Mr. Dusk Takes on the Nuzlocke Challenge!

Post by Mr. Dusk on Thu Apr 30, 2015 7:59 pm

So, I've been thinking that it'd be fun to take on the Nuzlocke Challenge for Pokemon Emerald and posting a Let's Play on here while doing it. Said Let's Play will more or less be a story like the Nuzlocke webcomics with screen shots from the game and a story more or less told from the perspective of the player character.

So, who wants to watch me suffer?

Thinking of starting it on Saturday, bit too busy ATM to do it now. In the meantime, anyone got any suggestions for the PC's name, or should it remain as Dusk?

Aside from that, what other rules should I follow aside from "If a pokemon faints, release it" and "You can only catch the first pokemon you find in an area"?

Oh boy, Steveo playing Pokemon, and a randomized Nuzlocke no less.

Well, I have some additional rules if you like challenge my friend:

Use the same amount of Pokémon as the opponent during a Gym battle or rival battle.
Go to options and make the battle style "set", leaving you unable to switch out.
No using Pokémon Centers, rely only on Potions and healing items for healing.
Or the opposite: Don't use potions or other healing items and use Pokemon Centers only.
Held items are forbidden.
Not allowed to flee from wild Pokemon battles.
Even if you have back-up in the PC, the moment you "black/white out", it's game over.

Okay so I can have only like 14 named Pokemon?

I think I'll only use the "same amount", "No running from battles", and "Black/White out means Game Over" rules.  Switching out is more or less my playstyle at times, and seeing I more or less just use Poke-Centers...I'll think on that rule for now.

For my rule, minor characters like Wilfred or Marty Mailbox also apply.

I'm doing Emerald, you don't name the rival, he's just some punkass kid named Wally who claims to be better than you...for some stupid reason.

Lol, Wally's anything but a cocky kid. He's a poor lad with asthma who just wants to git gud.

Can't wait to see you do this by the way, hopefully it will turn out entertaining.

I'm guessing most hatred comes from Wally not being Blue.

Okay let me clear this up: I don't hate Wally, I just find him to be annoying at times.  Literally all of my interactions with him in Ruby were like this:

Dad: Help this kid out.
Me: Okay.
Wally: Thanks buddy!
Me: You're welcome buddy!
LATER
Me: Oh hey Wally, what's up?
Wally: Hey, Ralts is getting stronger!  Let's battle.
Me: Uh..okay.
CURB-STOMP BATTLE
Wally: I lost...well I'm going to get stronger than you and challenge you again someday!
Me: Yeah, sure, whatever.
LATER STILL
Wally: I'm gonna beat you this time!
Me: Okay seriously, how the FUCK did you get here before me?  I WAS SO FAR AHEAD OF YOU!
Wally: I'm going to beat you this time!
Me: Seriously?  I have a GOD in my team now.  You don't stand a chance.
ANOTHER CURB-STOMP BATTLE
Wally: I lost again...I'll beat you one of these days!
Me: Right...smell ya later Wally.

Oh God, I've become the BLUE in the game!  D:

Lol if you think Wally's bad you haven't seen the rivals from later Pokemon games.

Barry in D/P/Pt is that kid who never takes his ritalin enough though he should, although he does have a kickass team of Pokemon.
Cheren & Bianca have the worst fucking rival music in existence.
N, Hugh and Colress are actually pretty cool though.
Shauna, Trevor and Tierno are garbage, fuck those stooges.

Nah the best kind of rivals would like the rivals in your standard action anime. You and your rivals are buddies, yet you still want to fight them now and again just to see who's better from time to time.

Yeah generations four and five are amazing with what they added. Generation six has some cool stuff in it but really shouldn't have as much hand-holding as it does. I've played Pokemon for nearly fifteen years GameFreak, I know what the fuck I'm doing, shit.

But yeah Steveo, Barry, Cheren, Bianca, N, Hugh and Colress are more like that type of rival you've described.

All right!  I've officially started the challenge!

RULES FOR THIS NUZLOCKE:

RULE 1: I can only capture the FIRST Pokemon I encounter in each new area I explore.  "Duplications do not count" variation is in effect in order to make the team more unique.
RULE 2: If any of my Pokemon faints, it must be released.  IT IS DEAD.
RULE 3: All captured Pokemon must be nicknamed after an Ed Edd n Eddy character, whether it be main, minor, unseen, or possibly a fan OC...but I ultimately get to choose which Pokemon get what name.
RULE 4: When fighting a Gym/Trainer/Rival battle, I can only use the same amount of Pokemon that the opponent uses.  Like a gentleman.
RULE 5: No running away from wild Pokemon Battles.
RULE 6: A black out/white out is a GAME OVER.
RULE 7: The entire playthrough will be posted on here with screenshots of the game and an novelization of the journey written by yours truly.
RULE 8: Any epic fights with SO MUCH HYPE need to be shown in full detail (Gym/Rival/Legendary/Villain/Elite Four Battles especially) with just as epic music.

PROLOGUE: My First Pokemon!



Something my dad always told me was that "true power lies in the pursuit of power itself".  While I'm not entirely sure what he meant by that, I get the feeling it has something to do with Pokemon training.



My name is Danny.  My family is new to the Hoenn region, we moved here after my dad got appointed as the Petalburg Gym Leader in Hoenn's Pokemon League.  We were all supposed to move into a house in Petalburg City, but there was a few real estate issues that I didn't really pay attention to.  Luckilly, my dad is good friends with the Pokemon Professor Birch, who put in a good word for him and managed to get us a good deal on an empty house in his hometown of Littleroot.



Dad went ahead of us to set up shop in Petalburg while mom and I packed our things and headed for Littleroot.  It was a bit of a bumpy ride considering that I had to sit in the back with the rest of the cargo, but it was fun at least.



Seeing the moving going underway, I couldn't help but be jealous of the mover.  I'll be honest, I never owned a Pokemon before.  The only ones I've interacted with were the ones my dad owned, and even then I didn't really get to use them much.  They wouldn't really listen to any command I gave them, whether it was because I wasn't their trainer or they were too busy loafing around.  



I went up to see my new bedroom and set the time on the new clock my dad bought for me.  As much as I wanted to just relax and play some Gamecube after the move, I figured it would probably be a better idea to stretch my legs and get out to see the new neighborhood I'd be spending a good part of my life in.  

I headed downstairs and mom dragged me over to the TV.





Dad on TV?  It must be the announcement of him being the new Gym Leader.  Too bad we didn't get to see the ceremony, but hey, all our stuff wasn't going to move itself.  Anyway, mom said I should go out and introduce myself to Professor Birch and the rest of our neighbors, so that's what I went to do.

I headed out and took a deep breath of the countryside.  Considering I've only been in this town for about ten minutes, it's not so bad.  It's a lot more quiet and a lot more relaxed than the city.  I've always wondered what it'd be like to live in the countryside.  My only real complaint is that it seems too peaceful here.  





I visited the neighbors, Mrs. Birch and her two kids May and...um...dang didn't get that other kid's name.









May reminded me of one of those anime girls who tend to have a crush on the main character yet is too shy to tell him, so the main character ignores and forgets about them.  The girl then stalks the MC in hopes that they'll be noticed by their senpai or whatever, and may end up killing them or any other girl that gets in their way.  

Then you realize this anime you're watching is kind of messed up.

Professor Birch was nowhere to be seen, so I went to the only other building of interest in this town: Professor Birch's Pokemon Lab.  I couldn't find him there either.



His aide said that he was the type of researcher who would rather go out and experience things firsthand, so any hope of finding him would probably lead me to look where the wild Pokemon are.



Hmm...that can't be good.





Well, seeing that nobody else in this town uses Pokemon...can't help but feel I'm forgetting someone.



Really not good!







I reached into the bag and grabbed the first ball I got my hand on.



It would have to do.



My first Pokemon battle, I'm psyched!



Oh...well, that was easy.





Birch and I headed back to his lab so we could have our meet and greet.





A-what?



HELL YEAH!  My very own Pokemon!  This is going to be awesome!

Okay, a female Torchic...I think I'll name her...



Yeah, that'll work.

The Professor told me that if Bridget and I trained hard, we would make a great team.  Then he asked me a favor.





Sure...who's May again?
