Well, seeing how I've now got my laptop and DS back, I decided it was time to try something I never have before: A Nuzlocke Challenge.

For those who don't know what it is, I'll just say this: It's a special challenge, and anyone can add their own rules, as long as these two rules are in play:

~Any Pokemon that faints is considered dead, and must be released.

~The player may only catch the first Pokemon encountered in each area, and none else. If the first Pokemon encountered faints or flees, there are no second chances.

So, here are my added on rules:

~Healing items bought at a Poke Mart may not be used. This includes any sort of Potion, Full Restores, Antidotes, Paralyz Heals, Awakenings, Burn Heals, Ice Heals, and Full Heals. Ethers and Elixirs are allowed, as well as any sort of "natural" healing items (EnergyPowders, Energy Roots, and Heal Powders), food (berries and Lava Cookies) and drink (Moomoo Milk, Lemonade, etc.). Rare Candies, temporary stat-enhancing items (X-_s, Guard Specs., Dire Hits), and permanent stat-enhancing items (Carboses, PP Ups, HP Ups, etc.) may also be used.

~Exceptions to the second required rule ("catching the first Pokemon encountered in each area") includes shinies, encountering "repeat" Pokemon (like finding a Zigzagoon in one area after catching one from another), accidentally fainting the first encounter, and Pokemon that do not require having a Poke Ball thrown at them (the Wynaut egg, Shedinja, Beldum, etc.).

~All Pokemon are to be nicknamed (which is what I do anyways).

~If I get a white-out, it's Game Over, regardless if I have Pokemon in the box or not.

OK, so here's my stats so far:

Male ♒ Total Pokemon: 2 ♒ Current Location: Petalburg City
Evolved Pokemon: 0 ♒ Fully Evolved Pokemon: 0 ♒ Fallen Pokemon: 0


R e g a l
The starter of the team. Met at Route 101.
Male ♔ Level 9 ♔ Brave
Scratch ♔ Growl ♔ Focus Energy

R u t e e
The first Pokemon caught. Met at Route 102.
Female ♟ Level 6 ♟ Lonely
Tackle ♟ Growl ♟ Tail Whip

"Rutee" is actually "Rumee" at the moment because I mindfucked at a certain character's name and realized it after I had finished naming her, so hopefully she'll be the only one who gets a name change out of my entire team.

Oh, and whoever gets the naming pattern gets a cookie :D

This'll be public, namely because I wanna show it in more places than one.

. . . That sounds crazy and intense and I actually might try this at some point in time.

And I think I know the naming pattern but I'm going to wait to see more names before saying what I think. ♥

It'll be an interesting experience, that's for sure XD;

One or two Pokemon more, and it'll definitely be obvious to those who know the series well, or maybe even not-so-well. /I personally don't know it too well, but I know enough of the names, so yeah

After I beat my Sapphire version for the first time, I am considering doing a Nuzlocke challenge! Hope to see more updates :D

I'll probably update it after every major victory (against a gym leader, an Aqua Admin./Archie, and I'll probably do the entire E4 at once). So I'm sure to have updates every now and then~
