The Nuzlocke To End All Nuzlockes

Well howdy! I know what you must be thinking, "Jeez it's been almost a year since this guy told us about his Nuzlocke Challenge in Pokémon FireRed". And you would be correct, it's almost been a full year...

Now the last time I was talk to you about my Nuzlocke Challenge was here. So have a brush up on what's been going on if you can't remember (I know I certainly forgot!).

I have some very awful news! I got a new phone... which means I lost all my Nuzlocke data :'( So that's the end of that. There will be no more posts regarding my FireRed Nuzlocke. This will be the final one. To continue with the bad news, I dont have any new screenshots for you to look at either. To be honest, I didn't get very much more done in that file before I got my new phone. Here's all that happened:

--- Cynder evolved into Charizard and became AWESOME
--- Penny (Gloom) started to annoy me having only grass moves
--- Sonic, my lovely Golbat, took a massive hit from a Koffing and died
--- I caught Tentacool to replace Sonic, and started slowly training it up

And that was it, the uninteresting, bitter end to my challenge...

I feel really bad that it had to end like that because I really liked writing those posts. I do love to go back and read them, plus the photos make it so much more fun!

What will I do next you ask? Well at the moment, I'm working on my Eeveeloution party. I've become so obsessed with egging... my worst fear will be my Espeon because not only do I want an egg move and good IVs, I also want Espeon's hidden ability - Magic Bounce. That's gonna really make the egging difficult. And yes, I do have an Eevee from Dream World :D Took me a while to get it but I did, and it's female ^_^

As you probably know, it's just over 2 months until Pokémon X and Pokémon Y are released. Now while I love the new things like Pokémon and attacks and abilities etc, one thing I'm looking forward to are the new training mechanics (because I'm a geek like that). So far I haven't heard of much except that there's supposed to be a new way to raise your pokémons' EVs outside of battle. It sounds interesting!

And to finish of this post, I've one last thing to say. You'll notice that this is my 99th blog post. Meaning my next one is number 100! Yes, I know... I had 82 posts last year and only 17 this year so far... I feel bad that I haven't written more but maybe when college starts back and I focus, I can set time aside each week to write. As for what I'll write about next time... I'm still working on it. But I hope that you'll all enjoy it :D

Elite Bibi's New Twitter

Hey everyone! As you can guess from the title of this post, I'm gonna let you in on a little secret...

I've made a new Twitter account for my blog. So if you give it a follow you can get all the updates about new posts, but you'll also get access to new pics and tweets.

So here you go...

I'd be very grateful for a follow :)

Now that that's out of the way, how about something else? Remember I was telling you about my summertime plans? Here's what I've been up to. I watched

How I Met Your Mother, all 8 seasons
Doctor Who, seasons 4-7
Torchwood, all 4 seasons
Digimon, season 3
Yu-gi-oh, season 1
Adventure Time, season 1

As we speak, I'm watching Arrow. Yeah... that's a lot of TV. But I have been doing other things too. I started making a rug. It's a great thing to do while watching these shows. I almost have half of it done. There are 6688 stitches in 88 rows... it's a long process but once I finish, I'll have a nice new wall-hanging :D Another big project I took on over the summer was cleaning out my bedroom. Yes, it was a huge project... But I succeeded. I know by the sound of it, I've done nothing with my summer... Well, I've done plenty really but however much of that was really constructive is debatable.

Oh did I tell you I was in Dublin on Monday? I went on a Foróige trip with young people from Kilmallock. Yes, I am a volunteer, and have been for almost 3 years. We went to Dublin Zoo for the day; it was fantastic :D Unfortunately, I won't get to work with Foróige much next year on account of my final year in college. I must start organising stuff for next year; accommodation and the like. Well, I have my house reserved, just need to sort some final details. I'm looking forward to moving in with Lisa and Lucy ^_^

I thought about something over the last few weeks which I might actually do... I decided to write a letter/essay about where I would like to be in the next three years. Some personal stuff got in the way of me writing it earlier but now I think I'll finally do it. It'll be cool to look back and see whether or not I achieved what I wanted.

Now it's time to go to the kitchen and check on the cats... Our little ginger kitty probably needs some attention ^_^ Talk soon!
