This is my own variation on the nuzlocke challenges. I find the fainting rule to be ridiculous if you actually want to have fun or finish the game in a reasonable amount of time. Sooo, this challenge is for all you who “catch em all” whenever you play. Try this method to reinvigorate the game for yourself.
1. The player may only catch the first Pokémon encountered in each area, and none else.
2. If the pokemon encountered would be a duplicate, may not catch it but the next one encountered. Capturing duplicates not allowed.
3. May not “grind up” a pokemon captured far below the team’s level.
Give every pokemon a nickname! no fainting rules! play the rest as normal!
