    So, I had the idea for this last night, and liked it quite a bit, so I made this thread. Anyways...

    *ahem*

    Dust off those 3DSes, Tempers, and backup your saves; it's time to play Pokemon!!

    The CompetitiveLocke Challenge is exactly what it sounds like; a competitive Nuzlocke! Each participant will be pitted against each other with the goal of becoming the Pokemon Champion. HOWEVER!!~ Only one participant will be named Champion in the end.

    Anyone can join!! All you need to participate is:
    • A Hacked 3DS with Luma3DS Installed
    • A copy of either Pokemon X or Y.
    The hack being used for this CompetitiveLocke is Pokemon Neo X/Y (link here: https://gbatemp.net/threads/pokemon-neo-x-neo-y.388272/). We'll be using the Lite Version for this Challenge.

    If you need to know how to install this mod, refer to the Luma3DS wiki https://github.com/AuroraWright/Luma3DS/wiki/Options-and-usage

    You will also need to start with a fresh save for the challenge. For backing up your Pokemon, use PKSM (https://github.com/BernardoGiordano/PKSM)

    Rules

    The CompetitiveLocke will begin on August 4, a week from Friday. This is to make sure everyone who wanted to join has joined, in addition to necessary preparations regarding saves and modding. Speaking of which...

    Regarding Mods
    Players are allowed to install mods that change various assets like art, textures, trainer names, music, and the like. You can even post your custom assets in this very thread to share with other potential competitors! Think of it as an extension of trainer customization!

    What is not allowed, however, are mods other than Neo X/Y that alter Pokemon's Base Stats, Encounter Rates, Trainer Battles, or anything pertaining to the actual gameplay. Players who are caught using these types of mods will be disqualified from the CompetitiveLocke.

    With that out of the way, here are some resources for customizing your game:
    Modding Tools

    IMPORTANT NOTE: As much as I'll try to keep this organized, I cannot make sure that everyone is following the Nuzlocke rules, so I beg to all of you: please follow the rules. It's not fun at all when one person is messing up everything just by refusing to abide by the basic Nuzlocke ruleset.

    To join the CompetitiveLocke, simply make a post asking to join, and I'll add you to the Participant List.

    Good luck out there, everyone!

    Is it compatible to use Lumas LayeredFS and "game patching" for this?

    It should, yeah. The Full Version of Neo X works fine on my 3DS use LayeredFS and Luma3DS.

    Alright. Do you mind if I add you?

    Because it is admittedly a place for "fun and games," and I saw it in a similar light to the GBATemp Hunger Games. Also, wasn't sure where else to put it.

    Yeah, just keep in mind that some Rival Battles will auto-set all of your Pokémon's levels to 50, so it won't be that much of a help on a few occasions.

    Don't mind, but maybe add something like "(probably can only join after Sunday)"

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Btw, since it is my first nuzlockr, and I don't plan on managing to be the best, any tips to survive in neo X/y nuzlocke? (Also are clothing cheats allowed? Y'know, that add all clothes)

    Actually, I just re-read the rules. After August 5 I got no internet until end of September. I am terribly sorry.

    But I got an idea for a quite nice idea (yes an idea for an idea). If you think it could work I don't want to spoil anyone's surprise so mind if I PM you?
