with spare games and boredom galore i was looking for a new way to play and found this i am going to just C+P the post
Hey guys, many of you out there enjoy a little challenge while the play through of the Pokemon games. If you are looking for something even more challenging and skillful, look here.

The Nuzlocke challenge was all started and created by one person, who records his adventures here.

These are the only rules that are compulsory:

Nickname all Pokemon
Catch first Pokemon on each route
Faint = Death


Here are the rules you may obey throughout the storyline:

1. On each route/cave/town/tower/dungeon you may only catch one Pokemon and this Pokemon may MAY ONLY BE THE FIRST POKEMON you see!
2. If you don't have any Pokeballs to catch the first Pokemon you see, tough **** you arn't allowed to catch it.
3. If a Pokemon of yours faints in or out of battle YOU MUST RELEASE IT INSTANTLY AND NEVER USE IT AGAIN. Or you can put it in a box labeled 'Dead' as a memento or for post game/once you finish the challenge.
4. If your party is full and you catch a Pokemon, you may send it to your box as a backup, incase one of your Pokemon faints, it can be replaced (and insanely grinded).
5. For the hard outs, no using any items in or out of battle (and yes, that includes antidotes, this also includes hold items. You can still use Pokeballs but you must find them, not buy them). For the easy going people, you may use any items, but only those you find, you cannot buy any items from anywhere. You can choose whether you can use revives or not.
6. You MUST nickname all of your Pokemon to grow a bond with them. This will also break your heart when they die (hehehe).
7. If you wipe out (all party Pokemon faint) then you must release/put them in box.
8. If all of your Pokemon die, then you must start again, you lose!
9. If doing this on HG/SS, and a Pokemon is left on 1 health because it 'survived the poisoning' it is dead.
10. Have fun! Post your adventure in this thread, and even make comics to go with it if you wish!
11. You must have your battle change option set to set, not shift. This means you can't change out your Pokemon before your opponent does.


This challenge is meant to be harsh and fun at the same time. Try not to grind too much and make sure you don't just train your starter. Also, please post here whether you are taking the challenge or not, i want to know how everyone is doing. Please also post updates, with your current party, levels, boxed Pokemon, dead Pokemon and how far into the game you are.

Good luck to everyone taking the challenge and please post your updates especially if you are doing some comics. And any questions just post here and i'll get back to you. I've probably forgotten some stuff so i will edit this post soon. Good luck! (also mention what game you are playing on and what rules you are using. Just copy mine.)
All of this post is not mine exept for the first line and thisbut have fun and good luck to those who take the challenge

Good luck to you too, Fullerfast,

I'll fill you in on my progress, and it hasn't been great, mainly because for the most part I refused to grind completely . Anyways, here's my team currently, I'll list anything I feel is worth saying about them and any extra moves they've learnt:

Oddy/GLOOM, Lv22 (Nullet Seed)
Sergio/CHARMELEON Lv22 (Mega Punch)
Chuck/BEEDRILL Lv20
Kemp/MAGIKARP Lv5 (caught with old rod @ vermilion)
Diggy/DIGLETT Lv 19 (Rock Tomb and, accidentally, Attract)
Martin/SPEAROW Lv14
(Only Oddy, Sergio and Chuck have been leveled up at all)


I've beaten Misty (and most of the trainers between Cerulean and Vermilion), and I am about to board the SS Anne.

Here's the death toll, and I'll list the circumstances surrounding their deaths, where they were caught, etc:

Barry/PIDGEY Lv 3
-Route 1 (Lv 3)
-2nd Pokemon caught
-Fell a few steps from Nurse Joy in Viridian Pokecenter from poison induced during the battle with Chuck. I have since forgiven Chuck.

Daisy/PIDGEY Lv 8 (Yes, she lasted a little longer)
-Caught outside Pewter (Rt 2), after Gym battle (Lv 3)
-Fell when caught by surprise by a trainer's Rattatta on the way to a Pokecenter, it was a critical hit quick attack...

Steve/SPEAROW Lv 6
-Route 3 (Lv 6)
-Died from poison caused by Poison Point

Zuzu/ZUBAT Lv11
-Mt Moon (Lv 8)
-I didn't like him... wanted a geodude... sacrificed for a revenge kill on a rocket grunt... I'm not proud...

Oden/ODDISH Lv15
-Route 5
-I thought he could take one of Misty's water pulses, but he was a lightweight and I resorted to plan B; Oddy... Who evolved YAY

Yeah, so that's it. I do feel that the game has been unusually unkind to me in this playthrough, resulting in so may casualties, but my teams getting okay, now so I'm not complaining (also, most of the pokes that died, I didn't have much time to get attached to...)

SOISOISOI!-Pidgey lvl8

I hate to say it but I got a Game Over. My rival raped me in Cerulean City. Going to try again tomorrow. On the plus side I got a shiny Zubat in Mt. Moon.

Just so you know, my edited rules are:
-No items during battle
-No running from wild battles
-This one was a pain in Rock Tunnel

Those are the main ones...

I've also got some bad news. Kemp the Karp didn't make it.

Ooh, and I beat my Rival on the SS Anne, loads of trainers and Lt Surge with no casualties.

Also I agree, the comics on Nuzlocke.com are absolutely epic!

No, Geodude is the only NEW guy in my party. Had a bit of a scare when Diggy was critical hit down to 1HP, though that's the closest I've had to anyone fainting.

EDIT : Just kicked Giovanni's ass in the Game Corner, at the cost of Oddy... RIP.
I'm now in the Pokemon Tower and have evolved Dave, the Eevee into a Jolteon and given him Shock Wave, to replace Oddy.

Sorry you lost your Beedrill, tough break. I know it sounds weird, but Chuck, my Beedrill, is a rock.

arceus most people think that in the begining but you learn that towns are really friendly and inviting having you stay by most towns
the worst game in my oppinion to start this over in is ruby saphire and emerald 2 routes are wasted instead of the just one

he he no update really yet bubbles just is lv 13

I have decided to go green with my pokemon game i will use majorly berries and other natural sources of healing going im not going to use the bitter herbal medicine so im just going to grind here for galactic in the valley windworks

Made it onto the SS Anne. Most of my Prospective catches seem to faint before I can catch them. @.@ Still I managed to add one new person.

I might as well list my tweaked list of rules.
Pokeballs can be bought-Only five per mart.
Items may be used out of battle-only ones that I find.
If the first Pokemon I encounter on a route has already been caught, I am not allowed to catch it.
Pokemon cannot be revived at all or used once they are gone. (Which really makes it hard because I am going to have to put HMs on my team Pokemon)

Team
FLUFFYKINS-Ivysaur lvl 23
LOL69-Nidoking lvl 22
CATURDAY-Meowth lvl 19

Death
Same as last time. By the way I really miss CRACKERS my Spearow.

I'm gonna play on my Yellow Version, old school style on my special Pikachu GameBoy Color. :D

My rules -
- If you have Pokéballs when you enter a route, the first Pokémon you see is the ONLY one you can catch on that route, ever.
- Safari Zones have the same rules. You must run from every other Pokémon if you did/not catch your first in that zone.
- Gift Pokémon are allowed for use.
- Pokéballs, evolution items and HM are the only items that can be used.
- You can pick up items for the sole purpose of selling them and can only buy Pokéballs, no other balls. (may use Masterball)
- Battle style set to shift.
- Must Nickname all Pokémon with loving pet names.

So far I have -
-Sparky/Pikachu Lvl 7 -- start
-King/Nidoran M Lvl 4 -- Route 2 (lucky!!!)

Trying to raise Kin's level to get him out front. I might try to battle Gary again.

I'm pretty sure that's the standard set of rules, although I thought you could only catch one safari zone pokemon

I was specifying and interpreting which of the extra rules I was using.

Sparky -- Pikachu -- Met at lvl 5 from Prof. Oak -- lvl 10
King -- Nidoran M -- Met at lvl 4 on Route 2 -- lvl 10
Talon -- Pidgey -- Met at lvl 6 in the Veridain Forest -- lvl 11
Clide -- Manky -- Met at lvl 3 on Route 22 -- lvl 6

I went into the veridian forest to possibly train more and hopefully catch a Caterpie. I instead found Talon.
I beat Gary on route 22 and almost lost Sparky. I had to bring out King to finish off his Eevee.
On my way back I encountered Clide and caught him. I almost lost him during a training indecent where I pushed him a little too hard.
I'm training my team to lvl 10 and heading back into the Veridian forest. I should be able to make it through this time.

actually i might have to disagree in fr/lg there are the route signs in different areas showing each is a sererate part of the safari zone like in sinnoh most routes are divided between towns each of those are different areas of the route alowing you to catch one in each area
thought of this when i was going to eterna city the route is the same on both side of eterna forest but the lvs and pokemon available are different

still no update I feel guilty for leaving my team alone for a while while i play explorers of sky (just rented it so i just wnat to play a little)
will play the game today though i refuse to be one of the trainers who abandons their pokemon
to all who want to catch legendaries repels are your friend having no pokemon battles in a legendaries domain will allow you to have the legend as the first encounter

Okay, so here's my team so far, (Don't judge me on the movesets, I haven't really thought any of this through at all). I have just beaten Giovanni and am going to challenge the elite 4;

Dave/JOLTEON
-Thunderbolt
-Thunder wave
-Toxic
-Substitute


Sergio/CHARIZARD
-Flamethrower
-Seismic Toss
-EQ
-Counter


Chuck/BEEDRILL
-Brick Break
-Twineedle
-Cut (can be replaced but is just filler)
-Pursuit (again, if you can think of anything better, just say)


Kelpy/SEADRA
-Surf
-Ice Beam
-Twister (filler)
-Water Pulse (filler)


______________________________________

With Chuck ( {beedrill} ), its mainly just to kill weak psychics, ie Alakazam; however if you can think of any improvements to these sets that I am able to apply, just say, and I'll take that into consideration.
______________________________________


What I'm really asking though, is what to put in the last two positions, I have access to;

Aerodactyl
Gyarados
Lapras
Hypno
Snorlax


I'm thinking Aerodactyl and Snorlax, as a special sponge, as my team REALLY can't take hits very well and Hypno doesn't have access to Thunder Wave, Substitute, Counter or Seismic Toss, which basically constitute all of the good moves apart from psychic, that it has at its disposal. I would use Haunter but she passed as did Diggy (Diglett) and Kingy (Nidoking).

But what do you think? I used a Bolt/Beam Lapras in my last playthrough and she absolutely rocked (so did Electabuzz, but that's besides the point); but I already have Seadra, and I don't really want to drop any of my core 4, because they've been with me the whole way through, and I kinda think It would defeat the point to drop them in favour of some new Poke, who I have to grind up to level.

So... Who should I use?
