Default Pokemon Nuzlocke Run

I started a Nuzlocke Run a few days ago and noticed how easy it was, so I decided to start over and add a few new rules of my own. I've already cleared the 1st Gym Badge and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

Original Rules:


1. If a Pokemon faints, you must release it.

2.
You're only allowed to catch the first Pokemon you see in an area.

My Added Rules:


3. Battle Style changed to Set.

4.
You must nickname all of your Pokemon.

5. You may not evolve your Pokemon.

6. You may not catch duplicate Pokemon, or Pokemon that you've had at one point in the game.

7.
You may only heal your Pokemon using the Pokemon Center.
- Items such as Antidotes and Quick Claws are permitted.

8.
After you encounter your first Pokemon in an area, you must run from any other Pokemon you find in that same area. (No Grinding)
- You cannot fight back under any circumstances, even if you cannot run away.

9. Each time you defeat a Gym Leader, the highest level Pokemon in your party must be released.
- If you have 2 Pokemon that share the highest level, you may choose which to release.


Any ideas/suggestions?

In HG/SS?

That sounds pretty hard.

I'm guessing "area" means each route/forest/cave?

Seems like an interesting challenge, but if you can't grind your Pokemon (Rule 8), this is probably going to be next to impossible. Victory Road/The Elite Four will slaughter you.

I like Rules 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, & 9. Rule 8 is too extreme and Rule 4 doesn't really do anything. Coming up with nicknames is easy.

An area is considered a new route/forest/cave. Rule 4 was put into place so you develop a bond with your Pokemon and care if they die.

I can see what you mean now by no grinding being too tough. I just got slaughtered by Brawly in Sapphire. My Mudkip was killed by a LV14 Machop early, then his LV17 Machop quickly destroyed my almost all Normal-Type team.

Gonna see how far I can get in Silver without grinding now.

I honestly don't do non-Nuzlocke runs anymore. Vanilla Pokemon bores me now. Good luck on yours broski, enjoy getting slaughtered because of Rule 8.
