Nuzlocke: In Which Touhoumon 1.8 Is Attempted
- Page: 4
Mt. Moon and Beyond!
Time for Chen analysis.
- Chen: Evolves at level 25, remains pure beast type. The Glass Cannon.
- Attack Chen: What? You mean the basic chen WASN'T?
- Technician Chen: Balanced?
Before we train any further, lets pop into Mt. Moon and get our catch there. Squeak! What's there?! I throw a pokeball blindly into the dark. Zing! Lets see what we got here...c'mon out, lil gal! ???: H...hi...hi...She sinks into her...uh...shell? Is that a BUCKET? What on Earth...ah. Fire/water, annnnd that is indeed a bucket. She's also a right physical wall. Well, I dub you Acadia! Acadia:◊ Um...um thanks...I think... Lets see...she has Guard Armor. That blocks all critical hits. Excellent for a nuzlocke, where crits can spell certain death. Also worth noting is that she has Astonish-which is now 50 power. Holy crap? On our way out of the cave, I grab up TM 09. Normally, this would be bullet speed. Now, its a 60 power faith move called Decision, that can never miss. Unfortunately, nobody in my team can learn it.
- Kisume: The Troll. Evolves at level 23, fire/water type.
- Technician Kisume: Offensive Troll?
Before we proceed, we need to get some training done. And before we do that, we have some game mechanic exploiting to do. See, like every Touhoumon game I've seen so far, there are Tewi running around in Route 3. Those Tewi, like every Touhoumon game I've encountered so far, have a 5% chance of holding a Lucky Egg. Leif learned Thief. I'm sure you see where this is going. About an hour and a half later... Tewi Count: 15.
Mura:◊ Hey, Digi! Yes? Mura:◊ Look what I can do! He proceeds to use Nature Power. And suddenly, a battle. Huh. Nature Power acts like sweet scent outside of battle. Weird. Explains the animation it gets in-battle. Also, I had somebody-Thank you Saffron!-Explain Nature Power and its like to me. Nature power works similar to Low Kick or Grass Knot, except that instead of using weight, it uses something called 'cost.' The problem with weight is, all these girls weigh very similar values. So a weight-based move is pretty useless. Instead, every individual girl has been assigned a cost. I have no idea what this number is. And I don't really want to check a guide all the time, even if I did. I'll be getting rid of Nature Power as soon as Mura has a better option. Nya:◊ Are we done talkin' about this boring stuff? Because I've got quick attack now! I can kill my own type super speedy like! Uh...very nice, I guess? I better watch out for other Chens. They'll have that too. Nya:◊ I also learned Rapid Spin, and Bite. Rapid Spin? A miasma move now, 40 power. Bite is beast type, I was right. Its still 60 power. Leif:◊ Hey! I can do that too! She proceeds to gnaw on my ankles. Uh, yes, thank you Leif. That's a very good Bite attack. Etta:◊ And I have now learned Aurora Beam, so that I might weaken my opponents before they strike. Acadia:◊ I um...I got that spin move too...and water gun. Oh yay, plain old water gu-WOW. 60 power now? I love buffed moves. x3 All right, enough training. Lets get a move on.
Mt. Moon is...pretty uneventful so far. Leif:◊ But I found us some nice stuff. Yes, you did! First was that Power Heart, by that Hiker on the first floor. And then you found another hidden just before our fossil choice! Those are going to come in handy, I know it! Kish:◊ Which Fossil didja pick? Uh...I dunno. I grabbed one. They were the same names they usually have, so...Anyway, Kish, I think I'll make you an ATokiko. But not until you get wing attack at 23. Otherwise, you won't learn any new moves until 27 in your attack form. Kish:◊ Fair enough. I can wait! Oh, hey. It looks like those fossils are not so unchanged.◊
