HOWEVER. Its not a very good game to Nuzlocke (the games website says its possible but I dont see how), because Pokemon are pretty scarce in this game. Example: the first gym is in the first town, and there are like six squares of grass available with something like five available encounters. Whats a poor girl to do?
HALF A NUZLOCKE!
- [+] Rules!
1. If a Pokemon faints, its dead. No exceptions.
2. I can catch whatever I want, wherever I want. This is why its only half a Nuzlocke- because Im only playing with one of the core rules. OTHER ADVENTURES.
2a. Im probably going to keep this at around two or three per area because encounter rates are really, REALLY low in most places. Aint nobody got time for that.
3. Nickname everything based of Seventh Sanctums Evil Name Generator. Because grimdark.
4. Limit to 15 of each item. More than my usual limit, but this games hard af.
5. Bullshit clause activated
6. THIS IS PARTIALLY BLIND- Ive watched a few playthroughs of this, but honestly, I dont always pay super close attention when I watch playthroughs so. Yeah.
- [+] The Moment Explodes
I really like Ames design. It appeals to the 13-year-old scene kid in me.
(You might already be an accomplished) (remaining)
(all that will be left is humans).
Such dark. Much apocalypse.
(Only recently have we begun)
WELL WHAT TOOK SO LONG.
And Im going to beat their asses like Christian Grey.
I love that Neither is an option, I really do. I identify as female so thats what Im choosing, but the fact that there is a Neither is wonderful.
And you get a small degree of customization. I like the design on the right better, so thats the one Im choosing. I like her hair.
I can even spell my whole name!
Or will it?
Well thats nice of you, Ame.
Just the fucking frogs outside my windOHGODITSABOMBRUN.
Oh right I got knocked out by the bomb nbd
(BOOOOM, so I came running!)
This is a really, really good game. But good Lord, is Julia annoying. Shes also the Electric-type gym leader. And she likes blowing things up. Dont you like where this is going?
Also, gym-gym. Seriously. How old are you.
IT WAS A TERRORIST ATTACK YOU DUMB COW.
I like Ame, she has sense.
This bit is kind of wall-of-text-y, so basically Julia is impressed with their work and Ame is trying to find the culprit, so she leaves and tells me to go to the Grand Hall to meet with someone who can help me get started.
GASP CURSING IN A POKEMON GAME YOURE GOING TO POKE JAIL. Also her underreaction made me lol
uh . Um oh. Ow. Feels bad, man.
And on that note
Likewise! Because youre not Julia!
Oh good :)
(Hes being interrogated and hes not acting alone. SUSPENSE.)
Victorias here to get a Pokemon, too, because her friend Kiki said it would be good for her to start the League over. Not sure how that works but okay, shes our rival.
Really? 10/10 would rival again
DO YOU SEE THIS SHIT.
DO. YOU SEE. THIS SHIT.
THAT IS EVERY SINGLE STARTER IN EVERY SINGLE POKEMON GAME EVER.
TOP ROW FIRE. MIDDLE ROW GRASS. BOTTOM ROW WATER. FROM ALL SIX GENS
DID I MENTION REBORN IS AWESOME. BECAUSE REBORN IS AWESOME.
Hello favorite starter ever who Ive never gotten to use in a run on the forums yet because I cant do an X screenshot-locke~
The random name generator has spoken. And it has bestowed an extremely stupid name.
Hes Calm- it could definitely be worse. And he knows Ember already! That Magician could be niiiice. Were gonna get along just fine, Flamebrood.
Hes talking about Ame.
Even his sprite is flamboyant
Flamebrood isnt scared of your Nidoran. He even got a Burn off, first hit!
His dialogue doesnt change if you choose another gender. Points for being inclusive. Minus points for being really, really uncomfortable.
NOT THAT KIND OF FUN YOU CREEPY LITTLE SHIT
IM NOT. I DONT FUCK CREEPY PURPLE PEOPLE I JUST MET.
Then Victoria asks for a battle, too.
Im not as big a fan of her sprite as the other ones.
This could be annoying early on. Later Ill be able to abuse dual-types but for now its time for Scratch spam.
SWEET JESUS. And thats with the free Potion I forgot to screencap (one of the NPCs gives it to you). I forgot how bulky Tepig is. Granted, Ive only played part of Gen 5. But still.
Then I got the Pokedex, Pokegear, Running Shoes, Pokeballs, and the reveal that Victoria is an apprentice of someone named Kiki at Apophyll Academy. She says Kiki is the Fighting Gym leader, too. She encourages us to look around for Pokemon, then visit the Peridot City Gym.
And then we get to peek into the interrogation room with the guy who blew up the train.
Reborn is not even in the general area of fucking around.
Oh yeah and the culprit is sitting in a metal chair. And now hes on fire.
NOW LETS CATCH SHIT. Remember, this is only half a Nuzlocke. So I can catch whatever I want, itll just die if it faints. OTHER ADVENTURES.
Catches for Opal Ward. Clawmiser is Relaxed with Unnerve, which is not great and not Pickup. Dreamthought (which is not an intimidating name at all generator what the hell) is Timid with Insomnia. Venomslime is Gentle with Intimidate, which seems like an oxymoron. It also took me the better part of two days to get these two.
Got the Old Rod. Interesting thing I failed at showing- the Old Rod catches Grimer instead of Magikarp. The explanation is that the lake is polluted. I thought that was a nice touch.
Wonka Factory confirmed
If you play Reborn, make sure you talk to every NPC. I just found the first gift of the run! I dont actually want a Kriketot, so Hungercuts going to live in the box.
Found this guy, too. Thats actually really adorable. Terrorburn, youre going to be nice and safe from the rain IN THE BOX.
you know, considering this isnt a Nuzlocke, Im being really picky about what I use and dont use.
WELL HELLO THERE. Found this guy in the Underground Railnet while totally lost trying to get back to a Pokemon Center to deposit Terrorburn. Hes Hardy.
This nice man battles you to see if youre worthy of his garden full of Grass and Bug types. Theres also another one who battles you to see if youre worthy of his reservoir of Water types. Lets see what weve got!
Hateflicker is Serious with Shield Dust- shell be awesome for the early game. Perhaps youve noticed but there are a looooot of Poison types that Confusion will help wreck once she evolves. Flickersoak is Lonely with Water Veil, and on the team because type diversity and because Ive never seen a Finneon used. Even though he only knows Pound.
I think we all feel that way about Pachirisu. It is catchable, I just forgot how to catch its attention and get it. Oops.
I have no idea what that is on the left. I think its an Espurr but nothing happens when I talk to it. Also some guys are beating up on a Panpour and thats just not cool.
You ASSHOLES. But then I beat the shit out of them. It was a double battle against a Poocyhena and Lillipup.
Look at the hate flickering in those red eyes. Look at it.
Boxed4lyfe. At least hes not being beaten anymore. But I wanted the Espurr ;-;
The other guy says Dont tell Joey I lost. Presumably the Top Percentage Rattata will eat their faces off. Or something.
