This Nuzlocke was created by an anonymous female Pokémon fan whose favorite Pokémon is Greninja.
- If a Pokémon faints in battle, it gets three revives. After all three revives are used, it is "dead" and must either be released or permanently boxed. However, all Ghost-type Pokémon are already "dead", so they get unlimited revives if they faint. See http://nuzlocke.wikia.com/wiki/Revivable_Pokemon for more information.
- You can only catch the first Pokémon you see in a new area. No second chances if that Pokémon flees or faints.
- The trainer must be either a male named "Joseph" or a girl named "Mary". The default trainer in the story is Mary, but for those of you who aren't feminists, you could play as Joseph.
- You don't have to nickname your Pokémon if you don't want to.
- The Dupes Clause is allowed. See http://nuzlocke.wikia.com/wiki/Dupes_Clause for more information.
- If all your living Pokémon die without any revives left, you fail the challenge (unless you have a Ghost-Pokémon).
- If you make a mistake or a Pokémon dies permanently, do not turn off the game so you can jump back to where the mistake was made. This will cause the challenge to fail automatically. The only exception is if all your Pokémon die without any revives left, but this kind of reset is the part of the prologue where the angels said Mary could jump back to the beginning of the game.
On the island of Kanto, there lived a young Pokémon Trainer who was also religious. She always carried a pocket version of the Bible in their bag, and she strongly believed in God and angels. Her mother liked that her child was good, so when the Trainer was born, she was named Mary, after Jesus Christ's mother. One day, Mary got her first Pokémon from Professor Oak. Unfortunately, it wasn't very strong at first. She expected it to already know some strong elemental attacks, but it didn't; not yet. Suddenly, three little angels-in-training, who had been watching over Mary the whole time, came down from Heaven and warned her that Pokémon can die like humans. At first, Mary panicked, but the angels made a deal with her: if a Pokémon died in a battle, one of the three angels would use a mysterious ability exclusive to angels called Revival Power to save that Pokémon's life, but then that angel would have to save their Revival Power for the next dying Pokémon. If all three angels exhausted their Revival Power on one Pokémon, the Pokémon would die forever and become an angel in Heaven, except for the Lavender Town Ghost-types since they're already "dead". Also, to make sure the three little angels never got tired from reviving dead Pokémon, Mary told them she'll catch only the first Pokémon she saw in every new location. Finally, if all of her living Pokémon ran out of revives and permanently became angels, the three angels would have to return to Heaven and leave Mary behind forever, but they would give her a chance to jump back in time and start from the day she got her first Pokémon.
Our hero/heroine (whatever gender the player has chosen) who wishes their hometown had a church and says grace every night at the dinner table. After getting a starter, they met three angels-in-training who decided to help them on their long journey to be a Pokémon Master.
As the leader of the three little angels-in-training, Dora might have gotten her wings not very long ago, but she is the smartest member of the trio and can be told apart from the other two angels because her hair is straightened.
The youngest angel-in-training with a really cute voice, Flora's catchphrase is "Am I cute?" When the trio was getting their wings, Flora got her last because God said "Save the best for last".
