This is really helpful! But is it ok to get pokemon in trades?

Hmm, like in-game trades? In-game traded Pokemon are considered okay for me cos there's just too many valuable Pokemon to be gotten this way... XD but the ones that I do with real-life players are not.

Thanks, I'm glad I could be of a help! ^^

probably but this just means i have to be extra careful.
Most trainers I've seen have survived without using healing items and heavily rely on pokecenters so that's the challenge i decided to take too.

I bet the hardest Pokemon game to do a Nuzlocke on is Heart Gold/Soul silver... I've yet to try it myself, but it must be impossible not to lose someone against that Miltank... The last rule sure makes things more interesting... I'll try it.

I've never played the game before, but Johto seems like one of the easiest games to get through! ^^; Haha yes, the last rule gives muchhh more opportunity to catch new team members. After all some areas (like Mt. Coronet) are really huge and have so many different types of Pokemon in different areas.

Only the first few gyms are truly difficult on Johto... though the last time I played through I was so underleveled that the elite four out-leveled my strongest Pokémon by about ten levels when I first got there (and it was Lugia, which I had to use even when I hate using legendaries).

wow was it THAT easy?! :XD: I'm considering Nuzlocking Johto next, and i really don't know what to think. ^^;

It probably would be fun, though I don't recommend using chikorita or cyndaquil as your starters... the first one is absolutely frustrating and the second one is frustratingly easy... But nevertheless, Johto is the hardest regin to do a Nuzlocke on... the easiest would probably be Hoenn... I guess.

Good luck to you! Nuzlocke runs are so rewarding and yet so sad.

You will be missed Leonardo...

Oh dear...I just realized you have a Leonardo on your team too. My Leonardo was a squirtle on my team who met an unfortunate end at the hands of "bs critical hits."

i feel for you :( i nearly lost one of my team members to a critical hit (spoiler alert!) and my heart nearly stopped right there.

haha i thought Leonardo was a fitting name, given how Shinxes are based on lions and all that :P

Lol and I used Leonardo because I regarded squirtle as my ninja turtle.

Totally agree with the "get 2 tries to find something different" rule. I swear to Arceus if I see one more cursed Starly.....

You're welcome! I love your Pokemon work!

You're in the Ohana Islands challenge too? Cool! I lost the first round, but at least that gave me more time to work on my comic!

haha i kind of feel like i shouldn't be in the ohana islands challenge right now, cos i have so much on my plate and i really want to concentrate on my comic :( but i'm hanging in there! haha i totally get what you mean about getting more time to work on your comic :XD:

Yeah, I understand how you feel. I'm glad I'm actually not in the Ohana challenge. I've been really busy with school and my social life so I wouldn't have met the deadlines.
