:pokeball:PLEASE READ!:pokeball:
If you would like to affiliate, please ASK US first! We only affiliate with groups that are related to NUZLOCKES and POKEMON COMICS in general!


About Us, Rules, etc. . .

:pokeball: Welcome to Nuzlocke-Challenge! :pokeball:

:bulletred: What are we?
Nuzlocke-Challenge is a group dedicated to the Nuzlocke challenge. Don't know what it is? Look here!

:bulletblack: What do I submit?
Submit anything ranging to your own fan-comics, fanfics, fanart of the original, or your own custom Nuzlocke rules!

:bulletwhite: How do I join?
Just click the "Join our group" button.
- You don't need to ask to join!
- Join as a member and you will be able to contribute your Nuzlocke to the group; do not apply to the "Contributor" position, as that is a staff role within the group.

:pokeball: Any questions?
If you have any other questions, please note the club!


:pokeball: If you have any questions or concerns applying to the group or your Nuzlocke, please notify us via note.

:pokeball: Please try to submit your Nuzlocke to the correct folder. If you don't, we will deny it and ask you resubmit correctly.

:bulletred: "Featured" is very specific - only the first entry of the main part of your Nuzlocke goes here.
:bulletwhite: "Nuzlocke Comics 4" and "literature Nuzlocke" take the rest of your Nuzlocke proper, (including written and picture logs,) as well as any side stories/bonus comics/etc. - with one exception, which is:
:bulletblack: "Q&A Nuzlockes". Fairly self-explanatory.
:bulletred: "Prologues and background info" should also be fairly straightforward, but one of our most common mistakes is people submitting prologues to "Featured" (and vice versa, submitting first pages here) - so please be careful, prologues go here, not there! And of course, background info i.e. world-building fits here, too.
:bulletwhite: "Custom Nuzlocke Rules" has a similar problem - please submit rules here, not to "Featured"!
:bulletblack: "Artwork 2" is for just about everything else - cover pages, team profiles/ref sheets, memes, sketches, fan art/gift art, etc. 'Cover pages' is underlined because those are also one of the most common things to be incorrectly submitted to "Featured".
:bulletred: other folders are for group events and should not be submitted to otherwise.
Following these rules makes it easier for readers to find your comic!


:bulletred: PLEASE add a link to your title page and/or prologue on your first page comment section. The admins of this group do not have time to search through your gallery looking for them!

let us know about...
:bulletred: Shout-outs
:bulletwhite: Contests (your own or others)
:bulletblack: Any other information about Pokemon and Nuzlockes that we can spread the word!
:pokeball: Nuzlocke-Challenge awards :pokeball:
Nominations ballot count: 20

Nominations are coming in nicely, though we could always use more!  Just a few tiny things from what's come in so far:
--When you send your nominations in, we would greatly appreciate you linking to the users you're nominating!  That will make things much easier on our end - we may accept every single submission that makes it in to the group, but that doesn't mean we follow every Nuzlocke closely enough to recognize every nomination!
--A small reminder that all the character awards, particularly the 'protagonist' award, are available for Pokemon as well as humans!  Obviously the main character drives a Nuzlocke, but I've been a bit surprised at how few Pokemon have been nominated.

The ballot and full instructions are available here.  Keep 'em coming, trainers!

:pokeball: Monotype tournament :pokeball:
Battles concluded: 62 / 162

The end of the month is approaching quickly!  In the interest of getting as many battle in as possible, I will be extended the deadline slightly so that the tournament ends on a Sunday, namely August 3rd - that way, people can use that final weekend to get in as many remaining battles as possible.

I am currently composing notes to everyone who has two or fewer battles from their schedule completed thus far, (eleven people total,) so hopefully people who forgot they signed up will be reminded. =-)  People who don't respond in a week or so will have their battles blanked as draws.

As of right now, even if we only gave prizes to the top eight participants, (and we plan on giving prizes to more if possible,) the cutoff would be at just six points!  Since that's fairly low considering a 6-0-6 record would still get you 12pts before handicaps, there's still a large opportunity for people to get into prize territory!

Speaking of handicaps, those were calculated based on each player's total schedule.  If we get to the end of the month and there are still a bunch of uncontested battles I will recalculate handicaps based on the battles that were complete, and will likely go to an 'average points' scoring to level the playing field between people who completed their schedule and those who didn't.

Finally, since we now have two events going on, in the interest of keeping inboxes organized I'll request that all battle replays be sent to my personal account exclusively from now on so our group inbox can focus on the awards nominations.  Thank you in advance!

Oh hey! I finished the pic to the Gotta Draw 'Em All contest by :icondswalton:
It's a normal drawing (paper pencil), would it be ok if I take a pic of the drawing or does it have to be on a tablet-like drawing file? ^^; (I just made no snese there lol)

I'm redoing my comic about my Nuzlocke Challenge on Sapphire. However, with the new upload on DeviantArt, it is now possible to create a Motion Book. I don't know if I'll do that since it seems difficult to use, but my question is: can Motion Book be posted on the group?

Another question, are there any rules concerning submitting? As in:
Can we only submit "X" amount a day?
