Joe Merrickwith serebii.webreportedly contacted the Pokémon Company International and was informed that the corporate has no drawback with creators or followers enjoying by Nuzlocke’s guidelines, and that no creators have been kicked out of the creator-oriented program because of Nuzlocke playing.
Given the conflicting data, it is doable that when Keith and Krista positioned the order, the Pokémon Company interpreted enjoying Nuzlocke as equal to utilizing randomizers or different modification – some gamers make Nuzlockes by modifying the software program, which might be thought-about piracy.
in response to the consumer patterz possibly the corporate did not know Nuzlockes existed with out it (or that it did not need that content material on the collection’ official channel) and solely creators utilizing the adjustments could be “banned”.

Below is the unique observe.
In a joint podcast Keith and Krista — the duo that launched the Nintendo Minute on the corporate’s official channel — filmed a video answering questions from Patreon subscribers that typically pertain to their lives whereas working at Nintendo (they spent greater than 13 years there collectively).

In Nuzlocke video games, the sport code doesn’t change, the foundations are set by the gamers themselves and should not within the sport itself.
