『 THE POTTERLOCKE 』


Welcome young wizard and witch, to the 『 THE POTTERLOCKE 』 challenge!
A nuzlocke variant based on the the wizarding world of HP, where you get to sort
your captured Pokemon into houses according to their natures and each house has
different rulesets, boons and banes. Will you accept the challenge?




『 i. nuzlocke rules 』
  • You may only catch the first Pokemon you encounter in a route.
  • DUPES and SHINY clauses are on.
  • You must nickname all your captured Pokemon.
  • GIFT clause is off.
  • Once a Pokemon faints, it is considered dead and must be released or permaboxed.


『 ii. house assortment & house specific rules 』
  • Once a Pokemon is sorted into a House, it can only fight alongside others from the same House! Pokemon from one House cannot be switched out for Pokemon in different Houses.
  • Each new Pokemon caught is sorted depending on its nature into one of the following Houses:


  • Pokemon that are: Brave, Bold, Impish, Rash, Hasty, Relaxed are sorted into here
  • They are chivalrous, they may switch in to help other houses once per gym badge.
  • They are cocky, they must play as if they are on Set mode, and in a trainer battle cannot switch out before allowing their opponent at least one chance to attack them.


  • Pokemon that are: Hardy, Docile, Naive, Modest, Gentle, Jolly, Bashful are sorted into here
  • They are unafraid of toil, only Hufflepuff Pokemon are allowed to use HM's. HM slaves are allowed ONLY if an HM is required to proceed and no Hufflepuff can learn it
  • They are fair, they cannot use status moves in-battle.


  • Pokemon that are: Calm, Quirky, Sassy, Quiet, Mild, Timid are sorted into here
  • They are creative, only Ravenclaw Pokemon are allowed to use TM's.
  • They are elite, they cannot use attack moves when they are Not Very Effective.


  • Pokemon that are: Lonely, Adamant, Naughty, Lax, Serious, Careful are sorted into here
  • They are ambitious, only Slytherin Pokemon allowed to use held items.
  • They love toadying, their levels must not be higher than next gym leader's lowest-level Pokemon.

『 iii. eras of magic 』
  • Dursley Era (before 1st Badge)

    No magic allowed! Don't use any Special moves and no sorting yet, so Pokemon can all fight on one team.

  • Philosopher's Stone (after 1st Badge)

    Sorting begins! From here on out, Pokemon can no longer switch out for those in different houses.

  • Chamber of Secrets (after 2nd Badge)

    A basilisk is running around petrifying students! Any Pokemon afflicted with the SLEEP condition in battle must be boxed at the end of the battle, and cannot be taken out until the 3rd gym badge is obtained.

  • Prisoner of Azkaban (after 3rd Badge)

    Sirius Black is on the loose and all Hogsmeade trips are banned! The PokeMart cannot be used until the next gym badge is obtained.

  • Goblet of Fire (after 4th Badge)

    Pick a Triwizard Champion from Hogwarts. This Pokemon must lead in every trainer battle, including the Gym Leader's. If this Pokemon dies, pick another Champion.

  • Order of the Phoenix (after 5th Badge)

    Time to recruit members for Dumbledore's Army! Take some Pokemon out from the box and train them. The team for the 6th gym battle must have at least 3 Pokemon that the 5th gym's team didn't! Umbridge's embargo is in effect, NO items can be used during this segment. That includes TM's and evolution stones! (The sole exception is using balls to catch new Pokemon.) Pokemon centers can still be used. Slytherin Pokemon, as members of the Inquisitorial Squad, are exempt from this rule.

  • Half-Blood Prince (after 6th Badge)

    If one of your Pokemon dies, you must pick another Pokemon in your party and must be boxed at the end of the battle, and cannot be taken out until the 7rd gym badge is obtained. No Slytherins can be in the party until the next gym badge is obtained.

  • Deathly Hallows Part 1 (after 7th Badge)

    You're camping in the woods and isolated! After getting the 7th badge, you may use the PC box once to choose your team of Pokemon. Thereafter, you cannot use the box for this entire segment. (The exception is boxing/releasing dead Pokemon.)

  • Deathly Hallows Part 2 (after 8th Badge)

    The four Houses must unite! (yes, even Slytherin.) Pokemon can now switch out for those in other Houses. If possible, face the Elite Four with at least one Pokemon of each House in your party.

I'm just wondering, with the gift clause would this mean that I could use the elemental monkeys in Black and White?

Username: LRachelR5
Game: White
Gift Clause is the ability to use Pokemon that are given by NPC's aside from your starter, since it is off, you cannot use the monkeys. Good luck on your challenge! :D

Wow this is sick. I'm currently doing a randomized Platinum Nuzlocke, but I think I'm gonna do a Pokemon Ruby Potterlocke once I finish Platinum. When it happens, I'll post here again! (should be soon, within a week)
Take a Look at my Youtube Channel! I upload frequently, mostly with Pokemon Showdown Replays w/ Post-Commentary. If I end up battling you on Showdown, and we have a great match, there's a decent chance you'll see it on Youtube there, so if you are interested, check back once in a while for a battle! I also upload LPs, you can find the intro of one here. Thanks for your time! -Ghost

Your registered :) Goodluck on your run, its very nice too see some progress already :D As a suggestion, can you add which era your in?

This sounds epic! But do 'ya know what'll make it even more epic? Merging it with a Randomizer Nuzlocke!

Man, I can't wait!

Oh, and can you explain to me this "no switching outside of your house" thing?

Basically say your Patrat was a bold nature and your Tepig was a brave nature then you could switch between them in battle because they are both Gryffindor natures, however say you also had a Lillipup on your team which was gentle nature, then you couldn't switch it with either Patrat or Tepig because gentle is a nature that is sorted into Hufflepuff house.

Pokémon White - Sorcerer's Stone Era

Nuvema Town
Spoiler:
Alright, let's see the starters! We have... Milotic, Manaphy, and... Purugly? Well this is a no brainer.

Mavis (Milotic) joined the team!
  • Gender: Female
  • Level 5
  • House: Hufflepuff
  • Ability: Technician
  • Moves: Ice Beam, Aura Sphere, Headbutt

Annihilated PKMNTrainer Bianca Gymnast Lawrence and PKMNTrainer Cheren Gymnast Marcellus (Trainer names are randomized, if you were wondering), and I sat through Juniper's monotonous ramblings!


Route 1
Spoiler:
Who's my first catch gonna be? It's a... Farfetch'd... Yay?
Leia (Farfetch'd) joined the team!
  • Gender: Female
  • Level 4
  • House: Ravenclaw
  • Ability: Storm Drain
  • Moves: Dragon Pulse, Magical Leaf, Flash, and Judgement?!

Wow, Judgement. Pretty good moveset. It'd be better if I could actually use the moves!!


Accumula Town
Spoiler:
Nothing happened here. Just N and his Deoxys. That's all.


Route 2
Spoiler:
Nothing happened here either. I encountered a Gorebyss, but Mavis killed it by accident.


Striaton City Part 1
Spoiler:
Gym Battle! But first, a Pokémon from the Dreamyard!


Dreamyard Part 1
Spoiler:
Battle. Battle. Mavis almost died. Battle. Mavis almost died again. Battle. Mavis learned Wild Charge. New Pokémon!

Leo (Ledian) joined the team!
Gender: Male
Level 10
House: Gryffindor
Ability: Cute Charm
Moves: Confusion, Psycho Cut, Night Slash, Draco Meteor

Wow. At first I didn't want the thing, but then I saw it had Draco Meteor as a move, and I knew that we were gonna get along just fine. :)


Striaton City Part 2
Spoiler:
To the Trainer School and for another fight with everyone's favorite Gymnast, Marcellus!

He sends out his starter, Manaphy. I demolish it with Mavis's Wild Charge.
Then he sends out Simisear. I decide to give Leo a spin. Simisear spams Nasty Plot, and right when Leo's about to take him out, the fire monkey uses Leaf Tornado? It OHKO's Leo... Mavis finished the thing off.

Let us all take a moment of silence for our first death. Leo the Ledian.
...
...
...
...
...
GYM BATTLE!


Striaton Gym!
Spoiler:
Alright then! Insert boring gym trainer battle details here. Okay then. It's time for the good stuff!

Let's go. Let's do this, Engineer Sonya!



He sends out a Level 12 Gligar. It attacks with Blue Flare. Mavis owns it. But the real challenge is his (her?) Ferrothorn. The only thing that saved me from losing, was when (after leveling up from the Gligar) Leia learned Smack Down! She bought me enough time to heal Mavis up to win!

And now... I have the Trio Badge!
And I get TM83 Teeter Dance? After all that pain and suffering. I get Teeter Dance. Yay.
More importantly, I'm now on The Philosopher's Stone era!


Dreamyard Part 2
Spoiler:
So I get Cut from Fennel, and I have to teach it to a Hufflepuff to progress. So I teach it to my starter, Mavis sigh I demolish some Plasma grunts that are trying to liberate Pokémon by kicking and hurting them (?).


My Current Team!
Spoiler:
Mavis
  • Hufflepuff
  • Level 14
  • Ability: Technician
  • Moves: Ice Beam, Aura Sphere, Headbutt, Cut

Leia
  • Ravenclaw
  • Level 16
  • Ability: Storm Drain
  • Moves: Dragon Pulse, Magical Leaf, Smack Down, Judgement
