Helpful Pokemon Hint

  • Posted on September 29, 2010 at 9:46 pm

When you are fighting a trainer that’s using a lv. 8 Bellsprout (Grass type), and you get that Bellsprout down to like 1 or 2 HP, do not be tempted to go “hurr, I’ll let mah [lv. 6] Poliwag [Water type] finish it off, woot XP!”

Especially do not do this on a run where you are playing by rules that basically treat any fainted Pokemon as if they have died.

I’m using the “shove them into a PC box” method of removing “dead” Pokemon from the party, because a) it allows me to keep track of just how many Pokemon my ineptitude ends up slaughtering and b) the ever-growing Pokeboneyard will be one more thing to screencap and hang out for y’all to point and laugh at as this run goes on.

As promised: here is the first of a series of Pokemon Crystal Nuzlocke run reports. They will keep coming until I beat the Elite Four, until I give up, or until I get bored.

The rules, as a reminder (and should you wish to try this yourself). I’m not using any of the optional rules (except 3), fuck that.

With that in mind…

And we’re off!

My Nuzlocke run, let me show you it

  • Posted on September 25, 2010 at 11:13 pm

A while back I finally traded in Animal Crossing and Okami towards HeartGold. And over the course of about two days went from “huh, Pokewalker, that could be fun I guess” to “MY POKEMANS, LET ME SHOW YOU THEM!!11!!!!” I just finished getting all the Kanto badges, and also went to a restaurant with free Wi-Fi for dinner one night just so I could get the stupid Enigma Stone so I could get Latios. That’s not what this post is about.

This post is about something I just found out about that sounds way too rage-inducing and annoying for me to possibly pass up: the Nuzlocke run.

Which I am now doing on Crystal.

Reports and possibly defaced screencaps to follow.
