Approved by Mario With Lazers 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.
