With Nuzlockes, you never know when it's all going to end.  I thought for sure that

would be the nails in the coffin, but I survived that by the skin of my teeth.  Yeah, it was disheartening that it ended as soon as it did.  I'm still debating on what to do with my save.

I'm not really familiar with Pokemon nor Nuzlocke, but I was surprised at how SMT-ish this seemed.  The difference between victory and defeat was often one or two hits.  Is this offensive style of gameplay typical of Pokemon?

I wonder what a Nocturne Nuzlocke run would look like.

Lol I just love that the name is Lando XD

@ironmage - I can see the similarities between Pokemon and SMT in terms of recruiting demons/pokemon and how myriad elemental match ups come into play.  However, Pokemon is marketed more towards kids, so a normal playthrough (without using the self-imposed Nuzlocke restrictions) would be far far easier than any SMT game, including DemiKids. 

@Artimicia - Yeah, I had fun doing the Lando thing.  It started off as a gag because of my Halloween/Free Comic Book Day costume, but he took on a life of his own in the Nuzlocke.
