In one of the biggest bumps in SONM history, bumping this thread because I recently downloaded Pokemon Yellow and have decided (rather foolishly maybe) to do a Nuzlocke of it. Only done one Nuzlocke before and that was on LeafGreen.

My rules
- Catch only the first Pokemon you find
- If a Pokemon dies it's gone forever
- Pokemon cannot be a higher level than the next gym leader's best Pokemon
- You cannot use items in battle, only outside of it.
- If all Pokemon you own die, you have to restart.

Naturally, the first Pokemon is Pikachu

Pikapik/ Pikachu Lv.6

Nature: None
IVs/EVs: What are you talking about here?

Thundershock
Growl
Tail Whip

First fight against Gary's Eevee, manage to Paralyse him first turn and Eevee is already fully paralysed. Tail Whip fails and things go incredibly smoothly.

I get the feeling this is going to be a lot harder than my LeafGreen Nuzlocke was.

Pineapple's X Nuzlocke — Part 1:
  • Chose Froakie as starter
  • Route 1 Pokémon was Pidgey, had no Pokéballs so couldn't catch :///
  • Entered Santalune Forest, caught a Pansage
  • Next wild Pokémon was a Pansear, followed by a Panpour, which was slightly frustrating as I remember spending ages tracking down all three on my old save file
  • Went through Route 3, caught a Pidgey
  • Did a bit of grinding before entering gym
  • Entered Santalune Gym

    GYM 1- VIOLA
    Viola's Surskit started with Water Sport, effectively granting me a free turn to hit it hard with Pidgey's Gust. It only managed to get off a single Quick Attack before getting KO'd. Next came Vivillon, which hit Pidgey surprisingly hard with Tackle. I switched to Froakie and Bubbled my way to victory as her Vivillon insisted on using Harden twice. I love the AI in these games.
Summary
Location: Santalune Gym
Badges: 1
Team:
Image
Sneaky the Froakie
Level 13, Gentle nature
Chosen as Starter, Level 5
Moves: Lick, Growl, Bubble, Quick Attack

& so a new Nuzlocke adventure begins. Yay adventure!
Pokémon Y is the game of choice, let's go & finish this title. Nuzlocke style!

Before I begin, of course I need establish my rules for this Nuzlocke;
Of course there's the standard faire:

- Of any Pokémon is knocked out, it will counted as "dead" I MUST either boxed 'em & never use them again, or just be released.

- Only one Pokémon to be caught per area. The Pokémon must be the first one I see too. So if I see a Pichu in Route 3, the area is done with. No Psyduck for me. *Hears NintenDoof get a sadface*

- I must nickname every Pokémon I catch to add attachment.

- No trading or breeding of any kind. Only fight with what you caught or what are gifted to you.

Here the added rules to make a little more interesting:

- The species clause is in affect; Meaning if can only catch one Pokémon particular species, this over rides "The Pokémon must be the first I seen" to an extent.
For example, of I catch a Caterpie in the forest, but on route 3, the first Pokémon I see is a Caterpie, I can skip & try to find something else.
This clause also restricts the Pokémon I can catch greatly, so long game can be quite a challenge in it's self...

- My starter Pokémon & I are life-linked; Simply meaning; I always have my starter in my party & if it dies, it's game over.

- Pokémon I receive from someone like the Professor do not count as "caught" they count them as gifted, so I can catch another in that area. (this includes Eggs, even though I won't be breeding anything myself)

- If a choice comes up, it will be randomly selected through dice or a coin. This includes, but not exclusive to; my starting gender & Starter Pokémon. Just to mix it up a bit.

- No Legendaries in the party. This is OP & bloody stupid. If I catch a legendary like Zygarde, it will be boxed & never be used.

- Lastly, shiny Pokémon; As they're so rare, if I see one I have the option if using it instead of the Pokémon I catch in that area already.
That said, if I don't choose to insert into my party, I will catch it. For the record; I won't try in anyway to force a shiny encounter such as chaining.

Anyway, let's begin!

Chapter 1.

"Are you a Boy or a Girl?" A hear you ask?
Well, let's flip a coin & find out.
Tails.
Since boys have "tails" let's go with that. I am a boy in this Adventure. Yay for penis!
Complexion; time for a dice roll.
1 & 2 for the first, 3 & 4 for the second choice & so on...
Let's see here.
One. Okay, the Aryan it is.

Name? Let's make it *rolls two dice (6D)* eight letters.
Shall I roll a dice for the rest of this? I don't see why not? XD
Random number generator, with 26 letters, let's see the now:
19, so "S".
8 so"H"
9 is "I"
21 is "U"
2 is "B"
1 is "A"
16 is "P"
& 7 is "G"

So "Shiubapg" is my name. My parents gave this name. I am proud of it. *Salutes*

Anyway, I quickly go see the other kids & quickly adopt the nickname "Li'l S" 'cause it reminds me of "Little S**t", & I find that hilarious.
I know I would I'd normally roll the dice for that, but screw it. To much of a chance to pass up.

Now to roll the dice for the Starters:
1 & 2 for Chespin, 3 & 4 for Fennekin & of course, 5 & 6 for Froakie.
*rolls*
4... That's Fennekin. M'okay. Come to me you Fire foxy, witchy thing...
Image
"Hiya. =3"
D'aww, ain't he adorable? =3
Now to name the adomination... Err... Screw it, let's roll the dice for everyone:
*Rolls 2 dice* 6 letters.
23 is W
15 is O
5 is E
25 is Y
19 is S
14 is N

Woeysn the Fennekin. Yay. =D
...& he has a relaxed nature, too. Neat.


Now, before we go on to Route 2, all of you should know by now the first Pokémon you seen Pokémon X & Y is a scripted event; It'll always be a Pidgey with Keen Eye.
I want this run through this totally random, so I'm just gonna run from the Nuzlocke-hating Pidgey & look once more afterwards.
The Pokémon I find is: Aww. It's a female Scatterbug, & I catch her easily.
Image
"What'chu looking at, eh?"

Like with naming system I used for Woeysn, time to roll some dice:
Let's see, 9 letter & her name is: Dyyrqvskt

Dyyrqvskt the Scatterbug
Sounds almost Russian...nice.

Youngster Austin bites the dust & now to the enter the forest.

I wander round the forest a bit, the first thing I encounter is a male Caterpie.
Looks like I'm insect hunting for now. XD
I caught it, yay!
Now to name it. Roll for 2 letters, & so his name is; Xc
that sounds so anguished. I know how he feels...
Image
"I am Xc. I am sorrow."
Wow. Xc is modest. That's a really good nature for a Butterfree.

After taking all of the trainers in the forest, I'm about leave, but then:
Image
"It still hurts..."
Xc evolves into a Metapod. Yay! He seems to be much more expressive too. =3

Next up, Route 3. Ouvert way!
First thing I found; A female Azurill. =D

Time to name it. Let's see...*rolls dice* Eight letters.
Her name is; Cactfknx
Image
"Hug me..."
Aww...she's so cute.=3

Next up a little girl with a Pichu. Gimme yo lunch money!
...Well that was easy. After taking down the rest of the trainers, Santalune City Poké-centre I go & deposit Dyyrqvskt the Scatterbug.
I don't need two Bug types.
Now then before even trying the Gym, let's go to Route 22 & catch something. I'm hoping for a Farfetch'd.

IT'S...Bidoof. Bloody Bidoof. -_-
Oh well, I guess I have to catch it. Here goes nothing.

Yay. I caught him. [/much sarcasm.]
Oh well, the capture put Xc up to level 10. Time to evolve.
But first let's name this dopey fool:
Let's Rolled a 4 for the letters, so his name is: Gyzr
Sounds like an RPG boss. Gyzr the Bidoof. Welcome to the team. FOR NOW.
Image
"So I have succumb to capture. This ball of confinement shall bring in a new era of discovery. This anticipation withers the morose of my soul."

Now then, XC is evolving. & I get beautiful Butterfree as a friend. =D
Image
"The suffering. It never ends."


& I think that'll do it for Chapter one.
Next time we shall take Viola, the first Gym leader. Until then, Bye-bye. =D
