Six months ago I was an active member of the community for about five minutes. I disappeared into a deep deep deep slumber. Or as I call it: "Real Life, Am I Right?"
And then, I decided to return. What brought me to that decision? No idea. RANDOMIZER WATER MONOTYPE LOCKE GO!

1. Catch the first Water type Pokemon you encounter in a route
2. If a gift Pokemon/trade is a water type and I have the way to get it - I can get it and use it, and it doesn't count as a catch
3. Shiny clause is on, but if a shiny Pokemon isn't a water type, it will sit in the box of shame forever
4. Dupes Clause, I guess? It's a randomizer run, but you know, whatever
5. If a Pokemon has the potential to evolve into a water type, I can use it
6. Faint = Death
7. Must nickname all Pokemon
8. No HM slaves unless it stops me from moving forward. HM slaves must not be used in battle
9. Run starts when I get Pokeballs
10. Run ends when I rematch the league

Change Impossible Evos
Starters stay the same
Randomize both Requested & Given Pokemon in trades
Update Moves
Random Trainer Pokemon (no legendaries)
Wild Pokemon - Random, no legendaries, Random Held Items, legendaries are randomized to other legendaries
Random TM moves
Move Tutor moves - Random
Random field items
Give national dex at start

Part 1 - This page



Hello to you too Mr. Oak.



I NEED THAT DUCK!!!
GIVE ME THE DUCK!



Where is my duck?
I think I scared him or something.



Oh!
Will he give me my duck?



This is not a duck!
This is his lame grandson!



I am going to get my own duck.
It will be the best duck.
With cool duck abilities.



I know.
I am looking for my duck.



Duck!



Not a duck, but a turtle.
Still good.



What.



What.

~literally four years of tackling later~



Good start not gonna lie.

~One parcel get later~



Challenge start!



Route 1 catch.
Sea Dragon friend is best friend.



Route 22 catch.
Frog is the best frog.
Only green frog.



Post grinding team.



What.



What!



What?



Route 2 catch.
Friend shaped friend.



Viridian Forest catch!



The gods have been kind.



It was a quick one, but we reached the edge of the forest.
We hadn't encountered any problems (so far) and we managed to get some decent catches.
So, see you next time!

"Decent" seems like the understatement of the year.

@Electro - knowing my luck and experience - those would probably be my last decent catches in this game.
Also knowing my luck - they would die in critical moments when I need them the most.



Post grinding team.
Now to face Brock.
Or Bwater.
Or Belectric.
Or Bwhatevertherandomizergavehim.



I guess starting with a decent team paid off.
Let's thank the Randomizer Gods for being kind to me.
And the TM we got is...



Not too bad I must admit.
At least it's a water move.
Unfortunately no one can learn this move.



Some Route 3 trainer battles let us evolve Surtle into Wartortle.
As for encounter...



Why yes, I do play too much Civ lately.
How did you know?
Also, did I just win the run, since electric types can't touch me anymore?



I taught her Octazooka, since I believe it might be somewhat useful to me for now.



Spent 500$ on a Pokemon I can't use.



When I was younger, someone told me that drowning is the most humane way to kill an animal.
Now as an adult I understand it's wrong.
But that sheep is shameful and shall suffer the consequences of his existence.



Mt. Moon catch.
Don't worry, Cleo is fine.
I switched to Nombre to take care of that Swampert and managed to heal Cleo in the Pokemon Center.



Now I don't know if it will end up being a Kabuto, but here's to hoping for one (unless I catch a wild one).
This is why I'll get the Old Ember as well.
Worst case scenario - Aerodactyl will have to learn how to Dive.



Route 4 catch.
Yes, I have a Politoed, but this little fella will evolve into Poliwrath as soon as I get a Water Stone.

Next part we will turn down for What and Misty~~~



The team ~~~

Keeping Quagsire is a good choice.

As someone who tore through Team Rocket with one in my HG run, I’d say yes!

@DistortionLocke - Quagsire is so stupidly strong. Young me who didn't like it deserves to be hit on her nose lol

@Electro - Quagsire is plain evil.



There can be only one water master in this region.



A water-type gym leader who doesn't use water types?
Huh!
Shame on you!
And shame on your fish!



No...
You can't redeem yourself now, Misty.
It's too late for you!



Ummm...
Sorry?



But at what cost?



You were meant for so much more.
You shall be remembered in our hearts.
May you rest in peace.



Cleopatra
lvl. 7-20
Killed by Misty's Seaking.



Technically, Swampert is a bigger Quagsire, so we should be fine.



What?



What?



Depends: Do you have water Pokemon?



Dude, no need to be so pushy...
Just answer the question.



Ok.



Yeah, I know,
But what's the offer?



You really should work on your marketing.



Route 24 catch.



Route 25 catch!



One pointless sidequest later.

No! Cleopatra! I will never recover! Never!

Also, Swampert is not a big Quagsire! Swamper has good typing and good stats rounded out by a move pool that takes a long time and several HMs to get really good-

Swampert is a bigger Quagsire.

@Electro - the sooner you accept it, the sooner you will find true happiness in your life.

@DistortionLocke - [confused badger noises]

After looking around Route 6 and not finding any water types, I looked through the game files.
As of now, I can't get a water type catch, but we will be back soon ~~~



Back to route 6 we goooo!



:3spooky:



You know what's coming up next.



What.



What?!
Anyway, now we are up to the real challenge.



Can any of my Pokemon learn Cut?



Nope, they can't.
Can any of my PC mons learn Cut?



No, they can't.
Time to get ourselves a SLAVE.



Readers meet Slave, Slave meet readers.
You have no purpose in life but cut trees and be forgotten.
To the Gym we go!



Defeating you.
Duh.



To be honest - this is the most underwhelming battle we had so far.
Ludicolo flinched Gardevoir to oblivion and Cloyster's Aurora Beam is OP.
Shame, really.
The TM we got, btw, contained Scratch.
Most underwhelming part of the game.
Possibly the most underwhelming update to go with it as well.

"You have no purpose in life but to cut trees and be forgotten" is such a raw line, and I can't believe it was used on an Aipom.

Misty: causes the first death of the run
Surge: My TM is Scratch

@Electro - Sorry for the Aipom hate, but it's not a water Pokemon, so its fate has already been determined. Don't blame me, blame the rules.



Route 11 and Diglett's Cave catches.



I dislike you very much.
You can keep your HM!
I will be fine!
Nerd.



Who needs an HM when you can have a stone?



Route 9 catch.
Unfortunately, Route 10 doesn't have any catches for us until I get Surf or a better Rod.
You would think that someone who has ONLY water Pokemon (and a monkey) will be able to Surf freely, but I guess it doesn't work this way.
Oh well.



I am beginning to see a pattern here.
I don't like this pattern.

Sorry for the confusion with that meme. I was mourning Cleopatra. 😢
