I started doing Nuzlockes back during the December of 2019. I remember it like a Christmas Carol.

I discovered the challenge by watching Jaiden Animation's video about her doing the Pokemon Nuzlocke Challenge for the first time. I had no single idea of the challenge (heck I was never involved with any sorts of challenges or games). Then when the Jaiden Animation's video came out 3 months later, I saw the rules and how the challenge works. I was like well, 'I guess I could try it out?' Then the video has 20 Million Views at the end of 2019 (yeah, with a capital M and a capital V). Then I'm stuck doing my Sword and Shield nuzlockes because they are the worst game to Nuzlocke so, yeah ...

I never saw the original comic. I worry that if the comic was not as good as Jaiden video, it would ruin the challenge (Sorry if you are the original creator).

Now the challenge has over 1,000 members and I am now one of them (you can check out the member count at the bottom of the forum home page). Jaiden now has 32 million views but who is counting?
