Oh wow this is quite interesting already! Great to see the return of some of the best nuzlockers here XD

I like how Danika is almost the opposite to Adam, which is a nice touch to the nuzlocke. Also, the relevant mention of the Unova Nuzlocke is a nice touch as well. I forgot how good nuzlockes were actually...good luck and nice "starter" choices too.

Aw, cheers! Yeah, it's good fun having two completely opposite characters =3


Danika's Diary

So I’ve had like the best day ever!!
I have caught SO MANY POKEMONS!
So, after I left the Pokemon centre to run away from the police, I found the most awesome Pokemon ever, who I just knew I would catch – a Hoothoot, which I have called Eli. He’s a lovely little bird, does the cutest thing where he blushes when I tell him good he did in battle!
Then Adam comes running up to me, and starts telling me some stuff about Pokemon dying in battle and I’m like “dude, I know, I totally saw what happened to Totodile” and he’s all ~you’re not taking this srsly at all x_x; ~ and I’m all “Uh, I am, I’m taking it so srs that I’m RUNNING FROM THE POLICE GDI”
I think he got bored and ended up going off towards Cherrygrove. I didn’t care, because even though he’s nice, he’s way too srs for me. Kio was really upset though. He was riding on Adam’s Doduo’s back and was like having the best ever time and was SO SAD when they left.
So I went to some other place and captured...
No it wasn’t really, it was a Geodude, which I captured and called Roxie because it’s a rock and Roxie sounds like rock.
But yeah, Roxie is AMAZING. Everything’s all TACKLE and she’s like NU-UH and then wins SHE’S SO AMAZING X-X;
So then we went and played up in the grass passed Cherrygrove (and we saw Adam and I really did try my best not to spy on him BUT IT’S SO EASY GDI ) but then this Ledyba appeared, so I caught him and called him Hilton, because it’s got five stars on its back and me and my mum stayed in a hotel called the Hilton and it was a five star hotel so that’s why! =D
So then we went a bit further up and I found a Rattata which is SO HARD TO PRONOUNCE OMG so I called him Ratter which is so much easier to say.
And then I saw something moving in this cave, so I went in and it was proper dark, so I went out again, but this Geodude came and attacked me, so I captured that too and called it Mason, because there are these things called stone masons and Geodude is a stone, so yeah.
So now I have two Geodudes but Roxie is so much better omg she’s so good x_x
And then it started getting dark, so I just laid down in the grass to watch the clouds change colour and I started writing my diary. Before it gets proper dark, I’m going to go and find somewhere to sleep – I can see some lights in the distance and I think it’s a gate, so there might be a town – I know there’s one close by. I can’t go back to Cherrygrove because of the police.


LV 9 Kio (Teddiursa)
LV 11 Roxie (Geodude)
LV 8 Eli (Hoothoot)
LV 3 Hilton (Ledyba)
LV 3 Ratter (Rattata)
LV 2 Mason (Geodude)

The battle was bangin. My Toto hadn’t levelled up enough, so it was just using Scratch, while Adam’s was using Water Gun (which wasn’t really doing much tbh.)

And then the /worst/ thing happened. Chikorita used this sharp leaf attack thing, and Totodile just fell over and stopped moving.

I didn’t know what to do. I had run to pick up Totodile (like I’d seen real trainers do on the TV when their Pokemon faints) but the way he felt in my arms was different to what he should have felt like. He didn’t stir and look up at me, expecting a smile of reassurance – he just laid there, not moving at all.

I looked up to see if Adam had noticed, but he was holding his Totodile just like me, and we looked at each other, and I think we both knew – our Totodiles had actually /died./

I dunno if the Chikorita-thief had realised what he’d done, but he smirked and told us we were pathetic, and began walking off – and that was when Adam’s egg started hatching, and this little beak appeared, and guess who hatched out..?

No, it wasn’t Dumbedore, but a Doduo. Anyway, in this like, last act of desperation to stop this guy and get Chikorita back, he tells his new Pokemon to use Peck – and it does, like pretty much FLYING across the grass and nipping Chikorita right on its leaf – and it knocked it out. 

Well, this shady dude (who stupidly told his name which I’m totes telling the police – he’s called Jeriko. Or Jericko. Jerry-ko is how you say it, whatever) flipped out and ran off, after calling his stolen Pokemon back into its Poke Ball.

Anyway, Adam was all “we have to get back to the Professor” and I’m all “dude I don’t have a Pokemon.” He told me to try and heal our Totodile at a Pokemon Centre, but I think he just wanted to give me something to do so I wasn’t thinking about it or something, idk. So he went to the Professor to see if he was okay and to tell him about his Totodile.

I go to the Pokemon Centre, and the nurse tells me that Elm’s Totodiles are definitely dead, and I’m like “woah I didn’t think Pokemon DIED in Pokemon battles” and she gives me this REALLY nasty look and I’m like “woah calm down /I/ didn’t kill them” and I think she’s gone to phone the police on me. =( So not only have I managed to let my Pokemon DIE, but this chick thinks I killed them.

But then my egg hatched and out came THE MOST ADORABLE THING EVER ADGJSAGDFKSJDHG – it was  a Teddiursa =33 who I have named Kio. You say it like “key-oh.” Like “Oh I found my keyo.” He doesn’t know about the two Totodile, and my Mum says you shouldn’t let babies see bad things, so I won’t tell him. HE will be my Pokemon from now on.

So...I’m sitting in the Pokemon centre and I’m thinking of running away before the police get here and arrest me for not saving the Totodile. Yeah. I’ll do that. Signing off. Bye.

Tim and Richard's HGSS Nuzlocke!

First of all, welcome back to those of you who remember our Unova challenge with Brian and Avalon. Those of you whom we do not recognise, or have yet to read our BW Nuzlocke, we greet you with open arms and invite you to warm yourself by the warm hearth of our new story. Introducing Adam and Danika's Nuzlocke adventure around Johto!


Danika’s Diary

This diary is turning more and more into a dream log. And I think that’s a good thing. My life is so boring that it makes it more interesting to read back, when I write about the dreams I have. When I’m 90, I’ll look back at my fifteen year old self and wonder why I had such screwed up nightmares.

In my dream, I was standing outside, and it was dead quiet. Usually, you can hear the Hoothoot calling to each other, or the sound of the sea in the distance. But in my dream, it was silent.

Then I could hear the stars speaking to me. It’s weird, I couldn’t tell you how I knew, I just did. The stars were talking to me, but I didn’t understand the language they were speaking. I got the impression they were getting fed up with me, because they stopped speaking with the mind-words (telekathy, is it?) and started showing me mind-pictures instead; deep underwater, endless submerged corridors, and the knowledge that something was down there with me, watching me.


And then I woke up, and it was just a usual, boring day in New Bark Town. Anyway, signing off now, I have planssssssss this morning!


Well, this will be an exciting update! I have my very first Pokemon! It’s not completely mine though, Professor Elm leant it to me...I’m getting ahead of myself! ^^; (My teacher tells me off for writing smilies – she says they’re supposed to stay on the screen, and aren’t for work books – but this is my diary, so idc! =D)

So, as per my usual Friday tradition, I went down to the Professor’s to help out, and there was this guy there, Adam, or something, and the Professor asked HIM to run an errand to Mr. Pokemon’s house. And he gave him a Pokemon, the CUTEST Totodile ever.

Naturally, I was upset by this and caused a bit of a scene – and so Professor Elm gave me a Totodile too!! So now we BOTH have one.


We go to Cherrygrove, get accosted by some weird old man that tries to give me his shoes, and then get to Mr. Pokemon’s (which is a TREK, by the way x_x ) and guess who’s there?


Not really, it was Professor Oak – which is still just as awesome to be honest. Anyway, he said he saw ‘Great Potential’ in me and gave me a Pokedex – and he gave one to Adam too (who’s pretty strange by the way. I don’t think he likes me. He spent the whole journey talking to his Totodile, which is a shame, because I’ve seen him at school, and he seems really nice.)

Anyway, Mr. Pokemon gave us two eggs to take back to Professor Elm, and then him and Professor Oak have just started chatting all philosophical and deep – Oak’s all “I believe that this world of ours is a chaotic, spinning ball of determinism,” and Mr. Pokemon says “Indeed – I sincerely believe that everything happens for a reason.” Which is why I’m now writing in my diary, because I just can’t keep up with this kind of heavy stuff ^^;

So! After we’ve finished this cuppa, me and Adam are going back home and giving the eggs to the Professor. Ossum!


Okay shiz just got srs. Not even sure how I’m going to write all this, but I really have to before I forget or change bits of it.

So me and Adam leave Mr. Pokemon’s house, and immediately his phone starts ringing – it’s Professor Elm. ((Don’t even get me started on the fact that Adam has Elm’s number and I don’t. Favouritism rite thar.)) Apparently, some dude has stolen his Chikorita from his lab and is heading towards Cherrygrove.

So me and Adam run the distance, and it’s starting to get dark now, and it’s feeling all moody, and I was getting quite excited to be honest, because I’ve never really done anything this exciting before.

Anyway, we get to Cherrygrove and see this PROPER shady looking guy with a hench Chikorita, standing near the Pokemon centre. Adam starts acting the tough man, and is all “there’s a lot riding on this battle Danika, we’ll double team him and take back Chikorita!” and makes me release my Totodile.

I don't really care what gets an evolution, just as long as the evolutions look good, unlike most of the gen 4 evos.

No way! There are so many awesome evos - Gliscor, Electivire, Yanmega, Rhyperior are some of my favourite Pokemon!

Traditionally, the even numbered gens have introduced most evolutions. Kind of seems to be "paired."

Gen I: Introduce Pokemon for Kanto
Gen II: Evolutions and prevos of Pokemon from Gen I
Gen III: Introduce a load of Pokemon for Hoenn - a few prevos but that's it really.
Gen IV: Evolutions and prevos of Pokemon from previous three gens.
Gen V: Introduce a load of Pokemon for Unova

So I can see some wicked evos and stuff from things even from Unova. Heatmor/Durant evos would be nice. I'm seeing a green fighting type to match Sock and Throh, with a baby Pokemon between them, to mirror Hitmontop and Tyrogue.

Yeah, unique type combo Pokemon would be very good fun. Electric / Grass Peacock Pokemon plz.

I would also love to see Trainer Customisation.

I'm inclined to say "more Pokemon mythology" or "bigger emphasis on mythology," but part of the appeal of places like Dragonspiral Tower and Abyssal Ruins is that they don't have any emphasis on them in the first place. I mean, if they were part of some huge plot line that explained them away, they wouldn't be nearly as interesting to explore and theorise about.

Oh and Dragon/Rock. Need something awesome looking for that one x_x Aerodactyl evo anyone? =]

I thought that Village of Dragons is north of Unova, somewhere where Upstate New York corrsponds to in real life?

In the animé it is, iirc, but someone pointed out to me that Iris tells Drayden (in the memory link feature) that things in unova are much different than in her hometown. Which implies Village of Dragons isn't in Unova.

X and Y/OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire / Norse Mythology Theme?
« on: January 10, 2013, 18:35 »
It's been discussed on other forums that Xerneas and Yveltal might be inspired by Norse mythology, so I thought I'd make a topic about that, and throw some of my own crazy thoughts out there too =P

Xerneas and Yveltal

These two are possibly based on Eikþyrnir and Veðrfölnir, who occupy Ygddrasil.

The fact that Gen VI seems to have a European vibe (hello Eiffel Tower), it suggests that the mythology ingame will draw from IRL mythology, as it has done in previous games.

Yveltal has two blue eyes, Xerneas has a red eye and a blue eye, leading the natural assumption to be that a third Pokemon will have two red eyes, and will most likely be the creature representing Z.

I think Níðhöggr would be the most likely candidate. It is a dragon (sometimes serpent) that gnaws at the base of Ygdrassil; and a serpent would make it very easy for its body shape to be a Z =P

The Entralink

It really bothered me that the bridges from the Entralink to the other worlds were destroyed in BW2, and no reason was given for this. I'm hoping this is expanded upon in XY.

In Norse mythology, Ygdrassil is the tree at the centre of creation; or at least, the embodiment of creation itself. The Entralink was, similarly, at the centre of Unova and had a particularly spiritual feel, being the entrance to the Dream World, amid other people's worlds. 

For those who have watched Thor, you might remember the "Bifrost," the rainbow cannon thing that is a much more epic version of Star Trek's transporter. In Nordic mythology, these were rainbow bridges that connected the world of the gods with the real world. The bifrost are predicted to be shattered when "the sons of Muspell" (Muspell being a fiery realm) attempt to cross it.

In BW2, the bridges are no longer accessible, and you can't travel to other people's worlds via the Entralink.

I'm hoping that this will be expanded upon in BW2; perhaps the plot events of XY will have poisoned the Entralink (which will still be accessible?) and this has caused the bridges to become inaccessible in BW2? =S

I don't think this is particularly likely, as they've not really done cross-generational plots on different regions. The closest would be Red being in Mt. Silver. And that's hardly a massive plot point.

But even so, some explanation would have been nice. =P

Anyway, if any other Norse themes are noticed, please post away! ^_^

I think they're going to include more type combinations that we haven't seen before. I'm hoping for a water and steel type.

Don't forget Empoleon! ;_; I'd like to see another water/steel though. <3

Maybe this new Dragon type Eevee everyone keeps banging on about isn't going to be a Dragon type at all- so much importance is being placed on Eevee being featured on a statue with Golurk and (I think) Palpitoad and Geodude, and what do they have in common...? 

Ooh, haven't seen Geodude; where is he?

no I don't really believe it either I just wanted to join in with the ridiculous conspiracy theories

^because they're just so much fun P=

That being said, it IS true that now types being 'physical' or 'special' don't really hold much weight since the Gen IV switch. So while dragon Eon seems pretty likely, maybe we'll be getting something else instead? Holy god would I love a flying Eon, that would be THE most gorgeous thing. Or actually a normal type evolution would be cool too, despite how plain it would be.

Ionno, they still kept with the "introduce special typed Eevees" theme, even in Gen IV, when the physical/special split was introduced.

Village of Dragons, where Iris appears, and has some location where Eevee evolves into Draconeon. ;)

X and Y/OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire / Re: Name meaning
« on: January 09, 2013, 11:43 »
I hope everyone is ready for dose of speculation and terrible connection-making..!

I think that X and Y are the ancestors of all Legendary Pokemon. I know this theory will clash with the whole "Mew is the ancestor of all" and "Arceus is the first Pokemon?!??" but Gamefreak are no strangers to the get out clause of "it's different mythologies, different regions believe different things."

X and Y are related to chromosomes, and the DNA symbol in the logo supports the idea that this is about evolution (trollol) and genetics and what not.

What has also been intriguing/bothering me are the similarities Pokemon X and Pokemon Y share with other legendary Pokemon.

Pokemon X

Dialga - colouring, markings, body shape
Arceus - equine form, the 'hilts' of its upper body and neck, the gold antlers reminiscent of Arceus' 'wheel'
Reshiram - face shape, blue eye, flowing head appendages
Virizion - equine form, tail shape

Pokemon Y

Darkrai - colouring, white ruff reminiscent of white plume, blue eye, demonic appearance
Groudon - colouring (primarily red body, black markings)
Giratina - Wing tips reminiscent of Origin form's wings.
Terrakion - Horns are pretty damn similar

You could then go even further, (which I'm prone to doing =P) and suggest that, in terms of form, both creatures tick most legendaries' boxes: the legendary birds, ho-oh and lugia all share a form in Pokemon Y, while the legendary dogs, musketeers, and elements of the pixies can be seen in Pokemon X.

This would all be dismissed easily by saying that GameFreak have probably reused some ideas, simply because there are so many Pokemon - but with the themes apparently being genetics or DNA, as suggested by the logo and the Pokemon titles, is it that much a stretch of the mind to imagine that these Pokemon are the precursors to all legendary Pokemon?

I absolutely love the Cresselia - looks like a prevo for it!

I love the Maractus one too! Maractus needs a Dawn Stone evolution from its not-yet-made-prevo!

And that Darkrai is so awesomely creepy o_o

This topic is the most fun thing everz.

Haha, this is so fun! I love the concept ^_^

I LOVE Shiftry so much xD

I actually love all of these. Galvantula's super hero, the Magcargo chicken...<3

I tried my hand at one, it's not wonderful, but I had fun doing it =3 (I also made a dex entry for it x_x; )

This Pokemon defends itself by igniting chemicals on its horn, creating a flame that burns underwater, warding off enemies.

It is, naturally, Fire/Water. It's also very small compared to all of yours o-o;
