This is the first comic, theres loads of them now http://www.nuzlocke.com/pokemonhardmode.php?p=1

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.
User avatar #162 to #154 - Nimmo (12/30/2012) [-]
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"
User avatar #169 to #163 - Marker (12/30/2012) [-]
Last I checked, Nuzlocke was the name of the Nuzleaf who looked like John Locke from Lost, not the name of the creator.
User avatar #174 to #169 - Nimmo (12/31/2012) [-]
The name of the author
User avatar #128 - swiftblood (12/30/2012) [-]
wasnt there a rule against power leveling as well

yeah i thought it was alot harder than just this
User avatar #149 to #134 - sirofminorclass (12/30/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #156 to #149 - Marker (12/30/2012) [-]
I've seen some odd user-added rules myself, such as no healing items and only Pokemon centers for healing, or vice-versa.
User avatar #155 to #149 - swiftblood (12/30/2012) [-]
alright, this just seems like nuzlocke easy mode then
User avatar #160 to #155 - sirofminorclass (12/30/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #157 to #155 - Marker (12/30/2012) [-]
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.
#124 - licatabroskibro (12/30/2012) [-]
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

I always watched Haydunn on youtube do the Nuzlocke Challenge. He was really good at it actually.

BlackLightAttack is also pretty good
#147 - irishlawyer (12/30/2012) [-]
I'm guessing the starter doesn't count...
#148 to #147 - intentscarab ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
When you try to release a starter it comes back and it says "______ came back because it was worried about you."
#150 to #148 - irishlawyer (12/30/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #153 to #150 - Marker (12/30/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #140 - rufless (12/30/2012) [-]
you're playing with emotions a little too much there, mister.
Pokemon are all what inhabit a little part of my heart; releasing pokemon
is like losing parts of myself!
User avatar #122 - sstiickss (12/30/2012) [-]
I am curious about the legendary pokemon
can you catch them or no?
#166 to #122 - John Cena (12/30/2012) [-]
Well you can only catch the first pokemon you encounter so if it's the first one you encounter then yes ! But if you saw a zubat or whatever before well sorry
User avatar #121 - daringdestiny (12/30/2012) [-]
**** Giovanni and his move Fissure
User avatar #113 - Crusader (12/30/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #114 to #113 - ganjalf (12/30/2012) [-]
Areas are intended as single routes, caves, forests,cities, buildings with catchable pokemon ecc.
User avatar #115 to #113 - VincentKing ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #119 to #115 - Crusader (12/30/2012) [-]
What if you don't catch one, leave and come back at a later date?
User avatar #120 to #119 - VincentKing ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #96 - kobemamba (12/30/2012) [-]
Can I keep the starter?
User avatar #98 to #96 - pensketch (12/30/2012) [-]
yes, until it faints
User avatar #99 to #98 - kobemamba (12/30/2012) [-]
I'll never let that happen
User avatar #106 to #98 - chaossniper ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
but you can't release starters they come back.
plus if i go back to an area can use PC or/and catch the 1st pokemon i encounter
User avatar #111 to #106 - jokeface (12/30/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #116 to #111 - VincentKing ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
If its friendship is full, there is a chance it will come back
User avatar #131 to #116 - chaossniper ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
thats why i kept coming back
#63 - John Cena (12/30/2012) [-]
This doesn't make the game any harder. The easiest way to beat any of the pokemon games is to just use your starter the entire time. By the fourth gym or so, it's 10 levels ahead of anything you're going to fight.
#61 - senglish (12/30/2012) [-]
This is actually just called hard mode it is not ******* nuzlock'e's to own there is even a really good copy pasta that goes with it too.
#62 to #61 - senglish (12/30/2012) [-]
And you also HAVE to name your pokemon to build an even stronger connection.

I just went through the e4 in Soulsilver.
I lost all but my two newest members. I ended up taking down 3 of Lance's dragons with a Tauros, just barely. It was my fault. I didn't train enough. I didn't even mean for it to be a real run of the e4, I just kind of went for it to test how much more training I needed, planning to shut the game off and restart from the last save. But then it autosaved and I couldn't go back...
Now I'm taking on Kanto mostly with my Tauros. He's a bro if there ever was one.

do you know where the episodes after episode 6 are for that series? i cant seem to find them anywhere..
#58 to #51 - holychipmonk (12/30/2012) [-]
Nice job getting that far!
I just started on pokemon yellow and am somehow meant to beat Brock with a pikachu, ratata and a metapod...

i really want to try this, but what does it mean by area? like each road, town, etc?
User avatar #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 ^^
#54 to #53 - jthwdragon (12/30/2012) [-]
yea it did thanks
User avatar #11 - fuzzysixx ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #14 to #11 - godtherapist (12/30/2012) [-]
The rule is only in effect once you get pokeballs.
User avatar #43 to #14 - waaw (12/30/2012) [-]
It's actually usually the opposite. If you don't have any pokeballs, then you're ****** and you get nothing from that route.
User avatar #15 to #14 - fuzzysixx ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
I figured as much, thanks.

my friend did this once with Pokemon black. lost his starter(snivy) early due to a random crit, and for most of the game was soloing it with audino of all Pokemon. he had that mother trucker take on 12 Pokemon in a row and still won since it turned out that nearly all of the Pokemon he fought were male, meaning attract won him all of his battles.

Audino op!

I have not played pokemon in 3 years and you have inspired me to play through this challenge. Wish me luck i'll keep updated here
User avatar #70 - peanutbuttahjellah (12/30/2012) [-]
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.
User avatar #92 to #70 - RequieminMortis (12/30/2012) [-]
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).
User avatar #105 to #92 - airmax (12/30/2012) [-]
When I was younger playing Blue, I had no intention of raising any other Pokemon besides my Blastoise. I beat the game.
User avatar #93 to #92 - peanutbuttahjellah (12/30/2012) [-]
Well I mean only a single pokémon for combat. HM slaves don't count. Easy as hell man, just gotta know how to play the game.
User avatar #81 to #70 - yourmomiswatching (12/30/2012) [-]
It's just for fun, you don't have to get all uppity about it.
User avatar #83 to #81 - peanutbuttahjellah (12/30/2012) [-]
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?
