Doing everything exactly opposite from "The Mainstream" is the same thing as doing everything exactly like "The Mainstream." You're still using What Everyone Else is Doing as your primary point of reference.

The indecipherable Codex SeraphinianusThis is incredibly interesting... For some reason, it reminds me of "The Humument", a very interesting, stylistic, surrealist book
Hey spags, thought we'd try something different here in RPG-land. Hopefully you guys consider Pokemon a roleplaying game, and if not, what the fuck do you call it?
Anyways, in case you are wondering what "Nuzlocke Mode" means, it means that I am following a few special rules to make Pokemon more challenging and interesting:
1. Once a pokemon faints, it is dead. No reviving, no anything. You can either choose to keep it in a box permanently, or release it as soon as possible (I chose the former)
2. When you enter a new area, route, or whatever, you must catch the first pokemon you see. If you can't catch it, or it dies, well, sucks for you. You may only catch the first pokemon you see in an area, and no others.
3. If you "white out" (run out of pokemon), you are dead. Game over. Yep.
4. Give nicknames to every pokemon you catch, it helps you become more attached.
This will be played on FireRed Version, but it works on any pokemon game of the normal style, as far as I know. So, yeah, wish me luck, here we go!
This seems like an interesting way to play. Though it would involve a lot of grinding to make sure you don't actually white out in Gyms and the like (and possibly need to use lots of repels).
Also, the 2nd rule seems like it may need to be bent you want to catch some of the pokemon that only turn up once per game (like Mewtwo or the legendary birds). I think what I'd replace the second you can only catch one of each Pokemon per game (ie only one pidgey, one ratata (etc) and when they faint you can't replace them with another pidgey or ratata). Even make it so you can't catch evolved versions too.
Either way, I may have to try a more difficult attempt.
Irritating and confusing people is the bread and butter of this place, Nekk.Hehe, nope, just me being dumb :P
i just thought, perhaps, i was missing something...
I don't think anyone's annoyed NEKK, I just don't think anyone really gets it.I am honestly not totally sure what I was thinking, EoC. I learned about Nuzlocke and thought it'd be interesting, but if I am the only one who cares, I could always just host it on some blog or something where it wont bug everyone else on the forum. I was thinking of ending it anyway, even before the save got fucked up, just for the sake of not irritating/confusing people, so I guess it's just the way it worked out. Oh well, its not a huge deal, let's just leave this thread and move on :P
I mean, I play Pokemon and I still don't get it. Don't let that stop you though, if you feel like starting a second save file. If you're having fun with it, do it the fuck up.
I wanna be the very best, the best there ever waaaaaaasI think its more that some of us have no clue whats going on here. By the time pokemon came out i was 17 and therefore never really understood or cared about it.Despite it having been a pretty big fad when it started out, they are fun games, regardless of age
Now I have all the bloody game music AND the first cartoon's theme in my head ALL AT ONCE!@!!!!!!!!!!!!@#$$%@$#%#$%!@#$@
