    Written Story Kanto Gijinka A Slice of Nuzlocke Story, Starring Green

    Whelp. Here we go. I've been dying to do a Nuzlocke since forever, and for some reason I finally worked up the courage to start one! That run ended by me wiping out to Blue in the champion fight. So here's a way for me to practice my (very rusty) writing chops as I go through the events of my...

    Screenshot Sinnoh General Platinum, but without the 'E'.

    Hello again Nuzlocke Forums! 2 months ago I made a post here of my run where I challenged myself to beat Pokémon Emerald without using any Pokémon, attacks, or items with an 'E' in their names. Today, I am here to attempt the same challenge in the mildly harder Platinum version. Here are the...

    Introductions Pokemon Crystal is the game that truly introduced me and got me hooked into the Pokemon franchise when I was a kid. I had lots of fun playing it back in elementary school, and the sheer size of the game (comparable to other games during the time) kept me occupied for a considerable...

    Hello Nuzlocke Forums! I'm Wenitzb. Over a month ago I made a post on the Pokémon subreddit sharing my Nuzlocke with them. Today, over a month late, I had an epiphany that could surely only be described as genius. "What if I shared my Nuzlocke with people (and get this) who like Nuzlockes?"...

    Written Story Unova Teen Gijinka Renegade of Ideals(Randomized Classlocke)

    Hello everyone this is my advice; always take notes when you do nuzlocke runs. Because then, when you realize you had nothing truly planned for NaNoWriMo on November 1st, you can just take it and roll with it. This is a Randomized Gijinka Classlocke of Pokemon White. Not too unlike my current...

    Thumper: A Pokemon Sword Nuzlocke

    Welcome to my shoddy attempt at a comic! I used to be an old user of these forums back in 2016-17, and while I was there I wrote a couple of nuzlocke stories. The first was My Immortal levels of pain, the second was mediocre teen fan fiction. The improvement? Marked. I hate those old stories...
