So, I decided the other day that I wanted to take a Nuzlocke challenge, though I figured I would go on one of my GBA games once I could clear it out. Then, the other day at gamestop, I found a used copy of HeartGold (the one game I didn't have) and so I bought it and here I am.

Here are the rules I'm playing by:

1 ) I may only catch the first Pokemon I come across in an area. If I already have one of that species or one of its evolutions, I may go with with next one and so on. This rule does not take effect until I can get Pokeballs. Roaming legendaries do not apply to this rule.

2 ) All Pokemon must be nicknamed.

3 ) No in-game trades. However gift Pokemon are acceptable. Trades may be done to evolve Pokemon but no trading for Pokemon.

4 ) If a Pokemon faints, it is considered dead and must be released.

5 ) In case of Black Out, I may resort to Pokemon in my PC to continue my adventure.

6 ) If by some stroke of luck a shiny should appear, they are free game to catch but cannot be used in playing the game. The Red Garydos is an exception to this rule.

7 ) Wonder Card event Pokemon may be picked up but cannot be used in the game.

8 ) No Pokewalker.

~ Bug-Catching Contest:

1) I may only keep 1 Pokemon from the Bug-Catching Contest, but the first encounter rule does not apply.

2) The Bug-Catching Contest may be re-entered after keeping 1 Pokemon from it, for the sake of winning prizes. However, the winning Pokemon MUST be released immediately afterwards.

3) The death rule will not apply to the Bug-Catching Contest.

~ Safari Zone:

1) I may one catch 1 Pokemon in the Safari Zone as a whole. However the first encounter rule does not apply.

Good luck. I'm doing Nuzlocke of FireRed. I'm on Misty, and my Nidorino died. He was my undertaker. ._.

That's not good. @.@

I've never done a Nuzlocke myself before so I'm kind of excited. But I also have class. The adventure is started but I haven't even picked up my first Pokemon yet. Though I'm leaning more towards Cyndaquil than Totodile. I always start with grass so I'm leaving Chikortia out this time.

I always picked Cyndaquil for some reason. But this time, on HG, I sorta wished I picked up Totodile. Totodile has a great movepool. I suggest, if you really want Cyndaquil that bad, trade it from another game, but pick up Totodile.

I have access to any Pokemon. I completed the Pokedex in Diamond. ;P

That being said, I also took the Quilava from the file of the person who owned the game before me. And a Roost TM. Some perks for getting the game used. ;P

However, maybe I'll take your advice and start with Totodile. I don't think I've ever started with Water before...

Water is a very useful type. And Totodile can learn a long range of attacks. Very useful.

I fail to see how. But it's basically playing a Pokemon game with my Rules 1 and 4 in effect. It's a challenge.
I cant wait to try this challenge... and when I do try it, I WILL MAKE A LOG IN COMIC FORM. ninja
