Which game is hardest to Nuzlocke?

Out of any of the 3rd and 4th Generation?

None of them. A nuzlocke run is only hard depending on what rules you follow and what restrictions you place on yourself. The game you do it in doesnt matter.

My vote goes to Pearl or Diamond. Neither of them are particularly forgiving in the "variety of available doods" department.

Apparently Platinum's the hardest.

Not Platinum. Platinum's easier than D/P, and you can get an early Gible which basically wtfpwns the game balance.

Also, no PKMN game is hard under any circumstances, unless you have a rule which prevents you from powerleveling.

I once did a proof-of-concept Charmander solo in FireRed, with the following rules:

- no trading
- no items in battle, including held items
- only Scratch and Ember

It was easy. I was level 40 before I got to Viridian City for the first time.

Of course grinding forvever makes it easy. Look at all the solo runs running around. One of my rules for Nuzlocke is no grinding to a higher level than the next Gym Leader's strongest mon.

Ah. Well, in that case, it's probably Platinum.

The way Platinum nerfed difficulty was lowering enemy levels, but some movesets are harder to compensate. If you level-match in D/P, you'll find it relatively easy. Level-matching in Platinum could be more interesting.

That or Yellow, because you could conceivably end up with no way past Brock.

I should probably back up that last sentence.

Pikachu/Pidgey/Rattata/Weedle/Pidgey is a perfectly viable team. If you end up with a bad catch west of Viridian and a bad catch in Viridian Forest, you're effectively screwed.

Yellow didn't have Weedle in it. Caterpie.
I don't think I'm missing out on life because mine is circumcised. It looks more streamlined and professional anyways Kev79x

...Yellow didn't have WEEDLE in it?

Everything I ever knew was a lie o_o
