    And to the surprise of no one ever, Gen 2 Geodude beats Scyther! wait, bugsy uses more pokemon than scyther? /j Grass-types like Olimar really do excel in the Defensive/Stall Game in their own ways, which is amazing to see and play around with when you know how to use! or that you can use it...

    Quite a little team you're assembling! I like how you hint at the natures & characteristics of the Pokemon via descriptors in the letter, it's a very natural way of telling us that information about them. On the gameplay side of things, that Rash nature for Lisa could end up being an asset or...

    Johto Written Log Other Media Teen Mon Frontier Dawn: A HeartGold Nuzlocke

    OHHH SHIT, NAMEDROP??? EXTRA LORE?????? I love the way that "Gold" put some emphasis on how nice people in Johto are, implies that it's not nearly as common wherever they're from (Sinnoh?). Also, the cheesy name and joke they went for when naming Carlton. I honestly groaned some when reading...

    Gen II accidentally says Gay Rights! On the one hand, you've got a major level disadvantage walking into battle against that Scyther... on the other hand, you have a Geodude. in the generation where Geodude tramples over half of the Johto gym leaders. Things will probably work out just fine.

    Johto Written Log Other Media Teen Mon Frontier Dawn: A HeartGold Nuzlocke

    Well, this is interesting. Already in the first letter you're dropping small bombs on us-- don't think I don't notice the specific mention of Cyrus and his team in "Gold's" letter there, what does Team Galactic have to do with this Frontier Dawn organization? There's a lot of meat to chew on...

    yeah, word of advice: don't do a gen 6 wonderlocke unless you specifically make it a rule you must trade back early-game bugs (and maybe rodents & birds, for that matter). otherwise... i can't vouch for Gen 7 on the WT matter nowadays, but I assume it's pretty similar. And also, big same on...

    oh, now that it's spelled out that makes a lot of sense! never would've come to that realization on my own (personally i kinda thought it was in recompense for the people who started with Chikorita) as for breeding... if it was during one of the spells i had where i'd WT out freshly-hatched...

    haku is the bestest boy. i don't think i've ever seen a nuzlocke where Sprout Tower was actually something of a proper threat before this. this is not a particularly good thing, as your situation during this gauntlet was. pretty precarious. to put it as mildly as possible. hopefully falkner...

    They had... the ability to skip the catching tutorial... and they got rid of it for Every Following Generation. why? interesting to note how past-you basically forgot that you can get a catch from... I believe Route 41? it's in the 40s, i know-- from Route 20-something if you go through that...

    Hot take on Berries: there should be more accessible ways of getting them. Like, make the status cure ones sold at one or two places but make them slightly cheaper than normal status cure stuff. Like the alternate HP-healing items. Also, the crossbreeding for the EV ones in Kalos was fun and...

    Man, what happened to Pokemon including sneaky references to movies of the time in the PC's house? That would've been a fun trend to continue on with. Solid choice of starter in Totodile, hopefully Haku'll make it to and past Mt. Silver.

    RIP Grinch and Saxon, they fought well. Y'know, I'd make a joke here, but there is no good punny way to fit Chel's name into Kanto... so uh yeah they should've called it Chel Dorado. ...speaking loosely of gold, can't wait for Johto!

    that hypnosis/pokeflute battle seems annoying as hell, i'm sorry you had to put up with that. congrats on an otherwise complication-free run of Lance and the rival, tho! and for the upcoming last update.... mewtwo fight 2: electric boogaloo time ...it's kind of awkward to have two "twos" in...

    Love how the guide blatantly misspells Lorelei's name as Loreli when there is a screenshot showing her actual name right there in the same section. Also, for the entry length question, I think I'd prefer longer but fewer ones. I like having more meat to chew per update, personally.
