Finally decided to try out Pokemon Shield (it was laying in my drawer for months, still in foil; was thinking about reselling it with profit since I bought it for 20$ on sale). Because of mandatory Exp Share, and to make things more interesting, I chose to go with Nuzlocke rules and constantly shuffle my main team with some lower level fodder (still have everyone around lvl 18 when average trainers are on 15. Sasuga Gamefreak.). Currently on Route 4. Main team:
-Simon the Raboot, so far does a good job as the teams fastest and hardest hitting member
-Artoria the Corvisquire, was really happy to get her on route 1 (I really want to try out Corviknight)
-Nero the Roselia, made catching a lot less of the headache with her Stun Spore
-Jose the Lombre, always wanted to try one of these, though considering that I already have Roselia, I may end up benching him later
-Teddie the Stufful, could’ve very well be the end of the run (or at least couple main mons). Even at 1/3 HP and paralysed he just wouldn’t stay in the ball, and with his strong Attack and everyone running on fumes I had to sacrifice Zim the Blipbug just to buy time. At least he has Fluffy and not Klutz, so it was worth it in the end
-Manako the Duskull, never used one before, at very least she’s really bulky
-until recently the last main member was Nina the Zigzagoon, but she unfortunately died to Bede (I wasn’t expecting Endeavor from Solosis, followed by Disarming Voice from Hatenna); will have to replace her with someone.
All of these voices running through my head~
Yeah, when I was doing the Nuzlocke of Platinum years ago, I was really
lucky to get Weavile. I don’t think anything other than it in Sinnoh would be able to reliably take care of The Landshark without sacking mons, with the exception of maybe Froslass. And probably Togekiss in remakes, assuming it’s possible to get it without trade. And that they won’t give Garchomp Stone Edge like in Unova just to fuck with people.
