This is probably exactly what you think it is.
1. Standard Nuzlocke rules. You know how this works.

2. PERSISTENT STARTER - You may not remove your starter from your active team.

3. STARTER DEATH - If your starter dies, the run is failed.

4. THE SPICE OF LIFE - If your first catch would be a duplicate of the evolutionary line of a living pokemon you own, ignore it and repeat until an eligible pokemon is found.

5. NO CHANCE, NO FAIR - The mandatory Pikipek encounter at the beginning of the game does not count as your catch for that area.

6. DEFINE 'FIRST' - You may catch any pokemon in the first encounter for an area, including pokemon called for help.

7. EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION - No pokemon may know a move that was once an HM. This includes Cut, Defog, Dive, Flash, Fly, Rock Climb, Rock Smash, Strength, Surf, Waterfall, and Whirlpool. If a pokemon learns this move by level-up, it must be replaced as soon as possible.

8. ITS OWN REWARD - You may not use Pokemon Refresh.

9. SERIOUS BUSINESS - You may not use Festival Plaza (apart from Wonder Trade) or Poke' Pelago.

10. WONDERFUL 101 - You have one 'stock' of Wonder Trade use. This may be expended at any time. Each time you defeat a kahuna or captain, that stock is replenished by 1. You cannot hold more than one Wonder Trade use at a time. Any pokemon received in this way that is a dupe or whose level exceeds (10 + (3 x number of captains/kahunas beaten)) must be re-traded.














Hey, yeah, here we go.
Our connection is secure, right?
You kidding me? Only one person knows we're on this call, and you know right where she is.
...thanks, Professor.
Hey, think nothing of it! Anything for family, right?
...right.
Aw, c'mon. You'll see, it won't be so bad! There's no shortage of cool people to meet here!






No shortage...right.
For real, though! You've seen this place. Compared to your old home, it's like a wild frontier out here!
I mean, it's a nice place, don't get me wrong.
You'd better believe it! And you can hardly take three steps without stumbling over a Pokemon!






...in your face while you're trying to make a call...
'Sup!
Oh, uh, hey there. That's a, uhm. Hang on. I know this one!
BZZZT! Time's up! The answer is 'Rockruff'!






Dude. Right in front of the kid?
C'mon, Rockruff. Off the table, you know the rules!
Man, next time you have a hottie over, I'm totally barking like a crazy 'mon at nothing for hours.
Pffft!
What? What'd he say?
Don't sell me out!
He said he'll play with you another time.
Solid. I'll remember this.
Right! So, anyway. About your 'trainer passport' picture.






Yeah, it's weird, but I guess it suits me?
Hah! You are weird, no doubt!
I doubt my parents would even recognize me.
Hey, hey, c'mon now. None of that. I know they would.
You think so?
No doubt about it. Now c'mon, let's go to the next step.






There you go.
Alex, huh? Sure, that works.
Sounds wrong, though.
You're gonna want to get used to it. Learn to answer to it.
... ... ...I wish-
-I know, man. Believe me, I know. I wish it was like that too. But we're gonna have to keep on keepin' on, right?
Right.






Sure thing...cousin.
Huh. What's up?
You really think this'll work?
It'd better, for all our sakes.

Definitely starting out the run with a lot of questions, looking forward to seeing where it goes from here!

A lot of the "routes" in the earlier game seems to run together, from what I recall, so goood luck with your first few catches.

As an aside, is the Sun or Moon? I'm not super familiar with the Gen so I wasn't able to tell from the first update! (Unless you're leaving that a secret till later for suspense reasons).

Woo, a new run(hopefully a lighter one) from Manic! I was honestly expecting to see a Kalos run from you in the near future, but I can definitely get on board with Gen 7!

Just throwing this out here, but you're dead to me if you don't choose Popplio! (Just kidding!)

OOOOOH BOY. this is really the first manic run i'll be able to interact with! And already with the plot intrigue! I'm looking forward to what's coming next! ... and who your starter is gonna be, because honestly i like all three of them in some way, and looking forward to how you give them personality~

good luck, break a leg, whatever luck expression is out there.

Yes! Yes!

I can finally, finally, watch a run from the beginning!!
And it's a manic run, of all things!
I'm already wondering who the main character is. I'm so excited!

Fuck yes fuck yes fuck yessssss!

As far as I can tell, this is the first vanilla SM screenshot run! You beat me to it, dammit! I'll try again for USUM

No idea where Alex comes from...

I've figured it out. This is a sequel to Blinding Light, isn't it? With the idea that Alex is a fake name and since an eclipse can blind you. Well played, if I'm correct.

Good luck!

Wild Ordo will often hide alone; however, caught specimen are loyal until their death.
Wait, I actually get to comment LIVE on a Manic run? Madness.

Looks like "Alex" here is good with Pokemon, and seems to be the only one that can speak to them. Wonder how that'll play out...

Excited to see what comes next!

A new run? Awesome! I've been thinking about starting a new playthrough of Moon so this should help get me in the mood to play it!
