    Username: ZeoStar
    Version: Dark Rising
    Single/Ultimate: Single
    Optional: Nickname
    Shiny Clause
    Duplicate Clause

    This probably isn't a great idea. If I pass even the first gym I'll consider it an accomplishment.

    Edit: Dead at the first gym.

    Level 20 Heatmore with drought set up with Fire Punch and Thunder Punch killed my entire team. That was brutal. -_-

    I may still try this game on a non nuzlocke

    Single/Ultimate: Single
    Version: Fool's Gold (ROM hack of Crystal with different typed versions of all Pokemon out of the first 251)
    Nicknaming theme will be SMITE gods, also Dupes Clause is always in effect, blacking/whiting out is a game over, shiny clause (because, shiny odds are significantly higher than they normally are, in this hack), and this last rule is a bit of a mercy rule due to some of the difficult battles... Instead of having being only able to faint once, each Pokemon will have 3 "Lives".
    I will roll a six-sided die to determine my starter.
    1 or 2 = Chikorita (Fighting)
    3 or 4 = Cyndaquil (Ice)
    5 or 6 = Totodile (Flying)
    I rolled a 4... Cyndaquil it is!

    Extra rules: I will be fusing this with my time warp run, just so everyone knows, that and I will fuse these two also with the story challenge! I will most likely post here, then time warp then write out a chapter in story challenge, (and possibly somewhere down the line, do a comic of this whole thing.)

    Game Set match, Lost only 3 pokes all game and all 3 were just getting smushed by OP opponents. Didn't realise Gyarados would out speed Magneton because I'm a derp.
    The Nuzlocke Challenge


    Zap Braff's Moveset and Level I put in as an honor thing because he did a lot of work.

    Team After 4 Gyms, This rom hack is sadly very easy, the trainers and gym leaders become under leveled compared to you very easily

    This is my first post in this forum, and I've expressed interest in performing a nuzlocke, for the first time. I certainly hope to be able to see how far I can get. So here is my submission form.

    Username: superherokid
    Version: Leaf Green, Soul Silver, Ruby, Diamond, White 2, Y, Ultra Sun
    Single/Ultimate?: Ultimate. I know half the games I couldn't finish, but that's part of the challenge.
    Extra Rules: *Must nickname all pokemon
    *Duplicate clause
    *Shiny clause (But cannot use unless it's the first pokemon caught in a region)

    I'll see how far I can go. I've tried a monotype challenge with my brother, the only pokemon other than the type being HM slaves, in Fire Red. Let's see what's going to happen.

    Just started the challenge!

    I began my journey, and beat my rival! Went to catch all the pokemon I can at that point, and I am currently training them. After 30 minutes, here are my first ones.

    Jetstream (Squirtle) Lv 11
    Nutty (Rattata) Lv 6
    Spearow (Accidentally pushed cancel on the option to nickname. Oops!) Lv 6
    Skye (Pidgey) Lv 6
    Buzz Buzz (Weedle) Lv 5

    I haven't yet beaten my rival west of Viridian City. I need to make sure I can take him down, and tear up his pokemon, easily. So I'm working to grind, to ensure that my Pokemon can survive. I've seen some Nuzlocke videos where someone has half his team below level 8 when they fight the rival in Cerulean city. I don't want that to be me.

    I don't want my beloved Pokemon to die! Let's go! *insert Viridian City them song*

    Just beat Brock, in grand style.

    Unfortunately, I lost Buzz Buzz while training outside of Viridian City.

    Here is my team, about to tackle Route 3 and Mount Moon.

    Guess that's what happens when you name a Weedle after a character in Earthbound that dies in the beginning.

    Just a piece of advice: In a Nuzlocke... Don't get greedy.

    Jetstream (Wartortle) Lv 19
    Spearow (set to be renamed later) Lv 15
    Skye (Pidgey) Lv 15
    Nutty (Rattata) Lv 15



    List of the deceased

    Buzz Buzz (Kakuna) Lv 7 (Getting greedy during training to a Rattata outspeeding me, for the first time in the fight)

    New Update!

    I've arrived at Mount Moon, and after a respite to make sure my new friends are up to date, I am here with the update!

    Jetstream: (Wartortle) Lv 26
    Spearow (To be Renamed) Lv 17
    Skye (Pidgey) Lv 17
    Nutty (Rattata) Lv 17
    And newcomers
    Lola (Nidorina) Lv 17
    The Rock (Geodude) Lv 17

    In the box
    Fishsticks (Magicarp) Lv 5


    RIP
    Buzz Buzz (Kakuna) Lv 7


    I am keeping Fishsticks in the PC so that he can be an extra backup surf slave. I will also keep an eye on both Skye and Spearow so that I can keep an extra Fly slave. Although my list of Cut able pokemon aren't as present. I maybe only have Nutty and Lola. I was going to keep Buzz Buzz for such a task, but alas, it was not meant to be.

    Made it out of Mt Moon, got past the Rival and Nugget Bridge. No casualties to date now. And I lucked out with an Abra! Had three weedles show up on route 25, then got the Bellsprout.

    Here's my fresh team

    Jetstream (Wartortle) Lv 30
    Lola (Nidorina) Lv 17
    Skye (Pidgey) Lv 17
    The Rock (Geodude) Lv 17
    Mindwave (Abra) Lv 13
    Pepper (Bellsprout) Lv 13

    Box
    Fishsticks (Magikarp) Lv 5
    Mankey (Another cancel click. Oops!) Lv 10
    Spearow (Hehehhe...) Lv 17
    Nutty (Rattata) Lv 17


    RIP
    Buzz Buzz (Kakuna) Lv 7


    Things are looking great here. Got an extra water and flying type to help out with Surf and Fly if something happens to Skye or Jetstream.

    Although I'll need a bit more training for my team to be able to manage enemy threats.

    Did a lot more work on my Leaf Green Playthrough. Other than Buzz Buzz, I haven't lost anyone. It's come close, but I've vanquished my foes every time.

    Jetstream is at Lv 37, while the rest, Lola, Skye, Mindwave, Pepper and The Rock are all between lvs 26-28, and I just got to Rock Tunnel.
