I'm currently attempting a Nuzlocke challenge on White.
Can only catch first pokemon in an area.
If it faints, it's to be released (I might break this rule if my starter dies and trade it to Black).
Must nickname all pokemon.
Battle mode on set (this one should make it much harder)
Started with Oshawott, because I picked Serperior on Black. Named him after the elemental lord of water in Azeroth, Neptulon. My first encounter, ended with him critting an unfortunate Patrat, and then another on the next route. -_-
Finally, in Striation City, I recieved a second pokemon. Pansear, who I don't have high hopes for. I named him Incenduis, after a lesser elemental of Ragnaros' army.
After a little bit of grinding in the Dreamyard and Striation gym, I decimated Cilan with Neptulon and Incendius, nothing new there. Taught work up to Incendius, to hopefully boost his pathetic offensive ability.
After that I ran back to the Dreamyard, and caught a Munna, who I named Jaina. Unfortunately, Jaina didn't last long, getting owned by the kids at that bloody playground, and I, being the sadist I am, was not even remotely fazed. I can't wait for one of my real team members to get owned, that'll teach me to not care.
On route three, I caught my next team mate. Quetz'lun the Pidove, after the Drakkari troll god. A little more grinding and a Team Plasma encounter later, I met Roggenrola the Roggenrola. Yeah, I forgot to nickname it. Meh, I'll still get attached to her and it'll still be tough when she dies.
To Nacrene City, and then to route 4, where I caught a Tympole, whom I also forgot to nickname. Yay for practically ignoring one of Nulzlocke's fundamental rules.
And that's about as far as I've gotten. More updates to come as I play on.
I'm also ditching the WoW nickname theme. It's too hard to keep thinking of names. xD
