[+] IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING ROM INFORMATION (that was redundant)
These are the changes I've made regarding trade evolutions and others:

-All regular trade evolutions now evolve at Level 30.
-All trade evolutions that involve a held item now evolve by level up with said item.
-Magneton and Nosepass now evolve by using a Thunderstone.
-Eevee evolves into Leafeon with a Leaf Stone.
-Eevee evolves into Glaceon by leveling up while holding NeverMeltIce DURING THE DAY.

In order to receive your ROM, IM Tigger on Skype and she will send it to you. This distribution of randomized and edited ROMs has been approved by admin Pillowcase.
[+] Reminder regarding updates
You have exactly one week to get to the first elimination point (Bugsy's Gym) starting now. Afterward, you will have two weeks to get to each consecutive elimination point, which is every other Gym. How you write your updates is completely up to your creative liberty, but they must include screenshots. Remember to post teamshots (Pokémon and their moves) at every elimination point!
So, your first deadline is to have beaten Bugsy's gym by Sunday, January 27th. Good luck to everyone!

If you need a refresher on the rules, just look here.

If you're having technical difficulties, please let me know!

That is all, and remember to have fun! :)

Alright, So I'm to the first gym.
[+] 1st badge

(I forgot to take a screenshot of naming my guy.)

"Well First of all, you've been researching pokemon. You want to see if there are any special affects of walking with your pokemon. Since you can't get that girl to do it you'd need my help."
"That's correct."


"Just a ponyta, nothing wrong with-"

"Okay, a water pokemon. Just a coincidence."

"And it's grass, fire, water. With Fire for the water starter, water for the grass starter, and grass for the fire starter. (The colored name means that it's what is would be if it wasn't RNG'd[so in the order I showed it be Totodile, Cyndaquil, Chikorita])"

"Hey, pick me."
"Did you just talk poliwhirl?"
"Yeah, Call me Drummer Girl"

*Le egg aquired*

"Le wild Rival appeared, sent out Dead meat."
(Insert forgotten photo of Defeating rival)
"And that's dealt with. Hey look his trainer card."

(Cause Simon hates everyone... and is now a Ginger. :xd: )
route 29 catch:

Dead.
Route 46 catch:

Also dead.
Route 30 catch:

"Hello, I'm Joe Jonas."
"Yeah, whatever."

(Couldn't think of a good name, also route 31 catch)

"I'm sorry, do you forgive me?"
"NO!"

(Ruins catch)
"Hello, I'm Johnny Cash."
"Hey, how did we get down here?"
"I-I don't know."

"Great, you shot the wrong thing."
"I'm sorry."
"It's alright."
"Why does he get special treatment?"

"Hey look a donphan."
"Ya gonna catch me or what? Also call me Pete Best."
"Can I call ya Petey for short?"
*glare*
"I guess not."
*1 sweep of Sprout tower later*
"You guys ready for the gym?"
"Yup." "Yes." "Whatever." "I'm game." "I'd rather face my brother Kevin."
"OKAY! LET'S GO!"

"That was easy."

"Egg aquired."
"And not a moment too soon, it's getting dark."
I suck at Nuzlockes

So do the backup singers get our ROMs and start playing along now or do we wait until we're needed?

My other runs got completely eaten by Photobucket deciding it wanted $40 a month for the right to share screenshots.

So how does being a backup work? If someone has to quit after say Jasmine do I have. Week to catch up to that point? Is the order of the backups the order in which they are picked?

I have a question, though.
Is the Skype group for contestants only, or is it open for voters, too?

So as back-ups, we get our OWN hacks? I just assumed we'd get hand-me-downs of the previous contestant. But hey, this is better! You know, if I understand correctly...

Just popping in to say that YES I AM VERY BUSY TONIGHT. :V I don't even have enough time to finish this sent-

Jk. BUT I do have enough time to say this: IF YOU ARE A BACKUP AND WANT A RANDOMIZED FILE, SEND ME A PM HERE, ON THE FORUMS.

Tomorrow I will make randomized ROMs for each backup and send them to you over Skype, or, if you prefer, email.

Thanks everyone and I can't wait to see everyone's posts! <3

(To Killr: Omg that Palkia. I think you might've broken the game. XD)

I'm assuming that I'm allowed to do this, but if I'm not, then I'll remove it asap.
[+] Meet Daisy
Prior to the Nuzlocke Idol Audition:

~Sithi uhhmm ingonyama~

...

~Sithi uhhmm ingonyama~

...

Mom: Daisy, what are you doing up there? You're rattling the whole house with that Japanese crap. Cut it out!

Daisy: Mom, it's for choir. I have to practice or else I'll be kicked out!

Mom: I'd rather you get removed than listen to youspew that Japanese shit. Our neighbors will think we're going back to our "homeland" or some shit like that.

Daisy: It's not even Japanese, mom. Grow up.

After that, I tuned her out. She's really starting to become a bitch... She's probably realizing that I'm getting closer and closer to 18, which means I'll be leaving her soon. She's really pushing for it, regardless of how much money I won't have in a place like Johto. I'll be living with the wild Pokemon...

The Lion King musical is coming up, and I have to nail down these lyrics before next week! If I don't, then I'll be cut from the list of vocalists, which is the last thing I want. These musicals are the types of things I like to sing for, so I will not let myself be limited by my mother!

~Ingonyama nengw' enamabaal...
Ingonyama nengw' enamabaal...
Ingonyama nengw' enamabaal...~


My mom walks into my room before I could sing it a 4th time. Her face is red, and I've honestly never seen her so angry. What's wrong with her all of a sudden?

Mom: Did you fucking hear me, you little shit?!... That's it. I don't care anymore. Go try out for that Nuzlocke Idol shit if you love your fucking singing so much, and never come back to this goddamn house, do you understand me? I never want to see your damn face again.

She literally picks me up, carries me down the stairs, and throws me out of the house... What the fuck? She never does this. She never gets mad. This is... what?

What's happened to her? Something had to mentally corrupt her or something. There's no way she just became like this all of a sudden without any reasoning behind it... Hmm...

Anyways, as much as I hate singing pop songs, I might as well try out for Nuzlocke Idol like she suggested... Just in case she is serious with her threat.

----------

After the audition:

Woo! I can't believe I made it! Mommy is going to be so proud of me! I can't wait to tell her! There's a pay phone over there... I'll just use that.

Mother: Hello?

Daisy: Mom! You'll never guess what just happened!

...

She hung up.

...

She was serious about everything. She expects me to win this and live on my own. Making it is one thing... Winning? Completely different story. She just doesn't care anymore I guess.

This also means that I'll have to travel to other places around Johto, meaning that all of that practice for the Lion King was for nothing... Ah well. At least I'll be singing around all of Johto!

----------

The first thing I was told to do after I nailed my audition was to see Elm and talk to him about a starter Pokemon...

Here's the thing though. I was by my house, I looked through the window, and I saw my mother with an older man! She kicked me out of the house so she could have sex with another man?! That bitch!

Anyways, so I was crying by my house, which is actually next to Elm's lab, and a Buneary appears out of no where to comfort me.



It's like she was there for me, and she was so adorable too! I had no idea where she came from, but she just slowly walked up to me and actually cuddled with me! It was so cute! I wish I had a picture!

Feeling way more relaxed, I decided to sing to her the last part of the Lion King musical. She seemed to really like it, too! Hopefully we would become the greatest of friends before I had to leave for Nuzidol. She'd be here when I got back too, right?

...

~It's The Circle of Life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle
The Circle of Life~
:'D

I love it, Dooms. ^_^

Also, before we forget, a brief interruption/announcement:

IMPORTANT INFO ON GYM BATTLE LEVEL CAPS:

You can not be 3 (three) levels higher than the Gym leader's strongest Pokemon. ALSO, you may only have HALF your team at the level cap, the other half must be at least one level lower. For all Leaders this means the level cap (what you CAN be at, but NO HIGHER) is:

Falkner: 15
Bugsy: 19
Whitney: 21
Morty: 27
Chuck: 33
Jasmine: 37
Pryce: 36
Clair: 43

Elite Four level restrictions will come later.

For the first elimination point (AFTER Bugsy's Gym), you may train all your 'mons to LEVEL 20 (TWENTY).

These rules may be subject to change.

Have fun! :3
