Writing out those big updates actually took 1-2 hours, which kind of defeated the point of trying to save time... haha. It was kinda fun, though, and hopefully it will be an entertaining read.
I'm going to have the "Introduction" video up tonight talking about the Platinum Nuzlocke, with a link to this topic and the Marriland Forums, and Part 01 of the video series itself will be up sometime either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. (I'll post what time I decide on exclusively on this topic a couple of hours in advance, so it might be a good idea to watch it. ;) )
Haha, that video sure did look like it brought a lot over here. It's been so long since I actually have seen this thread, I forgot about what actually happened! D: Well, I guess I'll get to experience everything fresh AGAIN! That doesn't happen often lol xD
Quick question: did you make any progress on the Nuzlocke after putting it here? Just curious :3
Hey Marriland, I have not really read all the posts because I am looking foreward to the videos, I am already a little spoiled because I have seen your current team and such. (And adoring the Pokedex Pro pictures O_O) Anyway, in your video you said it's all kinda demotivating when people go complain about the item use and leveling. Well I would say, let them talk as long as you are enjoying yourself! I personally think only 1 rule you took on in this challenge I am somewhat "meh" about being you having to release them when they are over your max level restriction. You want to go really hardcore so I respect it but I wouldnt have mind if you said "I can't use him/her untile the restriction is lifted" so after a gym battle or something. Seems a bit silly to have them let go (also roleplay wise in my mind atleast) over such a thing. But then again this DOES make every move you make vital so! I am looking foreward to seeing the vids! Good luck on the remaining parts you still have to play!
Well, given that it's been a day, I think it's time to confess something: I am probably the reason why this thread got locked.
I understand that Devin has a life, and that he can't devote all of his time to stuff like this, and I defended him against the people who said otherwise.
However, I also did link people to this thread during the final days of the HeartGold Wedlocke, when they were asking what would come next after that. The purpose was just to educate them about the existence of this Nuzlocke. In theory.
In practice, I probably attracted a few trolls to this thread. I am sorry for doing this and deeply regret it, but I hope you understand that this was not my original intent.
And in other, happier news, I made some fanart for this series about a month ago and put it on DeviantArt. Find it here!
