• Smash Camp 2020

    Smash Camp, an event that has run for twelve years, has started once again! Everyone who joins is separated into one of four cabins where you'll compete to earn points through various activities, such as flash games, tournaments, and other events. At the end of camp, the totals will be finalized, and the cabin with the most total points wins. It's an awesome way to have fun with your friends while meeting new people in the process, and is open to anyone, not just members of the Marriland Forums!

    Pre-Camp has officially started, with Camp itself beginning on Monday. It will be taking place exclusively on the Smash Camp Discord, which you may join by clicking here. If you have any questions, feel free to join the server and ask - we hope to see you there!

Hello all! I reset my Alpha Sapphire game this morning and decided to start a Nuzlocke. I love how this game looks and plays. It's so smooth. The DexNav is one of the best features out there, too.

The standard Nuzlocke rules will apply, with Dupes Clause and Shiny Clause, plus these three additional rules:
  • No using healing items in battles
  • Changing the battle style to "Set"
  • Level limit (14, 16, 21, 28, 30, 35, 45, 46; 52, 53, 54, 55, 59)

For this playthrough, I'll be using a nicknaming theme of Marriland users! Don't take the nicknames personally!
With regards to the DexNav, if I haven't gotten my first encounter before something shows up on the DexNav, I'll use the DexNav instead. If I don't like the Pokemon, too bad.

Update links:
Update 1: Typhlosion already?!


Update 1: Typhlosion already?!
To start off, I named myself Ruby and ended up with Torchic :torchic: since my Trainer ID ended in a 9. Pretty nice start. I nicknamed my Torchic Typhlosion. That won't get confusing at all... Funny thing, I spoke to my mother before leaving Littleroot Town and she didn't really seem to care about my journey. When I actually walked out of the town she suddenly did care. Which is it?!

After all the beginning stuff, I caught a Zigzagoon :zigzagoon: with the DexNav and named it smoky. The only problem is that its first move is Charm, meaning it doesn't have tackle and won't get an attacking move until level 11. RIP.

At Petalburg I meet up with my dad and lectures me about becoming a good Trainer and then helps out another child, Wally. I guess I'm not the favourite. Wally then shows me how to catch a Ralts despite me already having a caught a Pokemon.

In Route 104 I catch a Wurmple :wurmple: and name her Kat. Watch this space and see if Kat is actually useful or not. And then right after that, I see a Wingull with the DexNav, oh boy. Kat better be really strong to make up for me missing one of my favourite Hoenn Pokemon.

So I backtracked and got Kat all the way to level 7 and she evolved into :silcoon: Silcoon! I guess this is fake Kat, if that's the case. :pensiveazurill:

Into Petalburg Woods and I catch franciscosta the Taillow :taillow:! Since I used the DexNav, he has Roost! But no attacking moves... The Team Aqua grunt was easy to beat, though Typhlosion is getting really close to the level limit.

Just outside the Woods on Route 104, a Youngster gives me the TM for Echoed Voice. Finally, smoky and franciscosta will have attacking moves!

Fast-forward to Route 116 and my first non-duplicate encounter is Merfairy the Whismur :whismur:! I'm a little disappointed since now I can't catch a Pokemon in Rusturf Tunnel. And then on Route 116, a Marill starts to spam Rollout and Merfairy gets absolutely destroyed, press F to pay respects. I was super worried that the Nuzlocke would be over since I had 3/5 Pokemon weak to Rock. Thankfully the Marill started to use every other move in its arsenal when I sent out Typhlosion.

At least Kat evolved into Beautifly :beautifly:!

And that's it for the first update. Rather short, already sombre. Merfairy will never be forgotten!

Hm, ORAS are known for being easy but the restrictions might make it more interesting. RIP Merfairy tho, Whismur can be really helpful in these games with its coverage. ;_;

But yeah it's funny how your own dad favors this visitor over his own kid.
