This Pokémon can often be found alone in her room writing or reading. This is because she is an introvert who doesn’t feel like going outside today.

This writer spends many hours toiling over her endless pile of fics while being surrounded by snacks. If you approach her, she'll share them with you!
When I clicked this run, I was like "what do you mean 'e' is banned, mysterious runner, I'm so curious" and now I am just. who in the hell would do this to themselves huh.

Count me here for this wild, wild ride you've set yourself upon. I can't wait to see where this chaos goes.

I will absolutely name a dodrio tritosis if I get one

wet kong may not have been able to evolve but I will miss early access to scald

awww seeing panpour die to a nasty plot boosted incinerate is disheartening to say the least :(

yeah that was a really unfortunate death :(

I will absolutely be grinding up to be way overleveled for lenora so hopefully she won't kick my ass too hard

not if I have anything to say about it

w*t kong's non-living is our cosmos punishing you for crud* oil's alias
the cosmos will fear me in time

struggle strats might be... well, a struggle to pull off

yeah that was probably the strangest nuzlocke death i've ever had. who knew that torment and embargo would kill me

I will absolutely be overgrinding for lenora, don't worry

and I didn't even use any fire moves!

because I can't. they all have e in them.

do you mind I was about to find a more natural transition to the next major event

53.png


vote now on your phones

54.png
55.png


copying me as usual, cheren

(his staravia has reckless, by the way)

56.png
57.png


growl is the poor man's intimidate, cheren, simply catch a better starly

58.png
59.png


you are an amateur and a fool

60.png


how does cheren already have a roggenrola if he arrived from the same direction I did

61.png
62.png


a mystery for later, I suppose

63.png
64.png


do you MIND (he crit twice)

77.png
78.png


goodbye, you sad, sad creature

79.png
80.png


skill issue

81.png


yes cheren we have established that I have banned moves with the letter e in them

82.png
83.png


i don't know, I never took a screenshot of them

84.png


good question! if only I took a screenshot of them heading in the direction they were heading in!

85.png
86.png


the heavy is dead?!

87.png


but seriously, who killed heavy

88.png


hey it's been a while since I got my last encounter

route 3 encounters...
grass: taillow, lotad, shinx, abra, phanpy

these are... unimpressive, in general. shinx and abra are perfectly fine encounters, of course, but they are both rare and I am much more likely to get a taillow.

taillow is, uh, bad. it's also completely irrelevant because bird up exists.

however, starting on this route, we do have more options. a little later on there'll be dark grass, which has a different set of encounters compared to normal grass, and grass can also be shaking which also opens up new encounters. forget about shaking grass for now though, it'll be much more relevant later. the encounters in it now are uninspiring, to say the least.

dark grass: vulpix, hoppip, marill, houndour

these encounters are much better. I would be happy with any of them, really. so I will wait until I gain access to the dark grass and then get my encounter

89.png


luckily in the time I took to explain all of that, cheren found where the blue team went

90.png


oh nevermind it's just team plasma

91.png


they still killed heavy (I think) so they will be dismantled without mercy

93.png
94.png
95.png


lol. lmao.

96.png


i'm 21, dick

97.png


also here comes baby's first double battle. you may have noticed they have three pokemon each. this is going to get nasty.

98.png


you know cheren if your staravia had a good ability we'd be pulling off a cool strategy right now

also note that cheren is underleveled now

99.png


if we both stack quick attack on the voltorb, it should go down without using any funky moves that might hurt me

100.png


like that one

101.png


oh. I see

102.png


staravia then proceeds to attack the zubat, for some reason

103.png
104.png


my day be so fine... then boom! aftermath

better than selfdestruct, I guess

105.png


staravia finishes off zubat

106.png


that carvanha is scary. I'm going to get rid of it

107.png
108.png


I got rid of it (no rough skin, so that fucker had speed boost)

109.png


do you mind

110.png


I gotta potion but that poochyena should die anyway so it'll be fine

111.png


GROWL???

112.png


oh my god

113.png


you deserve that. you deserve worse.

114.png


it always starts with an accuracy drop...

115.png
116.png


good, no unfortunate misses

117.png


WHAT ARE YOU DOING

118.png


YOU DESERVE THAT TOO

119.png


hey bud. that's a steel type.

120.png
121.png


apollo you bastard

122.png
123.png


maybe I was wrong about you... (magnitude 10)

124.png
125.png


comedy comes in pairs

126.png
127.png


cheren finally found his brain cell and killed the damn pawniard

128.png


that was much more complicated than it needed to be.

129.png


says the man who used growl on a pawniard

TWICE

130.png


I guess I'll just have to call for the medic

131.png


unfortunately cheren does get some credit for the magnitude 10

luckily he gets -2 credit for the two growls so he gets no reward

132.png


heh heh heh the rod in this game does not have a stupid prefix like 'super' despite what bulbapedia says

that means fishing is on the table

133.png


but first I'll get the encounter I talked about earlier

134.png


looks like the choice is made for me. hoppip is definitely one of the better encounters here

135.png


that's not legal!!!

136.png
137.png


dispose of the spare...

138.png


put it to sleep...

139.png
140.png


there were some other steps involved but hey I caught it

141.png
142.png


hoppip -> skiploom -> jumpluff
base -> lv 18 -> lv 27
legal moves: agility (1), tail whip (7), acrobatics (34), u-turn (49), giga drain (59), cotton guard (74)
legal tm moves: toxic, sunny day, frustration, attract, round, acrobatics, giga impact, flash, psych up, grass knot, u-turn
abiltities: chlorophyll, prankster

hoppip is not very good. right now. in the future it'll get pretty strong stab moves, access to u-turn and has priority toxic with prankster. it can also fully evolve. the levels at which it gets moves look bad, I know, but if I simply don't evolve this hoppip until level 43, it will get access to its full moveset (excluding cotton guard) much earlier than level 59. this is definitely a pokemon I will want to train up in the future. for now, though...

143.png


this is a bucket.

som*thing will stay here until I can think of a better name for it

144.png
145.png


for now, though, I will get my only available fishing encounter that doesnt infringe on other encounters

striaton city encounters...
fishing: psyduck, staryu

146.png


staryu sounds cool until the realisation hits that you're stuck with rapid spin for a long time

psyduck might be a bit more helpful.

147.png
148.png


she has a headache, leave her be

149.png


psyduck -> golduck
base -> lv 33
legal moves: scratch (1), tail whip (5), hypnosis (12) confusion (18), cross chop (33), soak (37), psych up (44), hydro pump (63), tri attack (1, psyduck)
legal tm moves: psyshock, calm mind, toxic, hail, blizzard, frustration, dig, psychic, attract, round, focus miss, scald, fling, shadow claw, giga impact, flash, psych up, rock smash, surf
abilties: swift swim, cloud nine

I can see cloud nine coming in very handy. if this were black 2, it'd learn aqua tail at level 32. alas, pokemon games weren't fair to ducks yet, so we're stuck with no stab until I get my hands on the scald tm.

I miss panpour.

150.png


we have one final encounter for the day in here

wellspring cave...
cave encounters: woobat, zubat, aron, whismur, bronzor, teddiursa
dust encounters: drilbur

there's a lot of good pokemon in here, but there's one in particular I have my eye on as a potential powerhouse in this challenge...

151.png


oh. uh. I wasn't expecting to actually get it.

(if you're wondering why crude oil is damaged, it turns out geodude are faster than munna. I encountered quite a few of them in a row.)

152.png
153.png


named rats lovingly after the bronzor I caught in my previous blaze black playthrough

154.png


bronzor -> bronzong
base -> lv 33 (what a coincidence)
legal moves: confusion (1), hypnosis (7), imprison (12), rollout (16), gyro ball (38), faint attack (50), payback (61), trick (1, bronzong), gravity (1, bronzong), sunny day (1, bronzong), rain dance (1, bronzong)
legal tm moves: psyshock, calm mind, toxic, sunny day, rain dance, frustration, psychic, shadow ball, sandstorm, rock tomb, facade, round, payback, giga impact, rock polish, flash, gyro ball, psych up, grass knot, flash cannon, trick room, rock smash
abilities: levitate, heatproof

this pokemon is amazing. possibly the best pokemon I will ever get. of course, this was the first of three opportunities to get a bronzor, but at a 5% encounter rate in wellspring cave I had all but written the possibility off.

now that I have it, though... I can see the lenora battle going very smoothly. I can see the burgh battle going very smoothly. the world is my oyster with this pokemon, and levitate is the cherry on top. getting full special stab through tms is also very nice, and there's plenty of tools to play around with in its movepool and tm pool. I am very excited to use bronzor.

155.png


so, here's the team. one of the most important battles in the run is coming up, and I need to be ready for it.

next update may be a little short, but I have a lot of grinding to do if I want to survive lenora.

see you then.

ooooh, bronzor is DEFINITELY solid, and a very very lucky encounter! Absolute kudos to you for rigging some manner of luck to the Pokemon I affectionately called "a plate" for many years.

she has a headache, leave her be

important to mention my girlfriend loves psyduck because she also gets migraines so she Understands
