Thanks brother. Lets rock and roll through Kanto next.

The classic trope of solving problems with battles continues even on a cruise ship.

If you have time to take a nap, say like an hour or so, that means tthis ship goes very slow towards Kanto. Otherwise the time spent traveling just doesn't make sense.

Listening to this furry ramble on about his Rapidash nets me a Rare Candy so that I can start saving them up again.

Who knew about this hidden item? (Don't worry, I will be showcasing the hidden items in Kanto as well!)

Time for a Kanto gym.

I did a very poor job at nabbing the screenshots I usually show for battles. Like this is the worst I've done yet.

mDsjVVg.jpg


I could be wrong. But I don't remember any other gym leader (or NPC) for that matter having their name in a dialogue box preceding what they would say. Maybe I'm being paranoid right now? I mean, Morty was never like "Morty: Let's go explore Burned Tower." or whatever.

And we finish this chapter with more dialogue boxes explaining that it is indeed Surge talking to us.

Thanks for reading all! I hope you don't get attacked by a dog today!

Only two trainers. Easy.

This makes sense. You can't have pedestrians walking around in an underground tunnel without any power.

And another Rattata to spend the rest of his life in the box with the other Rattatas.

Truth be told, this could be useful. We could use our Celadon City catch to get a Porygon from the Game Corner and evolve it with this.

We defeated the Master who like all martial artists in this game, he just wanted to poop all over the place.

We'll just nab this instead.

Well since we are here, lets knock this out.

So Sabrina talks like Lt. Surge was. Perhaps I was just paranoid and didn't remember who the dialogue was structured in this game.

LG5wSjP.jpg


I'm only worried about her Alakazam.

L0SSGRL.jpg
V1dZFmr.jpg


Nothing to see here except for Z-One boding her first two Pokemon.

8fxs0at.jpg


Alakazam got a critical hit Psychic on Z-One, who took it like a champ. He fired back with a Thunder Wave that I didn't screenshot. Then I switched to Kappa.

And we passed through the spooky town and promptly left to the north.

Annnnd we made it.

6DIbAPv.jpg


This was my Route 10 encounter, since getting to the Power Plant means you have to surf from Route 9 to Route 10. I already have a Seaking in the box, so we slew it.

As a child playing this game. I had no idea what this guy meant by having my cooperation. They should have been a little more clear that he wants you to play detective for him. Anyways lets get through the Route 9 trainers now and get to Cerulean City.

I believe there is a hidden item on Route 9, but I couldn't find it. Maybe my memory is failing me. I'll have to look it up in a guide and see.

x2q1LBE.jpg


And we made it. That seems like a good place to end this chapter. Next time we should be able to fix the Power Plant, or at least get really close to it. Thanks for reading and I hope you don't lose power to your house today!

The best Pokemon I can catch is Snorlax, since it is already at such a high level along with just being an amazing Pokemon in general. I hope I don't have to add any new team members but it is a nuzlocke and you never really know.

Well now that we are here, maybe we should stop at the gym?

I know it was mostly just showcasing what the characters said, but their text is what brings so much soul to this game. Thanks for reading and I'll see you in the next update. I hope you don't explode into a bunch of pieces randomly today!

Since we are in Johto and it was Saturday at the time of playing, I think it is a good idea to make a pit stop in Goldenrod before we take the train back to Kanto. I spent about half of my money on 4k coins.

Z-One needs an upgrade for the last portion of the game.

There we go. Now we don't need to worry about Thunder missing in a crucial moment. Also I love how this dude laughs.

VbKdh33.jpg

Yes sir, I am.

2oVujIe.jpg

And a quick Fly brings us back to Cerulean Gym to finish off Misty.

The trainers went down easily as expected.

Bring it on woman!

VGyYA4o.jpg


The first screenshot of this battle is missing. Z-One OHKO'd her Golduck with Thunderbolt. Sadly I forgot to take the screenshot. But moving on, Z-One can't fight Quagsire.

Pbzqtx6.jpg


But Cosmo can.

ZLwyorl.jpg


Petal Dance almost KO's Lapras. It used this turn to set up Rain Dance.

30zfJm7.jpg


And there she falls. Now Cosmo is confused and I don't want that the hinder our fight against her big bad Starmie.

UtDHFh3.jpg
vb71REV.jpg


So we switch in Z-One who takes minimal damage on the switch in.

6kIOWPz.jpg
mXd5cyh.jpg


BUT HOLY CRAP. Z-ONE DID NOT TAKE THAT SURF VERY WELL. I NEARLY HAD A HEART ATTACK. Thankfully he OHKO's Starmie with a Thunderbolt. That was close.

jMKFCWR.jpg
rlyfVLA.jpg
JxE7A63.jpg

Glad to see she isn't calling me a pest anymore. Anyways, time to move on from this city and continue our quest of defeating the Kanto gym leaders.

I'm not going to catch anything here.

wJykTTx.jpg


But I will stop at this house for an item.

We reach Saffron and promptly head out west. I will be skipping my catch in Route 7 and wait until night time were I might get something a little more useful. That is if I remember to come back here at some point.

zkegzSu.jpg


But we made it to Celadon. There isn't much to do here that I want to do. I could go shopping in the Dept. Store, or gamble at the casino. But I don't really need to do any of that right now.

AW4LgMx.jpg


I will stop at the restaurant and grab the hidden Leftovers though. You did know about this right?

7CZSiFt.jpg


So the only thing left to do is challenge the gym.

NL0B0GJ.jpg
P764yAk.jpg
7qAR88S.jpg
2ZBXRGy.jpg


And that wraps up all the trainers in here.

That's right. Javelintwo getting four OHKOs against her team.

DLkK8Hh.jpg

9KqodoA.jpg
R2PbLmo.jpg
ix6Cd2k.jpg


And that wraps up the fourth Kanto gym leader. Giga Drain is a very nice TM, I'll hold onto it for and maybe someone will get it. That's all for this update folks. Thanks for reading and I hope you don't fall into a pit and get trapped today!

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it. Red still scares me, but I think I have a good chance if I train my team up to around his levels

ALSO, this chapter is short because the chapter afterwards will mostly be boring battles. I have to fight through Routes 12-15 and nothing really interesting takes place there, so I decided to split it up into two different chapters.
JDQtgJZ.jpg


It is night time now. I can do the few things I skipped earlier. The first is entering the apartment building through the back entrance and going all the way to the top level.

spdR2se.jpg
U1J46Tc.jpg
Kze4xJ2.jpg
r0Jm3Rf.jpg


This fella tells us a spooky story and then gifts up the Curse TM. Awesome!

BikquOS.jpg


Back to Route 7 to see if I can catch one of the new Dark type Pokemon that show up here.

KmDCr7a.jpg
Cze7zZS.jpg
JcFzn2i.jpg


This is a neat catch instead. Too bad it is way late in the game, I'd consider swapping Z-One or Poppy out for him if it was earlier.

jdqDu8W.jpg


Here we are at cycling road now.

The nickname I gave it reflects my feelings on it joining our team.

Well that is it for the trainers on this route. We also nabbed the hidden Max Elixer in the fence. You did know about it right?

Another very short route.

There are only two things to do in this city.

fjSp5io.jpg


HELLO MR. SUNBURNT BERRY! ARE YOU ENJOYING YOUR TRIP IN KANTO?

IQLTiub.jpg


The second is this gym.

TInvzPW.jpg

The four imposters are vented out of the gym.

So I must apologize. I did a very bad job of the screenshots for this battle. I missed beating her Ariados. I missed with Rock Throw and he landed a Giga Drain which barely did anything. I managed to OHKO it with Rock Throw the next turn. I ALSO missed screenshoting me OHKO'ing her 2nd Weezing with Earthquake, but it looked exactly like the first.

Janine is pretty weak, I don't think there was anyway for me to lose this battle with her.

upiE6xw.jpg
dXTc6ut.jpg
SH05p41.jpg


Finally the Toxic TM! This will go on Cosmo replacing Cut, once we are all finished cutting down little bushes around Kanto. And that wraps up this chapter, like I said earlier, very short. Stay tuned for more updates and thanks for reading. I hope you don't get mauled by a tiger today!

toxic!!! nice

janine's gym is really fun even if it's simple and at this point in the game a bit easy to crunch if you have a counter for poison types

the body doubles are clever, i think

This guy shares the same name as me. There's always a little game to see if any in-game trainers share the same name as you and what their team is and how it would compare to you. I know for certain I wouldn't use a full team of six Pikachus. Shaking my smh.

And you all knew about this hidden Calcium right?

How about another chance at that 1% Chansey amiright?

This time we were successful. Again it's too bad that I got a few nice catches in Kanto. Nidoking is easily S tier in GSC nuzlockes and I would like to add him to the team if it didn't mean like five hours of grinding (maybe even more).

Let's end this on a strong note shall we?

One final hidden item that I hope you all knew about after finishing the trainer gauntlet.

We made it! But one final thing to do this chapter.

Alright, one more route we can clear out before moving on to other parts of Kanto.

Now it is time to encounter the biggest Chunga of them all.

Wilma was able to tank any attack Snorlax threw at her. It took some time but we were able to capture him. Snorlax has the highest chance of joining the team for the Red fight, since it already comes leveled close to what the team is, plus Snorlax is a fantastic Pokemon in it's own right.

At the very least we will take the Leftovers for someone else.

Time to move on!

I always thought it was a little odd to get this legendary item that reveals one of the legendary mascot birds depending on which game you are playing. I suspect this might have been because of the time constraints Gamefreak was on while developing GSC.

BbR86K3.jpg


But with all that out of the way, there is only one more thing to do here.

This will be Cosmo's time to shine.

And that wraps up this update. Nothing really too exciting to share, and we are wrapping up the game soon. Stay tuned for more updates and thank you for reading! I hope you don't step in poison ivy today!

Part of the purpose of this nuzlocke was also to show off the majority of the hidden items in this game, that way if anyone goes back to Crystal they'll have some extra helpful knowledge if I did a good job. The Cosmo sweep was great, probably one of Como's best times to shine. Not sure how much more useful he'll be in the upcoming fights.

ALSO, I apologize for such a long gap between updates. Work was hectic last week and I didn't get a chance to play until this last weekend, and even then I was rather busy.

cIxOyPs.jpg


Time to move forward. There aren't many routes left to conquer.

31FJypt.jpg
CJUBhKh.jpg
Tbw1Ng8.jpg
Z9icr8g.jpg


That wraps up the trainers. There aren't any items on this route unfortunately.

Let's get through Mt. Moon. It isn't near as troublesome as it was in RBY or their remakes.

Pm2S5nx.jpg
dF8NH2x.jpg


Instead we get ambushed by our rivals riveting dialogue, then the final story battle with him!

sutHTVK.jpg


OHKO!

l2h7CGq.jpg
oiiBRgy.jpg


I had to switch Wilma in for his Magneton and got another OHKO!

SvNX6B0.jpg
33ZikOM.jpg


Cosmo was switched in to OHKO his Meganium!

ZMTLCvW.jpg
fSUxK4d.jpg


Wilma should be able to handle the rest of his team. It took a little time to actually land a hit thanks to Confuse Ray, but Wilma did land the OHKO!

s7HFIo9.jpg


Alakazam landed a Psychic which did quite a bit of damage that I wasn't really expecting. But once again there was another OHKO!

P4fZFfz.jpg


Gengar did a little bit of damage with Shadow Ball before it too was OHKO'd!

n3ci2x0.jpg
1a3vKXU.jpg


And that wraps that up nicely.

g0TYLD6.jpg


I should have showcased this a earlier, but there are lots of signs and dialogue from NPCs telling you not to litter. Kanto must have a littering problem.

ALSO, it wasn't Monday night when I made it here so I didn't get the free Moonstone from the Clefairy's.

XAVqHlG.jpg


But we made it out of the cavern and time to finish off this route.

6gHvZDM.jpg

There isn't too much to do here for now.

There is the TM for Dream Eater from this fella. We could battle Cal in the trainer house as well. That's about it for now.

7k741FQ.jpg


Instead we will head down here.

aCOG57h.jpg


HELLO BITTER BERRY! I GUESS YOU AREN'T ENJOYING YOUR TIME IN KANTO? IS IT BECAUSE OF ALL THE LITTER?

BPwxfwR.jpg
L1jLa16.jpg


More easy trainers.

w09vJby.jpg


And let the nostalgia commence.

:D

w8sbB54.jpg

We only have two more Kanto badges left. It shouldn't take too long Oak.

Well, let's continue south even more shall we?

No items on this route. Just trainers.

I kinda like the fact that the devs made Cinnabar Island suffer a natural disaster. Islands in the ocean are made from underground/underwater volcanoes, so it makes sense that Cinnabar's could still be active just like the real world.

Alright, smell ya later Blue.

There is a hidden Rare Candy on the island though.

That is it for this update. I suspect the next one will have the remaining two gym battles in it. It might take some time because I will need to grind for the battle with Blue. Hopefully not too long though, we'll see. Thank you all for watching and I hope the next time you go boating you don't fall off and drown!

The greatest challenge is getting closer and closer, good luck!

Thank you for the good luck and well wishes you two, it means a lot.

I don't have a proper update today, I just wanted to check in and say I'm getting close to finishing the grind for the battle with Blue. It has taken longer than normal because I had to travel out of town for a vacation to visit my GF's side of the family and that put me away from the house for six days.

We all know that grinding in GSC is pretty terrible. My strategy has been to grind on Route 14 and hope to encounter Chanseys, which give about 1k experience when defeated. Not only that put I taught JavelinTwo Thief, so when I do encounter Chansey, I can use Thief to try and steal a Lucky Egg to speed up the grinding process (not only for the battle with Blue, but for the massive grind that will take place before the battle with Red).

Unfortunately, Chansey only appears 1% of the time. Then UNFORTUNATELY on top of that, Chansey only has a 2% chance to hold a Lucky Egg. So I'm really trying to roll the odds here. I've encountered about a dozen Chanseys, but no Lucky Egg yet. Oh well, the grind will continue!

Stay tuned, hopefully I can have a proper update shortly! I hope you don't get sucked up by a tornado today!

Finally! It is here!

This is a big screenshot because I forgot to resize this one and I cant be bothered to re-do it. We left off on Cinnabar Island. Time to finish up battling trainers next to Blaine's cave.

Well that is seven of the eight Kanto badges. Or fifteen of the sixteen badges overall.

cxikVqp.jpg
DOyVhWt.jpg


YO!

Anyways time to grind. This took way longer than it should of. Some of it was my fault, some wasn't. I had a vacation in the middle of it all that took six days away from me. Work has been extremely busy and I often was tired afterwards and didn't feel like grinding. That led to a general lack of motivation to grind. Now some isn't my fault. Grinding at this point in the game sucks. I mentioned my strategy was to grind on Route 14 during the night. Most Pokemon give around 600ish exp when you defeat them and you have a 1% chance to encounter a Chansey. Chansey's give about 1k exp when defeated, but if you use Thief on them, there is a 2% chance you'll nab a Lucky Egg from them. The odds are not in your favor and spoiler alert, I never got the Lucky Egg. I only encountered probably eight Chansey's during the grind.

f1mS7dn.jpg
vkOGPyr.jpg
tAGBMmT.jpg


And the first one, I didn't even have Thief taught to my Fearow. Whoops.

An9hYif.jpg
VEXzGrX.jpg


Like I said, it was unsuccessful.

GmGbOdz.jpg
AUt44fN.jpg


Other than that, I did grind on the Fast Ship Aqua. If you didn't know, when you ride the ship between Kanto and Johto, you can fight trainers on the ride, just like when you first take it to Vermilion. You get nice cash and EXP from the battles, it really adds up over the days.

I only nabbed screenshots of one trip. ANYWAYS.... That is how it went for awhile. I could have grinded against the E4, but I didn't want to risk a random death to a critical hit or something. I will consider that for the grind for Red once I get some more levels under my belt.

jXPTlZk.jpg


I also forgot to screenshot the team once I was done grinding. But everyone made it to level 58. Lets move on FINALLY!

YPKURIx.jpg

I didn't wait this long to give up now.

Let's lead with Wilma against the Pidgeot (RIP AEROSMACK).

RJ8PVHx.jpg
NPxiz52.jpg
oHTUqHQ.jpg


Rock Throw almost KOs. Then Cosmo gets pulled out with Whirlwind oddly.

JhwxE4O.jpg


Cosmo tanked a Wing Attack and finished off the Pidgeot with a Sludge Bomb.

s1rnFdX.jpg
q8UalnC.jpg


I am always scared of Alakazams. Let's hope JavelinTwo can handle it.


v6jbjrM.jpg


Javelin tanks the Psychic and nabs an OHKO with Drill Peck. Looking good so far.

UNb4d18.jpg
3N5LqAw.jpg


This one should be easy for Kappa.

Y2v6b7k.jpg


Rhydon threw a Rock Slide at us then we OHKO'd with Surf.

fqhfavI.jpg
4SxZGhL.jpg


So knowing the AI, it is going to use a Grass type move to attack Kappa. Exeggutor only knows Solar Beam and that is a two turn move. Basically I can switch in JavelineTwo for free here and get the KO with Drill Peck.

Bw1T5Kp.jpg
5HFz59D.jpg


Except..... Drill Peck didn't KO. Solar Beams off of Exeggutor are going to hurt......


















.......

















I'm scared.......

















wxQbP6A.jpg


OMG!

I can't believe JavelinTwo survived that to be honest...


jlNyPei.jpg
x44v25a.jpg


Blue went through all of his Full Restores against Fearow's Drill Pecks. I guess I shouldn't complain. In the end we managed to knock it out.

i0KxRe9.jpg

Gyarados misses the Hydro Pump, which is actually really nice!

uU5IITL.jpg


That was easy.

X68Mzuz.jpg
zJGbTsU.jpg
GMXKtOw.jpg


That could be problematic. Wilma got burned off of the Flamethrower.

DXqxkzE.jpg
oHZHZ3A.jpg


Earthquake did quite a bit less than expected with that burn holding us back. Then on top of it Cosmo once again gets pulled out thanks to Roar.

00l407N.jpg
4O1o23z.jpg
gLr2bv7.jpg


But Kappa finishes off the battle with a Surf. We did it bois!

zsV6gon.jpg

S3eB8xf.jpg


And that is all the badges done and knocked out. No more to go!

faaUfJ1.jpg

That is swell. Finally a new decent grinding spot is opened up for us before Red.

mFL9xLY.jpg


I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like

0Wa83XT.jpg


And that is where we are going to call it for now. Next up another grind before we fight Red. Stay tuned and I hope you die of heat exhaustion tonight!

Great news everyone! The final battle with Red will happen sometime this week. I am on vacation this week so I will be able to finish grinding. I'm about halfway done as of now and I got really motivated this weekend and I suspect that motivation will continue into the next coming days!

I'm ready to finish this!
