Hi! This is my first time using the new forums (I had a few unfinished runs on the old forums a few years back) so I figured I'd start with something simple;

This will be a pretty casual screenshot-based nuzlocke run of Pokemon Platinum, with the following rules:

1) I can only catch the first pokemon I encounter. Since it's a monotype run, I have three chances to find a water type or pokemon that EVOLVES into a water type. Otherwise, I do not catch anything on that route.
2) If something faints, it's dead (duh)
3) Dupes clause is not in effect; if I'm trying to find a Buizel and I run into another Bidoof, I have to catch it.
4) I'm allowed to use pokemon that aren't water types but evolve into water types, but I'm not allowed to use them in any major battles (aka gyms, rival battles or galactic admins) until they've evolved. Water type pokemon that lose the typing after they evolve (aka Surskit) can't be evolved.
5) Limited to three healing items per battle.
6) My pokemon can only be a maximum of three levels higher than the next gym leader's highest leveled pokemon (this is so gyms with an advantage don't wipe the floor with me, but I'm pretty much only doing this for Gardenia and maybe Candice)
7) Nickname EVERYTHING (for funsies)
8) No repels until after cleared the latest gym (for example no repels in Iron Island until i’ve beaten Byron)
9) I have to fight and kill every legendary I find (MAYBE i’ll exclude water type legendaries we’ll see)
10) No action replay except to enable event legendaries, I’m gonna try and kill Arceus with a Seaking and you’ll just have to accept that
11) To finish the run I have to beat the elite four in a rematch and kill arceus

With that said, let's get this show on the road!

hi
Ooh, this sounds like it'll be tough. Magikarp iirc is a 100% encounter with the Old Rod so you should be set for Gardenia, but it'll still be a challenge. Here's hoping you have a Gastrodon or Whiscash for Volkner : p

Actually, that’s a good point! I could technically do that, but since Surskit is locked behind the aftergame I probably won’t be using it anyway haha

ye magikarp is 100% wjth the old rod, the problem is i’ll have to switch magikarp in and out constantly so i run the risk of it getting Pursuit’d to death or something.....
volker probably wont be an issue tho!! even if i dont get those two theres also the whiscash line

Probably one of the dumbest yet luckiest Pokemon. Is terrible at socialising, yet has friends anyway.
ooh, good luck. switch grinding magikarp till 20 sounds like it'll be a pain, but you can do it!

Part One! I revised the rules a little bit so they're less confusing (also from here on out im posting replies in each update)

Poopawman: surskit ➡ everstone?
Yeah, that technically works! Surskit is post-game so I doubt I'll even be using it, but I'll probably add something like this to the rules next time I do a monotype run.

surfe: Ooh, this sounds like it'll be tough. Magikarp iirc is a 100% encounter with the Old Rod so you should be set for Gardenia, but it'll still be a challenge. Here's hoping you have a Gastrodon or Whiscash for Volkner : p
magikarp is a 100% encounter so i'll definitely be fine there, i just have to be really careful with switch grinding since Pursuit exists.....
volkner probably wont be an issue tho!! even if i dont get those two theres also the whiscash line

lineonthepaper: ooh, good luck, switch grinding magikarp sounds like a pain, but you can do it!
Thanks! It's gonna be a long, arduous and....very time consuming journey but as long as I'm smart about it (and don't send it out against pokemon with pursuit) i'll be safe.


(Neat, just started the game and I already found my first fossil)




It's me!



Here I am!



Good idea, I'm sure it won't go horribly




(One long dialogue sequence later....)



(Fun fact, I have LITERALLY chosen Turtwig every single time I replay a DPPT game except when I got Platinum on release day. I've never actually used Piplup in a gen 4 game outside of cheating / trading with friends later in the game.)



.....this feels WRONG.



Bring it on!
(It was here that I realized that choosing Piplup means my rival gets Turtwig. This game is trying to make me regret doing a monotype run. Joke's on YOU, game! I have to use Psyduck and Bidoof, I ALREADY regret it!)



Alrighty, let's do this.

Huh? Where am I? This isn't the lab. I'm guessing you're my new trainer then?

You can talk?

You can understand me????

Let's save the questions for later; we should probably focus on winning first. Pound him into oblivion!

Got it.



Excellent work!

Eh, he only hit me twice. I've seen tougher.

Really?

No. I've lived in a fishbowl my entire life.

Wait, what?

You're gullible.

HAH, you got me. I'm Jan, by the way.

Cool, I'm....uhhh.....

You don't have a name?

I guess not. You're my first trainer after all.



I guess it's up to me then! I'll call you.....



Neat. How the hell do you pronounce it though?

No clue. Don't worry about it.

(I'm a doofus and I forgot to take a screenshot of her stats until after I named her. Whoops!)



So what now?

Shrug. We could try and collect some gym badges? There's a rock-type gym a few towns over.

Sounds fun! But also sounds dangerous....shouldn't I see if my mom's cool with me leaving first?

You're an RPG protagonist. I wouldn't worry about it.

Can't argue with that logic. Away we go! Let's catch some teammates with these pokeballs (which I bought earlier and forgot to screenshot because I'm an idiot)



Huzzah! Our first catch. I'll call you Hazel!

Hello! Very pleased to meet you.

I'm Kjell. Sorry for the, uh, head trauma.

Don't worry about it! No hard feelings!



Hm....I thought you were only allowed to use water types?

Eh, this thing's going to be our HM01-slave. Away, Taxi! To the PC box!

Taxi?

Corviknight didn't fit.

What the hell is a Corviknight?

No clue!



Oh, don't worry about it, I just caught two pokemon a few minutes ago-



NO WHAT ARE YOU DOING STOPPP-


[One unskippable tutorial later]

Jeez. I thought she'd never leave!

Me too.



At least she left the pokemon she caught behind for us!

It's another Bidoof, though.

Yeah, fair enough.....should we just release her?

I don't think you should! Let's name her and deposit her in the PC! Just because you won't be using her right now, doesn't mean she won't help us out later on! You should try appreciating the positive things in your life instead of dwelling on all the negatives.

Good point! Y'know Hazel, we've only known each other for a few minutes, but I can already tell we're going to be best friends. I don't think anything could tear us apart-



>Unaware



Bye Hazel! I bet you and Taxi will get along just fine!

What?!

We'll come back for youuuuuu.........!

Uh....are we actually going to-

Absolutely not. Let's get going.



Welcome to the team, Pecan! I'm Jan, and this is Kjell!


...............doof? *CHOMP*

Did she just-

Yes, she just ate a rock.

And we-

And we replaced Hazel with her.

Oh boy.......

Unaware indeed.


Alright, that's a wrap! The next update should be done in a few days! Seeya then

Actually, if you're unaware of somebody else being unaware, does that make one of you actually aware?

Everyone is already unaware man, we like, totally live in a society man.....its real deep.
Also I'm glad you caught the reference! I was gonna name her Effie but then I remembered Fates sucks.



Alright, let's get you two trained up.

Doof.

I'll keep an eye on the rat.

Good idea. Just keep her away from anything that she could accidentally swallow.

Have you SEEN how big a Bidoof's mouth is? I'm pretty sure she could swallow ME.

....Doof.

....Why are you looking at me like that? Don't get any funny ideas, you bucktoothed ignoramus.

(One grinding session later)



Excellent work, you two!


Naturally. I'm not really a big fan of this new attack though.

It's just bubbles! Don't be such a baby.

Have YOU ever had to spit bubbling liquids from your mouth? On command?

....yuck. Good point.

(Also Pecan learned Defense Curl)



What the-

Our first real fight! Let's rough 'em up.

Wait wait wait I'm not ready yet!!

Don't worry about me. I can handle this.



See? Nothing to worry about.



Heads up, Kjell. More trainers incoming.

Gotcha. Pecan, wanna lend me a hand?

Doof.

I....I'll take that as a yes?





Doof!

Oh please. Gimme a REAL challenge.

I don't know why I was worried about you two. You're a couple of naturals!




She's.....she's mocking me, isn't she.


In your defense there's, like, literally only one species of pokemon you're allowed to catch right now.




I didn't do anything?

Doof.

I agree. FUCK cops.



Wow! Totally useless!



Wow! Totally useful!



Um.

Hm. Let's get out of here.



Sure couldn't wait to use that guy's old rod, huh?


SSSHH! Talk quieter.

K. Why are we whispering anyway?


I don't want to scare the fish away. This next catch is VERY important.

It's an old rod. What are you expecting to catch, anyway?



....something like this, actually! Perfect! Pecan, if you knock this thing out you lose out on oxygen privileges for a week.

Doof!



WOOHOOOOOO!!!!

Can we NOT scream so loud? What's the big deal, anyway? It's just a Magikarp.

Don't you understand, Kjell? Once she evolves she'll be crucial for the 2nd gym! After all, If I Can't Get A Gyarados Before Gardenia, I'm Screwed! *wink*

....What is wrong with you? Why are you winking like that?

I was sitting on that dock for so long that my eyes dried up. Please get help.



Hey, you!

Me?

Yeah, I'm talking to you, pipsqueak! What's the big idea, snagging a girl out of the water like that?!

Oh, sorry! I can put you back if you want.

Eh, eh, don't worry about it. I've moved on from that dinky ol' pond anyway.

That was quick. Also, I think that was technically part of the ocean, not a pond.

*Sigh* You just wouldn't understand. Being the undisputed toughest fish in the sea is tough, y'know!

No one was asking you-

I'm under a lotta pressure. Got tons of nasty brutes gunning for my position as leader of the bunch, y'know?

She's ignoring me, isn't she.

Just last week, a Sharpedo tried to mooch on one of my gals. Y'know what I did to him? I left him seein' stars, that's what!

She already sounds pretty tough! Told you catching a Magikarp was a good idea, Kjell.

....wait a minute. Check her moveset real quick.

Huh?



....huh.


What was that about being the "toughest fish in the sea"?

Aheh....well, uh....I may have exaggerated a....LITTLE bit here and there....

Doof.

I agree. Let's throw her to the Wingulls. Blood for the blood god!

Knock it off, you two. In all seriousness, I'm still fine with releasing you if you want, Sushi.

Wait, wait!! Alright, alright. Wanna know the truth? I've been training for years now, trying my hardest to evolve. Everyone looks down on Magikarps like we're sacks of garbage! Wild pokemon see us as prey, humans see us as easy EXP. I figured if I trained hard enough, I'd grow strong enough to defend myself and my gals. Heh, what a naive little guppy I am. I couldn't even learn tackle, let alone evolve.

Yeah yeah, enough with the sob story. Yo Jan, are you gonna toss her back or what? I wanna see some carnage.

....

I know I wasted your chance to catch something actually useful, like a Tentacool or Mantyke or something. If you wanna release me, go right ahead. I won't protest.

Why would I release you? After all, you said you wanted to evolve, didn't you?

Huh?

Stick with me and train with us, at least for a little bit. If you help us with our pokemon league challenge, I'll help you evolve. If you want, I can even release you once we're done. Deal?

.....

(Uh....are you sure about this?)

(Absolutely.)

....DEAL.

Excellent! Now, I won't be using you in direct battles for now. I want you to watch Kjell and Pecan first, so you can get an idea of what to do. Then we'll work on teaching you some new moves.

Fine by me.

(Aaaand that's a wrap! Sorry it's such a short one, I have a really busy week coming up so I wanted to get an update out beforehand. Part three should be done sometime next weekend! Seeya then.

Part Three! Just as a heads up, updates are gonna be short (I'll try and beat Roark in Update 4 but no promises), I want to maintain weekly updates but college is already kicking my ass so I think small frequent updates would be the best way to handle it.

Aww damn it, that was nice Jan.

Thanks dude! I'm only two updates in and i'm already back on my "overdramatic writing" bullshit. Now I have to make sure Sushi doesn't die. (Pecan is fair game though)

Poopawman: Sushi will low-key become my favorite character.
I'm glad you like her! I really hope she lives through this nuzlocke, "snappy and rude character who grows as a person" characters are my favorite to write. (Also I LOVE gyarados)



Did you guys hear something?

Gavin is standing right in front of you. Are you not paying attention?

Oh, sorry. I got distracted. This poketch is so cool! It makes it hard to pay attention to anything around me.

Wow. We really do live in a society....



Alright, fine. Let's get this over with. Pecan, go! Kjell, you can handle his Turtwig.

Uh....you do realize it might have grass type moves now, right?

....oh shit. Change of plans! Kjell, you're up first.



Use your bubbles!

BLEEEEEEEEGHHHHHHHHHHHHH.



Critical hit, nice! Good job Kjell.

I feel sick....



Doof!

No pressure, Pecan. You just need to make sure not to die since you're the only one that isn't weak to grass type moves. Good luck!

D-doof.



There we go! Good job, Pecan.

Y'know, he didn't use a single grass type move. He probably didn't even have any STAB moves.

....WHELP. Anyway, have you been paying attention, Sushi? What have you learned about battling so far.

Don't trust my trainer because they're an idiot?

Silence!

I


Keep telling yourself that.

Hey, a new route! I hope we get something new and cool this time.



You are not new or cool.

Hoes mad?

Indeed. Hoes mad.



Well, whatever. Let's get some training done. Sushi, ready for some low-effort free EXP?

Absolutely!



....GET ME THE HELL OUT OF HERE.


It doesn't know any electric moves, but fine. Get rid of it, Kjell.



Type advantage who?

Again, it didn't know any electric moves.

LEAVE ME ALONE.

Hey wait, isn't this another new route? You can probably catch something here.

Good point, Sushi! Fingers crossed..............


Pleasedon'tletitbeabidoofOHFORTHELOVEOF-



*grumblegrumbleWeHaveFourOfTheseTHingsNowgrumblemumble*




*grumblegrumbleDoesn'tEvenHaveAGoodAbility*

YES I'm pissed! Thank you for asking, Pecan!



....OOOH SHIT! HELL YEAH




GO SUSHI!!!! FUCK EM UP WITH SPLASH!!!!!!



FISH BATTLE YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

It's official. Jan has lost it.

(Five hours of splashing later)



Whew! I feel much better now.

All it took was a mental breakdown....



Oh shit.

Why does this keep happening to me?!

Why are YOU panicking? You can't fight back either way! Pecan, deal with this thing please.



Doof.

BEST 'doof.



New area. Please for the love of god, let me catch something that isn't a Bidoof.



Oh HELL yes.



More birds! Welcome to the team, Della.

Quack?

Oh god, not another one....

Nahhhh, I'm just messing with ya. 'Sup man?

Not much. Let's get you healed up and TRAINED up.



TOO. MANY. BIDOOFS.


....at least you've got a backup in case Pecan dies?

Don't say that. We don't appreciate negativity in this household.


Let me out of heeeeere!!!!!

Do you hear something?

ABSOLUTELY NOT. LET'S GET OUT OF HERE.

Aaand that's a wrap! Next update should be a bit longer, I'm going to try and beat Roark. See you next week!

Nedlocke1: 7.8/10 TOO MANY BIDOOF

You caught both of the references! You get a cookie. (Unfortunately Pecan licked it first so you might not want to eat it).

Doof indeed! I'm already regretting making Pecan only speak in doofs....

PLEASE tell me you're not going to make one of us learn rock smash.

Are you kidding? We have, like, three extra Bidoofs in the PC. I'll just turn Hazel into an HM slave or something.



Whoops.

Dammit! I wanted to catch that Psyduck.

At least I learned a new move.

Yeah, but Water Sport sucks.

Good point.



Ah, Oreburgh City....the city of *COUGH* *HACK*

Coal?

Air pollution?

Lung disease?

*wheeze* Whatever, let's just go battle the gym leader.

Pfft, wouldn't it be funny if he wasn't at the gym and we had to do some side quest and/or find him first?

Nonsense. When does that kind of thing ever happen.



Called it.

I AM GOING TO BEAT YOU TO DEATH, DELLA.



This seems like a bad idea. Couldn't there be toxic gasses down there?

I volunteer Della to scout ahead for us.

Hey!!



Well, that was quick.

To the gym!

Not yet; you guys have been doing really well so far, but I think we need to do a little extra training.

To the gym(nasium)!



My head feels fuzzy.

Doof!



AlRIGHT! Looking good, everyone!! Congrats on learning Tackle by the way, Sushi.

One step closer to evolving!

Let's do this thang.

We're more than ready. Let's rock!




Here we go! Della, you've got the stronger water type move so you'll be taking on his Cranidos. Kjell, you're faster so you can handle the rest of his pokemon.

Aw, is the widdle pengwin gwumpy Jan doesn't trust her?

Your death will not be a swift one.



Bubble 'em to death!

BLEEEEEEEGH



We're doing good so far! Do it again.

[Onix used Stealth Rock!]



SHIT. Thought I could outspeed it, sorry.

....change of plans. Della, you're sitting this fight out! I don't want you losing any health to stealth rocks.

Fine by me.



Uh....that's a big dinosaur. That's a REALLY big dinosaur.

You got this, Kjell! I believe in you.



Uh oh....that's not good. Kjell, it's coming your way! Take it down, now!

[Cranidos used Headbutt! Kjell used Bubble!]

*SLAM*



Ugh.....

Kjell, you're too hurt! I'm pulling you out of there.

N-no....I can do it.

Are you crazy? It's faster than you and your defense is already down! Don't be an idiot!!!!

I've got this!!!! Stay back.



T-there we go.


Holy shit! We did it!!

Doof!



Excellent work, everyone. I couldn't have done it without you guys.

Can any of us even learn that TM?

I don't think so. Oh well.


Aaaand that's part four! I already started getting screenshots for part five, so hopefully it'll be up around Wednesday. Seeya then!

Risky move there, but probably one I would've taken. You gotta remember, after all, that the AI for this game is not smart, even in the tougher fights.

This has been a pretty fun 'locke so far! I was a little worried when I first saw that you were giving the pokemon voices for fear of them sounding samey, but you've avoided that well!

All in all, you've got my follow.

I am inspired by the doof.

This pokemon subsists on a diet of Fanta Pineapple soda and waffles. Is also nonbinary and gay as hell.

Part five! Today is one of my days off from work so I said "fuck it" and spent a few hours playing. This'll be a long one.

Ah, thanks a lot!! I'll be totally honest, I'm so used to Turtwig (who destroys Roark's team if you know what you're doing) that I thought "hey, Piplup should be fine with Bubble". And I'm glad you like it so far! I've been practicing character dialogue for a while so I'm glad its paying off.

Too much doof. And ye, I'm a little worried about Gardenia, but I have a SECRET BACKUP PLAN in case Sushi dies.

You guys ready to go?

Sure. We should probably teach someone Rock Smash though.

Good idea. Let's go get Hazel from the PC.




Well well well. You've got SOME nerve showing your face around here.

Hazel? Why are you talking like that?

It's EBONY DARKNESS now.

That's a dumb name.

Uh....are you mad about something?

You dumped me in the PC with that dumb little bird! What do you THINK I'm mad about?!

Uh....capitalism?

Well yes that too BUT THATS NOT THE POINT!!!! Let me guess, you want to turn me into an HM slave? Well, hell no.

Fine, whatever. I'll just get one of the other 'doofs to do it.

Nice try, I already convinced them to rebel as well. We're unionizing! What are you going to do now, idiot?

Uh, I can just catch another Bidoof or something. Seeya!

Wait, what? Stop!! Come back!!!!



....so you were totally lying about catching another Bidoof, right?

Yeah, but she didn't need to know that.

Well, now what? We need rock smash to get through that other cave, right?

....hey Pecan, come here for a second.

Doof?



Doof.


Oh, don't be such a baby. You weren't going to use Rollout anyway. Besides, rock smash isn't THAT bad.

Phew! I was worried you were gonna stick me with that useless piece of CRAP move.

Doof?!

Shut up, Kjell!!!!

Oh, right.

Now, pay attention to that Rock Smash, folks. Cuz it ain't the last time you're going to see that Rock Smash in the story.

Who the hell are you talking to?



Oh lord, don't remind me. I'm DREADING that fight.



I heard there's some pretty cool items down here. Get smashing, Pecan!

Doof.



Awesome!



NOT awesome!


Can any of us even learn Flash?

Even if you could, I wouldn't teach it to you. I'm not THAT cruel.

I think a certain beaver would disagree.



Can you stop giving me useless shit please?



"No one shady" my FANNY.

Sinnoh's finest.

Looks like we're going to have to fight. Kjell, do you think you can handle this?

I just sent a Cranidos back to the stone age. Let me at 'em!



Yawn! You guys make this look easy.

It WAS pretty easy.



Uh, I feel kind of funny.



Woah!



Nice job, Kjell!! Congrats!!

You LOOK funny, too.

Perish.



Oh HELL yeah. It's rock-busting time!

You're a water type. You could already do that.



Cool! This might come in handy later.

I'm the only one that can learn it anyway. I don't think we really need it.



Fresh air!


I'm being blinded by the light!




Wow! That was a close one.


How'd you almost lose to a god damn Wurmple?

Leave me alone.



....useless?

Useless. Into the garbage you go, Bullet Seed TM!



*SNFFFF* Ah.....don't you guys love the smell of fresh flowers?


We're water types. We HATE flowers.

And I don't have a nose.

Ba humbug! Let's go catch some more pokemon.




We should probably do something about that.


Why?

It's the right thing to do, moron. Don't you have a heart?

Meh.



Something new and cool, something new and cool....



Oh HELL yeah.



Finally, something not-Bidoofy.

Doof?

Uh....no offense.




Hello! My name's Raspberry!

Uh.....I know. I'm the one who named you. Welcome to the team! This is Kjell, Sushi, Pe-

Hello! My name's Raspberry!!!!

Oh god. Another moron.

You're one to talk.



(one grinding session later)

Looking good, Raspberry! You've got a pretty good moveset so far.


She's just a kid, though. Are you sure making her fight is a good idea?

I'm not just a kid! Check out what I can do!

[Raspberry used mud sport! It's super annoying!]

ACK!!!! YOU GOT MUD IN MY EYES!!!!

....I think this is the start of a beautiful friendship.



In hindsight, we probably should've tried to get inside before we trained Raspberry.

Hush. It's not like she'll lock the door from the inside, keeping us from entering.



You were saying?

I HATE this.



Uh....

First the old rod and now this? This region is full of creeps.




Doof?




Woah, another one?! Congrats, Pecan!

....

What? What is it?
....

Is she trying to say something?

Holy shit! Everybody stand back, give her some air! Well, Pecan? What do you have to say?


....................doof?

God dammit.



Are you guys ready? This could get dangerous.


Let's kick some ass.

Watch your language! We have a child with us now.

Let's kick some ass!

KJELL.

Oops.



Damn, our cover's been blown! This could get ugly.




You're kicking ass, Pecan.

Doof!




What the hell is she talking about?

No clue. She's making my head hurt.

It's not that hard to make your head hurt in the first place.



.....that's pretty unprofessional for a criminal organization. Raspberry, go!



My first real battle! Wheeee!




I'm having a blast! *BLEGGGHHHHHHHH*


Ugh, gross! If you're going to vomit at least warn us!

Raspberry, return. Pecan, I need you to take over.

Doof.




D-doof....


Shit! Hang in there, Pecan. Use rock smash!



Yep! There's that ham again.

Okay, you're seriously starting to freak me out.



Whew! That was close.

[This was seriously a MASSIVE close call, like holy shit. Thank god I was lenient with my rule about healing items, Pecan would've died otherwise.]




What a pushover.



Thanks for the help, jackass.

Alright, now that that's over with, let's head over to Route 205! I'm sure I'll catch a cool new pokemon there.



....


....

....

....



Kill it.

Okay!

And that's a wrap!

Ah sweet, a future ground-type! God knows you'll need one of those when the Electric Types start actually showing up. She must be protected at all costs. And, as predictable, the trend of Bidoof continues. You're going to need another Box for those things by the time you reach the Elite 4.
