Pokémon Crystal: Nuzlocke Challenge #00 - Look what I found!

Oh hey, look what I found! All this started when I was sorting through some boxes to rearrange the storage in both my home office and bedroom. During this shuffle, I found my Nintendo 64 transfer pack with a copy of Pokémon Crystal in it.

This spider bite that got infected has plagued me since late December but after a recent swab inside of the weeping wound, they have diagnosed a staph infection.
