Thread Description
Current: And it all escalated into a cavalcade of bull turds. And then my second attempt ended with a cheap shot from N. Trying a new game now.

So I decide to do something a little different. Lets see how many Nuzlockes I can complete in one hockey season! So for this thread, I will only touch it while I'm watching Colorado Avalanche games. Now granted, I probably won't be able to do EVERY game, because I have work, and also there are at least two games I'm straight up attending. Still.


Now I decided to start with Black to give a contrast to my White run. I had someone else pick the randomization options so I am going into this kinda blind.


Starters! Randomized!


I won't lie. I initially picked Cubchoo. And IMMEDIATELY died to Bianca. So Golem it is.


Names! Not randomized! Titles! Totally randomized! Also OMG the imagery!


Trainer Pokemon! Randomized! *realizes that means she can't plot ahead for Gym Leaders* FUCK.


Moves! Randomized! Awesome.


One rival down and I want this AU. I want to see Bianca with muscles.


Him I don't though.


I'll warn now, I don't think they keep their starter. When I challenge them later, spoiler alert, they had different Pokemon.


Two down.


Nicknames, of course, this is a Nuzlocke.


Wild Pokemon! Randomized! Also my Route 1 catch.


Abilities! Randomized! Stats! I have no fucking clue, and don't care.


I definitely don't want to see him with muscles.


Ok, now that I think about it there is definitely an irony in making N-who usually uses local Pokemon-use randomized Pokemon.


Oh, and btw, Roggenrolas have Flame Body.


Route 2 catch!


There are probably going to be some things I'm not that aware of being changed or not, such as stats, XP tweaks, trainer levels, etc.


Pro: I have that. Con: All the other Litwicks will have that. Fuck.


Well, that didn't take very long at all, did it.


Naw man, why would I do that when Gerome knows Horn Leech?


Oh god yes, get rid of Rage.


Not sure if it was a glitch or what, but she had two of the same Pokemon, Petitl.


Let's be honest, Stormy, you were probably gonna get eaten.


Oh that's funny.


Gift Pokemon! Apparently not randomized. Thanks.


I mean, they're not WRONG.


Boooooo I wanted this randomized too.


Guess that's my Dreamyard catch.


You know, Hydration would make a certain amount of sense for a plant. Love how it has attacks for the two OTHER types, but not its own.


And I think he had two Croagunks.


Bahahahaha I now have two STAB moves on Gerome without even trying.

And this update ends here because the game ended. Dallas beat Colorado, 2-1, but it's fine cause this is preseason anyway.

EDIT: Did anyone have to refresh multiple times to get all the pictures to load? Or just me?

Hmmm. Based on this and the previous trainer...I think the Gyms may have type themes. So that's good, I could face the first trainer and plot from there. Not that it helps me here cause of Striaton's gimmick and also I only have three Pokemon.

Also the Avs just got their second goal.


Let's do it


We'll see about that.


Bahahahah clerk makes so much sense for him.


Let's see if there's a pattern


There's a joke here.


And just as I KO they score again.


So it DEFINITELY looks like there is type theming so I can still plot as long as I fight one of the gym minions.


And down.


Badge get!


And TM's are not randomized. Bummer.


Bahahah that is like the opposite of what they are.


Nope.


You had a bird and a metal plate.


This guy again.


HOW IS IT FAIR THAT HE HAS FUSION FLARE?!


FINE, I guess I lost Tamarind.


That's for having Fusion Flare.


Jerk.


BULLSHIT!


Wat.


Route 3 catch.


Still absolute bullshit.


Now I have even MORE questions.


Wellspring Cave catch, and in between the two the Avs scored one more.


....this isn't great. Good thing Pigface can learn Cut.

And with that the game is over. 4-1. That's great. Disappointing that Francouz was denied a shutout though.

I like the premise of your run. And the Dragonite wearing a Nordiques jersey.

Good luck, especially with the weird movesets.

IT'S THE NEW SEASON BITCHES! Starting during first intermission. Would have been sooner but A CERTAIN DOG OF MINE just HAD to be walked.


Decisions, decisions...


Just to show I wasn't lying last time.


DOESN'T FEEL VERY GOOD TO TAKE A FUSION FLARE TO THE FACE, DOES IT?


Trade Pokemon...looks like no. Also fricken tie game.


Pinwheel Forest catch.


Dratinis have Color Change, btw.


Avs score, btw.


This is something I'm gonna probably keep saying all season: goddamnit Nikita.


Not a good idea to replace an attack with that. Also I'm watching our commentators bitching about Zadorov getting penalized. Personally, while I do think it was probably boarding, I don't think he should've gotten the fighting one too.


.....I mean that's not INaccurate.


Aww, hardly anyone can learn Rock Smash.


I AM FORGETTING THIS. USELESS ON A DROUGHT SUMMONING POKEMON.


FUCK.


This is balls.

And that's a post. 5-3. I keep saying people shouldn't pull their goalies, look what happened to Calgary.

I actually don't have very much to report, because pretty much the entire game was spent training up for Lenora,and I'm STILL not done. I do have this to say though...


IT'S SNOWING YOU FUCK.

I actually feel sorry for Holtby.


After a break to walk the dog during intermission, FINALLY got my Pokemon leveled enough.


Ok, let's see if there's a theme.


Never mind. Well, maybe.


He had a Nincada so if it's ground or bug we may have themed gyms after all.


Ground!


Well, that seems to settle it. There are themed gyms. So if I face one trainer I can get an idea what to plot for.


That is so unfair. Why a Dugtrio so early.


One down.


She was pretty tough, Marowak knew Spore AND Rolling Kick.


Two down.


Landeskog got fighty again.


And getting fighty again. Caps are so not pleased with our lead.

And with that the game is over. At this point it's only us and Edmonton that hadn't suffered a loss.

OH THANK GOD, NATEMAC IS PLAYING. He was a question mark.


Route 4 catch btw


Decent moves, less happy about the ability.


ALREADY trailing.


Well, THAT'S a little offensive... Also LEAVE CALVERT ALONE!


Go Donskoi!


Fucking Mean Look. Fucking Florida.


Knew I should've gone with Emerald.


Yeah, no.


THIS IS BULLSHIT!


Probably gonna have to restart if this keeps up.


This night has been a disaster. The entire Battle Company had something to counter my Pokemon.


At least I'll have this to get other Pokemon up to speed. IF I get to catch more.


Sigh.


So the correlation I'm getting is my misery reflects the Avs'. Sigh.


So this is it. I'm down to my last Pokemon. I need a drink.


Oh. Right. Plasma bullshit.


At least it's Gerome who's my last man standing.


So either Dark or Dragon for this gym.


....dragon it is. Fuck. I could've used literally EVERY Pokemon that died.


VICTORY OR DEATH!


So literally my only shot of winning this is by having enough potions to get him confused.

...

I'm fucked.



Yep. Fucked.

So I failed this first experiment. Give me ten minutes to scream and then I'll try again with the final starter.

EDIT: NEVER FUCKING MIND N GOT A CHEAP SHOT IN.
