Just Call Me Mr. Redshirt – Mobile Suit Nuzlocke Challenge Weeks14-15

If that title didn’t tip you off, things have been getting a little rocky in the Nuzlocke Challenge of late. Training BuCue in the Pokémon Mansion was cut short by that most dangerous of Nuzlocke moves, Pursuit. Apparently wild Raticates are advocates of fox hunting, and now I’ve lost a full party’s worth of Pokémon. But read on; things aren’t completely bad. Just disappointing.

After a little research on titles and such I finally concluded that reviving a single fossil was okay, so I picked Kabuto, named it Forbidden and set it for a little pillow training for a while (probably should have gone with Aerodactyl… might regret that later) At some point I’ll check Lapras’ area entry and see if I can take a prize from the Fighting Dojo after all.

Forbidden gained a few easy levels while Z’Gok and Sandrock cleared out Cinnabar Gym (forgot that Ground takes normal damage from Fire; that was nearly a hairy situation…) Volcanobadge in hand, I finally progressed to a new section of Leaf Green that I never reached before: the Servii Islands!

First things first, One and Two Islands afforded me a fresh chance to catch new Pokémon and they didn’t disappoint! One Island netted one of my all-time favourites, Ponyta! Long-time Gundam fans won’t be surprised to know I named it Fuunsaiki, mobile suit horse for the win! Surfing on Two Island yielded that pesky Slowpoke that I missed earlier, named Seravee. I rotated them into the party for training and headed for Three Island, where I ran smack into a gang of Bikers who killed Virtue. Fantastic, now I’m down one tank who I was really starting to rely on… A quick trip into Berry Forest to track down a lost little girl (a Hypno attacked, way to finally acknowledge your creepy Pokedex entries Game Freak!) rounded off a fortnight in which I guess you could say I broke even, more or less. Onward to more training and the final gym challenge!

  1. I lol’d at your title, poor red shirts have it rough! Glad to see that you’re still trucking it after a few setbacks. 😀

    • Thanks! I’m determined to get as far as I possibly can to improve my regular Pokémon training game! If the Elite Four end it for me then at least I’ve learned a lot!

      • I’m floored by your determination! The Nuzlocke challenge is a difficult and time consuming task, and you’ve kept at it all this time! It’s amazing! I can’t wait to see how this ends!

      • Oh, I expect it’ll end in bitter defeat! In either case, I plan to follow this up with a HeartGold Nuzlocke, but I’m not sure if I’ll log that or not.
