    Default Let's Play: Pokemon Leaf Green (Nuzlocke)

    Hello Everybody!

    So, believe it or not, I hadn't really heard about a Nuzlocke challenge before lurking around this section of the forum, and the idea intrigues me. After doing a google search of some of the optional rules and an archive binge on the comic of the originator of the challenge, I've been itching to give it a try. Since I'm on a video Let's Play kick too, I figured I'd make one out of it as well. I'll be starting in earnest next week, for now I'm wondering people's preference on main character gender and name, votes and nicknames for starting pokemon, and any other nicknames for pokemon that eventually join the team.

    Core Rules:
    -Any Pokemon that faints is considered dead
    -May only catch the first Pokemon encountered in an area, no others (No Duplicates)
    -All Pokemon must have nicknames

    Additional Rules:
    -Cannot catch legendary Pokemon
    -May only buy one of each item from each PokeMart
    -Use the same amount of Pokemon as the opponent during a Gym battle or rival battle

    Playlist

    Part 1: Procurring the Professor's Parcel
    Part 2: Rumble with the Rival
    Part 3: Battle with Brock
    Part 4: The Route 3 Rout
    Part 5: Mischief in Mt. Moon
    Part 6: The First to Fall
    Part 7: Return of the Rival
    Part 8: Picking on Picnickers

    ...I like it. Has a subtle sophisticated sound to it. I think if the votes go Charmander and it's a male, I'll definately use it. Thanks!

    I know, you don't see too many YouTube nuzlocke LPs, and those that are out there are mostly from a OOC perspective. I'm hoping I can try to do the commentary from a IC perspective to give that emotional story-feeling that most Nuzlockes have, if I can make the viewers start to care about the trainer and their pokemon I feel I'll have succeeded. If not, at least I'll have played a fun run of a great game under a challenging trial.

    Oh ya, I forgot the rest.

    I vote boy. 'Cause if you have to fake a girl's voice through the entire Let's Play then it'll be more comedic than emotional.

    Oooh, Tesla, I like. Chances are pretty low I'll get a pikachu, but it'll work for any male electric pokemon.

    Names added to database. Thank-You.

    I'll support Tesla for any male electric, but if you get a lady Pikachu, I vote Candy. That was always the name of my Pikachu from my youth.

    For a male caterpie, let's go with Papillion.
    For a female, Margarine, making our party...Butter-free.

    I never really started nicknaming until I got into Platinum, and I felt that nicknames were more warranted with the addition of the GTS, giving me a taste of the world out there. Even then, I didn't nickname until they were level 60+, and a regular on my team. Nuzlocking has expanded that.

    Shed skin only has a 30% chance of working, you should have kept her in there so that maybe it would work, and only switch out if one more turn would kill it.

    Is that how it works? Good to know, thanks.

    You're right, I should've left Magarine in (it's not like the enemy could've attacked), but it's funny, when you know your Pokemon are dead when they hit 0, you get a bit panicky.

    Anyway, thanks for watching.

    So apologies for the double post, but I have now officially caught up and am here to offer my infinite wisdom.*

    First things first, you've been very lucky so far. Thank the RNG for she smiles kindly, and pray that me writing this does not incur her wrath. That said, be more careful with your pokemon. Keep track of how much damage the enemy is dealing on an average attack, and multiply it by three. If your pokemon's health drops to less than or equal to that number it's time to pull them out. Do NOT pull them out if the enemy has a good chance of knowing pursuit. In that case, follow medical advice on how to administer a potion. If your health drops below the reccomended level, but you are confident you can take the pokemon out first you may do so. Confidence follows the SAD principle. Speed to go first, accuracy to hit, and damage to KO. If you are confident all three of these things are guaranteed, then you will never be sad.

    There will be plenty of enemies which must be avoided in Nuzlockes while being pushovers in the normal game, among them as you learned in your latest outing is any enemy that carries the risk of poison. Avoid poison early on, for it is the plague upon all Nuzlockes (up until black and white.) Nidorans, zubats, weedles, all must either be run from or dealt with using appropriate measures (special attacks against nidorans, super effective attacks against zubats and weedles.)

    Finally, we come to the topic of names. A good way to go if you want to use voting is to look up what routes you will be visiting ahead of time and posting a list of possible pokemon for us to look over. There are other ways, but this seems to have the most success.

    Other than that, I'm really enjoying what you've done so far, here's to your continued success!

    *Xondoure cannot legally be defined as infinite or wise. Any claims as such are purely for the purposes of comedy and should not be misconstrued as the truth. Following Xondoure's advice does not make him, or parties affiliated with him responsible for future actions.

    Isn't it more of a 2.5 times, then 3. Regular hits can be between 85%-100% Crits can be 170-200.

    Thanks for some great advice, glad you've enjoyed so far.

    Yeah, I know I've been pretty lucky. I've had Poseidon out there a few times a bit longer than I should've (HE WAS IN THE RED YOU IDIOT! WHY DID YOU LEAVE HIM OUT THERE!?). I'll need to be more careful in the future. Though, once I train Pokey up, I should have something to fight poison types with, because, correct me if I'm wrong, poison types are immune to poison? So I can always have her front and centre when that's a risk. I also plan to use repels religiously once I've obtained access to them in Pewter.

    As far as the nickname, I will probably in the future do a look up and list the areas and candidates for a new team mate. It's not really voting so much as looking for suggestions. Sometimes I do have a good name in mind I'll probably use (if I had gotten a male caterpie for example, despite some good suggestions I was kinda set on going with Absalom), but other times, as with Pokey, I'm a bit at a loss. The only polling I did was for the starting pokemon.

    I was going to suggest the send out Spivey first thing.

    Also you are aware that Butterfree is doubly weak to rock types right. So it might have been slaughtered out there.

    Also Onix is doubly weak to water types.


    I would totally be a water type gym leader.

    Hmmm, I did realize that The flying side would be weak to rock, forgot about the bug side. In fairness though, I think only Onix has a rock attack, and only one, so risky but not horribly stupid. Her speed and confusion being able to bypass the rock resistance really made her the only good back-up. But in the end, Poseidon with Bubble handled it well.

    And...Why would Onix be double weak to water? It's a pure rock type, it should only have x2 vs water, not the x4 of rock/ground.

    I'm actually not sure what gym type I would pick myself. Probably Steel type or water. Or normal.

    Onyx is rock/ground. Steelix is steel/ground.
