I usually try again with Pokemon I have in storage but when that fails I just finish regularly.

I give up. But I trade all my pokemon over to my 'main' game.

I don't get the point of saying it's a game over if you black out. I think of the pokemon in storage as members of the team, and so, unless I have nothing left in the PC, the Nuzlocke isn't over.

I set extra rules and clauses when I do a nuzlocke, but to me that's game over.

Then I reset and try again. (New game I should say.)

2 Rules: Pokémon is done if KO'd and 1st Pokémon per route. It hasn't happened yet (I'm on my first Nuzlocke) but if it does, I'll train 6 more Pokémon from my reserves. If and only if I run out of reserves (somehow, I have over 20 just sitting there), I'll decided that the Revives and Max Revives can be used as Continues, Toss 1 Revive/Max Revive for each Pokémon. (Also, I can't buy them, so I'm stuck with what the game gives me.)

Yeah, I'm a crossplayer. Deal with it.

There's no reason you have to call it game over when your principal team dies, that's what reserves are for.

I've never wiped on a Nuzlocke before so haven't had to choose before, but I'd definitely just unbox my reserves and keep going.
