@Octane I think we set it up that way to expand variety. Lord knows in Lockes you barely see the rarer things.

@Knuckles-Fajita True. Does make them more special though. I like to do the mono-type runs, I can still do that.

@Knuckles-Fajita @Octane I've read your dialogue a few times now, but I still don't understand. Anyone cares to explain what you're on about? Nuzlockes, AreaLockes...?

A special kind of self-imposed challenge for Pokemon games.

@toiletduck Yeah, what @DarthNocturnal said. For a Nuzlock run; You're only allowed to catch the first Pokemon you see on a route, and once a Pokemon faints you're not allowed to use it for the rest of the game.

@toiletduck Because it makes the games challenging, something GameFreak is incapable of doing

It's like a no-hit run in MegaMan; torture for the fun of it.

Ah now I think I get it. I used to play 96 stars in Super Mario World SNES with my friend while we weren't allowed to pick up any power ups like mushrooms or whatever. That sure became hard in certain levels...

I've done some Nuzlocke runs myself but I kind of got bored of them. The two things that the challenge is for is to increase the challenge and to make you use Pokémon you don't normally use. The problem is that it doesn't fully accomplish either. I haven't watched any Nuzlockes for a while because people just grind to make sure no one dies anyway. There are much better ways to make the game difficult.

I'm having much more fun just playing how I always play: by filling the Pokédex. As soon as Pokémon reaches its full evolution, I switch to another Pokémon. Most Pokémon evolve before reaching Lv. 40 so I'm usually hugely underleveled against Elite Four. I also haven't used Revives for years.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

Legitimate request for the game to adhere to.

Unlike FR/LG, that decided the entirety of the original game's soundtrack was all that needed to be remixed, resulting in a grand total of 4 battle themes (Wild, Trainer/TeamRocket, GymLeader/EliteFour and Champion), I want this game to at least remix the Team Rocket theme.

Because nothing will suck more than one battle theme for trainers including the villains.
