Spoiler Alert!Hello internet!
I just (yesterday) started a Nuzlocke on Pokemon Heartgold and I was wondering if it would be accepted because I followed all the rules and haven't beta Falkner just yet, I've just been grinding up my team...
I'm gonna do an update just because I need to do one per gym so:
I booted up my game, then created a character and named her Gold. I got all my options and stuff, and I set the text speed to fast and the frame to purple. I then went over to Elm's and got a Cyndaquil (m), which I named Tambora, after the volcano in Indonesia. I went to Mr. Pokemon's and back, and all that good stuff, when Elm called and Elm called and apparently Silver stole some Pokemon. I ran into him in Cherrygrove city and KOed his Totodile with ease. After thta, I named him, told my mom to save my money, and then Ethan showed me how catch a Rattata.
With that, I ste out on my journey. Encounter on Route 29: Hoohoot. I caught it and name it Cosmic (m). (Ya know, for the cosmic owl?) I then went up to Route 40 and caught a Geodude (f). I named it Zuma for Zuma rock in Nigeria. (It was the only "monolithe" thta sounded the slightest bit female.) I continued to Route 30, where I encountered a Rattata, Remmy, whom I caught. On Route 31, another Rattata apperaed, and I KOed it. I got my encounter fr Dark Cave, a Zubat (f), whom I named Bella. I got to violet city, (after receiving a VS. Recorder from Ethan) and I trained at the Sprout tower, and after beating that sidequest, beta the the two gym trainers in the gym, before going to grind my team up to lvl. 14. (I haven't finished yet.)
Calm Cyndaquil, Tambora lvl. 11 (m)
Brave Hootoot, Cosmic lvl. 11 (m)
Modest Zubat, Bella lvl. 7 (f)
Serious Geodude, Zuma, lvl. 9 (f)
Sassy Rattata, Remmy, lvl. 14 (m) (And may I mention hes the top %?)
Spoiler Alert!Quick update on my (Unofficial) Heartgold Nuzlocke.
After I didn't save after training up Bella (my Zubat) I re-did that, and I began to train Zuma, (my Geodude) but she sustained serious damage from a Belsprout, so I moved my training to Dark Cave.
After reaching level 12, partially out of laziness and partially out of realization, I decided that Zuma would probably level up after she sweeped the gym.
I started the battle with Falkner, and after KOing his Pidgey, he sent out his Pidgeotto, and it used gust. Zuma almost fainted because of Zuma's lack of Sp.Def.. I sent in Remmy. I then switched out to Cosmic. I used Hypnosis, and it hit. Then I used UPROAR. I had forgot that it woke up the opponent. Then...
After that, Bella finished the Pidgeotto off and I recieved TM51 and the Zephyr Badge.
Spoiler Alert!Another update on my Unofficial Heartgold Nuzlocke!
After the murder at the Violet City Gym, I left the gym and got a call from prof. Elm. He told me to pick up the Monek egg from the Violet City Pokemart. I went there and got the egg (along with a super potion from my Mom). After that, I went back down to Route 31, encountered a Zubat/Rattata (I can't remember) and killed it. I scolded myself before remembering that that was the same route that I had already grinded on. I continued down the path and went the dock way, since I had no interest in Bullet Seed and wanted to fight the Fishermen.
Afterwards, I went through Union Cave and accidentally KOed the Zubat I encountered. The same thing happened with the route that you go on before you get to Azalea Town. I went and did the Slowpoke Well, (WHERE I ACCIDENTALLY KOED MY FIRST ENCOUNTER AGAIN) and defeated the Rocket Grunts with ease.
I then went to the PokeCenter and healed up and went to grind/try to hatch the Monek egg. After grinding Remmy to level 20 and Tambora to level 18, the Monek egg hatched! I nicknamed it Monek even though it was male, wasn't quiet nature, and didn't have Serene Grace as its ability. (I've decided to rename it Monek II once I get to Goldenrod). Because Monek hatched, I decided to do something eventful and go fight/Destroy Silver. I opened with Monek, to see what he would lead with and to get Monek XP. I then went in with Bella, who took 20 damage from curse. A quick Astonish and it was down. I switched in Monek to get XP, but it sent out Crocanaw, and the only Pokemon that werent weak to water/weak were Bella and Remmy. I didn't want to send in Remmy because he had already been trained and Bella was only lvl. 16, (but remeber, she had taken 20 damage). A hasty attack and Bella fell... And died.
I finished the battle with Remmy and then went but Bella in the RIP box. (RIP boxes are OK, right? Or do I have to release them?) I then went back to grinding. (which I'm doing now)
ANOTHER (I'm sorry! I have a lot of time during the summer!) Heartgold Nuzlocke Update
***Quick note: I interpreted rule 3 as: you can let Monek die whenever you want to! and also, after reading the rules on the Official Nuzlocke thread, apparently Duplicates clause is on! But I decided that I'm gonna have it off anyways because I don't want to go back though all those routes... OK! ON TO NUZLOCKIN'!
OK, I should probably point out that the reason I didn't take an encounter in Ilex was caue I wanted to headbutt a tree and possibly get a Butterfree/Cosmic II. So anyways, I went on and trained Tambora to level 20, and Zuma to 18 (I figured that Zuma would get XP as it swept the gym.)
I went thru the gym with no problem, and got the badge plus U-Turn. Afterwards I went thru Ilex and after I taught Headbutt to Monek, I headbutted the tree and got... A metapod. A metapod. A fcking metapod. A FCKING METAPOD!
After raging for a considerable amount of time, I went back to the game and KOed my encounter for the new route, a Pokemon I was kinda xcited for. (Drowzee). I then arrived in Goldenrod.
