I FORGOT TO MENTION THIS IS POKÉMON EMERALD LMAO I doubt anyone remembers this, but almost two years ago almost down to the exact day, I posted a thread for a Nuzlocke I was doing that randomized everything and multiplied opposing trainers' levels by ~1.7x (e.g. the Level 5 rival battle becomes Level 9, etc.) Over the past few days, I've revisited the idea with the intention of actually finishing it. I've also added a small twist - every Pokémon's types, learnsets, and abilities are also randomized. Also did not want to do a Nuzlocke because of this twist. I'm going to go a bit more in detail about how everything works for those who are interested - Spoiler: Randomization Details - First off, as I mentioned, every trainer's Pokémon was multiplied by around 1.7x. I might have messed up the EXACT number since it's with a slider but in order for the randomizer to do this, I had to multiply them by 1.35x, then again by 1.3x. The sole purpose of this was to make the Champion's ace Level 100, which did end up working as I had hoped. - Every Pokémon's type combination is randomized and typically kept similar across evolutions. If you have a Fire-type for example, then evolve it, it might be pure Fire or it could have an added type like Fire/Dark. - Every Pokémon's level up learnset is changed. The moves a Pokémon learns will usually match one of their types, but not always. Something that is Steel/Ghost will normally learn Steel and Ghost moves, but there's still a chance it levels up and learns a Grass move for example. TMs were also randomized and it was randomized what could learn them. - Trainer Pokémon were randomized. Most trainers will have one central "type" themed around them, and every Gym will be pretty realistic in that each of its trainers will specialize in the same type. Both these and the randomized wild Pokémon will try to match the BST of the Pokémon they're replacing, so that wild Poochyena you find cannot be randomized into a Moltres, but a Caterpie would make sense. - Lastly, every Pokémon's color palette will be partially randomized. These will somewhat be based around what type a Pokémon is, but not always. Some colors that match a type aren't very obvious, and some are very similar to one another, like for example both Water and Ice could be blue, so there's no dead giveaways. With that out of the way, I'll mention that I'll be posting the actual gameplay itself gym by gym. I've completed this challenge already, but will just be using this to split up my posts. That means that there will be no images though unfortunately. Hope you guys enjoy reading, first post including the starter choice -> first gym will go up shortly!
