...a Nuzlocke of Pokemon X.

For those not familiar with the term, it's a class of self-imposed challenges that some players dare upon themselves while playing a given game of Pokémon (usually for repeat playthroughs).  It basically boils down to three core rules:

1 - Pokemon who faint in battle are declared "dead" and removed from the active party.
2 - Restrictions on which Pokemon a player can catch and use in their party.
3 - Nickname all Pokemon.

Basically it makes Pokemon feel less like Pokemon and more like a 'roguelike'.  Players who challenge the game using these rules are called 'Nuzlockers'.

Now there are a lot of variations on how to Nuzlocke Pokemon (you may notice that rule #2 is phrased in very broad terms).  I've heard of "Wonderlocke" (Wonder Trade all caught Pokemon and use whatever you're given in exchange), "Egglocke" (breed all caught Pokemon and use the offspring), and "Wedlocke" (catch only male/female pairs, in compatible Egg groups) personally, but the Nuzlocker is free to establish the exact rules for themselves.

Now while I do respect the concept of a Nuzlocke run, I don't personally believe the ruleset really fits the core game design of Pokemon.  So, for my run, I will be playing by my own customized set of rules.  (Don't worry, I've had plenty of time to think them through.)

The first hint is that I will refer to this as a "Zorualocke" run -- but I'll post the full rules and details as I actually record them.

Wish me luck, guys :)
