Hello there!

Some of you may already know that the forums come with a built-in trophy system, and that we've added a fair number of challenge-related achievements to it. Currently, these have to be applied manually by a staff member - and we can only really do that if you tell us when you get them, which isn't usually the first thing on someone's mind when they update their run!

In the interest of making things more intuitive, post in this thread if you've earned a trophy and we'll apply it to your account. This includes trophies for runs you finished on zetaboards and tapatalk, so if you pulled off some crazy nuzlocke stunts before it was cool, you can still get points for it now.

You can find the full list of trophies here, the FAQ thread here, and the Nuzlocke Ratings site where most of these trophies are from here. Please include a link to the run where you earned the trophy as well as the trophy you want us to give you.

Howdy! I'm Toyo the Toyo. So this is what the inside of a Pokedex is like...
Alright, let me see how many I think I have had between this forum and the last one...

Greater Banishment: Toyo Replays Pokémon Delta
- Gotta Catch 'em All
- Ooo, Shiny
- [REDACTED] Hall of Famer

UCL:
- Blaine as Day
- Scientist
- Kanto Hall of Famer
- Johto Hall of Famer
- Hit Me With Your Best Screenshot (i mean technically this wasn't the first but it works for this achievement technically)

Other Nuzforum Events:
- Kalos Hall of Famer (War of the Nations)
- Alola Hall of Famer (Sun/Moon Communitylocke)
- Logged and Loaded (literally just pick either of those)

Let's Talk Procyon and Deneb:
- The Road Less Traveled (technically? it's only the six gym beta so i'll let you guys personally judge this one, and if it doesn't count i'll go for it again when the full version's out)

(also hearts from those events, and spades from cool or cruel if you get those figured out)

I SWALLOW SLUDGE TO TRANSFORM MYSELF
Alright, I'm gonna claim a bunch here. There's a couple that I'm not completely sure about, so I'll include them and leave those up to your discretion.

Mistymeanor - I defeat Misty using only Wartortle's Bite and Mega Kick in this update of my globetrotter run.

Noah's Roark - This update of my globetrotter run.

Fair Fight - In this update I fight Juan with a team of 5.

Maylene Mean Fighting Machine and Wake Up, Sheeple! - In this update I beat Maylene using only Growth and Giga Drain, and Wake with only a Staraptor and a Roselia.

Reconstruction - The FireRed leg of my globetrotter run (signature) technically counts. I wiped to the second round of the Elite Four, then made a new team and took it out deathless. I don't know if that counts on account of how late in the game that happened, though.

No Dupes! - The Globetrotter run in my signature technically counts. I played all five Kanto games, and any Pokemon that was on my elite four team was banned from future runs. However, the Gen 1 games weren't documented on the forums, so I technically don't have *proof*. Also, Pokemon weren't banned if they died mid-run. So some Pokemon like Beedrill were used for brief periods of time in multiple runs. I'm throwing this out there, but if it doesn't count I'd understand.

Ooo, Shiny! - I caught a shiny Squirrap (fakemon) in this update of my Clover run.

Scientist and Logged and Loaded - Back on the old forums, I did this Mono-Poison written log.

Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and [REDACTED] Hall of famers - The runs in my signature. Technically for the canon regions, the run itself isn't completed, but I did beat documented Nuzlockes of those games.

Hit Me With Your Best Screenshot - The Clover run in my signature, which I just completed today.

Bird Keeper - I'm pretty sure this one won't count, but I'll include it just in case. I started This Mono-Flying Nuzlocke on the old forums. I never finished documenting it; however, I did finish the run itself in-game. I'm not sure if that counts, and I don't have a screenshot proof or anything. But if it helps, my final team was Xatu/Staraptor/Zapdos/Togekiss/Crobat/Dodrio.

Alright, let's go again.

- Watercress Salad with Cilantro and Chili Flakes - Defeat Chili, Cress, or Cilan using only your starter (defeated Cress with Litwick, that IS my starter in this run, so I hope it counts)
- Queen Elesabeth II - Defeat Elesa without any of your Pokemon ever getting paralyzed (defeated with Krokorok, which you also can get at this point in the vanilla game, AND no Static activation happened during the fight)

Back because it might be a bit until I can cash in more of these:
Superless Emerald
Back to Mono - Sceptile, Dusclops (+Sudowoodo after the league, but that also fits)
New Is Always Better - Sceptile, Dusclops (since Sudowoodo was caught after the Hall of Fame)
Elementary, My Dear Wattson - Grovyle sweep
Flannery O'Verheat - Sceptile sweep
Team Four Star - Sceptile, Dusclops (a Zigzagoon and Wailmer were caught as HM slaves, but never used in battle)

The following depend on rules adjudication:
Fair Fight - Does having less pokemon as the gym leader qualify as "only as many"? i.e. A single mon vs Roxanne's two, or two mons vs Juan's five.
Three's a Crowd - Again Sceptile and Dusclops (a Zigzagoon and Wailmer were caught as HM slaves, but never used in battle)

I did a thing and got...

1: Post a Galar Region Nuzlocke (Conqueror of the Galar Region)
2: Post a completed written log (And So It Was Written)
3, 4, 5: Use at most 3, 4 and 5 Pokemon on a team (I asked, you get all 3 for a 3-mon run) (Fiverr, Team Four Star, Three's A Crowd)
6: Use only Fairy-types (Fairy-Tale Girl)
7: Beat the champion with no HP loss, no items besides held items and more than one Pokemon used in the fight (Untouchable)
8: Rebuild from a loss of more than half of the team, then have no more deaths (Reconstruction)
9: Debatable, but... Use only Dual-Typed Pokemon. (I'm fairly sure this counts, since everything evolved into a dual-type, nothing died while monotype, and I never used that Spritzee.) (Dual of the Fates)
10: Fought Nessa and Kabu with only 3 Pokemon in the party. (Fair Fight)

Proof for about half of them is in my link, the only one that really needs taking on faith is that Togekiss and Weezing bit it against Rose

Oh boy here we go

For the Kanto portion of my UCL Grass Sololocke, I earned the following:

Dual of the Fates (only use dual-typed Pokemon): Venusaur, Farfetch'd and Lapras are all dual-typed if you want to count my HM slaves too.
You've Got a Friend in Me (use your starter to sweep an E4 member/the Champion): the run was a Venusaur solo, setup was only used on Blue though I can't really prove this so feel free to X: Doubt
D.S. al Koga (defeat Koga by making one of his Pokemon use Selfdestruct): I also can't prove this since I didn't take a screenshot, though I did have this reaction yesterday on Discord. Feel free to X: Doubt here as well
The Dark Knight (in every fight against your rival, use your starter to take on their starter): it was a Venusaur solo so I had no choice.
Blaine as Day (fight Blaine without a Burn Heal in your inventory): I did actually take pictures of my inventory for this one, you can find them in the update.
Don Giovanni (sweep Giovanni with a Poison type Pokemon): Venusaur is dual Grass/Poison.
Gardener (complete a Grass type monolocke): It's my whole thing for this UCL.
Kanto Hall of Famer (successfully complete a documented run of a Kanto game): Yes.
Graveyard, Who? (complete a deathless run): My HM slaves got knocked out to prevent double battles but apparently that's fine

I'm back again lads with my Johto portion of UCL. This time, not nearly as many accidental trophies.

Back to Mono since Meganium is a Grassy lass
Johto Hall of Famer
Hit Me With Your Best Screenshot
assuming you don't count the entire UCL as a run

Now, there's are two trophies I technically qualify for but also don't feel it's fair to give me, Extreme Set Mode and Team Effort. I obviously never switch out during the run and only Meganium/Venusaur were on my team during the Elite Four matches since I put my HM users in the box, but since this isn't a conscious decision I made as opposed to legitimately challenging/handicapping myself, I don't feel as though I should get them on this particular type of run. Just thought I'd throw them out there regardless.

I SWALLOW SLUDGE TO TRANSFORM MYSELF
Alright, here I come with another huge dump of trophies to claim.

The Ocean Blue - a Blue version Water monolocke
In this run, I accomplished:
Sailor - It was a Water monolocke, and I completed it.
Graveyard, who? - No deaths.
Three's a crowd - the fourth slot was only ever occupied by Dux, the Cut/Fly slave who never battled. Also, it's still unclear to me if you have to do the 3, 4, and 5 slot trophies separately, so. Let me know I guess.
Wildlife preserver - The only "wild" Pokemon I defeated was Marowak, which is required to do for plot progression and you can't catch it so does it really count?
Back to Mono - I only used Blastoise, Vaporeon, and Kingler, which are all pure Water types.
High-Five - If I understand the system correctly, then Set mode + no items in battle + monolocke is a difficulty of 8, which qualifies.
Surge protector - My entire team was weak to Electric.
Amerika the Beautiful - It was a Water monolocke, so. Yeah.
D.S. al Koga - His Weezing used Self-Destruct in update #4.


Gardenia of Eden - Gardenia swept with Eterna Forest's Misdreavus in Pearl.

BYRONICLE - Byron beaten using only Blissey's Psychic and Thunderbolt, and Octillery's Aurora Beam.

Sinnoh Hall of Famer - I cleared both Diamond and Pearl in the linked Globetrotter run.

Bugsy Mogues - Done here.

Whitneysing a murder and Absolutely Mortyfying - In this update of my globetrotter: Whitney defeated with just Croconaw and Quagsire (both level 20), and Morty's Gengar struggles to death.

How much wood would Chuck chuck?, Smooth Jas, and Small Pryce to pay - In this update of my globetrotter: I defeat Chuck by using Strength 21 times, sweep Jasmine with a Togetic, and sweep Pryce with a Corsola (BST 380 in gen 4).

I can see Clairly now - Accomplished in this update of my globetrotter, with help from X items and Spikes.
