Seeing as how well received my Pokemon X nuzlocke challenge was, I'm going ahead with a new one, but this time in my second favorite pokemon game, HeartGold Thank you to @KKG @Dreamer @Judgement as well as anyone else for reading along and enjoying it! @Pacquiao8 I know you hate nuzlocke challenges but I said I was gonna keep tagging you anyway, especially when i find a pokemon worthy of being named Condoriano I'll be following the same rules as the last one, since it gave me a fun and somewhat difficult challenge: The #1 being that if a Pokemon faints, it's "dead" and must be released/never used again. First encounter rule (catch the first Pokemon each route) but am also using the duplicate clause (if I already have it captured, I get another attempt) I am NOT allowed to use any items, but I'm allowing Pokemon Center visits because if you break an arm, you can't drink a magical potion and all is well, you see a hospital. I have to nickname every Pokemon I capture to build a stronger bond with them, so in the event one of them "dies" I feel sad Absolutely NO use of an EXP Share or the Daycare, again to build a bond with my Pokemon. A lot of the game will be a grind-fest of training, but it'll be worth it! Gift Pokemon are allowed from NPC's, but I'm not allowed to make any online trades (obviously) Event Pokemon are also allowed, just not Legendaries 'Battle Scene' is on 'SET' and not 'SHIFT' so whatever Pokemon I have in battle, stays until I can switch them out, for an extra challenge Shiny's are allowed to be captured/used because the chances of encountering 'em is very, VERY low (I've only ever encountered 4 shinies in my Pokemon Career) Since I'm not a very creative person, I may some some repeat/similar nicknames depending on what pokemon I come across, but since HeartGold has much different encounters than X, it shouldn't be too difficult. One last thing, now that I'm living alone, I will be working much more so will try to find time to play through and post my "days" but it will probably take a little longer than it did with my X adventure. Of course I'll post any updates if I go too long without a new :day" posted Hope you all enjoy this adventure with me! I had a lot of fun with X but I think this one will be greater since it's my second favorite pokemon game to play!
