I'm guessing the starter doesn't count...

When you try to release a starter it comes back and it says "______ came back because it was worried about you."

exactly, so either your starter is the only exception to this rule, or you have to permanently put it into the PC if it dies, I was just asking what one would do.

Put it into the PC.

Frankly, I'm all for just using the PC for everything, set up and RIP box, just in case you want to stop, or you plan on stopping after becoming Champion.

The original comic (which you linked to) didn't even have mention of the word Nuzlocke (other than the site name), seeing as the Pokemon that it was named after didn't even appear until the 3rd comic.

Thats because the comic has been around for quite some time, the Rules comic page was made after, the guy who drew all the comics were named after him "Nuzlocke"

Last I checked, Nuzlocke was the name of the Nuzleaf who looked like John Locke from Lost, not the name of the creator.

A Nuzlocker can add aditional rules, but every Nuzlocke must have these rules, any other rules you have heard are only added by someone else and he/she may be the only one that uses that rule.

I've seen some odd user-added rules myself, such as no healing items and only Pokemon centers for healing, or vice-versa.

And about power leveling, considering the rules you must use, that is kind of a given and usually they have their pokemon around the level of the highest leveled pokemon of the next gym leader, unless they're afraid.

No Nuzlocke is easy mode. Even if you only use the two base rules, you will start to get more emotional over a Pokemon game than you ever have.

A way I've heard to make the experience more intense is to nickname all your pokemon so that you are that much closer to them

Excuse me, I released my Chikorita in SoulSIlver so I could do the Joey Challenge (whole game with just a Rattata). To my knowledge, the only one you can't release is Pikachu in Yellow version.

The fact that anyone thinks it's that hard is just stupid. It's incredibly easy. It's possible to beat the game with a single Pokémon so long as you aren't ******* stupid.

It IS hard, but it's MEANT to be challenging. As you said, you just need to be smart about how you approach it.

Also, I call ******** on beating the game with only one Pokemon until somebody proves to me that you can beat the original Pokemon games with ONLY a Charmander (first two Gyms are super-effective against it, and you don't get Iron Tail to cheat your way past Brock).

When I was younger playing Blue, I had no intention of raising any other Pokemon besides my Blastoise. I beat the game.

My bad. I get passionate about certain things.

Especially about this ******* news story that they had about some God damn kid that's only a couple years younger than me that got some ****** game published for the iPhone (**** the iPhone, **** sucks) that I recreated in around 30 minutes... Where's my God damn news story?

i really want to try this, but what does it mean by area? like each road, town, etc?
#53 to #36 - jazargo

(12/30/2012) [-]
I'm guessing it means like different routes, areas and places to catch pokemon, like when you enter a new place it tells you the name of it. Or i guess when you look on your pokedex for a pokemon it shows what 'areas' it appears in
Hope this helped ^^

Does rule 1 apply to the first area above Pallet town? You don't have any pok'eballs yet so you can't catch anything.

The rule is only in effect once you get pokeballs.

It's actually usually the opposite. If you don't have any pokeballs, then you're ****** and you get nothing from that route.

Ok, area, as like route 4, route 6 viridian forest, etc.
Or new area as in, once you get 2 full screens away from your last attempt to cathc something.

only 1 pokemon per area, so route 1 you catch the first pokemon you see. If you have no pokeballs or you kill it, then too bad, its gone, cant try again. It limits the amount of pokemon you can have in it.

you cant catch it. It is the first pokemon seen in the area all together. You cannot return to the area in hopes of catching something.

Each new route. Say you go to route one and you find a pidgey. You either catch THAT pidgey or you don't catch a pokemon in route 1 at all. Not the gender you wanted? Not the level you hoped for? Too bad. When you get to route 2, you can catch one more. Continue like that.

You forgot my favourite rule:

-nickname all of your pokemon, even if you don't want to.

It creates a bond, one that is so powerful it is as if the pokemon are real and are dieing. I cried when my Fred died. Fred the pidgey I will never forget you. R.I.P. :'(

You don't actually have to catch it, but you can't catch anything else in that area, and if you run out of pokemon you lose.

i'm not allowed to explore route 2 for a different one? i have to move on to the next?

Right. The first pokemon you see is the only one you can catch. No exceptions.

Unless you decide to change the rules. It's your game, after all.

Some people play with a "only one of each type of Pokemon" rule. That way, if you lose your Pidgeot, you can't just grab one of the thirteen other Pidgeys you caught. It makes each pokemon special and unique.

what about your starter then? do you release it to begin with or what?

Your starter is the first pokemon you got in your starting town. So, if I was playing Yellow Version, then Pikachu would be the pokemon I "Caught" in Pallet Town. Towns and Caves count as "Routes" for the sake of this challenge. Also, I sometimes count large dungeons, such as Silph Headquarters being separate from Saffron City, although I might be lynched for saying that.

Another clarification that I've seen, although this is a specific instance, is Mt. Coronet counting as three separate areas; The Inside, The Outside (The Snowy Part), and Spear Pillar. Some people even go so far as to say that any time the random encounters change, you can catch another pokemon. I don't like that rule, because that means you can catch a Gastly on every floor of the tower in Lavender town.
