So here it is... My new run, following where we left off in Soul Silver.

This run will follow the plot and the style that I used in my Soul Silver run. That means that most of the Pokemon I catch will get personalities, backstories and stuff like that. Also, some updates will be only plot.
Now, if you don't like reading much, don't worry since I almost never write long updates.

Also, I said this run will follow Soul Silver's plot, but if you didn't read that run you shouldn't worry. I'll leave a really short summary of what you need to know:
[+] SS Plot Summary
Cyrus, future Team Galactic's admin, was a normal trainer that used to live in Johto. There, he became Pokemon Champion and was chosen by Giovanni to catch Mewtwo. However, the Psychic Pokemon played a bit with Cyrus' mind and was never captured. That episode drove Cyrus a little crazy, and he started planning how to catch Mewtwo.
Cyrus first threatened Oak to make Red and Blue join him, and thanks to the kids he got the Master Ball. However, Mewtwo once again fooled his plans and defeated Cyrus in a battle. Nobody in Kanto/Johto heard about Cyrus again after that.
Meanwhile, in Johto, Prof. Elm gave Edge, Cyrus' son, his first Pokemon, a Chikorita. Edge was told Lance wanted to start a war and was sent to stop him. Edge, a decent trainer, easily defeated Johto's Gym Leaders and eventually defeated Lance, who after being defeated mentioned Cyrus', making Edge ask Elm about his father. Elm didn't know much but sent Edge to Kanto.
In Kanto, Edge defeated the 8 Gym Leaders and eventually defeated Red, who told him that Cyrus was now in Sinnoh.
After knowing about his father's destiny, Edge released all his Pokemon but his Alakazam, Magus, and left to Sinnoh. It is important to note that Magus was almost killed by Red's Lapras and is now unable to fight.
Now, the rules:
1. May only catch first Pokemon seen in a new area.
2. Faint = Death (boxed in R.I.P. box).
3. No duplicates, which means that I can catch at most one member of a evolutionary line during the run. If I see a dupe in a route, I may catch the next Pokemon that appears.
4. The duplicates rule also applies to Pokemon used in SS, so the following Pokemon won't be able for capture: Chikorita, Rattata, Weedle, Mareep, Krabby, Gastly, Onix, Ekans, Vulpix, Abra, Natu, Machop, Murkrow, Diglett, Latias, Kabuto and Delibird.

---------------------------------------------------------------

#1: Meeting Sinnoh.




We're now in Sinnoh... Its quite cold so I changed my clothes. Scarf is cool, but the hat... Not so much.

Anyway, time to unpack!



My bycicle... Never really used it in Johto.

Anyway, in this town lives an old friend of mine. We used to play together in Johto... He'll probably be here soon.



And there he is!

"Fine" I responded "Heard you wanted to be a trainer?"
"Yep" Barry answered "Anyway Edge, its time for you to get a new Pokemon!"
"How will that happen?" I asked.
"We will see Prof. Rowan... Meet me outside town... NOW!" he finished and he ran outside. Always a crazy boy.



"... and Magus" my mother finished, looking at the Alakazam in the stairs.
"Hello miss" Magus responded. He still can't fight, but he can walk and talk fine.
"Barry will help you get a Pokemon!" my mother then told me.
"That's what he said..." I replied "We'll see"
"Good luck son!" my mother said as I left the house.

She's always so happy... Wonder if I should tell her about my father...



She also likes to live in small towns... What the hell is this interviewer doing here anyway?!

Whatever, I don't have time for that... And Magus is staring at the water.



"Woah!" I shouted "Didn't you tell me you where going to be outside?"
"Had to say goodbye to my mother" Barry answered.
"Shall we get going then?" I asked.
"Ye-" Barry started saying but suddenly he stopped and entered his house. I followed him.



"Beldum?" I asked.
"Yeah... My father gave me this one" Barry responded "He said its strong!"
"It will be" Magus said "Now its as useless as this TV"
"What?!" Barry shouted "It talks?!"
"I'm smarter than you kid" Magus mocked.
"Whatever, let's go!" I interrupted and we left.



"Since that Pokemon of yours can't fight... We'll have to run!" Barry said, excited.

"This will be fun to see..." Magus told me while Barry started preparing.



Barry started running, but a voice stopped him.



Barry stopped and fell, to Magus' enjoyment.

And old man appeared then and started talking to us.



"Uh..." Barry said "He has that Alakazam there" he finished, pointing at Magus.
"Alakazam?" Rowan wondered and then got close to me. "You... Edge?" he asked.
"Yes..." I responded "Why do you know me?"
"Elm told me about you" Rowan answered "He said you'd probably need my help"
"We do!" Barry interrupted "Edge needs a Pokemon, since Alakazam can't fight"
"A Pokemon? I can give you one" Rowan replied "But first... I must ask you something"



"Say yes" Magus told me telepatically "That's what he wants to hear"

"Of course I do!" I shouted in response.



"Now where the hell is my suitcase?!" Rowan shouted.
"No suitcase here sir" Barry replied.
"I guess that bitch has it!" Rowan responded, angered.

Just after that a young girl approached us.



"I have your suitcase..." the girl said "Did you just call me a bitch?!"
"Of course not Dawn" the professor answered "I said I liked the beach... Right boys?" he finished, winking at us.
"Yeah... That's what he said" I confirmed... Rowan is giving me something so I must help him.
"Now... Edge, before I give you a Pokemon I'll need to ask you something else" Rowan said.
"I'm ready for any questions" I responded.
"Its... Uh... My wife wanted me to use a Pokemon costume for... uhh... our private activities" Rowan said "I need to know which of the following ones will make the most beautiful costume..."



Not wanting to imagine any weird scene I selected one of the three Pokeballs and gave it to Rowan.

"Thanks boy" Rowan said and gave me a Pokeball.
"What's inside it?" I asked.
"Surprise!" Rowan answered "Anyway bitc... Dawn, let's leave!"



"A little weird though" I commented.
"Yeah" Barry responded "Now we've both got Pokemon... Know what that means?!"

I think I do...



Let's see what's inside this Pokeball then!

----------------------------------------------

Comments: Introductory update, meeting Barry, Rowan and Dawn. You can try to guess the starter. It can be either Gible, Dratini or Bagon.

On the next update: #2: Struggling knights.

I hope this lives up to its predecessor, though, from what I have seen in jacks run, sequel runs are usually awesome.

Is Magus always going to be with you? I look forward to seeing the starter, learning the plot, and just this entire Nuzlocke run. Sorry I missed your SS one, but I'll be following this one. :v:

Awesome.
Your runs are what got me interested in Nuzlocke and I loved SS so I can't wait to see what happens.
And for some reason I think you might do a cameo with rose. Dunno why

@Fireburn, Moti, Anon, Zadikall: Thanks for posting!
@kook: Yeah... I'll be leaving soon for a few weeks so I wanted to start this soon.
@Ruxin: It doesn't take long... Getting the darkened sprites to put in night time screenshots was a bit annoying though.
@cheetos: Let's hope this one is good.
@crazymankey: Magus will be in most of the screenshots. Also, don't worry about SS, just read the small summary and you'll be fine.
@brodioh: Cameos? We'll see.
@brutal satyr: Its not that annoying really.
@LLB: You never know...

#2: Struggling Knights




A worm? Damn it Rowan.
"Its a dragon dumbass" Magus telepatically corrected me. So a dragon? Cool.

"Hello sir!" the Dratini said to the Beldum "I'm one of the knights of Sir Albert's army!"
"Shut up boy" the Beldum replied "The name's Metallica... Prepare to get your ass kicked"



"You should respect knights" Dratini responded as he paralysed Metallica.
"Silly dragon, how can you be a knight if you have no arms?" Metallica mocked.
"Uh... I'll have them one day" Dratini answered, a little embarassed, before charging another attack.



"I have this though!" he finished, knocking out Metallica.
"We'll meet again..." Metallica said as he fainted.



"Damn it!" Barry continued "I should have trained more"
"Its okay Barry" I told him "We'll have a rematch another day"
"Whatever" Barry responded "Its quite late now..."

We both went to our houses to sleep after the battle.

* The next day *



"Uh... Mother, I guess I'm leaving on a journey again" I responded.
"That means you got a Pokemon..." she answered, a bit sad.
"Yes... But I'll visit you sometime" I replied, trying to calm her down.
"Its okay... Hope Magus doesn't miss the TV" she finished, pointing at Magus.

We left the house after that, I wanted to talk to Rowan so I headed out of the city.



"Waiting?" I asked, confused.
"I told you that we were going to get a legendary Pokemon in the lake today!" he answered "Did I?"
"No..." I responded.
"Oh, whatever, it doesn't matter" he replied "Let's go!"

We headed to the lake... Where I met a familiar figure...



"So many powers to hold..." Cyrus continued "I'll have you all... I'll be the most powerful man in the world!"

Is that... Cyrus? He looks... crazy.
"So that is your father" Magus telepatically said to me.
Indeed it is Magus... It doesn't look good.

Suddenly, Cyrus turned around and started walking in our direction.



He didn't even look at me... Does he remember he has a son?

"Are you okay?" Barry asked me after Cyrus disappeared "You seem distracted"
"Yes... That man scared me a little" I answered.
"Anyway, we'll now catch that legendary!" Barry shouted, excited.
"So, you have any Pokeballs?" I asked.
"Oh... DAMN IT!" Barry shouted. Stupid boy had nothing to capture the legend "Let's go and visit Rowan, he probably has some"
"Probably..." I responded, as Barry started running towards Rowan's lab. Boy, he is so hasty.

We reached the lab a while later, but Barry was nowhere to be seen.



"So you talked with Elm?" I asked.
"Yes... He told you don't have a trainer belt" Rowan answered "You know what that means right?"
"Yes... My Pokemon can die in battle" I responded.
"Also, according to the Sinnoh law, you are only allowed to catch the first Pokemon you see in every route boy" he continued "And... You can't have 2 Pokemon of the same family, counting the ones you got in Johto and Kanto"
"What?!" I shouted "Damn Pokemon protectors, always screwing with me"
"Anyway Edge, now you can completely claim that Dratini I gave you" he said, putting a seal on Dratini's Pokeball. I left the lab after that.



"Hello sir!" Lavitz greeted Magus "I'm one of the -"
"Knights of sir something's army" Magus interrupted "Already heard that when you beat Metallica"
"You're mean!" Lavitz responded, a little offended.
"What's a knight like you doing here anyway?" Magus asked "Shouldn't you be protecting your king?"
"Um... Yeah, I don't really remember much" Lavitz answered "One day I was training with my friends and suddenly I'm here..."

Poor Lavitz, being confused sucks. Anyway, I went to visit my mother again, needed a little rest.



This time I was a little worried about Cyrus not noticing me... But I told my mother I was sad because of leaving.

Magus really loves that TV.



"Time to catch a new Pokemon?" Magus asked.
Of course Magus... Let's hope for something strong!



Uh... Whatever.



"Welcome sir to my new army!" Lavitz greeted.
"Uh... hi" Sess responded, covering his face with his little claws.
"Weak and shy?" Magus mocked "Not the best we have gotten"
"You're really not a nice guy huh?" Lavitz responded.
"I'm just honest" Magus replied.
"I'm weak now..." Sess answered "But maybe I'll be strong someday!"

I hope so...

---------------------------------------

Comments: And here we have the first team members. Lavitz, a Dratini that was a knight? Name comes from Legend of Dragoon. Sess... I've never used the Paras line before, I hope it survives long enough. Damn 4x weaknesses. Also, some of the rival's Pokemon will get personalities and development, like Metallica here.

On the next update; #3: Living a jubilife.

I have a feeling that Sess is going to live long enough to be a Parasect, then he's going to rape much of Sinnoh... until he dies a sudden fiery death.

Congrats on the Dratini :v:

Damn paras got effect spore. His other ability (damp?) is so much better. Anyway keep him away from his usual enemies and put him against water and psychic types. Got nothing on them. Not sure about dark types though since most of them can learn SE moves against him.(Let the umbreons FEAR him)
