Pokemon Nuzlocke – The Final Battle

I was able to get my team leveled up to fight the elite four.  I thought I could use Victory Road for leveling but I was mistaken. I had a Tentacruel with TOXIC I was going to use but he got killed by a self destruct Geodude in Victory Road.

So I take a more safe route to leveling.   I used my VS SEEKER and fought the bikers west of the 4th gym leader Erica.   After many hours I got my team leveled up.

My team going into it:

Level 65 Slowbro

Level 55 Slowbro

Level 55 Pigeot

Level 55 Venusaur

Level 55 Ninetales

Level 55 Venomoth

I was ready for the Final Battle!

I fought past Lorelei’s team with ease using my SLOWBRO and plenty of potions.      My Ninetales stepped in to wipe out the Jynx!

Bruno I thought would be easy.  Unfortunately his Hitmonchan KO’d my Pigeot.  I had Pigeot use fly which did huge damage but then his Hitmonchan used Counter and wiped out Pigeot.    That was my error I should have kept using Slowbro with Psychic.

I was able to take out the Ghost Trainer with ease using my psychic types.

Fighting Lance was a BATTLE.  His Gyrados was tough.  I had no electric moves so I had to use my Slowbro and potions.     One of my SLOWBRO has Ice beam so I could use that on his Dragonairs but they were tricky as they had Thunder Wave and Outrage.      His Dragonite was the real beast as his Outrage did huge damage to my team.  I was able to grind past him with my Slowbro and potions.

I went onto fight Gary my rival.   His Gyrados was tough again.   The tricky one was going up against his Exeggutor, since it is grass psychic.   My Pigeot had died.   I thought I could beat it with Slowbro but his Exeggutor had Giga Drain!   I used Ninetales and Fire Blasted over and over.  that got it.    The rest of his team was easy after that.

And just like that I was the league champion.  only lost my Pigeot in the battles.

I want to pay tribute to all of the various casualties I lost along the way.

The challenge was fun but it was stressful!  you REALLY feel the pain when one of your pokemon faints or gets hit by a critical hit.

Pokemon Red/Blue are Still BadAss (Yes.)

Red and Blue are packed full of Badass-ness.   There is no doubt.

Like that Rival battle theme (the final battle)! YES!   When that theme was playing you were thinking “This is some REAL shit happening right here!”     The music in the Pokemon Mansion — you are thinking “WOAH!  This is kind of techno-y WOAH!    oh shit I just picked up Solarbeam! YES!”

And then there is the Gym Leader Battle Music!   YES!    Orgasmically intense!   Everyone is thinking the same thing: “’bout to get one more badge playa!”     “HA HA HA foolish Erica, I picked Charizard — burn burn burn burn burn GAME OVER!”

And those designs!   Pikachu was a little chubby, and Raichu was a HUGE fatty!  Muk and Weezing looked exactly the way they should!   Mr. Mime was a Pokemon you don’t let near your children (“uh oh I’m about to touch something!”).    In Red/Blue Rhyhorn looked pretty derpy.     Mewtwo was a straight up Alien.   Arbok was HUGE!    Gloom was drooling.   And DRAGONITE just looked strange!    He is supposed to be a total badass, which is why you leveled up that Dratini…. and then he looks ultra derpy!        But DRAGONAIR is looking GOOD!     GENGAR, ALAKAZAM, BLASTOISE, and MACHAMP!   They all look great!

The game has an awesome soundtrack!    There are some game-changing moments.   Like if you catch that Dugtrio in the cave, you just gained an instant strong pokemon that can crush Lt. Surge!      You get the eevee and BOOM!   Flareon or Jolteon!     Once you stumble upon Zapdos in the Power Plant, OMG you can get rid of your electric type and flying type because Zapdos is a BEAST!

The game simply has a high level of “coolness.”   Your rival was tough (and an asshole  [especially for showing up when you get out of Dark Cave WTF?!?!]).    It has a definite sense of adventure and discovery.   AND the Elite Four was HARD!   Their pokemon were all high level and your Rival has a Level 70 Blastoise (big shift from the sequel GOLD where the Elite Four maxes out at 50).   Be SURE to get Ice Beam so you have a chance at beating LANCE (he has that cape).

HIGHLY RECOMMEND you check out the original pokemon games.   They are badass and they are CLASSIC!   gotta catch em’ all!
