    Oh, my Umbreon only has Dark moves because no Pokemon in the game is immune to them. He can theoretically beat (almost) everything through, of all things, mass amounts of Tail Whip. Or X-Attacks, but that's cheap.

    Mine runs Tail Whip, Payback, Faint Attack (those opponents with evasion-boosting skills are the worst, since they can barely hurt Umbreon), and Confuse Ray.

    Ah. Mine is going to be Payback/Rest/Sleep Talk/Confuse Ray {Chesto Berry}.

    I finished training up everyone but the umbreon, which I'll do tonight.
    Sadly, I cannot take on the elite 4 until either midnight tonight or sometime tomorrow, since I have to get the Return TM and a heart scale.

    Rest + Sleep Talk is decent. Tail Whip was useful because it allowed Umbreon to actually kill things. I just used massive amounts of healing items to power through many battles.

    Sadly the point is moot. I was using him in a rematch battle on route 26 and the enemy Flareon critted twice in a row with fire blast. This left my umbreon at just under 2/3s 1/3 health, but the flareon was faster and critted a third time before I could rest.

    So sick of the amount of hax I've gone through on this nuzlocke XD

    EDIT: fixed

    Yeah, crits are bad. If you weren't doing it already, though, you should EV train. It does help. Also, use healing items. Umbreon is good, but it's not cheap; you've gotta use those healing items when crits could be a problem.

    Sorry for your loss.

    Yeah, I guess it didn't occur to me to use a hyper potion instead of rest. I'm so used to playing pvp or in battle facilities that I forget about items...

    In any case, I'm going to train up a pidgey I had in reserve tonight, and start the elite 4 either tonight or in the morning.

    Derp. Meant to say 1/3. Each crit did about 1/3 of his health, so I reasoned that I could sponge another fire blast and rest...

    EDIT: I have defeated the pokemon league. There were no casualties

    Lance just kinda wiped... I opened with X Accuracy to boost Edgar's chances of hitting even more, then Thunder->Blizzard x4 ->Surf crit

    Well, I need to take a break from Pokemon conquest after ninety hours or more of solid gameplay, so I'm going to have a go at my first ever Nuzlocke run... The game: Heart Gold.

    Planning to start off with Totodile for a decent range of type advantage, and I'll go with the no duplicates variation (also playing as a female character which I next to never do)...

    And Fangs the female Totodile lives...

    So... I managed to beat all 8 gyms with almost no casualties (Squawks the Pidgeot got critted to death), but now I have to wait a bit for the gym leaders I can 1-shot to come online for rematches.

    I somehow managed to nab a Larvitar on my first visit to Mount Silver. Given that most of my pokemon are immune to it, the Sand Stream is going to be *very* useful against Red when I fight him. No 100% blizzards to deal with

    Right now I'm tracking down the ice beam TM for Edgar, so I don't have to rely on wide lens. He's going to get an expert belt instead.

    EDIT: I wish you the best of luck, Mercenary Pen, and I hope you don't have to deal with the sheer volume of crit hax I had to.

    Red might still have 100% blizzards. I remember reading someone certain trainers in HG/SS have 100% base hax accuracy. Although I might be wrong.

    He has 100% accurate Blizzards because you fight him in a hailstorm, which increases accuracy of Blizzard to 100% in Gen 4.

    Also, the Ice Beam TM is only obtainable from the Game Corner. Have fun playing Voltorb Flip!

    Voltorb Flip is a fun pasttime, I just wish I had the option of paying money for coins instead of having to spend large amounts of time earning small sums of coins. There is still a luck element to Voltorb Flip, so it's not different enough from the slots to really make a difference as a game.

    I'll consider carefully on the Gastly, especially considering I may have difficulty tracking down somebody to trade with- which is also a point against the Geodude.

    Has to be said that my battle through the sprout tower was marked by a ton of hypnosis spam, especially on the top floor where my opponents were using it as well. Going to go and put another level or two onto everything before I set foot in Falkner's gym.

    Edit: Violet city gym now defeated, team is now as follows:
    Stoneface (Geodude) Lv13
    Fangs (Totodile) Lv11
    Eyes (Hoothoot) Lv11
    Apparition (Gastly) Lv11

    Short term, Gastly has been a great switch in against wild pokemon like Caterpie and Bellsprout to reduce or negate the damage they can do to my team- frail it may be, but its immunities allow it to be used carefully to achieve some impressive results if I'm careful.

    Ghost-types have one very important use in Nuzlocke: negating the chance of Critical Explosion destroying one of your team members.
    It's tgva8889. If you can't spell it correctly, just copypasta it, please.

    There're also scary. I just rematched Morty and narrowly dodged both Perish Song and Destiny bond by one turn and about 10 hp, respectively.

    Note to self: don't train on him.

    Okay, time for a quick update on my run, and there's been another casualty because I made a stupid mistake... letting Pullover my Flaaffy get fainted by Scyther in the Azalea town gym when I should have switched out to Geodude.

    Team is currently:
    Fangs (totodile) Lv16
    Stoneface (geodude) Lv16
    Norvegicus (Rattata) Lv16 (fast becoming an HM slave since I taught him Rock Smash)
    Apparition (Gastly) Lv16
    Inertia (Slowpoke) Lv11- thinking of running a Curse-based tank set on this, with Slack Off for healing

    In memoriam:
    Chime the Bellsprout
    Pullover the Flaaffy

    Had a somewhat morbid moment when a kid in violet city offered to trade an Onix for the corpse of my Bellsprout- he had a creepy look in his eye, so I couldn't in good conscience have traded with him.

    I may allow a couple of second chances to fainted pokemon... though I'm thinking of making myself earn them by selling off 10 Revives or Max revives each time (and banning myself from buying them just to sell them)

    What level should I be before I take on red? I was thinking 85 for a team of five pokemon:

    Mara the Tyranitar: [?] Earthquake/Crunch/Rock Slide/Stealth Rock
    Cacon the Togekiss: [Leftovers] Aura Sphere/Air Slash/Shock Wave/Shadow Ball
    Edgar the Nidoking: [Expert Belt] Ice Beam/Flamethrower/Surf/Earth Power
    Sio the Golem: [?] Stone Edge/Earthquake/Protect/Double-Edge
    Grizzly the Ursaring: [Quick Claw] Earthquake/Return/Hammer Arm/Roar


    Spoiler
    Show

    I just witnessed the most spectacular display of misses and crits I have ever seen. I was rematching Bugsy, and Cacon managed to miss Air Slash three times in a row, during which his Scizor used Swords Dance... three times... and managed to crit again and again. The only pokemon on my team it didn't one-shot was Edgar, and I would have made it out alive if the Scizor didn't crit before it ran out of PP.

    In memoriam:
    Cacon, level 82 Togekiss
    Edgar, level 67 Nidoking
    Sio, level 66 Golem
    Grizzly, level 61 Ursaring
    Mara, level 45 Pupitar
