Author Topic: TMK Pokémon Crystal Nuzlocke Challenge  (Read 13897 times)

« on: May 14, 2013, 04:10:52 PM »
Yesterday, I started a Nuzlocke Challenge with a ROM of Pokémon Crystal (since my cartridge recently died). Just for fun, I also documented my play to be presented here.


Oh boy here we go. There's gonna be pixels. And little pokemans. And it's gonna be a good time what with all the pokéballs and the berries and the gambling run by the mob.



For the sake of accuracy, I'll pick boy. Usually I'd pick a girl character, but for this particular LP I wanted it to more closely reflect me for... reasons.

Alright! Let's go Pokemans-ing.


I get the feeling we're not going to be friends.


Meeting with Professor Navi. Now I have to go walk around and deliver his mail, because apparently in this world full of computers that can store objects as data and tamable ferrets who can teleport, the central mailing system doesn't exist. Shortly after this he gets an email, data sent over a network cable. Go figure.

So now I get my first Pokémon! Because when  you send a ten year old to deliver your package in the middle of the night through tall grass full of 3 foot long poisonous spiders, you should also give him a newborn to keep him safe. So what's a good name for my first companion? I think that'd be fairly obvious.


Can't use numbers. Darn. Always thought Briguy92 reminded me of a sentient cucumber, didn't you? He's a Chikorita now.


Say Hello to my first party member.


Deliver the dumb egg to the dumb egg guy.


Oh. Hey buddy.




Briguy92's first battle! Go him. I have faith.



Butts were kicked. It was a good time. ??? shall never again haunt CherryGrove with his unfashionable haircut.

Anyway, back to the lab! Where there's a Scooby-Doo level of intrigue and mystery.



So this guy. He'll be bothering me constantly without provocation. He'll become a regular irritant striking at regular intervals to be as annoying as he can. Why yes, I did happen to get his name.

(I tease. Weegee is a fine gentleman.)


Alright! Now let's start this Nuzlocke challenge off right.



My first caught companion lies somewhere in these bushes. C'moooooooon, Hoothoot. Give me a Hoothooot. Hoothoot or a Spinarack.


...

Well that wasn't what I wanted at all.

I found a pokémon that was completely the opposite of what I wanted, shows up everywhere, and can't easily be shaken off. I think his name is obvious.




Alright. Second chance. C'moooon, Hoothoot. Or really just something else.


Now this game is just intentionally trying to mess with me. He shall be named accordingly.




New Route, new Buddy. If this is another Rattata, I'm going to bludgeon the entire population of Rhode Island out of spite.


Well that was unexpected. I didn't even know you could find those here. Still, it's not bad. Really could be pretty useful.


Named accordingly.



Alright, now we're getting somewhere.


Or not. I'd hardly call one level 2 Rattata to be a battle, but I'll take my wins where I can get them.


Oh look at that. Briguy92 is becoming useful.


A new route, a new Pokémon. No expectations here. Could be anything.


Yeeees.

Yeeeeeeeeees



YEEEEEEEEEEEEEES

Look at that. The game decided to be nice to me.

So nice.


And here we are. Right there at the first gym. Now, I time to train up and take it on!

...Next time. For now, I'll just stand and stare at this gym.

Silly Weegee. You're the rival.

Your decision to name your Pokemon after the forum denizens is a nice touch.
Luigison: Question everything!
Me: Why?

Something tells me Deezer is going to be the Legendary one.

Whoops, I sort of skimmed past the middle bit.

So I'm a Hoothoot? Not the one I would have picked, but at least I can fly. And flying is awesome. :)

Yes. Good luck with this, and keep us posted. :)

Right then. Let's continue.


Ah, Sprout Tower. The tower full of Bellsprouts. Accurate, if a little boring. Who named this place, anyway?


Ah. Monks. That would explain it. Never really pictured monks as being the type to go cockfighting with their garden salads.


Take that, regard for my fellow man! Now I can take this victory onward to beat up all your friends. Like any normal 10 year old.

Oh! Sprout Tower is a new place! I can catch something new here! LIKE A BELLSPROUT THAT WOULD BE SO COOL


Are you kidding me.


Are you completely serious right now.


This is ridiculous. I'm beating up this level 4 Rattata with my level 4 Rattata.


I didn't even know you could catch something other than a Bellsprout in Sprout Frickin Tower.



Noooooooooooooooooo
oooooooooo.

Oh well. You died as you lived, A. Being disappointing.


And now you have a replacement. So after a valiant battle with a level four male Rattata, I've lost my level four male Rattata and replaced him with a level four male Rattata.


Anyway.


Nothing like stealing medicine from a monastery to cheer me up.


I'm sure this means something. To someone. Presumably.


What the heck kind of name for a monk is Edmond.


BP seen here in one of the rarest activities for its species: becoming useful.


I wish I knew how to quit you.


Boy. Trainer Joey is actually a terrible trainer. Go figure.


I would just like to take a moment here to point out this Hoppip. I was off grinding, and I came accross a Hoppip who only knew Splash, Synthesis, and Tail Whip. The only things it could do were nothing, heal itself, and lower my defense. How on earth did it survive this long.



It was a this point that Joey called me for the second time this play-through to battle me. At which point, PaperLuigi proved his worth by showing he is among the top  percentage of all Rattata.


I decided to go investigate what was actually in town at this point. I found this young man.


You mean if I'd caught a Bellsprout in Sprout Tower I could have an Onix right now?

Great.


A new Route, a new party member to be found. This guy just straight up gave me a rock. Just "Hey, you. Take this rock."

Let's go look in some tall grass.

AW HECK YEAH BELLSPROUT


DELICIOUS


You are an Onix waiting to happen my friend.


Yes. Giiiive me your rooooocks.


We had some good times, Fodder.

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNEcQS4tXgQ" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNEcQS4tXgQ</a>


Mmm yeah. Sweet delicious rocks.


C'mere, rocks.


Welp. That's a terrible name I can never change. Oh well.


New Route, new buddy. I miss A Fodder.


Except no wait I can't. No new Pokémans until you've beaten the gym says... this guy. Who is this guy? You're not a cop. You can't tell me where I can and can't go. Why do you get to be the arbiter of preteen foot traffic? Who vested you this authority? Who even has the authority to do that?


Accepting Joey's phone number may have been a poor decision.


Time to go beat Sprout Tower.

NEXT TIME, ON TMK NUZLOCKE

This is an awesome thread. I'll be watching this with great interest.

Loving your story so far. :D

I hope Toad proves to be useful. :B
