    I have no idea.

    Also, I just beat Morty's gym... but not without a cost

    His gengar one-shotted my Flaaffy. I guess you could say he *puts on sunglasses* ate my Dream.

    In any case, I screwed up my one capture for mount mortar, so I don't think I'll be filling both slots any time soon.

    Good pun.

    Do you have any spares in the box?

    That pun was almost worth losing the Flaaffy .

    About the extras: Nope. I have had really bad luck with critical hits and weakening the first pokemon of each area. However, I went and caught a Magnemite just now in the route to the left of the town, since I hadn't been there. Its name is Lorentz.

    Magnemite's are awesome. Do you have a Sinnoh game to get a Magnezone?

    So I'm going to try really, really hard to get a video up by tomorrow with the challenge team. We just have to hope Netflix stops me from watching Breaking Bad.

    I kid, sort of (I am in the middle of Season 2), but I have a few good matches in the bag, so I know I can at least get them recorded.

    EDIT: HERE IT IS NUMBER ONE, THE FIRST OF MANY VIDEOS. CAPS LOCKS FOR COOL

    It amused me that Raticate is actually one of the best guys to use to fight Morty in the game. Immunity to Shadow Ball and access to super-effective Crunch? Awesome.

    I haven't lost a guy in a while. I've only lost 2 ever, I think. I may be too good at Nuzlocke?

    Very nice. I hope you end up using galvantula in the next match.

    For the record, it's pronounced "A (as in "hay")-oat-ers"... which isn't actually as pony-related as I just realised I made that sound, being, in fact, an anacronym for Army Of The Red Spear.

    (Incidently, Lord Death Despoil was well aware than you don't normally use "of" and "the" as part of an anacronym, but there was no way he was going to form an organisation called Ars, which would inevitably been pronouced with an additional "e" at the end...)


    Also, "Aotrs" is sufficiently unique that it makes it very easy to google oneself, which is very handy...!



    Not having seen anything like that software before, one has to ask what the list of moves below the Pokemon were, as there seemed to be more than four - list of all potential moves that species could have or something?

    Or your Pokemon are just in the top percentage of Pokemon

    It reminds me of the time I Nuzlocked Ruby.

    That was the Teambuilder for Pokemon Online 2.0; the way my recording software was set up I didn't want to move the capture area, but if you scroll down you get the list of all the moves that Pokemon can learn and the four you're using. (Btw, I use Pokemon Online to battle, aesoft to animate, and finally Camtasia Studio 7 to record and add audio).

    Yeah the team is doing pretty well so far, the biggest problem is a lack of team synergy (which, to be fair, is the point); however I'm trying to more or less find battles that are interesting while not being lop-sided. Galvantula has had a few good matches, really though I'm making sure everyone has equal chance to shine.

    Why was the other guy using Kadabra?

    I'm guessing since Alakazam is banned from UU, he opted for the less powerful, but legal Kadabra.

    It probably should have occurred to me that Jasmine wasn't the next gym leader before I challenged her. Goodbye, Toxo the Tentacool, sacrificed to sponge an iron tail.

    Her steelix was actually easy to beat, even though I was severely underleved. Edgar's fire blast + wide lens is scary.

    Seriously Jasmine was the easiest gym leader ever. I had Vol my Magmar take out her two magnemites and then Alex my Fergaliter took out the Steelix.


    Even at neutral damage Fireblast won. I see what you mean about scary. And yeah you probably would have won if you went to Chuck first.

    Going to agree with you there (except for Leafeon, but I can't get him in this game).

    Anyway, I got a 6th member for my team: Rogue the red Gyarados. "Rogue" because I tried "Rouge," but years of correcting people on D&D forums has left me unable to see that word correctly.

    Wasn't there a slightly similar issue in the Kanto Region? Once you've gotten through Rock Tunnel, the game kinda opens up a bit, and you might find yourself going to places you aren't ready for just yet....

    Actually, you can skip facing Lt. Surge, IIRC, as he isn't critical until you need to use Fly to get around. Post Rock Tunnel, you need to get the pokeflute but in the meantime can wander through and probably face the Celadon Gym. Facing the Saffron City gym is possible from fairly early, but it's genuinely crazy hard in Gen 1, though easier in Gen 3.

    I don't know if you can get away with it necessarily in a Nuzlocke, as I genuinely dislike them. (They don't feel hard to me in terms of being more challenging, they feel like Fake Difficulty; for my 'challenge runs' I do Type Themed challenges with a 6 man main party, one alternate, and an HM slave Just In Case.)
