How about traded Pokes from NPC's?

Well, that depends. The only official rules of the nuzlocke are the core two rules. All other rules that are applied are the player's choosing, so you could have a rule that says "No traded Pokemon, no exceptions" or a rule that says "No RL trading, In-Game trades are allowed" and vice versa.

Would you not count the "run out of pokemon - you lose" a core rule? I certainly was under the impression it was.

Well, if you run out of ALL Pokemon, in the box, the day care, or wherever, that would be a 100% Game over. If you just White Out but have pokemon in the box, you can always use the pokemon in the box.

Just for shits and giggles, I'm contemplating doing a Gotcha Force Nuzlocke-ish run. I'm trying to figure out how I should go about it, since deaths are far more common in GF than in Pokemon. Not to mention that you can't grind the same way you can in Pogeymanz.

I should totally do a Shin Megami Tensei Nuzlocke. That'll totally work out ok right?...right??

Taking a break from FE1, for the FE8 draft instead

@Using three or less Pokémon:

I finished an Emerald playthrough with a Sableye and a Blaziken. The rest were HM slaves.

[up]

That'd actually be pretty cool.

Which game? If any of them are as hard as Strange Journey or the first SMT than best of luck to you. How would fusion work under the Nuzlocke rules, though?

Doing a pearl run right now, using only the vanilla rules, except I'll be putting pokemon in a box called GRAVE instead of releasing them:
Current Pokes:
DIRK (Golbat) 223 (it leveled up as I was typing this)
Moves: Confuse Ray, Wing Attack, Pluck, Bite
PYRO (Monferno) 19
Moves: Fury Swipes, Mach Punch, Flame Wheel, Rock Smash (This move probably wasn't a good choice)
BRUISER (Bibarel) 18
Moves: Swift, Pursuit, Quick Attack, Water Gun
SCOUT (Staravia) 18
Moves: Endeavor, Double Team, Quick Attack, Wing Attack

Badges: Coal
Area: Eterna Forest (I'll be grinding here for a while because of the free healing after every battle)

Dead Pokes:
HEAVY (Bidoof) 14: The first to die. Killed by Pachirisu's bide.
SHINER (Shinx) 14: Also killed by Pachirisu's bide. Best Moment: One shotting every one of Roark's pokemon with PYRO.

I wasn't playing with Nuzlocke, and I just traded with myself using a ROM.

Failure to level grind got me wiped out at roxanne

Sara (The Main Character) goes back to her hometown to ask for another pokemon from the professor. Since her rival took the Grass pokemon (fancy that...) and she took the fire pokemon (R.I.P.) that really leaves her with... Mudkip

I've decided to Nuzlocke Fire Red after I play White for a few months.

My first run-through of white will be a blind Nuzlocke. Fun.

—reads rules—

Is it bad that I do the one gender rule in any of my games regardless?

No, it's not. You can add as many or as little rules as you want to this challenge, the only core ones are the first two. Heck, even the guy that created this thing has a 'No Legendaries' policy even though it's not in the core rules.

Bugsy the silcoon was violated by a rogue Taillow. The peck critically hit and killed him in an instant.

In revenge I used Supersonic with Screech the Wingull and laughed as the taillow slowly killed itself

That sucks.

Currently trying to get a ponyta to replace Pyro. There's only one route left where I can still catch it, wish me luck.
