Title: Kloud's Nuzlocke Run- Platinum [Completed]
Post by: Kloud on January 02, 2011, 01:47:45 pm
(http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j270/Vaati-Minish/nuzlockeRules.png)

These are the Nuzlocke rules. There are many more optional rules, but the gist is always the same. It is intended to make playing through the game more difficult. For those interested, a more in-depth description of the challenge can be found HERE (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Nuzlocke_Challenge).

I will be doing a Nuzlocke playthrough of Platinum, and I will be logging my progress here. There will be two posts beneath this- progress notes and journal (in which I will describe what has occurred, my progress, and my reactions to said events) and comics/drawings (part of my challenge will be adopting optional rule #3 from the image).

The rules I am following are below. If I break them, it will be considered a game over and I will be forced to restart.

1. Any Pokémon that faints is considered dead, and must be released.
2. I may only catch the first Pokémon encountered in each area, and none else. If the first Pokémon encountered faints or flees, there are no second chances (unless I run into a Pokemon I already own, in which case I am allowed to continue searching until I find one that I do not own. If I capture one I already own for whatever reason, however, I am not allowed to do this on that Route).
3. A black out/white out is a "game over," even if there are Pokémon left in the PC.
4. If something particularly horrible, wonderful, or otherwise provoking occurs, I must draw a reaction- be it comic or just an image. The image must be added within one week.
5. I must nickname all Pokemon I obtain.
6. I am not allowed to trade, unless it is with an in-game NPC.
7. I am not allowed to use the DayCare during my run.

These are the rules by which I must work. Watch me play. :D

Journal of Progress

Each entry will include a time and date next to the description. Writing in black will signify objective writing, and writing in teal will be my subjective writing (feelings and the like). Events that I need to draw for will be marked with a *, and those that I have drawn for (and posted the drawing) will be marked with a ☆.

1/2/11 (5:14 PM)- Started my adventure. Picked Turtwig as starter. Fought Rival. ☆Battle was strange as hell. His Chimchar just kept using Leer- it never even tried to attack. Needless to say, even though one of my Tackles missed, I won.☆ On my way to nickname Turtwig, I'll post another update sometime tonight.
         (10:28 PM)- Have been working steadily through the first parts of the game. Caught my first Pokemon- was a female Shinx. Not bad. I was kind of hoping for a Starly, but Nala is so cute, I can't help but adore her. Currently grinding to train them up a little- hoping to have each to level 10 before bed.
1/3/11 (2:12 PM)- Entered Jubilife, caught a Budew on Route 204. ☆Nearly lost Nala to poisoning due to Bud's Poison Point. Luckily, make it to Pokemon Center in time.☆ Also noticed that my caught Pokemon (Nala and Bud) seem to have perfect IVs in at least one stat.
          (4:43 PM)- Fought Rival again- Starly fought normal, ☆but Chimchar used Leer every move again. My first encounter on Route 203 was an Abra. The ball didn't hold it, and it Teleported away. I was enraged. xD☆
          (7:50 PM)- So I caught Kappa and Emily. Have been training all of them. ☆Kappa died in possibly the most fail way possible. Emily's brother saw Kappa help me capture her, and OHKO'd Kappa while I was training with a Low Kick Crit. I actually found this to be kind of funny, as Kappa was never really struck me as smart. Then Emily mauled her brother. What a dysfunctional family LOL☆
1/4/11 (3:33 PM)- A lot has happened since my last update, so I'll give you the short version. I caught Rocky, Zuzu, Wave, Frier and Patchy (in that order). Lots of grinding- no deaths. I'm up to the Eterna Gym, so I've completed everything before that (including the Oreburgh Gym, a few Galactic battles... nothing really interesting happened). Moving along... xP
1/5/11 (9:05 AM)- I continued to progress through the game last night. I made a number of new allies (it's pretty easy to guess what order I caught them in based on the map), but I lost a good friend. Rocky died last night in my battle with Galactic Commander Jupiter in the Eterna HQ. He sacrificed himself to save Nala from Skuntank's Night Slash crit (he would have made it had it not been a crit). I spent the better part of the rest of my playtime sadly moping about, and later decided to press on. Rocky would have wanted me to be strong- he saved Nala for a reason. So I made my new friends... I got my Eevee last night, last thing before bed and saved. When I woke up, it was not only Timid, but shiny. Had to rub my eyes a bit to make sure I wasn't still half asleep LOL. I also got a Ponyta, which is important. So while last night was very sad, I made progress.
1/6/11 (9:23 PM)- Wow. I didn't advance in the story too much , but it feels like so much has happened. I've been having trouble getting my one capture in- many seem to get critted at the wrong time, I run out of balls, or it kills itself before I can catch it. But I've made a few new friends. I managed to get past Fantina without any casualties. I also beat my Rival (on the way out of Heartome) with no issues, too. However, as I moved north from Solaceon to buy some Moomoo Milk, I decided to fight some trainers in the cabin selling the milk. I was allowing Inferno to take them all down- he just mowed through them. Until we went across a Heracross. I figured we could OHKO it, or at least finish it the second turn. I Flame Wheel. The Heracross just barely survives. And it uses Counter. Inferno died today because of this. I wasn't sad like I was with Rocky. No... This was more a feeling of guilt. I should have known that Heracross could counter and used Ember instead. I felt kind of... Inadequate is the best word I can find. I don't know what I'm going to do from here on out. All I do know is that I'm going to grind like mad. I can't be that careless in the future. Emily evolved avenging Inferno's death. In fact, several of my Pokemon have evolved. I have to keep at this. *determination*
1/9/11 (12:44 PM)- Been moving through the game's story pretty quickly now. Got the badge at Canalave today. Headed to Snowpoint now. Most of my party has evolved. Also caught six Pokemon in the Great Marsh- one for each area of the Marsh. When Zuzu evolved into Crobat... It was completely unexpected. I evolved my Eevee into Flareon and renamed it Swiss (I felt that name was more fitting now). No deaths so far, which is good. Also, my rival's Chimchar finally used a move besides Leer! It was Flame Wheel. It took him until the battle at Canalave to actually use anything  but Leer, so it was an Infernape now. xD The big part of the update today is the evolutions... It took me forever to decide how I wanted to evolve Swiss. It's nice to see everyone getting stronger- I think this team might get me to the E4. I'll avenge those who fell to get me this far. That's a promise. Oh, and I crushed Jupiter again. Felt good. xDDD

Delete if I weren't supposed to post or something.
Imo, you should have started with Empoleon.
Piplup.
Empoleon is Water/Steel which is a great advantage for a nuzlocke.

I love Turtwig. :3 I'll handle whatever difficulties my choice has wrought upon me. It'll be more special if I succeed with the one I love, no? xP

And no issue, this topic is for me to document, and for you guys to comment on and discuss my shenanigans. So post away, I reserved ages ago xP

Don't be sad when Torterra gets OHKO'd by an Ice Beam and DIES!!! XD

I will be! TwT

But I'm hoping to avoid that scenario. Not like I'd use him in the ice gym anyways... I plan on overleveling my guys a bit to help protect me as I go through the game, hopefully giving me a little buffer.

Tbh, I've never been OHKO in-game, just in meta. So I'm hoping I can keep that up- I'm not using any sort of item restrictions (aside from reviving fainted Pokemon, that is) so I should be fine, so long as I watch my ass.

I wonder who will die first. *curious* xD

Lol.
I was trying to overlevel my Pokemon... but I failed. XD
But it's probably just me.
I think the first one to die for me was Pidgey... then Mankey... then Pidgey and Rattata and Pidgey... Q.Q

I'm normally pretty good at this type of thing. However, it's just begun. I have plenty of time left to fail.

How sad! I'm sorry to hear about that. D:

Also, first comic should be up soon. Crappy, but kind of cute. I guess. I dunno, I just wanted to draw the battle LOL

LOL at the comic.
LOL, thanks. It's just a quick doodle (I even threw it in my Scraps section, if you wanna know how I feel about the quality LOL), but I'm hoping to get some more humorous/interesting ones in the near future. I'm going to get some more gameplay now. x3


Title: Re: Kloud's Nuzlocke Run- Platinum

Lol.
Chimchar is also a moron.
Pearl: Chimchar! Use Leer.
Chimchar: *right*
Pearl: Chimchar! Use Leer.
Chimchar: *hum... what?*
Pearl: Chimchar! Use Leer.
Chimchar: *facepalm*

But no... XD

I think it'd be fun if in your comics you'd make the Chimchar grow more and more stupid or something.
Dumb ape ftw.

Your comic is funny.
And quality doesn't matter for a nuzlocke comic. XD

D'ya mind if I try that? Would be friggin' hilarious xD

And thanks! :D And orly? That's aweesssoooommmmeee. xD Then I'll be sure to have many more. It was fun just scribbling what happened.

Now to log some more game time. I've been procrastinating. xP Because of Wessu... *cuddles him*

I've never heard of this before =O sounds hard xD I would never do that haha =P
What happened if you run into a shiny thought after you've caught something? Do you have to pass it up? That would make me cry... heh
The comic is hilarious xD leer? JUST leer? that's incredibly sad haha, idiot...
What'd you name your character and your rival?


Title: Re: Kloud's Nuzlocke Run- Platinum
Post by: Kloud on January 03, 2011, 09:59:49 am
1. Technically, by the Second Rule of Nuzlocke, you're supposed to. It's very unlikely it'll happen, but if it did, I'd see no issue capturing it and just leaving it in a box alone, and never using it until I traded it to another game. A shiny is a shiny, after all. xP
2. Yeah, it was really a dumb battle, in retrospect. During the battle, I was really afraid that he'd attack at the last moment and OHKO Roca. Because his Chimchar outsped Roca, so he could have tried... But he just kept Leering LOL
3. My character is Shelby (myfirst name- I thought it'd make it seem more real LOL), and my rival is Richie (after the spriter, since he's a nice guy. I thought it's be fun to name him after one of my PPN people xP ).


Title: Re: Kloud's Nuzlocke Run- Platinum
Post by: Ai Char on January 03, 2011, 10:07:24 am
well that's cool =D
What happened if your team can't learn a necessary HM?
Like what if you never get a water pokemon or something? Is that possible?


Title: Re: Kloud's Nuzlocke Run- Platinum
Post by: Kloud on January 03, 2011, 10:11:13 am
It can happen. However, it's generally accepted that you can go back and get something from an unused Route- hopefully a Water type.

All and all, if you're really and truly stuck, it's the general consensus that it's a game over. Because by the point you need an HM, you should have at least one Pokémon who can use it, unless you've been skipping Routes or you've been careless with your Pokémon and let your HM buddies die.


Title: Re: Kloud's Nuzlocke Run- Platinum
Post by: Ai Char on January 03, 2011, 10:30:52 am
I see... that sounds really hard to do haha, good luck!  I bet you could do it though, you always seem to be good with these types of things... I would fail by the first gym.

Thanks, but how you figure that? 0w0 *curious*

OH! If I was really in need of a Surfer, like desperate, I could always evolve the Eevee from Heartome into a Vaporeon. ^_^ Strength and Rock Smash can be learned by most, just as Cut can. But yeah... Hm. I guess I'll cross those bridges when I get to them. ^__^

You can't miss an HM in Pt.
It's a certitude that you would catch a Bidoof. So you can always get a Bibarel and he is THE HM slave. XD

@Ai Char: I haven't made it to the 1st gym myself XD I gave up before that.

Post by: Ai Char on January 03, 2011, 02:00:40 pm

Yeah, Kloud named her Shinx Nala & I pointed out my cats name was Nala.


Title: Re: Kloud's Nuzlocke Run- Platinum

why nala though? I'm curious... I have an idea why, but I'd like to know your reasoning.

Post by: Kloud on January 03, 2011, 02:16:09 pm

Nala, from Lion King. Since the main female lion from the story was named Nala, and my Shinx is a female... And Shinx is kind of based on lions. :)  I liked that movie as a kid xP

Anyways, second post updated. Check back for a dramatic comic tonight LOL

aw well, if you think that's an okay name xD
can't wait for the comic =]


Title: Re: Kloud's Nuzlocke Run- Platinum
Post by: Kloud on January 03, 2011, 02:32:36 pm
He probably won't be on my team forever, since I already have Roca. But either way, his ability will rock when it's working for me instead of against me, LOL.

I'll bump this up when the comic has arisen~

"NAAAALLLLLAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" xP


Title: Re: Kloud's Nuzlocke Run- Platinum
Post by: Ai Char on January 03, 2011, 02:42:49 pm
oh that's true, turtwig...
what does the ability do?
where's the name Roca from?

Post by: Kloud on January 03, 2011, 03:11:53 pm

Overgrow: When a Pokémon with Overgrow uses a Grass-type move, the power will increase by 1.5x if the user has less than or equal to 33% of its maximum HP remaining.

Roca comes from here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Almond_Roca). It's a type of candy that's yummy.

Poison Point has a chance of Poisoning whenever it is hit by a physical attack. Pretty nifty.We'll see what turns out to be best for the team as I continue on.

Post by: Ai Char on January 03, 2011, 03:45:35 pm
ooohhh i love poisonpoint when my pokemon have it ... but not when the opponent does.

roca sounds yummy p:

Post by: Kloud on January 03, 2011, 03:49:01 pm
Mmhmm, I know! It is. :)

Anyways, Bud seems to be adjusting to the team well. He's leveling fast and is quickly proving himself useful. :D Wonder who my next teammate will be...


Title: Re: Kloud's Nuzlocke Run- Platinum
Post by: Ai Char on January 03, 2011, 03:57:13 pm
hopefully something very useful xD.

Well it looks like Bud has perfect IVs in Speed, at least. But so far, everyone is useful. They've all been good ^__^

Well, with Nuzlocke there are various rules you can add on to the basic ruleset. I'm sure that there are non-Nuzlocke rules that can be used to restrict play, but I haven't heard of them much.

It seems to be used by a fairly small number of people. I'm sure more try and don't get very far, but from what I've seen, it's a small phenomena, when compared with most other things Pokemon brings about- such as the metagame, event collecting, etc.

Yeah, it's really a test of will to keep yourself on track. I'm sure it's even harder if one of your Pokemon dies.

yeah seriously... I mean I have trouble finishing a game normally haha. or I used to, once I started using walkthrough teams it got a lot easier but... this would make it near impossible for me to do a game, especially the E4.  I'm playing sapphire right now and it's so dang fun! I beat all eight gyms but... I really just don't want to do the E4 Dx


Title: Re: Kloud's Nuzlocke Run- Platinum

I'm sure the move will get replaced by something else, or that it'll use a different move. But it's still pretty dang funny IMO xD

Don't you think it's a bit scary?
Maybe it's a message as to say "I'm leering you".
Something may be stuck in your game. XP

I think it's more humorous than scary xP

Though technically it should know four moves by now (Scratch, Leer, Ember, and Taunt), I'm not too concerned yet. If it does it for much longer, it'll start getting creepy fast xD

Silly because you release your Pokemon and stuff. XD

I'm boxing mine. Since I'm a wimp. And I like to look back and see who was lost. Chances are I'll release the dead after the E4.

Yes LOL.

Although technically I would have had space for her, but... Kappa just got murdered xD I had her for all of five minutes before she died. Wave does Kappa's job nicely, though, so I'm not too worried.

I know <3 I just felt happy to have a Water type again. xDD

Also, when I get Eevee, what do you guys vote I evolve it into? Since it's one of the few areas that is a choice here, haha. All I can say is that Togepi is going into the boxes. Because I have an awesome Zubat! xD

I always say Glaceon. But... It's really late in the game.
I think Flareon would be a good choice.
It'd sure come in handy later for the Ice gym.

Mmhmm, I love Glaceon. It's adorable <3

Flareon would probably be really useful. If I manage to catch a Ponyta, though, I plan on using that as my Fire Type to free up Eevee for other possibilities. Guess we'll see what I get in the next grass patch. xP

If you felt bad for Kappa, read today's update. You may not feel as bad as I do, but it's pretty powerful. I've never had a Pokemon game make me get so close to crying before... ^^;;;;

Thanks! Please continue to follow the story, I'll try to amuse the best I can LOL.

lol the second comic was funny
And a third is on it's way tomorrow ;D Thanks ^^

Losing Rocky kind of changed things. =/ With him, I had everything planned out all nice... But now, I don't know what I wanna do from this point on. I need a plan- I don't want to lose anyone else.

LOL, I guess it's as Nuzlocke always says... "I believe that this all happened for a reason." Maybe it's a sign xD

I wouldn't release it. All of my dead Pokémon go to Box2, which is named Graveyard. All of my other Pokémon not in my party, I leave in Box1, called Captures or something like that.

I'm really happy with my Eevee- I haven't used it yet, though. xP

*puts the Eevee in box 20*
*goes back to box 1*
*sees box 1's name*
*"You shouldn't have done that."*
Oh. fuck. xD

If I saw that, I'd shit bricks. But see my explanation of boxes above to see why that isn't the case xP Although your post did make me feel a tad uneasy LOL

Anyways, I've decided to keep Eevee, and train it a little now and then, but to not use it or evolve it yet. I'm going to save it just in case one of my vital party members dies. If nobody significant dies, I'll evolve it according to what I want. This seems to be my best option for now- I want to raise up what I already have built first.

And Crobat's evolution was competely unexpected. It was the first time I felt wonder when seeing an evolution in a long time xD But they're all so strong now. Granted I need to grind some more before the next gym... But I'm proud of this team. None of them have died yet, they've all been able to survive.

Nala seems rediculously OP'd. I think it's because she wants to avenge Rocky ;-; xP

I've been really careful with all of my team. The weakest is Wave, LOL. Nala is quite the powerhouse, probably due to her nature. She's had a few close calls, but Zuzu and Emily have done a good job of watching her weaknesses.

Shinx is adorable, I agree. It just can't take many hits... Which is why I have to be careful. Usually I'll send out Emily to take the hit if she can, and even though Emily isn't fast, she sure can hit hard. And Zuzu is freaking fast. Always goes first, so I can use Fly and swoop in for the kill LOL

Wave is a Gastrodon. :3 Her attacks are okay as they cover areas other members don't, but she doesn't deal as much damage during neutral battles as others do, so I tend to use others for neutral matchups.

Also, working on my LG stuff right now. You guys are gonna love it. :D

Well everything in this thread is as relative to a walkthrough team. =)

I mean, I'd never teach my Pokemon HM moves or moves like Bite if I were to use them competitively. The only reason I do it here is for getting around and for coverage. Because I have been in a corner before, and it's saved my ass. xDDD

Adamant (second post contains all natures, abilities, and catch locations for reference :)). Her ability isn't the best, but when she's faced with another female, she just kills everything. Even when faced with a guy, she does well. Her attack is nice and high. I think her IVs must be pretty decent. x3

Even when faced with a guy, she does well. Her attack is nice and high. I think her IVs must be pretty decent. x3

I was too lazy to look. :P
Some of the most unexpected Pokemon almost always turn out to be good. It's sad in a way. XD

Yeah... I'm still surprised that a Zubat (and subsequent evos) has been one of the core members of my team since pretty much the start. I'm all... "Seriously? Zubat kicks ass? Wow." xD

But it does make me appreciate them slightly more. To know a "crud's" potential is great is something else entirely. xP

Yeah, Zuzu has saved me so many times by being faster than the opponent. Seriously, that thing has saved a teammate's life so many times... xD Flying types are pretty cool. I personally think Swablu/Altaria are adorable. <3

Where are you exactly? I see Canalave... but isn't that like really far already?
Also, if you need a good HM slave sometimes, Tropius is awesome too. Just like Bibarel. :P

I should see this fanart, maybe they'd climb in my esteem. XD
Just like it did for Burungeru.

I'm past Snowpoint, past the whole letting the Lake beings free thing... That's the last thing I did before I saved, set them free. :)

I.. I just finished up in the Distortion World. I caught Giratina (Master Ball, I couldn't be bothered to do the whole Ultra Ball deal). I'm still crying, haha...

Wave died while we were fighting Cyrus. By some miracle, everyone else managed to escape, albeit most of them were on their last legs. But she's gone. She kept going in and taking the hits that would have been fatal to the others, and she died....

Giratina packs power and is like a floating fortress.
You can use it for harder battles. I say all that but you probably know already. :/

I know. I'm gonna grind some more. I'm considering taking Rose into the party, since I leveled her a bit awhile ago to levels close enough to the party that I can probably level her enough to make her part of the team... But yeah, I know what you're saying. Iono if I want to use Nap. It feels kind of wrong to use a legend, even if it doesn't violate my rules. xP

xP

Although I do see your point. It is a well earned prize, indeed.

I'm not a fan of using legends in game most of the time anyways, Nuzlocke or not (I use them in meta, when I do). Even if I spend an hour trying to catch it, I still feel cheap if I use them afterward. It's a personal moral of mine, I guess. Although I am rather eager to get to my LG run.. I want my LG run to be hilarious and dramatic xP

I used Moltres on my Platinum to help train my team after the E4.
It quickly climbed to LV100. XD
Moltres is useful because he's not TOO MUCH overpowered and he's a Fire-type which is rare.

They can easily be replaced.

Volkner is weak though. Only 1st gym leader with an evolved Pokemon but he's still the weakest. XD
It's sad.

I don't like Fighting-types. Well, I guess I like Poliwrath and... Mankey/Primeape.

Mmhmm... I like a few of the Fighting types, but most I'm either neutral towards or dislike. But they are useful, no doubt, against all the Steel in Sinnoh, as well as Normal types that are everywhere.

Made it by Aaron with no deaths, almost done with Bertha (scratch that, just finished off her Rhypherior, so she's done too). No deaths as of yet, but a few close calls. Two down, three to go...

... And just like that, my run is over. At 40:55 hours in, I have defeated the Champion and finished my Nuzlocke challenge.

Roca- level 58
Nala- level 59
Zuzu- level 57
Swiss- level 57
Emily- level 55
Rose- level 61

These were my team's levels at the end. Nobody died, but Zuzu was on the ragged edge of death at 3 HP.

It's done. I can't believe I made it on my first try. *tearing up*

They're pretty average, considering that Cynthia's highest is Garchomp at level 62. She has three at level 58 and two at level 60. I basically swapped to a Pokemon with a move with a type advantage, then attacked. When I needed a heal and couldn't stay in, I'd switch to someone who could wall whatever was out and heal then switch back. They aren't very overleveled, but I did use a lot of items. xD;; In my next run, I plan on grinding more.

Not easy though. The first time I tried, my rival left me with 1HP on the first battle and a rattatta critted me after two tail whips xD. My restart is proving more interesting though... even though it's hax infested. ._.;;

Well, we're going by the same rules (implying you're using the same rules as now), so it would be who finishes first, naw? And of course, if one dies the person is out...

Nah, I'm changing the ruleset to just the basics (although I'm keeping the Variation on the Second Rule of Nuzlocke intact, because that makes the game on-so much more bearable, IMO). You'll see the ruleset when I get my topic up. ^_^

But yeah, I'll be creamed LOL. Considering that I have school being awful right now. Oh well, I still say come at meh! And even if I lose, I'll still have awesome comics x3
