COMMUNITY SINNOH WEDLOCKE EVENT

Welcome to the new Challenge Event! In this event, we'll be all competing in beating Diamond, Pearl or Platinum with the most romantic of the rules - Wedlocke rules! Let's take your special ones to an unforgettable adventure!

General Rules:
  • This Challenge can only be played on Diamond, Pearl or Platinum.
  • All Pokémon and items used for the challenge must be obtained without hacking or trading. (You can trade to evolve and for evolution item)
  • You have to start the new game and beat Cynthia to finish the challenge.
  • On top of that you'll compete with other players to get the most points during the run.
  • To make sure you've read the rules, you have to confess your love to Cynthia.
  • Image or video proof is recommended, but is not required. We all expect everyone not to lie.
  • This challenge will run February 14th to March 15th 2020

Wedlocke Rules:
  • When a Pokémon faints, it must be released forever (or boxed permanently). It is considered to be dead.
  • You can catch or obtain only the first eligible obtainable Pokémon you encounter in any route or area, with exceptions being made based on the Pokemon's gender. Fail to catch it and you get nothing for the area.
    • Genderless Pokémon cannot be caught. Ever. (Unless playing a Rainbow Wedlocke see below)
    • If you have 1, 3, or 5 Pokémon in your party, you ignore any Pokémon encounters whose gender you have an uneven number of, e.g. if you have just one male Pokémon and two female Pokémon, you cannot catch any more female Pokémon until the count is even again. If you have an even number of each gender or playing Rainbow Wedlocke, this does not apply.
  • All Pokémon must be nicknamed.
  • Your Pokémon are "partnered" with each other and fight in pairs
    • Only one male and one female can form a pair (unless you're playing Rainbow Wedlocke), and once they do, it lasts until one dies or is released.
    • Each Pokémon on your team can battle only alongside its partner, if it has one. Switching Pokémon out in battle is allowed, but ONLY for the Pokémon's partner.
    • If a Pokémon dies in battle, its partner must avenge the fallen Pokémon or die along with them; switching to any other Pokémon is forbidden, regardless of circumstance. (In the case of Double or Triple Battles, you may have to make exceptions. Do what feels right.)
    • If a Pokémon's partner dies, it can gain a new one that doesn't already have a partner. (either from a PC box or a wild Pokémon)
  • You can add more rules (like Dupes or Shiny clause) if you want.
Rainbow Wedlocke:
Rainbow Wedlocke is special type of Wedlocke, where the nature of the Pokémon shows its preference.
  • 8 natures like the opposite gender
  • 6 natures like only males
  • 6 natures like only females
  • 3 natures are counted as 'any' and can be paired with anyone and any genderless Pokémon that have the applicable nature
  • 2 natures are known as 'aces' and can only be paired with other Aces or genderless Pokémon of the compatible nature, these can be switched too but cannot be switched out
You can decide which natures fall into each category, or if you're lazy you can use list I rolled about 2 years ago for one of my runs:

Question: how about genderless mons with "opposites" natures? I mean, how are they supposed to be handled?
Good question. I would probably pair them with another genderless Pokémon.

Aight then. If it's allowed to be handled differently, I'd rather pair them up with "any" Pokemon (read: those with "any" natures) instead. Hopefully it's gonna be okay since this is my first Rainbow Wedlocke.

Now that I said that, might as well sign up~

I'll play as a girl named Mina (from Minako Aino a.k.a. Sailor Venus' civilian self). Her rival's going to be Kunzite, Sailor Venus' "counterpart" in Sailor Moon series' Dark Kingdom arc.

I have a question... Why does beating gym leaders and team galactic grunts give points, won't they be the same for everyone who beats the game?:o
Although not with grunts because they can be skipped I suppose x3, but that makes it unfair because I think Platinum has more grunts!:O
Regardless, I'm in for a challenge :)

I think it's totally okay.

It's there so you won't end up with that many negative points. And to force you not to skip grunts, which can lead to accidental deaths.

Pokécommunity Sinnoh Wedlocke in Pokémon Diamond

PART 1

So I finally got to write an update for my own run. I started the game as female this time and my ID ends with 2, so I'll be picking Pythagoras the Turtwig as my starter. I also play Rainbow variant, because I hate myself.
I should also mention I kept all my notes in an Excel sheet to keep track of all the possible pairs and points. I'll be referring to it this whole update, so here it is:
Spoiler:

As you can see, I had no luck in forming a pair all the way to Route 204. I was kinda happy with the pair of Euler the Bidoof and Uhlenbeck the Budew. I call them Bidew. As you can see, I went with famous mathematicians as nicknaming theme. And I found that there are a lot of female mathematicians I've never heard about.

So Bidew was pretty nice for this part. Bidoof took care of most of the opponents, with only exception being Geodude and Onix. And Budew's Poison Point was the only reason I beat Barry and some other trainers. I was ready to taky on Roark with this pair alone, but then caught Riemann the Onix and Pythagoras got someone to love.

WIth these two pairs, Roark had no chance. I've beat him using only Pythagoras. But I also almost got heart attack when Roark's Cranidos landed a critical hit.
After that I backtracked and got some more Pokémon and was able to form a new pair - Gauss the Abra and Lovelace the Zubat. I stopped at Valley Windworks to train and that's all for this update.
