    Welcome to the 1st Smogon Nuzlocke Games!
    Credit to Inanimate Blob and Geodude6 for helping
    Credit to the Nuzlocke Forums for the original proposal


    The time has come to select 24 courageous tributes to compete in the Orange Islands' very own Nuzlocke Games! The tributes will be tested on their in-game and competitive pokemon knowledge. But remember, you will be using Mightyena and Gardevoir, not Drizzletoed and Tyrantiar! Regular nuzlocke rules appy.

    Tributes:
    24 tributes will be assigned a district (flavor purposes onky)(signups in this thread) from the people who signed up. They will be required to post updates within 72 hours of the first tribute reaching the next checkpoint. They will participate in elimination, one-chance battles on a regular basis. If there are more than 2 people left at the last checkpoint, a phase called the Grand Finale will begin See Grand Finale

    Checkpoints:
    There are 18 total checkpoints. The first tribute to reach a checkpoint may select one other tribute to battle in the style that Gamemaker Geodude and I have pre-determined. You may not move on from the checkpoint until Geodude6 or I say so. There is a TBD level cap for each checkpoint. You may go above this level with no ill effects, but will be unable to use that pokemon in an elimination battle.

    Sponsors:
    If you did not make the cut, or did not wish to battle, there will be sponsors. Sponsors start out with 1200 creds, and get 200 more at each checkpoint. Additionally, sponsors may bet on elimination battles to get more credits.To bet or gift post in the thread and me or Gamemaker Geodude will approve. Hack in any items or Pokémon you receive.

    Online Battles:
    All battles (unless agreed on by both players) will take place on Pokemon Showdown. Pokemon that die in online battle do not die in-game. The winner of an elimination battle may steal one pokemon from the loser. You must screenshot the pokes you will be using for them to count, however you may PM the movepools to me, g6 or blob if you don't want that public before a battle. You are immediately eliminated after losing an online match.

    Alliances:
    Two or more tributes may be in alliance. Alliances allow other tributes to "borrow" their pokemon for the Online Battles. Alliances may be broken at any time without warning.

    Grand Finale:
    If three or more tributes are left after the 18 checkpoints, the Grand Finale phase begins. Hint: If you die, keep watching because your role may not be over!



    Rules:
    You may only post 2 things in this thread. Updates, or Flavor. You may not post "GL Blob" or "darnit y didnt u winn blob", as that clogs the thread. Those posts will be subject to moderation


    Additionally, if you win, you are a Gamemaker next round.

    Checkpoints:
    All battles will be 4v4 singles, BUT if a challenger for whatever reason has less than 4 Pokémon, the battle will be adjusted accordingly. (ie, if yoshinite has the required 4 mons but Inanimate Blob has only 3 mons, then the battle will be 3v3 singles)

    1. After Roark (Lv 15, Roark's trump is level 14)
    2. After Galactic Eterna Building (Lv 23, Jupiter's trump is level 20 and these levels should be fine given that nothing in the chateau surpasses the mid teens)
    3. After Fantina (Lv 29, Fantina's trump is Lv 26)
    4. After Maylene (Lv 33, Maylene's trump is level 32)
    5. After Wake (Lv 39, allows for grinding 3 levels in the gym. Wake's trump is level 37)
    6. After Candice (Lv 47, Candice's trump is level 64 never mind I was looking at the rematch, her trump is level 44)
    7. After Giratina (Lv 53, Cyrus' trump is level 48 but he's tough as hell, Giratina is level 47)
    8. Before League (Lv 57)

    in. not so active in Orange Islands but Platinum is easily my favorite pokemon game.

    I just want some more clarity. Are you eliminated when losing an online match? Or is it just a consequence of having one of your mons stolen

    In. Not for me, but for my sister as she is 9 and thus can't join due to COPPA.

    And you are eliminated if you lose an online match.

    Eh, in. So this is basically a nuzlocke, upon reaching chekpoints you battle on showdown and whoever loses is out?

    What if you get to a checkpoint and no one else is there? Also, if a pokemon dies in the online battle do you have to release it in-game?

    This looks quite fun, and relatable to the Rival Challenge from a while ago. Unfortunately, I' l'm out of town with no DS until friday, so I'll settle for sponsorship instead.

    Good luck Nuzlockers! Do your best! But just one question about the Sponsor List. Shouldn't the Sun Stone be on the list for 700 creds? Because its not on there currently.

    Question about checkpoints. Due to the fact that there are 12 tributes but 13 checkpoints at minimum, and likely more after that, what will happen once the inevitable situation that only 1 tribute is left plays out? Does he or she win the Games?

    Just beat Roark. Not sure if that is still a checkpoint right now but I just wanted to put that out there. Will post proof and a bit more stuff via edit in a little bit. Have some quick stuff to do. Gl everyone else! Also, do I have to post a story telling or a narration of my Nuzlocke? Or is it preferred that I hide my information. Also, do I have to decide on who to challenge now?

    Here it is:
    Beat Roark (open)

    Yup, that's a checkpoint. Additionally, I would post your team so we can know if you met the level cap or not.
