THE (horrible, horrible) POSTGAME AWAITS.

Nuzlocke Stuffs )

Am I done with the Nuzlocke run? Probably. I forgot just how much the post-game of B/W decides to bend you over its knee. There's a good 20 level jump between trainers on Victory Road and trainers in post-game areas, and while the quality of the mons themselves widely varies, it's pretty much an uphill battle wherever you go. Add in the fact that critical hits and general carelessness can happen at any time, and it's just not worth it. I saw the credits, that's good enough for me.

I find it ironic that the run ends with the "death" of the legendary 'mon meant to represent ideals.

Maybe I'll Pokesav up a team of Moody Bidoofs or Smeargles and try a gimmick run. I dunno. The advantage to flash carts over the actual cart is that I can actually start over without losing everything.
So. The grinding is done. Instead of an endpost synopsis, I'll lay it out right here, right now. Stats are presented in the order they're given, which means HP/Atk/Def/SAtk/SDef/Spd.

on the road again, victory road is a giant pain in the ass~
Nuzlocke fales )
My sleep schedule is securely fucked, and I'm not sure if I should blame the pokey mans.

Let's see how far this rabbithole goes before visiting RELIC CASTLE, THE CASTLE OF THE RELICS THAT ARE IN A RELIC CASTLE.

I'm a heartbreaker. My name... Charles. Sometimes I post twice in one day.

Nuzlocke Stuff )
okay. Let's finish this forest up. Maybe get some plot done.

So, I figure, as an inauguration for my new DW journal... I'd start a new Nuzlocke run.

Game is Pokemon White.

This is to be the story. No special rules this time, as Black/White has enough snags in the fabric.

Starter pokemon is, for maximum FUUUUUUUUUUUUUH, Tepig. I kind of expect him to die by the fourth gym.

WERE DOIN THIS BRO
(3:26:10 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: BUT YES BASICALLY KANTO HAS FALLEN APART
(3:26:51 AM) [livejournal.com profile] xyzzysqrl: This place needs the strong dictatorial hand-wing of Lou Gia. I must conquer this land. It is my ambition.
(3:28:59 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: The grinding is a bit obnoxious! But really, the game loses all its narrative.
(3:29:13 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: However, what is there suggests things that would lend to interesting fanfic.
(3:29:33 AM) [livejournal.com profile] xyzzysqrl: Well, that's okay then.
(3:30:26 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: I like the mentality that, since Red was crowned champion at the end of the first gen and Team Rocket was (supposedly) disbanded, a few things happened.
(3:30:54 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: One, the eighth gym needed a leader. Rival Character/Gary/Blue/whatev stepped in. This much is canon.
(3:31:25 AM) [livejournal.com profile] xyzzysqrl: There's also Koga, who somehow irritated his way into the Elite Four and dumped a teenage girl who appears to be related to him in his old gym.
(3:31:33 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: She's his daughter.
(3:32:03 AM) [livejournal.com profile] xyzzysqrl: Allegedly. *cross arms* She may be a robot he built when he realized he was a -terrible person and no one would go near him-.
(3:32:08 AM) [livejournal.com profile] xyzzysqrl: ...I hate Koga.
(3:32:10 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: Point.
(3:32:29 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: Thing is? They never say what happens to a champion who beats the old champion.
(3:32:39 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: And yet, Lance is there as if nothing happened in Gen 1.
(3:34:10 AM) [livejournal.com profile] xyzzysqrl: I'm pretty sure either Main Character G1 Version stepped down to go on a cave-finding mission, or Lance just finally beat him again, so he went off to grind forever.
(3:34:20 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: (Gen4 suggests that the new Champ takes over for the old one, but since Dawn still had things to do - ie the Sinnoh Pokedex - and was too young still, Cynthia held the seat pro-tempore)
(3:34:23 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: And...
(3:34:28 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: I go with that. Kind of.
(3:34:31 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: My speculation, as of such, ties into the very minimal RBY post-game.
(3:35:33 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: Red found Mewtwo. Something about that encounter broke him enough that he just... disappeared. He hadn't been very social to begin with, being that he was the archetype for Ash - someone who invariably found more friendship in pokemon than in other humans - but now he had no reason to be social at /all/.
(3:36:54 AM) [livejournal.com profile] xyzzysqrl: So he's not so much training as he's been thrusting his fists at the air and going "SCIENCE! BAH!" for the last two/three years.
(3:37:24 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: Not really training. Just. Existing. Hermits don't train, after all.
(3:37:58 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: Lance stepped in, naturally, to take back over. However, between Lance busying himself in Johto with Neo Team Rocket and Red gone - and the E4, it should be noted, being total douchebag jerkoffs - Kanto fell into ABSOLUTE shit. The one person who was powerful enough to make a difference AND gave a damn, Blue, did what he could, but ultimately couldn't do the whole job himself.
(3:38:47 AM) [livejournal.com profile] xyzzysqrl: So basically the whole thing is falling apart because the infrastructure fell in thanks to rampant pokemon battling.
(3:40:12 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: Yes.
(3:40:22 AM) [livejournal.com profile] swordianmaster: And Mew is sitting on the sidelines with that memetic Light Yagami face.
WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME.

(Before anyone asks, yes, it is meant as a background story. Meg, Jess, Mii, yes, it IS Wise One, if she was never allowed back. And before anyone says anything, yes, I have been fucked up in the braincage the past day or two.)
Seeing as I've cut through the main game and put a little bit of a dent into the post game, now I suppose is as good a time as any to post my team for my first Gen 5 playthrough.

LET ME SHOW YOU MY POKEMANS )
BOY, I SURE LIKE GOING FROM FIGHTING THE ELITE 4 AT ROUGHLY LEVEL 50 TO EVERYONE IN POST GAME AREAS HAVING LEVEL 64+ POKEMON RIGHT AWAY.

At least it gives the game a little bit of a challenge; people doing Nuzlocke runs of Black/White would probably ragequit as soon as the credits rolled, though.


Also, good to see that GTS is as retarded as possible. OFFERING: LEVEL 2 LILLIPUP. WANTED: LEVEL 100 RESHIRAM pst




DID YOU SERIOUSLY RIP OFF OF POKEMON QUARTZ, GAME FREAK?

MIND = BLOWN.
You know, after working for almost two years across four games (Pearl, Diamond, Platinum, and finally Soul Silver) to get as close as possible to a "legit" pokedex, it feels REALLY LIBERATING to just cheat myself every last pokemon in 4th gen into masterballs.

SPEAKING OF THINGS FEELING LIBERATING.
