I have come up with a new Nuzlocke variation: a Chesslocke! Here are the rules! RULES: GENERAL NUZLOCKE RULES: 1. When a pokemon faints, it counts as dead and must be released or put in a PC Box forever. 2. You can only catch the first pokemon you find on each route/dungeon/city/etc. 3. All pokemon must be nicknamed so as to create stronger emotional bonds between pokemon and trainer. (But there is a specialized rule that sort of changes this) SPECIALIZED CHESSLOCKE RULES: 4. The first pokemon caught must be called King. The second one must be Queen. Then Knight, Bishop, Rook, and Pawn. Then the cycle repeats with all the other pokemon you catch. And you must have six boxes, labeled King, Queen, Knight, Bushop, Rook, and Pawn. 5. When, say, King dies, you must replace King with another King from the King box. So you replace each dead pokemon with one from its respective box. This makes it so you don't have as many options for your team, so it makes it a little harder. If, say, Knight dies, and your Knight box is empty, catch another pokemon as soon as you can (legally) and it will be Knight. VARIATIONS: 6. Pawns should be able to choose between two moves at the first turn and then stick to one of them (when the pawn is on the 2nd/7th row it can make two steps instead of one) 7. Knights alternate one move in 1-4 and one in 2-3 (knights moves alternating black and white squares) 8. Bishops can only do 1-4 or 2-3, maybe the first bishop you catch can only 1-4, the second 2-3 etc. (bishops can't change the colour of their square), but you can go further and force an alternating sequence of moves, like 1-4-1-4- or 4-1-4-1- 9. Rooks can start with any move (e.g. 2) and then can only use the ones in the same row/column (e.g. 1-2-4) 10. Of course in this case you can't change the order of the four moves. 11. If your King (which would be your starter) dies, the challenge is failed. It would be great if you guys want go try this! If you think it's fun, tell your Smogon friends, tell your irl friends! Spread the word! I will be starting a Chesslocke challenge on Pokemon HeartGold soon and will be updating here with my party and such. If you have any questions, or need anything specified, just ask! I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have! Thanks to inanimate blob, DHR-107 and Manitary for the variation rules!
