Pokemon Omega Ruby Nuzlocke Challenge
So because I didn't have enough on my plate with reading Guardians of the Galaxy, Walking Dead, and playing Bioshock Infinite and Borderlands Pre Sequel, I thought I would buy the new Pokemon game. I really didn't enjoy the last generation of games and the only reason I actually finished X was because I was on an 18 hour flight to Japan and had nothing else to do. This time though, I am undertaking the Nuzlocke Challenge. If you don't know what it is, there's some detailed information on Bulbapedia. The basic rules consist of; 1) If a Pokemon dies in battle it is dead and cannot be used. 2) You can only use the first Pokemon you encounter in each area. 3) Losing a battle = Game Over. I've also taken it upon myself to add some additional rules such as no fleeing and no breeding.
When I attempted this in Pokemon X, I got as far as the 5th gym in Lumiose city where my whole team was annihilated. I was also playing with the "no evolving Pokemon" rule then however, so it was just a bit more challenging even with my Pikachu with Eviolite. Let's see how far I get this time. Going to be posting updates via Twitter.
