Papermonkey's 'Nuts Lock' part 6 by Paperiapina Papermonkey's 'Nuts Lock' part 6 by Paperiapina
Rules and stuff:
[link] << Previous pagething * Next pagething >> [link]


A bit shorter installment this time. I have sketched several pages ahead and was planning to put up more than just these two pages, but in the end I decided to go back to re-sketch the next pages. I sketch these pages while I'm playing, so I pretty much end up just documenting what happens, but it made the dialogue of a certain encounter on the next page sound stiff, unnatural and stupid, so redraw it is.

Say hi to bidoof number four, and a new teammate that actually got to the team. And for the first time ever I finally have a full team! 8D I was kind of hoping to catch a buneary, mainly because I just love drawing them and their evolved forms (those ears! So much love for the ears), but I'm no poké-racist. Wyrm is good too.

Wyrm was named after my butterfree from HeartGold.

And I swear, that every time Roger ended up fighting with a budew it was either critical hit or the budew flinched (it took two normal Bites to take them down). Every. Single. Time. Quick, hide your flowers, he's going to eat them all! (Even his pokedex says about his personality: "Loves to eat" and "Happily eats anything" although I think it refers to poffin flavors instead of actually anything but still...)

Also here, have a Shale being cute:

Not that it is a bad thing... I'm actually very happy. :XD:

One question:

Luckly, it didn't happend here but what will happend if one of your team mates will faint in the next double battle? Is it like it is dead or revived by the other trainer?

If it faints, it dies. Reviving services don't exist (they are ignored) since they would be cheating.

I think in most nuzlockes when the first encounter is a double battle you can choose either. I Love how you pose roger when he is stationary and Osamu may be the happiest Luxio ever. In the games they always look so serious.

When you first enter the forest and you join up with Cheryl, you don't necessarily have to wait until she leaves to catch Pokemon. On wild Pokemon double battles, if you K.O. one of them, you can catch the one that's alive.

I dont understand why people catch multiples of one pokemon :|

I can see catching ones that have alternate evolutions like gloom into vileplume or bellosum but... ._.

Rule of the run, Only try to catch the first encounter in any area and nothing else. Sometimes I'm just out of luck and duplicates happen.
(Why I'm actually catching them all instead of just ignoring them and moving on, though, is a mystery.)

I dont get why you catch only the first encounter though..o.O Ive never done that. Is there some kind of trick to it or some perk or something?

I'm playing it on Nuzlocke rules (google it, I know there are better ways to explain it than what I can do). But basically it's a set of (two) fan made rules with the purpose of making the Pokémon games harder and forming stronger emotional attachment to the 'mons you use in your team. In short you can only catch the first wild encounter on each area (thus limiting the number of available monsters and encouraging you to try 'mons you wouldn't otherwise try), and if a Pokémon faints in the game, it's dead and you'll have to release it, which in turn encourages you to take better care of them and form deeper emotional bonds.

It's a challenge.

"Loves to eat" is the characteristic. It means Roger's highest EV is in HP.

Still, pretty funny coincidence there. XD

I play a variant of the Nuzlocke challenge where if the first Pokemon you run across is a double (shinies excepted) of one that you have and it doesn't evolve into something different you can skip it and catch the next one you find. I've seen other people playing this way as well, which is why I don't have four plus Bidoofs in my party/box.
Reply
:iconpaperiapina:
Paperiapina Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2012  Student General Artist
Yeah, I've seen runs with that rule modification. I personally decided against using it myself because it kind of feels like cheating to me. Kind of like "okay I caught one of this stupid species I don't like, now I can stuff it into PC so that I never have to actually get to know it and can go search for my favourites instead". For me the whole idea of the run is try out new things I wouldn't have done otherwise and discover new favourites. You know, doing something new. Just feels more fair to me.

I was actually originally planning on dumping any bidoofs I'd get into the PC as soon as I could, but having no options -thanks to the duplicates I got- forced me to keep Molla in the team, and I'm glad I did. I've grown very fond of her.

Besides, it's fun this way. At least I hope people find my stupid struggles at least somewhat amusing.

It's not that I dislike Bidoofs, it's just I like my party to be well-rounded. If the first few routes didn't have basically the same Pokemon, I'd probably be more willing to just catch the first one I found (not that it matters, since my own piplup kept K.O-ing everything) rather than the first one that I have not already caught.

I really like Molla, and I hope the rest of your Pokemon adventure is as full of interesting characters as it is now. Keep up the awesome work!

Roger is a wonderful little Zubat. 8D

...Despite how much I dislike them when they mob me in caves, the Zubat line is quite good. :3
