Daffy’s Nuzlocke Journal: Pokemon LeafGreen (Day 1)

I recently got a copy of Pokemon LeafGreen at a convention since that’s one of the only Pokemon games I don’t own. I have loved Pokemon ever since I was a kid and first started watching the Anime, then buying up the cards, then begging my mom to by me Red when it first came out.

Still, my love for the games has been somewhat limited. There are big gaps in my memory for a lot of the Pokemon past the first generation. I also seem to remember that I haven’t fully played a couple of Pokemon games. There’s also a lot about Pokemon I don’t fully understand (like “natures” and “IVs” and “EVs”). At best, I’m a casual player.

Still, I have been inspired. I like watching PokeTubers like TheKingNappy and ShadyPenguin when they do Nuzlockes. Therefore, I have decided to do a Nuzlocke. I’m no stranger to the rules, as I’ve attempted a Nuzlocke of Soul Silver before. Depending on how this goes, I’ll be Nuzlocking every Pokemon game I own, starting with Leaf Green. I’ll go in order of the “generations;” however, I’ll be doing “LeafGreen” instead of “Red,” and “Omega Ruby” instead of Ruby, just because those are easier. I’ll also be keeping a log of my Pokemon travels. I’m calling it Daffy’s Nuzlocke Journal. I’ll be writing it from the perspective of the character I made in the game, Daffy. Think of it as if the character is keeping his own personal log of his journey.

If you’ve never heard of a “Pokemon Nuzlocke,” here are the rules.

  1. If a Pokemon faints (aka loses all its HP), it is considered dead. Normally, people release them. Instead, I’ll be keeping a box of dead Pokemon in my PC.
  2. If all my Pokemon “die” in a battle, I lose.
  3. I’m only allowed to catch the first Pokemon I encounter in each new area. If I accidentally kill the Pokemon, or if it runs away or roars me away, I can’t catch any Pokemon in that area.
  4. I have to nickname the Pokemon so I’m more emotionally attached to it.
  5. If I find a Pokemon in an area that I’ve already caught (or I caught one of it’s evolutions already), I can get the next new Pokemon I see.

I’ll explain how these rules work in the “world” of the game as I go through the journal itself.

Silent Hills is Back?

I am a gamer. Granted, I’m not very good at gaming, but I have a pretty big collection of games. So, I’ve been keeping tabs on E3, the yearly convention where big video game companies announce new, upcoming games. And, thus far, my favorite announcement has come from Sony and Hideo Kojima. Namely, a new game is being made with Norman Reedus. A game called Death Stranding. And like everyone else, one question keeps going through my mind: Is Silent Hills back?

Thoughts from a Wii U Owner

So, I recently moved in with my grandma temporarily (which you’d know if you’ve been paying attention). As such, this blog is a tad late since I’ve been just getting used to being in this environment. Not a HUGE change, but a change nonetheless. Still, I’ve had at least one thing on my mind a lot recently and that thing is the Wii U.
