Oh, right, Toxic, I forgot about Toxic. I'm still kind of bummed I got that for my Omanyte in my FireRed lorelocke, though...

Yeah I can get that, no doubt some lorelockes are harsher than others. However this one is actually not that bad if you think about it. It takes one move slot from Omanyte, for an actually usable move, and that's about it. Omanyte is a really good pokemon in gen 1 (especially against the last gyms+E4 when you get it) so I would consider still using it if I were you.

But I do have a few issues with this lorerule working a bit weird in most games it is relevant in and only with the move Toxic. I'll think about changing it in futures updates, we'll see. Thanks again for the feedback.

Hi all, you are in for a treat this time - Lots of awesome new @mewstein art! And a few other fixes, coming up in version 1.12. Still slowly working on the Gen 3 mons as usual, so stay tuned for that. I’m also doing my own HG lorelocke, so I might get a few notes and fixes out of that run as well.

Version 1.12 – Update Log

Added:
Added the Bishop Fish / Monk Fish rule to the Chinchou line! (Originally made for a Gen 3 pokemon).
Arrrrrrrguably awesome art for the Shellder line!
Fearsome art for the Gastly line!
Titanic art for Onix!
Hypnotizing new art for the Drowzee line!
Intimidating new art for the Krabby line!
Shocking new art for the Voltorb line!
Festive new art for the Exeggcute line!
(There is too much art for me to show you here, just check the document out, you won't be disappointed).

Fixed:
Changed Articuno's Bringer of Winter a bit to also affect Water and Electric moves (mainly for coming Gen III pokemon with this rule).
Changed Cetus rule to demand that in order to vanquish this pokemon and tame it without paying the sacrifice, you must hit it with a Fighting type pokemon.
Changed Omanyte/Omastar’s Yaoshikepu rule into Descendant of Yaoshikepu /Akkorokamui rule which says “This pokemon descends from a powerful deity that used to be a fearsome spider and was turned into an octopus god. While it is in your party, you may sacrifice a pokemon you just fished (avoiding that pokemon’s lorerule effects) to put an offering on Omanyte/Omastar. When Omanyte/Omastar turns level 40 if it doesn’t have any offerings on it, it kills two random pokemon you own from the box/party. You may remove an offering at any time to try and 50% prevent the death of a pokemon from a lore rule. Omanyte/Omastar is considered Bug type for loreules purposes.”. (Inspired by a comment by @Trollkitten )
Fixed spelling errors, changed formatting a bit and reordered some of older the rules.

As always, I'd love to hear your feedback, your thoughts, and stories of your own advnetures using these rules. See you next time!

I got an error when trying to download the document, saying that I don't have access to this page.

Also, that's a really cool new lore rule for Omanyte, and it's going to be interesting me trying to figure out how to best use it in my FireRed lorelocke.

Thank you! Good thing you told me about that rule and inspired me to make it more interesting and loreful.

I changed the link and changed the access settings, is the problem fixed now?
