Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, thank you in advance for giving me a moment of your time!

My whole life I've wanted to be an entertainer and for years I've observed other Poketubers do what I love wishing I could be like them. Well, I decided to go for it. I've been researching various communities to try and connect with more people and share my content as I truly believe I have something to other people. I hope you decide to check out my content and stick around with me. I'm a highly energetic, passionate gamer and Pokemon was one of my first ever games. I started with red version on the gameboy black and white.

However, here I am sharing my best project to date - my Soul Silver Randomized Unlocke. A Nuzlocke with a difficult twist I think you will love.
Please find the specific rules and randomizer details below the video:

Standard Nuzlocke rules:

1. If a Pokemon faints it is DEAD and no longer usable.
2. You can only catch your FIRST encounter on each route.
3. You must NICKNAME each and every Pokemon to strengthen the bond.

Unlocke Rules:
As well as the rules above the game starts off more limiting to us as we unlock something with each gym badge we attain. The unlocks go as followed:
First badge - Allow use of healing items
Second badge - Allow evolutions
Third badge - Allow 4 Pokemon in your party
Fourth badge - Allow use of TMs
Fifth badge - Allow 5 Pokemon in your party
Sixth badge - Allow use of held items
Seventh badge - Allow 6 Pokemon in your party
Eighth badge - Give a revive to a previously dead Pokemon

Randomizer details are fairly standard: TMs, items, wild pokemon, trainer pokemon abilities are all randomized completely. Rival keeps their starter throughout the game. Level increase is at 10%. Trade evolutions are disabled and fully evolved pokemon are forced at level 45.

I hope you appreciate my work and join me on my journey.

Thanks in advance Team!

Episode 2 - This challenge is hard!

The title says it all, in this episode we progress to Sprout Tower and I begin to learn the added difficulties this Unlocke varient is going to bring me. We get some new encounters and make decisions on who to add to the team. (Remember we're only allowed 3 Pokemon in the party right now!)

Please find the video below and feel free to share your thoughts on the Unlocke idea, my commentary or anything you like. Also if you wish me to name a future encounter after you / your chosen nickname then just let me know!

Thanks Team!

Episode 3 - I lost already?!?!

In this episode Tommy and the gang get ready for their toughest test yet, Falkner of Violet City. Will they achieve victory and claim their first gym badge? Or will Tommy make fun of Falkner's hair and get taught a lesson? Either way it's going to be a challenge as with 0 unlocks so far, healing items are still not allowed!

Enjoy and thanks Team!

Episode 4 - Why do I suck?

After the tragedy of the previous episode we pick ourselves up and carry on building bonds with our new team in the hope they'll last longer this time. Will we get to sprout tower? Will we get to Falkner? Or will we be forever stuck in the limbo that is Violet City. Watch the vid to find out!

Episode 5 - Third Time Lucky for Revenge

We sadly follow on from another disastrous run of luck in the previous episode, it would appear that the evil forces of Team Rocket really don't want us to succeed in this Unlocke. However, we are ever persistent and dust ourselves off for the THIRD TIME and go again. So we wind up back at the lab with Elm to pick our 3rd and final starter Pokemon of this serious. Tommy then uses his 'super editing' attack to skip you forward to the encounters to move this story. Will we finally get that damn Zephyr badge? You can find out here...

Episode 7 - A Legendary Panic

In this episode Tommy and the gang have a few big tasks at hand. First up we need to help old Kurt take down Team Rocket and save the Slowpoke of Azela Town. Secondly, they have their second gym challenge awaiting them. The current squad made short work of Falkner and his crew but will this be the same story? You can tell by the title it's not.... Enjoy!

The gang were successful in their attempt to claim the second badge and avoided any deaths against Dialga.

Episode 13 - Under-levelled Gym Attempt

In this episode we cross the ocean from Olivine to Cianwood in order to collect the secret potion to cure Amphy. However, whilst making the long travel south-west we decide it's probably best to claim another badge and another unlock too. Although, there's a catch, the gang are now horribly under-levelled. Will they succeed? Or will they perish under Chuck's might fists? Find out below

Episode 14 - Hunting a Shiny

Well, Tommy and co managed to get out of Chuck's gym unscathed and with that they have their 5th unlock of the series; a 5th party member. So Athena the Machamp joins the team and we look to start training her up to an appropriate level. In this episode the gang make their way over to the Lake of Rage for more encounters, one being a shiny. I wonder what they'll find...

Episode 15 - Hyper Beam to the Face

We're at that point in the game when it's time to take down the evil gang. In this case it's Team Rocket at it again hiding their base in a mystery house in the small town of Mahogany. We're not entirely sure what they're up to but we have the Champion Lance at our side to help us wipe out these bad guys. Will we make it through the hideout in one piece? Or will Lance's Dragonite go overboard and start hyper-beaming us too? Only one way to find out...

Episode 16 - Worst Death Ever

Well, we cleared out Team Rocket's hideout and sent them running off (to the radio tower) and now we have some badges we can attain, and with that more unlocks! The next unlock is a biggy, as we will be allowed to use held items ad we have some great ones such as the choice band. If all goes to plan we can do a little grinding, get some encounters and claim badges... IF... Check out what happens below:

Episode 17 - Finally a Full Team

In this episode we mourn the loss of our Charizard Zara. Who was the best starter anyone could have asked for. She got us out of some tricky times but her time had come. Moving on we replaced her slot with our shiny Magmortar who has big shoes to fill. Can she take the heat and help us beat Pryce? (Giving us our 7th unlock and a 6th party slot). Find out here...
