gen 5 is my least favorite generation by far. i don't care for most of the pokémon, or the region, really, as i recall. but i do love n. and i'm hoping nuzlocking it will make me fall in love with my stupid dog.
in an unfortunate interesting turn of events, i have all four gen 5 games. i've picked black because zekrom seems more suited to n.

high hopes for the pupper
2vs2 lvlcap1411 14 vs 12 14
actually wiped me out the first time. restarted and leveled better and he still brought them both to critical. i didn't take the monkey on account of i really don't like em.
lvl8 f modest
i don't hate the cat, but she's already been boxed for being useless
lvl9 f lax
love rl pigeons, i think i can find it in my heart to love this ugly little guy too
lvl10 m mild
hhhhhh i almost repelled to find drilbur but i took a chance on woobat. and so, stuck with the rock
did you know the yellow bit is an ear?
not nearly as cute anymore but this boy is carrying the team
"for ages, they have helped trainers raise pokémon" oh T_T
hopefully this will help with the constant almost dying
spoiler alert: it didn't
2vs2 lvlcap2018 17 vs 18 20
poppy did alright but retaliate really fucked baji up, even without the double bp
murdered by lenora's watchog
a shame to lose my starter so early, but she was having a real hard time taking hits
lvl15 f hasty
this is my baby and i love her
man i talk a lot of shit about gen 5's shitty dex but sewaddle is perfect actually (and surprisingly strong. i'd assumed they were caterpie equivalent)
i love my blanket child so much. grumpy teen is one of my favorite genres of pokemon
i lowkey kin swadloon
3vs3 lvlcap2322 23 22 vs 21 21 23
a scary crit took poppy to 1 hp but other than that, no problem
with the bianca fight in the route 4 gatehouse, that makes three mentions already of the dangers of battling indoors. i can't think of this ever being mentioned in another gen. why is this a running theme?
lvl15 m modest
no strong feelings on the man, but i appreciate his type coverage
i switched seth (w/ eviolite) into a blitzle, only to be hit by a surprise flame charge. very scary, but she took so little damage despite the 4x weakness. what a beast.
murdered by a rando's timburr
"hmm he's at 50%, should i switch him out? nah, ground's not weak to fighting."
i forgot about dark ;_;
whoops. gave poppy dig to compensate
lvl20 m quiet
what an ugly guy. almost died to sandstorm cause he didn't want to stay in the ball
i don't want for psychic coverage, and his movepool isn't doing anything cool, unfortunately. boxed
still ugly but he's definately pulling his weight. and he's about to destroy elesa
lvl20 f rash
a neat little guy, nice to have a ghost. but i think i'm guaranteed a litwick encounter later and i know which one i'd prefer
yamask is cute and sad but cofagrigus doesn't do much for me (plus i don't need anymore physical tanks)
lvl25 m hardy
i do like the turtle. and it's nice to have a water attack
like i said, physical tanks all the way down.
murdered by n's scraggy
had to switch marmu out (because i forgot roost takes away flying ._.) wasn't expecting feint attack. ohkoed her.
3vs3 lvlcap2727 27 26 vs 25 25 27
holy shit volt switch. if i was the sort to restrict healing in nuzlockes this would've ended me.
wish lyle was here
i prefer swadloon but who am i to hinder her emotional growth (she comes out her shell when she evolves by friendship?? T_T)
marmu critted them. i dunno why i didn't switch out my super luck scope lens bird for this but here we are. i'm not too upset, honestly
lvl20 m quiet
i do like whimsicott (particularly post-fairy, i'm heavily biased), but boxed for now
lvl19 f quiet
cute, but she'll probably be switched out soon for stat reasons
lvl24 f hasty
not much to say about the duck. we won't see her again unless something terrible happens
lvl24 m quiet
i don't particularly like vanillite & co., but i'm glad i didn't miss what i assume is the only real chance for ice to timburr
lvl23 m docile
pokéball mimicry in pokémon confuses me, evolutionarily speaking
murdered by a gym bro's drilbur
3vs3 lvlcap3131 31 31 vs 29 29 31
we were killin it til froyo got outsped and one shot. i, uh, forgot ice is weak to rock
murdered by clay's excadrill
all those levels for naught
still a beast, now with extra mustache
lvl25 f naughty
too small, too cute, not klink. what more could i ask for?
i know its probably the same as always (which is to say, too high) but holy fuck the spawn rate in caves fucking sucks. this is absolutely miserable. i would kill for a cleanse tag
sad. i'd've had a hard time fitting them on my team but i love deerling
lvl28 m quirky
there he is. i worry about him. a lot of the team's kinda glassy
murdered by a rando's sigilyph
not my girl D: this is what i get for watching tv while nuzlocking
well, there's room for that deerling now
3vs3 lvlcap3535 35 35 vs 33 33 35
was worried jo was gonna go the way of froyo, but poppy was already overleveled to put in. she pulled through tho
