Back in the summer of 2010, I got hooked on the Nuzlocke Challenge. For those who don’t know what it is, a quick explanation is that you play Pokemon, but;

1- You can only capture the first pokemon you see in an area.

2- If a pokemon faints, it’s considered dead and cannot be used for the remainder of the run.

Many other challengers have added their own variants and additions to the rules, but these two have been at the core of them all. The initial run and many that followed chronicled their playthroughs with comics. I had my own run, first through Emerald, then in Platinum. Unfortunately, I had to stop updating the Platinum Run back in 2011, due to an increasing workload from school. I tried getting back into the groove during the summer of 2012, but spent the months doing construction work on Long Island and doing illustrations for my portfolio. Although it’s been quite a while since the last update, I hope to get back into it once I have the free time. For now, I’m adding the comics to this site for anyone that’s curious.

I strongly urge you to check out the original comic and site for a better explanation of the rules. It’s well worth seeing it and the many fan comics that it spawned
