    Howdy! The name's Damp. You may know me from the Nuzlocke World Cup (winning team) or Nuzvivor Sinnoh (15th place), and I have some good experience in Nuzlocking. Today, I will be telling a story of a Pokemon Ruby Wedlocke, but as a Similar Strength Randomizer. The Power of Random is a clever...

    Hello and welcome to a little side project I like to call "Team Tales!" (Cover art pending.) "What's this about?" I hear you all asking - well it's essentially a side-story to my main nuzlocke series! For anyone that's read my runs you know that at this point I've collected a lot of Pokemon...

    Screenshot Hoenn Hack Roughing it in the Goof Zone

    Hello Nuzforums! It's been a while since I last posted a run, but since I did make a new hack it's only right that I give it a quick nuzlocke to see just how good a job I did at putting the game together. I'm sure it won't be too bad given my extensive knowledge of the hack and the changes I...

    Pokemon Diamond/Pearl Exclusionlocke

    Welcome back to the Exclusionlocke! We’re now entering the fourth generation with Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. There are a few important changes to mention here. First and foremost, the Physical/Special split. Prior to this point, a move’s damage category was dependent on its type. For...

    Howdy all! I'm ArsSanctum: a long time lurker of these forums and a prior poster! Mind, I don't remember if I used this handle and just deleted everything or if I used a different handle, but it would have been nearly a decade ago... Anyway, I've been lurking about and reading many of the...

    Hello! I'm sorry if this post is formatted incorrectly, as this is my first real thread / post. I read through the Guide and tried my best :sweatdrop:... Anyway! This Nuzlocke is going to be set in Pokemon Emerald (as you could probably guess by the title). Believe it or not, my introduction to...

    Pokemon Emerald Exclusionlocke

    Hi, folks! Welcome back to Hoenn! Emerald didn’t change a huge amount, but the biggest changes are that we fight both teams and Wallace is the Champion. You’ve already voted that we’re doing the postgame Steven fight, so that will be included after we beat Wallace. With that said, there are...

    Pokemon FireRed/LeafGreen Exclusionlocke

    Hey, everybody! Welcome back to the Exclusionlocke. It’s time for the first remakes, FireRed and LeafGreen. As remakes, there isn’t much new to discuss, but there are definitely some differences from Gen 1. Type matchups have been fixed, Dark and Steel exist, Special is split, Abilities...

    Welcome to a likely disaster! This challenge was made up on a whim, due to that if there are future attempts, the rules may be subject to change based on the feasibility of this challenge. If that's the case, the OP will be reorganized to communicate the changes being made. If I forget to...

    Pokemon Crystal Exclusionlocke

    Hello again and welcome to Crystal! Same region as last time, but with some neat differences that I'll get into as we play. As a reminder, I’m taking feedback about which post-game fights to do. The ones I’m considering (and their current vote totals) are listed below With that out of the...

    A noob attempts another Nuzlocke Challenge - a Pokemon Platinum Nuzlocke!

    A couple months ago, I attempted a Platinum Nuzlocke, my first Nuzlocke ever. The challenge ended in humiliating failure as my entire team was swept by Roark's Cranidos. I am going to attempt this challenge again. This time, I am definitely going to grind more before major battles to prevent a...

    Pokemon Gold/Silver Exclusionlocke - the Johto continuation

    Welcome, welcome to a brand new adventure in a shiny new region, Johto! The Johto games, while not the first I ever played, are definitely the ones I spent the most time with as a kid, so I have a ton of nostalgia for them. Are they good for Nuzlockes, though? Eh...they start fine, but the...

    Hello, again! It's time for another Exclusionlocke game! If you missed the first part of this series, I just finished playing through Red and Blue with the rule that I can't reuse Pokemon between games. I use a Bulbasaur in Red? I can never use a Bulbasaur again. Full rules (and the...
