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.

I moved to Cinnabar island. The team navigated the pokemon mansion slowly but surely. If I weren’t doing the Nuzlocke I would have grabbed some cool pokemon there like a Muk or a DITTO. But I didn’t!
Using my SLOWBRO and PIGEOT I was able to navigate my way through. I also was able to easily handle Blaine with my SlowBRO.
I am hoping to level up my Armees and use it for TOXIC.
I went to Veridian City to face down the final gym Leader Giovanni. The gym had strong trainers for sure and Giovanni was strong. I was worried he had FISSURE like he did in the original games but in this generation they gave him Earthquake instead. My SlowBRO was able to handle him.
I won. I was nervous but I was able to beat my rival again using SLOWBRO and the rest of my team.
I went to Victory Road.
I wanted to train my ARMESS but I faced a GEODUDE. The wild GEODUDE used SELF DESTRUCT! and killed my Tentacruel. rest in peace.
Now I am training a second SLOWPOKE and VENONAT to round out my team.
then I’ll be ready to fight the elite four.
My Nuzlocke continues in Pokemon LeafGreen. In my last post (The Darkest Hour) my team was decimated by Koga (poison master) and only Sprout (Venusaur) survived.
After some luck and grinding my team is back and ready for action. In order to rebuild I ventured down to the Pokemon Mansion in Cinnabar Island and I got lucky to encounter a Vulpix! YES!
And then on a whim when I was in Celadon City I decided to surf in that water by that dude’s house (where you get softboiled). I encountered a slowpoke which I caught. It was only level 16 though (and my Venusaur was level 45).
Over the past few weeks I have been doing a lot of grinding to level up a Pigeotto, vulpix, and slowpoke.
After much patience and determination I got my team back on good footing.
So today I went through the Silph Co, defeated my rival, defeated Giovanni, and took care of Sabrina! My Slowbro did most of the heavy lifting. He is a beast because he has high health, high defense, and he is psychic water type.
My renewed team:
Level 47 Slowslow (SlowBro)
Level 45 Poops (Pigeot)
Level 39 Flame (Ninetales)
Level 49 Sprout ( Venusaur)
Level 13 Armees (Tentacool) (was going to use that before I got slowpoke)
Level 36 Jet (Pigeot)
my next move is to venture to Cinnabar island and continue my journey!
