Nuzlocke Challenge: AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION
« on: June 21, 2010, 12:05:17 PM »

Yeah, I'm splitting this off from the HARD MODE thread that spawned it.

I'm going to play some (more) Pokemans. And you're going to help me.

Da Rulez:

1) I'll be catching the first thing I meet in a random encounter any given route (cave, dungeon, area, or whatever) and that's it for that route, etc. forever.

2) If it faints, it's gone forever and may no longer be used. If the whole party wipes, I have to get six fresh guys out of the PC box and use them instead. If the party wipes and there's no one left in PC storage, :gameover:.

3) No active duplicates. If I have a Zubat, either in the party or PC storage, I'll skip over any random wild Zubats (or Golbats) for the purposes of determining what I'll catch to satisfy rule 1. If I catch a Zubat and it faints (and is thus :leaving:), any later Zubats I run into may be caught.

4) I'll take and use freebies. These are mons that are found via scripted encounters or the ones people trade or give you, e.g. Wynaut eggs, Fighting Dojo prizes, Voltorbs pretending to be items. Since part of the challenge is having a limited number of mons available, freebies that are offered in an unlimited amount (like the Celadon Game Corner selling Abras and Dratinis) will only be used once. Freebies offered in limited amounts (like a Kecleon blocking the road) may be replaced if they faint.

5) Once I have seven mons captured, and again after each leg of the story/Pokemon Gym/whatever, I'll be asking YOU THE VIEWER to vote on which mons make up my team. I'll also ask for votes when a choice comes up, like how to evolve an Eevee or which Fighting Dojo prize to take. Voting will remain open until I get around to this thread again to tally it, but will always be open for at least 24 hours. I'll take the team of the six mons who have the most votes, so things like "I don't care who else you take as long as you keep Dustox and Snorlax in the party" will count for those two.

6) Updates will be posted as those MSPaint comics you kids like so much.


So, first up...

WHICH VERSION WILL I BE PLAYING

You can choose from Emerald or Leaf Green, because those are the ones I have. Emerald will probably make for a longer LP because I'm pretty sure it's a longer game, but LeafGreen will make it more likely I actually succeed thanks to better type diversity. Yes, Kanto has no Dark-types and only one Steel-type, but it's also not HALF SURFING ROUTES and has better freebies.

Also

WHICH STARTER WILL I BE TAKING ALONG

Vote for both versions if you want. ("Play Leaf Green and take Squirtle. But if you play Emerald, take Treecko because I openly hate you.") For the uninitiated or those of you who lose track of which mons are in which game, the Leaf Green starters are Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander. The Emerald starters are Treecko, Mudkip, and Torchic.

Voting is open for game version and starter.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Oh, I totally saw this coming. Once I posted this thread, I went home and started a Treecko run before voting had even been open a couple of hours. AND THUS:

Digging it.
Loved how you used Treecko more as a club. That was a nice touch

The tail is flexible, so he's more like a flail.

Looks like Cyan and BongoBill are pulling this one out for you.

So: Cyan, Bongo, Guild, Thad, Classic.. eh, Dohl.

Something I didn't consider before: If you wanna vote for <blank space>, sure, fine, whatever go ahead. It'll be filled by whatever I catch in the next route. Asking me to only carry half an active party is a bit harsh, though. IF I LOSE YOU LOSE TOO

Also man Lombre has some weird body proportions I just can't pin down from one panel to another.
