Zombie-chew, I probably shouldn't have chosen you!
Reading these actually made me want to try a Nuzlocke run of my own. (Well, that and a particular soundtrack review I'm working on for the site.) I'm playing LeafGreen, and the first time went poorly enough that I started over shortly after getting my first badge. From my reading, it looks like people make up some of their own rules, which makes sense, since it's completely self-policed thing. So my two changes to the rules are that if somebody in-game wants to trade, I can catch someone to trade them, and that if the first Pokemon I see in a new area is someone I've already caught two of, I can try for someone else. I decided on that one after the third area in a row wanted to give me a Rattata. :)
