So my last blog was about a Nuzlocke. I started it but then I have just become bored with it; beating Cheren will be an absolute drag and most likely result in failure. Basically, I have no enthusiasm for it right now. So I've decided I'm going to do another mono-run of a game. Last one I did was all Grass in HG over a year ago. I really want to try another one. I've decided on mono-Ground this time, because it has quite a nice variety and Ground is generally an interesting type.
Last Nuzlocke I did was HG a few years back (I posted a few blogs about it iirc). I started a Platinum one but got bored and then months later just restarted. This time, I think I'm going to try a White 2 Challenge mode Nuzlocke. The larger dex is appealing to me. Poison not damaging outside of battle is probably going to make it a whole lot easier, because Poison won't mean a death this time. Which is a shame, because it takes a little of the challenge away.
The rules I'll be using
Here's me battling @Iteru; in a random battle. Skiploom is so pro it ain't even scared tho. http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/randombattle-37196016
Really, Pokemon? I mean, really? Watchogs cooking food? Rodents cooking the food? I have to question the health and safety in the Pokemon world even more now. No wonder there's so many doctors and nurses just hanging around Unova, the place has deathtrap gyms and a blatant disregard for hygiene.
I dug out my cart earlier and I'm replaying it. But because Platinum has a good selection in its regional dex I'm finding it hard to choose. So i'm looking for any suggestions to what I should try out on my team.
