I finally reached Snowpoint City! :D But let's see what happened on the way here.~

When ZIMMY died, I was wondering why he was holding an Everstone. It looks like past_me made some decisions that are bad for this trip, so now present_me has to fix all problems that past_me caused. First things first, there was no need to keep PEP as a Pikachu this whole time, so I popped out a Thunderstone to evolve her. Luckily, the combination of Medicham, Quagsire and Raichu was good enough to survive the remaining half of the road with barely any trouble.


On my way, I caught a Zubat. I don't know how I feel about this right after losing a Golbat. However, I think it is a better catch than the Snover that I could have caught right after it.


When I reached the Pokémon Center in Snowpoint City, I unlocked the ability to Fly here any time without taking this journey again. I was happy for that. But then I decided to explore the city a bit.

@Audience: Hands up if you have played Pokémon D/P/Pt before and if you have been to Snowpoint City!

If you have been here before, you will know what's up. I entered one of the houses, where a girl wanted to know if I had a Medicham.

"Oh, I do have a Medicham! Maybe she's going to give me something as a reward for showing Medicham to her. :)"

And then the girl said the following:


When I remembered what's happening here, I NOPE-d the hell outta there. A bad decision here could have lost the game for me.

In the next episode, REYNOLD and his team will enter the Snowpoint City gym. Stay tuned!

Short update incoming.~

I was a bit worried about the upcoming gym, because I only had 2 realistic options against Ice. So before fighting Candice, I went around town to train my team a bit. In the surrounding, unexplored areas, I found a Snover and a Swinub who are now part of my team. Also, the egg hatched, so now I can use a Riolu too. :)


The training didn't take long, and I only made a few notable changes to my team. First of all, I brought out a few Water-types to resist Ice. I thought it would be good if FROYZZ, the Floatzel, had a super effective move against Ice, so I taught him Rock Tomb. Then the biggest change of them all, ZERIA, the Crobat, now knows Roost. :D That is crucial, because it not only heals back half of her HP, but she also stops being weak to Ice while roosting.



Now is the point where I should post a detailed version of the gym fight, but I don't have time for that today. (I might update this part later, because Candice is one of my favorite gym leaders of this Gen, and I don't want her to receive any less treatment than the others.) Candice had 4 Pokémon: Sneasel, Froslass, Abomasnow, Piloswine.

Sneasel was taken out by MYSTERY, the Medicham. However, MYSTERY got damaged in the fight with Sneasel, so I couldn't use him for the fights after it.
Froslass was taken out by FROYZZ with two Bites. Froslass tried to boost its evasiveness, but to no avail.
After that, ZERIA had taken out Abomasnow in one hit, then she proceeded to toy around with Piloswine a bit to see how good she is with Roost now. Piloswine used Stone Edge until its PP ran out, but only one of them hit ZERIA. (It was less than half, so ZERIA casually Roosted back to full health after that.) When Piloswine wanted to use Avalanche, ZERIA was already high up in the sky, readying a finishing blow with Fly.

After the battle, I concluded that ZERIA could have swept this gym alone without much harm. Therefore, I am setting a new challenge: Try to clear new routes or locations with only ZERIA. It should be fun. ^^


Next up, we will teach someone Rock Climb and continue exploring.~
And we keep driving into the night
It's a late goodbye, such a late goodbye...

It was time to make some progress again.~

REYNOLD's first destination was Lake Acuity, where Galactic Commander Jupiter already defeated our rival, Zane. We did not find a battle here, but we were thorough enough to find a new Psyduck who was willing to join our team. :) Her name shall be FLISS, and I hope she's not a captain of any boat if you get the reference.~

Next up, we had a visit to the Veilstone City HQ of Team Galactic on our list. I had assumed I would have gotten there several updates ago, but it's only now that we can finally get in. Inside, I neglected the ZERIA challenge to level up RATHALOS a bit, our team's Rhyhorn. I knew that my goal was to reach the room of the boss, but it took me a while to get there. Halfway towards that goal, I bumped into Looker, who was spying on a secret Team Galactic meeting. There, he had an interesting comment about Cyrus after the meeting ended.


"Oh look, I'm as old as Cyrus!"

"Da heck?! I thought he was like 40."

After that sidetrack, my way was sort of clean towards the final room. (Except that one Scientist guy in front of the television, who I knew would want to fight me. ZERIA was leading in that fight instead of RATHALOS.) In there, it was time for a rematch between REYNOLD and the ever-cunning leader of Team Galactic.~

Second Boss Battle: Galactic Boss Cyrus!



Spoiler for Video to be uploaded later:
[ Invalid YouTube link ]

His team was good, consisting of Sneasel, Crobat and Honchkrow, but I had a trump card for this match. Long story short, Cyrus passed the ZERIA challenge. Or more like, ZERIA passed the Cyrus challenge. It's the same thing. (The ZERIA challenge is all about ZERIA single-handedly taking care of opponents or entire routes.)

Cyrus acknowledged his temporary defeat, and as a sign of his acknowledgement, he rewarded us with our first (and also last) Master Ball. It's an appreciated token, though I doubt I will ever use it.

Okay, so we defeated Cyrus, but why have we come to Team Galactic's HQ anyway?? Oh, that's right! We came to release the captured legendary pokémon: Mesprit, Azelf and Uxie. Cyrus did not care about letting us release them though, because he had already gotten what he wanted out of them; the power to bind something. Something big and even more legendary.


Before we could release them though, REYNOLD had to fight through the stubborn Galactic Admin Saturn, who did not approve of the boss letting us in. (Oh, and Charon was there too.)

Boss Battle: Galactic Admin Saturn!



Spoiler for Video to be uploaded later:
[ Invalid YouTube link ]

I did not take Saturn seriously. I had just defeated Team Galactic's strongest member with only ZERIA, so why should I? I was prepared to complete the ZERIA challenge again, this time on Saturn. However, he started with the only chance he had against me: Chance! And by that, I mean he used Supersonic with a Golbat to quickly confuse ZERIA. His attacks were not strong enough to take down ZERIA, but if ZERIA kept hitting herself, it would add up to a nasty amount of damage.

So that was Saturn's plan to avoid being the next victim of the ZERIA challenge. It worked out well for him in the beginning, bringing ZERIA down to half HP with his Golbat. After that, ZERIA continuously tried to use Roost, but she kept hitting herself in confusion while also getting hit by Air Cutters. After 3 consecutive confusions, I really banked on snapping out of it and using Roost, but once again it failed! :o Shit, shit, shit - I was thinking. ZERIA barely had any health left, and another Air Cutter was incoming. And then... ZERIA lived with 7 HP! :o :o :o

To continue the ZERIA challenge and not lose my strongest Pokémon, my only option would have been to not get confused and use Roost. This was a huge risk though, so I cancelled the ZERIA challenge and switched in SONIC, the Luxray. SONIC could handle Golbat with a single Thunder Fang, so things started to look better.

Saturn's second Pokémon was a Bronzor, who my Medicham could easily take out without taking damage.

And then Saturn's last Pokémon was a Toxicroak, who I mistakenly thought would still be unevolved. (I expected a Croagunk to come out.) Since SONIC had taken out Croagunks in the past, I thought he could easily handle this one as well. However, Toxicroak's damage was no joke, so I had to switch out SONIC into Detective SHELLOCK, my Gastrodon. Detective SHELLOCK quickly identified Toxicroak's next move to be Poison Jab, which he concluded to be not very effective against him, thus ensuring a safe switch-in. Nice detective work as always, SHELLOCK!


SHELLOCK was my last bastion against Toxicroak though. ZERIA didn't have enough health to switch-in, my Riolu was seriously underlevelled, SONIC would have gone down in a single hit, RATHALOS was weak to Toxicroak's Fighting-type moves, and at that point, I assumed that Toxicroak resisted all of MYSTERY's moves (MYSTERY is the name of my Medicham). If SHELLOCK was about to lose, my only option would have been making a tough decision to sack a team member, then bringing in ZERIA to start healing by using Roost repeatedly.

I counted my options with SHELLOCK. His damaging moves were Surf, Mud Bomb, Body Slam and Hidden Power Fighting. HP Fighting was our weakest move, plus Toxicroak resisted it, so using that was out of the question. Surf would have been great, but I was afraid that Toxicroak might have the Dry Skin ability, which nullifies all Water-type attacks. If he had that ability, I would have just given him an extra turn, which would have been awful. (With SHELLOCK already damaged, I was certain that Toxicroak can defeat him with 2 attacks. And with SHELLOCK having lower Speed than Toxicroak, an extra turn would have guaranteed SHELLOCK to lose.)

My other options were Mud Bomb and Body Slam. Mud Bomb was sure to one-hit KO Toxicroak if it hit, but if it didn't hit, I would have just given him an extra turn again, which I could not risk with only 85% success rate. So really, my safest option was Body Slam, which was a 2-hit KO at best, and it also had a small chance to paralyze the opponent. With all this in mind, I went for the Body Slam and hoped to get a paralysis. As I expected though, it was not enought for a 1-hit KO. However, it was a good enough attack to make the opponent paralyzed! :o That was exactly what I needed. Paralyzed Pokémon have their Speed stat halved, which allowed SHELLOCK to move first next turn. With a second Body Slam, the 2-hit KO was completed and Toxicroak went down. (If Toxicroak would have moved first, SHELLOCK could have died right there.) This time, Detective SHELLOCK saved the day!


Spoiler for Post-Fight Screen:

After the fight, I realized that MYSTERY did have a neutral move against Toxicroak (Strength), which I could have used in case things got rougher. Luckily, it did not come to that. ^^" REYNOLD proceeded to free the legendary guardians of the lakes, then quickly headed to Mount Coronet, where Galactic Leader Cyrus planned his next big move at Spear Pillar.

That, however, will be part of another episode.~

It was time to make progress again!

That's right. I am still not dead and I refuse to lose with ZERIA on my side. Here is a quick update.

  • I found the real entrance to the top of Mount Coronet.
  • TENECAC evolved into a Tentacruel.
  • I caught a second Snover.
  • Adding Quick Claw to Rhyhorn turned out to be a helpful gimmick.
  • ZERIA is still a tank, eating Explosions from Gravellers. (Though they were 8 levels lower and she only had 30 HP left after each.)

And most importantly, I am finally at Spear Pillar.


I already fear the next episode, especially with this team...

Whew, I got a lot to summarize but I try not to go too much into the details.

At the entrance of Spear Pillar, our first blockade was a tag team of top tier Team Galactic Grunts. As far as I recall, this was not a challenge.

Further down, we were stopped by a tag team of Team Galactic Admins, Saturn and Jupiter. This was a more formidable combo, but our rival, Zane, rushed to our help. Let the horns of battle roar!

Boss Double Battle: Galactic Admin Mars and Galactic Admin Jupiter!



Spoiler for Video to be uploaded later:
[ Invalid YouTube link ]

This was a perfect time to test if ZERIA can solo everyone on Spear Pillar. In the first matchup, ZERIA and Zane's Muchlax were up against two Bronzors. The Bronzors quickly set up a Reflect and a Light Screen, but Muchlax did an actual useful thing by using Screech to harshly lower their defenses. ZERIA used Bite to chip away the Bronzors while tanking the super effective Extrasensorys from them.

When Reflect wore off, ZERIA finished off one of the Bronzors and Munchlax paralyzed the other one. When PURUGLY came in to replace the fainted Bronzor, ZERIA needed to Roost, but Munchlax was smart enough to finish off the paralyzed Bronzor with a Body Slam. At this point, we were facing two boss monsters, PURUGLY and SKUNTANK.

Munchlax proceeded to remain useful, using Screech on both PURUGLY and SKUNTANK while ZERIA was in the air to prepare a Fly attack. Fly missed though, but so did the Hypnosis of the PURUGLY. During the next turn though, PURUGLY got in a critical strike, allowing Mars to take down Zane's Munchlax.


Zane sent out Staraptor next with a perfect timing. Staraptor's Intimidate ability lowered the attack of both enemies. PURUGLY almost took out Staraptor with a critical Slash attack, but Staraptor lived with just enough health to pummel PURUGLY into the ground with a super effective Close Combat attack. With Close Combat being super effective and PURUGLY's Defense being harshly lowered by Screech, it was a 1-hit KO. After this though, SKUNTANK took the opportunity to bury Staraptor's remaining lives with a well-timed Flamethrower.

To replace the fallen, Galactic Admin Mars sent out Golbat while Zane sent out his Heracross. The battle was heated. ZERIA flew up high in the air, avoiding the incoming attacks, but Heracross was not as lucky. Heracross straight up ate a four times super effective Air Cutter from the opposing Golbat, and I was ready to bury Heracross six feet under. HOWEVER, that is not what happened! Heracross only lost above half of his HP, tanking the attack and retaliating with a full power Close Combat to take down SKUNTANK from almost full health.

With both boss monsters down, Jupiter also sent our her Golbat, which immediately got struck by the attack of ZERIA, almost dying to ZERIA's attack on the first turn. The other Golbat, however, was quick enough to finish off Heracross with another Air Cutter.

However, Zane still had a leg to step back on. His replacement for Heracross was his Floatzel, which started out with a well-placed Aqua Jet to finish off the Golbat that ZERIA weakened beforehand.

Jupiter was now out of the equation, so it was down to a Floatzel and ZERIA to take down the last Golbat. ZERIA and Golbat used Bite and Bite back and forth for two turns. When the Golbat was weakened enough by the series of Bites, Floatzel came in with anothe Aqua Jet to finish it off.

With that, Zane and Reynold defeated the dastardly duo of the Team Galactic Admins. (The ZERIA challenge for Spear Pillar was completed!)

And we keep driving into the night

ACTUAL SPOILER for the conclusion of the Nuzlocke.

Spoiler for Hidden:
After a huge time skip, I finally reached the Pokemon League. Each member of the Elite Four chipped down one member from my team, except the last one, who chipped down two. This meant I had to face Cynthia with ZERIA alone. It did not go well, we went down to her Spiritomb.

That is the end of Reynold's adventure, and the eigtht failed attempt at the Nuzlocke. But this time, we got further than even. Who knows? Maybe next time, it will be a victourious journey.~
And we keep driving into the night
It's a late goodbye, such a late goodbye...
