Can you change your name back?

Keeping on topic, it's so hard to make a team for Johto.

Man, Burgh was so hard on Challenge Mode, even with Magnemite and Pignite.

Next Pokemon on the agenda is a rose by any other name that smell as evil.

Up to three badges in my Platinum Nuzlocke.  Out of any possible free chances or cop-outs I'd allowed myself at the beginning, but I now have the Relic Badge and my team has not changed from the last update except in terms of level (and in one case, evolution):

Current lineup:
Monferno, Level 28 male, starter
Gyarados, Level 28 female, met on Route 218
Bibarel, Level 27 male, met on Route 204
Graveler, Level 27 female, met at the Oreburgh Gate
Onix, Level 27 female, met in the Oreburgh Mine
Shellos, Level 27 male, met on Route 205

Fallen heroes:
Shinx, Level 13 female, met on Route 203
Kricketune, Level 13 male, met on Route 202

I guess the bad news is I don't have anyone in the current lineup who can use Defog.  I don't have a single bird in the PC at the moment, either, so I'm hoping for a Flying-type on one of the upcoming routes to help me out with that and Fly.

...Strike what I just said, I just lost my Onix in a double battle. :( I was hoping her Defenses would be enough, but both her and my Bibarel missed the target on the first turn and a surprise Jump Kick and being ganged up on by both members meant she went down in three turns, leaving Bibarel to finish things off by himself.

So that brings me up to three losses, and means bringing in the Bronzor I caught in the Wayward Cave to hopefully cover for more weak spots.  Just about to enter the Solaceon Ruins with the following team:

Current lineup:
Monferno, Level 28 male, starter
Gyarados, Level 28 female, met on Route 218
Bibarel, Level 27 male, met on Route 204
Graveler, Level 28 female, met at the Oreburgh Gate
Shellos, Level 28 male, met on Route 205
Bronzor, Level 18 neuter, met in Wayward Cave

Fallen heroes:
Shinx, Level 13 female, met on Route 203
Kricketune, Level 13 male, met on Route 202
Onix, Level 28 female, met in the Oreburgh Mine

On a lighter note, my first encounter on Route 209 ended up being a Chansey and I knew I had to have it.  She's on standby in case something else should go wrong fairly soon, but I'm hoping I'm well-prepared for the next gym battle against Maylene.

It took half an hour to find an Axew. Now what's left is to catch Staryu. If only I wasn't in Mistralton and the earliest Staryu is on the other side of the region.

I think whether it seems like he's overreacting depends on whether you see Pokémon as just animals or weapons.  The second interpretation explains a lot about the games, IMO.

Anyway, I'm up to four badges in the Platinum Nuzlocke now and it's about time.  But, I'm also up to four losses, and the last one was my Bronzor.  Surprisingly enough, it was in the last regular battle before Maylene, and that high-level Heracross ended up getting in a critical hit with Brick Break, which was enough to kill it.  Once I took it down with my Gyarados in the rematch, then I only needed Gyarados and Monferno to deal with Maylene herself, but it was a tense battle.

I brought in my Chansey from the PC to fill the empty space in the team.  Currently leveling her up on Route 214 and trying to devise the perfect moveset for trolling through the game. >:3

Current lineup:
Monferno, Level 30 male, starter
Gyarados, Level 30 female, met on Route 218
Bibarel, Level 30 male, met on Route 204
Graveler, Level 30 female, met at the Oreburgh Gate
Gastrodon, Level 30 male, met on Route 205
Chansey, Level 26 female, met on Route 209

Fallen heroes:
Shinx, Level 13 female, met on Route 203
Kricketune, Level 13 male, met on Route 202
Onix, Level 28 female, met in the Oreburgh Mine
Bronzor, Level 29, met in Wayward Cave

Well, got pretty lucky in the Great Marsh where I ended up with a glorious Tropius.  I've already cleared out Route 212, but nothing worthy of note there.  I did end up losing my Bibarel in the battle with Barry (one critical hit plus Rollout not doing enough damage will do that), but I got the Fen Badge soon after, using my Gyarados and the Octillery on Route 213, but also my newly evolved Infernape who not only one-shot Quagsire with Grass Knot, but actually landed the final blow.

Current lineup:
Infernape, Level 36 male, starter
Gyarados, Level 36 female, met on Route 218
Graveler, Level 35 female, met at the Oreburgh Gate
Gastrodon, Level 35 male, met on Route 205
Blissey, Level 35 female, met on Route 209
Octillery, Level 36 female, met on Route 213

Fallen heroes:
Shinx, Level 13 female, met on Route 203
Kricketune, Level 13 male, met on Route 202
Onix, Level 28 female, met in the Oreburgh Mine
Bronzor, Level 29, met in Wayward Cave
Bibarel, Level 35 male, met on Route 204

Not sure when I'll fit in any of the backtracking and exploration with Surf.  Once I get my Tropius out of the PC I can teach him Fly, but for now, I want to try and avoid rotating the team too much.  It'll be easier to write the story that way, IMO.

A few thoughts for rebalancing the metagame in recent generations:

- Stealth Rock HAS to be nerfed.  I'm thinking that normal damage should either be 6.25% or 5% of the max HP, depending on whether the game data could store 5% as a possibility.
- Make Earthquake have 90% or 85% accuracy and give it a weaker counterpart with 75 or 80 base power, but 100% accuracy.  As it is, I think it's way too powerful for such an accessible move, but I don't see GameFreak retconning the movesets at this point so it has to be nerfed.
- Balance out Shell Smash by setting all the stat changes at the same number of stages.  Most of the Pokémon that get it are walls already, so shouldn't it at least be a two-stage decrease for their defenses, or only one-stage for Attack, Special Attack and Speed?
- Moody should follow the same guideline as Shell Smash.  Same number of stages for the increase versus the decrease, which would at least be a good step towards balance...
- Abilities like Swift Swim should only boost by one stage rather than two.  They've been banned in conjunction with auto-weather abilities by Smogon for a reason.

Any ideas of what to add to the list?



EDIT: I'd recommend Roost for Altaria, Viper.  After all, that could also help defend against several weaknesses for a turn if s/he's fast enough.  Otherwise, if you want another attack instead, I'd consider Fire Blast or Flamethrower, depending on how you feel about the lower accuracy.

I hate it when the Champion's team doesnt make any sense. Like Cynthia's Togekiss with Hustle and no Physical moves. Or Lance's Dragonite that spams Draco Meteor and only has Special moves.
