Summer (wildskf) Dude, Venomoth is beast if you train him right :D

message 9: by The landmaster (new)

The landmaster (landonzea) | 74 comments yup, he is until he meets heatran O_O. (in which case you better start running)

message 10: by The landmaster (new)

The landmaster (landonzea) | 74 comments I've never heard of nuzlocke...is it just a form of gameplay?

message 11: by Caleb (new)

Caleb Izard It's a type of gameplay. You can only catch the first pokemon you encounter in an area. If a pokemon faints it is considered dead and must be released and you must nickname every capture. There are other optional rules but those are the main ones.

message 12: by Caleb (new)

Caleb Izard I'm really liking venonat so far. Just one more lvl to evolve lol. Poor jojo the Mankey and lobster the krabby died recently.

message 13: by Caleb (new)

Caleb Izard End of day update. I am beginning to lose hope as I can feel victory slipping through my fingers... Rip Mothra 25-31 and Boo 15-29:,(

Yup, exactly what Caleb said. It was designed to make Pokemon more challenging and to have players use Pokemon they wouldn't normally have. Plus, it makes you care about Pokemon more because if they faint, that's it. If all your Pokemon faint, game over.

You can read more about it HERE and I definitely recommend watching Marriland's Pokemon Emerald Nuzlocke on YouTube (so addicting! better than watching real TV, imo)

I almost prefer Nuzlocke challenges to the actual gameplay now .3.

Badges : 1

message 16: by Caleb (new)

Caleb Izard My nuzlock has become impossible to continue. I have had terrible luck concerning status effects and crit hits and am down to my golbat and nidoqueen. As I cannot possibly win and cannot stand to see any more of my pokemon die I will be starting over.

The landmaster (landonzea) | 74 comments cool, you can have one of these games and a normal game as long as you dont save or turn the system off.

...I might try it...sounds like fun!

message 23: by The landmaster (new)

The landmaster (landonzea) | 74 comments I have never tried to buzz thru one of the games so far...a change of pace could be good...dang just realized...you wouldnt have very many pokemon, esp. in the beginning...

message 25: by The landmaster (new)

The landmaster (landonzea) | 74 comments Um, question, what counts as an "area"? and what happens if you accidentally kill the first pokemon you meet in an area?

message 26: by Caleb (new)

Caleb Izard Areas are each route/city. And if you accidentally kill the first encounter you can't catch anything in that area.

message 27: by The landmaster (new)

The landmaster (landonzea) | 74 comments Okay, thanks!

message 28: by Summer (new)

Summer (wildskf) Running a Pokemon wedlocke ( a Nuzlocke variant ) on a copy of Soul Silver with a randomizer code for added lulz.

So far, I have one pair of wedded Pokemon...

Voorhees the Aron, lvl 12
Carrie the Pupitar, lvl 10

I used to read but now I don't It's bad I know (spark740) Haha. This is a cool thread.
I made it to Winona in my first and only nuzlocke. Then decided nuzlockes aren't my thing. They say you're supposed to get really attached to your pokemon, but its when I just start over the game and wage a campaign with no rules that I am really sad to shut it off.

message 30: by Caleb (new)

Caleb Izard I have had to take a break from nuzlock a cause I am trying to complete the national before x and y come out:/. I really want to get back into it tho
