gah! caught Whisper the {whismur} in Rusturf Tunnel. Healed up, went back to route 116 to level her to match my next lowest poke and.... she died to a crit from a Taillow using Peck :'( R.I.P. Whisper. I guess whismurs were just not meant to be in my party.

I'm going to get my fishing rod and then boat back to go fishing in Petalburg. because going under-level against a fighting gym with 4 pokes, 2 of which are normal type, is just not going to work. either way tho, I'm kinda expecting Game Over later today at the hands of Brawly's gym >.<

@KingErick: I don't know if you can say you've beaten the Nuzlocke Challenge, considering it was your third try on the E4. Isn't the point of the challenge that luck can make or break it for you? (like taillow crit killing my poor poor Whisper :'( )


edit - wow, i suck at this :P I caught a {magikarp} in petalburg (named Karen), went to train it up to match my team, and poor Jeanette went from in the green to dead against a whismur. why don't my guys ever get to crit like that? methinks this shall be a short challenge for me >.<

edit2 - woot! beat brawly! (2nd gym) I honestly thought i was going to die against him, but Kipps kicked butt (with potion help, but he went in there under level and had no help from his teammates, so he's still win :D )
So here's what I've got and where they were from:

Current team:
Kipp, lvl 17 {marshtomp} starter
Jenny, lvl 12 {zigzagoon} route 102
Monty, lvl 12 {beautifly} route 104
Karen, lvl 10 {magikarp} petalburg city

R.I.P.:
Murmur, lvl 10 {whismur} route 116
Whisper, lvl 7 {whismur} rusturf tunnel
Jeanette, lvl 11 {zigzagoon} petalburg woods

Missed catches:
{zigzagoon} route 101
{zigzagoon} route 103
{magikarp} dewford town

Now on my way to dewford cave to deliver the letter to steven, then i'm going to stop off at rustboro to get my item from mr. stone before heading to slateport. ^_^

granite cave: caught Fangs the {zubat}
did a bunch of story stuff, got my exp share, got to slateport..
route 110: failed to catch my {zigzagoon} (this game REALLY wanted me to have a team of them for some reason)
then I lost Jenny and Monty to a trainer on route 110. I find it strange that all my deaths were to critical hits... anyways, got to Brendan with Kipp {marshtomp} Fangs {zubat} and Karen {magikarp}. Karen only knew splash, so no help there. and his grovyle was a level higher than Kipp, 4 lvls higher than Fang. Needless to say, GAME OVER

It was fun. I think I'm gonna try again, same rules as before except maybe i'll let myself train to the level of the gym i'm about to attack :P Starting with {treecko} this time. I'll update when i get to the first gym successfully =)

Erick,could you please at least make sure spelling of the Pokemon are correct? >.>
No offence but misspelling names of Poke's seem as if you have no "respect" in them at all. And kindly edit the mistakes in not so much on grammer.

For eg : the first post , you said "sting came in and took out blastoise" which you obviously meant to say lapras.. it makes it easier for people to understand and its Dewgong,Cloyster and not Dewong and stuff. Just making sure no1 gets confused..


i meant to say that blastiose left the field.

English is my 4th language so there is occasionally a tensing mistake

and thanks for the congratulations on beating the challenge :D

Whoo! Oh man, has it been some time since I had an update. People beating the challenge, losing the challenge and me still at the exact same spot since my last update. Not that I haven't been playing mind you, as I have albeit very mildly (I got caught up into the card game) but the fact my LV72 {raticate} was OHKO'd by a LV39 {primeape} didn't help. So, I've been training a LV8 {clefairy} in the meantime before I continued my game. So, expect an update guys, sometime tomorrow night EST from me.

I finally got all my pokemon to lvl 20. I decided it was time to battle misty. Batmanflys {zubat} took care of 90% of the pokemon in the gym, But mistys {starmie} slaughtered batmanflys {zubat}, {jigglypuff}, bugthingys {butterfree}, and hurricane {pidgeotto} ALL with water pulse. If mist hadnt used a freakin super potion after I was able to poison starmie and get it to the red, they would still be here.

arrmagedon {charmeleon} is the only survivor after the encounter with misty. He switched in and poison took care of starmie. Now I have a party of one and I cant catch any more pokemon from previous routes. I will now Grind {charmeleon} until Im able to beat my rival (lvl 50 anyone?). I really wish I had a pickachu..... CURSE YOU MISTY!!!!!!!!

Dead
{zubat} batmanflys lvl 20 KO'D by mistys starmie
{jigglypuff} lvl 20 KO'D by misty's starmie
{butterfree} bugthingys lvl 20 KO'D by misty's starmie
{pidgeotto} hurricane lvl 20 KO'D by misty's starmie

Current team

{charmeleon} arrmagedon lvl 21 {scratch, growl, metal claw, ember}

Update:

My last update was on the October 27th and this one falls on the November 16th. So, I've been really slacking lately. I got a bit discouraged and fell into the lure of the card game, but alas, I returned to it and grinded a serious replacement. I went to the Islands after I got my seventh badge, trained there and did what little I could. There, however, I lost Dale in a team battle against a LV39 {primeape} and LV39 {machoke}. It was a critical hit Cross Chop on Dale, a OHKO. I stared at the screen and blinked a few times, disbelieving that my LV72 Dale died so...so...sadly. It wasn't an epic death like so many others, it was...a rather simple and...silly death. I was saddened, discouraged and that was when I didn't touch the game as much as I did before. But, I came back, finished my training, flew to Viridian and let Bubbles tear through the Gym. As I imagine, it would've been...exactly like that, a huge gaping tear in the Gym. So, I have my eighth badge and I'll be blowing through my Rival and on my way down Victory Road soon.

You're not really keeping to the 'one pokemon per route rule'
and I don't think Zapdos was the first pokemon you encountered in the Powerplant.
If you're skipping those rules, what is the challenge?

A city isnt a route. The rules state one pokemon PER route, not per city.

2nd, he could've used repel in which case zapodos would be the first pokemon he saw.

well, if we're looking at all the optional rule, #1 was "On each route/cave/town/tower/dungeon you may only catch one Pokemon and this Pokemon may MAY ONLY BE THE FIRST POKEMON you see!"
i haven't been following from the beginning of Kaori's Challenge tho, so not sure if that applies or not.

In other news, I started my challenge over.
Playing Sapphire, Trainer: Amberyl
The rules I'm following:
The mandatory 3, of course, and I'm modifying the optional rules a bit.:
1. On each route/cave/town/tower/dungeon you may only catch one Pokemon and this Pokemon may MAY ONLY BE THE FIRST POKEMON you see!
2. If you don't have any Pokeballs to catch the first Pokemon you see, tough **** you arn't allowed to catch it. (I am allowing myself to buy 10 Pokeballs at the start, simply because I wanted a couple Premier Balls, in case I run across a shiny. I just prefer the look of it. considering Zigzagoon will pickup Ultra Balls, I dont think it'll impact my challenge)
3. If a Pokemon of yours faints in or out of battle YOU MUST RELEASE IT INSTANTLY AND NEVER USE IT AGAIN. Or you can put it in a box labeled 'Dead' as a memento or for post game/once you finish the challenge.
4. If your party is full and you catch a Pokemon, you may send it to your box as a backup, incase one of your Pokemon faints, it can be replaced (and insanely grinded).
5. For the hard outs, no using any items in or out of battle (and yes, that includes antidotes, this also includes hold items. You can still use Pokeballs but you must find them, not buy them). For the easy going people, you may use any items, but only those you find, you cannot buy any items from anywhere. You can choose whether you can use revives or not. (I'm using items I find in game, allowing my pokes to hold items, but not allowing the use of revives)
6. You MUST nickname all of your Pokemon to grow a bond with them. This will also break your heart when they die (hehehe).
7. If you wipe out (all party Pokemon faint) then you must release/put them in box.
8. If all of your Pokemon die, then you must start again, you lose!
9. If doing this on HG/SS, and a Pokemon is left on 1 health because it 'survived the poisoning' it is dead. Doesn't apply
10. Have fun! Post your adventure in this thread, and even make comics to go with it if you wish!
11. You must have your battle change option set to set, not shift. This means you can't change out your Pokemon before your opponent does.

And since the whole point of restarting this game was to get me some fancy legendaries to play with, I'll be transferring some masterballs to catch and SR for good natures / IVs, but will not be using them in my challenge. They go straight to me "R.I.P." box.

I'm being more cautious at catching things this time 'round, I didnt miss out on any pokemon yet ^_^
I reached the first gym with a team of 6 lvl 10 pokemon. I defeated the first gym, one casualty. Here is what I caught and what lvl they're at now:

{treecko} Alberto, met lvl 5, starter, Jolly, R.I.P.: Died at lvl 13 to Roxanne's Nosepass after creaming EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE GYM *sniff* he was one hit from victory.
{wurmple} Betty, met lvl 3, Route 101, Bashful, evolved into {cascoon}, then {dustox}, now lvl 10
{zigzagoon} Cynthia, met lvl 3, Route 103, Lax, now lvl 10
{surskit} David, met lvl 3, Route 102, Naive, now lvl 11 (Avenged Alberto's death)
{zigzagoon} Evan, met lvl 5, Route 104, Bashful, now lvl 10
{zigzagoon} Felix, met lvl 5, Petalburg Woods, Naive, now lvl 10

On to clear some story stuff, pick up my Route 116 & rusturf tunnel pokemon and then gym #2.

For towns, to me that is more of "obtaining" a pokemon more than "catching it"...

Anyways, I LOST. My rival beat me with his {squirtle} that ws 10 lvls below arrmagedon... My record is 1 Win and 1 lose.....

Again i'll be playing this in Fired red and will be staring with {charmander}. This time ill get my pokemon up to lvl 25 BEFORE challenging misty. All rules be applied (again), with the following tweaks:

-I can not catch evolutions, if the first pokemon of a route I see is an evolution, I am still able to catch a pokemon on that route.

-I can use any item I find lying around, (that includes hold items).

- I can by one tm per week. (applies to came corner as well)

-I am able to catch one pokemon in the safari zone, but it doesnt have to be the first one I see, HOWEVER if I do not catch a pokemon on my first go, I can not cathc a pokemon there AT ALL.

- I can get as many pokemon as I wasnt from the game corner as long as I havent been to the area where I can "catch them" (example, I cant get a clefairy if Ive gone through Mt. Moon) (I can only do this ONCE, after that tough luck for me)

- If I run across a shiny on a route ive previously cought a pokemon, I am allowed to cathc it for my platinum game.
- The only items I am allowed to to buy is "Balls" (max ten).
Caught:
reaper rat {rattata} lvl 3 route 1
pointytopy {weedle} lvl 4 viridian forest
Current team

deathcon 1 {charmander} lvl 10 with blaze
reaper rat {rattata} lvl 10 with guts
pointytopy {weedle} lvl 4

Currently in viridian forest where ill train till I get my guys to lvl 20 before taking on brock.

My name- 3rdTRY

Rivals name- FEED ME

[color=olive]Oh boy, here we go. Ahem.

If you're skipping those rules, what is the challenge?

[color=olive]Thank you Dangertrout. The game corner though, while a loophole, was a bit of a risk. I never spent a single

I have followed Kaori on his Nuzlocke challenge, and in my opinion he did NOT break any rules. Simply, there are no rules against capturing the Legendary Pokemon. People are using the argument that you should assume it means that the legendary Pokemon are wild encounters. There is nothing wild about them, they are simply right there as an option to capture or not to capture. The fact that he was even able to obtain these Pokemon using only the pokeballs that he found on the ground is outstanding.

As for the Game Corner, the definition of a loop hole is this exactly: A loophole is a weakness or exception that allows a system, such as a law or security, to be circumvented or otherwise avoided. Think about it, the rule states you can only capture the first pokemon on any route... it says absolutely nothing about obtaining pokemon from any other means. Obtaining a pokemon like Eevee or Togepi could be considered the exact same as this, and I have not heard anything saying that you cannot use the Eevee you receive from people...

Kaori also played with the rules others did not, like the battle switch and what not. Also he took the time to grind all of his pokemon to level 80 legit. I think people need to admire his creativity when it came to using the rules to an advantage. Don't be jealous just because you didn't think of it, and if you would say that you wouldn't do it yourself that is acceptable. Just don't sit there and question the legitimacy of his challenge based on your opinion. Interpretations of rules are different to everyone, but in reality he broke none of them. Congrats on completing the challenge!!!

I really appreciate the statement, Zero Cool. I take a lot of pride in taking and completing the challenge. It was fun, time consuming and I will be passing the challenge on to my younger brother, whom I hope will log his adventure here as well.

Just defeated the second gym with Betty. Went in with 6 pokes at lvl 17. Here's where my guys stand:

Team:
{dustox} Betty, Bashful, lvl 19
{zigzagoon} Cynthia, Lax, lvl 17
{surskit} David, Naive, lvl 17
{zigzagoon} Evan, Bashful, lvl 17
{zigzagoon} Felix, Naive, lvl 17
{whismur} Gertrude, met at lvl 6, route 116, Hardy, now lvl 17

Alive in PC:
{whismur} Herbert, met at lvl 5, Rusturf Tunnel, Relaxed

R.I.P.:
{treecko} Alberto, Jolly, died to Roxanne's Nosepass at lvl 13

On to clear more story junk, defeat Brendan, then the 3rd gym. That 3rd gym is going to be tricky with my current team.... i never thought i'd see the day where i'd wish i had a geodude :D

Ok, I admit buying pokemon is a loophole you could use
