Because the fabulous Key-chan is a terrible influence on me, I'm doing an AlphaSapphire nuzlocke--it's in the same universe as my other stories and actually takes place at the same time as Calamity Calls, BUT it follows a protagonist who has nothing to do with the protagonists of those stories, so it won't be 100% necessary to read them to understand Isabelle's world (I think...). Isabelle and Shrunk the Mudkip won't be getting involved in the Magma/Aqua A plot, but that doesn't mean that they don't have a difficult journey ahead of them...
[+] Rules

1. Catch only the first Pokemon you encounter on each route.
1.1. No dupes. After three tries, you get nothing. This extends along evolutionary lines.
1.2. Shiny Pokemon are exempt from catching rules.
1.3. Gift Pokemon count as that area's encounter.

2. Nickname all Pokemon.

3. If a Pokemon faints, it is dead. Box it and never use it again.

4. The experience share may not be used (because the Gen VI exp share is SO BROKEN)
4.1. Pokemon-amie also may not be used.

Because I'm trying to keep this project light on time investment (I have NO TIME IN MY LIFE WHY AM I DOING THIS TO MYSELF), at the moment I'm hoping to get an update once a week but no promises, and the run will also be communicated as much as possible through Isabelle's snapchats and texts to her best friend, younger brother and mother, a style inspired by the infinitely superior Xeno: Letters From Hoenn which you should most definitely check out.

Anyhoodle... why WAS there only a Treecko and Torchic in Professor Birch's bag when Saylee and Key came across him in chapter 1 of Calamity Calls...?

Something to tide us over until Dimensional Destruction? Nice of you.

@wedward45: Well, the Sunday oneshots were intended to be something to tide readers over until Dimensional Destruction, but then this just happened XD If you need a little something more... the fabulous Key-chan is also writing a story called Deliverance which, unlike this, is VERY CRUCIAL to Dimensional Destruction. Aside from that, you should read it simply because it's written by the fabulous Key-chan who continually inspires me to do cruel, heartless and strange things and writes the BEST snark.

"The worst thing you can do is nothing."

@JollyJosh: Thank you! Glad you think so!

@TheWookieRascal: Thanks! :D

Isabel's mom sounds like a wonderful, caring woman.

Does anybody know a decent fake snapchat generator? I've been using Snapsr.com so far, but for some reason it's had a glitch or a tantrum or something and I'm just getting error messages when I try to use it.

@Wedward45: what do you think the pokeverse equivalent of Tiger Moms are? Arcanine Moms?

And then I realized that prntscr is the solution to all of my problems.

@Wedward45: I'd like to do more with the appearance of the Pokemon in the snapchats, but my image editing software genuinely just amounts to Paint ^_^;

Wow, you do not have good luck with the Poochyena line.

@wedward45: well, I guess it's not a bad thing that I'm not going to end up using all the same Pokemon as I did in my Emerald nuzlocke... I guess it's specifically I have bad luck with that one bloody thief >_>

I somehow knew Isabella would start fangirling if she ever met Steven.

“Albert grunted. "Do you know what happens to lads who ask too many questions?"
Mort thought for a moment.
"No," he said eventually, "what?"
There was silence.
Then Albert straightened up and said, "Damned if I know. Probably they get answers, and serve 'em right.”

@Wedward45: who wouldn't? Well, aside from folk who aren't attracted to guys. Maybe even some of them. HE'S SO GODDAMN PRETTY IN ORAS.

"The stories never said why she was wicked. It was enough to be an old woman, enough to be all alone, enough to look strange because you have no teeth. It was enough to be called a witch. If if came to that, the book never gave you the evidence of anything. It talked about 'a handsome prince'... was he really, or was it just because he was a prince that people called handsome? As for 'a girl who was as beautiful as the day was long'... well, which day? In midwinter it hardly ever got light! The stories don't want you to think, they just wanted you to believe what you were told..."

Unless you're a Nuzlocker, you never ever give the Zubat line enough credit.

@wedward45: I never would've used a Zubat before I nuzlocked and had to and OH MY GOD THEY'RE ACTUALLY AWESOME! Especially Crobat... who knew, eh?

"It was hard enough to kill a vampire. You could stake them down and turn them into dust and ten years later someone drops a drop of blood in the wrong place and guess who's back? They returned more times than raw broccoli."

@Nafram: I wasn't sure about it at first either, but it's been fun to experiment with the format and I'm glad you're enjoying reading it--I guess that means it's working!

What if there was a TV series called "Gym Moms" - like "Dance Moms", but with Pokemon Gyms...
Also I thought Ace was a Zubat...?

Really like how this run is turning out, and the story too!

I'm guessing mom's gonna replace Brendan in the battle on route 110?
