Thread: Fun runs other than Nuzlocke?

    Question Fun runs other than Nuzlocke?

    What are some fun runs that aren't about difficulty but about having fun?

    Can we list some of the more popular runs on Bulbapedia? The only run I can find is Nuzlocke.

    Monotype Runs- Go through the game using only one type
    Solo run- go through the game using only one Pokemon

    Monotype run - Go through the game with only one type.
    Solo run - Go through the game with only one Pokemon.
    Basic run - Go through the game with only un-evolved Pokemon.
    Randomizer run - Catch first Pokemon on each route while using a Randomizer. (Usually only played on ROMs and often paired with Nuzlockes.)
    Speed run - Finish as quickly as possible (Usually before you fall asleep).

    I wouldn't say this is a "popular" one but I think there variations similar to the Nuzlocke that I've seen some people talking about in which you play the game as if you were N, whereby you release all you Pokemon but for one after each gym etc.

    The Joey Challenge- It is a variation of the solo run however, you can only beat the game with a Rattata.
    Team Rocket Challenge- Beat the game with Pokemon only Team Rocket uses.

    The weakness challenge was recently invented by yours truly. You can only use Pokemon weak to a ceartain type, and that type has to be one of the gyms.
    Randomnizer and non-nuzlocke Metrollnomes are also fun.

    Speed runs. You can complete yellow in 2hours (0minutes if you use glitches), or Crystal in 3hours 24 minutes (all the way to Red). I wouldn't say this was a "popular" run, there being a few people in the world that do it, but it sure is interesting to watch.

    Egg Scramble? Assuming you had a way to get all the eggs.

    My favorite is a game of chance, You catch pokemon nuzlocke style, but when you face a gym leader, or your rival then you have a deck of cards and the four suits determine your moves and if you want to switch or heal you flip a coin, heads you can, tails you can't. My friends and I play this as a full nuzlocke too, so if you fail that coinflip, it might be all over

    The Scrabble challenge. Fainted Pokemon are dead, as in a Nuzlocke, but the first letters of the names of all your party members must spell out a word. No nicknaming, and the letters must be in order, so it is very difficult to swap around your team. Just so it works early game, you don't need to form a full word if you have two or fewer Pokemon. For example, it's acceptable to have Oshawott and Patrat as long as you have no other Pokemon, but the next Pokemon you catch must form the word, such as Patrat Oshawott Purrloin (Pop). If by evolving a Pokemon becomes incompatible, such as Yanma Ekans Lombre Lapras Omanyte Whismur becoming Yanma Arbok Lombre Lapras Omanyte Whismur, you must get to the nearest PC and form a new word ASAP.

    I've never actually tried this, mind you, so I have no clue how well it will work.

    There's the Wedlocke, which I just started out doing a little while ago. Got the idea from Marriland. Very much like the Nuzlocke, but the pokemon need to be kept in male-female pairs. Like, you have your starter (say male) and on that first route, you need to catch the first female pokemon you run into. (Say Chikorita and Sentret) You can only switch from Chikorita to Sentret in battle, and if Sentret dies, Chikorita has to avenge her. If Chikorita dies, too, after the battle, you either release/box them, and pick a new pokemon of either gender, then catch them a mate at the next route.

    Bad description. Ugh. Just see Marriland. lol.
