If you want to take advantages of loopholes like that you can.
Being from Nuzforums itself, I can safely say that its more a strategy than breaking the rules. If it exists in the game, then it's viable. One Nuzlocker used the No Dupes clause to his advantage, ensuring he'd get a Murkrow by catching a Zubat, evolving it, and finding a Psyduck and evolving it, ensuring that the only non-dupe would be Murkrow (which he cheesed Mewtwo with, which was very satisfying considering his rules).
On that note, if I can get Randomized Red working, then I think I'll do a run of that.
