    NobleJanobii's Randomized White 2 Potterlocke

    So I stumbled across a new type of nuzlocke called a Potterlocke. It’s a Harry Potter themed nuzlocke that had an interesting ruleset that I wanted to try. Since I still have yet to finish a game of White 2 or Black 2, I’m going to try my hand at that again with this. We’ll see how it goes. Below I’ll put my specific rules as well as the Harry Potter rules in spoiler tags. Each Pokemon’s house will also be listed in their stats if they’re on my party. The game is also randomized but only the Pokemon are randomized this time, not the moves or stats or anything, so we’ll see how this goes. So without further ado, let’s get it started!

    My Rules:
    Spoiler:
    1. You may only catch first pokemon you encounter on each route
    1. If a pokemon faints, it is dead and must be boxed
    2. Everyone must be nicknamed.
    3. Advanced dupes clause is in effect. You cannot catch a pokemon you have already caught in this game.
    4. In addition, an emphasis will be placed on using pokemon I have not used before, so if you encounter a pokemon or a member of its evolutionary line that you have already used in another game to beat the E4, you get one more encounter on that route to try for something else.
    5. Shiny clause is in effect.
    6. Gift clause is OFF.
    7. Tally House Points based on the rules stated further below.


    House Sorting and Specific Rules:
    Spoiler:
    1. Once a Pokemon is sorted into a House, it can only fight alongside others from the same House! Pokemon from one House cannot be switched out for Pokemon in different Houses.
    2. After you complete the challenge, sort Houses from best/most helpful to the least.
    3. Each new Pokemon caught is sorted depending on its nature into one of the following Houses:
    Gryffindor
    * Pokemon that are: Brave, Bold, Impish, Rash, Hasty, Relaxed are sorted into here
    * They are chivalrous, they may switch in to help other houses once per gym badge.
    * They are cocky, they must play as if they are on Set mode, and in a trainer battle cannot switch out before allowing their opponent at least one chance to attack them.
    Hufflepuff
    * Pokemon that are: Hardy, Docile, Naive, Modest, Gentle, Jolly, Bashful are sorted into here
    * They are unafraid of toil, only Hufflepuff Pokemon are allowed to use HM's. HM slaves are allowed ONLY if an HM is required to proceed and no Hufflepuff can learn it
    * They are fair, they cannot use status moves in-battle.
    Ravenclaw
    * Pokemon that are: Calm, Quirky, Sassy, Quiet, Mild, Timid are sorted into here
    * They are creative, only Ravenclaw Pokemon are allowed to use TM's.
    * They are elite, they cannot use attack moves when they are Not Very Effective.
    Slytherin
    * Pokemon that are: Lonely, Adamant, Naughty, Lax, Serious, Careful are sorted into here
    * They are ambitious, only Slytherin Pokemon allowed to use held items.
    * They love toadying, their levels must not be higher than next gym leader's lowest-level Pokemon.


    Eras of Magic:
    Spoiler:
    • Dursley Era (before 1st Badge/1st Trial)No magic allowed! Don't use any Special moves and no sorting yet, so Pokemon can all fight on one team.

    * Philosopher's Stone (after 1st Badge/1st Trial)Sorting begins! From here on out, Pokemon can no longer switch out for those in different houses.

    * Chamber of Secrets (after 2nd Badge/1st Kahuna)A basilisk is running around petrifying students! Any Pokemon afflicted with the SLEEP condition in battle must be boxed at the end of the battle, and cannot be taken out until the 3rd gym badge is obtained.

    * Prisoner of Azkaban (after 3rd Badge/2nd Trial)Sirius Black is on the loose and all Hogsmeade trips are banned! The PokeMart cannot be used until the next gym badge is obtained.

    * Goblet of Fire (after 4th Badge/3rd Trial)Pick a Triwizard Champion from Hogwarts. This Pokemon must lead in every trainer battle, including the Gym Leader's. If this Pokemon dies, pick another Champion.

    * Order of the Phoenix (after 5th Badge/2nd Kahuna)Time to recruit members for Dumbledore's Army! Take some Pokemon out from the box and train them. The team for the 6th gym battle must have at least 3 Pokemon that the 5th gym's team didn't! Umbridge's embargo is in effect, NO items can be used during this segment. That includes TM's and evolution stones! (The sole exception is using balls to catch new Pokemon.) Pokemon centers can still be used. Slytherin Pokemon, as members of the Inquisitorial Squad, are exempt from this rule.

    * Half-Blood Prince (after 6th Badge/4th Trial)If one of your Pokemon dies, you must pick another Pokemon in your party and must be boxed at the end of the battle, and cannot be taken out until the 7th gym badge is obtained. No Slytherins can be in the party until the next gym badge is obtained.

    * Deathly Hallows Part 1 (after 7th Badge/3rd Kahuna)You're camping in the woods and isolated! After getting the 7th badge, you may use the PC box once to choose your team of Pokemon. Thereafter, you cannot use the box for this entire segment. (The exception is boxing/releasing dead Pokemon.)

    * Deathly Hallows Part 2 (after 8th Badge/Lusamine(SM) or Hapu (USUM))The four Houses must unite! (yes, even Slytherin.) Pokemon can now switch out for those in other Houses. If possible, face the Elite Four with at least one Pokemon of each House in your party.


    House Cup Point Tallies:
    Spoiler:
    Pokemon Get - 2 Points (5 points if shiny)
    Evolution - 3 points
    Survive a GL battle on team - 5 per Pokemon
    20+ Levels on team - 10 points (awarded at end of run)
    Honorable Death - 3
    Land killing blow on GL’s, Sage’s, or Ghetsis’ Ace - 1 point
    Survive to end of run off team - 3 per Pokemon
    Be on team that ends run - 15 points
    After each era rank pokemon during that era:
    Most helpful - 10 points
    2nd Most - 5 points
    3rd Most - 3 points

    Haha thanks! It's been a weird one thus far that's for sure.

    Update 1:

    Received Riley the Chandelure as my starter. She only knows special moves and confuse ray this first gym is gonna SUCK.

    Caught Tiana the Nincada on route 19. She promptly died the next battle I used her in to a Gyarados using Thrash.

    Managed to get through the trainers in Route 20 by only using Confuse Ray which is soooo annoying.

    Caught Morris the Servine on Route 20. Raised him to level 7 before proceeding.

    Headed to Floccasey Ranch and battle Hugh. His magby didn’t stand a chance.

    Caught Junio the Maractus. Raised him to level 8 before proceeding.

    Completed the little Ranch quest and got the TM for Frustration.

    Grinded Junio and Morris to level 12 then proceeded to the gym. Junio handled the gym trainers no issue.

    Let Morris lead for the Cheren battle. Cheren sent out Nidoran Male. Crit Peck nearly killed Morris. Swapped into Junio who finished off the Nidoran Male but got poisoned. Cheren sent out Cherubi. Junio finished it off with Pin Missile.

    Got the TMs for Work Up and Return.

    And with the first gym beaten, everyone was sorted into…. Ravenclaw! So now that they can use “magic” I’m going to raise Riley up before proceeding, but for now here’s the updated stats:

    I don't seem to be having much luck with bug types this run XD

    The Philosopher’s Stone:

    Went back and raised Riley to level 12.

    Made it to Virbank City.

    Headed to Virbank Complex and got my first encounter, Brandon the Beedrill. Brandon is a naughty nature so he was sorted into Slytherin. +2 points for Slytherin

    Started to raise him but he died to a Fraxure using Dragon Rage. RIP Brandon level 10 to 13. That not being able to switch thing really made it hard to grind him anyway.

    Raised everyone else to level 18 and then proceeded to Virbank Gym.

    Morris and Riley took out the gym trainers easy. Morris lead in the gym battle. Roxie sent out Elygem. Morris was able to 3HKO it with Leaf Tornado. Roxie sent out Unown so I switched to Junio. OHKO with Pin Missile.

    Got TM for Venoshock

    +1 to Ravenclaw for Junio landing the finishing blow
    +15 to Ravenclaw for Junio, Morris, and Riley surviving the gym.
    +18 to Ravenclaw for Junio, Morris, and Riley being the 1st through 3rd most helpful

    House Cup Totals:
    Spoiler:
    Ravenclaw: 74 points
    Hufflepuff: 2 points
    Slytherin: 2 points
    Gryffindor: 0 points

    Thanks! Yeah it's okay. I was considering boxing Brandon anyway since unfortunately Beedrill don't have great movepools in the BW era. When I caught him his only move was Fury Attack which is not a great pull and Twineedle isn't much better either.

    A lot has happened in the past few days so here's your update!

    Chamber of Secrets:
    Spoiler:
    Did the Pokestar Studio stuff and fled as soon as I could.

    Encounter Neo Plasma grunts at the pier. The randomizer made their trainer classes cops how amusing.

    Got HM 01 Cut.

    Headed off to Castelia City.

    Went to Route 4 for an encounter. Caught Laio the Seismitoad. As a serious nature she is sorted into Slytherin. +2 points for Slytherin.

    Gave Laio the Sea Incense. Raised her to level 18 before proceeding.

    Went to Castelia Sewers and caught Kai the Marill. As a quirky nature, he is sorted into Ravenclaw. +2 points for Ravenclaw.

    Kai evolved into Azumarill. +3 points for Ravenclaw.

    Caught Aster the Kabutops in the Relic Passage. As a gentle nature, he is sorted into Hufflepuff! +2 points for Hufflepuff.

    Caught Oblia the Zwelious in Castelia City. As a bashful nature, she is sorted into Hufflepuff! +2 points for Hufflepuff.

    Switch Oblia onto the team for Kai.

    Aster fell asleep to a Cleffa while grinding. Swapped him off the team for Kai.

    Encountered a shiny Audino while grinding. Successfully caught Breana the Audio. As a bashful nature, she is sorted into Hufflepuff. +5 points for Hufflepuff.


    Also swapped her onto the team for Kai.

    Raised everyone to level 30 then continued on to the gym.

    Burgh leads with a Monferno I lead with Riley. Riley OHKO with Hex. I kept her out to handle the Aron, which was a 2HKO thanks to Sturdy. Riley then faced off against Nidoqueen as the ace. She got poisoned early on but was able to take out the Nidoqueen with a couple flame bursts easy.

    Most helpful: Riley +10 points to Ravenclaw
    Second most helpful: Oblia +5 points to Hufflepuff
    Third most helpful: Laio +3 points to Slytherin

    3 Ravenclaws on GL team: +15 to Ravenclaw
    2 Hufflepuffs on GL team: +10 to Hufflepuff
    1 Slytherin on GL team: +5 to Slytherin

    Riley landed killing blow to GL’s ace so +1 to Ravenclaw

    Ravenclaw: 105 points
    Hufflepuff: 26 points
    Slytherin: 12 points

    Yeah I may wait until later into the game but we can certainly try. We might've gotten lucky with my randomized Venomoth since Venonaut appear where I caught that Venomoth whereas in this case Audino don't usually appear in Castelia Sewers but maybe we'll get lucky?
