Psych-Up is a literal lifesaver for Necrozma if you have the right mon to use it with (specifically one with Sturdy/Disguise as its ability)

A bizarre Pokémon who dislikes many social activities. She appears to have a penchant for peanut butter and foreign languages.
I do have a Magnemite, but it doesn't look like they can learn Psych-Up. I doubt I can keep it alive long enough, anyways.

I only made a run of Ultra Sun for two reasons:
1. I wanted to test myself in the most brutal game to Nuzlocke.
2. The Alola games offer quite the potential for a PMD-style Run.

But that forgiven game is like the Yakuza in the Simpsons: it kills you five times before you hit the ground.
I swear, if It weren´t because of certain Pokémon I grew fond of, or the completionist soul within me, I would´ve quit after the second trial.

I hate Gen 7 so much because of how much text it has and how weird the story gets, but it does have a good Pokémon roster and epic soundtrack.

She's like a sea urchin. Tough and prickly on the outside, but delicate and easily wounded if hit the wrong way. Please handle gently.
The magnemite I caught in my US earthlocke, I kept on the team once I switched to a casual run. Mango the magnemite! One of the most valued team members by far! I love earth types by default, but I never knew magnemite was so spunky and useful!

It can be taught to Magnezone if you can evolve it

Oh, really? I'll have to do that then, assuming they survive that long. Epic.

Sturdy can save your life in Ultra Sun and Moon, and that fact alone shows you how bad the difficulty can be in those games.

This Pokémon has too many ideas for their own good.
Over leveling is absolutely your friend in USUM. Also?? Avoid optional trainers. They’re optional for a reason. Not speaking from the experience of losing 4 Pokémon in one battle directly after a team rotation, no...

I can confirm that the Exp. Share definitely makes a difference. Part of why the first third of the game was the easiest was because I used the Exp. Share so I could 1. evolve three team members within a short period of time, and 2. actually stand a chance against Wattson with a group that was most emphatically not built to take on a Magneton.

But I didn't want to Exp. Share the entire game, so I turned it off.

Fun fact: if you don't have the Exp. Share on, grinding for the legendary battles is brutal.

Also fun fact: even if you have the Exp. Share on, you're gonna have a bad time if you want to actually catch the legendaries.

And my name isn't Terry

Useful stuff is not useful when you´re dead.
Those trainers are no joke, they even have Z-moves to one-shot your team.

If you outspeed them or have decent defensive typing, you should be fine, at worst only ONE can one-shot a teammate

But if you don’t expect them? They’re bad. Plus iirc they mostly give out niche TMs and items that are hard to use well in nuzlockes

Red Card Item/Roost, Nature Power (a gamebreaker if paired with Normalium-Z) and Snarl (SpAtk Debuff) beg to differ

Yeah, you're the one who called me Terry.

All is forgiven. After all, my mom used to get me and my siblings' names mixed up all the time. It happens/

Happy Passover to anyone out there celebrating! Our Seder this year will be rather weird as it will be online (Covid19 and all), but still this is one of my favorite holidays, and I won't let that virus take that away from us :)
