This is more a reminder to myself than anything else.


CORE RULES

1. A Pokemon that faints is considered dead, and must be either released, or boxed permanently.

2. Only the first Pokemon encountered in an area may be caught. If that Pokemon faints or no pokeballs are available, no other attempts can be made in that area.

3. Nickname every Pokemon obtained.

4. The challenge does not start until the first pokeballs are received.

5. Battle mode must be "set."

SUPPLEMENTARY RULES

1. Duplicate Clause: Pokemon that have already been caught or killed in other areas do not count as the "first encounter" in a new area.

2. Event Clause: Pokemon obtained via in-game events (i.e. Wind Factory Drifloon, Lake of Rage Red Gyarados) are likewise exempt from the "first encounter" rule. However only one attempt can be made to capture it.

3. Shiny Clause: in the event of a shiny Pokemon appearing, an attempt may be made to catch it, regardless of the "first encounter" rule.

4. Pinwheel Clause: if a single area is divided into sections that require game progression to get through (i.e. Cracked Rocks before Rock Smash, Boulders before Strength), the newly opened section can be considered a new area provided the new section has different levels/encounters from the previous section.

5. Alternate Encounter Clause: related to the above, a route may be used to catch more than one Pokemon under the condition that it is of a different method than simply walking through tall grass. This includes fishing, honey trees, surfing, etc. However, only one alternate method can be used per area.

6. Starter Pokemon will be determined by the last digit of the trainer ID. 1-3 Grass; 4-6 Fire; 7-9 Water; 0 Trainer's choice.
