I'd say it was Mr.DillButt who finished it, saying that your argument doesn't apply to this game style.

If you were talking about this game style then what you said makes even less sense.

You are only allowed the catch the very first pokemon you see in each area. For exemple, I just arrived in Lavender Town and I if I count my dead pokemons, I have 14. I didn't catch any pokemons in like 6 areas because I didn't want to have a bazillion of pidgey.

So yeah, it is possible to have 9 pokemons by S.S. Anne


Funny you mentioned that. When i started the chellenge, i only found ratatas, so i restardted my game.

It doesn't make sense for me to say that Charizard is much stronger than the other 2 starters in Nuzlocke?

No, it does not, specially when you're using the lvl 100 stats with 0 evs as an example.
Bulbasaur is definitely the strongest of the 3. He owns in the first 2 gyms (imo misty is the hardest trainer in the whole game as she'll easily kill our pokemons with starmie) and in the caves which makes him really easy to level. For the 3rd gym you can easily get a digglet and for the 4th you should have found a pidgey/spearrow by now so you have no need of a fire pokemon. For a water pokemon you can just get a vaporeon which is pretty good or wait for lapras and get an abra in cerulean instead of eevee.


I have one question about the rules. When it says we cannot trade does it mean we can't evolve kadabras and such? It says "stay in the spirit of the challenge" so I don't think evolving kadabras is against the rules.. What do you guys think?


EDIT: All my pokemons but my venosaur died.. fck it, I'm starting a new game.

Yes you can. I've asked the same question when i started the challenge and Fox said that's we can only trade to make pokemon evolve. It's on page 5 if your looking for it

You can evolve kadabras/gravelers and such, just no trading your uber level 100 team.

Started with bulbasaur. On route 22 I caught a lvl 5 monkey (awesome). He died 2 fights later against a lvl 4 ratata who crited. Tried to catch a pidgey before the caterpie zone, my bulbasaur killed him with 1 hit. Went into the caterpie zone, the first pokemon was a kakuna.

Fck this ****.

EVs work the same for all of them and can thus be ignored.
Lvl100 stats apply to all levels, but the difference being smaller the lower the level.

I can agree that Bulbasaur has the advantage on the second gym, but other than that it's not really something specific to just Bulb.

To me Slash and Flamethrower are kind of a big deal. The other 2 does not have skills as good as those by default. Is there some TM that changes that?

Skull bash, blizzard, hydro pump, surf and ice beam for squirtle. bulbasaur can inflict statuses like sleep which is pretty awesome, has razor leaf for his attack and can heal himself with giga drain or synthesis.

Oh, after further reading Skull Bash isn't as terrible as I thought. It raises defense by 1 while charging(1turn). In terms of damage it's considerably worse than Slash though. It deals 50 "damage" per turn compared to the 70 on Slash.
Hydro Pump is pretty good, but Flamethrower is better. Flamethrower has 100% accuracy while Hydro Pump has 80%. On 100 attacks Hydro Pump does an average of 1 direct "damage" extra, while Flamethrower is reliable damage and has a 10% chance to burn targets dealing 12.5% of their HP per turn and halving their Attack stat. Not to mention that it has 3 times more PP.
Blizzard and Ice Beam are both skills you need a TM for. Although I must agree that Ice Beam is a great skill (I don't like the "low" 70% accuracy of Blizzard).

Razor Leaf isn't that good. Sure, increased CrC, but that's very unreliable.
Giga Drain is pretty good, but needs the TM.
Although situational, I can't argue that Synthesis and Sleep are bad.
