Are you ever going to release part 3 of your Uranium nuzlocke, or did you forget you started that?
Oh, I 100% forgot I started that and am 100% not going to continue it. Honestly it was a mistake to start a Nuzlocke when what I was really interested in was exploring the new Pokémon. And there were external factors, like the game basically didn’t function on Mac OS when it was released (not sure if that’s changed) and it was a hassle to change operating systems whenever I wanted to play it.
So how goes the Uranium Nuzlocke?
…gonna be honest, I kinda forgot I was doing that… things got pretty busy around here for a while. Miiiight resume some time in the next month?
Seeing that you did a post about Pokemon Uranium, have you ever heard of or played Pokemon Reborn or its sister game Pokemon Rejuvenation? These games also play with darker themes and provide an additional challenge of 18 gyms. They also added the mechanic of interacting with the environment through field effects, Terrain abilities and expanded on them greatly to create many interactive fields from forests to icy surfaces, and even a chessboard. Would you consider doing a post about them?
Well, I’ll finish this one first. But maybe? We’ll see.
I’m playing a Nuzlocke on Pokémon Uranium. That didn’t stop being a thing that is happening, I’ve just been doing some work on another thing that might become a thing at a later point in the great sequence of things. Anyway these are the things that have been inflicted on me:

You said you have a Uranium Nuzlocke going; I just wanted to let you know that there is a functional mystery gift feature. I’m not sure how it interacts with nuzlocke mode or if this promotion is still running, but they were distributing a shiny jerbolta (which is actually just sonic the hedgehog) and two items, I believe a destiny knot and a sachet? I’m interested to hear how your nuzlocke progresses regardless of whether you get these gifts or not!
Good to know; I’ll see if I can get it to work. I think they were having problems with their online features recently due to… I think a DDOS attack or something? Not sure what it was or whether they’ve fixed it. But we’ll see.
And, uh… you really don’t want to know how the Nuzlocke is going. I mean, I’m going to tell you anyway, but it’s… not pretty.
So what the $#!t is Pokémon Uranium?
fan-made bootleg Pokémon game, some eight years in the making, that was
completed and released a few weeks ago. It runs on what I think is some
sort of homebrewed version of the Diamond and Pearl-era game engine hacked
together in RPGmaker, with a number of general ease-of-use improvements like
multiple save slots, key rebinding (I mean, if you’re playing Pokémon on your
computer you can do that anyway through your emulator software, but it’s still
nice), and a built-in Nuzlocke mode with a few optional rules. More
importantly, Uranium features a whole new region, Tandor, inhabited by about
200 fan-designed Pokémon as well as many of our old favourites. It’s not
unique in concept, of course, but to my knowledge it is, by a significant
margin, the most ambitious project of its kind ever to actually see completion,
which sort of makes it worth talking about, and probably even giving some level
of playthrough commentary.
