    SwSh Nuzlockes

    Has anyone Nuzlocked SwSh yet? Is anyone planning to? I'm considering doing that once I get it. :]

    I think seeing the Pokémon in the overworld will detract significantly from the nuzlocke experience. Nuzlockes have forced me to use Pokémon I wouldn’t otherwise and in some ways they grow on me. Now you can pick which Pokémon you encounter first so that element will be missing. That said, I aim to do a nuzlocke run at some point, and I’m sure it will still be fun.

    I did one the first run through i played. I treated the wild area as different routes. Was pretty fun. This game is actually challenging

    So I've never done a nuzlocke before, mostly because pokemon has always been a 1 save file game, so I didn't want to commit. But now the Switch has game profiles so I can have separate playthroughs and maybe stream a Speed Test nuzlocke in the future. But the pokemon are visible and you don't have the random encounters anymore. So it messes with the "catching only the first encounter in a route" rule. So how do you work around that?

    Normally I either just go after the first Pokémon that spawns, do the first Pokémon I encounter in the grass itself, or close my eyes and run around until I hit something.
