Soul Link

Let's share the pain!

A Soul Link Nuzlocke is a brilliant twist on the standard Nuzlocke rules - as it involves co-operation with another player! The standard Nuzlocke rules apply:

1. You can only catch the first Pokemon in each area

2. If a Pokemon faints, it is considered dead and cannot be used again in the run.

However, here's where the twist comes in...

Each Pokemon you catch is paired with the Pokemon your partner catches on that route. If one Pokemon in a pair is boxed, then the other must also be boxed. If a Pokemon's partner dies, then it is also considered dead. A lot of planning is required to succeed in this type of run!

An optional rule that some players choose to include is as follows:

Players cannot have more than one Pokemon with the same primary type. For example, if you have a Water/Ghost type, you cannot also have a pure Water type in your team. You could, however, have a pure Ghost type. Enjoy!


here's an example...
