      It’s so addictive for some reason

      It’s fun and addicting but when the Pokémon your routing to get to the end dies it’s sad.

    The brick break sound effect during Larry’s gym battle had me laughing 😂

    I love that Eelektross is in Scarlet and Violet just so it could be in this run. It's so underrated with its awesome move pool.

      I know right, it’s amazing

      I accidentally found one in my play through and it surprisingly carried my team through the end

      Happy that it made it all the way to the end

  • Ricardo Santos Marques

    1 thing you forgot, you setup bulk ups so even though your attack was +6, your defense was also +6, meaning you would hit yourself for neutral damage if confused.

      ​@Nightmarish Nightmare agreed

    • Bonez DaLucario
      Bonez DaLucario Month ago +1

      @Antlerboy yeah but it would still equal the same amount of damage if he didn’t have bulk up

    • Pisa
      Pisa Month ago

      @Ricardo Santos Marques because of its stats. Pawmot has a much more higher attack stat than its defense stat

    • Ricardo Santos Marques
      Ricardo Santos Marques Month ago +1

      @Antlerboy are you replying to me? Didn’t you use 6 bulk ups that raise your attack and defense equally? How would it do more damage.

    • Antlerboy
      Antlerboy Month ago

      @Dalton Woodard nope pluck from wattrel would eat it

  • Alpha Stoutland
    Alpha Stoutland Month ago +41

    Raichu definitely was a mainstay on the team, though I did like how most of the team got their moments to shine. Always enjoy watching these challenges! 😁

    • Alpha Stoutland
      Alpha Stoutland Month ago +1

      @NDHolme149 yeah, I feel like Pincurchin did more for team support than Toxtricity did. That Toxic Spikes helped tremendously, and surviving to land a Poison Jab helped against Turo.

    • NDHolme149
      NDHolme149 Month ago +1

      Like he was only useful against penny

    • NDHolme149
      NDHolme149 Month ago +1

      Because I think toxtricity was just in the box the whole time

  • Gamer Gabe 4.0

    That Raichu… who knew the OG Pikachu would have carried so much. The encore, the charms, the reflect… perfect for that endgame. What a carry.

    • DXAB91

      Just like in basketball, the assist is what pushes you over the edge to victory

  • Antônio Moreira

    I really didn’t expect magnezone to be this helpful in the run. Thanks for bringing the power out of my favorite electric-type! :)

    • ncinsanity96

      did his magnazone not have levitate? i was confused why he was afraid of ground moves

    I’ve tried to watch other Nuzlockers, but Axl just has so much character and great narration skill. I love him.

  • Vesdus

    That Pawmot death was the saddest one yet. Truly a shining star on your team. He will be sorely missed.

  • Pachi Zuppi

    The power of friendship really saved this run in so many occasions.

  • Angry Flamingos
    Angry Flamingos Month ago +9

    For someone who is only useful for intimidate, luxray seemed to last quite a while.

  • Ryan Choi
    Ryan Choi Month ago +2

    Miraidon for MVP. Even if it didn't fight until the very end, don't forget that it was Miraidon who carried you on its back the entire way

  • Helente
    Helente Month ago +4

    Eelektross carried so hard, is nice to see this kind of underated pokes carry runs

  • Aly Shrum
    Aly Shrum Month ago +4

    I really enjoyed the changes in nickname depending on the form for Rotom!

  • Sariix
    Sariix Month ago +7

    Excellent video! MVP was certainly Raichu, what a beast through and through.
    I've actually been slogging my way through steel only run in Inclement Emerald. Maybe someday you'll have a video for that! Haha

  • z3ro.qw1rtz
    z3ro.qw1rtz 9 days ago

    Rotoms death crushed me, they were such a great team member, absolute MVP

  • David rawtinez

    Thank you for sticking with the new games, the rest of the nuzlocke community is just ignoring this game, or just getting to the Greeta fight and not actually completing the game

  • SlumpyWumpy
    SlumpyWumpy Month ago +7

    My favourite Leccy type is always gonna be Luxray. Purely because of Mystery Dungeon. There’s a boss fight where you fight Luxray and a bunch of Shinx and it stumped me for weeks as a 13yr old, but god I loved it. Made me want a Luxray on my team, not knowing that myself (shinx) would eventually be allowed to evolve into one.

  • Devan Kranz
    Devan Kranz Month ago +2

    I know it’s pretty recent, but I have to say Boltund is one of if not my favorite electric types. You can’t go wrong with the goodest of floofers!!

  • Joshua Smith
    Joshua Smith Month ago +3

    Would be crazy if they ever made Pluck take leftovers in future games

  • JasonMADX
    JasonMADX Month ago +1

    I love MonoType, keep doing it!
    Recommendation: Instead of using, for example, Raichu with Flying TeraType, limit yourself more to Monotype and catch a Pokemon of another type with Electric TeraType, like Gym Leaders do! Increases the amount of usable Pokemon and doesn't make a Pokemon (like Raichu) turn into a type that theoretically breaks the challenge.

  • Nathan Nebres
    Nathan Nebres Month ago +7

    My favorite electric type is the Pichu line, a little unsurprising lol but also have you done a Water Nuzlocke for Pokémon Violet and if not i would love to see one

  • JayTFrost
    JayTFrost Month ago

    37:31 Magnezone was the MVP. It carried so much and helped a bunch, he was and is such a GigaChad, RIP Magnezone

    Man, it’s actually insane that they gave a Nasty Plot Pikachu right off the bat, especially if you can find a thunder stone before the first gym

  • Gabe Williamson

    My favourite Electric type is probably the Shinx line, they're so cute 🥺 And SxperPotion's videos have enamoured me so much to Rotom-Frost

    Looking forward to an all grass type nuzlocke somewhere in the future.

    Bellibolt with screens is OP, I used one for my first playthrough. I was surprised none of your mons were using screens.

  • Pika Rose
    Pika Rose Month ago

    Jolteon is my absolute favorite Electric type because he's super fast and with Terra being a more niche hidden power I love running a Water terra Jolteon with Volt Absorb and she is slaying out there.

    Ampharos. Good special defense, good bulk, and awesome coverage. Although its frail in defense it has always been my favorite electric type.

    Loved the nicknames man! Washington, Zaptres and SteelyShocks were my favorites, and I'm definitely going to steal them. Great job!
    My favorite electric type is Eelektross, which I was glad you used. However the only time I liked its sprite was in gen 5, the way it's swimming horizontally now really doesn't look appealing to me :(

    It's a very tough one but I'm gonna have to go with Tapu Koko, Electivire and Toxtricity are close though. Electric doesn't actually have that many Pokémon compared to most of the other types

    I honestly have 3 electric favorites. 1. The Magnzone line. 2. Mirandion. 3. Sandy shocks.

    For future Nuzlockes, you can dodge the affection hax by boxing your members when you make sandwiches.

  • Bianca Armstrong

    I'll say it once and I'll say it again. My favorite Electric Pokemon is Ampharos. Ampharos is such a cute pokemon plus it's shiny is pink, pink and fabulous! Not just that this pokemon reminds me of my youngest sister I love very much. I always name my female Ampharos after my sister, Cassidy. The reason why is because in Ampharos's Pokedex entry that it's light is so strong and bright that it can be seen from space and can help people and pokemon that if they are lost they can find it's light and be safe. That's why when I think of my sister Cassidy she has a strong and bright light that can bring my family together reminding us we will never be apart. Ampharos will always hold a special place in my heart cause it reminds me of my youngest sister I love very much.😊

    Electric Type... Zeraora. Not only is it a very fast Pokemon, but he looks like a badass.

  • Joey Young
    Joey Young Month ago

    Love my bouncy boy Regieleki
    And it feels like Terastalizing into a type different from the Nuzlocke type kinda goes against the spirit of the challenge, as you arent 'using an electric type' anymore. But of course you have to play as you like!

    EERIE ERIC Month ago +2

    The next video you should make should be an all rotom play through of scarlet

  • (Insert clever name here)

    By the way, you can get a Pawmi at the beginning of the game, before Miraidon/Koraidon, at the end of the bit of land overlooking the sea, just before where you fall off the cliff. It's a fixed spawn too, so it'll be there every time.
    (Edit: 1:18 yeah, that one.)

  • Brandon Green
    Brandon Green Month ago +1

    Saddened at the lack of Pachirisu, but you had so many electrics already and getting use from Pincurchin kind of makes up for it.
    If you do a full Electric Rodent playthrough when those are released, i fully expect justice for The CHAMP

  • TheSphero
    TheSphero Month ago

    My favorite Electric-type is Galvantula; kaiju is my favorite theme team, and not only does it make a good Kumonga, its movepool is actually really good for making the team more viable in general. Sticky Web, as most 'kaiju' mon are relatively slow, solid special attack pool compared to most team options favoring physical attack, and some interesting support moves. Plus its just adorable, like a big fluffy puppy with more legs!
    Magnezone and Iron Thorns are close seconds; Magnezone is just a solidly strong mon. Doesn't really have a wide movepool, but what it does, it does well. Iron Thorns is just cool.
