Hooray! It's finally out!

Those of you watching my tumblr know what happened to this update earlier-- but it's finally done!


The egg thing was actually an in-game event that I didn't know about. I walked up to a guy with BARB in front and he gave the party an egg for max happiness on BARB-- so I thought that was a great plot point. :>

Also, as LEOPOLD said, I was invoking the rule of cool with SPUDS JR. I didn't want the update dragging on, so I made the evolution happen quickly to save everyone the trouble. :)

And since the next update is Mewtwo, have the team's pre-mewtwo stats and movesets!:

-Met Pallet Town lvl 5
-Miracle Seed
+LvL 68
-HP: 198
-Attack: 155
-Defense: 164
-Sp. Attack: 164
-Sp. Defense: 145
-Speed: 147
+Razor Leaf
+Frenzy Plant
+Leech Seed
+Giga Drain

-Met Viridian Forest lvl 4
-Amulet Coin
-Compound Eyes
+LvL 70
-HP: 181
-Attack: 115
-Defense: 112
-Sp. Attack: 129
-Sp. Defense: 120
-Speed: 130
+Aerial Ace
+Sleep Powder
+Dream Eater

-Met Route 3 lvl 6

-HP: 220
-Attack: 132
-Defense: 164
-Sp. Attack: 131

+LvL 70
-HP: 229
-Attack: 132
-Defense: 146
-Sp. Attack: 145
-Sp. Defense: 180

-HP: 199
-Attack: 77
-Defense: 142

ALSO-- since I have already fought mewtwo in-game, I don't need advice on my moveset. XD <3

Since I've been asked about it: I used an exp share until he was about level 30 and then swap trained using the Vs. Seeker til he was about 50 (I was using the seeker on higher-leveled trainers in Sevii)

After that, i ported all of my team to my Pokemon Colosseum game and ran Mt. Battle continuously until they wee the levels you see (I kept the nuzlocke rules in effect and it was really risky on my part. @__@ I almost lost LULU on Mt. Battle to a wobuffet)

It still took a couple days of gameplay, but I hand-grinded all these pokemon. :)

Concerning the discussion in the comments:

Whoo, guess I need to rectify this a bit:

Bob is right in saying that he doesn't have to enjoy everything in the comics and I can see where he sees that it's sudden. I don't really focus the story on it too much, and I hinted at it really through the comic. I will say that the kiss in the Christmas special is supposed to be the "I love you" confession in the comic. I mean, I personally don't think pokemon would have anything like marriages to us, and I am also going to assume that, like animals in real life, not many mate for life. (SPUDS says in the Q&A that venusaurs do, but the nido family doesn't necessarily)

Also, they talk about their relationship in the Q&A comic, and it's kind of obvious that they took the next step. Again, I tried not to put too much focus on their relationship since I didn't want it to bog down the story too much.

The way I see it is that you can read my run for any reason you want, you can question whatever you want and you can even hate what you want. It's a story, not everyone will like any/all of it and they don't have to. :)

So, Bob, thank you for being honest. <3

And thank you to everyone who was defending the comic too! I've said it before, I never expected the run to be that popular, so it's great that it's gotten fans. <3

Spuds Jr.
What's up with Spuds Jr.? You wanna tell me that you were training it that much? From level 5 to level 75? Or was it just a rare candy treatment?

^(Diamors)^Level 75?

So he's the highest level in your party?

It's curious as to why Locke seems act as if these pokemon not currently found in Kanto are something she has seen before...

So...Are you going to do a heartgold run, or not? Because you could always palpark Spuds and the team over once you beat the E4.

About Spuds Jr
Think of it this way guys - she is late into the game and she could possibly have an exp share. That would help immensely for fast leveling
Also some people DO have the patience for grinding. Motivation being rare candy makes stats bad.

Blue Rose, April 25th, 2011, 5:38 pm     Reply

I agree with Karmarsi. When I got a low level pokemon late in a game, I took my time raising it. There really are people out there such as I, Petty, and many others who do have patience for grinding and the such. Items such as Exp. Share or even the Macho Brace also come in handy for grinding, so I wouldn't be so shocked that her new team member is already so strong.

That aside, looks like the big moment is coming. I wish the best of luck to Locke and her team.

Do rare candies really give bad stats? Good thing I never used them and kept hoarding tons of 'em

Karmarsi, April 25th, 2011, 6:59 pm     Reply

Yes they do as you don't get ev's from rare candies like you do with basttling other trainers or wile pokemons

@ Petty
Well even for a couple of days, that's some very impressive grinding. I wish I had as much dedication to grinding as that. ;3;

By the way, do you check messages on this site often? Just curious as I sent you something on here.

MarillTachiquin (Guest), April 27th, 2011, 10:14 pm     Reply

Wow, impressive! I know how it feels! I'm still grinding a Lucario from Lv. 1 to Lv. 60. I'm right now at L. 54, so it has been a long way.

Admittingly, I keep checking back on this page. Why? Because it's so cute to see Spuds and Barb so very happy when they adopt the egg <3

Jacob (Guest), April 29th, 2011, 10:54 am     Reply

the only time i ever really use rare candies is when i really want a pokemon to evolve for gym battles and after taking my lvl 19 magicarp out of the daycare so i wouldn't need to grind because i didn't have an exp share

Someguy (Guest), April 29th, 2011, 8:54 pm     Reply

Rare Candies
Actually, you can quite easily max your EV's out grinding on low exp valued pokemon. There's an entirely huge thing about which pokemon give what EV's at what rates, over on bulbapedia. Once your EV's are maxed out, you no longer have to worry about rare candies screwing anything up. Further, in gen 1 you could rare candy a pokemon to level cap, grind, put it in a box and take it back out, and it's stats would be fixed to reflect the EV's or whatever they were called back then. In gen 5, stats are no longer calculated upon level up, instead being calculated after each battle, so you never need worry about it. I can't remember right off hand how to force a stat update in gens 3 and 4, but I remember there was a way. Anyway, that's my 2 cents and attempt at destroying the rare candy myth.

Yes, it IS out of nowhere. They interacted very briefly a few times, suddenly they're in love.

Ellipses (Guest), April 30th, 2011, 1:30 pm     Reply

Bob, obviously we don't see every waking moment of their lives. Of course they've spent more time together offscreen - you don't go from lvl 5 in Pallet Town to lvl 70 and the Champion in a few days, and you don't do that without getting VERY close to your teammates. So you can't exactly say it's "sudden".

Also, who are you to call it unnecessary? Her Nuzlocke, she can do whatever she wants with it.

Guillo (Guest), April 30th, 2011, 1:53 pm     Reply

Then maybe you should have paid more attention like everybody else did, Bob

Bob (Guest), April 30th, 2011, 2:48 pm     Reply

I don't have to like everything about her run, I'm allowed my opinion. Everything else about the run is fine.

Dan (Guest), May 1st, 2011, 6:25 am     Reply

I'm excited to see what happens next! I've been a huge fan since day one - or at least very close to it :P

I will defend Bob a little bit here, though. I think Spuds and Barb should have at least...announced their love to each other prior to deciding to get a baby. There was always a will they/won't they feel...and now they have a kid?

ACK but i don't want to sound like that matters too much to me - the run is AMAZING!!! AHH MEWTWO GONNA DIEE

They don't have to announce their love. It's their life, and it DIDN'T come out of no where. Re read the comics, you obviously weren't paying attention, which means you don't really care about this comic.

Bob (Guest), May 1st, 2011, 6:11 pm     Reply

"Their" meaning the non-existent comic characters. It did kinda, they talked, blushed, and suddenly they were in love.

And another thing
Let's just say I wasn't paying attention to the romance, that doesn't mean I don't care about the comic.

Jim (Guest), May 1st, 2011, 6:15 pm     Reply

The romance is an important part of the story, even though you claim it's pointless, so you have only yourself to blame if you get lost with some aspects of the story like Spuds' and Barb's romance because you didn't want to pay attention to it. Anyway stop posting, this crap is probably going to get deleted. Stop questioning little things and just enjoy the comic.

Zac (Guest), May 1st, 2011, 7:55 pm     Reply

Bob, if you go back to mt. moom where she first caught Barb, there was a point where Spuds protected her. RIGHT then and there. you see she has a crush on him. And since then their relationship has grown stronger.

I didn't even know it was going on until I hopped on to check the comments today and saw it. I figured I better calm everyone down before it got too out of hand (I'm not a fan of flame wars, personally, and this was starting to develop into one.)

Also, I forgot to tell you in the PM, but I got your picture and I looooove it. ; w ; Thank you! <333

Hey, it says on bulbapedia that slowpoke evolves into slowking by trading with a kings rock. Are you allowed to trade for that purpose in a nuzlocke run?
