Nuzlocke What's the longest you've raised a pokemon before it died?

The longest level range of any Pokemon I've raised that died are four Pokemon I've raised from the beginning of the game only to die against the Champion. They were Humerus the Charizard, Maxilla the Pidgeot, Sternum the Butterfree, and Incus the Raticate in a Wedlocke. They all were raised from the single digits to around the 50s.

Humerus had a powerful Flamethrower and I used him to immolate enemies one of the hardest hitting special attackers. Maxilla helped with some of the rival battles.

Incus and Sternum were some of the most memorable Pokemon in any of my runs. Incus would wipe the floor with Psychics and dominated Sabrina's gym. Sternum took a Rock Tomb from Brock's Onix thanks to setting up Hardens and generally dominated with Sleep Powder/Substitute/Dream Eater/Giga Drain. She finally died to the champion's Arcanine and that was only after holding her own for many turns and making Arcanine burn through a few full restores and only fell because of a misclick. Sternum was practically my version of Petty's Lulu having helped taken down Brock, Koga, Sabrina, Giovanni, and Lorelei. Incus would rip apart Psychic types with Hyper Beam and Shadow Ball. Because I had Set mode on my Wedlocke, I took advantage of switching after the KO to use Hyper Beam to deadly effect in a manner similar to Gen I competitive battles.

A timid Pokémon typically found in groups. The only thing that motivates her more than companionship is food.
From about lv. 4 to lv. 57, from the very beginning of the game to the Elite Four. It doesn’t help that the poor ‘mon was oneshotted by a 2x effective coverage move.
Losing Pokémon in the postgame would have been even worse - I had two close calls with an 1st route catch from the same run that I’d caught at lv. 3 and got all the way up to lv. 62.

Preferring to operate in the dark, this pokemon is quick to obtain and discard many behaviors.
Amoeba, the alolan grimer/muk that i used in my (undocumented) Sun Wonderlocke. This tanky lad lasted me from island 1 all the way to Khali's Z-Beak Blast, and was the only death in the run.

This POKéMON is struggling to figure out what interesting stuff he can put into his Pokédex entry.
Lost my Leavanny, Snuggle, to a Rock Slide from Marlon's Carracosta in White 2 Challenge Mode. Level 2 to Level 55. Didn't know the thing had Sturdy. Saved my end so many times- she didn't deserve to be the first death (itself astonishing)

In my Omega Ruby nuzlocke, I lost a Pokemon in Victory Road that I'd had since it was level 7. It was level 45 at the time of its death.

Lenon the Magnezone from Level 11 to 51 in Black 2

He was a huge staple on my team surviving from many near team wipes. Discharge didn't take out Marlon's Jellicent and took a Brine to the face, dropping immediately. Definitely an MVP during my trip around Unova.

@Polymori You might like this thread! I know you have a good answer~

As for me, it would be the several times my starter died to N/Ghetsis in my various attempts at Black nuzlockes over the years. I think the biggest gap was Lv 5-67.

@MouseWithADinosaurTail
OMFG you're right! Thank you!
Not counting pokemon that never died, the longest a mon survived before dying was in my Blind Diamond locke (has the highest # of deaths in a locke Ive ever done).
My starter, a torterra by the name of Lime, died vs Flint. And before you judge me on using torterra against him, I only had 2 pokemon alive at that time cause outside ofVolkner's gym, my Luxray died. Then in victory road a mon died. Then only had 4 mains alive after that. Then Barry, the bastard, killed my gastrodon and haunter and at that point i had Lime and my abomasnow left and a team of mons i didnt give a fuck about. So I was all "FUCK IT IMMA TOSS THESE FUCKERS IN MY PARTY AND HOPE FOR THE BEST" and went in, made it to Flint. The rest died, but my abomasnow and torterra, both did as well against Flint as you'd expect :'3
Lime was lvl 5-60 something Its been a really really long time
And my Luxray was Lv 3-44 I only remember this one because it's the most bitter death I've had to date

Other than that, I think my Ribombee named Ambrosia died vs someone in the E4 of my Sun locke I believe!

In more recent lockes, I have a mon I got at level 5, and she died at lvl 63. Actually, I think she's probably tied with Lime if not longer lived, level wise.

@Polymori Bro how do you make this entire post and not even bring up your lv 1-50 torracat. That death hit you like a truck, I remember

Spoilers for my comic . . .

Neptune the Gyarados was on my team from level 5 to 62, and Kate the Crobat was on my team from level 6 to 63. They both lasted 57 levels, which is by far the longest I've had anyone on my team before they died.

I think I had a Red run (probably like over 5 years ago, maybe 8) in which I had a Pidgey/-eot that lasted from being first catch on Route 2 to dying against the champion's ... Blastoise or Charizard, it probably wasn't Venusaur. The annoying thing is, it would have been my only deathless run if not for that. I always manage to fuck up even when playing seriously and in a run that's going well, so never got closer than that in maybe 15, possibly even 20 runs or so I did across the years.

This Pokemon is a master of having too many projects at the same time. Also, Pikablu.
As far as I remember, the Pokemon that I raised for the longest time before its death was Charlie the Primarina in my UCL Sun run. He was my starter, obviously starting at level 5, and he died at level 56, going up against Kahili's Toucannon at the E4, alongside Ashens the Turtonator.

Their deaths kinda caused this whole knock-on effect which ultimately resulted on me losing two more mons against Acerola, and then one more against Kukui (although that one was admittedly my mistake). His absence was most definitely felt...

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.
My Leavanny was taken from Level 2 to Level... something - Champion level in BW2 - before being struck down by Caitlin. The fault was entirely mine for misclicking and leaving her out, 13 year old me was not paying attention that day D:

In actual bad luck, I've had 2 Starters die after being taken to pretty high levels. My Feraglitr in Heart Gold was OHKOed by a crit from Clair's Kingdra, and my Empoleon in Pokemon Rejuvenation was killed by a crit Aura Sphere from a high-level Togekiss. (Though to be fair I should've remembered that a Togekiss would have that move.) The earliest a Water Starter died was my Oshawott in Flocessy Ranch sldfkjhdslgjk I don't always do well with them rip
