Greetings fellow trainers! I am sure the hype has built up to critical mass for most of you over this game and honestly it has been the same for me. I kept myself from looking anything unofficial up this time around and honestly I am quite happy that they kept most of the new Pokémon under wraps before release because this will let me do something I have not been able to do in a long time, play my first play through truly blind! But that is not all, I will be running this with a bit of risk, I will be running a modified Nuzlocke rules set for this run. - Catch 1 Pokémon per differently named map region. Since random encounters are pretty much gone I am allowing myself to pick from what I first see when arriving in the area. - Only Pokémon new to Scarlet/Violet can be used. This will include older Pokémon that got new evolutions that I know about (like Girafarig). Now I don't know all of the Pokémon that got new evos this time around so I will just go with what I become aware of as I play. - Downed Pokémon will be boxed as soon as possible. - No duplicates unless they have a spit evo of some kind. - No gift/legendary Pokémon used in combat if at all possible. I honestly love Koraidon but they will be my hang out and transport friend for this and will not be joining battles if I can avoid it. Now this is important: I will be revealing images, moves and other data about new Pokémon as I add them to the team. If you dont want spoilers at all for the games and want to enjoy it blind like I am please dont read past this post! I will be spoiler tagging everything so its not seen at first glance if you want to avoid stuff. Also please don't post spoilers of things I have yet to see below as that would kinda go against the spirit of this. Whew that was a lot to get through, now onto the adventure ahead!
