    Wow you got a pretty challenging combination of a lot of lorerules that affect which pokemon you can put in your party plus the looplocke, should make things interesting to work around! So far you've been doing a great job with what RNG dealt you. Overall you got pretty decent lorerules I'd say...

    Serious Coronavirus Public Discussion

    And I guess it is my turn now. My wife, my baby girl and I are all positive and are sick. I'm encouraged by the facts we are both triple vaccinated, my daughter is very young so hopefully is less at risk, and that it is probably Omicron which is relatively less dangerous. Still, Covid is Covid...

    @Alan900900900 - Thanks for telling me. I always miss new runs for some reason. Oh wow, a Looplocke + Lorelocke combo sounds really cool and quite challenging, best of luck! I'll be sure to follow. (Added a link to it in the main page of this thread!). @Memento - That sounds great (yeah I'm...

    Always great seeing a new Lorelocke on the forums, and I love your style of commentary (really enjoying Dark is not Evil) so I'm sure this one will be awesome. Never heard of the loophole before, looks pretty cool and quite challenging. Great lorerules so far (don't force yourself to play too...

    Yep! Hooray for great fortune and endless lore-money! Got to love your Maneki Neko. Just make sure the kitty is in your party when you do that. Well, hmm, interesting. It's rather grey I admit, you can take it either way and it is fine. I think I'd vote for yes, you can count it, as you can't...

    ... ... Oh Barry, you are adorable when you are angry (also, I love your hair). I gotta say so far Barry had a pretty decent team and posed a pretty decent challenge. Too bad his pokemon are so underleveled though. And now, at last! Route 209, new encounters, new opponents, and a...

    Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire Exclusionlocke

    Happy to nominate this run as I'm having a great time reading it! Ouch, man the gen 3 games are giving you the hardest time so far. Wait if Legends area allowed why didn't you use them so far, saving them for the remakes? I do wonder myself about Legend:Arceus, whether I should count it for my...

    Hard to tell if the intentions of Geo Vani are for the benefit of Gatto, for the benefit of herself, or most probably both.

    Interesting explanation about how the economic system of pokemon trainers work in your world, makes sense.

    As mentioned by bhelryss I really love how chill you are taking the game and enjoying all of its extra content and exploring it, not just trying to beat it. Best of luck against Clair!

    Ruleset The Lorelocke - Version 1.33 is up, including all pokemon up to Gen 4, some rule fixes, And tons of new Johto art!

    @Trollkitten - Interesting question! I mean, technically it is not allowed as it will have to leave your party to be traded away and back. However if you are using the universal randomizer you can have traded pokemon evolve on level up so in that case it won't be breaking the rules. However...

    Dear gods what a rough bunch of patients! I do hope you'll be able to help at least some of them. About the Golem of Prague you are sort of correct. You can indeed box Roxie your Guardian pokemon as there is no rule against it, however I admit I didn't completely think about the option of what...

    Don't Get Me Started: a Pokemon blog

    I'm not sure I completely agree, and I wouldn't count Zygrade and Guzzlord in the same spot as the rest of this bunch, and also as you mentioned yourself this almost the theme of Dragon types both in the pokemon world and generally in culture. Still I definitely see your point here. In many ways...

    Fine update, and lots of crits indeed. It's hard keeping such a big rotation team, but I want you to use so many of these less commonly used pokemon I can't complain. For your question, you mean specifically in the Galar games? I don't mind the number of times we fight each of them, and...

    Wow, I know of all the locations you mentioned well but I think I never fully explored them all like you did. Perhaps the hate against Johto for having to grind so much as there's nothing to do between the gyms and dealing with the big level gaps is exaggerated. I love the fact Jasmine's...

    Tangrowth - I killed my HG Tangela a moment before I could evolve it, and I always wanted to use this Shuggy Caveman. Leafeon - I'm basic, I like Eevee and the Eeveelutions, deal with it. Carnivine - In theory this pokemon seems cool but for some reason I just can't click with it. Perhaps one...
