There are mons with only two-three moves in SuMo as well. Not sure if this happens so much in USUM or SwSh, though.

Cyrus's Weavile in the Distortion World got TWO freezes, one of which didn't matter due to the Lum Berry, but still. In a run where I can't use healing items in battle. I came very close to wiping and now I have to grind half a team's worth of replacements, which sucks as I have little bulk since Lickilicky was one of the casualties.

None of my Pokemon were a good counter for Totem Araquanid. (I don't like changing my party unless a Pokemon faints.) I legit JUST lost my counter to Gladion not five minutes earlier.

In every Hoenn game, my first three Pokémon are usually Poochyena, Zigzagoon, and Wurmple. Sometimes, I even get a Wingull on Route 104, so I wind up with all of the Pokémon you can catch on the first two routes! Lotad or Seedot? Nah. Surskit? Nah. Ralts? Literally the one time I found a Ralts as a first encounter, it was in a Wedlocke, so I couldn't catch it because it had the same gender as the Pokémon that needed a partner! You know what that Pokémon's partner wound up being? A friggin' Wurmple. I've never felt so salty in my life.

Losing a Lanturn in Storm Silver to a trainer Dewgong's Sheer Cold. It was such an amazing Pokemon.

Battles the Cafe Masters in Motostoke and Hammerlocke literally 25 times each to get a Sweet other than the Strawberry Sweet to evolve Milcery.
Gets 38 Berry Juices, but 0 Sweets

In the end, I finally got a Berry Sweet after 136 battles. I feel sorry for anybody who tries to do a living dex and has to get 9 of each Sweet

I also had this insane plan on taking on the Dark and weather gyms using my dynamax fighting bear. But of course, the Max honey quest is post game. But if anybody know a way to get it beforehand, feel free to let me know, thanks.

In my on-going omega-ruby run, I've had a problem with keeping a full team. The sixth slot has become a graveyard as something almost always takes them out. Whether it's a helluva lucky crit, or a move I forget a pokemon could learn (sidebar: why does Leon's charizard know max growth????). And then the curse continues on into filling the sixth slot: either a 'mon of a type I already have three of, or a 'mon that needs to evolve before it can safely be left to fight by itself.

Needless to say, I haven't gotten very far.

A timid Pokémon typically found in groups. The only thing that motivates her more than companionship is food.
The move Air Slash and its stupid, stupid 30% flinch chance.

A silent watcher who speaks only when something needs to be said. Offers free hugs to those who need them.
But somehow seems to miss 30% of the time when you use it, despite being 95% accurate.
If it's not 100% accurate, it's 50% accurate. - MandJTV

A Pokémon shrouded in hearsay and urban legend, spoken of only in whispered tales and hushed gossip.
Pokemon games are actually hard coded so that the accuracy of a move with less than 100% chance decreases the more critical landing that move becomes.

I lost a Mankey and a Nidoran Male to my Rival's Magby. They would've come in handy and made the challenge against Brock in Fire Red Omega less of an issue.

This ghost tries to be studious and businesslike, but will squee or keysmash easily. They would love to cuddle every adorable cat in the world.
Me: *does my level best to train up one of the Snivy line in White 2 as he is a very good bean*

Roxie, Burgh, Elesa's Flying and Fire coverage, Skyla, Team Plasma and numerous routes populated by types that Grass hates: "~Allow us to introduce ourselves~"

Not since poor Chikorita in Johto have i seen a region out to get someone so much, my bean is still alive and swept Clay's Excadrill though so there is that :3: he is a child and I love him

Edit: oh god now I remember that Drayden, Iris, Zinzolin's Ice types, Colress and Ghetsis' Hydreigon are things hahaha dkdkdkd even the upcoming Celestial Tower is populated by Fire types because of course it is, can my bean just SubSeed the things that resist him already

X Wonderlocke.
The good news, I got an Adamant HA Tepig with a moveset of Sucker Punch, Superpower, Curse, and Heavy Slam.
The bad news: Its nicknamed "trumps taint", and since it's a traded mon, I can't do anything about it.
Well, you can always have it have a different name in your documentation of the run, if you'd prefer it that way (and if you're documenting the run, for that matter).

Redninjapuffles are known to want to create their own nuzlocke stories or comics, however, many have yet to start one.
Level curve in some games, like it can get really dumb, especially if there is no good grinding spots in-game to compesate
This is something that Insurgence does, really don't understand level curves in some mainline games

The upcoming 1.3 update promises to fix the level curve, or at least make it more bearable. Unfortunately, it's gonna take a while to come out.
