:pokeball:PLEASE READ!:pokeball:
If you would like to affiliate, we only affiliate with groups that...
...are related to Pokemon comics/literature in some way! (Preferably related to Nuzlocke comics/stories, of course, but we like Pokemon in general)
...are not carbon-copies of our group, i.e. catch-all submit-your-Nuzlokce-here groups. If it's themed in some way so it's not catch-all, though, that's fine!


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" - 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, teasers/advertisements, etc. 'Cover pages' is underlined because those are also one of the most common things to be incorrectly submitted to "Featured".
:bulletred: Journals is exactly what it sounds like, a place for you to submit any Nuzlocke-related journals you've written
:bulletwhite: 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!
First, read these:


2. *here shortly!*


Then listen to one of these:




Then read this!


Okay, so R5/S3 will have all of you battling Dialga instead of each other!  So why do you still all have battle pairings and assigned terrains?

Instead of battling against your assigned "opponent", you will instead be teaming up with your battle partner, having your combined remaining teams doing their best to take down Dialga!  Yes, we know that technically speaking, Dialga will be fighting against a whole army of Pokemon, but that would be a bit too hard to expect people to show/write about all at once. X-D So you should focus on showing your team and your partner's team working together to take down Dialga (fine to pretend as if you're the only ones fighting against our evil time horse, though if you want to be ambitious, go ahead).

Dialga will essentially be in a rampage, and one of his attacks will damage the stadium early on such that the terrain-setting technology goes haywire.  That's why you all have different terrains that you are expected to show still! (That's our story anyway.  We just want to keep the variety up.) That said, considering the technology is on the fritz, you are allowed to show up to half of the battle as other terrains, including the stadium's terrain-less default setting.

In summary:
You are required to use all remaining Pokemon in slots 1-5 of both your and your opponent's team
You are required to use your assigned terrain for at least half of the battle
You are allowed to use the Pokemon in slot 6 of both your and your opponent's team
You are allowed to use extra terrains for up to half of the battle
You are allowed to use show more Pokemon and characters as cameos (ask the owners of course! Side contest participants [and anyone else down to just one or two remaining Pokemon] in particular might want to do this)
You are forbidden from reviving dead Pokemon for this fight
You are forbidden from using Celebi in the battle (the little onion fairy is for our plot!)
You are forbidden from exceeding 10 panels / 3500 words in your entries if you wish to avoid a size penalty (this limit is higher than previous rounds)

Finally, remember that Dialga is out to kill at this point.  We will still have head-to-head voting at the end of R5/S3, asking you all to vote on who showed the battle better.  The loser of each battle will still have one of their Pokemon killed, just this time we're saying it's Dialga that killed them instead of your battle partner.  Then we'll have our end plot, plus the runoff voting as needed to break the ties - the runoff voting will be "completely meta" in the sense that it's just for our administrative purposes for prizes and having no plot relevance or representation.

Hopefully that covers everything.... Ask away, I'm sure I probably missed some detail!

Would you mind if I were to post nuzlocke's hardmode comics here? I would give full credit to him, I've just always wanted the comics to be shared to people on deviantart.

I'm redrawing my Emerald Nuzlocke, REUNION, and resubmitting the pages as new deviations. I've only redrawn the title page and page one so far, so most of the original nuzlocke is still up in my gallery.

I'm in the ballot journal but since I reuploaded the title page after the journal was submitted, the link in the journal leads to a 404. Do you think someone could replace the old link to the title page with this?
