Pokédex Entry
This Pokemon is not a Pokemon at all. Do not trust your eyes.
1. Only catch the first Pokemon in each Route or Area. Caves count as one area and gifts count in the area they are received. All starter Pokemon however count as the area in which you can first nickname them. Some routes based on game have a Pinwheel Forest Clause applied to them.
1a. Dupes clause, you can skip any encounter of a Pokemon from a family you already have caught. This is your choice. If you want two Pidgeot on your team be my guest~
1b. Shiny Clause: Shiny Pokemon may be caught and used regardless of any other rule. This includes the Red Gyarados
1c. HM slaves can be caught used if none of the Pokemon you own can learn an HM to continue progress. HM slaves have to be released once you catch a Pokemon that can learn this move.

2. Faint =Dead. If it reaches 0 HP, its dead and must be boxed or released. Regardless of any factor.

3. Nickname all Pokemon, they are your partners and need the love of a name.

4. Games end as follows:
Kanto: Pokemon League Champion
Johto: Johto League Champion
Hoenn: Hoenn League Champion
Sinnoh: Sinnoh League Champion
Black/White: Stop Ghetsis
Black2/White 2: Unova League Champion
Kalos: Kalos League Champion
Alola: Alolan League Champion
Galar: Complete the Champion Cup and Defeat Leon

5. There is no Rule 5

6. You may use ROM hacks that change encounters and trainers or randomizers that change encounters only. You may not roll moves, items, natures, types, or abilities into the randomizer. Fell free to randomizer leader mons though :)

7. Legendary Pokemon are banned from use.

8. Your team is decided by their name, hence the name of the challenge. There are a few different ways to handle this. You can go by species name or nickname. You also have to decide at the beginning of the challenge if your going with normal alphabet order or a reverse order. Which ever methods you choose, the 6 Pokemon of your team are decided by the highest letters on your list, this applies for both regular and reserve order. If you go with nicknames, use a random generator to get your names so the fates may decide your team. If you obtain a Pokemon with a letter higher than what is on your team, you must replace the Pokemon with the lowest letter in the list. If you like you may have the letter than affects your team switch between gyms or towns.

Hello and welcome to my first ever attempt at a UCL

No I don't know what a UCL2 is

In fact this is my first ever post on the Nuzlocke Forums

Letsa go



Fun fact: This is my first time playing FireRed

And I should specify some things:
Alphabetlocke applies to species name, normal order
Dupes clause will be ignored, at least for Kanto (there's no pokemon variety anyway so what's the point)



Frankly I'm impressed at how accurate this name is going to be



Yeah



Don't comment about the POTION I got the POTION



B is highest letter out of the starters so clearly I should choose the GRASS POKéMON BULBASAUR



You have to water him



I killed some kid's dog

And then I got some unidentitified package to get an iPhone 4 in exchange



This is me encountering a rat and going 'I don't have POKé BALLs yet do I?'



This is my reaction to learning I did, in fact, have POKé BALLs



Also I caught these losers in route uhhh, two I think and forest



SNACK fulfilled his destiny



Well, that's unfortunate! Hopefully a sad event such as this does not occur again anytime soon!



I have a BULBASAUR, LEADER BROCK is a pussy bitch



Who decided to delay RUNNING SHOES this long



PISS got watere-wait

Uh oh

IVYSAUR doesn't start with a B

This is a conundrum for sure...



Problem solved!



I sure hope you didn't expect me to actually swap out my trained team members for a level 23 loser down the road

Circumventing the rules through wanton murder is half the fun of an alphabetlocke



The worst show in the yeah you get it



Viewer engagement quiz!

What POKéMON do you think I will get in MT. MOON?

a: ZUBAT
b: ZUBAT
c: ZUBAT
d: NOT ZUBAT



Wow! You were right! Unless you chose D in which case HAHA LOSER



Anyway



I don't remember how this happened



Look it's the false prophet or whatever



I didn't get lost in MT. MOON at all



Also I was switch training OOH AHH MONKEY through MT. MOON

I tried to switch train BIRD UP too but that didn't go so well :(



I'm very good at this game



Hey did you know EKANS is SNAKE backwards? I thought that was some good trivia



I have an IVYSAUR, LEADER MISTY is a pussy bitch



I tried to train up EKANS (sorry I can't be borthered to type that many Es) for RIVAL LOSER but she died lol



I suppose I'll just have to wipe to RIVAL LOSER and start again



Type 1 in the chat if you think I'll die to PIDGEOTTO



I wouldn't be posting this if I did, moron.



Aw fuck



No need to show the rest they don't pose a threat to PISS



Hello and welcome to my IVYSAUR sololocke



I don't know why I took this picture but I'll include it anyway



Oh no... not the useless CATERPIE...



Let's see how long this bird lasts



Yeah I'm running out of things to say but here's a bigger bird



I did thing



Well I suppose I'll take the MEOWTH if I have to



Where the fuck do I go then



Right, I have to go into nondescript building. That makes sense to me!



Turning off dupes clause might not make sense to you people but I'd rather not sit on these routes for half an hour looking for the one new POKéMON they added to each route



WHAT? I never expected to catch a DIGLETT in DIGLETT'S CAVE?????



Also I caught this dog



I'm on a boat

Look every Nuzlocke in 2014 made this joke too



I really should just use PISS



Here we go again



Well it would have been a problem if I didn't have a CHARMELEON counter



WHAT??? There's three of them????



end my suffering



Don't ask me how long that took



I have a DUGTRIO, LEADER LT. SURGE is a pussy bitch



god this game fucking sucks

This Pokemon is inconcievably cute. It tries to intimidate its foes with its long, luscious locks, but to little avail.
honestly you're playing this alphabetlocke the way god intended

Probably some kind of coding prank. Never seen outside of box 3. Is a slob apparently.
More sacrifices made to the Nuzlocke gods.

I assume there'll be more blood when Piss reaches final form?

Replacing POKéMON is playing the game WRONG and I am proving it
More sacrifices made to the Nuzlocke gods.

My piss becomes more powerful with each blood sacrifice

Are you ready? Because I'm about to put on a show.



In this episode of TOP GEAR I exchange a blank piece of paper for a BICYCLE
JAMES MAY goes to prison in my stead
RICHARD HAMMOND crashes a car again lol



I would have liked the VOLTORB actually but PISS is too accustomed to murder to listen to reason



Now it's time for hell



It's a CHRISTMAS miracle!



After fumbling about in the dark for approximately 8.7 years I found the ROCK SLIDE tutor



I lived



PISS evolved but I pressed A on the screen like a dummy



Oh I didn't know he was here



However he was like 6 levels below me so it's whatever



Can't you pick a less roadblocky place to plonk your fat ass



No



Oh, this again



I don't need another one of these



This, however, will do

Too bad there's no stone to turn it into a GHOST TYPE



Speaking of stones, I dumped off this useless one



Oh no! Anyway



It's time to spill it



Hell yeah



I tried out some gambling but it was extremely boring

Get me some Voltorb Flip smh



I discovered that evolution stones are sold here



I'm so glad that JOLTEON gets THUNDERSHOCK and THUNDER as its only two ELECTRIC moves in this game

I would have taken DISCHARGE y'know



Blah blah blah I have a PIDGEOTTO whatever



ROCKET HIDEOUT time



Let us all point and laugh at this imbecile who dropped the LIFT KEY



Unsurprisingly BOSS GIOVANNI did not put up a fight



Yoink

Hope SILPH doesn't need this SCOPE anytime soon



Honestly, why do we even have a graveyard in this show if nobody ever dies?



This GASTLY doesn't deserve a spot in my team, but it might make a good coaster for my DRINK



BIRD UP



Put ghostbusting on my resume



WHAT lived a level 26 KOFFING SELFDESTRUCT

I'm glad she survived, dying in a graveyard is bad manners



Apparently.



Finally, the fatass moving stick



Some say it's bad to poke sleeping bears



I can see why



Well that's unfortunate



Why did I get this before the GOOD ROD



Killing SNORLAX has denied me the chance to encounter and kill another PIDGEY

What a shame



Anyway



This place plays the evolution music and I don't know why



Fucking hell



How do you even lose your teeth

I mean false ones I know about gum disease



Yes I got SURF



I would say 'Lord give me strength' but this guy did it for me



Turns out the bike doesn't have bike physics so it's actually enjoyable to use



I wonder if I'll ever encounter something I actually want to catch



I don't know why I took this picture



Move fatass



Fly away



This is stupid



Wonder what this could be



Door stuck



You fool, I'm also a black belt in karate



I think I want neither of them actually



Next time, I think

"Am I Mario's babysitter? Are you going to call me every time that guy blows his nose, or what?"
Me when I realize I have to remember the alphabet to read this run. 😔

Circumventing the rules through wanton murder is half the fun of an alphabetlocke
So is this a notepad run, then? 🤔 (As in, no PC usage.)

You know, PISS and a team member have never been seen alive in the same room together... *puts on tinfoil hat*
Honestly, why do we even have a graveyard in this show if nobody ever dies?
because piss pisses on the graves

You better get remembering then I need my viewers
If there is a POKéMON in my PC at the end of this run I am a failure
PISS and team members have a special kind of understanding. They live as long as he allows it

You can all come back now I've risen from the grave
Don't even start to judge me for taking 3 months to update I'm too busy to play this stupid game
Besides I'm still on track to complete this UCL as long as I finish KANTO by the end of the month
Therefore, this is gonna be a quickfire round
Hold on to your hats, wigs, e.t.c.



War... has changed.
It's been 3 long months since TEAM ROCKET executed their takeover of the SILPH CO. building...
And I'm the only one who gives a shit



After running around taking teleporters at random I found a CARD KEY that opens DOORS



Naps are an important component of tactical espionage (and I took lots of them)



Now for the only remotely threatening battle in this whole place



Oh don't even start



Anyway RIVAL LOSER goes down like a chump like he always does and will (for sure)



What's this? A new POKéMON? For free?



haha boat



If it isn't GEODUDE



My skills have doubled since the last time we met, COUNT.



I'm sure I'll eventually find an encounter I actually want
...Maybe.



A surprise tool that will help me later (and right now)



Apparently I forgot to document it but I taught PSYCHIC to BOAT to make LEADER KOGA a joke
LEADER SABRINA just died or something idk



Who put food colouring in the water



More like TENTADROOL because I don't want it



I can't think of a good caption for this one it's just SEAFOAM ISLANDS



Did you also forget this is an ALPHABETLOCKE?



I'll save you the headache and just skip to the part where I got bored and flew to PALLET TOWN to SURF south instead



Or maybe it's a pull door



The encounters in this game are awe inspiring, truly



Forgot to detail me picking this up but the MANSION was just me wandering around lost until I stumbled upon the solution, much like every other dungeon in this game



I still think this should be a POKéMON MOVE
Does anybody appreciate the capital letters gimmick I have to copy paste the é every time and it's killing me



If only there was a WATER HEAL for LEADER BLAINE



Fuck no



Ah ha, the STUPID ISLANDS are optional after all! Excellent



Shit.



Oops! Things were going a little too well, to be honest. Had to happen eventually, right?
Ha ha. This sucks.



Of course, WHAT's death won't have an effect on LEADER GIOVANNI's battle at all



This guy, however,



Almost wiped to CHARIZARD :)
QUICK ATTACK really came in clutch there
Too bad I didn't bother to document the full battle but this is a UCL I don't owe you shit



And now for VICTORY ROAD



...But first, I want to fill that empty slot.



Using my supreme intellect and skill I have deduced that there is an area of interest south of here



My original plan was to catch ZAPDOS but then I remembered that the rules suck



So this will have to do instead



It's an honor, sir



Remember, kids: gambling is bad



Probably should have got this ages ago, but it's not overdue until I'm dead



MR MASCOT also got BRICK BREAK but I'm too stupid to hit the screenshot button more than twice



Oh look I formatted the next picture to show it off wow I'm EINSTEIN actually



The mascot of POKéMON, just as I remember it



For you, MR PRESIDENT



And then I put the game down for 3 months LOL



Gotta make this a 3 hour game somehow, am I right



The hardest of all the stupid puzzles this game chucks at me constantly



Classic oatmeal



All I did was push rocks, sir



HELP deserves to be the most powerful level 16 MEOWTH there is



Sweet freedom



What the hell is this supposed to be, game



The ELITE 4 awaits...
...But first I gotta grind again : )
Next time I kick that there LOSER to LOSERVILLE and back

Perhaps it is customary to not update twice in one day however my days of freedom are running out and I want Kanto to run out too



Hi again. It's me.



I bet you're wondering why I didn't include a team update with the last update
No, I didn't forget, moron, I'm doing the classic in depth one now



Ah, PISS, the early game carry and the reason why I murdered so many encounters along the way
Sadly, he won't see too much use in the ELITE 4
Which is why I gave him GIGA DRAIN
EARTHQUAKE is there because I had the TM and I wanted to use it



BIRD UP, the original BIRD UP there definitely isn't a dead BIRD UP in my PC BOX that this BIRD UP replaced
Here for BRUNO and maybe a few other picks
PP is no longer a concern so I gave him AERIAL ACE for the no miss



CRAMP is going to be very important
He's fast, strong and there's plenty of utility for an ELECTRIC type coming up
I gave a PP UP to THUNDERBOLT because that's the only move he's going to use
Let's knock some GYARADOS dead



The role of an ELECTRIC type is so important it's very helpful to double up
MR MASCOT is here to take some of the load off of CRAMP's shoulders
He has plenty of coverage and status availability but frankly I will just be clicking THUNDERBOLT



The star of the show
AGATHA and LANCE would be very tricky fights if not for BOAT
And the main answer to LOSER's CHARIZARD, which will probably kill anybody else on the team in one hit
There's a lot riding on this BOAT today



Let us hope you are not needed for death fodder



It's time to begin.



LORELEI uses a lot of ICE types



Lol
Lmao



don't waste my PP >:(



WATER and WATER and WATER WATER



LAPRAS is the first to live one THUNDERBOLT



One THUNDERBOLT



She missed a LOVELY KISS and that would have been the only contribution she made to the battle



Next



ONIX is not a good POKéMON



BIRD UP



Well,



Luckily ROCK moves suck so even having coverage is not enough to save BRUNO



BIRD UP (up)



scary :(



Pictured: I missed FLY



Pictured: hey what the fuck



Pictured: haha owned



I choose to use BOAT's PSYCHIC to clean up



oh right LAPRAS is an ICE type



Yeah okay



BRUNO might as well have 3 POKéMON



I am going to click PSYCHIC until GHOST go poof



Thou vile harlot



Missing is overrated anyway



Nice GHOST type



I killed them



Yeah



Maybe going into the ELITE 4 in detail wasn't necessary but we're almost there at least
This does bode well for the next GYARADOS I have to take out



DRAGONS are unbeatable until you put them in the freezer



I could have picked up an AERODACTYL, now that I think about it
Oh well!



Did I repost the last DRAGONAIR images? Or did I take new screenshots for this one?
You will never know



It's a DRAGONITE vs a LAPRAS what did you think was gonna happen



Easiest ELITE 4 of my life



Pack it up gamers we won



What a twist!!! Who could have seen this coming???



hey c'mon that's unneccessary



Luckily I have one sneaky trick up my sleeve



Thinking back it would have been a funnier joke to give HELP 7 levels
But I like winning more than being entertaining



Speaking of winning,



The classic matchup



Oops! All THUNDERBOLTs!



I want to save BOAT for CHARIZARD so here's PISS to commit one last murder for the road



The end of an era is bittersweet



Gotta include everybody



They are evenly matched...



Except in SPEED



BIRD UP



The worst run on the NUZLOCKE FORUMS



how dare



Luckily I followed the advice of LANCE and stocked up on over 100 FULL RESTORES



This is what you've been training for



Your ancestors would be proud



Here we go. The final boss is here.



The clash of titans



Just one more SURF oughta close things out



But of course I can't have an update without a death



Too bad your reign of terror ends here, CHARIZARD



HOO HAA



Now that's what I call justice



get fucked on LOSER



I'm outta here

Next time I start Johto but that might be a while from now LOL

Preferring to operate in the dark, this pokemon is quick to obtain and discard many behaviors.
HELP was definitely the MVP of that run.
