I feel like my heart has been ripped from my chest.

I just lost three of my teammates (plus one slave) to Koga on my Leaf Green Nuzlocke. You know, it's one thing to just catch a Pokemon and then lose it five battles later, but these Pokemon were both 40 and 38 and have saved my butt more times I can count. Koga's Pokemon were just... ruthless. Maybe I should have grinded and have at least five levels above them than one or two, but some part of my mind thinks it wouldn't have made a difference. I did not have a single move that would beat Poison, after all.
- Evan the Kingler: Self-destruct casualty by Koffing. I used Leer instead of Strength, Stomp, or Surf, thinking I could have conned Koga out of a Hyper Potion that he wouldn't be able to use against his tougher Pokemon later on. I was wrong, and Evan paid for it.
- Celest the Pidgeot: I used Fly about twice on the second Koffing, but Poison and Sludge when I switched her back in after another member got Poisoned was too much.
- Fabian the Weepinbell: I used Sleepowder against his Wheezing, but then Koga Hyper Potioned. Sleepowder missed, and two Sludges was all it took.
- Fabian II the Bellsprout: Basically he was sacrificed in order to cure Poison from the last surviving team members.
Some of the information may be inaccurate. After Evan went down, I was too shocked and nervous to keep on documenting the battle.
At the end, Miles the Charizard took the Wheezing down after Antidote + Hyper Potion + Flamethrower vs. Koga's Hyper Potions + Wheezing's Sludge. So only Miles and Sam the Raticate survived, both Poisoned and in the yellow by the end. This may sound shallow, but I am SO glad Sam survived; at one point, I'm sure I sent in Celest over him because I didn't want Sam to fall instead. I mean, I've beaten Leaf Green with just a Pidgeot before. Fabian was getting so damn annoying leveling up with just Vine Whip on him, and Evan, though I raised him from Lv. 16, didn't have that much of a bond with me because I basically just grinded him before this gym. Don't get me wrong; he was so awesome with his moves and Hyper Cutter, but Sam was with me since the first gym. I have never used a Raticate on my team, ever. He was always, ALWAYS, second-in-command. His loss would have been as devastating as Miles'.
I'm not sure if I want to keep documenting this and make my serious Nuzlocke comic; the character I have planned would probably jump off a bridge after so many deaths in one battle. Also, I don't want the comic to concentrate on the deaths but on my human character and the plot I have planned. I'll probably decide after I finish this run, if I succeed at all. After all this, I'm really interested how my team will shape up. Time to get some Pokemon from the Box and grind like hell.
