@Trollkitten : 🤞 Please don’t be boring, please don’t be boring… 🤞

@Empty Sun :


@RubyClaw : Yeah, it really wasn’t. :( The real problem with Deep Cuts is that Kenya is almost always on my HGSS teams, so I’d like to try something different. (Oni Blood doesn’t make Fearow too different from how it normally plays.) Yes, that’s my guidebook! I bought these for every Pokemon game between gen 4 and gen 7. I always tell myself, “No, you don’t need to dredge these up. The Internet has all the information you need.” And yet, how else am I supposed to flex my Poke-fandom to people who see my living space!?

@SayleeK : I must admit to being excited to listen for the Charles Martinet voice easter eggs. My takes on the cast are the same as yours: The comedic actors should be fun, and Chris Pratt is… gonna be Chris Pratt.

@Spectacles : And the Houndour line continues to get the short end of the stick! You can only get Houndour before the Hall of Fame in Platinum and X! Technically, Poke Pelago in Ultra Sun too, but Poke Pelago encounters are so weird that I usually don’t count them. >_> It is a grave injustice that needs to be fixed if we ever get Johto remakes re-made! 😤

@Skarmizard : Same! Why Johto felt the need to hide so many of its Pokemon, I’ll never know.
AOTD: I saw the Sonic movie when it debuted in U.S. theaters (Valentine’s Day), and that was an amazing experience, so I want to see if I can chase that Sonic movie euphoria. I need a Mario superfan in my group, though, to match the energy the Sonic superfan in my group had….

You're right, Tubba Blub, the Ilex Forest encounters are good EXP for you.

Speaking of bottom tier, let’s hope I don’t get a bottom tier encounter coming out of Ilex Forest and into Route 34. *sweats in 5% Ditto chance*

Ooh, a female Drowzee! Great for Whitney!

Even if I choose not to catch one because of its lorerule, I need a Drowzee to get Muscle… 👀 Speaking of lorerule, let’s see which one this has….
b_eF4UMoGwxFJ1QlMjn2UPyikshGf_0RpJIvMDvY2xG_Pmq50vqvfOTujAAyTR9jkg9VG2RGOxAwFL1c_4VHxWhViqp7eY8Xe_KxNONK3j0m0d69-OPRNHRA6Hm0mVw0YDknKqA
While Drowzee/Hypno is in your party you may ignore the effect of lore rules of Psychic type pokemon as you catch them and may cancel the lore rules of every other Psychic pokemon in your party . Drowze/Hypno can’t have two moves of the same type. You can use HM guides (slaves) instead of teaching your pokemon HMs.
While Johto doesn't have that many psychic types, the ability to use HM guides is a boon. (*screams in Whirlpool*) Although @RubyClaw , does a Chosen of Ganesha need to be in the party in order to use HM guides? 🤔 Even if that is the case, only having one psychic STAB move isn't much of a loss in a world before Psyshock.

Would I Use This Pokemon?
Yes (preferred lorerule).

Route 34= Merlee the Drowzee: Chosen of Ganesha.

I had no idea she was in Super Paper Mario as well as Paper Mario 1 and Thousand Year Door??? The more you know! 🌈

Now to catch a second Drowzee for Muscle~

Wait. Since I'm not rolling for that Drowzee, I should roll for Muscle.

This courageous Pokemon must be placed first in your party while you are walking in a forest, cave, dungeon or evil-team building, in which you never travelled in before.
Considering that many caves are full of rock types anyway, putting a fighting type up front makes logical sense. Although if I were encountering a rival fight in a cave/evil team building (both of which happen in HGSS), I would need to put Goombario up front right before that battle, right? @RubyClaw At any rate, I have no intentions of bringing this Machop anywhere I'll need its guardianship for, so let's go!!!

Would I Use This Pokemon?
Yes.

Sorry, Tubba Blub, I need to train up Muscle our coming attraction for Whitney. 😔 I don't want to use her long-term, but I want to have her at least trained up.

Kids, if you get an offer like this in real life, the correct answer is no.

Not letting kids have unfettered access to agriculture when you have an endemic endangered species of tree to protect, I see. Good move.

...Do I buy it now? 🤔 Bayleef gets Light Screen at level 36 in this game, but Meganium doesn't get it until level 40…. Oh, who am I kidding? There's no debate to be had! Dual screens is too good! 💸

And, honestly, the TMs Light Screen and Reflect are cheap. Seriously, if you're struggling in any nuzlocke (or, at least, a nuzlocke of a game where these moves can be bought, like HGSS and DPPt), invest in these moves.

Well, now that Goombario has ascended, let’s go to the movies!

Autistic writer who starts more things than she finishes. Hyper asexual lorewriter and worldbuilder. Rather be a happy shill than an angry critic.
Probably my 'best' example of encounter luck was in my Let's Go Eevee nuzlocke (the one I based Ori's Gift around) where I got a Caterpie in Viridian Forest, only to suddenly spot a freaking shiny Metapod in the grass and immediately Shiny Clause it. An excellent example of really, really good encounter luck paired with hilariously not-good encounter luck.

Does a Chosen of Ganesha need to be in the party in order to use HM guides? 🤔
Sadly, the Drowzee has to stay in your party for this to work. That's true for most passive positive effects in lorerules unless it is specifically stated or implied otherwise.

Although if I were encountering a rival fight in a cave/evil team building (both of which happen in HGSS), I would need to put Goombario up front right before that battle, right?
Ooh, it is always tricky when two lorerules contradict one another, but in this case I think it's pretty clear the intention was indeed that in those rare cases the Symbol of Imperial Authority rule will be the more dominant one. So yeah I agree, Goombario first.

BTW I admit Personal Guardian is one of those older rules I made when I just started coming up with the lorerules and even though I really like its flavor it has some bizarre mechanics. But hi, that's part of the fun of the lorelocke right? How different every rule is.

Best encounter luck? Hmm, nothing specific that comes to mind. I did get pretty lucky over all though with my encounters in both my randomized Nicknames Alphabetlocke and No-PC-Box Nuzlocke having very diverse solid teams when such rules can really screw up with you if you are unlucky.

Despite being a Grass-type, Casual is a flaming lesbian. Fire and Grass don't usually mix, but somehow it works out here.
My best example of encounter luck... probably a Wonderlocke I did in Y like five years ago.

Let's see... my starter went for a breedject Deino, my first catch went for a 2IV breedject Vulpix with Pokerus, my Route 4 catch was a White Flabebe (1% chance) that went for a breedject 3IV Misdreavus (literally my second-favorite mon of all time), and one of my catches between gyms 2 and 3 went for a 5IV breedject Feebas.

All four of them ended up on my final team and kicked serious ass, with the Feebas (eventually a Milotic) becoming my MVP.

This Pokémon is trying its best to fight the good fight.
Congratulations on making it further in such a complicated run! I look forward to the Whitney battle, as well as to the trivialization of catching things with those super-early ultras.

Best encounter luck would prolly just be in Let's Go Pikachu when I was just beginning to work on rounding out my box, I ran into a shiny charizard out of nowhere. I wasn't even thinking about that yet!

This Skarmory/Charizard fusion is very rare and tends to be quiet and shy until befriended. Also writes and is a huge fan of Smash Bros.
Two solid catches and neither one has a detrimental lore rule, nice! I think I can already hear Whitney crying (not that I want her to cry, but obviously I want you to have a flawless battle).
Question: either an Adamant Kangaskhan in Moon, a shiny Adamant Whismur in Emerald, or a shiny Naughty Staraptor in Diamond (less than an hour in, too). I also got a shiny +Attack Trapinch in a Moon wonderlocke that came with EQ/Rock Slide/Crunch.

@Trollkitten : You @ Caterpie:

@SayleeK : Aw, a Cubone in Pokemon Tower! :pleading: That tells a story. 👀 I love when Pokemon have unexpected coverage! (Which is pretty rare before gen 4.)

@Empty Sun : 💪 ❤️

@RubyClaw : Good to know! might need to make a training playlist for merlee then I do love the flavor of Personal Guardian and the story potential of Goombario and The Master butting heads. No PC Box runs are something I could never do! (And Alphabetlockes are so fun to read but with your team in constant flux it’s hard to manage resources.)

@CasualGameFreak : Wonderlockes are always a source of such interesting encounters.

@Lumaeus : Hooray for early Ultra Balls! Let’s Go shiny hunting looks so fun, since you can see your prize.

@Skarmizard : Shiny and a helpful nature!? You are blessed!
AOTD: I got an Adamant Gible in my first Platinum nuzlocke. I love you, Escargot! ❤

Level 13= no Foresight on Muscle.

Level 19= no Seismic Toss on Muscle.

I could go north of Goldenrod now, before Whitney, but I don't see any encounters there that will help against Whitney, so… (If you aren’t allowing the use of in-game trades and you also got unlucky with Heracross, I will note that in HGSS, both Nidos get Double Kick at level 9, which they will still have regardless of if you catch a level 12 specimen or a rare level 13 specimen on Route 36. And by “rare,” I mean “SoulSilver exclusive.” For some reason. >_>)

I’m all for different versions of the game having different encounter tables but is varying the levels of the encounters by one really the best way to do it..?

If only he could grow up into a Togekiss before the Elite Four..! 😭 Curse you, post-game-only evolution stones!

Level 19= no Mud Bomb on Mini-Yoshi.

Level 16= no Hyper Fang on Ms. Mowz. (I considered it, but Hyper Fang doesn’t have 100% accuracy and I want to ensure my team has a Headbutt user, and Ms. Mowz is the best candidate for that in the long-term.)

Level 19= no Encore on Bobby. (I am not smart enough to predict the AI’s moves reliably.)

Everyone is level 19! (Except Ms. Mowz, who is level 17.)

Grinding playlist highlight:

This is a re-write of Pokemon Sword and Shield’s story that maintains the same beats and takes on a realistic tone for the Pokemon franchise.

I share the poster’s sentiments that Sword/Shield has interesting themes. That’s why one (of many) of my storylocke ideas is a Shield storylocke! 🛡️ ✍️ (A medieval-magic-flavored dragon monolocke, I’m thinking, because there aren’t too many Pokemon games that give you access to early-game dragons. 🐉 )

@Trollkitten : You @ Caterpie:

Actually I did train up that Caterpie into a Butterfree, and put it in the Day Care to gain levels in case I lost my shiny which I did. Unfortunately I had no way of knowing that in LGPE, Pokemon don't learn moves in the Day Care, so it was stuck with an useless moveset and I pretty much missed out on Quiver Dance, so I never actually used it.

This is a re-write of Pokemon Sword and Shield’s story that maintains the same beats and takes on a realistic tone for the Pokemon franchise.
I've seen that show up in my feed, but have never taken the time to actually watch it because it's a long video and I have a short attention span. Maybe I'll watch it sometime when I'm grinding...
QOTD: What do you think of the news about TMs and the EXP Share in BDSP?
I wish the Exp. Share could be turned off, but I'm not terribly sad about the TMs being single-use only. Why? Because with the broken Exp. Share that can't be turned off, the game needs SOME level of challenge to it. (Which is why my nuzlocke ruleset for Shining Pearl is going to be the hardest ruleset I've ever played. To make up for the fact that my team will be ridiculously overleveled and also have three freaking mythicals on it.)

I also really liked that video and think they did a pretty good job changing not too much but just enough to keep the essence of the SwSh story and still make it reasonable, realistic and actually interesting to follow this time. Oh the Team Rocket art is adorable!

Great job defeating Whitney, and cool to see Bobby actually helping.

Oooh man. Props to you for playing Voltorb Flip for so long to put a TM on a mon this early in the game. I physically can’t give any Pokémon a single use TM until we’re knocking on the league’s door because I’m afraid it’s gonna mean certain death and the waste of said TM. And then for Bobby to have such a close call in that battle! Yikes! Thank goodness everything turned out okay!

This Skarmory/Charizard fusion is very rare and tends to be quiet and shy until befriended. Also writes and is a huge fan of Smash Bros.
:psyduck: at Togetic learning Flamethrower. Also that battle was more intense than I expected!
But at least it all went well in the end. And that cutscene broke my heart too...even though I knew it was coming, it still was the saddest a game's made me since the WoL opening...
Question: I HATE the perma-Exp Share with a passion, but I wonder if it might not be as bad since DP had some awkward level spikes (especially the endgame-Cynthia was like 12? levels above Volkner IIRC). I'm a little more ok with single-use TMs though since that'll at least leave some level of challenge, although I would've preferred they kept TRs from SwSh.
