Hi! I am Hotdog41! And I will be doing my first Pokemon Nuzlocke!

I have decided to Nuzlocke Pokemon Ultra Moon. For the Alola games have been my favorites from what i have played. I know Pokemon Ultra Sun and Pokemon Ultra Moon are considered pretty hard to Nuzlocke, *cough* Ultra Necrozma *cough*. But I wanted my first Nuzlocke to be in a game I truly enjoyed!

Now with that out of the way, I wanted to set so ground rules for this run:
- First, of course the main two Nuzlocke rules will be in play.
- Any Pokémon that faints is considered dead, and must be put in the PC permanently. (I don't like the idea of releasing Pokemon when they die. So a dead box works for me).
- I may only catch the first pokemon encountered in each area, and none else. If the first wild Pokémon encountered faints or flees, there are no second chances.

And then some extra rules I have added for some spice:
- First, Some clauses will be in play so my life is not a pain, namely:
1. Dupes clause: I ignore pokemon of the same evolutionary line if I've encountered them already.
2. Gift clause: Pokemon received from NPCs do not count for that area's encounter.
3. Shiny clause: Shiny pokemon are free.
4. Pinwheel clause: Distinct subareas of an area count as their own. Will be specified during the run.

- I must nickname all caught pokemon.
- I am not allowed to use battle items.
- No Z-Moves allowed. (I don't think just nuking a single pokemon is very fair.)
- The game must stay in set mode at all times.
- Pokemon Refresh, Poke Pelego, and Roto Loto cannot be used.
- My Pokemon cannot be higher level than the highest level pokemon of the next Kahuna,Totem Pokemon, or Elite Four Member.
- Static encounters are allowed and count as that area's catch.
- I am allowed to trade pokemon with NPCs, but only if I have the required pokemon as a legitimate encounter.
- I can choose only ONE of Samson Oak's totem-sized pokemon. Dupes clause applies.
- Any Pokemon in an SOS chain can be caught.
- And finally no Legendary/Mythical pokemon are allowed.

And with that all covered I hope you enjoy my future playthrough and let me know which starter I should use or if you have any tips for me!

Comic artist. Idiot. Has far too many active projects for his own sanity. Unreliable when it comes to updates on his non-comic endeavours.
This isn't the correct place to put this. Try "Fan Challenge Runs" instead.

I'm not entirely sure, perhaps ask a mod? Though you could probably just ask them to move the thread itself, lol.

A strange Pokémon that claims to be both an artist and writer, yet almost never has any work to show for either.
Noticed this in the Tapatalk Archives section, I moved it over to the active FCR section in Lilycove Museum for you! Welcome to the forums, and good luck on the run :0 (Oh, and as starters go, I'm a Rowlet fan, personally!)

@Hotdog41 - pinged you here in case you lost your thread in the move.

As you said going for a level capped Set UM Nuzlocke as your first is quite brave. Best of luck! (And I'm personally a Litten fan though I are all solid options for this game).
