Cazwegian's Omega Ruby Nuzlocke - Part 2: Roxanne Smashed

I headed over to Route 116 and Rustboro Tunnel to catch some new team members, HelenMSlave2 the Zigzagoon and Dolby 5.1 the Whismur were the new recruits.
Did a bit of Grinding as I wasn't really looking forward to the Roxanne battle seeing as I had a huge type disadvantage. Rik and Wendy both evolved and Rik learned Double Kick which should be immense help against Roxanne.
I lost Dolby 5.1 due to another careless mistake during a trainer battle. RIP our time together was short but sweet ;_;
Well then, onto the first gym battle.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It turns out I was worried for nothing. I led with Wendy but Roxanne's Geodude kept spamming Rock Tomb which would have comfortably 2HKO'd Wendy, so I switched to Basil but it would have had the same result. I then switched to Rik who took Rock Tomb like a boss and then proceeded to OHKO Geodude with a Double Kick and he did the same for Nosepass.

Anyone want a Pokémon who will eventually die named after them?

Dustox is a G.



Cazwegian's Omega Ruby Nuzlocke - Part 3: Brawly battered.

After acquiring my first gym badge, I ended up saving a Wingull from a botched hostage situation.
I also met the president of Devon Corporation who requested that I deliver a letter to his son over in Dewford Town because of an apparent lack of postmen in Hoenn. Fortunately the Wingull whom I had rescued earlier belonged to a sailor, who offered to sail me to Dewford as a thank you.
After landing in Dewford I received an old rod and caught Barbados the Magikarp, I also caught Dora the Explorer Zubat in Granite Cave. After a bit of training I decided to check out the Dewford Town gym.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another short battle took place.
Brawly''s Machop and Makuhita were swiftly dispatched by Wendy and the Knuckle Badge was mine.

I'm sure some of you may have seen, but I started my very first Nuzlocke on Pokemon Red and uploaded it to the SONM YouTube channel. Here's the first two parts;

Part 1
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QgHdQEkTcc

Part 2
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QgHdQEkTcc

Just wanna get anymore opinions on what people think of the run/video itself, is it edited too much/not enough, and do you think the videos are too long/not long enough? Also any suggested usernames and Pokemon they should be called? It's all well and good saying your own name, but a specific Pokemon would be great too, which I'll definitely take on board (;

Parts 3, 4 & 5 are already done and should be up over the next couple of weeks. I'll also give you a sneak peak at the video titles if you fancy some little spoilers...

Part 3 - Brock and a Hard Place

Part 4 - Departures of Mt. Moon

Part 5 - Critical Panic

Hope you enjoy!

Editing is good, any less and it would get pretty boring since I assume most people here have played through R/B a billion times already.

Can't think of anything for nickname suggestions though...

Yeah the editing is fine. I'm enjoying it.


Cazwegian's Omega Ruby Nuzlocke - Part 4: Adios, Dora!

After obtaining the Knuckle Badge I headed into Granite Cave to deliver Steven Stone's letter.
I then ended up sailing to Slateport City to deliver Devon Goods to Captain Stern. On the way I caught LL Cruel J the Tentacool.
Team Magma's Poochyena put an end to Dora's exploring days thanks to a critical hit during a heated battle in the Slateport City Museum. (I'm doing great here, losing a Pokémon every chapter)
On the way to Mauville City, HelenMSlave2 (really should have abbreviated this) evolved and upon reaching Mauville City I recoiled vehemently as I was reminded of the abomination that it has become.

Damn it, I'm gonna have to do this now. None will be as good as LL Cool/Cruel J though.


Cazwegian's Omega Ruby Nuzlocke - Part 5 - So near, yet so far

It was time for my third gym battle, this time against Wattson.

Image
Image Image Image

Wattson led with his Magnemite and I opted for Wendy. Despite Wendy's best attempts her moveset meant that her efforts proved futile against Magnemite's Steel typing. Rik was sent in to deal with Magnemite but Wattson switched also, with Voltorb being sent out. Voltorb used Thunder Wave in the hopes of crippling Rik's speed but Flame Charge soon negated its effects. After another Flame Charge Wattson's Voltorb was down, which left him with only Magnemite and Magneton who were unable to cope with their type disadvantage. A couple of Flame Charges later and the Dynamo Badge was mine.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After leaving Mauville, I headed west over to Route 117 and caught RozealiaBnks who was sent to my PC. I then headed up to Lavaridge Town via Routes 111 and 112. Just when it seemed to going so well, another death!
Barbados who had managed to evolve, thanks to the arduous trek, had been poisoned in a previous battle and seemed to be out of harm's way with the Old Lady's Rest Stop being merely metres away. However, due to a Makuhita using Whirlwind in a trainer battle, Barbados was dragged into the fray and succumbed to his poisoning before I could switch him back out...
I dragged Barbados' lifeless body over to a nearby bush and buried it before continuing my journey.
DizzeeRascal was caught on Route 113 and a Selfdestructing Koffing almost gave me a heart attack but thankfully LL Cruel J survived the hit with just 4 hp.
I managed to reach Fallarbor Town and called it a night.


Flannery is going to be fun.

That was a nice start to yours Sabrofa, I enjoyed it.


Cazwegian's Omega Ruby Nuzlocke - Part 6 - Route One One Death

I gathered my belongings and left Fallarbor Town, with Meteor Falls being the destination to rescue another feeble scientist.
The journey along Route 114 was a relatively pleasant one until DEATH!
New recruit RozealiaBnks was sent to an early grave by an Azumarill during a double battle (this one was entirely my fault, could have been avoided) and then a cruel, most unexpected death occurred.
Further along Route 114 during a battle with Hiker Lucas, the original G, beloved homeboy, LL Cruel J was taken from us. A moment of silence for a brother, please...

Hiker Lucas' Geodude Bulldozed LL Cruel J which resulted in a OHKO.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WF DOOM was caught on Route 114 as I set about rebuilding the team.
Scientist saved, the new destination was Mt Chimney to retrieve a meteorite or something along those lines.
Torking Head and Oingo Boingo (These names are getting progressively worse) were caught in Fiery Path and Jagged Pass respectively.
After clearing Mt Chimney of its Team Magma infestation I finally reached Lavaridge Town and began to prepare for Flannery and possibly the end of this nuzlocke.

Have I managed to do an update without a death yet? If I manage to complete this nuzlocke this might easily have the highest death count of the ones I've completed.
I've not actually completed ORAS yet so I'm going into this somewhat blind.
Also I'm using Pokémon in the order I caught them, just to make it more difficult.

Cazwegian's Omega Ruby Nuzlocke - Part 6 - Route One One Death

Image
Image Image Image

And so the potential nuzlocke ending battle began.

DizzeeRascal OHKO'd Flannery's Slugma with a hastily taught Rock Tomb, Numel was beaten with a DizzeeRascal/Rik combo and Torkoal's high defense was eventually overcome by Rik and that was the end of another relatively easy battle.
......so much for that being a nuzlocke ender.

I met May after leaving Lavaridge Gym who magically escorted me to Petalburg City.

WF DOOM led with Fake Out and then followed with a critical hit Leaf Blade which left Zangoose with a sliver of health and all seemed to be well, but then I noticed the smirk on Zangoose's face before it hit back with a super effective critical hit OHKO Revenge. That little gooseberry fool. (I can remember this Zangoose wiping out my whole team on an Emerald nuzlocke about 5 years ago, it managed to use Swords Dance several times and just massacred my team) I sent out DizzeeRascal to Dizzy Punch it to the fiery depths of hell.
