Ace and Aspie, for life and light!
Update 5-17: The night before last I cleaned out the Lumiose gym, intentionally getting every question wrong in order to grind. Laid waste to Clemont. Last night my Mega Charizard Y one shotted Valerie's entire team with Drought boosted Flamethrower! Ended the night at the entrance of Frost Cavern.

I'm trying to get a good streak in the Maison. First run ended at only 49, so I'm switching up my team a bit.

Last team used Garchomp, Greninja, and Mega Gengar.

So now I'm planning a new team:

Mega Kangaskhan - Fake Out/Return/Crunch/Power-Up Punch
Jolly nature, 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe

Greninja - Surf/Ice Beam/Grass Knot/Extrasensory
Timid nature, 4 HP/252 SpA/252 Spe

Aegislash - Shadow Ball/Shadow Sneak/Sacred Sword/King's Shield
Quiet nature, 252 HP/252 SpA/4 SpD (yes, I got this straight this from smogon)

So hopefully here I can still play offensively like last time while having a little more bulk.

I beat the last gym two nights ago. This morning I turned my game on and my save file is corrupted. *flips table*

You are wonderful for playing this game.
Is that your first time playing it or a replay?

It's a replay. I put over 300 hours into it when it was new.

I just started my game over. I picked Chespin again and named my character Amour again. If Chespin had been male, I would have named it Clemont, but it's a girl so I named her Bonnie!

Edit 8/4/22: I decided to make it a Nuzlocke, largely because I want to get some Shiny Charms in my various games and shiny hunt like crazy until Gen 9 comes out. After getting Bonnie the Chespin, my first catch was a Pidgey I named Air Force 1+. After that I got a Fletchling I named Bryce in Santalune Forest. I caught a Bunnelby right after the forest, and when I was offered a Farfetch'd for it in Santalune City, I took that trade, knowing it would be handy in the Bug type first gym. Quacklin handled itself quite well.
Route 22 added a Azurill named Juvia to the team. On Route 4 I accidentally fainted a male Combee.
When given the choice, I chose Professor Sycamore's Charmander, naming it Leon with an accent over the E.
Route 5 got me a Furfrou. Not what I would have chosen. I named it GTShole as a reference to all the people asking for rare Go exclusive versions of Furfrou on the GTS.
Strangely enough, on Route 6 I almost had a TPK in a double battle against a pair of Furfrou. Guess I learned my mistake in disrespecting the species. Unfortunately Air Force 1+, Bryce, Juvia, and even Leon fell before these two demonic dogs. What made it saddest is Leon hit level 16 in the battle. I said to myself "if he survives, at least I'll have a Charmeleon." Sadly he did not.
I went back to Camphrier City, buried my dead, put GTShole begrudgingly in my party, and went back to Route 6, where I caught a Kecleon of all things, which I named Boy George. (+10 to anyone who gets that reference.) I stopped there because it was 1am and my battery was dying.

Edit 8/22/22: So I just wiped and started over. Going with a music theme this time.
Pidgey is Aerosmith
Pansage is Beastie Boyz (and yet I've repeatedly run into Pikachu trying to get through Santalune Forest, but I get the Grass Monkey)
Bunnelby is Good Bunny (instead of Bad Bunny)

After almost a month's break, I decided to switch from a luck based Nuzlocke to an even more luck based Wonderlocke! Good Bunny has been replaced by a Litleo, and Beastie Boyz by a French Dunsparce named Insolourdo. After soloing the Santalune Gym, Aerosmith has been swapped for A French Zigzagoon named Zigzaton and my Chespin was swapped for a French Bunnelby named Sapereau. I then caught a Skitty outside Santalune City and traded it for a French Bidoof named Keunotor! Apparently the Kalos region is still popular in France!

Yesterday, I was EV training Sigilyph on Route 12 in X. I attracted a horde of Mareep, and one happened to be Shiny. After taking out the other four, I caught him in a Repeat Ball, but was not pleased to learn he was Adamant, despite not liking Shiny Ampharos much. I then saved the game.

Thank you for playing this game

With Scarlet and Violet coming out soon I realized I needed a ribbon collector that would survive all the border patrols. I went back to Sapphire and caught a Pikachu knowing this is the most likely Pokémon to be allowed to pass (I also caught a Girafarig that I hope to evolve). I collected ribbons in Sapphire, Pearl, HeartGold and then ended the night collecting a couple in Y. Will finish up getting some ribbons in OmegaRuby, Sun, Shield, Brilliant Diamond and Legends Arceus tonight.

I noticed that while challenging the Elite 4 that the teams of these trainers are pretty terrible. They only use 4 each and are quite underwhelming. Diantha is obviously head and shoulders above them but a clear unspectacular group. Knowing Malva is a former Flare executive makes her place weird but Wikstrom in his armor makes me think he came from the Galar region as it looks like the Galarian armor talked about.
