The Hexath'locke is simple.

It is a Nuzlocke variant that spans six main-series Pokemon games. It adheres to all of the rules of a traditional Nuzlocke with a couple of unique clauses thrown in.

The basic principle is that a Nuzlocke run is intended to add challenge to the game but also to make you care about your set of pixels, via nicknames, drama etc. What could make you more attached to your team than going through trials of fire and then coming through to do it again? How much more heartbreaking would it be to lose your Kanto starter three generations later in Sinnoh?

---------------------------------------------------------------------

The Rules:
You may only catch the first Pokemon you encounter in an area (route, city, cave etc.)
You must nickname all acquired Pokemon.
If a Pokemon faints it is considered dead and must be boxed in 'Heaven'.
When beginning a new generation you may transfer up to two (2) of your former surviving team members.*
Transfers can be selected from surviving 'Hall of Fame' team members from ANY previous generation
Transferred in at same evolution as previous generation (Blastoise remains a Blastoise) but @ 1/10th of its previous level, rounded down (i.e. lvl 55 -> lvl 5, lvl 68 -> lvl 6).
Will only know species base moves.
*If you survive to the sixth generation there is an exception to the transfer limit that allows you to transfer all of your surviving starters.

For each Pokemon you transfer into a game you must forfeit 2 routes of potential catches (Determined by a RNG before start of that generation).
Legendaries are fair game assuming they are your first encounter in the area.
Some additional clauses may be used to enhance the game play. (Dupes, Shinies etc.)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Since this run is going to be one continuous story-arc I am going to be playing the games in a more likely chronological order:

Kanto (FireRed) > Hoenn (Ruby) > Johto (Heart Gold) > Sinnoh (Pearl) > Unova (White) > ???

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
