Nuzlocke Diamond: My Rules by ky-nim Nuzlocke Diamond: My Rules by ky-nim
EDIT: Clarified the first rule. People kept asking if the boxing = death. Ingame I had a DEAD box in which I kept my dead nuzlocke Pokemon. Any Pokemon I caught that were sent to the PC automatically are NOT DEAD.

Because people were curious on what my nuzlocke rules were.

Please comment if you have any questions!

I couldn't really trade but I guess if you need to trade something you can.

Prize Pokemon should be ok

I'm trying to use your rules in x n y, and I just wanted to clarify, route 2 I got a zigzagoon- which got killed in the second encounter by a shiny zigzagoon. I caught the shiny, but I can't use it to battle because it was second right?

It's also a game over and you have to start over. Even if you lost to a level 1 pidgey with type disadvantage against you.

Sounds nice :) I might gonne play this Nuzlocke game too :) Though I don't fully understand rule 4.2. If you catch the first pkmn in the field at starting point. (for example, you choose a Turtwig) it's not possible to encounter another Turtwig. or is it just per route you catch one (first encountered) pkmn? for example at route 2, your first encounter is a Starly, you catch it and you walk on and come accross another starly, you cannot catch that one. but then you can almost never find duplicates if you are only allowed to catch one pkmn per route. only if you encounter another starly at route 3 for example. is that what you mean? did that made snese? XD (sorry English is not my first language)

So yes, you catch one pokemon per route. If you encounter a duplicate pokemon in another route, you can go for another encounter to catch a different pokemon

I have a question. You specifically state, in both nuzlocke runs, that you cannot catch another Pokémon from an "evolution line" as opposed to "evolution tree". Does this mean that, for example, if you have a Silcoon and you find a Cascoon (two different lines in the Wurmple tree), you could catch the Cascoon (provided that all other conditions for catching it were met)?

Would it be okay to catch the legendary in your game but not count it in your Nuzlocke challenge?

Some people make it a requirement to take out legendaries in order to complete the run. She isn't doing that, but I'm pretty sure she plays on an emulator anyway, so there's little reason to catch them.

Im going to make an emerald nuzlocke and you were the inspiration of it (i hope you'll not be insulted if it turns out shitty).

I'll also need your permission to use your rules cause yours is the best rules.

Just curious, what did you do for Iron Island, when Riley was supposed to give you the Riolu Egg? Did you only take it because everything else you fought died? I ask this because I'm thinking about starting a Platinum Nuzlocke as my very first one (did have one for White, but I quit that quickly. XP) And I just f**king love Riolu/Lucario. I'm not ashamed.

Does the no item rule count outside of battle? (e.g curing poison so your pokemon doesn't die) Or is it just only pokemon center that can heal you?
Reply
:iconky-nim:
ky-nim Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012   Digital Artist
Only Pokemon center.

In White, I allow nurse/doctor NPC heals as well

Ok how does team building work? Do you see how far you can go with the first 6 pokemon you catch or is it still a swap/preference thing.

If your starter dies in the very first battle and you have no other Pokemon do you just start a new game or catch a new pokemon then box the starter?
