    What is a Nuzlocke Challenge?

    A Nuzlocke challenge involves treating any Pokemon that you have in your party that faint 'dying', and hence said Pokemon cannot be used anymore in the challenge and must be replaced. In addition, you can only catch and use the first Pokemon you encounter in any city, town, cave or route. If the first Pokémon encountered faints or flees, there are no second chances with Pokemon on that route. You complete the challenge when you beat the Champion/see the credits.

    There are many other variations of such a challenge - such as having to nickname all your Pokemon (so you have a closer connection to your lost comrades) which will be used here, allowing for the first Pokemon you encounter to not include duplicates (so if you encountered a Pikipek in one route as your first Pokemon and got it and then encountered another in the next route, you can wait until a different Pokemon appears and treat that as your 'first Pokemon'), no legendaries, restriction on healing items that can be used (beyond Revives obviously) and so forth.

    Started a blind nuzlocke of Sun Friday, and do to work and other things haven't gotten that far. So far I've lost a Pichu, Pikipek, and Wingull. I just beat Hala and got the ride pager. My team is currently:
    Kane (Torracat) 17
    Yokozuna (Makuhita) 16
    Trixie (Pom-Pom Oricorio) 13
    Victor (Cutiefly) 14
    Matilda (Zubat) 14

    Planning to see where Tauros opens up besides Ten Carat Hill, and seeing if I get any other new capture chances. And before people ask how I have had 7 captures so far I'm counting each time a new name pops up, the Hau'oli Outskirts are different than Route 1. Loses happened due to Ilama's Smeargle, a wild Gumshoos, and Oricorio calling in help twice while I tried to catch it.

    I started my Pokemon Sun Nuzlocke a few days ago! Three deaths so far, but no major ones, which feels like a miracle after Wishiwashi and Lurantis. We're about to head up to Hokulani and take on Sophocles's trial.

    Right now, I have:
    Xenon the Primarina Lv. 34
    Ray the Toucannon Lv. 33
    Jony the Leafeon Lv. 33
    Saul the Mudsdale Lv. 35
    Adele the Drifblim Lv. 32
    Tate the Pikachu Lv. 33

    Currently, Tate and Adele are the ones I'm most worried about. Tate's obvious, but I'm holding out for Thunderbolt before evolving, and Adele has the worst moves imaginable. Here's hoping they both survive!

    That's entirely up to you. People play both ways. You just have to decide if you want more opportunities to catch pokémon or if you want a greater challenge.

    If i would have done a blind nuzlocke when I first got the game, I would have lost the nuzlocke to Ilima's Smeargle. CURSE YOU WATER GUN

    We all live in a Pokémon world


    After thoroughly enjoying a regular playthrough in Sun, I've decided to tackle a Nuzlocke in Moon. I just cleared my first Grand Trial, and I've already suffered as many fatalities as my last two Nuzlockes (Red and Diamond) combined!

    For my first-ever Trial against Totem Raticate, I instructed Pelt (Alolan Meowth) to lead with "Fake Out" to take advantage of the free flinch, but that didn't stop the Totem from summoning an ally Rattata. Pelt built up the power of her "Echoed Voice" while the Totem lowered her speed with "Scary Face" and her defenses with "Tail Whip." Thankfully, Rattata's Hustle Ability caused his "Quick Attack" to miss, and Pelt was able to one-shot him with her third overall "Echoed Voice." With much of Pelt's stamina reduced, I needed to get her off the field, so I relied on my partner Archer (Rowlet) to finish off the Totem. Although "Leafage" only inflicted a pitiful amount of damage on the Totem, Archer's natural bulk allowed him to survive long enough to emerge victorious.

    With Normalium-Z in hand, it was time for the Grand Trial against Melemele Island Kahuna Hala, who'd given me Archer and gotten me started on the Island Challenge. Bloodlust (Zubat) defeated his Mankey with just one "Wing Attack", and her Inner Focus Ability allowed her to continue attacking even after his Makuhita struck with "Fake Out." Hala's ace, Crabrawler, boasted much greater endurance, however, and although Bloodlust withstood "All-Out Pummeling" with ease, she finally fell to a "Power-Up Punch" and "Pursuit" combination. Thankfully, my trusted starter Archer managed to end the match with "Peck."
