My Journey is Over. or Try again.

I lost. Here’s a list of all the pokemon that have died in the process (and how)

  • Bear Bait (Oshawott) – Gym leader Cheren manhandled him
  • Bueno (Herdier) – Gym Leader Roxie rocked his socks off and  2 hit KOed him
  • Broccoli (Growlithe) – Random encounter with the Train bosses. They ran right over him
  • ironman (Darumaka) – random battle, nothing glorious
  • Chester (Sandile) – while digging underground, crushed by a magnitude 7 earthquake.
  • Chocolate (Tranquil) – eaten
  • Purrloin (Patchy) – Sacrificed to use Cheetoh’s intimidate  in between switches
  • Audino (Audino) – didn’t have a nickname
  • Jerry (Minccino) – couldn’t beat a marill. Turns out being a round mouse is better than being a grey one
  • Billy (Zubat) – bug bite (literally)
  • Hardy (Woobat) – again, sacrificed for the good of the many
  • Cheetoh (Sandile) – kind of just stood around taking a beating.

a letter fro Luah

Dear Mom, 

I wonder if this is what you wanted for me. I’ve been beaten, and my pokemon are dead. I’ve only been away from home for 9 hours and 58 minutes. I only have three badges. And now, as a stare up into the heavens, I hear them calling to me to try again. Just because I whited/blacked out after battling, I shouldn’t give up. So here’s what I’ll do. I’ll go find a stick and rock. I’ll use that stuck and rock to catch myself a few more random pokemon. And once I find 3 pokemon that I’m satisfied with, I’m going to continue my challenge. I’m going to prove to you that I can do that. I’m not going to give up and go back to Professor Juniper and ask her to give me a new starter pokemon; I know I can. but I won’t. I’m going to prove to you that I CAN DO THIS.

A second letter to whoever…

… I don’t understand why I’m on this journey anymore. I don’t know what I’m doing. I just sent my mother a letter of intent saying that I’d stick to it. If her goal was to get rid of me, then she certainly achieved that. I don’t think I agreed to go on this journey because of her, but if it wasn’t for her, then why did I go on this journey? I’m so confused. Why I did I decide to leave Aspertia 9:58 ago? I miss my bed, I miss my friends, I miss rachet… I’m scared everytime I turn a corner I’ll see a trainer that wants to kill me. Actually, that want to kill my pokemon. Actually, to be honest, I’m most anxious everytime I enter a new route because the first pokemon I might run into will be a woobat. I just don’t understand…


Luah vs. Rachet

10 year old girl sets out on a journey away from Aspertia City!

Gosh, it’s so weird being away from mom. When she first said “Good luck on your journey!” I didn’t think she was serious. This must be some sort of abuse or punishment – forcing me to fend for myself in the wild giving me nothing more than an Oshawott 


I mean, he’s cute and everything, but I feel like he’d get eaten up by a Beartic or an Ursuring. My mom probably gave me Oshawott because she wants me to get eaten by a bear. For that every reason, I named Oshawott Bear Bait. We’re getting along quite well. His water gun attack is pretty strong. 




Once I set out on Route 19, Bianca, my mentor, taught my how to catch pokemon. My first thought was, “Pshh I know how to do this. I’ll show her up!” Right after I ran into the tall grass, some shadowy figure appeared! Some random fight music started playing out of nowhere and a text bubble appeared around my waist leve (I was so confused… I felt like I was star on the show Yu-gi-oh). The text said, “A wild Purloin appeared!” My first thought after that was, “Why do I need a pokedex if the text box is going to tell me about the pokemon anyway?” Long story short, I caught the Purloin, named her Patchy, and continued on my way.

I finally arrived at my first town. FLOCCESY Town. This peculiarly haired guy named Alder approached me saying that he likes to watch intriguing people. I should be careful around him; I think he might be a stalker. Nonetheless, because I am 10 years old, I’m going to follow him because he wants to train me and teach me about pokemon. My journey isn’t exactly ideal, and i have no idea what my mom wants me to learn, but I’m sure that I can trust a 6 foot tall, cut, red mohawk hair guy who wears a frock and sandals. He tells me I should deliver my extra town map to my best friend (and future husband) Rachet. He’s sorta like my rival, but I’m confident that we’re just both playing hard to get right now. I hope he doesn’t turn out like Alder. 

Pidove So, I decide to take a stroll through Route 20 because Alder tells me that Rachet is on in the Floccesy Farm, just a little beyond 20. This time, while walking through the grass, I find a Pidove! And since I was hungry, I caught it and decided to name it Chocolate. Sadly after trying my hand at cannibalism, Chocolate didn’t satisfy my tastes. I brought him to the pokemon center and he was alright again. I should go find real chocolate.

I found Rachet! I had my first pokemon battle!snivy_and_lillipup_by_meltymole-d3b5fl8fdfadsfsadf

okay, so essentially, Rachet’s Snivy was teasing this little Lillipup. I’m a 10 year old girl and I will not stand for humans and pokemon abusing little cute puppies! So went over to that little snivy. kicked snivy in the tail, and then Chocolate used Gust attack and I won my first pokemon battle. I wasn’t REALLY trying to win the battle… It just kinda happened. Then I realized lillipup was hurt (go figure), so I decided I should catch him instead. I named him Bueno

I finally handed over the extra town map to Rachet, and instead of him saying thank you, he said, “Great Battle, we should do it again sometime.” I was like.. WHATTT You mean you want to see me again? *blush* I was thinking about letting mom know about all the stuff that’s happened in the 1 hour and 30 minutes of my journey but I figured she wants me gone anyway. 

Until next time!



Pokemon Black 2: Nuzlocke Challenge take 2

I’m going to start playing pokemon black 2 tonight with the nuzlocke challenge rules. If you’re unfamiliar with the rules, here are the general rules: 

  1. Any Pokémon that faints is considered dead, and must be released.
  2. The player may only catch the first Pokémon encountered in each area, and none else. If the first Pokémon encountered faints or flees, there are no second chances.
  3. I must nickname each pokemon for the sake of forming stronger emotional bonds.
  4. A black out/white out is considered to be “game over”, even if there are Pokémon left in the PC.

As an additional task, I’ll be blogging about my adventure on here – makes the game seem more realistic and fun. While this game might be considered a time-waster, I have also prepared an important to do list for this summer. At the very least, this blog post won’t have lost all its value.

find a job, plug into CBC, student life tour, visit my girlfriend, visit ryan, support summer missionaries, buy a guitar, read changes that heal, hang out with friends! 

So, who is a friend that wants to hang out? 🙂 Well, I choose you!
