===

6-7-19

    *Journey Begins. Squirtle Chosen as Starter. Named "SteveWinwd" (Steve Winwood).
    *Rattata captured on Route 1. Named "Splinter IV" (Each of my Rattata from my various Pokemon runs, since my first Nuzlocke run, have been named Splinter. There was Splinter - 1st attempt, Splinter Jr - 2nd attempt, Splinter III - Pokemon Silver and now Splinter IV)


6-8-19

    * Caught Nidoran Female on Route 22. Named "RealFknNdo" (Real Fuckin' Nido).
    * Caught Rattata on Route 2. Named "Digrat" (as a nod to Twitch Plays Pokemon)
    * Caught Weedle in Viridian Forest. Named "SpikeJones".


6-9-19

    * Caught Weedle in Pewter City. Named "CitySlickr" (City Slicker). Both of My weedles are a reference to "Spike Jones and His City Slickers".
    * Defeated Brock at PewterCity and earned the Boulder Badge.


6-14-19

    * Caught Pidgey on Route 3. Named "BJBirdkwtz" (BJ Birdkowitz). A nod to Wolfenstein and another of my traditional Pokemon names.
    * Caught Zubat in Mt. Moon. Named "Wingrat".


6-16-19

    * Completed Mt. Moon and chose the Helix Fossil. Another nod to Twitch Plays Pokemon.
    * Captured Ekans on Route 4. Named "Herrstory" (Her Story). This is a multi-level pun. The name was going to be Hiss-tory. But I decided the snake was a girl. So it's Herrstory. Yes I was very tired when I made this joke.
    * Beat Rival on Nugget Bridge.
    * Caught Oddish on Route 24. Named "CotnMthJoe" (Cotton Mouth Joe).
    * Missed Abra on Route 25. OHKO'd with Hyper Fang, though would have likely lost it to "Teleport" anyway. First failure of the run.
    * Got Ticket for SS Anne from Bill.
    * Defeated Misty at Cerulean City and earned the Cascade Badge.


6-22-19

    * Missed Oddish on Route 5. OHKO'd with Hyper Fang.
    * Left Herrstory at Daycare.
    * Caught Oddish on Route 6. Named "Oddbollock" (Odd Bollocks).
    * KILLED IN ACTION: Digrat. Defeated by Bug Trainer on Route 6 and his Level 20 Butterfree to Confusion. En pace requie-rat.
    * Caught Diglett in Diglett's Cave. Named "Troll Toll" (Reference to Always Sunny)
    * KILLED IN ACTION: BJ Birdkowitz. Defeated by Wild Dugtrio Lv 31 in Diglett's Cave. Died, trying to escape. Rest in Pidgey.
    * Caught Ekans on Route 11. Named "Asphole" (Because I am bitter)
    * THE SS BLOODBATH: Defeated all trainers and Rival on the SS Anne and obtained Cut (taught it to Cotton Mouth Joe).


6-23-19

    * Level-grinding galore.
    * Defeated Lt. Surge at Vermillion City and earned the Thunderbadge.
    * Caught Spearow on Route 9. Named "JtFlCtMtSB: (Jet Fuel Can't Melt Steal Beam)
    * Caught Ekans on Route 10. Named "PenisOPssy" (Penis O'Pussy, because I am bitter about having a Third Fucking Snake instead of something that can use Flash.)


6-26-19

    * Made it through Rock Tunnel, without Flash.
    * Missed a Zubat in Rock Tunnel.
    * Missed a Pidgey on Route 8.
    * Caught a Mankey on Route 7. Named "Dayman" (Reference to Always Sunny)
    * Obtained Eevee in Celadon City. Named "TheRedeemd" ("The Redeemed", a nod to how I obtained Flareon in my original Nuzlocke but it was never able to work for me. Also a double reference to it being dubbed the False Prophet in the Twitch Plays Pokemon run.)
    * Splinter IV single-handedly took down Erika's Gym.
    * Defeated Erika in Celadon City and earned the Rainbowbadge.


7-4-19

    * Defeated Giovanni at the Rocket Corner


7-6-19

    * Caught a Gastly in Lavender Tower. Named "RickGastly" (Obvious reference is obvious).
    * Freed Mr. Fuji and got the Poke Flute.


7-10-19

    * Caught a Doduo on Route 16. Named "HarderDodi" (Because I'm sick and I had trouble thinking of a punny name for the bird.)
    * Caught a Raticate on Route 18. Named "RatJesus" (In honor of Digrat who was fallen and has returned to us).


7-18-19

    * KILLED IN ACTION: CottonMouthJoe. Defeated by a Rocket in Silph Co and his Level 28 Zubat. R.I.P
    * KILLED IN ACTION: Troll Toll. Defeated by a Rival in Silph Co and his Level 35 Alakazam. R.I.P
    * Defeat Rival and Giovanni in Silph Co.


7-23-19

    * Captured a Magikarp on Route 12. Named it "GyariBusey" (Gary Busey).
    * Pulled out Oddbollocks and taught him Cut. Deposited TheRedeemed (my Flareon).
    * Missed a Level 24 Oddish on Route 13. OHKO'd.
    * Missed a Level 26 Pidgey on Route 14. Whirlwind blew me away.
    * Missed a Level 26 Ditto on Route 15. Ran out of Balls except the Master Ball which I didn't want to waste on a Ditto.
    * Missed a Level 22 Male Nidoran in the Safari Zone. Ran away. Fuck the Safari Zone.
    * Defeated Koga in Fuschia City and earned the Soulbadge.
    * Obtained the Hitmonchan in the Saffron Gym (keeping as a backup for the elemental punches, I normally prefer Hitmonlee).
    * Defeated Sabrina in Saffron City and earned the Marshbadge.



7-24-19

    * Missed a Level 10 Tentacool on Sea Route 19. OHKO'd
    * Missed a Level 30 Horsea on Seafoam Islands. OHKO'd


7-25-19

    * Flew to Pallet Town and approached Cinnabar Island from the north to avoid Seafoam Islands.
    * Caught a Lv 15 Tentacool on Sea Route 21. Named him "HentaiMon".
    * Missed a Lv 15 Tentacool on Sea Route 20. OHKO'd
    * Caught a Lv 34 Ponyta in Cinnabar Mansion. Named him "RnbowSMASH" (Rainbow SMASH. It's obviously an MLP ref with a bit of Hulk thrown in).
    * Defeated Blaine at Cinnabar Island and earned the Volcanobadge.
    * Caught a Lv 23 Magnemite in the Power Plant. Named it "HowDoUWork" (A reference to ICP, yes I know but it's memeworthy).
    * Defeated Giovanni at Viridian Gym and earned the Earthbadge.


7-29-19

    * After spending several days level grinding in the Cinnabar Mansion
    * I defeated my Rival outside Viridian City on the way to Victory Road.
    * Caught a Lv 38 Ditto on Route 23. Named it "GooeyLewis" (As in Huey Lewis & The News). Of note: This Ditto had transformed into my overpowered Raticate and was posing a serious threat to my team. An Ultra Ball did not even come close to catching it. I had once before been presented with the opportunity to capture a Ditto with a Master Ball, and considering this is the second the last opportunity to capture a Ditto, I took it with the Master Ball.
    * Caught a Lv 26 Geodude in Victory Road. Named it "RockBottom" (A rock pun, and reference to the fact that it is both a disappointment and the last pokemon I will ever catch in this game.)


8-15-19

    * After spending countless hours leveling and entering the arena with a team of around Lv 50, I took on the Elite Four.
    * LORELEI was my most dangerous opponent, not having a solid strategy for dealing with her Ice Types, but through a combination of Splinter IV's Thunder and tanking fights with Steve Winwood, I made it past her defenses.
    * BRUNO was an absolute push-over. HarderDodi basically destroyed them all with Fly and Drill Peck and the two Onixes I had GaryByusei use Surf.
    * AGETHA was also fairly easy as her combination Ghost/Poison types were all weak to RickGastly's Psychic and Psywave.
    * LANCE was taken down by Splinter IV using Thunder on Gyarados and then GyariBusey Blizzarding his other three dragon types down. The final Dragonite was defeated somewhat cheaply (read: brilliantly) by exploiting a glitch in Gen 1 AI. I brought out RickGastly and he kept using Barrier (his Pyschic type move) which allowed him to be easily finished off without risk. (I learned this trick from Twitch Plays Pokemon, btw)
    * RIVAL was defeated by a combination of my entire team. My feared nemesis Alakazam was a pushover, and none of his other Pokemon really presented much of a challenge for me. His Venusaur was two-shotted by GyariBusey using Fire Blast twice, while Venusaur charged a Solar Beam that he never got to use.
    * My other party member who I never used once, was RainbowSMASH, but I'm glad I had a backup on hand.
    * Winning Team: SteveWinwood (Blastoise), GyariBusey (Gyarados), Splinter IV (Raticate), HarderDodi (Dodrio), RickGastly (Haunter), RainbowSMASH (Rapidash)
    * Play Time: 51:00

Just popping this here to bump this.

I DID IT!

Full accounts on the main post record, but I managed to beat the elite four and didn't lose a single Pokemon who faced them.
