This Pokemon is a master of having too many projects at the same time. Also, Pikablu.

If you're the Princess Of Darkness, is Ozzy Osbourne a relation?

What're your favourite games outside of Pokemon? (Asking because we're of similar age and probably have similar tastes!)

What's your favorite character among those you invented in one of you creations/stories?
Oh, wow. You may as well ask who my favorite child is; I love all of my characters equally and unconditionally, haha. XD Hmm...damn, I really can't decide. I'm sorry, but I love literally all of my characters a ton, even the jackasses amongst them.

Top 3 worst deaths assuming you have any?
Ah, yes. Top three worst deaths were all Jupiter's Skuntank. Tied for second/third are Briar the Staravia, and Abby the Luxio in Obliteration. It sucked because they had a double intimidate core, were a couple - literally - in the story, and I had grown attached to them.

Worst death was another Staravia in Stan...the very first Pokemon I lost in a Nuzlocke. I had stared at the screen for a minute or two, not believing that a crit night slash would take him down. Guess I had a problem learning from Stan's death.

If you're the Princess Of Darkness, is Ozzy Osbourne a relation?

What're your favourite games outside of Pokemon? (Asking because we're of similar age and probably have similar tastes!)
Yeah, I know Ozzy. He's got nothing on me.

Ooh, that' s a tough question. I'll go with a game that was on the Xbox One in Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor/War. It's so much fun to kill orcs...but the real fun comes from branding them and making them obey you. The gameplay is a mix between the Batman Arkham series (melee combat), Assassin's Creed (stealth), and Red Dead Redemption (ranged). The plot for Mordor isn't that great (War makes up for it), but it's a blast to play, and I highly recommend it.

What is your favourite savoury food?
Favorite savory food, eh? Hmm...well, does barbeque count? I'll go with that. A good barbeque - with a dry-rub; I don't really like sauce - is probably my favorite food ever.

Do you have any pets?
Well, I did. Had a golden retriever named Granger when I was four. He was my only friend for quite some time. My folks have had cats (including the newest one, Destiny, who is as close to a pet as I can have). But I can't say that I have any; the place where I live won't allow them.

Any dishes you would recommend to someone?
Jambalaya/gumbo. It takes a lot of time to make it, but damn, if it isn't satisfying. The aforementioned barbeque in a previous question is also good, especially ribs.

Granted, I suck at cooking, so I don't know how to make any of them, haha~ XD

This Skarmory/Charizard fusion is very rare and tends to be quiet and shy until befriended. Also a huge fan of Smash Bros. and writing.

@RR Sharp - (What is the backstory to your user name (if there is a story behind that is).)
There actually is, though it is not that interesting I guess. Boys and girls, let me take you to the magical time called the very early 2000s, when if you wanted to play online with your friend, one of the few ways you had was playing through Blizzard’s Battlenet! Though seriously, back in 2002 when Warcraft III came out I was 13 and it was the first time I ever had to open a new online account for anything. I just stared endlessly at the loading screen trying to come up with a nickname. My older brother also had a two words nickname as well, and that lion with the sapphire eyes inspired to go with SapphireClaw. Though I’m not sure if the name was just too long, or my love for Rubies and their deep red color convinced me otherwise, but I eventually decided to go with RubyClaw instead, and that’s about it. It remained one of two nicknames I almost always use online ever since (and with my love for Fire pokemon such as Charmander, it works well in a pokemon context as well!).

@Argentum - (Tell us your best knock knock joke!)

Well, it works better as a meme but sure. Just remember you asked for it :P

A: Knock, knock.
B: Who’s there?
A: Cargo.
B: Cargo, who?
A: No, cargo beep-beep! Vrum, vrum!

@csidvuL - (How is your daughter going? How are you and your wife adjusting, a few months in?).
She is doing great thank you! I’m biased of course, but she is extremely adorable, behaves so well and sleeps properly which is blessed at this age (especially when she is feeling well and doesn’t have stomach aches the poor thing). I just wish I could spend more time with her in this crucial young age, but I got to balance work and life as society dictates. My wife and I are both adjusting rather well I’d say, and my wife is just amazing with her (and in general). There are a lot of changes going on in our lives lately (we are moving to a new place soon, work changes, Covid affecting just about everything, etc) so it can sometimes be a bit too much, so I can’t wait to have a more stable routine to hopefully let us all flourish even more in.

@mewstein - (Hey Mr. Scientist, what invention or discovery's gonna net you that Nobel Prize?)
lol, at my age and as someone who left the academy for the industry, it seems more likely at this point that I’ll get it for Peace or Literature rather than chemistry/medicine :P. But if it were for a discovery/invention, it would probably be an unintended one that is somewhat related to my interests like a new genetic regulator/system that can be used for genetic manipulations or gene control in ways that weren't known before. Speaking of which, shoutout for this year’s winners Doudna and Charpentier! Using CRISPR as a genetic tool is indeed an amazing invention and they are worthy of it (along with the folks who actually discovered it if you ask me like Francisco Mojica, but never mind, the politics of science).

@Skarmizard - Ah, a tough question, I had so many deaths, and most of them were rather sad. But the one that usually comes to mind when I’m asked this question is the death of
Scythe my Incineraor. He was such a hero, bless his soul, and made me totally fall in love with this evolutionary line. He was with me throughout the hardest moments, and I lost him to Lusamine in one of the hardest battles I ever had. He fell to her Milotic (which shows you how desperate I was sending him against it), after surviving thanks to his affection, and still dying in the end. I want to believe his spirit continued inside his best buddy Quake the Hariyama which he made it all the way to the end.

Fun as always! Who’s next?

It’s been a while I felt, might as well give it a try! (I’ve been avoiding going for a while in order to keep this fresh.)

Redninjapuffles are known to want to create their own nuzlocke stories or comics, however, many have yet to start one.
What was your best nuzlocke moment?
