Although the goal of this blog is to try out hard-modes on new and classic video games, I think I'll kick off the blog with a Nuzlocke Challenge. Just in case anyone hasn't heard of the legendary Nuzlocke Challenge, here's the creator's website (www.nuzlocke.com). Be sure and visit his site. Since the Nuzlocke Challenge is the original hard-mode for an overly easy game, it seems a logical place to start out the blog. Hopefully through this play-through I'll gain an audience that will stick through the multiple failures of future trial hard-modes.
Here are the rules:
1. Nickname all Pokemon
2. Only catch the first Pokemon encountered in any area
3. IF A POKEMON FAINTS, YOU MUST DELETE IT.
These are the original rules used by Nuzlocke in a FireRed run. I tried this once about six months ago on Sapphire, and lost at the fifth gym. Needless to say, it's insanely difficult. I'll be starting this in the next day or so. Just for the record, I've never played Pokemon White before. Feel free to comment away.
