rundown of the Elite4 Experience
>Went with Ravana(Darmanitan), Steelix(Poseidon), Chi-You(Crobat), Chronos(Haryiama), Tsukuyomi(Milotic) and Susano'o(Spiritomb). All Lv53
>Elite 4 members were taken down with teamwork. No one down for the count. Faced Steven with a full team of 6
>Lost Susano'o to Claydol. Didn't remember Reflect up, and failed the KO.
>Lost Tsukuyomi to Armaldo. Armaldo endured Surf by the skin of his teeth and killed with X-Scissor. Tsukuyomi was already weakened by having defeated Cradily earlier. Guess I got a bit overconfident
>Mega-Metagross destroyer of worlds came in after Armaldo. Had Chi-You on the field (he cleaned Armaldo). Confuse Ray, managed to give Mega Metagross some damage but fell to a Zen headbutt.
>Sent out Ravana. Against my expectations, Mega Metagross was fucking faster but then I got HELLA FUCKING LUCKY and Mega Metagross missed the Giga Impact, allowing me to Flare Blitz its ass into oblivion. Had the attack hit, I'd probably have lost. (since Poseidon was already weak, and not him or Chronos had the firepower to take down Metagross with the HP it had left)
>ending scene. Fuck you Gamefreak for showing my old deceased bros in their most important battles. I didn't ask for these feels.
>Suddenly May battle out of nowhere. No matter, bitch stood no chance against my 3-man team
>As soon as the cutscenes ended, went unbox Tezcatlipoca. Gonna train it and some other guy (not gonna make a full team of 6 since I don't want to send back anyone when Rayquaza is forced on my team)
Delta Episode, go!
that was potentially the most intense fucking champion battle i've ever had. absolutely everything went according to plan, with simon the beedrill managing to flawlessly defeat both exeggutor and alakazam no fucking sweat. we lost netscape the porygon against torrent boosted blastoise, but we came out on top in the end with only 4 deaths total.
Just beat Falkner, his Pidgeotto gave me a bit of a headache, but nothing that Reflect and some potions couldn't resolve.
>just start my Pokemon Y Nuzlocke
>misspell a nickname on my first catch
there's a pair of beauty's over to the right of fuschia city that are great for money grinding. if you can somehow manage to get enough pokemon to get your hands on an amulet coin, it can get up to 5000 bucks a battle, so rev up that vs seeker.
thanks guys! it means a lot. my artistic talent isn't at all the best (my anatomy can be pretty wonky and/or inconsistent) but i'm glad you guys like it, and it's a ton of fun to draw. I loved Grodd, especially, with him being a literal angry-faced fluffball. Not sure when i'll have the next one (school starts again soon; man i tell ya i didn't go to college for none of this bogus "classes" shit, like what is this*) but hopefully it'll be soon.
It returns. New friend, Gastly. Thinking of turning on the "No Trade Evolutions" that is in Universal Randomiser. Is that allowed?
Challenge runs are always welcome here but we're mostly a nuzlocke group.
At the very least every challenge (besides survival*) that is normally undertook in these threads involves the permadeath rule.
*Survival runs usually allow for use of Revives found on the floor, which means that their permadeath is not enforced in the same way as a nuzlocke's
Everyone's favorite Nuzlocke loser is back for streaming today.
Should I go ahead with my usual bullshit platinum / FRE / sacred gold attempt, or maybe a randomizer?
either way I'll be at
I know its not necessary, but Gengar is one of my favourite ghosts. Also, I put Hoothoot in the PC box, because I have a flying type already and I prefer Zubat.
So, one of Falkner's trainers killed my Totodile with a crit. Goddamnit.
Violet City catch thanks to the Old Rod the guy gave me. Not gonna use it though.
Encounter for Union Cave. Favourite mon pre Gen4. Also, it evolves at level 30 thanks to "no trade evos" Beautiful.
Slowpoke Well capture. Water type to replace Dundee.
Welp. Rival's Bayleef critted with Razor Leaf. Great.
Also, beat Bugsy w/ Geodude.
Current team is Geodude, Zubat, Slowpoke, Mareep and Bellsprout.
I'm new to Nuzlockes, so forgive me if this is obvious, but what about the first pokemon encountered in the first area before you're given any pokeballs? Is the first route automatically unusable?
Goddamnit. Morty's Gengar straight up OHKO'd with Dream Eater. RIP buddy. He carried the team for most of the game so far.
Looks like this fella is going to have to carry the team now.
Are you kidding? The first battle and he just gets critted straight away.
Alright, you guys vote for my new 6th member, if any.
Pokémon I have that I wanna use:
Pinsir (bug catching contest buddy)
Pokémon I'd use but I have already that type
Easy win, time for another Rival fight
