    5. Imagine if we made it to the end of this thread without any more resets. That'd be wild.

    Wonderlocke The Avengers Initiative -- Typhlosion's X Wonderlocke -- Complete!

    Dang, losing Ebony Maw in a Psychic Gym of all places is rough. I speak from experience when I say that the Meditite line always seems to give more trouble than you'd expect. Damn you, Winstrate Vicky. And damn you too, random Anistar Gym trainer with your Medicham. It's nice that you beat...

    The Most Stubborn Team On Earth - Shado's Platinum No-New-Moves Challenge

    Wow, I figured Dragon Rage would be pretty decent, but I didn't think it would shred through Mismagius the way it did. Go Ishmael!

    2. Honestly, I'm kinda proud we even got it to 28 last time.

    Nuzlocke Calaf's Pokemon SoulSilver Chesslocke -- Part 11: The Pokemon League

    @Typhlosion: Yeah, Tycoon :persian: definitely gave me a scare there. I guess it's nice to see the coin flip turn out my way for once lol. As for why I wanted to use Hitmontop, the main reason behind it is that the role of Knight is not an easy one to fill. Hitmontop can have Technician for his...

    The Most Stubborn Team On Earth - Shado's Platinum No-New-Moves Challenge

    The fight against Jupiter in Eterna City is probably my least favorite fight to do on a challenge run across the entire series, so I'm glad to see that you beat her on your first attempt. Bronzor missing Hypnosis is definitely some bad luck, but Skuntank hitting Poison Gas may have been a...

    Wonderlocke The Avengers Initiative -- Typhlosion's X Wonderlocke -- Complete!

    Can we just take a moment to acknowledge how diabolical it is to give Swanna Ice Beam in a Sky Battle? Literally 99% of the Pokemon able to fight in that battle are weak to it. That being said, to have two Pokemon be quad weak to it is really, really bad luck. The game hasn't been treating you...

    The Most Stubborn Team On Earth - Shado's Platinum No-New-Moves Challenge

    This is such an interesting concept! So far, you seem to be breezing through, but I'm curious to see how hard this challenge will get. Best of luck!

    Gen 8 OU Banded Ace With a Balanced Breakfast

    This looks like an interesting team, I might give it a spin on the ladder myself tonight! I could definitely see it putting in a lot of work, but I do think Zeraora and Hippowdon could be problematic for it, as you mentioned as well. Zeraora often carries Close Combat, which means Excadrill...

    Nuzlocke Calaf's Pokemon SoulSilver Chesslocke -- Part 11: The Pokemon League

    Welcome back, one and all! After we beat Clair in the previous update, it's time to head for the Pokemon League. Before we do that though, we have some errands to run first. Let's get into it! ___ The Kimono Girls are convinced that I am the guy they need to summon Lugia and so, they give me...

    Wonderlocke The Avengers Initiative -- Typhlosion's X Wonderlocke -- Complete!

    I definitely think you made the right call, evolving Cassie Lang when you did. The boost in stats can be an absolute lifesaver in Lockes. Also, I call your Ramos for 'least memorable Gym Leader' and raise you one Juan. Either way, after a rough patch, you seem to be back in business...

    Nuzlocke Calaf's Pokemon SoulSilver Chesslocke -- Part 11: The Pokemon League

    @Typhlosion: Yeah, Explosion is an awful move in Nuzlockes and HG/SS have no shortage of it with all the Koffing-wielding Team Rocket Grunts running about. If only Olive :politoed: had had Damp instead of Water Absorb... Losing Beryl :graveler: has definitely been... less than ideal, as she was...

    Bucs’ Boroughs - Pendraflare’s White 2 Pirate Golden Age Time Warp Challenge [Clay-Mation!]

    I've finally had time to catch up on this challenge and I've been enjoying reading along so far! Those were some intense battles, dang! I like how you switch around team members between Gyms, despite this not being a Nuzlocke challenge. In my experience, that really helps to keep things fresh...

    Wonderlocke The Avengers Initiative -- Typhlosion's X Wonderlocke -- Complete!

    Oof, having three losses back to back like that is brutal. You did a good job rebuilding though, the team is looking stronger than ever before! Also, on the topic of 'Hariyama confessions': as a kid playing through the gen 3 games, I always thought that line between Hariyama's head and torso...

    Nuzlocke Calaf's Pokemon SoulSilver Chesslocke -- Part 11: The Pokemon League

    @Typhlosion: Thanks! It was a long shot for sure, but I'm glad it worked out! This update, we'll be trying the same trick once more. Will it work again? Let's find out! ___ Sigh, poor Hippolyte :machop:. I guess the risky promotion strategies were bound to go south sometime. It's a shame...

    Tournament Marriland Draft League Season 3

    I had a lot of fun this season! I do agree with Ashley's suggestion of making the trade cutoff happen earlier in the season next time, but that's the only improvement I could think of! Thanks for hosting Jarrod, you did a great job!

    Nuzlocke Calaf's Pokemon SoulSilver Chesslocke -- Part 11: The Pokemon League

    @Typhlosion: Yeah, that just about sums up my initial reaction as well.. :cryingazurill: I considered promoting Olive against Pryce, but I doubt she'd be able to break through his Rest Dewgong :dewgong:, so I thought of another plan instead. Let's just say it should all become clear soon...
