Revenge and the Ball Guy: Pinkie’s First Randomiser Nuzlocke Journal Part 2

Hello again Island Guests it is time for a second instalment of my Pokémon Randomiser Nuzlocke! In the first part you could read about trainer Pinkie failing and being reborn into a slightly differently new life! Very much aware of what happend she decided to pursue her career as a Pokemon Trainer once again! Today we begin the story of her second cycle! For Part 1 click here!

About the Nuzlocke!

Having learned from my  Pokémon Typing series I have made a neat little info chart showing the rules of my Nuzlocke! If for some reason you did not read part 1 and started to read here, let me explain what a Nuzlocke is once more. A Nuzlocke is way of playing trough Pokémon with a series of self imposed rules. You can only capture the first pokémon you find per route and must always nickname them. Then once a pokémon faints in battle it is considered dead and you can no longer use it.  For more specific rules please read the picture.

Rules!

In the last part we started our journey with a Vigoroth, we caught a Gorebyss, a Quagsire a Misdreavous a Snubull and a Cleffa.. however upon challenging Falkner we sound out his ace was an slightly over leveled Registeel! My team was quickly killed after that. So by the rules of the Nuzlocke the game was re-randomised.  Numbers of deaths so far…6!  Number of badges 0! As well as my total progres! Let’s see if we can get at least a bit further this time. As we read this in character journal of my sweet trainer girl.

This happend last time! He was so mean!

Getting Luci!

Day 1 again.. maybe it’s day 2.. for me it is day 2 at least so let’s call it day 2.  Ethan was rubbing his Marill in my face again… I had lived through this already. I would not let him do more of that  gloating he did before… So I immediately walked into Professor Elm’s lab! I wanted to get my Vigoroth and get going..but after he told me about the amazing discovery  Mister Pokémon made I got to select my Pokéball. In the same slot Vigorth used to be in was now a Feebas! That is pretty worthless!  In the second slot was a Nincada.. I would not get far with that… yet in the third slot was an Espeon! I knew it would take a long while for it to get a note-worthy move but hey at least it is something right?! So I took that on an adventure with me and him Kuro…but  somehow when Professor Elm asked me if I was sure about that name I said no.. I don’t know why.. It’s like that stupid owl I once encountered when I got reincarnated as this forest boy! He kept talking and then he asked me if I got all that. I somehow ended up saying no!  In the end Espeon did not end up listening to a nickname!  Luckily  I would be able to nickname it once we reached Goldenrod City.

It ended better for Espeon than it did for the owl!

Not Kuro the Espeon had a lot more trouble facing off against opponents than Raist ever did..where Eevee starts out with tackle.. and Espeon is a very special attacker.. he could not do much for me… I would have to train a lot with him. So we worked our way up to Mister Pokémon and Professor Oak like we did last time. I had to train Espeon up to level 10 to even be functional before then.. knowing I would face Indigo on my way back!  Espeon was level 12 by the time I encountered my rival and surprisingly was able to take down my Rival fairly quickly. In this lifetime the rival was blonde though and not red! That is so funny because last life I really regretted that he was red.. it felt like he should have been blonde! Is the world becoming more adapted to my wants and needs? Regardless, we beat him and we delivered the Pokémon Egg to its original destination and I was now also free to keep Espeon! Even though I still missed Raist.  I got some pokéballs and knew that now we were playing serious! 

This lifetime, Indigo rocked the Edgy Ikea Employee Style

This time however with Espeon being so physically weak, we had it much easier to catch Pokémon. On the first route I managed to catch a Lucario! Which is pretty amazing! He knew Metal Claw and I decided to name it MK666. After a shy coconut I once met! On route 46 I subsequently managed to catch a Larvitar which I named Eggsammy.. because Eggsandwich as a name  would not fit! I then realised how much. Still Dark Rock, Fighting Steel and Psychic seemed like a good start. Then the old man incident happened of course, but this time I was prepared not to scare me!  On the next route I missed capturing a Mareep due to an unfortunate crit from MK666. Just as I was kinda upset because I love Mareep and an electric type  would be a nice addition to my team.. I pummeled Youngster Joey’s team in the ground! Lucario was so good! Eggsammy quickly learned to bite and became rather solid as well.  My grumpiness disappeared as I managed to snag a Lanturn as my next friend on Route 31! I love Lanturn. It is so cute!  My typings were amazing plus these were all pretty good Pokémon! Would this be my moment in the sun?!

My team before reaching Violet City!

The Funeral and a Victory

In a nearby cave I was even able to catch a Sableye, a ghost dark type pokémon which at this point in time had no defensive weaknesses and several immunities.  That means it could be a pretty good ally for our Nuzlocke adventure. He would be safe to swap into every time while I heal up my team.. a tank or shield of sorts. Since it has such a weird head shape that looks like a sci-fi robot or a jojo’s stand I decided to name it Scott. Now Scott made me realise I was in a bit of trouble. I had 5 really good Pokémon..and they were all under leveled. So I would already have to grind!  I hate grinding! So me and my pokémon dove into the tall grass, rolling around until we encountered a pokémon and we killed it. I was worried about how little XP I got .. until I suddenly realised that Scott leveled up without me training!  Upon closer inspection I found out he had an EXP share randomised onto him! Neat! So we went into some heavy training. This training nearly killed Scott and EggSammy once but I managed to pull through! With everyone at level 10 at least it was time to rechallenge sprout tower.

Taking a new friend to face an old challenge!

When I came around to that same guy who killed Heather last time.. things began falling apart. MK666 had no fighting move yet and our opponent send out a Snorlax.. which his high powered compared to most of my team. I should have send in Scott.. but I figured I would send Espeon in first.. use sand attack to weaken his accuracy… then Snorlax bit Espeon’s head off! Critical!   No amount of potions could save Espeon from having it’s head bit off.. so i already had my first death.  Scott had no means to hit the Snorlax and Lucario had no move to effectively counter him. So I had to develop a technique  of dealing damage, switching  Scott, healing my pokémon.. confuse it with scott and then swap into Lucario again hoping that Snorlax would hit itself in confusion! It brought us a victory.. but the nameless Espeon was dead. So I digitised it and put it in a random box in the computer.

I tried throwing a revive at it..but it did not work!

From beating Snorlax Mk666 however, he had learned Force Palm! With  Metal Claw and Force Palm Lucario was a tough cookie!  I knew we had a pretty good shot at the gym this time around. After catching a few more pokemon not viable for the team right now, such as poliwhirl, voltorb and budew my highest monster was at level 12 and I knew Falkner’s ace would be at about 14. So I took MK666 and leveled it to 14 at the gym trainers. However when the leader came up he only had a Mismagius and a Foretress, both got taken down by Eggsammy! My first badge had been won! I have gotten my revenge.

Victory over the first gym, eating a ghost a tossing rocks at a bug!

So finally we could venture on! I found one of the plates of god in some bushes nearby! One of the 17 plates representing Arceus was sitting there in the tall grass guarded by a bug keeper guy who liked to be called Dancer Cynthia. After dealing with Cynthia I collected the plate and noticed it was the Splash plate which would power up Pix , Bubble attack! So now my dolphin was equipped with a godly Relic, when we had to make a trek past some Fisherman who likes to be called Burglars! I told them ” Swiper, No Swiping ” and they told me they aren’t criminals like those Lass people robbing mansions! They are Burglars.. people who fish up pokemon on their boat and sell them for food! ‘So you are ‘Fisherman’ I asked and they said no, Fisherman guard locations after dark… this world is weird.

In Randomised Johto everyone has an identity crisis

Chasing Tail

One of the burglars was scary, normally in the game he would have five magikarp including one overpowered one..but after randomisation that turned into a level 16 gengar. Pix came in to paralyse it with a thunder wave and Eggsammy finished it off! Scott took down the weaker ones and got in some good levels! When we had finished killing every pokemon that belonged to a train I scored like three phone numbers of people wanting to see me again. Mom then kept calling as well..saying she bought me berries with my price money! Mom, what mailman will meet me at a pokemart to hand me 5 berries?

I wonder if this is why dad left us?

Near a cave I had to traverse through to get go Azalea city I was approached by a guy trying to sell me a Slowpoke tail for a million dollars. He said it was a delicacy! I told him even if that is true I could get a 50.000 pokeballs for that money and Slowpokes catch rate isn’t all THAT hard. Tails grow back and if one died in battle I could eat it whole! He got angry but told me that I would find it hard to find Slowpoke with a tail soon enough and I would regret it. I am a ten year old, I don’t want to know my burger was once a Miltank! So don’t make me recognise pink hippo tail either.

What are you buyin?

The trek to the cave was uneventful! I heard stories about caves being filled with Zubat but this cave was filled with Lapras and unfortunately with Beedrill! I caught one as my first encounter but mostly so the scary thing went away! The rest of the cave was mostly Lucario strangeling Lapras ..about 5 or 6 and Eggsammy tossing rocks at Beedrill. I get vert seasick from riding anything and I am terrifed of wasps do thid wasn’t a good place for me! Three firebreathers who like to be called birdkeepers must have heard my screams of terror as they mourned their teams. Pix and MK666 took good care of them.

Beedrill are not bees! They are wasps! I hate wasps!

When I finally reached the end of the cave I encountered a big husky bearded person with an alpine hat. Picknicker Sally was no match for my team that grew in power. Pix learned to flail..which is a good move when she is at low hp..but since this is a Nuzlocke.. all she could effectively do in terms of offence was blow bubbles empowered by god. A man with a black shirt and unfashionable cap told me I could not go into the well. I assume his name was Robby or something as his shirt featured a big red R. I walked into town and stocked up on pokeballs and some potions trying to access the second gym.. without much success.

So I figured I would visit Kurt the pokeball master! He could make me Pink Pokeballs! He told me I had to help him rescue Slowpokes from the well first! What’s up with all these people wanting to go inside a well! If there are slowpokes swimming in that well I doubt the water will taste very fresh! I imagine slowpokes taking big dumps in that water..regardless Kurt had already ran out by the time I finished that train of thought and I really wanted pink pokeballs and Scott could use a few more battles before the next gym…so I went in the well. There I found Kurt, a 60 year old man or so who fell three stories down. I assumed he was dead but he then told me, team rocket is inside, I hurt my back go in and face them.

He is the hero Azalea Town needs!

Did he just fake his injuries not to fight against criminals or is he super sturdy? I asked if I should not get help first.. maybe the well could flood and we would drown! He told me he should be up and about by the time I took down their leader! So I may just be 10 years old…but that to me sounds like he is faking..but well..pink pokeballs and all. So I thanked him for getting me this far and cracked my knuckles! Finally I was going to kill some Pokemon of people who really deserved it.

What if Ash Started With Eevee (Part 2)

Hiya my little monsters!  Happy wednesday! Five weeks ago we started this blog, just like four weeks ago Ash started his journey through Kanto again. This time however he did not get a Pikachu, he got a very timid Eevee. We saw Ash struggle with his cowardly Pokémon as both fell in battle against some spearow. Revived by Ho-Oh’s  sacred ash they caught the attention of three onlookers from the sky as Ash held a rainbow feather he found on his person. Accompanied by Misty they decided to head for a Pokémon Center to check out if Eevee is and Ash are alright, even though they don’t seem to have any injuries at all. You can brush up on part 1 by clicking here.

Chapter 6: A Run-In with the law

Ash and Misty are walking towards Viridian City when they hear an announcement through a city wide PA speaker. ‘Attention! A group of mysterious strangers have been spotted. They are allegedly pokémon thieves, everyone be on the look-out for  strangers.’ The message ends when suddenly a dapper looking woman runs towards the group. ‘Hey you Halt’ The woman has shoulder length hair which fans out all across her shoulders, The hair is a rather unique turquoise like colour. Wearing a short skirt police outfit that is mostly indigo coloured with a large cyan triangle shape following her chest line. Donned with Red and golden details the outfit is quite official looking as she looks at Ash and Misty sternly.
“You two what is your business here in the city’ the woman says. Misty takes the lead being a bit more familiar in the environment. ‘My name is Misty Waterflower from Cerulean City and this is Ash Ketchum from Pallet Town, Eevee and Ash got attacked by a group of Spearow and we want to have them checked out at the Center.’  the policewoman frowns. ‘Eevee doesn’t look injured at all nor does that boy..though his clothes are tattered.. please follow me inside the police station for interrogation.. my name is officer Jenny’ Jenny waves the couple to follow her inside a small round building.

While Ash and Misty take a seat Eevee hops onto Ash’s head.  “Why isn’t Eevee inside it’s pokéball? You aren’t those pokémon thieves everyone is talking about would you?’ Ash looks startled and insulted. ‘No I would never steal a pokémon, and Eevee doesn’t want to be in his pokéball’he takes out the pokéball to demonstrate. Eevee flees at the sight of the pokéball, crawling under officer Jenny’s desk looking at her a bit defiantly for causing this traumatic situation.  Jenny chuckles a bit at this warming up to the strangers a bit. ‘Well why are you covered in ash Ash? How are your clothes so damaged but you don’t have a single bruise?’
Ash looks to the floor ‘I don’t know… I felt so much pain… than everything went black.. I thought I was going to die but then I just woke up with this’ Ash shows the officer his rainbow feather who looks intrigued. ‘Well I need to see some ID and then you can be on your way for now!’. Jenny smiles , her years as an officer has shown her to judge characters properly and these two are definitely no criminals, but very weird. ‘I don’t have any ID” Ash says embarrassed. Jenny frowns once more ‘Well.. that’s gonna give some trouble’ From above… they can suddenly hear some laughter as two Pokéballs fall through the little skylight in the police building. A dandy male voice speaks ‘and make it double’ just as the pokéballs burst open. 

Chapter 7: Koffing up!

From  one of the pokeball a small purple rattlesnake , with yellow rattles on its tail and equally yellow eyes. Justb below it’s head it’s purple scales transition into a collar shaped yellow scale, before returning to purple through the rest of the body emerges. Dashing forward it destroys Jenny’s computer and sends her back onto a wall. A female icy voice from above seems to command it. “Ekans Attack’

From the second  pokéball a spherical pokémon appears. Covered with geyser like protrusions that release a mustard coloured gas it’s body is about as purple as the snakes. A big dopey grin rests on it’s large eyes are fixated on Ash. A skull and crossbone on it’s lower body reveal that the mustard coloured gas is most likely poisonous A dandy voice from above confirms this when he shouts “Koffing use Poison Gas’. The orb begins to fill the room with a noxious gas.

‘Everyone outside’ Jenny shouts while finding the way to the exit herself. As they make their way outside  coughing and dazed from the gas they are cut off by two figures sliding down a rope from their balloon. Alongide a cat Pokémon. They begin to do some sort of rhyme.

To protect the world from devastation

To unite the people within our nation

To Denounce the evils of truth and love.

To extend our reach to the stars above

Jessie!

James

Team Rocket blasts off at the speed of light!

Surrender now or begin to fight

Meowth! That’s right!

‘So you are the Pokémon Thieves’ Jenny says. “Meowth That’s Right’ is her answer. The man who introduced himself as James looks at Ash and Eevee. ‘We have come for that boys Eevee and that mysterious item that made them rise from the dead’ ‘We died?” Ash asks. ‘Meowth! That’s Right’ would once more be the answer. ‘Well I am not handing you my Eevee’ Ash says while stepping in front of his pokémon. The crimson haired woman laughs  and says ‘We do not expect you to give it to use twerp so we will just take it instead’ Her white short top features the letter R quite prominently as she waves her black gloved hand towards the boy and commands her Ekans to attack him. Jenny wanting to intervene is cut off by another cloud of poison gas. The man commanding the koffing wears a white overall with the same letter R. His hair is shoulder length and the most glossy and soft you have ever seen. It’s tinted in a purplish blue. As Ash flinches in front of Eevee the little pokémon runs between it’s owners legs and tackles the Ekans keeping it away from Ash.  James immediately sends Koffing in with another cloud of poisonous smoke enveloping the pair. Ash and Eevee begins coughing as their sight is blurring. They would have to finish this fight fast! 

Chapter 8: Phone Home

With Ash and Eevee struggling for breath they were saved by the young tomboyish companion that had escorted them into town ‘Staryu..blow that smoke away using your rapid spin’’ Misty skilfully commanded her brownish sea star pokémon donned with a red gem in the middle. set in a golden ornate circle. The Starfish began to rapidly spin around creating a big gust of wind that send back the noxious clouds to the two criminals and their pokémon. Jenny who was quick on her feet used this moment  call for her growlithe. An adorable yet intimidating fire tiger dog. ‘Growlithe ignite that gas with your ember’ The orange pup obeyed and fired a little bolt of fire towards Koffing smoke which ignited and caused a large explosion blasting the criminals away from them.. as well as making them hit the wall of the police station. When the smoke cleared, the criminals were gone.. shouting from their balloon in the sky. ‘We will get that revived Eevee and that item the next time.. just you wait’ Then their ballon ruptured making Team Rocket fly away. 

‘Is everyone okay’ Jenny asked while checking around. ‘Yes we are unharmed’ Ash said with Eevee sitting on his head again. ‘Staryu and I are fine as well’ Misty added.  Jenny looking at the boy and his eevee scratched her head. ‘What did they mean when they said you had risen from the dead’ Jenny asks Ash. ‘I do not know Officer Jenny I just woke up covered in ash and with this feather in my hair’ the ten year old boy showed the rainbow feather again. A silence descended across the group with  this mystery. Had Ash and Eevee indeed died Ash knew those criminals were speaking the truth somehow, he remembered his life slipping away when those spearows attacked but he was too scared to admit it. Maybe he was a zombie?
Maybe he was a vampire?

A bonk on the head brought him back to the real world. Ash I asked , could you not call the professor that send you  on your journey for advise’ Misty said while twisting her knuckles on his cranium. “Ooouucch, y–y-eah I can ask.. please stop that’ Ash said while making the call using a payphone Jenny guided him too.  The phones here having pictures displayed the greyed pokémon professor. “Ah Ash I was just about to call you… or try to see if you have arrived in the Pokémon center with all the other trainers having arrived hours ago I began to worry’  Ash, kinda upset he was last, frowned. ‘You were really worried about me?’ he asked. Samuel Oak nodded. ‘I bet my grandson 1 million poké that you would arrive before the end of the day with at least one pokémon’.  Gary said you’d probably arrive dead and without any pokémon caught. Ash stomach twisted. ‘Well professor I got something to tell you’. Oak took the following conversation really well for someone who just lost a million especially when Ash showed him the feather.

Chapter 9:  Sacred Secrets
‘Magnificent, A pokémon  with the power to revive the dead? First hand experience? You must allow me to examine you two. I shall not ask you to come back.. don’t be afraid… why don’t we meet at the Pewter city museum, they have a lot of scientific tools I could use and we might shed some light on what pokémon this could be with their historians as well .. . oh and Ash.. do not tell Delia you died, she would try to make you come home, but you my boy have discovered something truly amazing, I mean you are the first trainer ever to die on route one… but to return from the dead is something truly spectacular’  Professor Oak sounded giddy and excited, not even noticing he hurt Ash’s feelings by mentioning how he died on route 1. However Ash sat through this , he wanted to know what happened himself. Even with all the events of the day he felt energetic and eager to set out. ‘Oh Ash I will send you some money for a new outfit.. don’t clean this one of any further I want samples from that strange dust, replace your clothes.. the girl can help you please let Officer Jenny seal your old clothes in an evidence bag.’ After a bit of smalltalk the phone call concluded with Misty seeming very eager to go shop. ‘Come on Ash it will be fun! It’s kinda like a date when you think about it?!’ Ash blushed a bit for  ‘I- I don’t date girls I am going to be a Pokémon Master’ he retorted much to Misty’s bemusement.

‘I was only kidding but come one it will be fun and your old clothes are ruined anyway so we might as well!’ Ash looked at his clothes who were more rags than anything else right now and nodded. He could not face his mother’s phone call like this so he would have to shop anyway. Misty, Ash and Eevee thanked Jenny and left while Jenny sealed the old outfit away. Ash still had some spare pants and shirts but his cap and jacket were gone. As the three explored the mall in Viridian City Misty spotted a new outfit for ash. A crimson/red jacket with a matching cap with a white arch on the top of the headwear.  Using the money that was left they also bought him a slightly larger backpack.. yellow instead of the green one. ‘This is a much more slimming look’ Misty smiled at Ash and took a selfie with her new project in the background.

‘Say how about I help you and your Pokémon get through the forest and to pewter city? ‘ she asked with a slight blush when the evening was nearing its end. ‘I have to go that way myself anyway and with those horrible criminals after you and your poor pokémon skills you could use someone who is actually capable. ‘ Misty said this half jokingly half seriously concerned about Ssh his Pokémon and boy himself as well. He had a good heart but was wildly incompetent. Ash objected against being called weak. ‘I know you are not weak Ash but you know very little of Pokémon and with two criminals after you.. including three Pokémon, you’d always be outnumbered. You may be a very important person now and I can not allow you to fall into the hands of those criminals’ Misty said. “Now how about we get some ice cream and head to the pokémon center to rest for the night?’ Misty proposed. ‘We can sleep in Pokémon Centers?’ Ash asked.  See this is why you need me… treat me to an icecream and I will be your mentor on this journey’ the orange headed girl spoke with a lot of pride in her voice. Ash considered his options for a moment before agreeing.  Ordering three cups of ice, handing Misty one, as well as one for Eevee and himself. Quite hungry they all dug in to the sweet delight. Misty made a whiney sound as she grabbed her head. ‘Uuurgh Brainfreeze. As he looked to his new companion grab her head in pain, seeing Eevee devour it’s ice cream and seeing his own half eaten cup he realised something was off. Even though he was eating faster than Misty he did not feel any effect at all. Neither did Eevee.

And with their day coming to a close we will leave this story once. Next week our heroes will travel through Viridian Forest where Ash will begin his real training as a Pokémon trainer. What did the revival do to Ash though.. what is happening to him?  Eevee clearly being weaker than Pikachu is already coming into play, with Misty taking a much more capable role revealing her talents early, how will Ash grow? Find out in the next installments!. if you have a suggestion for a what if let me know in the comments. What do you think will happen in Viridian Forest? Leave a like or a comment and remember!
I am not weird! Just very pink!
Until we read again.
