Okay, at long last here’s the latest Nuzlocke update. This will be a longer one, kinda played all the way through the Team Rocket radio tower takeover, and the ice cave. Let us begin!
So I got the call, and headed back to Goldenrod City to see what was happening at the Radio Tower, and of course, Team Rocket had shown up once again, taking it over to try to get Giovanni to come back to them. First I had to go to the Underground Tunnel to get a Team Rocket costume, but once going to the Radio Tower, my dick rival Manhiem made me switch out of it. Heading up into the tower I battled every Team Rocket member that was there, even though some were avoidable. As usual, there really wasnt any challenge at all, just a bunch of weak pokemon in the 20’s the entire way.
> I had to leave to heal multiple times, because as I found out in this Team Rocket encounter, lots of them had Koffings, and lots of them used Self-Destruct to almost kill members of my team.
Upon reaching the top of the left hand path up the Tower, I found the Director! Or so I thought, but it was actually Petrol in disguise. So the battle began. His team consisted of 5 Koffings, and 1 Wheezing. Luckily for me, he didn’t use Self-Destruct at all, so I took them all down easy enough. After the battle, he told me the director was underground, so I healed up at the Pokemon Center, and headed back to the Underground Tunnel.
I ran into a Kimono Girl yet again, who rambled about some stuff, then went on her way. Upon entering, I had to battle Manhiem!
His first pokemon was a level 30 Golbat, which I took down with Adad with a few Thunder Punches. Next he decided to use his Feraligatr(level 32, so I kept Adad in and one Thunder Punch finished it off quickly. Next up was Sneasel(level 32), which I took out with Anshar with Confusion/Fly. Next up, Magnemite(level 28) whcih went down with 2 Flame Wheels from Agni. Lastly, was a level 30 Haunter. So when he threw this one out, he pulled a Heath Ledger, and asked me “Why so serious?!” I had to make a note of this, because it was funny to me when it happened :P Anyway, Haunter I took out with more Confusion from Anshar, and the battle was won!
So I made my way through their little underground area, beating all the weak Team Rocket members along the way, and got the Card Key from the Director. So I left, healed up my team, and headed back to the radio tower. The right side behind the Card Key door had a few weak people, and the “Boss” of Team Rocket, who all fell easily, and they were beaten! For my heroic task, the Director gave me a Rainbow Wing, and sent me on my way.
So I flew back to Mahogany Town, switched out Abmul for Clonk(who I taught strength), and headed east. I battled all the weak trainers on the path, and surfed to the tiny patch of grass to see what I could catch. For this area, I got…..a Weepinbell, which I named Awalto! With that done, I headed into the Ice cave thing. My first battle in here was a Zubat, so I didn’t bother to catch it. I made my way through, battling weak little pokemon, and eventually made it to Blackthorne City. Upon arriving, I got rid of Clonk again for Abmul.
Decided to go ahead and get my catch for the area south of the city out of the way, so I went into some grass, and battled….a level 20 Phanphy! So I captured this, and named in Amphan!
So currently, I’m just slowly leveling up my team, trying to get everyone up around level 40 before I attempt this pain in the ass Dragon Gym. So once I finally am all leveled up and going to battle the gym, I’ll update once again. I’ll end this with a photo of my team, as well as the move list for them all:
