Greetings to you all, lads, lassies and 'lockers! It's been a good while since my first (brief) attempt at a documented Nuzlocke run, so I thought I'd give it another go.

This time, we venture onto more familiar grounds - it's Pokemon Fire Red Omega, a Drayano hack that uses Fire Red/Leaf Green as a basis.
Also, as you can see in the title, it'll be a Monolocke Challenge instead of a vanilla Nuzlocke, where I'll only be using Ground-Type Pokemon.

There are two goals I want to set in this run:
1) Make it last.
Basically, I want to have a longer lasting run than my previous attempt, Toxic Donuts. Ideally I would like to complete the Challenge, but if I do fail it'll be after I've gotten at least two Badges.
2) Make it entertaining.
Since a lot of you put a great deal of effort into making a narrative on your runs, I was inspired to do the same. SO I've created a little narrative for this. Any comments/criticism to improve the story would be hugely appreciated, since I'm not exactly the best writer in the world.

The following run contains infrequent strong language and violence.

Now, the RULES.

And now, without further ado, the moment you've been waiting for...!

What a nice start!

I really enjoyed the way you decided to write leaving your starter behind -- it's so different from what other people do, and that's usually to just cut them out completely. Plus, your mom isn't just home alone! I always felt bad that there was nobody to keep your mom company in the PokÚmon games. [Well, except X and Y. But I haven't finished those yet.]

There's a sentence or two in there somewhere that seems awkward, possibly because it's not using the right word? It's this one, commenting on the Oak tutorial of the first rival battle.
Quote:
 
Don't where, sir. We've got this. Ellie, hit 'em with a Quick Attack!

Is that supposed to be "worry"? I thought I'd mention it just in case, but everything else looks nice.

I noticed you've been using colors for PokÚmon text. In this sense, I didn't really mind it. Often, it drives me nuts though. Something you should keep in mind when using different text colors: try not to use blinding colors. Keep in mind that there are multiple different themes for this forum, and nobody's is the same. [For example, I use Tea Garden.]
Also; readability. Certain color combinations are impossible to read without highlighting the text.
Some Examples



Long reply is long. But I really enjoy the story so far! Keep up the great work, and good luck! :)

I had no clue there were Barboach in that pond. Huh.

I'm liking this so far! It's got a mystery element; it's either been a while since I've seen a run with that element, or I haven't seen one. I don't remember which.

Oh, Ellie's text is fine; it's when you start getting into some of the more interesting color combinations that it starts to become painful. At least, I think. Oh, you're definitely not alone about updating late at night. I'm a night owl, most productive in the early morning hours. Like, often times I update at 1 or sometimes 2 AM.

Hrrrm... now, here I thought Guy's dad was Giovanni (like, duh, right?) but this update throws a new wrinkle into things. Evil or dead, which would be preferable, I wonder?

Regardless, good luck :o I'll be following.

Brock is done for it. And after all he did have some info for our hero. It may not be too much, but maybe a visit in Cerulean will clear some things up.
Skipper is cool atually. And I wonder what that is that's following the crew around.... Colm seems to know something here....

YOU UPDATE SO FAST! I was going to reply to the prologue but I blinked and BOOM! That's not a knock on your update pace, by the way. But just...wow!

Ooh, interesting. Terence was the first Badge to get? There's a story to be had there. And I was right!

I'll probably be able to reply better now that I caught up. But congrats on beating Brock though you definitely had a good advantage. Let's hope Misty will go well.

Hungover Pokemon? That's a first. :V

>word goes round fast in Pallet
I mean, it better. It's basically a town of literally three houses.

sigh...Poor Skipper. It's not great to be the victim of a failed catch. You should have probably tried to heal up anyway. You wouldn't have lost anything and probably have Skipper survive.

I do think Tara and Guy's reconciliation might have been a bit rushed maybe. I think there was some opportunity to explore their relationship but of course, it's your run.

Wow, nilly. This here is a fancy run. The story looks good and is really coming along nicely.

You got some good catches, and I like the way you started things off. Truly tragic that Skipper had to go. I had high hopes for him. This run must seem a lot scarier now. There's only so many ground types to go around.
