Gonna try another nuzlocke

Last Nuzlocke I did was HG a few years back (I posted a few blogs about it iirc). I started a Platinum one but got bored and then months later just restarted. This time, I think I'm going to try a White 2 Challenge mode Nuzlocke. The larger dex is appealing to me. Poison not damaging outside of battle is probably going to make it a whole lot easier, because Poison won't mean a death this time. Which is a shame, because it takes a little of the challenge away.

The rules I'll be using will be:

-Can only catch the first Pokemon in each area. Gift Pokemon count as the Pokemon in that area.
-Must nickname any Pokemon caught. (I always do this anyway :P)
-Any Pokemon that faints is dead and cannot be used anymore.
-No buying or using healing items. Can only use Pokemon centers to heal (not going to restrict my Pokemon center usage because I'll probably get frustrated and bored and just give up).
-No using Repels and no running from wild battles.
-Battle option must on Set and not Switch.

I'm gonna be using Snivy because Serperior is my favourite there's pure Water routes, so I'll definitely be able to get a Water-type at some point, and I don't like Emboar... Plus Serperior is bulky and can use stuff like Leech Seed (shame it doesn't learn Glare through levelling) and I realised from using Meganium in my HG Nuzlocke that support in Nuzlockes is really helpful. So there's that.

Cheren on Challenge Mode is going to be an actual bitch though. I've played Challenge mode a few times and every time I face Cheren I either have to use healing items or let most of my team faint. Obviously neither is going to an option this time.

Anyway, I might post some blogs about it, but I might not. Haven't decided yet, and Nuzlockes aren't the most interesting thing to read.

    Take the advice of someone still doing a Black 2 Nuzlocke. If you catch an Azurill, at least use it in the Aspertia Gym. It gets Charm at Lv.10, and that move is exceedingly useful in trolling Cheren's Work Up spammers.

    Yeah I used a Charm Azurill to beat Cheren before, but I had to heal it a few times iirc, which obviously I can't do here :/ We'll see anyway, I might get really lucky.

    This sounds like a nightmare. Limits yo, they suck.
