Beautifly should be able to help you out quite nicely against Brawly

Just read though all this, keep up the work. Was interesting to read your platinum run. I'm currently nuzlocking Diamond but couldn't be bothered writing it out so it's interesting to see the differences in our teams, especially early on.
I've only just beat the second gym, no deaths yet and my team is
Prinplup
Golbat
Roselia
Bibarel
Luxio
Staravia
DPP had some crazy diversity for available Pokemon. Made that run a ton of fun because I never knew what I was going to get. Good luck on the rest of your Diamond run, and thanks for taking the time to read. :)

Yeah! I actually did some grinding in granite Cave and route 106 to get Beautifly up to level and get something else I got lucky with leveled up(no spoilers, about to take on Brawlys gym, should have an update this morning!).

Dewford Gym Update

I had some great luck in Granite Cave, when the first Pokemon to appear was a 15% Abra, and I caught it with my first throw great ball. I also added a Magikarp to my team in Dewford town. After doing some leveling on Route 106 and Granite Cave to evolve Abra, I took on Brawly. Kadabra rolled through the entire gym, OHKO'ing everything with Confusion. On to the next.

Mauville Gym Update

This gym ended up being a little tougher than the last couple for me. I didn't have anything super effective for electric, and only rock smash on Mightyena for his steel types. After eating a few volt switches and using a few super potions I took down the Voltorb/Magneton volt switch duo with no losses.

Lavaridge/Petalburg Gym Update

I decided to do these two together because they are back to back and absolutely nothing happened in the 1min between gyms.

Finally rounding out my party (assuming I don't take any losses, which is always the goal). I picked up a Numel and a Magnemite, which went straight into the lineup. It was a long road from Mauville, I forgot that you had several routes, encounters with team magma in meteor Falls AND Mt. Chimney, and multiple towns before getting to the next gym. It gave me plenty of time to work on leveling up Numel, and Magnemite (once I got a Honey and went back to route 110 for it). My newly caught and leveled Numel rolled through Flannery and her gym with Earth Power and a Soft Sand equipped. Still no deaths this run!

After the gym I travelled with May over to Petalburg to take on Norman. I continued using Numel for the trainers to get it some more exp, but swapped to Alakazam for Norman. I one shotted his first Slaking and Vigoroth, but had a bit of a scare with the second when it barely lived and then crit with a feint attack that hit like a truck. Alakazam lived with 2hp, but not before I almost threw my DS. Finished him off still maintaining my 0 losses. My next goal is going to be getting Magnemite leveled and evolved as I move on to the next gym.

I'm surprised Alakazam managed to live through that attack. 2 HP though, damn...

Fortree Gym Update

After putting in the time to level Magnemite/Magneton, I destroyed the Fortree gym and Winona. I one shotted everything in here with Charge Beam except for her sturdy Skarmory (who used spikes first turn). Another easy win, and I'm still riding 0 losses as I collect my 6th badge.

Mossdeep Gym Update

Sorry for the late update. I've been doing some home remodeling, and haven't had much time to play.

Unfortunately I lost Mightyena to one of the trainers in the gym. Took a high jump kick from a medicham(oof). Other than that the gym was smooth. I took on Tate and Liza with Gyarados and Magneton in the lead, and didn't need to swap out. Pretty bummed to lose Mightyena, I was hoping this might be my first perfect Nuzlocke.. not this time though.

You got really far before death! I usually can't get my starter, let alone everyone, to the 7th gym.

Sootopolis Gym Update

Busy week, so I didn't have much time to play until today.

I easily made my way through the Seafloor Cavern, and the Cave of Origins, and moved on to the Sootopolis Gym. Sceptile rolled through this lovely all water gym with no problem, so now I have to get ready for the E4(and still find a replacement for the Mightyena I lost. Hopefully I can update sooner than the last!

I'm still sad you lost Mightyena. That's one of my favourite early game mons. Hope you'll find a good replacement soon!

I actually back tracked before heading to victory road and caught a Bagon in Meteor Falls! So hopefully I make it through victory road with no more losses now. 😜

Omega Ruby E4 Update

I went in a little bit underleveled, but I knew I had pretty good coverage for everything. It started out pretty well. I swept Sidney with my newly leveled Salamence that I had put brick break on. Next Alkazam pretty easily swept Phoebes team. For Glacia I started with Camerupt, but swapped to Salamence when they threw up light screen. It went pretty well until her last Pokemon, Walrein, who dropped a blizzard on Salamence after I didn't OHKO, I lost my Salamence here. For Drake I swept with Alakazam again using dazzling gleam to take down his dragons. And finally Steven.. As was the trend I swept with Alkazam. I set up on Skarmory with charge beam and his sturdy/full restore spam. That set me up to OHKO everything with psychic, except Metagross who I took down with a shadow ball. And that ended my Omega Ruby run, with two deaths (RIP Mightyena and Salamence). On to USUM!

MVP: It was definitely Alakazam for this run. I threw him in anytime it was tight or I didn't know what to use, and he mopped the floor with the E4 to wrap up the game.

Salamence - Level 51
Alakazam - Level 58
Gyarados - Level 56
Sceptile - Level 56
Camerupt - Level 57
Magnezone - Level 56

Poor Salamence! Although, only two deaths in a single run is pretty good. Congrats on finishing OR! Good luck with USUM!

An Auspicious Start to an Ultra Moon Adventure..

Havent done much yet.. I rolled Popplio for my starter, and payed the smackdown on Hau.. my main purpose for this post was the intro for this run and details for how I'll be doing it. I'll be posting updates after each trial and captain. Also, I'll have a catch opportunity in each area (so I'll be able to Make 3 catches on route 1.. northern area, southern area, and the trainer school.). I will ignore the forced Pikipek as first catch as well. Hopefully it goes well!
