I just started a White Nuzlocke. My rules are:
-Catch the first Pokemon you see in a new area.
-Nickname all captured Pokemon.
-If a Pokemon faints, it's dead and cannot be used again. All deaths are stored in a singular box.
-If I would be automatically healed after a battle, all deaths occurring in that battle are negated.
-You may catch duplicates of any Pokemon you've already caught.
-Found Revives and Rare Candies are okay to use to revive Pokemon at any time. No Revives may be purchased.
So let's get this thing started!
I'm a boy named Chris. Today I got a male Snivy named Ginseng from the local Professor, Professor Juniper. He beat Bianca and Cheren's Oshawott and Tepig with relative ease. After meeting up with Juniper, we all went to Route 1, where we learned how to catch Pokemon. Putting my new knowledge to use, I captured a female Lillipup named Pepper and made my way to Accumula Town. Unfortunately for me, Pepper had the Pickup ability (FFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-!). In Accumula Town, a group called Team Plasma gave a speech on an epidemic called the Black Rage and how Trainers should release their Pokemon to protect them from it, as it only targets human-owned Pokemon for whatever reason. Afterwards, a Trainer calling himself N challenged me to a battle. His Purrloin was no match for Ginseng, and with that done, I hit Route 2 to catch...
I caught her and named her Paprika, since I already used the name Pepper, and after having Pepper catch up to her in level, I decided I was going to use Paprika from then on instead of Pepper since she had better stats (but still had Pickup! I swear, when it comes to catching Lillipups, I'm cursed! )
So now Ginseng and Paprika are both at level 8, and I'm taking a bit of a break.
-Snivy/Male/Ginseng/level 5-8/Nuvema Town/Naive/Somewhat stubborn/Learned Vine Whip
-Lillipup/Female/Pepper/level 3-4/Route 1/Impish/Loves to eat
-Lillipup/Female/Paprika/level 4-8/Route 2/Bashful/Likes to thrash about/Learned Odor Sleuth and Bite
EDIT: I went to the Dreamyard to train my team before the Gym and ended up getting a male Panpour named Splash. I battled Cheren and trained on Route 2 until everyone but Pepper reached level 12. I then challenged the Gym and ended up fighting Chili because I picked Snivy. His Lillipup fell to Paprika, but not before a hard fought battle. Pansear was easy pickings for Splash, and I ended up with the Trio Badge.
After leaving the Gym, Fennel greeted me with a request to help her find some Dream Mist, so back to the Dreamyard! There, I met with Bianca, and we started searching together. Woo. Except for Team Plasma, who Splash absolutely decimated. Munna and Musharna reunited, we got the Dream Mist, which netted me a C-Gear and a Pal Pad.
Anyway, I left town to try and catch something on Route 3, but Cheren was there to battle me (dick). Splash and Paprika took care of him quite easily, so guess what happened after that.
Yep. More Plasma shenanigans. This time, they took a girl's Pokemon. I caught a Pidove before joining the chase and named him Frankie. Ginseng struggled against the Grunts, but we managed to come out fine. Before leaving, though, I took a chance on what I could find, and it turned out to be a Roggenrola, which will be an absolute GODSEND against Lenora. I named him Jagger and got Heal Balls from the little girl.
The plan is to train Frankie and Jagger a little either tonight or tomorrow, then hopefully get to Nacrene City. But before I go, what's the etiquette on trade evolutions in a Nuzlocke challenge?

Please stop complaining about Pikachu losing to "weak" Pokemon at the start of each new region. Its power is drained at the start of each new region, and anyway, it's equally bad storytelling for Pikachu to plow through all of its opponents.
