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.

Nuzlocke Challenge Part 2, The Darkest Hour

I was continuing on in my pokemon journey.    I got a Magikarp which I evolved into Gyrados only for purposes of using it for Surf.  I feel Gyrados is too overpowered.

My combination of Pidgeot and Venusaur allowed me to handle Team Rocket with ease and I could use my Pidgeot to handle the 4th gym leader Erica.     I got the Silph Scope and the Poke Flute.  I woke up Snorlax and killed it with my Machop, using Low Kick.

I made my way down the bikers lane to reach Fuschia City.  I went through the safari zone to go ahead and get Surf as well as getting Strength from the Warden with no teeth.

But,  I was just too eager.

I thought I was prepared for My battle with the 5th Gym Leader Koga.

My team going into the battle:

Level 40 Venusaur,  Level 45 Pidgeot, Level 28 Machoke, Level 27 Dugtrio, Level 24 Duduo, and level 20 Gyrados

My plan was to wipe out his team using my Pidgeot.

Koga has a Koffing, Muk, Koffing, and Weezing.  All poison types.   I underestimated the strength of his level 39 Muk.       His MUK had Toxic, Sludge, Acid Armor, and Minimize.

By the time the battle with Koga was done the only pokemon I had left over was my Venusaur !!!!

He wiped out my team using his Muk.    I thought I was done for and his Muk would kill my Venusaur as well but late in the battle I think he ran out of PP on his Sludge attack because he kept on trying to use Acid Armor, Toxic, and Minimize.  Luckily my Venusaur was not affected by Toxic.   So I just barely managed to make it through that battle.

Now I am going to need to grind to get my NEW team up to the proper levels.

My current new team:

Level 40 Venusaur, Level 23 Pigeotto, Level 14 Geodude, Level 15 Gastly, Level 13 bell sprout, and level 5 magikarp.

I shall not give up and my Nuzlocke Challenge shall continue!
