Didn't do too much, I've already seen the major tourist stuff in Boston, and the weather wasn't exactly great either for my brief stay. Welcome back 12 hours ago, Interdimensional Observer said: ...And I think I wrote out enough.😅 I wish I could've lingered inside the museum longer -that's bound to happen with the giant ones. And thanks for sharing your thoughts, and images of what you saw in your museum trip 6 hours ago, GuardianSing said: They call them beauties because they always have the best opinions. Awww...that is both true, and adorable 4 hours ago, Benice said: I FINALLY FRICKIN' FINISHED A NUZLOCKE CONGRATS!!! 4 hours ago, Benice said: Blue Bossa ultimately edged out a Flygon for a place on the Elite Four team because I wanted the better defensive typing against the champion. Interesting choice, personally I probably would have gone the other way 4 hours ago, Benice said: . She also single-handedly won the Champion fight by setting up dragon dance against Wallace's Whiscash, then, after getting a lucky OHKO on his terrifying Milotic, sealed the deal with a perish song on the champ's last pokemon before switching out. Blue Bossa, though a late bloomer, certainly was a boss! But it sounds like it worked out for you. It is funny to see you use Winona's classic Dragon Dance strats on the champion, and finishing thing with perish song is just plain funny. 4 hours ago, Benice said: Peebs the Crobat, in spite of the headache caused by grinding friendship for its evolution, was a key part of the team for several terrifying fights from Winona onwards. A classic Nuzlocke pick thanks to that terrifying speed 4 hours ago, Benice said: Because the Zubat line is PBG's favorite pokemon, I named it after my childhood's favorite Youtuber! And that is an adorable reasoning for the little guy's name. 4 hours ago, Benice said: The oldest member of the Elite Four squad, I caught Petanque shortly before the first gym, and though she remained in the box for quite some time, she came up huge in the lategame and became a key offensive member of my team. Interesting choice, and I am especially surprised you didn't have baton pass to have him pass the speed and attack buffs off to other pokes. Also I respect that it doesn't look like you just cheesed the game with Shedinja. 4 hours ago, Benice said: After the Phoebe fight went awry, I decided to sack Petanque for the sake of wearing down the last Dusclops. The sign of an experienced Nuzlocker, knowing when you need the sack to save the run... 4 hours ago, Benice said: Petanque had other plans, though, as she dodged the rock move and finished off the rest of the team. What a champ, avoiding his fated death, and clearing the way. 4 hours ago, Benice said: My plan was for him to Sunny Day and Flamethrower through Glacia, but that didn't really end up happening. He landed a few key hits in Phoebe's fight and lived through Walrein's Surf to set up Sunny Day, but I ultimately sacked him there both to get the Overheat off and to get a safe switch into the only member of the team who could possibly scratch Walrein. He also missed the Overheat, but god love him he's trying. A sad way to go, but I bet that weather control was vital. 4 hours ago, Benice said: The entire run actually did end up coming down to him landing a Thunder against Wallace's Wailord, since I couldn't risk him dying to Blizzard. He landed that, easily eliminated Gyarados, and passed off the baton to Blue Bossa, who took care of the rest. Oh wow, having to rely on a Thunder hit is always spicy (without Rain Dance strats that is). 4 hours ago, Benice said: All praise Quaggles the Whiscash, what a champ. Carried me through the entire game after Tate and Liza, and even managed to be useful there by baiting some Solar Beams. I initially brought her along just because she's a silly little guy with a goofy smile, but as it turns out... Well, Whiscash good! I hadn't really realized just how different Competitive and actual Pokemon are until she came along. Ah, Swampert's lesser cousin, who is a real goofball. 4 hours ago, Benice said: Quaggles' typing is incredible for the Elite Four because there are so few grass types, meaning that Quaggles could always switch in safely against anything. It is such a good typing especially in Hoenn, and half the reason Mudkip is the best starter in Hoenn, especially when basically the only required fights with grass moves in the whole game is the rival fights... 4 hours ago, Benice said: Not seen here in Quaggles' moveset Blizzard, which she dropped after Drake, because apparently this goofy fish can learn Fissure, which was basically my backup plan if Trike missed the Thunder. Sometimes you need the Hail Mary of a OHKO move like that... 4 hours ago, Benice said: Casualties were surprisingly minimal! Taco Brell the Breloom was an absolute champ through the earlygame, but regretfully died while placing down a leech seed on Flannery's Torkoal because I couldn't find any other way to kill it Such a sad way to go for such a great pokemon to go out 4 hours ago, Benice said: Spleen the Swellow subsequently died because Torkoal paralyzed four different pokemon with four consecutive Body Slams. Oof, a sad casualty of brutal hax, and an excellent Pokemon if they live long enough to take advantage of pre-burn Guts boosted Facade with STAB 4 hours ago, Benice said: The remaining three casualties were Laurence the Bellossom, who slayed my dad's Slaking, How Lewd the Tentacruel who was a staple of the team right to his very end, and Thelonious the Castform, who was very useful but met a regretfully early grave. All three perished in the Tate and Liza fight. Double battle fights are so different that they are hard to plan for. Although if you can set it up, half of Tate and Liza's team are incapable of hitting Dark types... 4 hours ago, Benice said: The most avoidable death was probably Laurence's, since I forgot to give him any damaging moves before tossing him in to the Tate and Liza fight. He was supposed to kill the Xatu, but it's hard to do that with Stun Powder. Oop...eh planning deaths like that can happen some times. 4 hours ago, Benice said: Finally, honorable mentions! Dog. the Mightyena was our first encounter, and was on the team pretty much the whole game! Intimidate is quite nice, so even though Crunch's damage was lacking, he still was pretty nifty, particularly for neutralizing Norman's Slaking. Intimidate really is a top tier ability in Pokemon. 4 hours ago, Benice said: I always try to avoid using Gyarados because of how crazy powerful it is, but because I'm sick of losing to Winona, I made an exception and allowed this one onto the team. With literally a perfect nature and insane stats, this Gyarados was named after Diablo the Cheater. After safely defeating Winona's Altaria, Diablo returned to his interdimensional sex simulator (powered by a fucking necromancer), and used that game on a daily basis for the rest of the run as he stayed in the box. I respect the level of restraint used in soft banning Gyarados. 4 hours ago, Benice said: not to mention most of the Elite Four, where it matches well against the already nonthreatening dark types and does poorly against the ghost, ice, dragon, and water types behind it. Maybe it'd be good for the ice fight were it not for the fact that this game has no ice types, so they just made it a water-type fight with hail and two glalie in-between the water types. Yeah, Blaziken does so much better against the Ruby/Saphire endgame, where the champion is steel type instead of water... 4 hours ago, Benice said: Cradily, who I chose over the immensely superior Armaldo because I decided I wanted to be out-of-the-box and use Cradily's great defense to back its pretty decent offense. Plus, I think it's really cool, and kinda cute in its own way too. Unfortunately, I just couldn't figure out how to make it work. It barely resists anything at all and equally has a terrible offensive moveset that can't be readily offset by TMs because there just really doesn't seem to be any good bug or rock-type TMs available. Shame you couldn't get Cradily to work, as it is a solid little defensive pokemon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
