Hey guys, Lion here. So I've been doing some thinking, and I think I'm going to clear my Sun game. I just didn't feel like playing it as much while I was doing the Nuzlocke, so I want to focus on playing the game normally so I can get the full experience more easily.
With that said, I've decided to do a new Nuzlocke that'll hopefully be easier: a nuzlocke of Ruby version!
Since we're not dealing with new Pokemon anymore, I'm going to go vanilla Nuzlocke rules here: one Poke per route, and if it faints it's dead. However, I will allow Dupes clause.
With all that said, let's get to it!
Day 1 - 4/23/17
[I'd say spoilers ahead, but the game's 14.5 years old]
So after sitting through the professor monologue, I pick out my character: Lionel.
With this done, I leap into the world of Pokemon...by falling out of the back of a moving truck.
At the door to my new house in Littleroot Town is my mother, who sends me to my room as the mover Pokemon finish their work. I steal the potion from the PC and set the clock before Mom comes in to inform me that the move is complete. I then head downstairs, where she informs me that my father, Norman, is on the news. We miss him, but Mom informs me that a family friend, Professor Birch, lives next door, and sends me off to introduce myself.
After barging in uninvited, I meet Dr. Birch(I headcanon Mrs. Birch as a astronomer cuz wynaut)before being sent up to meet the one and only May(May x protag is second best May ship, IMO)
Being a bit too calm about a strange boy emerging into her room unannounced, May says hello before running off to help Birch with his research. With the introductions over with, I head out. As I walk home, I hear shouting coming from Route 1. I head there to find none other than Birch being chased by a Poochyena. I let him get mauled as I mull over my choices.
Since I don't use Grass Pokemon as often as I should, and since Grovyle is a total badass, I pick Treecko and Pound the Poochyena to death.
Grateful to me for saving his life, Birch decides to give me Treecko. Since I just had FE: Fates on the brain, Treecko's green, and he's kind of a ninja, I decide to name him Kaze. After resting at my house, I head off to Route 103 to find May. Along the way, I get a free Potion from the proprietor of Oldale Town's Poke Mart and Pound a couple Zigzagoons to death, allowing Kaze to level up to Level 6 and learn Absorb.
Upon running into May, she challenges me to a battle. After a couple Pounds, her Torchic falls, allowing Kaze to level up to Level 7. She heads back to the lab and I follow suit, stopping at the Mart to stock up on Potions and status heals.
Back at the lab, Birch gives me a Pokedex and May gives me some Poke Balls. As I head out to Route 1, Mom stops me and gives me the oh-so-glorious Running Shoes!
Now set to go be the very best like no one ever was, I run into Route 1 ready to make new friends!
My first encounter is a Zigzagoon...which Kaze fainted. Damn it, Kaze. You had one job.
Anyway, me and Kaze faint a Wurmple and heal at Oldale before heading into Route 103. On the first blade of grass, we find a Poochyena, which Kaze thankfully doesn't faint and which I catch successfully. I decide to name her Lassie.
I heal again and then head to Route 102 briefly to run around in the grass, finding none other than...a Ralts. OMG.
Handling her as gingerly as possible, I manage to catch her and name her Fubuki, after the psychic hero Miss Blizzard from One Punch Man.
Healing once more, I head into Route 102 and grind off of the Pokemon and some of the trainers by switching out Fubuki for Kaze until Fubuki grows to Level 6 and learns Confusion, with Kaze growing to Level 9. After that, Kaze and Fubuki defeat the last few trainers, Kaze grows to Level 10, and I snatch some berries nearby before heading into Petalburg City.
After healing, I meet Norman in his gym and he ropes me into getting a Ralts for Wally. Once that's done, I stock up on as many supplies as I can with my winnings before heading into Route 104. With Fubuki's help, I manage to catch a Zigzagoon, whom I name Rocket. After healing one final time, I decide to take a break for today.
