The Official Nuzlocke Challenge


  • Any Pokémon that faints is considered dead, and must be released (or boxed, never to see the light of day again).
  • You may only catch the first Pokémon encountered in each area, and none else. If the first Pokémon encountered faints or flees, there are no second chances. (Can be adjusted to ban duplicate captures.)
  • Trading is disallowed, but the reasons following this clause are allowed. Egg trading is okay, same thing with Pokemon that can't have eggs. (optional) Trading simply for the purpose of evolution is perfectly fine.
  • You must nickname all of your Pokemon. (highly recommended)
  • A black out/white is a "game over," even if there are Pokémon left in the PC.
  • You must change the battle style to SET.
  • After the first wild Pokémon was caught, you must release your starter.
  • You may not heal outside the use of Pokémon Centres and moves such as Softboiled.
  • You may not heal outside of healing items and moves such as Softboiled.
  • You may not heal outside of battle.
  • You may only have (whichever number you like) Pokémon Centre visit per town.
  • You may not use held items.
  • You may only buy a (whichever number you like) amount of PokéBalls per PokéMart.
  • You may only use PokéBalls.
  • You may not use/catch legendary Pokémon.
  • Make comics of your challenge and have fun! (strongly recommended)
These are the most common ones, but feel free to adjust your challenge to fit you. Use as many optional rules as you like.
