    Anyway, there are two things I can do.

    1: Abandon the nuzlocke

    2: Perform actions of dubious legality (I have a hard copy of Ruby around here somewhere) and recreate the nuzlocke. This means suspending "nuzlocke mode" and catching the same Pokemon and such until I get to the point I was at before. Thus, the Pokemon and their names will remain the same, but stats and natures will change (not that it really matters). Items will probably change, but who cares about that kind of micromanaging?
    Would 2 mean it would be a written run?

    Okay, guys, I’ve done some research and it looks like next gym is a little out of our league. So, that means it’s grinding time.




    Hi, what’s your name?

    *sigh* My name is Marvin.

    You alright? You sound kinda down.

    I’m just as fine as ever, considering I have been stranded here for ten million years.

    What? Ten million years?

    Yes. I have been traveling with a pair of apes, a man from a small planet in the vicinity of Betelgeuse, and the ex-president of the galaxy. However, they conveniently forget to bring me along when they go off on one of their trips through time, and I end up being stuck on the same planet for eighty million years before they show up again like it has been ten minutes.

    This happens often?

    Yes. Because of their little trips through time, I am now seventeen times older than the universe itself.

    Sounds like a harsh life.

    Made all the worse in that I have a terrible pain in all the diodes down the left side of my body. My capacity for happiness you could fit into a matchbox without taking out the matches.

    Maybe you should come with us. Maybe we can help you.

    Help. Ha. If I know you, and I do, insofar as I know all organic life-forms, which is far too well, you will be completely unable to do anything but cause me misery.

    How so?

    They crashed me into a sun once. They left me on a ship about to hit a star, and they left me behind to teleport them away.

    Oh, come on, it won’t be that bad.

    Yes, it will.



    Well too bad, you’re coming anyway. Aron the robot Pokemon. Aron are paranoid androids who believe that their entire existence is misery.




    Are we done yet?

    Not by a long shot.

    Aww… I wanna smoke some shrooms…



    Now are we done?

    No, William.



    If I have to move, then nobody else gets to!

    What? That doesn’t make any sense.

    So what? It’s not my fault you won’t give me shrooms!

    William, just shut up.



    Now?

    NO!



    Now?

    Okay, okay, you’re done! Just shut up!



    Man, have you ever lazed around in the sunshine? Nuthin’ like it, man.



    Ahm queen a’ tha werld!

    Say, Petey, if you’re a girl, how come they call you Petey?

    Well, Chief, mah real name’z Patricia. But ah waz a girl in a mahn’z werld, so the guyz gave me ah guy’z name.



    But wait? Why should ah be a girl in a mahn’z werld when ah could be ah mahn in a girl’z werld?



    Alright, Petey, you’re done. Good work.

    Thanks, Chief!



    Lidda, if you keep this up, I’m going to turn you in myself.

    But I didn’t do anything!



    That was refreshing!

    Kill… Infect…

    Never!

    You’re doing it again.

    Not to worry, sir, it is merely my cold acting up again.



    No, you are not learning how to filch even more.

    But I can find you all sorts of good things!



    My finding gets even better!

    Joy…



    And even better!

    I wish your attack would get better.



    Okay, you’re done, Lidda.

    Yay! Now to find things!



    *urk* I feel funny.

    Lidda?



    Yes, I know now what I must do.

    Huh?



    I must find all the things!

    *sigh*



    I can now refresh myself more efficiently!

    Harvest… the… life… force…



    Nice work, Azgard!



    Yeah, we’re doing alright.




    Alright, take a break.

    Thank you, kind sir.

    The… harvest… is… not… complete…



    Ninja blade strike!



    Your powers are as nothing before the might of a ninja!



    None shall escape my blade!



    Ninja life steal!



    My power grows even more!



    A ninja already knows her foe’s every thought.



    Yeah, fat lot of good that’s gonna do us.



    Good job, Blackstar. Take a breather.

    Many thanks, sensei.



    You are most kind.



    Allow me to thank you for sharing with me your wisdom.




    I shall slay all who dare stand against you.



    I shall strike from all angles.



    My blows shall grow ever more devastating. I shall kill them all!

    Uhh… Azgard, you’re up.



    No problem.




    Alright, I think we’re good! Next stop: Brawly!

    2: On Route 110, I can get Plusle, Minum, Oddish, Gulpin and Electrike. Anybody want to suggest names/personalities?

    3: I kinda want to put Marvin on the main team. Anybody agree, and if so, who gets boxed?

    Grab one on one of the routes you can reach.

    Plusie and Minun. Plus or Minus. Wants to find it's friend. Will stop at nothing to do so.

    Oddish Eats pokemon that provide no nutritional value, in preparation for it's evolution. Thinks it will evolve into Vileplume

    Guplin. Snack. Will try to eat your team if you have your back turned, will constantly complain about it's empty stomach.

    Electrike Sirshocker. A follower of Spike.


    Uh sure, put Azgard on the reserve.

    Lv 20 and bring Petey, Mt.Spore, and William.

    But they are females, and he's a male, and I seriously doubt any of them have the oblivious trait or a white herb handy.

    But they all have male Pokemon, which will take exception to their misteresses being abused like that. Not to mention Illven got arrested when his Pokemon used attacks on humans.

    Easy solution is to have William order the mind-slave to get their pokemon to stop attacking.

    And technically Illven was arrested for his pokemon getting caught using attacks on humans

    Actually, William kind of bores me. Then again, look at his character.

    You've already got another bug/flying type, so he's easily dropped.

    That, and you'd be dropping someone who complains a lot for someone who complains a lot. It makes sense.


    Finally forced me into getting one of these.

    Alright, this is the place. Petey, William, you’re with me.

    Leht’s go, chief!

    Man, do I hafta?




    Wow, it’s dark in here.



    How did you know my name?





    I know, that’s why I’m not.



    I said I know.



    I noticed that as well!



    Finally, something I don’t know!





    I walked off in a huff. Seriously, people can just be idiots sometimes.



    And according to the contrived rules of irony that seem to dictate my battles, you are going to cry when I win.



    Really?



    I knew it, I knew it!



    Because it breaks so easy?



    I’m going to ignore the subtext there.



    At least it’s getting brighter. I can finally see my hands now.



    You should join Team Magma.



    Next challenger!





    What are you talking about? I beat your Pokemon into the dirt.



    Oookay…



    Right.



    Next.



    Next victim.



    Are we done now?



    Let’s see, level advantage, type advantage, uh, yeah.





    Good for you.



    Now you’re getting into my turf, though.



    Alright, we ready for this?

    Leht’s get ‘ihm, Chief!

    Aw c’mon, man, can’t we smoke some shrooms first?

    I rolled my neck again, getting a single pop this time.



    I’m Michael, Champion-to-be.





    I’ve traveled the west coast of the region, trashing everyone that challenges me. Now it’s your turn.



    I put a headphone in my left ear and pressed a button on my Pokenav. Seeing as it came with an MP3 player, I had taken the liberty of downloading a few songs for it.



    ~Risin' up, back on the street



    Alright, guys, let’s do this!

    ~Did my time, took my chances



    Take ‘em out, Petey!

    ~Went the distance now I’m back on my feet



    Petey, Wing Attack!

    ~Just a man and his will to survive



    You can take that, Bulk Up!

    ~It’s the Eye of the Tiger



    Like that’s gonna do you a lot of good. Wing Attack again!

    ~It’s the thrill of the fight



    ~Rising up to the challenge of our rival



    ~As the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night



    Alright, Petey!

    ~And he’s watching us all with the eye



    ~Of the Tiger



    ~So many times, it happens too fast



    Nice work, Petey, take a breather.

    ~You trade your passion for glory



    Your turn, William!

    Aww…

    ~Don’t loose your grip on the dreams of the past



    I’m not down yet!

    William, Gust!

    ~You must fight just to keep them alive



    ~It’s the Eye of the Tiger



    Bulk Up!

    ~It’s the thrill of the fight



    Finish it, Gust!

    ~Rising up to the challenge of our rival



    Not so fast!

    ~As the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night



    One more!

    ~And he’s watching us all with the Eeeeeeeeyyyyyyeeeee



    Yeeeaaaahhhh!

    ~Of the Tiger







    That would be a great pun if I had a different Pokemon.



    Don’t mind if I do.


    Alright! Nice work, guys!

    Mah pleazher, Chief!

    Ow, my wings…





    Wait, I didn’t have to listen to him? Aw, crap.



    However that works.

    It’s like a permit. You have to be able to prove yourself responsible enough to use moves outside of battle situations.

    Then why did I need to beat Roxanne, the easiest of you, to get Cut, and I only get Flash from you?

    Bureaucrats. Anyway,







    The useless move you insisted on using?



    One more thing.

    Yes?

    Roxanne said something about Auras or something. Some sort of ability to see into someone’s life and fate.


    Yes, it’s true. You know what I see?

    Okay, William, sorry to do this to you, but you’re off the main team. Welcome aboard, Marvin.

    Oh, man, finally!

    How like an organic life-form of you. Here I am, brain the size of a planet, and you want me to fight wild animals.

    Pretty much. Gotta grind you up to match the rest of the team first, though.





    Uhhh, no.



    Did you not hear me?









    I said no.



    Nope.



    Well, there’s a website I like to hang around on. It’s called Giant in the









    Sure you did.











    You, like, sound like so much like a girl like there.



    You’re nuts. I fled the scene.



    Nice work!

    Ow, my diodes.



    *sigh*



    Good work, keep it up!



    Alright, got yourself some firepower now!

    What a depressingly stupid creature you are.



    That’s gotta hurt.

    You think pain is only physical.



    Nice work!

    Thank you, sir!

    Slay…



    Halfway there!



    Nice!



    Really nice!



    Nice work, Azgard!





    We’re gonna need this if we want to go further in.



    Almost there!



    Alright, you’re done!

    Joy. My life has been so improved by the sensless beating of helpless creatures.



    Wow, that’s dark.

    I wrote a song once. You don’t want to hear it.

    Regardless, he launched on into a monotonal drone.

    Now the world has gone to bed
    Darkness won’t engulf my head
    I can see by infrared
    How I hate the night


    That’s… wonderful…

    Now I lay me down to sleep
    Try to count electric sheep
    Sweet dream wishes you can keep
    How I hate the night


    You must have a terrific outlook on life.

    Life. Don’t talk to me about life.

    Ookayy, anyway, Mr. Spore, Flash.



    Mr. Spore started glowing, and the cavern began to light up.



    Alright!



    Huh, wonder what that is…

    There was a name chiseled the stone, Sarah, with a birthdate, a deathdate twenty-nine years later, and a poem.

    The years may come, the years may go
    And though I travel high and low
    My eyes shall never see again
    A face as they had beheld then

    Before the night that stole you away
    I got down on my knees to pray
    That we would stand together when
    Inside the Great Hall we would tread

    Since you were taken from the then
    My heart has ever felt like lead
    A second chance is all I ask
    To see your smiling face and ask

    To ask if you would marry me
    And we would spend eternity
    Delighting in each other’s company
    Beyond this world’s reality

    But you are gone and I am left
    Arceus’ judge has come and went
    Stealing you out of my arms
    But leaving you inside my heart

    But one day we shall reunite
    Our love shall always hold us tight
    Till that fateful day shall come
    And I shall again see my love

    The years shall ever grow more long
    ‘Till I can sing to you the song
    That I would cry out day or night
    Of how you made my heart so light

    I leave now to continue life
    For your sake as for mine
    And one day we shall meet again
    But slowly creeps the time

    Farewell my love, I wish you well
    As you live beyond the stars
    But when I have gone out from this world
    In my arms you I shall hold.

    Farewell, my love. We shall see each other again.


    …Wow…

    ‘At’s so moovin’

    This world is a harsh one, full of troubles. But also, there is joy here, if one can find it

    Joy... Kill...

    Shut up!

    My people have written many songs and poems of love and loss. And yet, never has one moved me as this.

    Are you guys really gonna sit there and sob about that all day?

    Azgard, really?

    Yeah, it’s sad, but we should really get moving.



    Okay, that should be back up to the entrance.



    Alright, I can see again!



    Uh, hello?



    Uh, yes, it is.





    Okay…





    I’m Michael, and I’ve got a letter for you.



    Yeah, here you go.





    Lidda started sniffing around Steven’s foot. Lidda, no!

    It’s okay. Besides, once Linoone smell something, they never give up until they find it. He took a nugget out of his pocket and tossed it to Lidda

    Yeeeee!

    Wow, you’ve gotta be rich to toss away a nugget like that.

    Money means little to me. I live life for its true pleasures, rather than material gain. But anyway,







    Wow, that sounds awesome. If only you had wings, Marvin.

    If only I had wings. Then I could fly into the sun.





    Well, we’ve been though quite a bit together.







    Alright, see you around.

    Farewell, my Illven.

    Your what?

    In my land, an Illven is one who is your superior, but not your direct commander.

    Oh.

    Steven smirked. An interesting title, to be sure. I will have to use it some time. But as I said, I must be going. Please excuse me.

    Okay, bye. And Steven walked out. I turned to the beige lump of fur frolicing on the floor Lidda...

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
