If I worry about my gender identity, it just confuses me, so I'm good with the three main ones. I just may correct a "he," though, but I take no offense from it.

Constantly in search of the highest challenge, this person takes up the most impractical rulesets.
I had something I wanted to add last night, but I've forgotten it, so here's this:

A plot or a lore dump on how money works in the Pokemon universe? Irl this would collapse economies faster than mass counterfeiting.

I got this off an idea from Tumblr but: A Nuzlocke where the story is of a sitcom that slowly devolves into madness as some of the characters slowly die or disappear from existence
I planned on doing this originally but I'm already procrastinating on my other 3 Nuzlocke's

A Lorelocke of Colosseum/XD where the method for making Shadow Pokemon is to just shove ancient spirits into the Pokemon (make up some bs about how that makes them more violent), and those spirits are where the Lore rules come from. Jury's out on how it'll work for Umbreon and Espeon, though

I think it says something about my nuzlocke obsession that thirteen minutes into watching Encanto, it's occurred to me that it could be the premise of a gijinka nuzlocke, where the Pokemon powers are magical gifts and the 'trainer' stand-in is the only one without a gift.

I'm in the middle of a Movelocke. Every time the game asks if my Pokemon wants to learn a new move, I must answer yes. Even for moves like Helping Hand.

The move it replaces is determined at random with a 4-sided die. This has resulted in some interesting conundrums, like a Pokemon learning Rest, then learning Sleep Talk but overwriting the Rest move it just learned. I had a Staravia that forgot all its offensive moves.

For TMs and HMs, the rules vary from game to game.

If games where TMs break: I roll a 4-sided die, on a 4 I can use the TM if I choose.
In games where TMs are reusable: roll the 4-sided die, plus only one Pokemon can learn the TM; but they die, it can be taught again.
In games with HMs: the HMs can be taught at will. Also, you can choose which move they're replacing, instead of rolling for it. So even though TMs are a pain, at least you could benefit by replacing Self-Destruct with Strength or whatever.

A tongue-in-cheek "Friendship" themed run where all of your Pokemon evolve through friendship, that riffs on the power of friendship and how it works in game and in stories (for example, defeating people means you become their friend, so to make the most friends, you need to battle everyone in sight)

This would probably work best as a screenshot run, but I'm still waffling how the ruleset could best convey the theme.

Has a lot of imagination for stories! Could never stop writing!
Okay! Time for me to share a Nuzlocke idea that I would love to see. I'm not sure if anyone has done this, but I would love to see a crossover Nuzlocke run. It's basically any Nuzlocke run, but the protagonist/trainer is just someone from another media (Example: Luz from The Owl House, Anne from Amphibia, or Gregory from FNAF:SB). You can have them interact with other main Pokemon characters or replace the gym leaders and/or with another character from that specific media.

I would do that one day, but too anxious to share.

Duly noted. (Although what I've got planned is a bit different because the crossover 'protagonist' isn't actually the trainer...)
