The Nuzlocke Challenge has only two===Core rules that the player must follow. These are referred to as the "core" rules, and are as follows:===
The Nuzlocke Challenge has only two rules that the player must follow, which are as follows:
* Any Pokémon that [[Fainting|faints]] is considered dead, and must be {{pkmn2|released}} or put in the [[Pokémon Storage System]] permanently (or may be [[migrate]]d or transferred with [[Poké Transfer]], as long as the Pokémon is never able to be used again during this run).
* The {{player}} may only catch the first Pokémon encountered in each area, and none else. If the first Pokémon encountered faints or flees, there are no second chances. If the first encounter in the area is a double battle, the player is free to choose which of the two Pokémon they would like to catch but may only catch one of them. This restriction does not apply to Pokémon able to be captured during static encounters, nor to [[Shiny]] Pokémon.
===Optional rules===
Though the above rules tend to stay consistent with all challengers, many optional variations and amendments to the rules have been created by players to further adjust difficulty. Many other rules exist other than those listed here; challengers adjust their personal rules according to their own preferences. AnyRegardless of thesethe challengesoptional canrules bebeing used, the run is considered a true Nuzlocke Challenge as long as the core rules are still in place.
