    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...

    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...

    Pokemon Yellow Exclusionlocke

    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...

    Guys, let's just turn around. We've been out here for hours, and we haven't found anything. Aw, c'mon, Shigeru! We're so close now, I can feel it! I am of a mind with Shigeru, Renko. It is getting rather late, and we do have classes tomorrow... Finally, some common sense in this hogwash...

    Screenshot Sinnoh Written Log Fan Game Teen Blind Renegade Platinum Nuzlocke Attempt 1. Probably not gonna last very long.

    So... I heard that Renegade Platinum is a pretty hard romhack of Pokemon Platinum. Which means, I'm gonna try my best and log a blind nuzlocke of this game. I'm hoping it's gonna be fun; it sounds like it will. Anyways, time to start :)

    So yea... I've done a Potterlocke before on another forum, and lets just say it ended.... ...badly. Ok all my team got wiped out in one update and the two in my pc were forbidden to be used so I basically lost then and there. To be fair it was also a randomizer. I have learned my lesson...

    I fear this might be deleted for getting too "political", but... climate change is kind of a big deal. True, there's only so much the common person can do, but I'm tired of being mad at myself for doing nothing at all. So here's what I'm gonna do... I'm gonna do a Nuzlocke. And every time...

    Nuzlocke Nuzlocke Ideas and Concepts You'd Like to See

    I'm sure I'm not the only one here who's had a few different ideas for Nuzlocke stories I've wanted to write or different concepts that've come to mind, but wasn't able to pursue for various reasons (usually lack of time for tackling that much stuff as the culprit). Or maybe there's just things...
