We’re approaching the final stretch of my Nuzlocke run through Pokémon Y, and man, is this game making me work for it. Most of the battles at this point in the game are nail-biters; in fact, the episode above mostly consists of two such agonizing encounters. Adding to that, the game’s randomized Wonder Trade system certainly isn’t making things any easier. In fact, one might say it’s making it much, much harder, both statistically and emotionally speaking. In this episode, my relationship with this horrible exchange reaches its breaking point.
