I used to love doing Nuzlocke runs and beat 2 different games with them and now I've heard of this new one people have been trying called egglocke. So I look up the rules and it honestly doesn't look that bad to me. But the feedback I'm seeing about it is clearly suggesting otherwise - people saying its harder than nuzlocke and the consensus is that its really damn hard. So obviously I'm misreading or misunderstanding the rules.

Can someone sum up for me what exactly makes it so difficult? or suggest what I might be misreading/misunderstanding that is making it appear not that tough?

1) You only get six pokemon, instead of one per route.
2) You can't ever replace a fallen team member, which gives you less options and makes the run much more difficult.

I'm doing an egglocke run right now, and I dont think its all that hard.

The difficulties though, are mainly that:

1) You only get 6 pokemon. If one faints, you're down to 5. You can't replace it with another pokemon at the next route.

2) Most egglockes are blind/random eggs. So your entire experience is largely dependent on what pokemon people decide to send you. If someone sends you a gabile, that's great! If they send you a luvdsic...uh oh...

Heres my egglocke if you wanna follow along:

It doesn't help that some trainers ( especially Korrina and her Lucarios) Can mess you up really badly if you don't have the right pokemon types...
