I wish!Actually, since you are playing Platinum, you can get a gabite in victory road, meaning you still have a chance to get a garchomp!
Barry sent that Munchlax out specifically to spite me, I know it.I hate that Multi-Battle with Barry so much. The one, singular time he doesn't lead off with Staraptor, and it's when he's working with you.
Thanks man!nice work!
Glad you agree. The Distortion World is a gorgeous to look at, but I just wish the wall walking sections didn't have such wonky controls!I'm with you on the coolness but also mild frustration of the Distortion World,
She could have just snapped her fingers and had her Garchomp devour Cyrus, but no, she's gonna make the kid who doesn't even have all their gym badges do the work!and calling out Cynthia for not actually doing a damn thing during this whole segment.
Thank you! I was so sure that I was going to lose someone to Cyrus, but I'm glad that didn't end up happening after all.Anyway, congrats on making it through deathless! Let's hope you can continue that trend through the endgame!
I'm not a huge fan of the "Giratina=Satan" mentality, but this line still gave me a good laugh.
Well sir, you've come to the right person!
I've been known to crush people so thoroughly that they'd rather spend eternity with Satan than live in the same world as me.
Oh yeah definitely, it's a comforting feeling in a way.Always nice to return to your roots, where it all began
Honestly, the only reason I make that connection nowadays is just because that was my first impression of Giratina as a kid, but in reality the lore doesn't really line up with Giratina being Satan - at this point though it's sorta just a running gag in my mind. Glad I still got a chuckle outta you though!I'm not a huge fan of the "Giratina=Satan" mentality, but this line still gave me a good laugh.
Yes! I completely agree! So many random trainers seem to have decent coverage movesYeah, Volkner's really not that threatening if you have a good Ground type, is he? Almost makes me wish his Raichu had Grass Knot or something—not to get more Nuzlockers' Pokémon killed, though.
Yeah, that was my reaction to losing Glyph too...Oh hey looks like you made it through with no deaths!
Oh yeah, it's the absolute worst.Oh my god...not the Nuzlocke classic of "shit rival gets lucky and manages to kill a great Pokemon JUST before the Elite Four" scenario.
You hate to see it. You really do.
A true champion's work is never really done!Nice work on becoming champion, but it looks like you still have more to do, good luck
Oh yeah, Beau making it all the way through to the end feels like the real prize.RIP all the fallen, but I am glad Beau made it
I feel like Aaron played a part - absolutely.Honestly, I wonder if Aaron was a factor in Game Freak revamping the structure of the Elite Four in Gen V. When you grind for Cynthia, he's hardly an obstacle at all.
Listen - I'll admit there are some pretty good bug types out there (Scolipede is one of my favorite Pokemon) but in general there are a lot of pretty bad bug types. Like you said: the type chart is not kind to them.(Though I do have to disagree with you about Bug types; I think they can be awesome, and Gen IV really helped in that regard. Admittedly, the type chart isn't very kind to them, but still.)
Beau surviving through to the end and playing the biggest part in defeating Cynthia was absolutely the highest point of the last chapter - while the disaster with Lucien and losing Bean were the lowest points...Wow, what an intense way to end the nuzlocke! Sorry it was kind of rough—I'm genuinely surprised that that Espeon survived Zen's Shadow Ball—but you made it through in spectacular fashion. And at least Beau made it! Way to go, you tenacious Luxray!
This is honestly a huge compliment - thank you! I had a lot of doubts when I first posted my run (I cannot begin to tell you how nervous I was when I hit submit the first time) but knowing that there are people out there that actually enjoy my work; that genuinely makes me happier than I can express!I'm glad you feel so good about posting your run here! I certainly enjoyed reading it. Your writing is fun, bringing both humor and relatable observations.
This is actually a fantastic piece of feedback!If I had to give one piece of constructive criticism, I'd encourage you to consider how much you include in your run—there were a lot of screenshots, many of which would be familiar to anyone who's played Platinum before. If you have in mind an audience who hasn't necessarily done so, that's okay, but maybe also keep in mind that those who have will be scrolling through a lot of stuff they've seen before. I'd say it's okay not to cover absolutely everything even if your audience isn't intimately familiar with the game you're playing.
I was genuinely shocked to see that Beau made it to the voting round, but I am honestly ecstatic about it none-the-less! It feels like such an honor to know that there are enough people out there that like my run to even have had it nominated in the first place!Congratulations on the successful completion of this run—and on Beau making it to the voting round of the Extravaganza! I hope that gives you another shot of pride in your work.
