About Us, Rules, etc. . .

Welcome to Nuzlocke-Challenge!

:bulletred: What are we?
Nuzlocke-Challenge is a group dedicated to the Nuzlocke challenge. Don't know what it is? Look here!

:bulletblack: What do I submit?
Submit anything ranging to your own fan-comics, fanfics, fanart of the original, or your own custom Nuzlocke rules!

:bulletwhite: How do I join?
Just click the "Join our group" button.
- You don't need to ask to join!
- Join as a member and you will be able to contribute your Nuzlocke to the group; do not apply to the "Contributor" position, as that is a staff role within the group.

:pokeball: Any questions?
If you have any other questions, please note the club!


Submission Rules

:pokeball: If you have any questions or concerns applying to the group or your Nuzlocke, please notify us via note.

:pokeball:Please try to submit your Nuzlocke to the correct folder. If you don't, we will deny it and ask you resubmit correctly.

:bulletred: "Featured" is very specific - only the first entry of the main part of your Nuzlocke goes here.
:bulletwhite: "Nuzlocke Comics 7" and "Literature Nuzlocke" take the rest of your Nuzlocke proper, (including written and picture logs,) as well as any side stories/bonus comics/etc. - with one exception, which is:
:bulletred: "Prologues and Background Info" should also be fairly straightforward, but one of our most common mistakes is people submitting prologues to "Featured" - so please be careful, prologues go here, not there! And of course, background info i.e. world-building fits here, too.
:bulletblack: "Nuzlocke Q+As". Fairly self-explanatory.
:bulletwhite: "Custom Nuzlocke Rules" has a similar problem - please submit rules here, not to "Featured"!
:bulletblack: "Artwork 2" is for just about everything else - cover pages, team profiles/ref sheets, memes, sketches, fan art/gift art, teasers/advertisements, etc. 'Cover pages' is underlined because those are also one of the most common things to be incorrectly submitted to "Featured".
:bulletred: Journals is exactly what it sounds like, a place for you to submit any Nuzlocke-related journals you've written
:bulletred: Resources are for "How to" and tutorials on the process. Coloring tutorials, panels, writing tips..etc etc.
"Is it a tutorial?"Put it in there.
"Step by step of the process?" Put it in there.
:bulletwhite: other folders are for group events and should not be submitted to otherwise.
Following these rules makes it easier for readers to find your comic!



:bulletred: PLEASE add a link to your title page and/or prologue on your first page comment section. The admins of this group do not have time to search through your gallery looking for them!

let us know about...
:bulletred: Shout-outs
:bulletwhite: Contests (your own or others)
:bulletblack: Any other information about Pokemon and Nuzlockes that we can spread the word!

:pokeball:PLEASE READ!:pokeball:
If you would like to affiliate, we only affiliate with groups that...
...are related to Pokemon comics/literature in some way! (Preferably related to Nuzlocke comics/stories, of course, but we like Pokemon in general)
...are not carbon-copies of our group, i.e. catch-all submit-your-Nuzlocke-here groups. If it's themed in some way so it's not catch-all, though, that's fine!
Thanks to everyone who joined the Secret Santa! We got a new record for the number of participants, wow!! I did not expect that, considering how many other Secret Santas there are this year. :'D

I sent out the assignments today. I sent them as Notes. If you can't find yours/didn't get it, please let me know asap!
Let's repeat the information that you need now that you have your assignments.

PokeBall Art Guidelines

:bulletred: There must be at least two characters in the image.
:bulletwhite: The image must be colored.
:bulletred: There must be some kind of background. If you absolutely can't draw "realistic" backgrounds, something with abstract shapes and colors is fine.

PokeBall Writing Guidelines

:bulletred: Use proper grammar and spelling. If you struggle with this, have someone else check over it.
:bulletwhite: At least two characters should appear in the story. Keep them in character.
:bulletred: The story must be at least 800 words.

PokeBall Both

:bulletred: Make the gift as nice as you hope the gift you receive will be!

PokeBall The submission period is December 24 - December 26. Please avoid submitting at any other time.

:bulletred: The point of the short submission period is that it will be like having a Christmas party. If you submit weeks before Christmas, I will ask you why and it will be very embarrassing.
:bulletwhite: Of course, if you are not online during the submission period, you can submit your gift earlier. Preferably the day before you leave.
:bulletwhite: Mandatory: When you finish your gift, put it in (or another online storage), so you won't lose it if your computer breaks. When it's in, it can also be submitted to dA from any device.
:bulletred: Not mandatory, but highly recommended: Send me the link, so I know that you did it and can send it to your giftee, in the case that you unexpectedly disappear.
:bulletwhite: Want to know more detailed times for the submission period? It starts when the 24th rolls around in New Zealand and ends when the 26th ends in western Alaska.

PokeBall Any more questions?

If you have any questions that aren't answered there, don't hesitate to ask!
We hope everyone will enjoy the event! F2U BULLET | Pikachu v2 - XMAS

I have a question: am I allowed to submit my character cameo journal here? I'd love to do more cameos.

I'm thinking of joining, but before I do I have a question; do I have to join the Discord server or is that just optional?

I would love to join in a collab, but at the last moment I always get cold feet and end not participating...:( (Sad)
