Nuzlocke update # 3 :: After my last Nuzlocke post I took a break for a little bit. My Team felt underpowered and out gunned. After leaving Cyllage city I headed north to rt 10.
I got a Golett .. I was really really really hoping for a Hawlucha but that didn't happen. Instead I just furthered my 2x grass weakness. On the flip side he is immune to fighting types.
Geosenge town held nothing really important for me as this was my second playthrough the game. The town upon further inspection just has an ominous air about it...
Rt.11 - My failing .. I left Geosenge town and walked into some bushes I got a Stunky. Not bad decent typing for the fairy heavy game ahead. I saved and went forward, no problems. Then I met Sky Trainer Yvette .. I had two guys at 38 and went into it thinking no problem I can deal with those guys. NOPE. Lead off with my Pidgeot; it is almost immediately reduced to less than half health by Emolga. Emolga barley receives a scratch. I switch in Mothim an manage to poison him and start to grind him out .. Mothim dies to a Crit. Pidgeot quick attacks to kill emolga.. bring out staravia . Staravia attacks and gets back to back crits and my two guys go down. Here is where I shut off the DS and walked away. After about an hr or so turned it back on and pretended like nothing happened.
This goes against everything that Nuzlocke stands for, but fuck everything about that. I need those two guys .. they represent hours and hours of game play and that was a cheap trick. To this day I am not even sure what qualifies a guy for a sky battle but henceforth I will not do a sky battle. It's not fun.. and you're always outgunned and out played. That wasn't luck or lack of skill that's Bull-shit. I kept those two guys on the team and just never did that sky battle.. and pretended like nothing happened.
Going into the reflection cave I caught a Mr.Mime .. Boxed him, he will probably not come out ever. Inside the reflection cave I encountered some horror. I am minding my own business walking through a cave when BOOM .. wobbuffet. Shadow tag means I can't leave the battle, and I can't switch out guys.. WTF. Okay I can do this still.
Opening move by wobbuffet :: Destiny bond .. Charmeleon killed him in two attacks. Destiny bond means my charmeon died with him.
Shortly thereafter while trying to run out of the cave, I ran out of repels... I was horrified and I had every right to be. My first encounter with a wild pokemon .. Wobbuffet.
Two guys to the same thing. Nothing I can do to save them, no running away.. no fleeing.. nothing; just two guys dead in the reflection caves.
Heavy losses. I save my game in Shalour City Get the badge with no losses and get mega evolution ring along with Lucario. Head onward to Rt. 12 and try to forget the pain.. I get Miltank & Lapras
Save and shut my 3DS off .. That was a painful evening. I broke the rules and still ended up with two guys dead. #Nuzlocke
